    Insightful--Hanson at his best.

    Will the West Stumble?
    By Victor Davis Hanson, Real Clear Politics
    November 21, 2006

    Out of all those ashes of failure and contradiction arose the Phoenix of Islamic fascism whose origins Western experts endlessly dissect. Who and what caused this foul apparition that has succeeded fascism, Nazism, and communism as the world's next bane?

    Is the hatred and venom a feral shoot of Islam, or an import from the West during the dark times of the 1930s? Or is it a bastard of Soviet statism that infected the Middle East after the war?

    Did globalization bring the reality of failure to the Arab street though cell phones and satellite television — and with that realization a deadly response by dictators, who paid off terrorists to blame the West, not themselves, for the glaring disparities?

    We now are arguing over the significance of schisms between Shiite and Sunni. Or is the real story the regional grievances of Hamas versus Hezbollah versus al Qaeda, or again the difference between the autocracies of an Assad, Saddam Hussein, or Iranian mullocracy? Like tiny wildfires can they be put out with buckets here and there, or are they simply embers of a global conflagration?

    The origins are irrelevant. The muslims HATE, simply. They dont hate anyone or anything in particular, they simply hate. The live to HATE. They arent HATEFUL, they ARE hate.

    The only reason the Islamo facists have gained any foothold on world power is because of oil. Otherwise they would just be pounding a bunch of sand while performing clitorectomies(sp?- removal of the clitoris) on their daughters, and screaming how evil homosexuality is, before they go and buttfuck their uncles screaming, ALLAH IS GREAT!
