Terror in Europe
Attacks and their promotion should be equated with Nazism and the act of denying its crimes

Terror in Europe has been a fixture of the region’s political and social landscape since WWII. Following the end of the Algerian War in 1962, dissatisfied with the signed peace accord, France’s underground military organisation OAS committed 12,000 terror attacks in Algeria and 660 in France. Italy was similarly maligned by the Red Brigades between 1970 and 1988, including several thousands of attacks, the assassination of Prime Minister Aldo Moro and countless other victims.
Another terrorist group is the Red Army Faction (RAF) in Germany, which was active for 30 years between 1968 and 1998. Its more notable figures included leftist intellectuals Ulrike Meinhof and Andreas Baader. They robbed banks, killed a slew of people, kidnapped others and generally wreaked havoc until the best German criminologists and tens of thousands of policemen went after them. Some of the leaders were apprehended and got up to several life sentences each, as many as five, in the absence of capital punishment. Nonetheless, some of them were granted early release for good conduct, even though they were sentenced for as many as nine murders.
Meanwhile, Germany became the stage of a hypocritical drama. Following the sentencing and imprisonment of their leadership, the Red Army members still at large started kidnapping people, demanding that their comrades be released. The German authorities could not possibly do that but neither could they afford the extortion to continue.
The solution? Simple – if the convicts disappeared so would the kidnappings. On the heels of that epiphany Ulrike Meinhof, journalist and doctor of science, hanged herself in prison, while her fellow inmates were found in their cells, prostrated on the ground, a bullet hole on the side of their heads. Of course, the guns were neatly lying beside them. The authorities could have at least mixed in a mushroom poisoning if they had enough imagination. The “suicides” occurred in the best maximum security prison in Germany. Slaughtering prisoners, and so unapologetically at that, is not exactly a standard democratic practice. But as they say, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Soon after 2001, bombs started detonating in Europe again, evoking memories of the terror past of the continent. Be it 200, 100 or a handful, the civilian victims in Europe are becoming a grim statistic we are increasingly growing used to. The weapons of destruction have expanded from bombs and submachine guns to include everyday items such as motor vehicles, knives and hammers. The cheap DIY approach seems to be the trend.
Almost without exception, the terror attacks have Islamic roots. The one exception actually set a horrendous world record. In 2011 the Norwegian Anders Breivik killed 77 people in one day, the largest mass murder committed by a single person in history. He was convicted to 21 years in jail. Well, he does not need to work and has a cell of three rooms equipped with every comfort. He also has the right to correspond with the outside world, so every day he receives letters from exhilarated female fans from across the globe. And he writes back. That is democracy for you.
The ridiculous tolerance and political correctness with which all sorts of terrorists are treated is already bearing fruit. Anyone that is not too lazy to find a kitchen knife and a rental car seems to be dabbling in terrorism nowadays. They are joined by those feeling depressed because they cannot afford to buy a Ferrari with the benefits provided to them by the insanely generous social states or because they cannot sleep with their favourite Hollywood star.
According to the terrorists’ strong convictions, after sending the necessary number of infidels to hell, they are guaranteed access to heaven, where copious amounts of food and drinks and, more importantly 77 magnificent virgins, will await them. These miraculous women are said to become even more virginal and gloriously beautiful in the morning after each night spent with the heroic attacker. In the Islamist ghettos, terrorism has the highest rate of public approval, with joyful celebrations erupting after each attack on the infidels. Such hysteria follows even the most innocent of accident, such as a plane carrying infidels crashing due to a technical malfunction.
Naturally, Europe is fighting terrorism with all it has. It waves stuffed animals at train stations and sings “everyone is welcome” to the dark hordes of bearded and ostensibly underage men with gun powder on their hands. Of course, after each massacre, the mindless chickens sing mantras worthy of people with learning disabilities like “we are so and so” and “we are not afraid”. This mentally deficient response to terror could only succeed if the attackers had a sense of humour and laughed to death.
In the meantime, I really think these people deserve credit. They are deeply ideologically motivated (religion is also a form of ideology), they love their families, believe in their god and are prepared to die. To Islamists, killing infidels is part of freedom and duty.
What now? Should we grow beards, get circumcised, make our women veil themselves and declare that we have converted to Islam? Should we let the last white men pull the plug on the Christian civilisation, which has soared to incredible scientific and technological heights but allowed itself to be steered by insipid and aimless leaders?
It might be too late but we must try and save ourselves. Terrorism and its promotion should be equated with Nazism and the act of denying its crimes. Those with life sentences for terrorist attacks should not be granted early release. And who knows, one of the main paradigms of criminal justice might even be reviewed? The US and Japan are widely considered to be democratic nations but they have death penalty for the most serious of offences.
The remains of terrorists should be dealt with in a way that would prevent them from reaching heaven according to their beliefs. There are different ways and none more aesthetic than cremation. Almost without exception, the families of terrorists are also guilty. Islamist foundations throw cash at them after each attack. These organisations should be banned and their funds seized and invested in the secular education of all children. Imams serving in mosques should be obligated to sign declarations pledging to abide by the principles of the secular state and to condemn any form of religious violence. Those who refuse should be ousted. Female circumcision should be treated as an attempted murder in the eyes of the law. Every asylum seeker should take a lie detector test and undergo gun powder checks. Those who do not pass should be returned to their country of origin.
The absolutely idiotic policy of paying enormous amounts of money to anyone who has managed to get to Europe ought to be abandoned. People migrate to the US to work and be a productive member of society. But they come to Europe to live off of social benefits, refusing to integrate and trying to promote Islam. This is the truth, the rest is politically correct balderdash. The annual growth rate of population in Africa alone is 40 million. Even if all these people came to Europe, it would not help Africa but our continent would most definitely fall into complete decay.
