The nightmares can also come from our subconscious mind and strike while we are walking, gazing out the window, watching what passes for television or simply staring into the far end of the room but not really seeing anything as you’re listening to your mind. For me this often happens when I am sifting through articles and reading one which just did not quite measure up to expectations so you continue seeing the world but hearing a different tune, or set of thoughts. OK, maybe I’m a bit different getting stories weaving between two extremes, in this case the near reality which is going to have serious consequences as the masses try to continue to differentiate between the events in their world from the events in the Middle East.
The recent Islamist terrorist shooting in San Bernardino on December 2, 2015, where fourteen people were killed and twenty-two people were seriously injured and the terror couple were caught traveling on their way to another location and had the SWAT team not been at a training exercise with all their equipment and vehicles within a few miles from the last reported position and were able to intercept the Islamist couple and end their rampage before they reached their next location and victims. It was discerned the couple had planned to continue their murder rampage until stopped. The very recent execution style assault on a Philadelphia police officer where thirteen bullets were fired at Officer Jesse Hartnett while he was in his patrol car with the self-declared jihadist and suspect, Edward Archer, told homicide investigators he “pledges his allegiance to Islamic State, he follows Allah, and that is the reason he was called upon to do this.” Below is coverage from ABC in the United States with video of the assault and the officer responding and giving chase miraculously despite three bullets in his left arm making it unusable yet Officer Jesse Hartnett managed to shoot and wound the assassin leading to his being captured.
I can barely hold my excitement to hear President Obama explain how this has nothing to do with Islam because the man was deranged and though he was responding for the Islamic State which we all know had been contained by President Obama’s coalition and they too are not Islamic as Islam is the religion or piece, oops, did I misspell that, so sorry. The truth is that there have been numerous terror attacks since initial World Trade Center bombing on February 26, 1993 where a truck loaded with explosives detonated at approximately seventeen minutes past noon and killed six people and injured more than a thousand people causing a reportedly half-billion dollars in damage. It is claimed that the main terrorist players were rounded up and caught though we will never know for certain. The one certainty was that the plotters were all Islamists and they were driven by the same book, the Quran, which is actually two books written in two cities and two opposing viewpoints, the Medina Quran and the Mecca Quran representing the contrasting periods and fortunes in Muhammad’s life. The followers who finally recorded the modern Quran almost two centuries after Muhammad’s death decided that the verses they attributed to Medina were to supercede those written after the original supernatural inspirations Muhammad received in a cave outside Mecca from spiritual visitation of the Archangel Gabriel as the Medina’s verses served their motivations of conquest and spreading Islam and their rule by their swords. The people the FBI claimed were the main forces and minds behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing are pictured below.
The ringing sounds of Islamic terrorism is something Israelis do not candy-coat, though the level of violence required for even Israeli politicians to actually label an act as terrorism is often beyond belief. Huge stones, cinderblocks, firebombs and mob massing and surrounding a car using tire-irons and bats to break the windows and assault the occupants are not reported or commented on as terrorism unless there is a rising of emotion of the Israeli people or they cause a fatality or something else forces such an attack into the news cycle. Shootings where the shooter does not injure anybody, or worse, are often simply dismissed as harassment, not actual terrorism, and we don’t even have anyone once known as Barry Soetoro for the media to run to for the wisdom of the ages or at least the Maison Blanc. The proof is the stabbing terrorist attacks which hit the news cycles at the end of September and into the third week of October and since have gotten spotty coverage at best but these stabbings have continued at near the same pace and silence even in much of the news in Israel. Arab attacks and murderous intents and actions against Israelis are not newsworthy.
On the other hand, especially in Haaretz, the Duma Jewish perpetrated arson terror attack was given constant daily deep coverage and was considered a national disgrace, and it was. But why was that two Jews who acted possibly out of frustrations similar in magnitude and importance to these youths as the Arab’s are constantly excused for their acts because of frustration but Israelis, especially Israeli Jews are supposed to be above such distresses and act more morally and never give in to such distress in their lives and just bear anything and everything and never lash out in violence. Such would be a nice thing if the world were anywhere near perfection but the world is not. If the world was perfect the promises to the Jews and the Zionist Congress that all the lands west of the Jordan River would be sacrosanct reserved throughout time immemorial but that had been made into a mockery. Stabbings daily and that is considered just the price of being a Jew in the Middle East as if the half of the Jewish families in Israel who lost all as they were forced from the Muslim lands where their families had lived through good times and not so wonderful times where being a Jew brought scorn and abuse and times of acceptance or at least passivity and were suddenly facing increasing belligerence and violence forcing them from their homes and businesses leaving all wealth behind. These Jews arrived mostly in Israel and were met over the first decade of Israeli existence by a core of Jews who had been residing in Israel and an equal number of survivors from Europe and the death camps and knowing they too could never go home again and were leaving all behind. The real miracle was that these difficulties never produced any refugee camps or any sob stories to the world on how things which were done to them were so terrible that all they could think to do was sit in an apartment complex and wait to be returned to a place that likely no longer exists and for that they have basically sacrificed three and four generations of their family as they are held behind high fences and barbed wire and some even with guards by their own fellow Arabs.
