I’m not going to finish this tonight. Have to be up early tomorrow again and am very tired, and dare not have whisky in the house tonight. I’d drink it and tomorrow’s morning shift would be torment.
The shop’s only closing for two days. Tesco will be open Boxing Day for the true shopaholics. There are piled-high trolleys forming tailbacks in the aisles – you’d think the ‘We are Closed’ must mean no shop will ever open again. There’s stuff going in trolleys that didn’t get as far as the shelves!
Nearly over for another year. This time next year, I want to be in a job that closes before Christmas and doesn’t restart until the staff sober up in March. Which means I have to get books out this year. Yes, an early resolution.
Right. It’s a big and complex story, this one. Even David Icke hasn’t worked it all out and he’s been at it for years. We’ll start with Islam.
I have nothing against Islam per se, and nothing against anyone of Muslim or any other faith. Believe in whatever God(s) you like, one of you might even be right. When you consider that there are 1.8 billion Muslims out there and ISIS and all the rest likely number far less than a million, what you have are 1.799 billion Muslims who aren’t maniacs.
What are they doing? Working for a living, running businesses, researching, generally doing what everyone else is doing – trying to have a comfortable life and a bit of fun. You never hear about them just as you never hear about non-racist white men or non-homophobic people or non-radical gay people. Such things are not news.
When the IRA were at their height (funded by American donations, largely), Irish people were regarded with suspicion everywhere yet hardly any of them were in the IRA, supported it or gave a damn about it.
Did you spot it? ‘Funded by Americans’. Again, not a large percentage of Americans. A large enough number to make a difference though. While America decried other states for supporting terrorists, it turned a blind eye to its support of the IRA. Because most Americans were not supporting it or even gave a damn about it.
How many Christians support the Westboro Baptist Church? None, probably, yet look at the news coverage they get just by shouting, waving a few placards and generally being gits.
Everyone is terrified that Muslims are going to take over the world. I doubt that more than a fraction of a percent of the total Muslim population are even remotely interested in taking over the world. Most of those who have come to the West have done so to get away from a Mediaeval world where they still hang gays from cranes and cut people’s heads off for looking at them in a funny way or reading the wrong kind of religious book. Unfortunately their own brand of ultraloon has followed them here.
In Dresden there are now huge anti-Islam marches. There are also anti-anti-Islam marches, of course, but I bet less than half of the anti-anti marchers are Muslim. People everywhere are terrified of ‘creeping Islamism’ and ‘the new Caliphate’.
It’s not going to happen. It was never going to happen. We were just supposed to believe it would happen. More to the point, the maniacs on ISIS and Al-Qaeda have to believe it will happen so they carry out their atrocities in the sure and certain knowledge that they will win.
Both of those, and others, were formed by the West and are now supplied with weapons by the West. They never stop to consider why that might be. They never wonder why western media is so keen to broadcast their propaganda videos, to suggest that going to fight Jihad is in some way normal for any Muslim or why they spread the news of their actions far and wide.
As David Davis pointed out in comments, several of the countries now occupied by very crazy people are armed with nuclear weapons. Their governments aren’t likely to fire them (well, Iran might and North Korea is run by the Bad Hair Day Man so is very likely to) but their security systems are not nearly as advanced as their weapons systems. When the whole population is Muslim and everyone prays five times a day, it’s easy for a devout jihadist to hide. There is nothing in everyday life to mortally offend them so they can remain outwardly relaxed and thus infiltrate any system designed to keep them out.
Those nuclear weapons could one day come under radical control. If they aren’t already. Would they fire them? These are people willing to blow themselves to bits because a woman wore lipstick or a man had a bacon sandwich. We are not dealing with rational minds here. ‘Perspective’ is not in their vocabulary.
Slight but relevant digression. North Korea has been blamed for hacking into Sony’s computers. Most of North Korea doesn’t even have electricity and if they managed to get enough computer experts to hack into a computer system… why Sony? Gary McKinnon managed to access the Pentagon and all the combined might of North Korea could do was hack a film set? Now they are apparently hacking into South Korea’s nuclear power stations and so North Korea is losing Internet access. Another faux-bogeyman is about to be squished. One with nuclear bombs.
