Op-Ed: Deluxe Jihadists? Dear World, I Told You So
I saw this coming and I warned you but you wouldn’t listen, so now, welcome to a new group of uber crazies that has arrived at your gates. In my writings from columns to books I saw it all months ago, years ago. No, I am not a prophet. But I am a pessimist and that’s nearly the same thing. We expect the worst and Shazam, we win, you lose. We pessimists are correct 90 percent of the time. Sad but true.
You were so focused on tiny Israel that you lost sight of the big picture – your real enemies would be coming from within and your big fish would devour your small fish. First it was al-Qaeda and then it was the Taliban and now, congratulations, something perfectly evil calling itself ISIS has grown out of those lunatics and behold, the entire asylum has been emptied out.
Or so we hope – because it’s a stretch to imagine anything much worse in your neighborhoods than wholesale beheadings from their Sunnis to your Shiites, or from their Koran to your Koran. Among yourselves can you tell one brute from another and does it matter when all hell breaks loose as it already has in Iraq?
Within the last 48 hours they executed 1,700 Iraqi soldiers – fellow Muslims -- and they laughed while they did this.
These Deluxe Jihadists are so far gone that even al-Qaeda tremble and head for the hills at first sight of them. Some run to Israel for safety. Where else?
In about the same amount of time it took the LA Kings to beat the NY Rangers for the Stanley Cup these new and improved maniacs began swallowing up miles of Iraq that cost us a treasure in dollars and blood – and I told you that Saddam was the lesser of two evils. But you wouldn’t listen.
I told you that immediately after Obama’s misbegotten prisoner swap, surely Israel will pay.
Dear Bibi: Stand tall. Imagine these meshugganah in a two-state solution. Only days ago these peace partners kidnapped three yeshiva boys – and may God bring them home safely – and you blame Hamas. Maybe it is Hamas and maybe it isn’t. They are all the same, these people.
They are a threat to Israel and they are a threat to all mankind. But mankind can’t seem to take the hint.
Dear US Presbyterian Church: Hint! These jihadists are coming after us. They have taken our most precious asset, our sons….kidnapped for being Jewish.
But don’t get too comfortable. For you are next. So go ahead and boycott Israel while you can. Keep this up and soon your churches will be wearing minarets.
This is already happening throughout Europe.
Imagine what awaits you here, Dear Infidels.
Ponder this from T.E. Lawrence (Peter O’Toole) in the movie Lawrence of Arabia:
“So long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people – greedy, barbarous and cruel.”
So do you think what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas and what happens in Iraq stays in Iraq? Don’t be so sure.
Politics is not local anymore and neither is Islamic terror. As I once warned, “The Koran has arrived and it has come to devour the Bible.”
The three abducted Jewish teens were returning from Bible class!
These savages on steroids do not care if you are Jewish, Christian or even Arab…and it is no safer in America than it is in Israel. Nothing is safe.
Upon his release from an American prison in Iraq, the terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who now heads the ISIS insurgency sent this message:
“I’ll see you in New York.”
