i have been wondering how whites/europeans will react to the ongoing issue of mohammedan terrorism directed against them. here's australia's reaction. kindly note that, yet again, all mohammedan terrorism is connected to pakistan. oops, i lost the link, i think it was a nytimes story that specified that some of those picked up had been trained in pakistan.
let's take a look:
1. the us attacked afghanistan and iraq, established gitmo, and have made it a lot easier to set aside human rights considerations when it comes to suspected perpetrators of terrorism. in essence, the us takes the view now that suspected terrorists have no rights, a priori
2. the ever-dhimmi dutch were startled enough by the assassination of theo van gogh that they are now taking steps that nobody would have dreamt of a while ago. an example: a new law that simply outlaws enveloping islamic outfits like the burqa -- the ban is justified in terms of security threats
3. in denmark, a newspaper has published a series of cartoons that mock the prophet mohammed, and public opinion seems to be pretty much that it is acceptable freedom of expression, and that mohammedans are not going to get to veto freedom of speech
4. in australia, tough new anti-terrorist laws, even though confusing, have given teeth to police operations
5. in france, the result of the rioting is unclear, but it is likely that new laws will be passed to destroy the idea of 'no-police' ghetto areas. a state of emergency has been declared that gives broad powers to police
6. in britain, some mullahs have been expelled and there are new laws on the books to protect the populace from terror
i think there's a duality emerging.
those states that have gone the furthest towards dhimmitude, and those that are getting to have more than 10% mohammedan populations, eg. france and britain, are sort of wringing their hands.
those states where things have not gotten so bad are looking at france in particular and saying, "there but for the grace of god go i". they are taking stern action to discourage mohammedan terrorism.
white christists are taking some action. it'll be interesting to see how this develops. i say this because there may be a tipping point. once whites -- who are very good at lecturing others on human rights -- start seeing that all this multiculturalism is beginning to hurt their nice, comfortable home countries, then they may take stern steps. after all, these are the guys who:
a. perfected racism and apartheid and slavery and the slaughter of native americans, aborigines, etc
b. invented pogroms and hunted jews down like dogs
c. created the justification for imperial plunder, exploiting non-whites like they were vermin
d. created concentration camps for the japanese during ww2
harsh racist sentiments are just below the surface of white nations. so one possibility is that they will start putting in place very harsh strictures against non-whites. (this is of concern to the comfortable middle-class brown NRI populations around the place).
the other possibility is that things are so far gone that certain white nations (esp. france and britain) have in essence surrendered to mohammedans. this means that they will exhibit more and more dhimmitude symptoms and stockholm syndromes. this is also not good for the non-muslim NRI populations in those nations.
so whatever happens, i think NRIs are screwed. this is a scary thought when considering basic self-interest.
but where does this leave india? i think the best bet is to keep a very low profile, let the whites and their mohammedan populations battle it out. it's not india's problem, it is a pure domestic policy issue in the concerned white countries. ideally, india should keep completely quiet. it doesn't affect india, what the whites do to mohammedan citizens of their nations. if india cannot bear to be quiet, then india should mouth mindless pabulum about how important world peace is and couldn't we all get together. india could also offer to be mediators between the whites and the mohammedans in britain. justifying this on the correct fact that british whites and mohammedans both despise india, and that the feeling is fully reciprocated :-)
i keep saying this, india should keep quiet. this is one of the biggest problems that india sufferes from thanks to the brits. india's idiot politicians speak in (what appears to be somewhat close to) english. unfortunately this is understandable to the world's media. on the other hand, if they spoke in, say, hindi, nobody would understand, and so all the idiotic things they said could be spin-doctored in translation. this is what the chinese do. nobody has the faintest idea what chinese strongmen say, and so nobody knows what china is thinking. deuced clever, those inscrutable chinese.
