Yesterday, after the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, I had the feeling that although the newspapers were touting “this manhunt is over”, I knew deep down that it was not. The groups that he and many disenfranchised like him belong to do not exist as a “club” of “individuals”, rather, they seem to be linked and connected in such a way as to achieve their greater goal – the destruction of Western Civilization.
Abdeslam was captured coming out of a building only 100 yards from where, the police believe, he had hidden immediately after fleeing Paris four months ago and barely a 10-minute walk from his mother’s house. In other words, he was hiding in plain sight. The greater population and the police just did not see him, perhaps because people tend to see only what they want to see or what is most like them.
Here is a reality, just as in Germany, Muslim cultures imported wholesale into Western societies are viewed through the eyes of the Western host country. The liberal Western mindset is inherently lazy. Why do I say this? Because it is easier to take YOUR OWN view of people, places and incidents and place YOUR view and YOUR values upon another culture rather than learning about the other culture and even recognizing THEIR values and motivations.
For example, the New York Times stated in regards to “Mr. Abdeslam”: ” Mr. Abdeslam was a frightened young man who got in over his head or a determined terrorist who continued to plot further assaults up until he was captured.”
Frightened young man? Ummm I think not. I don’t think he is any more frightened than the “young refugee men” who raped blonde German girls over the last New Years holiday in Germany . Heck, Angela Merkel determined might need sexual etiquette lessons so developed friendly films and bright posters. Or the couple in San Bernardino, California who waited until their work associates were gathered for a holiday party and then blew them away. We sat around ruminating “their motivation” and some in the media even surmised the white people were bullying them because they were Muslim. Then they found out about the wedding and baby showers that were thrown on the behalf of the murderous duo. Then …nothing …. just a fight over the rights of phone privacy for the assassins. We need to make sure their privacy is respected so we shan’t open the phone.
Nah, Salah Abdeslam, 26, handled logistics for the Paris attackers. He was the fixer, renting cars, finding apartments, picking people up and dropping them off. He was a smart guy, not a frightened “deer in the headlights”. AND he came from a family of “fighters”. His brother Ibrahim — was among the attackers and blew himself up in a Paris cafe. BTW, don’t think Momma and the rest of the family did not know what their two 20 -something sons/siblings and family members were doing. It does not work that way in immigrant families.
Now, this morning we wake up to explosions in Belgium and the newscasters sit around, staring into the cameras wondering “Could this be related?” Where is Sherlock Holmes when we need him? It is Western Civilization that is truly afraid – of being “politically incorrect”. Afraid to believe that these young men and women are not freighted little bunnies, they instead have their own set of values, goals and motivations. And they know the weakness of Western Civilization is arrogance clothed in cultural laziness and cowardice – otherwise known as political correctness. We believe that we are the only “smart guys”, and as such we are the the only ones that can victimize, other cultures are at our mercy….. right…. wrong. And it is neither “racist” nor “fascist” to realize and acknowledge this. There is an arrogance in superiority.
And they know that eventually we will give them the key to our civilization, they will not have to take it away. So to answer the million dollar question, “Could this be related?” – um yes…. probably. It was also coordinated and one might add symbolical.
Why symbolical? Because it should have sent chills up and down your spine that one “package” blew up behind or next to the American Airlines counter. Almost like a calling card – “see ya soon”!
t’s see how they try to link this to Donald Trump.
