The Last Angry Man

BPW on the<br>New 940 Montreal (2006)




"The Last Angry Man"

BPW Talk Show on the New 940 Montreal


 

 

 Dear Friends,

 

I am pleased to report that I have been invited by Radio 940 AM Montreal to host a special series of innovative and incisive talk shows Sundays from noon to two.

 

It will not be ordinary talk radio. 940 AM has taken the bold initiative of allowing us to bring public advocacy to the airwaves. The same vigor and resolve that the Institute has brought to bear to help the hungry, the homeless, the victims of racism, vulnerable seniors, and all those put upon by the mindless tyranny of state bureaucracy will now be taken to another level. Through its national alliances, the Institute has shown that citizen coalitions can deliver solutions to suffering that the false pieties used by our elected officials to explain their inactions do not.

 

Our journal, Barricades, gave our work a national press voice. Now, thanks to 940, we will have an electronic media voice.

 

But this will not be merely an indulgence in talking the talk. We will walk the walk. We will bring on air many of the most compelling personalities you will hear anywhere. But not just to pontificate. These guests, many of whom work with the Institute, are among the most effective social activists and guardians of the public interest in the country. They will bring to bear their experience and assets to guide, advise and intercede on behalf of the real needs of real people.

 

There comes a time when people get tired. Tired of being victims of injustice, neglect and unearned suffering. You all know people like this. I want to hear about them. I want to hear from them. I want to hear from you. And to you I pledge that we will not just hear, but listen, and engage in ardent advocacy to get real solutions to real problems.

 

This will be talk radio as you’ve never heard it before. We will speak truth to power and in so doing will empower all our listeners. An empowerment that will help them turn away from Canadians’ tragic self-doubt driven by a jealousy of others’ self-belief that has caused so many to surrender the independence of their individual consequence to the narrow prejudices of statocratic dictate. Effective advocacy is a two-way street. It is as much about demanding responsible citizenship as it is about defending citizens’ rights. As Bertrand de Jouvenal wrote so well, “A nation of sheep is bound to produce a government of wolves.”

 

All this we pledge and more. You will hear none of the political correctness that has rendered so many in this land so senseless. What you will get is hard hitting analysis and discussion of the issues that affect our everyday lives. Answers for the real world. We will prepare you for the week ahead. But with a bottom line of unconventional wisdom on the people and stories in the news.

 

This show will remind Canadians that the “Just Society” which people of goodwill seek to build, has not yet found full expression in the social contract between governors and governed. It will remind us that the less powerful are no less human and the less privileged no less worthy of compassion. It will remind us of the promise of a society loyal to the warm glow of conscience and not to the icy frost of indifference.

 

The causes and cases we champion will be guided by simple principles as old as the scriptures and as fresh as the Charter. When we hear of wrongs, we will try to right them; when we hear of suffering, we will try to heal it; when we hear of injustice, we will try to stop it.

 

This I believe. Public advocacy, in this forum, at this time, in this land can help us do better. Do better than merely surviving by running between the raindrops; do better than meekly accepting a society that dares not care; do better than mutely witnessing governments that can no longer tell right from wrong.

 

Radio is still the most intimate, immediate and interactive of electronic media. I plan to make the most of it. The name chosen by 940 for the program says it all. “The Last Angry Man”. I hope to do justice to the name and to our listeners. I will not always calm you with what you want to hear; but I will always strengthen you with what you need to know.

 

My sincerest thanks to you all.

BPW

“I think this report says far more about how badly privacy is
protected worldwide than about how well Canada is doing.
Canada’s public sector privacy legislation is woefully outdated.
The reality on the ground is that Canadian privacy is insufficiently

sorry spot on a global level.”

SPECIAL EDITION OF “THE LAST ANGRY MAN” WITH THE SPEAKERS
FOR THE 10TH POLICY CONFERENCE OF THE INSTITUTE FOR

”QUESTIONS OF VALUES: WAYS OF RESPONSE TO THE ISLAMIST CHALLENGE”

The voices of these speakers carry unparalleled eloquence, authenticity, and legitimacy. Brigitte Gabriel overcame a childhood of victimization from Islamist violence in Lebanon becoming a journalist of international renown and founding the American Congress for Truth as well as writing the best-selling book “Because They Hate”; Syrian-born American psychologist Dr. Wafa Sultan  has boldly debated the most extreme of Islam’s clerics and Jihadists whenever and wherever they agreed to including on al-Jazeera, the Arab world’s leading news network; frequent CNN commentator Nonie Darwish, a founding member of Arabs for Israel, suffered personal family tragedy stemming from the extremist expressions of Islamist influence in her native Egypt, rebuilt a new life in America and remained resolute and unrelenting in guarding her post at the barricades of reason; and Iranian-born former Miss World Canada Nazanin Afshin-Jam  put aside personal ambition to lead an international effort focusing on the abuse of women in Iran, and throughout the radical Muslim world, dedicating herself to unstinting work to save the life of an 18-year old Tehran rape victim sentenced to death under Sharia law. In a world of instant gratification and instant destruction these women are truly profiles in courage.

