On Terrorism
Special Contribution
By Zvi November
Terror grips Paris in shootings and explosions.

Terrorists are quite successful in staging attacks in the heart of Europe even when Western intelligence agencies anticipate them. No doubt these terrorists/activists (regarded as soldiers by their sponsoring organizations) enjoy a large measure of freedom of movement because they can easily embed themselves in local, sympathetic Moslem communities.

Some of these European Moslem neighborhoods, especially in France with its 10% Moslem population, are under the tutelage of the Moslem Brotherhood and al Qaeda preachers. Often, these Moslem areas are also dangerous 'no go' suburbs.

Until now, most western governments have implemented appeasement policies to placate the Arabs at home and abroad. France, for instance, has a long history of identifying with the "Palestinians" while criticizing Israel. Western politicians starting with Barak Hussein Obama claim that most Moslems are 'peace-loving' "moderates." They also assert that Moslem radicals (as the UK's David Cameron frequently declares) 'are not really Moslems.' This, of course, is a misleading lie.

One of Israel's leading Islamist scholars, Mordecai Kedar has explained succinctly that there is only one Koran and supplemental Islamic literature. The interpretation of these Holy Scriptures does not vary in any significant way. Kedar says that there is no "moderate" or "radical" Islam. Truly religious Moslems emphasize jihad and carry out jihadi attacks to the best of their well-financed abilities. Non-religious Moslems simply neglect their Koran obligations.

Israel has always been and still is the object of Islam inspired terror attacks. Jews are fire-bombed, stabbed, run-over, shot and stoned by Arab "Palestinians" in their continuous effort to drive Jews out of Israel. Indeed, about 10% of Israelis reside permanently abroad. But the world does not refer to Arab terror attacks in Israel as terror.

The antagonistic BBC, CNN, FRANCE 24, CCTV (Central China) and many more networks report on "violence" and "militants" and help disseminate "Palestinian" propaganda that substitutes "resistance" for terrorism which is the same Islamic terrorism now plaguing Western Europe and, to a lesser extent, the US.

Arab/Islamic terrorism is not a case of spontaneous combustion or a reaction to alleged oppression. The Moslem Brotherhood is well-established in every Arab country. Their imams teach Jew-hatred and encourage jihad against Christians and the West. Pakistan had 20,000 madrassas s where fundamental hatred of the modern world is inculcated into the heads of easily brain washed children. Fifty percent of the university students in Saudi Arabia study "Islamic sciences." The Saudis spend billions of dollars every year to propagate their Wahhabi version of Islam all over the world wherever Moslems have created communities.

Saudi-trained preachers run the Saudi-funded mosques and help pave the way for the coming Moslem domination of Europe. Their basic message is: Islam is superior to immoral western culture which has to be replaced by Islam.

This is the very same theme that has defined Moslem-Christian relations from the very first moment that Islam exploded out of the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century. At that time the civilized Mediterranean/Byzantium world in the West and the Persian Sassanid Empire in the East were locked in a two hundred year long struggle that left both of them too exhausted to repel the Arabs.

Unfortunately, western leaders today fail to grasp the historical depth of the conflict and Islam's mission to replace Christianity and Judaism. Our heads of states discuss terror as if it has no roots, no connection to Islam and is not the latest phase in a 1400 year long confrontation. Given this self-inflicted blindness, Western leaders are not really prepared to fight Daish (IS) and all the other jihadist terror armies as well as the ruthless Iranian Shiites.
