How Barbaric Can You Get!

The Message

The Message

I just read a news piece about an eighteen-year-old Pakistani girl who was burned to death by her mother for marrying a man she loved. Just another example of the so-called ‘Honour Killings’ which take place in Pakistan on a regular basis. From the report it seems that the mother strangled her and set her alight even though she was still alive. Its hard to imagine the pain this young girl must have gone through before she died.

The Aftermath

The Aftermath

When the case came to court the mother was sentenced to death for this outrageous crime, a decision I agree with totally. The woman confessed to killing her 18-year-old daughter, Zeenat Rafiq for “bringing shame on the family”. None of her family claimed her body for burial, and it was left to the in-laws to perform the burial ceremony.

It has for a long time been the tradition in Muslim lands like Pakistan for the daughter to marry a man who is chosen by the parents. This sometimes happens with children as young a seven or eight and they have no say in it. The marriage can be for a number of reasons, like paying a debt to the man or family of the husband, or simply to cement ties with the family of the groom.

Whatever you may think of this practice, to me it is barbaric, but it is an unwritten law among some societies. The Pakistani government have tried to stop this practice but it still goes on because it is tradition among some sectors of Pakistani society. Numerous honour killings have been carried out in Pakistan, where mainly girls face the wrath of family members for marrying a man of their choice.

A Victim

A Victim

In July 2016, Pakistani social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch was allegedly strangled to death by her brother in the province of Punjab. In the same month, British woman Samia Shahid was allegedly killed by her father and her former husband after she chose to divorce him and marry another man. In Pakistan alone there are over a thousand such honour killings a year, and nine times out of ten no-one is punished.

In accordance with tradition the killers can be ‘forgiven’ by the victim’s family and no further action is taken by the authorities. New legislation was passed by the government in October 2016, but many ignore it for they stick with tradition. The new law provides for a mandatory prison sentence of 25 years to anyone convicted of killing for the sake of family honour, and no longer allows family members to legally pardon perpetrators. The law permits forgiveness only of an “honour” killer who is sentenced to death; if the killer is forgiven, he would still have to serve 25 years in jail.

In my view it just goes to show how backward these people are to have such a tradition. In this day and age you would think that such a practice would be a thing of the past, but it is not.

The Muslim religion is well-known throughout the world for its barbarity, like chopping off the hands of thieves, stoning to death of women and executions with a sword. There can be little doubt that Islam is the most barbaric religion on the planet. Will it ever end? I doubt it for it is so ingrained in their culture.

Can We Solve The Calais Crisis?

Posted in Afghanistan, America, Benefits, Britain, European Union, Extradition, Immigrants, News, Pakistan, Police with tags , , , , on 02/09/2016 by floroy1942

For more than ten years migrants have been gathering at Calais in northern France trying to get across the Channel to England. It is estimated that currently there are 12,000 migrants, almost all of whom are illegal, and according to the French many more are on the way. It is clear that soon the crisis at Calais will explode as they become more frustrated.

Local people already complain that the migrants are rapidly becoming far more violent than they used to be and it seems that everyone is blaming the British.

The Camp

The Calais Camp

What the French government and people fail to comprehend is that all these migrants are on French soil, NOT British soil, so therefore they are subject to French Law. Britain is not forced to allow these people entry to the country, and it is up to Britain to decide who enters our land, not the French.

For me the French made a very big mistake when they allowed these people to gather at Calais in the first place. With their cavalier  “Oh this is a British problem not ours” attitude they have created this whole mess.

Had the French been clever enough to realize that by sending these people back where they came from as soon as they started gathering, this whole debacle could have been avoided. Also we would not have been talking about thousands, but possibly a couple of hundred.

Migrants - Calais

Migrants – Calais

The current situation is definitely not acceptable to the residents of Calais and never has been, but the Mayor of Calais has still not taken any direct action to get the government involved in deportations. All she keeps insisting is that they should all be moved to England and kept in camps along the south coast. What she seems to forget is that these people are on FRENCH soil and are therefore a french problem. The fact they are trying to get into England is totally irrelevant. I am damn sure that were the situation reversed, and we were trying to dump our illegal migrants on to France, they would kick up one hell of a fuss and be complaining to the Human Rights Council on the first day.

According to Jean-Claude Delage, the trade union’s general secretary, (I fail to see what he has to do with the problem) there will soon be so many illegal immigrants living in the ‘Jungle’ camp, that an “en masse” evacuation would be “too dangerous” to implement.

Destruction

Destruction

I don’t believe that! It would seem to me that the obvious solution would be to surround the entire refugee compound in both Calais and Grande-Synthe in Dunkirk with troops and have every one of the migrants arrested, taken to a holding area at a military airbase, and then flown back to wherever they came from. Do this a few times and the migrants would soon get the idea that there is no point in trying anymore.

It is International Law that any refugee can claim asylum in the FIRST nation they enter outside their own. This rule has been completely forgotten by all and sundry, because most of the migrants have travelled through four or five countries to get to the English Channel and want to come to Britain for the free handouts from the government. Why did they not claim asylum in Greece or Italy? I’ll tell you why – because Britain is the most generous country in Europe when it comes to asylum seekers and immigrants.

Fighting To Get To England

Fighting To Get To England

The English authorities well know that 80% of these people are not fleeing violence in their own country, they are economic refugees who are out to make money off the British Welfare System. They know that as soon as they get into Britain they will be given a place to live, food, and money every week by the government, and they need do nothing for it.

It is hoped that Theresa May now she is P.M., will do something about this enormous scandal.

