I titled the post below this one  “No Need for Words…”

This one is different.  It is filled with words.  Words you need to read.  Comprehend.  Understand.  Pass along to others.  Because the words that activist and author Pamela Geller has chosen to write are exactly the right ones we need to save ourselves from the growing madness that threatens to consume us, our children, our country.

I’m reposting a portion of what she’s written.  Please, please, PLEASE read this.  And take it to those others in your world, that they might understand too.

WE ARE ALL GOING DOWN

There are most definite points in history when things are on the cusp of real change. More specifically, defining moments, when the direction of history can go either way.

Recent obvious examples are Bush’s description of Islam as “a religion of peace” in the wake of the Islamic jihadi attack on America. It wasn’t that Bush was a shill for jihad, it was just that he was uninformed and worse, not curious. He had whispering in his ear the stealth jihadist Grover Norquist and his band of Muslim Brotherhood brothers propagandizing the nonsensical meme that it was “just a few fringe extremists” who “hijacked” the religion — as well as the planes. Ten years and 15,511islamic attacks later catastrophically demonstrates what a turning point that window of opportunity really was.

Grover Norquist is a powerhouse with deep big pockets. Many Republicans are in his pockets and in his debt. Norquist’s ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been known for years. Just six weeks after 9/11, The New Republic ran an exposé explaining how Norquist arranged for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 — to show how Muslims rejected terrorism. (more here)

On the afternoon of September 26, George W. Bush gathered 15 prominent Muslim- and Arab-Americans at the White House. With cameras rolling, the president proclaimed that “the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good.” It was a critically important moment, a statement to the world that America’s Muslim leaders unambiguously reject the terror committed in Islam’s name.

Game over.

A second historic crossroad was in the Summer of 2006, when the jihadist terror group, Hezb’Allah (party of god) attacked Israel. For the first time in recent history, Israel had the tacit support of the US and two Arab countries to rout the barbaric Islamic jihadist group in Lebanon. Apart from their aim of promised Jewish genocide, Hezb’Allah followed in Arafat’s bloody footsteps in Lebanon and destroyed what once was a prospering, thriving Christian nation.

In the summer of 2006, they attacked Israel, kidnapped and killed Jewish soldiers (torturing them in ways unimaginable) and went to war.

The UN and the international community did nothing and said nothing when the bodies of those kidnapped soldiers were returned two years later:

Rabbi Yisrael Weiss, former Chief Rabbi of the IDF, who was present during the transfer of the fallen soldiers, said that “the verification process yesterday was very slow, because, if we thought the enemy was cruel to the living and the dead, we were surprised, when we opened the caskets, to discover just how cruel. And I’ll leave it at that.”

Israel should have destroyed them. Instead, Olmerde went to the OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference)-controlled UN and sought a resolution whose conditions have never been met by the soldiers of allah. This was an historic turning point. Bush and co. expected Israel to hold up her end in the strategic alliance in the war on the global jihad. The US was in Iraq and Afghanistan doing just that. A defeat of the Iranian proxy Hezb’Allah would have been a crushing blow to the mullahcracy in Iran. What a Sun Tzu move.

But Olmerde hesitated, and the coalition of the willing suffered a grave loss. It was a TKO for the two camps duking it out in the Bush White House, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bolton, etc. vs Colin Powell, Armitage, Nick Burns, Steve Hadley, etc., and been finally decided and things would never be the same again. Individualism lost to collectivism. Reason lost to irrationality. American sovereignty lost to international whore law.

What followed was inevitable: the relentless anti-American six-year Bush-bashing campaign in the media succeeded. Bush lost Congress, Rumsfeld resigned, Bolton did the same and Cheney went on mute.

The lights dimmed in the west as Atlas shrugged.

We must be as passionate and extreme in fighting the forces of evil as they are in destroying the good.

José María Aznar was Prime Minister of Spain when the world was a wholly different place, as recently as 2004. He served at a time when men, not appeasers, shills and tools for jihad, were driving the bus. There was Bush, the inestimable John Howard (Australia), Blair (no great shakes but light years ahead of brick brain Brown), and one of the best of the group — Spanish prime minister José María Aznar.

This group did not seize the moment. This group thought they had time and reason on their side. They did not. They blew it. “The greatest threat to mankind and civilization is the spread of the totalitarian philosophy,” Ayn Rand wrote. “Its best ally is not the devotion of its followers but the confusion of its enemies.” To fight it, we must understand it.

THE REST AT ATLAS SHRUGS
