Douglas Murray has it almost right [Link] "The Paris attacks show that barbarians are inside the gate". "We don’t know who is here in our continent, and among those who are here there are too many who are active enemies of our societies and our way of life." We know this, everyone knows it; the only mystery is why governments and politicians not only ignore the obvious facts but actively and willingly - at complete opposition to the people of every nation they supposedly represent - take actions that can only exacerbate the problem by importing thousands more 'refugees'. Will the impitoyable war emerge? Or will another hash-tag, t-shirt wearing linked-armed and candle-lit vigil be the sum of all action?
Indeed, it's as Mark Steyn writes: The Barbarians Are Inside, And There Are No Gates [Link] "I'm Islamed out. I'm tired of Islam 24/7, at Colorado colleges, Marseilles synagogues, Sydney coffee shops, day after day after day. The west cannot win this thing with a schizophrenic strategy of targeting things and people but not targeting the ideology, of intervening ineffectually overseas and not intervening at all when it comes to the remorseless Islamization and self-segregation of large segments of their own countries"..."So I say again: What's the happy ending here? Because if M Hollande isn't prepared to end mass Muslim immigration to France and Europe, then his "pitiless war" isn't serious. And, if they're still willing to tolerate Mutti Merkel's mad plan to reverse Germany's demographic death spiral through fast-track Islamization, then Europeans aren't serious."
Amen to that.
Update: apologies for lack of Ows comment but these guys write so well and their words are worth linking to. Douglas Murray again: an update of an article earlier this year: "The West’s movement towards the truth is remarkably slow. We drag ourselves towards it painfully, inch by inch, after each bloody Islamist assault"... ..."the results of ongoing mass immigration to the West at the same time as a worldwide return to Islamic literalism means that this is now a problem for all of us. To stand even a chance of dealing with it, we are going to have to wake up to it and acknowledge it for what it is." ...who thinks seriously that any of today's 'ruling' (not serving) politicians will do this?
