More outrageous than 9/11, Galves?

"Those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it."

And then again, "Perhaps you can teach the blind to see, but you cannot teach those who pretend to be blind."

--The truth of these aphorisms in the context of advancing jihad, worldwide, indicates that Europe may be truly doomed. For what could be more spectacularly outrageous than the 9/11 attack against America? The whole world was traumatised by that event, and Europe is already burying its head in the sand with the flames having landed on its shores.

As for Nazism, it is important not to forget its natural allies, or axis -- if you so prefer. Many euphemisms continue to be used by established scholars to protect the 'innocents' among the readers. But the jihadis have secret sympathisers, even at this late stage, it would seem. It is those who are trying to fight the confusion are the ones who are in greater danger of being dismissed in the media and in public.

It is truly surprising to see the outlines of a classic alliance between the left, the human rights advocates and those professing and supporting the terrorist ideology. I wish to write elsewhere on this site about the curious methodology of jihad that seems to sap the will and reason of its victims, as it begins to bare its poisonous fangs...

Jihad will be defeated through cold logic, firm resolve and surgical excision, fearless applied. We have no choice. But never forget that we are all connected in this. Bringing in narrow one-upmanship through underhand nationalist, racist or denominational goals instead of a united front will be self-defeating. The question is, can we trust the leading decision makers at a time like this?
