Some German Internet users noted in their comments that even a first year student should have enough common sense and knowledge of the world to see the threat coming with the wave of migrants flooding Europe and posing the risk of smuggling ISIS cells. They conclude that either we are ruled by complete idiots, or our leaders play their roles in the scenario.
About six months ago, I wrote the article about the so-called ‘moderate rebels’ who will return to Europe where unthreatened by the Russian Army raids they will be able to peacefully continue the mission begun in the Middle East. However for some reason European civilians will become their target.
‘It’s hard to believe that a terrorist who leaves Paris, London, Brussels, or Boston, or Australia and arrives in Syria without a visa, without a passport, through dozens of states and the Turkish-Syrian or Jordanian-Syrian border, has done so without intelligence services overseeing these operations’.
‘Today we have a new phenomenon called European terrorism. They claimed before that there was Arab and Islamic terrorism. Today we are victims of European terrorism, emanating from Brussels, Paris, London, Spain, Germany, Italy…’ States, Syria’s ambassador to the UN and chief negotiator at the Geneva peace talks, Dr. Bashar Ja’afari.
Today, news agencies compete to inform us how great a threat Jihadists may bring including the danger of nuclear, biological and chemical weapon being smuggled into Europe.
Anyway, within just a few months, Europe has become a training ground surrounded by barbed wire. These days Europe looks like one big collective farm under increased surveillance because of constant threat of terrorist attacks. Thus, it is impossible to disagree with the German Internet users emphasizing that we are either ruled by complete idiots, or became entangled in some ghastly spectacle.
Weapons of Mass Migration
Professor Zygmunt Bauman, Emeritus Professor of Sociology at Leeds University, United Kingdom clarifies the issue:
‘We could describe what is going on at the moment as a crisis of democracy, the collapse of trust: the belief that our leaders are not just corrupt or stupid, but inept. Action requires power, to be able to do things, and we need politics, which is the ability to decide what needs to be done. But that marriage between power and politics in the hands of the nation state has ended. Power has been globalized, but politics is as local as before. Politics has had its hands cut off. People no longer believe in the democratic system because it doesn’t keep its promises…’.
‘Changing one party for another will not solve the problem. The problem is not that the parties are wrong, but that they don’t control things…’.
It seems that we are already part of the Brzezinski scenario outlined in his book more than forty years ago: “Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era”.
“The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.”
The war of all against all?
In February 2014 the Ukrainian nationalists put forward territorial claims in relation to the nineteen Polish counties. So if it comes to the division of Ukraine, thousands of followers of Stefan Bandera and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army from western Ukraine may demand the mentioned territories from Poland.
In this context, it is worth mentioning that training camps for Ukrainian and German neo-Nazis that were also located in the Warmia and Mazury region in Poland.
Another issue is a potential clash of the masses of immigrants from the Middle East with the crowds of refugees from Ukraine (among the migrants from the Middle East there will be a number of Islamists and among those from Ukraine their allies like the Tornado Battalion.
Bauman also defines another important kind of conflict:
Conflict is no longer between classes, but between each person and society. It isn’t just a lack of security, but a lack of freedom’.
Zbigniew Brzeźiński’s words seem to be relevant here:
“I don’t want to be a prophet of doom — and I don’t think we are approaching doom — but I think we’re going to slide into intensified social conflicts, social hostility, some forms of radicalism, there is just going to be a sense that this is not a just society,”
The next battleground in Europe is to use Islamism against Islam and inciting the whole of Europe against Islam. Professor Claudio Mutti reflects upon this issue:
‘Samuel Huntington writes that the main problem for the United States is not Islamic fundamentalism but Islam itself. So if Islam is a strategic enemy of the United States, Islamic fundamentalism could be its tactical ally. Anti-Islamic phenomenon known as Islamism depends largely on the support of the Wahhabi regime remaining in the alliance with the United States.
Therefore, you can expect that “political Islam” will be used in accordance with the needs of the US strategy. As regards the European Union, experience has taught us that the Secret Service from the US and from Israel are experts on the manipulation of extremist groups, and therefore it cannot be ruled out that Salafi groups could be used to blackmail European governments.’
We have to deal with another quite serious conflict in Europe on the line between radicalized nationalist and Islamist movements which only started to boost. German security forces recently arrested the suspected of operating in a right-wing extremist group. The members of the “Gruppe Freital” (the name of one of the districts of Dresden) who have already carried out the first attacks on the houses occupied by immigrants and plan further attacks. The German police caught three suspects people, including probably the two leaders.
However these processes are limited mainly to Western Europe. There is still the issue of Central – Eastern Europe where, as recently the leader of the band U2 exaggerously said: ‘hypernationalism’ rules and something must be done about it.
Barbara Spectre, the founder of The European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden – Paideia puts forward the need to make the following revolutionary changes in Europe:
“I think there’s a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural, and I think we’re gonna be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”
A sign of the announced transition can be for instance “The Report on anti-Semitism”, on which the Council of Europe is to vote as we read on parezja.pl
‘Practicing Catholics are slightly more anti-Semitic than the rest of the population”- the report says. The further content also shows that Islamists have definitely a more positive attitude towards Jews, and a “statistical anti-Semite” is also hostile to Muslims, LGBT and women.
It should be noted that such countries as Hungary or Poland are Catholic countries.
This whole situation is likely to lead to the consolidation of the homogeneous and Catholic states, at least in Central and Eastern Europe, which of course has nothing to do with the proposed changes by Mrs. Barbara Spectre.
So what ought to be done to transform a ‘hypernationalist’ Central and Eastern Europe into a multicultural mode?
Some specific provocation would be enough. The blame will be shifted onto local. Then in the countries blamed for hypernationalism the implementation of democracy will be a priority publicly validated.
