shrinking-map-of-palestine

Israel and the Palestinians have been at loggerheads for the past seventy years, and there seems no end to it. At the moment Israeli forces are shooting protesters at the border and wounding many, but when is this going to end? So far 62 Palestinians have been killed and over 2000 wounded by snipers of the Israeli forces.

By the look of things there will never be a peace accord between the Palestinians and the Israelis. The Jews have taken over so much of Palestinian land and they are forced to live in a small country that is half the size of what they owned. When the Israeli’s forced their way into Palestinian territory in 1949 and took over a large part of the country this was met with horror and dismay by the Palestinians.

They have never forgotten that the country belongs to them, and they have been fighting to get it back. Gaza is the main stumbling block to a peace accord, for Hamas is constantly targeting the Israeli’s with bombs and attacks. They have built many tunnels into Israeli territory, and although the Israeli’es have shut down most of them they are still at it. Hamas is the one great block to a peace accord for they keep attacking the Israeli’s.

They have encouraged the Palestinians to attack the border with Israel, and that is why we see so many deaths and wounding at the border. I do believe that the Israeli Army should not be shooting Palestinians at the border, but just ensure they do not cross the border. This is not going anywhere to making peace with the Palestinians if this continues.

I believe both sides should sit around the table and work something out to satisfy both sides. What is wrong with Palestinians living together with the Jews in one country? Jews have built towns on Palestinian land and they are not willing to give it up. This is wrong! Jews and Palestinians should come together and live in the same country side by side. It does no good for the two sides to be in constant conflict.

The big trouble is Hamas who want war with the Israeli’s, and that should be stopped. There have been constant conflicts between Hamas and the Israeli forces and unless Hamas is removed it will never end.  The leaders of Hamas have become millionaires, while the poor people do not have homes and are starving. This has to end! They should be removed from power and their wealth confiscated to build homes. But this is never likely to happen. They continue the war against the Israeli’s and it will never end so long as they are in power.

It is without doubt that a peace accord must be reached between the Palestinians and the Jews. But that is a long way away for the two sides are in bitter conflict. I think the United Nations should step in and broker a peace between them, for otherwise this will go on forever. I can’t see a peace accord in my lifetime but hopefully it will come someday.

Israel – The Slow But Sure Land Grab.

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, European Union, Israel, Justice, Netanyahu, News, Palestine, United Nations with tags , , , , on 03/02/2017 by floroy1942

What would you say if your neighboring country slowly, bit by bit, started taking over your land and built settlements in your country? Naturally you would be outraged and start doing something about it. So why is the world not doing something about the gradual takeover of Palestinian land by Israel?

Ever since 1947 Israel has expanded its territory into Palestine by building settlements and towns on land that does not belong to them. The Palestinians have complained to the United Nations, and every major country in the world, but all complaints have fallen on deaf ears. If this keeps up, within a few years Palestine will no longer exist because it will have been taken over in its entirety by the Israelis.

In excess of 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel annexed the West Bank and East Jerusalem after the 1967 war, all on Palestinian land. On Wednesday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was moving ahead with plans to set up a new settlement on the West Bank ‘for the first time in more than two decades’.

The announcement came as Israeli police cleared protesters from the unauthorised settler outpost of Amona. Israel’s Supreme Court has ordered Amona to be dismantled because it was built on private Palestinian land. So why have they not done this before?

The United Nations has for years condemned the land grab by Israel, but they have taken no action to put a stop to it except to vocally condemn the actions of the Israeli government.

How would the American’s feel if Canada or Mexico began building settlements over the border and claiming it for themselves? You can bet your life there would be an uproar of protestation, and it might even get to the stage of military action.

No such thing is taking place in Israel and Palestine, for the Palestinian cries of protest have all fallen on deaf ears for years, thanks to the backing of the United States who are solidly behind Israel. Now with Trump in charge we may see a change in attitude by the United States.

