Scared German speaks to America

This heah is a op-ed in a major German newspaper. Ain't nuthin' Aunty needs to add.




EUROPE - THY NAME IS COWARDICE


(Commentary by Mathias Dapfner CEO, Axel Springer, AG)



A few days ago Henry Broder wrote in Welt am Sonntag, "Europe - your family name is appeasement." It's a phrase you can't get out of your head because it's so terribly true. Appeasement cost millions of Jews and non-Jews their lives, as England and France, allies at the time, negotiated and hesitated too long before they noticed that Hitler had to be fought, not bound to toothless agreements.

Appeasement legitimized and stabilized Communism in the Soviet Union, then East Germany, then all the rest of Eastern Europe, where for decades, inhuman suppressive, murderous governments were glorified as the ideologically correct alternative to all other possibilities.

Appeasement crippled Europe when genocide ran rampant in Kosovo, and even though we had absolute proof of ongoing mass-murder, we Europeans debated and debated and debated, and were still debating when finally the Americans had to come from halfway around the world, into Europe yet again, and do our work for us.

Rather than protecting democracy in the Middle East, European Appeasement, camouflaged behind the fuzzy word "equidistance," now countenances suicide bombings in Israel by fundamentalist Palestinians.

Appeasement generates a mentality that allows Europe to ignore nearly 500,000 victims of Saddam's torture and murder machinery and, motivated by the self-righteousness of the peace movement, has the gall to issue bad grades to George Bush . Even as it is uncovered that the loudest critics of the American action in Iraq made illicit billions, no, TENS of billions, in the corrupt UN. Oil-for-Food program.

And now we are faced with a particularly grotesque form of appeasement. How is Germany reacting to the escalating violence by Islamic Fundamentalists in Holland and elsewhere? By suggesting that we really should have a "Muslim Holiday" in Germany?



I wish I were joking, but I am not. A substantial fraction of our (German) Government, and if the polls are to be believed, the German people, actually believe that creating an Official State "Muslim Holiday" will somehow spare us from the wrath of the fanatical Islamists. One cannot help but recall Britain's Neville Chamberlain waving the laughable treaty signed by Adolph Hitler and declaring European "Peace in our time".

What else has to happen before the European public and its political leadership get it? There is a sort of crusade underway, an especially perfidious crusade consisting of systematic attacks by fanatic Muslims, focused on civilians, directed against our free, open Western societies, and intent upon Western Civilization's utter destruction.

It is a conflict that will most likely last longer than any of the great military conflicts of the last century - a conflict conducted by an enemy that cannot be tamed by "tolerance" and "accommodation" but is actually spurred on by such gestures, which have proven to be, and will always be taken by the Islamists for signs of weakness. Only two recent American Presidents had the courage needed for Anti-appeasement: Reagan and Bush.

His American critics may quibble over the details, but we Europeans know the truth. We saw it first hand: Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War, freeing half of the German people from nearly 50 years of terror and virtual slavery. And Bush, supported only by the Social Democrat Blair, acting on moral conviction, recognized the danger in the Islamic War against Democracy. His place in history will have to be evaluated after a number of years have passed.

In the meantime, Europe sits back with charismatic self-confidence in the multicultural corner, instead of defending liberal society's values and being an attractive center of power on the same playing field as the true great powers, America and China.

On the contrary - we Europeans present ourselves, in contrast to those "arrogant Americans", as the World Champions of "tolerance", which even (Germany's Interior Minister) Otto Schily justifiably criticizes.

Why? Because we're so moral? I fear it's more because we're so materialistic, so devoid of a moral compass.

For his policies, Bush risks the fall of the dollar, huge amounts of additional national debt, and a massive and persistent burden on the American economy - because unlike almost all of Europe, Bush realizes what is at stake - literally everything.

While we criticize the "capitalistic robber barons" of America because they seem too sure of their priorities, we timidly defend our Social Welfare systems. Stay out of it! It could get expensive! We'd rather discuss reducing our 35-hour workweek or our dental coverage, or our 4 weeks of paid vacation ... Or listen to TV pastors preach about the need to "reach out to terrorists. To understand and forgive".

