Whenever a terrorist attack hits somewhere in Europe or the world, wait a few hours and the police or media report ISIS / ISIL / Daesh claims responsibility. To enhance credibility, they usually say it was confirmed by ISIS news agency Amaq. As soon as this little piece of info is out, the upset populace takes a deep breath and falls at ease. It’s the usual culprits. It’s them, not us. We are fine. We can go back to business as usual.
This in Europe alone has happened more than 40 times since May 2014 – that’s as many ‘Muslim-induced terror attacks’ Western Europe has endured; from Paris to Nice, Brussels, London, Berlin, Munich, Würzburg, Copenhagen, Zvornik (Bosnia & Herzegovina), Moscow, Istanbul, and many more (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_terrorism_in_Europe_(2014%E2%80%93present) ). And almost without fail, the alleged perpetrator(s) were killed, though most of them were not armed and could have been apprehended by police, questioned and brought to justice. Dead men don’t talk. That’s more convenient.
The latest Barcelona terror Amuck-run on the Rambla is not different. It is a case in point and a typical case for confusion. There were several chief-perpetrators suspected and killed. Many names circulated – and, of course, a passport, leading to a Spanish enclave in Morocco was found. The owner of the passport, immediately reported it to the police as stolen, with a solid alibi. But then, suitably his 17-year-old brother stole the passport and left it in the white van, when he fled on foot, injured from an explosion the night before, in a residency some 230 km south of Barcelona – or was that really him? – and several hours after the Rambla assault, he was caught by police in Cambrils, 120 km south of Barcelona in another attempted pedestrian run – and killed among one of five terrorists who happened to be squeezed into the same Audi. Ever wondered, why so many terrorists in one car? – Or was he really one of those killed? http://www.globalresearch.ca/barcelona-the-hypocrisy-of-sorrow/5604767).
By now, the people are really-really confused. Nobody knows up from down in this chaos. Better leave it to the authorities. They know best to handle the situation. Let us go back to normal – until the next terror attack hits – Allahu Akbar – very likely next in a theatre near you, somewhere in this old, purposefully and increasingly militarized police state, called Europe.
What happened to the real and innocent owner of the passport? – Does anybody know? Or can we ask ten ‘official’ sources and get ten different answers?
How come special police throughout Europe apply the same philosophy – kill to shut them up? Isn’t there a police ethics code – shoot only in self-defense? Most cases were no self-defense, as the ‘terrorists’ were visibly not armed. Have European secret and special police forces been receiving collective, well-focused training: no Muslim-Terrorist Survivors!
Why not? – That would also explain why never anybody questions the ISIS claim to murder and mayhem. Why would ISIS / ISIL / Daesh want to hurt those who fund them, train them, arm them feed them? – It’s not even secret any more. Hillary said so already years ago, We created them, now we have to deal with them. Former CIA officials admitted that they recruited, funded, trained and armed them – later the ISIL / Daesh reign was expanded with additional financial backing by the Saudis, other Gulf States and Turkey – and, of course, all the holy western allies. – So, why would ISIS want to hurt the cow whose milk they drink? Strange – isn’t it? (http://www.globalresearch.ca/who-is-behind-the-barcelona-and-cabril-attacks-can-we-believe-the-official-reports/5604719)
Maybe what meets the eye is not reality. Could it be that ISIS / ISIL / Daesh, out of sheer gratitude to its benevolent sponsors have agreed to take the blame whenever a western orchestrated terror attack strikes somewhere in Europe or the world? Can’t be excluded, can it? It’s not even blackmail. After all, lending a helping hand to the Big Brothers, NATO, France, Germany, UK, US of A and many more lesser contributors, but contributors all the same – who keep you alive, would not be out of the world. – Right? – This is all done in connivance with massive support of European secret services, led by the usual villains, CIA, MI6, Mossad.
