KSA is Ready for Liberalization but not Democratization

Democratization is highly problematic in the Muslim world due to the popularity of Islamist movements. What is the point of democratizing and holding elections if this leads to Islamist totalitarians coming to power? Yet, democracy has proven possible to varying degrees in some Muslim nations. Saudi Arabia is the most conservative country in the MuslimContinue reading “KSA is Ready for Liberalization but not Democratization”

Northern Peace Will Come at a Heavy Cost

Iranian officials state over and over again that Israel will be destroyed if Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program. They literally mean what they say. What this means is that the entire Iranian axis (primarily Hezbollah) will engage in a frontal assault against Israel with projectiles, including ones with chemical warheads. (Iranian use ofContinue reading “Northern Peace Will Come at a Heavy Cost”

A Leopard doesn’t Change its Spots

The new decree by the Taliban regime i Kabul that women must once more wear the burqa was expected and illustrates the profoundly reactionary nature of Islamist movements generally and the futility in hoping for so-called “moderates”, “reformists” etc. among Islamists although they can surely be politically pragmatic and engage in political lying. There areContinue reading “A Leopard doesn’t Change its Spots”

The United States Needs Saudi Arabia

The early assessment by the Biden administration that a return to the JCPOA could be taken for granted and that the US did not really need Saudi Arabia as an ally has been disproven by subsequent events. Iran is more aggressive than ever and Ali Khamenei is apparently grooming the arch-extremist president Ebrahim Raisi asContinue reading “The United States Needs Saudi Arabia”

It’s Anti-Semitism Stupid!

What is the problem with Iran? Is it Islam? No, there are dozens of sovereign Muslim nations that are responsible members of the international community. Is it totalitarianism? Well, totalitarianism does not in of itself necessarily make a country externally aggressive. Is it imperialism? No, imperialism is seldom as malign as the Iranian version. TheContinue reading “It’s Anti-Semitism Stupid!”

Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy

Ayatollah Khomeini introduced a governing principle according to which Iranian national interests take precedence over sharia. This may seem surprising for an Islamist theocratic regime but can be observed in Iranian foreign policy for various parts of the world. Iran is completely silent on China’s Han colonization of Xinjiang and totalitarian policies of coerced assimilationContinue reading “Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy”

Europe: Tolerance Ends Where Islamization Begins

Western Europe is to Americans a progressive utopia, it has advanced welfare states, LGBT protections and advanced gender equality. Yet Western Europe suffers from crime-ridden Muslim urban enclaves infested with Islamization and honor culture where European tolerance ends. Jews and LGBTI people cannot live there and Islamization and honor culture is enforced on women andContinue reading “Europe: Tolerance Ends Where Islamization Begins”

Malley will not Change the Khomeinist Weltanschauung

The current academic paradigm in Middle Eastern studies assumes that dialogue and cooperation with Islamists is feasible, practical, realistic and desirable, in other words is appeasement of totalitarians the predominant theory of action. The ruling mullahs in Tehran understand well the mindset of useful infidels like Rob Malley and how to diplomatically exploit it. TheContinue reading “Malley will not Change the Khomeinist Weltanschauung”

The Octopus of Terror

Islamist movements generally believe in the existence of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy to destroy Islam. This is an integral part of the Islamist Weltanschauung (comprehensive worldview). It should be kept in mind that Islamists actually seek global control and Islamist world rule and therefore the Anti-Semitic notion that the Jews have a similar ambition doesContinue reading “The Octopus of Terror”

The US is Resigned to Coming Iranian WMD Attacks

The Biden administration’s decision to blame the former Trump administration for the impending collapse of the Vienna talks is indicative of a sense of resignation in the US administration over the prospects of Iranian WMD terrorist attacks against the American homeland. This is understandable, Iranian chemical and potentially biological weapons terrorist attacks against major AmericanContinue reading “The US is Resigned to Coming Iranian WMD Attacks”

Apocalyptic Iran

Iran’s main designated adversaries are the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The notion of the United States as an implacable enemy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is based on Islamist Anti-Semitic conspiracy theory according to which the US is the center of the “Jewish conspiracy” to destroy Islam. The notion of Jews andContinue reading “Apocalyptic Iran”

Imperialism is the Greatest Threat

Totalitarian enemies of America whether Communist or Islamist typically describe democratic America as “imperialist”. Of course there is no American empire. America does not dominate other independent nations, like almost every other nation it aligns with foreign nations to promote its own interests. What is unique however about America is that it constantly across presidentialContinue reading “Imperialism is the Greatest Threat”

