34 people were killed today in coordinated terrorist attacks in Brussels. At least one of the attacks was delivered via a suicide bomber. Here are my thoughts.
Western leaders are already going through the same cycle of making “bold” statements that amount to nothing.
David Cameron’s statement was typical. He said, “We need to stand together against these appalling terrorists and make sure they can never win.”
I am certain that we can expect candlelight vigils too. And exhortations to “Pray for Belgium” from godless people who never pray on social media.
Same old story. We stand together… until the next terrorist attack.
Reasons why our leaders do nothing
There are things that could be done to reduce the likelihood of future attacks. A ban could be placed on Muslim immigration. Muslims who were non-citizens could be deported. Citizens who were terrorist sympathizers could be stripped of their citizenship and deported.
None of those measures will take place. The reason that our leaders will give is that those solutions would not be consistent with our democratic principles. They tell us that it would hurt the feelings of Muslims—so we will have to just put up with losing a few hundred people to terrorism every year.
The real reasons remain unstated. The first is that the leaders of Western nations want immigration in the hopes that the new immigrants will provide the labor necessary to maintain the comfortable welfare states that Europe has created. After all, Europeans are too selfish to reproduce. Why not import Islamic immigrants to fill the shortage?
The second reason is darker. I believe there is a real hatred of the Christian peoples of Europe among our “elites.” Making Europe more multicultural makes these nations easier to control. The ultimate goal is to destroy Christian Europe and turn it into a hodge-podge of different religions and ethnicities.
Voting is not a solution
In any sort of a sane world, the voters of Europe would recognize that they are being replaced and that their elected representatives are completely unresponsive to them. They would quickly vote out the traitors and elect nationalist politicians.
But it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. The decades of indoctrination have worked. Europeans would literally prefer to die than to be called racist. One photo of a drowned toddler is more than sufficient to counter the thousands of photos of dismembered bomb victims.
After the candlelight vigils, most Europeans will go back to living their comfortable lives and the politicians will go back to their project of destroying Europe.
Only a few will understand
Most Europeans will go back to sleep, but not all.
We’ll never convince the masses. Argument is futile.
The future is always shaped by the few. There are two things we need to do.
- Prepare. The situation cannot go on forever. We must be ready when the opportunity presents itself.
- Pray. But this is more than just a hashtag on social media. Pray that God may topple those leaders who are willing to sell out their faith and their people for profit. Pray that we will be awake and ready. Pray that we will have the strength to do what needs to be done.
