Jaws of Defeat-America and Israel are going to lose the war in Lebanon
FrontPageMagazine.com ^ | July 31, 2006 | David Horowitz

Posted on 07/31/2006 5:09:06 AM PDT by SJackson

America and Israel are going to lose the war in Lebanon, and the American Left will have a lot to answer for.

The United States and Israel and every sentient being in the path of the Islamist crusade are teetering on the brink of a massive defeat in Lebanon and thus in the war on terror. Lest it be forgotten, this is a war that began with the Ayatollahs’ revolution in Iran in 1979 which established the first radical Islamic state whose masters’ war cry was “Death to America” and the establishment of a global Islamic empire. Nearly thirty years later, Iran is on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons and its imperial war is now being waged on Iran’s Lebanese frontier by its Hezbollah proxy. One month into the fighting which began with the attacks by Hamas and Hezbollah on the state of Israel, the scenario for the West’s defeat in this phase of the war is quite obvious and quite simple.

The appeasers of Islamofascism, who have been calling for a ceasefire and bewailing “civilian casualties” in Lebanon and Gaza, will succeed. Hezbollah will agree to turn over its arms to the pro-Hezbollah Lebanese army. The pro-Hezbollah UN will establish a security zone on Lebanon’s southern border to keep the area clear of non-government militias, of which the Hezbollah “militia” is the only one. The credulous in the Western camp will greet this as a victory for the peacemakers. But exactly the opposite will be the case.

According to a recent poll in Lebanon eighty percent of the Lebanese Arabs support Hezbollah. In other words, just as Hamas, which was created by the same Muslim Brotherhood that spawned al-Qaeda, is now the Palestinian government, so Hezbollah will emerge as the government of Lebanon. The Lebanese army will become the new Hezbollah “militia.” Only it won’t be a militia. It will be the terrorist army of a sovereign power, with the right to openly negotiate its arms deals with Syria and Iran. The next battle with Iran, in other words, will be World War III.

In fact, the next battleground in the spread of Shi’ia fascism is already in progress and aflame. It is Iraq, where Iran’s Shi’ia armies are already in the field under the command of the sheik of Sadr City, the America-hating cleric Moqtadar al-Sadr. Al-Sadr, it should be noted, is alive and in the field because the appeasers in this country, beginning with the Democratic Party but extending into the Bush State Department, stymied the first battle of Fallujah when al-Sadr was trapped and could have been killed and his militia destroyed. The Bush administration had to delay the attack until after Kerry’s defeat in the November 2004 elections in order to avoid the political complications that would have attended the battle in the midst of an election campaign.

But the first battle of Fallujah is only one of many defeats inflicted by the appeasers and abettors of Islamic imperialism in the West. The aid to the enemy within the Western camp has taken many forms, beginning with the hysterical and reckless attacks on the commander-in-chief of America’s forces as a liar and murderer, and the source of the terror that the Islamists create. Are there terrorists in Iraq? There were none there before George Bush created them. Is Hezbollah a Nazi army? It’s because the Jews “occupied” Palestinian lands. Of course, this is two lies in one. All Israeli “occupation” is the product of four aggressive Arab wars against Israel. When Israel withdraws – as in Lebanon – it is attacked. The source of the terror in Lebanon, as in Iraq, is to be found in the Koran and in the despotisms of the Arab Middle East. But the appeasement camp cannot face the reality that its enemy is implacable and its hatred uncaused by anything its targets – Jews, Christians, “infidels” – have done.

The division of America is the greatest threat to our ability to prevail in the War on Terror – and the Left knows this and is incited by it. America is not divided enough for the American Left, which is now in full purge mode in Connecticut, where it is attempting to bring down the one statesman in the Democratic Party who might re-unite this country in the face of its enemies.

