The following news report from Spain is disturbing in more ways than one. It’s not just that young “Spaniards” are being actively being recruited for the jihad in the Middle East — which is bad enough — but also the fact that the Spanish police are dressed like ISIS executioners, with black masks that resemble those of the mujahideen.
Islam-like behavior is creeping in everywhere. The Mafia in Sicily is a venerable example. Now mentally ill pilots commit suicide by plane while murdering hundreds of innocent people.
There are also sharia-like limits on our free speech. We are now compelled to hold our tongues like Muslims, otherwise it’s ghiba. From Reliance of the Traveller, Book R. “Holding one’s Tongue”, § 2.0, “Slander (Ghiba),” r2.2:
Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike…
The same rule has become the binding standard in our speech codes, even where Islam is not involved. Islamic ideas and practices have infected all spheres of life in the West, and most people are utterly unaware of what is happening.

|00:10||escorted by the Guardia Civil, and each placed in a car|
|00:13||and will be taken to another registry|
|00:16||very near this location.|
|00:20||This operation, carried out by the Guardia Civil,|
|00:22||started at dawn, and, as we mentioned, four members of the same family:|
|00:26||the parents, and both sixteen-year-old sons,|
|00:32||[identical] twin brothers, who allegedly were heading to Syria to contact|
|00:37||ISIS members. The sixteen-year-olds|
|00:43||dropped out of school in Badalona|
|00:46||in the past year and|
|00:49||headed to Morocco to study the Koran. Now they’re back, and|
|00:53||as we said, they were about to leave Spain and|
|00:56||travel to Syria, with their parents’ full consent.|
|01:00||Additionally, they had contacted|
|01:03||ISIS recruiters, and their mother was one of the people|
|01:06||encouraging this process of radicalization.|
|01:09||Also, we also learned that the two boys|
|01:13||had an older brother who died last year|
|01:18||on the Syria-Iraq border where he had gone since he|
|01:22||belonged to an IS network.
