No Surprise: Interpol Chief Says Europe Not Fighting Terror

By Debbie Schlussel
Interpol Secretary-General Ron Noble said Europe is not fighting terrorism on the most basic levels:

“I am saying there is an international failure to fight terrorism at the most basic level — that no rational citizen of any of our countries would accept if they were made aware of how significant the failure is and how easy it would be to correct.”
Noble said Interpol had a database of more than 13 million stolen and lost passports. But apart from Switzerland, which uncovered 100 people carrying stolen documents every month, no country comprehensively checked passports against its list.
He said the public would find it hard to understand why a measure which could prevent a terrorist attack and was “obvious to do, easy to do and a modest cost” was not being done. He said heads of state and senior ministers would be to blame.
“After September 11, if a citizen were to learn that a terrorist attack occurred by someone having entered their country with a stolen passport that was registered with Interpol but their country wasn’t regularly checking it, I say governments would fall,” he said.

Glad he’s talking, but it won’t change anything in Europe. Or here. Wake up, world.

Isnít it amazing how so many people are still so clueless about the immense danger we are all in? To say that my world view changed on 9/11/01 would be an incredible understatement. How is it that some people are still able to pretend that the danger isnít there? The head-in-the-sand problem (or maybe their head is in a darker place) is simply pervasive. From the heads of state to the man on the street.

Europe (especially Spain) became a Big France, if you know what I mean.
Do them harm, they’ll be your slave.
Any hope? No, until they burry millions of their citizens’ bloody blown off limbs.
That’s how idiotic they are, the Europeans, just like many of Americans who didn’t learn the lessons of September 11, 2001.
It is true, liberalism is a mental disorder (thank you Michael Savage).

The Euro-peons may one day find themselves marching into the Infidel Beheading Centers set up by their Muslim immigrant friends.

The Netherlands is trying. They just backed a proposal to ban the dreaded burka hahaha! Time for us to do the same!

All of Europe’s leaders are left-wing socialists. What do you expect? LIBERALS and socialists have ALWAYS turned a blind-eye to defending their nations – including here in the U.S.

Europe is dying by its own hand. A sure sign is the fact that the Dutch are emigrating in droves and Slavs and Caucasians are overrunning Ireland fer Chrissake.
I propose a new policy for all Western Industrialized nations that SHOULD be led by the U.S. – Deny entry to ALL Muslims. Period. They refuse to assimilate, abuse their women and children, foster and promulgate an 8th century mentality, and a significant (yes, significant) percentage want to kill and or subjugate us.
I suspect that once upon a time that members of the Khmer Rouge wouldn’t have been granted entry to America either. The same holds true that not ALL Cambodians wanted us dead.
How about members of the I.R.A. (may Bobby Sands rest in peace)? Were THEY allowed free and unobstructed travel to America?
There are many more examples of this common sense approach to who is allowed into America.