Those who in the midst of these wars clamor for ceasefires with an implacable foe, those who call for withdrawals that would leave sovereign states in the hands of the terrorist forces, those who decry civilian casualties caused by the only forces in this war who do not target civilians, those Blame-America-Firsters who exploit the Abu Ghraibs on our side and not their atrocities, those whose hysterical fear of the conflict we face takes the form of pathological denial and projects the rabid hatred of the enemy for us onto our own commander in the war, are destined to have a lot to answer for before this conflict is over.

The American Left would like to see Iran wipe us out. That is frightening.

It's interesting that Mr Horowitz already has Israel losing the "war". I don't think I agree with him other that the part about a divided America.

What ever happens in Lebanon, both side will claim victory, but neither side will really win.

Israel is locked into a generational war of attrition, neither side has the means to win decisively.

There is only one place where this war is to be decided and that is Iraq.

If we can build a stable democratic relatively peaceful Iraq, then we will send a real message to the other two rogue states Syria and Iran.

At the moment they see us bogged down in Iraq, and if we cannot create a stable Iraq we are less inclined to go for a direct regime change in Syria and Iran, but if we do declare a victory there it will have the following benefits.

1) It is possible to directly enact regime change .

2)It will free up resources for the next stage.

And with the experience we have garnered we will not make as many of the same mistakes.

I would target Iran next, Syria will fall without Iran, and without Iran and Syria, the Palestinians Hezzballa and other terrorist organistions will have to come to the conclusion that the armed struggle is not going to last and they will have to find peaceful means with dealing with Israel

Unfortunately Horowitz is wrong. If we fail in Iraq and Israel fails in Lebanon the left will be able to claim victory. The sheeple won't take the time or devote the intellectual energy required to sort out the details. They will simply assume Bush and the conservatives were in charge and they failed.

The Jewish left in America is also responsible for the left having any say in American politics. Sad, really..

I hope I'm not giving away any secrets, but I see it a different way.

There will be war with Syria and Iran.

This operation is the first part of it, and it's objective is to secure Israels northern flank from infantry and Katusha attack from Lebanon.

Ultimately, an armed military UN backed buffer force will be inserted in South Lebanon. Any attacks on it will be seen as an attack on the UN. Hopefully, as many nationalities as possible will contribute. Those Nations will find it very difficult to withdraw their troops from a UN mandated mission. Hopefully Israel will be guaranteed security by the UN as part of it.

When this part is complete, the next stages will be the removal of Assad from the Syrian scene (by one means or another), and military action against Iran.

If we are to believe NPR and the other gleeful pollsters, Bush's effective presidency will end with the November election. Therfore he should take advantage of his time left to inflict maximum damage on our enemies before the cringing Democrats close the spigot.

They're only going to lose because it appears they are going to allow diplomatic pressure to cause them to stop. It's hard to square the notion that Israel has to fight this war because the Jewish State is in mortal danger with their statements that they will not launch a massive ground invasion.

I hate to say it. but it is starting to appear that Israel has soundly smacked the tar baby.

America is not divided enough for the American Left, which is now in full purge mode in Connecticut, where it is attempting to bring down the one statesman (Lieberman) in the Democratic Party who might re-unite this country in the face of its enemies.

Good grief. The leftist majority is so far left that people like Horowitz are bamboozled into thinking that a lib like Lieberman is a statesman.

You said: "If we can build a stable democratic relatively peaceful Iraq, "

Maybe we can build a stairway to the moon also.

We are dealing with Muslims here, not rational people.

Israel has the means to win decisively, more to the point is do they have the will to make it happen. The so-called world opinion is also something Israel considers when dealing with this. Look at the outcry over a few dead future terrorists and the progenitors of future terrorists.

I admire Horowitz very much, but I think he is wrong about Mookie's involvement in the battle of Fallujah. Mookie's thugs took over Najf and had to be extricated from the cemetery around the mosque. Fallujah was manned by Sunni extremists.

His general complaint that we should have done more about Mookie is good, but I think he is wrong on this point.