GROUND ZERO IN THE NORTH KOREA CRISIS

At the crossroads of the nuclear crisis in the Far East and the Islamo-Fascist axis in the Middle East stands the world’s largest democracy. India.

From Bangalore, Prof. Madhav Das Nalapat Director of the School of Geopolitics at the Manipal Academy in New Delhi. Prof. Nalapat played a critical role in the recent U.S.-India nuclear agreements and is consulted by many governments on security strategies.

He discusses his theory of “Proxy Nuclear States” that he first put forward in 1998. Prof. Nalapat argues that both North Korea and Pakistan are "proxy" nuclear states created by China to keep India and Japan, Asia’s largest democracies, off-balance. And that now China is seeking to utilize the same strategy against the United States despite the diplomatic niceties it is mouthing at the UN.

We were also be joined by Gen. Lewis Mackenzie  who gave us his strategic observations garnered from thirty years involvement in international peacemaking efforts on what the future may hold and what the appropriate response, from east and west, should be to the geopolitical, as well as military, challenge posed by North Korea.

From Washington we got the American perspective from FRANK GAFFNEY, Jr. president of the Center for Security Policy. Mr. Gaffney held senior positions in the Department of Defense under President Ronald Reagan including that of Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy. He is the author of “War Footing: Ten Steps America Must Take to Prevail in the War for the Free World”

A SPECIAL EDITION

IN CONVERSATION WITH DR. TAWFIK HAMID

“THE MAN WHO LEFT TERROR”

 

 

 

“Dr. Tawfik Hamid has been a constant source of inspiration to me and my family since the murder of our son, Daniel Pearl, by terrorists in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2002. He is a most effective voice in our struggle to win the hearts and minds of youngsters in the Muslim world. I consider Tawfik to be a true humanist and a great friend.”

~ Judea Pearl, father of murdered journalist Daniel Pearl

 

Born in Egypt to a secular Muslim family, Tawfik Hamid joined the extremist Islamic group Jama'a Islamya when he was a student in medical school. At the time, that group was headed by Ayman Al-Zawahiri now the No.2 man in Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin-Laden’s chief lieutenant. Tawfik Hamid has almost singularly unique intimate insights into the mindset of today’s tyrants of theocratic terror - he used to pray with Al-Zawahiri.

 

In his studies Dr. Hamid was learning to heal, but in his thoughts, as he says, he “dreamed to die for Allah and to share in terrorist acts.”  He finally came to reject the hate and violence that radical Islam was fomenting within him.  He became a physician and a scholar of Islamic texts.  When he began to preach in Mosques to promote a message of peace, he himself became a target of the very same Islamic extremists who had been his friends. They threatened his life, forcing him and his family to flee Egypt, and then Saudi Arabia.  As Dr. Hamid says "The powers of darkness were overwhelming and I was forced to emigrate with my family to the West seeking freedom."

 

His mission now is "to speak out against Islamic fundamentalism, a cancer that is spreading with frightening rapidity across the globe today."  A courageous as well as scholarly initiator of Islamic reform, Dr. Hamid seeks to build new thinking within Islam to overcome the hatred and violent extremism that have metastasized within his religious tradition. As he states so succinctly, “In order to make love prevail you must first defeat hate”!

 

Tawfik Hamid is the author of “The Roots of Jihad” . Fox News military analyst Lt. Gen. (ret.) Tom McInerney (pictured at right) calls it a brilliant book that describes our challenge. Hamid states that Islamic terrorism has the support of the majority of Muslims and that Islam be reformed to become a religion of tolerance. Today it is a religion of intolerance.”

 

 

This past February Dr. Hamid  spoke on counterterrorism at the Intelligence Summit in Washington D.C. The title of his talk was “The mindset of the Islamist terrorists.”  To view his interview on Fox News please click on the link below.