 

The Shrinking Map Of Palestine

The Shrinking Map Of Palestine

When Israel went to war with the surrounding Arab states in 1967 and 1973 they won convincingly and claimed the Sinai desert as their own. Even when Palestinian fighters fought against Israel to try and save their land they were called terrorists and quickly defeated. Since that time the Israeli borders have pushed back steadily until today, Palestine has all but disappeared.

You can be pretty certain that the small areas still under Palestinian control will disappear in the next few years, and Palestine will be wiped from the map completely to become the State of Israel.

Don’t for one minute think that I am a Palestinian sympathiser for I am not, but this injustice has to have a voice somewhere.

Arrested For Being Raped In Dubai

United Arab Emirates

United Arab Emirates

Yet again we hear of a woman being arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after reporting to the police that she had been raped by two Muslims. What is the matter with these people? It is well know that the Qu’ran allows the rape of non-Muslim woman by anyone, which is disgraceful.

In the last few years there have been various cases of women reporting to the police that they have been raped, and nothing happens to the rapists, but the victim is sent to jail for sex outside marriage or adultery.

Rape - Commom In Arab CountriesFrom information available it would seem she had a drink with two Muslims from Birmingham (UK) and then went with them back to their hotel. It was there that she suffered a ‘brutal and violent’ rape by the two men who filmed the entire episode. Once she was released she went straight to the police to report it but was immediately arrested and had her passport confiscated. She was later released on bail.

I have to say that she was somewhat silly to go back with these men to their hotel, but I guess we all do stupid things now and again. I know that in the same situation I would never have done it. Now we have to wait for the court case to find out what will happen to her. She could conceivably be jailed or released and told to leave the country.

It just goes to prove that the majority of Muslim countries still live in the dark ages and will never change. In Arab countries men can do as they please without fear of retribution, but a slight step over the line and a woman can face dire penalties. It is without doubt time these people started living in the modern era for their laws have not changed in over a thousand years and do not fit in today’s society.

Germany Is Waking Up To The Muslim Menace

You Can’t Even See If This Is Male Or Female

I read today an interesting article on some proposals being put forward by a German politician, Germany’s interior minister Thomas de Maiziere. It would seem that he wants to ban the burka in Germany, plus stopping German people from being allowed to hold dual nationality, recruiting 15,000 more police officers by 2020, deporting foreign hate preachers, and making it more difficult for extremist organisations to finance mosques.

That all sounds like common sense to me and should be adopted by all E.U. countries. There are countries that have already banned the burka, like France, Belgium and some towns in Italy.

In these trying times it is to me essential to be able to see the face of those around you, for it is not unknown for suicide bombers to dress in a burka before committing their vile act. To see a man dressed in a burka would immediately arouse suspicion and could lead to him being apprehended before being able to detonate his bomb in a crowded place.

Stopping dual citizenship is also a good idea, because all those who travel to places like Iraq or Syria for Islamic State only have to show their Arab passport and they are free to do so.

I have often said that Muslim hate preachers should all be deported, heaven knows we have enough of them in England. This move by Germany should start a wave of such deportations throughout Europe.

It is without doubt time that the governments in Europe start to crack down on those whose only intention for being here is to create hatred. Anyone suspected of being a terrorist should immediately be deported and never allowed back in. Never mind their family ties, if necessary send the family packing too.

It is time for European governments to get tough with these people before all hell breaks loose. If they delay much longer the people of Europe will live to regret it.

Is Europe Dying?

Posted in Arab, Britain, Equality, European Union, Germany, Immigrants, Islamic State, Muslim, News, Politics with tags , , , , on 07/03/2016 by floroy1942
Try Next Door

Try Next Door

From all the recent news bulletins about the influx of refugees you must get the idea that the Europe Union is currently an utter shambles. With the the current crisis no other conclusion is possible.

The politicians do not seem the grasp the severity of what they are doing, or failing to do, and no-one seems capable of making the right decisions. Currently the migrants are being halted in Greece, which is totally incapable of handling the crisis on their own and they seem to be getting no direct help from the rest of Europe apart from the promise of 700m Euros at some time in the future.

