“We would have found ourselves on the same side as Isis”
Hvis islam befinder sig i en trediveårskrig, som hævdet nedenfor, er det ikke uden medvirken fra tanketomme vestlige politikere, der hellere ville bombe før end de spurgte mere kyndige end dem selv til råds. Hvad angår forholdet til Rusland og Mellemøsten, har de gjort mere skade end gavn, fuldstændig passivitet fra deres side kunne ikke have medført et værre resultat. En nådesløs kommentar af Peter Hitchens These vainglorious fools will march us into another inferno
Have our leaders learned anything from this episode of folly, mass death and waste? [WW I] Absolutely not.They still reach for war at the slightest opportunity. Everyone knows now (I did at the time) that our Iraq adventure was stupid and wrong, and that we had no business in Afghanistan.
But I can well remember being told off sternly for not supporting David Cameron’s war in Libya, supposedly waged to prevent a fictional massacre and some fictional rapes. Only a few weeks ago I was still being told the same story. Well, Libya is now in flames, British Embassy staff are fleeing the country and the place is far too dangerous for anyone to go there and report on it. Massacres can proceed with impunity, and refugees head unhindered to Italy – and eventually here – in their thousands.
Let me remind you that Mr Cameron was quick to claim an easy triumph. He told the Commons on September 5, 2011: ‘Some people warned, as Gaddafi himself did, that the Libyan people could not be trusted with freedom; that without Gaddafi there would be chaos. Libya fuel depot ablaze as rival factions fight for control.‘What is emerging now, despite years of repression, and the trauma of recent months, is immensely impressive.’
‘If we had supported Cameron’s drive to overthrow Assad in Syria, we would have found ourselves on the same side as the Islamist fanatics of Isis, now murdering and mutilating their way across the Middle East’ Few (but happily, enough) spoke or wrote against Mr Cameron’s even madder scheme to overthrow the Assad government in Syria. If we had supported that, we would have found ourselves on the same side as the Islamist fanatics of Isis, now murdering, persecuting and mutilating their way across the Middle East to the terror of all.

Lighederne mellem Mehdi Nemouche og Mohamed Merah
Nemouche er blevet varetægtsfængslet en måned i Bruxelles og sigtet for “drab i en terrorrelateret kontekst”. Ifølge belgiske medier nægtede Nemmouche at sige noget under afhøringen, ifølge hans advokat fordi han var vred over, at hans forklaring til fransk politi for to måneder siden blev lækket til pressen.
