WESTERN countries are fighting World War III and it would last a generation, former head of Israel's Mossad spy network, Efraim Halevy, said in Melbourne yesterday.
Mr Halevy, who ran Israel's intelligence agency between 1998 and 2002, said a major terror attack was possible in Australia.
But he said the public didn't appear to realise the seriousness of the threat.
"The threats today are aimed at destroying the whole way of life in democratic societies . . . of turning back the wheel more than 1000 years," Mr Halevy said.
The security adviser to former prime minister Ariel Sharon and now head of strategic studies at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said Islamic militancy was squarely aimed at establishing an international caliphate.
"The goals here are global. The goals here are absolute," Mr Halevy said.
"This is a modern-type third world war . . . (but) it's very difficult to convince the public there is a war at all."
Mr Halevy said the three major threats the world faced were weapons of mass destruction, Islamic terrorism and risk of rocketing oil and energy prices, and said all those threats emanated from the Middle East.
"If the world is threatened by the Middle East there is no option but for the world to come to the Middle East," he said.

War sucks. But if your going to fight for your believes you must fight it as a war!
It is indeed WWIII and Europe has already lost to islam because of their economic dependence on muslim immigrants. The entire Western world is infected with the bacteria of islamofacism and the ignorant dupes are focused on who in Hollywood is screwing whom, and consumed with modern "rights" like homosexual marriage and fairness for captured terrorists. The West has taken its collective eye off the ball, and we are losing the war against islam precisely because we are winning the so-called "war on terror". Those of you with insight will know what I mean.
OK, but it's World War IV.
If we fought all-out, we'd win quickly.
The US has 1000 times the fighting potential of all the countries in the Middle East put together.
This war will last until they fear us more than they despise us.
They want our blood. So, let's take theirs first.
Am I the only one that thinks this action, while perhaps "imprudent", would save lives in the big picture?
I don't know what it is, but I always feel like I'm missing a piece of the picture. It seems like there is a "right" thing to do.
The PC mindset is what will end our civilization. We need to remember that the right thing might always be the "nice" thing. As badly as I'd love for everyone to be at peace, that's not possible when "the other guy's" idea of a good time is slitting my throat.
Reminds me of that scene out of Indiana Jones. Here is this masked villian slashing his sword around ready for action and, there, right on our hip, is a pistol. My dad always reminded me of the old axiom, "Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.".
So, what exactly are we waiting for? Hmmm?
Or as someone here argued, World War 0, started around 622 AD.
"It's war already, says spy"
THANKS for the pings.
"In war, there is no substitute for Victory"....MacArthur
"Ok, who lit one!
If these Eastern Putzes pull of a few more biggies, the rest of the world will turn them into a glass factory.
"If the world is threatened by the Middle East there is no option but for the world to come to the Middle East."
An unequvocal affirmation of the Bush Doctrine of Preemption, aka we're coming over to your backyard to kick your ass, so that you can't come near ours.
Solid common sense, that any flyover territory, gun-toting, bible-thumpin', homophobic white Christian hillbilly can understand fully by the time he is 10 years old.
Thanks for the ping. It's definitely war and I hope not too many more Americans are going to die before the spineless Dems realize it.
A herd of degenerates. LOL.
Kinda like the Dems!
DAMN I think we are WW3 right now or beginning of 21th century war conflict that probably would take 10 or 30 years to win
LOL, you mean one 'moonie' to the next!!
that pic is insane! what/where/how/why?
My sentiments exactly. TOTAL PACIFICATION of the enemy, as in WWII, is the ONLY way fight a WAR. That means breaking everything they have and killing everyone who doesn't unconditionally surrender!!!
I found it on the forum a couple of years ago. Looks like some cult gathering. Just named 'sheeple'.
Seems some have forgotten the almost 100,000 US KIA we lost in WW III (It wasn't cold.)
I dont think there are armories there. How about we make a quick grab of Mecca and make them come to it to free it of infidels.
Disagree. This is less like WWI/WWII (one war that) and much more like our Indian Wars in the US. We need more Andy Jacksons and Wm Shermans.
Just nuke Mecca... that would be my first act within minutes of taking the oath of office if I were elected president...
Animate that one
One wants to say "D'uh" after Homer Simpson, except that the majority here in the U.S. is busy shopping, and the leaders are busy hosting Ramadan dinners at the White House. Mark Helprin said pretty much the same thing right after 9/11. others too, and what? If we wish hard enough Dorothy, it'll all go away, won't it...
The liberals won't realize the danger until its too late. Even the cowardly fools won't be able to muster the will to fight. Damn them to hell!
I'm not going to write lol to that, it's too darned funny! Where shall I start??
The West has taken its collective eye off the ball, and we are losing the war against islam
The liberals do not see this as a war at all IMHO. They see it as a necessary step towards a world government in which we all 'participate'. As another poster said, their fascination with Islam is key to the fact that, when the Dems take over the W.H. and Congress, they will hand the U.S. over like a plate of appetizers.
Unfortunately I think is going to take a major terrorist attack on the US in which many thousands af people die and American muslims are shown on the six o'clock bad news dancing in the streets in celebration.
We will be lucky if the muslims do cause a major terrorist attack in the US to make people wake up.
If this doesn't happen, then we will probably slowly boil until we're all muslims.
Thanks for the ping!
Thanks for the ping. War it is.
Maybe they should be introduced to the comparative birth rates....
I don't mean to go on and on but didn't anyone see this coming. The only shot we have is to STOP THEM, IN THEIR TRACKS. Go there like we did to Japan in WWII, We had to do it twice but then IT WAS DONE. The whole world has lost respect for the us. We either have to get INTO THIS DOG FIGHT or go to the tailor and get fitted for robes. A berqua for us gals. (sorry, I guess I'd best learn to spell it before I order it) I'll die fighting before I wear one of those things. Thanks for letting me rant, you guys are awesome. May God bless us all!!
I couldn't have said it better sassyb. I fought my war and now I'm pushing sixty and partially disabled but I'll be damned if I'll bow down to Mecca. Unfortunately, judging by the last few elections, about half of US would rather switch than fight. Possibly they think it won't come to that. I think they are just too decadent to care and don't want to be bothered with reality. Sadly, it's a toss-up who will decide our fate.
Sorry I didn't get back to you immediately, but better late than never, right?! Thanks for your service of this Country and for MY freedom. I know, by your age, what war you fought. (Please note I said WAR not police action). My brother fought there too. You men did not get the acknowledgement you so desperately deserved, that was an American sin. So I say to you Chuck. Thank you, and May God bless you and all your loved ones. We are forever in your debt!!!!!!!
Is that a fat farm?
