They know who their enemies are, do we?

LATEST: Moviemaker OLIVER STONE has responded to Iranian critics who called him "part of the Great Satan" as they refused his official request to make a movie about President MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD. The Doors director approached Iranian officials at the beginning of 2007 and revealed his plans to turn the life of the country's leader into a biopic. But with Iranian/American cultural relations at a new low thanks to the portrayal of Persians in films like 300 and Stone's Alexander, Middle Eastern film authorities have denied the filmmaker access to Iranian locations. Responding to Stone's request, Ahmadinejad's media advisor has said, "While it is true that Oliver Stone is considered to be among the opposition in the U.S., the opposition is still part of the Great Satan." The director is taking the snub in his stride, stating, "I've been called a lot of things, but never a Great Satan. "I wish the Iranian people well and I only hope their experience with an inept, rigid idealogue president goes better than ours."

I saw this but wasn't planning to do anything with it because I don't imagine anyone else cares any more about what Oliver Stone has to say about anything than I do.

But then I noticed how well this illustrates a point that I've been making about the Islamists. Look at what the Iranians said to Stone. "We know that you hate America as much as we do, but you're still American so we still hate you."

This is exactly the same attitude displayed by the bomb plotters in the UK. Even after the British booted the terror war fighting Tony Blair from #10 Downing and installed a new PM dedicated to surrender -a man who will not even allow the words Islam or Muslim be uttered in the same sentence as the word terrorism - they still wanted to blow up London and Glasgow.

I want all of you moonbat wackjob nut cases who want us to abandon Israel and Iraq and flee from the Middle East, whether you are on the progressive left or the paleocon isolationist right to look hard at this. Nobody could be more opposed to America's foreign policy than Oliver Stone. Nobody could hate the current administration more than Oliver Stone. Yet the Islamofascists still hate him and regard him as the enemy. If al Qaeda could get their hands on Oliver Stone they would cut his head off and post a video of it to the Internet.

So listen up moonbats. Even if you are successful in bending America's foreign policy and we cut and run from the Middle East. Even after the body of the last Israeli Jew has been kicked into a mass grave. Even after Iraq has been absorbed by Iran into a new Shiite Caliphate. They will not thank you. They will not stop wanting to kill you. They will not stop attempting to kill you.

All that an American withdrawal from the Middle East will do is cause the Islamists to stop spending their blood and treasure fighting the American military in Iraq and allow them to spend their blood and treasure fighting American civilians in Atlanta, New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
