and domestic pressures in the United States increased support for the case that America’s allies, particularly the European ones, should pick up more international security burdens to relieve American ones. Clearly, this was a formula for transatlantic friction. By the middle of this decade, as Western economies still struggled to recover from the great recession, two new threats to Western security intruded on the hope for peace in a post-Iraq and Afghanistan War world. One was posed by the emergence of a new radical Islamist group variously called the “Islamic

-for settling of the problems of belligerent totalitarian power in the region. As was repeatedly remarked upon over the subsequent period until 2001, there was no ‘closure’ in the attempts to democratise and pacify Iraq. At the same time, the supporters of American interest against the USSR in Afghanistan were transmogrified into the Taleban and have since morphed into the threat of ‘Islamic Fundamentalism’, already recognised in the early 1990s as one that could become the next great threat to a Western inspired NWO. Mark Juergensmayer called it ‘The New Cold War’, one where

[than just security assistance]. You’re not just developing one muscle in the body, you’re developing the whole body.”18 The situation in the trans-Sahara grew increasingly dangerous following the overthrow and death of Muammar Qadhafi in 2011, which unleashed long suppressed jihadist forces and gave rise to a multitude of powerful local Islamist militias. Not only has this left Libya in constant turmoil, but it opened the door for inroads by the Islamic State starting in 2014 and a new front in the war on terror. Thanks to the combined efforts of militias allied with

In reality, terrorists have never truly threatened a state, or democracy, or freedom or the way of life of an entire people; nor have they ever threatened the peace of the world or the existence of any civilisation. On the other hand, there are numerous

The members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation also supported the API. The plan emerged at the height of the second Palestinian intifada. On 27 March 2002, a Palestinian suicide bomber killed thirty Israelis and over 100 were wounded. Israelis refer to the attack as the Passover massacre. Including those killed that day, approximately 200 Israeli civilians had been killed by that stage in the intifada.40 Within days

Second, the war contributed to a longer-term trend, the rise of Islamism. Islamists argued the war had exposed the bankruptcy of Arab socialism, the then dominant and largely secular ideology of the Arab regimes. Secularism had failed the Arab peoples, but there was an alternative: Islam was the answer.63 One should be careful not to overstate the role of the 1967 war, as the Arab

people such as Uri Davis, whose theory of the shadow Israelis live under I discussed in Chapter 1. Davis, who in 100 Co-memory and melancholia summer 2008 married his Palestinian partner in an Islamic ceremony, was reported in the media as a ‘post-Zionist’ who converted to Islam (Fendel 2008). His vehement response to being dubbed a ‘post-Zionist’ is utterly different to Israelis reluctant to name themselves anti-Zionists due to the perception of anti- Zionism as deviant: I am not ‘post-Zionist’ - I am anti-Zionist in the sense that I am wholly opposed to the idea of
