Based upon her personal experiences, Garbriel addresses the West’s lack of understanding and ignorance of the ways and thinking of the Middle East. She identifies mistakes the West has made in consistently underestimating the single-mindedness with which fundamentalist Islam has pursued its goals over the past thirty years. Through the telling of her own story, she outlines the history, social movements, and religious divisions that have led to today’s critical conflict.

US Abandoning Israel to Appease Nuke-Crazed, Iranian Crocodile Will Backfire on World. Israel Surgeon Urges Pre-Emptive, Humanitarian Strikes on Iran
The welcome appearances of Khatami and Ahmadinejad on US soil may indicate that Washington may be choosing to distance itself from Israel and adopt a more benign approach toward the Iranian nuclear weapons program, hoping to defer the sticky situation of dealing with it to not interfere with Republican's image in the 2008 Presidential elections.
PM Ariel Sharon had once admonished the then neophyte President Bush, "In 1938, enlightened Europe sacrificed Czechoslovakia for the sake of a temporary,convenient solution. Don't try to appease the Arabs at our expense ... Israel will not be Czechoslovakia. Israel will fight terrorism." http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/printer-friendly.asp?
While Sharon's successor PM Ehud Olmert is expected to remain in Jerusalem to concentrate on getting Israel's house in order, Southern California Christians and Jews concerned about America using Israel as modern-day Czechoslovakia welcomed an unofficial visit by religious-party, Israeli Parliamentarian Dr. Aryeh Eldad. Crowds warmed to Surgeon Eldad reiterating Sharon's original warning- but added a humanitarian appeal for US pre-emptive military intervention against Iran's nuclear weapons industry. America's conventional weaponry intervention would avert the need for an Israeli unconventional assertion - which might be a unilateral Israel's only assured effective solution to averting Iran's professed goal to wipe Israel off of the map, soon possessing the means for it.A member of one of Israel's religious parties, Dr. Eldad appeared in L.A. to beseech Americans to reject what he believes is the Administration's appeasement plan toward Iran's nuclear development. In exchange for Iran's pledge to minimize Iranian activity in Iraq, US non-intervention would enable Iran to develop nukes the imagined for use against the Jewish State, but in actuality could be used against everyone.
Dr. Eldad contends that abandoning Israel against the Russian-backed, apocalyptic, Iranian crocodile would backfire against the West, as a nuclear Iran could move to control the entire Middle East's oil. Their supplying nukes to terror networks would damage the West's economy and intimidate resistance to spreading Islamic social and political domination. He rejects the GOP strategy to avert political damage from America engaging Iran prior to 2008 elections as short-sighted and life-threatening. He calls on the West to appeal to Washington to initiate a limited tragedy to avert a greater, global catastrophe.
How long would America protect itself by abandoning and sacrificing Israel to fend for itself agaisnt the Islamist juggernaut in America's "Proxy War" intitiated by Russia and China?
What kind of America might exist after 24-months (til '08 elections) of global nuclear brinksmanship led by global- apocalyptic, jihadi, convert-or-die Holy Warriors, supporting infiltrated sleeper-cells integrated throughout society?

The victory of the will of free-people over domination commemorated on this anniversary of the Battle of Britain, was today further magnified today by heaven's reclaiming of the soul of the clarion conscience for freedom and resistance, writer Mrs. Oriana Fallaci.
We commemorate her passing today by referencing her article published in Corriere della Serre, in Dec 2002, in which she dedicated herself to support of the Jews and the Jewish Nation, and renounced her earlier, misguided defense of the Palestinian branch of the global, Islamist crusade.
I Stand with Israel: I Stand with the Jews
I find it shameful that ... primarily through the fault of the left... Jews in Italian cities are once again afraid. And in French cities and Dutch cities and Danish cities and German cities, it is the same. I find it shameful that Jews tremble at the passage of the scoundrels dressed like suicide bombers just as they trembled during Krystallnacht, the night in which Hitler gave free rein to the Hunt of the Jews.
I find it shameful and see in all this the rise of a new fascism, a new nazism. A fascism, a nazism, that much more grim and revolting because it is conducted and nourished by those who hypocritically pose as do-gooders, progressives, communists, pacifists, Catholics or rather Christians, and who have the gall to label a warmonger anyone like me who screams the truth...
I have often had disagreements with the Israelis, ugly ones, and in the past I have defended the Palestinians a great deal. Maybe more than they deserved. But I stand with Israel, I stand with the Jews. I stand just as I stood as a young girl during the time when I fought with them, and when the Anna Marias were shot. I defend their right to exist, to defend themselves, to not let themselves be exterminated a second time. And disgusted by the anti-Semitism of many Italians, of many Europeans, I am ashamed of this shame that dishonors my Country and Europe. At best, it is not a community of States, but a pit of Pontius Pilates. And even if all the inhabitants of this planet were to think otherwise, I would continue to think so.

"Certain Western liberal intellectual circles have proven themselves capable of coming up with a seemingly limitless supply of specious reasons to explain, understand and even justify this visceral hatred of the West by large parts of the Arab-Islamic world.
Ultimately the reason is very simple: resentment of the ascent of the West.
Islam so far has proven congenitally incapable of doing what Christianity has done - allowing the evolution of a society in which the political and religious establishments are independent of one another. It is this evolution that facilitated and expedited the ascent of the West, by enabling the development of a political system based on democracy, freedom of thought and speech, and religious and cultural pluralism. These then spurred the major technological, scientific, economic and social advancements that empowered the West and have enabled it to dominate the globe politically and economically for the past 200 years.
THE ISLAMIC world has had ample opportunity to adopt the values that were instrumental in the West's ascent, but its political and religious establishments have chosen not to. The reason is very clear: They would rather wield total power over a failed society than share power with other groups in a successful one.
To facilitate this they have abused their oil wealth. Instead of using it to promote and develop their societies, they have impoverished them. Petrodollars that could have been spent on creating first-class educational systems have instead been used to create and maintain security apparatuses whose sole purpose is to ensure the absolute rule of a corrupt elite by repressing any sign of dissent.
These same political and religious leaders have constantly aided and abetted the most reactionary elements within their religious establishments, which in return have channeled popular frustrations generated by the regimes' failures outwards, against the "infidel West."
The Islamic world has, for the most part, been willing to buy this, preferring to blame the West for conspiring against it rather than take responsibility for its spectacular failures. "
"Five years after the Twin Towers crashed and the Pentagon burned I find myself profoundly soured on the idea that the two communities can ever work together to defuse the disharmony between them. Certainly not for the foreseeable future. Perhaps never."
