Exposing the Contradictions within the islamist-Communist Alliance

It is a striking fact of post-9/11 history, that following its defeat in the Cold War the American and global left has rejuvenated itself through its opposition to the War on Terror. It has thus launched what will possibly be another twenty year "revolution" against the cause of freedom, equally as futile and potentially even more destructive than its efforts on behalf of the now defeated and defunct Communist empire.

The leftist and Communist view of America is so negative as to justify their opposition to a war for the freedom of 25 million Muslims (from the tyranny of Islam) and the future of democracy in the Middle East. The different facets of this Islamist-Communist alliance are a kind of Humpty-Dumptyism."

The left is an Anti-American cult. The same is true of its nihilism, which is universal in the left. Qualities they share with the Islamists. This is the binding glue based on the Communist negativism of hate for free-economy of the West along with the Islamists fear that globalization would lead to erosion of Islam though its globalizing impact. Thus the atheistic Communists and the fervent theology-inspired Muslim maniacs, gay and women's liberation adovcating Commies and gay basher and women basher Mussies, both of whom have a totalitarian vision of a doctrinnaire dictatorship, based on the Shariah and the Quran for the Muslims and on Das Kapital and the Communist Manefisto for the Communists make these two strange bedfellows come together with the common aim of threatening the free and civilized way of life.

Today the left is still divided over its plans for the future, but these plans pale into insignificance in terms of its real passion which is its nihilistic antagonism towards the United States the metropolis at the center of the global capitalist system. Its overweening hatred of global capitalism – "globalization" – which is its energizing force, explains how it can make opportunistic alliances with Islamic fundamentalists who share the same enemy. The World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the targets of Osama Bin Laden are not coincidently the very symbols of globalization and the American-led world capitalist system of a free economy that the communists hate.

The hydra-headed Islamist-Communist Alliance - A threat to civilization

As in the last decades of the Cold War, when it did not exactly embrace the Communist enemies but instead "critically supported" them, the left does not exactly embrace the Islamist terrorists today. But it does the next best thing by offering them critical support in the form of apologetics for their savagery ("root causes" etc.), by mounting relentless attacks on America's defenses (the Patriot Act), diversionary and morale-sapping propaganda campaigns over Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib and even a political movement to sabotage the military effort to liberate Iraq (the "Counter- Recruitment campaign on America's college and high school campuses). Unholy Alliance is an attempt to understand this phenomenon: to explain the paradox of a left that thinks of itself as "progressive" but which has once again entered into an unholy alliance with the most reactionary and oppressive forces on the planet.

Why have American radicals actively obstructed the war on terror..? Why have liberals opposed Operation Iraqi Freedom whose goals are the overthrow of tyranny and the establishment of political democracy and human rights—agendas that coincide with their own? Why have Democrats turned against the policy of regime change, which they had supported during the Clinton administration in both Kosova and Iraq? Why has the Democratic Party declared political war on the President's war and thus made foreign policy a point of partisan conflict?...

These are the questions this article seeks to address. In doing so, we necessarily must confront others: What is the nature of the American left? How does it think about the world? How did it come to ally itself with Islamic jihad? How significant is the threat posed by its opposition to the war on terror? How powerful is its presence in the Democratic Party? What is its role in shaping the American future?

The leftist-Islamist coalition is unified by its opposition to the war in Iraq and more particularly by its antagonism towards the United States and Israel. The task I set for myself in Unholy Alliance was to explain this unity, to identify the coherence of the leftist worldview amidst all of its apparent cacophony and conflict.

What is it about the left that causes it to hate America and Israel, two multi-ethnic democracies which in the practical environment of international politics are arguably the most decent societies on the face of the earth?

Today the left is still divided over its plans for the future, but these plans pale into insignificance in terms of its real passion which is its nihilistic antagonism towards the United States the metropolis at the center of the global capitalist system. Its overweening hatred of global capitalism – "globalization" – which is its energizing force, explains how it can make opportunistic alliances with Islamic fundamentalists who share the same enemy. The World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the targets of Osama Bin Laden are not coincidently the very symbols of globalization and the American-led world capitalist system of a free economy that the communists hate.

It is true that Tony Blair is America's closest ally in the war to liberate Iraq and is also a member of the socialist International. But Blair is an anomaly. The bulk of his party opposes the war and so do the majority of social democrats – in Spain and elsewhere. How does the left oppose Operation Iraqi Freedom, a campaign to liberate Iraq? It does so, because it regards America as a greater threat than the forces arrayed against America in Iraq. It does so, because it regards the priority of toppling Saddam far less than that of opposing American power. The Great Satan. And of course Israel in this perspective is inevitably the "Little Satan," the root cause not only of the misery of the Middle East but of the terrorist movement (desperate people who have no other option), as well. In other words the nihilistic vector, which emanates from the idea of a social redemption and is blocked by the United States (and Israel) is today what defines the left. Interestingly, the same conclusion has been drawn by a leftist historian named Andre Markovits, writing in the Winter 2005 issue of the social democratic journal Dissent.

The left's need for a political redemption overcomes such differences and forges the coalition which includes the Islamofascists. This coalition is most obvious and visible in the global crusade of Islamist fundamentalists and secular leftists to Continue the Cold War against the West while riding piggback on the shoulders of the Islamofascists.
