Paris Hit Once Again

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Germany, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, News, Police, Religion, Terrorists with tags , , , , on 21/04/2017 by floroy1942

Paris Attack

Paris has once again been hit by a terrorist outrage, but who will be next? It seems to me that the government and the police in many countries are not doing their job properly. It was said on the news that the perpetrator was known to the police, and this is not the first time, but they did nothing about it, and now a person is dead and three others wounded.

It seems to me that the police, who knew this person was a radical, should have stepped in and done something once they found out what he was. Why does someone have to die before the police take action against these people? It is no good saying that the law does not allow this, for if necessary they need to be changed. New laws should be passed to cover this situation.

If the authorities know that someone has been radicalized they should either deport him or put him in prison where he can do no harm. Some will argue that everyone has a right to an opinion, but that should not include terrorist radicalism. These people are dangerous and often take the lives of innocent people and if it is to stop, then the police and authorities have to be much tougher with them.

Across Europe, and I include Britain in this, there are known immigrants who have been radicalized by Islāmic State and have been persuaded to carry out atrocities. It has been proven on many accounts, but the authorities do nothing to stop this until an act of terror is inflicted on the people.

All countries in Europe have to be much tougher on these people otherwise, all hell will break loose. The police and the authorities know of many immigrants who have allied with Islāmic State or been radicalized by them, and once this is known they should step in and remove the threat.

You cannot wait until an atrocity has been carried out before you act, otherwise Europe will become a battleground.

With the huge influx of Islāmic State fighters who have infiltrated Europe as refugees we can without a doubt expect many more such attacks, and in my view the governments must get on top of this. Otherwise there will be many more atrocities in cities across Europe. The only way to stamp out this threat is for governments to come down hard on these people.

The writing was on the wall when you saw pictures of migrants from Iraq and other places over the last eighteen months. You only have to see the photographs taken of the migrants entering Europe to notice that two-thirds of them were unaccompanied men between eighteen and twenty-five. How many of them were from Islāmic State? It is known that there are several thousand Islāmic State terrorists in Europe, and they are busy persuading ethnic European migrants to commit atrocities. This has been proven by the attacks that have taken place over the last eighteen months.

Once ISIL has been defeated in Iraq many more will come here and the terror will spread. They are losing on the battlefield in Iraq so for them it is common sense to move to Europe where immigrants are welcomed with open arms. When that happens we will see many more attacks on innocent people. Lets hope that the governments of Europe have the guts to nip this in the bud!

Why Is The U.N. Not Fulfilling Its Mandate!

Removing The Bodies In Ivory Coast

Removing The Bodies In Ivory Coast

The latest terrible attack in Turkey, and the killing of holiday makers in Ivory Coast reinforces my belief that the United Nations, instead of sitting on its fat arse doing nothing, should step in to solve this terrorism threat to the world.

When you consider that it was formed to ensure world peace, ever since the Korean War in 1950 it has done nothing to solve the world’s problems. Now, since the rise of terrorism, all it has managed to do is verbally ‘condemn‘ the actions of these radicals who enjoy killing so much.

These terrorists are nothing more than religious fanatics who think that one day they will rule the world. The rest of us know this will never happen, but in the meantime they are killing tens of thousands of people in many countries.

Considering that the number one mandate of the United Nations is to eradicate war, you would imagine that this body of people would step in and do something to end the violence. But no! they just sit on their fat behinds and talk, talk, talk before verbally ‘condemning’ the actions of these vile people.

Meanwhile people across the world are being slaughtered and tortured, with women being forced into sex slavery for these maniacs. It has to stop!

Terror Once Again In Ankara

Terror Once Again In Ankara

It is a fact that the majority of the victims of these killers are their own people, but it brings home to the rest of us what animals they are when they attack places like Paris, Ankara and holiday destinations like Africa. Of one thing you can be sure, it is far from over, for Islāmic State have already made clear that a series of attacks will take place in Europe in the near future.