When Merkel opened her big mouth last year openly inviting refugees to Germany, she had no idea that her country would suddenly be swamped with refugees to the tune of 1.25m in just a few months of 2015, and believe me, we have seen nothing yet.

In the first six weeks of this year alone 80,000 migrants reached the shores of Europe, mainly through Turkey and the Greek islands. Experts are certain that this year we will see more than 1m crossing into Europe, with some estimates as high as 2m. Any sane person must realize that this is totally unsustainable, for we already have unending problems with those that arrived last year.

Middle East Refugee Reception

Middle East Refugee Reception

It is well recorded that around two thirds are purely economic migrants from countries that are not at war like Syria and Iraq, and it is equally obvious that Germany cannot house and feed them all. This is the reason why Merkel is trying to offload so many onto other European countries, but the end effect is that many of these countries are closing their borders to the migrants, which leaves Greece to ‘carry the can’.

Today (7/3/2016) it seems that the E.U. is holding a meeting to permanently seal the border with Greece to prevent these people moving north into other areas of the E.U. This is unacceptable as they should be doing everything possible to halt the flow from Turkey.

The politicians in Brussels seem totally incapable of handling this crisis as they dither and argue about what should happen. In my view, the only sure way out of the this crisis is to shut the door to all of Europe, at least until the current mess is sorted out. This will mean sending them all back to where they came from as soon as they arrive.

As summer approaches it is obvious that the number of migrants will increase ten-fold as more and more cross the Mediterranean to the shores of Greece and Italy. It is clear that Europe has not been able to handle the 1.25m migrants from last year, so what makes the politicians think they can handle another million this year. Before year’s end the continent will have been literally swamped with these people unless drastic action is taken to halt the flow. This means turning back all those who try to get here until the message gets through that we cannot take any more.

It will be hard to take this stance, but for the sake of the future of Europe, I see no other way. Economy’s have been hit hard by the problems of the last ten years and we are by no means out of the woods yet. With the economies of the various nations in trouble this will only drag us further into the mire until the entire system collapses, but the politicians in Brussels just do not seem to appreciate the fact.

Taking Germany as an example, just how does Merkel and her cohorts think that their nation can house, feed and provide jobs for 1.25m plus another million at least this year. The answer is, it’s impossible! The same goes for other European countries. By the end of this year, with another 1m+ coming to European shores the problems will only intensify.

Germany may need to increase its population due to the slowing of the birthrate among ethnic Germans, but to invite Muslims into your country in such numbers is not the answer. Merkel should have been intelligent enough to use a more controlled immigration system where she would have been able to pick and choose who entered the country.

On top of all this, there is no way that the migrants will properly integrate into European society. We have seen this over the past eighteen years or so in Britain, which should have been a lesson to Merkel.

Muslim Rape

Muslim Rape

Already in  Germany we have seen a marked increase in attacks on women because the Muslims seem to think that it is their right to rape any western women they come across whenever they feel like it, and don’t forget that such actions are allowed by the Qur’an!

Just as in England, the Muslims will begin taking over entire neighbourhoods in towns and cities as their numbers increase. Once established, their demands will become more and more evident as they try to change the country to suit their way of life. There can be little doubt this is the biggest crisis to hit Europe since the Second World War.

The trouble is, I for one do not see a way out of the problem because the politicians in Brussels seem totally unable to get a grip of the crisis. Many countries like Hungary, Chechnya and Macedonia have taken unilateral action and closed their borders and want nothing to do with the migrants.

All E.U. countries should be assisting Greece and Italy by using their Navies to turn back any migrant boats trying to cross the Mediterranean. This must continue until the migrants, and more importantly the people smugglers get the message and the flow stops. These people will need to turn to their own kind in the Middle East countries for the help they need, for most of these countries have done nothing to assist their fellow Muslims.

The governments of Iraq and Syria are doing nothing to help their own people in the war-torn areas and are quite happy to offload these people onto Europe, when they should be doing all they can to help their own.

As for the economic migrants, they should be swiftly weeded out and returned without delay to their homeland. Once the message gets through we should see the numbers of those trying to get into Europe fall drastically.

