The Myth of ‘The Age of Humdrum Terror’

In response to the continued acts of terror in Europe and the U.S., the English weekly news magazine Economist recently opined that “it seems likely that much of Europe and America will have to get used to acts of Islamist-inspired terrorism becoming, if not routine, at least fairly regular occurrences.” Israel is cited as an example of where terrorism has become a part of daily life.

In this “age of humdrum terror,” the paper warned of the risk of overreacting to these acts of terrorism, since as President Obama observed, the likelihood of drowning in a bathtub is far greater than being murdered by terrorists. Though statistically the danger of being killed or maimed by a terrorist attack might be limited, this recklessly obscures the real objectives of this assault against the West, which is to undermine our way of life and substitute it for Islamic rule. Should the Islamic terrorists succeed in conquering the West through warfare or demographics, this will mean the end of the rule of law, evenhandedness, religious freedom, human dignity and the rights for women, minorities and non-Muslims.

    The sea change in the Economist was rather sudden…..I remember thinking to myself 15 years or more ago that Newsweeks journos had taken it over….
    It’s full of dykes shrikes queers and marxists now…..and snot green scrotum tightening eco freaks.

    Israel is safer than many Western countries because of the vigilance exercised by the authorities and the social cohesion of the public. Israeli Arabs know that the consequences will be dire if they resort to violence. Besides, the homicide rate unrelated to terrorism is one-third that of Europe.

    I forgot the point…..
    When western man gets up off his knees and sets about the job of work necessary to clean this filth out of our midst it will be one for the history books.

    These migrants and terrorists will be crying in the alley when they are being lacerated from behind as well. Anyone thinks these tinpot dictators won’t assist the West once we pick up the whip is a naive gormless pessimistic cunt.

    Go Trump go !

    Never never never never never give in….

  • Well, I’m sure the statistical possibilities of a President getting assassinated is also similar. Following that logic, so why does Obama walk around with a small army of body guards all the time?

    By the way, hasn’t Obama ever heard of bathtub mats? I’ll bet the death stats are probably next to zero for people who use bathtub mats.

    About 15 years ago I had a conversation with an Israeli and I mentioned that all they were doing is resetting the water level of acceptable atrocities. Over time the water level rises.

    Oh bother. Another 80 people mowed down while watching a parade. Is it really necessary for everyone to go on about these things?

    But you can’t sensationalize global warming enough. Do people actually pay money for The Economist or is it just another Soros-funded disinformation project?

    In the US, the Democratic Party has already succeeded in putting an end to the rule of law, religious freedom, and human dignity.
