Israeli-American Writer Calls for Destruction Of Ka`ba
CAIRO, Oct 1 (IslamOnline & News Agencies) - An Israeli-American writer
invited the Western world to destroy the Ka`ba, the house of Allah,
built by the Prophet Ibrahim and his son Isma`il, and to which Muslims
turn to in times of prayer fives times a day.
In an article entitled "Time to face Mecca," published in the Israeli
Insider Online Magazine, Reuven Koret said, "Should the jihadists
(Muslim strugglers) ever again dare to execute a genocidal assault on
the people and symbols of Western civilization - let them know beyond
any possible doubt that they will have no direction in which to turn
when they bow and worship their deity of destruction."
Commenting on the article, the Egyptian independent weekly Al-Usboo
said, "Those who think that the upcoming war is not a crusade, or who
claim that the comments expressed by U.S. President George W. Bush was
just a slip of the tongue must think twice and be prepared for what's to
come. This article is one of the mad calls that prove that we need to be
prepared for the worst scenario."
Koret said that the destruction of the World Trade Center complex and
the Pentagon are a "great danger", claiming it would become a
"precedent" for future outrages.
"Within months or years, if not now, the fundamental Islamic states and
terror groups will have at their disposal nuclear weapons to complement
their existing stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. As the
abomination in New York proves, they will not hesitate to use genocide
as a policy."
Koret demanded "a new strategy of deterrence calculated to stop the
momentum of radical Islam that is threatening the free world. The
Islamic fanatics have declared jihad - [struggle] - against the West. An
appropriate and immediate response is imperative."
"Next in line, if the Jihadists have their way, will be the White House,
the Statue of Liberty, the Golden Gate Bridge, Big Ben, the Eiffel
Tower, the Kremlin. All are at immediate risk, everyone knows it, and
the inspired followers of radical Islam have had their appetites
opened," claimed Koret.
The West, says Koret, must find ways to deter the "Jihadist", that is
"by understanding and answering them in terms of their value system, not
ours. Will it do anyone any good to bomb the airport of Kabul, or the
military bases of the Taliban? Been there, done that. The concentrated
efforts of the Western World did not bring Saddam Hussein to his knees.
George Bush senior failed, and George Bush junior will be scorned at if
that is the main approach."
Instead, Koret's suggestion is, "In Mecca there are two tall towers,
minarets that stand guard over a large black box that serves as the
object of worship for the faithful, the destination of their holy
pilgrimage. It is to this symbolic object to which all Moslems pray.
"Americans, like Israelis, are distinguished among the nations in their
respect for innocent human life. We will not as a policy target
civilians, and if civilians are harmed as an unintended result of a
military action, they will be genuinely sorry.
"But the Western World must first protect its own people, and that means
creating a deterrent policy that will make the next suicide bombers and
their masters think twice. Whether it is publicly announced or merely
communicated through quiet channels, the Jihadists must know with
absolute certainty that the next outrage against a Western target will
prompt an immediate and massive military strike against a prominent
symbol of Islam.
"No one can doubt that the destruction of one or more of the sacred
symbols of Islam - even without harming a single civilian - would send
the Moslem world into an anti-Western frenzy."
He added that the only solution is to attack Mecca, "The West must face
Mecca now, dealing directly with the threat that the cowards of Jihad
have forced us to confront, speaking to murderers in the only language

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was
not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not
speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the
Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for
me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Pastor Martin Niemoller
