Lone Wolf Terrorist to Waves Over Europe as the World Turns Over

 

 

Why is it almost every terrorist is said to be operating completely independently from any of what seems to be obvious ties to the rest of humanity. They are workplace violence, a frustrated individual, or any other denotation possible or; if no other excuse will pass the smell test, they are the lone wolf acting completely in a vacuum from any influence. Then the news leaks out after a few days and continues over a few weeks until we finally find out it actually was violent extremism committed by a lone wolf who was acting out his disturbed visions that have nothing at all to do with Islam and he was just parroting something he saw on the Internet when he was screaming “Allahu Akbar” but they are looking through his computer and apartment and there was literature which was anti-Semitic and prayed at the neighborhood Mosque but that does not link their actions to Islam which is the religion of peace. Then in Europe, Canada or the United States they warn that there will be extra security guarding Islamic places and anyone even considering even looking askance at any Muslim will be prosecuted. As noted in the pie-chart below, there are over four times as many hate crimes committed against Jews than there are against Muslims and against the other religions the factor is even higher. The facts are that over half of all religious based hate crimes are committed against Jews but the news and the media and the White House all act as if there was a hate crime epidemic against Muslims to the point that they require entire departments of Federal, State, County, City and neighborhood watch groups out in force to protect Muslims from the wave upon wave of assaults. Even after the September 11, 2001 terror strikes against the two World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and but for the heroic actions by the passengers downing the airplane risking and losing their own lives to save others there would have likely been further tragedy in Washington D. C. and there was less than a two percentage point rise that year and an actual slight decrease the following year out of the total religiously based hate crimes committed with the number of hate crimes against the Jews significantly higher in those years as well of approximately the same four times the frequency and victims. You could never tell this by the media and White House and Attorney General’s Office. To find the reality one need check with the Federal Bureau of Investigation figures or happen across an article which has the information. These numbers were all for the United States, we should not even need to talk about the problems in Europe where being Jewish means hiding every vestige of your religion or remaining within the limits of your community as the Ultra-Orthodox Jews do as there is something to be said for safety in numbers. In most European countries the rate of crimes targeting Jews in particular have doubled and tripled with many Jews choosing to flee Europe with many seeking refuge in Israel as they are safer in Israel than they are in Europe. Believe it or not, the figures prove that even including acts of terror, not only Jews but any Israeli of any religion is safer in Israel than in Europe, and yes, safer than in the United States from being the victim from any act of crime or terror.

 

 

Hate Crimes Motivated by Religious Bias for 2014

 

 

Aside from the hyperventilating over nonexistent persecution of Muslims, there is the refusal by the President of the United States to identify Islamic extremism and the violent terrorism it spawns by numerous streams of incitement which has been perfected in its delivery and constantly evolving to use modern social media to great success and society’s detriment. In Europe the problem extends much further than simple terrorism. It would behoove the United States, Canada and the rest of the Western World to learn from the problems being faced by many places throughout Europe in accommodating and adjusting the influx of “refugees” in adjusting and living within the norms expected by European culture. Should the Europeans fail in accommodating and assimilating their flood of immigrants from the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) then their entire societal model will necessarily change and not necessarily for the better. Europe has enough problems one of which may have directly led to the threat of Islamic inundation leading to an Islamic revolution taking over numerous, if not the majority, of European governments and after electing themselves into a controlling majority in a ruling coalition then proceeding to alter the Constitutions to fit closer and closer to Sharia and subjugating the indigenous population causing flight out of Europe likely to the United States and Canada or possibly South America with the Jews also leaving potentially to Israel. Europe holds the third largest Jewish population after Israel and the United States. Watching the problems in Germany, Scandinavian Nations and select other areas of Europe and remembering the riots which broke out in numerous Islamic suburbs where cars were set alight and police initially attempted to escort firefighters and equipment in to extinguish the fires but when they came under assault of bricks, rocks, bottles and other projectiles and even shooting in some instances that the French government and authorities simply decided to ride out the storm and wait for the riots to work their course and die down which eventually they did. The real crimes occurring has been the refusal of the governments to actually enforce any laws when it comes to the “refugees”, or should we call them by their actual true title, invaders while the police stand down unless some indigenous person should resist the “new” culture taking Europe by storm while the media remains mum because there is no longer a free and independent press, only the leftist drivel approved by Merkel or whichever leftist leader is strangling the media, handcuffing law enforcement and demanding the people smile and enjoy the new normal. If not already, continue these policies for the next six months and we can put a fork in Europe because it will be done.

