Terrorism in France: Whom to Blame? Politicians, Artists & Celebs


Last week, Paris was the stage of three attacks perpetrated by Islamic terrorists – 12 people were killed, 5 were injured, in the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, on Wednesday; 1 policewoman was killed, one man  was injured, on Thursday; 4 people were killed and 4 were severely wounded, on Friday. Death toll: 17 people in 3 days.
These terror attacks could have been avoided – but in the exercise of my right to freedom of opinion, I clearly state that most world politicians, artists and celebrities (i.e. the apologists and sympathisers of Islam) have the blood of those killed in any Islamic terrorist attack in their hands.

The Arab League condemned Wednesday's Paris attack (but perhaps not Friday's), however their condemnation means little when many (if not most) of its member states sponsor terrorism. For instance, how can a country like Sudan & Turkey (that has admitted to harbouring elements of terrorist organisations) decry a terror attack in all honesty? How can a nation like Saudi Arabia & Qatar (that sponsor major religious conflicts plus terrorism in the Middle East, Asia and Africa), in all earnestness, condemn a terror attack?
I would've applauded the Arab League if this organisation had had the fortitude displayed by Sheikh David Munir (a Portuguese Imam): “If [Muslims] are not satisfied with living in liberal countries, they should just emigrate and leave us alone” (Here, in Portuguese) - indeed, they should pack their bags and migrate to those Muslim countries where their susceptibilities won't be hurt and where freedom of expression, of religion, of association is ignored.
I would've further applauded the Arab League if this organisation had echoed the words of President Abdel al-Sisi:

“Is it possible that 1.6 billion [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants – that is 7 billion – so that they themselves may live? Impossible!…(..) I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move…because this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost – and it is being lost by our own hands,"

The apologists should pay attention to President Sisi's discourse: the Egyptian leader held the whole Ummah responsible for terrorist attacks around the world; he didn't make the distinction between “moderate Muslims” and “radical” ones, neither between “a peaceful majority” and “a violent minority” – he's right; but I wonder if even he will be called a “racist” or “Islamophobic”?

The Islamic State said that the Paris Shooting was an indication that “the vengeance of Mohammed 'just began'” and if we add these words to the information we have on the tactics employed by the perpetrators, we should be able to re-think everything we thought we knew about Global Jihad and how deep it goes.
Global Jihad is no minor thing; therefore, we would appreciate it if politicians, like Ana Gomes, would refrain themselves from tweeting baseless opinions like This One – especially when Alan B. Krueger & Jitka Maleckova have already refuted poverty, and other social ailments, as causes of terrorism. Politicians should think before they express themselves, for being elected is not a green card to witlessness and cheap demagoguery.

Said & Cherif Kouachi (French nationals) stormed into Charlie Hebdo's office building with Kalashnikovs and RPGs in their hands, in broad daylight: how could this have been possible?
A security expert told i-HLS that “In some Muslim neighborhoods in Paris and other cities, there are stockpiles of weapons,” and that Muslim terror cells - in France - are well equipped “with heavier weapons than just assault rifles” - how did we allow things to get to this point?

The signs are all there: we have an Islamic problem and it's counterproductive to sugar-coat it. It's also counterproductive to proceed with appeasement policies regarding Islamic countries (that feed the problem).
We live in a global village, meaning that nations have to interact with each other, however that interaction implies reciprocity (beyond trade opportunities) – a word to the wise...
Indeed, the signs have been here for quite a while. In 2013, I wrote that the Secret Services should act as the defenders of democracy:

“After scrapping some more, I realised the IC [Intelligence Communty] is in a privileged position of not only having to keep us all safe, but also of protecting our democracies (from potential infiltrators).
If we look at Europe (one of America's most important trade partners), we must acknowledge that there is a severe problem going on there; one that politicians are having a hard time solving.
Politicians' main job description is to legislate (in a way that benefits the people), to solve problems and keep the people happy - i.e. working, being safe and distracted with futilities. When politicians fail, by system, in doing their job and the people is unhappy for long periods of time, something is deeply wrong and someone is benefiting from it.
This is when democracy is in peril and when the secret services come to its rescue: the establishment needs to know the intentions of political leaders who are systematically unable to solve problems; who are systematically unable to take a firm position in crucial issues and incapable of siding with historical allies; who keep society with suspicious elements; who systematically try to disrupt a country's stability and development etc etc.
Certain influential public figures should be under scrutiny as well.

I scrap the surface of events and realise that a new order is being given birth:

Political Community Vs Intelligence Community”

The above words have never been so important as today; although I recently realised that  even the intelligence community seems to be in need of a reformation before it takes on that important task.