Unless our stupid politicians start taking some sensible steps to halt the flow of migrants Europe will cease to exist, and God help us all when the Muslims finally take over. Don’t think for one minute that this is impossible.

The ideology of Islam strictly forbids integration into our western way of life because the rules are very strict, and not forgetting that all Muslims are brainwashed from birth to follow the teachings of Allah.

You only have to look at all the press photographs to see that the greater majority of ‘refugees’ are all young men without families. It is certain that many are members of Islamic State, and literally thousands of them have already crossed into Europe hidden among the refugees. Once they get organized we will see many attacks of the kind that hit Paris a short time ago. Given time we could see open warfare on the streets of our towns and cities. God help us all!

Islam Inhumane – How Is That Possible?

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, Children, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 15/01/2016 by floroy1942

I read a rather disturbing account today of a young Pakistani boy who cut off his own hand because he mistakenly thought he had blasphemed.

Brainwashed From Birth

Brainwashed From Birth

During a gathering at the local mosque the preacher told his congregation that all followers should say their prayers. He then asked his flock who had stopped praying, and the boy Mohammad Anwar, 15, raised his hand by mistake after apparently mis-hearing the question.

The crowd immediately accused him of blasphemy so he ran home and cut off his own hand, placed it on a plate and presented it to the cleric as penance for his supposed sin. It is reported that his parents were very proud of what their son had done to show penance, and he was hailed as a hero by the villagers.

Because he made a silly mistake, he must now live the rest of his life with only one hand, and all because of the inhumane blasphemy laws in Islam. Thank God Christianity is not so barbaric.

A Thief Loses A Hand

A Thief Loses A Hand

Even though it was a mistake, he could well be seen as a criminal under Islamic Law by strangers for the rest of his life, for as we all know, the punishment for a thief is to lose a hand. With this one rash act he could well have destroyed his chances of a normal life.

If Europeans lived under Islamic Law, about 97% of the population would be going through life with only one hand that is for sure. Thankfully we do not have Sharia Law here, well, not everywhere that is! But who is to say it is not coming!

After Paris Muslims Now Fear A Backlash

French Police In Action

After the atrocious attacks in Paris a week ago Muslims living in France and many other European countries are now fearing a backlash from the people, and I am not surprised.

Over the past few years many cities in Europe have been forced to endure vicious attacks that have cost the lives of many; family, friends and colleagues, and now it has happened again on a much greater scale.

Following all the previous attacks, the Muslims living in Europe kept very quiet and no-one stepped forward to condemn them, and it is the same this time except for a very tiny minority. It is felt by many Europeans that they secretly approve. In all countries they still attend the mosque daily to listen in many cases to the anti-‘infidel’ ravings of the radical Imams, and never raise a voice in protest.

They wish to live among us and live the good life that is offered by the European people, accept our charity in the form of benefits given freely, but at no time will they step forward and condemn the teachings of Islamic State (I.S.) or the radical preachers in their mosques. Now they are surprised that the indigenous people are turning against them.

Islamophobia is on the rise all across the continent because people do not hear a single word of condemnation from the Muslim population. Everyone is waiting for the next attack that will surely come with so many I.S. followers having entered Europe.

Jihadi Abdelhamid Abaaoud - Planner Of The Attack

Jihadi Abdelhamid Abaaoud – Planner Of The Attack

The war against I.S. has taken a whole new turn, for they have successfully infiltrated Europe disguised as refugees, and several thousand of these terrorists now live among us. It is certain that they are here with but one purpose, to kill as many people as possible in European cities, just as they did in Paris. It is anyone’s guess as to which city will be next.

The various security agencies are all on high alert, but no matter how successful they are they will never be able to stop all attacks. At some time in the near future some group or other will commit another outrage in a most unexpected place and people will die.

From the Paris attacks it is clear these people are out to cause mass casualties among the population, and the next one could take place in a concert hall, a cinema or disco club, the metro or any other place where people congregate in large numbers. As in Paris we can expect a large number of casualties, but where, that is the big question facing our security services.

