Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

As Iranians Are Told To Bring Jihad To "The Heart Of Europe," Something Rotten Stirs In The State Of Denmark

The hard-left is all about destruction of society as we know it, which I suppose drives the bizarre alliance that far leftists have forged over recent decades with another totalitarian force dedicated to destroying western civilisation, radical Islam.

An utterly bizarre alliance indeed, of course, since for one thing the far left is atheistic, condemning religion as atavistic and irrational ("the opium of the people") and despising its followers as benighted and superstitious, and for another thing the far-left is avowedly egalitarian, upholding the rights of women against "patriarchal tyranny".

It's long been predicted that Iran's Revolution of 1979, which exchanged the rule of the Shah for that of the mullahs, will prove far more reaching in its effects, geographically and culturally, than was the French Revolution of 1789, itself a seminal event in world history, at least as far as the Western Hemisphere was concerned.

The dedication of radical Islam to the destruction of  non-Muslim civilisation is clearly seen in a chilling video of the speech on 23 September in which an influential Iranian, Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi, an ideologue close to the ruling administration, outlined his thoughts on the future direction of Iran's foreign policy, and exhorted war veterans to prepare to take the Islamic struggle everywhere, including "the heart of Europe".

Azghadi shows every sign of being as zealous as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, even down to the belief in the eventual coming of the Twelfth Imam, and the necessary prelude to that event, about which I've blogged here and here.

And the bizarre antics of Islamism's far-left allies is clearly seen in the recent decision of the leftist-dominated Copenhagen city council to permit the construction of a huge mega-mosque funded by an Iranian radical Shia organisation:
'Unlike most mosques in Europe, which cater to Sunni Muslims, the mosque in Copenhagen pertains to Shia Islam. The mosque is being financed by the Islamic Republic of Iran; critics say that theocrats in Tehran intend to use the mosque to establish a recruiting center for the militant Shia Muslim group, Hezbollah in Europe.
Critics of the Shia mosque have warned local politicians that the building will be owned by the Iranian regime for use as a propaganda center as well as a platform from which to recruit impressionable Muslim immigrant youths for service to Hezbollah. But the Copenhagen city council states that who pays for building the mosque is none of its concern.
The Copenhagen mosque is, in fact, being built by the Ahlul Beit Foundation, a radical Shia Muslim proselytizing and political lobbying group run by the Iranian government. Ahlul Beit already runs around 70 Islamic centers around the world, and has, as its primary goal, the promoting of the religious and political views of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Ahlul-Beit is opposed to all brands of Islam that compete with the form of Islam dictated by theocrats in Iran: the organization has called for the persecution of Sunni Muslims, Sufi Muslims, and Alawites as well as all secular and moderate Muslims. The organization is also vociferously opposed to the integration of Muslim immigrants into their host societies.
Ahlul Beit is especially focused on spreading Islamic Sharia law beyond the Middle East; its centers in Africa and Asia, for example, have been used to radicalize local Muslim communities. In a typical quid-pro-quo arrangement, the organization offers money to the poor who then convert to Shia Islam and are subjected to religious training by Iranian-backed Imams. The group has been banned in at least a dozen countries.
In Europe, Ahlul Beit mosques are usually presented to the general public as centers for cultural and sports activities, but in practice they are often used by Iranian intelligence to monitor Iranians living abroad as well as to harass Iranian dissidents.'

  1. There is much less distance between the nasty old authoritarian left and radical Islamism than you might think. They are natural allies and they start with the same premise about the West. Ultimately they will go to war of course but for now they look at each other and see kindred spirits.

  2. Superb poster at the top. If only it were really like that... (sigh).

    Someone forgot the Anzacs!

  3. Wow. Can the Danes really be so short-sighted?

    In a way, though, this comforts me - I thought only Jews were stupid and self-hating enough to openly arm their enemy and invite him into their house.

  4. "nasty old authoritarian left" - that's the phrase I needed! Thanks, geoffff.

    Ian, indeed they did!

    Satiri, the Brits are masters of that particular art as well.

  5. The left have been quite disappointed with the unwillingness of the Australian proles to join them in the glorious workers revolution, so have instead used multiculturalism and mass immigration to import a new proletariat and in the case of Islam, a weaponised proletariat. They imagine they can control the Islamic crocodile but in reality, as previously demonstrated in aftermath of the Iranian revolution, is that they'll simply be eaten last.

  6. And the flirtation of the rad fems with the misogynists is a repulsive sight to behold, Darrin!

  7. Interesting you should mention that Daphane. Uber fembot Susan Okin once opined that it was acceptable for women to be treated the way they are under Shari'a as long as they had "realistic exit options" from that culture within a multicultural state, but what exit options does a little girl have when confronted by an uncle with a rusty razor blade whilst being held down by her grand mother? Or comments by Lara Logan that what happened to her could have been committed by any male? I wonder what her husband or father thought about that?

  8. These so-called feminists who perform pretzel-pose acrobatics on the issue of women's status under Islamic law are the absolute limit, Darrin. In the UK around 20,000 Muslim men enjoy - courtesy of state benefits - up to five (sic!) wives, yet they radical feminists say nothing, and neither does a craven government.


    Speech is by Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi, a member of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution in Iran.

    Renowned Islamic Ideologue Defines Iran's Foreign Policy

    Web page of another instance of the video clip:’s-foreign-policy

    (I found out about this video from a post on the blog Vlad Tepes ( (Post title: "The cost of exposing Iranian ambitions"))

    I read, on that post on the blog Vlad Tepes, and on the page of the secondly listed instance of the video, that the website on which this video was originally hosted was seriously hacked shortly after this video was posted there.

    PLEASE BE AWARE: I think that visiting the hacked original site which hosted the video, the site, may compromise any computer that visits it, or may, at least, record, and provide to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRIGC), the ip address of any computer that visits it.

  10. Phew!!!
    Thanks for that warning, Daniel.
