Afghanistan at Home


Pages: 1 2

How many deals did we cut with the Sunni insurgents who butchered Americans, how many briefcases full of money did we pass into the Sunni Triangle and to the moderate Taliban? How much money have we spent absorbing Somali, Iraqi and Pakistani immigrants? How much aid have they picked up? How much time have we spent servicing the ambitions of Iraqi and Afghan officials who were running terrorist networks aimed at us? How many CAIR officials have gotten entry into the White House and how many Muslim advisers do Europe’s leaders really need?

Those aren’t pretty questions, but while there are and will be countless books dedicated to exactly how we screwed up Iraq and Afghanistan, every dubious deal, every questionable arrangement, everyone that we should not have trusted and empowered, it is unlikely that similar histories will be written on how we lost London or Minneapolis. By then there will doubtfully be any historians left to write those histories, except the ones writing the history of the great conquest.

Whether we let the Taliban take over or the Muslim Brotherhood take over, it’s much the same thing. There or here, our leaders allowed themselves to be sold a bill of goods wrapped in Burka and then made expedient concession after concession until nothing was left but to let the victors have their spoils. Each step in the process seemed eminently reasonable, a compromise that did not go too far, and always aimed for the moderate point on the compass. Like Zeno’s Dichotomy Paradox, they imagined that they could keep meeting the other side halfway without ever crossing the line. What they did not understand was that the imaginary line they would not cross kept moving with them.

The worse the situation became, the more justifications they dug up, and them more they lashed out at their critics. Each failure was really a success and to make that failure into a success, they had to compromise more of what they had set out to achieve, until the village and the city had been destroyed to save it. Until Baghdad became London, Gaza became Jerusalem, and Afghanistan was everywhere.

It is not Afghanistan or Pakistan that are being integrated into Europe and America, rather Europe and America are being integrated into Afghanistan and Pakistan. Muslim norms of behavior and thought are being imposed on the vulnerable minds of the West. The Clash of Civilizations has made far more Westerners doubt their way of life, than it has made Muslims doubt theirs. Despite several invasions, Muslims have held on to their territory, while Westerners are swiftly losing theirs, not just a few outlying territories, but their core cities which are being settled, transformed into Little Mogadishus and Londonistans.

What’s the thought of losing Afghanistan compared to losing London? A withdrawal from the East End won’t be nearly as tidy as from Kandahar and there is in the long run nowhere to withdraw to. Afghanistan is everywhere, it is in every hodgepodge of angry ghettos, manufacturing towns ripe with Kebab joints and mosques where the faithful curse the infidels and university graduates with oily smirks rub their bellies while they dub themselves lords, mayors and councilmen. The time when we might have won Afghanistan is past, and the time when we might win in London and New York is swiftly passing.

    What a brilliant article! Thank you Mr. Greenfield. You are so correct writing:

    "The Clash of Civilizations has made far more Westerners doubt their way of life, than it has made Muslims doubt theirs."

    Just a decade ago even crazy lefts would not dare to doubt that America is an exclusively Judeo-Christian nation, which is our national identity. Nowadays both left-wing and some right-wing openly negate our Judeo-Christian heritage!

    The only salvation of the Western civilization is to rise in a fury and to rid of every last mo-o-o-oslem which gets in sight. Every stone, every fiber of our soul must shout: There are moslems hiding behind, rid of them! Send them back to their crapistans! And first of all rid of the islamic usurper in the White House…

    The only question is whether here remain any folks in our fallen nation up to the Herculean task of cleaning these Augean Stables…

      This is a wonderful article. But the change occurred in the 1960s, not 9/11. Political Correctness, or more properly Cultural Marxism, was designed to destroy Western Civilization. http://www.academia.org/the-origins-of-political-
      Cultural Marxism/PC usurped Liberalism. Liberalism has become Civilizational AIDS. It subverts education, the media, high culture, and women- the propagators and defenders of civilization- leaving not a utopia, but a dying self-hating wreck to be infected, colonized, invaded and replaced. Islam is the increasingly virulent parasitic infection. http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2006/06/politic

