After the third attack (London Bridge -Saturday 3 June 2017) in one month the British Prime Minister Terse Mai said that “Enough is Enough”
and with regard to “addressing the challenges of extremism and terrorism (Things have to Change)”. In the first part of this article we said that saying is easier than doing and that a new approach needs to change Londonistan to Only London. Why.
It may help to understand the situation to revisit the one of the most important books on the issue, LONDONISTAN by the reputable British journalists Melanie Phillips.
The publishers wrote in the introduction to the book.
That when London was hit by suicide bombers in July
2005, the dirty little secret inside the historic cradle of liberty was finally out. Notwithstanding the staunch resolve of Prime Minister Tony Blair after 9/11, Great Britain had been the European hub of Islamist extremism for more than a decade. Under the noses of British intelligence, a
network of terrorists and their sympathizers had used Britain to plot, finance, recruit and train for atrocities in the United States and around the world. The scale of this activity was so large that exasperated European security agencies, in a mocking reference to the Afghan training
grounds for al-Qaeda, dubbed Britain's capital city "Eondonistan."
While attention is fixed on foreign battlegrounds,
the war is in danger of being lost at home.
As Britain sleepwalks towards cultural oblivion,
the disorientation of the once-implacable British bulldog threatens its special relationship with America and the very future of the West. Londonistan is a warning to America, to Britain, and to all who care about freedom.
The author started with that “ At shortly before nine in the morning on July 7,2005, bombs went off almost simultaneously in three London Underground trains deep below the streets of the capital. Soon afterwards, a fourth bomb blew a red London bus to bits as it trundled through a leafy Bloomsbury square. (In 2017 three attacks in less than One month)
The carnage was horrific, particularly in the Tube trains underground. As the gruesome task began of collecting the body parts from the wrecked trains and bus, and as the wounded emerged dazed and weeping from the underground tunnels, a shocked Britain had to confront the terrible fact that the appalling phenomenon of suicide bombing had arrived on British soil.
Two weeks later, an almost identical attempt was made to blow up commuters on the Tube and buses. This time—incredibly—all four bombs failed to detonate. Now, though, the British public was even more traumatized. It seemed that Britain was in for a campaign of mass murder targeted at the public transit system, and that the security that commuters had hitherto taken for granted had now, for the foreseeable future, disappeared.
From the moment the bombs went off, however, Britain sought of the Middle East. So, for some time afterwards, Britain told itself these had not been suicide bombings. Eventually, it was proved beyond doubt that they had been. A shocking videotape surfaced in which the bombers' young leader, clad in an anorak and an Arab keffiyeh, calmly declared that suicide bombing was the only way to make Britain acknowledge Muslim grievances—all in a broad Yorkshire accent.
There was now no getting away from the fact that British Muslims had turned themselves into human bombs to murder as many of their fellow citizens as possible. to deny their full implications. For it quickly became clear that the bombers were all British. The realization that British boys would want to murder their fellow citizens was bad enough. But the thought that they would do so by using their own bodies as human bombs was a horror that people had assumed was confined to the mystifying passions of the Middle East.
