A few months ago I wrote a piece here where I urged all Western nations to do what Israel has done to the Gaza strip, and is doing in the West Bank, namely to build a wall between itself and the Islamic/Arab Muslim world. This would be a figurative wall, where no relations, no trade, no ackowledgement of the Islamic world's existence would occur, until the Islamics decide to "grow up", civilize themselves, and end the incitement, teaching of hatred, and radical violence it has pursued against Westerners for almost 100 years. This separation would include no tourism and no immigration to or from the 57 muslim nations.
However, the West would maintain vigilent intelligence on the muslims, and should any of them threaten the West they would be met with severe, aggressive force. This is a policy that should and must be adopted soon, or the West is going to have a Third World War on its hands, probably within 20 years.
The reasons for this suggested policy are numerous, but highlighted in articles such as this one from Down Under:
If the despicable, disgraceful cleric cited in the piece has the large following that I suspect in the islamic world, the liklihood of such a clash will be inevitable. This article highlights everything that is despicable about Islamics like him and his followers, seemingly a majority in the 57 muslim nations. I say this because if you were to poll the people on the street throughout these countries, they would agree with the lies he puts forth, such as the blaming of Jews and the US for the bombings, and for all of the misery in the Muslim world. (Many media outlets already undertook surveys of this nature right after 9/11, and this formed the basis of my earlier piece.)
The lies and propaganda emanating from muslim nations regarding jews and the West is identical to the garbage put forth from the Nazi regime, decrying a "bloodthirsty Stalin" while occupying most of Europe. Or blaming Jews for starting WW2 while they rolled unprovoked into the Sudetenland.
Even more distasteful, here in the US, when major Jewish organizations publicly voiced their support for muslims after 9/11, NOT ONE MUSLIM group has come out with any quid pro quo, to either condemn suicide bombings in Israel or attacks against Jews in Europe or Canada. These major organizations were left with the understanding that muslims only look out for themselves - because THATS ALL THE MUSLIMS CARE ABOUT. They believe that they are the righteous ones, and that all others are vermin to be tolerated, hopefully converted, or exterminated. Osama Bin Laden I remind you, has included in almost all of his public pronouncements "jews and crusaders."
It is now very clear that aggressive action should and MUST be taken by the West to separate themselves from the Islamic world. So long as Muslims continue to act in their belief that they are superior, and the few "moderate" muslims are unable or unwilling (the latter is more likely) to stand up and press the cause of modernity in their governmental institutions, only further violence will continue, such as we saw in Bali and Manila in the last week.
It is imperative that immigration also be ended quickly, as it merely provides a safety valve prolonging the sickness in these countries, where the best/brightest and utter bottom leave - as the best have the money and the poor are gladly released. By the top leaving, it draws out the intellectuals and talented - who could really help improve their countries - and gives the dictatorships a free hand in further repression. And the poor emigrants, who are then thrusted onto a hapless Europe - serve no purpose save to collect welfare and commit felonies, refusing assimilation. France, Denmark and Norway are prime examples of this latter instance. And these poor, given their paucity of skills, have no realistic chance - also abetted by their religious fervor - to ever assimilate and contribute to their new nation. So, all thats left is the vast middle, to suffer under tyrants - perfectly exampled by Iraq and Pakistan.
In closing, I think it higly likely that the West will soon come to see the light of what i am proposing. Australia certainly has, given the mosque firebombings that took place there, which i would say are indicative of the dwindling patience held for terrorism and the islamics. If the isolation doesnt work, clearly aggressive, indiscriminate military strikes against Muslim population centers will be necessary to deter further aggression. The moral high ground is of no interest to me, the Israelis have held it for decades and it has only led to their continued losses of innocent civilian lives, and little or no synpathy from those who should know better - the Europeans. The ultimate truth here is that morality means little to the dead, or for the dead.
