  "And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him;
and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren" (Genesis 16:12).

"For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Not as Cain, who was of the wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him?
Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous" (1 John 3:11-12).

"It becomes important for us to clarify to the West in unequivocal terms - yet again - why we hate you and why we fight you ...
We hate you first and foremost, because you are disbelievers, you reject the oneness of Allah ...
The fact is ... our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam.
Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you ...
there is indeed a rhyme to our terrorism, warfare, ruthlessness, and brutality"

"Nothing left to say. This is our life now, and it will continue until we change our leaders"
[Anne Marie Waters, quoted at source].

A message to Amber Rudd, UK Home Secretary:
"Four years to the day since Lee Rigby.  Warned on Twitter.  Our children slaughtered.
HOW DARE YOU TELL US WE STAND UNITED"
[Katie Hopkins, quoted at source].

"I can't begin to tell you much 'Je suis sick of this s***!'
Not just of the terrorism, but also of the vapid, stupid, irresponsible utterings by our political 'elite'."
[Vivian Evans, source].

"This morning my heart lies heavy with the unwelcome reminder as to why I joined UKIP and put myself forward for Election.
My contempt for the corrupted Conservative and Labour Parties for the horrors they have brought to our country is immeasurable.
I don't want to hear their hollow, cowardly soundbites"

Manchester Arena Jihadist Attack

"LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?" (Psalm 94:3)

There Was a Blast and Then a Flash of Fire...  (23 May 2017)
"Evil descended upon Manchester Arena last night: his target was teenagers at a pop concert. He wore a vest packed with explosives and metal bits. There was a blast and then a flash of fire. And then everyone just started running, screaming and crying ...
"Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?" (Psalm 94:3) ... The power of death brings unbearable grief, but God restores the soul ... May God bless those who mourn, and wipe every tear from their eyes."

22 Dead, 120 Injured, Youngest Victim Eight Years Old After 'Suicide Bomb' at UK Ariana Grande Concert  (22 May 2017)
"Greater Manchester Police and the local NHS trust confirmed they had responded to a 'serious incident' at the Manchester Arena, and urged members of the public to stay clear of the area. ... The Manchester Evening News reports 'two loud bangs' in the vicinity of the Manchester Arena..."

 

Our Foolish 'Leaders' and Politicians

Corbyn Doesn't Realise Islamic Fanatics Don't Need a Reason to Hate Us  (27 May 2017)
"Only days after the Manchester atrocity, Jeremy Corbyn has re-entered campaign mode by suggesting that the West is, at least in part, responsible for barbaric acts such as a 'soldier of the Caliphate' slaughtering children. Long time peace campaigner, opponent of anti-terrorism measures, professed 'friend' of Hamas and Hezbollah, and former chairman of the Stop the War coalition, Corbyn draws a direct link between British foreign policy and the continuing terror threat from jihadis..."

War War Not Jaw Jaw  (26 May 2017)
"In the wake of the latest Muslim atrocity in Manchester the ridiculous pretence gores on. The farce of the first war in history in which one side, despite the ever increasing toll of corpses and maimed, refuses to admit that it is in fact at war. Theresa May says that 'We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish, but as an opportunity for carnage.'  But why does she struggle to understand? Nothing could be simpler to understand than seeing obvious acts of war for what they are?..."

Post Manchester, There Needs to Be Leadership for Britain  (25 May 2017)
"When things go wrong, that's when leadership is both tested and defined. Only weeks after innocent people were murdered in Westminster, we have again in Britain have had our way of life assaulted by Islamic killers. The aim of Islamic killers is clear, regardless of how it is sanitised by our politicians; Islam won't tolerate freedom and we are attacked for being free. It is written in every other page of the Koran..."

The Time for Teddy Bears is Over...  (25 May 2017)
"...as is the determined deployment of candles, flowers and messages of hope. Operations involving vigils, mass hand-holding and repetition of platitudes have been proven to be ineffective now. And yet our temporal, pastoral and thought leaders still come out with the same old stuff..."

Enabling Murder  (23 May 2017)
"Damn these jihadist murderers of children. And damn the politicians who have, in many cases, helped make these murders possible but who are quick, this time and every time, to serve up empty declarations of 'solidarity;' even as the bodies of innocents are still being counted. ... Three-quarters of a century ago, Britain stood shoulder to shoulder in true solidarity while under violent assault by the diabolical ideology of Nazism. Today, its leaders speak of the same kind of solidarity - but it's nothing but talk. ... You have the blood of innocent children on your hands."

