The mass murder and wounding of 97 Muslim worshipers in Christchurch, New Zealand (NZ) which took place on Friday, March 15, 2019, has profound political, ideological and psychological roots.

First and most important, Western countries led by the Anglo-American world has been at war killing and uprooting millions of Muslims with impunity over the past thirty years. Leading media pundits,political spokespeople and ideologues have identified Muslims as a global terror threat and the targets of a ‘war against terror’. On the very day of the NZ massacre, Israel launched large-scale air attacks on one hundred targets in Gaza. Israel has killed several hundred and wounded over twenty thousand unarmed Palestinians in less than two years. The Israeli massacres take place on Friday the Muslim Sabbath.

Islamophobia is a mass ongoing phenomenon which far exceeds other ‘hate crimes’ throughout the west and permeate Judeo-Christian cultural-political institutions. Western and Israeli political leaders having imposed extremely restrictive immigration policies – in some countries a complete ban on Muslim immigrants. Israeli goes a step further by uprooting and expelling long-standing Islamic residents. Clearly the NZ murderer followed the Western/Israeli practice.

Secondly, in recent years, violent fascist and white supremacy thugs have been tolerated by all the Western regimes and are free to propagate violent anti-Muslim words and deeds. Most of the anti-Muslim massacres were announced in advance on the so-called social media such as Twitter, which reaches millions of followers.

Thirdly, while the local and federal police collect ‘data’ and spy on Muslims and law-abiding citizens, they apparently fail to include self-identified murderous anti-Muslim advocates.

Such as the case in the recent New Zealand mass murderer, Brenton Torrant.

The police and NZ Security Intelligence Services did not keep files and surveillance on Torrant, despite his open embrace of violent white supremacy and leading supremacists including the Norwegian Anders Brevet murderer of over 70 children-campers.

Torrant published a 74 page anti-Muslim manifesto easily available to anyone with a computer – even a dumb cop– let along the entire New Zealand security forces. Torrant planned the attack months in advance, yet he was not on any ‘watch list’.

Torrant had no trouble getting a gun license and buying a dozen high-powered weapons, including the material for improvised explosive devices (IED), which the police later discovered attached to a vehicle.

Why were the Police Late

The Al Noor Mosque which suffered the greatest number killed and wounded was in downtown Christchurch less than 5 minutes from the police headquarters – yet the police took over 36 minutes to respond. The white supremacist was allowed time to murder and maim; to leave the mosque and return to his car; reload and re-enter the mosque; empty his ammo on the Muslims worshipping—- using a civilian version of a M16; drive off to the Linwood Islamic Center and slaughter and maim several more Muslim worshipers, before the police finally appeared on the scene and apprehended him.

The mayor praised the police! One might suspect the authorities were in connivance!

What accounts for the total absence or failure of the political authorities and security forces: the lack of prior investigation; the delays at the time of the crimes; and the lack of any self-criticism?

The Rise of the Anti-Immigrant anti-Muslim Far Right

ORDER IT NOW

The Brenton Torrants’ are proliferating around the world and not because they are mentally disturbed or self-induced psycho paths. They are less products of white supremacy ideology and more likely products of the Western and Israeli wars against Muslims – their leaders provide the rationale, their methods (weapons) and claims of immunity.

Western regimee keep files on environmentalist and anti-war protestors but not on anti-Muslim supremacists, openly preparing war against ‘invading’ Muslim immigrants – fleeing US and EU war on the Middle East.

The police take a half-minute to respond to the shooting of a police officer. They do not allow police killers to shoot, re-arm, shoot and move on to another police target.

I do not believe the delays are local police negligence.

The massacre was a result of the fact that the victims were Muslims, in a mosque. The tears and wreaths, the prayers and flags after the fact do not and will not change the murder of Muslim people.

Educational campaigns to counter Islamophobia may help, if and only if effective state action is directed against the Western and Israeli wars against Islamic countries and people.

Only when Western elected officials end imposing special restrictions against so-called ‘invading’ Muslims, will ‘White supremacists’ and their ideological offspring cease recruiting followers among otherwise normal citizens.

Massacres at mosques and crimes against individual Muslims will cease to occur when imperialist states and their rulers stop invading, occupying and uprooting Islamic countries and people.

    Muslims suffer no official persecution in the West.

    Grooming gangs – covered up by the authorities.

    Cologne rapes – covered up by the authorities.

    London tube bombings – called power surges until the bus bombing made that lie untenable.

    NZ shootings – immediate outpouring of hysteria, and nation-changing legislation rushed through in the hoof by a teenage PM.