Back to Islam. Most Muslims are not terrorists, do not support the terrorists and do not care at all about them. They are just people who happen to believe a certain way and who just want a decent life. Before the Iraq invasion set off a Shia/Sunni internal war in that country, Shia and Sunni Muslims lived next door to each other and didn’t care at all about their differences.
In the UK in the 1500s/1600s, Protestants and Catholics used to kill each other. A lot. Same God, different way of worship. Now, apart from the occasional drunken skirmish, they just get along. They would have got along back then if it wasn’t for the ruling class stirring them up. You Must Hate The Others.
It’s not at all hard to get people to pick on a group and hate them. Not at all. It’s been happening throughout human history. It’s happening now. After setting up the antismoker hatefest, look how easily it has been applied to drinkers, the overweight, the disabled…
Take that last point. Most of those on disability benefits are in fact disabled. All you ever hear about are the ones who claim they can’t walk and are then photographed refereeing a football match. You’ll never hear about a friend of mine who worked as a manual labourer most of his life but now has arthritis so that some days he can barely move. He also has something known as ‘Viking disease’ which has so far cost him three fingers that were removed because they could no longer be straightened. Most of his remaining fingers don’t work either.
He was declared ‘fit for work’ and sent to the jobcentre who asked what the Hell they were supposed to do with him. When he is in hospital (often) he is not fit for work so cannot get jobseeker’s allowance, and is off the disability allowance.
Why? Because of public outrage against benefits cheats and a Government obsessed with targets. Something must be done. Get a percentage of them off this benefit to appease the voters. No, it doesn’t matter whether they are genuine or not.
The likes of ISIS make it easy to stir up anti-Muslim resentment even though hardly any of the total Muslim population are involved. Add to that a good few years of political correctness that allowed Muslim rape gangs and murderers to build up to ridiculous levels. Every Western-inspired version of radical Islam is more brutal and insane than the one before. None are ever truly eradicated. They could be, but are not. Instead they are provoked into higher and higher frenzies and encouraged and supplied with weapons.
The point is that, just as with the Irish and the IRA, most Muslims are not Jihadis. But as with the Irish and the IRA there is no easy way to tell which are the dangerous ones. This leads people to suspect them all. It’s a natural reaction, really, much the same as those who think kids will get plastered on chocolate liqueurs or those who believe they will get cancer from tobacco smoke even if they cannot see or smell it. When it’s no different from the air, they are afraid of the air. The danger can be anywhere.
What’s it all for and who’s doing it?
War is profitable. Not for either side involved because they are spending all they have and more on fighting the war. It’s profitable for the ones selling weapons and lending money to buy weapons to both sides.
There is also the matter of the now well-publicised intention to reduce the world human population to 500 milion. Getting the rest of the world to approve the eradication of 1.8 billion Muslims and to lynch anyone who objected would go a long way to acheiving that goal. If those Muslims go down fighting – and they will – they could well take another 1.8 billion along with them. Plus all the politically-correct who will demonstrate against that genocide, and you likely have the rapid removal of four billion people. That’s over halfway to the goal and it won’t take long.
The Muslim rape gangs got away with it for so long and became so bold and widespread because they were allowed to do so. That has come to an end. The madness of ISIS goes far beyond anything Al Qaeda did – tolerance for jihadis is pretty much worn out, even among the PC crowd. So they are encouraged to congregate in one place, in the desert, where a nuclear strike won’t do much to harm the precious environment. The oil? I don’t think those behind all this care all that much about the oil.
Is it the government? I would have thought so but it seems they’ve been set up for a fall too.
This is all a bit rambling I know, but I have to get it all down before I can try to sort any sense out of it all. I don’t think it’s space-lizards in people suits, it’s just people being shitty to one another and wanting to run absolutely everyone else’s lives. Nothing new, in other words. Just a new way of doing it.
Anyway, have to sleep (if the rambling in my head will let me). Sorry about not keeping up with comments. Normality will resume once Christmas is over. I hope.
