During his tour through Poland today, Pope Francis spoke out against recent Jihadist attacks in Europe---including one which claimed the life of an elderly French priest. He said that
"The word that is being repeated is 'insecurity', but the real word is 'war'. Let us recognize it. The world is in a state of war, in fragments. Now there is this one war, it is not organic, but it is organized and it is war. We should not be afraid to speak this truth. The world is at war because it has lost peace."
Which statement instantly drew down the wrath of the American Left; for daring to expose the fact that their own policies are directed at ethnically cleansing those who hold traditional values. His Holiness then added:
"This is not a war of religion. There is a war of interests. There is a war for money. There is a war for natural resources. There is a war for domination of peoples. This is the war. All religions want peace. Others want war. Do you understand this?"
Which statement immediately drew down the fury of the American Right; for daring to expose their hypocritical motives in conducting the War on Terror.
What is fueling the terror attacks in Europe and North America is not because there is an intrinsic flaw in Islam, per se, it is that Western governments have flooded armaments and support for sectarian violence in the Middle East. Since 2011, Western governments have flooded Wahhabi regimes like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE and others who have armed brutal proxy wars in Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq. The Wahhabis are ethnically cleansing and enslaving Sunni and Shiite Moslems along with Christians, Jews, and other sects in these regions. It is no surprise then, that these proxies end up returning to the US and EU; armed, trained, and radicalized to carry on the Jihad in the very countries that sponsored them in the first place.
The weapons traffic into these regions is an estimated well into the billions of dollars as well as other organized crime activities. It is well documented that the Wahhabis are engaging in massive narcotics operations. Terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda have been caught manufacturing methamphetamines in both Syria and Iraq and transporting them into Wahhabi countries for export to the West. The Taliban---another Wahhabi gang---is increasing opiate production in US-controlled Afghanistan and shipping their produce to the West. And then there is the issue of the thousands of women and children kidnapped and sold into slavery by the Wahhabi terrorists. Where does anyone suppose they go? Follow the money. Slaves are not cheap; so they obviously aren't going to countries where is an abundance of cheap labor or where sex is easily available. Consider the governments and corporations who do business with the Wahhabi Regimes, and the reader can draw his own conclusions about where these slaves are going.
Pope Francis is right: religion is the excuse, not the reason, behind global terrorism. The Jihad is a product of Organized Crime using religious fanatics as proxies and pawns and hiding behind political policy as a cover. The Pope understands this and so a few governments like Russia's. Until we in the West come out of our state of collective denial and start seeing our own 'leadership' for what it really is, incidents like the ones in France will continue---to the power and profit of the very gangs pretending to fight it.