Angela Merkel’s insane invitation to immigrants to come and live in Germany has already ensured that there are literally thousands of I.S. fighters who have crossed the Mediterranean among the refugees, and are now busy getting themselves organized for some major attacks. It is only a matter of time before they strike. Once they are here it is very difficult to find and arrest them before they can do some harm, but we must try.

The U.N. should get together an international force and go to any country where these bastards live and wipe them out to a man. There is no need to interfere in that country’s politics, just go in, do the job and leave.

U.N. Mandate

U.N. Mandate

Currently there are Islamic terrorists in  139 countries across the world. We do not get to hear of most atrocities because the main Press attention is fixed on the victims of Islamic State and other Middle East groups.

The world just cannot go on like this, otherwise we will end up in a world war with almost every nation involved as they all battle with these radicals on their own soil. There has to be some concerted action coming from somewhere, and it is up to the nations of the world to come together at the U.N. and unite against these despicable people. It they do not, it will continue for years and years and eventually millions will die.

Paris Climate Conference – COP 21

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, Conservation, Environment, Europe, Insanity, Nature, News, Oceans with tags , , , , on 29/11/2015 by floroy1942

Next week sees the next round of international climate conferences in Paris and many people are wondering what agreements are going to be reached. What is just as is important is how effective the agreements will be. Will governments live up to the actions they have agreed to take, or will it be just like all the previous conferences where everything is forgotten after the doors close behind them?

Some People Just Do Not Believe What Is Staring Them In The Face

Some People Just Do Not Believe What Is Staring Them In The Face

I have a tendency to believe in the latter, for up until now not much has been done about the major threat of climate change despite all the agreements reached in the past. The evidence for urgent action is happening every day, and yet most people just ignore it or simply do not believe it.

Major hurricanes/typhoons, flooding and drought all across the world are indications that things are changing rapidly, and it is up to mankind to make the necessary alterations in the way we live otherwise they will escalate, and life on Earth will become precarious indeed.

Polar Ice Cap Loss

Just One Example – Polar Ice Cap Loss

Most people scoff at the idea of climate change because they do not know how the climate behaved 50-60 years ago, and they have nothing to compare todays weather patterns with. Those of us who are old remember clearly the mild weather patterns of the 1950’s and 60’s when for example, hurricanes were totally unheard of in Britain. You cannot say that now. We old ‘uns remember when we never had major flooding, and long periods of drought like we do now in Britain. I can say much the same about the United States.

It is only when you have the real knowledge of what our weather patterns were so long ago that you begin to realize how much it has changed in the last thirty-odd years. Looking around at what is happening in the world at the moment I find it hard to believe that most people just do not see what is going on.

Too Many Cars

Too Many Cars

I can well understand the young people today who decry the very idea of climate change, because what we experience today is all they have known since they were born, but that does not mean they should not listen to those who have experienced better times.

Most governments are crying out about capping global temperature increases to just 2 degrees celsius but none of them are taking any concrete steps to make this happen.  But there will surely come a time when they realize the mistake they have made, but sadly, it may well be too late by then.

Loss Of A Major Asset

Loss Of A Major Asset

We still have the coal-burning factories, more than a billion cars on the road worldwide all contaminating the air we breath. We are still contaminating our farmland and waterways with chemicals to grow food, while at the same time decimating the world’s great forests like the Amazon which provide us with so much oxygen. We are also doing irreparable harm to our oceans with over fishing and plastic contamination. I have to admit, it makes me shudder to think what the world will be like for our children, and in particular, our grand and great-grandchildren.

Loss Of A Major Asset

Loss Of A Major Asset

It is indeed sad that people today are so self-centred, they do not give a single thought to what their children and children’s children will have to put up with in the future. It’s all about themselves and what they can get out of life, and sod tomorrow!

It is true that the world’s governments can only do so much in avoiding major changes in world weather, a lot of it has to come from the people themselves. We the people have to begin working together to drastically reduce the effects of global warming wherever we can, for if we don’t, future generations will pay a heavy price.

After The Paris Attacks, Who’s Next?

