Life is a Bomb

Good news for those of you who enjoy taking your shoes off in airports. Al-Qaeda's chief bombmaker, a cheerful fellow named Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, who sent his younger brother off on a suicide bombing mission with a bomb up his rectum, has been working on turning everything into a bomb. Cameras, printer cartridges and even pets.

The good news is that al-Asiri isn't very good at it. His bomb did a good job of killing his brother, but not much else. The original underwear bomb worn by the Christmas bomber didn't work out. The bad news is that with enough cannon fodder and enough attempts, sooner or later al-Asri or another college dropout will get it right. But even if he doesn't, the force multiplier of the threat alone will do the job.

All it took was one shoe bomber to get us to take off our shoes. A failed plan to blow up airliners with liquid explosives led to the liquid ban. In the age of underwear bombs we have naked scanners. What is going to happen when the next plot involves explosives embedded in a laptop or surgically implanted in a pet?

A bomb anywhere is a bomb everywhere. When the bombs are everywhere, then so are the security measures taken against them until life is one big bomb and one giant security measure.

We may sooner or later hunt down al-Asiri and blow him away, but taking out a twenty-something graduate of a Saudi university after a long manhunt at a cost of countless millions of dollars will not be some grand achievement. There are plenty of Saudi, Kuwaiti and Pakistani chemistry students who can step into his place.

We are not fighting a war against toothpaste, shoes or underwear. Nor against bombs. Bombs after all don't make themselves or detonate themselves. That's what people are for and until we come to grips with the people making and detonating the bombs, then we will live in a world of bombs, where every item, no matter how innocuous, is treated as a potential explosive device, and every person in line as a potential explosive weapon.

The formula for fighting a War on Terror without defining a vector for that terror has led to a state of terror, in which everyone is either terrified or terrorized. The official word is that anyone and everyone can be a terrorist, and even though they all seem to be Muslim, the official position is that this is a complete coincidence, a misunderstanding of the religion of peace or a result of our foreign policy.

To believe any of these things is to also believe that history is bunk. Al-Asiri's last name indicates that he comes from the Asir province, the heartland of fanaticism in Saudi Arabia. Asir means "difficult" in Arabic. Six of the 9/11 hijackers came from Asir and Bin Laden praised its tribes as "forming the lion's share". Asir had been a source of violence and Islamic fanaticism long before American foreign policy mattered to anyone one outside the hemisphere. The Asiri Wahhabis had fought the Ottoman Empire in Asir going back to the early 1800's and then they fought the House of Saud. With global access, Asiris are able to extend their wars deep into our territory. To launch attacks well beyond their desert home.

It's not the bomb on the planes that are the problem, it's the planes themselves and what they carry. It is the transportation links that relay Muslims out of their lands and into our own. Muslims term their lands the Dar-al-Islam and our lands, the Dar-al-Harb, the realm of the sword. But the irony is that it is Islamic lands which are the true realm of the sword, forever in conflict, Muslim fighting Muslim, while repressing and enslaving Jews, Christians, Hindus and any other minorities under Muslim rule.

The sword has given way to the bomb, though it is still used occasionally on hostages, and by importing Islam we have imported the way of the sword and the rule of the bomb. When the followers of the sword take the plane, then sooner or later they will bomb the plane or use the plane as a guided missile. There is no avoiding that.

The other meaning of "Asir" is prisoner. Without transportation, Muslims in Asir were imprisoned in their barren unwelcoming land. Given transportation we have all become their prisoners. Terrorist threats are enough to turn us into prisoners being herded into lines. While every courtesy is given to the Sons of Asir, lest we infuriate them further, the native population is imprisoned by regulations crafted to resist the attacks of an enemy whose name may not be spoken.

Rather than terrorizing the terrorists, our governments terrorize us. They make us into the prisoners of an endless terror while they appease the terrorists. By failing to define a clear enemy, we have all been made into the enemy.

The raid is as indigenous to Arabia as its sand. As Islam has become indigenous to America and Europe, the raid is becoming indigenous to Western nations as well, and no game of 'three monkeys' will change that. Islam spread by sword and terror, it survived by sword and terror, and it thrives by sword and terror. The body count of those slain by Muslim terrorists has translated directly into a quantum increase in Muslim political influence. The Mohammedan religion, once obscure, is now at the helm of foreign and domestic policy. Every aspect of government all the way up to NASA is tasked with winning its followers over and defusing the ticking time bomb of their violence.

When we finally hunt down Ibrahim al-Asiri somewhere in Yemen, which once laid claim to Asir and has a history of contending with the House of Saud, among the tribes who have feuds and grudges as old as the desert sands, we will be nowhere closer to winning the War on Terror. Not so long as we have our heads stuck in those same sands.