Pakistan Honour Killing

Posted in America, Britain, Children, European Union, Immigrants, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion, Sharia Law on 25/07/2016 by floroy1942

1I was somewhat amused to read yesterday that Pakistan is to pass a law against ‘honour killing’. We will have to wait a while to see how effective such a law will be, but I doubt it will make much difference.

Honour killing is so ingrained in the Pakistani Muslim culture, that to stop it will be almost impossible no matter what the government does. Pakistan has the highest rate of honour killings in the world. Last year for example almost 1,100 women and 88 men were killed by family members to save the family ‘honour’.

A Forced Marriage

A Forced Marriage

As you can see from the figures, most are women because they refused to marry a man chosen by the family, and in some cases, married someone else. Many are killed because they prefer to wear western style clothing and not the hijab that covers their entire body, this is particularly true in Britain where many young women are killed. It may just be that they are caught talking to males without a female chaperone.

Whatever you may think of the Muslim culture, it is barbaric!

Qandeel Baloch

Qandeel Baloch

This all comes after the murder of social media star Qandeel Baloch, whose brother confessed to her killing, claiming he was incensed by some of her risqué postings on the web. He told The Associated Press that he killed her after being taunted about her photos on social media. “I was determined either to kill myself or kill her,” Azeem said. He confessed to slipping her sedatives and then strangling her in her sleep.

Honour Killing

Honour Killing

Many killings are barbaric in nature, such as slitting the throat or burning to death of the victim. Under Muslim law the killer can be forgiven by relatives and family and the matter is taken no further. The police sometimes arrest these killers, but more often than not they are released without charge because they have been ‘forgiven’ by the rest of the family. In some cases the women are not killed but have acid poured over their faces as punishment, or their noses cut off, all to make then unattractive to men.

Acid Punishment

Acid Punishment

That this kind of behaviour can still exist in today’s ‘enlightened’ era is to say the least, shameful. No other religion on Earth can be described as so utterly ruthless. It reminds me of the South American Inca’s in the 1500’s with their brutal sacrifices to their god, and the pulling apart of  criminals by horses in Europe in the Middle Ages.

Mankind does have a barbaric history, but surely in this day and age we should have left all that far behind, but it would appear that the Muslims cannot do this.

All punishments are enshrined in the Qu’ran, which is like the Muslim bible. They include the cutting off of a thief’s hand, or foot for a second offence, the stoning to death of those who break the marital law, which again are mainly women, and of course, honour killings. You will also be killed if you try to leave the Muslim religion.

Murdered By Their Father In Britain

Murdered By Their Father In Britain

It is indeed sad that this religion will never change because their youth are literally brainwashed into the Muslim faith. As soon as they are old enough to understand and read, they are given a copy of the Qu’ran and made to study and learn it in its entirety. They do not have a choice of which religion they will follow for that is not allowed.

Burned Alive Because She Would Not Marry The Man Of her Families Choice

Burned Alive Because She Would Not Marry The Man Of her Families Choice

I am well aware that many Muslims live in other countries and accept to a certain extent the culture of their new home, but that does not mean all do. The whole of Europe is rapidly changing as more and more immigrants enter, for they take over entire districts, and in some cases towns, and turn it into a replica of what they left behind when they came here.

Sharia Law

Sharia Law

Many governments have ignored the introduction of Sharia Law in immigrant areas, and in some cases the situation is so bad that western people are moving out of the area as fast as they can. The police dare not even enter some of these areas where Sharia is enforced, and many governments are doing nothing to outlaw this practice.

Where it will all end is anybody’s guess!

Why Does The United Nations Ignore The Threat Of ISIS?

84 Dead And Over 200 Wounded

84 Dead And Over 200 Wounded

I would like to know why the the United Nations has remained silent after so many tragic attacks by Islamic State, which has culminated in the recent attack in Nice with so many fatalities. In all the years since Muslim radicalization, and the continuing outrages committed by this group that has cost so many innocent lives, why have they stayed silent?

United Nations CharterArticle One of the United Nations Charter states:

To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;

Nice Killer

I am still waiting for any collective action that will put Islamic State out of business. Previously they have done nothing more than verbally ‘condemn’ these acts of  outrage, but now they do not even do that.

Soldiers Fighting The Communists

Soldiers Fighting The Communists

The United Nations was formed after the Second World War to ensure world peace, and any aggressor would be attacked by a force of arms made up of many countries. The last time this happened was in 1950, when many countries of the world formed an army that went into Korea to prevent communist expansion into South Korea. This was successful.

Since that time they have done nothing!

Ever since then there have been conflicts across the globe that has cost millions of lives but they no longer seem to be interested.

9/11 The Atrocity That Woke Up The World To The Hidden Menace Of Jihad

9/11 The Atrocity That Woke Up The World To The Hidden Menace Of Jihad

Ever since the 9/11 atrocity, Muslim insurgency has grown out of all proportion and in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria the death toll has risen to millions. In the last two years we have seen many attacks on the European continent that cost many innocent lives, but do they do anything about it? The simple answer is NO! Where they previously ‘condemned’ these actions, now they don’t even bother to do that anymore. They just stay silent.

I have to ask, what is the point of such a huge organization that is committed to ensuring world peace if they do nothing.

A Jihadi Execution

A Jihadi Execution

Muslim radicalization has spread all across the world into 169 different countries with acts of terrorism being carried out almost on a daily basis, the latest being the Nice attack with 84 dead and more than 200 wounded. They have stayed silent and hide in their offices, not wishing to be involved!

I have said this before and will repeat it here, it is time that the United Nations gathered together an international military force and went from country to country where these Muslim animals are hiding and kill every one of them. Never mind local politics or boundaries, go in there and wipe them out, every last one of them. It can be made clear that the force will in no way interfere with local politics, their sole job is to wipe out every last Muslim extremist and then leave.

