The reverse truth is the truth

Reader comment on item: A Critical Moment For Turkey

Submitted by Yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), May 19, 2007 at 12:43

3 years later professor Pipes arrives at the cynical conclusion I reached in april 2004. In the Middle East, to see the truth you must reverse it. See the link http://www.acpr.org.il/ENGLISH-NATIV/03-issue/yuval-3.htm

Quote: "But her (Condy's) superficial analysis has one inadvertent benefit: given Turkey's fervid anti-Americanism these days, American support for the AKP might actually cause it to lose votes." This is not cynicism, this is reality in the Middle East. If you wish events to turn in a certain direction, do the opposite.

For example, one of the commentators derides American support for democratic reform in the Palestinian Authority, that parasitic entity that no basis in reality except Judeocide. The reform, instead of leading to further democratization and peace-seeking, brought the Hamas to power. That was the most beneficial event to Israel since the Oslo accords which legitimated a pack of blood-thirsty terrorists. Once Terror changed name, from Secularist Fatah to Religious Hamas it was deligitimized' allwing Israel to fight back.

The US took a dim view of Turkey hosting Hamas delegation, even though that delegation's intentions towards Israel and the West are exactly the same as Yasser Arafat and his hench-men. Now Jewish hold on Judea is far more secure, terrorists find it far more difficult to launch "Martyrdom" attacks, and must settle for primitive rocket launchers from Gaza, a Hamas strong-hold. More-over, President Bush's Road Map, leading to the dismemberment of Israel along Saudi plans appears totally irrelevant, because Hamas is in power, thanks to American intervention.

Did the State Department think in this devious circuitous route? I doubt it. Condoleeza Rice is after all a dyed-in-the-wool Western Intellectual incapable of inculcating Middle Eastern realities. Hell, even Israeli leaders are generally incapable of such inculcation.

Further, Unified Europe is the greatest threat to US dominance. A belligerant Europe even more so. What is the quickest way to cut Europe down to size? Flood it with a hundred million Muslims who will bring Islamic mores and norms to Europe, reducing European abilities to Moroccan, Algerian, Pakistani, etc levels. Is that Condy's elliptical thinking? Unlikely, but then, the reverse of the truth is the truth.
