Peter Smith’s words below are worth heeding and he has nailed a serious, culture-altering problem.
There is a solution though which he doesn’t offer and that is Christ Jesus, King of the nations in whom humanity finds salvation.
Nonetheless, salvation in Jesus won’t stop the West from eroding into a quagmire of philosophical idiocy nor the brutal assault from Islam that idiotic quagmires demand.
It is there, dead ahead and clear as day, the looming lee shore of terror, intolerance, tribal savagery and the liberties of all curtailed in the name of defending against an enemy our leaders perversely refuse to recognise, let alone name
Just suppose it were possible to shoot people in the name of a religion and have the leader of the Free World, together with his media sycophants, deplore gun ownership among potential victims. Just suppose it were possible to shoot people in the name of a religion and have the leader of the Free World, together with his media sycophants, refuse to blame and name the religion. Just suppose it were possible to shoot people in the name of a religion and have the leader of the Free World, together with his media sycophants, mainly fret about a potential backlash against followers of the religion.
That, indeed, would be cunning plan of Baldrick proportions. And it would, of course, be completely fanciful to imagine it would ever work. Wouldn’t it?
One “expert” on CNN explained that the attack in San Bernardino was likely to be workplace violence. But the interviewer asked how come Syed Farook’s wife, Tashfeen Malik, having left their 6-month-old baby at home, was with him, gun in hand? He responded smoothly that he may have enjoined her in his disgruntlement. But the interviewer, who inexplicably continued to take this nincompoop seriously, asked how come they attacked in combat gear? That is unusual, the nincompoop agreed, without this at all affecting his opinion that the massacre was most likely work-related.
In company with the President, CNN — and almost certainly most other mainstream media — and also the FBI, held out for as long as possible in the face of the evidence. They did their politically-correct best to put off conceding what was bleeding obvious from the start to anyone of average common sense. According to a Fox News reporter on the ground, the FBI even flirted with describing the event as work-inspired terrorism before settling on terrorism.
But still conjoining the descriptor “Islamic” with terrorism proved a step too far. And, just in case FBI Director James Comey stepped out of line and upset his President by mentioning Islam at his media conference, Attorney General Loretta Lynch sat by his side with a cattle prod resting on his sensitive parts. Figuratively speaking, I think.
Born in America, Farook had recently become devout and grown out his beard. He had travelled to Mecca, where he met Malik in person, having ‘wooed’ her over the internet. She was a Pakistani national living in Saudi Arabia. She entered the US on a visa reserved for intended marriage partners of American citizens. She subsequently shunned American values beneath a full burqa and helped gun down the same people who had given her a ‘baby shower’. It is disgusting and sickening and could only emerge from malignant ethos.
Eventually the IEDs which the pair had made in their garage, their destruction of communication devices, Farook’s social media liaison with extremists on an FBI watch list, and Malik’s pledging of allegiance on Facebook to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi probably, just barely, gave the game away. Apparently, none of Farook’s three siblings, or his mother who lived with Farook and Malik, noticed anything amiss. Not a thing! According to the family’s lawyers they are all shocked. Hmm, might have heard that before.
Reportedly, a neighbour saw what she thought were strange goings on, with numbers of young, Middle-Eastern young men repeatedly going in and out of Farook’s garage late at night. She also saw lots of boxes being delivered. Apparently she was afraid to contact the authorities for fear of being branded a bigot. I don’t know, but if Farook had been investigated, he might, like ‘clock boy’, have been able to claim Islamophobic victimization, have been invited to the White House, and sued for a huge amount of money.
We are in trouble; big trouble. The trouble is not that some people want to destroy us and our civilisation in the name of their morbid religion. That is as plain as the tumbling Twin Towers. The trouble is that significant numbers of commentators and political leaders and masses of Western self-hating leftists, greenies and borderless-world creeps are determined to look the other way, even to the extent of looking ridiculous.
In another time ISIS would have been destroyed by now. Mosques would have been infiltrated and the trouble makers rooted out. And, populations of Muslims – if, in the first place, such large numbers had ever been let in — would have been actively encouraged to integrate rather than set up separate cultish communes in the suburbs of major Western cities. Mind you, then multiculturalism hadn’t been invented and foisted on Western societies, patriotism and national pride were not openly despised by the mainstream media, and the aforementioned creeps were no more than an eccentric fringe group.
