The Soviet Union created Anti-American and Anti-Israeli Sentiment in the Muslim World

Week in Review

Jimmy Carter was a very weak president.  When he took over fighting the Cold War he stopped fighting it.  Choosing détente instead.  Making nice with our enemies.  And weakened the U.S. military.  It got so bad that the Soviets didn’t believe he had the guts to launch his nuclear weapons.  Thinking that perhaps MAD (mutually assured destruction) wasn’t so assured anymore.  And began formulating a nuclear first-strike plan.  Bringing the United States close to nuclear war.  Because our enemies viewed him as weak.

Then came Ronald Reagan.  Who reversed the Carter decline.  And made our enemies fear and respect us once again.  Choosing to win the Cold War instead of making nice with our enemies.  As communism was a wretched system that enslaved her people who yearned to breathe free.  Exporting its oppression wherever it could throughout the world.  Where we’re feeling the fallout to this day.  Thanks to Jimmy Carter making nice to our enemy (see EXCLUSIVE: New book reveals how KGB operation seeded Muslim countries with anti-American, anti-Jewish propaganda during the 1970s, laying the groundwork for Islamist terrorism against U.S. and Israel by David Martosko posted 6/25/2013 on the Daily Mail).

The highest-ranking Soviet-bloc intelligence officer ever to defect to the West claims in a new book that anti-American Islamic terrorism had its roots in a secret 1970s-era KGB plot to harm but the United States and Israel by seeding Muslim countries with carefully targeted propaganda.

Yuri Andropov, the KGB chief for 15 years before he became the Soviet premier, sent hundreds of agents and thousands of copies of propaganda literature to Muslim countries.

‘By 1972,’ according to the book, ‘Andropov’s disinformation machinery was working around the clock to persuade the Islamic world that Israel and the United States intended to transform the rest of the world into a Zionist fiefdom…’

Andropov began his leadership of the KGB just months before the 1967 Six-Day War between Arabs and Israelis, in which Israel humiliated the key Soviet allies Syria and Egypt. And he decided to settle the score by training Palestinian militants to hijack El Al airplanes and bomb sites in Jerusalem.

But more shocking, Andropov commissioned the first Arabic translation of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Russian-forged 1905 propaganda book that alleged Jews were plotting to take over Europe – and were being aided by the United States…

Kennedy-era Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev’s disinformation campaigns ‘widened the gap between Christianity and Judaism,’ according to the authors. And ‘Andropov’s disinformation turned the Islamic world against the United States and ignited the international terrorism that threatens us today.’

This is the enemy that Jimmy Carter was trying to make nice to.  One that was widening the gap between Christianity and Judaism.  And one that was turning the Islamic world against the United States.  Which the Soviets did well.  Giving us the mess we have today.

The Soviet Union was officially an atheist state.  Who shut down the Russian Orthodox Church.  As they wanted no other powers or influences over their people’s lives.  Which is why they had no problem putting the major world religions at war with each other.  And explains why today the Russians always seem to fall on the side against the U.S. and Israel.  For they worked hard to foment that anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment.  And Vladimir Putin was once KGB.  The machine that created this sentiment.  And apparently he still wants to collect the dividends from their old Soviet-era allies.

So it appears that the War on Terror is nothing more than the Cold War redux.  It’s not a rogue power that filled a vacuum left by the Soviet collapse.  But a power that the Soviets created maturing at the time of the Soviet collapse.  Too late to help them not lose the Cold War to Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.  But perhaps not too late to further expand Russian power over their Soviet-era allies.  Thanks to that anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment inflaming the Islamic world.  The Soviets made them our enemy.  Not any YouTube video.  Or George W. Bush.  And no amount of making nice to them is going to change that.

The Poles recognize Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II for their Role in Winning the Cold War

Posted by PITHOCRATES - July 14th, 2012

Week in Review

Jimmy Carter believed in detente.  He wanted to work with the communists in the Soviet Union.  Those living in Eastern Europe disagreed.  As they lived under the boot of Soviet oppression.  They wanted their liberty.  They didn’t want to hear Jimmy Carter talk about making nice with the Soviets.  Because they didn’t want to improve their relations with the Soviet Union.  They wanted the Soviet Union the hell out of their countries.  Others agreed with them.  Ronald Reagan.  Margaret Thatcher.  The dynamic duo.  A Polish Pope.  John Paul II.  A Polish union leader.  Lech Walesa.  Leader of the Solidarity movement.  And a great people.  The Poles (see Poles honor Reagan and John Paul II for their role in anti-communist struggle with new statue by Associated Press posted 7/14/2012 on The Washington Post).

Polish officials unveiled a statue of former President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II on Saturday, honoring two men widely credited in this Eastern European country with helping to topple communism 23 years ago…

Reagan and John Paul shared a conviction that communism was a moral evil, not just a bad economic system. And Lech Walesa, founder of the Solidarity movement that led the anti-communist struggle in Poland, has often paid homage to both men and told the AP in a recent interview that he deeply respected Reagan…

Poles widely credit the Polish-born pontiff’s first visit to his homeland after becoming pope as the inspiration for Solidarity’s birth. During a Mass in Warsaw in 1979, he used subtle language to suggest that Poles should try to change their system, a message not lost on the receptive nation. Poles also remember that when the communist regime imposed the martial law crackdown in 1981, rounding up dissidents and imprisoning them, Reagan lit candles at the White House to show his solidarity with the Polish people…

Another member of the organization, Andrzej Michalowski, credited Reagan’s arms race with Moscow with leading to the unraveling of the Soviet Union and its inability to keep controlling Eastern Europe. He said the monument was designed on a small scale so visitors to the park would feel John Paul and Reagan are still with them.

Much to the horror of those on the Left Ronald Reagan did not follow Carter’s policy of detente.  He didn’t want to make nice with the Soviets.  He wanted to defeat the Soviets.  And free people everywhere from the boot of communist oppression.  And he did.  Thanks to John Paul, Lech Walesa and Margaret Thatcher.  The British and the Americans presented the Soviets a fearful military force to ponder.  And supported the poles as they dared to defy the great Soviet bear. 

Few even know this history today.  But back then these were transformative times.  For it was the beginning of the end of the Cold War.  A war we won by not trying to get along with the Soviets.  But by aggressively attacking communism.  Calling the Soviet Union the Evil Empire.  For it was.  As anyone living in Poland during the Cold War will attest to.  There was nothing good or redeeming about communism.  And Carter’s policy of detente only breathed life into a dying corpse.  And delayed the inevitable.  As Lech Walesa knew.  As John Paul knew.  As Ronald Reagan knew.  For it was only a matter of time before communism was left on the ash heap of history.  And thanks to these people that time did come.  The Soviet Union is no more.  And Eastern Europe is now free.