Should any Arabic country for example raise an objection, they will be totally isolated and cut off from the world until they agree. If they object, then they undoubtedly have sympathy for the I.S. troublemakers, and all the countries of the world must gather and tell them straight, either comply or be isolated.

The Situation

The Situation

The United Nations was set up with a bold purpose, to ensure global peace, but sadly today they seem afraid of getting their hands dirty, for they do absolutely nothing to solve this major problem to world peace.

Their leader Ban-Ki-Moon is a total waste of space and a coward, for he should be the one who brings countries together to fight this terrible plague that has hit the world. Islamic State have already said they will not cease until the whole world is Muslim, which is the reason they are infiltrating one country after another and creating Jihadi cells who go out and persuade normal, peaceful Muslims to ‘take up the banner’.

If nothing is done to curb this action by military means the situation will get worse and worse, until eventually it will become uncontrollable and we see open warfare on the streets in years to come.

The Message Many Heed!

The Message Many Heed!

I apologize to those Muslims who do wish to live in peace with other religions for I know there are many, but in a blog many moons ago I reported on a world-wide survey that declared a huge majority of Muslims, especially in Pakistan and some Middle East countries among others, secretly held the opinion that Islam should rule the world and all countries. This view is against the teachings of Islam that states all religions should be equal, however, these people obviously support the Jihadi’s without being obvious about it.

This is yet another reason for the United Nations to take direct action against the various Jihadi groups around the world and wipe them from the face of the world. Once this has been completed the common people will be free to get back to the real meaning of Islam without being tricked into following the Jihadist movement. Far too many people have lost their lives in various attacks and it has to stop once and for all.

Sorry! Can't Hear You!

The U.N. – Sorry! Can’t Hear You!

So I for one sincerely hope that the U.N. will finally get off it fat backside and take some positive action against these people before the whole world ends up being at war. For it is clear that in Europe alone these people are making converts to their cause at an alarming rate, and if it is allowed to continue there will never be peace.

Pakistan – The Devil’s Playground

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Equality, Justice, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 05/07/2016 by floroy1942

I was shocked to read in today’s news about the brutal death of a young girl who married against her mother’s wishes, and was brutally murdered because of it. The girl, eighteen-year-old Zeenat was choked by her mother, and while still alive, burnt to death with kerosene. After this despicable act her mother, Parveen Rafiq screamed from her rooftop, “I have killed my daughter. I have saved my honor. She will never shame me again.”

A Victim Of Sharia

A Victim Of Sharia

The whole saga began when Zeenat decided to marry her childhood sweetheart and not a man whom her mother had chosen in a so-called ‘arranged marriage’, a member of their own social caste, the Rajput. Zeenat had her heart set on a childhood friend, a 20-year-old motorcycle mechanic named Hassan Khan who lived nearby in their crowded Lahore shantytown. Her death on June 8 was the latest in a series of increasingly gruesome “honour” killings in Pakistan, which has one of the highest rates of such killings in the world.

After they married Zeenat went to live with Hassan and his family, but her mother and uncle came to the door many times begging her to come home at least for a few days because they forgave her. Her mother wanted to arrange a proper marriage for the pair to dispel the idea held by the neighbours that she had eloped. She eventually agreed, but on the fourth day was killed by her mother in the aforementioned despicable way.

Neighbours outside Rafiq’s home all agreed that the mother was driven to kill Zeenat, and she should go free. “Daughters are duty-bound to maintain the honor of the family,” said Muneeba Bibi. “It’s better to have no children than to have a daughter who brings you shame. Zeenat’s killing was a good lesson for all the girls here to protect the family honour,” she said.

Zeenat’s mother has been arrested as police and prosecutors found a way around the forgiveness loophole. Rafiq and one of her sons suspected of helping in Zeenat’s killing have been detained and face charges under the anti-terrorism law, which defines any act that causes general panic as terrorism. We will have to wait and see how that goes in court.

A Girl Who Assisted Her Friend To Get Married

A Girl Who Assisted Her Friend To Get Married

In another such case a mother in Abbottabad slit the throat of her pregnant 22 year-old daughter who married a man she loved. The victim’s girlfriend who helped her, was systematically tortured and then injected with poison. After that she was strapped into the seat of a car which was then set alight. She died in absolute agony.  The council of local elders, ordered her killing as a message to others.

Last year, 1,096 women and 88 men were killed in “honour” crimes in Pakistan, according to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. The fact of the matter is that the numbers are most likely far higher, as not all get reported. Those who kill for “honour” are almost never punished in Pakistan.

Both Stabbed As Torture Before Being Killed.

Both Stabbed As Torture Before Being Killed.

This country has the highest rate of honour crimes in the world, and the sad thing is, the perpetrators of these killings are very seldom punished for their crimes. It’s all to do with the savage Sharia Law that allows such actions. The law, based on Islamic Shariah allows the family of a victim to forgive a killer, and in these cases the killers are almost always family. So other relatives give their forgiveness, unwilling to see loved ones jailed.

It is a fact that more than 70 percent of Pakistan’s 180 million people are under 30, and many are challenging these traditions to an unprecedented degree. Marvi Sermid, a women’s rights activist said, “The old order of misogyny and extremism is falling apart, is really crumbling.” The campaign has been assisted by women going to school and working outside the home, and social media has helped women raise their voices. 

Message Of The Young

Message Of The Young

The government proposed a law aimed at protecting women against violence, but in May the council put forward an alternative allowing men to “lightly beat” their wives. On TV talk shows, guests denounced the council as misogynist and out of touch. Some lawmakers called for it to be disbanded.

