Today in Normandy, two animals beheaded a 92 year old priest during mass in the name of ISIS.

Ironically this happened in Normandy, where the liberation of France began. The priest was old enough to have participated in the war in some way, and even if he did not his peers did. Hundreds of thousands of men died to protect France.

I wonder if this is what they had in mind?

ISIS terrorists have accomplished what other terror groups could not. While others relied on long term mass attacks that had to be planned months in advance and are easy to thwart ISIS is fine with lone actors doing their own thing. And like I and many others predicted, it's reached the point where this is simply a fact of life in Western Europe. Every day another attack, some big and some small. Even I can't keep track anymore.

We are becoming desensitized to it but at the same time it's in the back of everyone's mind. There is now nothing Europeans can do that is safe, from watching a fireworks show to worshipping God. An atmosphere of sheer terror and mayhem is what surrounds life in the Western world.

This is the future our political leaders chose.

European cosmopolitan internationalism is actively destroying Europe. Multiculturalism only works when you're dealing with other cultures that share your basic values. Islamic cultures do not share Western values, and Islamic immigrants and Islamic terrorists have caused and continue to cause tremendous damage to Europe, as well.

Cosmopolitan internationalists, however, lack the intellectual ability to recognize this. They labor under the fantasy that there are no "barbaric" cultures or civilized ones--just different cultures. These are the same people who regard intolerance of Islamic radicalism as "racism" and "xenophobia." They are the same people who would actively censor anyone who disagrees with them, while welcoming barbarians into their communities.

Europe is not a safe place anymore, and Islam is the reason why. Islam has caused more damage to human civilization, and, in particular, the first world, than any other political group. In action, Islam is political before it is religious, and in this way it is unique from other world religions.

The problem remains that so many in this country have been raised in ways that prevent them from understanding the facts of this crisis as they unfold before their eyes, and this is the case both in the United States and Europe.

I can guarantee you that not ONE sane person would miss any of those ISIS a$$holes.

But yes, bull$h!t politicians all over the World are more concerned about increasing their constituent count and also to maintain it inbetween elections.

At least Christians are more organized now before they go out and kill their enemies. They join the military and use the governments as an excuse to kill Muslims or anyone they don't like.

I guess I missed the European Cosmopolitan Internationalists dancing in the streets because they tolerate and love Islamic radicalism.

This is exactly why the discussion can not move forward to get to solutions. You shut the entire conversation down by spouting radical nonsense such as Europeans defend Islamic radicalism and terrorism.

Don't bother replying.

Humans, not animals.

And the liberation of France began in the South, not Normandy. Nice mishistory.

Complete and utter BS, I can tell you live in the US. Everyone is relaxed over here, I sleep easy. Everyone is feeling ok, no one even talks of the attacks since they don't care, even if it happened in their own country. There is no "feeling of terror", you get searched when entering buildings and that's it. The US has airport security at the M&M's factory.

"Europe needs diversity to survive" = "Europe won't survive unless it commits suicide"

Really, if the cosmopolitans were so concerned about the safety of Muslim im/migrants, they wouldn't endorse and fight for an environment that will breed violent right-wing sentiment.

Europe's Islamic/Arab issue will be solved one way or another. The question is whether it will be done through legally sanctioned channels or not.

What's really the root cause, though? I would say it's interventions and wars without an understanding of the Middle East, and then being unable to deal with the fallout from consequences not considered well enough. The west - but mostly the US and UK - have created refugees that they don't know how to deal with.

Agreed. There is no dumber set of policies than invade the world and invite the world.

We destabilize the islamic world for decades on end and then wonder why we're getting attacked by unassimilable people who come from a totally alien culture. Our leaders cannot possibly be dumb enough to not realize this...they just don't care
