The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have visited those injured in the London Bridge terrorists incident, and met the medical staff and emergency services who responded during the attack.
” It is essential that we understand this: We are not only fighting terrorists. We are fighting Islamic terrorists. There is a huge difference and since some like to state that the IRA was just as bad, let me use that as an example: The IRA wanted all of Ireland to be under Irish rule. Isis wants most or all of Europe to be under Islamic rule. Anyone who can’t see the difference, is either lying or too dumb to have read this far. The point is: If you can not identify your enemy, you can not effectively fight a war.”
Commonsense recommendations on how to fight Islamic terrorism, from Norse author and blogger Bjørn Andreas Bull-Hansen. Bjørn writes from Norway, and this article is directed primarily toward England – in light of the most recent vehicle- and stabbing attack by jihadist militants – but it applies across Europe and in the U.S., too. Part 3 of 3.
” Islam is not about multiculturalism. In fact, there is probably nothing more monocultural than islam. Islam has a centuries old history of destroying cultures and we should never forget that. Islam is not tolerant and it is not understanding. It subjugates people. I can personally see lots of benefits to a positive kind of multiculturalism, but I see nothing multicultural about islam.”

“The fact is that if we dare to face the reality we live in, we can actually start fighting back and we can start right now. But facing that reality means there are a few things we need to understand and there are things that must be done that might not be approved by everyone. But this is not the time for endless discussions, virtue signalling and political correctness. We must now start realizing what’s going on and we must act. However, just saying that we must act is not enough. We must know what do to. And honestly, this is not rocket science. Anyone with a grasp of the reality we live in understands what needs to be done.”

“The public are wondering whether this whole idea of mass migration, of this borderless world is such a good idea and I think the public has come to a different conclusion than the politicians.”

We must deal with the facts of Islamic supremacism. But we can only defeat them if we resolve to see them for what they are.

Written in February of 2016, this exemplary essay is just as cogent and important now – if anything, given the recent events in Manchester, England, even more so… since it seems we have learned little in the last year-plus! Here is an excerpt:
When [Omar Abdel Rahman, infamously known as the Blind Sheikh, mastermind of the first attack on the World Trade Center] said the scriptures command that Muslims strike terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies, the scriptures backed him up.
When he said Islam directed Muslims not to take Jews and Christians as their friends, the scriptures backed him up.
When he said Allah enjoined all Muslims to wage jihad until Islamic law was established throughout the world, the scriptures backed him up.
You could counter that there are other ways of construing the scriptures. You could contend that these exhortations to violence and hatred should be “contextualized”—i.e., that they were only meant for their time and place in the seventh century. Again, I would caution that there are compelling arguments against this manner of interpreting Islamic scripture. The point, however, is that what you’d be arguing is an interpretation.
The fact that there are multiple ways of construing Islam hardly makes the Blind Sheikh’s literal construction wrong. The blunt fact of the matter is that, in this contest of competing interpretations, it is the jihadists who seem to be making sense because they have the words of scripture on their side—it is the others who seem to be dancing on the head of a pin…
Our investigators are good at what they do, and our top officials may be ideological, but they are not stupid. Why is it that they can’t say two plus two equals four when Islam is involved?
The reason is simple: stubbornly unwilling to deal with the reality of Islam, our leaders have constructed an Islam of their very own. This triumph of willful blindness and political correctness over common sense was best illustrated by former British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith when she described terrorism as “anti-Islamic activity.”
In other words, the savagery is not merely unrelated to Islam; it becomes, by dint of its being inconsistent with a “religion of peace,” contrary to Islam. This explains our government’s handwringing over “radicalization”: we are supposed to wonder why young Muslims spontaneously become violent radicals—as if there is no belief system involved.
This is political correctness on steroids, and it has dangerous policy implications.
Read the whole article. It’s sobering, but instructive – even enlightening. It should be required reading for every government official, and for every high school and college student. Heck, it should be required reading for everyone in the West!
Her Majesty The Queen visits with one of the young victims of the Manchester suicide bombing at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, and commends the Hospital staff.
The whole nation has been shocked by the death and injury in Manchester last night of so many people, adults and children, who had just been enjoying a concert. I know I speak for everyone in expressing my deepest sympathy to all who have been affected by this dreadful event and especially to the families and friends of those who have died or were injured. I want to thank all the members of the emergency services, who have responded with such professionalism and care.
