Several days ago, CNN broadcast in the United States a Glenn Beck special entitled: "Exposed: The Extremist Agenda." The show featured several shocking video clips of sheikhs being cheered as they vow to "cut off the Jew’s head," Iranian President Ahmedinejad preaching hatred and threatening war against the West, and little children expressing the abhorrence for Jews with which they have imbued.
Beck, whose syndicated radio show is broadcast on 200 stations around the United States, emphasizes throughout the program that the American people are simply not aware of the threat posed to them by radical Islam. He and his guests attribute this to purposeful camouflaging of the message by people such as Ahmedinejad, the American tendency towards political correctness, and dangerous complacency similar to that of the 1930’s in the face of the Nazi menace.
The entire show can be seen at "www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PWIK8YTZS8&eurl="
The show begins with a wildly dramatic sheikh preaching to a large crowd in a Baghdad mosque and railing against "the Americans and their president and the British and their allies and the Zionists, the spoiled offspring of this entity! [The sheikh says:] Allahu Akbar! If Allah permits us, O Nation of Mohammad, even the stone will say, ‘O Muslim, a Jew is hiding behind me, come and cut off his head,’ and we shall cut off his head! By Allah [brandishing a sword], we shall cut it off! [scenes of a cheering audience] O Jews, Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Jihad for the sake of Allah! Victory to Allah! Allahu Akbar! The believers [Muslims] will triumph!"
Scenes of television programs purporting to show Israelis stealing Palestinian children’s eyes, punching old women, and stealing Arab blood are shown. State-owned media in Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority run cartoons of US President Bush, Secretary of State Rice and Ariel Sharon dripping with blood and the like. "News reports" are shown reporting as fact items such as Coca-Cola’s willingness to spend billions of dollars to topple Iran, or the "fact" that Pepsi stands for ‘Pay Each Penny, Save Israel.’
Beck’s background commentary states: "Coca-Cola wants to topple Iran. Obviously ridiculous. But the average Iranian citizen has no reason not to believe these claims."
Iranian President Ahmadinejad
Beck later says, "Iran’s President Ahmadinejad has recently said that his country’s nuclear program will be up and running by the end of March… The International Atomic Energy Agency has found traces of plutonium and enriched uranium at an Iranian nuclear waste site. Still, there are those who say that Iran should be a partner in constructing the future of the Middle East. Those people are probably only seeing the flowery interviews Ahmadinejad has given to Brian Williams or Mike Wallace here in the U.S. Unfortunately, as many of you will see now for the very first time, they are not hearing the whole story."
Iranian President Ahmadinejad in an interview: "Our message is the message of peace and brotherhood with all nations, with all people. We love the American people as we love our own."
Ahmadinejad in a speech in Iran: "If you want to have good relations with the Iranian people in the future, you should acknowledge the right and the might of the Iranian people. If you do not accept this, the Iranian people will force you to bow and surrender!"
Ahmadinejad in an interview: "So what I’m saying is quite fair. We want peace to be established there [in Israel]. We care for the Jews who live under pressure there, as well."
Ahmadinejad in a speech in Iran: "I have said to the leaders of some western countries, stop supporting these corrupt people. Behold the rage of the Muslim people is accumulating! The rage of the Muslim people may soon reach the point of explosion!"
Cheering crowd: "Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to America! Death to America!"
A commentator: "I think the threat that he [Ahmadinejad] poses is similar to the threat posed in the rise of Hitler in the 1930s when the world just sat relatively silent, silently watching Germany arm itself, watching Germany pose a threat and ultimately carry out that threat against its neighbors, and the world reacted much too late."
Binyamin Netanyahu, Author of Terrorism: How the West Can Win
Interviewing former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Beck says: "You have said in a speech in Los Angeles that this is 1938 all over again and they are preparing a Holocaust, the second Holocaust. How frustrating is it that you can’t get people to pay attention to that?"
Netanyahu: "It’s frustrating. It makes you understand how the `30s happened, because Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, is openly saying, while he denies the original Holocaust, he’s openly saying that he’s preparing another Holocaust to wipe Israel off the face of the earth with Iranian atomic bombs.
Beck: "I talked to Condoleezza Rice, and… I said, ‘Look, this has not stopped. This guy has a doomsday apocalyptic view. He is clearly saying it.’ And she said to me that we need to take him at his word but watch his actions, not necessarily all of his words. I think that’s suicide."
Netanyahu: "I think we should watch his actions and listen to his words. His words are matched by his actions. Iran is racing to build power plants, nuclear power plants. They have more oil coming out of their ears. They don’t need nuclear power plants… They need and are seeking to build nuclear weapons. I believe the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, just found traces of plutonium and uranium for the production of atomic bombs. These bombs are, in the first instance, aimed at Israel. Make no mistake about it. But they don’t intend to just hit Israel. Iran is gearing up to produce 25 atomic bombs a year, 250 bombs in a decade. The missiles already reach into every European capital and they are blooming to reach the eastern seaboard of the United States, i.e., New York City, the studio we’re sitting in. So this is like Nazism: they start with the hatred of the Jews, and they want to annihilate the Jews. But that’s only the first stop. Their goal is western civilization."