I have a feeling that this argument will rage on for a very long time, for although the younger generation in Pakistan seem to be more enlightened, the old are not, and stick fast to their ancient traditions.

To me these people are still living in the stone age and it all has to do with the Muslim Sharia Law. It is not the same in all Muslim countries, but we still get to hear about stoning to death, the chopping off of a thief’s hand and hangings in the street.

By comparison I will not say that our western justice system is better, for many killers and thieves get ridiculously short sentences, and have an easy time of it in prison in many countries. But it is better than the sheer savagery of Sharia Law.

Will it ever change, I doubt it!

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!

Proof Most of The Refugees ARE Fake!

Posted in Afghanistan, America, Benefits, Britain, David Cameron, European Union, Germany, Immigrants, News, Pakistan with tags , , , , on 22/09/2015 by floroy1942

EurostatA report released by Eurostat, the E.U’s official statistics agency, has laid bare the lie of refugees fleeing to Europe saying they all come from Syria. It endorses what I have said for many weeks about the influx of refugees and their origins.

They all claim to be from Syria in the hope of being accepted into the E.U. as war refugees, but now official figures confirm this to be a massive lie. It has taken quite a while, but finally the European Union politicians have the truth in front of them. What they will do with this information is anyone’s guess.

Coming Thick And Fast

Coming Thick And Fast

The report covers just the second quarter of this year when 230,000 crossed into Europe with only 44,000 actually originating from Syria, and a further 13,900 coming from Iraq. The second largest group of 27,000 are in fact from Afghanistan, with another 17,700 coming from Albania of all places where there is no war or strife. The rest come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Africa.

While the 57,900 from Syria and Iraq have a legitimate claim to be refugees from war torn countries, the rest most certainly do not. This makes them purely economic migrants, and means that a total of 173,000 from the entire 230.000 are not entitled to refugee status in the E.U., and do not forget that this is only from April, May and June of this year.

In recent weeks of course the influx has more than doubled, but the same is still true. It’s a safe bet to assume that in time it will be shown the large majority of refugees coming to our shores since this report was issued also have no right to stay here!

Coming Thick And Fast And All On Top Of The Non-EU Economic Migrants.

Coming Thick And Fast And All On Top Of The Non-EU Economic Migrants.

Most of the economic migrants are from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and a few African countries, all claiming to be from Syria in order to gain entry, but now the facts are out in the open.

Pakistani Passport

Pakistani Passport

I previously reported on the Macedonia police and border guards finding a huge number of discarded Pakistani and Bangladesh passports and identity documents in fields along the border. It becomes obvious that asylum seekers from these countries know they have little chance of being accepted as refugees, but thought they could be if they had no documents and claimed to be from Syria.

Germany alone is expecting more than a million asylum seekers by years end, and the fact is that should Europe accept all those swarming over our external borders this year, you can be sure they will keep on coming year after year because they look upon Europe as the ‘Promised Land’. Eventually the entire continent will be totally overrun and the economy of all European countries will be destroyed.

Example of Child Benefit Across The E.U.

Example of Child Benefit Across The E.U.

How on earth can the many European nations afford to house, cloth, and feed such numbers for free when their people are already being hard hit by the slowdown of the European economy?

I am just amazed that the dumb idiots in Brussels cannot see this and start returning those who have no right to be here. While I do have pity for those who are genuinely fleeing war in their home country and think they should be helped, I have none for those who come here just to make money and live off benefits.

This unprecedented influx of refugees has turned Europe on its head and caused severe problems for the whole bloc. The idiots in Brussels have been demanding that each country take its share of 120.000 refugees but many have refused, and rightly so. Why should Europe accept several hundred thousand refugees who have no right to be here? It is tearing the economy of Europe to shreds, and will eventually cause severe suffering for the European people, especially the not so well off.

Spreading Out Across Europe

Spreading Out Across Europe

Right now they are spread out all across Europe which will make it almost impossible to rectify this major blunder. Many have already been registered and their lies believed, so they are now able to accept the handouts, housing and health care being offered to them by the various European governments for free. Also, after five years they will be given permanent status and legally become European citizens, which I think is a huge mistake.

The only thing I am grateful for is that Cameron has kept Britain out of this circus by refusing to accept any of the refugees currently flooding Europe. His plan of taking refugees directly from the transit camps in Jordan and Lebanon is a far better and more measured response.

Indeed - How Many?

Indeed – How Many?

What does come out of all this is that the British public are hardening their attitude towards the E.U. and Brussels as thousands of people sign up to the various pressure groups that want us out. As many know, Britain is to hold a referendum before the end of 2017 on whether we should stay in the E.U., but with this refugee crisis, more and more people are swinging to the ‘No’ side of the argument.

The Ukip leader Nigel Farage said: “It is clear that the issue of immigration is going to dominate this EU referendum campaign, with the border chaos across Europe making the issue even more of a concern for the British people than ever before. The choice is clear: either we vote to leave the EU and begin controlling the quality and quantity of those coming into the UK or we have complete open borders, with all of the problems and dangers that come with it.”

Sir Bill Cash

Sir Bill Cash

Sir Bill Cash, chairman of the Commons European Scrutiny Committee, called on Home Secretary Theresa May to press the German government to do more to tackle the migrant crisis. He urged her to “have a word with her counterpart to ensure that Germany does actually step up to the mark in doing the sort of things that are really going to help and stop the tsunami of millions of people who could well come over here and swamp Europe.”

More And More Will Come!

More And More Will Come!

It will be difficult to sort out the real refugees fleeing war in their own country, but it must be done and the economic refugees sent back. If the governments and the E.U. idiots in Brussels do not do this, the continent will indeed be swamped and that will have dire consequences for the future of us all.

