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.

Wars of Vital Importance, Historic and Current

 

The name Arab/Israeli Conflict, or the newer more scandalizing title of Israeli/Palestinian Conflict, is actually, if we were to be honest with ourselves, the Islam/Judeo-Christian War for World Domination. What makes this name so difficult for Western minds to wrap their neurons around is because neither Christianity nor especially Judaism has any desire to rule the world but the same cannot be said in any form of honesty of Islam. Yes, the Christians originally had desires to rule the world and becoming the sole or at least the dominant religion on Earth. The leaders of Christianity were disabused of that notion at some point during the Enlightenment at the same time as the concept of a separation between any formal control of governments by religion nor allowing any state religion to be enacted or religion be favored by the government. So Christianity has adopted the concept of a division making religion free from the influences or restrictions of the government though voters of any specific religion are permitted to actually place candidates up for election, they are just restricted by the various governments in the Western World from showing any partiality, support, legal privilege, or other favorable treatments which have been upheld by the courts. The Church of England even though technically a state founded religion; they receive no real preference as a rule throughout the West.

 

Islam, and both the Sunni and Shiite Muslims are not so restricted and everywhere they have gained sufficient power the Muslims will do all within their power to forge Islam as the sole religion permitted by the State. Saudi Arabia has an official religion of Sunni Islam while Iran has an official religion of Shia Islam. They are far from alone. Currently Iraq is having a war, identical to what is happening in Syria, to decide which version of Islam will be supreme and dominate over the other with Iranian forces led by the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) and with Hezballah support fighting with the remains of the Iraqi Army which has either murdered or forced desertion of any Sunni Muslims making the Iraqi military a purely Shia; or with Syrian forces remaining faithful to Bahir al-Assad and his Alawite Shia Muslims, outfitted military while the central Sunni parts of Iraq and southern and central Syria has fallen under the control of the Islamic State which represents Sunni Islam. The final insanity which is today Iraq as well as Syria is populated by Kurdish peoples who have made their two areas in Iraq and Syria into a singular autonomous zone and their militias are fiercely defending their people despite lack of proper assistance as they had been promised and against any bombing by Turkish Air Force or other interferences by any other forces in the area and would likely be content to just retain their lands and not go on any offensive to gain lands though they might try to reacquire the lands they lost to the Islamic State and perhaps assist the Yazidi retake their mountainous region from which they were forced to flee by what was then known as ISIS and now has changed their preferred name to Islamic State.

 

 

Yazidis who left the Sinjar Made the Journey to Iraq Where Are These Refugees Now Does Anybody Really Care

 

Islam, neither Shia nor Sunni, have ever experienced a reformation nor have they ever forsaken the concept of world dominion. Both Shia and Sunni still believe they should not only be the preeminent for Islam but also the foremost religion on the face of all of Earth. Further, Islam fervently believes that any lands which have ever come under the rule of Islam must remain under the rule of Islam for all time and must never be surrender no matter the cost. This has been true concerning Andalusia which was the Islamic name given to Spain and Portugal when they fell under Muslim rule but were freed beginning in 1492 when King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella began the reconquest of Spain and the Iberian Peninsula as well as the Spanish Inquisition which forced the peoples to either flee, convert to Christianity, which meant Catholicism, or be put to death, a very similar fate befalling those who come under the forced rule of the Islamic State except they demand you convert to Sunni Islam or face torturous death which they can publically display on the Internet using such barbarity as a lure to gain followers and to impress fear on their enemies, which are all who are not Sunnis Muslims under Islamic State rule (it had to do with that rule the Earth thing). This is also the reason that no Muslim entity can ever make a peace with Israel which does not entail transforming Israel into a Muslim ruled state with the Jews at best permitted to live as Dhimmi and pay the special Jiyza tax for as long as their Muslim betters permit their existence as a protected second class citizen lower than the Muslim children’s pets which can end at any time at which it will be decided what the fate of those refusing to convert will face, expulsion or execution. Additionally, there is the concept that the Islamic messiah can only come when the Muslims are fighting the Jews everywhere they can be found and the trees and rocks will call out to Muslims saying, “Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” There is presumably an exception made where only the Gharkad tree (the Boxthorn tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews. This will presumably only happen when the warriors of Allah, the holy Islamic armies have had one side prevail eliminating the other between Shia and Sunni and the winner of that struggle is close or has acquired complete rule over the entire planet, then the final struggle which commences with the hunting down and extermination of the Jews as the Jews were the first to refuse to accept Allah or Mohammad as a prophet and secondly the followers of Islam believe that the Jews murdered Mohammad through poisoning. Further, there is the rallying cry used by Muslims during the rioting and demonstrations to taunt the IDF, police or other Jews which goes, “Khaybar Khaybar, ya Yahud, Jaish Muhammad, sa Yahud,” which means, “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.” Below is a video of the actors in an Arab Television Series Khaybar describing the themes, characters and even some of their roles in the shows in their own words for Egyptian television as advertisements for the show before and while it aired translated by MEMRI.

