ISIS is Not the Progenitor of Vehicle Terrorism

 

Going back we have seen attacks where vehicles were driven through crowds of pedestrians or people at festivals in London, Brussels, Paris, Munich and Nice. In each of these attacks ISIS took credit hours later or even a full day or two as if they heard the news reports and decided that they could use claiming these attacks to sell their relevance. What was disgusting was the way the media played up their claims and stated that this was a new form of terror assault which was being used against the West. The media knows what they are selling is a completely false face for reality. They are fully aware because they have previously mentioned, we cannot quite claim they actually reported as they would give it play for a few hours before the story would quickly fade from the front end loaded news. These attacks where a terrorist uses a truck or car to run into people waiting at an inner-city light rail station or at bus stops or tourist attractions and when the vehicle finally was prevented from further rammings, they would then proceed to stabbing or shooting until finally and permanently prevented from attacking more innocent victims which have been occurring for over a decade. What, you do not remember these attacks? Well, do not worry, that has been the entire desired effect of the media reporting and why they reported these attacks for a couple of hours before retreating them to the running news stories at the bottom of the scene and then soon thereafter only mentioning it deep inside section B of the newspapers reporting them because these attacks have taken place in Israel. But why would the news do all they could to hide the news of these attacks in Israel?

 

There is a reason which actually only minimally has to do with Israel. What it has to do with is the fact that these vehicular, shooting and stabbing attacks are incited by and committed by the Palestinian Authority and the Arab Palestinians. These are the same Palestinian Authority and the Arab Palestinians which the European Union, United Nations, European nations, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many of the NGO’s from the free and developed world finance with ever increasing amounts of funding. Sure all the funding comes with the caveat that the funds must not be used for terrorism but for humanitarian uses. What is the dirty little secret is that the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and the PLO all give large sums of cash to the families of terrorists who either are imprisoned or have died committing terrorist actions commensurate with the numbers of Israelis they murdered and injured and list these dispensations as being humanitarian funding. This means simply that they are using the funds from the West to pay the families of terrorists because of the terrorism committed by their relatives. These funds are also used for their advertising which incited for terrorist acts to be committed in addition to their schools teaching their children to be future terrorists over their other lessons. They name schools, parks, streets, soccer tournaments, children’s camps and virtually anything possible after terrorist martyrs, another term used to glorify terror, martyr. Below are some of the advertisements from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and the PLO inciting the use of vehicles in terror attacks from the past decade. The ones towards the bottom are the most recent and most violent in its intent.

As is evidenced above these advertisements for terrorist acts using vehicles have gotten more polished and professional with time. There is also the incitement in children’s television shows and also on radio programs. The news reports on the terror attacks play up each attack as being committed by a proud and valued citizen of the Palestinian Authority and a role model for children and their funerals are turned into parades and great celebrations given to a lost hero of their revolution against the Zionist occupiers. And one more truth, the Zionist occupiers are every Israeli. Let us clarify, not every “settler” but every Israeli. When Mahmoud Abbas speaks of the occupation he claims that Haifa, Tel Aviv, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Eilat, Beersheva and all the rest of Israel as being occupied by the Zionists and as Palestine. He often states, even reported in Western media, that they consider all of the British Mandate as Palestine and the commentators in the media restate this as Abbas only meaning the West Bank, only Judea and Samaria, when they know just as we do that he means all of Israel. This is why he has stated that even when the two state solution is settled and the “peace” treaty signed; it will not bring an end to the popular protests against the rest of the occupation. It should be noted that popular protests actually means terror warfare and intifadas and other acts against Israel just as they use currently and they will continue to claim that they be funded by the world because there is still the remainder of the occupation. Trust us when we tell you the world will rush to write him more checks despite their own financial destitution because he is fighting the good fight, he is killing the Jews. Please prove us wrong but as he has received ever increasing amounts of funding as the Palestinian Arabs have murdered more Jews, is that simply coincidence or should more be read into this seeming correlation.

