Islamic pilfering of Nations

Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

Submitted by Dvora (United States), Sep 20, 2005 at 14:42

This is a wonderful article, Dr. Pipes, and I commend you for your address of President Musharaff of Pakistan. I greatly admire him, and agree with most of what he said, as it is Historically accurate. I commend him also, for being a motivated speaker, as well as a mensch to his Constituents, and to Israel as well. Specifically, to Jews, and addressing them as human beings.

I must state this, as it applies to my research, Islamist Leaders, of Muslim Nations who speak ill of America and Jews, because it is apart of an overall problem.

Racist rhetoric should never be tolerated in any Society, but it is an everyday occurance in Islamist Nations. An Islamist Nation is different from a muslim Nation in that it's leaders bleed dry the National Economy thru fraud, deception, and all out theft, then blame a race of people who are not permitted to live, work, worship in their Nations. Racist rhetoric is also a sign of an affected personality, and the moment any leader uses it, he/she should be led off the podium, and arrested. Some are so virulently hateful, I wouldn't mind seeing someone in Authority detain them, and keep them indefinitely, in jail.

Unfortunately, King Abdullah 11 is actually no different, since he, too, through graft, corruption, and over spending, is draining his Nation dry as well, though he pays great lip service to Americans, his people are suffering, double digit unemployment, and inability to work and keep their families while he Jets all over the World, and I simply had to grin, when I heard that a Palestinian Banker said that if she wants to know what King Abdullah is thinking, she can turn on Larry King Live. In the interim, King Abdullah cannot give away his Government owned entities, nor can he attract Foreign Investment, because his Authorities which he placed in Power over Jordanians, insist on being paid elaborate fees, which they instate overnight, to penalize Foreign Investors before they even do business. The result is the Foreign Investors walk, and the subjects of the Nation lose employment. Which means more time in Mosques, more disallusionment amongst the Arab Populace, and an opportunity to have Islamists create a sea of hatred to place the blame on innocent Nations and people.

One thing common to all Arab Leaders, who bleed their Government dry, thus depriving their people and their Nations, is corruption. Along with the corruption, there is always racist rhetoric, blatant refusal to admit they have robbed the Nation and their Constituents while in Office, then a deliberate attempt to place the blame for the suffering of their people, directly on Government Policies or the hidden hand, of America and Israel. Once this step is complete, they then incite hatred for the two Nations who are doing well, as are their Societies, and insist the Americans and Jews must die for simply having a good economy, which they COULD have, by opening their door to trade and Foreign Investment, but which they can get no takers because the cost of graff, and Government instability, as well as outright extortion to do business in the Middle East cannot attract Foreign Investment. Therefore their people suffer.

We saw an American version of that in Louisiana, known for decades for their corruption. Which no Federal, State or local Government cared to address for decades, and which led to massive loss of life when hurricane Katrina hit.

When a Government becomes corrupt, it no longer works. It wasn't racism in Louisiana, but the decadent corruption, refusal to do their jobs, people placed in positions of power without merit, a draining of the financial system, and a refusal to repair existing structures, which leaders stole from Treasuries, making Laws to make it legal to do so, and letting the town of Louisiana, it's levee's rot, and the public safety of the populace was virtually non-existent.

Their corruption is now a testament for all of America and the World to see. We can no longer hide our heads and say it is not going on here, because it is. Louisiana is not the only State, and I see this as a National and International problem.

I will go one step further. Corruption of this magnitude, is present, usually, when an affected personality is in charge, and to get corruption to this great of an extent, it is generally more than one affected person, with no conscience, no remorse and no accountability.

I remain firm on my life thesis, and that is that all people of all Nations deserve and should have sound Leadership. When they do not have it, their Governments no longer work. Before a Candidate can run for Office, I see no relevance to their Bank Accounts, or Investments insuring them to be of sound mind. Merit, not money, should be the proving ground for any candidate, and if it is later found they have a criminal/predatorial History, then they should be excluded from ever holding Office again.

When something becomes corrupt it no longer works. It is not acceptable that a local Official, who refuses to do his job, is promoted to a State position, where the Official continues to refuse to do their job, and then, are promoted to a Federal position, where they refuse to do their jobs on a grand scale where it affects entire States, and not just local citizens.

There is a relevant connection between the affected personality, (criminal mind) racist rhetoric, inability or blatant refusal to accept responsibility for criminal malfeasance, and a Government left ineffective from fraud and corruption.

This kind of Government will falter and eventually fail completely. As will their citizens.

We agree, directly or indirectly, to be ruled by a Government because they protect our property rights, and agree to assist us in obtaining Law and Order, as well as Financial benefits from a stable Market, viable employment, and equitable treatment. Clearly, in America, this is not happening, but the conditions are far worse in Islamist Nations where Despots rule their entire lives, and cannot be removed from Office, except for assassinations, and even then, another despot is ready to take their position thru murder and mayhem. This is a fear Society, where no one can speak against it, because the rulers have absolute rule and will not tolerate dissention of any type, or kind, from their Constituents.
