ISIS Attack on Paris In Perspective

ISIS Attack on Paris In Perspective

Let me apologize in advance for my emotional tone, but this is ridiculous. Let me also say that my thoughts go out to those affected by this horrible incident. Still, there are a few lessons that we need to learn from this ISIS attack on Paris, while it is still fresh in our minds and while we still have a chance. The first is that things are never as they appear. The second is that the world is never safe and you should act accordingly.

But we should also understand that we are either being lied to or simply setup. Maybe our leaders are naïve, maybe we are naïve. Maybe much of this is all part of some elaborate scheme. Or maybe too many in power simply don’t understand the threat that we face. The 3 Rule method tells us that it’s probably a little bit of all of these. Regardless, our options (as citizens) are being reduced by the day because many still want to believe that “mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries“. Don’t be fooled.

Let’s begin this conversation with the idea that this is not a racist conversation. This is about radical religion. If you are not mature or rational enough to have to this conversation without crying about it, please take the time to click that big “X” in the upper right hand corner of your screen. This conversation is about the threat of radical Islam, but we need to know that Islam is made up of many different races. This is also something important to consider because sometimes you can’t just pick out a Muslim from the crowd – let alone a radical one. For instance, both Dr. Oz and musician Everlast are both Muslims – though more than likely not radicals.

Again, and for the sake of argument, let us understand that not all Muslims are radicals. But let us also be real: pretending for a moment that only 10% of all Muslims believed in or supported radical ideologies; that would still equate to some 157,000,000 radicals globally. Or let’s pretend it is just 1% that believed in or supported radical ideologies; that’s still 15,700,000. This attack in Paris was carried out by less than 10. And when you factor in the idea that French citizens do not have the right to defend themselves against such attackers, it is really not hard to imagine where things might be going for much of the world; maybe even parts of the United States.

Radical religion (of any kind) has been an issue for thousands of years. Our leaders not only seem naïve about it, but they also seem overly confident they can handle or control it. This is a big problem. It honestly reminds me of how Rome thought they could contain the Christians. For those who are unaware; they couldn’t.

Let me also make this abundantly clear: France was warned ahead of time of this recent attack. It still happened. Ironically, many are completely unaware that not even a year prior, there was another attack in France now dubbed the Charlie Hebdo shooting; another tragic attack carried out by radical Muslims. But that attack followed weeks of warnings from French and foreign officials as well; saying that the threat had risen to unprecedented levels. So that’s two major attacks in the same year on the same nation; both preceded by warnings that few wanted to hear. But you need to know that the same warnings include our name and our leaders seem oblivious.

Hours before the deadly mass shooting in Paris began, Obama was on television stating that “we have contained them” – in regard to Islamic State. Well, clearly “they” haven’t. Islamic State officially claimed responsibility for the attack and described the attack as “eight brothers wrapped in explosive belts and armed with machine rifles targeted sites that were accurately chosen in the heart of the capital of France, including the Stade de France during the match between the Crusader German and French teams, where the retard of France, Francois Hollande, was present.

From those who survived and were present during the attacks, it was stated that the attackers were saying things like “Allah Akbar” and “This is for Syria”. According to reports, at least one of the attackers was found with a Syrian passport and was a registered refugee who had recently passed through Greece. This should be a wake-up call for Americans because the obvious is shaking you. The same “refugees” are coming here, and ISIS is threatening attacks on our soil.

Report after report has warned of Syrian fighters embedding themselves among refugees throughout the world. Few governments wanted to hear it – including our own. As it turns out, there are evidently some issues weeding out Syrian fighters from regular refugees. Still, mindless state supporters have lined up to ridicule, smear, or attack anyone who has suggested something other than the government line. As previously written, people like Travis Gettys from the blog “Raw Story”, and the Southern Poverty Law Center are just a couple of the most recent examples of those who attack anyone who tries to suggest that relocating refugees might be a bad idea – in spite of the evidence.

Do you remember Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who was convicted of fatally shooting 13 people and injuring 32 others in the Fort Hood mass shooting on November 5, 2009? Well he was screaming “Allah Akbar” while he carried out his shooting, but our government considered this workplace violence, not Islamic terrorism. Another example might be Alan Nolen, a man who had recently converted to Islam. He evidently had “some sort of infatuation with beheadings,” and apparently uttered Arabic words while he killed his 54-year-old co-worker Colleen Hufford, severing her head. Then he turned his attention to another co-worker who thankfully survived. Again, our government called this workplace violence too, not Islamic Terrorism. Clearly, our leaders don’t get it… or, maybe they just don’t want you to.

