Must We Really Be Careful What We Do Lest We Offend Extremists? By Douglas Murray (Gatestone Institute).
In Douglas Murray’s book, The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam, he elucidates in a clear and concise manner what madness Western civilization is doing to make itself go the way of ancient Rome.
In this article, Murray uses the celebrity de jour in the UK, Shamima Begum, to tell us how both sides of the political aisle seemingly cannot help themselves. Despite all evidence, those in power cannot seem to fathom that re-admitting people who are un-repentant and have stated clearly their intentions to destroy us is — simply and astonishingly — not in our best interests.
As Murray notes:
Britain, in recent days, has had a rare distraction from its seemingly endless Brexit debate. The distraction, however, has not been an altogether welcome one. It involves the case of Shamima Begum, one of a number of girls who left their school in Bethnal Green in London in 2015 to go and join ISIS. …
Now, members of the British media have caught up with Shamima Begum, who is living in a Syrian refugee camp. The interviews she has given, in which she has expressed no remorse for her actions and has described life in the Caliphate — which included seeing severed heads in trash cans — as not especially troubling, have not helped her in her request to return home to Britain.
The Strange Death of Europe and the West indeed.
