Fight them over here

American journalists discover they are not off-limits to the caliphate:

American freelance photo-journalist James Wright Foley has been beheaded by ISIS in a video message posted today online and titled as ‘A Message to America’. Foley, pictured centre and top left, has been missing since November 2012 after being taken hostage while reporting from Syria. ISIS posted the extremely graphic video to social media as proof of their barbaric action. Foley addresses the camera before he is killed and labels the US government his real killers as a man in black robes armed with a gun stands over him. The journalist then leaves a haunting message for his brother, John, who is in the US Air Force. ‘I died that day, John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on these people. They signed my death certificate’. ISIS, which has claimed control of most of northern Iraq and parts of Syria is threatening to kill Time journalist Joel Sotloff unless President Obama ceases attacks on the terror group. Foley’s family including parents John and Diane, of Rochester, New Hampshire, bottom left, had publicly appealed for their son’s release.

The Bush Concept had it exactly backwards. Fighting them over there so we would not have to fight them here was only going to inflame the situation, which is exactly what has happened. The West must fight them here so it can leave them alone there. Islam has no place in the West. It must be driven out again, just as it was driven out of Spain and Austria centuries ago.

I warned about the rise of the caliphate years ago, to the mocking disbelief of some who genuinely believed the so-called Arab Spring meant the rise of liberal democracy in Araby. Now we’re seeing it take shape. The nations of the West will eventually decide it is necessary to ban Islam again, and repatriate Muslims to the House of Submission again, so the sooner it does so, the less bloody the conflict in the House of War will be.

One friend of the Foley family said something important. “These savages have got to be stopped. It’s coming West.” Only it is not coming West. It began coming West decades ago, and now there are millions of them in the West. What is coming is the Second Reconquista. The West is not going to die. Europe belongs to us.
