Strategist Ralph Peters: Islamic World a 'Failed Civilization'

Monday, 10 Mar 2014 08:17 PM

The perplexing disappearance of a packed Malaysian Airlines jet has all the earmarks of terrorism, Fox News strategic analyst Ralph Peters says.

"The indicators are sure there. It looks like a terrorist act. We may find out it wasn't, but there is plenty of motivation," Peters told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

The Chinese have been just savage in their repression of the Uyghur Muslim minority in northwestern China . . . So, that is one possibility, the Uyghur Muslim activists," Peters said Monday.

The jet, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Bejing, suddenly vanished Saturday as it flew over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam. Investigators have so far found no traces of it in the water.

While various theories abound — including the possibility of an electrical problem or a suicide dive by the pilot — terrorism remains the top possibility, said Peters, author of the acclaimed Civil War novel "Hell or Richmond.''

"China is not immune to Islamic terrorism," he said.

"This problem is not going to go away in our lifetimes, primarily because the Islamic world is so utterly broken, such a failed civilization that is going to continue to generate terrorists."
