To Help Pakistan, Fight Iran

[Washington Post] Saul Singer - The assassination of Benazir Bhutto is yet another brutal peek into the world's future if the jihad threat is not confronted and defeated. Just as Syria routinely assassinates its democratic opponents in Lebanon, and just as Iraqi politicians and citizens fear for their lives while trying to escape a legacy of tyranny, we see how Islamo-fascists will stop at nothing to destroy their archenemies: democracy and freedom. We also see that no country or faith is safe from the jihadis and their favorite weapon, the suicide bomber, since they have no compunction at slaughtering fellow Muslims in a Muslim country. The problem of Pakistan cannot be viewed in isolation, but rather in the continuum of the West's battle to defend itself against jihad. The Muslim world itself is a primary target of the jihadis, who see it as the springboard for confronting the West. The most important thing the West can do to help Pakistan and all other Muslim countries, themselves torn between battling and appeasing the jihadis, is to stand up to jihadi central: Iran. The entire jihadi front, including Hamas, Hizbullah, al-Qaeda, and even the Taliban, will benefit from a nuclear Iran. The sense of inevitability surrounding an Iranian bomb must be broken, or struggles and tragedies like that of Pakistan will multiply in both the Muslim world and the West.