Imagine that due to the stupidity and gross negligence of the current idiots in Brussels, at some time in the future Europe becomes ‘Europistan’, then you can bet your last dollar that America will be their next target.
I’m just glad I won’t be around to see it.

The Great Syrian Refugee Hoax

Posted in Afghanistan, Britain, European Union, Immigration, Islamic State, News, Pakistan, Politics, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , , on 08/09/2015 by floroy1942

The European Union is currently accepting tens of thousands of refugees monthly who claim to be Syrian. We are willing to accept these people because they are fleeing violence and death, but how many are really from Syria?

Pakistani And Bangladeshi Refugees Arriving In Lesbos.

Pakistani And Bangladeshi Refugees Arriving In Lesbos.

Evidence has now come to light that very many are indeed not, and are nothing more than economic refugees from places like Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, along with some African States. Serbian border police say that 90% of those arriving from Macedonia, some 3,000 a day, claim they are Syrian although they have no documents to prove it.

“You can see that something is fishy when most of those who cross into Serbia enter January first as the date of their birth,” said border police officer Miroslav Jovic. “Guess that’s the first date that comes to their mind.” The chief of the European Union border agency Frontex, Fabrice Leggeri, said that trafficking in fake Syrian passports has increased. “A lot of people enter Turkey with fake Syrian papers, because they know that they’ll get asylum in the EU more easily,” said.

Pointing out a black African, a Syria refugee said, “There are too many people saying we are from Syria, but he is not from Syria. He is black and he said ‘I am from Syria.’ Unbelievable.” German customs officials have intercepted many packages of passports sent to Germany, some fake and some genuine.

Misguided People. Genuine Refugees Yes, But Economic Ones No!

Misguided People. Genuine Refugees Yes, But Economic Ones No!

Serbian border patrols have found many discarded passports, identity cards, driving licences and other identity documents in fields along the border fence put up by Hungary. Most of the documents are from Pakistani’s and people from Bangladesh. From this it is clear that many refugees are from countries that are not at war, and are therefore here purely for economic reasons, and yet there are still some misguided souls among us that wish to welcome them.

Among those who had no second thoughts about ditching their true identity was Rafik from Pakistan.”I’m leaving my old life behind,” said Rafik, who gave only his first name because he feared repercussions when applying for asylum in Germany. “I’m starting a new one. I don’t have a passport, nor any other identity paper,” he said, as he dashed under the fence into Hungary. “Let’s see which country they will choose to kick me back to.”

These people believe they have a greater chance of being accepted if they have forged papers, or none at all and say they are from Syria. This is the main reason why we have so many tens of thousands of ‘refugees’ entering Europe.

No Families

No Families

A very, very large portion of them are bogus and it remains to be seen what happens in the next year. As I have said previously, the largest portion of these refugees are young to middle-aged men without families. You can see that on every piece of news footage and it makes me think about where this will lead us in the future.

Another danger is that when we allow all these young and middle-aged men into Europe, they will set about bringing their families here too. So we accept one hundred thousand refugees, and within a year or two that swells to over half a million as their families arrive. What chance do our Social, Housing and Health Services have when that happens?

Islamic State Perhaps?

It is known by the authorities that Islamic State fighters are crossing into Europe disguised as refugees, so it makes me wonder what will happen in the next year or two. With so many fit young men entering, we could end up with a major problem within a short time.

While I feel extremely sorry for those who are fleeing the violence in Syria and Iraq and would welcome them with open arms, we are putting ourselves in extreme danger by accepting these economic refugees.

No matter what Angela Merkel says, there are not enough jobs around to take all these people, and their presence will cripple all Social Services in a short space of time.

I also find it extremely discomforting to hear that after a certain period these people will be given permission to stay permanently. This is not the right path! We should be prepared to give them residence only until the troubles in their homeland are solved but not give them permanent citizenship. This may sound harsh, but it is the right way to go.

Birthrate Comparison

Birthrate Comparison

The birthrate of the Islamic people far outstrips that of indigenous Europeans by five or six to one, so what does that say about the European continent in about twenty years time? Within that time frame they may become nearly 50% of the population, and in a few more years will outnumber us. That will be about the time when Europe becomes an Islamic state.

Refugees In Arab States

Refugees In Arab States

You also have to look at what would happen if the roles were reversed. Suppose that war breaks out in Europe and hundreds of thousands of people head south for asylum in the Arab States of the Middle East. Does anyone really think they would accept us with open arms? We are all Christian nations, and in many Islamic states Christianity is outright forbidden on pain of death.

These Middle Eastern States have already closed off their borders with Iraq and Syria and will not accept any refugees, although Jordan, the exception, does have a small number of refugee camps for them, but it is the only country.

While we are duty bound, which I accept, to help refugees from war-torn countries like Iraq and Syria, Europe is now being swamped with bogus refugees who are here only to improve their living standards. While you cannot condemn them for that, they are doing it at the cost of the European economy, and pretty soon all of us will be in dire straits.

European Union

European Union

While the decisions to take in refugees have been taken by some individual governments, the dictates from the European Council have also been a problem in this area. This is one reason why Britain is to hold a referendum in 2017 on leaving the union. This would make Britain an individual country that is not under the heel of those in Brussels.

A recent poll suggests that now 51% of British people are for leaving the European Union, up from 46% in a poll taken last July. Although I never put much faith in these polls, it is an indication of the trend in British thinking. Many fear the current trend in the refugee situation, and as many as 22% of the ‘No’ voters said they could change their minds if this situation continues.

