In everyday life, and most especially in times of war, the Jewish dictum cited below is not only proper, but it is invariably life-saving. Even more so, if ( and, this is where the caveat lies ) the ultimate goal of war is to eventually “secure/win the peace”, then what better way to do so, other than to dispatch the enemy, before they have a chance to kill even more innocents?
Dunces can grasp such a basic “rule of war”. So, what’s up with US political (which wags the military) leadership, as well as Israeli leadership? Hint : both are virulently infected with “PC (im)moral relativism” psychosis, which is a cancerous tumor if left uncured.
Furthermore, logic and rational thinking dictates: a leadership which has mercy on ones enemies, is a leadership which will eventually have the blood of many innocents on its hands. In other words, what exactly is the expected result of leaving ones enemies – in a time of war – standing?
The ‘Midrash’ - http://www.myjewishlearning.com/texts/Rabbinics/Midrash.shtml explains many of life’s elemental lessons, with the following being one of them - ‘one who is compassionate to the cruel will ultimately become cruel to the compassionate’. As it is written, “And Saul and the nation spared Agag and the best sheep and cattle.”, and it is written (Ibid. 22:19) “And Nov, the city of priests, he smote with the edge of a sword.”
Extrapolating into current times, the above could not be any clearer, truer, or more contemporary in its meaning.
Therefore, this blogger has invested considerable time and energy – detailing the disasters/wreckage wrought by the (misnamed) Commander-in-Chief – demonstrating the utter disdain he has for America’s standing, as leader of the free world. Barack Hussein Obama, and his like-minded surrogates, has set out to destroy said position through a two-pronged approach – castration of the military, as well as a deconstruction of the American economy.
Most recently, ‘When Radical Politics Trumps National Security…What Can Go Wrong?Everything’ elicits a range of emotions, from nausea to outrage. General Dempsey’s disgraceful upbraid of military heroes, all for the “crime” of speaking against the Radical-in-Chief ( after they left the service! ), exposes his derelict military leadership, and is more appropriate for a banana republic, rather than the United States of America.
Further stirring the pot…are the revelations contained herein - ‘The Thug-in-Chief Hell Bent On Disarming Christian Patriots…Ordered His Racialist AG To Turn Up The Heat’ exhibits another manifestation of a radical at the helm. In other words, symbols of hyper-power, either via a hardened military apparatus, or a Constitutionally, legally armed populace, are foreign concepts to Barack Hussein Obama. Why is this? Here is why - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/20/the-thug-in-chief-hell-bent-on-disarming-christian-patriots-ordered-his-racialist-ag-to-turn-up-the-heat-addendum-to-barack-hussein-obamas-brave-new-world-second-amendment-pro-life-su/.
Moving right along…. ‘Shoring Up Barack Hussein Obama’s Second Term Plans…’ leaves no doubt, that destroying the economy and disarming the citizens is part of the regime’s plans - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/19/shoring-up-barack-hussein-obamas-second-term-plans-addendum-tobarack-hussein-obamas-deconstruction-plans-green-wise-via-the-economy-disarming-the-citizens-via-gun-control-commentary-by-ad/.
And if your stomach can still withstand it, ‘Barack Hussein Obama’s Reflexive Disdain For US Military Power…’ illustrates his basic animus towards all symbols/people military- related - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/09/barack-hussein-obamas-reflexive-disdain-for-us-military-power-his-planned-disenfranchisement-of-the-troops-ditto-his-surrogates-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/, as well as http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/09/the-anti-american-commander-in-chief-tasks-his-military-brass-to-do-what-pouring-fuel-onto-a-combustible-flame-law-of-intended-consequences-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.
Thus, the following report must be viewed within the prism of the above wrecking balls. There is no way around it. A tipping point has taken place within the military’s leadership. And if not turned around, the most feared fighting force in the world will become nothing more than a shell of its former self.