 

 

 

 

There have been in history two main thrusts by which Islamic armies attempted to conquer Europe, one from North Africa into Spain and repulsed at the Battle of Tours where Charles the Hammer Martel repulsed the forces of the Umayyad Caliphate under the command Abd Ar-Rahman Al Ghafiqi. This was the thrust from the west in October 732. The other main assaults came after the fall of Constantinople where the forces of the Ottoman Caliphate (Empire) twice made attempts to seize much of Europe and were likely hoping for their conquest to lead them to Rome itself. Both times, as fate would have it, their efforts came to an end on the outskirts of Vienna. The first battle came in 1529 with Suleiman I as the commander of the Ottoman Caliphate forces with two assisting commanders, Grand Vizier and Pargalı İbrahim Pasha. A combination of causes ended this thrust with the inability to breach the walls and deteriorating weather and excessively long supply lines weakening the Ottoman forces which were outlasted and had to retreat. The second thrust came in 1683 culminating on September 11 and 12 after having begun to lay siege to Vienna on July 14. The crucial turning point gave this battle a hero when King John Sobieski III of Poland and his heavy cavalry (Polish Hussars) ride in to crush the Ottomans wearing heavy plate (pictured below) and carrying pikes on horseback. King Sobieski III leading approximately eighteen thousand heavy horse cavalry, some of the finest in Europe at the time, supported by fifty to sixty thousand German and Austrian troops making up the Holy Roman Army broke the siege and saved Europe once again at the gates to Vienna.

These are the furthest extents to which the armies of Islam ever attained before being repulsed by the European defenders. These defenders are almost nonexistent today and the armies of Islam invading Europe are disguised as refugee families with babies and small children if one is to believe many of the pictures which are often chosen to make the greatest impact and engender as much sympathy for the Islamic refugees within which is the initial seeds for a future army which will rise up all across Europe and the continent will be lost in a single day. The invasion is being planned now and is in progress yet one would be hard pressed to find a single Islamic soldier who is ready to rise up today. The majority of the refugees, the ones who are not Iranian, Pakistani, Taliban or Islamic State planted organizers and eventual leaders, are actually refugee families and single mothers whose husbands have died or been impressed into serving one of the warring parties, are seeking a better life. These refugees will more resemble the families who immigrated to Europe seeking a better life and who contributed working and paying taxes. Even the children will mostly be upright and contributing members of European society. It will be the second or third generation educated either entirely or after school programs or through word of mouth and weekly or weekend classes which will teach them Jihad and slowly train an entire generation of Islamists ready to murder and even die for Allah. These will be children of middle class and upper middle class families which appear to have it all, television, microwave, two cars and kids spoiled and left alone after school to send to the Madrassahs because they promise a proper Islamic and general education but will also choose the leaders of each class to foment the hate and bile necessary for forming an army that will take the entirety of Europe for Allah. This is what Israel is currently facing as the entirety of social media, schools which indoctrinate, camps which provide military training, television which glorifies Jihad, sport teams which incite and teach that sports is a form of training for Jihad where each victory over the infidel proves Islamic superiority and all loses to infidels must be because they cheated or the officials stole it for them and this will build resentment.

