It is disconcerting to say the least when you hear Americans regurgitating the same anti-American venom our enemies are spouting, and discover that the Jihadists and Communists are regurgitating the very same words of Democrats and the Anti-war Left.
It’s sickening when Jihadists and enemies of America who declare their intentions to war on and kill Americans, are appeased and their justifications for killing Americans are quoted by presidential candidates like Ron Paul and Hillary Clinton as proofs that America is to blame for causing 9-11 and therefore we should surrender and make reparations.
It’s even worse when you discover that America’s enemies are actively recruiting the American Left to their cause of destroying America, a cause the Left has happily accepted.
In his latest video-taped message, Al Qaida leader Osama Bin Laden tried to lay the foundations for an alliance between radical Islamism and Western leftist “progressisim”.
He quoted with admiration a number of American and European leftists, including Noam Chomsky, the polemicist-cum-linguist who believes that the United States is a “rogue state” and the source of all evil on earth.
The dream of an Islamist-Marxist alliance, however, is not confined to Bin Laden and Al Qaida. It also plays a part in the overall strategy of Iran.
It is in the name of “a global progressist front”, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez are sponsoring a number of projects to underline “the ideological kinship of the left and revolutionary Islam”.
…With the blessings of Chavez, who partly financed the event, and Ahmadinejad the hope was that the conference would produce a synthesis of Marxist and Khomeinist ideologies and highlight what the Iranian leader has labelled “the divine aspect of revolutionary war”.
…participants agreed that the sole source of evil in the world was the US and its “earth-devouring ambitions.”
The Khomeinists were pleased to hear their European and Latin American guests denounce “America’s criminal plans to attack the Islamic revolution”, and insist that Iran had every right to develop its nuclear capabilities.
Mortaza Firuzabadi boasted that the banner of fighting America “everywhere and all the time” had now passed to Islamists.