Is it therefore far-fetched to conclude that European governments are utterly complicit in instigating and executing these ‘false flag’ terror attacks, sacrificing the lives of hundreds of their citizens, just so they can pursue their goal of totally militarizing the Continent? – That they are as faithful vassals following the pattern of their trans-Atlantic partners – aiming at Full Spectrum Dominance – World Hegemony, a New World Order under a One World Order governed by Washington and its Deep Dark handlers? – Barcelona, Paris, Berlin are mere little pebbles in the Big Picture mosaic of world dominion. And the people, the mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children who are killed – they are just menial collateral damage. After all, slaves – what is their value?

Or maybe ISIS is just another (but larger) CIA project? No need for gratitude when orders will suffice.
Three days after Bannon leaves we get this Afghanistan ( read Tajikistan/Uzbekistan/N. Iran) ploy by the 3 Mouseketeer Generals via a Trump speech. How could he be so utterly stupid?
The sequence of events would appear to be something like …..
1) arguments in the White House with regard to whether Trump is going to be Hillary on Afghanistan (McMaster faction) or whether the Trump who was against wars of regime change (Bannon pretty much alone by this point). Argument obviously won by McMaster and the Generals.
2) Gen Kelly, Chief of Staff, was either on the winning side, or just decided that it was too disruptive to have any voices that weren’t Generals involved in the discussion. So, its ‘agreed’ that Bannon would go.
3) Charlottesville delayed the announcement.
4) Bannon was ready to move on, so he calls a left-wing magazine and spouts off about a trade war with China.
5) Kelly takes the hint and Bannon’s departure is officially announced.
6) Trump announces that he’s really Hillary in a suit, and reads the script that McMaster had written for him announcing yet another troop surge in Afghanistan.
In his daily life, Trump is one guy against the entire power structure of the demons. Remember, after his election when Trump could have become something good, Putin chose to keep his distance and allow Trump to sink.
So, suprise suprise, in the story of Trump vs the Evil Demons, Trump lost- just as you would have lost and I would have lost in similar circumstances.
And this is one time when the zionist media did a ‘good’ job (in their terms). After Trump’s election, they sold the ***fake news*** of Putin winning the election for Trump. Under this demonising attack, Putin responded by giving Trump ‘space’- a fatal and profoundly foolish mistake- but a mistake that proves the power of the media.
When the media bashes you, you work hard to prove the accusation isn’t true- and thus act in the way they wanted all along. If Putin had said “eff the media” and rushed to Trump to grab him by the hand, and offered a Russian-American military alliance in the Middle East, the world would be in a very different plave now.
Instead Trump has been broken down and co-opted. No matter how much Trump now bows to the Clinton/Blair agenda, he is further demonised in the zionist press as a racist nazi-loving monster. A vicious circle designed to keep Trump permanently off balance, and permanently seeking ways to get the press off his back.
Trump beat Clinton, which was brilliant- but then everyone who should have rallied around to help Trump let him down. And now Trump is, Obama-like, another puppet of Team Clinton.
Don’t get deluded now Trump just never has a chances at the highest seat of the White house. His campaign rely on populism and demagogues. He never has any political strategies nor intelligent enough to sail through it unscathed. What’s he could make out with his opposition via negotiations and dialogue he do through forces and hard rhetorics which play into liberal globalists hands using their fake media. Now he’s isolated with virtually no allies in his offices and he’s all to blame for having no balls.
If you still think he’s great man just think again just how many support he have now. He failed to pull in Hillary and democrats supporters and he just lost many of his own original supporters for his double down flip flop dumbing. Hillary was bad however Trump just nothing better. The people wins and the neoconservatives failed to put a face of it’s choosing however that is just nothing significant. Can you speak out your opposition to your government maybe risking your life of comfort in a mass protests and rally ? maybe sure but will it work ? questionable. We have seen the Russia interference drama and its fear mongering as well as crazed maniacal imaginary terrorists lurking around every corner of your city. What can you do ? rebel against your country ? you’re a terrorist ! trying to reach third party for help ? you’re a traitor ! The bottom line is that the people of USA their mass just eating too much lies and propaganda far more than it should. Now they got themselves too comfortable to use it even towards their dissenting oppositions.
And lastly how they can’t see beyond any racial, political views or just beyond us vs them the bigger picture just didn’t help. In fact it just get it worse.
