What to Do About the Latest Islamist Atrocity?

The first thing is to recognise that the atrocity is Islamist, and not Muslimist. It is time that our politicians stopped mouthing platitudes.

I watched the concert at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground tonight featuring Arianda Grande on TV. Emotion abounded. In fact, the event was drowning in emotion. But it was still a great event. Why? Because so many people defied the Islamists and attended the event without fear.

I shall say again, and again, and again, that we have to differentiate between ‘Muslimism’ and ‘Islamism’. We need simple concepts so that we know, as a group of Englishmen, who are the enemy of our Nation.  When an atrocity occurs in Scotland or Wales or Northern Ireland, those Nations too will have to differentiate.

‘Muslimism’ is a religion, and exists in the mind. ‘Islamism’ is not a religion. It is a secular, ‘caliphate’ – an Empire – a Kingdom – an occupied territory.

I think that it is true that England, and the English, will continue to be attacked by Islamists until our ‘Thinkers’ work out what measures are needed to hammer the Islamists in our midst into the ground. Politicians have no idea.

I would like to see ‘Thinkers’ on TV talking about these things. But it will not happen. Such ‘Thinkers’ would include ‘Muslimists’. Even ‘Islamists’ might appear, although I doubt it.

I read an interesting but long article tonight by John Pilger. He used to be well-regarded, but seems to have been retired. Perhaps he is retired. Here is the link:


It is a long article which purports to describe the deliberate association of US and British ‘Secret Service’ with the encouragement of unrest all over the Middle East, especially support for ISIS etc in order to overthrow Gadaffi in Libya because of Gadaffi’s intention to unite certain African countries which were oil-rich. Money, money, money.

There is something wrong which eludes us. We cast about in our minds to ‘feel for’ what is wrong. What is wrong with being a Muslim? What is wrong with being a Catholic? Both ‘creeds’ have behavioural controls. “Thou shalt not….”

What is wrong? What is it that eludes me?

    Back about five hundred years ago Queen Elizabeth, having succeeded to the throne, reaffirmed her father’s dismissal of the Roman Papacy and her (and her successors) sovereign right to be head of the Church of England. This placed her in a difficult position. All the other States of Europe still affirmed fealty to Rome (excepting some of the German Principalities and “Belgium”.
    Where to turn to for trade? To whom could she appeal for aid against a “Europe” united against a Protestant England?
    She opened trade with the Caliphate in Constantinople (soon to be Istanbul) – the dread enemy of all Christendom (or so Rome held it to be).
    At that time the Sunni sect was triumphant in Islam and England became an ally.
    So set the stage for the ensuing half millennium.
    The English speaking peoples have been uneasy allies to those Muslim States that adhere to the Sunni sect.
    But…. In this present time the Shia sect has gained quite a bit of power, both political and economic.
    These present conflicts, though distant in time from the days of Shakespeare, are being molded by the same conflicts within Islam.
    Have no doubt that the US is aiding the Saudi kingdom in sowing terror among any people who might side with the Shia dominated States and Russia is taking the opposite side.
    The “Cold War” was but another proxy battle between ancient enemies and while the US and the USSR seemed to be “super powers” they were really participants in a battle between Sunni and Shia and Catholics and Protestants.

    I don’t like it Sam, but accept your analysis if it is based upon evidence. There are many more Muslim sects than are prominent, but that may only mean much the same as religious orders, such as Benedictine monks and Trappist monks. We do not know.
    What is weird is that, after decades of time, our ‘Secret Service’ does not know who the enemy, which causes the atrocities, is or where it is.
    I have been saying, in my humble way, let the various sects of Islamism fight it out amongst themselves. Do not interfere, even if oil supplies are in danger. Let them fight it out. Do not favour one side or the other. Whichever side wins, it will then have to deal with the consequences. And do not flood the Islamist territory with aid. Let the consequences unfold. If starvation ensues, and the West feels impelled to ‘do something’, then drop small parcels of food in vast quantities over the location. That idea is akin to ‘quantitative easing’ by helicopters spreading $ notes over a city.

    Lines must drawn. During the present emergency, we have heard nothing about the Calais Jungle. Has it disappeared?

      I see that you are ‘following’. I hope that you enjoy my rather philosophical musings.
