It takes a nation to protect the nation
I think we will soon run out of unique number pairs to describe these terrorist atrocities, which are, as we all know NTDWI (Nothing To Do With Islam). We already have a duplicate pair for 25/6. So I'll list the ones we've had so far to make sure we don't get confused. Of course, this is only a small subset of the 28,000 Islamic Terror attacks since 9/11, (which were also nothing to do with Islam).
One characteristic we can use to measure these attacks is, did they kill enough kuffar to cause an acknowledgement of the ideological justification of them, by the Quran and by Islamic Theology? If the response to the attacks is statements like the ones below, then we can say that not enough were killed to cause the dumb kuffar of the West to face up to the existential threat they face.
The interpretation of TooFKD is not purely literal. For example, if God forbid, the Queen is assassinated by a Muslim thug, only one person has died, but the assault that represents on our values and indeed the security of our entire state, is colossal. Then you can see a pattern of decreasing sensitivity, as if Islamists are testing to see at what point the lumbering behemoth of the Western State will wake up and react. So, from the Fatwa against the writer Salman Rushdie (effectively no response) to the killing of the soldier Lee Rigby (effectively no response) we see the same failure. The jihadists surmise that if we fail to respond to the first incursion, we will be similarly cowardly when it comes to the second, even more existential one, and so on.
If those are the responses, then we can say the situation is TooFKD or Too Few Kuffar Died. However, if the response is as below, we can say the situation is TooMKD, or Too Many Kuffar Died.
There are plenty of other measures possible, buy you get the idea. If we start to see measures like that being proposed, then we can say that the situation is TooMKD.
So let's list the events so far. As you will see, the events get more and more shocking, but all it seems to do is provoke the kuffar into making more and more excuses. Please tell me of any big ones I've missed out.

If you can please take the time to read this list, the surprising thing is how many of those massive newsworthy events we have now forgotten. Of course, if the academics and media were doing their job and showing the patterns, we would have been reminded of them, but of course, that's the last thing they want. They want all these atrocities to disappear into a collective black hole of memory.
The big take away from this chart of course, is that everything is TooFKD. I'm not sure how to fix it, but probably those people with the massive brains at the Guardian and in Parliament can figure it out.

There are even too many of the major attacks for me to add. Instead I will put 2 collections here. Note how it really starts way back in the 1970s. I remember those days, and feeling terrified by the thought of being in a hijacked airliner. And now? We just accept it as normal.
It is the job of journalists, academics, clergy, politicians, teachers to keep important cultural memories alive.
I heard an 11yo kid say "ISIS are not Islamic". I asked, "where did you hear this"? "At school".
Now, I distinctly remember the day when I was 14yo and asked my History/Social Studies teacher a question about politics. His reply was "I'm not allowed to give you political opinions". I didn't hear politics discussed by a teacher until I was studying politics at university.
Yet now we have 11yo (and younger?) being indoctrinated at school on major political questions. These kids are being deceived about a threat that walks among them, and which will be worse by the time they are adults.
I now just refer to " journalists, academics, clergy, politicians, teachers" as The Quisling Class, because there is barely an exception among them.
Incidentally, I have seen my usage of "Quisling" spread. I really do believe that if one is seeding the appropriate term among people who are very interested in some topic, it will take on a life of its own.
Definitely, those memes carry. Like the one about calling the "not-left" as "far right", and thereby creating a nucleus about which the real far right will try to form. Is that what the quisling class really intended? Ha ha, they're so stupid, its the law of unintended consequences again.
