Coinciding with the first day of President Donald Trumps first visit to Israel, a British national identified by CBS News as Salman Abedi, reportedly decided to blow himself apart with what police described as an Improvised Explosive Device, taking the lives of 22 others as he did so.
That there were children among his victims we can only assume that this child of Libyan refugees, who moved to the UK to flee Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, was unconcerned about.
We can only assume because dead men make poor witnesses. We have to take the authorities word for the events surrounding what has become an all too familiar series of attacks by muslims living in Europe, or as the left would prefer us to believe, European muslims. Post 9/11 this is hard to do.
That’s not meant to cast doubt on the fact that Western Civilisation – not for the first time it should be added – faces an existential threat from Islam and the fifth column firmly embedded and exponentially procreating amongst us. That the term “Improvised Explosive Device” has now entered civilian police parlance is a wake up call to those more familiar with the targeted “bombing” campaigns of traditional European political extremist organisations.
As alluded to above though, the timing of this seems a little too coincidental. As reported by Fox news, on Saturday President Trump signed a $110 billion arms deal to help Saudi Arabia boost its military “defence” system – we should ask the people of Yemen what they think of Saudi defence since their destructive intervention in that countries internal affairs.
After this first official trip as US President – involving a bizarre ceremony with the laying of his hands on an illuminated orb together with the Saudi King and the President of Egypt – he travelled on to Israel, who as we are regularly reminded by the legacy media in the US is its biggest democratic ally in the region, where he followed in the tradition of previous US politicians, and continued with the laying of his hands this time on the Wailing Wall, his perfectly combed hair crowned with a Kippah.
With regards to both Saudi Arabia and Israel, two countries that openly condemn the savagery committed by ISIS and it’s affiliates in Iraq and Syria, while obscuring the fact that it was they who facilitated the rise of ISIS in the region as a proxy war against Irans allies such as Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, we should ask ourselves how much they stand to gain by this and other such attacks throughout Europe and America.
In the case of Israel it’s a no-brainer. With the rise of “Islamophobia” there has been a continued post WW2 drop in antisemitism – at least by ethnic “infidel” europeans – and a general rise in the belief, including European populist “far-right” movements and political parties, that Zionist Israel is an ally in the 21st Century war against radical Islam.
Considering this, it’s unlikely that Israel will ever find herself in a situation similar to the Yom Kippur War, at least in the sense that Europe is unlikely to stand by indifferently if she is attacked again by her Muslim neighbours, especially after strategic terror attacks such as Manchester, and the latent resentment caused by the unassimilated muslim population and resultant societal problems, have had their effect.
With regards to Sunni Saudi Arabia, their biggest rival in terms of regional, and certainly religious hegemony, is Shiite Iran. Their implicit alliance with Israel is one of convenience rather than a natural one, especially considering the derogatory view of Jews expressed in parts of the Koran, and the resultant negative opinion of the muslim world against the Jewish state.
We should wait to see if forces within the UK government, rather than concentrating on the Brexit will of the people, will seize on the opportunity to follow the EU in its official appeasement of Islam and muslims in the old continent, while sanctimoniously voicing their determination to fight ISIS and other extremists in the middle-east who they preach threaten our democracies and freedoms, democracies which have been made a mockery of by the bureaucrats in Brussels, and freedoms which they will eventually extinguish themselves because of the threat of radical Islam and the ethnic European backlash which they themselves created and engineered.
There’s a way out of this madness, but paradoxically it seems that democracy will not facilitate it, at least certainly not if the legacy media in the West has its way, and continues to control the narrative which condemns moderate common sense nationalists such as Geerd Wilders, Marine Le Pen, and others closely aligned to their political ideology, as “fascists.”
It seems inevitable that if European nations cannot reclaim their future in fair elections – and yes, the implication is that elections are not only unfair, but even subject to criminal manipulation – then we’ll descend into an authoritarianism of some sort in the not so distant future.
Europeans need to decide if the authoritarianism is a “progressive” SJW revamp of the type already seen in the Soviet Union, and written about in books such as Orwell’s 1984, or a nationalist uprising resulting in a populist government which takes the necessary unilateral steps to save our civilisation and the lives of our innocents.
First of all we need – to paraphrase Republican candidate Trump – a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the West until we can figure out what the hell is going on, and the immediate repatriation of all non-citizen men of military age that have migrated here since the appearance of ISIS in 2013.
Secondly there should be a freeze on the construction of new mosques, and all Imams and muslim community leaders known to or suspected of voicing support for terrorists or terrorist acts should be immediately arrested under existing anti-terrorism laws, which should in any case be expanded to focus specifically on muslim extremism and provide the police and judiciary the powers they need to silence them.
Thirdly we should disentangle ourselves from the quagmire of the Middle East. Any intervention to fight extremists should be similar to Russias current engagement in Syria, where under the invitation of the official government they’re assisting the Syrian Army in bombing campaigns against ISIS positions.
Israel has nuclear weapons and is able to look after herself. If she can reach a peaceful two state settlement with the Palestinians, so much the better for peace and stability in the region, but if the illegal settlements continue to be built in the West Bank then all economic ties should be severed. Support for Israel can no longer be unconditional as this is the key to peace in the region, and with the muslim world as a whole.
Judging by the establishment opposition Donald Trump has faced in the US regarding his “muslim ban”, it seems unlikely that any of this can be implemented save a catastrophic event, such as a nuclear bomb exploding in one of our capital cities and extinguishing the lives of millions. Certainly a pessimistic prediction, but a terrifyingly real threat nonetheless – Hollywood has already primed us for this with films such as True Lies, and Unthinkable.
But it’s imperative we try, we owe it to the majority of decent people who want to raise their children in peace and safety, and who dream and strive for more than a retrograde existence. Platitudes will no longer do, the time to tell the truth and act accordingly – no matter how politically incorrect – has arrived, in order to avoid a complete catastrophe which leaves us with no way back from the brink of the clash of civilisations and dystopia.
