The west’s most fundamental and lethal divide

The recent terrorist attacks in Britain have exposed once again the enormous divide between millions of ordinary people who “get it” and the elite class of politicians, media and so-called progressives who do not.

In the last three months, there have been three sets of Islamist attacks in London and Manchester.

Five additional such plots have been thwarted over that period. The security service is trying to monitor 3,500 homegrown Muslim terrorist suspects. It says it cannot be sure of preventing more such attacks. It is clear that it is overwhelmed by this problem.

Yet even now people are minimizing, misunderstanding and misdiagnosing the threat – and attacking those who are calling it out.

President Trump drew fire (yet again) when in the aftermath of last Saturday night’s atrocities at London Bridge and Borough Market he tweeted: “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” In the ensuing furor, Trump was accused of twisting out of context what Mayor Sadiq Khan had said. He had merely been telling people, it was claimed, not to be alarmed at the sight of more armed police on London’s streets.

But Khan had gone on to say: “I’m reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world if not the safest global city in the world.”

In other words, he was saying there was no reason to be alarmed that the presence of armed police meant London was unsafe, because it wasn’t. Just as Trump had said he said.
