I have read a number of articles that point to the government of Syria as attempting to prevent an Islamic takeover in Syria. If these articles turn out to be accurate, then I was wrong about Syria. I had judged Syria as being a huge supporter of Islamic nationalism through its support of Hezbollah and other Islamic groups. It is possible that the Syrian government did a lot of this because they needed to follow orders, but this seems unlikely to me. This view of mine may be a product of my culture, as we tend to be intellectually honest (A trend that is changing) Islamic culture is very deceptive as this is an entrenched method of operation and has been for many centuries. (More than a millennia) I have difficulty accepting and adjusting to this concept of another culture. It is hard to figure out just what is going on within Syria, but the general trend throughout the region is a rapid rise of a stronger Islamic legal system and nationalism. This cannot be good for the U.S. nor the rest of the non-Islamic world as we are in the 'house of war'. If Syria does become more of an Islamic state, then Israel in particular is in even greater danger. All supporters of Israel are next in line. The interest of the United States is losing throughout the region. The killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya yesterday is a good example. “An "angry crowd" marched on the consulate on Tuesday, furious about an online film considered offensive to Islam, Libya's Deputy Interior Minister Wanis al-Sharif said Wednesday. The U.S. mission in Egypt was also attacked Tuesday in response to the film.” ( 9/12/12) It is in our (The U.S.) best interest for Islamic nationalism and government doctrine to die a slow death. What we are seeing today is a rise in both. We are in the ‘house of war’ and Islam is at war against us. It only stands to reason that if an enemy that is actively at war against you becomes stronger, it can only be a matter of time before you feel the effect. Wars have a nasty habit of going out of control. Wars are won by raising the level of conflict to a level that the other side either cannot or will not match. 9/11 was a wakeup call, and we fell asleep again. Our enemies may not make the same mistake this time around. (Although the damage seemed to be great, they did not hit us nearly hard enough)
