In another excellent essay from Wolfgang Bruno, he ends with the following:
Binyamin Netanyahu has stated that Muslims don't hate the West because of Israel, they hate Israel because of the West. And he's right. If Muslims manage to overrun and subdue the Little Satan, that means that the Great Satan is weaker than he appears. The Great Satan here is usually referring to the USA, but it really is the West in general, and very much includes Europe, the cradle of Western civilization. How would the Danish cartoon issue have looked like if Iran used its nuclear umbrella to "protect Europe's Muslims?" Does anybody in Europe want to find out?
EU claims to superpower status ring rather hollow. When the time comes to face a real challenge, Europe does not have the will, perhaps not even the means, to defeat it. An entire continent is now hiding behind a few million Jews, the descendants of a people we almost decimated, to defeat an enemy we have been feeding for years. The EU isn't a soft superpower, the EU is just soft, and incapable of disarming a threat it has by itself participated in creating. Israel is the Constantinople of our time, and Israelis have been at the front line of the battle against Islamic Fascism for years. Israel should finally be allowed to defend herself. It's time Europe stops laying obstacles in her way.