Israel Underestimates Iranian Threat

Israel has a track record of underestimating the nefariousness of Iran’s intentions. Israeli intelligence until recently believed that Tehran was interested in a nuclear agreement with the United States. Until recently did senior Israeli military experts believe that Iran would not order Hezbollah to launch a frontal attack against Israeli cities with 150 000 rocketsContinue reading “Israel Underestimates Iranian Threat”

Iran, Syria and Lebanon Face Checkmate with Open Eyes

Israel is preparing to destroy Hezbollah and its state sponsors in the upcoming war in the northern Levant after Israel and America eliminate the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Iran is sabotaging the Vienna process up until the very end. Once the hopeless post-JCPOA “negotiations” as envisioned by the pro-Islamist notorious appeaser Rob Malley end, aContinue reading “Iran, Syria and Lebanon Face Checkmate with Open Eyes”

Iran Intends to Force the World into Submission

Iran has an elaborate plan to force the world into political, ideological, geopolitical, economic and religious submission by means of extortive deployment and use of weapons of mass destruction. Iran is already in the very earliest stage of its campaign.  Iran intends to break out as a superpower already when Israel and the US destroyContinue reading “Iran Intends to Force the World into Submission”

Khomeinists are the Most Dangerous Totalitarians so Far

There have been many dangerous totalitarians in modern history. The Nazis were the most dangerous Fascists and the Khmer Rogue were the most dangerous Communists. However, the Khomeinists are the most dangerous totalitarians so far, not because of what they have done but because of what they intend to do. 1) All existing nuclear weaponsContinue reading “Khomeinists are the Most Dangerous Totalitarians so Far”

Iran’s Chemical Weapons Calculus

Why does Iran intend to attack third countries with chemical weapons following Israel’s destruction of the Iranian nuclear weapons program? First, this is intended as deterrence so that nations will pressure Israel never to attack the Iranian nuclear weapons program again. Second, it is intended to isolate the Jewish state among the nations and diminishContinue reading “Iran’s Chemical Weapons Calculus”

America Faces Apocalypse

The failed policy of the Democratic administration on Iran is a reflection of the desperate situation that America finds itself in vis-a-vis Iran. 1. Once Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program will Iran set off chemical weapons in major cities in dozens of countries around the world that are perceived to be especially connectedContinue reading “America Faces Apocalypse”

Has the World Learned Anything From the Holocaust?

Iran has for years repeated its intention to “annihilate Israel”. Iranian chemical weapons pose a severe threat against major cities in many countries around the world as Iran prepares to attack many nations in response to Iran’s nuclear weapons program being destroyed. America faces the threat of Iranian usage of biological weapons on American soilContinue reading “Has the World Learned Anything From the Holocaust?”

Inside the Mullahs’ Conspiratorial Universe

Most non-Anti-Semites have not tried to imagine what it means to be a conspiratorial Anti-Semite. To be a conspiratorial Anti-Semite means to live in a constant state of fear of the ostensibly omnipotent Jews. Conspiratorial Anti-Semites typically try to explain problems in terms of their worldview, meaning in effect that Jews are behind all problems. Continue reading “Inside the Mullahs’ Conspiratorial Universe”

Appeasement Undermines Deterrence

The appeasement policy of the Democratic administration undermines America’s deterrence posture. Iran is well aware that no Democratic administration will respond with nuclear weapons to Iranian chemical weapons attacks against America and hence is America highly vulnerable to chemical weapons attacks against major American cities. President Trump was not afraid to abrogate the JCPOA sinceContinue reading “Appeasement Undermines Deterrence”

Iran is Dangerous and Irrational

The Raisi administration is officially shutting down the JCPOA by reneging on all “concessions” of the Rouhani administration. The Iranian regime knows that the US is literally desperate to reach a nuclear deal in order to avoid Iranian chemical weapons mass terrorism on a global scale. Iran knows that its WMD extortion works and apparentlyContinue reading “Iran is Dangerous and Irrational”

Why Iran will Continue to Stall

Iran is determined to continue to accelerate its nuclear weapons program and participation in “negotiations” is merely a means of playing for time so as to satisfy Russia and China in order to avoid UN sanctions. Iran already however has more than enough enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb but Iran is not satisfied withContinue reading “Why Iran will Continue to Stall”

Will a Desperate US Surrender to Iran?

“We seem to be very near the bleak choice between War and Shame. My feeling is that we shall choose Shame, and then have War thrown in a little later on even more adverse terms than at present.” Winston Churchill Will the threat of Iranian chemical weapons attacks against the American homeland compel the DemocraticContinue reading “Will a Desperate US Surrender to Iran?”