 

Dhimmis and Useful Idiots

"They received not the love of the truth..." (2 Thessalonians 2:10)

Katie Hopkins' Sacking: The Mob Claims Another Scalp  (26 May 2017)
"No one is safe from the middle-class mob of offence-takers. ... Katie Hopkins has been dumped by LBC radio following days of Twitterfury and threatened boycotts over her tweet calling for a 'final solution' to the problem of Islamist [sic] violence. It doesn't matter what you think of Hopkins. It doesn't matter if you violently hate her ... or if [you] just think she's a foghorn made flesh ... or if you like her: whatever, you should still be worried that she has lost her job at the behest of a clamouring mob of self-righteous tweeters and bleaters..."

Time to Get Tough With the Would-Be Jihadists in Our Midst  (24 May 2017)
"How long will the liberal establishment keep its head in the sand over terror? ... Each time we gasp in horror. But our gasp of horror should now be directed at the government's feeble ... anti-terrorism policy ... It should be aimed too at its MSM defenders who tell us the only way to respond 'is to carry on as before'. We should gasp too at the specious 'liberal' values that underlie this cowardly and defeatist approach, which persists in putting the dignity of Islam ahead of the lives of defenceless teenagers. 'Carrying on as before' means one thing only - accepting innocent death as a sacrifice or a trade off for not upsetting Muslims..."

You Still Dare Call Us Islamophobes?  (24 May 2017)
"Yesterday, I could barely restrain my fury and rage. Today is the time for an icy-cold look at what happened ... How many times have we warned about a mass terrorist attack here in our country? How many times have we said that, yes, Islam is to blame? How many more times do our government, media, and Chief Constables think they can get away with their mantra of 'lone wolf - mentally ill - nothing to do with Islam'?  How big must that elephant in the room become before they accept the truth: it is everything to do with Islam?..."

After Manchester: It's Time for Anger  (23 May 2017)
"After the terror, the platitudes. And the hashtags. And the candlelit vigils. And they always have the same message: 'Be unified. Feel love. Don't give in to hate.'  The banalities roll off the national tongue. Vapidity abounds. A shallow fetishisation of 'togetherness' takes the place of any articulation of what we should be together for - and against. And so it has been after the barbarism in Manchester..."

The Forgotten Slaughter of the Innocents  (23 May 2017)
"For now, everyone knows the sonorous name and cherubic face of 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos. She's the littlest known victim of Monday night's jihad attack in Manchester, England. ... But I guarantee you that beautiful Saffie Rose will evaporate from the memories of those most loudly proclaiming 'Never forget' faster than a dewdrop in the desert. Look no further for proof of the West's incurable terror attack amnesia than the reaction to the Manchester massacre. Reporters, politicians and pundits expressed shock at the brutality of Muslim murderers targeting children and young people. ... What planet have these people been living on for the past 16 years? How quickly the blind, deaf and dumb virtue signalers forget..."

A Very Real War on Women Arrived in Manchester, England, Last Night  (23 May 2017)
"The targeting of an audience predominantly comprised of young girls should haunt even the most callous of cynics, and the most relativist of liberals. But it won't. Already we have witnessed large news sites demanding that Britain refuse to change its approach to terrorism and extremism. Just keep sucking it up. Keep watching your friends and family die. ... All of it ... is a massive distraction from the facts of this case. And the reality of European life today..."

How Social Media's Useful Idiots Responded to the Manchester Suicide Bomb  (23 May 2017)
"This morning I woke to learn that 22 people had been killed and upwards of 50 injured by a Muslim terrorist bomber at an Ariana Grande pop concert in Manchester, England. So based on past events, I thought I'd predict how it would pan out on social media. I really didn't have to wait long for the first part of my prediction to come true..."

Leftists Bemoan 'Islamophobia' Backlash on Social Media Following Manchester Terrorist Attack  (22 May 2017)
"Leftists took to Twitter Monday night to tweet about their fears of Islamophobia following the terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. While law enforcement has yet to identify the perpetrator of the attack, ISIS-related accounts have celebrated the bombing on social media..."

