in response to reader comment: Will A New Third Party Survived Sharon's Departure?

Every time I hear the term "Kadima" these days I shudder. It sounds like some pipedream world created by leftist idealogues as a sop to the worrys of the proleteriat about an uncertain and unstable economic future. I've heard it all before and I've seen it fail before.

I think it must become obvious that you cannot drive nails with a fly swatter. The point needs to be driven home with no uncertainty that the world will not tolerate an Islamic hegemony in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world.. If Muslims will not be satisfied with what they have then they must be forcibly made to remit and recant even that. I think it's time for a counter Jihad against terrorism and all those who wish to destroy Israel.

I do not think the Russia will be so willing in the future to defend the Islamists as she was in the past. She has had her own taste of what it means to appease terrorists in Chechnya. Prehaps now she will not be so willing to criticize Israel.

As for the Chinese, they will as well come along eventually because of the trouble being brewed by Islamists in their western provinces.

Until the world recognizes the cancer represented by radical Islam and deals with it like the disease it is our world will continue to suffer needlessly.