 

We watch this in Israel taking place in Gaza and the Arab areas of Judea and Samaria. Since the signing of the Oslo Accords in September of 1993, the Arab areas in Judea and Samaria as well as Gaza have run their own schools, collected their own taxes, collected their own garbage, used largely Israeli provided electricity and water without making payments to the independent private companies who have had to raise rates in Israel to cover the literal tens to hundreds of millions of dollars, let alone shekels, and run their own governments with Gaza run by Hamas and Judea and Samaria run by Fatah and they have even held an election; that’s right, just one election as Mahmoud Abbas rightly fears he would be unseated and lose his multi-million dollar schemes and perhaps lose a lot more. Their entire society is predicated on glorification of the martyrs and raising each generation to aspire to martyrdom and the murder of Jews; that’s right, murder of Jews as they are not satisfied with just Israelis, they mean every Jews even the most secular Jew living the life in Anytown, U.S.A. Mahmoud Abbas has stated any number of times that he demands all of Israel as he just did before the United Nations Human Rights Council session in Geneva where he claimed that the occupation had lasted sixty-seven years, from the founding of Israel and the inability of seven Arab armies to destroy the nascent Jewish State in its crib. These poor youths who are so brainwashed with hatred and so programmed to violence that they are literally bringing a knife or a rock to a gun fight and then their leaders whine about their being shot. One can only imagine what would happen to a Jew charging an Arab in Gaza City except for one small problem, they would never get that far without being shot dead on the spot as soon as they cleared the checkpoint to enter Gaza, and yes a Jew, if they were even permitted, would need pass through an inspection at the same checkpoint that Gazans must pass through to enter Israel. There are no Jews or Israelis living in Gaza and it has been completely turned over to the Arabs to rule and they have ruled that they should fire rockets into Israel ramping it up to hundreds a day until Israel attacks every two years and then they complain that Israel is suppressing their rights to fire rockets into Israel indiscriminately aimed mostly at civilians. Hamas claims they are targeting military targets because they define every Jew as a military target. Much of the deceptions here are due to definitions which the media never bother to discern. They just repeat the lie. The media know that Hamas and Fatah define every Jew as soldiers even in their swaddling cloths and yet to speak or even crawl let alone walk. The difference between Israelis and the Arabs is that where the Arabs celebrate the deaths of each Israeli and celebrate the death of each of their own children attacking soldiers with kitchen knives and many celebrated the 9/11 attacks handing out sweet cakes and candies, the Israeli by and large mourned each and every one of these deaths and will continue to mourn every senseless death in this endless war. The saddest truth is the only way this Arab war with Israel will end is either Israel along with every Jew on Earth is murdered or Israel deals the Arab nations such a defeat that when their children in a thousand years hear the sound of an airliner flying lower than normal will quake and ask their mother, “Mommy, are we going to die now?” This is not what is desired as living together is far more preferable than this constant fighting and deaths of our children on both sides and our older citizens who are well beyond being capable of hurting anybody. Any senseless death is a death too many and there have been far too many on either side. Unfortunately the leadership in Israel will remain unable to do what is necessary as they fear that others might say nasty things about us and denounce us unless we allow ourselves to be slaughtered just as we allowed before we gained our own nation. I want to end with a question for my fellow Jews; how many of our infants need die, our youths, our teenagers, our octogenarians. When do we decide to do what is necessary and right for us, and in the end for the Arabs, to end this farce from September 1993 already and begin to build a society which respects Arab and Jew, ending the incitement and sending the instigators packing! When?

