Shutting Out The Siren's Song

On Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel compared Iran's nuclear plans to the threat posed by the Nazis. She correctly made the analogy of how the world underestimated Hitler.

"Looking back to German history in the early 1930s when National Socialism was on the rise, there were many outside Germany who said 'It's only rhetoric -- don't get excited'," she told the assembled world defense policy makers.

"There were times when people could have reacted differently and, in my view, Germany is obliged to do something at the early stages ... We want to, we must prevent Iran from developing its nuclear program."

That is what some people want us to believe today, that it's only rhetoric. It goes beyond that. One needs only to see the hatred etched into the faces of those who would kill in the name of Allah and his prophet.

Senator Joe Lieberman said, "From the writings of Hitler during the 1930s and Mein Kampf to the polemics of bin Laden in the 1990s, there is ample evidence that sometimes when people write and say that they hate you and ... they want to destroy you, in fact they mean it and will try."

The islamofascists want to destroy us, it is not rhetoric, it is evil intent.

As Patrick Henry in his famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech said, " it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts."

We must close our ears to the siren's song and face the unpleasant business at hand.
