The headline of this article is a term we’ve heard many times, notably after every alleged terrorist attack. High profile politicians rattle out the well used phrase in defiance of any carnage on our streets, whilst neglecting to tell us what they base their theory on. Did ISIS or some other group of murderous criminals make a public announcement to confirm these aims? No, it’s simply the default phrase used following an act of terrorism and they cannot support the claim with any credible evidence.
Never mentioned is the the elephant in the room. We ignore the devastating violence inflicted on Muslim dominated nations and subsequently, the bogus reasons used to justify those attacks. Afghanistan never had nuclear weapons but hiding in the Tora Bora mountains was a villain worthy of a 007 plot, Bin Laden. Luckily, Tony Blair said they did have nuclear weapons in Iraq, we just never found any. Gadaffi couldn’t be allowed to murder his own people but we were. Bashar al Assad, the gentle looking qualified opthalmist didn’t quite look the part but when you’ve got a dedicated team like the White helmets on your side, it doesn’t matter if your target looks as innocent as Mother Theresa.
These partially destroyed countries have one common theme, Muslims. Not exclusively but if you were to drop a bomb at random in any of the four nations, the most likely outcome would be dead Muslims.
Even more surprising is that ‘we’ aren’t being (literally) invaded by armed soldiers of the aforementioned regions. After all, they are within their rights to defend themselves against our aggression under the Geneva Conventions. The fraudulent claim that it is to help them or rid them of a tyrant is pure fiction. I suggest the true primary reason for these illegal slaughters is to remove barriers for Israeli domination of the Middle East. Only by compartmentalising the surrounding neighbours of Israel can they hope to keep them in check. Apparently, splitting up the various groups is the job of the US and it’s lackeys.
So, now we know why there are groups of Muslim fanatics attacking the West.
..Actually, we don’t. What is certain is that our Western lifestyle is NOT the problem. Many of these terrorist plots have been initiated by security services, enticing gullible young men into attempting a slaughter and the ones that are real killers are just that – killers. News agencies don’t mention that ‘white’ criminals are Christian. Even worse than that, ‘terrorism’ is only mentioned if the perpetrators are suspected to be Muslim.
For instance, if we are to believe that Stephen Paddock was the lone gunman in Las Vegas (which I don’t), were the victims ‘terrorised’? The media says not, purely because he wasn’t a Muslim. How ridiculous and indeed bizarre is that? I think there could be fewer situations that are more terrorising than being amongst that crowd a few months ago.
The acts of terrorism the West is exposed to are a meagre response to the crimes inflicted on other nations and the perpetrators have nothing to do with any religion. It is an obscene list of events that has nothing to do with Islam. However, we do need to look at how we allow our politicians to commit these crimes. In the wider world, we are constantly encouraged to be accountable for our actions, so why are our politicians virtually exempt from (not just) moral condemnation but also the full force of the law for the state terrorism inflicted on people that aren’t a threat to us?
The politicians who direct our military and create crippling economic sanctions on their victims appear to be immune to the blowback felt by the rest of us.
The recent scare at Oxford Circus which resulted in pandemonium in central London appears to be a dispute between two travellers. The event is proof that ‘our’ lives have been changed by the threat of terrorism. We have become scared of our own shadow. The reality that gangs of criminals around the inner cities are an everyday threat is made much worse because thousands of police have been removed from our streets. Meanwhile, the money poured into the ‘security’ industry is mind blowing, despite statistics pointing toward a miniscule threat.
Either way, the people governing us are even less likely to become a victim of the exaggerated terrorism and they know it.
