Islamic World Transition From the 'Age of Religion' to the 'Age of Reason' / Politics / Religion

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst the worlds focus today is on the Islamic threat as a consequence of the terror attacks on Paris resulting in 17 innocents being killed that has prompted the world wide 'Je Suis Charlie' marches amongst many hash tags of solidarity of which I favoured the "I am not charlie, I am Ahmed the dead cop. Charlie ridiculed my faith and culture and I died defending his right to do so". #JesuisAhmed

The mainstream press as usual have run off at an tangent by trying to analyse why the three french muslims committed the atrocities by looking at their backgrounds, their lack of opportunity in France etc. However, the very simple answer is that these individuals perceived their actions as playing a part in the fulfillment of prophecy and that they expected that their real lives would only begin AFTER they completed this TEST in this world which is how all devout muslims perceive this world to be, as a test for worthiness to enter paradise for eternity at End Time.

Ron Paul on the Lessons from Paris Attacks / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.

The U.S. Police Threat “Is Too High” / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

The hypocrisy of American police is beginning to bother even law and order conservatives.  The New York Police Department is rivaling the black community in Ferguson in keeping alive the murders of their community members.  

We are constantly reminded of how dangerous it is to be a police officer. A total of 50 police officers were reportedly killed last year in the “line of duty,”  but the police themselves managed to kill 1,029 Americans during the same time period, most of whom were unarmed and innocent of wrongdoings.

France Unity Day - Western Leaders Massive Display of Hypocrisy / Politics / War on Terror

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Hypocrites up and down the line. Terrorists themselves. Leaders who have been stoking the furnace of terrorism themselves, creating terrorists, supplying them with arms, tolerating their education in Saudi Arabia. Hypocrites. All those leaders who have been attacking Muslim countries for years on end and supplying arms. Hypocrites. All those leaders who yell “terrorism” when it suits their grander schemes of domination. Now when there is blowback in Paris, they yell “extremism” and use the occasion to continue and enlarge the war on terror.

Greece Blackmailing Euro-Zone Again, 50% Debt Write Off Or Default / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Following 5 years of euro-zone bailouts (loans) that even after hair cuts (50% writedown's of privately held debt) Greece's debt mountain now totals over Euro 320 billion (175% of GDP) and Greece is about to up the anti once more by electing the far left leaning Syriza party that promises to end economic austerity by Greece being in receipt of a perpetual free lunch at euro-zone tax payers expense (mainly Germany) by effectively defaulting on all of its debts despite the impact of the debts having been watered down to the state that effectively annual debt interest payments are being indirectly paid for by the ECB as the Eurozone's central bank loans Greece money to make debt interest payments with.

Je ne suis pas Charlie - I am not Charlie / Politics / Propaganda

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The terrorist attack on the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that left 12 dead Wednesday in an apparently well organised assault by subsequently identified two French born brothers of Algerian decent, an attack that they said was conducted in the name of Islam as an act of vengeance against a series of cartoons depicting Islam published by the French magazine over a number of years which prompted world wide condemnation that manifested itself in the slogan 'Je Suis Charlie' , 'I am Charlie'.

Islamic Terrorism And Counter Terrorism - New Twists And Turns / Politics / Religion

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

The latest Paris Murder at the office of Charlie Hebdo was a strategic and well-articulated move to give lasting lessons to the enemies of Islam or the Non-believers by the Islamic Terrorist outfit so as to mobilize the sympathy or support of the Muslims all over the world. It has got wide coverage in all medias, Islamic, Anti-Islamic and Secular. Undoubtedly, it has great propaganda value for the Muslim Fundamentalists to create fear in the mind of the people, especially intellectuals and media persons who are criticizing Islam. They are in shock. But it is only a beginning of a new dreadful chapter with greater intensity and impacts.

U.S. Inner City Turmoil and Other Crises: Ron Pauls Predictions for 2015 / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.

It didn't happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised -- physical and economic -- the less liberty was protected.

The Widening Wealth Gap / Politics / Social Issues

By: Submissions

Antonius Aquinas writes: A recently released Pew Research Center study confirms what every thinking American has understood for quite some time: the wealth gap between rich and poor has widened considerably since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008. The study’s statistics probably underestimate the plight of struggling families and individuals compared to upper-income groups as the median wealth of upper- income families totaled $639,000 in 2013, 6.6 times the median wealth of middle- income families of $96,000. This compares with 4.5 times the gap In 2007 between the two groups.

