It is obvious that the only way to defeat an enemy is to first be fully aware of who the enemy is, and what his intentions are. If we don’t think there even is an enemy, or if we misunderstand or misrepresent his plans and activities, then we are certain to lose in any conflict with him.
This was certainly true back during the days of the Cold War when many in the West had no clue as to the nature of atheistic communism, and the threat that it posed. Far too many gullible and duped Westerners had no idea that there was an evil empire out there, a bloody political ideology, which was bent on destroying the West.
Their leaders clearly stated their intentions (remember Khrushchev for example? “We will bury you”) yet still many refused to believe there was a massive threat to their very existence. It was only because a few leaders were fully aware of the enemy that it was eventually defeated.
If it were not for strong, resolute, and perceptive leaders like Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II, the West may have lost, and godless communism may have prevailed. But these three clearly understood the nature of the enemy, and were thus able to stand strong against it, eventually triumphing over it.
What is desperately needed now are leaders who have the same clarity and resolve regarding another enemy. We have another bloody political ideology which has stated quite forthrightly that they wish to destroy the West, yet most of our leaders fail to believe them when they say this. I refer to Islam of course, and its goal of seeing the whole world come under a global caliphate with everyone in total submission to Allah and sharia law.
But very few Western leaders have a clue that there is an enemy out there, and that they have vowed to destroy us. Yesterday’s London terror attack provides a perfect example of all this. Already most Western leaders – especially those closest to the event – are showing that they are true dhimmies, ever ready to appease Islam instead of recognise it for the threat that it is.
Indeed, with what appears to be utterly deceived and duped dhimmies in charge of the UK, no wonder all this jihadist mayhem is likely to just keep getting worse there. Consider what just two of their enlightened and progressive leaders have said about the attack:
-“It’s completely wrong to blame this killing on the religion of Islam.” (London Mayor Boris Johnson)
-“It’s a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.” (Prime Minister David Cameron)
Wow, spoken like true dhimmies. Whatever you do, don’t blame Islam for any of this. Never mind that the two attackers were merrily shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they enjoyed performing their disembowelling and decapitation rituals on the hapless English soldier.
Never mind that they told the video cameras in no uncertain terms that what they were doing was all for, and in the name of, Allah. Perhaps when they ranted “We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you” they did not really mean that Allah – or something.
I am not the only one who is incensed by how our leaders and mainstream media have whitewashed this whole affair. Someone who has been warning about all this for years is also rightly ticked off. I refer to Melanie Phillips, whose 2006 book Londonistan should have been a clear wakeup call for all Brits. I reviewed it here: https://billmuehlenberg.com/2006/08/31/a-review-of-londonistan-how-britain-is-creating-a-terror-state-within-by-melanie-philips/
In her column today she rightly lays into these lame, dim-witted dhimmi appeasers. She writes: “There’s been some stiff competition over the past 24 hours for the coveted award of Most Fatuous Reaction to a Jihadi Atrocity. I hooted at the commentator visiting from planet Zog, who had thus totally missed all the barbaric snuff movie beheadings and eviscerations and human bomb attacks carried out by jihadists over the past two decades across the world and who wailed, poor dear, that ‘none of it made any sense’.
“I enjoyed the pointed satire of the commentator who intoned that we were all guilty of causing the two jihadis to hack poor Drummer Rigby to death and tried to behead him, while claiming they were fulfilling the edicts of the Koran and waiting for the police to arrive in order to try to murder them too – but then I realised that it wasn’t satire at all.
“I marvelled at the languidly superior commentator who drawled that the problem in Woolwich had been caused by ‘testosterone’ and that the real threat to all of us was actually from the collapsing EDL and the all-but collapsed BNP. And at the even more languidly superior commentator, who flicked barbs at Britain’s ‘hyperbole’ and ‘hysteria’ and implied that in Woolwich Britain kind of had it coming to it since it had been perceived as indifferent to ‘the appalling impact of a drone attack on a Pashtun village’. Nice.”
She then discusses Boris and David: “So to the Prime Minister and the Mayor, there was nothing to connect the Woolwich atrocity to Islam at all. But on his little video rant, one of the killers drew explicitly on the Koran as the inspiration for his attack: ‘Surat at-Tawba through…many, many ayat throughout the Qur’an that…we must fight them as they fight us…’ which refers to a number of exhortations to ‘fight the unbelievers and ‘kill the polythesists wherever you find them’ and other such stuff in similar vein.
“Nothing to do with Islam? It’s as absurd as saying the Inquisition had nothing to do with the Catholic Church, or the Holocaust had nothing to do with Nazism but these things were just the product of a few warped and deluded individuals….
“What’s bizarre is that jihadis are treated as genuine Muslim spokesmen – see the way broadcasters were giving one of them air-time yesterday – but when it comes to analysing an Islamic terror attack, that very same political and media establishment falls over itself to agree with those extremists that its perpetrators are not real Muslims at all.”
In an earlier piece she spoke of “Denial is a river in Londonistan”. It was an important piece, and still well worth reading – see the link below. She concludes that incisive article with these words:
“In short, Britain is being steadily Islamiscised – and the establishment appears paralysed like a rabbit caught in the headlights. Four years ago in my book, I delivered a warning. A country that can’t even bring itself to name the nature of the enemy it faces will be defeated by that enemy. The Stockholm bomber is but the latest export from Londonistan – and unless the Government gets up off its knees and changes its disastrous strategy, I very much fear he will not be the last.”
The UK has clearly not learned any lessons along the way, and has clearly refused to listen to sober warnings such as those offered by Phillips. Thus there can only be one direction for the UK, and that is straight down into the pits. We no longer have Great Britain but the Once Great Britain – all thanks to the appeasers, the deniers, and the dhimmies who rule that land.
Oh, and while all this has been happening, Muslim rioters in Sweden are moving into the fifth day of setting the cities there alight – all because this is the religion of peace of course.
