World War II Islam and Modern Islam: Know Thy Enemy

At the end of his eminently important and succinct book, titled Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War, author Dr. Sebastian Gorka includes the original secret telegram written in 1946 at the onset of the Cold War, wherein the American diplomat and Russia expert George Kennan explains “how the behavior of the Soviet Union cannot be understood unless an individual understands the totalitarian ideology that drives it.  This ‘fanatical’ ideology of communism is absolutist and global and will not countenance peaceful coexistence with America or any democracy.”  Keenan describes how “Democratic-progressive” elements abroad are to be utilized to maximum to bring pressure to bear on capitalist governments along lines agreeable to Soviet interests.”

    Everybody writes about “Know Thy Enemy”.
    It has been done time and time again.
    The clever ” The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is just war strategy.
    Did you ever hear about “Know THY Friend” ?
    No. You don’t. It means the same thing.
    It just doesn’t hit the same political Resonance.

    The WEST appears to be oblivious to our Enemies– and ignorantly patronizing to
    Our Friends.
    Not GOOD.

    NONE—is my bet. But– they will ALL practice —
    “The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend”

    It is an easy way to keep a 2-faced persona–
    If you are an Idiot.
