Like frogs, who are incapable of detecting the smooth, slow approach of a snake because their eyes are only adapted to see the quick movements of flies, western nations seem unable to see the infiltration of their homelands by an insidious ideology whose sworn goal is to destabilize, out-populate, overwhelm, and conquer them.
The next Islamic terror attack happened this week at a large concert arena in Manchester, the second largest city in the UK. The bomber, Salman Abedi, had in recent years raised numerous suspicions of having become radicalized but wasn’t believed an immediate threat. Beyond the obvious tragedy of innocent concert goers being brutally murdered is the unnecessary travesty of politicians and media figures saying we must become accustomed to terror as well as be especially focused on Islamophobia.
In the United States ABC proclaimed its primary concern to be an anti-Muslim backlash, while the BBC advised that Europeans simply needed to get used to these attacks. Prime Minister Teresa May promised to “defeat the ideology that often fuels this violence” but did not name the ideology she was referring to.

Timidity in the face of barbarity. We’ve seen this pattern increasing across Europe as the 2015 wave of massive Muslim immigration has led to jihadist attacks and fear of attacks. Here was a case not so much of a specific threat as it was the native Dutch citizens deciding they simply didn’t want their elementary school children to experience an atmosphere of unease during a town Christmas festival.
A former disciple of radical imam Anjem Choudary reflects on how his childhood traumas and broken home led him into drug use and dealing in his teen years, ultimately landing him in prison. Angry and incarcerated, Jesse Morton was in perfect condition to be radicalized into a committed jihadi.
The “migrant crisis” in Europe has been the best development for Islamic terrorist networks in (possibly) forever.
