In FrontPage this morning I discuss yesterday’s axe attack by a Muslim migrant screaming “Allahu akbar”:
The latest jihad attack in Germany reveals how difficult it is becoming for the political and media elites to maintain their fantasy-based narrative in the face of reality. An axe-wielding Muslim refugee from Afghanistan stormed a train, screamed “Allahu akbar” and began attacking passengers. This happened, of course, as a result of policies that Angela Merkel aggressively pursued. And as she did so, she must have known that this kind of thing would start happening. What else could she possibly have expected?
Those who called for Europe to take in as many Muslim migrants as possible may have foreseen this: after all, they insisted that the refugees were not a danger, but were in danger. Only racist bigoted Islamophobes would dare express any skepticism about the wisdom of admitting these refugees, we were told. To oppose the Muslim migrant influx into Europe was evidence of a moral defect, we were told.
And so, with 21 injured in this jihadi migrant’s axe attack, we will likely soon hear that he was mentally ill, traumatized by the war in his native Afghanistan, or enraged over some slight (or even over “Islamophobia”), and that the one thing we all must understand above everything else is that Islam had nothing, nothing whatsoever, to do with this attack, and that the one thing we must not do in the wake of this attack is question or resist the ongoing Muslim migrant influx. Everyone will say so. They always do.
But when they tell us this, they’re leaving out a few important details. Such as the fact that Ahmad al-Mohammed and one other of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees.
In February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.
So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe, and now the U.S. as well? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September 2015, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.”
On May 10, 2016, Patrick Calvar, the head of France’s DGSI internal intelligence agency, said that the Islamic State was using migrant routes through the Balkans to get jihadis into Europe.
Monday’s axe attack was just the beginning. Merkel has brought an untold number of jihad terrorists, and jihad terror sympathizers, to Germany, and more are coming all the time. The axe attack is a glimpse of Germany’s future, the future that Merkel has visited upon her nation – and the rest of the leaders of the Western world are eagerly following her lead.
The axe attack in Germany is, in microcosm, the future our children will face because our leaders are intent on being “multicultural” and avoiding “racism.” How long will Merkel and Obama continue to sacrifice their nations on the altars of these false idols? How much blood must be spilled before the leaders of the free world determine to defend their nations rather than let their people die in the service of shoring up multiculturalist fantasies?
It’s time to repudiate the political and media elites in both Europe and North America. We need some real leaders.
