I don't know what is wrong with people that want to hide their head in the sand and act like nothing is happening around them. I guess the world is truly made for people that aren't cursed with self-awareness.

That commercial had to have been made by people that are either oblivious to reality or are politicians that don't care about the truth and have no problem lying to their constituents.

No, YOU'RE wrong.

It's by labeling it as anything except inhumane, uncivilized or barbaric that we allow it to persist.

Because all other labels make people divide up to protect their tribes or interests groups. Appealing to the common denominator of our mutual humanity is the only thing that *might* coalesce the world into action. The whole world, not just Christians. Not just the right.

Well people with your point of view are leading us world wide and it doesn't seem to be working out to well.

Are these the same world leaders who slaughtered hundreds of thousands of innocent Afghans and Iraqis in the name of protecting us from 'terrorism'?

Your probably right in one sense, it didn't work out to well for them.

Are these the same Afghanis who slaughtered thousands of innocents and destroyed priceless archeological treasures under sharia law?

Are these the same Iraqis who slaughtered thousands of their own citizens using chemical weapons among other gross human rights violations?

I totally agree.

I don't give two #s about ideology or religion. Not left, not right. Not Christian, Jew or Muslim. I care about humanity. And this # is INHUMANE. And because of that, we should set aside all affiliations, prejudices and loyalties and call BULL# on it. It's #ing uncivilized and decent people of Earth need to root it out.

that's nice and all but most of humanity cares and have cared for millennia and such things as multiculturalism and immigration create conflict and strife as a matter of course, go ahead and call bs all you want but human nature could care less.
try to understand that even with modern laws and knowledge humans are still beasts guided by instinct, just restrained in a fragile illusory cage.

Nobody more than the Belgians are aware of the situation in which they find themselves. The problem with Belgium has been, for the last 15-20 years, that it has wanted to be a paragon of integrational experimentation. Such a small country, with such a large history. It suffered, Belgium, much more than most, during the first and second world wars. It wanted so much to be the beacon of light for humanity, how to treat people.

Sadly it lost its balance, lost its centre. The people were so feverish in their desire to do the right thing that they turned a beautiful and peaceful place into a mire of extremist ideology and a breeding ground for the same.

I feel such pity for the people of Belgium, they, more than most, truly don't deserve what has happened to their country. And I am not talking about the attacks of today alone.

Who knows.

Also interesting/coincidental that Van Damme, who is from Belgium, just exposed the Rothschilds on live television.

Sometimes TPTB need to teach these nations a lesson, "how dare you not be terrified of the Moslems!?"

Coincidentally, "anti-terrorism" exercises were scheduled to take place at the same place/same time blah blah, as usual, etc. etc.

Anti-terrorism exercise scheduled for Sofia on March 22.

Large-Scale Anti-Terror Training to be Held in Sofia.

Take the Madrid attack. Spain was debating over whether or not to withdraw from Iraq. Just 3 days before the national election, bombs rip thru a commuter train killing 200.

If this had happened in say the US or UK, for example, we'd be screaming bloody murder vowing revenge against someone. Not the Spaniards. This false flag attack had the exact opposite effect.

They overwhelmingly elected the Socialists who had promised to withdraw from Iraq.

In Spain, an intense controversy continues even now around the attack, designated as “11-M”.

The foreign press has essentially abstained from reporting the polarization of the Spanish media on the topic [1]. Spain’s two main newspapers, in fact, take starkly opposing view points when addressing the terrorist attacks of March 11.

According to El Pais (center-left Atlanticist newspaper), there are no legitimate doubts about the Islamist theory, while for El Mundo (center-right nationalist newspaper) the Islamist theory is nothing more than a police set-up.

Division exists even among skeptics who oppose the theory of an Islamist attack. Some incriminate ETA while others suspect the secret services of Spain as well as of foreign nations.

it wouldn`t be so bad if it was just the liberals that were putting their lives in danger by insisting that terrorist be allowed in the country but liberals are insisting that all of us have to put our lives in danger and that`s just wrong.
The way I see it is that the liberals are trying to deprive me of my constitutional right to life,if they want to endanger their own lives that`s their right but they don`t have the right to tell everyone else that we have to put our lives in danger.

Freaking liberals...We can only hope the ones who willingly had their land invaded by muslims were the ones injured...instead we all have to suffer for the poor life decisions of liberals, as usual.

Well I'm sorry, but you're just wrong. It's all about Islam, the return of the caliphate and the war to make those things dominate. Ignoring or deflect the problem will not "root it out" as you say. It will let the problem continue to fest and manifest in ever increasing attacks like today. Folks like you will continue to be proven wrong by reality.

It is not just about Islam, are you really serious that you think other forces are not at play ?

Islam is just a gear in the engine.

Easy there, Rudy Giuliani. Your talking points are showing under your skirt.

Most "liberals" don't want to give the keys to the kingdom to the bad guys. They just want to hold the monday morning quarterbacks back a little while we figure out an alternative to the "we can be safer if we kill everyone else before they kill us!" strategy that we've been using since we first fumbled the 911 kickoff return.