 

 

 

 

We have talked previously and given evidence of the morality of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) with testimony from outside observers such as Colonel Richard Kemp. But there is always the academic who finds the evil lurking behind the IDF soldiers and their actions. Such was doctoral candidate Tal Nitzan from Hebrew University. Her research paper won a Hebrew University teachers’ committee prize for excellence. Her subject was to show that in the IDF that “the lack of organized military rape is an alternate way of realizing political goals.” Her paper explains, “In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it can be seen that the lack of military rape merely strengthens the ethnic boundaries and clarifies the inter-ethnic differences – just as organized military rape would have done.” Furthermore, she claims that because the Israeli IDF soldier sees the Palestinian women as less than human, they find them unsuitable as an object for rape. At no point does this excuse for academic research even briefly entertain the idea that the average IDF soldier might come from a community where rape is considered an unacceptable act. Nowhere is the recognized high moral conscience displayed throughout the IDF ever enter the mind of this researcher. One can only ask what kind of interaction she has had with the average Israeli and if she has had contact with Israelis, what could they have been and what might have led her to reach this completely insubstantially supportable conclusion.

 

There is a reason, a theory which might explain her reactions. Much of the IDF combat personnel are religious soldiers. Further, the Israeli public has been coming steadily more religious. The fastest growing sectors of the public are the Chassidim, the Traditional and the Religious Zionist. The Secular community still holds the majority of the highest positions in the IDF as well as in academia, judicial positions and many other power positions. They are feeling the pressure of the increasing numbers of religious soldiers who are taking the leadership and officers training courses and doing very well. The Military highest levels are attempting to protect the secular nature of the highest positions against what they see as an onslaught by religious hordes. The animosity between the secular with the religious can only be unhealthy and the religious are feeling unwanted and also are resentful of some of the conditions being foisted upon them in efforts to push them to choose their religion or the service by having mixed company functions, mixing women soldiers in combat companies formerly containing religious soldiers and the push-back in other fields is just as hard. The resistance is futile as within a decade, two at the most, the secular majority in the upper ranks will fold and the IDF will become a far more comfortable place for religious soldiers and this will make the IDF all the better for it.

 

But the anger between the secular against the religious community is often palpable. This is mostly in the singular direction as for the most part the religious are unable to understand why their needs are so difficult for their superiors to be accustom with and to accommodate. There is no religious disdain for the secular sector and most of the religious simply wish their secular brothers and sisters could understand and feel the joy they receive from their religious life. They see many of the problems and troubles apparent in the secular lifestyle and believe that a more religious life would benefit many secular Jews, but they largely keep such thoughts to themselves and not pressure the secular Jews to become religious. It is also their religious life which forbids their taking any immoral actions which obviously includes not raping the Palestinian women, nothing else. This was simply inconceivable for doctoral student Tal Nitzan which was made more than evident in her paper. From the reviews we can remember, Tal Nitzan was excessively dismissive of IDF and its increasingly religious flavor. This was a sad but definitive case of predetermination clouding reason forcing a slanting of a research paper. What is the saddest part is that Hebrew University faculty thought such a work was noteworthy and gave it a teachers’ committee prize for excellence.

 

And now let’s see something remarkable from an Arab woman’s own testimony which will allow us to conclude and make sense.

 

 