These days, Europe reminds me of an old woman who, with shaking hands, frantically hides her last pieces of jewelry when she notices a robber breaking into a neighbor's house.

Appeasement?

Europe, thy name is Cowardice.
---God Bless America---

Yep.

Isn't it really,really great to hear Germans beginning to express agressive, intolerant expansionist ideology again?

And to find Americans, or at least ultra right wing pseudochristian ones, identifying with it!

Right on Aunty Belle, or shall I call you Adolf?

Stogie said...

Arlair, the article does not speak of any aggressive, intolerant ideology so your comments are irrelevant and meaningless.

What the article speaks of is the survival of Western values, namely our pluralistic, tolerant and liberal democracies, which are targeted for destruction by militant Islam. Do you have a great desire to be a Muslim and live under Sharia law? Because it is that or death or slavery as a "dhimmi" that are the only options allowed by Islam.

Have you ever read a single book on Islam? Do you even remotely understand its threat? Or are you just satisfied to blubber silly Leftist slogans with no foundation in fact?

You call Aunty Bell "Adolph," but I call you DUNCE.

Ayman al-Zawahri quote of the week:

“It is a jihad for the sake of God and will last until our religion prevails ... from Spain to Iraq,”

“We will attack everywhere.”

Spain was controlled by Arab Muslims for more than seven centuries until they were driven from power in 1492.

He said Arab regimes were accomplices to Israel. “My fellow Muslims, it is obvious that Arab and Islamic governments are not only impotent but also complicit ... and you are alone on the battlefield. Rely on God and fight your enemies ... make yourselves martyrs.”

He also called for the “downtrodden” throughout the world, not just Muslims, to join the battle against “tyrannical Western civilization and its leader, America.”

no further comment needed.

Aunty Belle said...

Ah, Ardlair...tsk, hyperbole doan suit ya'

Stogie, AUnty shure appreciates yore gallantry. Thanky. I see on yore own pages 'bout the muslim murderer in Seattle--goes to Jewish club and opens fire on old ladies...a regligion of peace , huh? The thang that disturbs me most is how that story ain't seein' much play in the MSM...MSM fears turning the US into a nations of one mind, a consensuss on erradicatin' islam.

Folks, Aunty gonna tell ya true--I been in Spain a fair number of times and those folks suffered horrors too great to catalog here--does we want that? Thas' what appeasemnt (see post ) buys fer yore nation.

Hey Pup, thank fer them quotes--what else need be said? Why ya reckon ole' Ardy cain't be man enough ter take al-Zawahri at his word--dod Ardylair think he knows more or better'n them Muslims theyselves??

D. T. Devareaux said...

Isn't it really,really great to hear Germans beginning to express agressive, intolerant expansionist ideology again?

Fascinating. So there really is something intrinisicly fascist about the "German" psyche? Fascinating, but confusing--my liberal educatators told me the source of German gnarliness was that rotten old Treaty of Versaille; hurt feelings again, that sort of thing.

Interesting how Herr Ardlair conveniently (or perhaps out of stupidity, I dunno) ignores another group, one that has been practicing an "agressive, intolerant expansionist ideology" since it's inception 1400 years ago. I think they're mentioned in that article too. Sounds to me like someone has Germanophobia.

I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi with a high and canvas covered load
"If you're going to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride."
So I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land."

(Chorus)
I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Across the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere.

I've been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow,
Sarasota, Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma, Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo, Tocopilla, Barranquilla, and Padilla,
I'm a killer.

(Chorus)
I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Across the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man

Aunty Belle said...

DT I'se pleased as punch ter see ya', puddin'. Doan mind Ardlair too much, he jes' doan know how ter define his self 'cept as contrary ter reality. As ya noted, they's another intolerant expansionist ideology under discussion, but he done skipped right past the real topic to the one topic he likes best--hatin' America.