"Terrorism is taking new shape and new name. No country, big or small, in the north or the south, east or west, is free from its threat. Are we really making concerted international efforts to fight these forces, or are we still hobbled by our politics, our divisions, our discrimination between countries, distinction between good and bad terrorists?" -- PM Narendra Modi

  1. Well said. And how about that sham they called march for peace/anti-terror/for unity? France doesn't learn jot, she had the nerve to invite terror sponsor states to march along the victims and they wonder why Obama wasn't there? Good for him!

    1. Hi Anon :D!

      It was a shameful march indeed. France had no business inviting terror sponsoring and hatred inciting countries to join that march: what was Hollande thinking?
      I agree that Pres. Obama did well not to attend the charade.

      Anon, thank you so much for your comment :D.

      Cheers

  2. I think it's racist to relate Islam with these terrorist attacks cause you can't hold the majority of Muslims responsible for the actions of a few! I don't know what Sisi was thinking but I think he's wrong! Maybe he's just pandering to the Americans but not even Obama called the attacks Islamic attacks! You are inciting against Muslims and you have hatred in your heart, Max!

    1. I live in India. We lose lives everyday within our territory to Pakistani terrorists aided and abetted by Pakistan's official establishment who call them non-state players! And if you want to know what Pakistan, an Islamic nation of about 150 million Muslims, feels about Charlie Hebdo, just please read this. http://tribune.com.pk/story/821160/rally-in-peshawar-celebrates-charlie-hebdo-attackers/

    2. Celia, why must you always be a douchebag? Funny, I didn't see your comment on the post that discussed intellectual impotence: what's the matter, too close to home? You only comment in posts that refer to Arabs or Muslims, why?

      Delete
    3. Hi Celia :)!

      I would be grateful if you could explain how I incited against Muslims and how you reckon that I have hatred in my heart...or you just fancy making baseless accusations?
      President Sisi is extremely right because only Muslims, those who want to live in peace can help end this wave of Islamic terror. The whole Ummah is responsible, period. Unlike, most western politicians, he's not a coward when it comes to Islamic terrorism.

      Cheers

    1. Hi Rummy :D!

      Thanks for the link, my friend.
      I just wonder if those cartoons really depict Mohammed or do they depict a random Salafi/Saudi? Some Muslims are generating too much fuss for nothing.

  5. Checking the rants that showed up on facebook last week, there were several against Christians and the church and some against the police, guns and whites.

    If the west were to get serious, they still have the challenge of defining the words "Islam" and "Muslim", along with becoming familiar with the concepts. So I see three insurmountable obstacles which must be passed in order: 1) Getting serious. 2) Correctly identifying "Islam" and "Muslim", and 3) learning something about these terms.

    1. Hi Looney :D!

      You are so right. Most in the West don't know the concepts really well and then justify barbaric behaviour, mainly on the part of certain Muslims. But hey, they probably owe something to certain Islamic groups so...they'll say whatever in detriment of our security, our values, our customs.

      Looney, thank you so much for your great comment :D.

  6. "It is time to put an end to the suicidal practice of political correctness. We have to recognize terrorists for who they are, and we have to acknowledge the role radical Islam plays in the rise of violence and terrorism worldwide. Terrorist attacks, wherever they take place, cannot be justified or condoned."

    To Ana Gomes: "Radical Islam is not the product of poor socio-economic conditions, and wherever it gains a foothold we immediately see the subjugation and oppression of women and religious minorities."

    "Criticizing and denouncing radical Islam for the actions of its proponents is not Islamophobia -- it is a necessary, justified action if we are to hold Muslims responsible for the religious education they offer."

  7. I don't think the U.S. will be of much help until the liberals can get over tjeir aversion to the word "terrorist"

    1. Hi D! :D

      Most US liberals, with the exception of those like Bill Maher, are pathetic when it comes to discussing Islamic terrorism - right now I'm think of Ben Affleck. They even go as far as comparing a religion to race lol; it's ludicrous.
      We need to call things by their proper names.

      D, thank you so much for your comment :D. It's great to see you here.

  8. I only have two questions: how come France rarely gets jihadists alive? And how come countries like Belgium and Greece ask Mossad to help but the French never do (and their Jewish nationals are the ones who are more attacked)?

    1. Hi Celeste :D!

      Good questions, Cêcê. But I haven't seen any journalist asking those same questions...
      Perhaps Europe, in particular France, believes their Jews are dispensable - in spite of their post-attack beautiful words.

      Cêcê, thank you for your comment, girl.

  9. I think the key takeaway word from the entire post would be the word 'Apologists', who I think are the real culprits and who should be blamed first for these unfortunate incidents that is happening throughout the world because these apologists, the so called messiahs of humanity in the name of equality, democracy and free speech would first defend them and then on many instances would also provide them real ideological support to further bolster these antisocial elements. Its not only about who is perpetrating the act but it is also about who is masterminding it and providing tactical support.
