Running Just As Fast As I Can...

Here are some great articles to read:

The Brink of Madness
A familiar place.

By Victor Davis Hanson

When I used to read about the 1930s — the Italian invasion of Abyssinia, the rise of fascism in Italy, Spain, and Germany, the appeasement in France and Britain, the murderous duplicity of the Soviet Union, and the racist Japanese murdering in China — I never could quite figure out why, during those bleak years, Western Europeans and those in the United States did not speak out and condemn the growing madness, if only to defend the millennia-long promise of Western liberalism.
But nevertheless it is still surreal to reread the fantasies of Chamberlain, Daladier, and Pope Pius, or the stump speeches by Charles Lindbergh (“Their [the Jews’] greatest danger to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government”) or Father Coughlin (“Many people are beginning to wonder whom they should fear most — the Roosevelt-Churchill combination or the Hitler-Mussolini combination.”) — and baffling to consider that such men ever had any influence.

Not any longer.

Our present generation too is on the brink of moral insanity. That has never been more evident than in the last three weeks, as the West has proven utterly unable to distinguish between an attacked democracy that seeks to strike back at terrorist combatants, and terrorist aggressors who seek to kill civilians.

Hezbollah on the Ropes
By Steve Schippert
ThreatsWatch.org | August 3, 2006
Amid the relentless images of the dead extracted from a building in Qana, amid the fiery anger those images generated--from Lebanon to Europe and from Egypt to Indonesia--and amid deafening global cries for an immediate ceasefire, a curiously contradictory picture is emerging from the battlefields of Hizballistan: Hizballah is on the ropes, running short of resources and desperate for a ceasefire for its very survival.

While the world has held itself aghast at "Israeli aggression," Israel has been relentless in pursuit of what has been described as the fiercest Arab fighting force in the region. Undeterred by global outcry as over two thousand rockets and missiles have rained down upon Israeli cities with relatively little note, Israel has made good on their Prime Minister’s declaration of “Enough.”

Israel is providing a lesson on fighting the war on terror. The mighty Hizballah, rightfully feared as the most lethally armed terrorist organization on the planet, is now on the ropes.

Where is our Churchill?

The world is at war.

This should be obvious to most minimally conscious people. The armed forces, police, and militias of dozens of nations and organizations have been clashing on every populated continent for the past 5 years. The present war between Israel and Hezbollah should only highlight the veracity of this observation.

Yet even still, there are millions of people in the West, even in America, who seem totally clueless. Islamic terrorists? Some remote and nebulous menace that barely catches our attention when we watch the nightly news.

On Tuesday, British Prime Minister Tony Blair gave what I believe is going to be the speech that historians look back to when reviewing the course of the Fourth World War. In it, he articulated with crystal clear accuracy and that classic British eloquence (You'll never find an American politician use the words "contemporaneously" or "perniciously" in the same speech, much less the same sentence.) exactly what is at stake in the conflict in which we now find ourselves.

Two wanted after Israeli fatally stabbed

By Paul Mulvey

TWO men are wanted by police over the stabbing murder of a former Israeli soldier outside a Bondi shop, in an attack which lasted only seconds.

The victim was attacked by at least two men whom witnesses say jumped out of a car, bashed him with a pole or similar object, and left him with multiple stab wounds to the back and stomach.

Witnesses said a carload of men bashed the 36-year-old victim, named by Channel 10 as Arnon Gelman, at about 9.45pm (AEST) yesterday, although police were uncertain how many were involved.
Superintendent Mark Walton said detectives were trying to establish a motive but said it was not connected with the conflict in Lebanon between Israel and Hezbollah.
