The brazen, unhindered advance of Taliban militants in Pakistan threatens the world once gain with the specter of universal jihad.
The consolidation of Islamic imperialism in the Pakistani heartland underscores the futility of U.S. efforts to prop up Pakistan’s ruling generals with massive amounts of foreign aid. The military, riddled with Taliban sympathizers in its lower ranks and corruption at the top, has looked the other way while the militants gained strength, and has ceded swaths of territory to them.
Given Pakistan’s complicity with the Taliban, it is foolhardy for the Obama administration to attempt to buy security. Money sent to Islamabad will fall into the wrong hands and come back to haunt the U.S. and its allies. It will be used in attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan; it will be used to terrorize India and Israel.
It is only a matter of time until the Taliban has imposed its ironclad will on the people of Pakistan, much as it did in Afghanistan before 9/11. U.S. bankrolling of a Pakistani regime rife with Taliban proxies will not succeed; it is like putting a Band-aid on leprosy. America needs to unite and work with nations that historically have been victims of jihad, not those that are its progenitors.
Radical Islam is implacable. Its ideology does not admit competitors. It is the enemy of democracy wherever it encounters it. The Islamists will not be content until they have Talibanized the world, imposing their fundamentalist variant of Sharia law on true believers and infidels alike. Terrorism is a means to that end for the Islamists, who have a long, successful history of ideological conquest. America’s “War on Terror” has erred by treating terrorism as an end in itself.
The time has come for the world’s infidels to unite against the tidal wave of jihad before it engulfs them. Because demographic conquest is the most permanent form of conquest, it is imperative that the West halt all immigration from Sharia-practicing nations before it is subverted from within.
The only lasting solution to the threat of universal jihad is to demilitarize, secularize and democratize the nations that promote it, specifically Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Unless this axis of jihad forgoes its fundamentalist and militarist theology and joins the world of secular humanity, the world will have no lasting peace. The West cannot buy its way out of this threat with another stimulus package.
