Remembering Victims of Terror – and Forgetting Some Others
The killings in Paris is not at all the worst terrorattack in Europe since London – It’s just a very convenient excuse for the media to stir up hate towards Muslims… It is very easy for the hating and the scared to fall prey to the hideous rhetoric’s used now by the western media, whose aim is to demonize Muslims in general – Remember that the western intelligence services have orders from their ‘bosses’ to ‘set up the social climate’ through which they want to take away all our rights!…
“…So they don’t have know if the war is going well or bad, they just have to know that they must keep up the ranting and beating of the War Drum to keep the Proles in line, and make sure we are scared enough to turn over all the rights to the ‘inner party’.” (from THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF OLIGARCHICAL COLLECTIVISM by Emmanuel Goldstein in George Orwell’s ‘1984’)
From the CBS News website, at least seven hours after it had been pointed out that the Charlie Hebdo massacre was not the worst terror attack in Europe since 2005.
This is the worst terrorist attack in Europe since the attacks in London in July of 2005. We haven’t lost this many people since that attack.
So apparently Morell doesn’t remember the bloodbath in Norway in July 2011, when Anders Breivik killed eight people by bombing government buildings in Oslo and then murdered 59 others, mostly teenagers, at a youth camp associated with the Labour Party. This was actually a deadlier attack then the London bombings, which killed 56.
Breivik said he was motivated by opposition to Muslim immigration, citing in his manifesto (Extra!,9/11) Islamophobic blogger Peder Jensen on the need for violence to “demonstrate how serious the situation is, and force other Western nations to ban Muslim immigration and pressure Muslim citizens to assimilate or leave.”
The ability of supposed terrorism experts to forget major attacks is remarkable (Extra!, 3/10). In Morell’s case, it’s not hard to imagine why he forgot Breivik’s killing spree. Describing the attack on the French satirical paper, Morell said:
The motive here is absolutely clear. Trying to shut down a media organization that lampooned the prophet Mohammed. So no doubt in my mind this is terrorism.
Breivik’s motive was certainly not shutting anyone down for lampooning Mohammed. So perhaps, in Morrell’s mind, it doesn’t count as terrorism?
As Ali Gharib pointed out, the New York Times (1/7/15) quoted Morell’s claim about the Charlie Hebdo attack being Europe’s worst since 2005 without contradiction. So apparently no one there remember Breivik, either. (Though the Times‘ website did run an AP piece that included the Norway slaughter among other “terror attacks in Western Europe.”)
“Breivik’s motive was certainly not shutting anyone down for lampooning Mohammed. So perhaps, in Morrell’s mind, it doesn’t count as terrorism?” Well of course that wouldn’t count , it wasn’t a Muslim doing the shooting causing terror, it was a White Male Christian who was terrified of life, so he would be the victim, not the 77 people he murdered (according to the powers that be). I mean how can you expect these people to maintain the Level of Terror, and then use that to remove all rights, if you don’t give the people an enemy to be terrified of.

THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF OLIGARCHICAL COLLECTIVISM
by Emmanuel Goldstein
Chapter III War is Peace
The social atmosphere is that of a besieged city, where the possession of a lump of horseflesh makes the difference between wealth and poverty. And at the same time the consciousness of being at war, and therefore in danger, makes the handing-over of all power to a small caste seem the natural, unavoidable condition of survival.
Even the humblest Party member is expected to be competent, industrious, and even intelligent within narrow limits, but it is also necessary that he should be a credulous and ignorant fanatic whose prevailing moods are fear, hatred, adulation, and orgiastic triumph. In other words it is necessary that he should have the mentality appropriate to a state of war. It does not matter whether the war is actually happening, and, since no decisive victory is possible, it does not matter whether the war is going well or badly. All that is needed is that a state of war should exist. The splitting of the intelligence which the Party requires of its members, and which is more easily achieved in an atmosphere of war, is now almost universal, but the higher up the ranks one goes, the more marked it becomes. It is precisely in the Inner Party that war hysteria and hatred of the enemy are strongest. In his capacity as an administrator, it is often necessary for a member of the Inner Party to know that this or that item of war news is untruthful, and he may often be aware that the entire war is spurious and is either not happening or is being waged for purposes quite other than the declared ones: but such knowledge is easily neutralized by the technique of doublethink. Meanwhile no Inner Party member wavers for an instant in his mystical belief that the war is real, and that it is bound to end victoriously, with Oceania the undisputed master of the entire world.
So they don’t have know if the war is going well or bad, they just have to know that they must keep up the ranting and beating of the War Drum to keep the Proles in line, and make sure we are scared enough to turn over all the rights to the ‘inner party’.
Emmanuel Goldstein’s ominous face on a telescreen is a character in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. He is the principal enemy of the state according to the Party, depicted as the head of a mysterious (and possibly fictitious) organization called “The Brotherhood” and to have written the book The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism. He is only seen and heard on telescreen, and may be a fabrication of the Ministry of Truth.
