They smell the blood in infidels in the water ...

Frankly, I just didn't have time to post on it earlier - and others higher up in the food chain did, so I felt it was covered well enough.

It is a lesson worth repeating though. This is a long war. This is a war of civilizations. This is a war for the Enlightenment. This is a war where our enemy has both a longer view and is fighting inside our lines.

It is a war where we must have the courage to stand up for the basics of freedom. That is where the cancer of Diversity and PC thought hurts so much. It promotes self-doubt and self-loathing. Self-doubt and self-loathing is where cultural bullies with a political mindset - Fascists and Communists are/were best at this kind of stuff - flourish.

What happend to Swedish cartoonist
Lars Vilks is a perfect example. Force yourself to watch it all.

With the weak response to their attacks the Islamists did what all authoritarians do - they attacked harder.
The home of a Swedish artist who once drew a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad as a dog has been hit by a suspected arson attack, police said Saturday.

Lars Vilks, who lives in Nyhamnslage in southern Sweden, was not at home during the attack late Friday night and no one was reported injured.

It was the latest in a week of attacks on the 53-year-old cartoonist, who was assaulted Tuesday by a man while he lectured at a university and saw his Web site apparently attacked by hacker on Wednesday.

Police were alerted just before noon Saturday, as people passing by the artist's house noted that several windows had been smashed. When officers arrived, they discovered plastic bottles filled with gasoline and fire damage on the surface of the building. Attackers are also suspected of having tried setting the inside of house on fire, but the flames are thought to have fizzled out.

Police have no suspects in the case, police Spokeswoman Sofie Osterheim said.
This will continue to get worse and worse until the West stands up for itself. It is Sharia via cultural cowardice.

If the West's weak-willed, self-loathing Left and Center-Left does not start standing up - the Islamists will push harder and harder. Over time, more of the indigenous center of the countries under pressure will look for other places to defend their freedom. They will start to make our buddy Outlaw Mike look like a Social Democrat.

The West's options are simple. Defend yourself now and those like Lars Vilks and the late Theo Van Gogh, submit to Sharia, or wait for open social conflict where blood will blow and bodies will lie rotting in the open.

Option 1 is the best; sure you will be called names and be yelled at by the ignorant - but it is much better than the other two.

Like I said before - watch
Sweden around Malmo, the northern suburbs of Paris, Belgium around Brussels, The Netherlands around Rotterdam and Amsterdam for the first signs.

At least for the time being their incendiary skills seem to come up lacking.

What will we do when they finally get it right?

Butch said...

Relying on your enemy's ineptitude is not a good long range strategery.

Butch said...

I developed the attached several years ago to encapsulate our options - too much time with PPT!

We tried COA 1 for decades: backing strongmen to keep their populations in line and sending in the FBI to go through the rubble to build a case afterwards.  That didn't work out so well.  I see the current administration reverting to this.

I, and most of your readers, value Western Civ too much for COA 2.  However, I am not confident of my fellow Westerners' fortitude.

GWB attempted COA 3 following 9-11: change the geostrategic landscape.  However, given the incompatibility of true Islam and Western Civ, I am not optimistic.  Phib, I know you have served with fine Muslims, but put me in the "there is no moderate Islam, only non-observent Muslims."  But we owe ourselves the effort to try, because if we don't, the other COAs are very bad.

COA 4 is unpalatable, and I doubt most Americans - citizens & ruling elite - have the stomach for it.  We no longer have ruthless bastards, such as Charles Martel, Jan Sobiesky, FDR, or Churchill who will do whatever is necessary to save Western Civilization.  If I have to eliminate 1+ billion Muslims to do so, I will.  I will ignore  the condemnation of our secular Muslims (as defined by Mark Steyn) who prefer moral preening to action.  I will accept judgment from a much higher authority.  This is not genocide - it is the eradication of a poisonous ideology, implacably devoted to destroying Western values.

DeltaBravo said...

But...but....but... our leadership keeps saying "The system worked!"

Don't forget London and Birmingham...

Like Butch said, we need men like Charles Martel.  We need to read their book and realize that Islam, as stated in it's own holy book, is the implacable enemy of Western Civilization.  Politically correct platitudes and weak kneed responses only embolden those who seek to destroy us.  

The choice is between continuing our complacent timidity and being overwhelmed by those bent on our annihilation, or deciding that our civilization is worth preserving and preventing them from turning our homelands into the same kind of cesspools they are coming from.  If Islamic "Culture" is so great, why are they coming here?  

If the leaders of the Western Democracies had read Mien Kampf, and taken it seriously, perhaps the disaster of Hitler's Germany could have been avoided.  We still have time to prevent an even darker threat, but we have to take it seriously.  Like Hitler, the Islamists are broadcasting their intentions.  We are just refusing to see the threat.