Beck: "…This man has an apocalyptic view. He has already said that he wants to march in through ancient Babylon and set up a global Islamic empire. Do you believe that? Do you believe this guy has that apocalyptic doomsday view?"
Netanyahu: "I read an interview with a Holocaust survivor about a year ago in one of the European papers. And the interviewer asked the Holocaust survivor, ‘What is your main lesson from the Holocaust?’ And the Holocaust survivor said, ‘My main lesson is that if somebody tells you he’s going to exterminate you, believe him.’ I believe that the president of Iran intends to exterminate Israel."
Suicide Bombers to Hit U.S.
Apparently-genuine video clips are shown of Moslem terrorists setting out on suicide-bombing missions, with background commentary emphasizing such attacks as "the ultimate smart bomb," "the most perfect precision weapon of our time," and "the apotheosis of hatred."
U.S. Army Lt.-Col. Ralph Peters sums up, "You’ve got religious faith, primal hatred and the promise of ecstasy combined… What a powerful, powerful incentive to kill yourself and be a martyr to your family, to your friends, to your civilization, to your god."
Beck: "Although suicide bombers have been used in parts of the Middle East for years, some people believe that, because of how effective they are at spreading fear, it’s only a matter of time before the phenomenon reaches the U.S."
The Moslem founder of Arabs for Israel and outspoken daughter of a Moslem shahid (martyr), Nonie Darwish: "Americans must realize the danger. It’s very important we understand it is a major fight, and it [crept up] on us. We didn’t take it seriously. And now after 9/11, we must take it seriously."
Walid Shoebat, former terrorist: "[When] I was 6 years old, all kids [in kindergarten had] to sing a song, it was called, ‘Arabs are Beloved, and Jews are Dogs’ … By the time you got to high school, the songs got even more… calling the Jews all killers."
Beck (voice-over): "By hiding propaganda in songs, children almost become immune to what they’re actually saying. And when children hear the same propaganda in their songs as they do from their parents, it quickly becomes fact. Listen to this Kuwaiti sheikh preaching to parents about what to teach their children."
Sheikh: "O mothers and fathers, you must train your children every night before they go to bed to go on raids in order to liberate Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa. And when he goes to sleep after reading the Koran and the bedside verses, they should recite together with you the prayer of martyrdom, ‘Allah, I pray to you in all honesty to be martyred for your sake.’ Do this every night."
Beck, introducing Brigitte Gabriel: "She grew up in Lebanon, was a victim early on of radical Islam. She`s now a U.S. citizen and author of a new, bestselling book, ‘Because They Hate.’"
Gabriel reads from a text book that describes "Jews and Christians cursed by Allah and turned into apes and pigs… The lesson explains that Jews and Christians have sinned by accepting polytheism and, therefore, incurred Allah’s wrath. To punish them, Allah had turned them into apes and pigs… This is what the West needs to understand and realize about Islam. We are dealing with a radical ideology right now spreading all throughout the world with one goal, and that is the establishing of an Islamic caliphate throughout the world."
Beck: "Wait, explain that, because most people don’t even know what that is."
Gabriel: "A caliphate is an Islamic government ruled by Sharia law where everybody has to obey and live under Islam. In Islam, there is no difference between the state and the religion. The religion is the state, and the state is the religion… And this is why we are seeing suicide bombers right now who are spreading throughout the world, screaming, ‘Allahu Akbar’ as their last words, praising Allah as they die and go to Heaven. But this is what they’re taught from the time they were little, from the time they were children… Our [Lebanese] government, which controlled the media – what we used to watch on television at night was ‘Israel is the Name of the Devil,’ ‘The Jews are Evil,’ and ‘The Jews are Barbaric.’ The only time we will have peace in the Middle East is when we kill all of the Jews and throw them into the sea. This was the propaganda being espoused all throughout the media."
Gabriel: "…Political correctness is killing us. Political correctness is the disease that is killing the West. It is the apathy by which the Muslims are killing us one by one. We have got to throw it in the garbage where it belongs. People have to develop the backbone to stand up and identify the enemy, because the West right now is plagued with Islamofascism, a disease worse than cancer, that is going to kill our body unless we fight it and kill it first. And unless people come to that understanding — and hopefully we [won’t] have to suffer a nuclear attack on American soil nor on British soil or any other westernized nation — but this is where we’re heading. And the media is the first front in getting the message to the American public, and it is their duty to do that."