    None of those injured, as far as I can tell, were native born New Zealanders, with some only having been in the country for less than three months. Compare this to typical Islamic terror attacks (such as Ebba Akerlund who the shooter drew attention to) who were native born and killed in their own countries. A completely innocent native population of people are being killed by foreign agents and yet we are supposed to grieve for those killed? If they had stayed in their countries and kept to themselves they would be alive today and that should be the lesson. They are not New Zealanders, flying to a country and stepping on their soil does not make them a legitimate part of society. What’s even more disgraceful is using taxpayer dollars to pay for all the funerals of the victims – holding the productive and largely white population – responsible for the outcome.

  5. Educational campaigns to counter Islamophobia may help, if and only if effective state action is directed against the Western and Israeli wars against Islamic countries and people.

    Hmm, “state action” against the very state making war? Now how would that be done?

    OK, you propose to hold counter Islamophobia seminars for the governing politicians to stop them hating on all those muslim countries that they bomb. Good! They need them. And hurry the hell up, they’re already planning to dump on the most Islamic state of all, the Islamic Republic of Iran. Go tell them to go hug the mullahs and Ayatolla instead of spitting threats and ultimatums at them.

    But they already have these counter Islamophobia programmes prepared, except not for themselves but for western citizens only. And that excludes Israeli citizens (despite them singing in the western Eurovision); they’re most happy for them to remain islamophobic.

  6. Only when Western elected officials end imposing special restrictions against so-called ‘invading’ Muslims, will ‘White supremacists’ and their ideological offspring cease recruiting followers among otherwise normal citizens.

    Hmm “end imposing special restrictions against so-called ‘invading’ Muslims”??? Like what? Completely remove all border restrictions so they can truly flood in? Yeah, there’ll soon be no whites left for the supremacists to recruit from.

    And what do you even mean by “otherwise normal citizens”? Those who wish to hand their countries and homes to foreigners who just turn up because you’ve ended imposing any restrictions against them?

    Are you sure you haven’t been drinking? You’re an “otherwise normal citizens”, are you?

  7. Massacres at mosques and crimes against individual Muslims will cease to occur when imperialist states and their rulers stop invading, occupying and uprooting Islamic countries and people.

    Hmm, I was going to agree with this but won’t. Did you check how many massacres at mosques are carried out by muslims themselves in muslim states not under attack by western imperialists, like in Pakistan and Egypt? A hell of a lot more than the odd attack by a white person in a western country. And if you open the flood gates they’ll just transfer their inter-mosque wars to the west too.

    Oh well, there are many more other inaccuracies and errors of judgment, but I’ll leave it at that.

    #2 gave you some advice. You could have done a better job.

    But violence begets violence and it all sucks, and count me out when it comes to taking a side.

  9. Petras doesn’t understand the schizophrenia of the Anglo-Zionist Empire. The mass murder of Muslims is OK as long as it’s done within the traditionally Islamic world by the US, KSA, and Israel. We hypocritically denounce the Chinese and Burmese for far lesser atrocities. In the West, however, Muslims are a protected class. With very few exceptions, anti-Muslim terrorism is only practiced by governments or by other Muslims.

    Quite correct but is it is really “schizophrenia”? I’d say no.

    These globalists are actually the true vilest racists there are, despite whatever they claim to be, and whatever ideology they purport to have and promote is just a tool they hypocritically use to serve their own ends. In their globalist vision where borders don’t matter and everyone is the same, the lives of those muslims in some third world country should be of the same value as the lives of anyone anywhere, yet when they move to the west they are somehow immediately promoted in value, so a thieving illegal rapist in Stockholm is valued by them more than 10 or 100 engineers or doctors murdered by western bombs in Baghdad. But then anyone persecuted by a regime they have in their cross-hairs suddenly rises in value too, like the muslims in Myanmar or China, but the Shiites in Saudi Arabia not much. And to some of these globalists a few Jews anywhere are probably worth more than the entire population of Gaza, well I maybe exaggerating, lets say half the population of Gaza.

    On the other hand a true nationalist values his own people more, while perhaps still valuing others too, but maybe not as much, or not at all. Even if this may be somewhat wrong or immoral from a religious egalitarian standpoint, it seems more honest than the unprincipled and duplicitous globalist standpoint.

  13. @obwandiyag

    Its only fault is that it is too gentle on the troglodytes.

    Do you mean the literal ones living in caves of Tora Bora like OBL and his pack of murderers? I suppose you mean those living in modern caves of concrete tower blocks who go under the labels of “racists” or “white nationalist”. That depends on the view one has as I explain above. And if these two types of troglodydes are kept apart I don’t think we’d have much of a public safety problem, at least as far as walking around western streets goes. That still leaves a problem for all those walking streets elsewhere, outside the West, and I don’t think these types of low-end white racists and nationalists are any problem for them whatsoever.

