'Arab Nation' Must
Restore its Lost Willingness to Fight! (Kitabat, Iraq)
“Evil now penetrates
the walls of our souls and spirits, destroying them perhaps fatally. It is in
this way that they [the West] eliminated the incentive to fight from the German people (Nazi
ideology) and from the Japanese, thus turning Germany and Japan into civil
countries resigned to conditions imposed by the victor.”
Days ago, the Russians held an impressive and solemn military
parade to commemorate their victory over Nazism and the defense of their
country (watch parade below). This was an exhibition of clout and state power that
serves as a deterrent to anyone tempted to threaten the security of the Russian
homeland, since military force is one of the key attributes of advanced and
All through history, the most powerful nations have
been more martial than civil, because their mindsets see things offensively
rather than defensively. Ancient Rome was a military state. So were the Persians,
French and British. The United States, too, has a military spirit, say what one
will of a more passive approach.
Even that monstrous entity Israel is a military state. And while vibrant
and powerful nations become increasingly militarized, we have become increasingly
demilitarized. They go on the offensive and we go on the defensive, with the
Gulf countries setting the example for our people. These countries remained unarmed
up to the point of humiliation and defeat, when they finally farcically and frantically
And the Islamic nation, after it was formed by the Prophet (Peace
Be Upon Him), was a military nation with a definitively
offensive mindset - until it fell into decadence and was left to be stripped
and fought over by its enemies.
The first goal of the Arab nation’s enemies was to de-incentivize
the offensive mindset that had motivated it, managing to get it to adopt a purely
humanitarian stance. The mindset of the nation was transformed from definitively
offensive to negative and defensive, so that our overriding concern has been to protect ourselves from evil and not attack it,
whether it be in our homes or mosques, in our countries, on the street or even within
Evil now penetrates the walls of our souls and spirits, destroying
them perhaps fatally. It is in this way that they eliminated the incentive to
fight from the German people (Nazi ideology) and from the Japanese, which was
done by eliminating the concept that they came from the gods, thus turning Germany
and Japan into civil countries resigned to conditions imposed by the victor.

The political compasses of states are determined by their
enemies. The animosity could be ideological, like that of Western countries
toward Islam and communism. It can be strategic, like the animosity of Russia
toward Europe after the Russians gave up on communism. The animosity could be traditional,
like that between India and Pakistan. Or it could even be a kind of virtual animosity
disconnected from any particular people or country, like the terrorism conjured
up by America to scare other countries and serve its interests.
Nations are forever locked in conflict with their enemies, be
it a struggle for sovereignty, hegemony over the world, a battle for influence and
interests, or a struggle to simply survive.
As for our political compass, it is broken and we have been
knocked off balance. We have been following the apparition conjured up by our
enemies because we aren’t in a struggle for sovereignty, influence or
existence. Instead, we are in a struggle with ourselves, our own people, Arab
vs. Kurd, Sunni vs. Shiite, Syrian vs. Jordanian, Algerian vs. Moroccan, etc.
Accepting the existence of good and evil, the human mind grapples
with the discrepancy …
There can be no nation without an enemy!
And a nation without an enemy is a nation without a
A nation without a conscience is a nation without an awareness
of life and history!
