WHERE DO WE STAND ON ISLAMIC TERRORISTS MURDING INNOCENT PEOPLE? – Once again the British people are thrown in turmoil over the brutal and savage murder of Lee Rigby by Michael Adebolajo; a radicalized Islamic terrorist whose acts where guided by the likes of Anjem Choudary, Anwar al-Awlaki, Abu Qatada, Abu Hamza al-Masri and other Muslim hate preachers who are allowed to stand on street corners and spill their vile messages of hate towards all things Western; and yet they all choose to live in our free society.
Less we forget… I want you to take a moment and look at the images below and ask yourself; could we have prevented this?
I think the last message says so much “So very sorry” because I honestly believe this message clearly shows we all played a terrible role in the murder of Lee Rigby.
There is nobody I know who would be capable of such a heinous act against another human being and yet we continuously read and hear of extremist Muslim hate preachers who openly glorify these acts of atrocities and continue to call upon Muslims to take up Jihad against the innocent.
The question posed in the title, I think, is an apt one but also one that has been answered so many times. There is no room for doubt that the British people have had enough and each time a terrorist takes another innocent life we rally and unite in condemning such acts but ask yourself; what really changes?
An 85 years old woman stood at a bus stop yesterday and watched Muslims entering a Mosque to pray. She was incensed with grief of the murder of Lee Rigby and could no longer stay silent and therefore began a tirade of abuse in which she also shouted “Why don’t you all go back home?”
Police officers were dispatched and after talking with the woman for a time they then handcuffed her and took her away; someone reported that a number of the Muslims stood laughing.
As many of my readers will know I have many Muslim friends; and each and every one of them has condemned the murder of Lee Rigby and any acts of violence or terrorism.
Looking at this from a different perspective; how many times has a terrorist attack occurred in the UK only to be quickly condemned by the Muslim community? Is this really a case of ‘smoke and mirrors’ in order to deflect responsibility? Some feel that while Muslims may condemn and deplore these acts in the mainstream it appears they at least know those responsible but do little to prevent it.
Someone asked me to ask these questions; “How many Muslims help the security forces to track and locate Muslim terrorists? If Muslims are so offended by acts of terrorism why do we not hear more about how Muslims are helping the authorities to end the terrorist activities?
The truth is that there are, at any one time, a number of covert operations carried out in the UK to prevent such atrocities and there are Muslim communities who are helping the authorities with their enquiries. These operations have to remain covert in order to protect people, including the Muslim sources.
We simply cannot go about with a bucket of tar and feathers and cover every Muslim; it is wrong and unjustifiable; especially if we want to maintain any form of civilized society.
So what can or should we do?
By nature I’m a conservative and try to deal with issues on a rational level. I often find the Right-Wing attitude highly offensive in that we should just pack them all on a plane and send them back home.
The night after Lee’s murder the English Defence League (EDL) took to the streets and engaged in a number of violent acts against Mosques. This is of course unlawful and should not be condoned in any manner; there is already a high degree of unlawfulness in the UK without adding to it.
For starters Anjem Choudary is British born. Yes he may well hate us and wish to kill every one of us but it doesn’t alter the fact that he is home – so the Right-Wing view is simply ridiculous.
Going to the other end of the spectrum we have the Left-Wing and their idea of Utopia is the rule of ‘Shut Up’ in that anyone who even thinks about eradicating these social issues is either a bigot or a racist; they simply refuse to listen to reason or even engage in open dialogue that could resolve many of the issues we have in Britain today.
My view is that we need to change a number of things and one of these is preventing our Government to use our security forces, such as the Police and MI5, as scapegoats every time a terrorist act occurs on British soil.
What we need is to take a sensible approach to terrorism and recognize it for what it truly is; that being an act of war.
We continuously label these acts as ‘terrorism’ not for the purpose of informing people that other groups are trying to terrorize us but rather so that the true meaning is deflected. The stark truth is these acts are indeed terrorizing but they are primarily acts of war.
Unfortunately our Government doesn’t want it depicted that way as this would suggest that enemy combatants have infiltrated British soil and carrying out their acts of war upon us.
The Muslim Brotherhood; the ones who promote and support Jihad, purport, as does Anjem Choudary, that the ‘war’ will continue until such a time where the British are not present in any Muslim country; notably Afghanistan and Iraq.
Quite honestly Anjem Choudary has a point, although his methods of dealing with the issue is completely wrong. We often complain that we are being taken over by Muslims and we don’t like it. On this assumption is it really so hard to understand why the likes of Anjem Choudary is offended by our presence in Afghanistan?
Let’s be frank, the Russians tried to take of Afghanistan, the Americans have tried to wipe out Al Qaeda along with the British and yet we have failed miserably. Why? Because these people don’t want saving from their oppressive regime and what right do we have to ram democracy down the throats of those who do not want it?
This leads me to the possible solutions:
No.1 Pull out of Afghanistan, Iraq and any other Muslim country where we are not wanted.
No.2 Change the laws, removing the ECHR and Human Rights Act, so that we may empower our security services to hunt down and bring to trial the likes of Anjem Choudary or acts of terrorism and treason.
No. 3 Reinstate the death penalty for acts of terrorism and treason.
No. 4 Produce a Government declaration that clearly points out measures that the UK will no longer interfere with any Muslim state and remove all foreign aid.
No. 5 Provide legislation that any act of terrorism of British soil or British interests globally would be seen as a direct act of war in which retribution would be swift and decisive.
These five points above could, if executed properly, wipe out terrorism in the UK; in fact Point 1 would immediately prevent Muslims from having any excuse to execute any form of terrorist act against the United Kingdom.
The five measures, in my view, are balanced; it’s about give and take and about respecting our cultural differences.
While we often find the barbaric acts in Afghanistan, notably against women, deplorable we must learn to respect that this is their culture and their country. We must learn to stop interfering with other countries issues, especially in the light that we are barely able to deal with our own.
Do you have suggestions and ideas that could stop the Jihad war in the UK? Do you feel that our liberalism is preventing us from taking measures that could so easily prevent acts of war in the UK? Have your say… leave your comments below.
