How Will Europe Handle Unlimited Terror

 

The unsettled Arab refugees are not committing terrorism, they are simply demonstrating. That is how they demonstrate, that’s all, nothing more. What Europe is experiencing now is simple unrest which will die down over time and as the weather cools. Demonstrators, almost without exception, tend to demonstrate only when the weather permits and once the mercury drops below 10oC the demonstrators will thin out and soon be so few that three police is all that will be needed to monitor their antics. If they were to get media coverage there would often be more reporters than demonstrators. But once spring comes and the weather tops 20oC then the numbers start to return and the demonstrations next summer will very likely qualify to be called riots. But even that is not the worst of what Europe will soon be facing. Europe needs to understand that the influx of refugees has only just begun and will slow until next spring when they will follow the frost line as they head north into Germany, France, Britain and the Scandinavian nations where the life is the easiest and the benefits the most generous. But even with the best of benefits, the most gracious hospitality, the nicest neighborhoods, accommodations for Islam as good as any Middle Eastern nation, and department after government department going head over heels to provide and meet even the most contrary set of demands will only strengthen the image of weakness as polite and caring social services is the most definitive sign of weakness to the Islamist.

 

Let us explain. By going the extra distances to meet or exceed their grandest expectations, this will simply produce further demands. If the government and the people continue to try and meet even the most absurd and grand of demands, the Islamists will interpret such action as being fed by an innate fear which drives this high level of accommodation and striving to please. The Middle East Islamist mindset expects minimal efforts to meet the mere minimalist needs of the people as their governments were designed more to enrich the klepto-politicians rather than meet the peoples’ needs. The European rush to meet and even exceed expectations is inconceivable and is interpreted as the ruling class being so fearful of their presence that they actually are not stealing most of the funds for themselves but instead actually providing everything promised and then some. That can only be undeniable proof that these Europeans are just as weak willed and timid, as these refugees had been told they were, thus the demands will simply continue to grow while their feeling of power will grow and this will lead to rioting as this is the first step in their uprising to conquer these lands for Allah. As soon as they have determined, whether accurately or because of misunderstandings, that the local and national government officials, and thus also the people, are dutifully cowed and showing the complicity of timidity, the Islamist instigators who were sent to organize the young men, which appeared to make up the bulk of the refugees by some miracle of nature, will instigate starting the terror war for Europe which will commence soon thereafter. This will present the European media a conundrum as they will want to display the Muslims as the wretched and destitute who have been given the short rift in life which supposedly explains their anger, something that the European media has often claimed causes the terrorism in Israel included with the assumption that Israelis detest the Arab Palestinian and the mistreatment by the Jews is what drives the terrorism. Obviously the treatment given by the Europeans has been the epitome of caring affection with largess and benefits showered generously covering every accommodation required, requested or anticipated yet still not preventing terrorist attacks which do resemble the current third intifada stabbing marathon and the horrific terror spree across Jerusalem and throughout the rest of Israel.

What will the reaction be across the nations of Europe? That will all depend on which party is in power during the coming rioting and terrorism replete with stone throwing, stabbings, firebombings, muggings and potentially shootings. Should the more leftist parties such as the Social Democrats or even more leftist of the parties be in power inactions and policy lock-up will be the result. If, on the other hand, a right wing nationalist party heads the ruling coalition then law enforcement might just be granted a green light to do whatever is required to restore order. But even with a rightist government run coalition in power, it is possible that the more centrist parties in such a coalition might take a more cautious approach to the problem thus hindering any actual use of overt force to quell the riots, stabbings, rock throwing, firebombings and other attacks such that limited police actions such as tear gas and possibly water cannons will prove ineffective against the terrorist acts which are actually life threatening. Needless to point out that should there be a terrorist suicide bombing with a sizeable loss of life then all bets are off as long as there is a reasonable government in power. Still, sufficiently left leaning governance which abhors the governmental use of deadly power would prove to have insufficient actions to really end the threats. Whatever the makeup of the government, after a full summer of such terrorism and sufficient death toll, the next election will see the elections of right wing, nationalist, law and order parties across all of Europe. The result will be a bloodletting should such terrorism and rioting continue as the government elected on an enforce the law and take no prisoners campaign, such a government could easily react by calling out the military to support the police or to enforce the law through use of martial law. Either way, the military is not a police force, they are not well trained in limited use of force and when facing potentially deadly force used against them a military unit is far more likely to shoot first and never ever consider asking questions before, during or after. After the first time the military lets loose with deadly force against rioters there will be a potential for a backlash against such use of deadly force that the government will quite possibly be forced into a state of inaction as they will be uncertain as to what the public actually desires and is willing to support. Such a response is also almost guaranteed as leftish NGOs will be waiting for just such a scenario to take advantage and attempt to push for the return of a leftist, peace at any cost, give the rioters and terrorists whatever it takes to make them happy as supplication with ice cream is always preferable to tear gas and bullets.