A FULL PROGRAM OF YOUR VIEWS

 

WITH SPECIAL GUEST ALASTAIR GORDON

PRESIDENT OF THE CANADIAN COALITION FOR DEMOCRACIES

 

“I would like to offer an invitation. There are a few members of the UN who recognize that a brutal global jihad is being waged against the free world, but more who are friends or appeasers of that jihad. Today, I am inviting the leaders of those democratic nations who have proven their commitment to defending freedom and tolerance to join me at a Conference of Free Nations to be held in Canada. There, we will take the historic first steps in forging a Western alliance to defeat this brutal common enemy.”
~ Alastair Gordon

A TRIBUTE TO ORIANA FALLACI
A LIFE WELL-LIVED

Last Friday Oriana Fallaci died. It would not be overstating it to call her, in Robert Spencer’s words, “…a warrior in the cause of human freedom…”. She was an icon of advocacy journalism for the past half-century. But more than that, from her days as a teenager in the anti-fascist resistance to her last appearances in frail and failing health, she taught us all the primordial responsibility incumbent on public intellectuals, and indeed on all those who engage in public affairs, to guard liberty and truth with precious vigor and resolve. Hers was truly a profile in courage. In one of her last talks she spoke words that are her own most eloquent epitaph.  “…to die a little less when I die....to make people think a little more, outside the dogmas that this society has nourished us with through centuries. To give stories and ideas that help people to see better, to think better, to know a little more….” ~ BPW

 Please view ”Oriana Fallaci: A Life Well Lived” at the following link on the Institute’s website:

REMEMBERING 9/11

WHY WE STAND WITH THE FREE

The Islamo-Fascists we now fight in this World War that began five years ago have emptied the category of the innocent. They claim butchery as their right, slaughter as their legacy.  The deep moral and political significance of this change has been too often – and too consciously - ignored by those in the West pandering to Islamic blackmail. And this could have graver consequences because of the deep-rooted cowardice of response in the media and academe.”~ BPW

ONE CANADIAN’S “APOLOGY”

A COMMENTARY BY BPW

 

One of the hats I wear is that of a talk show host. I have spent much time the past several weeks on the Mid-East crisis. I have been very clear in my views. This is not just democratic Israel’s struggle. This is the free world’s struggle. Israel is merely the frontline nation in this World War against a theocratic tyranny that seeks to impose its hegemony over the liberal west.

 

I have been flooded with supportive e-mails and calls from across the country. Most of you “get it”. You understand that the heinous killings and provocations of the Jihadists and their fellow travellers are those of fascists not freedom fighters. That they hate us for what we do right, live free, not for anything we do wrong. But some of you good Canadians are upset. Very upset. You consider my positions somewhat “un-Canadian”. Who knows, maybe one day you politically-correct Lilliputians out there may get your wish and get me thrown off air.

I offend your delicate sensibilities. You don’t like to believe that in this world of instant communication and instant destruction there really is evil. It’s not all gray all the time. You would like me to have a more “proportional” position. You would like me to share your sunshine patriot moral relativism. Your fawning chattering-class notions of every culture’s right to be wrong. Your knee-jerk anti-Americanism. And most of all, your fashionably smug Canadian political equivalency that masks nothing less than a cowardice to confront murder and mayhem.   

 

Well, I certainly wouldn’t want to be responsible for neurotic breakdowns among the fey and feckless of you out there. So, as your humble servant, I will offer the following apology inspired by retired Marine Corps Gen. Charles Pitman from whom I have liberally borrowed in some places. And please don’t get your knickers in a knot that I had the audacity to draw inspiration from an American.

I am sorry that it has not been recognized to Canada’s credit that almost every recent Canadian military engagement where we sent the best of our youth into harm’s way was in the defense of Muslims in peril. In Bosnia. In Kosovo. In the Persian Gulf. In Kuwait. In Afghanistan. In Iraq (yes we were there). And the list goes on.   
 
I am sorry that so few Canadians demanded an apology from Islamist extremists and their state supporters after 9/11 and after all the other atrocities from London to Madrid. Bali to Beslan. Jerusalem to Amsterdam
 
I am sorry that most Arabs and Muslims have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships.  
 
I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.  
 
I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the west in their religious schools, mosques, and government-controlled media and that Canada, until recently, sent foreign aid to the Palestinian authority that allowed it to produce textbooks propagating hate against Israel and the west.

 

I am sorry that so few Canadians know that Israel was the only state to recognize the Arab State of Palestine in 1948 while Palestine’s neighbouring Arab cousin-states attacked Israel and occupied Palestine keeping its territory hostage, after an aggressive war, for twenty years never allowing it independence.

 

I am sorry Canadians do not call for Arab apologies.

 

I am sorry that so many of you deny to Israel, which holds territories acquired after a defensive war as France, Russia and America did in its Pacific possessions until peace was achieved, the same rights as those nations had under international law.

