The Middle East is admittedly a mess. It has been a mess for a while. There has been some sort of war going on over there for decades. However, at least for the time being, the advance of ISIS, or the Islamic State, appears to have been halted.
Yet still, thousands more “refugees” arrive in Europe everyday to escape the fighting. But with no evident uptick in violence, why are these “refugees” still streaming into the west?
There has been armed conflict and war in that region of the world for quite a long time. Why now is there this overwhelming flood of these “refugees?” And why travel all the way to Western Europe? Why not go to Russia, or any of the “Stan” countries that aren’t currently at war or under some sort of siege? Heck, they are a least closer.
For the answers, one only need recall the very words said to us all by the leader of the new Islamic State, the self-appointed Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He said from the beginning that ISIS could never hope to defeat the west, Europe in particular, militarily, in a straight up fight.
His plan all along has been to overrun the European Union and conquer it from within. His plan, it seems, is working like a charm. In their effort to show the world how truly enlightened and tolerant a society Western Europe is, their countries’ marshmallowy, myopic, passivist leaders are falling right into Baghdadi’s trap.
Europe has accepted one and all, indiscriminately allowing anyone who is able to walk, ride or float into their countries. And amongst the “refugees” are thousands of ISIS jihadists.
And more than any other to date, their destination has been Germany. Many have said, me included, that this is merely due to the generous German welfare system. To be sure, that is a big incentive.
But there are other reasons Germany is the destination of choice for al-Baghdadi’s jihadists. Germany is the most powerful, economically, of all the E.U. nations. Therefore, by default, it is the de facto head of the Union. Baghdadi knows that in order to conquer Europe, they must first overwhelm its strongest member. Also, Germany is one of the least defended European countries.
Just look at how the West reacted to one child washing up on the shore at that Turkish resort. It’s almost as if it were a deliberate act. Those photographs of that one child even caused Americans to insist we allow the “refugees” into our country.
And now that winter is right around the corner, the push from soft liberal European leaders will be even greater. We must let them in lest they freeze to death along their “trail of tears.”
But as their pitiful leadership struggles to allow more migrants (and ISIS killers) in, the general public, the average European citizen isn’t just sitting still, and Austria appears to be taking the lead.
Weapons sales are soaring in Austria. In a country with only about 8.5 million people, there is said to be almost 1 million guns. That’s close to the number in Germany which has a population 10 times larger.
Shotguns are evidently the preferred choice for home defense, as it is near impossible to find one for sale in the country. “Virtually all shotguns are currently sold out, because you need no permit for them,” said Thomas Ortner, spokesman for an arms dealer in Upper Austria. A license is required for almost all other guns.
“License courses, in which applicants must demonstrate knowledge of firearms, used to take place every five weeks but they are now held weekly because of spiking demand.
In cities like Salzburg, a line of people outside the necessary government office to get the paperwork to buy a gun is now an everyday sight.”
And the odd thing is that women are buying them up at a much greater rate than men.
Now, I wonder why that is? Have we not been told that the vast majority of “refugees” have been mothers with children? Why would an Austrian woman be afraid of innocent women and children? Huh.
Could it be that the lies, promulgated by politicians and the liberal press, don’t jibe with the reality on the streets? I wrote an article over a month ago that this is nonsense. From what I’ve seen, the majority of “refugees” are fighting age males.
At least one politician sees a possible end. Slovenian Prime Minister, Miro Cerar, warns that if quick action isn’t taken to get a handle on the “refugee” situation, The European Union may collapse.
This has been the Caliph’s plan from day one – his crown jewel – the collapse of Europe from the inside out, and if nothing changes, he will succeed.