Course, now, Ardlair, Aunty Belle knows why ya done this....iffin' youse European, youse Appeasment Euro...fearin' them scimitars honey? Doan worry too much, you ain't the only knee knocker out theah.

But it won't save ya...did ja' listen to hez-bowl-ah--they'se seeking to resotorwe the caliphate....an' ain't heard too much from "moderate" muslims that seek ter rein in thises "radicals"....an' why would they??

Why, chile' iffin' ya can get fruit and nuts ter do ya slaughter fer ya, and make the West buckle under fear, why not nurse dreams of yore old califate...would that qualify, Ardlair, fer "expansionist"?

velvet acid tongue said...

ok. i had to stop reading this ridiculous dribble when at the point where it gives reagan credit for ending the cold war. that's just a myth! perhaps he was instrumental. but ... many many people fought for the collapse of the USSR.

remember lech walesa? the masses of protesters in czechoslovakia? east germany? is anyone really stupid enuf to believe ronny reagan has ANYTHING at all to do with that? oh pullleese ... get real!

and bush .... he's got his head so far stuck up his ass he's prolapsing himself! good grief! take your blinders off.

oh yeah .. and while we are on the topic of appeasement ... lets talk about how the the American gov't continually appeases israel by allowing them to engage in terrorism. they have had a free hand in systematically destroying the palestinian people. and american just sits idly by, clapping hands all the while.


oh - stogie and devareaux... do you have it in you to disagree with other WITHOUT the peurile insults? i'd say its quite ironic that you express such intolerant behaviour toward someone with whom you disagree. how telling, indeed. IT WOULD SUER BE NICE IF WE COULD DISAGREE WITH EACH OTHER WITHOUT THE INSULTS!

islam is but one religion. among many. yes, i have read on islam. i have been to the middle east. i have met muslim people. TALKED TO THEM. eaten their food. walked their streets. i HAVE been there. have any of you? who label it so negatively?

perhaps we could say the same of christianity ... they are all a bunch of undersexed perverts that go after children. but ... you would say that's a generalization, would you not? and you would be correct.

as far as i'm concerned ALL religion is just an another type of politics. another way to subjugate people and grab power. and total BS. and religion has NO business in the operation of government. EVER. ANYWHERE. that applies to islam, judaism, christianity.

and that's all i got to say about that.

velvet acid tongue said...

“tyrannical Western civilization and its leader, America.”

think of it from the other perspective. the west, as represented by dubya and blair ... does seem tyrannical and hypocritical.

Aunty Belle said...

Velvey, looky honey, Aunty Belle is part Lebanese--I done said this many times--so YES, sugar, I talked with many Middle Eaterners, further, I've traveled to the Middle East AND mah own work includes professional collaboration with Muslims..

here is an true event to illustraste mah point:

After a week at UN where Aunty Belle worked with various international diplomats, cordially with shared objectives, working side by side, a small group "celebrate" after a key session with cappucino, where upon a muslim man admits that "We" managed a great feat...andn then reached across the table to grab a Aunty Belle's crucifix and said, "We are friends here, but if you come to my country I'd kill you for wearing this."

Now Velvey, whatever else you think on the matter of Islam and the war, I know you are a fair woman. This experience, plus mah own travels plus mah heritage do accord Aunty some insight more up close and realistic than most bloggers heah about...


This is what I'm askin' all ya'll who don't ever fault islam for its obvious hatred and despicable acts---these acts are not committed by "fanatics" they are committed by regular muslims and approved by "moderate" muslims. More important is that this is the historical methodology of Islam. Before there was a USA or and ISrael Isllam was a terror culture/religion. It has never been peaceful.

So why does we have Western /leftists apologists fer islam and the hesbowlah oor hamas or al-queda??


here is why ---becuase you folks cain't control islam.