Once a while ago there were three leaders who defused the terrors and monsters of their day. There work took a while longer and they may never get the credit they deserve. They were the magic combination which comes around only when things seem darkest. In a much earlier time the combination of leaders need not all be present on the world’s fields of battle at the same time, but the world moves at a different pace these days. The old team which between them staved off Europe falling, thus eventually led to our modern age as we have known it, consisted of one hero in the west of Europe, The Battle of Tours pitting Charles the Hammer Martel defeating the Umayyad Caliphate led by ‘Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, which halted the Islamic threat from advancing further eastward and eventually led to the forced retreat of Islam from the Iberian Peninsula under the reign of terror known as the Spanish Inquisition established in 1478 by Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile, a retrograde purge for which Spain would never quite recover as that evil, or is as some might claim the purification, left Spain without a curious mind in all the realm as the Inquisition allowed not such stray thoughts other than those found in the ‘Good Book’. A few hundred years later the Ottoman Turks were prevented from further adventures in Europe being turned back at the Battle of Vienna by a somewhat unusual hero, King John III Sobieski of Poland who struck a deal whereby his lands would be left untouched by the greedy hands of the other barons and monarchs while he and his entire army would cross to the southern end of Europe and free Vienna breaking the Ottoman siege. This would stall and lead to the end of Ottoman expansion into Europe.

 

Between these two battles was a smaller battle that gained a larger than life share of attention from historians but was still none-the-less of great importance by what it avoided. The battle of which so much is made was the almost war that King Philip II of Spain decided to bring to a conclusive end and forever rid England of its Church, which followed not the Pope in Rome, restoring the rightful ruler of Christendom, Pope Clement VIII. The Armada was assembled and sailed on its historic mission which failed as it was made up of large and cumbersome ships of the old technology which favored the retrograde habits left over from the Inquisition and the purification of thought within the rule of Rome where science would become as close to defined as sin and as a threat to the sanctified rule of a Pope. The defeat of the Spanish Armada allowed the Church of England to prevail and their more open attitudes and the advantage of a strong political royalty which ruled alongside the Church of England but separate when decision of State were decided and the rule of law endured while the Church of England was to content itself with matters of faith. This partial separation between Church and the State had its periods of difficulty but it also permitted great strides in science which eventually spread through Europe beyond where the Pope had extended the Church’s strangling long reach from Rome. Eventually Rome too saw the light of the reformation and the separation between religion and government became the supreme and crowning achievement which was a long time coming with the many fits, starts and backtracks that make history fascinating. The ancient Israelites (or Hebrews) had achieved a form of separation between religious influences and the rule of a king as the limitations of each were delineated in Torah leaving certain powers to the King, others to the Clergy and the freedom to override either, though solely through admonition and persuasion, went the Prophets during their era. The one unfortunate result of the separation of Church from the matters of the ruling elites was that Europe no longer had a single overseeing power structure that the Pope provided when all prayed in the manner instructed out of Rome. This would eventually lead to many wars between the many states in Europe culminating in World War II. With these conflicts came technology which placed Europe as the crowning achievement of its time.

 

The modern realms had a tripartite power structure which managed to work towards their shared goals in what resulted in a mutually supportive series of actions despite there being no treaty or visible connection where these three strong leaders actually were collaborating, instead each added to the strength and power of the others with minimal appearance of collaboration. The three leaders were the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, who presided in that office from May 4, 1979 through November 28, 1990, while Queen Elizabeth II was the supportive monarch; Pope Saint John Paul II whose Papacy began on October 16, 1978 and ended April 2, 2005 and was a strong advocate for the rule of the people and their rights to a government deserving of the people and not the reverse and strongly held to the traditional beliefs working tirelessly largely behind the scenes while making appearances often with intent to back freedom and human rights for all people; and lastly United States President Ronald Reagan whose Presidency began on January 20, 1981 lasting until January 20, 1989 and the challenging force behind the scuttling of, as he coined it, the Evil Empire which was the Soviet Union which he did as much as anyone in facilitating the sudden downfall of the Soviet system and its iron curtain fell in under one week from the inception of the collapse of Communism in Europe. These three people had as much influence in their short decade where all three stood at the pinnacle of the power that swept in a new life and vitality born of freedom and challenging the greatest tyranny which stood in opposition to all these three defenders of the people, their individual rights and their right to choose their own governance and take control of their national ship and steer it through the ballot box and supportive of human dignity and the sanctity of life.

