Calling the enemy by its real name

Reader comment on item: Not Calling Islamism the Enemy

Submitted by Ed Gordon (Israel), Apr 16, 2006 at 03:54

From the outset of the War Against Terror, President Bush has been in a quandary regarding Islam and Islamic countries. This is mainly due to oil producing countries, particularly Saudi Arabia and Quiwait, who still supply a sizeable amount of oil to the U.S. Islamic militants in Iraq have prevented the U.S. from having control on that country's oil reserves, which was one of the reasons for the 2003 invasion and overthrow of Saddam Hussein and his Baath Party regime.

Now, another even more radical Islamic country, Iran, is very much in the picture, with the U.S. once again weighing options concerning making an attack on that country to prevent it from producing nuclear weapons. Iran, with at least 10% of proven world petroleum reserves, may try to use it's "oil weapon" to disrupt world oil supplies if the U.N. imposes harsh economic sanctions.

Many people have voiced their opinions that Islam, being a dominant and uncompromising religion, is causing a lot of the world's present problems - besides global warming, of course. The U.S. Administration, trying to walk both roads regarding Islamic radicalism, is trying to appease the Saudis, Quwaitis, U.A.E., etc., while not coming to terms with a religion that has one clear goal in mind; that is: to become the dominant world religion by the end of the 21st Century. No gloss-over or complacency will cover up this fact.

The U.S. may soon pull most of its forces from Iraq, and Iran may decide to tone down its nuclear plans. But the "bottom line" is still there: i.e. Global Islam and the religion's ultimate world domination plans.

This reality is behind the recent furor caused by the Danish cartoon controversy, among other incidents world wide.
