We wake up this morning and are shocked to the core when we turn on the television news. These explosive events will dominate the news channels for a long time to come. There is no doubt at all that Muslims as a whole will be blamed for this carnage on the streets of Paris. Islamophobia will now be churned up to fever pitch. Any man with a dusky complexion and a turban will be regarded as a potential suicide bomber.
It is too early to formulate a sober assessment of these events. However, we will try and get out an article later on today presenting the main facts as refracted through the world’s media. Meanwhile, while the dust is still swirling in the air around us, let’s consider who was behind these events and what their motive might have been.
According to our correspondent Dick Eastman, a seasoned observer of the political scene, this entire series of events could only have been orchestrated by ISIS. Only extreme fanatics, impelled by an unquenchable rage and quite ready to sacrifice their lives in meticulously coordinated terrorist attacks on a major European city, could have been responsible for these events.
Whether the secret sponsors of ISIS—the US, Israel, and America’s European vassal countries in Nato—are delighted at this unexpected turn of events and actually set them in motion, is an entirely different question. To make any such allegation would be regarded as bordering on treason and amounting to hate speech on an unparalleled scale: as pure, unadulterated, toxic anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism.
Dick Eastman makes no such allegation.
According to Eastman, the traumatic evens in Paris are ISIS’s revenge against its sponsors, the US/Israel/Nato axis, for setting them up, financing them, arming them, encouraging them with hopes of an Islamic caliphate—and then, after Putin’s intervention in Syria, suddenly doing a U-turn and double-crossing them. ISIS, according to this hypothesis, is mad angry with its traitorous sponsors and has lashed out in retaliation at being betrayed. Other European cities now face the same menace of imminent Islamic terrorism.
One thing is certain. All this will give the authorities a perfect pretext for draconian new legislation: for the suppression of free speech, the criminalization of Holocaust denial and any criticism of Israel, and intrusive, non-stop surveillance of every citizen. Anyone who harbors a single hostile thought toward the government will henceforth be regarded as a potential terrorist.
This is the new commandment: LOVE BIG BROTHER — OR ELSE!
