Leaving Islam

Yesterday (Oct. 6, 2004) the French carmaker Renault unveiled plans to build its new budget car, the Dacia Logan, in Iran. (2) On the same day Rafsanjani, the ex-President of Islamic Republic and the leading candidate in upcoming presidency elections of the Mullahdom, announced that “Iran's missiles can now hit Europe” (3) and Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Hassan Rowhani said “Iran will not cede to international demands that it suspend all activities related to the enrichment of uranium and the country is prepared for both confrontation or negotiations”. In fact on October 5th, Iran ’s hardliner dominated parliament began pushing for resumption of uranium enrichment. (4)  And in the middle of all this a German trader is suspected of selling nuclear secrets to Iran. (5)  

Whether the Europeans are asleep or pretend to be asleep is unclear. But the fact is that America cannot fall asleep in this crucial time when history is in the making and the destiny of Mankind is at stake.

It seems that Senator Kerry is trying to adopt a more European approach vis-à-vis Islamic Terrorism. And like the Europeans, he seems also to want to win the favor of the rogue countries that support and even promote terrorism by appeasing them. 

In a bid to “bribe” the Mullahs and perhaps to improve the relations between the two countries Sen. Kerry suggested supplying the Islamic state with nuclear fuel for power reactors if Tehran agrees to give up its own fuel-making capability. The offer was of course rejected (6) But this makes it clear that Sen. Kerry desires to "reach out" and tie the broken knots with the Islamic Republic, which means more power to Islamic Terrorism worldwide. 

Sen. Kerry wants to please everybody. But we had another appeaser during 1930s in England. His name was Chamberlain and his policies of appeasement allowed Hitler to gain strength. Shouldn't we learn our lessons from history? Today Islam is more danger to the world than Nazism was 70 years ago. I don't think "reaching out to Muslims" is a right policy. I think we should stand tough against Islam and its terrorism. Muslims interpret "reaching out" as the sign of weakness and this encourages them to continue with their quest to conquer the world. 

The truth is that Iran's missile program poses a serious threat to not just Europe but the entire Middle East and US interests, which is compounded significantly by Iran’s relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. (7)

Senator Kerry plans to fight terrorism defensively. The problem is that no amount of defensive measures can eliminate the risk of being hit again. President Bush favors preemptive war, or in other words he wants to fight this war in the backyard of those who started it, instead of fighting it in the cities of the United States. Whether he will succeed or not remains to be seen. But the fact is that no war has ever been won by fighting defensively. So, although there is no guarantee that the President’s plan will succeed, the failure of Sen. Kerry’s plan in fighting terrorism defensively is foregone.

As one friend put it, "you cannot just sit with a swatter waiting to hit the mosquitoes that come into your house. You have to drain the swamp where the mosquitoes breed".

The real battle against Islamic Terror is the ideological battle and this is not even being fought yet. To destroy Islamic Terrorism we must destroy the ideology behind it. Neither one of the candidates addressed this crucial point. Although the President mentioned once “the ideology” of the terrorists, he fell short of saying what he intends to do about it.

There is a saying, "Tell me who is your friend and I will tell you who you are". One interesting way to learn which side each of the two candidates stand is to look at their friends and see who supports them.

Yesterday, the Arab-American Political Action Committee in Dearborn announced their endorsement for the Sen. John Kerry-Sen. John Edwards ticket in the 2004 presidential election.

"We believe Senator Kerry will make America stronger, safer and more respected throughout the world," said AAPAC president Abed Hammoud in a written statement. (8)


Since when, the Arabs became so interested in the strength and safety of America? Last I remember, they were dancing in the streets after watching 3000 Americans die in 9/11.

But that is not all. Among Sen. Kerry's top fundraisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Most prominent among them is Hassan Nemazee, 54, an investment banker based in New York. Nominated to become U.S. ambassador to Argentina by President Bill Clinton in 1999, Nemazee eventually withdrew his nomination after a former partner raised allegations of business improprieties.

Nemazee was a major Clinton donor, giving $80,000 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) during the 1996 election cycle and attending at least one of the famous White House fund-raising coffees.

In 2001, at the invitation of Mobil Oil Chairman Lucio Noto, whom he counts as a "personal friend," Nemazee joined the board of the American-Iranian Council (AIC), a U.S. lobbying group that consistently has supported lifting U.S. sanctions on Iran and accommodating the Tehran regime. Nemazee told Timmerman of Insight magazine he "now regrets" having joined the AIC board and resigned his position after 12 months when he was vilified by Iranian exile groups. (9)

Another Iranian fundraiser in Sen. Kerry’s campaign is Susan Akbarpour who was a journalist in Iran, where she was close to Faezeh Hashemi, the daughter of former president Ali Akbar Rafsanjani, the man who said in a nuclear confrontation Israel will be totally destroyed while Muslims will only suffer casualties. She made programs attacking the Iranian dissidents abroad and their anti regime activities

In an Interview with Kenneth Timmerman Akbarpour boasted: "I am an actor in U.S. politics. I am a fund-raiser for all candidates who listen to us and our concerns." (9)

My congratulations to Americans for having an actress from the Islamic Republic of Iran, the same country that called America the "Great Satan" and took their embassy workers as hostage for 444 days, that masterminded the bombing of Israeli consulate in Argentine and killed 241 U.S. Marines in a terrorist attack near Beirut airport in 1983, now starring in their political theater! This must be nominated for the most hilarious show award.    

Akbarpour is not even a U.S. citizen. She came to America in 1997 as a tourist and remained as an illegal immigrant until last year when she married to another Islamist Iranian-American and now she is a green card holder and an "actor in U.S. politics".

One thing we can be sure of is that the Islamists are no friends of America. They certainly have no desire to see America become strong or safe. They are the enemies of America. It seems that the enemies of America have chosen their candidate. Now we have to wait and see who the American voters will choose as their next president.