There is something almost poetic about what is coming down the pike for the Europeans who have been riding Israel about their reaction to such violence from the Arab Palestinians. There has been the accusation of Israel as racist, though Israel has Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Druze, Ethiopians, and the Menashe from India included in the IDF and all other aspects of society. There has been Europeans accusing Israel of being an Apartheid State which is even more ridiculous than the charge of racism and for much the same reasoning. Then there have been the claims that Israel has been practicing genocide against the Arab Palestinians but as they have gone from less than three-quarters of a million to over five million in numbers the Israelis have been doing one horrific job and have probably the worst efficiency rating of any group in actually carrying out genocide. Trust that the Israeli Defense Force is far too competent to have such disastrous results if their efforts really were to genocidally eliminate the Arab Palestinians. The idea to boycott any business beyond the Green Line because they are profiteering on Arab Palestinian lands actually works against those very Arab Palestinians as many are employed by those companies who the Europeans are boycotting. Who do you think will lose their jobs if those companies all relocated to within the Green Line and many of their Arab Palestinian employees having no pass to enter within the Green Line would be left without employment. Further, the Israeli companies provide the second highest paying positions, higher paying than even the Arab Palestinian Security Forces and only lower than the payments made to terrorist’s families who are in Israeli prisons for murdering more Israelis. If the aim was to help the Arab Palestinians and prove that peace does have a chance, then the Europeans would be supporting and encouraging such enterprises. But despite the facts on the ground, we have heard and read stories from the media in Europe and the United States where the stories often begin with the shooting death of an Arab Palestinian for undetermined reason, they were simply shot dead leaving a wife, kids, heartbroken parents, a sick brother or sister needing an operation or any humanizing softening of the story making their case one for sympathy and buried somewhere within the story it is mentioned that the now victim of horrific cruelty by Israeli police, IDF or vigilante overzealous citizens had just previous to their death been shooting, running-over, stabbing or hacking Israeli civilians at a bus stop, light rail station or other gathering place where the potential for carnage was higher right before being shot and was only shot to end their killing spree. Then there is this Arab Palestinian who set himself on fire pictured below.

There has been an instigating infrastructure already in place across Europe waiting for just the right time when there would exist sufficient young men who were unfamiliar with European society and the different moral codes and accepted lifestyles and so many other societal differences between Western Judeo-Christian ethos and Islam. Such individuals are primed weapons which simply need the right circumstances and goading to turn a frustrated youth into a riotous, violent weapon of jihad who only needs to be aimed at the soft underbelly of Europe to extract revenge for all the slights they have been convinced they were suffering at the hands of the Europeans. Of course the Europeans will be completely puzzled and confused unable to come to grips with this situation. They will try to find where they fell short in assisting these obviously angered refugees who the Europeans believed they had provided for their every conceivable detail except one, the complete surrender of their culture and beliefs that all men are created equal, replacing it with the even simpler code of each man for themselves, a far more primitive and less developed and uncomplicated, straight-forward culture.

Boston Marathon Bombing Terror Attack

I had the misfortune of being available to be watching the news when the explosions occurred at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The initial reports were about as confusing as they could be which is to be expected. The videos which were available did show two distinct explosions about a block or two apart. The confusion was palpable. The first action that caught my attention was the number of times the video caught young men, likely in their late teens, who acted reflexively not seeming to be thinking taking off their shirts to use them as pressure bandages. Their actions reflect that the promise that Americans react with generosity and when everything is going completely insane around them that many just instinctively seem to know what is required from them and commit to action without a second thought. This was also one of the comments made by British and French soldiers in World War II about the American soldiers who often acted with purpose and ingenuity even without having received orders and took actions addressing the situation with an immediacy which they found astounding. Seeing these youth take immediate action and performing the needed steps to dress wounds and offer what aid they were able before the official first responders had arrived on the scene was a promising sign that in such times our society can function as one hopes it would. That is how it should be in any society which values individuality and life. When you put those two items in the foremost place of importance you get people who become the first responders stepping up to do what is required to assist and attend to those who are in need. Watching those actions was reassuring despite the calamity of the situation which was simply horrific in nature.

