Reader comment on item: A Call for American Boldness in Iran
in response to reader comment: Israel and Iran are separate cases

Submitted by Don (Peru), Jun 27, 2009 at 07:17

Disagree with you on the "Israel is a separate issue" comment. Ah'jad has made it an issue for the whole the world to seriously consider. But my main point is that we are no longer strong leaders. When other leaders and peoples look to us now, they don't rerspect ouir our standing. I travel a lot in my line of work and keep a good pulse on policitcs.

Bush was respected by the Islamic world and feared by our enemies. To me, that's exactly thye way I want it. I don't care that they like us or not when their media propogandize against us and Israel with the worst lies and their Imams and religious leaders are stirring up hatred with lies and ideology that is at odds with our morals and values. They don't like us? Yea...they haven't since the Muslim Brotherhood started spreading its ideology through the world beginning about eeight decades ago, or back to the Barbary pirates in Jefferson's day. They hate our culture (porn, casual sex, women's rights, abortions on demand, affairs in marriage celebrated ion our movies, hardcore rap, everything-goes sexual mores, and all our values infiltrating their own societies through mediums and internet that their youth is gobbling up.

Listen to Osama bin Laden on that; it is the reason al-Queda is at war with America and the reason he calls for jihad agfainst America.) I've traveled and worked in Kuwait, Egypt, Dubai, Bahrain, and even Islamabad. Islamists respect people like Bush. They laugh at people like Obama and thank Allah for his coming.
