I Have a Dream - Middle East Edition

Reader comment on item: The Sick Middle East

Submitted by TL Winslow (United States), Jan 24, 2014 at 10:15

The patient is sick, yes, but what is the cure? The short and sweet answer is the horrible lying hate-filled ideology of Islamism. It has to go, it really has to go before Arabs, Turks, Egyptians, Persians etc. can rejoin the human race with a new paradigm that makes them obsess on something other than a dead Hitler ruling from the grave commanding them to sacrifice themselves to the fantasy of world conquest.

How about our Western paradigms? Even the worst are better than what they have. What we need is a Great Muslim Apostasy, freeing hundreds of millions from the spell of the Wicked Witch, followed by ex-Muslims dropping Muhammad's jihad and Jew hatred and asking the Jewish state of Israel to help the ex-Muslim World rejoin the human race after redrawing the lines. Even though some fraction of Jews will continue to waste their lives obsessing on the Torah, those who have junked the Quran will be freed mentally to make the Middle East a credit to the world instead of an eyesore.

In short, a Greater State of Israel stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates is the linchpin of permanent peace and prosperity in the Middle East, after which all their economic problems will be solved at jet speed. The mental poison of Islam that disses Israel for wanting to be Jewish will be replaced by recognition of Jewish as a nationality that welcomes even Arabs after they drop Islam and accept Israel's existence along with the rights of Jews and other basic conditions.

I HAVE A DREAM of a Middle East where little Jewish and Arab children play together, and the Quran, Muhammad, and Allah are nowhere in sight or in mind.
