Classic Curves

At War

Muslim Leader Admits Islam Not a Religion of Peace

Great allies in the war against jihadists

a web comment:

This is really outrageous on a number of levels, not only because this is a minister of a supposed “moderate” Muslim country to which Australia gives billions in aid, but it’s a direct endorsement of violence. It’s also outrageous that this story is so far ignored in western media. Could you image the response if this endorsement was made towards Australia or the USA? But hey it’s only the Israel… Australia must not only condem what Patrialis Akbar has said, but all aid to Indonesia must be withheld until Patrialis Akbar is sacked.

60th for Korea War

Remembering the Korean War, 60 years ago

This Friday, June 25th, it will have been sixty years since the beginning of the Korean War in 1950. After decades of Japanese occupation, Korea was divided in two by Allied Forces at the end of World War II, with the south administered by the U.S. and the north by Soviet Russia.

A Fully Fledged Western Nation - Israel


The following article by the former Spanish Prime Minister José María Aznarwas published in the British newspaper 'The Times' on 17 June 2010:

Anger over Gaza is a distraction. We cannot forget that Israel is the West’s best ally in a turbulent region
By José María Aznar

For far too long now it has been unfashionable in Europe to speak up for Israel. In the wake of the recent incident on board a ship full of anti-Israeli activists in the Mediterranean, it is hard to think of a more unpopular cause to champion.
In an ideal world, the assault by Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara would not have ended up with nine dead and a score wounded. In an ideal world, the soldiers would have been peacefully welcomed on to the ship. In an ideal world, no state, let alone a recent ally of Israel such as Turkey, would have sponsored and organised a flotilla whose sole purpose was to create an impossible situation for Israel: making it choose between giving up its security policy and the naval blockade, or risking the wrath of the world.

In our dealings with Israel, we must blow away the red mists of anger that too often cloud our judgment. A reasonable and balanced approach should encapsulate the following realities: first, the state of Israel was created by a decision of the UN. Its legitimacy, therefore, should not be in question. Israel is a nation with deeply rooted democratic institutions. It is a dynamic and open society that has repeatedly excelled in culture, science and technology.

Second, owing to its roots, history, and values, Israel is a fully fledged Western nation. Indeed, it is a normal Western nation, but one confronted by abnormal circumstances.

Hyper Emergency

  • June 02, 2010 12:00AM
NOTHING more to be said. Israeli soldiers kill at least nine peace activists trying to ship aid to a starving people.
Or as the front page of The Age screamed: "Israel kills boat protesters."
End of story. There are immediate riots and protests against this appalling brutality in London, Paris, New York, Istanbul, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and throughout the Middle East.
The United Nations whacks Israel and calls for an emergency meeting of the Security Council. And from Moscow to Washington, Israel stands utterly friendless. Dangerously alone.
What a coup for those pledged to the destruction of that tiny Jewish country. How discredited and invitingly defenceless Israel now seems. Someone couldn't have scripted this any better.
Well, almost no better, because even the journalists most sympathetic to the activists on the six ships intercepted on Monday by Israel couldn't help but refer, albeit grudgingly, to a couple of untidy details too obvious to ignore.
ABC radio host Jon Faine, for instance, described these poor victims of Zionist aggression as "humanitarian activists with a few knives".
Er, with knives? Humanitarians?

THIS may turn out to be a pivotal moment in the Middle East.
Not because of the loss of life, which was tragic, but alas not uncommon in the Middle East.
Not because of the public relations disaster for Israel.
The Jewish state was sucker-punched by demonstrators determined to provoke an ugly Israeli reaction and international PR disaster.
By beating Israeli sailors nearly to death as soon as they landed, the protesters made a violent reaction inevitable. You cannot attempt to kill armed soldiers without suffering casualties.
Nor is the real significance of this incident that there will be another global round of Israel-bashing. That happens all the time.
No, the real strategic significance of the violence off the northern coast of Israel lies in Turkey.

History demonstrates that destruction awaits those who attempt to placate their enemies by surrendering their weapons. In 149 BC, half a million citizens of Carthage tried to appease Rome by turning over their armaments. But instead of buying peace, they only facilitated their own destruction. Ninety percent of the Carthaginians were killed, and the city of Carthage was razed. Those who survived were sold into slavery, and Carthaginian civilization was forever wiped from the face of the earth. The story of how the Carthaginians sealed their fate by delivering their weapons into the hands of their enemy is chronicled in my book, Science and Technology in World History, Vol. 1.
