As I have written in previous essays, unfortunately the world continues its dangerous path of unremitting deterioration. In spite of the long-lasting consequences of genocide and mass atrocities committed in Rwanda, Albania, Bosnia, Armenia and of course the Holocaust, the citizens of the world have not yet learned its lessons of history and the leaders of the so-called Free World unwisely continue to appease and make pacts with countries who promulgate hatred, and threaten the world with nuclear warheads and biological weaponry. We are living in the 21st century, and just as cells in our bodies talk to each other in a disciplined and orderly fashion to keep us alive and operational, when cell-cell communication is threatened, adverse consequences ensue in the form of disease. Similarly, although the revolution in information technology has allowed instant communication meant to bring peoples and cultures together, it is also turning into a powerful and virulent stage for debauchery, hatred and extremism with a direct link to terrorism and violence threatening the sanity of this world.
Every sound mind would admit that you cannot have peace and security in this turbulent world when there is no justice. Rather than punishing evil, the leaders of the world have instead rewarded and made pacts with them. Take for example, the arch-terrorist, Yasser Arafat, the instigator of terrorist plane hijackings and suicide bombers which have claimed thousands of lives. Not only the then Clinton administration elevated this terrorist to some type of international statesman, he was even awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, a mark of disgrace and embarrassment to the Nobel Committee. And recently, an invitation by the U.N. was extended to the Holocaust denier and dangerous tyrant, President Ahmadinejad to deliver from the UN podium a hateful and inciteful diatribe replete with lies to the world.
Presently, President Barack Hussein Obama is apologizing to the Islamic world and dictatorships for any wrongdoing that the Bush administration had done during his administration in the aftermath of the 9/11 massacre. He is also bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia in spite of its serial human right abuses especially as it pertains to women and the fact that 15 of the 19 terrorists who killed over 3,000 civilians in the U.S. originated from this country. Obama has also been looking for love in the wrong places such as offering very friendly gestures to dictators and autocrats such as Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and the Ayatollahs of Iran.
Let’s not forget the tremendous amount of money that the Obama administration is also ready to award to terrorist entities such as the Palestinian authority and Hamas, including the U.S. training provided to members of the PA’s Force 17 which has been implicated by Israel in Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist activities. And as I mentioned previously, lessons have not been learned and blunders continue to be committed and repeated to the detriment of Israel and the world.
By turning the other cheek to evildoers, justice will not prevail and is rather sending the wrong message to those committed to our annihilation; in fact, the continuous lack of wisdom and courage from our present leaders will strengthen and encourage those bad apples to wreck havoc to our societies and civilization, especially at these times when nuclear proliferation and chemical and biological weaponry ominously portend the greatest danger to our safety and peace in the world.
