As the civilized world looks helplessly on as yet another Muslim atrocity claims the lives of innocent people while going about their daily lives, the political class will go into their standard, well practiced charade of issuing platitudes of faux outrage then doing nothing to protect the people they have sworn to keep safe.
Political leaders will hurriedly arrange emergency sessions of their various security committees but the outcomes will be depressingly the same; they will dust off the usual soundbites and slogans, make promises to take drastic action they know they will not fulfill then do absolutely nothing to deal with the radical Muslims they invited into our midst.
It was the same charade after the Muslim atrocities in the Ottowa Parliament, the Lindt Cafe in Sydney, Australia, the Boston Marathon, Chattanooga, San Bernadino, the Madrid Train bombing, the 7/7 London Transport bombings, Charlie Hebdo, the Paris massacre etc.etc. ad nauseum.
There will be expressions of sympathy and solidarity with the Belgian people.
There will be condolences for the dead and their families.
There will be expressions of outrage at the barbarity of the killers.
There will be promises to leave no stone unturned to root out the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
There will be promises of firm action to prevent similar attacks in the future.
Then there will follow the biggest and most insulting soundbites of all, the inevitable "it's nothing to do with Islam" along with it's sister soundbite "we are not at war with Islam".
The fact that Islam has declared war on the civilized world will be studiously ignored.
They will not take any practical steps to combat the murderous Islamists they have brought into our midst.
Mass immigration from backward Muslim countries will continue unabated.
Passports and other documents will continue to be issued to all and sundry without proper vetting.
Saudi/Qatari financed mosque building in western countries will also continue unabated.
Madrassas and religious schools in western countries will continue to indoctrinate children from an early age with the requirements of Muslims to conquer or kill infidels as demanded by their prophet Mohammad and as written in their holy book the Koran.
Imams and other preachers of hate will continue to spew their violent filth and recruit on behalf of ISIS openly and unmolested by the authorities.
Sharia law will continue to be accepted and in some instances will be incorporated into the law of the land.
Sharia controlled Muslim ghettos will continue to proliferate unmolested in western cities and will continue to act as breeding grounds and recruitment centres for global jihadis.
The press and social media will continue to suppress and censor the horrific crimes being committed by incoming Muslims, especially violent sexual offences against women and children, including young boys.
Moves by the UN/EU to ban criticism of Islam and immigration in general will continue.
Deluded left-wing self loathers, anarchists, liberals and those that go around the place calling themselves 'progressives' will still be protesting and carrying their banal 'Welcome Refugees' signs.
George Clooney, Emma Thompson and the rest of the wealthy liberal elite will continue to press for the borders to be opened up to more middle eastern immigrants from the safety of their walled mansions and armed guards.
In conclusion, the list of pragmatic steps that the political elite could take to fight back against Muslim jihadis but refuse to do so is endless. Their commitment to impose Islam on western civilization is total, and the dead and injured of Brussels and elsewhere will be treated as acceptable collateral damage.