 

The only thing left to do is get any relatives remaining in Europe out and safely back to somewhere where the rule of law and sanity still reign. Depending who wins the election coming up in the United States and if they implement policies as have the self-destructive liberal politicians, who have more power than sense, then the results will mirror Europe. If Pierre Trudeau in Canada continues to pursue the same policies now destroying Europe and they are adopted by the United States, as they have both already taken the first baby steps, then followed to their logical end, we will see similar results as in Europe. The result will be that the Free World will have invited the barbarians into the house and yet they will wonder why the walls are crashing down around them. Of course it will do little good to save the remnants of Europe if the same policies are to be followed throughout the Western World, as then both populations can contemplate where to retreat to next. Wherever it is the ultimate civilizational suicide will be complete and the Islamic world will be armed with all the nuclear weapons and other military capabilities which used to be the defenders of Europe, the United States and Canada and the rest of the Western World such that there will be no safe place to hide. Maybe Alaska will become a country after all just as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “If you [Europeans] committed this big crime, then why should the oppressed Palestinian nation pay the price? This is our proposal: give a part of your own land in Europe, the US, Canada or Alaska to them so that the Jews can establish their country.” Alaska may be the place but not for the Jews of Israel but for the remnants of Western culture outside of Israel.

 

Of course this would make the Israelis the true underdog they have always been despite what the media likes to portray. The Palestinian Arabs are just the shock troops for the Arab world and are being mercilessly used by the Arab Muslim world as expendable attack drones which can be thrown at Israel ceaselessly as to the Arab world the Arab Palestinians are seen as inferior mindless tools for killing as many Jews as they can before they are exterminated either by an Israel driven past their breaking point, which may not even be possible, or by their Arab “betters” who would have no use and would refuse them any dignity or allow them to reside in any lands the rest of the Arab world wins if they should ever defeat Israel. Of course almost everybody would claim that saying such about the Arab world is insane but they would not correct such content as it has been this same Arab world which had assisted in funding and providing school books, maps, teaching aides, media presentations, propagandas in social media, on television, in children’s programs, on the radio and throughout the Arab Palestinian society with the intent on fostering the martyr’s code and the concept of virgins in heaven and money for the family left behind. They have made a culture where murderers are the heroes and death in the way of Jihad is a blessing and suicide is glorified and turned from a sin to a meritorious way to die as long as Jews are also murdered. Their society pays people imprisoned for life for mass murder a higher salary than the average Arab worker and even more than their kleptocratic politicians. The society they have produced has youths as young as eleven and twelve taking a screwdriver, a kitchen knife, almost anything and attempting to stab armed soldiers and even after having been shot in the legs attempting to simply injure rather than kill and they lunge from the ground repeatedly. Fortunately most are disarmed and treated for their wounds in Israeli hospitals often receiving aid before the IDF soldier they stabbed as the gunshot wound is a more serious wound and the most severely wounded get first treatment, as insane as that might sound. Israel is a moral society with standards which are sometimes baffling but if pressed many will agree they are the correct thing for any civilized humane society to follow. We are pressed by Torah to treat the stranger amongst us as a brother and this is how we get to the idea of treating one who would just as soon murder us in our sleep before our own soldier simply because the terrorist is the one most needing our care. We also place a guard on them and do not place them in a room where others might be placed in jeopardy by the young terrorist. But when a society starts facing a minimum of three stabbing assaults every day one tends to forget to shoot to injure, especially those who are not soldiers or police but rather citizens who are licensed to carry a weapon and are armed and facing a threatening situation and even many of these people initially aim simply to injure but when the assailant continues to lunge and try to stab you there reaches a point where you shoot to end the threat. Then the world condemns Israel for shooting Arabs wantonly as if it is done as a spirt. We will see how Europe handles what is coming their way thanks to Angela Merkel, the European Union and the Islamic State and similar groups who are using the generosity of European governments to infiltrate and place terror organizers throughout Europe and soon there will be blood in the streets of Europe. We will witness how long and how many indigenous Europeans have to be stabbed to death or have boulders thrown through their windshields and side windows potentially injuring or murdering their child in the passenger seat before Europeans take to the streets and answer this threat the way Europe has answered similar threats, which that was not pretty either (ask Charles “The Hammer” Martel from the battle of Tours or the King of Poland Jan III Sobieski who was instrumental in breaking the siege of Vienna both of which we discussed here which was a predictive article about the threat facing Europe today from October 6, 2014). There is a crisis building in Europe of their governments’ own making and how it will end will depend largely on the Europeans themselves and should they ever regain control of their governments they might consider having children in sufficient numbers to continue a healthy balance in their population as this will be the reason the government bureaucrats will give for allowing the invasion of the civilization snatchers. Now those of us on the sidelines of Europe can only wait and pray for the best, whatever that ends up becoming.

