The Sydney Cafe Tragedy, are we now at war?

Is there a day that goes by without some new Islamic terror attack? It would take up too many pages of closely written text to list every atrocity in the name of Allah that has been perpetrated in 2014 from ISIS beheadings to Boko Haram kidnappings and killings, slaying of devout Jews at morning prayers and now 20 people held hostage in a Lindt cafe in downtown Sydney.

These acts of terror fill our 24/7 news channels, we hear the so called experts give explanations as to why these acts take place, we hear the politicians informing us that they are doing everything in their power to either prevent these acts happening or to ensure the safe release of the hostages and we occasionally hear from the moderate Muslim’s that these people don’t act in the real name of Islam, they are deluded and have been indoctrinated by ‘rouge’ Imam’s. Whatever the reasons behind these acts of terror, whatever the excuses it is the fault of the so called ‘civilised’ world that this terror continues. I ask where is the appetite to stop it?

Recently I looked at the United Nations web site to see what the UN or the Director General or the Security Council or any other part of this organisation was saying about Islamic Terror, you know what I found? Absolutely nothing, diddley squat, zilch, zero. Sure the UN is concerned about Ebola that has killed around 5,000 people in Africa and the UN is absolutely disgusted with how Israel treats the Palestinians and how 2000 died this summer however what does the UN have to say about Islamic terror that some estimate has killed well in excess of 150,000 this year alone? You guessed it, absolutely nothing, diddley squat, zilch, zero.

Now lets move on to Western democratic governments, what do they do. Well the US is conducting air strikes against ISIS but is confused because these strikes may actually do a favour to President Assad in Syria so what effect have these strikes actually had? And I ask myself why are the US on the one hand conducting air strikes against an Islamic terror organisation who go about killing anyone who isn’t in agreement with their particular doctrine and yet on the other hand the US is conducting negotiations with Iran over nuclear power (its actually nuclear weapons) and Iran are the major sponsors of state supported Islamic terror world-wide?

In real terms the West hasn’t a clue how to deal with the rise of Islamic terror. The West hasn’t a clue how it should deal with the rise of its Muslim populations which in time will lead to numerous European countries with an Islamic majority According to the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, Global Muslim populations are growing at 1.5% annually compared to non Muslims at 0.7%. What can Western Christian countries do about this, is it a time bomb whose fuse has already been lit?

As I write this the siege in Sydney has just ended with reportedly two civilians dead and also dead is the animal that had these innocents held as hostage for over 16 hours. Good news for all those free and an appalling way for the family and friends of those dead to commence the Christmas holiday season. Once again we will hear from the politicians that they are doing everything to keep us safe, that is until the next time some ‘radical’ decides to take the law into their own hands and kill in the name of Allah.

For me there is only one answer to protect the democratic world from global Islamic terror and that is to have a zero tolerance towards it. A zero tolerance to Islamic terror on a domestic and world-wide scale. A zero tolerance commences with it being the responsibility of the Muslim family to ensure that their nearest and dearest aren’t radicalized and collective punishment if they are. In the second world war in Britain if you had a German sounding surname you were interned, in this war if you have an Islamic fundamentalist in your family then its your responsibility to ensure they are held to account and you suffer the consequences if they aren’t.

On an international basis the West should end all co-operation with any state that sponsors terror no matter what the consequences. This includes Qatar and Iran. We should stop importing their oil and gas and stop exporting our technology and brains. The UN needs to have the power to dismiss any state that is found guilty of sponsoring terror, indeed its own charter states

“Membership in the United Nations is open to all peace-loving states which accept the obligations contained in the present Charter and, in the judgment of the Organization, are able and willing to carry out these obligations.”

Such a shame that the UN doesn’t actually practice what it preaches!

Islamic fundamentalists appear to want Sharia Law, they wish to live under laws and customs that date back to the dark ages, well if that’s the case then why not let them live in the dark? No modern technology for them, no modern health care, no modern food or methods of agriculture and certainly no IT.

I for one am sick and tired of the continuous diatribe of liberal fools who believe that with more understanding, more knowledge and more consideration we in the West will come to understand and accept Islam for what it is. Indeed if there was peace between Israel and the Palestinians then this will definitely end Islamic terror is their mantra and yet nothing could be further from the truth. The Islamic fundamentalist only exists on this earth in order to bring Islam to those unbelievers, the infidels and to murder those who don’t comply. As such todays tragedy in Sydney will be repeated and repeated and repeated until the World once and for all decides to take radical action.