It is certain the security services are not getting any assistance from the large Muslim population in our towns and cities for they remain silent. If these people truly wish to live in peace with us they should be demonstrating on the streets in their millions right across Europe condemning the atrocious actions of Islamic State, and forcing out all the radical Imams in their Mosques. But they don’t do they?

We don’t see moderate Imams on our T.V. screens decrying the violence perpetrated by I.S. and telling their Muslim brethren that such actions are against the Qur’an! So is it any wonder that the people of Europe are beginning to distrust the Muslims and all they stand for?

One Muslim Of A Very Small Minority

One Muslim Of A Very Small Minority

Unless the Muslim people of Europe come out strongly against these terrorist attacks I am convinced there will be much greater problems between the Muslim population and the local inhabitants. Should we ever see the scenario of many random attacks on Muslims in our towns and cities, this will probably turn the greater majority of the more moderate Muslims against the local inhabitants and we could end up with pitched battles on the streets.

There is to my mind only one way to stop this from happening, and that is for all Muslims to start working with the security services by turning in any radicals they know of, including radical preachers. If they do not do this, then I can see islamophobia increasing ten fold and there will be major confrontations.

I am sure that the greater majority of Muslims in Europe just want to live in peace with their neighbours, but they need to rid themselves of the discontents among them so they can do that. It does no-one any good to listen to the radical Imams day after day, for as we know, they have already persuaded hundreds of young Muslims to go and fight in Iraq and Syria or become terrorists here in Europe. I know I would not want my son to become a terrorist and would have the courage to stand up in the Mosque and denounce the preacher for his beliefs.

Round up all these radical preachers and deport them immediately. No going to the Human Rights Commission and spending years in appeal court, just put them on a plane and get rid of them.

Mourning In Paris

Mourning In Paris

If, or should I say when an attack takes place on our streets the security forces should ensure that every one of them is shot dead, sparing perhaps one or two from which to gain information. I just do not see the point of sentencing these individuals to spend a few years in a nice comfortable prison with all the amenities like TV, Playstation and music centres where they have the opportunity to convert other inmates to their cause as has happened in the past.

It will be a hard time ridding the world of these Islamic terrorists but it will be much easier with the cooperation of good Muslims.

Confused By The Situation In Syria? Let Me Explain.

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Religion, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , , on 18/11/2015 by floroy1942

All the politics surrounding the situation in Syria is confusing a lot of people, so here is a simple explanation of what is going on:

AssadPresident Assad (who is bad) is a nasty guy who got so nasty his people rebelled and the Rebels (who are good) started winning.

But then some of the rebels turned a bit nasty and are now called Islamic State (who are definitely bad) and some continued to support democracy (who are still good).

So the Americans (who are good) started bombing Islamic State (who are bad) and giving arms to the Syrian Rebels (who are good) so they could fight Assad (who is still bad) which was good.

Kurd LeaderBy the way, there is a breakaway state in the north run by the Kurds who want to fight IS (which is a good thing) but the Turkish authorities think they are bad, so we have to say they are bad whilst secretly thinking they’re good and giving them guns to fight IS (which is good) but that is another matter.

Getting back to Syria. President Putin (bad, as he invaded Crimea and the Ukraine and killed lots of folks including that nice Russian man in London with polonium) has decided to back Assad (who is still bad) by attacking IS (who are also bad) which is sort of a good thing?

PutinBut Putin (still bad) thinks the Syrian Rebels (who are good) are also bad, and so he bombs them too, much to the annoyance of the Americans (who are good) who are busy backing and arming the rebels (who are also good).

Now Iran (who used to be bad, but now they have agreed not to build any nuclear weapons and bomb Israel are now good) are going to provide ground troops to support Assad (still bad) as are the Russians (bad) who now have ground troops and aircraft in Syria.

So a Coalition of Assad (still bad) Putin (extra bad) and the Iranians (good, but in a bad sort of way) are going to attack IS (who are bad) which is a good thing, but also the Syrian Rebels (who are good) which is bad.