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Immigrants, Islamic State, Muslim, News, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , , on 15/11/2015 by floroy1942

ISIS MapLike everyone else I was shocked and appalled to hear about the savage attacks in Paris this week, but to be honest I was not surprised. It has been known for many weeks that ISIS terrorists have been entering the European mainland disguised as refugees, and it was only a matter of time before an attack took place.

The big question is where will they strike next, for there are sure to be many more attacks. Will it be France again, London, Amsterdam, Brussels? Who knows. The only thing I am sure of is that it will happen again and again until ISIS is defeated. Now they have established themselves on mainland Europe, and with our open-border policy, they can go wherever they please and cross borders without hinderance.

I find it extremely naive of our politicians not to imagine that something like this would happen and take steps to prevent it. Considering the swarms of ‘refugees’ flooding into Europe this year, and the total chaos that surrounded their entry, it is no wonder that several thousand ISIS fighters have entered Europe disguised as refugees.

Muslim 'Refugees'

Muslim ‘Refugees’

You only have to look at photographs and news film of these people to realize that for every family there are perhaps ten young single males among them.  Did these young men leave their parents, wives and children to continue suffering under the terror regimes just to ensure they themselves are safe from harm? Or have they come as members of ISIS?

Proper checks on the country of origin of these people has become impossible due to the numbers flooding in. They all say they are from Syria because they think that will get them accepted here, but according to official figures only about a third are actually from Syria. The rest are all economic refugees from many countries who are taking advantage of Angela Merkel’s thoughtless open invitation.

This year alone the numbers will top one million, but between now and the beginning of 2017 we can expect a further two million according to experts. Unless we close our borders they will keep on coming until we have more than half the population of Syria and Iraq living here.

What is important to remember is that many of these ‘refugees’ will be members of ISIS bent on bringing death and destruction to Europe. With our current inability to properly screen these people we are showing ISIS an open door with a big welcome mat.

So Easily Persuaded

So Easily Persuaded

Many of them are no doubt busy converting those who have lived in Europe for years into suicide bombers, and training young men in terrorist tactics. We already know that two of the attackers in Paris were between the ages of fifteen and eighteen and EU residents, so it has already begun.

There can be little doubt that opening the door to all and sundry who wish to come here is the biggest mistake in European history since the Second World War, and we will pay dearly for it. It is one thing to fight terrorism in another country, but much more dangerous when you must do it in your own backyard.

There are in excess of forty-four million Muslims living in Europe, which represents about 6% of the total European population, and although most would never be persuaded by ISIS to attack us, there are many who would, especially among the Muslim youth.

Muslim Population Figures

Muslim Population Figures

Just to give you some idea of the heavily Muslim populated cities across Europe: In Malmo Sweden, 20%, Brussels Belgium 25.5%, Rotterdam Holland 25%, Marseille France 35%, Cologne Germany 12%, Bradford UK 32.4%, Birmingham UK 26.9%. These are actual figures for the percentage of Muslims living in our towns and cities across Europe. Whichever way you look at it, these are very fertile recruitment grounds for ISIS.

ISIS Killer - Is This What We Want To See In Europe?

ISIS Child Killer – Is This What We Want To See In Europe?

If drastic action is not taken by the European governments to stop this within a short time, and to halt the flow of ‘refugees’, we will all be in big trouble at some time in the very near future. If ISIS manage to persuade even five percent to take up arms against the European population in order to make the continent completely Muslim, it will be a blood bath.

United Nations Farce

United Nations Farce

I am just wondering how long the world will have to wait before the United Nations gets its act together and forms an International Military Force to attack and wipe out all traces of Muslim insurrection across the planet and put an end to this tragedy.

If I Hear The Word ‘Condemn’ One More Time….

Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa

I don’t know about you, but I am sick of hearing politicians world-wide ‘condemn’ acts of terrorism but doing nothing to stop them. Now after the tragic murder of the Japanese reporters  Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa by Islamic State (IS), once again they are trotting along to the nearest microphone to ‘condemn’ this latest atrocity. Despite the disturbing reason for this, it is almost becoming a game in modern politics to see who will win the race to the microphone.

