Skip to comments.THE SOVIET-ISLAM AXIS: NOTHING "JUST HAPPENS"
Posted on 07/22/2002 4:33:40 PM PDT by Ivan the Terrible
For weeks, we have been considering the question of whom we are fighting in the present "war on terror." Now we are ready to put the pieces together. Suppose you are the Soviet Politburo in Moscow, and your unwavering goal has always been the defeat and subjugation of the United States. You are perfectly aware that you cant just attack the United States directly. The risk would be too great.
So, if you are the world's supreme chess masters, what would you do? Both Sun Tsu, thousands of years ago, and Mao Tse-tung recently, taught that, when your enemy is strong, you should feign weakness. So, the first thing you would do is arrange the latest of many Soviet "collapses." As we saw last week, the present Soviet "collapse" is as phony as a one-dollar bill. The Soviet "collapse" will deflect attention from what you are really doing, and inspire your American enemy to disarm. The "collapse" will bring you sympathy, enormous financial aid and investment, along with diplomatic advances.
Next, you would use front men to implement your policy, so you could not be blamed for it. Over many years, investigators have nailed many individuals and groups who were doing exactly that for the Soviets. Some even pretended to be "fighting Communism." For instance, top State Department official Alger Hiss was secretly working for Soviet dictator Stalin when he founded the UN along with other Reds. The UN they created has always been run by Communists for Communist purposes.
By now, the Communist technique devised by Italian Red leader Antonio Gramsci (see my piece on the subject in the EtherZone archives) has so corrupted and debased American institutions that you are ready to launch a military assault on the United States. We have seen that the Soviets invented the Red Terror to enslave Russia. Now, they have made an alliance with belligerent Islam for the purpose.
But aren't the Soviets atheists? Yes, they are, or, rather, they are devotees of the religion of man, known in the West as Humanism. Why would militant Islam collaborate with them? It would collaborate because the unwavering goal of both is the defeat of the Great Satan, the United States. Islam would be the perfect tool for the Soviets because Islam has been a warrior system for almost 14 centuries, since Mohammed founded it in 632.
Today, many Americans don't know whom we fought in the War for Independence, or even whom we fought in World War II. Who has heard of Charles Martel, the "Hammer," who was the grandfather of Charlemagne? Yet, no one in history has done anything more decisive. Had Charles Martel failed at the battle of Tours in 732, militant Islam could have swept Western Europe. All of civilization would have changed. Today, there would be no United States. Notice that Islam was threatening to do all that a mere hundred years after Mohammed. Almost a millennium later, in 1683, Islam was still trying. The same speculations apply to don John Sobieski, of Austria, and his Polish hussars. Had they not repelled the Turks at the gates of Vienna, militant Islam possibly could have conquered all of Europe to the English Channel and beyond. Why should we believe that belligerent Islam has given up the goal of world conquest it has been fighting for since the day it was founded? Yes, jihad has ebbed and flowed over centuries, but it is always there. Read the Koran.
By using a religion as a cover, the Soviets gain sympathy. Look at Bush's fulsome campaign to absolve Islam of guilt, to the point at which the present pinhead in charge of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Incineration) actually met with and addressed the Islamic "charity" that has been nailed for financing the terrorists.
Indeed, the Soviets from the beginning have used front men who discreetly, and sometimes not so discreetly, work for Moscow rather than for the cause they pretend to represent. For instance, Nelson Mandela and most of the present black leaders of the Republic of South Africa, have always been Communists. So were Castro and his gang during all the years he was pretending to oppose them. So was Mao Tse-tung. As a deep cover member of the world government underground, you are no longer a Muslim, or a Christian, for that matter; you worship other gods.
In 1954, the Soviets began the siege of Algeria, a province of France, hoping to cripple that country. The leader of the rebellion was Ahmed Ben Bella, allegedly a Muslim, a Communist who ran a terror gang called the FLN (Federation of National Liberation). With the help of Moscow's man in Paris, Charles de Gaulle, Ben Bella succeeded in detaching Algeria from France, after a campaign of terror that endured for years, and included some of the most horrific bestialities ever committed. If you have the stomach for it, photographs are available in the Green Book, published by the French government.
Ben Bella is long gone. Unfortunately, Yassir Arafat is not. Arafat has always been a Soviet asset, trained, paid, supplied and directed. For half a century or thereabouts, he has taken orders from Moscow. What we face under his direction in the Middle East today is a typical Soviet war of "national liberation," as such operations used to be known.
Observe how the Soviet terror works. It kills not only the enemy but its own. The Islamic promise of a platoon of virgins to those who blow themselves up is the perfect tool for Soviet terror. Brainwashed Chinese committed suicide with American firepower in Korea, as did drugged North Vietnamese in the Nam. Indeed, a telltale tactic of all Soviet terror is the maiming and murder of the very people the terror claims to be advancing. Most of the victims by far of the Communist terror in South Africa were the blacks the Communists claimed to be liberating. There, the Communists used "necklacing," a burning tire around the neck. In Algeria, the victims of Ben Bellas mutilations were Muslims. As we have seen, Arafat's thugs are doing the same thing in the Middle East. The purpose of such Communist terror is to persuade the target population to shut up; to create the spurious impression that everyone supports the Communists.