CorbinNow the British (obviously good, except Corbin who is probably bad) and the Americans (also good) cannot attack Assad (still bad) for fear of upsetting Putin (bad) and Iran (good / bad) and now they have to accept that Assad might not be that bad after all compared to IS (who are super bad).

So Assad (bad) is now probably good, being better than IS (no real choice there) and since Putin and Iran are also fighting IS that may now make them good. America (still good) will find it hard to arm a group of rebels being attacked by the Russians for fear of upsetting Mr Putin (now good) and that mad ayatollah in Iran (also good) and so they may be forced to say that the Rebels are now bad, or at the very least abandon them to their fate. This will lead most of them to flee to Turkey and on to Europe or join IS (still the only constantly bad group).

Sunni Versus ShiaTo Sunni Muslims, an attack by Shia Muslims (Assad and Iran) backed by Russians will be seen as something of a Holy War, and the ranks of IS will now be seen by the Sunnis as the only Jihadis fighting in the Holy War and hence many Muslims will now see IS as good.

Sunni Muslims will also see the lack of action by Britain and America in support of their Sunni rebel brothers as something of a betrayal (might have a point) and hence we will be seen as bad.

So now we have America (now bad) and Britain (also bad) providing limited support to Sunni Rebels (bad) many of whom are looking to IS (good / bad) for support against Assad (now good) who, along with Iran (also good) and Putin (also, now, unbelievably, good ) are attempting to retake the country Assad used to run before all this started?

I hope this clears up the situation for you.

My thanks to the anonymous author.

How Long Before Britain Goes ‘Pork Free’?

The Humble Ham Sandwich – Don’t Let The Muslims See It!!!

I read a news item today that completely astounded me. New guidelines are being prepared by the interfaith group CoExist House to stop office workers from placing sausage rolls and ham sandwiches in the office fridge alongside other products. And guess who it is intended to please: The Muslims Of Course!

The groups idea is to get the practice banned in all office premises so that Muslims will not be offended by having pork next to their food in the fridge.

Andy Dinham The 'Do-Gooder'

Andy Dinham The ‘Do-Gooder’

In defense of his policy Andy Dinham, professor of faith and public policy at Goldsmiths, University of London said, “It would be good etiquette to avoid heating up foods that might be prohibited for people of other faiths. The microwave example is a good one. We also say, ‘Don’t put kosher or halal and other… special foods next to another [food] or, God forbid, on the same plate.”

Ukip MEP for the North East Jonathan Arnott said: “It’s exactly this kind of nonsense proposal that leads to segregation, misunderstanding and intolerance.”

The Sunday Joint - Roast Pork! Hmmm!

The Sunday Joint – Roast Pork! Hmmm!

Really, who’s damn country is this, ours, or does it now belong to Muslims? I can see that before long these whining ‘Do-Gooders’ will have pork banned throughout the entire country just to please the bloody Muslims! Gone forever would be pork pies, bacon for breakfast, sausage rolls, ham, party sausages and the pork roast for Sunday dinner. It makes you wonder what else they are going to come up with!

If this attitude keeps up among these idiots I can see them demanding that all British women wear a burka to show the proper respect for the Muslim faith!!!!!

I don’t know about you, but to me the whole country is going stark raving mad in its attempts to ‘please the Muslims’. How much longer do we have to suffer these idiots dictating what we can and cannot do in our own country?

My simple answer to the Muslims is: If you don’t like the way we do things then move somewhere else!!!!!!