Remember, after his election when Trump could have become something good, Putin chose to keep his distance and allow Trump to sink.
This would’ve been “proof” for all those who believe in Russian election hacking. Trump managed to sink himself. He could’ve supported Flynn, but chose not to. Maybe he never had any chance at all. With the Democrats against him and many of his own party against him he can hardly get anyone of “his team” appointed.
@PK, the author
I perfectly agree with your thoughts, as those are my thoughts precisely. Going further, gladio projects come to mind. All those inside jobs aimed at population control and an excuse for more
finger, retina scans, etc.
To my mind Peter König’s article is far too cautious, far too timid.
It is not the time anymore to leisurely ponder the question if it could be that the Elite hasn’t always our best interest in minds. We know it hasn’t. And we have known it for a long time.
We also know that ‘terror’ is in 99% of the cases state terror. Every history book will tell you this.
It is not even true that it is ISIS that always claims responsibility for every terror act, in fact it is Zionmedia who claims that ISIS claims responsibility…
“Is it therefore far-fetched to conclude that European governments are utterly complicit in instigating and executing these ‘false flag’ terror attacks, sacrificing the lives of hundreds of their citizens, just so they can pursue their goal of totally militarizing the Continent?”
It is only “far-fetched” to those that still are stupid enough to believe in the Western Elites’ love for their domestic subjects. What I tend to find more surprising here is that the Western MSM don’t seem to try to implicate the West’s usual list of enemies for the attacks, sheer hoaxes included.
What purpose(s) served by the attacks?
1) Militarize the continents, subdue the civilians in advance of climate disruption.
2) Casus belli for war on the lower latitudes to prevent migration northward.
3) $$$ for MIC
Perhaps, regardless of who created them, IS claims these attacks because its good for their image. Its good for recruiting. They have to convince impressionable and usually young people to not only join their cause, but to die for their cause. Claims of martyrdom and the impression of being a piece of some bigger historical/religious cause help with that. Thus, IS claims every attack that they can, only ignoring the rather obvious ones they can’t claim like fanatical Christians shooting up abortion clinics.
The part that’s become rather bizarre to me is the way that every ISIS terrorist is trained to bring passports along with them during an attack. And apparently they can’t buy clothes with the sort of pockets that zip shut. Maybe having the sort of pockets that will keep a passport from dropping out is against some fatwa that’s been issued?
Very concisely argued and illustrated. This was an article we have needed – Peter Koenig, thank you!
ps..I don’t follow these attacks – you mean they found a passport again? How limited they are in their playbook, how lazy, how dull and mediocre. This lack of innovation is their ultimate downfall.
This combination of military and industrial corporatism at the executive level of government is a definition of a fascist state.
Last November, the American people voted for a radical change, one that would deliver economic revival and jobs at home, while implementing more peaceful foreign relations.
Today, Americans have got the opposite of what they were calling for when they elected President Trump. The implications are blatant and disconcerting. American democracy no longer exists, if it ever did. The will of the people has been subverted by the will of the military-industrial complex. Trump is but a pathetic puppet who is taking orders from the generals and his oligarchic friends in Wall Street.
The so-called “exceptional nation” – the one that never tires of proclaiming its lofty democratic virtues to the rest of the world – has degenerated into a military-corporatist state. Trump’s betrayal is complete and stands out as one of the biggest cons in modern political history.
The television addicts may not be catching on, but a great many people are. This is due to those such as yourself.
In this vein we’ll come to wonder whether the attacks really happened! If it was just a TV montage?
Just curious…Was the journalist Richard Gutjahr there by any chance? He is the journalist, married to an Israeli intelligence operative, who was *coincidentally * present and filmed BOTH the Nice and Munich terror attacks as they were happening.
The people who are willing to massacre more than 3000 of their own people in a single attack (9-11) are easily willing to carry out these European attacks. These attacks are peanuts.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they detonated a nuclear device in a major population center to cause a Shock and Awe effect that will dwarf 9-11, in order to implement maximum surveillance and militarization of their countries and conduct new wars of aggression against any of their target states.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they detonated a nuclear device …
Yep, too many talking heads have been painting such a picture on the wall. I’ve been wondering for a long time when and where they’ll execute this plan.