Empty Threats Undermine America’s Deterrence Posture

The Biden administration’s practice of making more or less veiled threats against Iran, threats which the administration is manifestly not ready to follow through on is not only not credible but is furthermore detrimental since it undermines the US deterrence posture vis-a-vis Iran and enhances the threat of Iranian chemical weapons attacks against major AmericanContinue reading “Empty Threats Undermine America’s Deterrence Posture”

The Muslim Brotherhood is not Pro-Democratic

It is often claimed by academic apologists for totalitarianism that the Muslim Brotherhood is a force for democratization in the Muslim world. However, the experience in Sudan, Turkey and Gaza suggests otherwise as in all three jurisdictions the Muslim Brotherhood established highly oppressive dictatorial rule. An Islamist version of sharia law was instituted as nationalContinue reading “The Muslim Brotherhood is not Pro-Democratic”

A No-Fly Zone Over Iran is Absolutely Necessary

An Israeli series of strikes against the Iranian nuclear weapons program will only set back the Iranian nuclear weapons program one to two years since no one can take away the acquired know-how from the Iranian nuclear scientists. Therefore would it be necessary for Israel to repeat the operation every two years or so. However,Continue reading “A No-Fly Zone Over Iran is Absolutely Necessary”

Naivety About Totalitarianism is Inexcusable

For every wave of totalitarianism there has also been the “useful idiots”, prominent intellectuals who were ready to stand up as apologists for totalitarian regimes and totalitarian movements. Communism probably had more useful idiots than any other form of totalitarianism, yet Nazism also had its share of useful idiots who would e.g. claim that HitlerContinue reading “Naivety About Totalitarianism is Inexcusable”

The Poisonous Politics of Islamophobia

In order for Muslims to be properly integrated into liberal democratic open societies need Muslims participate in public discourse on the same terms as everyone else. This means equality and freedom. This requires fighting Islamophobia so that Muslims feel welcome to participate in public discourse like equal citizens with equal rights. However this is underminedContinue reading “The Poisonous Politics of Islamophobia”

The Syrian Regime is on the Wrong Side of History

The “Alawite” Syrian regime has since many decades a policy of trying to Islamize the Alawite people which practices Alawism, one of seven denominations of core Median Judaism. The ethnically Alawite regime leaders are turncoats, thoroughly secular “Islamizers” who are enemies of their own people. In fact, Alawites are just as brutally oppressed as everyoneContinue reading “The Syrian Regime is on the Wrong Side of History”

Will the Alawites Welcome Israeli Liberation?

Alawites have suffered attempted enforced Islamization since early Islamic conquest in the 7th century CE. The famous medieval Jihadist theologian Ibn Taymiyyah (1263-1328) claimed that the Alawites are “more infidel than the Jews and the Christians”. Alawites suffered terribly during the Ottoman period in French colonial rule coming as liberation for the Alawites. Alawite menContinue reading “Will the Alawites Welcome Israeli Liberation?”

The Destruction of Islam

Islamism [Islam-ism] is one of a series of modern totalitarian political ideologies along with Afwerkism, Ba’athism, Communism, Fascism, Gaddafism, Kahanism, Nazism and Slorcism. Islamism is essentially supersessionist in that it seeks to replace the traditional world religion of Islam which it deems corrupt and depraved. While Islamism may seem similar to Islam on the surfaceContinue reading “The Destruction of Islam”

Office for the Protection of the Constitution

Germany’s “Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution” (BfV) and its state affiliates, one in each of Germany’s federal states are internationally unique but it is in fact a scandal that not every liberal democracy has its own Office for the Protection of the Constitution. The BfV is a domestic intelligence agency tasked withContinue reading “Office for the Protection of the Constitution”

The Nefarious Influence of Islamist Soft Power

Islamist soft power is highly influential in academia where it has become paradigmatic that it is ostensibly intrinsically “Islamophobic” to oppose or even criticize the modern totalitarian political ideology of Islamism. Modern political Islam generally opposes all public criticism of any aspect of what is perceived as “Islam” and it is hard to see howContinue reading “The Nefarious Influence of Islamist Soft Power”

The Fiction of Iranian “Democracy”

The extensive Iranian propaganda machinery abroad has long been able to create an illusion of a semblance of Iranian “democracy” with an ostensible “power struggle” between two types of Islamists dubbed “reformists” and “hardliners”. The question that must be asked however is whether there has been any substantial policy difference when the two respective IslamistContinue reading “The Fiction of Iranian “Democracy””