But ya think ya can control the US by yellin' and screechin' about Bush (or whoever sits in the OO) and that gives ya some hope to change the international scence--but sweet potato, no foolin', if the US pulled out of every place on earth other than its own borders, stopped all aid and tech to ANY other nation, ISlam will still come fer ya'---see they have the IMEPRATIVE to conquer the world for ALlah--so iffin' the USA became fanatical isolationists, it won't protect ya from ISlam
--they's comin' fer ya. You cain't
save yoresellf by hatin' Ammerica or Bush or Christians or religion...

see, them Muslims despise yore type, the anti-religious, "liberated" womman. In their book, that type of woman is promiscuous and heretical.

At some point, ya gotta quit pointin' at USA and deal wif Islam...read what Islam says--why you doan believe 'em?

VATTY,


oh - stogie and devareaux... do you have it in you to disagree with other WITHOUT the peurile insults?


There are those spitballs again. Which "insults" were puerile? Which comments were "insulting"?

So Ardlair says, "Isn't it really,really great to hear Germans beginning to express agressive, intolerant expansionist ideology again," to which I reply, "Interesting how Herr Ardlair conveniently (or perhaps out of stupidity, I dunno) ignores another group, one that has been practicing an "agressive, intolerant expansionist ideology" since it's inception 1400 years ago. I think they're mentioned in that article too. Sounds to me like someone has Germanophobia," and I'm the insulting one? My comments are puerile because *I* point out someone else's idiocy? Why do you find the truth insulting? I 'm merely pointing out the hypocrisy and selective stupidity of someone else's "argument"; perhaps you find it insulting because it undermines your own personal biases (e.g. Israel is a terrorist state.)

eaten their food. walked their streets.

The Romanovs and Hapsburgs had great operas. H.G. Welles has a personal audience with Stalin; whom he concluded was a kind and decent man....oh, am I being insulting again?!

i HAVE been there. have any of you? who label it so negatively?

How many Israeli commuter buses have you been on--after they've been blown to pieces? Ever sleep in a marine barracks in Beirut that was blown to pieces? Every attend a Fakeistinian Death Camp? There go those insults again...

perhaps we could say the same of christianity ... they are all a bunch of undersexed perverts that go after children. but ... you would say that's a generalization, would you not? and you would be correct.

I don't recall a "tiny minority" of Christians hijacking planes and cutting off heads of aid workers, contractors and civilians, do you? I don't recall a Christian Theocracy in the Middle East threatening to wipe another country off the map, do you? I didn't see Christians threaten the whole of Europe with new 9/11s or burn down embassies because Kanye West posed as Jesus on the cover of Rolling Stone; or because Serrano put a crucifix in urine; or because Jesus pooped on George Bush on South Park, do you???? IIIIIIIINSULLLLTING!

D. T. Devareaux said...

What size burqa do you take. Just wondering, seeing as you care about the perspective of people who'd like to slice you up into little ribbons. Hey, can't argue with 'em, join 'em. Insulting!

Aunty Belle said...

WHoa! Lawdy chillens' but we's heatin' up round heah....

DT, this high octane post will shur bring aound that Rev X that gets by to Revenge onc't in while. But I cain't find no flaw in yore points.

Velvey, think of how we's being' manipulated---here is a good analysis from the outer blog world:

"...the cynical attempt by a weak and cowardly cadre of killers to manipulate my compassion gland that is just as base and unrelenting as the attempts of pornographers across the internet to manipulate my lust. The main difference being that the Terrorists are getting better at their game and you don't have to swear you're 18 to see their creations. Most major media outlets around the world are only to happy to beam them into your brain 24/7.

If you aren't sure exactly who has the moral high ground in the current struggle in Lebanon, you might reflect that while it is possible to see a grown man on the Lebanese side of the struggle dangle a shredded child by an ankle for the world's cameras, you don't ever see that sort of thing at an Israeli funeral, do you?

And while you might be feeling very, very bad for the dead and dangled child, you might also ask yourself where the pictures of all the dead Hezbollah and Hamas warriors are? Don't see many of those, do you?