An Islamic Dilemma

Posted in Afghanistan, America, Arab, Benefits, Britain, British Humour, Immigration, Muslim, News, Religion with tags , , , , on 22/08/2015 by floroy1942

As many know, Islamic marriage rules are complicated because of so many intermarriages. This is just one example of a dilemma that can arise because of this phenomenon:

Dear Benefits Office Manager,
My name is Mohammed Reza and I live in Tower Hamlets London and I would like to present before you the following story. Many years ago, I married a widow out of love who had an 18-year-old daughter.
After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a number of times, and he fell in love with my step-daughter. My father eventually married her without my authorization.
As a result, my step-daughter legally became my step-mother and my father my son-in-law.
My father’s wife (also my step-daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my stepdaughter’s mother. This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father.
As you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother of my father’s wife. Therefore, it appears that I am also my wife’s grandchild.
A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my father’s brother-in-law, the step-son of my father’s wife, and my uncle.
My son is also my stepmother’s brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather.
In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the following:
Does my son, who is also my uncle, my father’s son-in-law, and my stepmother’s brother, fulfil the requirements for receiving childcare benefit?
Sincerely yours,
Mohammed.

See what I mean! I would hate to be the benefits manager who has to sort this out.

Oh! By the way, it’s not a real story.

Charlie Hebdo – Out Of The Frying Pan Into The Fire?

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Britain, Demonstration, European Union, Insurgents, News, Relationships, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 17/01/2015 by floroy1942

Charlie HebdoThe tragic events of last week and the mass outpouring of indignation at the attack on free speech has it seems backfired. The release of the recent edition of Charlie Hebdo, with the cover featuring once again the Prophet Mohammed, has caused a storm of protest across the Islamic world.

Iranian President Hassan Rowhani  Condemns Paris Attack

Iranian President Hassan Rowhani Condemns Paris Attack

Countries like Iran, whose leaders condemned the attack in Paris, have now become a hotbed of violent protest at the release of the paper’s latest edition, which it sees once again as a direct insult to the Prophet.

Muslims all across the Arab world, and the Islamic followers in other countries, are incensed at what they consider a direct insult to their religion.

World Leaders Gather In Protest

World Leaders Gather In Protest

This latest edition of Charlie Hebdo has sold over 7 million copies compared to its normal circulation of around 70,000, due purely to the high profile the attack has had across the world. At the massive demonstration in support of the paper and its right to free speech, leaders from across the world came to Paris in solidarity against the terror attack that took the lives of seventeen staff members. Arab countries from across the Middle East publicly condemned the attack, even Iran, which as we all know has been chief among the Arab nations supporting terrorist groups.

Now, one week later it is clear the western world, and particularly France, is not ‘out of the woods’ yet. Seldom has there been such mass demonstrations among the Islamic people where so many, from so many countries have come together to protest.

Muslim Hatred

Muslim Hatred

To me it seems this one terror act has started a fire that will take a long time and much effort to put out. Such is the current level of hatred among Muslims for ‘infidels’ who dared so dramatically to insult their religion that it has done a huge service to the insurgent groups who will undoubtedly gain more recruits. It appears to me that we may have inadvertently lit the fuse to a new wave of terrorist attacks across the western countries.

Belgian Terrorist Arrest

Belgian Terrorist Arrest

The many arrests in Belgium, France and Germany this last week are an indication that groups are already forming to continue the slaughter initiated by the Charlie Hebdo attackers. In several European countries security forces and police are on high alert to try and head off these attacks, but it may be impossible to stop them all.

Spain has recently called for a review of the Shengan Agreement that opened all inner European borders many years ago. They say the reinstatement of border checks may help prevent the free travel of insurgents once in Europe. This may well be a good idea when you consider that terror groups, once on European soil, are free to travel from country to country.

Muhammad-The-Ideal-ProphetFor the people of France the Charlie Hebdo attack was a direct assault on free speech, which like many western countries is held to be sacrosanct. It had nothing to do with insulting another’s religion, but this was an unfortunate sideline. Everyone knows how touchy the Islamists are about insulting their prophet, and in the light of that information, I do find that the cartoons lampooning Mohammed to be somewhat provocative. Just because you have the right to do something does not make it a justifiable act.

Free Speech

Free Speech

This is in essence what the Pope said in a speech recently and to a point I have to agree with him. Just because you have the right to insult someone does not necessarily mean you have to do it. At first I was dead against what he said for it seemed he was taking sides, but on reflection I realized that his words were true. In the West we know how touchy the Islamists are about their Prophet Mohammed, so why step into the lions mouth and do something that offends them. As we see with this episode, all it has done is inflame passions against us.

