Let’s start the new year with a tragic tale involving appeasement, Western naïveté, Nazis, Mohammedan fanatics, political correctness, nuclear weapons and impending doom.
The Muslim Brotherhood, which took over Egypt while most of you were playing with your iPads and watching Jersey Shore, are the new Nazis. The Brotherhood’s cronies in Iran are feverishly working on nuclear weapons.
One nuclear bomb is worth 100 Panzer divisions.
They want to take over the world. If you don’t knuckle under, you will be killed. If you are Jew, gypsy or gay, you will be killed no matter what.
If you are a woman, you will be covered, head to toe, with a sheet, kept indoors and denied an education. You are fit only for breeding and forming falafel balls.
World domination is their goal, and God is on their side. They call him Allah. There is no fanatic as fanatical as a fanatic with God whispering into his ear.
Most Muslims who live in the Arab world are not like that, you say. Most are moderates. Keep believing it.
There were moderates in 1930s Germany too. Did they speak out loudly? Would it have done any good if they had?
Do you remember the cheering, flag-burning mobs filling the Arab streets after their infamous September 11 attack? They hate you.
They hate tolerance. They hate other religions. They hate other cultures. They hate Western notions of liberty. They loathe everything about you.

Political correctness, which has paralyzed the Western mind, demands tolerance, and tolerant we are. Neville Chamberlain was a tolerant man. The West is very tolerant when it comes to Mohammedan fanaticism.
We must accept other cultures politely! That is our religion.
A revised U.S. Army Handbook, out just this week in reaction to increasing cases of Afghan security forces — people on our side — killing American servicemen, now requires this of U.S. troops serving in that hapless nation:
1. Say nothing related to Islam.
2. Mention no other religion.
3. Don’t diss the Taliban. (Huh? They’re shooting at us!)
4. Don’t say women are as good as men.
5. Don’t mention homosexuality.
This is appeasement. Our Afghan “allies,” of course, can say whatever they wish, knowing U.S. troops will not shoot them for their opinions.
This is part of our silly politically correct rule not to offend others. Alas, those others do not subscribe to this philosophy at all.
While we show them tolerance, gag ourselves about religion, women’s rights, gay rights, the beauty of Liberty, their legions in Iran work on nuclear weapons.
Neville Chamberlain would recognize our times.
And America, the most financially busted nation in the history of the world, continues to send $1.5 billion annually, via its Chinese Mastercard, to Egypt, now run by Islamist fanatics.
The Arab Spring quickly faded to a cold, gray Winter.

The Western nations have known little to no actual threat to their existence since 1945, and most people alive today were born later. We are spoiled, trivial, childish and psychologically unable to recognize real peril.
We know nothing of history. We are weak-willed ignoramuses.
To make matters worse, we’ve been brainwashed to idolize other cultures and religions while getting wishy-washy and even contemptuous of our own.
Islamist fanaticism and hate combined with our naïveté and trivialty have created conditions for what one might call a perfect storm.
Happy new year.
