Normally, I don’t simply link to articles that I like. I think my primary job as a blogger is to present original material.
But sometimes a piece is so important that anything I can do to get others to read it is justified. And this is one of those times.
One civilization clashing
by Caroline Glick
On June 7 Hizbullah will likely take over Lebanon and formally bring the oldest Arab democracy into the Iranian axis.
Iran’s stalking horse will not become the ruler of the largely pro-Western, non-Shi’ite majority country through a violent revolution. Lebanon will become yet another Iranian vassal state through ballots, not bullets. On June 7, Hizbullah and its allied parties are set to win a smashing popular victory in Lebanon’s parliamentary elections.
Hizbullah’s projected victory in these elections is of course not an isolated event. It is part of an Islamist electoral sweep in democratic elections throughout the region. Indeed, Islamists have won every free or partially free election in the region for the past six years.
