***The following passage of writing is from a diary entry dated 12th August 2016***
Over the past six weeks there’s been around eight incidents in Europe pertaining to either localised acts of ‘terror‘ or atrocities under the name or influence of ‘Islamic State‘. The most recent was on Saturday August 6th in Belgium – a man attacking two police women with a machete whilst reciting what has become a catchphrase in ‘Allahu Akbar‘.
Before this there were four incidents in Germany, involving knives, guns and bombs. Then the incidents in France – two with knives and the truck massacre in Nice.
Outside of Europe there’s been an attack in Syria killing over 40 people (claimed by ‘ISIS’) and an attack in Pakistan on Monday August 8th killing more than 70 people. At present this remains the most recent incident attributed to the West’s loving creation.
When attacks fall quiet as they appear to have done, the rhetoric of politicians and media outlets fills the void. Such as Donald Trump saying Obama is the ‘founder of ISIS’ – a deliberate obfuscation of the truth – and stories of ‘ISIS‘ held territory in Syria being bombed from the air. There’s also been a tenuous rekindling of relations between Russia and Turkey in a bid to work together to ‘defeat ISIS‘.
Essentially, when attacks do not occur, the spectre of ‘ISIS‘ remains prominent throughout the mainstream. Stories of people having been ‘radicalised‘ into joining the organisation. It’s a choreographed narrative designed to keep ‘ISIS‘ at the forefront of people’s minds.
Amidst attacks in Europe and the Middle East, the metropolitan police in London said it is a matter of when not if an attack in the UK takes place. The UK has been subconsciously prepped, what with a security drill being reported outside the UK Column studio recently and incidents such as the stabbing of a woman in London (not claimed by ‘ISIS‘, but nevertheless speculated on).
By monitoring the news coverage, I’ve seen a pattern whereby Sky News in particular has a remarkable gift for knowing which incidents to grant extended coverage to. When they concentrate on the one developing story, one of two things occurs;
- They immediately plant the possibility of Islamic extremism, or
- They declare ‘ISIS‘ or ‘ISIS sympathisers‘ as responsible, before any full length investigation takes place
Sky gave next to no coverage initially of the attacks in Syria and Pakistan – that was until ‘ISIS‘ claimed responsibility. What doesn’t fit the narrative often remains unreported, or at best briefly remarked upon. The shooting in Florida during a teen nightclub event garnered minimal coverage in the UK – an attack not claimed by ‘ISIS‘.
I imagine it being a situation whereby the media operate akin to a Hollywood studio. They are directed as to where the cameras should be pointing and are there to provide hour by hour coverage once the ‘action‘ commences. It’s a movie screen – one that repeats a familiar montage of lots of police on the streets and people milling around, but no immediate evidence of anything having occurred.
Sky and others use these first moments to play out the script – setting the desired tone to the viewer at home. The Nice attack saw a child’s doll planted in the road. The Munich shooting saw an abandoned pushchair outside a shopping centre. All psychologically driven to manipulate emotions.
The last deadly attack in Europe was the killing of Priest Jacques Hamel in France, on the 26th of July. This followed a flurry of incidents throughout July. August has seen no such incidents. Instead, there is the rhetoric, the spectre of ‘ISIS‘. The boogeyman to drive men, women and children under the bed covers.
It’s been my belief for a while that events like we’ve seen in Europe are sequenced so as to achieve maximum impact. We’re now in a quiet spell. But ‘ISIS‘ is the West’s golden chariot – utilised, then scrutinised, then brought to prominence once more after a brief rest-bite.
It’s worthless speculating on where the next attack will come. But as with previous occasions, it feels like this is a regrouping phase. Allow the press and governmental departments – not to mention the U.S. elections – to continue the work of ‘ISIS‘ by proposing more robust security measures, a more ‘unified‘ response to bombing campaigns in Syria, and devise case studies of ‘radicalised‘ teens who left the West to fight for ‘Islamic State’ abroad.
Coverage of a further attack will be in production. To be premiered soon. Then the recriminations, the scrutiny, then a further attack to assist in devising a new phase to the programme.
I have long thought, though, that at some stage a polarising event will be necessary to advance this part of the agenda. Seemingly isolated attacks that involve relatively few people succeed in instilling fear, but they haven’t as yet resulted in the imposition of widespread security advances throughout individual nations. Granted, security is much tighter than it was fifteen years ago. But we are not, as yet, under house arrest.
We can carry on in the same vain – a stabbing here, a shooting there – but people become desensitised very quickly. Paris last year and Nice four weeks ago showed that the bigger the event, the greater leverage our lords and masters have to manipulate.
News today becomes archive footage 24 hours later. Unless it has the ability to polarise, to shock. Given how methodically attacks are being torn apart by commentators such as Bernie Suarez at Activist Post, it perhaps explains why we are not seeing more intricate operations, those which require extensive preparation.
Perhaps after September 11th and the subsequent unraveling of the official story, and with more people becoming wise to false flag terrorism, it’s harder for the agencies behind ‘ISIS‘ to orchestrate events beyond the current bout of ‘Lone Wolf‘ atrocities. However, the ‘Lone Wolf‘ is marketed by the media as a figure who could strike anywhere at anytime. It is fear based. This in itself has a power, even if attacks remain small in stature. A more complex attack, unless relatively air tight with scraps for overzealous ‘conspiracists‘ to feed off, is difficult to achieve. Particularly if greater numbers of people can interpret the signs of falsified terrorism. Honed and crafted as it is by the West and her allies.
September 11th began a new strand to the agenda towards a militarised state. Fifteen years later and an event to propel this agenda still further – of the magnitude of 9/11 – has yet to materialise.
For it to do so, a trigger point is required. One that galvanises people’s attention. In the model of Problem – Reaction – Solution.