We can now tie everything together and have these disparate stories make sense. The slanted view of the IDF as evil and thus visualizing the lack of rapes by IDF soldiers as damning evidence of their dehumanizing their enemy and their women and not the exact opposite, the respect by IDF soldiers of all human beings as precious and worthy of respect, is simply an application of every suspicious belief by secularists that the religious are just as driven and consumed by sexual desires as are they. This was evidenced by the witness testimony of what initially appears to be a hysterical Arab woman but who is simply expressing something she witnessed which altered her life’s view of the world and the Jewish IDF soldiers. She probably had believed the stories and anti-Semitic incitement coming at her twenty-four hours a day seven days a week and when that IDF soldier entered their house, she probably expected him to start shooting everybody starting with the baby. When instead he shared food and water and then took the woman and baby along with the others to a safer location, this was a life altering event which she could not tell calmly as it was beyond believable; yet she witnessed it as it happened. The average Arab never has such a moment and continues with their belief that the Jews stole their homes and that there is no attachment of the Jews to the land of Israel. There is little hope that the incitement can be overcome as it would require each and every Arab to witness the kindness from a Jew and realize that what they were seeing was normative for the Jews and not a trick, which is what they would be told. Any kindness from the Jews is explained as a trick in an attempt to steal or gain undue advantage and Jewish kindness is to be suspect, not believed no matter how many examples one might witness. The Arabs are told that the Jews, the Israelis, are shooting their youth in the street for no reason and not because they are defending their own lives against attacks. They believe the Pallywood scenes which show the Jews murdering an innocent girl who was out picking flowers and then planting a knife and that this is the way of every case where a stabbing was the reason. Never is an Arab shot in the process of a terror attack; yet the same Arab will also be lauded as a martyr who died in an attack on Jewish Infidels. That is correct, he died attacking Jews but was murdered as an innocent and the knife placed beside him and both stories are celebrated equally and as valid. There are those Arabs who have learned the truth and now witness for Israel such as Walid Shoebat. Eventually the truth will out and the faster Israel becomes a nation of religious Jews, the sooner the truth will come through if for no other reason than that will end the tension and struggle pitting Jew against Jew, at least in Israel. As for the leftist Jews in the United States, well, they will not be Jews in another generation because already their children are mostly not considering themselves Jewish, or they are becoming religious and with a better than average chance of Zionist and will be in Israel and not the United States in the next quarter century. Things are soon to improve; and if the Western and developed world would cut off the flow of money to the Palestinian Authority, things would improve almost immediately. Once Abbas cannot pay off those protecting him, his days are over and then things will either improve or deteriorate catastrophically. Either way, the problem would then be solved definitively. Maybe then ISIS might be the next progenitor, though with the Palestinian Authority gone, ISIS too might very well evaporate into nothing more than the mist of horrific memory.

London Terror and the Message it Sends

 

Imagine the horror felt by the people stuck in the gondolas of the London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, the supersized Ferris wheel along the Thames River near Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Palace of Westminster, Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament as well as overlooking the entirety of the terror attack (see map below). Basically held captive while a 4X4 Enterprise rental vehicle plowed through pedestrians below on the Westminster Bridge as well as the shooting attacks which followed after the attack vehicle had slammed into the iron fence protecting the House of Commons, their ordeal had just started. After the area had been secured, authorities slowly disembarked those civilians from the gondolas one by one taking statements and debriefing each person before moving on to the next gondola. We were unable to ascertain how much time this procedure required before the final groups of people were free to leave. These poor people had paid to take a leisurely ride on the famed London Eye and instead of a fun frolic they were live, front row witnesses to a mass terror attack followed by a torturously slow and measured taking of their statements which for some the ride lasted it must have been hours of tedium. Hopefully some at least made new friends as they certainly had time for conversing while waiting to have their one on one with the police. As of this writing it has been reported that eight people arrested at six addresses, including in Birmingham and London, the death count revised to four, with at least 40 injured, seven critically, and it was released that the murdered police officer was named as PC Keith Palmer.

London Mayor Sadiq Aman Khan is a Muslim which simply shows that the terrorists are not as concerned with whether a nation or city has accepted members of the Islamic faith as equals or even elected them as the mayor of the city; their aim is high visibility attacks which immortalize those who plan and commit these atrocities. They cannot be appeased or accommodated, only hunted down and removed from being capable of inflicting harm on people, any people. It has been noted that the Islamic State in its various forms since its inception has murdered more Muslims than any other religion. One could make an argument that their first and foremost desire is to purify Islam allowing only those who accept their leadership and views on the teachings of their faith. This leads to a problem as there are other groups with similar goals but diametrically different views. It could easily be stated as truth that Hezballah has opposing views to the Islamic State as Islamic State is Sunni while Hezballah is Shiite, two incompatible views if one is being excessively strict as these two terror groups have proven. Hezballah has also murdered more members of the faith of Islam than other religions despite some intense efforts against Israel. One would not be far off than to expect that should Islamic State take control over an area where Hezballah has already purified the city to Shia Islam that when Islamic State left there would be no one left alive as they would purify the city in the name of Sunni Islam. An identical result could be expected should the order of occupation and pacification be reversed. Islamic State has also been at war with numerous other groups which also claim to believe in Sunni Islam which begs the question of where these groups are found deficient in their faith by the Islamic State and why these other Sunni groups fight against the Islamic State. Sometimes trying to wrap our heads around these realities makes our heads hurt badly.

