Some observations on yesterday's events

Having grown up in the 70s and 80s, I well remember the horrors the Fenians inflicted on us, and have hazy memories of the Baader Meinhoff gang, the Red Brigades etc etc, but what separates the urban terrorists of that period from the Islamofascists of today is the rather clearer modus operandi of the former, and their more selective targeting. Even considering all out inter state warfare, Kyoto was blocked from being a nuclear target in ’45 because of the importance of its religious sites to Shintoists, and the Germans were somewhat surprised that Monte Cassino abbey was bombed.

As I have noted before, the IRA etc were more than capable of causing massacres, should they have sought them, and it was notable that when they killed the 'wrong' people, like that poor child in Warrington, the IRA's command were quick to issue (admittedly mealy-mouthed) apologies. They recognised that the broader constituency they were appealing to - SDLP supporters in Ulster and bone-headed 'Irish' Americans (there are more Americans descended from Ulster Protestants than from southern Irish Catholics) - were likely to be appalled by such actions. In contrast, the methods of the Islamofascists, as evidenced by yesterday, 9/11, 7/7 etc is to slaughter indiscriminately, and there has been nothing approaching a backlash within the Muslim communities against the actions performed in their name. Even the pseudo-moderates mutter bromides about ‘community anger’ about the chimaera that is Islamophobia, or about Western foreign policy. And of course they have then gained (im)moral support from moral relativists (by far the kindest phrase I could use) like Jenny Tonge and Cherie Blair.

It is notable that none of the apologists for Al Qaeda and its wannabes have ever, to my knowledge, expressed any regret for the death of Muslims caused by their 'spectaculars', let alone we infidels. Apart from the obvious savagery towards those who are not they, it also tells us that 'collateral damage' is more than acceptable to them.

Broadening this out, the Islamofascists have gone out of their way to attack soft targets, whereas the terrorists we got used to /generally/ mounted attacks against what could, in their terms, be seen as legitimate targets - the law, the armed forces, politicians, and local 'enemies'. It is perhaps worth pondering on why the Green terror has not been applied systematically against the state, and why attacks on Jews have been limited to the odd shul / graveyard desecration and beating up Yeshiva students. Given that most of our homegrown Islamofascists have roots in Kashmir, it is also notable that Hindus and Indian-linked targets have not found themselves to be primary targets.

I'm keeping an eye on the apologist websites, but so far not a mumbling word from any of them.

Firstly two children died in the Warrington bombing
Tim Parry and Jonathan Ball.
Secondly your blind allegiance to Israel yet again clouds your judgement.
Islamic terrorists are attacking this country not because "they hate our freedom"
They are attacking us because of our Governments support for USrael, That means Iraq and Lebanon.
You may have a warped Israel fetish, I do not, why should the life's of both myself and my fellow countrymen be placed in danger for that shitty, criminal little country?
If you like them so much I suggest you get of your arse and go and volunteer for the IDF.

PCF - you might have noticed that I did not impute a motive to the followers of the 'religion of peace'. Also, there were any number of attacks by Islamofascists on the West long before any of the more recent events. Do you seriously consider that selling Israel down the river and withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan is going to be a sufficient danegeld?

I am rather too old and rather too goyische to be a suitable recruit for the IDF. Plus they have people at Lod Airport to prevent enthusiastic would be military volunteers from getting in the way of any war effort.

PCF is prepared to let Israel go hang. He is foolish to think that Islamo-fascist ambition ends in the Middle East. If you tolerate this...

praguetory you're dead right except it won't be our kids that are next but us.

PCF,C is right,if we sell Israel down the swanny they'll still be after us.Importantly,mossad are bastards and whereas we aren't practical in figthing terrorists tehy are.

To clarify a few things
When it comes down to it ,I care about what happens in my country, not Israel, not Iran nor the Lebanon. I say leave em to it, it has nothing to do with us.
We dont even need to worry about the oil, they have it we want it, they produce nothing else so we trade and leave them in the 7th century with whatever toys we sell them.
I dont wish to die in the cause of the religious fantasies of a bunch of yids.

Is it 'a quarrel in a far-away country between people of whom we know nothing'?
