    ‘Islamic Imperialism’)

    Haven’t read the book but I am very familiar and respectful of prof Karsh.

    He agrees with my understanding that in order to understand Islam one must understand pre-Islamic ME cultures. Islam incorporated those cultures and changed little.

    Islamic Imperialism: A History

    by Efraim Karsh

    I’ll check to see if it’s an E Book and order it to my Kindle.

  2. Max Said:

    But since you, Mr “The MB is hiding under my bed” believes that the CIA is a branch of Al Qaeda I suggest you run! run ! and hide! – try China or Russia – – they might be safe for a while.

    The emptiness of your comments is demonstrated by the FACT that hysterical name calling and demonization, which are the weapons of fascists, constitute the bulk of most of your comments.

    Still waiting for ONE fact wrt to the 2 Aaron Klein articles which you ridiculed and which even congressmen discuss.

  3. Max Said:

    I don’t care about your impeccable logic with the arrows and diagrams proving 9-11 was an inside job or whatever.

    You appear delusional, unable to discern facts from your thoughts. I posted 2 articles written by Aaron Klein which were chock full of FACTS worthy of consideration, and which are receiving consideration in Congress,……these FACTS have nothing to do with MY logic or your delusions. Your comments ridiculed his articles without one single reference to any of his assertions…….Deal with the facts presented by him or be seen to be a charlatan and a fraud.

  4. M Devolin Said:

    May have a letter published in the National Post in the next few days. Will post it here.

    I look forward to reading it as I did your past articles.
    M Devolin Said:

    As I’m reading (‘Islamic Imperialism’) I’m wondering if you and Yamit have read his books. He’s amazing.

    I haven’t, perhaps yamit has.

  5. Max Said:

    As I pointed out before Mr. McCarthy-clone, .the CIA is on our side. I don’t know where your side is , probably on the other side of the moon

    you never answer direct questions. You said we all work as slaves for your “elite”, that we are owned by them. I asked you repeatedly where is your “elite” narrative wrt to this issue, you never answer. Now you say the CIA is on our side and the next minute the “elite” runs us and everything else. You are indeed schizoid or simply like ptolemy have designed a system that is an illusion.
    Max Said:

    I just happen to catch a few things but if i see your name I skip the posts

    rubbish, you commented on my posting of Kleins articles; you are a fake, a fraud. Furthermore, you have still not answered to one single assertion of fact postulated by Aaron Klein…..obviously you are ignorant on the issue beyond your sermons from your mount…which appears to be a rocking horse.

    when removing your name calling and sermonizing from your posts there is rarely anything left to discuss.

    Still waiting for ONE intelligent criticism or alternate theory….or indeed anything intelligible……..wrt Aaron Kleins 2 articles that I posted and which are chock full of facts to consider and which appear to collide with whatever mythical narrative you have devised to explain what went on in Benghazi and Libya. You appear to have a fundamental disconnect in your mind wrt reality and your theological beliefs, confusing facts with your beliefs about democracy and elites.

    his 3 years CIA training in Virginia and that he likely represents them right now.

    As I pointed out before Mr. McCarthy-clone, .the CIA is on our side. I don’t know where your side is , probably on the other side of the moon

    I just happen to catch a few things but if i see your name I skip the posts – they are all the same. I don’t care about your kitt3ns , I don’t care about your impeccable logic with the arrows and diagrams proving 9-11 was an inside job or whatever. You lack common sense, you got some kind of Obama hysterical syndrome. You got one note and you humorlessly sing it all the time Take a walk in the fresh air sometime , maybe you will feel better.

    ..

    If we had a Satan Virus we could get rid of them all – innocent and guilty, who cares – we survive – problem solved. But given reality we need and have both groups and governments we can work with and who will work with us and for us.

    But since you, Mr “The MB is hiding under my bed” believes that the CIA is a branch of Al Qaeda I suggest you run! run ! and hide! – try China or Russia – – they might be safe for a while.