 

I am sorry so many do not recognize that even under Israeli occupation Palestinians have the lowest infant mortality, highest medical services and the largest percentage of university students of any frontline Arab jurisdictions.

 

I am sorry that the U.S. and Israel are the biggest financial supporters of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arab neighbouring states contribute token amounts and blame those self-same supporters for all the troubles in the Mid-East. 

  

I am sorry that Jordan kicked out the PLO into south Lebanon; that Egypt has imprisoned over 40,000 members of the violent Muslim Brotherhood; and that even Saudi Arabia has denounced Hezbollah and yet much of our media demands that Israel must suffer assaults on its people without response.

I am sorry that successive governments of Lebanon have failed those brave Lebanese who made the Cedar revolution to be free but have been betrayed at every turn by weak leaders who allow everything from the arming of homicidal gangs from the PLO in the 80’s to Hezbollah today, and succumb on bended knee to the dictates of Syria and Iran.

 

I am sorry that UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan failed to protect the poor of Iraq from the "oil for food" money scam in which he protected his own son’s involvement, and now seeks moral absolution because a UN outpost was accidentally attacked instead of being pulled out earlier as all UN observers had been in 1967, 1973 and 1982.

 

I am sorry that Annan failed the people of Lebanon in refusing to send in 10,000 combat ready troops into South Lebanon to control Hezbollah as was required by Resolution 1559, just as he failed the people of Rwanda in refusing to give UN peacekeeping commander Canadian Gen. Roméo Dallaire the necessary assets and authority to stop the genocide in Rwanda as he was mandated to do by Resolution 1441 when Annan was the UN official responsible for peacekeeping operations.
  
I am sorry that our own left wing, our media, and so many of our own brainwashed masses do not understand any of this and fail to recognize that the courage of Prime Minister Harper’s principled resolve is restoring Canadian pride, purpose and consequence on the world stage alongside our traditional allies in the family of free nations.

 

I am sorry that Prime Minister Harper, initially facing derision for questioning the UN’s failures, was proven correct when he asked why the observers weren’t pulled out at the start of the conflict.

 

I am sorry that here in Canada Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, in the person and party of Bill Graham and the Liberals, are of such low limitation and narrow circumstance that they can only oppose for the sake of their political opportunism and not propose for the sake of the progress of freedom. And when they are proven wrong refuse to apologize.

 

I am sorry that some Arab governments encourage homicide bombers by paying their families $20,000 upon their deaths.  
 
I am sorry that those same bombers are brainwashed thinking they will receive 72 virgins in "paradise."  
 
I am sorry that Hezbollah and their allied gangs of thugs think pregnant women, babies, children, the elderly and other noncombatant civilians are legitimate targets to kill, and legitimate human shields to use.

 

I am sorry that so many in our country think it is legitimate, put aside “proportionate”, of Hezbollah to invade Israel; kill eight soldiers; kidnap two others ostensibly in order to bargain for the release of Hezbollah and Hamas thugs imprisoned in Israel for murder and terror. By that standard any criminals here at home should be allowed to kill and kidnap cops as hostages in return for the release of their fellow criminal friends in Canadian prisons.

 

I am sorry that Israel is vilified because it has suffered less casualties in this current conflict because it protects its most vulnerable instead of exploiting them.
 
I am sorry that in the 21st Century our troops must still defend Arab women against gang rape; beheadings and stonings that they are subjected to from retrograde and revanchiste religious laws that should have died with the Dark Ages.  
 
I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than they have any other people. And that continues in Lebanon for those who think Hezbollah exercises its stranglehold over the south only through dispersing some $100,000,000 of Iranian money. Most of the money goes for arms and training. Most of its control comes from its home-bred “Murder Incorporated”. Al Capone had nothing on these guys.
 
I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state. 

 

I am sorry that Hamas betrays the Palestinian people with a refusal to renounce violence thereby stopping the progression of Palestine from “de facto” to “de jure” statehood.
  
I am sorry that Hezbollah, Hamas. Al-Qaida and all the other terrorists always find a convenient "Holy Site" to attack from and then demand an apology for those sites being destroyed.
 
I am sorry, as we approach the 5th anniversary of 9-11, that none of them apologized for the collapse of Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - one of America’s Holy Sites – after ramming jets into the World Trade Center
 
I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, the murders and beheadings of Nick Berg, Daniel Pearl, and all the others.

 

I am sorry that the brave souls on flight 93 who so valiantly fought their killers failed to rip those bastards hearts out.

 

The free world will get past this absurdity. It will punish those responsible because that is what we do. We’ve survived the appeasers before. As Churchill said of Chamberlain, “He wanted neither war nor Hitler. He got both.”   
 
