Iran Goads the Gullible West

(Melanie Phillips Electric Media) Melanie Phillips - One of the more notable characteristics of the world jihadi community is how proud - indeed, positively boastful - they are about their murderous intent - presumably because they really do believe they are fulfilling a sacred mission. From Gaza to Mogadishu, from Ramallah to Tehran, those bent on holy war repeatedly announce their support for and encouragement of the defeat of the West, the murder of Jews, and the destruction of Israel.

Examples of this by the Palestinian Authority abound, including the refusal to accept Israel as a Jewish state; the intention of ethnically cleansing a future Palestinian state of Jews; and the true purpose of such a state as a staging post for the ultimate elimination of Israel. None of these statements causes the U.S., Britain or the EU to miss a beat in continuing to treat the PA and Fatah as "moderates," and the Israelis as the true impediments to a peaceful solution. Now this same Western cartel of cant is plugging its ears as Rouhani boasts that the Geneva nuclear deal means 'the surrender of big powers before the great nation of Iran." Then Iran's soft-talking, moderate and charming foreign minister Zarif laid a wreath at the grave of Imad Mugniyeh, the fiendishly effective Hizbullah military commander who was responsible for the murders of countless Americans and other Westerners at the behest of the Iranian regime.