I.S. Leader - Does He Look Impressed That  Politicians Condemn His Actions?

I.S. Leader – Does He Look Impressed That Politicians Condemn His Actions?

Do these idiots really imagine that religious fanatics like I.S., Boko Haram, al Quada and all the rest of these killers are the slightest bit interested that they ‘condemn’ their acts of barbarism? For more than a decade the world has had to put up with terrorist groups killing innocent people in this Muslim ‘Holy War’ and still no-one has had the guts to stand up and say: Enough is enough!

Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram Leader - He Doesn't Look Impressed Either!

Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram Leader – He Doesn’t Look Impressed Either!

After all the excesses of Boko Haram in Africa at least now the African Union is talking about coming together to do something positive about this group by forming a multi-national fighting force to go in and destroy them. I await the results.

The sad thing is, this should have happened when the true colours of this group became known. The same can be said for others like I.S., al Quada and the Taliban.

I believe part of the trouble is that people and governments all across the world have become so hardened to terrorism after all these years, that so long as it happens to other people in another country it is nothing more than a news item.  It is however a lot different when it happens in your own country as we saw in Paris a couple of weeks ago.

Victims Of The Baga Attack

Victims Of The Baga Attack

But did anyone in Paris and across the world think for a moment about the 2,000 Nigerians killed in the town of Baga in a senseless slaughter by Boko Haram during the same period. Not One! All eyes were on Paris because that one hit home.

Many nations across the world have suffered at the hands of these religious fanatics who seem to think that Islam will rule the world and are determined to do whatever is necessary to achieve this goal. The sheer barbarism of these people has been highlighted often enough during the public displays of I.S. when they beheaded people on world-wide television.

I have to ask (yet again) how long does the world plan to stand by and put up with these atrocities before someone decides that we must do something positive to stop this senseless bloodshed?

In previous posts I have asked why the United Nations is not taking action to stop this outrage. Is it not time these politicians got off their fat backsides and did something positive for world peace?

The Aims Of The United Nations - Some Joke!

The Aims Of The United Nations – Some Joke!

 I am sure that if just one man had the balls to stand before the council and ask for volunteers from all nations to come together and strike at these people there would be volunteers enough.

There are some 27 countries world-wide that have, or are suffering attacks by Muslim extremists, and there have been 48 major terror attacks across the world from New York to the Philippines in the last twenty years.

Its not enough to say “Oh, it’s an Arab problem” and leave it at that, because now even Middle East countries are beginning to feel threatened by these terrorists. The I.S. leader has already been quoted as saying that attacks should begin in Saudi Arabia.

There will come a time when the whole Middle East will be embroiled in civil war if these people are allowed to continue. I am sure everyone will realize the grave danger of such a thing happening.

If You Are Not Going To Use Them For The Benefit Of The World Why Have Them?

If You Are Not Going To Use Them For The Benefit Of The World Why Have Them?

There can be little doubt that terrorism has become a world problem, and as such it must be dealt with by a coming together of military forces from all countries to defeat it before it gets any further. To continue ignoring the threat will only result in chaos, death and eventual subjugation of the people, for it is clear that groups such as I.S., Boko Haram etc. will not be satisfied once they achieve their goal of forming a Muslim state under their control, but will wish to spread outwards.

Rest assured that all countries ignore this threat at their peril, for it will not stop until all terrorist groups have been annihilated.

Mick & Paddy were walking home from the pub. Mick says to Paddy, “I can’t be bothered to walk al dat way.” “Me either,” says Paddy, “but we got no money for a cab, and we missed the last bus.” Mick suggests, “We could steal a bus from the Depot.”

They arrive at the Bus Depot and Mick tells Paddy to go get a bus while he keeps lookout. After shuffling around for ages Mick shouts, “Paddy what are you doin, have you found one yet?” Paddy shouts back, “I cant find a No 91.? “Oh bejeesus ye thick sod ~ take a No 14 and we’ll walk from the roundabout.”

