In a blog earlier this year I commented on why groups like ISIS were able to attract recruits so readily. I'm not going to re-hash that blog, the reasons haven't changed. Instead, this blog is why ISIS and terror groups like it are wasting their time and are destined to fail.
ISIS clearly doesn't understand Britain's history or our culture, so they fail to recognise that they can't win. They seem to think that all they have to do is encourage one more poor deluded fool to kill themselves while killing others and they will tip us over the edge and get whatever it is that they want.
Are they so stupid that they think that we would cave in so easily?
Since 1066 this country has never been invaded. I think that makes Britain almost unique in the world. Our shores have protected us no matter how strong our enemies were. But it wasn't just the sea that surrounds us that protects us. It is the people who live in this country. When the going gets tough, the British people get tougher.
In June 940 The whole German army was camped just 21 miles away across the other side of the English Channel. Their air force outnumbered ours by about 3 to 1 and our army was recovering from probably the worst defeat it had ever suffered and, thanks to that defeat, was short of all it needed to defend our shores.
Yet, despite all that, the German army remained camped across the other side of the English Channel for another 4 years, until Britain and its Allies crossed that stretch of water and defeated them. Even if the Americans hadn't joined us in that war we would never have been defeated. The Germans weren't defeated because of the sea, or even because they were weak. They were defeated because the British never give in.
So what do you bunch of f***wits think you are going to achieve with a few deluded followers and a handful of explosives?
The British people aren't the sort of people who cave in because things get a little bit scary. If we did that then we would have been defeated in 1940, or in 1914, or in 1815 or in any of the other wars we have fought to keep our country free. It is why we will defeat ISIS. It may not be today, it may not be tomorrow but, in the end, we will beat you.
When I talk about the British people, I'm not just talking about the ones with white(ish) faces. I'm talking about the whole melting pot of British people of all races, colours and creeds. You seek to divide us, but you are bringing us together, to stand united against you. This you also fail to understand, so this is another reason why you will fail.
The IRA tried several times to defeat us. For 30 years they planted bomb after bomb, killing thousands, yet in the end they had to give up their weapons and come to the negotiating table. Does ISIS seriously think that they can do better than the IRA? Do these deluded idiots who blow themselves up seriously think that their deaths are going to cause us to collapse and beg them not to do it any more? It is this sort of thinking that shows us how stupid you people are.
When one of you deluded fools is persuaded to kill yourself by people sat in safety several thousand miles away, all you do is send yourself on a one way journey to oblivion. That's it; no virgins in Paradise, no special place next to the Prophet, no fame, no glory. Just death.
And the rest of us just go out the next day and get on with our lives, shedding not a tear for you and remembering only the innocent lives that you take. Even the other members of your own religion disown you, you morons.
You won't make us hate you, because we don't hate you, we pity you. You won't make us fear you, because you are few and we are many; you are weak and hide behind your deluded minions, while we stand openly against you. You won't make us cower in our homes, because if the might of the Nazi war machine and the IRA couldn't do that then you pathetic cowards stand no chance.
When you are dead and peace returns to our islands, as it surely will, we will carry in our hearts the eternal memories of the innocents you have killed, while you will be consigned to a footnote in history; a Wikipedia page that no one ever reads.
So do yourselves a favour. Pack your bags and go and join Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi in whatever hole he is cowering, too frightened even to show himself in public, and when you have come to your senses, come and ask for our forgiveness for your stupidity. And because we are British, we might even grant forgiveness.
