Author’s note: This is the first of a three part essay dealing with Islamic terrorism and what can be expected regarding Islam’s ultimate fate. These articles are written in memoriam of the 9/11 atrocity’s tenth anniversary and are dedicated to the 3,000 innocent Americans who were murdered on that fateful day.
When Will it End?
Short answer ― It will end when the tipping point is reached.
This tipping point can be defined as follows:
When living with Islam becomes more trouble than living without Islam.
How often have you heard the following?
“Do not touch or move unattended parcels, bags or packages and report them to security.”
Everybody who reads these words has heard a variant of that announcement. It is a now-familiar litany that underscores most modern civilian travel like some sort of off-key drone note in an increasingly odious dirge. All forms of mass transportation involve similar, often intrusive, security measures and, overwhelmingly, one single entity is responsible for their necessity; namely, Islamic terrorism.
When will such public warnings finally be unnecessary? For how long are we supposed to put up with the risk of random terrorist attacks? Will our grandchildren be obliged to beware of abandoned parcels? Will their grandchildren have to do the same? How much longer will the civilized world continue to tolerate this preposterous assault upon its wellbeing and general quality of life?
When will it end?
If it was possible to set aside terrorism-related loss of life ― and it most certainly is not ― the financial cost alone of combating it is absurd. Let us examine just one single factor; increased waiting times at airports. An extra hour or three doesn’t seem like much until you start doing the math.
Some 1.5 million passengers per day originate from American airports. Domestic flights have a one hour minimum wait time and international travel requires an early check in of at least three hours. We will split the difference and use an average of two hours wait. Even though a majority of domestic flights are not international, please rest assured that this slightly top-heavy coefficient will barely compensate for many other downstream factors.
Two hours of wait time multiplied by 1.5 million passengers equals 3 million working hours lost due to increased airport waiting periods. Airport WiFi services do not begin to counteract these losses in productivity because of how fax machines and other appurtenances of regular business life are usually inaccessible near the tarmac. That represents 3 million hours of lost productivity each and every day just in America alone.
The USA per capita annual income is approximately $40,000, which equals a little over $20.00 per hour. With 3 million working hours lost per day at $20.00 per hour, we are now looking at $60 million per day in effective lost wages. The actual cost is probably much higher due to how frequent airline travelers most likely earn a lot more than the national average.
With 365 days in a year, that $60 million per day equates to almost $22 billion in lost annual productivity. Then, calculate the extra costs associated with repackaging or purchasing costly miniature lotions, shampoos and shaving creams to meet low-weight security requirements. Add in the extra expense of purchasing overpriced airport food and beverages because many comestibles cannot be brought through security. These are but two very small examples of ancillary costs related to Islamic terrorism.
Now, multiply that $22 billion figure by the number of nations in this world. There are nearly 200 of them and almost every single one is obliged to employ some measure of air transportation security. While most do not approach America’s size, degree of air travel or implementation, that $22 billion number easily rockets past $1 trillion per year in extra layers of security devoted almost exclusively towards thwarting Islamic terrorist attacks.
In a sense, it is as if Islam has found a cunning way of forestalling its own dismantling at the hands of increasingly vexed Western powers. Those one trillion dollars in annual airline security-related waiting times could finance the overturning of yet one more Muslim majority nation per year. Recall, how this is just the global expense of increased airport waiting times that is being discussed.
For a quick glimpse into a related cost increase in flying, merely examine the so-called “September 11th Security Fee” of $2.50 USD per enplanement. At 1.5 million passenger flights per day in America, that is at least $3.75 million per day, totaling some $1.4 billion per year. There is already discussion underway to double that security fee to $5.00 per enplanement. Once again, this figure needs to be expanded to encompass nearly 200 nations around the world who also use similar fee structures to pay for their airline security apparatus. These collective fees probably hover somewhere in the half to one trillion dollar region.
The overall cost burden of Islam’s culture upon Western social benefit structures, law enforcement apparatus and ― via incessant and frequently frivolous Islamic “lawfare” ― its judicial system, is orders of magnitude higher; as will be shown in the subsequent parts of this article. Taken together, these otherwise unnecessary monetary outlays could finance punitive military campaigns against Islam or, as a less bellicose alternative, sponsor all of the needed scientific research into alternative fuels that could render MME (Muslim Middle East), control of oil production moot and unprofitable.
Those preceding societal factors are just the iceberg’s tip with respect to how intrusive and parasitic Islam’s presence continues to be within Western civilization. The actual sum total costs are astronomically higher and they do not even account for numerous other expenses related to aspects of America’s stunningly flaccid military response to Islamic terrorism.
Not even the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq ― both of which were directed at proven sources of international terrorism ― can be counted as truly effective responses to Islam’s assault upon the West. These so-called “liberations” have gone on to see each country cheerfully adopt shari’a-based constitutions which guarantee they will once again revert to being terrorist manufactories the instant that Western troops depart.
So, when will it end?
After explaining much of this same logic to an unnamed TSA security agent and posing the same final question, she retorted:
“When they want it to end.”
This insouciant yet incisive reply brings to mind the words of author and counterjihad expert, Serge Trifkovic:
The elite class, rootless, arrogant, cynically manipulative, has every intention of continuing to “fight” the war on terrorism without naming the enemy, without revealing his beliefs, without unmasking his intentions, without offending his accomplices, without expelling his fifth columnists, and without ever daring to win.Islamic terrorism will end. It is both unsustainable and an intolerable burden upon the civilized world. Ending it is a matter of obtaining sufficient political willpower and an educated electorate that will no longer put up with ineffectual Politically Correct politicians who continue to ignore, obfuscate or simply deny the need to eliminate such a monstrous drag on global progress.
It is up to the millions of normal Europeans and their American cousins to stop the madness. The traitor class wants them to share its death wish, to self-annihilate as people with a historical memory and a cultural identity, and to make room for the post-human, monistic Utopia spearheaded by the jihadist fifth column.
This crime can and must be stopped. The founders of the United States overthrew the colonial government for offenses far lighter than those of which the traitor class is guilty.
The trillions of dollars annually that are currently being diverted towards combating Islamic terrorism could be better spent curing HIV/AIDS, fighting illiteracy, ending famine and responding to natural disasters. Instead, this vast sum disappears into the gaping maw of a big-government security apparatus whose effectiveness in countering this hostile threat is marginal at best and hideously expensive regardless of outcome. The tipping point is approaching swiftly and that answers the question of--
“When will it end?”
Part two, “Why Will it End?” follows.