There have been a number of prognostications telling the writers’ many separate and often distinct predictions. These predictions span from gloom and doom to the thrills once we combine with our technological inventions enhancing our lives in remarkable ways. Then there is the possibility we will face threats due to the singularity from advanced artificial intelligent robots which will have surpassed us and begin to leap so far ahead of our own technological knowledge and abilities that we will become either their pets or a nuisance to be eradicated depending on who you ask. There are predictions on the political level where China becomes the new eight-hundred pound gorilla on the stage and the United States falls into a weak second class state in the shadows or China falls economically and the United States rebounds to Africa becoming the new European style power and Europe degrades into economic ruin even dragging down the last of the economic engines in Europe. The one comfort I take from all these prognostications, even by some very well recognized editorialists and experts of which many will be unfulfilled, is that even if I get everything wrong, all I will have done is join an elite group who are secure enough to be wrong and admit it. The benefit of doing predictions is people will tend to forget those you got completely wrong if you hit a few dead on correct as people want to believe that the future is not as daunting and unpredictable as it actually is and take comfort in those predictions which give them comfort or support, what they had themselves been predicting. So, with the comfort that I will probably not be any more wrong than some who have become wealthy despite being wrong more often than not, here is what I actually fear may be coming down the road over the remaining two years of the final term of President Obama’s Presidency.

 

First we need to see where the world is now and try to find some similarities from history and narrow down those similarities until we find the closest match and then interpolate using that history and see where that leads one. The first and most obvious parallel is the beginning of the fall of Rome and the withdrawal from the world’s scene by the United States with their retreats from Iraq and Afghanistan. This is a false parallel which despite being false it has garnered a serious following. Further consideration leads one to look more at the entirety of the Western world and culture and an initial retreat from the Middle East followed by an infiltration and assault by the powers of Islam and one realizes that the correlation is closer to the slow and unalterable fall of the Eastern Roman Empire which was also known as the Byzantine Empire, of which the greatest defeat was the fall of Constantinople. Using this as a base we would need to try and discern if in this modern period where things can happen at unbelievable and unprecedented speed, the item one needs to do is find where the two main turns of history which eventually served to turn back the thrusts into Europe by the seemingly unstoppable forces of Islam which we can parallel with the Battle of Tours where Charles the Hammer Martel routed the Moorish Muslim troops ending their invasion into western Europe and turning them back depleted and without any reserve supplies which made the restoration of Spain possible, though the method of the Inquisition would be something we should endeavor to avoid at all cost, and the Siege of Vienna where the King of Poland reached an agreement with his closest neighboring nations for their promises to refrain from invading his lands while he took his entire army and marched to Vienna and relieved the siege turning back the Islamic armies and ending their thrust into eastern Europe. These two turning points are impossible to predict without the power of clairvoyance, something I freely admit I lack no matter what some people have claimed in my stead.

 