So, Arab refugees from the late 1940’s through the 1950’s and through the 1960’s are to be supported by the world and because their leaders refuse any settlement which does not end the existence of a Jewish Israel. Now Europeans and much of the third world as well as Barry Soetoro, oops, I meant President Obama all insist there must be almost another quarter of Israel sacrificed in the name of peace and equality. This sacrifice would include the most emotionally, religiously and historically precious locations to be surrendered and placed beyond the ability of Jews to easily visit. Just as today it requires a military guarding force provided by the IDF using cover of darkness to visit Joseph’s Tomb despite promises by the Arab authority leader, Mahmoud Abbas, and their lead liar, I mean negotiator, Saeb Erekat; their promises for these other locations would be equally as false this time as they proved last time. This is the great deal which sacrifices what was promised lands by the League of Nations and presumably by the United Nations but instead of returning lands stolen through act of war started by at the least a half dozen Arab States in 1948-9 to the rightful nation who liberated these lands west of the Jordan River and the world knows all of this but refuse to even permit the Jews their Promised Lands in peace. There is only one Jewish States while there are twenty plus Arab States with Hamastan founded from lands stolen by Egypt and then stolen again by Hamas founding their own little fiefdom and the world wants us to allow another rocket launching failed state all along the high ground overlooking the heart of Israel giving the rocket launchers line of sight to correct their aim. Unlike Hamas who in Gaza are shooting over expanses of desert where the land is less developed, the other state proposed by the worlds arbiters of what is fair to handicap Israel want to place rockets to fire where every rocket would be bound to strike something unless intercepted by Iron Dome which would mean requiring Israel to fire a ten to twenty thousand dollar interceptor at every last fifty dollar rocket. That would be a surefire economic disaster in the making eventually, and not all that eventually, such would bankrupt Israel which somehow appears to be the plan.
But the world is about to realize the real danger of terrorism in this world. The levels of terror attacks suffered in Israel will never be visited on the world, and for that we here at BTC are glad as nobody should be forced to suffer the constant terror levels suffered in Israel. Israel has worked to keep the price on both sides to a minimum but this latest Intifada if it continues to escalate as it has shown is likely the price will become very high on both sides. No matter the level the terror rises to in Israel as the other shoe is preparing to drop and, as the Reverand Wright would say, “The chickens are coming home to roost.” The first show has been the sporadic terrorism throughout the developed first world but nothing even remotely comparable to what Israel faces. That will become a closing gap as time passes and the Islamic State and Iran each try to make the biggest splash in Europe and the United States with al-Qaeda and Taliban amongst others also in the mix seeking fame and followers. The world thinks what they will; as soon, when the Islamic State, Hezballah and other injected terror leaders who are amongst the ‘Syrian refugees’ and lone wolves each seek the glory of constant news coverage and their fifteen minutes on the world’s stage, will erupt in a symphony of terror. When Iran decides it’s their turn to take center stage, then the real horrors will begin. Iran has not had Hezballah training terrorists in the Tri-Border Region in South America since the 1970’s and possibly even earlier for nothing. Hezballah has trained terror cells and inserted into the United States and others in Mexico working with the Cartels.
These plans have been in the works for decades and the level they will unleash will be horrific and will cause an upheaval as the people demand of the government protection even at the price of their freedoms being temporarily curtailed. Those freedoms will never be restored as once gone government will feed on the added powers. Once drinking the intoxicant that is the power of a police state, always will continue the police state. That story has been written and been the last stage before the democracy dies throughout history and in every case the people always claimed the same thing as they would sing these words as they watched all hope slowly dim, “It can’t happen here.”
Sing the extra verse with the ending fade out:
Honest, it can’t happen here; can it, well, please tell me, truthful or not, it can’t happen here. If I say it, sing it, shout it out drowning the news and those screaming about doom, then it can’t happen here, can it?