While these two examples may not have been a part of ISIS, I think it shows both the dedication of radical Islam, and the naivety of our leadership. This should raise a few flags for most considering that ISIS has proved itself to be more methodical, more organized, more strategic, very patient, and even more dedicated than what many are being led to believe. What I want to convey to you is that you should expect similar attacks in the United States moving forward; probably sooner rather than later. For a number of reasons honestly.

To begin with, such attacks here are not exactly rare. There have been at least 69 actual or attempted terrorist attacks (that we know of) on American soil since 9/11. This trend isn’t slowing. And while all of these actual or attempted attacks were not ISIS, the vast majority carried some element of radical Islam.

Judicial Watch reported that the FBI has nearly 1,000 active probes involving the terrorist group Islamic State currently going on INSIDE the United States already! But what have they missed? We have also heard about ISIS camps just a few miles away from the Texas border. True or not, we know that our border isn’t a border at all, and our Border Patrol isn’t allowed to do their job anyway. So what has been missed here? The answer to both of these questions is “probably quite a bit” and we probably will not know until it’s too late.

And in spite of these facts, our government still seeks to keep our borders open, chastise and continue the march against the ownership of firearms among citizens, and all while they simply import more Syrian “refugees” into our communities, knowing full well that there are “gaps” in their vetting process and that some Syrian fighters are getting through. It’s almost like they want something horrible to happen. Perhaps they do.

Consider this; in January of 2015, Sen. Dianne Feinstein told CNN that “I think there are sleeper cells not only in France but certainly in other countries and, yes, in our own.” You must realize how bad it is if even she is saying such things. But when a concerned citizen says it, it’s considered “racist” or conspiracy? 11 months later, look at what happened. Should we not assume the worst by now?

Understand that in spite of the fact that Islamic State is clearly not contained, the Obama administration is actually attempting to speed up the arrival of more Syrian refugees here in the States in spite of opposition; not slow it down or stop it like he should. In fact, he’s opening up new “screening” centers in Iraq and Lebanon to expedite the process, (and again) in spite of the fact that “Federal authorities admit that gaps do exist in screening Syrian refugees”. Sure, a successful attack on American soil would bolster support for further action, but this is simply unacceptable. Why are we inviting potential combatants into our homeland during a war? This is a serious question that you should attempt to answer for yourself.

If you cannot envision a future where more of these attacks are carried out on American soil, then you are simply not looking at the evidence, or history. Maybe you are not considering cause and effect, or you are extremely naïve – just like our leaders. Regardless, the question is really more about “why”? Why are our leaders doing this to us? Why do they seem so dedicated to the idea of putting us in as much danger as possible, while at the same time, attempting to leave us helpless to do anything about it? Evidently, authorities could not or did not contain or stop what happened in France any more than our government could or would stop what happened in Boston or Fort Hood. They know this. You know this. So why do we act as though the obvious is not true and why do we not carry ourselves accordingly?

What I find particularly disturbing is that meanwhile, organizations across the United States who are dedicated to protecting themselves and their communities, are the ones being singled out as terrorists. Seriously? Think about that for a moment. Nadal Hassan, a government employee, murders multiple people on government property, in an incident motivated by radical religion, and our government only considers it an act of workplace violence. Yet people who have never done a single thing to harm anyone in this country and have merely decided to arm up in defense of their Constitution, communities and state (where our government simply won’t) – and pit themselves against groups like dangerous cartels, ISIS, racists, rioters, etc. – are being considered radicals, extremists, and potential domestic terrorist threats? I am sorry, but something is really wrong here and we seriously need to reexamine our priorities as a nation.

Our government’s position and goals seem clear. Unfortunately, they do not appear to include our safety, our Constitutional Rights, or any concern for our future as a nation. Their position and/or goal seems more about allowing horrible situations to occur that create opportunities to advance their power while reducing our liberties. Perhaps we should have seen this when news of Project Gunrunner and/or Operation Fast and Furious first broke – or any number of other things I’m sure we could all list here (like Operation Northwoods).

But knowing all this doesn’t stop the coming threat. It is obvious that our government’s interests do not align with those who have an interest in protecting or preserving our way of life. Our government doesn’t seem interested in stopping growing ISIS threat already in our country or even the ISIS threat being relocated into our communities. This is easily observable through their actions, and to deny this is to deny the obvious.

Don’t be confused or scared. Be angry. Be prepared.

Updated 11/17/2015

It has come to my attention that there are numerous states that have begun to deny any (or any more) refugees. Kudos to those states for the attempt. But be forewarned: even if the states win that legal battle, it should also be noted that such opposition is really all for nothing. This is because once a refugee is in the U.S. (regardless of where they land/live), they have the right to move freely throughout the United States like everyone else. The threat remains and they are already here.
