Human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali just published a post Paris attacks article in a main newspaper in the Netherlands. She argues that in order to destroy Islamic extremism, Europe must learn the lessons from Israel and should adopt a very strict immigration policy. 

Best of Ayaan Hirsi Ali arguments and clever comebacks compilation. Part 1. Part 2.

The French President Fran├žois Hollande said quite correctly that the attacks in Paris were an act of war by the Islamic State. IS has vowed to launch further attacks on Europe. Therefore the continent must prepare for war and do everything in its power to destroy the Caliphate in Iraq and Syria. Containment and humiliation are not enough. But even if IS is destroyed, Islamic extremism will not. The destruction of IS will even inflame the religious rage for those who long for the Caliphate. European leaders must take a number of important decisions. To prevent more attacks on an even larger scale, the mindset needs to change. Islamic extremists will never succeed in turning Europe into an Islamic continent, but they can trigger a civil war that may turn parts of Europe into the Balkans of the 90s.


Creation of a false narrative is the most successful type of propaganda. The result is an unquestioned, deep seated general belief that is nevertheless a warped version of reality. Since these misdirections are projected on history and the field of geopolitics, the consequences are global and existential.

Ici Londres: Fascism and communism: sister ideologies.

Dan Hannan in a vlog in his series Ici Londres explains how after World War II a false narrative was constructed that conflated Socialism and Nazism, not as brother ideologies, but against each other as polar opposites, whereby the Socialists became the good guys and the Nazis the baddies. The common arch enemy, Liberty, Capitalism was left out of the equation. These things matter greatly, not just in a moral sense, but because it creates a false sense of reality and a lopsided world view. A similar misdirection is occurring today within a segment of Left-leaning Libertarianism that Brandon Smith of in a great article entitled "The Fall Of America Signals The Rise Of The New World Order" calls the 'liberty proponents'.
