WILL EXTREMIST NUCLEAR ATTACK ON U.S. SPARK A HOLOCAUST?
The fear is spreading among
"enlightened? Muslims that if Islamic extremists succeed in attacking an
American city with a nuclear device, the U.S. will have no choice but to surmise
that the device was provided by Iraq. Consequently, the immediate response would
be a nuclear assault on Baghdad and perhaps other Iraqi cities.
Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda in particular---have been seeking to provoke such a
massive American response so as to inflame the entire Moslem world, igniting it
into a jihad against the West. Such a war between Islam and the infidels of the
world, of course, is the aim of the extremists.
"Enlightened? Muslims worry that this jihad could quickly evolve into a thermonuclear holocaust. Nuclear-armed Hindu India could take such an eventuality as a go-ahead for a first strike against
Moslem Pakistan, haven for
a large militant Islamic population. Could the entrance of Russia and China into
the war be far behind?
That such a thermonuclear
holocaust might spell doom for humankind appears to be of little concern to Arab
extremists, who regard doom as a quick trip to Islamic Paradise.
Apparently, the Arab
'street? either can't or won't grasp all the possible eventualities of
drastic terrorism, but more enlightened Muslims have begun to express alarm.
Such as the Palestinians who have tried to warn their countrymen that continued
random murder of Israelis will not hasten the establishment of a Palestinian
Can the so-called
"enlightened? Muslims win the Arab 'street? away from the extremists?
There are those among them who fear that is the only hope for the world.