The Endless Stream

The Endless Stream

It is fairly certain that the refugee crisis is far from over, because the more people we accept into Europe, the more will try to come here. The figures may well drop as the winter sets in, but you can bet your life that next spring it will start all over again. If there is even a vague chance of being accepted in Europe with their entire family, they will try.

The Future?

The Future?

The only thing that can stop that will be if the Islamic State terrorists currently moving into Europe start attacks on the continent. If that happens we could see major military action in many European countries as our armed forces are made to fight a domestic war in their own country. One Islamic State source has reported that several weeks ago at least four thousand I.S. had landed in Europe disguised as refugees. How many more are there in this current influx of people? As I recently reported, I.S. is now telling those who want to go to Syria and Iraq to fight with them to stay and begin carrying out terrorist attacks in their home countries.

Food for thought!

Calais

Calais

Although the tensions in Calais seem to have diminished, there are other parts of Europe that are struggling to deal with the immigrant crisis, and still the EU Council does nothing.

It makes me wonder why we bother having politicians at all, because apart from laying down stupid rules that no-one wants they never seem to be able to deal with a real crisis.

While Britain and France have struggled to control the thousands of migrants who are trying to cross over into Britain they have not lifted a finger to assist.

Bulgaria Refugee Camp

Bulgaria Refugee Camp

Now we also have a crisis in Italy, Greece, the Greek Islands and Bulgaria, all being over-run by migrants wanting to settle in Europe. So far this year a total of 350,000 migrants have landed on European shores, which is an increase of 175% over the same period last year. At this rate it will be close to a million by the end of the year. Should Europe take them all in and be done with it, or should we begin shipping many of them back where they came from?

Pakistan 'Refugees'

Pakistan ‘Refugees’

From news broadcasts it is clear that a large majority of ‘refugees’ are from Pakistan and they all want to settle here. Why? There is no war in Pakistan, but they are here because they are economic refugees and see an easy future in Europe. To begin with I think all those from Pakistan should be immediately repatriated to their own country which will take a great strain off our resources.

Many Are From Islamic State

Many Are From Islamic State

Some may find my stance on this issue harsh, but we cannot allow a whole continent to be swamped by refugees when the majority are here purely for economic reasons. While I have sympathy with those who are fleeing war, I have none for those who are coming here for an easy life. Plus the fact, how do we tell those belonging to Islamic State from genuine refugees?

If we accepted only genuine refugees from war-torn countries like Iraq the numbers would be more than halved, but the economic refugees only see Europe as somewhere to feather their nests!

One should not forget that for every migrant allowed to stay in Europe there will be a whole line of family following them. Wives, children, parents, grand-parents, uncles, aunts and their children, the list is endless, and how are we supposed to cater for this mass influx? Most will be living off benefits, especially in Britain which is an easy target for these people.

Kos - Immigrants Taking Over Tourist Hotels

Kos – Immigrants Taking Over Tourist Hotels

This invasion of people is crippling the economies of countries like Italy, Greece and Bulgaria and currently there is no answer, especially from the European Union idiots in Brussels! They just sit in their ivory tower and take no notice, probably hoping the whole crisis will disappear of its own accord. I have news for them: IT WILL NOT!

The situation in Bulgaria is now becoming desperate, for this year official data shows 25,000 people have applied for refugee status in Bulgaria in the past two years, as many as in the previous two decades combined. That may not sound like many but you have to remember that the country is both poor and small, and relies on EU financial support to receive and provide shelter, medical care and food for over 3,500 refugees housed in camps, and has already used 80 percent of the 4.2 million euros it received to that end.

Border FenceThings have become so desperate in the country that they have begun fencing off their border with Turkey, much like Hungary on its border with Serbia. No matter how desperate the situation in the country the usual ‘bleeding hearts’ people have condemned the move to put up the fence. Boris Cheshirkov, spokesman for the Bulgarian office of UNHCR is quoted as saying, “The barriers, not only in Bulgaria, are only increasing the risks to the people in a desperate situation, fleeing from war – but force them to put their lives in danger in the hands of smugglers and human traffickers,”

Boris Cheshirkov, Spokesman For The Bulgarian Office Of UNHCR

Boris Cheshirkov, Spokesman For The Bulgarian Office Of UNHCR

As you would expect, Human Rights groups and the United Nations’ refugee agency UNHCR have criticised the border fence, saying that barriers will not stop the refugee inflows. What these people forget is that the greater majority of ‘refugees’ coming to Europe are coming for economic reasons! They are not fleeing war in their homeland!

However, the problems in Bulgaria are nothing compared to those in Greece and Italy. As we all know, Greece is surviving on handouts from the ICC and the IMF but the refugee crisis is straining it to the limits. Only last week a total of 21,000 refugees landed on Greek shores. How much longer can the economy stand this pressure? We have all seen on the news the tens of thousands of migrants jamming the island of Kos among others. There are so many that removing them is a mighty task and costing millions of euros.

Enoch Powell

Enoch Powell

The simple answer is, this just cannot go on. Every day I read the comments of ordinary people on news items on the internet and it is clear they are close to having had enough. The governments will not take decisive action to solve this crisis and allow more and more to come to our shores. But every one that is successful gives ten more the idea that they too will be accepted. As I said, for every one that makes it there follows maybe twenty or more family members. This just cannot go on for if it does it will destroy Europe, its infrastructure, its economy and health care system. Eventually, as Enoch Powell predicted so long ago, there will be blood on the streets.

Time For Decisive Action Mr. Moon!

Time For Decisive Action Mr. Moon!

Europe desperately needs its government to make some decisive decisions to solve this crisis once and for all before we are swamped. But it is not only the E.U. that needs to get off its fat backside, but also the United Nations who could solve this entire crisis with a series of actions. I have often said on these pages that the U.N. must get together an international military force to go from country to country and wipe out all these terrorist groups that are responsible for this refugee debacle.

