Scotland YES 71% - Global Youth Intifada Moves On

Politics / GeoPolitics Sep 22, 2014 - 02:30 PM GMT

By: Andrew_McKillop


71% of Yes Votes in Scottish Refrendum
Under 20's in the Scottish referendum vote of 18 September voted Yes at 71%. The over 55's voted about 65-35 for staying with Nanny England but Duke Franz of Bavaria is biding his time to become King of Scotland.  Its only a question of time you know!

Denying reality is difficult, but we can expect those who profit from the status quo are content that the old in Scotland voted No. Scotland's youth voted Yes and they will out-survive the old. Profiteers from the status quo can therefore fool around, and fool themselves with the English zombie economy for a little longer, but not forever. The time for profiteers from No Change is counted.

Likewise the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. This sucks in mostly under-25-year-old males, and an increasing number of females, some as young as 14-year-old, from up to 25 countries including Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Holland, Belgium and the UK. Although this is not yet openly stated ISIS propaganda, their basic aim is Arab racist dating from more than 1000 years ago - to kill white Europeans and Americans, and especially those of more than 55 years age who are committed to the white bourgeois status quo.

In the hectic days following the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, then-president George W. Bush on several occasions committed a serious political error, soon corrected by his advisers and spin doctors. He said the US would react and respond to the attacks with a “Crusade Against Terror”, not a War on Terror.

Give Us the Crusade
Bush was not politically correct. The official term was quickly changed to War On Terror and in Europe, where political  “correctitude” reigns stronger than in the US, today's term`inology ranges from anti-terror measures to “bolstering friendly states” in the Middle East, Africa and Asia exposed to the threat of Islamic terror. In Europe, politically correct now extends to calling anti-terror actions and measures a process that also aims for community integration, youth employment and improving the rights of women in Europe's vast city ghettos with huge numbers of unemployed recent immigrants, and their offspring, from Muslim and African countries.

Global warming struggle has not yet been mixed and melded into the politically correct “multicultural pie” or pot pourri, but it could come! In France, Francois Hollande is fixated by this crisis, every night he rides out on his three-wheeled Piaggio scooter to visit a wet and willing film starlet to receive the liquid offerings of Head of the French State.

Local mosques in the new multicultural Europe must have a solar collector on the minaret. In the US and Europe however, and only slowly in the affected regions of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and Sahel Africa, as well as Western Asia and India, there is a critically slow political uptake of what the so-called “New Islamic Jihad” really means. This is a youth revolt.

13 years after 9/11, the refusal to understand is a dangerously slow process. India's prime minister Modi is however rather clear on the subject – Modi says that India's Muslims are a Fifth Column which will be eradicated if it threatens Indian Hindu society- the vast majority of Indians.  Muslims in India can accept the will of the vast majority – another word for this is democracy – or they can be eradicated. Rather clear, no?  Talk your way around that one.

Whether we use the term “jihad” or “crusade” we are talking about mass movements featuring heroic struggle. Even the definitions of “crusade” and “jihad”, which are numerous (for example see soon trail away into a collection of racial stereotypes, predicated on aggression and defence against aggression. The “heroic nature” of the action is used to rationalize - that is excuse – the supposedly cathartic mass slaughter which accompanies every single crusade or jihad that has ever happened.

However, this ignores the real reason for mass slaughter – the mass psychology of jihads and crusades and especially the role of children and younger persons.

Youth Revolt
The first European holy crusade, dated at 1095-1099, was more than just similar to the ISIS movement that is ongoing today. It was almost identical. Unlike the later crusades which continued until 1299, the First Crusade was arguably almost spontaneous. It was a mass movement. It was youth based and totally irrational. If you were able to go back 919 years and ask the Crusaders of 1095 what they thought they were doing, you would get answers as rational as you will get from adolescent football stadium hysterics to the same question today! They were on the Winning Side and they had paint on their faces to prove it! That was so terribly great.

It was “social catharsis”. Historically, the First Crusade could be called the first away match in the league series preceded by the home match, inside Europe, of the Spanish and Portuguese reconquista which was an anti-Muslim and anti-Arab uprising. It was focused in Spain and Portugal and simply sought the killing of every single Arab. That way, their Satanic religion would be eradicated.