This from the Belgian Vice PM

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (JTA) – In the days following terrorist attacks in Brussels, street celebrations broke out in several places in Belgium, the county’s vice prime minister said. Jan Jambon made the statement about the March 22 bombings, which killed 35 people, on Wednesday during a symposium titled “Terrorism, Israel and International Law” and organized by the Dutch anti-racism and pro-Israel lobby group CIDI, or the Center of Information and Documentation on Israel, in The Hague. Jambon, a rightist politician, made the remark while acknowledging Belgium has a jihadism problem. One of Europe’s smallest countries, Belgium is the continent’s biggest per capita source of jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq, CNN reported. In February, Jambon revealed Belgium’s intelligence services have flagged 451 citizens as jihadists. But, Jambon said, racial profiling of jihadists is ineffective. He also said jihadists hail from various backgrounds, “including doctors, lawyers, and common criminals,” and not only from poor environments. Only one in six jihadists comes from a poor home in Belgium, he said. Jambon urged better pan-European cooperation on terrorism. Jambon’s statement on street celebrations follows criticism of the media’s failure to cover such events, including by the prime minister of the Flemish Region, one of the federal Belgian state’s three autonomous states. Flemish Prime Minister Geer Bourgeois said that shortly before the attacks, which are believed to have been the work of Islamic State terrorists, his region’s public broadcaster did not report on riots by Muslims. The attacks happened four days after the arrest of Salah Abdelslam, a suspected terrorist alleged to have been involved in terrorist attacks that killed 130 people in Paris last November. “It is, to me, highly shocking that after Abdelslam’s arrest, 200 young people of foreign origins hurled spontaneously bottles and stones on our police,” Bourgeois said. “It is regrettable that we saw nothing of these images on national television news.” VRT, the Flemish public broadcaster, said it did not report about the incident for technical reasons and not out of a desire to silence it.

I like Ian Hirsi Ali, and I've heard her speak on the topic before. The video was interesting.

There are peaceful Muslims, individually. But, they seem like the Christmas and Easter or Cafeteria Catholic crowd of their religion. As an ideology, it just doesn't seem to go anywhere good when followed strictly. My mother lived in the Middle East as a preteen/teenager and told me nothing but horror stories about the place. There were some nice people, yes, but the brutality of the overall culture was something that disturbed her/my grandparents. One of my relatives did a lot of business in SA during the 80's and 90's, as well. Nothing I've heard leads me to believe these places are governed by a spirit of fairness or kindness.

These are also often very young, very male and very poor populations. Thinking: young, male, and poor doesn't help. Add globalist meddling that generally trashed the place. Then throw in a religion that got it's start with a 7th century warlord with a penchant for marrying 9 year olds, possibly strange neurological symptoms (I believe earlier Jewish scholars called their founder "The Madman") and converting by conquest's not going to end well. It can't.

I've seen cartoons, shows, videos, books all denigrating Christ, Buddha, Moses, the Dalai Lama, Vishnu and a range of other religion's holy people. Atheists protesters and modern artists dunk the Virgin Mary in blood, feces, urine... The worst that happens is a bunch of little old ladies and a few college students hop on a bus and go have a pray-in. Or maybe the clowns from the Wesboro Baptists (who sane Christians can't stand anyway...oh, and they protest other Christian churches, too...especially Catholics) show up and tell everyone that God Hates All the Little Children...Except Them.

No one thinks insulting other religious figures will get them a death threat.

Individual Muslims (as people) can be and are peaceful, but it just doesn't seem to be a result of strongly adhering to their faith.

I just wish it was OK to DISAGREE openly with a religion or IDEOLOGY without being labeled a bigot or hater.

Disagreeing with and disliking Islam, as a way of understanding the world and thinking about God, seems reasonable. Hating Muslims isn't.

The religion isn't the ONLY problem, there are a thousand layers of problems in the MENA situation. It is a problem, though. It's just not currently acceptable to note that fact.

The Muslim immigration debate is hotting up all around Europe...

This now coming from the former head of the UK Equality and Human Rights Commission

The former head of Britain’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), Trevor Phillips, has admitted he “got almost everything wrong” on Muslim immigration in a damning new report on integration, segregation, and how the followers of Islam are creating “nations within nations” in the West. Phillips, a former elected member of the Labour Party who served as the Chairman of the EHRC from 2003-2012 will present “What British Muslims Really Think” on Channel 4 on Wednesday.

An ICM poll released to the Times ahead of the broadcast reveals:
One in five Muslims in Britain never enter a non-Muslim house;
39 per cent of Muslims, male and female, say a woman should always obey her husband;
31 per cent of British Muslims support the right of a man to have more than one wife;
52 per cent of Muslims did not believe that homosexuality should be legal;
23 per cent of Muslims support the introduction of Sharia law rather than the laws laid down by parliament.

Writing in the Times on the issue, Phillips admits: “Liberal opinion in Britain has, for more than two decades, maintained that most Muslims are just like everyone else… Britain desperately wants to think of its Muslims as versions of the Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, or the cheeky-chappie athlete Mo Farah. But thanks to the most detailed and comprehensive survey of British Muslim opinion yet conducted, we now know that just isn’t how it is.”


One can only hope that we're turning a corner and can get on with the business of limiting Muslim immigration into Europe.
