"Islam is king on a field of corpses."

Last week, Trump did something fundamental for schoolboys and new prison inmates who need to make it known that they will fight back if anyone crosses them. This establishes survival. In school or prison, it is a fundamental article of survival to stand up to the bully in order to get respect. Win or lose. Standing up and striking a blow is, as the saying goes, the best defense is a good offense. Arabs and the Muslim world understand it, so does the Orient, as do the Russians. There exists something more fundamentally attached to our animal past across Asia than there is in the Occidental World. m/r
More tellingly freighted, the toll of the dead in Stockholm numbered Maïlys Dereymaeker, the young mother of an 18-month-old baby. She'd worked as a psychologist at several Belgian migrant centers helping "refugees" whose asylum bids had been turned down. Her killer could have used her assistance: Rakhmat Akilov had had his application for Swedish asylum rejected last year, but the authorities couldn't be bothered to rouse themselves to deport him. She was, in a certain sense, on his side. But he killed her anyway, because that's not how he saw it.

The Incoming Roar

by Mark Steyn  Steyn on the World   

Last week was a fairly typical one in 21st century headlines:
~On Monday, 14 victims were killed in an Islamic terrorist attack on the St Petersburg Metro;
~On Friday, four victims were killed in an Islamic terrorist attack by a homicidal truck driver on Queen Street in Stockholm;
~On Palm Sunday, at least 45 victims were killed in an Islamic terrorist attack on two Coptic churches in Egypt.
In other news, the United States bombed Syria after a chemical-weapons attack, and UK, Canadian and other newspapers reported on the treatment a Berlin schoolboy received after revealing to his Muslim classmates that he's Jewish. Meanwhile, Giulio Meotti wrote for the Gatestone Institute on the closure of 500 churches in London, and the opening of 423 mosques.
The US bombing raid got the most headlines - because, after eight years of Obama, it was unusual.