      The Clash of Civilizations did not make us doubt our civilization. This was already here. (Remember the leftist assault on Columbus in 1992?) 9/11/2001 should have been a wake up call. Instead it accelerated the process as the Grover Norquist-infected liberal Bush administration embrased CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. For the left, Muslims and even Islamists became the oppressed to be protected and given licence to do anything. Neoconservatives with their delusions of democracy inevitably coddled Muslims and the Muslim Brotherhood, since we could not offend those we wished to empower.

        The situation you describe and the Obama regime is why so many White American citizens are loading up on weapons, ammo and survival stuffs. Shortyl, our own damned government is going to become our worst enemy. The TV program JERICHO is similar to what I see coming followed shortly by Road Warrior days. Weapons and ammo are your friends, get them while it is still possible to do so.

        Excellent links to two excellent articles–thank you!
        —-Bill Whittle's online show, "Afterburner" (all are good) on Pajamas Media TV (PJTV), also has a great 13-minute video about PC/Cultural Marxism that was started in America by the dishonorable Frankfort School.

        —When David Horowtz filled in as guest host on a radio talk show (Rush's?) several years ago, a caller asked how could he tell if a leader of any political group was honourable or not. David unhesitatingly replied: if they are promoting the false promise of utopia–of heaven on earth—DUMP THEM! How true.

    • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

      Bulan Sabrie, you are absolutely correct. The so called "political correctness" is a part of Commies' agenda revealed by Skousen already in 1960. However the rot originated even earlier… I made a comparative analysis explaining it:

      http://www.resonoelusono.com/2008vs1917.htm

      Yet it is not just the Liberalism – the Civilizational AIDS, which made us an easy prey for islam. The main factor which empowered islam and brought it fore in the 20-21 centuries is trillions of oil money:

  • truebearing

    If truth is a bitter thing to swallow, then Mr. Greenfield's piece is a flagon of bile. It's all true and there seems to be an inexorable momentum to our inevitable submission to very dark forces. Political correctness has paralyzed the minds of Europeans and Americans to the point that fear of acceptance is greater than our native survival instincts. Truly free minds would conclude that there is no other choice but to free our culture of Islam, and the Left that enables it, and then free Europe. It is a big world, and we need to accept that this will be a big fight….. or we can meekly submit and become enthralled by evil.

  • Danny

    Maybe Greenfield, Gofen and truebearing should lead the way for all of us, take a break from their typing exercises, put their money where their big pie-holes are, and start violently dispatching, to quote Gofen, "every last m-o-o-oslem which gets in sight" in our cities and towns. Then the rest of us can watch as they're paraded in front of the TV cameras in orange jumpsuits and plastic handcuffs after they're caught, just like the neo-Nazi in Norway.

    Somehow I don't think they're up to it.

    • diann

        It's easy for Danny. He isn't restrained by rationality.

    • truebearing

      Mr. Greenfield is leading. I guess you have a childish, one-dimensional concept of leadership which is limited to arming oneself and heading out for battle. According to your way of thinking, the forces opposed to slavery should have started a war before they tried to reason with slave owners. Why am I not surprised?

      You should consider what kind of follower you are, since obviously you're no leader. What leader would want you as a follower? You have no courage.

  • SRWakankar

    We often mistake Islam for Arab Islam which it is not. The Real Islam is the non-Arab Islam (ie Hindu) great tradition of non-Arab(ie again Hindu) Asia which pre-dates Arab 's Mohammedan Islam which is "for the Arab,by the Arab, of the Arab" only and beyond it, it is sheer IMPERIALISM. Arab Islam's real frame or CANVAS is Arabia only, pl don't stretch it any further.

      NONSENSE! there is only islam and islam is sharia. It is also the very dark side of humanity.