Bombing buses and dismembering children has emerged as a principal terror tactic in Israel. Yes, it's gruesome, but it certainly isn't new. For instance, Castro and his Communist thugs routinely bombed buses in Havana, killing and dismembering women and children as in Israel today. Always, everywhere, it is the same. For an encyclopedic look at Red terror tactics in Algeria, Cuba, China, etc., see your Intrepid Correspondents book, It's Very Simple. All I ask you to do is what the detective does. Look at the m.o., the modus operandi. Whose footprints do you see?
In a recent piece you will find in the EZ archives, your obedient servant reminded you that the thugs who recently invaded the Church of the Nativity guzzled all the alcohol they found. But these are supposed to be Islamic fundamentalists, presumably more Muslim than Mohammed, and one Islamic fundamental prohibits drinking alcohol. Were the terrorists who invaded the Church of the Nativity not so much Muslims as they were something else?
They also trashed the church, which tradition says was the birthplace of Jesus. (Imagine the outcry were the Israelis to trash a mosque. George Bush would join the jihad.) But Jesus is a revered prophet in Islam. Again the question arises: What kind of Islamic "fundamentalists were these thugs?
Lets speculate on the basis of what we already know. The Soviets and the imams are working together. The Soviets are relatively new to the racket, but they have co-opted it and the jihad has acquiesced, because of the supplies, equipment, money and training it receives. Either partner alone would be a scourge; together they are a conflagration. At some point, the partners could fall out; right now, they are as tight as ticks in an armpit.
It is important to add that while expert Soviet propaganda has largely radicalized the Islamic population, especially the Palestinians, most people in the Muslim world even now would mind their own business if they were left alone. But, of course, that will not happen. The terrorists will continue to propel them toward Armageddon.
This brings us to American policy, which typically denies and ignores what is happening. Oklahoma City was the work of Tim McVeigh and his pal alone, we are told. Flight 800 "just blew up." The Soviet Union just "collapsed." And the man who killed those people at LAX "just happened" to be named Mohammed. The people he killed "just happened" to be Israelis. And he "just happened" to shoot up El-Al.
Needless to say, not a word of all this is mentioned by the government or its lapdog so-called news media, the rip-and-read experts at the networks, according to whom the Soviets are our staunch allies in the "war." Be with me next week in this space for some thoughts on what we must do.
DUMP DAVI$ & His Den of Socialists
File it among the other fairy tales of communist objective that'll never happen ... alongside the Euro economic and security collective and the abolishing of national sovereignty or the right to take unilateral action on one's own or another nation's behalf without an internatinoal coalition and a "Mother May I? Yes you may" from the UN's Security Council.
Notice the remarkable absence of people willing to die for Communism as it came apart. The minute it became obvious that it was going down, the stampede to join the other side was overwhelming. Only the careerists hung on to the end, and they quit as soon as they saw it would no longer advance their career
It's tough being a militant atheist but someone's gotta do it.
Piece of cake.
This story line would never pass even the Tom Clancy test of plausibility.
International flights between Moscow and Baghdad resumed just weeks before the Cole was bombed... Saved lots of time not having to ship the explosives over land.
I wonder what he meant by: "I felt guilty."
"In the course of his Nobel Peace Prize Lecture, delivered in Oslo in June 1992, Gorbachev said: 'Our [sic] vision of the European space from the Atlantic to the Urals in not that of a closed system. Since it includes the Soviet Union [sic], which reaches to the shores of the Pacific, it goes beyond nominal geographical boundaries'. Note that Gorbachev, who had been out of office for six months, referred to the Soviet Union, not Russia."
Another thing, that the cause of the Great Russia, neither East - nor West, Global Superpower, The Biggest Country in the World, Imperial Greatness, whatever name can be attached to such aspirations: they are well alive. Ambitions are definitely there. The old Communist and new Russian political chess players are most likely looking for the ways to the former, or better - new Greatness. They do see their interests as very different in many aspects then USA's. They continue to support Iran and Iraq, I don't believe the Russian spy agencies dissolved their connections with terrorists of different shades. Restructured - definitely, but dissolved - no way. With Chinese, astute political chess players too, they must be very careful as well. Overpopulated China would want nothing more than vast expanses of the sparsely populated Russia territories to the North of them. So, the Russia and China must dance very carefully with each other.
The Russian policy in the Middle East can't be described simply. You have to use "on one hand"/"on another hand" all the time. Russia would be a natural ally against Islam expansion. Even in the Soviet times, ethnic Russians looked down on the Muslim republics as on the younger and not too bright brother. But looks like despite the Chechen threat, they do officially support Arabs in the middle east. On another hand, the Moscow media and intelligentsia (that part which is not Anti-Semitic) are quite supportive of Israel ("all our people there"), versus Foreign Ministry, that traditionally is not.
I'd better have Russia as a friend.
