The West is Naïve, Greedy and Cowardly in Dealing with Islamists

To be more precise, SOME Westerners are naïve, greedy, and coward.

Some of them, especially the politicians, act in good faith toward the Islamists and Muslim terrorists. Guantanamo will be closed, and its inmates will be rehabilitated in the U.S. and some European countries-although everybody knows that these men, at the time of their arrest, were not accidentally roaming about Afghanistan as tourists, but were deadly criminals fighting alongside their Taliban comrades.

Standing beside Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari, the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a press conference on 6 May 2009 that she "deeply regretted" the death of civilians in a recent clash of the NATO-Afghan forces with the Taliban terrorists, and promised a thorough investigation.

But Clinton should by now know that the terrorists, whether Taliban or the Hamas, do not value human life. They use civilians as human shields when they fight the "infidels." This has become a pattern in Afghanistan and Gaza. Besides, as these terrorists do not wear a uniform, it is difficult to tell whether they are civilians or terrorists.

Most reports from Afghanistan corroborate the fact that the Taliban deliberately kill innocent children and women in clashes with Western troops to tarnish the image of the NATO troops and present them as the brutal aggressors both of the home and international consumption.

It is deeply regrettable when innocent civilians are accidentally killed, but it is the Taliban, who must be blamed for the tragedy, and nobody else. Very often, Western soldiers risk their life in order to avoid killing civilians.

Ban Ki Moon, the UN Secretary General, also expressed regret for the death of civilians in Afghanistan and Gaza without mentioning the real culprits. After the latest war in Gaza, he visited Gaza and put all blame for the destruction and loss of civilian life squarely on Israel.

Ban Ki Moon never mentioned that Hamas terrorists use civilians as human shields and bear the blame for the loss of innocent lives.

On the other hand, some Western politicians and bankers are greedy, and do not value human life. They would mind converting to Islam if that would help them make money with with businesses with the petrodollar-rich Arabs. They support regimes like the one in Saudi Arabia, which funds fueling of Islamic extremism across the globe.

When Peer Steinbrück, the German Finance Minister, blasted Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, and the poor African country of Burkina Faso for harboring tax-evaders from Germany and from all over the world (in a parliamentary debate on May 5, 2009), he was criticized by some politicians and mainstream media. How dare he does so?

You are not allowed to touch on two issues in Europe: tax havens and radical Islam. These areas have become taboo.

For including Burkina Faso in the list of European tax havens, the Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker was unhappy and said, "Steinbrück has gone too far."

Actually, Steinbrück did not. For decades now, these countries have been safe havens for tax-evaders and corrupt money plundered by dictators from developing countries.

While in power, dictators from Africa, Asia, and Latin America stock millions in public funds in their private accounts in Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Austria, and nobody dare demand the return of the money to the states, stolen from.

Oil Sheikhs from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates have also stocked billions of petrodollars in their private accounts at European banks, and nobody dare criticize that. Money is welcome, but criticism is not.

Everybody knows that these Sheikhs fund Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Gaza, but nobody dare say that openly. That might jeopardize lucrative businesses with these Sheikhs.

European governments and media suppress any criticism of these corrupt accounts.

Non-profit organizations, like Transparency International (TI), do not want to take on this issue any longer. TI has filed a court case against corrupt African leaders in France. Omar Bongo from Gabon, Denis Sassou Nguesso from Congo Brazzaville, and Teodoro Obiang Nguema from Equatorial Guinea are accused of corruption.

I hope that one day TI would also file a similar case against the oil Sheikhs. Light must be shed on those to whom the billions of dollars belong, and how this money is being spent.

Genocide is immoral, but corruption is equally immoral. Millions of innocent people in Africa, Asia, and Latin America starve to death because their leaders' plundering of public money. Both genocide and starvation lead to the same end: Death of innocent people. And those, responsible for both, must be prosecuted.

"Pro-Köln", a public movement in Germany, is branded by some German politicians and mainstream media as "fascist", simply because this movement opposes radical Islam and the construction of a huge mosque in Cologne. This is sheer hypocrisy.

The Pope preached peace and interfaith dialogue during his latest visit to the Middle East, but failed to condemn Hamas, which denies the existence of Israel and aims at wiping it out from the world man. Check out Hamas' Charter.

If the Pope and his aides listened and read carefully what Islamists say about their understanding of "interfaith dialogue", they would be shocked and might wake up.

Islamists insist that Islam is the best religion on earth, although it is extremely intolerant, denigrates women, and incites hatred and violence. They preach that if you accept our "religion," which is the "Word of Allah," we can enter into a dialogue with you.

How can you enter into a dialogue with someone, who denies your tenets and principles of religious freedom, and preaches uncivilized practices?

Only when the West starts recognizing that a spade is a spade, such a dialogue could start making sense; otherwise, it is propagandistic and futile.

Many Europeans, including some Germans, are naïve and believe, at face value, everything the Islamists tell them. For example, Islamists tell the Germans that they "fully accept" the German constitution and its principles. But they do not know that this is a lie. When no media are around, Islamists insist that Sharia is "the best constitution." Furthermore, according to the Koran and Hadith, Muslims are allowed to deceive the infidels if that helps advance Islam.

Unfortunately, some Westerners are consciously and unconsciously helping the Islamists spread the virus of radical Islam. This must be stopped and combated everywhere.

Both radical Islam and Western stooges must be combated. They pose a big threat to the world peace and civilization.