Did you notice the Swedes in the crowd?  Sitting there calmly while their basic liberties are being violently threatened.  Like confused cattle awaiting their turn at the stun gun.  

Do we need to wait until the Cathedral of Dotre Dame and Westminister Cathedral meet the same fate as St. Sophia?

Stuff like this also shows how a battle of civilizations really means a battle of young men. Our young men vs their young men. One group is going to enforce their will on the other. Sure there were some old muslims shouting, but what gave them the courage was the young, healthy muslim men. And the Swedes were just sitting their meek.

Would the young muslim dudes have been behaving so aggressively if there were one or two dozen young, tough, healthy Swedish dudes standing there in their face? I bet not.

Kristen said...

Excellent, great point.  Nation states are defended by young men.  If they refuse to fight, it's over.

Well said.  I would, however, modify the last part to read:

If they refuse -- or are not allowed -- to fight, it's over.

Concur with everyone re: the rise of Islamic radicals. However, there's another angle to this particular incident. It wasn't so long ago that displaying Jesus in such a manner would have resulted in violence....and still will in some places. Try showing a homoerotic film involving Moshe (Moses) anywhere near an ultra-orthodox Jewish neighborhood like Mea Shearim in Jerusalem. The black hats will stone you.

What exactly was the purpose of egging on the Muslims? Is this about free speech...use it or lose it? When you mess around with a revered religious figure....Jesus, Moses, Mohammad or whoever....when you mess around with something so central and so key to someone's very being, you play with fire. The devout believers will always place what they believe to be God's law above man's law. The attack on Lars Vilks is a good example.

I have no use for Islam. It's a barbaric and false religion founded by an Arab warlord who slaughtered his way across much of the known world. It is evil and a blight on this world. But we have enough legitimate issues with Islam and radicals within that religion without stoking the fires with a homoerotic film depicting Mohammad. If they won't behave themselves and assimilate into Swedish society, then Sweden should drop the hammer on them. Deal with the problem in a decisive manner, but don't just go out and piss them off for the sake of pissing them off. All that Vilks and his kind are doing is compounding the problem without working toward a solution.

Maybe the Obamanites will get serious about fighting the threat?  Naaa

MR T's Haircut said...

Rome's armory was full when she was sacked by the barbarians... her populace cried not for the rape and pillage, but because no longer could they free bread or circus... sounds familiar...

Outlaw Mike said...

Well said AW1 Tim. Personally, I too have come to the conclusion that there are no moderate muslims, only muslims using different time frames and/or tactics for the realization of their global caliphate.

Jesus, just look at the UN these days. What's the biggest voting block? The OIC. Can you imagine western nations having something similar?

Another take:  It seems in vouge to push to extract reparations from Western Civilization because of slavery (oh, yes....mostly practiced on a far larger scale by the Arabic/Muslim countries than anything the West did).

So is it maybe just rage over the success and this is a way to take out their anger?

MY view:  The joke will be on them, when they get their way and destroy the West....Who will bring innovation?  Who will provide coherent thinking?  Who will be productive, and at the basic level, who will be the consumers who pay for the products and services and keep them employed, even at wages they think are too small?  Yep...the very people they hate and want eliminated.

Waht did someone say?  Be careful what you wish for?

Ill say that: Islam needs Reformation, just as Christianity needed it in the age of Torquemada. Otherwise it will eventually face extinction because it is not compatible not with western civilization, but with inherent human yearning for freedom.

Anthony Mirvish said...

The Reformation was also a call for a return to fundamentals as opposed to the perceived worldiness and corruption of the Catholic Church during that period.  It was not a call to greater moderation and the two centuries of religious war that followed demonstrated that, on both sides, in spades.  What was most positive about it was its rejection of a single institutional Christian path to God in favor of individual paths.  That helped, ultimately, once everyone was fought-out and had agreed to disagree, with the rise of liberty, particularly in northern Europe.  In the current WOT, the Islamists are the ones pushing for a return to the fundamentals of their religion - which is not a moderate one in any theological sense.  In their mind, they are the Reformation.  Absent extended bloodletting, I see no chance of changing their minds.

COA #3 has been my preferred option and I fervently pray for its success, however every day that passes seems to bolster the argument for its futility.  I try to remain optimistic yet I see no viable solution to avoid COA#4 unless free men are willing to become slaves.  My sons are preparing and training for COA #4.

The second they started screaming "Allah Akhbar" I would have drawn my side arm ready to shoot.  Sorry, I know that sounds bad, but "Allah Akhbar" is usually followed by BOOM!