 

Sometimes the problem appears to be not so much the form of Islam but the historic tribe or groups one’s origins are derived. This is made excessively evident when it comes to the Kurds. They are apparently hated by Sunni and Shiites alike and seem to have no friends with which to ally. Their manner of observing Islam is apparently different than most of the others as they took great risks in rescuing the Yazidi as best as they were able when the Islamic State stood poised to slaughter the entirety of these people. While the rest of the world stood paralyzed unable to formulate any plan for saving these people, the Kurds simply went to where the Yazidi were holed up on Mount Sinjar and rescued as many as they were able and provided them with protection. The Yazidi practice a religion which is based purely on their Oral traditions which include a blending, a syncretic religion, influenced by pre-Islamic Assyrian traditions, Sufi and Shiite Islam, Nestorian Christianity, and Zoroastrianism. This blending of religions has left the Yazidi basically with no allies as almost all look upon them as those things which make them different and not the fact that they have anything in common with their neighbors, which is why they remained together as a tight tribal groups heavily dependent on each other for protection. Against the Islamic State the Yazidi had neither the manpower nor the weapons to defend themselves. Their one link is that they are a Kurdish speaking minority which is probably the familial identity they shared with their rescuers.

 

This brings us back to the London terror attack which Islamic State, or ISIS, claimed responsibility and took great pride in their destruction. The attacker who they claim was one of their “soldiers” and he was, according to Prime Minister May, “What I can confirm is that the man was British-born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic. He was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or of the plot.” Another victim of this horror was Spanish teacher and department head Aysha Frade, 43, worked at DLD College, London and was married with two daughters. She was believed to have been crossing Westminster Bridge to pick up her children aged eight and 11 from school when she lost her life in the attack. One of the more moving of the stories of the tragic events was that of Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood who was among those who rushed to help PC Keith Palmer. Mr. Ellwood, who lost his brother in the Bali bombing, was seen pumping the officer’s chest then standing above him, his hands and face smeared with blood as was reported live from the scene by numerous reports. His bravery and efforts as well as those of all involved, police, emergency medical teams, ambulance crews and those other civilians who lent a hand in assisting the many wounded and giving comfort to those around them most in need from the shocking scenes all witnessed and the order which was kept and especially to those people who waited patiently, or not so patiently, in the gondolas and then gave full accountings to the authorities after, what for some must have been insufferable, long waits to finally disembark and end their ordeal. The fact that most remained and assisted as best they were able is a testament to British comradery and pulling together and showing their best in a difficult and horrific situation.

We can hope that this will be the final time we need to review the heroism, bravery and other stand-out performances by regular people, law enforcement and emergency crews, people from all walks and from diffuse backgrounds all assisting people they likely never met before but giving them somebody to lean on for support, working to save a life, preventing further harm, stopping an attacker or other general acts of bravery or relief in the immediate and tumultuous aftermath of a terror attack like those we have seen far too many times. Paris, London, New York, Jerusalem, Istanbul and Cairo are all amongst cities struck by these horrors while there is apparently nowhere on Earth perhaps other than Antarctica is safe from such violence. The world sometimes appears to be awakening to the threats yet all too often after attacks such as what we saw in London we all jerk ourselves and scream in our minds that this must be fought with more than words and within a few days, hours for some and moments for others, we fall back into our nominal state of dealing with those daily tasks and requirements of our jobs, families, friends and getting the car repaired, paying bills, food shopping, kids science project, you name the distraction, it takes our minds back to the everyday. That complacency needs to be shaken up and dispelled such that we take the needful steps to end these attacks by whatever means are required. We owe it to those whose lives we have already lost, their families and friends, their coworkers and people they simply may have once given a smile making their day and we owe it to those who have not yet been the tragic target and their friends, families, coworkers, people they attend religious services with or those who will not get that needed smile because we did not take the steps immediately such that they never face the horror of being caught in such a nightmare. These are the prices we have paid and we need to prevent those costs from rising any further than unavoidable and that will take remembering those we lost and taking the needful steps to demand that those who are in our governments and have the responsibility to prevent these events do so. That is what we need demand and stop with the petty day-to-day bickering between parties and unite and do what is right finally and for a change, please.

