The Theme Netanyahu Dropped Smack Into The Middle Of The U. N.

by Hugh Fitzgerald

Brian of London has pointed out the most important part of Netanyahu's speech at the U.N.. It was the mention of "militant Islam" six times. One example is here:

"And these critics continue to press Israel to make far-reaching concessions without first assuring Israel’s security. They praise those who unwittingly feed the insatiable crocodile of militant Islam as bold statesmen. They cast as enemies of peace those of us who insist that we must first erect a sturdy barrier to keep the crocodile out, or at the very least jam an iron bar between its gaping jaws."

It was not all the talk about "peace" -- that could better have been replaced, but circumstances did not permit it, with a discussion of the difference between a "peace" guaranteed through deterrence and a "peace" that relies on a "peace treaty" with Muslim states or entities that cannot be anything other than a "truce treaty," a hudna, to be broken by the Muslim side -- but never by the non-Muslims in the slightest particular, oh no, that would be impossible, that would be intolerable, that would be punishable by mass death. No, it was, I repeat, that mention of "militant Islam."

That's the most important part of his speech. the theme that has now been introduced, been adumbrated in the shadow-war of words that, little by little, will become, not because the Israelis will do it, but because many others will do it, and keep doing it, the major theme of the age, and many will come to understand, if they do not already, that the war against Israel is a classic Jihad, and all this business about the "Palestinian" people merely a useful invention for the propaganda and diplomatic campaign the Arab Muslims have been conducting, with great success, since late 1967. But as the observable behavior of Muslim states into which we have poured hundreds of billions, behavior that we will regard with fury as a blend of treachery and deep ingratitude -- think of Pakistan -- as the mistreatment of so many different kinds of non-Muslims in so many different lands where Muslims dominate becomes ever more obvious, ever more impossible to hide or explain away (in Nigeria, in the Sudan, in Pakistan, in Bangladesh, in Malaysia, in Indonesia, in Egypt, in Iraq, in this place and in that), and as the disruption, and expense, and daily unpleasantness, that the millions of Muslim migrants, with their aggressive behavior, have brought to the insufficiently vigilant people of Western Europe -- all of this will change, is changing, the understanding of the war against Israel.

The business at the U.N. may have been seen by some Arabs as a triumph for their diplomatic pressure, and their incessant propaganda. No, it actually marks the farthest point that they have or can reach, and from now on out Israel will be rescuedi not by its own countering of such propaganda but by the growing knowledge, among Westerners, of what is in the texts, and tenets, of Islam, and how those texts and tenets explain, and even predict, the behavior of Muslims and make everyone more aware of the menace that will not go away if a Muslim victory, on the road to the final victory over Israel, is achieved.

Whetted not sated, whetted not sated, whetted not sated. Write it out, say it, a hundred or a thousand times, and then make sure everyone understands what that phrase applies to, and what it means.

Netanyahu has now put that phrase there, put a bee in the bonnet of those who are themselves suffering, or sense they are about to suffer, from the forces of Islam, the Camp of Islam.

Now that theme has to be developed, the various aspects of it cunningly deployed, until mention of Slow Jihad and Fast Jihad, and the psychological aspects of the dhimmmi state, and such notions as taqiyya and kitman, are well understood, and even mention of the Treaty of Hudaibiyya becomes de rigueur in any discussion of "peace treaties" and deterrence, or in Arab terms Darura, meaning the "Necessity" that must be yielded to, is understood as the only sure way to keep the peace or what peace, given the doctrine of Islam, can realistically be kept.

It will happen. Not all at once. Netanyahu was wise to introduce the theme in the way he did. Now it will require a small army of those who write and speak to deploy the facts and the logic, to help familiarize a public that knows, in both Western Europe and in North America, that something is terribly wrong, that that something has to do with how Muslims behave and how they think, but have not yet allowed themselves the leisure to study and to think and to make sense of things, and when it comes to Israel, yesterday's men with the pieties of the past that were cultivated by Arab propaganda still are in vogue, have not yet been analyzed sufficiently, held up for ridicule in a sufficient number of public squares. But events, including the spectacle of unending violence and aggression within Muslim states, will force more and more of those who write about the Middle East, and those who make policy for the Middle East, to recognize the centrality of what Islam inculcates to all that happens in Muslim lands. And the impatience that some feel for that "Arab-Israeli conflict that just goes on and on" will become, instead, an understanding that the Jihad against Israel goes on forever, and it is not a question of trying to find a "solution" for the conflict --there is none -- but rather of ensuring Israel's military superiority, and giving the Arabs and Muslims to understand that their propaganda, which has won many victories, is now coming undone, and far from convincing, is making the West more and more wary.

But this depends on a willingness to grasp the nature of Islam, to understand what it is that makes hundreds of millions of Muslims think as they do, raised up in societies suffused with a Total Belief-System that rests on the belief that all of humanity is divided between Muslims and Non-Muslims, Believers and Infidels, and between the two there is a state of permanent war (though not always of permanent warfare), and it is the duty incumbent on all Muslims to participate, directly or indirectly, in the struggle or Jihad to remove all obstacles to the spread, and then the triumph, of Islam, so that all over the world, Islam dominates and Muslims rule.

Without that understanding, there can be only folly and frustration and the kind of squandering, of men, money, materiel, and morale, that we have seen in Iraq, and Afghanistan, and Pakistan, and that we see, too, in all those vain and expensive efforts to "integrate Muslims" into non-Muslim societies. It can't be done, not unless one convinces Muslims in large numbers to jettison Islam itself. They can't. They won't.