Is This What You Want For The World Mr. Moon?

Is This What You Want For The World Mr. Moon?

They should wipe out all groups like Islamic State, Boko Haram, al Shebab plus all the other 176 terrorist groups that infest this world. Once this is done all the refugees can go home and everything can return to normal. To many this may sound like an impossible task, but believe me, it is not! The U.N. acted 65 years ago when the North Koreans, under influence from the USSR attacked the south and solved the crisis. They can do the same with this one. It just needs someone with the balls to get things moving.

A Muslim’s View Of Muslims – And It Explains A Lot!

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Iran, Israel, Modern World, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion with tags , , , , on 25/05/2015 by floroy1942

I came across this in my e-mail folder yesterday and thought to pass it on because it explains an awful lot about Muslims and their behaviour. It sheds light on why they are so close-minded, and why they behave the way they do. After reading this it was like someone switched on a light when you try to understand the Muslim mind. In his comparisons the writer opens up a whole host of knowledge that I certainly did not know, and I suspect that you will not either.

It was written by Farrukh Saleem PhD who is a Muslim political scientist and economic theorist, financial analyst, writer and television personality. He was born in Pakistan and educated in The United States, and after investing in the New York Stock Exchange he began writing for various newspapers before returning to Pakistan where he became a writer for such newspapers as The News International, Pakistan’s largest English-language daily newspaper among others.

He has often written about the Jews and Israel, and in this recent article, published in the Muslim Times in 2013, Saleem advocates directing a friendly foreign policy towards Israel. When he draws comparisons between Muslims and Jews, he explains that the main Muslim problem is a failure to pass on knowledge:

Why are Jews so powerful? There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas, five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa. For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’, was a Jew. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Albert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis. Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases. Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission. Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology. Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy. Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill. George Wald won a Nobel for our understanding of the human eye. Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology. Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims (other than Peace Prizes for Arafat). Why are Jews so powerful? Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor; Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss, stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner, telephone microphone; Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi’s Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck’s), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts). Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American Secretary of State), Alan Greenspan (Fed. Chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman (US Senator), Madeleine Albright (American Secretary of State), Casper Weinberger (American Secretary of Defence), Maxim Litvinov (USSR Foreign Minister), David Marshal ( Singapore’s First Chief Minister), Issac Isaacs (Governor-General of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Goldwater (US Senator), Jorge Sampaio (President of Portugal), John Deutsch (CIA Director), Herb Gray (Canadian Deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British Home Secretary), Bruno Kreisky (Chancellor of Austria ) and Robert Rubin (American Secretary of Treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald (editor-in-chief of Time Magazine), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington Post), Joseph Lelyveld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New York Times).

The most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the world. Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold medals; Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medallist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker (Tennis) are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief of Baghdad ) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

So, why are Jews so powerful? Answer : EDUCATION

Why are Muslims so powerless? There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet: one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in Europe and six million in the Americas. Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims.

Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless? Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407. In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’, and intriguingly, not one university from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a literacy rate of 100 per cent. A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with a literacy rate of 100 per cent. Some 98 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world had completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same. Around 40 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world attended university while no more than two per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same. Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million. In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs. (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million). Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP. Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge!

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society. In Pakistan, there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK, the number of book titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20. Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan’s export of high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait, Morocco, and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent, while Singapore is at 58 per cent. Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless.? …..Because we aren’t producing knowledge,…..Because we aren’t diffusing knowledge.,…..Because we aren’t applying knowledge. And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies .

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion. America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion; China $8 trillion, Japan $3.8 trillion and Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis). Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion; Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion, Catholic Poland $489 billion and Buddhist Thailand $545 billion. ….. (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining). So, why are Muslims so powerless? Answer: Lack of education. All we do is shout to Allah the whole day! And blame everyone else for our multiple failures!

I guess that when you look at it this way, it does explain a lot of the problems with the Muslim world. Having viewed the points put forward by Farrukh Saleem I can find no fault with his logic. He is obviously a learned man who understands the Muslim world very well and everything he puts forward makes sense. No race can advance in today’s world without a certain level of education. A fact that is becoming more obvious as time goes by, and we see the changes that are being made in our daily lives with more and more technology.

Rape Capital Of Britain?

Welcome To Rotherham

Welcome To Rotherham

Disturbing news came out of Rotherham in South Yorkshire today that puts an entire council to shame. A government independent inspection has determined that the entire council is totally ‘unfit for purpose’ and  ‘in denial’ about its short-comings. Never in the history of Britain has such a damning report been written about a local council.

Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said the political leadership in Rotherham is “wholly dysfunctional”, and called for their immediate resignation which will take place as soon as they can be replaced by government commissioners.

The council consists of 62 people, of which 9 members are of the UK Independence Party, 2 are Independent, 2 are Conservative and 49 are Labour, so clearly a total domination by Labour.

A Girl In Danger

A Girl In Danger

The main cause for concern has been the handling of a total of 1,400 rapes of young girls in the town over the past 16 years. That comes to a startling average of 87 rapes a year over that period. This figure does not include grooming activities by Muslim gangs.

Professor Alexis Jay criticised councillors saying, “In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation were previously known to services because of child protection and neglect. It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.”

Looks Promising - Allah u Akbar!

Looks Promising – Allah u Akbar!

You will no doubt not be surprised to learn that almost all the rapes have been carried out by Pakistani Muslims who make up a mere 3.7% of the population.

In Yorkshire the Independent Police Complaints Commission refused to confirm that one police officer was under investigation and a further 20 in relation with their handling of such cases.