The free world hangs out its dirty laundry for the entire world to see. That’s what the Jihadists can’t stand. The lamp of liberty focused on its wrongs. We hang it out there; fix the problems and move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so much. We don't hide this stuff like all those rogue Arab states and terror gangs constantly demanding western apologies.  


Canadians’ compassion should always be tempered with the vivid memories of free nations’ troops being killed, mutilated, burnt thrown out of windows and stomped on after being taken prisoners and all this amongst joyous crowds of celebrating Islamists handing out candies and cake in what the media love to call the “Arab street”.  
 
If you want more of an apology from this Canadian, who remembers that tens of thousands of us made the supreme sacrifice for freedom and now lay row on row in fields where poppies grow, you're going to have a long wait! So suck it up. As Gen. Pitman said. you have a better chance of finding those seventy-two virgins.

BPW’s OPENING COMMENTARY

The current Middle East crisis has brought Canada to a fateful hour. A new rendezvous with destiny. Not because of the threat of uncontained conflict; for containment there will be. Not because of any pressure from rising oil prices; for rise they always will without any pressure. Not because of some perceived humanitarian tragedy; for the true tragedy of human perception lies in ourselves. No, this is a fateful hour because it will test our courage, conscience and character as a people. And our response to this challenge will determine much of what we will be able to achieve at home and abroad in the years to come.

 

George Bernard Shaw wrote that “Liberty demands responsibility. That’s why so many dread it.” During this crisis we will see whether we have the courage to shoulder responsibility. Whether we possess the conscience to embrace liberty. And most importantly, whether we have the character not to dread.

 

A brave new Prime Minister is trying to restore the vision of Canadian pride and purpose. He is putting the world on notice that we have the steely resolve to marshal our vigilance and re-engage in mankind’s transcendent struggles for redemptive change.  If we flag or falter in that vision we will retreat to the sad spectacle of cowering in undeserved smug self-satisfaction that has been Canada’s hallmark these past dozen years. A hallmark that has masked nothing less than our own self-doubt driven by our jealousy of others self-belief.

And that jealousy and self-doubt have begun to rear their ugly heads once again in recent days. During the past week we have witnessed far too much commentary from the so-called progressive and humanitarian quarters that have presented egregiously erroneous views on the origins, nature and consequences of the current Middle East conflict. They have in common a total misunderstanding of state responsibilities and appropriate response in the existing international legal order. Worse still they exhibit, at best, woeful ignorance and, at worst, deliberate distortion. It’s time to put some hard truths on the table.

 

Many writers who have called for a “comprehensive ceasefire”, which I believe is the term currently in vogue, justify this demand by arguing that it does not matter who started the current crisis. This is dangerous naiveté. It is pervasive in the media and  will encourage young extremists, such as the Toronto 17, to make common cause with the vilest elements in this very dangerous world. Responsibility matters. And it matters precisely because terrorists, and terror-states, must know that their actions cannot be carried out without restraint of consequence.

 

This conflict did not start with the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah. It started when Israel unilaterally pulled out of Gaza and was assaulted over the successive months by 1000 Qassam rocket attacks carried out by Hamas. Many have sated that someone has to have the courage to stop conflict. Well, Israel tried. It did not retaliate for a single attack. It took the body blows.

 

But then Hamas was elected the government of the Palestinian Authority. That was the beginning of the road we are on today. Within an hour after the attack on Kerem Shalom - on the Israeli side of the Gaza border - which resulted in the deaths of two Israeli soldiers and the kidnapping of another, Hamas gleefully accepted responsibility for the planning and execution of it. Hamas, as the ruling entity of a political jurisdiction had committed an act of war against another political jurisdiction. The State of Israel.

 

Hezbollah’s attack near Kiryat Shemona in the north of Israel that resulted in eight dead Israeli soldiers and the kidnapping of two others was also no mere act of a terrorist group for Hezbollah is much more than that. Hezbollah, as a political party, is part of the Lebanese government holding two cabinet posts. That government has, for six years following Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from south Lebanon, refused to comply with UN resolution 1559 and disarm Hezbollah’s military wing. And Lebanese President Lahoud and Prime Minister Zinoura have gone beyond mere refusal in just the past week. Zinoura was taped in an interview by Italy’s respected “Corriere della Sera” as stating unequivocally that he does not want Hezbollah disarmed. Lahoud went even further than that that on CNN. He flatly declared that the Lebanese army, which Lebanon has consistently refused to dispatch to Hezbollah territory in south Lebanon, will fight with Hezbollah against Israel. Lebanon has declared, in fact and in law – and against the desires of most of the Lebanese people who so valiantly attempted the “Cedar” revolution to be free - that the Hezbollah military is a division of the Lebanese army. In so doing, the Lebanese government has hoisted itself on its own pétard.

