policy on Islamic State? Clueless at best - spineless at worst. hard hitting littlejohn. good read

Here in Britain, like most of Europe, there still doesn’t appear to be the political will to confront the terrorist threat head on, for fear of being accused of ‘Islamophobia’.

Incredibly, there are still dunderheads like Pixie Balls-Cooper who think we should open our doors to unlimited numbers of ‘refugees’ from North Africa, the All you need to know is that before the first shots were fired on Friday, world leaders were preparing to attend a grandiose summit, not to co-ordinate plans to fight terrorism, but to address what they claimed was the greatest threat to mankind — non-existent global warming. Middle East and Afghanistan.

That’s just a small taste of what Richard Littlejohn has to say in the following article.  As is usual for him, he gets it right.
And he says it all very well, so I’ll shut up as I can’t add anything to this. No need to, as he’s done the work.  Read on.


Our policy on Islamic State? Clueless at best - spineless at worst

By Richard Littlejohn for the Daily Mail

Right up until the first explosion outside the Stade de France on Friday, the world leaders heading for the G20 summit in Turkey were still pretending that the greatest threat to the world was climate change.
At least this time we’ve been spared the absurd Hokey Cokey-style show of solidarity we saw after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris in January.
How the jihadis must have laughed at that sentimental display of impotence by those who regard themselves as the most powerful men and women on Earth. All it had taken to bring them together in one place was a handful of terrorists armed with automatic rifles.

Last weekend’s shocking carnage was Charlie Hebdo writ large, with a bigger body count and another bout of empty rhetoric from elected Western politicians struck blind by the muzzle flash.
Once again their predictable reaction has been to put on their solemn faces, repeat the tired mantra that the terrorists will never win and insist this latest bloodbath has ‘nothing to do with Islam’.
As if to reassure us, a Muslim shopkeeper in Luton displayed a ‘Not In My Name’ poster condemning the Paris attacks.
Unfortunately, a ‘vast minority’ of his co-religionists disagree with him.

Just up the road from Luton, in Bedford, hundreds of ‘peace-loving’ Muslims were meeting to plan their next move towards turning Britain into a Sharia state.

Most of the usual suspects were there, including the BBC’s favourite Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg, fresh from his arrest on Syria-related terrorism charges, which were subsequently dropped, and other representatives of the ‘charity’ CAGE, which described the recently evaporated Izal beheading specialist Jihadi John as a ‘beautiful young man’.

No doubt all the speakers were at pains to stay within the law, but can you imagine an extreme anti-Islam organisation being allowed to stage a rally at Bedford Corn Exchange?
Precisely.
If such an event had gone ahead, it would have been raided by armed police and the speakers charged with an assortment of exciting new ‘hate’ crimes. Call Me Dave’s steadfast response to the Charlie Hebdo murders was a headlong rush to make ‘Islamophobia’ a specific criminal offence. So much for all the ‘Je Suis Charlie’ posturing about freedom of speech.

If a British editor republished those cartoons of The Prophet, he’d have been arrested for inciting hatred. It’s a classic indication of the Government’s schizophrenia when it comes to dealing with Islamist jihad.
Despite lobbing a few bombs in the direction of Islamic State (aka, Izal), the West’s policy towards militant Islam is clueless at best and spineless at worst.

President Obama even dismissed Izal as a ‘junior varsity’ team, barely worth a second glance just so long as they confined their medieval barbarity to their own borders.
Well, now Izal’s gone global. In the past fortnight it has carried out or inspired a number of atrocities, including blowing up a Russian holiday jet and targeting civilians in Paris. Will Paris be the tipping-point which leads to a grand coalition, including Russia and the United States, being assembled to wipe Izal off the face of the Earth? Probably not.

And even if the world does get its act together and defeats Izal on the ground, what about the terrorists already in our midst?
The Paris attackers included French and Belgian citizens, as well as ‘refugees’ who had entered Europe through Greece.

For more than a year, I’ve been pointing out that at least 90 per cent of these almost exclusively Muslim ‘refugees’ are fit young men of military age, about whom we know nothing. How can we be sure that among them there aren’t a significant number of terrorists sent to wreak havoc in European cities? The barbarians are already inside the gate.

After the massacre of British holidaymakers in Tunisia, I asked how anyone could be certain that one of these ‘refugees’ who makes it to Britain won’t get his hands on an automatic weapon and wander on to Brighton beach and start firing at random. Now we know the answer. They may not have reached Brighton yet, but they certainly managed to get as far as Paris.

Like the French, we also have our own home-grown terrorist problem. An estimated 450 British passport holders who have passed through Izal training camps are said to be walking our streets again.
How can we possibly keep track of all of them? They should never have been allowed back in the country. How long before one of these domestic terror cells goes ‘live’ in London, or one of our other cities?

The security services say they have foiled seven major plots this year alone. I believe them. But in the event of an extensive Paris-style attack, would we have the police and military manpower available to respond?
In the immediate aftermath of Paris, there were inevitable demands once again for the security services to be given more powers. But they still won’t use the powers they have got.

German police actually intercepted a car packed with weapons heading for Brussels, but forgot to tell their Belgian and French counterparts.
There have been raids on 180 different addresses in the wake of Friday’s massacre. If they already knew about these people, why hadn’t they raided them earlier? And why aren’t we doing the same? As in most of these incidents, at least one of the attackers was already on the radar.
Here in Britain, like most of Europe, there still doesn’t appear to be the political will to confront the terrorist threat head on, for fear of being accused of ‘Islamophobia’.

Incredibly, there are still dunderheads like Pixie Balls-Cooper who think we should open our doors to unlimited numbers of ‘refugees’ from North Africa, the Middle East and Afghanistan.

The West’s reaction to terrorist attacks is usually knee-jerk, piecemeal and hopelessly insufficient. Maybe that’s all we can do and hope that things get back to normal (ish), as we did after Madrid and the London Transport bombings.
After Paris, will the response be any different? I’d like to think so but I fear not.

All you need to know is that before the first shots were fired on Friday, world leaders were preparing to attend a grandiose summit, not to co-ordinate plans to fight terrorism, but to address what they claimed was the greatest threat to mankind — non-existent global warming.

No surprise that ‘human rights’ lawyers from Islington have travelled to Calais to help migrants at the notorious Jungle transit camp exploit a loophole in the law which would allow them to enter Britain.

But why anyone from this country would want to go to Calais to do their Christmas shopping is beyond me — despite the cheap booze.

Since the Paris attacks, Eurotunnel passenger numbers are down. So they have high hopes for a ‘Christmas in Calais’ special offer to tempt British punters to cross the Channel. Mickey Mouse will be there, so will Santa and visitors are promised ‘fairytale characters wandering the town centre’.
Yes, we’ve seen some of those fairytale characters, fighting with border guards and police, lighting fires on main roads, pulling down fences and trying to stow away in lorries, private cars and on trains.

Perhaps those Mickey Mouse ‘human rights’ lawyers might like to get in the Christmas spirit by dressing as Santa’s little helpers.

Ho, ho, ho!

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
