The latest massacre at the hands of Islamist Radicals happened in France. 12 People were killed. 8 were journalists at a publication that did a LOT of satire, and refused to limit themselves to ‘everyone but Mohammed’. Completely in keeping with the standards, laws, and values of The West. 2 were police assigned to protect the Editor at that publication. (Clearly they needed more…) One was a maintenance person and one was a visitor.
Another 11 were wounded. All by 3 attackers.
Eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor were killed, said prosecutor Francois Molins. He said 11 people were wounded four of them seriously.
I’ve read the Koran. It tells Muslims to do this kind of thing. Many more times than I care to think about. (It also says it is just fine to lie about it to the infidel…) Frequently saying to kill off those who refuse to submit. In many parts, it is a policy manual for conversion or death. In many cases I’ve worked with Muslims and even in a Muslim dominated company. Individually they are nice folks and easy to work with (for me at least). Then again, the Koran tells “sojourners” in non-Muslim countries to blend in, go along to get along, conform and keep a low profile, until Islam takes over… (Yes, it does say that. I’m just accurately reporting what it says, non-judgmentally.)
So my question is a simple one:
How long will it take for The Powers That Be to decide that Islam is not compatible with Western Democratic values and freedom of speech? There has been ample evidence. Their own book is clear. The hadith and other findings of “clerics” along with their “sermons” are also quite clear. They will not change (since it is their sacred and immutable Koran that sets these rules and behavior) so if they are waiting for Islam to have a “Reformation” they are out of luck.
How long will it take for The Powers That Be to realize that this is asymmetric and needs to be made very symmetric to stop it? Become more like: we kill them as long as they kill Christians. We insult their “prophet” as long as they insult Christ and Christians. They kill journalists for satire, we kill them and publish double the satire.
As long as it is asymmetric ( 8 dead and 11 wounded for at most 3 potentially to be caught ) the attacks will escalate. They see it as a ‘win’. As long as they can kill and expel Christians while killing journalists for saying Islam does not look much like the ‘religion of peace’, attacks will continue (and escalate).
The “end game” of that is exactly what the Islamic Radicals want: A world of all Islam all the time. (Their book tells them to fight for that outcome).
So your choices are very simple, convert or die… or change the ‘politically correct’ and suicidal behaviour to something that is in touch with reality.
What I don’t understand is why TPTB are continuing to push the PC ‘multicultural’ stuff that clearly isn’t working. Is it a desire to destroy any ‘nationalism’ anywhere in the world? Is it a desire to create chaos in nations so that the “world government” becomes a necessity? Is it just naive stupidity? Frankly, I just dont’ get it… But I do get that it just killed another 8 and wounded another 11…
I, too, am Charlie…