 

The Mainstream/Establishment Media

BBC Question Time...  (26 May 2017)
"I don't know if you watched BBC Question Time last night. This was the panel: Amber Rudd, Home Secretary; Andy Burnham, mayor of Greater Manchester; Sara Khan, Author of 'The Battle for British Islam'; Nazir Afzal, Association of Police and Crime Commissioners; Colin Parry, Tim Parry Jonathan Ball Foundation for peace. It had one key message: The death of our children doesn't matter, the death of their parents doesn't matter, the hurt feelings of Muslims REALLY matters.  A new low for the abysmal BBC."

When Are Islamists [sic] Going to Stop Bombing? The BBC Never Asks  (26 May 2017)
"Out of all the distress and fury from the BBC and social media abut the attack on Muslims in Manchester, one incident stood out for particular recrimination..."

 

The Religion of Death and Murder

"Ye are of your father the devil ... He was a murderer from the beginning" (John 8:44)

Manchester Bombing and the Prophet of Islam  (01 June 2017)
"Why do politicians and other religious illiterates intone the vacuous mantra that Islam is a 'religion of peace' every time there is an atrocity like the Manchester bombing last week?... Theresa May gave Donald Trump and the Republican Party the benefit of her witlessness in a speech during her January visit to the US: ... The PM is, of course, just the latest in a long line of dissembling Western leaders..."

We Should Have Saved the School Girls by Interning the Manchester Bomber  (26 May 2017)
"'I wanna be a suicide bomber.'  And as we now know, he meant it. Raised in Manchester by his refugee [sic] parents, Salman Abedi went to Syria and Libya to train in the dark art of killing the kuffir. It transpires that he was a fully-fledged flag-waving fanatic of Islamic Sate. The security services had him on their radar, although he was not deemed high risk. So he was allowed to prepare his path to 72 virgins, unfettered by surveillance..."

Manchester Suicide Bomber Salman Abedi: Son of Libyan Immigrants  (24 May 2017)
"Salman Abedi ... was apparently radicalised while living in one of the country's most heavily Muslim areas - an area that had terror-related problems before. ... South Manchester as a whole has a large Muslim population, often gathered in very small areas and raising questions about the risks that a lack of assimilation can bring. ... he was already known to security services, but authorities concluded that he did not mark an immediate threat..."

2017 Has Seen a Terror Attack Attempted in Europe Every Nine Days  (23 May 2017)
"Since January, around 45 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists, while Hundreds have been injured. ... Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the UK, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany. Security services in Britain - population 65 million - are known to be tracking 3,500 [23,000] potential terror suspects or persons posing a threat. Meanwhile Belgium, with its population of just 12 million, is tracking around 18,000 potential jihadists..."

'Dangerous Woman' Meets Dangerous Man  (23 May 2017)
"The pop star Ariana Grande has canceled the remaining dates of her 'Dangerous Woman' tour following the murder of 22 fans ... and the injury of dozens more at her concert in Manchester. The Manchester Royal Infirmary reports that half the victims brought to the hospital overnight are children. ... [M]ost ... western citizens believe that, to invert Trotsky, if you're not interested in Islam, Islam won't be interested in you. Ariana Grande was eight at the time of 9/11, and most of her fans even younger. They have passed their entire sentient lives in the age of Islamic terror, yet somehow assume it's something compartmentalised and sealed off from them..."

ISIS: To Fear or Not to Fear  (23 May 2017)
"ISIS has released a statement following the Manchester bombing praising their soldier in the midst of the 'Crusaders' as an act of revenge for the transgressions against the lands of the Muslims. 'What comes next will be far worse for the Worshippers of the Cross and their allies.' ... Still the media continuously tells us 'do not be afraid.' ... Fearing them will not strengthen them - it will strengthen us. Fear is not the emotion of a coward, ask any soldier. ... Succumbing to fear is different than having fear..."

ISIS Explains Why Islamists [sic] Hate Us, And It Has Everything To Do With Religion  (03 August 2016)
"ISIS recently released a new issue (No. 15) of Dabiq, their professionally produced magazine article. It is about 82 pages and is entitled, 'Break the Cross'. ... The issue covers everything from a response to 'pagan' Christianity and atheism to a rebuttal of politically correct narratives about (what Westerners would call) Islamism. The last of these topics is what makes the fifteenth issue of Dabiq a very important piece; it busts open the politically correct narratives that are so rampant about Islamists [sic] and their motivations..."

 

The Truth and The Truthtellers

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe it not" (John 8:45)

Who Was Right? Who Is the Real 'Enemy of the State'?  (28 May 2017)
"Who was right... The EDL's Tommy Robinson who argued we had to combat Islamic extremism or Lord Hall whose organisation worked relentlessly to cover up and excuse that extremism and present it as a 'normal' British way of life whilst vilifying and demonising Robinson?..."

