West is losing War against Islamic Terrorism

Reader comment on item: NATO Fights the Jihadis

Submitted by Canha (India), Oct 11, 2006 at 14:20

1. In Lebanon, Hizbollah is still in power, its military capability is intact and it continues to enjoy the support of the Lebanese people as well as of Syria and Iran.

2. In Iraq, the Coalition has absolutely no chance of winning. The former Secretary of State, James Baker is currently heading the Iraq Study Group (a White House-backed commission) that is considering devolution of power from Baghdad to three Iraqi regions, Sunni, Shia and Kurdish. If the devolution does go ahead as expected this will be the end of the Western adventure in Iraq – which will result in a takeover by Iran and the complete Jihadisation of Asia from Pakistan all the way to Turkey.

3. In Afghanistan, Coalition forces are officially there on a "reconstruction mandate". In reality, they have come under massive attack from the Taleban (which was supposed to have been destroyed years ago). A British platoon had been sent on a four-day mission but got stuck in its platoon-house for eight weeks three of which were under "constant attack".

General David Richards, the NATO commander in Afghanistan has said that 70 per cent of Afghans will start supporting the Taleban if the situation does not improve in the next six months. If the situation has not improved in the past five years, how is it going to improve now? Even if it did improve for a while there is nothing to prevent the Taleban from returning to power in the long run.

4. Islamist Forces are getting strong support from several regions in Pakistan and Al Qaida is having a well organised network in Pakistan. Even Terrorist Organisations like Al Mouhajiron , Jaish e Mohammad , Lashkar e toiba , Hizbul Mujahideen is having Offices and open recuitment centers in Pakistan.

6. Muslims are organising themselves into a formidable force in India , they are getting voilent and radical in the areas where they are in significant population.

7. Bangladesh is a new safe haven for Islamic Jehadi Terrorists. Even Bangladesh is a transit root for Terrorists. Muslim Westerners are coming to Bangladesh and from their they get fake Bangladeshi Passports and are taken to Tribal areas of pakistan for Terror Training Program.

8. Today Sharia Court of Malaysia instructed Muslims not to celebrate Non Muslims festivals and not to wish Hindu Malaysians " Happy Dewali " ( Festival of Lights).

9. Christians minorities are persecuted in Indonesia daily . Christian girls are gangraped by muslim youth and children are burnt alive. Islamists of Sudan and Somalia are openly threatening USA about not to interfer in the affairs of Islamic Countries.

10. On balance, we may safely say that the West is losing the war against Islam exactly as predicted by Michael Scheuer, a senior CIA terrorism analyst, Bob Woodward, Thomas Rick and many others (see their books "Imperial Hubris: Why the West is losing the War on Terror", "State of Denial", "Fiasco", etc.) and as supported by post-9/11 experience.

And above all Muslim Clerics in Pakistan are issuing Death Threats " Fatwas " for Pope and President Bush openly.

West is losing its War against Terror . Islamists are getting victorious due to the political correctness of West .
