The idea of using suicide pilots to obliterate the skyscrapers of Manhattan originated in 1940s Berlin. “In the latter stages of the war, I never saw Hitler so beside himself as when, as if in a delirium, he was picturing to himself and to us the downfall of New York in towers of flame,” wrote Albert Speer in his diary. “He described the skyscrapers turning into huge burning torches and falling hither and thither, and the reflection of the disintegrating city in the dark sky.”
Not only Hitler’s fantasy but also his plan of action foreshadowed September 11: He envisioned having kamikaze pilots fly light aircraft packed with explosives and with no landing gear into Manhattan skyscrapers. The drawings for the Daimler-Benz Amerikabomber from the spring of 1944 show giant four-engine planes with raised undercarriages for transporting small bombers. The bombers would be released shortly before the planes reached the East Coast, after which the mother plane would return to Europe.
Hitler’s rapture at the thought of Manhattan in flames indicates his underlying motive: not merely to fight a military adversary, but to kill all Jews everywhere. Possessed of the notion that the whole of the Second World War was a struggle against an imaginary Jewish enemy, he deemed “the USA a Jewish state” and New York the center of world Jewry. “Wall Street,” as a popular book published in Munich in 1919 put it, “is, so to speak, the Military Headquarters of Judas. From there his threads radiate out across the entire world.” From 1941 on, Hitler pushed to get the bombers into production, in order to “be able to teach the Jews a lesson in the form of terror attacks on American metropolises.” Towards the end of the war this idea became an obsession.
Sixty years later, it so happens, the assault on the World Trade Center was coordinated from Germany. Mohamed Atta, the Egyptian who piloted the plane that struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center; Marwan al–Shehhi, from the United Arab Emirates, who steered the plane into the South Tower; Ziad Jarrah, from Lebanon, who crashed United Airlines Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pennsylvania; and their friends Ramzi Binalshibh, a Yemeni, and the Moroccan student Mounir al-Motassedeq had formed an al Qaeda cell in Hamburg, where they held regular “Koran circle” meetings with sympathizers.
What ideas propelled Atta and the others to act? Witnesses provided part of the answer at the world’s first 9/11-related trial, the prosecution of al-Motassedeq, which took place in Hamburg between October 2002 and February 2003. One participant in the Koran circle meetings, Shahid Nickels, said Atta’s Weltanschauung was based on a “National Socialist way of thinking.” Atta was convinced that the Jews were striving for world domination and considered New York City the center of world Jewry, which was, in his opinion, Enemy No. 1. Fellow students who lived in Motassedeq’s dormitory testified that he shared these views and waxed enthusiastic about a forthcoming “big action.” One student quoted Motassedeq as saying, “The Jews will burn and in the end we will dance on their graves.”

I think it is time to re-link to The Islamic Mein Kampf to drive the point home.
Part of winning this war involves exposing the ideological underpinnings of our main foe, and even of various collaborators, both foreign and domestic. This war is being fought on many fronts, and the battlespace is where ever you are, including altering your perception of reality by offering up lies in the place of truth. The Counterjihad includes exposing those lies, and going on the offense.
If we withdraw from Iraq, these people will build their Caliphate and eventually come for us when they are much stronger, and much more difficult to obliterate.
We must obliterate them because that is the only way a war ends…either one side or the other is convinced it cannot win. We destroyed Italy, Germany, and Japan during the Second World War, and we must obliterate this ideology wherever we find it if we expect to have our nation survive without slipping into dhimmitude.
I will leave you with a quote from Küntzel:
Not to confront the ideological roots of Islamism–notably its well-documented connection to Nazi Jew-hatred–stymies any Western push for political, economic, and cultural modernization in the Muslim world. Yet only such modernization can split the majority of Muslims, who would benefit from social progress, from the Islamists, who are willing to die to prevent it. Without challenging the ideological roots of Islamism, it is impossible to confront the Muslim world with the real choices before it: Will it choose life and hope, or does it prefer the cult of death? Will it stand up for individual and social self-determination, or will it finally submit to the mullahs’ program of Jew-hatred and jihad?

Tom Delay has formed a new conservative grassroots organization called Coalition for a Conservative Majority.
I heard most of the interview with Rush Limbaugh today, and, after a quick glance at the home page…it looks promising.
He also has a book out, “No Retreat, No Surrender.”
From the website:
In 2006, conservatives were beaten at the polls for the first time in years. But unlike in previous defeats, conservatives this time were beaten at what we have always done best: grassroots organization, coordination, and mobilization. The grassroots playbook that helped create the conservative majorities of Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, the Republican Congress of the 1990s, and George W. Bush in the 21st century failed for the first time to outwork liberals.
For six years now, former leaders of the Clinton Administration have studied and surpassed the conservative grassroots network, creating a liberal coalition unprecedented in its size, scope, and funding. This is the network that beat conservatives in 2006 and handed Congress back to the Democrat Party – and that was just the warm-up. The liberal Shadow Party has been built for one reason: to elect Hillary Clinton President of the United States in 2008. They have the money, the organization, and the coordination to do it, and there is no conservative network capable of standing in its path. Until now.
The Coalition for a Conservative Majority is a results driven grassroots action and information organization, the first such conservative organization worthy of the name. We will not be content to organize fund-raising databases or provide perches for figure-head leadership. Instead, CCM will: IDENTIFY, RECRUIT, TRAIN, INSPIRE, ACTIVATE, and MOBILIZE conservatives to take specific action on policy issues and political causes across the country.