Islamist [sic] Terrorists Are Evil Losers - Trump is Right  (25 May 2017)
"Donald Trump is under attack again. There is nothing new in this. If Trump were to cure cancer there would be headlines 'Trump throws gravediggers out of work.'  His offence this time is following the latest Islamic atrocity in Manchester: he called Islamic terrorists evil losers. This statement has caused howls of protest. The elites had to reach for their smelling salts..."

Islam Is To Blame for Manchester  (24 May 2017)
I am writing this article today just after we, members of the Dutch parliament, in the presence of the British Ambassador, commemorated the Manchester victims with a short speech by our PM and one minute of silence. Two months ago, we did the same for the victims in Stockholm. Last December, for those in Berlin. And, earlier, for those in Nice, Brussels, Paris, Copenhagen... The List becomes endless, while the number of Western ambassadors, who have not visited our parliament for one of these sad occasions, becomes ever smaller..."

The Terrorists Want to Unite Us - Not Divide Us  (23 May 2017)
"Yet again we see innocent people and children dead, maimed, and lives ruined, and for what? We will no doubt hear the usual platitudes that 'it has nothing to do with Islam'. And we will also hear that this latest outrage, 'must not be allowed to divide us.' ... In our society, any ideology can be discussed, criticised or even mocked, but not Mohammedanism - sorry, Islam. ... Mohammedanism is a barbaric, regressive ideology that was primitive and backward when it was first concocted in 6th century Arabia. We should be united: not in fear of Mohammedanism, but united in opposition to allowing it any influence in our society."

Morrissey Rips British Politicians After Manchester Attack...  (23 May 2017)
"Musician and songwriter Morrissey angrily excoriated British politicians following Monday night's deadly terrorist attack at a pop music concert in Manchester, England, claiming that it is easy for politicians to say they are 'unafraid' and to remain resolute while failing to address the root causes of terrorism and hiding behind their own robust security..."

They Are Enemy Combatants in These Houses  (23 May 2017)
"Tommy Robinson ... is full of fire, passion, and righteous indignation on behalf of the English working class. If enough of his fellows were able to hear it, his could become the voice of the English working class, because he definitely speaks for them. In the following report from Manchester, Tommy reports on what happened last night, and discusses the collusion of British politicians with Islamic radicals:..."

Islamic Terror in Manchester  (23 May 2017)
"PM Theresa May and Home Secretary Amber Rudd may pretend that Britain is unbowed, but the depth of their denial and their blatant lies are driven only by their fear of Islam. The only reason they claim Islam is a religion of peace is because they fear Islam. The only reason Muslim gang rapes were covered up for decades is because our traitor class fears Islam. The only reason that violent and supremacist screeds within the Koran and the Hadiths are never placed under public scrutiny is because our traitor class fears Islam..."

If the Slaughter Continues, Muslims Will Have To Go  (23 May 2017)
"Not since the Nazis targeted women and infants for cold-blooded execution has Europe witnessed acts of such cynical, bestial viciousness. Last night in Manchester, a mad dog of Islam detonated a bomb full of nuts and bolts at a concert venue. Twenty-two young revellers were killed, fifty-nine injured..."

"On the four-year anniversary of the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby by two converts to Islam, a Muslim suicide bomber named Salman Abedi attacked exiting fans at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, killing 22 and injuring 59 others.

Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything. Or maybe we should probably just cut to the chase and start using the hashtag #wesubmit.

"This cannot go on much longer... can it?... There's not much for me to add here that hasn't already been said after every other similar attack like this, but what I will say is that the screeching from the Left is as loud and familiar as ever: 'Hashtags Not All', even though we never said it was all; criticism of the motivational doctrinal is apparently Islamophobic, as we know; taking any action after this incident will just apparently cause more people to be radicalised somehow ... I suppose if we criticise rape, we'll just cause more people to rape? It's unbelievable. In the meantime, British politicians will signal their surrender by bravely doing nothing ... 'we will not be divided, we will not be cowed by terrorists, we will valiantly carry on as normal.'  The illusion of a stiff upper lip. You can deny reality, but you cannot deny the consequences of denying reality. This is a disgusting betrayal of the victims and their families..."