Possibly, ISIS doesn't know this? It says it wants a new Grand Caliphate “from Madrid to Jakarta”.

The reconquista started before either country existed in about the year 725. It was already 374 years old when the First Crusade started. It had most certainly become an institutionalized struggle against Muslims and Arabs in Europe in that time, but in part was intensified and reheated by Islam's own ideological conflicts, including the doctrinal struggle inside Islam against “neo-platonism and the neo-platonicians”, leading to Ibn Hanbal and the Salafists. and the sunni-shia schism. Several leading Muslim philosophers operating in the future Morocco and Spain were executed for heresy or apostasy.

 They had accepted the European principle of doubt. Islam's own internal ideological jihad probably intensified the growing European resistance, and weakened the solidarity of Arab and Muslim forces seeking to colonize and oppress Europe.

The First Crusade was also a class-based uprising and challenge to the exorbitant powers of the Church inside Euroe – which was itself divided. There may have been economic causes also, and certainly the Crusades had economic consequences (see my article

Spontaneous Youth Revolt
The real initiators of the First Crusade are not easy to identify – but were certainly not the elites, either political or religious. Firebrand lay preachers and self-promoted predicators certainly played a key role in whipping European crowds in several future European states to frenzy – but using a Google search with “Peter the Hermit”, produces the major problem that several “Peters” existed, in different parts of the France of the day, in future Holland and Germany, and the states of Italy of the time. The Church and ruling classes acted to recuperate the mass hysteria, moving a Peoples Crusade to destroy Islam, but early mob killings by semi-military marching hordes, featured Jews and the moneyed classes, preachers, monks and nuns, nobles, and other “collateral damage victims” inside Europe.

The mob will to kill any Arab or Muslim was however very strong. The Papal system recognized this threat – and opportunity - and by 1096-1097 the Papacy organized daily strategic planning sessions for the Crusade in the Holy Lands, from the papal seat of Avignon.

This is the  uber-atavistic stage of ISIS action in Syria and Iraq today. The youth revolt has been corrupted into the Arab racist killing of any “inferior and Satanic peoples” - of course if they happen to not have weapons to defend themselves. Another example of Arab courage and valour!

By at latest 2013, the mass movement phase or stage of Muslim youth revolt had broken out of its Syrian hearth, but institutional recuperation has not yet followed. This will happen. The Sunni elites of the Arab Gulf states, who can be accused of fomenting, arming and financing the Islamic State – only to have “second thoughts and fears” about it when it threatens their own anti-democratic, racist and repressive regimes – of course approve of the Arab racism of ISIS, but can never openly say so!

Youth War
Everybody knows the definition of Palestinian intifada. This was a stone-throwing youth movement in occupied Palestine featuring mostly male persons often below 15 years age. When you are able to give the Youth mob $2 million-a-day from stolen Syrian oil, and give them an AK47, M16 or Famas 5.56 and a rocket launcher, and they become noble Arab racist killers or. Men in Black, they can fantasize that they can now work Apocalypse Now. Perhaps against their Zionist Israeli oppressors, but not against us in Europe. This dirt, like any cockroach, will be eradicated.

We can note that the First Crusade of 1095-1099 was also called the Peoples Crusade – due to its spontaneous origin in several European countries – and its other name was the Childrens Crusade. The children were used as human shields in dozens of set-piece battles against the Arab hordes.

More simply the question is why should Arab racism be any more “squeaky clean”, when disguised under Crony Islamic wrappings, than White racism of the 19th century colonial era? We don't want it and we know what to do about it. Kill an Arab! Drive them back to where they came from.

For 100% sure and certain, ISIS wants that endgame. Being Arab racist killers themselves, they want the Apocalypse. We can give it to them – notably by air raids. Arab air forces almost do not exist – it is too difficult for them to organize!  For Arabs, it is too much like hard work. So much effort before getting back to five-times-per-day prayer!

 Their puny anti-aircraft military ordnance makes ISIS totally vulnerable. They can of course decapitate, burn and starve their unarmed civilian victims – but what do they do against opponents who hit them back straight in the face? For Arab racists this is is a strange experience but of course to demonstrate their “valour” they can use their remaining white hostages to prove their Arab racist “valour”.
