Nothing To See Here

In Denmark, of all places, two people were killed and five police officers were wounded in attacks at a cafe and a synagogue (where "folks" are said to "randomly" congregate).

It is believed that the suspect, Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, was "radicalised" in prison and released two weeks before the attacks. However, upon further scrutiny, it's more than likely that cultural reasons were in play well before El-Hussein went to jail and on his spree. The penal radicalisation meme is as tiresome as the "lone wolf" excuse or the "mental illness" strawman trotted out to deflect blame or evoke sympathy. If an organised terrorist group can behead twenty-one people, descendants of the Middle East's original culture, it shouldn't be hard to believe that even one man can take it upon himself to commit an act of terror.

So Denmark once more joins the ranks of other lax European nations like the United Kingdom, France (where just this week-end a Jewish cemetery was vandalised), Spain, Belgium and Sweden all of which would rather eat bowls of wax than stare at the problem head-on and deal with it.

Until the post-modern West is ready to admit that, yes, there is violence inherent in the Koran, that Muslims are victims of an oppressive culture and not of any Western (read: Jewish or American) influence, that there is never any en masse backlash after an incident of Islamist violence and that claiming all religions are bad because one is too morally lazy and cowardly to point the finger at the real culprit, these shootings, beheadings, immolations, forced exoduses and violence against girls and women will not go away.

Now let's have no more talk about this bizarre cover-up.
