Smart or stupid depends on the goals

One of the stories going around the blogosphere these days is spying on synagogues in the UK. What I wonder is, what is the point of that? It seems to me this represents the triumph of ideology over strategy. Suppose this effort was successful and the Caliphascists perpetrated an atrocity in the UK. This would be a strategic success in what way? I think it would probably serve to further isolate the Caliphascist supporters in the USA. Given that the USA is the lynchpin of the effort against the Caliphascists, I don’t really see the benefit of that. I suppose such an attack might help energize the Judenhass already present in Europe, but that will again force a starker choice in the West between fighting Caliphascism or accepting a second Jewis Holocaust. Perhaps that’s really the goal, to split the Ummah in the West from the West. The response of the Western Ummah has already been very disappointing for anyone who wants to avoid a world wide religious war but if that is your goal then this might be the right strategy. Why the Caliphascists think an all-out war between the Ummah and the rest of the world is a good thing is still a puzzle, though.
