Of Masters and Their Slaves

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." ―Ayn Rand

The Enigma of Middle Eastern Terrorism

In an opinion article entitled "Khalid Al-Fawwaz and the Problem of Terrorism," Saudi Arabian journalist and counterterrorism analyst Mshari Al-Zaydi strikes the heart of the matter and identifies the internal essence of the terrorism crisis plaguing the Middle East and, by extension, the rest of the world. Al-Zaydi writes:

"The two versions of terrorism committed in the name of Islam -- that is, the Shiite and Sunni varieties -- feed into each other. Confronting them, in equal measures, represents a major task facing Arab politicians and an end indispensable to their work in general.

In order to remove ISIS’s raison d’être, Iran’s Khomeinist regime should be eliminated. On the other hand, in order for Khomeinist propaganda to be broken, ISIS must be destroyed."

Al-Zaydi does not address the external factors that feed the region's terrorism predicament, but seems to imply that Daesh (a.k.a., ISIL; ISIS; Islamic State) must be annihilated prior to defeating and subduing the Khomeinists. This is questionable, as support for Daesh runs deep among frustrated Sunnis.

On the other hand, many disenchanted and frustrated Iranians are awaiting the collapse of the Khomeinist mullahs' oppressive regime.

Time will tell who will go first: Daesh or the Khomeinists!

But, one thing is for sure: Both will go!
