Unfortunately, we were unable to record the podcast this weekend. Dr. Don had company, so he was unable to join us. We’ll be back, however, next week with a brand new episode full of high jinx and laughter. While you’re waiting on the next Episode of Kilos of Craic, have a listen to last weeks show. Thanks again for subscribing, listening, and watching the show! 🙂
You will not get the word, “Sorry” out of me very often. I published a post early this morning expressing my own self pity and woes. Writing is therapeutic, but I never intended to cause any drama. I have removed the post. We’re all dealing with our own battles. I should’ve took that into context. I am sorry I caused anyone any stress or worry. It was not my intention. I thought I had social media and subscribers disabled on it but apparently not. I had a bad day. We all have them. I’ll be back soon.
Exquisiteness, youth and brilliance in motion,
Her purest of thoughts, celestial notions,
Forging perceptions of wonder and desire,
The heart skips as fanciful lips fervently enquire.
Her mystique, spirit, heart and soul, so tranquil,
Her adoring smile rushes forth the lovers quill,
Her ways of caring, nods of affection,
Beauty and grace; a tantalising deception.
She evokes love and kindness, from deep inside,
A deluge of emotions, setting forth a loving tide.
She gingerly paints a world so serene
That life could never be routine.

In my last post from over a week ago (Apologies), I discussed the terrorist attack in Manchester in a heated manner. But, everything I said had data to back it up. I do not and will not post information that I don’t have sources to back it up with.
First of all, I’d like to point out that I am not an Islamic Theologian. However, since 9/11, I have read some of the Qur’an and Hadiths. There are some real gems in the Hadiths, particularly in Sihih Muslim that we’ll talk about at a later date. I studied these texts to better understand the mindset of people that will readily blow themselves up.
As Sun Tzu wrote, “Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories”.
I don’t consider all Muslims my enemy, but I do consider it important to know the history behind the Islamic Extremist that would readily kill me or tax (Jizya) me to death for being a Christian.
Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world fast from sunrise until sunset. What you may not be told is that they are allowed to feast during the night. This in and of itself is confusing. When I have fasted in the past for three days, it was for three days and nights.
In the year of 2017, Ramadan started on the 27th of May and ends on the 24th of June. It is considered a holy month, yet as you will see below, it clearly isn’t. For the entire month of Ramadan, I will be listing every single Islamic Terrorist Attack in the world. Some are against Christians, while others are against other Muslims. I have verified all of the sources as best I can without seeing the attacks myself. Come back during the month to get updates.
26th of May, 2017 28 Coptic Christians were gunned down in cold blood while riding a bus on a pilgrimage to a Monastery.
Claiming to be security officers, the gunmen ordered the passengers to get out. They separated the men from the women and children, and instructed them to surrender their mobile phones. They told the men to recite the shahada, the Islamic declaration of faith.
When the men refused, the gunmen opened fire.
28th of May, 2017 Daesh (ISIS) killed 40 civilians whilst trying to escape starvation in Mosul, Iraq.
30th of May, 2017 ISIS murders 31 people at an Ice Cream Shop with a car bomb in Baghdad, Iraq.
30th of May, 2017 ISIS kills 17 and wounds at least 40 more in mortar attack in the town of al-Joura in the eastern province of Dayr-al-Zawr, Syria.
31st of May, 2017 The Haqqani network (Taliban Affiliates) suicide attacker drove into the diplomatic quarter of Kabul, Afghanistan and set off explosives that killed 90 civilians and injured 400.
1st of June, 2017 1 Kurdish Refugee in Olenburg, Germany was killed for smoking during Ramadan!
2nd of June, 2017 9 people were killed when two children, aged 10 and 15, carrying explosives blew themselves up near a camp in Cameroon that housed displaced people from Nigeria. Another Boko Haram attack into Cameroon.
3rd of June, 2017 At least 20 were killed at a funeral in Kabul, Afghanistan, when three suicide bombers blew themselves up. Almost 100 more were injured during the attack.
3rd of June, 2017 At least 7 people were killed in London, England, when three Jihadists used a van to plow through at least 20 people on London Bridge and proceeded to jump out and stab people in the nearby Borough Market. 48 were injured during the attack, 20 of those are still critical.
