Islamist Encirclement of Israel Ignored?

Step by step, rebellion by rebellion, Israel is being encircled by Islamists--with the support of the West, including the Obama administration, which is pursuing an overtly pro-Muslim Brotherhood foreign policy.

Turkey's government is Islamist. The Turkish military, traditional guardian of the secular state system, has been purged, prevented from saving the nation.

Egypt is in Islamist hands; it's just a matter of time before the Egyptian army is Islamized.

Syria is on the verge of being taken over by Islamists.

Islamist Iran's Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, rules Lebanon.

Gaza is firmly in the Islamist grip, partly owing to the Bush administration's idiotic "democracy promotion" project, which helped bring Hitlerian Hamas to power there. The group, which is an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, threatens to take over the Palestinian-run areas of the so-called West Bank--the disputed territories west of the Jordan River that Israel captured from Jordan during the Six-Day War.

On the eastern bank of the river, the Hashemite monarchy is threatened by the Muslim Brotherhood. The king could eventually be betrayed and abandoned by Washington, the way Iran's Shah, a modernizing monarch, was betrayed and abandoned, and Egypt's President Mubarak, a U.S. ally for three decades, was betrayed and abandoned.
