Here's an interesting and lively repost from frequent ace Jihad Watch contributorSpirit of 1683:
After our 'great escape' when mercifully hundreds, if not thousands of deaths of innocent people were avoided, with a large helping of luck, as well as beady eyes and a pubgoer who just happened to fall ill which led to the discovery of the car bomb, it is time we realised that the Islamists war has been brought to us in a big way, when they think the nations back has been turned. The attacks of 7/7 coincided with the G8 meeting in Scotland, and hundreds of feeble-minded protesters heading north, taking our eye off the ball, and two years later, the attempt to destroy a nightclub with hundreds inside and perhaps thousands milling around outside, who would have been incinerated in a 400 foot fireball if things had gone to plan, and the survivors of this led into an even deadlier trap with the second car in place.
But when the dust settles, it'll be back to the PC ways of June 28. Our country has forgotten the wise words of its political predecessor Winston Churchill who wrote:
“The religion of Islam above all others was founded upon the sword. Moreover it provides incentives to slaughter, and in three continents has produced fighting breeds of menkilled with a wild and merciless fanaticism.”
We were but a faulty mobile away from mass slaughter in the West End, but forgetfulness isn't confined to Britain. Americans and their leaders have forgotten the famous words of a former President, John Quincy Adams, from 180 years ago:
"In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adams's capital letters)… Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and goodwill towards men.”
The London bomb was largely aimed at killing young ladieswhy else would they carry it out on Ladies Night? But lets not forget another passage from JQA, which spells out the essence of mass slaughter inherent in Islam: "The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force."
But the mindset of the West in general and Britain in particular is not tuned into recognising evil when it is staring them in the face, and until it is too late. Chamberlain couldn't see the evil in Hitler, even though Churchill could, and he got ridiculed for it, until we went to war. And we cannot see the evil in the Islamists. We stupidly think we are being attacked because of our support for the US etc, and we think that because our press and media tell us that is so. But our press and media have an agenda, and public safety is not part of it. Political pointscoring is all they're interested in, and if that involves demonising the US and Israel and painting the Jihadis as victims, then so be it.
Even at the price of the corpses of 1,000 dead youngsters strewn across the street, many of them burned beyond recognition. But it certainly wasn't Americans or Israelis who tried to turn the Haymarket into a charnel house. It was Muslims, pure and simple, following the teachings of their prophet. And their response has been to suggest that Christians, Jews or Buddhists might also have been behind it. Anything to deflect the guilt placed on their heads by the dwindling band of sane and rational people in the UK.
