Disturbing details

The massacre at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris is the subject of posts on several blogs. Several blogs have blurred-out photos of the massacre aftermath, showing bodies sprawled in pools of blood. I have seen the original, non-blurred photos.

Thinking Housewife expresses skepticism: was this a 'staged' scene? She questions certain details:

Why is no one attending to these victims? Where are the emergency responders? It’s very unusual even when only police have arrived for no one to help those who have been shot. Usually even victims who are believed to be dead are rushed to hospitals just in case they may be revived. That is standard practice. And yet these victims are left in piles. Is this the moment before any police and medics arrived? Does that mean no one stayed behind to help these poor people, some of whom may have survived if they were treated?"

Reading a much more extensive and detailed report, with more photos, from the UK Daily Mail yields much more information. Reading it,seeing more pictures of the scene,  I am satisfied that this was not a hoax or a staged scenario. The concertgoers were apparently packed tightly as with many such concerts, and in close quarters, being held at gunpoint by the attackers, they could not easily start taking photos with their cell phones. The article contains the witness reports of concertgoers who survived.

The Daily Mail headline says the attackers "even butchered fans in wheelchairs", who were in a special area to view the concert. I can't say I am shocked because I remember one of the early terror acts in the modern era, the hijacking of the ship, the Achille Lauro. A wheelchair-bound passenger was thrown overboard to his death, so this is standard behavior for these cold-blooded 'people.' Perhaps the younger generations haven't heard of these events from the 1970s-1980s.

But the more disturbing reports come from the French site Fdesouche saying that the terrorists, armed with knives, slit the abdomens of those who were wounded and helpless, and that the torture carried on for some time.

After having heard and read of so many examples of such inhumanity from these people, I find this all credible. And it's disturbing, because I honestly cannot begin to fathom what would bring a human being to be able to do such things. I can't conceive of hating anyone, especially a total stranger, so much that I would cold-bloodedly do such horrific things. I can't begin to understand the white-hot hatred that leads to such icy cruelty. I can't imagine what could motivate anyone to be willing to blow themselves up just to be able to simultaneously kill or maim ''infidels.'' Anybody who could or would do such things should not be breathing free air or walking amongst normal humanity.

And yet the leftists accuse people like me, in other words anybody to the right of Stalin, of being ''hateful haters who hate". They had better start noticing who the world champion haters are: the people who have been carrying out attacks on random strangers for the last 40 or so years, in this current wave of terror. And it isn't the ''right wing'', and it certainly is not White Christians or even White non-Christians. If the dangerously deluded left would just get out of the way and let realistic adults run things, we would never be under attack in our own countries -- or what, at least, used to be our own countries.