    • Whatsinaname

      What would you call Pakistan, then? Ask any former Muslim: there is only one Islam.

  • Dispozadaburka

    New World Order needs a New World Religion funded by Saudi Arabia.

    The Muslim Day of Prayer in DC, lead by Barack Husseim Obama." where 50,000 muslim men prayed for "The Soul of America." Sept 2009) Was actually a Freemasonic rite of "surrender" to Islam.
    Barack is the name of Mohammeds White Horse, Hussein the name of the 3rd and 12th Imam who will bring in the Mahdi and O-ba-ma in Persian, means "He is with us."

    The goal of attaining or conquering, Jerusalem (before or during the galactic alignment) (Mayan calendar) Dec. 21, 2012 is the goal.
    If we move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem we have, in effect, have captured Jerusalem for Islam.

    • Whatsinaname

      Moving our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is merely acknowledging that the capital of Israel is Jerusalem, not Tel Aviv. It's about time we did that. And it's also about time we stated on the birth certificates of Americans born in Jerusalem that they were born in Jerusalem, Israel. The U.S. State Dept. has to enter the 20th and then the 21st centuries.

    "The war has already come home and the only real tactic on tap is cultural sensitivity. Display enough of it and you’ll win over the locals and if you win over the locals, they’ll help you stop the violence. And along the way the eyes of the law have to be closed to some of their nastier habits, like beating their wives and killing their daughters. If they turn violent when a Koran is burned, then everything possible has to be done to prevent anyone from ever torching one or drawing an offensive cartoon or doing anything else to light the fuse."

    Are you kidding me, Greenfield? There is so much wrong with this article that I don't even know where to begin.

    • zemplar

      hey mike, keep your head stuck in the ground, it clearly suits you. that way you won't see what's going on, and – here's the real kicker – you won't have to do anything about it, because it 'won't be happening'

  • Ronald Johnston

    Why do we let such a small per centage of people have such liberties? It is the same with our federal politicians! Why do we have so many guns? To stop such evil and remain free!!!!

    • trickyblain

      Don't get me wrong, I'm a gun owner and support the right to have one. But if the gov't really wanted to take your guns away they would. A .45 ACP won't do much good if you're being rolled by an M1-A1 main battle tank.

      • KarshiKhanabad

        I'm a former tanker. An armored vehicle has as many vulnerabilities as it does offensive capabilities and can survive and win battles only when combined with infantry, artillery, close air support, and other conventional systems.

        Sooner or later a tank has to be refueled, rearmed, and maintained. It cannot sustain itself in motion indefinitely. Its crew members must be fed & periodically rested. Surviving inside a buttoned-up tank for days on end is hell for those who have done it. Yes, a tank & its crew are invulnerable to small arms fire, but only under a specified set of conditions. If tanks were actually deployed against an insurrection of the citizenry, a thousand websites would pop up instantly with the heading "How to defeat a tank with simple techniques & materials you can find in your own home.".

        I too own a .45 automatic, the same type weapon I carried as a tanker. Look up "Can one handgun defeat an army?" for some ideas.

      Why did the DHS order 450 million rounds of ammo for guns that are only used for killing people that belong to an acronym that has only domestic duties!!!! I posit, they are in fact for killing people, AMERICAN CITIZEN PEOPLE!

    The self proclaimed right to police the world has some minor drawbacks.

