After Barcelona: Let the Denial and Excuses Begin

Won’t somebody think of the children?

In the aftermath of yet another Islamist attack in Europe, this time in Barcelona, the usual excuse makers will still be trying to blame the Iraq war, or the Crusades, or the fact the perpetrator may have been unemployed as the motivations for the atrocity. I worked for several years as a youth worker with unemployed young British men from many ethnic and racial backgrounds. None of them ever resorted to driving over their fellow citizens to quell the boredom and frustration of being jobless.

The Jeremy Corbyns, Ken Livingstones, Cenk Uygurs, and Sally Kohns of this world and many of their supporters will grasp at anything but admit the truth that the Islamic faith has a problem with both violent and nonviolent extremism. When you want to talk about Islamic extremism they will bring up the fact that all religions have their extremists. This is undoubtedly true, but there is a qualitative difference between an extreme Mormon and his strange underwear collection and a Wahhabi hate preacher who believes Western women are whores who should be driven over and maimed beneath the axles of a speeding van.

    Yes, think of the children, but this time try thinking of your OWN children.
    The children of Europe and not the children of those invading her.

    Even discussing this is silly. Nothing will change no one in power in the EU will even pretend to.

    And here is Sara Khan claiming: “Millions of Muslims across the world subscribe to interpretations of Islam that endorse co-existence, humanity, tolerance and compassion.They genuinely believe Islam is a religion of peace. It’s why for centuries Christians, Muslims and other minorities lived together peacefully in many Middle Eastern countries before the ascent of ISIS.”

    If it ever was peaceful it was and is an uneasy peace at best. See Lebanon, See Egypt, See Malaysia. The woman is a useful idiot or a deliberate liar.

  • Stop feeling sorry for the Europeans. They clearly want this. If they didn’t, they would have done something to stop it.

  • The Brits will be alright. Their Government has announced that it will prevent all future “speeding van” mass murders by making it more difficult for known terrorists to hire vans. They will, being Muslims, be allowed to terrorise, as that is part of their culture, but legally hiring a van will not be permitted to anyone writing “known terrorist” in the box marked “occupation’.

    As words quite fail me, I will leave it to other readers to list the things that could go wrong with this Master Plan, assuming Blazing Catfur has space for them all.

      British authorities are stuck on stupid.

        Thar’s a fair comment but don’t confuse the “British authorities” with the British people. Sadly, the “authorities” do not represent the views of a large section of society. And many of us are not happy with it.
