Apathy is Apathetic

Reader comment on item: 'Real' Enemy Defined

We live in dangerous times indeed, yet to observe and take stock of people in the streets, anybody would have thought everything in the garden was lovely: full stomachs, nice cars and houses, plenty of jobs (for now), fully stocked shops; politics don't matter anymore so why bother? ‘Besides my schedule is far too busy and I have to get my priorities right don't I? I mean I just don't have the time anymore, do I to think about wider issues in my busy life, anyway what can I do?'

Nearly two years ago 52 people died in London at the behest of two or three suicide bombers nursing a huge grudge against those they saw as their enemies. In 2001, on September 11th aircraft rammed into the Twin Towers, killing 3,000 more people that those suicide pilots nursed a grudge against. And again in Madrid, 200 people died because other bombers nursed a grudge against them as well. Those that survived in their thousands and thousands through each of the above incidents will either be scarred and disfigured for life, often without limbs or at the very least suffer damaged minds. These struggle daily to exist and to understand why individuals or groups attacked them in this way: people they did not know and never likely to. Even more people (the wider population) not involved with these terrible atrocities pretend they do not exist: ‘It's not my problem is it?' they say to themselves, ‘Besides the NHS can take care of them can't it? The victims live in a Nether World they thought they would never see, ‘Because it will never happen to us will it?' Well it did.

Those people have lost everything, their limbs, their jobs and even homes, even friends and relatives unable to face up to the fact that these ‘partial' people they once knew as ‘whole' people, that are not ‘complete' people anymore. Yes they sympathise and feel sorry for them but ‘It's not really

From Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of maimed and wounded soldiers have returned home to similar fates like those victims above in the United States and Britain. In the latter country especially, these have received cursory treatment by a National Health Service that has no experience of war and fatalities, so is ignorant of the care these soldiers need, military hospitals sold off long ago to fund New Labour's schemes to re-engineer society and Gordon Brown's grasping tax and spend itchy fingers. The money is spent instead, on pet political causes like asylum seekers, homosexual groups, various other minority causes, drug addicts and criminals: one all seen as ‘Victims of Society'. And don't forget the billions of pounds sterling spent on the great issue of ‘Global Warming' that most serious academics regard as utter nonsense. Na├»ve morons in their millions have fallen for this last confidence trick of confidence trickery. Meanwhile victims of Moslem terrorists sit alone in dingy flats and rooms, forgotten by a complacent world concerned only with this latest fashion or gimmick, oblivious to the suffering of these souls…'After all it's not

The bombers thought they were ‘Victims of Society' as well, because they blamed

Yet people get upset, when night after night Moslems are seen in every News headline. Time and again Moslem ‘community leaders', give their opinions and are consulted by an appeasing fawning government. The victims of the atrocities are never even mentioned, forgotten in the rush for sensationalism and mass unwillingness to face the appalling reality of the Islamic bombers' victims' ‘inconvenient' wounds and daily suffering.

Yet people complain that they are tired of seeing Moslems given such attention. Every day some Moslem demands this and then that, like the girl that wants to wear the veil and burka in class or the Moslem Council's demands for Sharia law in all British schools where Moslems attend. British people seethe between their clenched teeth but seething doesn't get things to change does it? While people seethe, they just seethe and no more! Seething needs to be turned into unseething action and protest: political protest too.

And it is because people just seethe and think nothing can change for the better, or that they will be prosecuted for speaking out, or ‘It is not

It does not take millions or even thousands to win such a war (and we are at war), just a few hundred in fact: history tells us so time and again. Hundres of societies from the past were subdued by militants in the few hundreds and an apathetic society, over concerned with their own survival than that of their countries. Ancient empires like Rome and Persia and more modern ones like the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, relied upon this fact to win, as does the modern Imperialist Islamic Facsist Movement of Al Quaeda, likewise aided as it is by an ignorant complacent western population and appeasing ideologue politicians with their own selfish agendas.

In the days of Dante, the Italian city republics were controlled and held in Mafia like fear by perhaps, less than one percent of the population. Fear is the greatest WMD (Weapon of Mass Delusion) of all. The ancient Greek city states were also held to ransom by a few oligarchs that likewise utilised violence and the resultant fear to maintain control and the Moslems are doing the same now in Britain, Europe and the United States.

Hitler was superb at this kind of tactic. The man was a genius in fact, even if an evil one. He was excellent at playing the ‘victim' but went one stage further, he identified himself with Germany as a national victim. And who was to blame? Everybody else but the Germans! The result, six years of carnage, six millions of Jews, 30,000 Russians and millions of others we don't know about.

British society acted in much the same way it does now. Politicians pandered to and appeased Hitler and Germany as a ‘Victim of European Society' and the people in the street either could not care less or lambasted those like Churchill that clearly warned where such behaviour would lead. Today we face a more terrible enemy still in militant Islam, because there are millions more Moslems than Germans all playing at being ‘Victims of Western Society' and a western politically correct elite, behaving in exactly the same way as they did in respect of Hitler and Germany. The result will be the same of course. Millions of deaths that could have been avoided if people had cared enough at the right time to do something about such a situation but stupid people never learn.

An empirical statistical historical research showed that the price of Islam in human non-Islamic lives amounts to 300,000,000! Considering that the population of the world, was not much less over much of the thousand or so years of its benighted existence, this is genocide on the grand scale and even Hitler and Mao Tse Tung and others have nowhere, nearly been so utterly efficient in killing innocent lives in pursuit of their arrogant beliefs. Mohammed founded a ethnic cleansing machine of all ethnic cleansing machines: like one fireman in New York asked a colleague, ‘How many Christians dead lay in the rubble of the Twin Towers?' and received the reply, ‘every damned one of them!'

This time though, the West is done for! The illness is terminal unless a huge reawakening occurs in narrow hedonistic Western consciousness, beguiled by the sirens of 60 years of peace and plenty. Unless we act Sharia law, that already exists in Britain and the

my problem is it? And the NHS experts can deal with them anyway…I mean we pay them to do that don't we now?'my problem is it? It is the responsibility of Society to take care of them not us isn't it?their ills on British and American Society… It was never our problem. Or as one alone might say…‘It is not my problem is it? It is the fault of the infidels that Moslems suffer. It is not the fault of Moslems at all of course, it's the fault of the infidels! No it never is my fault, it is always somebody else's isn't it? It is always to blame an abstract ‘somebody else'!my problem', or ‘I don't do politics!', or are just too busy with their ‘lifstyle' that their ‘quality time' is taken up already too much to be involved with political and national matters of concern, that the Moslems are winning! And they are with a vengeance!Dhimminitude of the indigenous population will be the result. Our descendants will surely curse us because we were too stupid, complacent and selfish to do anything at the time we needed to do something to defend ourselves. The word ‘dim' by the way comes from Latin Diminus, as does ‘dhimminitude', meaning to make lesser or to exist as less and from where our English words to demean and diminish stem.

Think on that when you are not too ‘busy' perhaps? The innocent victims of Islamic atrocity have plenty of time of course! And of course it is all

their fault isn't it as our elite and their Moslem ‘Victims of Society' keep telling us all!