Islam is unlikely to be attempting any invasions of Europe in the near future as much of the Muslim world is too wrapped-up in their own troubles and conflicts within Islam to be taking on any outside wars. Syria has been wrapped in a destructive civil war with numerous outside forces warring on both sides of this devastating conflict which will leave Syria incapable of any kind of action for decades as they eventually will try to rebuild almost from scratch and build a new Syria. Who will be leading the nation of Syria is still unknown though it does appear that somehow Bashir al-Assad will remain in power though only in charge of a shell of his nation will have survived and most of the Syrian people will have fled the nation and as many as are able will probably choose not to return. Libya has continue its spiral decent into internecine violence composed largely by inter-tribal violence with occasional challenges to the relatively weak central government which has thus far been able to hold on to power. Iraq and Syria are currently sharing a serious threat in the form of an ever-growing force which began as a terrorist entity in the Syrian civil war and has mutated into a wannabe caliphate which has since grown into a formidable force across central parts of Syria and Iraq and has made threats against Iran, Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia and other nations which ISIS (still pronounced ‘is is’) believes are not following the Quran and are not ruled by proper Islamic rulers which they swear they will replace as they build the next Caliphate. They also predict that once they have set the world of Islam on the correct path and united all of Islam into their Caliphate they will then complete the task of making Islam the sole religion in the world. Egypt is recovering from their experiment with the rule by the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood and has returned to having elected a military leader as the President of Egypt. It remains to be seen whether President Sisi will remain a limited leader eventually stepping aside or if he will become the next military dictator of Egypt following the same route as his predecessors. Lebanon has been sitting on the sidelines of the Syrian conflict but has an investment in the Syrian war as Hezballah has, on the orders from their Iranian masters, been involved heavily in the fighting in support of Bashir al-Assad which has left Lebanon vulnerable, a vulnerability which may soon prove to be tested by some of the forces fighting against Assad in Syria as they view Lebanon as a fair target due to Hezballah fighting in Syria. Across most of the rest of the Muslim world there are no real nations which have the inclination or power to pose any real threat outside their own borders with a few exceptions. One exception is Pakistan which has a sizeable nuclear weapons stockpile but also has sufficient internal threats which prevent any adventurism and also Pakistan has one main adversary in India and is content to keep any violence between the two nuclear powered nations as quiet as is possible, a view shared by India. So, what might be the exception throughout the Islamic world?

 

Turkey and Iran are exceptions as both have avoided the kind of turmoil which has afflicted much of the rest of the Middle East and North Africa. Turkey under the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has a modern military and enjoys membership in NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) which they served as an important role against the Soviet Union as Turkey controlled the access from the Black Sea into the Mediterranean Sea and from there into the Suez Canal to the Red Sea and on to the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf or through the Strait of Gibraltar on into the Atlantic Ocean. Turkish roles within NATO had been challenging in recent years as they refused to cooperate with the United States in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and more recently worked against the United States in their efforts against ISIS only recently begrudgingly permitting any use of Turkish resources such as airfields for strikes against ISIS and probably under guarantees that these actions would also serve to remove their nemesis Syrian Dictator Bashir al-Assad. As President Obama has formed a close relationship with President Erdogan, the difficulties which logistically separated the two nations were all the more confusing. Even more confusing was that these difficulties caused little damage to the relations between the two leaders. That leaves Iran which has been playing a cat and mouse game with the P5+1 nations (United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany) in their ongoing and currently extended nuclear negotiations. These negotiations may soon be proven useless and no longer necessary and that has much to do with the potential future of our world.

 

The next items we face are China and Russia. China has hit upon some economic difficulties and is not expected to continue their high rate of financial growth for the ensuing years. A nation even with the governmental assistance given in China can continue to have a growth rate of over seven percent GDP growth forever as each year that level becomes that much more difficult to produce. The main item on China’s wish list is cheaper oil prices and a source of easily refined crude oil. China has a steady source at a decent price in Iraq but that oil is thicker and considered quite difficult to refine and does not have a high production quality. On the other hand, the sweet crude oil available from Saudi Arabia is more expensive. Meanwhile, Russia is completely dependent on their oil and gas sales to prop up their collapsing economy and nation. Russia is suffering from one of the highest rates of population decrease with projections placing their population numbers to be half of their current numbers by mid-century which is astonishing. Russia is thus dependent upon high oil prices, exactly the opposite from China. This is where the interesting predictions begin. The challenge is to find a solution to the problems of the three nations, China, Russia and Iran, which is possible and credible. While it may appear impossible to satisfy both the Chinese requirement for cheap oil and the Russian desire for high oil prices, but that is not entirely true. In order to satisfy both the Russian and Chinese demands one would need to control vast percentages of the supplies of crude oil. Enter the Iranians into the equation. Add the possibility that there has been a mutually beneficial arrangement since the beginning of the nuclear negotiations which have China and Russia on one side with Iran presumably as their adversary while China and Russia were part of the five nations presumably pushing Iran to give up most of their uranium enrichment program. Iran is suspected of having designs on the oil fields of their neighbors, especially those of Saudi Arabia, UAE (United Arab Emirates), Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait. Iran has all but become the ruling party in Iraq and has access if required of the southern Iraqi oil fields while ISIS has control of some of the northern oil fields from Iraq. The possible scenario would have Iran launch a full scale operation assaulting ISIS once they attack Bagdad under the claim that they were responding to a desperate plea for assistance from the Iraqi government. Then the Iranian military could transport an extremely large military force with full armor and other support towards Bagdad. Then, as their forces have closed and routed ISIS forcing their retreat, then Iran, under air cover, could swing their entirety of forces and reinforcements southward coinciding with a general uprising throughout the Northwestern provinces of Saudi Arabia by the predominantly Shiite population with assistance and weaponry provided by the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) with Russia and China both demanding the United States stand down. This attack would need to be launched before President Obama leaves office and the possibility that the next President of the United States might be more willing to come to the aid of their stricken ally. With Iran in control of the vast reserves of the oil wealth could then embargo the Western nations or simply the European nations allowing for Russia to be able to set their own price for oil and gas supporting their otherwise weak economy. Further, China could be provided with all the high grade cheap oil they could desire and Iran would be well on their way to establishing their hegemony over the Middle East and be close to ready for their assault to include the Muslim nations of North Africa into their control before then turning their attentions onto Europe and Israel. This is the potential nightmare which has a chance, hopefully smaller than it may seem in our nightmares, it is thoughts such as these which make me simply joyous when time passes and I am proven wrong, may that streak continue as every time I get one right I then spend weeks to years covering some relative disaster.