After Jerusalem Comes Rome

 

There was a time around the late 1300’s when there was this concept that Constantinople was the third holiest city in Islam and as such had to be conquered and the Christian stain blotted out. Finally, in 1453 Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II after a fifty plus day siege and the implementation of a number of huge siege cannons which finally broke through one of the weaker points of the great city’s walls, walls that had withstood every pounding which had come before and barely showed a scratch. Constantinople had repulsed repeated Muslim assaults from the 7th century onward. Its triangular site made it all but impregnable. Two sides were surrounded by sea, and the third landward side was commanded by the great Walls of Theodosius, a massive defensive barrier four miles long and many yards wide and tall even at its weakest points. This was the greatest bastion in the medieval world. In a thousand years the city had been besieged some twenty plus times, yet none had been able to crack open those land-filled walls. The largest of the huge siege cannons used by Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II fired projectiles of stone weighing as much as 1,500 pounds, three-quarters of a ton, and measured two and a half to three feet in diameter depending on the particular cannon. These stone spheres were mined and shaped on the north coast of the Black Sea and transported to the cannons by barges. The largest of the cannons was no less impressive with a length of twenty-seven feet and a barrel wall a full eight inches of solid bronze to absorb the force of the blast. The blasting through the walls of Constantinople signified the end of the wall as a means of preventing a determined attacker. After Constantinople fell and was renamed Istanbul and the Hagia Sophia transformed into a mosque, the third holiest city in Islam had been conquered and settled down to a less noble designation, it was merely the capital of the Ottoman Empire now.

One need understand that when Constantinople was the third holiest city in Islam, Jerusalem was already occupied by Muslims thus was just a sideshow in an inhospitable land. The Temple Mount had been used often as a place to dump trash and things unwanted. Now with Constantinople comfortably called Istanbul and Jerusalem not under Islamic rule, Jerusalem has become the third holiest city in Islam. With time one of two end results over Jerusalem will be the result. Either the world will have used their combined militaries against Israel in order to establish the Arab faux-nation of Palestine on the grave of the Jewish State or, the preferred solution, the world tires of the incessant deadlock and washes their collective hands of the entire mess and Israel reestablishes herself to the promised borders as denoted in San Remo and countless places since; and Jerusalem returns to its rightful place as the capital city it has only ever been, the capital of the Jewish state of Israel. This eventuality may not be as distant as many believe as there may become a situation where it serves Islam to choose a new third holiest site in Islam as another of their list of prized locations, future third holiest cities or locations in Islam. Paris and London are potential cities for the next to be conquered, also known as third holiest place in Islam. But there is one place, not really a city and a strange place for a country, but this place would replace Jerusalem in a heartbeat if it became a potential place to fall before Islam. The city is Rome, the small nation is the Vatican, and the two would quickly become the third holiest place in Islam if the refugees who are streaming across the Mediterranean Sea from Libya, Tunisia or Algeria continue. Imagine if these refugees making their way to Europe decided that settling in Rome might be a city they could become a significant minority with a high enough percentage of the population that they feel they reached the tipping point and the time was ripe to push the Christians from Rome and start transforming the cathedrals and churches into Mosques and eventually pressing their newly gathered strength and realize their dream of turning St. Peter’s Basilica into the Grand Great Vatican Mosque of Mohammad. It might be Paris or London or Cologne or Winchester and the new mosques would be in Paris La Mosque de Notre Dame; in London it would be Westminster Mosque; in Cologne there might be Hohe Domkirche Mosque, or Mosque of Winchester. Should the future fulfill the future as interpreted by the majority of vocal Imams; then any church, cathedral, temple, synagogue or other religious building could become a mosque with the addition of a single minaret from which the call to prayer can be sounded. Some cathedrals and churches already have a tall tower often a belfry which after removing the bells and installing a high output speaker system capable of blaring out the call to prayer over a distance of a mile or more to be assured that every Muslim would know when the time to pray is upon them. Five times each and every day like clockwork that you could set your watch to and possibly use as your morning alarm clock the call will be made loud and clear, well, at least loud.