International law recognizes that any country attacked by a terrorist group may prosecute military reprisals against the host country of such a group as if, in international legal authority Robert Tucker’s words, “That country itself participated in those attacks.” This is known as the doctrine of “self-help”.  It has been accepted by every legal authority from Julius Stone to Derek Bowett from Kelsen to Oppenheim as applying equally to the UN when that “august” body will not, or cannot, act. Due to Canada’s sponsorship of the International Commission on State Sovereignty and Intervention (ICSSI) we have yet another dimension to  “self-help”, that being the “responsibility to protect”. Two successive Canadian administrations have embraced and endorsed this ICSSI doctrine.

A
doctrine which not only obligates a state to protect its own citizens against attack as Israel is doing, but goes further and imposes on obligation on the family of nations to protect any population that has been the victim of aggression and violence by its own leaders within its own borders over-riding the ancient Westphalian standard of physical borders being sovereign and sacrosanct.

 

But in the case of Lebanon we need not even resort to these noble standards of international law. The government of Lebanon, through its President and Prime Minister, has made it clear that Hezbollah, both politically and militarily, is an integral part of the Lebanese ruling authority and of its army. Therefore the actions of Hezbollah were ipso facto done in the name of the Lebanese state and were therefore acts of war against the Israeli state committed by Lebanon as well as Hezbollah. Just this morning the Lebanese government authorized billboards that declare that all good Muslims must kill Israelis. Lebanese leadership has betrayed the hopes of the Lebanese people and as sad as that may be Israel is permitted full retaliatory response to defend itself and its people.

 

Furthermore, the implications that Israel is targeting Lebanese civilians and not taking even minimum precautions to protect them, borders on the basest kind of bias. Israel has showered Beirut with millions of leaflets hours before any raids. It did the same in south Lebanon asking people to move back 20 miles across the Litani River. It uses loudspeakers before any artillery bombardment. The rules of engagement that the Israel Defense Forces are operating under demand that it not bomb pre-emptively but only after an attack from Lebanon. The IDF even invited television crews to film its preparations on the northern border, something that NBC military analyst and U.S. Medal of Honour winner Col. Jack Jacobs called wonderfully humanitarian but militarily “stupid” because it put Israel’s soldiers at risk by exposing their positions to Hezbollah. What other army, never mind terrorist thugs like Hezbollah and Hamas, would prosecute self-defense in such a humane manner?

 

No civilians have ever been targeted. Israel’s bombing of Hezbollah positions in south Lebanon and in Beirut have been as surgical as possible. Contrary to many of the pictures we see on television, even the bombing in south Beirut has been limited to an area approximately 20 blocks long by 10 blocks wide. President Lahoud, unintentionally of course, even pointed this area out to CNN correspondent Nic Robertson two days ago.

 

Anyone seeing the tape will view a Beirut quite intact except for the area where the Hezbollah cowards position their guns and headquarters under the human shield of civilians. Why is there so little condemnation of Hezbollah’s strategy of hiding behind women and children not only in south Beirut, but in the villages of south Lebanon? And curiously why is there so little mention that Hezbollah and Hamas have openly stated policies that all Israeli civilians are fodder for their homicide bombers. Yes it is sad that hundreds of Lebanese have been killed. But is it any less sad that Israelis have had to suffer over 9,000 terror attacks and thousands dead in the past six years? Or is Israeli blood cheaper than Lebanese blood?

General Lewis MacKenzie pointed out recently that if numbers-crunching was a standard of just war how would the allies have avoided condemnation in World War II since they killed five times as many German civilians in bombing raids on German cities as Germans killed in bombing raids on France and England. Yes, hundreds of thousands of Lebanese have been displaced. But so have 1.2 million Israelis living in the North who have had to go to central and southern Israel for days to escape bombardment. There is no equivalency in the numbers game. This is a matter of moral turpitude on the part of the Arabs.

Though still broadly supported throughout the land, Stephen Harper’s vision has come under some gratuitous assault in the past week among those in the knee-jerk anti-American “progressive” chattering-classes in both of Canada’s official solitudes. His bold foreign and military policies have been unjustly attacked as “slavishly following the lead of the United States”.  Nothing could be further from the truth. These attacks have been not only transparent political insults to Mr. Harper but an insult to Canada’s legacy of having twice the number of servicemen and women in uniform as a percentage of population than America did in both World Wars. This is the Canadian value system. Fighting for freedom at Vimy Ridge, on the cliffs of Dieppe and in the sands of Normandy.

