You can lead a horse to water...

It puzzles and infuriates me that our western civilization is at risk because the elite political classes are not willing to devote a few hours to read about Islam, Shariah and jihad.  Khrushchev's secret speech at the 20 Soviet Communist Party Congress in 1956 which was smuggled to the West by a Mossad agent in Poland was considered a sensational coup, but today we have all the information we need seconds away on the internet and no one cares to look.  From the Israeli Labor party to western diplomats negotiating with Iran and Baroness Warsi in England there is a complete disconnect between reality and their perception of it. It takes half a day to read Shariah: The Threat to America  . How many will actually do it?

This morning I wanted to check some facts about George VI ( the movie The King's Speech will arrive here next week)  and it took me a minute to google his speech  from Buckingham Palace on September 3, 1939 which shows that today we can get to a lot of information within minutes. Then I came across an article on the resumed negotiations between western powers and Iran and I thought to myself, how can this be?  With all the information available to us we do not seem to be able to make any use of it.  

Nothing but ignorance can explain the present situation. If the political elites whose policies brought Europe to what it is today believed that they could retain their privileges in Eurabia  then they were wrong because they were ignorant and the information then was not so easily available.  It is today.  What will make them drink? 

Only a few hours ago an incident in Gaza demonstrated the lack of understanding by the West of what is going on and demonstrates my point.  The French Foreign Mister's delegation was attacked in Gaza and a member of the delegation was injured.  However, this part is the most interesting

 In keeping with the policy of the European Union, which considers Hamas a terror organization, Alliot-Marie did not meet with Hamas officials during her half-day visit.

But the French delegation visited a hospital which is under total control of this terror organization, and a member of the French delegation said that she was "shocked" and  "surprised by the hate"  they encountered during the visit. "When one is received in such a manner one wonders should they have come."   

Could we imagine Anthony Eden visiting a hospital in Nazi Germany  in 1938 but, of course, refusing to meet with Nazi officials?