Will Europe Submit or Awaken?

There has been an immeasurable change in the fabric of European society with the influx of millions of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) who have brought their customs and religious beliefs with them. Europe has survived waves of immigrants into the individual nations for centuries, even millennia, but those influxes were intra-European transfers and not people from outside of Europe. Those historical immigrant transfers were often caused by famines, large local natural catastrophes, societal collapse as a result of government dictate forcing certain peoples to leave their locations over religious or other societal defining identities. But this time it appears to be very different as the new immigrants are not seeming to have any intent to meld with the existing society as the previous immigrants had done. Instead they appear to be carving out areas where they are planning to enforce their own laws, permit worship only of their religion, the imposition of dress codes for men and women, though the codes for women appear stricter, and they post signs warning any who enter their areas that they are expected to obey these foreign laws and codes, often despite the native individual not being familiar or even remotely aware of these codes and laws. These neighborhoods, which have become small inserts of foreign national identities right down to law enforcement, courts, religious observance, social custom, dress and other alien actions and understandings across virtually every strand of societal structures, are growing as the need to find workers to replace the worker lost due to negative growth factors which have been afflicting Europe for the past few decades but showing signs of a population decrease that is accelerating. What might this mean for the future in Europe and will it eventually strike anywhere else?

The bigger problem which has started rearing an ugly side to this influx of foreign elements into Europe is they have begun to grow beyond their small communities and are demanding ever greater accommodations. These demands are of a different nature than those made previously when groups migrated across Europe. These demands are for societal level changes replacing existing norms and even laws with alien laws and practices rather than simple acceptance and incorporating tolerance and show acceptance for them as a new subsect within the society. These newest immigrants demand not just acceptance but to supercede and replace the existing society and the insertion and replacement of the existing laws with those laws they brought with them from their homes amongst the nations within MENA. These demands have been exercised through disruptive demonstrations often using a political correctness against the existing norms or conjoining their political viewpoints intertwined with their demands for societal accommodation by altering laws and societal norms. We have seen them take the forefront of demonstrations against Israel and using them as a springboard to press their views into the society. Some of the demonstrations have taken on a violent contingency which came to the fore in news coverage recently in Paris with the assaults by mobs of immigrants of two Paris Synagogues. Are these disruptive actions a prognostication of the future and foretelling of bigger and more destructive episodes should their demands meet resistance or even blowback and refusal? That such is a valid debate and one which leans towards a dark and disruptive future should worry anybody who values peace and quiet over societal unrest.

If history is any evidence of where this influx of immigrants who are refusing to adjust and accept the existing society and are insisting that their societal norms replace those which have existed with only periodic adjustments for centuries all the way back to ancient Greece and Plato and Aristotle and maybe further to Moses and Abraham, there will be only one result and the victor in the struggle will erase the existence of the other’s culture. The last historic influx into Europe by masses of immigrants from MENA was during the last push by Islam to conquer Europe. Those Islamic invaders reached across Spain (Andalusia) and reached into southern France only to be turned back by a German General commanding French armies. This was the famous Battle for Tours where Charles the Hammer Martel turned back the Moors who would later be vanquished from Spain by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella along with the Spanish Jewish population in 1492. King of Poland, Jan III Sobieski led the entirety of the Polish army to relieve the siege of Venice and beat back the Ottoman Empire forces threatening the city, and with the aid of German and Holy Roman armies who were placed under the command of the Polish King as his superior ability as a commander was well established, led the relieving efforts to push the Ottoman Empire forces from the gates of Vienna in September of 1683. Could the recent influx of MENA immigrants who are Islamic be the tip of a stealth conquest of Europe by immigration, conversion and finally subversion?