Or perhaps you do, if you ask yourself what sort of man could hold up a dead child by the ankle to be photographed. Or what sort of man could seek out and take the picture and make sure it got out to the ever accommodating Associated Press? "

Yes - Good Sir George in fact is my hero. He is a very brave man, and wise - like me!

I give him a 100% approval rating and can't wait to see democracy flourishing in Iraq and Lebanon. People think it's civil war and a bombed out infrastructure with nearly a million people "displaced!"

BS! I say it's American democracy alive and well and being manfully and bravely exported. This administration just shares my own "in your face" attitude and has the wisdom to see that people who don't like America or Israel's balanced, sane, and just policies are pure evil. They hate good things and truth and they love death and misery and unhappiness, and I know this because President Bush has told us all about it. They are "evildoers" - this is the correct term. Poverty, oppression, injustice - this is all myth. The Palestinians and Lebanese are damn lucky we let them live at all, and the average Iraqi who was never involved in politics, with three hours of electricity on a good day and crime and death in the streets should THANK GOD and especially George Bush and his administration for getting rid of most electricity, public safety, but also a dictator. So it was a bargain for them and they just don't realize it.

They're all crazy except us!

Forsooth! Percy, puddin', doth thou wallow yet in yon sarcastic mire, whence cometh a legion of lame ligamented liberals?

Nay, confus/ed knight, comfort thy heart and lift thy chin, 'tis not as thou thinkest, plainly seen.

For descend yore mountain, good sir, to looky whar the sun riseth to the east, is it not still so? An' day follows day, yet again, nigh the night's close, another circuit the yellowy orb doth go.

Jes' so, puddin'pie, will sons of Ishmael rise in that anger nurse/ed long millenina afore hapless George
of note rode, by chance unknowing, along that ragged edge of history where Isaac encamp/ed.

For Ishamael hath smite his brother in hate; as ere the sun doth rise, year follows year and centuries close to open new, and again the Saracen's fury is unleash/ed--t'was written so by yon poet prized:

"The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold,
And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;
And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea,
When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee."

Nay, say not new is yonder strife that heal/ed t'were if Uncle's life
and lucre be not spilled
o'er dunes of oil,his steeds of iron to fill.

Percy, lift thy visor and look beyond thy nose,
twist not knightly knickers and silken hose
to knots benamed for George or Condi
but Think ye! and hearest
thou Abdel Rantisi

For lo! Percvial, Harken now to wisdom's warning:
a thousand years are moorish masters the hunger of yon babes spurning

While filling calipahte bellies sashed in gold,
their lips dripp/ed pomegrante crimson, yet cold
hearts feasted on pistachioed sweets
rare tasted by sand dwelling beggars
who offered for Master's turban a peacock feather,
that beggar's child death one night more may cheat.

Nay, confused knight, forget not the potentate's oil riches,
His villas and planes and satin Vercace britches

T'was luxuious living had he 'twixt booze and lust,
yet spared he not for moaning hunger a trifling scrap, a moldy crust

N'er a riyal nor halala coin for Jeddah's poor,
their plight and pain drowned in yon
pusillanimous sewer

Yet plot and scheme did Ali's tribe
in councils gathered far and wide
beards they stroke/ed and in calm despise
did Mohammed's holy point to western skies
"There is yore enemy, Habib, looketh not to us,
onto those foul men hurl yore enrag/ed disgust"

"Think ye not that our Caliphates,"
quoth bloated goatish potentates,
"are to blame for all yore trials,
See instead the horrid infidel!
His coarse and vulgar styles
His jean assed daughters, defiant wives and sons of liberty, by these are muslims piggishly defiled."

Die you must, sand dweller,forsooth!
Mohammed commands our land be pure,
Dream of virgins,on earth denied you
blood of martyrs is Mohammeds cure


Ah Sir Percy, do you still not see,
that even t'were Israel thown into the roiling sea, Lo!
The faces of Fatima yet upturned in hunger would be,
her nubile limbs bartered fer nought,no sou,nor fig, a tidbit for Mustapha's tea.