A hooded armed robber bursts into the Bank of Italy and forces the tellers to load a sack full of cash. On his way out the door with the loot, one brave customer grabs the robber’s hood and pulls it off, revealing the robber’s face. The robber shoots the guy dead without hesitation!

He then looks around the bank to see if anyone else has seen him. He sees one of the tellers looking straight at him. The robber walks over and calmly shoots him dead. Everyone by now is very scared and looking down at the floor. “Dida anyone elsa seea my face?” calls the robber.There follows a tense minute of silence. An elderly Italian gentleman, tentatively raises his hand and says, “I thinka my wife caught a glimpse.”

 Boss to Blonde: “If I gave you $5 Million minus 10%, how much will you take off?” Blonde: “Everything Sir … shoes, dress, bra, panties … absolutely flippin’ everything!”

 An Emergency Call Centre worker in London, England, has been sacked, much to the dismay of her colleagues who are reportedly unhappy with her dismissal.It seems a male caller dialled 999 from a mobile phone stating, “I am depressed and lying here on a railway line. I am waiting for the train to come so that I can finally meet Allah.” “Remain calm and stay on the line,” was not considered to be an appropriate response.

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.

Schengen Countries

Schengen Countries

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?

Area Of al Quada Operations

Area Of al Quada Operations

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.

I.S. Foreign Fighters

I.S. Foreign Fighters

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.

Forget Africa! Paris Is More Important?

The recent events in Paris have hit the headlines world-wide and caused mass outrage, but compared to what happened in Africa during the last few days, that event is minuscule.

Thousands Gather In Solidarity With Charlie Hebdo

Thousands Gather In Solidarity With Charlie Hebdo

In Paris seventeen people were killed during the terrorist action and that is terrible, but what if I tell you that an estimated 2,000 died in a Boko Haram atrocity in Nigeria last week.

The most shocking thing about the Nigerian incident is that it never hit the headlines, or even got mentioned in the press as all eyes turned to Paris, but there again, it was in Africa and it seems few people care what happens there! As tens of thousands of people gather for today’s Paris march, I’ll bet none of them even know about the massive loss of life in Nigeria.

Je Suis Charlie

Je Suis Charlie

I do not mean to belittle what happened in Paris for it was without doubt an outrage against good people, but we prefer to concentrate on the killing of a mere 17 people in Paris and do nothing about the thousands who died in Nigeria from this single terrorist attack. But there again, it’s only Africa!

The most horrifying part about the whole episode, is that the majority of victims were women, children and old people who could do nothing to defend themselves.

Murdered By Boko Haram

2,000 Murdered Indiscriminately By Boko Haram

It began on January 3rd when Boko Haram attacked and took over a military base in the north-east of Nigeria. From there they headed for the town of Baga and continued on into all the surrounding villages shooting indiscriminately as they went. The people ran in terror into the bush but were followed by the Boko Haram fighters. The entire area is littered with corpses and the definitive death toll will not be known for some time.

“The human carnage perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists in Baga was enormous,” Muhammad Abba Gava, a spokesman for the poorly armed civilians of a defence group that fights Boko Haram. He added,  “No one could attend to the corpses and even the seriously injured ones who may have died by now.”

According to Amnesty International, reports from the town estimated that as many as 2,000 people were killed in this single attack. Daniel Eyre, Nigeria researcher for Amnesty International said, “This marks a disturbing and bloody escalation of Boko Haram’s ongoing onslaught,”

download (1)It is said that around 10,000 people were killed by the insurgents last year and this latest action is an indication that just as many, if not more, could be part of the body count by the end of 2015.

The really sad thing about this is that the Nigerian government seem completely unable to take the fight to the insurgents who rampage far and wide as they please. The Nigerian Army complains they do not have enough weapons or even ammunition to take on the terrorists, and are therefore all but powerless to stop them. It is clear the Nigerian Government does not have either the will or the means to stop them either.

These Islamic terrorists are on a killing spree, and not only is no-one doing anything to stop them, but there is no condemnation from other Muslims as we have witnessed for the attack in Paris.

