The War on "Extremism"

9 Tevet 5776

Fourteen years ago, President George W. Bush declared a global war on "terror". This year, that focus changed. Now, the global threat is "extremism". By changing the terminology, they have broadened the scope of potential enemies and made it possible to apply it to anyone who holds fundamentalist religious views.

Look what happened back on the first day of Sukkot...

Launch of Strong Cities Network to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism

Cities are vital partners in international efforts to build social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism. Local communities and authorities are the most credible and persuasive voices to challenge violent extremism in all of its forms and manifestations in their local contexts. While many cities and local authorities are developing innovative responses to address this challenge, no systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.


...The Strong Cities Network (SCN) – which launches September 29th at the United Nations – will empower municipal bodies to fill this gap while working with civil society and safeguarding the rights of local citizens and communities.


As long as they are not determined to be "extremists" in which case, they will have no civil rights, as we've seen here in Israel with respect to the "administrative detainees". Love that language. They're not being tortured, but merely "detained".

... It will be run by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), a leading international “think-and-do” tank with a long-standing track record of working to prevent violent extremism:

And who elected them? It's only a matter of time before Orthodox Jews who hold by every word of the Torah will be labeled "extremists" and will be treated as enemies of the (Global) State. What they're doing here is only a test. This need to be seen to be fair in not laying all the blame solely on Muslims will spread worldwide.

  1. Nice Post. Just like Global Warming became Climate Change. Now they can be right regardless what the weather does. Same thing here the scope change is subtle but has a huge impact on policy and applications in law.

    Islamic Terrorism -> Terror -> Violent Extremism -> Religious Extremism -> Religion

  2. What they've managed to do is take the term extremist, and use it any way they seem fit to further their own agenda. In essence, any view or opinion not in line with Liberalism, Socialism, or progressive, is deemed extremist.
    In the USA, it's amazing that in a short time, one who believes in upholding the constitution is labeled a Constitutionalist. Today that's his label, tomorrow it will be extremist. The singling out of conservative groups and Tea Party members during the last election by the IRS and FBI are cases in point of where this is all headed.
    In the big picture it makes sense if one subscribes to the notion a coming one world government. The trend is definitely less sovereignty and nationalism verses more Global Government. The climate control scam is front and center in pushing this movement.

  3. It's not only Muslims. In fact, it's not even mostly Muslims. As one talk show host recently put it, the Muslims have been "weaponized" by our good friends Esau in Europe, America and around the world. Supported, tragically, by elements of our own government. The deeper I look, the more insane and evil-agenda-driven it actually seems to be...

  4. You are an extremist if you disagree..if you speak the truth. You are radical if you dispute or criticize one of their gods, climate change, political correctness or diversity. You must be lock step or you are suspect.
