UNBELIEVABLE hypocrisy at the highest levels which threaten the Western world
THERE were two major items of news recently that, although not directly linked, gave me serious pause for thought and strengthened my belief that not only do we live in a world ruled by vested interests, but that there is unbelievable hypocrisy at the highest levels which threaten the very existence of Western civilisation.
The first involved the widespread sexual assaults on women by men of Arab and North African origin during the New Year celebrations in Germany.
This followed widespread coverage over the internet, but largely overlooked by the press, of reports from health workers and independent witnesses, of chaos in German hospitals involving large numbers of immigrants demanding their ‘right’ to health care, and using threatening behaviour to staff.
In some cases, children were simply dumped at hospitals to be taken care of.
If we needed reminding of what many of us have been banging on about for years, that unless proper integration is carefully managed, then throwing large numbers of diametrically opposed cultures together is a recipe for disaster.
Then just two days later we heard of the execution on the same day of 47 Shia Muslims in Saudi Arabia – most of them by beheading.
Forget for a moment the stated justification for this action – that they were guilty of terrorist acts – but just look at the guarded response to the trial of these people conducted in camera by heavily biased Sunni Muslim courts.
The legal system in this undemocratic oligarchy is based entirely on Sharia law which involves punishments such as beheading, stoning, mutilation and flogging.
Much of Sharia is justifiably regarded by the Western world as barbaric and harkens back to a medieval past, and yet whilst we rightly condemn and express our horror at the atrocities carried out by ISIL, our leaders stay strangely muted about the Saudi’s actions.
The relationship that we have with that country is based on mutual convenience and financial interests but make no mistake, like most of Islam they are no friends of ours.