  7. Been finishing up my firewood. That’s taken up a lot of my time. Been trying to read more when I’m so busy, thereby sacrificing my comment time on Israpundit. I miss you too, Mr. Ross. And I miss Yamit and Dove and Phoenix and Honeybee. May have a letter published in the National Post in the next few days. Will post it here. A lot happening with JDL Canada right now. Membership is growing by leaps and bounds. I’ve been reading Efraim Karsh. My niece’s boyfriend’s father is a personal friend of Prof. Karsh. As I’m reading (‘Islamic Imperialism’) I’m wondering if you and Yamit have read his books. He’s amazing. Hits the nail on the head about Islam. I’ve ordered another of his books, ‘Palestine Betrayed’, which has been opposed and excoriated by Benny Morris (before his turn around) and others. I highly recommend his books, Mr. Ross. I would love to hear what Yamit thinks of his work. He always sees things I seem to overlook.

    “If you are going to ridicule my posted article by Klein at least show that you can comment intelligently…” Well said, Mr. Ross.

    “Few men make themselves masters of the things they write or speak.” -John Selden

    thanks Mike, How are you, where have you been, missed your commentary.

  10. “The conventional view–absolving Middle Easterners and blaming the West–is academically unsound and morally reprehensible.” -Efraim Karsh

  11. “In the long history of Islamic empire, the wide gap between delusions of grandeur and centrifugal forces of localism would be bridged time and again by force of arms, making violence a key element of Islamic political culture to date.” -Efraim Karsh

  12. Max Said:

    This is all Greek to you of course BR, you are unable to see common everyday life through your Obama conspiracy glasses – take them off and join the real world.

    “common everyday life” in Libya is NOT the real story but the effects of the REAL story. dont bother mentioning Obama as he is just a puppet, a face man, as you yourself have already stated of US presidents.

    Read the very well researched articles I posted from Klein if you really want to learn something on Libya and how it relates to other events in the ME.
    What role do your elites play in Libya? 😛

  13. Max Said:

    There’s a world that exists outside of the WH and your conspiracy fanaticism about them. You are a bit like Senator McCarthy was in the 50?s.

    the biggest conspiracy theorist here is you with your conspiracies of the elite. However,you never support your theories whereas I do.

    You are a bit like Senator McCarthy was in the 50?s.

    more unsupported rubbish from a clueless fool who demostrates that he cannot make an intelligent comment.
    Max Said:

    General Hafter is still trying to destroy Libya Dawn. The West needs to give him some backing to keep the muzzle on Libyan Islamist – the majority of Lydians did and do not want an Islamist state but their chance at their desired Western type Society is Beverly under the gun.
    The Islamists have given Benghazi a lot of trouble especially assassinating important democracy oriented revolutionary figures In mind I remember the tragic and horrendous assassination of Abdul Fatah Younis.
    This is the real story of Benghazi. There have been a lot of strike backs aimed at extinguishing the Islamists and Jihadists there. This is the real and significantly important story of Benghazi.

    this narrative has nothing to do with the 2 articles I posted, your ludicrous trollish comment on them, and the enormous amount of facts contained in them. If you cannot comment on the facts contained therein you only prove what a clueless fool you are which you already proved when I confronted you in the past, you are clueless which is why you can only make fool childish comments and post a story about a couple of recent battles by a CIA proxy.
    This cutesy white knight hafter story you post is of no value at all as you ignore the most relevant characteristic of hafter which was his 3 years CIA training in Virginia and that he likely represents them right now. you always think, as you also did in your last analytical debacle of syria, that the useful idiots on the ground are the real makers of the wars and the outcomes. You are a fool if you think the real story is what the fools on the ground are doing. Your ludicrous stories of democratic revolution and arab springs show how incredibly naive you are. Hafter works for the same elite you always rant about dummy. You add nothing to understanding the significant developments in Libya and bengahazi because you tell your story from the pOV of the fighters on the ground who are clueless about who arms and funds them and for what purpose.

    You post this reuters link as a credible source of news in the ME and yet you appear incredibly unaware of the massive amount of disinformation and slanted news posted by Reuters wrt Israel, same with AP. those services tend to use local stringers who often fabricate the stories and the numbers(BY AYMAN AL-WARFALLI AND AHMED ELUMAMI are the “reporters” in this article)
    . the jenin “massacre” alone should tell you that and any other war Israel is involved in. Look at your foolish little post which begins yesterday in a story that goes back at least 3 years…..you only continue to demonstrate your total ignorance and the fact that your ideological theories completely color any factual comprehension you might have gleaned from your miniscule exposure to the issues.