Demographics alone dictate that there will be more young men to replace al-Asiri than there will be to replace the American men going off to war against his cronies. And in a polygamous society, even upper class young Saudi men are not only replaceable, they are competition for the harems of the Bin Ladens, the elderly men trying to make their paradise on earth with the help of Viagra and wealth. Many of these young men will have university educations and ample encouragement to join the Jihad to carve out more territory for the Dar-al-Islam.

Some will emigrate to London or New York and carve out professional roles for themselves while participating in Muslim political groups to build their influence. Others will make bombs or blow them up. Either way they will be doing what young men in the Arabian Desert have always done, raiding to expand the territory of Islam, and the prestige of their families and tribes.

It's easy to snicker at the discrepancy of force between al-Asiri, embedding his bombs in underwear and a jet plane, but the bomb can bring down the jet. And the Sons of Asir can bring down the West. All it takes is enough time and effort, and so long as we give them money and an open door, the Muslim world will have plenty of both.

The latest conquests of Islam may take a century to complete, but if the demographic trends continue, then they will cover the territory from the warm coasts of Spain to the frozen depths of Russia. The raids will soften up the lands of the sword, cut away their people, intimidate their governments into making concessions and use brute numbers to swarm them and become the majority. It has happened for over a thousand years, long before American foreign policy was anything more than a dream, and it is happening now. All around us.

The demographic bomb is the most explosive of all the devices and it doesn't show up on even the most intrusive airport scanners. Arafat called the womb of the Arab woman his strongest weapon. The House of Saud liked to say that they had built their nation with a sword of steel and a sword of flesh. These two quotes explain the miserable state of the Muslim woman and the quiet ticking of the demographic clock, the bomb whose components are veiled women, trundling in groups behind a single man, the girls exploited by Muslim 'Asian' sex gangs and the rising number of female converts.

The biggest component of the bomb by far is still the jet plane, the passing shape that can either be a direct weapon or an indirect one. Before the 9/11 hijackers could hijack domestic flights, they had to obtain permission to arrive here on international ones. As the domestic population increases, the next wave of terrorists, men like Nidal Malik Hasan, Tariq Menhanna or Anwar Al-Awlaki, don't even need the planes.

When the number of Muslims proliferates, so does the number of bombs; the kind that al-Asiri makes and the kind that Arafat and the House of Saud made. The kind that blow up right away and the kind that tick slowly away from generation to generation, embedding themselves into a society, undermining it, chipping away at its roots, until it is time for them to go off. But whatever kind of bombs they are, when they go off they destroy our lives and our freedoms. And when there are enough Muslims around us, then life is a bomb.

Unfortunately, we are not fighting a war at all, except perhaps against ourselves.

The growth of the Muslim population is already alerting a growing number of kafirs to find out what Muslims believe. When kafirs learn what Muslims believe, they are repulsed.

I teach my loved ones about the Koran. I send links to the Koran to every mover and shaker in my area. In fact, I sent a link to every member of the Canadian parliament. While only a few bothered to read the Koran, those that did were appalled and shocked that Islam was considered a religion.

If each of us spread the truth of the Koran, Muslims would undoubtedly complain, thus revealing themselves as a Fifth Column among us.

Wonderful article, without a single word being in excess.

The problem Daniel is that our political elites want the sheeple to be sitting on their couches watching "American Idol" or "Jersey Shore" or shopping mindlessly at the mall for items that they don't need. This is the modern equivalent of the Roman bread and circuses.

Once the public becomes engaged, focused, and aware of a problem that requires action, our politicians worry that the public's attention will turn to them next.

So, Hillary has to keep wearing that hijab!

Perhaps one day the muslim horde will finally get their wish and overrun everything, and with it bring the end of the arts, the decline of science (apart from bomb-making they aren't that inventive), the crushing of other religions and the denial of many freedoms from women's rights to gay marriage.

Well, we can say we deserve it for allowing it to get to this pitch.

However, what happens when the murderous ways of islam rule everything? Peace? Contentment? No chance, and they know it. You see, they will continue to be what they are. They will carry on plotting and murdering and maiming. After all most violent muslim deaths are caused by other muslims. They are incredibly intolerant of their own fellow believers.

The philosophy of islam is tribal, and that means always putting one lot of power crazed lunatics in charge of other tribes. Those from the other tribes who object to their 'leaders' will carry on killing, often in the name of allah. The savages merely change their targets and destroy because that's what the laughably-named 'religion of peace' does best.

In the meantime, all the submissive westerners who believe that the earth united under the black flag of the muslims will bring world peace will be disappointed to find first that they are removed at the edge of a sword and for the few who survive, they will see islam destroy itself.

After that? Well, no more islam, ever. And for that we should be eternally grateful. Sure, it's a high price to pay but for the few who remain the end will be worth it.

However getting there will see a long dark age that makes me shudder.

Art brought an end to itself long ago. It didn't need outside help for that.
The west began it's own slide and now the hordes are pouring in to help it along.

We are experiencing first hand mother nature's handy work.

