Islam, Islam über alles, über alles in der Welt

The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again, this time in the form of a 21-year-old Kosovan gunman who has killed two US airmen and wounded two other people at Frankfurt Airport. He has been named as Arif Uka, and although his motive is said to be unclear, I think that we can hazard a pretty good guess as to what it was given that he is said to have shouted 'Allahu-akbar!' as he murdered his victims.

The Frankfurt Airport shooting will doubtless be subject to much speculation and scrutiny, but as in the case of Nidal Malik Hasan, who shot dead 13 people and attempted to kill another 32 at the Fort Hood US military base on 5 November 2009, there will be a concerted effort to find that this attack had ‘nothing to do with Islam’. I think however, that members of the public with an IQ higher than their age will be able to divine that there is a strong common denominator in the wave of attacks of various types directed at Western and non-Muslim targets in Europe, North America and indeed across the globe. Witness today’s assassination of Shahbaz Bhatti, a Catholic Pakistani government minister. Islamic ideology is a potent poison indeed, but can be readily combated through a dose of a readily available yet oft-ignored antidote: the truth.

On New Year’s Eve last year, another Kosovan by the name of Ibrahim Shkupolli (no points for guessing his religion) went berserk and shot his ex-girlfriend, before killing four workers in a shopping centre in the Finnish town of Espoo. He then blew his brains out. Why are these Kosovans allowed into our societies? What do they bring us, other than problems?

‘Thanks’ to Tony Blair, the UK and other NATO nations waged an unprovoked war of aggression against Serbia in 1999, leading to its dismemberment and the creation of the disputed microstate of Kosovo. He, and those who supported that war, should have realised by now that intervening anywhere in favour of Muslim populations will not earn you any gratitude. The UK should have had no part in the Balkan conflict, just as it should have no part in any military intervention in Libya or elsewhere in the Arab world in the future.

Cameron’s suggestion to send planes to enforce no-fly zones over Libya, and his refusal to rule out the despatch of ground troops to that country fills me with dread. How much more blood and treasure must we lose in a quixotic attempt to enforce a doctrine of respect for ‘human rights’ in countries where the bulk of the populace do not subscribe to such a notion? Why should we be involved? This conflict has nothing to do with us. Our forces should be used to secure our borders and protect shipping on the high seas. Leave other countries to their own troubles, for we cannot sort them out for them.
