For a crypto-Muslim who wants to shove Sharia law down the throats of God-fearing Christian America, President Barack Obama seems to be doing it wrong.
Word came out that UK Daesh member, “Jihadi John”, star of many decapitation videos, was killed in a US drone strike. Not only killed, but, according to reports, “eviscerated”. And reports also state that he was the only person to have died in the attack; no collateral damage was incurred.
Of course, some are saying that it would have been better for him to have been captured and stand trial. While I sympathize with that sentiment, I somehow doubt the Caliph of ISIL would have honored an indictment delivered to Raqqa. And most people wouldn’t want to risk our soldiers to effectuate such a capture. Whether some people want to admit it or not, this is a war in which we’re engaged. You don’t have Miranda rights if you’re in a war zone beheading innocents. So I have no particular regrets that Jihadi John won’t be in the dock in London or New York.

With the new millennium, Europe increasingly became a magnet for migrants. Such a migration engendered nativist movements, racism, and violence. (In the former East Germany, migrants’ hostels were firebombed at an alarming rate. In France, the National Front kept gaining in popularity as the immigrant population kept increasing.)
But what we’re seeing this year is something Europe hasn’t witnessed since the end of World War II. Frankly, it’s something Europe has never witnessed. A swathe of humanity is on the march, and it’s heading for European shores.