Survival of the fittest, and the West is not even competing.

We deserve what we get. We stink...or should I say we did stink.

There is no solution except the complete separation of Islam and Muslims from the West or the non-Muslim world.

How to achieve this, is the real problem.

Heres'a sample of what they 'believe":
Blood Drinking
(excerpt from John Roy Carlson’s 1951 work, Cairo to Damascus
pp 225-227:

Ali looked at me intently, with a savage glint in his eyes which made me uncomfortable. We were along; he was armed, and I knew that I was no match for a man whom I felt instinctively was a killer…Ali opened up gradually, first by confessing that as a boy he had beaten a playmate to death because he caught him stealing. Growing up in a Cairo slum — with no schooling or formal training — Ali had developed a fanatic sense of right and wrong. All wrong was to be punished by death in order to end the progeny of wrongdoers and eliminate evil from the world.

“Who will determine what is right and wrong?” I asked.

“I make the judgment,” Ali said. He had been jailed. “It was my own fault. I was careless,” he explained, then told me this story. He had been delegated to do away with an Egyptian official in Cairo. Planning the attack carefully, Ali had made a sketch of the official’s itinerary and marked with an X the spot from which he was to fire his revolver. In his excitement Ali had lost the diagram.

“I didn’t need the paper. I remembered everything,” he said. “I was at the place an hour early. I had the gun in my coat pocket, with my hand always on the trigger. I was afraid I would shoot myself, so I went into a doorway to change the position of my gun. Four men followed me. They beat me on the head, and took me to the karakol. They had found my diagram on the street. In my house the police found another sketch. They beat me again, and once again in the karakol. I confessed because I did not want to be beaten any more. I was in jail two years.” Ali’s appetite had been merely whetted. “I want revenge. I failed in my duty once. I must clear myself before Allah. I must kill Jews, many Jews. I must kill till my arm is tired. I must not stop killing Jews till the bodies are this high…” The wild Arab brought one hand to his chin. “I must do one more thing…For this I need your help Artour.”

“Your wish is my command, Ali.”

“I want you to come with me the next time we fight the Yahood. When I catch a Jew alive I want you to be with me — with your camera.”

“Why do you want me with my camera?” I asked curiously.

“I want you to take one picture of me holding the living Jew by the throat. I want you to take another picture while I stab the Jew in the neck. Then I want pictures as I stab him again and again in the neck, in the face, in the heart, in his belly…with this knife!” Ali whipped out a vicious blade. “After I have killed the Jew I want you to photograph me drinking his blood.”

“While it is still warm, I suppose.”

“Yes, while it is running warm from his body,” Ali affirmed.

“Okay, I’ll take the pictures!”

What else could I say?

Muslims can't make proper societies of their own lands. There is no possible way an increased Muslim presence in free lands would do anything except ruin those free lands by virtue of an increased Muslim presence.

To think otherwise is to otherwise not think.

Guy Macher, the warnings which are supposed to educate backfire, here is something worrying, America following Europe,

The Fastest Growing Religion In America Is Islam
Do you know what the fastest growing religion in America is? It isn’t Christianity. According to the latest U.S. Religion Census that was just released on May 1, 2012, the fastest growing religion in America is Islam. The data for the census was compiled by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies, and the results were released by the Association of Religion Data Archives. From the year 2000 to the year 2010, the census found that the number of Muslims living inside the United States increased by about 1 million to 2.6 million – a stunning increase of 66.7 percent. That is an astounding rate of growth.

If the present trends continue, in 50 years European Muslim population will grow from 52 million to 370 million, while U.S. Muslim population will grow from 8 million to 147 million.

We debate best ways to deal with the explosive growth of Muslim population in the West at:
We welcome in our forum smart anti-Islamic activists who are not fascists or neo-Nazis.

continuing the speculation regarding the nature of a world conquered by islam. to begin with, peace for us, meaning male infidels. we will have been murdered. do not presume you will be allowed to join islam. islam has a long history of not allowing infidels to convert--they are needed as slaves, and when their usefulness as slaves is over, they are too easy to butcher to cause any other solution to be even considered. infidel women, however, will be very useful as sex slaves, and will survive, but their children will be good muslims, who worship an evil god, venerate a criminal prophet, pbuh, and plot evil deeds to glorify allah, the merciful. this is the final solution that our elites, our government, and our political parties have chosen for us. to experience any other outcome, we must get rid of our politically correct elites, our government, our lying media, and our political parties. if we do not rid ourselves of those evil groups, our children, to the degree that we have any, will worship an evil god. for evidence, look at europe, where cowardly white males look aside as muslim gangs rape their daughters, to the applause of the approving media, government, and liberal elites. it can happen here too. first the liberals remove your free speech, then they take away your right to be armed. then they emasculate the men, and the women are fair game for the rapists of the favored religion. you know. the religion of peace.
