So much is being said about young Muslims wanting to go to Syria to fight for Islamic State (I.S.) that the situation is beginning to get farcical. There is talk of the government being responsible for not stopping these idealistic idiots, and not to mention the Police. But why is everyone making such a fuss?

The simple answer is to let them go, take away their passports and refuse them re-entry into the country. Problem solved! It is not necessary for the Security Departments, Police or government to spend millions of pounds tracking down these poor deluded fools and stopping them from leaving. If they are really intent on going they will find a way.

It has annoyed me in recent weeks to hear the parents of these runaways bleating that it is the government’s fault they have run away. The only people responsible are themselves, the parents, for not bringing up their children properly.

The only other people who could be held responsible are the clerics in the Mosques who preach Jihad and turn these idiots into potential terrorists, and the I.S. websites.

If the government really want to do something useful, they should deport the radical clerics and have the Security Departments find and block the I.S. websites that are persuading these young people to join them. A joint effort by all E.U. Nations to shut down these websites will go a long way to killing the I.S. recruitment programme.

Europe is currently in danger of terrorist attack when these people eventually come home. For many, if not all, will have been radicalized to the extent where they could carry out attacks on their ‘home’ soil. To avoid this they must not be allowed back in.

The Headlines

Whichever way you look at it, and no matter what the Press and politicians say, I.S. is steadily spreading its influence far and wide. It began in Iraq but has now spread to countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, i.e. Libya and Tunisia and there are elements in other North African countries too like Morocco. I.S. is also reaching out to African countries further south like Nigeria. Boko Haram’s recent pledge of allegiance to I.S. is evidence of that.

We may be fighting them in Iraq and Syria, but their influence is still spreading like wildfire. It begins with small-scale eruptions here and there like in Libya and Tunisia but when they have enough recruits from the local populace it will erupt in open warfare.

The one thing we can all be sure of is that if they do take over North Africa, Europe will be next! There are more than enough Muslims living among us to ensure that I.S. will have all the support it needs. Once they have Europe you can bet that America will be next. I am glad I will not be around to see it, but I just hope our politicians wake up in time to recognise the danger.

No Hable Espanol!

Now that I live in Spain, one of my top priorities is to learn the Spanish language. I had intended to start at a state run academy this month, but as I have to go back to my old stamping ground for an operation, it has been put on hold.

This makes it all the more annoying when I get redirected to the Spanish version of a web site while surfing the net. I try where possible to put my location as the UK, because then at least I get the pages in English. But sometimes that doesn’t work and I still get directed to the .es site automatically. This is very frustrating!

Admittedly, some web pages think of people like me, and put a language selection menu on the page which is handy. What a pity all do not have this foresight.

One of the worst problems is buying stuff on-line. I have for example, I-Tunes on my computer, but when I go to the Shop, I must go to the German page because I have a German credit card. I even had to give my old employers address in Germany just so I could buy music or whatever from Apple. You can’t live in one country and have a credit card or bank account from another? Isn’t it ridiculous?

We have now a global economy, with people moving from one country to another to find work, or some other reason, but this doesn’t seem to get through to the web. How many Poles are living in Western Europe? How many Turks live in Europe? How many Middle East people have moved into Europe? The list is endless, and yet the Internet does not support this migration to the extent it should. It is time company’s ensure their websites reflect the needs of people who no longer live in their countries of origin.

I am sure a Polish person living and working in France would love to view pages of interest to him in his own language, no matter how good he speaks french. To do this he must go to a Polish site, only to find himself redirected to the french site because that is where his computer is!!!

The only web company that has done something useful in this area is Google with its translation tool featured on their pages. A very handy tool that I have made use of frequently.

Web Page designers must be made aware of this shortfall in their product, and the best way to do that is for everybody to send e-mails to the Help Section of the page being viewed. Maybe then they will listen. Miracles do happen!

May tomorrow be better for you than today

Roy.
