America will yet abandon Israel

Reader comment on item: The Voice of America, Silenced on Radical Islam

Submitted by rensburg (Canada), Mar 8, 2009 at 22:12

I am actually of the opinion that neither Janin nor Maiwandi have evil intentions or desire the end of America or the Western world. Their actions, instead, pose a fascinating observation, namely that Western cultures are unable to name their enemy in the current political framing provided by American Instigated Multiculturalism. Naming an enemy violates the political and cultural boundaries set by the current imposision of Leftist hegemony, and the results are that in situations such as at VOA, Jenin and Maiwandi merely act according to the political and ethical directions imposed on them by their culture.

Will this ever change? Not easily, as not being able to name an enemy gives the false impression that no enemy exists. Of course, a complete cultural change will be needed to turn this around - something which apparently cannot happen overnight, and will cause tremendous push-back and accusations from Leftists in very powerful positions.

Overal, we (the rest of the world), will have to accept that the American moment is over. A leftist ideology with American roots (Lewinsky, etc) has captured the Democratic Party. Exponentially quick demographic changes will put the Left permanently into power, and declining American influence in the world will further embolden her enemies. This story is not half-over, but clearly the American century is screeching to a halt, with dramatic effects on the rest of the world, from China and Russia to Europe and Africa, while Israel will be abandoned. Fasten your seat-belts.