For a long time the newspapers have reported on the systematic rape of women in various countries like Pakistan and India where rape is an everyday thing. In these countries few women get through their lifetime without being raped at least once. It is a sad fact of the Muslim faith that men feel free to rape a woman without fear of retribution from the law, for the Qur’an states that women are subservient to men.

There have been many cases where western women have been brutally gang raped by a number of men, and little or nothing is done by the authorities to capture and punish the offenders in these countries.

LIKE HELL! And Look Where It Got Us!

LIKE HELL! And Look Where It Got Us!

Since Tony Blair opened the floodgates to any and every Muslim who wanted to come to Britain, the entire disgraceful practice has moved here along with them. Young girls and women no longer feel completely safe on the streets of our country, and this is borne out by the rapid rise in the number of rapes in Britain over the last twenty years.

Of course, rape is not the only thing for children and young women in Britain to fear, for there is also the possibility of sexual exploitation by these gangs as stated by Professor Jay.

The South Yorkshire Police have come under heavy criticism for failing to apprehend rape suspects and child groomers, and for the most part have done very little to curb the this rampant crime.

Sue Police

Mohsin Khan

Mohsin Khan

One such person arrested and sentenced to four years in 2010 was the Pakistani paedophile Mohsin Khan who groomed a thirteen year old girl before violently assaulting her. He is now free and walks the streets of Rotherham. The big question is, why was he not deported? The fact that he was born here should not be taken into consideration in light of his crimes.

Any first or second generation  immigrant who commits serious crimes in the U.K. should be deported at the end of their sentence. We have to show these people that they will be accepted providing they respect our laws and culture, but if they refuse they get shipped out!

The Afghanistan Comedy

Posted in Afghanistan, America, Britain, European Union, Islamic Revolution, News, Pakistan, Politics, Taliban, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 28/12/2014 by floroy1942

Today (28/12/2014) the NATO presence in Afghanistan has finally come to an end with some outrageous claims being made during the low-key ceremony held in Kabul.

General John Campbell, the U.S. NATO commander

General John Campbell, the U.S. NATO commander

General John Campbell, the U.S. NATO commander, said in his speech, “Together we have lifted the Afghan people out of the darkness of despair and given them hope for the future. I hope you take great pride in the positive impact you’ve made and will continue to make upon the Afghan people,” He told the gathered troops, “You’ve made Afghanistan stronger and our countries safer.” Seldom have I heard such a load of sanctimonious bullshit!

The event itself was even held in secret for fear of a Taliban attack on the ceremony, so how the hell can they have “made Afghanistan stronger?”

American Casualties

American Casualties

Ever since the war started in 2001 the ISAF has suffered 3,485 deaths, and that’s just the Americans! The British have also lost 453. Additionally, there have been 93 fatalities among troops from the non-NATO contributors to the coalition, Georgia, Australia, Sweden, New Zealand, Finland, Jordan, South Korea and Albania.

Afghan Caualties

Afghan Casualties

The biggest casualties are among the Afghan people, for the war has cost an estimated 174,000 civilian deaths. The annual figures rose to a new high during 2014, with a total of 3,188 deaths in the first ten months of the year. The Afghan Police too suffered heavily in the last year with an estimated 4,600 deaths over the same period.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid said, “The US and NATO mission was an absolute failure as today’s ceremony shows. They are fleeing from Afghanistan. They have not reached their goals in defeating the Afghan mujahideen, but they are keeping some forces here to reach their vicious aims.”

Taliban

Taliban

Admittedly, since ISAF went into Afghanistan the Taliban have had their wings clipped, but after 13 years of war they are still a potent fighting force that in my view, may well end up controlling the country again within a couple of years.

At the ceremony, control was officially handed over to the Afghan Forces which number around 350,000, but as we have seen in Iraq, numbers don’t say very much. Who is to say we will not see the Afghan soldiers running away every time the Taliban attack?

So far as the NATO Forces involvement is concerned, the whole exercise has basically been for nothing, for not much has really changed in Afghanistan.

British Soldiers On the Battlefront

British Soldiers On the Battlefront

Had ISAF gone into the country in 2001 with the express purpose of destroying the Taliban totally, the war would have been over in half the time and the Afghan people would now be safe. As it is, not a lot has been achieved.

I believe the commanders made half-hearted, uncoördinated attacks against the Taliban which in effect achieved very little, for they are still a strong and effective force within the country. Now they are just waiting for the bulk of the foreign forces to leave before making their attempt to take over again.

The Afghan Army is in my view not a force that can be relied on, which does not bode well for the country’s future. But I hope I am wrong, for the sake of the Afghan people.

Pakistani Troops Fight The Taliban In The NW Province

Pakistani Troops Fight The Taliban In The NW Province

When the Americans and British made their sweep of the southern provinces a couple of years back in an effort to wipe out the Taliban forces, they were stupid enough to leave the back door open i.e. the border with Pakistan. As you would expect, the militants just crossed over until the troops left and then came back. Some months later the Pakistan Army made a half-hearted attempt to clear their North-West Provinces on the border and the reverse happened.

It makes basic common sense to me that if the two attacks had been coordinated to occur at the same time, the Taliban would have had nowhere to hide and the whole action could have resulted in a major victory. As it is, the whole exercise was a waste of time.

Afghan Army - We Have Yet To See if They Can Fight

Afghan Army – We Have Yet To See if They Can Fight

What saddens me the most is that all the casualties incurred during the war were basically for nothing, because little has been achieved. Now the troops are coming home, leaving a few behind to act as instructors to the Afghan Army. An Army which has yet to prove it has the guts to fight and win against the Taliban.
