Airport security expert: changes needed to ensure safetyWell then, we obviously need security check-points before the check-in desks!
Colin Freeman has spoken to airport security experts about today's attack:
Airport safety experts say that Tuesday's attacks at Brussels airport should prompt a review of safety procedures around air terminals.
The bombers struck at the check-in desk of the departures terminal, an area that does not require prior security checks to reach.
Freeman's mini-article goes on:
Matthew Finn, managing director of the London-based aviation security firm Augmentiq, said there was little to be gained by moving security checks to the "front door" of the airport, as that would simply "move the problem outside rather than solve it"."Lots of people." Well, yes. Ultimately, everyone might have to devote all his attention to security. That's the natural limit of what the late, lamented Lawrence Auster warned us about in 2006:
"As an industry we don't look at airport security holistically," he told The Daily Telegraph. "We look at baggage security, staff security and so on, but not airport security as a whole. It is difficult because it requires lots of people to work together, private and otherwise, some of whom are reluctant to share information with each other."
We will have terrorist attacks and threats of terrorist attacks and inconvenient and humiliating security measures and the disruption of ordinary activities FOREVER, as long as Muslims are in the West in any significant numbers. The Muslim terrorists are part and parcel of the Muslim community. According to a survey reported in the Scotsman, 24 percent of Muslims in Britain (I never describe them as “British Muslims”) believe the July 2005 London bombings were justified. Imagine that. Not only do these Muslims in Britain support terrorism against Britain, they’re not afraid to say so openly to a pollster! The unchangeable fact is that wherever there is a sizable Muslim community there will be a very large number of terror supporters and therefore—inevitably—actual terrorists as well.I've quoted those three memorable paragraphs at VDARE.com several times before. They're words you can use: Print them out and have them handy (wallet? purse?). When the subject of Muslims in Western societies arises, read them aloud and then ask your interlocutor(s), "Is there anything in that statement that you can dispute?"
This is our future, FOREVER, unless we stop Muslim immigration and initiate a steady out-migration of Muslims from the West until their remaining numbers are a small fraction of what they are now and there are no true believers among the ones that remain. Travelers from Muslim countries must be tightly restricted as well. Muslims must be essentially locked up inside the Muslim lands, with only carefully screened individuals allowed into the non-Muslim world.
The enemy are among us, in America, in Britain, in the West, and will remain so until we remove them from the West and indeed from the entire non-Muslim world. As extreme as this sounds, it is a no-brainer. There is no other solution. All other responses to this problem add up to meaningless hand-wringing. The hand-wringing will go on FOREVER, along with the terrorist attacks and the threat of terrorist attacks, until we take the ONLY STEPS that can actually and permanently end the threat.