‘U.S. Commander Excuses Muslim Troop Murderers’ -
“Dhimmitude is the status that Islam’s Sharia law imposes on non-Muslims, making them subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur’an’s command that they ‘feel themselves subdued.’” Threatened with being proclaimed “enemies of Islam [and becoming] fair game as objects of violence” should they rebel against their Muslim masters, dhimmis can forever be counted on to bend a knee in “chastened subservience” to the murderous legions of Allah.”
“Of course, the station of dhimmitude does not necessarily have to be FORCED on non-Muslims. Today there are many who willingly—even eagerly–submit to an existence of craven servitude. Newsrooms, universities and the Democrat Party are filled with these pathetic souls. And so, unfortunately, are the upper echelons of the United States Military.”
“There can be no more perfect example of a cringing dhimmi than General John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. Speaking via satellite last week to reporters at the Pentagon, Allen suggested that “…the rising number of attacks on U.S. troops by Afghan police and soldiers may be due in part to the stress on Afghan forces from fasting during the just-concluded Muslim holy month of Ramadan.”
“Yep. Though Allen said the reasons for the murder of 10 American servicemen over the past month “are not fully understood and likely can be attributed to a variety of factors,” the general courageously honored the memory of his murdered troops—most of whom were shot down by Afghan security forces TRAINED by his own men–claiming that “fasting during the heat of summer and the peak of the fighting season” was a significant contributing factor in their deaths.”
“Coincidentally, this is the same General Allen who apologized so PROFUSELY at the beginning of the year for the unintentional burning of a number of Qurans at the Baghran airbase near Kabul. Addressing his sickening plea for forgiveness to the “noble people of Afghanistan,”—including, no doubt, the hundreds outside the base chanting “Die, die foreigners”– Allen did everything but slash his wrists in atonement for the tragic and unforgiveable deed. Naturally, he assured the throng that charred remains of the revered tomes would be “properly handled by appropriate religious authorities.” Presumably that will involve pious clerics in white gloves.”
“The link to Allen’s 1 minute, 27 second apology is included here. Watch it only on an empty stomach.”
“On August 10th, 6 US servicemen were killed in “rogue” attacks by “friendly” Afghan security forces. A week later, 2 were murdered by an Afghan policeman. All in all nearly 40 American soldiers have been killed since January by Afghan citizens ostensibly working WITH our troops to rid the nation of members of the Taliban.”
“But rest assured, NONE of these killings can be attributed to an Islamic religion which demands the utter subjugation or death of infidels and “foreign invaders.” For that would mean the honorable General Allen was responsible for shielding—even providing excuses for– those responsible in the death of his troops by embracing a phony and ultimately deadly mantra of political correctness. And no American commander could possibly do such a thing.”
“It’s behavior which is reserved for dhimmis only.”
Fellow Americans ( yes, I am an American-Israeli ), as wretched as you are feeling about the betrayal of your leaders, leaders in Israel are no walk on the beach. In fact, they are heartburn, ulcer and cringe worthy, and that is on a good day!
Consider : “Israel’s Failure of Leadership…’ is the reason why so many terrorists live to see another day, and Jews ultimately die, as a result of their mendacious behavior- http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/06/30/israels-failure-of-leadership-its-lack-of-statesmen-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.
Adding insult to grievous injury: how does a leadership justify releasing terrorists for any reason, least of all to placate ones enemies?
They can’t. Yet, they continually do so!
Topping off the list of Israel’s leadership horrors, one is hard pressed to find another which beats this – the wanton, total destruction of thriving Jewish communities, all in the delusional hope that a genocidal foe will be satiated.
‘The Bitter Fruits of Disengagement’ will go down in history – in a class of self-destruction – like none other - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/06/22/the-bitter-fruits-of-disengagement/.
Dhimmitude takes many forms, but few grovel lower than those who should be standing strong and proud. Whither are they? Not in Israel, and obviously not back in the States.
The west is near bowed. These are the fruits of the “red/green” alliance.