For surveillance and militarization the current attacks are sufficient to carry out their plans.
Another topic that had been reported with hysteria since around the year 2000 is a new dangerous version of an influenza. So, … for nearly 82 years (since the 1918 flu pandemic) no one really cared about such an event, but in 2000 suddenly everyone panicked?!?
The Spain attack stank of a false flag, and the Deep State in Spain has an unbroken history across the centuries using these methods to control the population. Spain was the most overtly genocidal of all the European Empire powers (until Belgium took that title with its zionist backed genocide in Congo). Spain and Portugal’s slaving activities in South America made the USA seem positively benign by comparison.
Had they simply left the operation as a truck attack, one could have supposed an ‘ordinary’ strike by N Africa idiots. But the passport, execution of stooges who knew too much, house explosion, and ‘plans’ for greater attacks left the false flag conclusion at 100% certainty.
Now Spanish sheeple will accept Tony Blair’s orwellian model for their society as well.
Sadly, even ‘good’ people in power are won over to the argument behind false flags. The logic goes like this. Society, at all levels, has an inertia that favours the Status Quo. But it may become blinding obvious to thinkers that one change or another is essential, and will have to happen sooner or later. Sooner is better for the people than later- so getting the people on the side of change becomes essential. If a ‘natural’ event happens forcing the population to confront the need, the population will now clamour for that change. So why not ‘create’ that event and begin the process- isn’t that what responsible people in power should do?
PS before Blair rose to power, a colleague was looking up supplies of camera chips, and found a company boasting that their products were embedded in tens of thousands of lamp-posts in London as covert spying devices. The IRA attacks in London had conveniently provided the British Deep State with the excuse to begin the process that would end up with the British being the most filmed people in History. Long before the tech was even heard about, all major transport hubs in the UK installed facial recognition cameras – poorly disguised as ‘ordinary’ CCTV cameras. Today, most lampposts in the UK have wide angle cameras on top (which idiots mistake for antennas).
Thatcher was ‘John The Baptist’ to the anti-christ Blair, and changed British society enough to prepare for his rise. Now the world operates to Tony Blair’s demonic orwellian warmongering rules. Even Russia falls over itself to kill internet freedoms in the name of ‘security’. Blair was a child of peak-peace in the aftermath of WW2. He worked relentlessly to make the world violent and war-loving, in preparation for the next world war.
As a consequence, Spain’s highest politicians would not have thought twice about signing off on a operation that would murder innocent civilians. To the leaders of the world’s nations, it would be racist to happily murder civilians in other nations, and then apply a double-standard to civilians in the ‘home’ nation. No- all that matters is that the ‘end justifies the means’. Even politicians that think they reject evil and corruption are too stupid to get why that ‘logic’ serves only the demons.

It’s good someone finally rise this points. Here’s some case in examples.
An ordinary journalist in Iraq walks around his neighborhood just normally like he’s used to do before he stumbled upon Iraq Security and US coalition forces in a standoff against possible insurgents. Not long after fire fighting ensuing and before long the US and friends declared the area clear. Journalist as he is he tried to cover the happenings as much as he could and include a civilians death which happened right in front of his eyes in his report. Few days later a US army knocked his door claimed that he’s a terrorists informant and his report were found in a terrorist websites.
Another case which a man drive down to city to buy goods before he come home to his village burnt down from coalition drone strikes. A little later his name is wanted by the Afghanistan police claiming that a terrorists admitted that he was one of them through a websites and his village just bombed because they are terrorist. A typical coverups after a bogus intel produced a village worth civilians death.
The Police have been granted License To Kill – all they have to do afterwards is issue the Get Out Of Jail Free card – ‘we thought he had a suicide belt’. Meanwhile the evidence trail is conveniently terminated.
Very interesting, as always. I have put it on my page here, please let me know of relevant critique and other relevant links to add to the page. http://homosociologicus.com/western-nations-back-terrorists
