Michael Ledeen  feb 2008 082

Er der nogen, der begriber det større billede i Mellemøsten? Altså af dem, der overhovedet gider gå op i det længere? Michael Ledeen mener, at edderkoppen midt i spindet er Iran. Man skal holde godt fast under læsningen, det ER Mellemøsten. Den nye stærke mand “General Sisi, has some pretty impressive Islamist credentials…” og det er bare begyndelsen. (foto: Ledeen i København, februar 2008) – Ayaan Hirsi Ali – også American Enterprise Institute – skrev ligeledes i går en oversigtsartikel: So much for the Arab Spring.)

It’s hard to get our minds around the dimensions of the slaughter underway in the Middle East and Africa, and harder still to see that the battlefields of Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Nigeria and Mali are pieces in a global war in which we are targeted…… So there’s a global war, we’re the main target of the aggressors, and our leaders don’t see it and therefore have no idea how to win it.

Any serious attempt to understand what’s going on has to begin by banning the word “stability,” much beloved of diplomats and self-proclaimed strategists. If anything is fairly certain about our world, it’s that there is no stability, and there isn’t going to be any. Right now, the driving forces are those aimed at destroying the old order, and their targets (the old regimes, very much including the United States) have until recently showed little taste to engage as if their survival depended on it. But things are changing, as always.

The war is easily described: there is a global alliance of radical leftists and radical Islamists, supported by a group of countries that includes Russia, at least some Chinese leaders, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua. The radicals include the Sunni and Shi’ite terrorist organizations and leftist groups, and they all work seamlessly with the narcotics mafias. Their objective is the destruction of the West, above all, of the United States.[..]

Let’s get outside these little boxes and look at the big board. There’s an alliance plotting against us, bound together by two radical views of the world that share a profound, fundamental hatred of us. If they win, it’s hell to pay, because then we will be attacked directly and often, and we will be faced with only two options, winning or losing. It’s War, You Idiots, Michael Ledeen

Why Was Enoch Powell a Racist and Not Charles de Gaulle?

The French and British empires historically had different premises, with the former (in the Roman tradition) focused more on culture and the latter more on race, hierarchy, and family. This difference took many forms: one finds meals of bifteck-frites in tiny towns in the former French colony of Niger but little English food even in the cities of neighboring Nigeria. Léopold Senghor of Senegal became a significant French poet and cultural figure whereas Rabindranath Tagore of Bengal could never transcend his Indian origins.

Charles de Gaulle was Time magazine’s man of the year in 1959, the year he delivered his anti-Arab remarks. Likewise, French and British politicians responded to the initial post-World War II immigration of non-Western peoples to their countries in characteristically different ways. Charles de Gaulle, arguably the most important leader of France since Napoleon, focused on culture while Enoch Powell, a rising star in the United Kingdom, emphasized race. Here are their speeches on the topic, starting with de Gaulle (1890-1970), who spoke on March 5, 1959: [..]

(1) These two statements have much wider support today than when they were delivered, 54 and 45 years ago, respectively. (2) At the same time, no major politician today would dare speak as directly as these two did back then. (3) Islam, today’s emphasis, is nowhere even hinted at. De Gaulle spoke of “turbans and jellabiyas,” not Shari’a and honor killings. Powell referred to “marked physical differences, especially of colour,” not Islamic supremacism or female genital mutilation. Daniel Pipes.

Så – det här kriget i Mellanöstern är ungefär inne på sitt tvåtusende år. Det har egentligen inte varit något större lugn i området sedan Pax Romana, när Romarriket löste problemet temporärt genom att ehlt enkelt skövla av fanskapet och antingen slog ihjäl invånarna eller sålde dem som slavar, och jämnade Jerusalem med marken sådär 70 e.Kr. Nu är jag väl egentligen inte någon större anhängare av den sortens taktik, även om den visade sig historiskt vara åtminstonde pacificerande. Jag är emellertid hjärtligt trött på att ständigt och jämt höra på rapporteringen från Mellanöstern, dag ut och dag in, i… Read more »

Med tanke på sitt publikum tilhørte disse to mennene i praksis to forskjellige generasjoner. De Gaulle holdt sin tale i 1959 – dvs før generasjonen som ble født etter (og tildels også rett før og under) den andre verdenskrigen begynte å utgjøre noen reell politisk kraft hverken som velgere eller politikere. Disse siste – “etterkrigsgenersasjonen”, “sekstiåtterne”- kan med fordel nettopp beskrives med nettopp det uttrykket som De Gaulle brukte i sin tale om tilhengere av “integrering”: “Ceux qui prônent l’intégration ont une cervelle de colibri.” Direkte oversatt betyr det altså “kolibrihjerner”. Et passende uttrykk på norsk – og vel kanskje… Read more »

De Gaulle: ” Qu’est-ce que les Arabes ? Les Arabes sont un peuple qui, depuis les jours de Mahomet, n’ont jamais réussi à constituer un Etat… Avez-vous vu une digue construite par les Arabes ? Nulle part. Cela n’existe pas. Les Arabes disent qu’ils ont inventé l’algèbre et construit d’énormes mosquées. Mais ce fut entièrement l’oeuvre des esclaves chrétiens qu’ils avaient capturés… Ce ne furent pas les Arabes eux-mêmes… Ils ne peuvent rien faire seuls.”
( Cité par Cyrus Sulzberger, Les derniers des géants, Ed. Albin Michel, 1972 )

Slike harde tider varsler allerede sin retur. Så hvis vi ikke greier å overbevise våre skandinaver med fornuftige argumenter og Steens nyhetsartikler, da vil likevel den multikulturelle optimisme bli avløst av en helt annerledes livsstemning, en realisme som ligner på våre fedres, de Gaulles og Powells realisme. Ganske enkelt fordi det multikulturelle samfunn har innebygd sin egen oppløsning og fall, akkkurat som kommunismen. Skandinavene vil reise seg av sin slummer. De argumenter, den type logikk og livsstemning som i dag puttes i sekken for “høyreekstremisme” er morgendagens konsensus. Det vi i dag hvisker i krokene, vil i morgen ropes fra… Read more »

Du er inde på noget jeg selv tror er rigtigt, nemlig at folk der hele livet har levet trygt og sikkert, får et forskruet forhold til virkeligheden og tror at de trygge rammer som deres forældre har slidt og slæbt, og ofte kæmpet og faldet jvf. krigen, for, er “tingenes naturlige tilstand”. Det ville betyde at vi har naive fjolser uden reel livserfaring til at styre Danmarks, og Norges, affærer. Umiddelbart lyder teori til at passe fuldstændigt med observeret virkelighed….