There are many Muslims who live, work and interact within Europe with no apparent designs on changing European society and appear to simply desire to live their lives and worship Allah and practice Islam while melting into European society. Some research has indicated that even in these families, once they reach the third or fourth generation in their new European home their children tend to be more likely to become radicalized. Some researches claim that this tendency is due to their removal and lack of knowledge of the difficulties and disadvantages of life in their former home nation. I have a feeling the real source of this radicalization amongst the youths from these families is actually due to the teaching they are getting in the radicalized Mosques, especially as in many instances the radicalization is not necessarily reflected during services but is clandestinely secluded in their youth programs in order to influence the most vulnerable amongst us. It has been known that Islamic Imams have targeted prison clerical programs to spread Islam in the prisons systems. But if this was the entirety of the problem it would be manageable as disaffected youth falling for the promises of a solution to all their questions and an end to the turmoil in their lives is an old problem which has haunted parents and society for eons but has yet to lead to the destruction of a society, well, except for in the book “Lord of the Flies” where the society was constructed by young boys marooned by themselves on an island.

In addition to the disaffected youth there is the addition of thousands of immigrants who are adamant that they be permitted to not only bring their religion and customs with them from their homeland but also that the peoples of their newfound homes also adapt their lives not only to accommodate their way of life but to adapt their way of life in place of their current lives. As the numbers of these immigrants increase their demands are repeated in louder voices and with increasing violence. Currently much of their violence is limited to those who cross into their neighborhoods as they believe that within these communities their laws rule supreme. Where will these demands lead? Will Europeans be compliant and simply convert rather than resist the demands of their new neighbors or will the Europeans react as their history has demonstrated all too well throughout recorded history and even likely before? Earlier in this article were references to earlier European reactions to invasive Islam, but that was centuries ago and today’s Europeans are not your great-great-great-great-grandfather’s Europeans. Where this may be true, they are still Europeans with a rich history and age-old customs that lie as the basis for their societies and lives even today. The demands made thus far by the radical Islamic living in Europe have not crossed any societal lines or made any direct demands for actual changes in the basic societal norms as yet. What is likely to be the reaction when the demands change and start becoming more invasive on the culture? Imagine what will be the reaction of the average teen and young adult in Europe when the demand becomes they must no longer listen to any music other than the muezzins’ call. No more rock-n-roll or classical music or whatever your poison happens to be. What happens when dancing between men and women is demanded to be ended as the practice leads to familiarities which are forbidden. Further, what happens when included in newly forbidden actions demanded to prove the populations’ submission includes holding hands, choosing one’s own marriage partner, premarital dating, provocative clothing, and eventually forced conversion to Islam even if one has no religion.

How far will the demands need to go before Europe turns to what they do, what they historically have proven so capable at doing? There were those who took up the fight to force the retreat of the assaults on the Parisian synagogues which occurred after demonstrations became open riots which broke past police barricades and launched attacks on Synagogues numerous blocks away. There have been other incidents which have made the news as such resistances to the encroachments of Islam are currently the exception and not the rule. This may be partially because the Jewish population of Europe has been particularly sensitive as they have received a larger proportion of Islamic directed hatreds than any other group. This does not mean that there are not others who are sensitive to the encroachments but such are exceptions rather than the rule even in the Jewish European society. Any kickback to Islam may take some time before it becomes a reality in Europe and it may even come too late to rescue the European culture as it has evolved. And should Europe fail to resist the waves of change which are threatening to take place should Islam redefine European religion and culture, will Islam then take that victory across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States and then Canada? If Islam should transform Europe and then both the United States and Canada, where would such a wave of Islamic be stopped or even would it be stopped. I guess that question need be answered in Europe first and foremost as they are currently sitting on the front lines next to Israel, or perhaps immediately behind Israel. Perhaps Europe will eventually see Israel as the friend they potentially are capable of becoming and not the cause of all Europe’s ills. One thing which is certain, if the current conceptions and suspicions are not repudiated by facts and such facts taken into serious contemplation, our world will be facing a seismic change which while it may not turn the calendar back more than the almost six-hundred year difference between the Islamic calendar and the Gregorian calendar but it will slow the technological advance into the future and possibly do so permanently. If that were the only change such an outcome would produce.