 

The other thing which I am always amazed by is the rapid response from news networks in their coverage. In this case the fact that the location was the finish line of the event of the day in the United States probably allowed for there to be media coverage already in place. The one mitigating point against such being readily available was that the first line runners had finished the race at least two hours earlier and those finishing at the time of the explosions were the amateur runners who average four hours to complete a marathon. That would indicate that the target neither was so much high name recognition victims nor was it for highest body count as either of those objectives would have required the bombs to have been timed for when the first larger groups of the top runners were finishing. These bombs were targeting the average people who were participating in the race for their own personal reasons such as just to share in the experience, satisfy a life’s goal, joining a group running the race, private reasons or proving they could run a marathon, a fete in and of itself. The other differences in the coverage of these situations over time have become more reserved and more careful in reporting possible scenarios. If anything, the reactions have swerved to the point where they seem to prefer finding any explanation or way of perceiving what are obviously terror motivated being blamed to any other reason no matter how far the required stretch.

 

The news develops so painfully slow and even so a piece of information just revealed which points to Middle East style motivations in these bombings beyond the fact that the two explosions were timed to affect as many people as possible with their being timed so those running from the first blast would be passing the second location when it detonated. This new information was the presence of ball bearings or shotgun pellets that were propelled by at least one of these bombs. Also, unconfirmed reports are there is a person of interest who is under observation being treated in one of the area hospitals where the injured are being treated. Hopefully we will know more by the morning but seems like for now they are simply beating the same guesses and the few actual facts to death and interviewing anybody who they can find. I knew that they were getting desperate for somebody who would present a different slant when Sherriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona was brought on for an interview. What he could possibly add is beyond my limited imagination especially from across the nation and having the same television or radio new sources as the rest of us also have available.

 

On the purely opinion and speculation front, this attack should not be too surprising other than it has not occurred even sooner. Many of those who are familiar and witnessed the Second Intifada which was launched by Yasser Arafat against the Israeli public from September 2000, have wondered how long it would be before terror attacks against the American public of a similar nature where any event which would draw crowds or places where people congregate such as restaurants or shopping malls became targets for a series of bombings possibly even including suicide bombers. This has been a fear-filled anticipation which law enforcement and those tasked with protection of the American public have likely missed many nights sleep when there were heightened times of alert of which the public were rarely made aware. Should such terror acts begin to be perpetrated on an intensified and seemingly regular cycle of violence against public areas randomly across the nation then perhaps there would be checkpoints at all events and private security checkpoints being operated by private security providing companies similar to what became the norm in Israel. One can only wonder what would be the government’s reaction in such a situation. I have always thought that efforts would become far more obvious and publically viewable once the public had begun to feel vulnerable and made their fears known. Should Americans become inconvenienced by fears over potential terror attacks in their daily lives that the government would step up security and interjection to prevent even the slightest possibility of continued terror acts, the world would likely witness an elimination of terror leadership often with drone attacks as we have witnessed with somewhat more frequency during the Administration of President Obama on a whole new level. Hopefully, if this should become an unfortunate reality one would pray that it did not become a partisan argument and we would witness all of our politicians working together to make America safe for all the people in their daily lives.

 

By the time this article gets posted we will hopefully have more known about the bombing attack in Boston. We will probably hear from President Obama at some point once the government has definitive information and hopefully even suspects and assigned responsibility for this act of blatant terror. Watching as the news unfolds over the rest of the week should prove informative. Should the spokespeople from Homeland Security or any other branch of the government refer to this as anything other than terrorism would be very damning. Such, as unlikely as it would appear, is a possibility and as proof may we look at the Fort Hood shootings by Major Nidal Hasan where there were fourteen service people and family killed and thirty two more wounded which was determined by the Pentagon to be a case of “workplace violence” and not an act of terror. Also remember the Trolley Square Mall shooting where Sulejman Talović murdered five shoppers and wounding four others before he was shot by an armed shopper. On tapes of the shooting the perpetrator can be heard yelling “Allahu Akbar” while shooting at shoppers yet this too was determined not to be a terror related event. Now all we can do is wait and judge our government as they make determinations and the official story is revealed and we are able to compare that to what we all have observed on the reports that have been shown near constantly since the bombing of the Boston Marathon. The only other actions we can all make is to pray and hope for a full and rapid recovery of those injured and a complete emotional healing of those stricken by this horrific attack.