That is 220 men, women, and children murdered at the hands of Islamic Extremists in a month that is supposed to be Holy. That’s not even including the dozens of accounts of terrorism around the world that I can’t verify, and it doesn’t include the 28 Coptic Christians from the day before Ramadan started.
UPDATE ! 12:00PM EDST: ISIS claims responsibility for the Terrorist Attack.
UPDATE II 12:27PM EDST: Manchester Police Chief has confirmed that Salman Abedi was the suicide bomber.
UPDATE III 6:00PM EDST: Sources are now saying that 119 people were injured due to the terrorist attack.
Around 7:00PM last night, I sat down at my desk to catch up on the news of the day and read a few blogs. I keep a live twitter feed on my desktop and noticed a flurry of tweets with the hashtag #Manchester, so being the curious gent I am, I started reading the tweets and discovered to my horror that there was a terrorist attack in Manchester. At this time, 22 young people, the youngest was 8, were slaughtered in this attack. Fifty nine more were injured during the attack, some very serious and twelve under the age of sixteen.
I read article after article, some calling it a Terrorist Attack and others choosing to use the PC term, “Incident”. This was an attack intended to cause Terror across the land, thus a terrorist attack. This type of political correctness is sadly predictable amongst the Western Press.
The press is partly to blame for this attack and have blood on their hands this morning. They keep stirring the pot, when there is nothing to stir. They speak of racism against Muslims, when the idea of being racist against ever group of people on the planet is preposterous. In case you didn’t know, there is everything from white Muslims to Black Muslims and everything in between. Unfortunately, people do not understand that they make more money by stirring the pot with nonsense.
This attack was not on soldiers or oppressors, it was a heartless and cowardly attack on innocent teenagers and children. As my President, Donald J. Trump, said a while ago:
I won’t call them Monsters, because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them, from now on, Losers, because that’s what they are. And we’ll have more of them, but they’re losers.
The suicide bomber and all like him are cowards, and as the president said, “Evil losers”. Anyone who would harm innocent people, especially children, doesn’t deserve to exist! My thoughts and prayers are with the British people during this horrific time.
The sad fact is that this could’ve been prevented. According to various reports and lists, over twenty one thousand people were killed worldwide in Islamic (extremist) Terrorist Attacks. Islamic extremism is a huge issue in the world. That’s a fact. The data clearly shows that it is a massive problem and must be dealt with head on. You can call me an Islamophobe, if that is all that your brain can espouse, but you would be wrong. Data and the blood of innocents doesn’t lie.
I don’t hate Muslim people, but I have no use for the Islamic sect of blood and war. That is my own personal opinion, but I still treat Muslims with the same respect that I show to everyone else. There are good and bad people in every religion and sect, but Christians didn’t cowardly slaughter 21,000 people last year. The Muslim world has a huge problem and better deal with it. Otherwise, there will be another Crusade of the like that has never been seen before.
Western people have been fighting for freedom for over four thousand years. We have fought for freedom of expression, art, literature, philosophy, and the like for a millennia, yet in the last fifty years we have given it away for political correctness. Western people are squishy and can take a hit or two with a smile, but there comes a point when all bets are off and the smile fades to a scowl of revenge and a fist filled with fury. I don’t want us to get to that point
I am a Christian. Jesus teaches us to love everyone, especially those that hate us. That is difficult in times like these. I do not want the sword of fate and fury to be unsheathed, but if these attacks continue, the tip of the spear will be the last thing these cowardly Terrorist will see.
Germany accepted over two million people in the last two years. You can’t bring people from a different part of the world with a totally opposing culture to your country without exposing your country to attacks. There were nine Terrorist attacks in Germany in 2016.
One day the Western world will have to wake up from this liberal Utopian dream. I only hope that it is not too late to save our grand ideals, history, and freedom.
I’ll leave you with the words of the Honourable Sir Winston Churchill:
Never give in – never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.
P.S.: You may notice that there isn’t a little ad on this post. I don’t believe that you or I should profit in the slightest from the evil and heinous act that took place last night. Thank you and God Bless.
