"Israel wants to see a Middle East of progress and peace. We want to see the
three great religions that sprang forth from our region – Judaism, Christianity
and Islam – coexist in peace and in mutual respect.
Yet the medieval forces of radical Islam, whom you just saw storming the
American embassies throughout the Middle East, they oppose this.
They seek supremacy over all Muslims. They are bent on world conquest. They
want to destroy Israel, Europe, America. They want to extinguish freedom. They
want to end the modern world.
Militant Islam has many branches – from the rulers of Iran with their
Revolutionary Guards to al Qaeda terrorists to the radical cells lurking in
every part of the globe.
But despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of
intolerance. That intolerance is directed first at their fellow Muslims, and
then to Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn't
submit to their unforgiving creed.
They want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma and
I am sure of one thing. Ultimately they will fail. Ultimately, light will
penetrate the darkness.
