QOTD: “MR. DRISCOLL: And Andrew, last question. What does your crystal ball forecast for the next few years of the Middle East, and Israel and America’s response to Iran?

MR. BOSTOM: It’s getting pretty dark. And I’m very concerned. I was hoping that in its own small way this book might concentrate minds about the need to do something, something to at least delay Iran’s nuclear program. Because if they develop a nuclear program, I think it’s going to be very, very destabilizing.

And, you know, are we going to have to depend on things like, you know, declining population, et cetera, to be a countervailing force? I wouldn’t hold too much hope in that. I think it’s going to be very chaotic and dangerous if Iran has a nuclear program.

Beyond that, I really can’t say. I do hope that Western societies begin to appreciate and stop denying the animating ideology. We’re living in an age of very vibrant Jihadism. And it comes wrapped in a package of pretty virulent Islamic anti-Semitism [and] general hatred of non-Muslims. And these attitudes are widely prevalent. They’re widely dangerous. They’re not healthy for the societies that are perpetuating them themselves. But they’re certainly not healthy for non-Muslim societies.

And I think there’s going to be more conflict. Maybe there’ll be a hiatus when there’s terrible internecine conflict, as we’re seeing in Syria. But I think we’re headed for very, very dangerous times. And an appeasement mentality, a denial mentality, is only going to make matters worse.” –Ed Driscoll interviews Andrew Bostom
