The U.S. Encourages the Dreams of the Islamists

(Washington Times) Clifford D. May - When the UN Security Council on Friday passed a resolution condemning Israel, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) spokesman Dawood Shihab called it a "victory." Fawzy Barhoum, a spokesman for Hamas, called the resolution an "important evolution in international positions" and expressed Hamas' "appreciation." The UN exhibits passivity toward the ongoing carnage in Syria, the genocide of Christians, Yazidis and other minorities in the broader Middle East, and the conflict in Yemen, but expends considerable energy railing against the world's only Jewish state, a tiny democratic nation on the front lines of the war against radical Islam. The dream of PIJ, Hamas, the Islamic State, the Islamic Republic of Iran and other Islamic revolutionaries is to destroy the only state in the region not ruled by Muslims, the only one in which minorities - ethnic, religious, sexual - are guaranteed basic human rights, and to incorporate that exceptional state into a new empire that, over time, is to expand well beyond the region.