    A globalist should keep this mind and work it from there. But a nationalist already knows. But as I mentioned earlier, maybe the globalist knows it too but then he likes to meddle and make trouble everywhere as the world is his oyster.

    Because Muslim terrorists aren’t really that interested in killing the infidel. They are interested in dying. They want to get their ticket punched to get into heaven, which means dying while committing jihad. It’s basically suicide by cop.

    Should there ever be a large-scale land war, the west vs Islam, the smart thing to do would be to openly set up a meat grinder and challenge the muslims to attack, boast that they will face certain death. All the little jihadis with guilty consciences about having once dunk a beer or eaten pork or having once skipped payer time will run into the maw of it, yelling “Allahu Akbar” and doing their equavalent of the fist-pump as they die. “W00T! Heaven, here I come!”

    Police know that the culprit is not going to still be there when they arrive at the scene of the shooting of a police officer.

    If you want the police to immediately rush to a location, don’t tell them there is an active shooter there with an automatic rifle.

    There is no valid reason for Mohammedans to be in countries like New Zealand. Mr Petras himself admits the Moslem world is a more liveable place.

    Muslims basically suck at killing and they suck at terrorism.

    Moshe Dayan’s terse reply to the question of the secret to winning wars: “Fight Arabs.”

  20. This guy is a mercenary, working for the US/Israel, was probably trained in Ukraine with the Azov Battalion “Neo-nazis”. These dupes are being used for US and Israeli geopolitical goals just like ISIS/Al Queda. Ultimately to stir up the next big war, clash of civilizations, Christians vs. Muslims. The Alt-right here in America is no different, being promoted/funded by Zionists, CIA/Mossad for same purpose. Just as the US has dumped ISIS now that they are through with them, they’ll dump these groups when they’re no longer useful. Anders Breivik the Norway shooter from 2011 who was a Christian Zionist and Freemason. The guy was in Turkey around the time of the coup attempt on Erdogan, many other places that no normal person should have been.

    What seems strange is them getting caught and arrested, did he actually get caught? They had his face blurred out in the courtroom photo. Are the Norway and New Zealand Govt. complicit and going along with the “narrative”. Maybe these guys aren’t in custody at all? Its pretty clear the govt. and media are lying, no amount of gun control will stop this if the CIA are the ones responsible.

    Heres some articles I’ve been reading that pretty much prove all this to be true. Pretty sad that none of the puppet politicians or MSM will call this BS out, just keep screaming about “White supremacists” and “White nationalists”, when the CIA and Israel intelligence are 100% responsible for the creation of these groups. All the fake outrage about dead Muslims while they’re killing millions of Muslims in their war of terror.

    In the wake of the New Zealand mosque attacks, links have emerged between the shooter, Brent Tarrant, and a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist, white supremacist paramilitary organization called the Azov Battalion. Tarrant’s manifesto alleges that he visited Ukraine during his many travels abroad, and the flak jacket that Tarrant wore during the assault featured a symbol commonly used by the Azov Battalion. Tarrant’s transnational ties go beyond Ukraine, however. Tarrant claimed that he was in touch with Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian terrorist, and he took trips throughout Europe, including the Balkans, visiting sites that symbolized historical battles between Christians and Muslims.

    The Azov Battalion has received not only U.S. weapons, but also volunteer American military veterans like Brian Boyenger. “It’s not illegal,” Boyenger told a Ukraine Today interviewer of his presence in an Azov camp. “From a U.S. perspective, as long as you’re not fighting with a terrorist group or committing war crimes or things like that. It is legal — mostly I’ve been serving as kind of like an advisor.”

    INTELBRIEF: THE TRANSNATIONAL NETWORK THAT NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT
    https://thesoufancenter.org/intelbrief-the-transnational-network-that-nobody-is-talking-about/

    There are possible links between the recent New Zealand mosque shooter and a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist white supremacist paramilitary organization called the Azov Battalion. Recruits from the U.S., Norway, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Sweden, and Australia, among others, have reportedly traveled to train with the Azov Battalion.

    The Azov Battalion is emerging as a critical node in the transnational right-wing violent extremist (RWE) network. This group maintains its own ‘Western Outreach Office’ to help recruit and attract foreign fighters that travel to train and connect with people from like-minded violent organizations from across the globe.

He is also an Australian citizen, a member of the same Nazi organization. It is quite possible that he is a member of the Ukrainian Nazi units that fought in the Donbass”, – said Alexei Selivanov.