Muslim Leaders Condemn Paris Attack

Muslim Leaders Condemn Paris Attack

Considering the number of Arab countries, institutions and people who have roundly condemned the high-profile Paris attack, nothing has been said by these same people against groups like Boko Haram committing genocide. Rather strange don’t you think!

Currently, Africa has the Ebola crisis and this merciless terror group, but the countries of the world are taking little or no notice of either. After all, it’s only Africa!

Ebola Crisis

Ebola Crisis

It is true that some concerned nations are helping with the Ebola crisis but there is no unilateral action in which all countries participate to relieve the suffering of the these people. There has certainly been no assistance in Nigeria to battle the terror of Boko Haram! So the people continue to die, but let’s face it, it’s only Africa.

As I have said before, and will continue to say, it is time for the United Nations to get off its fat backside and offer help to Africa in ridding it of the Ebola plague and groups like Boko Haram. An international effort sponsored by the U.N. could have ended the Ebola outbreak months ago but still volunteers from a few nations are struggling to cope. As for the insurgents, all voices have been silent on that score.

United Nations Fighting Force

United Nations Fighting Force

What is wrong with the U.N. getting together an international force to go into Nigeria and wipe out these terrorists once and for all? Don’t bother arresting and putting them on trial, just kill them all where they stand until there is not one of them left.

A united world front against these terrorists would send a strong message to the likes of al Quada and Islamic State that we, the people of the world, will not stand for their terror tactics.

If such a thing happened in Europe, the United States, or any other western nation there would be an immediate military response, but no, here it’s not necessary because its only Africa, and that’s very sad.

Oh How Blind Are Those That Cannot See!

Posted in Britain, Children, Equality, Gaza and Hamas, Human Rights, Israel, Netanyahu, News, Palestine, United Nations with tags , , , , on 21/07/2014 by floroy1942

With such a title I could be writing about almost anything, but today I concern myself with the farce that is the current Gaza conflict. I did write about this recently but now the pace has stepped up to bordering the ridiculous. I say this because there are many, like those causing the recent riots in Paris, who just cannot see the wood for the trees as they saying goes.

Paris Riots In Support Of Palestine

Paris Riots In Support Of Palestine

Once again the masses are wailing about all those killed in Gaza with the news programmes emphasising the number of civilians, and especially children, who are killed by Israeli gunfire. Scant mention of the Israeli casualties, and after this hypocrisy we have now had two large demonstrations on the streets of Paris that turned into riots, protesting at the Gaza casualties.

As you would expect, all the hatred is being directed at the Israeli Army and government for their “brutal” slaughter of ‘innocent’ Palestinian civilians. To these small-minded people Israel should ignore the more than a thousand rockets that have been fired at Israeli cities and towns by Hamas and continue life as normal.

Deadly Hit On Sderot Israel

Deadly Hit On Sderot Israel

To all those deaf, dumb and blind people who demonstrated in Paris, let me ask one question: What would you expect your government to do, if say Germany started raining rockets down on Paris and its suburbs? Oh that’s alright, lets just choose to ignore them! Yea right! Pull the other leg its got bells on! Everyone would be up in arms screaming for retaliation. So that means its alright for you to retaliate but not Israel?

There is one simple way for Hamas to stop the Israeli offensive, and that is: Stop firing rockets at Israeli cities and towns! 

Palestinian Casualty

It is obvious that Hamas has no intention of doing this because they are getting exactly what they want from those among us who do not have the capacity to think straight – anti-Israeli rhetoric at the mounting civilian casualties! The more civilians killed the more it plays into their hands, for they get the sympathy while Israel gets all the hatred. Its an old story that has been repeated several times during the last two decades. Only when they run out of rockets will they be happy to negotiate a ceasefire. Until that time the civilian casualties among their own people are a huge propaganda victory for them.

Why else do you think they always fire their rockets from inside built-up areas and not the open countryside? They know that Israel can pinpoint the firing location and will come in with helicopters and or artillery to sanitize the area. That way they get the maximum number of civilian casualties and can blame the heartless Israeli regime.