Je Suis Charlie – Virer Les Islamistes - From Blasphemy to Bigotry / Politics / Religion

By: Andrew_McKillop

Criticising the particularly dumb religion called Islam is still a capital offence – as proven in Paris, you can get killed for poking fun at Mahomet. Self-proclaimed defenders of his faith are still at their gory and psychopathic work in Syria and Iraq, but when they meet YPG fighters and Peshmerga of Kurdistan they receive a 9 mm bullet right between their eyes. Stone dead. There are no prisoners and no survivors in this real war against vermin pretending to “defend Islam”.

Savage Murder In Paris Shows Freedom, Western Societies and Economies Vulnerable / Politics / Social Issues

The savage attacks on the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, in Paris leaving 12 dead yesterday shows how vulnerable western societies and economies are to the twin threats of terrorism and war.

The attacks pose threats to our already under attack freedoms – freedom of the press, freedom of privacy, freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, expression and thought.

Paris Terror Attack Underscores a Deeper Islamic Malaise / Politics / Religion

By: STRATFOR

Wednesday's deadly attack against a French satirical publication has the potential to upset relations between European states and their Muslim citizenries. The strategic intent behind such attacks is precisely to sow this kind of crisis, as well as to influence French policy and recruit more jihadists. Even though Islamist extremism is, at its core, an intra-Muslim conflict, such incidents will draw in non-Muslims, exacerbating matters.

Politicians and the France Charlie Hebdo Attack / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

French magazine Charlie Hebdo’s website now shows the image above. In French, Je Suis Charlie doesn’t only translate as I Am Charlie, but also as I Follow Charlie. Let’s. And let’s not allow the US and all the other western governments to blemish the memories of those who were killed today by using their deaths to promote empty slogans about liberty. Because that’s not what Charlie Hebdo stood for, empty slogans.

There’s a long-running gag in the Anglo world that claims French people are not very courageous. We can now once and forever erase that claim. The people who were shot and killed today were exceptionally brave. Of course the comparison with the North Korea/Sony hack situation will be made, but it really shouldn’t. It would take away way too much from the staff at Charlie Hebdo, and add way too much undeserved praise to Seth Rogen, Sony and Obama.

EU Showdown: Greece Takes on the Vampire Squid / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ellen_Brown

Greece and the troika (the International Monetary Fund, the EU, and the European Central Bank) are in a dangerous game of chicken. The Greeks have been threatened with a “Cyprus-Style prolonged bank holiday” if they “vote wrong.” But they have been bullied for too long and are saying “no more.”

A return to the polls was triggered in December, when the Parliament rejected Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ pro-austerity candidate for president. In a general election, now set for January 25th, the EU-skeptic, anti-austerity, leftist Syriza party is likely to prevail. Syriza captured a 3% lead in the polls following mass public discontent over the harsh austerity measures Athens was forced to accept in return for a €240 billion bailout.

What True U.S. Health Care Reform Would Look Like / Politics / US Politics

By: MISES

Matt Battaglioli writes: With the relatively recent passing of America’s new healthcare law; the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), the topics of healthcare, health insurance, prices and reform have been particularly hot lately. This of course does not mean that the controversies surrounding the American healthcare system are anything new. Healthcare prices are getting higher with many hospital visits for certain conditions totaling bills of millions of dollars. Also, the laws regulating the industry are getting heavier by the day. People have known for a while that a solid reform of the system has been in order, though it is unfortunate that most of these people calling for reform have a tendency to find their influence for such reform across the ocean.

The End Of French 'Multiculturalism' / Politics / France

By: Andrew_McKillop

Europe Too
Very similar to the UK, and similar to several other EU28 countries including Italy, Belgium, Spain and Portugal, France's elites engaged a wrongheaded, anarchic and born-to-fail “multicultural experiment' in the 1960s. In the French case this came immediately after its total defeat in France's vicious and bloody colonial war in Algeria (1956-63) aimed at keeping Algeria an integral part of the French state and nation. Today's French far-right nationalist passionara – Marine Le Pen – was a schoolgirl when her father Jean-Marie Le Pen was a French army officer in Algeria, where he lost an eye. He later bragged about his feats of torture and “elimination” of Algerian resistance fighters, already including Muslim religious cadres engaged in a fight to the death “against the white infidels”.