 

The world is once again spiraling into the void that lies beyond the cusp where freedoms are forever lost and tyranny and darkness extinguish the light of hope and the dignity of the spirit. Once again a retrograde influence is oozing from every corner advancing across the plains devouring everything in its path. The seriousness of this threat can be measured in the resisting flames in the eyes of those readying to fight a battle they know they cannot win but fight it they will in the hopes that somewhere a leader will have the courage to step forth and hold the line from crossing beyond the cusp and darkness once again gripping the heart of Europe. This threat comes from every front and ignores all borders and had many masters of which not a one honors freedom, individuality and the rights of the people to choose their own destinies and those who will lead them into the light and not towards the darkness. Currently the forces of freedom sleep as their ruling head of state has little stomach for such as the struggles barking from the far frontiers. This man who leads by following knows only that the previous leadership suffered from flaws that came from striving and this leader swears not to make such mistakes and instead retreats before taking stands and charging forth as doing so may reveal his flaws as it did his predecessors, but he realizes not that timidity and failure of vision are his flaws though his slow shrinking before every challenge is his plan to avoid mistakes. This comes when Europe also means to do well by refraining from the competition and instead seeks to facilitate and placate their way to oblivion that also lie beyond the cusp where greatness fails the timid and the freedoms hard won become easily surrendered and lost as they tip beyond the cusp and fall into the night of oblivion. There are the few who have clear sight and identify the threats but can the world rely on the strength of those who previously held roles of a supportive nature and have not been leaders of the free world as is now asked of them. The leaders in some instance are up to the challenge while in other leaders we see the rage of mediocrity hoping only to hold the line as best as possible waiting for one of the historic leaders to step forward and take the helm once more. What must the few who can lead do when the majority in the world are too tired, fat and lazy to put their shoulders to the wheel and strive to remain free, to stop the mad plunge and assure that their people are not forced beyond the cusp as from there the return will take generations and may never recover as some points, once crossed, may well mean there will be no return for this will be the final fight, the final battle between freedom and all that does empower the greatness in the human effort and spreads the light of freedom giving every last soul the power of flight so as to soar to new heights and new greatness ever pressing forward the boundaries of the mind through new equations which describe the actual functions of the universe and to eventually voyage into the far unknown and visit those points of light seen in the night’s sake for as sure as there is light there is hope for the future or the death of the individual spirit and the complete surrender to darkness forever extinguishing those final glowing embers of hope and heart as we fall beyond the cusp.

 

