Paris Attacks—Needed and Unneeded Responses
For the second time in a year, Paris has been the scene of murderous attacks by Islamic terrorists.
What we don’t need:
Pious words of sympathy and support by politicians, particularly by one who, days before, evidenced his epic lack of understanding and judgment by saying that ISIS terrorists were being “contained.” If it weren’t so tragic, it would be comic. Friends and family members of the fallen and injured are not comforted by political posturing; if anything, it makes their loss more bitter. Obama and the Ketchup Consort would be better advised to shut the fuck up and await the moment when the public’s notoriously short memory span will forget just how thoroughly they have mismanaged foreign affairs since their installation.
Micro dissection of the details of the attack and consequent carnage on the part of the media. It’s ghoulish.
What we need:
An intelligent recognition of why Islamic terrorism is happening. The fact is that these savages are under the impression that it is the West, not they, who are evil. They consider their terrorism as self-defense, a concept that is honored not only in the West but also by Islam. Somehow, these terrorists must learn by aggressive educational initiatives, that whatever imagined crimes the West has leveled against them pale in comparison to the aggression they are perpetrating. As Israel’s leader wisely put it, if Islam stopped attacking, peace would prevail in the area; if Israel laid down their weapons, the country would be wiped off the map, as Islam’s demented leaders have hoped and posited as objectives.
Selective immigration policies regarding refugees. It’s insanity for any country to allow entry to un-vetted individuals whether designated as refugees or not. Entry into France, Germany, Italy, the U.S. or any other civilized country whose citizens have worked diligently to create a prosperous and civilized way of life is NOT a human right that any foreigner can exercise.