Hamas even had the gall to attempt a humanitarian ceasefire to which the Israeli’s agreed, and then they promptly broke it by firing more rockets! Their callous attempt to put the blame on Israel for this is beneath contempt, but not many people picked up on it, and henceforth, more hatred against Israel.

The Israeli government dropped leaflets to the Palestinian people warning them to vacate the areas of the city they were going to bombard in an effort to reduce casualties but that did not suit Hamas. They wanted as many casualties as possible to make it look good in the world’s news programmes so they ordered the people to stay, knowing what the Israeli Army was planning. So don’t play into the hands of Hamas and blindly blame the Israeli’s.

Hamas Human Shield

One thing the simple-minded among us have to understand is that Hamas are past masters at gaining the sympathy of the world when civilians are killed. So far as Hamas are concerned, they don’t give a damn for all the Palestinians killed, the more the merrier because it strengthens their cause. It was Hamas who started using human shields a decade ago, not Israel.

The Hamas leader has demanded the release of terrorist prisoners and an end to the Israeli blockade of their borders, but regarding the blockade, you have to go back a few years to understand why this is in place.

Hamas Smuggling Tunnel

Hamas Smuggling Tunnel

It is there for one reason only, to stop the flow of arms into Gaza by Hamas. Before the blockade all sorts of arms and ammunition were flowing into Gaza at a steady rate, but since the blockade the only method open to them is the smuggling tunnels, of which there are many. For Israel to once again open the borders would mean unfettered access by Hamas to all the arms and ammunition they need, plus of course the rockets supplied by Iran.

All this being said, the Palestinian people can end this themselves by demanding a change of government. Hamas was after all a terrorist organization when they were voted in. If the people of Gaza want peace then they should demand elections and remove these terrorists who pose as a government. It is up to the people to demand a halt to all military actions in Gaza and come to the negotiating table without an AK47 in their hands. Only in this way will Gaza be free of war.

Many of you may think that I am either an Israeli or at least sympathize with them, well you couldn’t be more wrong. I categorically do not.

Israel Growth Over The Years

Israel Growth Over The Years

On the Israeli side they have made a huge mistake by building on Palestinian land that is not rightfully theirs. Should this continue the war will never end. Israel must pull back to the lines drawn by the United Nations in 1967 and hand over the land they stole. Only then can peace be attained. Will it ever happen? Not in my lifetime!

The Rich and Powerful Never Go To Jail!

Posted in Europe, Justice, President, Prison with tags , , , , , on 16/12/2011 by floroy1942

Jacques Chirac the former French President has finally been found guilty of corruption, but guess what, he won’t go to jail. Unlike you or I, rich and powerful men invariably do not spend time behind bars for their crimes but get a ‘suspended sentence’. Now aint’ that just dandy!

Guilty!

His supporters will firstly insist that he is innocent, but if they go so far as to accept the court ruling, they will say he cannot go to jail because of his health. Justice used to be blind and totally impartial, but that idea is obviously ‘old hat’.  These days it seems that if you are rich or powerful enough you can get away with murder in the democratic West.

In 2004 Alain Juppe was convicted in the same case and sentenced to a 14 month suspended sentence and banned from holding office for a year. He is now Foreign Minister and may even become Prime Minister if his Party regains power.

Chirac as Mayor of Paris

The whole thing dates back to the early 90’s when Chirac was Mayor of Paris. He is charged with various crimes of corruption. During the trial it came out that he had embezzled €1.4 million from the Paris Council to pay ‘salaries’ to friends who held a fictitious job within the council. He was given leave by the court not to attend during most of the trial for reasons of ill-health, namely dementia and failing memory. It is because of his ‘ill health’ that he will not be appealing the court decision.

During his time as French President (1995-2007) he had immunity from prosecution as head of state, but all that changed when Sarkozy became President. He now has the distinction of being the first French head of state to be tried since 1945 when France put the Nazi collaborator Marshall Petain on trial.

The outcome of this trial is really a farce, for it proves once again that if you are rich enough, or powerful enough, you will never go to jail in a democracy. Pity us poor minnows in the pond, for while the sharks play, the minnows pay!!!