So here we are, with one western newspaper starting a wave of hatred for anything non-Muslim among the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world. What have we got ourselves into?

It is clear that insurgent groups like Islamic State and al Quada will use this current wave of hate to recruit more members, and al Quada itself will feel justified in beginning a wave of attacks across Europe. Countries like France, Britain, Belgium and Germany may well become the main targets for these killers, and no matter how alert the security forces are, some will always get through.

It is already known that European Muslims fighting for Islamic State in Syria and Iraq have been trained in terror tactics, and many of them are already back in their country of residence. This fact poses a major problem for the security forces across Europe because to track down all of them when they return is difficult.

This whole episode is a very sad indication of our times where religious hatred, the likes of which we have not seen for a thousand years, is destroying the fabric of civilization and turning us against one another.

Syria’s Children To Become The Lost Generation?

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, Children, Human Rights, Insurgents, News, Security Council, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 06/01/2015 by floroy1942

Reports out today suggest that children living in areas controlled by the Islamic State (IS) in Eastern Syria, could become the lost generation due to restrictions placed upon them by the militants. Last December I.S. closed all the schools until a new curriculum is released.

In all, an estimated 670,000 school children have been banned from attending until the curriculum has been sanitized to conform one hundred percent with Islamic Law by the terrorists (or at least their version of it).

The I.S. has also informed all teachers that they must undergo retraining before being able to teach again. Obviously with the intention that they teach what the I.S. wants and nothing else. From this we can assume that children attending schools in these areas will be groomed to believe in the I.S. version of Islam and follow their ideals.

Last year in Syria alone, an estimated 160 children died, and 343 injured in direct attacks on schools, or when their school was caught in the middle of the fighting.

Between 2.1 and 2.4 million children in Syria are unable to attend school regularly  because of the fighting, which means the country could end up with a lost generation who must survive without a full education.

This is without doubt a tragic situation, for a good education is everybody’s right. It is however noteworthy that in the Islamic religion girls are not educated to the same level as boys on religious grounds.

UNICEF’s Syrian representative Christophe Boulierac, said in statement: “In December there was a decree of the Islamic State ordering the stoppage of education in areas under its control.” He added, “Attacks on schools, teachers and students are further horrific reminders of the terrible price Syria’s children are paying in a crisis approaching its fifth year.”

This brings me to the question, why has this war been going on for five long years? With all this upheaval in the Middle East why hasn’t the United Nations stepped in and put an end to the war and forced the perpetrators to sit around the negotiating table? Just like the current trouble in Ukraine they are sitting on the sidelines doing nothing when they have the power to stop it.

Someone needs to stand before the entire U.N. Council, wake them out of their slumber and give them a good talking to! The U.N. was formed with the idea of mediating between countries to prevent the outbreak of wars, but instead they sit on their backsides and watch from the sidelines. I know many of my regular readers have heard all this from me in the past, but I would love to give them all a good talking to.

What has been happening in the Middle East is shocking beyond compare, especially when it has cost so many innocent lives and now is ruining the lives of future generations.

It is not difficult to imagine what the ‘new’ curriculum will contain. For sure it will extol the I.S. propaganda and turn children into radicals that believe in the I.S. version of Islam. This as we now know is based on conformity with what they say, and will include total submissiveness and the worst forms of brutality for non-compliance.

I.S. have already shown the world what they will do to those who stand up against them and their beliefs with their much publicised be-headings and torture.

I.S. Leader Is Already Urging His Followers To Attack Saudi Arabia.

Recent news has shown that they are already starting to push their ideology into neighbouring countries, and chief among them is Saudi Arabia. As usual it starts in a small way, but given time can blossom into a major problem. If nothing is done to stop them the whole Middle East could become a war zone.

This is one of the reasons why all countries must come together and stop them, militarily if necessary. If we do not, then what is happening now will be the tip of the iceberg.