 

Mr. Harper is not following the U.S. He is leading Canada. He was the first western leader to demand that Hamas renounce violence upon its election. The first to cut off non-humanitarian aid to Hamas. The first to demand the arrest of Saeed Mortazavi, the Iranian prosecutor who beat Montreal photojournalist Zara Khazemi over the head with his shoe during torture sessions that led to her death, when Iran sent him as its observer to the UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva. The first to pronounce Israel’s response in Lebanon as “…appropriate and proportional…” And when Harper declared in Kandahar that Canadians “don’t cut and run”, he restored Canadian pride and purpose and put the world on notice that we were back on course as a nation that would be engaged with our sister democracies in mankind’s transcendent struggles for redemptive change.

 

Charges have also been levied that Ottawa is “bungling” the evacuation effort. Another example of rank hypocrisy. It took Canada no longer than America to organize the effort but it was harder because Canada has no military assets in the Mediterranean.  No ships. No planes. And once again to quote Gen. Mackenzie, this is the result “of fifteen years of opposition by the “progressives” in this country to the purchase of any military hardware including heavy-lift aircraft and any naval vessels”. Canada has had to lease them from private enterprises. Now these self-same “progressives” have the audacity to criticize rescue efforts that are impeded only by the constraints they themselves placed on Canada’s capacities.

 

Disinformation has abounded as well on the scale of the evacuation. Statements have been made that Canada is attempting to evacuate only “a few thousand”. The truth is that there are some 40,000 Lebanese who hold Canadian passports. They don’t all live in Canada. Only some 10,000 do. But over 25,000 have applied to be taken out. But facts don’t matter to the left. They don’t do math. Realities are mere fodder to be molded to suit their pre-conceived notions. America, with ten times our population and a fleet in the Mediterranean is evacuating only about 10,000. And they only beat us to the shores of Lebanon by a few days.

 

This past week also saw the shameful spectacle, particularly in Quebec, of academics and media who went totally berserk when Quebec Tory MP Jean-Pierre Blackburn had the “temerity” to call Israel an ally of Canada. Some French talk-show hosts even refused to use the word “Israelis” preferring “les Juifs” – the Jews – instead.  But they didn’t call the Hezbollah murderers “les Musselmans” – the Moslems. Oh no. They were “militants” – militants. Something the Liberal Party used to call its workers.

 

But then can you imagine the sin of it? Calling a sister democracy an ally. No, the “progressives” would much prefer that we stay enslaved to the bankruptcy of moral relativism and loyal to our true Canadian doctrine of the right of failed states to be wrong. Funny thing though. The “intelligentsia”, again particularly in Quebec, had no problem when French President Chirac boarded the French nuclear submarine “Vigilante” some months ago  and declared his readiness to use nuclear weapons if radical Islam threatened the glorious French Republic. Not a peep of criticism on that. Anyone else wondering why?

 

Israel’s latest mission of self-defense is not, as many writers have termed it, “a perpetuation of a cycle of violence”. For as history has shown, every time Israel remained quiescent and accepted the body blows, Arab states and terrorist groups viewed these as signs of weakness and attacked again and again and again. Nor is it an “eye for an eye” as others have written. In the 1920’s and 1930’s before there was an Israel, or a Hitler, hundreds of Palestinian Jews were slaughtered in Jaffa, in Hebron, in Safed and half a dozen other cities. All these murders were done on the instructions of the religious and political leader of Palestine’s Arab Muslims, the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini who spent World War II in Berlin as a guest of, and radio propagandist for, Adolf Hitler and was to be tried at Nuremberg as a war criminal before he was smuggled back to the Middle East with the aid of the French and the British. Husseini’s nephew Feisal was one of Yassir Arafat’s closest collaborators and as a co-founder of the PLO an active participant in that organization’s bloodlust for the Jews.

 

In 1970 Pierre Trudeau enforced martial law; abolished basic civil liberties and put 10,000 soldiers into the streets of Montreal when the FLQ kidnapped British Trade Commissioner James Cross and Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte eventually  killing the latter. When Trudeau was asked by a CBC reporter how far he would go to protect Canada from internal terror, he glared angrily into the camera and declared, “Just watch me!” It is the basest form of hypocrisy that the left upholds a double standard in condemning Stephen Harper’s support for Israeli democracy’s self-defense against external terror.

