Jihadic Barbarians vs the Sleeping Western Giant By: Phyllis Chesler

“They all looked half drugged or half asleep, dull, as if the creatures had been hypnotized or poisoned….they walked and moved and went about their lives in a condition of sleepwalking: they were not aware of themselves, of other people, of what went on around them.”

Thus spake Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing in The Four-Gated City.

Do people really understand what is going on in our world right now? That language is being used to confuse us? America is the greatest “terrorist,” Israeli Jews are the “Nazis,” non-Muslim pro-western Brits are called “right wing fascists” because a small number stood up to 200 angry and armed Muslim Brits in front of a Birmingham mosque, parliamentarian Geert Wilders is considered a “racist Islamophobe” and faces a criminal trial because he tells the truth about Islamist jihad.

And, by the way, the so-called “fascist” Brits held aloft an Israeli flag and signs that said “Extremists Out,” “Britain Safe.” One woman interviewed said: “If people come here they should respect out laws.” Yes, this group may also be allied with genuine Nazi-era style racist-fascists—but then again, they may not be. The problem is that what they are saying has merit.

The Orwellian doublespeak (or Newspeak) does not stop here. People insist that honor killings which, according to my research, are mainly a Muslim-on-Muslim and male-on-female crime have absolutely nothing to do with Islam; that Islam is a religion of peace; that 9/11, 3/11, 7/7—have nothing to do with Saudi Arabia or al-Qaeda, that Arab and south Asian Muslims did not fly planes into American buildings and embassies, blow up trains in Madrid and London, perpetrate a massacre in Mumbai.

Naw. The Zionists and the CIA really did it all. But if the Arab and south Asian Muslims did do it too—they did so for a noble reason, to protest the Zionist “occupation” of disputed lands, long claimed as “Palestinian” by the Arab League, the United Nations, international human rights groups, and the western intelligentsia.

Arthur Koestler, in The God That Failed describes the intellectuals who joined the communist party in the 1930s as naive idealists and those who recruited and used them as carrying on a “white slave traffic whose victims were young idealists flirting with violence.” Or, as my friend and computer genius, Mitchell Price, has put it: Those Americans who keep giving a free pass to jihadists and Islamists are flirting with “the barbarian within.”

I’ll say.