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

This is an extract from the youtube by Black Pigeon Speaks: Manchester: The Hashtag & Flag Filter Response

"It would seem that it was a very prudent investment. The blue, white, and red lights acquired by the management at the Sydney Opera House, the Empire State Building, Tower Bridge, the Brandenburg Gate, and the CN Tower, among others. They sure are getting their use in the past year - along with Facebook profile flag-filters, and, given that the last episode of Islamic Cultural Enrichment happened in Westminster only two months ago, perhaps they might just want to keep them lit in perpetuity; it would save on the costs of setting-up and taking down. This is the new normal: Islamic jihad in the name of Allah the Magnificent is just a normal part of life when you live in a big city ...

"So now that there's been a bombing in Manchester that has killed 19 and wounded 50, first things first: we need to remember our hashtags for our posts over the next couple of days: ##prayformanchester, #notallmuslims, #lovetrumpshate - gotta get our barb in there, #neverdivided, #refugeeswelcome... Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything. Or maybe we should probably just cut to the chase and start using the hashtag #wesubmit. Once we get these out of the way, it's time to remember the comical 'Six Steps of Western Response to an Islamic Terror Attack' that's used every single time:

  • Step 1:  Tearful, sad cartoons will be published;

  • Step 2:  Facebook flag-filters - and in this case, the UK, again;

  • Step 3:  Crying on TV of citizens, newscasters, politicians, etc;

  • Step 4:  Lighting up those buildings as well as candle-lit vigils;

  • Step 5:  The narrative that Muslims are the real victims as their faith has been 'hijacked' by 'misunderstanders' of the true Islam, will be pushed hard;

  • Step 6:  Virtue-signal on how tolerant we are.

"Wait for the next jihadist attack:  Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

"Should our friends in Europe tweet or post on Facebook anything other than 'Islam is The Religion of Peace', they could have visits from their local police - or, as they're now being deployed, Thought Police. Because we don't want anyone, especially society at large, to realise we are in the midst of a Clash of Civilisations. The only problem is, one side, namely the West, is refusing to acknowledge that anything of the sort is even taking place. And Islamic fundamentalists realise this and are playing the West like a fiddle ...

"Unless the West wakes up and realises that the problem of global jihad is not going to get any better by calling those like Donald Trump 'an Islamophobe', or attacking people like Tommy Robinson, who speak truth to the dystopian narrative that is constantly being spun, it will lose.

"To New York, London, Madrid, Boston, Berlin, Paris, Nice, Brussels, Glasgow, St Petersburg, Moscow, Stockholm, Normandy, Munich, and others I can't remember right now, we can now add Manchester. ...

"Perhaps this latest inter-cultural exchange in Manchester may wake up a few to the fruits of vibrant enrichment. I'm not going to hold my breath; I think I'll just keep my flag-filter and list of hashtags at the ready, and wait for the next celebration of diversity."

 

The Curse of Cain

"After Cain killed his brother, the Lord told him, ... 'Cursed shall you be from the earth', ... and so it has been. The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, ... They become worshippers of death dreaming of the green verdant fields of paradise which they can reach only if they kill enough men, women and children. Leaving devastation behind them, dead lands, lost cultures, widows and orphans, they claw their way up to heaven on a ladder of bones. Everything around them dies until the only green is on their flags. They are cursed from the earth and they curse the earth. Where they go, the world dies. ... Cain sows fields of corpses of the innocent for the Lord and he still does not understand why his sacrifice is not accepted and why the earth he dwells on is cursed. ...  From Iraq to Iran, from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia, from Nigeria to Somalia, from Pakistan to Indonesia, he holds up human heads and cries 'Allahu Akbar'. ... There is no room for Cain anywhere. Where he remains there will be death and suffering. He will kill because it is all he can do. He has nothing else to offer the world, his own kind, or the Creator.. ... He kills from one end of the world to the next and it is never his fault. Each time, each Abel did it. ... His code is cruelty and his holy book is written in blood on the flayed skins of his murdered victims. ... The cries of peoples long vanished from the earth warn us that we will either drive out Cain or his curse will fill our lands with blood and dust and all that we love and all that we have worked for will die at his cursed touch."

 

The Burden Which Habakkuk the Prophet Saw

The righteous cry out for God's punishment of the injustice in their lands:
O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!
Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.

The LORD God answers:
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs.
They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves:
And their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.

The dismay of the righteous at God's answer:   
Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die.
O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity:
Wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.
Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.
Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

The LORD God's reassurance to the righteous:
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

[Habakkuk 1:1-2:4]