Should she resist, plead her case
for freedom instead,
ah, Percy, sickened art thou when in yon arena, they sever her veil'ed head

Though Israel perish in bloody wails and Uncle bullied, did withdraw,
Yet ne'r will the Arab dunescape be as quite Sir Percival saw

For true and honest men understand this well,
After a thousand years and some, hist'ry reveal/ed Islam
a cruel, despicable hell.


And vassals all, be thou and me,
to Mohamend's brigands when Jews in Canaan there'd no more be.

Deserved so, Sir Percy, deserved so, for when men's disdain what their fathers sav/ed
with every pain and death, though honorably behav/ed,
toward that enemy that would
NOT desist
from rape and pillage and theft-filled fists

Then unworthy we be, Percy mine, to live and love under the light of liberty's shine

Percival said...

No no, I really agree wholeheartedly. Arabs must be genetically flawed and Islam is a religion of pure hate even though by coincidence it historically springs from Judaism and Christianity and scholars who've studied the Quran see such striking similarities with the Bible that they know Mohammed was directly inspired by it.

Yes, the Quran, if you actually read it, is just filled with hate - about as much as the Bible. That's how come when I lived in a neighborhood with lots of Muslims I was constantly being attacked and getting stuff thrown at me. The veiled women were especially dangerous, and their kids kept kicking me. American kids, by contrast, were models of peacefulness, respectfulness for their elders, and nonviolence.

Plus, you raise a great point: you can always tell the inate character of a people by what they're doing during any particular period in history. That's why we know, for example, that the Chinese used to be smarter than everybody else but then lost a few marbles and got dumber than Europeans. Because for thousands of years, when blacks and whites were still hunters and gatherers, the Chinese had a huge civilization with writing, trade, great art and architecture etc. But then they just got stupid and Europe and then America overtook them. But now they're starting to get smart again.

And blacks and Native Americans are obviously the stupidest people because they weren't smart enough to start industrial revolutions and lived on the land longer.

Stuff like civilization, long periods of peace, or war, or technology, or not thinking up technology, have nothing to do with factors that are too complicated for us to figure out just how they interact - stuff, say, like geography, terrain, abundance of water, randomness - the "butterfly effect" that even makes it impossible to make accurate long range weather forecasts.

All of that's irrelevant. When it comes to people, I say it's Us vs. them, and Amen and God bless us and send them to hell. I say judge religions, nations, ethnicities and genders by their position at any given period in history - or for that matter, just by what they're extremists are doing. Yeah, that's the most reasonable approach.

Percival said...that the Chinese used to be smarter than everybody else but then lost a few marbles and got dumber than Europeans.

Chinese dumb? You are one delusional person percy,The Chinese walled thier country off from the world for centuries building infrastructure and waiting for the opertune time to emerge as the Dragon of Destiny

The rest of the world evolved and became one with technology and science at the cost of 100's of billions of dollars and a 100 years of trial and error.

In the 1970's the Dragon emerges to the world when technology and science are at the forefront in western civilization.

Over the next 36 years it spies and steals science and technology that bankrupt Russia and Made America the greatest Nation on Earth at the cost of untold Billions.

Year 2006 a mere 35 years the Dragon has awaken to its full glory from the sweat and blood of the rest of the world.

Chinese dumb? I think not....

Aunty Belle said...

Hail-Pig!!! Darlin' shoat, whar have ya been??? I done worried about ya till I pestered a few others about ya...

Well, ain't it the truth--'bout China--was jes' sayin over at K9s that China is ignored by all these feckless
foaming bloggers. I'm weary wif' em.

Percival needs a name change--a blight on knighthood.

Oh, I'se relieved to see ya, Hail-Pig...ya rode up jes' in time, too.

Percival said...

Hellpig - My whole comment was sarcastic. Of course the Chinese aren't dumb. Not any more than Muslims are viscious moral imbeciles. Neither is true.