The denotation of third holiest site in Islam is adaptable as history has shown. There is no reason why it cannot change as the situation changes and another great city of importance to either the other main religions or other national capital cities, anyplace where Islam desires to make a gain and spend religious capital declaring some location as a great holy place for Islam thus causing more Muslims to relocate to the target city and thus reinforcing their claims eventually leading to their realization becoming established fact. The reason that this is not succeeding with Jerusalem is that living in Gaza or Areas A or B in Judea and Samaria is so unattractive to likely any Muslim almost anywhere outside of those stuck for three or four generations in an Arab refugee camp, a situation perpetuated by their Arab and Muslim brothers and sisters in order to use them as a threat and bludgeon to destroy Israel and a means of generating massive amounts of funding which is siphoned off to buy weapons and explosives for terrorist uses. So, as things stand, their assault to claim Jerusalem is frozen in place which is why should things change, which is happening as the situations throughout Europe are quite fluid with the flood of refugees which the Europeans may have figured out were a threat and attempted inundation and conquest almost too late to put a stopper in the bottle. Still, there are hundreds if not thousands still making their way to Europe by any and every route and means possible from train, car and bus to row boat and rubber dingy to airplane, speed boat or possibly glider if the means were to present itself. Germany and Sweden appeared to be the hardest hit, but France and Italy could not be far behind as they would be the first place the small boats from North Africa would reach and to make things even more troublesome the Italian navy has been plucking Muslims out of the water after their boats sank. Below is one of the least disturbing of the videos as this rescue was simply taking people from a boat which was not going anywhere too fast and the people required a helping hand and the Italian Navy was there to assist. The video also points to one of the bigger problems, the people dealing in getting these people into the Mediterranean often charging hundreds of Euros per person and overcrowding the boat leaving their victims drifting without but a hope and a prayer. The only saving grace they received was from the Italians and they were stuck out in the Mediterranean by their Islamic Brothers.

 

 

The collapse of the Islamic world and their exodus into Europe is in what is a fitting case of being hoist on their own petard, or collecting on their own inflicted hardships foisted on the survivors of the Ottoman Empire with the forming countries which were designed to fail, or at least with no consideration if tribal borders with their mandates and Sykes-Picot. Now those states have collapsed with a little assist, or lack of prevention, by the United States as President Obama set out to prove that the United States had not been a force for good and stability but a force for oppression and degradation. President Obama ended up proving the necessity of a strong United States to hold things in balance and stable while also allowing for the perfidy of the European powers after World War I which perpetuated the problems in Europe leading to World War II and now the collapse of the Islamic Arab world with refugees fleeing into Europe which is economically ill prepared to absorb the flood of refugees, especially as a percentage hidden within are instigators and terror specialists. The experiment performed to prove the United States as an unnecessary evil which needed to be reined in for the world to experience freedom and unparalleled progress and liberation failed and failed so miserably that even President Obama realized he needed to actually redeploy United States Military Forces to the Middle East, though it proved too little too late. The question is has the American public learned anything from the last eight years where the United States wallowed in an economic blasé while the world burned? The election coming up would be a measure of to what extent they might have learned. If their realized the mistake their foreign policy caused, then the election will go against Hillary Clinton who was behind or at least a party to Libya, Benghazi, the Iraq pullout, the Russia reset failure, the Syrian red line fiasco, and the retreat of the United States from the world scene. Prediction? We fear that the American public has largely not even realized their leadership’s responsibility in the mayhem worldwide and will support Hillary Clinton with over 45% and potentially place her into the White House and if so for the full eight years possible. For those who want the worst possible news, if for some reason like being indicted before the Democrat Convention and convicted before the election and forcing the Democrat Party to replace her with their only other rational choice, Bernie Sanders, he would win in a landslide against Donald Trump, or at least that is how we see it. Of course we would not be overly surprised if Hillary would win the election from within a prison cell as without her reminding the public how shrill she usually is the better her chances of winning. Should Hillary win, we will need to answer the question of where will the world be four years hence and will there be any turning back at that point.
