He's not alone after all ...

Earlier this week I posted the remarks of right-wing politician Marco Pastors, who compared the islamization of the West with the rise of Nazism. Of course we didn't have to wait long for condemnation all round of such an unjust and fear-mongering comment.

But Elsevier is reporting this morning that General John Abizaid seems to agree. The American born general of Christian-Lebanese descent goes even further than that: in a speech at the Harvard University he made the same comparison, while warning that if the rise of fundamental Islam isn't curbed soon, a third World War is not a remote possibility. The West's lack of a sense of urgency gives them the opportunity to develop weapons of mass destruction at their ease, he said.
