NewsmaxTV: D'Souza on Ebola and Israel

Originally posted at Newsmax.

The U.S. should consider banning flights from West Africa in a bid to safeguard the continent from the Ebola virus, says conservative author and award-winning filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

“If you make a simple balance sheet, what is the risk of excluding some West African flights from coming in?” D’Souza said Monday on The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV.

“That’s minimal, versus what is the risk of having a very serious health problem in the United States? That’s something that weighs heavily on behalf of looking out for the health of our own citizens.”

Three West Africa countries are desperately struggling to contain an outbreak of the deadly virus — and one American doctor and his aide, infected in Liberia, have been flown back to the U.S. for treatment.

D’Souza, whose new documentary is called America, said the seemingly lax attitude towards keeping Ebola out of the U.S. could be indicative of a wrongheaded ideology that is sweeping the nation.

“There’s sort of this ideology … that somehow it’s bad for a country to look out directly for its own survival and its own self-interest,” he said.

“A country should and must protect the self-interest and in fact, the survival of its own citizens. Now, there are a lot of problems in the rest of the world — poverty, disease, epidemics.”

“We should be compassionate toward those people, but that does not mean that we should not draw a tight cord around ourselves and it is the first duty of any government to protect its own citizens.”

D’Souza lashed out at a growing anti-Israel sentiment around the world as the Jewish state attempts to protect itself against the terrorist group Hamas.

“The European anti-Israel lobby, as well as other countries, are trying to make Israel into the new, pre-apartheid South Africa,” he said.

“You see that phrase ‘apartheid’ coming up again and again and why? Because apartheid is an effort to morally de-legitimize Israel. Ultimately, apartheid South Africa simply collapsed because states need more legitimacy in order to hold themselves together.”

“Even the Soviet Union collapsed when its legitimacy essentially went down to zero. So in some sense, what’s going on here is a very sly and effective campaign to isolate Israel to make it into a pariah state and to act as though the very idea of having a Jewish state means that it is a separatist, it is a racist, it is an apartheid state with no moral right to exist.”

    To win the culture over, we need to place the arts on a loftier perch. Is it possible to influence O’Reilly or other well watched conservative shows, to begin creating their own reading lists, fashion clubs, or book clubs that will allow a forum for conservative artists with imaginative minds. Of course, the writers, or musicians, would have to meet a high standard. We’re not going to win the culture over by merely hawking political books.
    Your great work proves that there is a grand market for traditional thinkers who hold conservative views. We must push on, to take back the museums, the film industry, the music industry, and of course, we must supplant the liberal doctrine that has infested all our public schools and universities. It won’t happen until the top dogs start pushing the works of like minded thinkers, and artists. By raising the standards we will toss out the “lesser artists” that dominate the stages anc once again, true art, truth, and beauty will rule the day.

    The biggest problem with the Republican party is that they are always apologizing to the American Workers because their economic principals are skewed and ill-planned. . Up until recently, the radicals depended upon Lush Rambo to present those excuses to his rabid radio audience. But now, as we all know, Rush is losing his listener audience station by station each time he opens his mouth. For awhile, I thought that Sarah Palin was being nurtured as the Chief aural policy apologist of the Radical Republicans, But I was wrong, with the help of Saul Alinsky, the new king apologist is none other than Dinesh D’Souza . Carry on!
