As we have read, "somebody" tried to commit mass murder on a British commuter train; a "bucket" bomb went off inside a rail car injuring around 30 persons. Seems pure luck that we have no fatality to lament; it appears the bomb-maker was not exactly a master of his/her/xi craft, and the device failed to work "properly." Instead of a massive detonation in a packed and confined rail car, the bomb "merely" generated, per the press, some sort of "fireball" that produced serious but non-lethal injuries and a stampede. The media, no doubt, will let us know where the bomb-maker failed so that future ones won't repeat the same errors.
OK. Let us not jump to conclusions re the who and the what behind this latest atrocity. Let's put aside the giddy ISIS endorsement of the act. Let us not conclude, without evidence, who is the likely perp. I won't, therefore, jump to conclude that the bomber is a Mormon missionary, an Amish tourist, an Orthodox Rabbi, or a Catholic Priest. I also won't conclude that it is some Nazi upset about the result of the 1940 Battle of Britain. Somehow, however, despite all these non-jump cautions, I think we all know who and what lie behind the bombing. Dare we say it? I don't want to invoke a Google ban . . . so I will allow each reader to whisper, "Religion of Peace."
London, once one of if not the greatest of cities, is now a place of heavily armed cops, troops, and concrete barriers; its criminally idiotic mayor delivers platitudes about "not giving in to terror" when, in fact, London has (here and here). The mayor, himself, previously lectured the world about how terrorism is just something we have to expect in a major city, so carry on smartly, nothing to see here, immigrants, and refugees still welcome . . . white English people, not so much . . . I guess it's cheaper and easier to turn Western cities into armed zones and "no go areas" that to control whom enters and stays in the country: more politically correct and less "triggering," and, after all, isn't that what modern life is all about? Not offending guests. What's a bombing or acid attack by and among friends, eh?
As we have ranted on for years, London is not alone; this is not just a battle of and for Britain any more than the original 1940 battle. All of Europe is under assault, occupation even, by a hostile, murdering, totalitarian ideology that masquerades as a religion--I leave to my intrepid readers to utter the name of that "religion." On the same day as the London attack, we saw knife and hammer attacks in France, and reports of police preventing other "Religion of Peace" attacks elsewhere in Europe.
About 2 1/2 years ago, I wrote,
IT. IS. THE. ISLAM. (Ben Affleck, please read this over and over, slowly, so that it can sink into your Hollywood/progressive head)
That's it. It's Islam: not some radical minority version of it, but mainstream, central core Islam that drives people to acts of murder and intolerance. Not hard to understand if you ever have studied Islam, spent time in Muslim countries or with Muslims in the West. It is a creed for the unbalanced, the fearful, the hate-filled. It is no wonder it thrives in prisons. Islam is a psychotic creed, not a religion as we understand religion. Islam is about conquest and, above all, about revenge: endless acts of revenge for endless slights real and imagined throughout history.
As I repeatedly have said, you can be a good person or you can be a good Muslim. The Venn diagram showing an overlap between those two categories does not exist except in the minds of apologist hacks, progressive idiots, and Hollywood--which is to say the same thing. It is with Islam as it is with Communism, Nazism, or KKKism, you can be an honorable and good person, or you can believe in that mind-rot.
Once upon a time that retrograde ideology, Islam, was confined largely to places most of us could not care less about. The Sudan had its Mahdi with his delusions of leading a global conquest for Islam; Jerusalem had its Nazi-loving Grand Mufti, and so on. They were Muslim crazies in lands of Muslim crazies. Thanks, however, to modern technology and Western soft-headedness, those Muslim crazies have set up shop in our countries. We in the West seem to have forgotten something we knew during the Cold War against the Communists, and during the Second World War against the Nazis and the Fascists, to wit, belief in freedom does not mean signing a suicide pact. We are not required to import millions of sworn enemies into our homes.I wouldn't dare post that now, and risk a Google or Twitter ban . . .
