Deism versus Islam
The coming war with Islam
by Solly Ganor
Five years ago, I had a conversation with a young Palestinian
student who in short precise terms explained how Islam will defeat the
West. The conversation opened my eyes to a much larger picture in
which Israel plays only a minor role in the Islamic game of conquest.
Since then I tried to speak to some Arabs who come to pray at the
Mosque, but they were not as outspoken as the student.
Last week, I had another conversation with an Israeli Arab
construction boss by the unlikely name of Francis who was in charge of
building a villa near our house in Herzelia. He told me that his
family was Christian, and his name was given to him in honor of the
Our conversation was as interesting as the first
conversation I had with the Arab student five years ago and I would
like to share it with you. Francis frequently parked his car near our
house and we would exchange polite greetings.
About a week ago, the water was shut off for repairs in the house
he was building, and Francis asked me if I could give him some hot
water for his coffee. He was a tall man of about forty, with reddish
hair and blue eyes. He spoke a perfect Hebrew, and I naturally became
curious about him. I felt that he may be the right person to exchange
some views with. By his looks, I assumed that he was either a Druze or
from the Syrian region.
He looked more like a teacher than a
construction worker and, as I later found out, he was actually a
teacher by profession. Since my conversation with the student five
years ago, I was always curious to hear their side of the story;
therefore, I decided to invite him for a cup of coffee to our house. I
saw him hesitate for a moment; then he smiled and thanked me for my
While we drank our coffee, he told me that he was from a small
village in the Galilee called Jish, near the present Kibbutz Sassa. I
remembered the village very well as I was one of the soldiers who
captured the village while serving in the 7th Armored brigade during
the War of Independence in 1948.
I decided not to tell him about it
because at the time we encountered some stiff resistance at that
village and quite a few of the inhabitants were killed.
He went on to tell me a little about himself. "For a while I was a
teacher and I loved teaching, but I couldn't make a living at it and I
decided to join my father in law who is in the construction business."
Judging by the large Honda he was driving, I figured that he didn't do
too badly changing his profession.
Our conversation soon turned to the present situation in the Middle
East, about Hamas winning the elections, the situation of the Israeli
Arabs, and the last Lebanese war against Hezbollah. "As Christians we
are in a difficult situation here in Israel. Unfortunately, the
Moslems and especially the extreme Islamist section, are giving the
My family who lived in Bethlehem probably since the
Crusaders, had to flee for their life. The Moslems have been forcing
us out, by threats and even murder. Bethlehem that was once
predominantly Christian is now predominantly Moslem. Very little is
written about it even in the Israeli press."
He sipped his coffee and gave me a long look. He seemed like
someone who wasn't quite sure whether to say what he was about to say.
I gave him an encouraging nod.
"I have to tell you something which very few of you seem to
comprehend." He continued, "Your bungling war against a few thousand
Hezbollah fighters which you should have crushed no matter what,
considering the importance of the outcome, has created a completely
new situation, not only for this area, but globally. Your inept
leadership totally misunderstood the importance of winning this war."
"As a matter of fact, the whole Moslem world, not only the Arabs,
simply couldn't believe that the mighty Israeli Army that defeated the
combined Arab forces in six days in 1967, and almost captured Cairo
and Damascus in 1973, couldn't defeat a small army of Hezbollah men.
As usual the Moslems see things the way they want to see things. Most
think that the present generation of Israelis have gone soft and can
"The American bungling of the war in Iraq only added to their
conviction that victory not only over Israel but also over the West is
not only possible, but certain. The ramifications of these two
bungling wars may bring an Islamic bloody Tsunami all over the West,
not only in Israel.
The sharks smell blood and these two wars gave
them the green light to attack sooner than they had in mind. Your
problem is that you are on the defensive and they have the option to
choose the time and the places when and where to attack and there is
nothing much you can do about it.
When will you Westerners realize
that half measures don't work with people who are willing to die by
the thousands for Allah to achieve their goal? In their eyes the
Western World is simply an abomination on earth that has to be wiped
He spoke quietly and I could just picture him in the school giving
his students a lecture. I poured him another cup of coffee and
encouraged him to continue.
"The Americans, the Europeans, and even you Israelis really don't
know what it is all about, do you? During the last generation hundreds
of thousands of children have been taught all over the Moslem world in
Madrass schools to become martyrs for Allah in order to kill the
These youngsters not only are ready to do it, but are
actually in the process of doing it. Bombs are going off all over the
world killing and maiming thousands of people, not only on 9/11 in the
US, in London Madrid and Bali, but in Africa, India, Bengladesh,
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and many other places.
The first signs of the
Islamic Tsunami is already here, but the West doesn't understand, or
doesn't want to understand what is coming."
"The Americans, instead of realizing that this is as bad as World
War Two, or even worse, are going to pull out of Iraq, handing it over
to Iran on a silver platter. Next may come the Saudis and the rest of
the Gulf states. When dirty bombs go off all over Western towns, who
is going to stop the Iranians?"