    Haftar emerged as a renegade commander fighting Islamists

    really max???? even wikipedia does better than this where you can read about hafters past with the CIA and past coups against Gaddafi. don’t bother posting these childish and naive little vignettes of running battle commentary like you did in syria….
    sorry max, but that is not the REAL story.

    If you are going to ridicule my posted article by Klein at least show that you can comment intelligently on them and debunk the facts….I wager you cannot debunk one fact in those articles.

    Where does your elite fit into Libya and past and current events there? 😛

    BENGHAZI!

    Booya – look under the bed too. The MB might be there.

    You appear to be one of the few who raise a banner to their own ignorance, calling attention to the fact that they are clueless. Apparently, the fact that you have nothing to say is result of your lack of knowledge of the issue. The articles posted provide you with much to counter, and yet you have nothing to counter. What’s your line, do you tout the WH line on this or are you just a buffoon with nothing to add?

  16. @ ArnoldHarris:

    What I meant to write in my comment above was:

    So what, as long as the head-removals do not threaten the Jewish state or the Jewish nation?

    Which, by the way, is consistent with the kinds of policies I hope the Jewish state and Jewish nation shall adopt for life in an independent Jewish commonwealth.

    OBAMA COVERED MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TRACKS TO BENGHAZI
    Dodged political damage weeks before presidential election

    and then there is Hillary:

    Klein cites evidence Stevens himself played a central role in coordinating arms shipments to the gunmen fighting Assad’s regime, even helping an arms dealer named Marc Turi secure approval from the State Department to sell at least $200 million in weapons that were shipped via Qatar. Qatar was known to have helped to arm the rebels.

    “The REAL Benghazi Story” cites public reports showing Clinton, together with then-CIA Director David H. Petraeus, were the architects of a plan to arms the Libyan and Syrian rebels. The Clinton plan called for rebel groups to be vetted, trained and armed, utilizing countries such as Turkey and Qatar.

    Even the New York Times, in February 2013, described Clinton as one of the driving forces behind advocating a plan to arm the Syrian rebels. The newspaper quoted White House officials claiming they rejected the plan.

    “It is difficult to believe the White House rejected a plan proposed and supported by the Secretaries of State and Defense plus the CIA chief to boot,” writes Klein.

    Indeed, the particulars of Clinton’s plan for rebel groups to be vetted, trained and armed seems to have been implemented. The Times confirmed American-aided arms were shipped to the rebels since at least November 2012.

    The Times description of the arms shipments mirrors the exact plan as reportedly concocted by Clinton.

    The Times reported that since at least November 2012, the U.S. had been helping “the Arab governments shop for weapons, including a large procurement from Croatia, and have vetted rebel commanders and groups to determine who should receive the weapons as they arrive.”

  18. The long-distance range of my thinking cap tells me the day may well come when Israel and the Jewish nation shall find they are allied with one or more of these neighboring or nearby Islamic local powers in the civil wars that are the most distinctive and predictable characteristic of Islamic civilization.

    ISIS is one such Islamic power center. They chop off heads of their hostages. So what, as long as the head-removals threaten the Jewish state or the Jewish nation? My only interest, in anything to do with the Middle East in particular or the world in general, focuses on the long-term interests of the Jewish state and nation. Even if that involves our nation in alliance with some of the nastiest people in recent history. Long-term thinkers of Revisionist Zionism seriously thought of allying the Jewish Yishuv with Mussolini’s Fascist Italy. Would I have had a problem with that? Absolutely not.

    Remember: All these worldwide empires weaken, crumble, dissolve, and disappear. We have permanent interests. But nobody should imagine we have permanent allies.

  19. Watched it.
    I’d like to see this aired on CBC Canada prime time and endorsed by political leaders.
    What dreams may come.

    ….
    BTW I listened to an interview with Trudeau. He’s a dhminni, that doesn’t want to offend Muslims especially terrorist supporting Gaza and Lebanon immigrants. he will aid the cause of the anti-Israelis and the anti-Semites and Islamic Fascism if elected. He would be Canada’s Obama in the scope of his destruction.

    ..Actually – a sobering thought -the terrorist supporting immigrants in Canada and USA have now learned terrorist methods of aggression in their so called “protests” (Jihadist terrorizing activities). In effect they are being trained and honed to be “Armies of Allah”.
