The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

DECIPHERING THE ISIS MINDSET

DECIPHERING THE ISIS MINDSET


Here we are in Paris, where we arrived last weekend to continue to develop our television and print platform. Before arriving, I read the news that one of the suspects from the terrorist attack in Paris last November had been captured. Not less than three days later – in what seemed to be an accelerated operation – a major attack was carried out in Brussels that has left at least 30 people dead. Belgians are shell-shocked; it has been a long time since Belgium has played a major strategic geopolitical role, so they are wondering why they have been targeted. There is speculation here on the ground that the attack was initially planned for Paris, but changed once one of the major conspirators was arrested.
Paris, as well as Europe, is on high alert, with first responders armed with automatic rifles patrolling the streets. In the wake of the attacks, France had decided to boost security, tightening border controls and deploying over 1,600 additional police officers in an effort to protect access to public areas for train stations and airports, prohibiting anyone without the appropriate identification and tickets. But people are bewildered nonetheless, feeling a sense of helplessness as to why they are being targeted and what if anything can be done to prevent theses senseless murders.

Sunni Islamic terrorism is a symptom of defeat, anger and fear of annihilation. Terrorists believe that the world as it currently exists is not beneficial to their way of life, values or beliefs. And they believe so with some justification. Muslim populations have been utterly destroyed in the aftermath of the Iraq war – due both to internecine violence between various Muslim sects and the invading armies of the West. Civilian deaths occur on a scale that is unimaginable to the West. There are multiple Paris-like attacks every month in Syria, Pakistan and Iraq. So there is a sense that injustice is being done at home to their people, and many see the West as supporting the very regimes that foment such violence.Terrorism is a complex idea to grasp for many of us living in the West. It is difficult to conceptualize, and understandably so. There is a significant gap in intelligence and conceptual understanding of the threat and who they (radical Islamists) are. These gaps don’t just end there but also corresponds to a gap in the tools, tactics and techniques law enforcement (local, state and federal) have at their disposal to deal with radical Islamic violence today.
Saudi Arabia has been a major exporter of terrorism – both in terms of its financial support for ISIS and serving as a (comfortable) home based for the radical Wahhabist strain of Sunni Islam that has formed the ideological backbone for radical Islam. The fact that the mastermind of the 9/11 sects was also a wealthy Saudi prince is not of minor significance. And while the government of Saudi Arabia has been an ally of the United States going back several decades, the U.S. military presence on Saudi soil has not been warmly received by many of the Saudi religious leaders.
And yet, “For every Osama bin Laden or Ayman al-Zawahiri, 50 people are joining the Islamic State driven by anger, not ideology,” said former U.S. ambassador to Syria Robert Ford. And though the ambassador is speaking about orthodox Muslims, specifically Sunnis, it could be applied to any religious group believing that it faces extinction or degradation of its values and beliefs. Let us simply recall the Vietnam War, where monks set themselves on fire – in essence, the two are one in the same.
Sunnis see their recent history as one of uninterrupted humiliation and defeat. One only needs to look at what has occurred and what is currently in process: Palestine, two Russian wars in Chechnya, the 2001 rout of the Taliban, the 2003 Iraq war, which impoverished and disenfranchised Iraq’s Sunni minority, the drone campaigns in Pakistan and Yemen, the bombings of Syria and Iraq, and the complete destruction of the Iraqi Sunni towns of Tikrit and Ramadi.
For Sunni Muslims, their entire universe has been centered on defeats and catastrophe. Beirut, Baghdad, Sanaa and Damascus – four historical Sunni capitals, have all fallen to their enemy, the Shia. Coupled with deep corruption, harsh demographic realities of overpopulation, crippling unemployment, specifically for the youth and poor, along with a lack of quality education have all lead to an environment of anger and hostility.
Many have wrangled over the best course to take in defeating the threat to public safety that these radicalized Muslims pose to the world. There is no easy answer. But understanding the threat demands that we become better students of these terrorist organizations, their ideological influences and their ultimate aims.
