Neocon WWIII Scenario? Frank Gaffney: Rise of Sharia Rule in the Arab World Will Bring War

A career Islamophobe, Frank Gaffney, who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense working under Richard Perle [1] during the Reagan administration, warned Newsmax of what he perceives as the escalating dangers of Sharia in the aftermath of the Arab Spring.

Gaffney predicts WWIII will unfold in the form of a US defense of Israel against a united alliance of Arab/Sharia states that will not be confined to the Middle East.

Gaffney describes Sharia as, “Communism with a god” and, “the most urgent and grievous challenge we face as a free people.”

“I’m afraid there’s a war coming, a very serious, perhaps cataclysmic regional war… It will be presumably over, at least in part, the future existence of the state of Israel. It may involve all of its neighbors, as they have in the past, attacking Israel to try, as they say, to drive the Jews into the sea.

“It may involve the use of nuclear weapons,… But whatever form it takes and whenever it occurs, it is unlikely to be contained to that region, and we must do everything we can to prevent freedom’s enemies from thinking they have an opportunity to engage in that kind of warfare.” Gaffney: Rise of Sharia Rule Will Bring War to the Middle East, NewsMax, October 24, 2011)



During 2006, Richard Perle went to Libya to meet with the late Muammar al-Gaddafi on more than one occasion. During his Libyan operation, Perle met face-to-face with Gaddafi and reported directly to Dick Cheney. Neocons lament the loss of their ally, Gaddafi.