    Australian-born Brenton Tarrant, 28, allegedly livestreamed his sickening attack on two Christchurch mosques on Friday, leaving 50 dead. Ankara, Turkey’s cosmopolitan capital, said on Friday it was currently investigating Tarrant’s multiple visits to Turkey. A probe is ongoing to establish Brenton Tarrant’s movements in Turkey during his stay between March 17-20 and September 13 to October 25 in 2016, a senior Turkish official tells TRT World. They said they were looking into who he might have met while he was there during an ‘extended period of time in the country.’ Turkish authorities believe the mosque attacker, who also called for the assassination of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, came to Turkey “to carry out a terror attack and/ or an assassination.” Officials say Tarrant visited Turkey between March 17-20 in 2016, ahead of the July 15 defeated coup, and entered Turkey again on September 13, 2016.

    He left Turkey on October 25, 2016. The Bulgarian government has also said it was looking into Tarrant, who apparently visited the country late last year, as well as Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. “The manifesto that the terrorist released clearly shows that this was no individual act,” added Erdoğan, stressing the importance of exposing the groups behind the attacks, and offering Turkeys help.

    White supremacist – any white who wants to continue to live, have his own territory, and not be an oppressed and hated minority terrorized by his colonizers. This is now the official definition.

    What this individual is advocating is genocide through racist colonialism. It’s when you see the left allying itself with Islam, promoting an Islamic takeover of the West, promoting eventual sharia law that you realize that the modern left is just a white-hating racist movement, a genocidal movement that really doesn’t care what comes after colonialism, it just wants to see whites exterminated and the West destroyed. That’s its only real agenda. You can’t vote or dialog with war criminals who have your extirpation as their only real demand.

    I agree we should stay out of the Middle East, but someone who advocates genocide doesn’t have a moral right to complain about what happens there.

    New Zealand Mosque Chairman Accuses Mossad, ‘Zionist Business’ of Orchestrating Christchurch Shootings

    https://www.algemeiner.com/2019/03/26/new-zealand-mosque-chairman-accuses-mossad-zionist-business-of-orchestrating-christchurch-shootings/

    The chairman of a New Zealand mosque was caught on video telling a rally in the city of Auckland that the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad and “Zionist business” were behind the recent shooting attack on two mosques in Christchurch.

    Fifty people were killed and dozens more wounded in the attacks on March 15. Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant, a white supremacist, was arrested and charged with the crime.

    According to New Zealand news outlet Newshub, the Saturday rally was intended to memorialize the victims of the attacks, but at one point Ahmed Bhamji, chairman of the Mt Roskill Masjid E Umar mosque, stated, “I really want to say one thing today. Do you think this guy was alone? … I want to ask you, where did he get the funding from?”

    “I stand here and I say I have a very very strong suspicion that there’s some group behind him and I am not afraid to say I feel Mossad is behind this,” he added.

    A bystander then responds, “It’s the truth. Israel is behind this. That’s right!”

  24. You can’t expect any organisation, left or right, to exist in a vacuum – government agencies are bound to infiltrate them. Or even create them to serve their own ends. But does that delegitimise every single member of such groups? So the answer is to do nothing and just consume what the government serves you, and hopefully some day some voters will elect a government that will serve its people? Or is doing anything to create subversion and bring the system down by any and all available means to be preferred? And how principled can someone who has no means to their name be in terms of accepting funding and weapons from whoever is willing to deliver them? Revolutions don’t come for free. After all who funded Lenin and Trotsky? And it always ends in bloodbaths, doing whatever and doing nothing. Of course the best would be to have nothing to do with any of this and stay out of it all, but when you’re pushed up against the wall with no way out and no alternative but to fight, do you really care about any of this that goes on behind the scenes? So many questions, not enough answers. And time is running out on everyone.

  25. If you had seen the shooters video, you would know that you can hear police sirens passing in the opposite direction as the shooter is driving away from the attack scene. Approximately seven or eight minutes after the beginning of the attack.

    What’s with the Left’s infatuation with Islam? I might take their concern for religious violence seriously if they raised any concern over the 20 killed and 111 wounded Christians in the Philippines at the end of January. But then I’m forgetting this is framed as racist violence. Islam is a poisonous ideology, so one cannot be ‘islamophobic’. Is anyone called ‘communistphobic’? Again it’s the Lefts infatuation with Islam, defining any criticism in racist terms. It’s awful that people died in New Zealand at the hands of a violent idiot, but thank god I live in the United States and we still maybe are free to criticize an intolerant, violent oppressive ideology invented by an illiterate goat herder to justify rape, plunder and conquest.