    My subject is Islam, not Arab Islam.
    Islam is like a train, nobody knows from where it is coming; the Arabs boarded it in the 7th century, they don't know the earlier "stations".For them, they don't exist.This is the reason for their typical worldview.For them, world begins with Mohammed and his preachings.Before it, everything is dark."Light" came in 7th century only.This is Arab Islam.
    But the great ancient tradition of non-Arab(ie Hindu) Islam of non-Arab(Hindu) Asia is far older than this and no less in any sense.It starts with the Holy Vedas and its language is Sanskrit-the ancient classical language of the East,not Arabic.This is Hindu Islam, ie my Islam.AfPak is its land of birth, but due to Medieval anti-Indian Arab/Muslim Imperialism, this whole area became converted to Arab Islam and Hindu Islam disappeared totally from this region.Pakistan is a fallout of this legacy, it is a product of terrorism and violence against Hindus.All people in this area are 'rebel Hindus, they are ferociously anti-Hindu,because they are ex-Hindu.Hindu is the word for "resistance" against Medieval Arab/Muslim Imperialism". Hindu India fiercely resisted Islamic invasions and survived the attacks and bloodshed in spite of tyrannical Muslim rule which lasted for centuries.Hindu India's story is a saga of wonder where in spite of total military/political collapse, a nation and a people survived.Today, whole world is fighting this eternal Hindu War which has been termed as War on Terror.Hindu India is fighting this war for last 1500 years.There is nothing NEW for Hindus in this.They have great experience of this for centuries.
    Why India did not become Muslim?
    Because Hindus have already been on the path of Islam (in Hinduism called DHARMA), they were and are,Muslim since quite long before the Arabs became Muslim. Hindu Islam which precedes and pre-dates Arab Islam is the "Real Islam".It is tolerant, non-violent non-Jihadi, non-hating, democratic,non-supremacist, and most of all not anti-West at all. It exists with the West and its values with perfect harmony and peace.Hindu Islam has no civilizational clash with the West or anybody. That is why it is the Real and most Authentic One.Arab Islam is "for the Arab, by the Arab, of the Arab".

    • Choi

      WHAT in the H are you talking about,"Hindu Islam"?
      Hindu is the Indian Sub-Continent's largest religion.
      It has it's unique theology and holidays.
      Islamic CONQUERORS,The Mughals, forced millions of Hindus into CONVERTING(by the sword) and set up their own Indian(including today's Pakistan and Bengledesh)ISLAMIC ":Caliphate,"the Mughal Empire".
      Western parts of India ,such as Hyderbad and present-day Pakistan ,were heavily Islamic and in 1947 the British gave up its Indian Empire and Partitioned Colonial India into India and Pakistan,with those Muslims desiring to live in a Muslim MAJORITY country ,relocated to Pakistan.
      Millions of Muslims remained in the New India and to this day cause VIOLENCE.
      By the way,most Pakistanis with the last name of Sheikh are descended from FORCED CONVERTS to Islam.

  • RonCarnine

    One of the problems (and its a big one) with integration of Muslim immigrants into the US is that they cannot and do not have the ability to "protect and defend" as well as obey, the Constitution of the United States. George Washington wrote a letter to a Hebrew Congregation at the end of the Revolutionary War commending them as "good citizens". A good citizen according to Washington, was a citizen who obeys and supports the Constitution and who allows others to practice their religion w/o interference or persecution. Since Muslims can't do this, they never can be considered good citizens and should not be allowed to immigrate into this country. Sharia Law is not at all compatible with the laws and Constitution of this nation. Another problem we have is the belief that if we pour enough money into the Muslim community is that they will be peaceful. But that has already been tried and it failed. Turn back the pages of history to the presidential administration of Thomas Jefferson. Our country had been paying the Barbary Coast to leave our shipping alone. When the so called Barbary Pirates (should be spelled Muslim) took a military ship and help over 300 men prisoner and demanded ransom to release them, Jefferson said enough. Military force was used and the men were released. Jefferson's example shows us the only option that is successful and that is military force. So, no more Muslim immigration and no more large payments. It is the only thing that will work.

    Immigration is created by the left to destroy Western cultures and create a subservient society without
    personal dignity, National pride and clear lines of identity, in short social engineering with total change
    destroying today while eradicating the past for a utopian future of total control……….Mass deportation
    is the only answer to this problem, the price of doing nothing, complete chaos and a very bloody
    future……………………………………….William
