The world is witnessing a new upstart movement. Where France, Germany and Russia oppose the USA at every turn. I recently read an interesting article regarding this new movement. One that combines “Anti-Americanism” and Anti-Semitism, and could develope into the most dangerous political hate-cocktail that ever existed.
Here are some tantalizing quotes I recently read in an article in the “International Herald Tribune” :
“The French-German-Russian coalition (joined by China and Syria) proclaims itself the “moral” axis, the “peace camp.” But this “anti-war party” has its feet firmly planted in war. For those who may have forgotten, think of the Caucasus, where the Russian Army razed Chechnya’s capital city, Grozny, and left from 100,000 to 300,000 cadavers in its wake.
No more horrific war is being waged against civilians today. The Holocaust Museum in Washington – which can hardly be suspected of spreading extremist Islamic propaganda – ranks the Chechen conflict No. 1 on its “genocide watch.” What are the anti-war activists dreaming of when Chirac promises Putin his support?
In the name of “international law,” Paris and Berlin are choosing curious allies. Witness the recent election, thanks to the abstention of the Europeans, of Libya to the chair of the UN Human Rights Commission! Putin, Jiang Zemin of China, Moammar Gadhafi of Libya, Bashar Assad of Syria: why is the “peace camp” attracting butchers?”
“Certainly the Iraqi tyrant is a villain. He’s tortured, killed, gassed. But how many other leaders around the world have blood on their hands? Why pick on Saddam?” Because he is more frightening. Because he is an ever-present powder keg in the heart of a fire zone. Because we must stop him from playing with his apocalyptic matches.
Imagine Kim Jong Il, North Korea’s leader, with his arsenal, ruling Iraq, threatening to pulverize not Seoul but Riyadh. The planet would be petrified! The Iraqi problem is not that of a local dictator, but a global peril. However, if you listen to the “peace party,” it’s always too early – “Iraq has no nuclear weapons; there’s no need to intervene” – or too late – “North Korea has nuclear weapons; it’s too dangerous to take action.”
Paris and Berlin are living on a cloud.