I have been asked by some close friends why I spend anywhere from three hours to all too often more than the eight hours demanded by a regular employ to continue to write to my slowly growing field of readers. Truthfully, I write in the hopes that somewhere an individual will find something that elevates them such that it awakens within them that spark of imaginations, the boldness to fight mediocrity, the hope that the future will continue to be filled with light and just one person at a time engage more to fight against the ever increasing flow dragging mankind towards a darkness that knows it has little time before the ingenious minds make that singular breakthrough which cements the condition of mankind at the cusp of a great adventure as we spread our wings and fly out into the cosmos and forever have insured that never shall all humankind be swallowed by the darkness beyond the cusp, beyond the whirlpool that swallows all imagination, enslaves every mind, demands total and permanent surrender, insisting on complete compliance never once to again dare. The war to remain in a place where there are a plethora of alternative paths and nobody is forced into the restriction of thought or held to a permanence of class must not be lost but there is this trepidation that the youth are not made aware of the coming threats nor are they largely taught to think independently and are made to believe that there are molds into which every person must choose their mold never to expand or reach beyond the restrictions of their mind. I write to express the truth that no two people are completely alike and thus there are no molds, only self-imposed prisons of the mind and the extinguishing of every flaming spirits as the mold makers impose a correctness of thought and attempt to ridicule and intimidate any who refuse to fold before their stifling approved dictionary for acceptable terms and their definitions. Look up the word ‘discriminate’ and unless you have an unapproved and ‘outdated’ dictionary you will not find it defined as a positive trait through which one sets standards for excellence in all things and thus chooses to expand and investigate things beyond their strict education. Trust that the elite are given the lesson that discriminate is not solely an evil where people are categorized by physical, racial, religious or national traits and all else is ignored. Discriminate also means to choose wisely, something the programmers of the public school system in too many nations is not a part of their indoctrination. Resist the limitations and open your eyes and if you suspect that the teacher is not teaching you how to think but instead what to think, start your own rebellion, a rebellion of one at first as you will need to first arm yourself and then set out to change the world. Presuming you are an adequately proficient reader this list should not take more than a few summer’s free time. With these and a few other items of personal interest, yours, not mine, you may be ready to set out but remember one other item, failure is what redirects efforts towards accomplishments and may even tach us some lessons along the way. There often is more to learn when we fail than when we finally persevere and reach the necessary and inevitable conclusion after exhausting every conceivable failure along the way, or so it may seem.

 

Rebel by reading books, yes they still exist, and writings not on the approved list. Read books such as Atlas Shrugged or other Ayn Rand writings, Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell who was a socialist programmed by his education but who became disenchanted as he experienced life and later in his life wrote of the evils of socialism as he had witnessed it applied in his day, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Unintended Consequences by John Ross. Read books about history especially by those who lived in the times they wrote about starting with The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain with special attention to his travels in what is today Israel and his commentaries on Jerusalem and Bethlehem as well as his travels through the deserted lands and remember that his writings came from a period immediately before Zionists began arriving in greater numbers. Read the Bible, both New and Old Testaments, the Quran, and the life of Confucius and Buddha for some insights into the differing religions and investigate ancient Egypt, Greece, Persia, Rome, Babylon, the Phoenicians, Hittites, Mongols, and acquaint yourself with Oriental religious and societal structures and their philosophies. Read some books on war and strategy as they are useful in life and interactions in the world even in peace times such as the writings of Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz and The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli. Learn to play both checkers and chess. Learn logic both as taught in math and electronics as well as philosophy, this will arm you in debates. Arm oneself with knowledge and one will be prepared for anything life sends your way.

 

I also write for my own catharsis as it soothes the mind when one is forced to organize their thoughts so as to put them down as coherent writings, and if my writings have appeared to not be as clear as hoped and lacking in total coherence, then imagine the jumbled mess in my head and what that must be like, and then imagine living with such a racket of fighting ideas but not ideals as without ideals we wander undefined through a dark forest of frightening thoughts forever to remain lost. The world seems that way at this moment and it will take a few miracles to set things back to right, but fortunately the world is full of miracles if one only knows not only where to look but how to look and discern the hidden miracles behind so much that happened every day. Smell the roses and drink some strong coffee and find some simple pursuits in life and make then your anchor by which to have a place or item you define as normalcy. Mine is real, good and strong coffee brewed from just ground whole beans blended often with little care and allowing the mixture to give me a little bit of surprise in life. A little sweet chocolate seems to make it so much tastier and gives it a round robustness that is next to addictive. But everybody deserves one addictive vice they refuse to surrender before the demands for normalcy. Ah, normalcy, how boring a thing can be.