 

But the problem is even deeper than that. Not to put too much emphasis on polls, there are two that bring into stark relief the disconnect of Canadians from the reality of “World War IV” as former CIA Director James Woolsey calls the struggle against Islamic theocratic tyranny. Europeans, who have felt the brunt and burn of Jihadist bombs from London to Beslan, voted 82% support for Israel in a Sky News Poll on July 17th. In Canada, a recently released Léger poll, showed only some 57% in favour of the Prime Minister’s unequivocal support for Israel.

 

Robert Kennedy said many times in many places that “…courage was the cardinal human virtue…” We can only hope that Canadians shed the hypocrisy they cling to as children grasping their favourite blanket, and find the courage to rise to the call of virtue in this most dangerous of times against this most dangerous of enemies.  If we fail, we will be condemned to Dante’s admonition that, “…the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis…” For as Andrew McCarthy of the  Foundation for the Defence of Democracies has written, “Israel’s war is our war for it is the frontline state in the family of free nations.” We are fortunate to have a Prime Minister who knows these lessons well. It is to be hoped that this land will be deserving of him.

THE ISLAMO-FASCIST AXIS
LET IT TREMBLE AT THE COMING OF MASADA’S HEIRS

The war that broke out in the Middle East this week is unlike all previous conflicts in that region. For the first time the rival terrorist thugs of Hamas and Hezbollah who had challenged each other for supremacy in the leadership of the Middle East’s “Murder Incorporated” have come together in a united front. They have gone beyond their homicidal bombings and have opened a formal two-front war against Israel.

The best intelligence indicates that the reason they did it now was that the theocratic tyranny of Iran, and the fascist regime of Syria - with the blessing of the Wahabbi clerics of Saudi Arabia who have been major funders of Al Qaeda - pushed them together to use them as a client army to stop any attempt at peace and stability in the region.

They are threatened by the nascent growth of democracy in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine and they fully realize that once the door to freedom is opened -even ever so slightly - it is impossible to shut, and their own imprisoned peoples’ transcendent yearnings for redemptive change will spread like wildfire. That possibility is something that these regimes and murderous gangs cannot countenance.

Their goal - openly stated from Bin-Laden, to Iran’s Ahmadinejad to Hamas’ Meshaal and Haniyeh to Hezbollah’s Nasrallah - is Islamic hegemony over the free world.  In these killers minds Israel, precisely because it is the front-line defender of western liberalism and freedom, must be destroyed. Israel, this tiny bastion of liberty, is to these Islamo-Fascists what republican Spain was to Hitler. But unlike the Spanish Republicans Israel will not fall. If the western world flags in its support for a sister democracy, its own consciences will.

Israel understands full well the meaning of “carpe diem” – seize the day! That precisely at a time of siege, a free people must seize the tide and turn it towards the destruction of the mightiest walls of oppression. To keep faith with the immortal words of Thomas Jefferson to “…pledge eternal vigilance against any attempt at tyranny over the mind of man…”

The invasive aggressions on Israel’s national sovereignty, from Kiryat Shemona in the north to Kerem Shalom in the south, were clear violations of international law that permit the use of full retaliatory response by Israel. Canada’s own sponsored International Commission on State Sovereignty and Intervention added another dimension to the prevailing international legal doctrine of “self-help” - “the responsibility to protect”. It permits attacks against any nation that allows violent operations by any group from its own territory against another state. And the host state can be dealt with as if it had participated in them itself.

As a free people, who had twice the number of servicemen and women in uniform as a proportion of population than America did in both World Wars, we should be proud of Prime Minister Harper’s unwavering support of Israel as a sister democracy; unswerving condemnation of homicide as a tool of policy; and unyielding determination to remind Canadians of our own proud legacy of engagement in the expansion and defense of freedom.

It is instructive to note that the Israeli counterattacks against Hamas and Hezbollah escalated on Thursday July 13th. That day, in the Jewish calendar, is the fast day of the 17th of Tammuz. It was on that day, in the year 70 of the Common Era, that the walls of Jerusalem were breached by Roman invaders. Everyone knows the story of the 900 Jewish rebels who fortified themselves on the mountaintop of Masada and killed themselves rather than submit to Roman domination. Today, Israeli tank commanders take their oath on that mountaintop with the pledge that “Masada shall never fall again.”!

Hitler and Franco may not have feared “La Passionara’s” singing of “No Pasaran” – “they shall not pass” – when the Spanish Republicans challenged the fascists and Nazis. Those European thugs knew that the Republicans were militarily weak particularly after the slaughter at Guernica. But modern Israel is not weak. This small oasis of the free is no Guernica. And the leaders of today’s Islamo-Fascist Axis should tremble at the coming of Masada’s heirs.