"Now is the time to stop them, not only because they are developing
nuclear bombs, but because Iran has become the base for all Islamic
They supply, money, men, and weapons to Islamic terrorist
around the world, quite often through their diplomatic mail. Billions
of petro-dollars that are pouring into Iran are being funneled into
terrorist organizations world-wide. They believe, and perhaps rightly
so, that the West will do nothing to stop them in achieving their
Is history repeating itself? Are the Iranians making the same
mistake that Hitler made when he attacked Poland? Is the situation
"As a history teacher who studied the subject thoroughly I can tell
you that Western victory in World War Two was not all certain. Hitler
could have won the war if he would have gone ahead with the atomic
bomb development before the Americans.
The Germans began working on it
in the thirties, and it was Hitler's decision to prefer building more
conventional arms, as he considered atomic weapons sheer fantasy.
Hitler made the wrong decision, but had he made the right decision the
world would have been a different type of world today, wouldn't it?
The West won the war against Hitler by sheer chance. Very few people
seem to realize that."
I must say that his last words shook me up quite a bit. Had Hitler
made a different decision, I would have died in Dachau, there wouldn't
have been a Jewish state called Israel, and most likely there wouldn't
have been any Jews left in the world.
The idea that the Western
democracies in general and the fate of the Jewish people in particular
could have hinged on Hitler's one decision, is a scenario of the worst
He notices that his last words had an effect on me, and he smiled.
"I see that my words are not wasted on you," he said dryly. I nodded,
and he continued with his lecture. "Coming back to our time, the
Iranians rely on the West doing nothing about their development of
They also rely on their secret weapon: an inexhaustible
supply of Islamic suicide bombers, some of them who are already
planted all over the Western World. Besides the Islamic countries that
supply these suicide bombers, a second front has been opened, and that
is the Internet with more than five thousand Islamic web sites, brain
washing and urging young Moslems to become martyrs for Allah.
They especially target young Moslems who live in Europe and the West in
general. The Western intelligence authorities consider these web sites
a bigger threat than the Iranian atomic bomb. Al-Qaeda recently issued
a television broadcast that promised a devastating attack against its
enemies this spring. As we all know, Al-Qaeda doesn't make empty
"Actually, I don't understand why the Iranians bother to develop
atomic bombs and bring the whole world down on them. Every suicide
bomber is a potential atomic bomb, or a biological, chemical or dirty
bomb that can be no less devastating than an atom bomb. The Americans
and Europeans have no defense against this type of war."
"What can we do against this type warfare?" I asked him. "Well, you
Israelis, should better prepare yourself for another round against
Hezbollah. It will not be long in coming. It depends on the Iranians
to give the word. This time you will have to destroy Hezbollah no
matter what the cost may be."
"Of course, your next round against Hezbollah may involve the Syrians and the Iranians against you. The Iranians declared that they will not allow Hezbollah to be defeated no matter what and may launch their missiles against you. So will the Syrians. What will Israel do? It is unlikely that Israel will accept its destruction and may use their nuclear arsenal if the West will not come to their help. Perhaps our book of Revelation is not so wrong in describing that the end of the world would start at Armageddon, which we know as Har-Megiddo in Israel. The book of Revelations describe the last battle would be fought at Armageddon between the "Forces of good and the forces of evil."
"And who would you call the forces of good 'Israel or Islam?' I asked looking him straight in the eyes. He gave me a startled look. "If I were a Moslem, I would have no problem to name the forces of good and it wouldn't be Israel. As a Christian, I would probably name Israel, but as a Christian Arab I would prefer not to answer."
We looked at each other. His answer made it clear where the Israeli Arabs stood, whether they were Moslems or Christians. And why should I be surprised? After all the Israeli Arabs call the establishment of the State of Israel their nakbah (disaster).
Is there a way to avoid the "Armageddon"?
"I think there are two ways to avoid it. One can be a major war
which the West can win. As in World War Two, had the West attacked the
Germans in 1936 the war would have lasted not more than a month with
very few casualties. Their procrastination resulted in World War II
with all its consequences.
Eventually, the West will have to tackle
the Iranians, it is better that they do it now to avert a world
catastrophe later. With Iran defeated the Islamic onslaught will lose
its base, and it may be the turning point in history to defeat the
menace of extreme Islam. The majority of the Moslems don't want this
"You are painting a rather dark picture. When do you think we will
have the next round against Hezbollah?" I asked. "I think they will
attack again as soon as they are fully re-equipped and I think it will
be during the summer, while Israel is still in a military and
For a while, we sat in silence. He finished his second cup of
coffee and got up. "I know what I am going to do. I am going to Canada
to join my brother. This country is becoming much too dangerous for
Christians as well," he said. He thanked me for the coffee and we
"You said there are two ways to avoid Armageddon?" I remembered to ask him.
"Sure, all the West has to do is follow Putin's ways. He
assassinates his enemies without blinking an eye. Assassinate the four
or five Mullahs who run the show, Ahmadinejad, and a few more Iranian
fanatics, and the War can be avoided.
It may be difficult to do, but
not impossible. With today's hi-tech technology I am sure that new
weapons against individuals are being prepared right now. I think it
would be a better way of handling the matter than an all out war
The conversation with Francis was not more encouraging than the one
I had with the Palestinian student five years ago. It was becoming
clear that Israel may be on the forefront for the coming war of the
West against Islam, unless we follow Francis' suggestion to
assassinate the heads of the snake, rather than going to war with
