Cowards in mainstream media ignore Islamist barbarism


The most detailed research into the phenomenon of Islamist, terrorist atrocities spans the period 1979 – 2021 and the statistics are quite staggering. Within the research is the admission that the proven incidents of 48,000 plus attacks resulting in over 212,000 deaths are a gross under estimation because the vast majority of Islamic atrocities go unreported and thus unrecorded. The true number could be a multiple by a factor of five. Moreover, there is a forthright admission that lack of data excludes any atrocities committed in Algeria, estimated at circa 200,000 deaths and a best guess estimate of those missing (44,000) presumed dead from the recorded attacks.

It is possible that during the analyzed period there were probably nearer 200,000 global incidents and certainly over one million fatalities. Collateral damage in terms of ethnic cleansing or forced displacement, deaths from starvation, slavery and lack of health care are impossible to calculate. All we do know is that the most vulnerable in our global society have been impacted and our politicians and media have continuously employed and maintained decades of inertia as a constant barrier propping up the moral indecency.

In the United Kingdom and almost certainly in all other western democracies, there is a media agenda to conceal the globally committed, Islamist atrocities for several reasons which require explanations.

The increasing Muslim populations within western societies are an unknown quantity in terms of their fundamentalist affiliations and any negative exposure may indeed have disastrous fallout from that demographic affecting the society that has welcomed them. There is also a comprehensive block of vocal, far left commentators and politicians who are prone to label those exposing Islamist atrocities as racists and by doing so endangering the lives and livelihoods of those daring enough to expose.

An example of this would be the experience of a teacher in Batley Yorkshire just teaching his class about the prophet Mohammed from a cartoon caricature. The teacher was threatened by the local Muslim mob, needed police protection for his life and is still currently in hiding.

Similarly, a Yorkshire Muslim cricketer cried racism at his club colleagues, many were sacked indiscriminately and the cricketer himself was found to have uttered racist remarks but his punishment was simply a slap on the hand, racial awareness course.

Further proof of fear of exposing Islamist linked atrocities was the decades long pedophilia ring among British Muslims in several towns and cities within the United Kingdom. Thousands of white children were raped and abused and the perpetrators known to local politicians, police and the media but there was silence for decades until a brave reporter exposed those reprehensible sadists.

There had been silence for decades allowing the pedophiles to continue and the children were accused of lying. When it comes to identifying crime perpetrated by Muslims, the United Kingdom has lost its moral spine.

We witness gangs of Muslim youths driving through the streets of London shouting “death to Jews” and they are not charged with racial crimes. Nazi behavior is tolerated in the country that sacrificed all to defeat Nazism.

However, the true cowards in all this are local and global media and organizations such as the United Nations who ignore the barbarism and the suffering. As a disciplined researcher I have noted forty-three terrorist acts from January 2022 to date in the Sahel region. These are incidents recorded by the African press but not by any mainstream media channel in the United Kingdom.

Over three thousand men, women and children, raped, butchered and burned alive. All indigenous, black Africans. All slaughtered by Islamists. Silence from the United Nations, the European Union, the BBC, Black Lives Matter (BLM), Amnesty International and War on Want. Naturally silence too from Muslim countries, Al Jazeera and the Muslim press.

Silence is assent.
