Posted on 05/24/2013 9:52:26 AM PDT by IbJensen
After a British soldier wearing a Help for Heroes charity T-shirt was run over, stabbed and slashed with machetes and a meat cleaver, and beheaded, the Tory government advised its soldiers that it is probably best not to appear in uniform on the streets of their capital.
Both murderers were wounded by police. One was photographed and recorded. His message:
"There are many, many (verses) throughout the Quran that says we must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. I apologize that women had to witness this today, but in our land women have to see the same. Your people will never be safe."
According to ITV, one murderer, hands dripping blood, ranted, "We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you."
Both killers are Muslim converts of African descent, and both are British born.
Wednesday also, Stockholm and its suburbs ended a fourth night of riots, vandalism and arson by immigrant mobs protesting the police shooting of a machete-wielding 69-year-old.
"We have institutional racism," says Rami Al-khamisi, founder of a group for "social change."
Among advanced nations, Sweden ranks fourth in the number of asylum seekers it has admitted and second relative to its population.
Are the Swedes really the problem in Sweden?
The same day these stories ran, The Washington Post carried a front-page photo of Ibrahim Todashev, martial arts professional and friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who, with brother Dzhokhar, set off the bombs at the Boston Marathon massacre.
Todashev, another Chechen, had been shot to death by FBI agents, reportedly after he confessed to his and Tamerlan's role in a triple murder in Waltham, Mass.
Though Tamerlan had been radicalized and Moscow had made inquiries about him, he had escaped the notice of U.S. authorities. Even after he returned to the Caucasus for six months, sought to contact extremists, then returned to the U.S.A., Tamerlan still was not on Homeland Security's radar.
His father, granted political asylum, went back to the same region he had fled in fear. His mother had been arrested for shoplifting. Yet none of this caused U.S. officials to pick up Tamerlan, a welfare freeloader, and throw the lot of them out of the country.
One wonders if the West is going to wake up to the new world we have entered, or adhere to immigration policies dating to a liberal era long since dead.
It was in 1965, halcyon hour of the Great Society, that Ted Kennedy led Congress into abolishing a policy that had restricted immigration for 40 years, while we absorbed and Americanized the millions who had come over between 1890 and 1920.
The "national origins" feature of that 1924 law mandated that ships arriving at U.S. ports carry immigrants from countries that had provided our immigrants in the past. We liked who we were.
Immigration policy was written to reinforce the Western orientation and roots of America, 90 percent of whose population could by 1960 trace its ancestry to the Old Continent.
But since 1965, immigration policy has been run by people who detest that America and wanted a new nation that looked less like Europe and more like a continental replica of the U.N. General Assembly.
They wanted to end America's history as the largest and greatest of Western nations and make her a nation of nations, a new society and a new people, more racially, ethnically, religiously and culturally diverse than any nation on the face of the earth.
Behind this vision lies an ideology, an idee fixe, that America is not a normal nation of blood and soil, history and heroes, but a nation erected upon an idea, the idea that anyone and everyone who comes here, raises his hand, and swears allegiance to the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights becomes, de facto, not just a legal citizen but an American.
But that is no more true than to say that someone who arrives in Paris from Africa or the Middle East and raises his hand to declare allegiance to the Rights of Man thereby becomes a Frenchman.
What is the peril into which America and the West are drifting?
Ties of race, religion, ethnicity and culture are the prevailing winds among mankind and are tearing apart countries and continents. And as we bring in people from all over the world, they are not leaving all of their old allegiances and animosities behind.
Many carry them, if at times dormant, within their hearts.
And if we bring into America afflicted by her polarized politics, hateful rhetoric and culture wars peoples on all sides of every conflict roiling mankind, how do we think this experiment is going to end?
The immigration bill moving through the Senate, with an amnesty for 11 to 12 million illegals already here, and millions of their relatives back home, may write an end to more than just the Republican Party.
Freedom will also be dead. God gave us a chance to live free more than 200 years ago and we have squandered it all for the sake of proving we're not racists by electing an unknown, highly dangerous cupcake to ruin our nation and our lives forever!
Damn the politicians....
Of course that would excluded politicians and anyone on the left.
Oh, you’ll wake up soon enough. When your heads start rolling in earnest.
And then, there’ll be a reckoning. I figure 30-40 mill dead muslims and communists. And of course the conflagration will spread.
Unfortunately, the forces of political correctness are so strong, that we aren’t allowed to have frank discussions of these issues. We’re not allowed to talk about whether amnesty is good for society or our culture. We’re not allowed to ask whether immigrants, legal or not, are assimilating as previous generations did.
To question any of this gets you branded a racist, bigot, and xenophobe. And then the discussion is over. Unfortunately liberals are controlling the terms of the debate we are permitted to have on these subjects.
we not only squandered it away, We threw it back in His face by essentailly telling Him “Thanks fer all Ya did God, but we can take it from here- don’t need Ya anym ore- run along now”
We reaped all the benifits of His blessing,s then once we were powerful and prosperous, we puffed out our chests and took full credit for our wealth and prosperity, and now we’re kicking Him out and inviting Satan in- and we are abotu to witness a very rapid descent into Evil-
The left have removed their boxing gloves, and are now fighting bare-fisted no holds barred- when htey are called to hte carpet for their ILLEGAL activity, they simpyl laugh, shrug hteir shoudlers and say “I don’t remember” knowing full well that their sin will NOT be prosecuted-
Seeing that scumbag garbage with bloody hands standing there calmly giving an interview?...I wish someone would have bashed his brains in.
No, the West has jettisoned Christianity, and has nothing with which to fight Islam.
Surprised the Free Trade/Open Borders crowd hasn’t attacked Buchanan yet....
Spot on with this. Buchanan may not like Israel but he is still an Americanist... and understands who is the enemy.
There are people that don’t like us...and they are getting a lot of help from people who don’t like America....and quite a few of those are in the GOP
Well the first part is true. The West has jettisoned Christianity but we sure have already killed more of Islam than they have killed us. The message, whether we want to hear it or not, is 'they are killing us over here but we are killing them over there'. We want to make democracies out of them, why? Let them kill each other and sort it out while we watch from afar.
You are dead on. We are fighting a demonic force.
“We have institutional racism,” says Rami Al-khamisi, founder of a group for “social change.”
Gee Rami, ‘ya think it may have to do with your religion providing us daily examples of 13th century savagery? They usually shout words honoring your religion as they do so. Think there’s a connection? Also, in as much as other religions don’t seem to have this problem, ‘ya think people should be wary of muslims? You think???
No, not even if we give them all big hugs.
Winston Churchill once said(in reference to Neville Chamberlain’s Appeasement Policy towards Hitler)”:You Feed The Crocodile Hoping That You’ll Be The Last One He Eats”!!This is basically what we in the west have been doing!!!The “Enemy” is amongst us(ironically)at our BEHEST!!!!!!!
‘Will the West wake up?’
Not if the left can stop it.
>>>America is Balkanizing at an ever increasing rate and will be nothing more than a bunch of lines on a map by 2020, if not sooner.<<<
Bull crap. America can’t ‘balkanize’ by definition. US administrative division is not based on religion or ethnicity.
Really, this is the best comment I've read on the whole sorry mess.
The jihadist was standing there with BLOODY HANDS and no one did a damned thing!!
I wish I'd been there with my .357 BEFORE the "cleaving" began.
This is why we must protect the 2nd amendment with everything we've got --w/o it we are PREY to these goons, nothing more.
Heard the poor soul's wife on the radio today --she was crying so hard she could hardly speak...Oh, I wish I had been there!! (with my guns, of course).
