It takes a nation to protect the nation

I keep hearing this phrase.  Israel is inflicting collective punishment on the people of Gaza.  If that is so, then when missiles are launched from Gaza, the people of Gaza are inflicting collective punishment on the people of Israel.  Yet for most of the last few years, the media can't even be bothered to report when the Gazans attempt to inflict collective punishment on the people of Israel (1.5 million of whom are Arabs).

Now with the attacks on jews in Brussels, Paris and Turkey, things are getting worse for jews in europe. The collective punishment is being meted out here as well as against Israel.

This concept of collective punishment is islamic.

France's politicians and community leaders have criticised the "intolerable" violence against Paris' Jewish community, after a pro-Palestinian rally led to the vandalizing and looting of Jewish businesses and the burning of cars.

It is the third time in a week where pro-Palestinians have clashed with the city's Jewish residents. On Sunday, locals reported chats of "Gas the Jews" and "Kill the Jews", as rioters attacked businesses in the Sarcelles district, known as "little Jerusalem".

Manuel Valls, France's prime minister said: “What happened in Sarcelles is intolerable. An attack on a synagogue and on a kosher shop is simply antisemitism. Nothing in France can justify this violence.”


“They were shouting: ‘Death to Jews,’ and ‘Slit Jews’ throats’,” David, a Jewish sound engineer told The Times. “It took us back to 1938.”

The "savages" identified in these stories from France, Belgium and Turkey are NEVER identified as being muslims and the Leftist allies of muslims.  And the concept of collective (blame and) punishment is also in keeping with Leftism.  The Left blame all members of a class, and another class are entirely blame-free.  But then since socialism seems to be a form of atheistic islam, that is not surprising.

‘Collective punishment’: Alleged ISIS relatives forcibly displaced & kept in Iraqi camps, says HRW

Iraqi forces have forcibly moved more than 235 families to camps over several weeks for alleged family ties with Islamic State, Human Rights Watch (HRW) reports. The group condemns what it terms “collective punishment.”

In early January, Iraqi security forces carried out a major sweep operation, displacing at least 235 families, the HRW report said on Sunday. Some 220 families from villages west of the city of Kirkuk arrived at the Daquq camp alone in less than three weeks. 

Groups affiliated with Iraqi state-sponsored umbrella organization, the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), were reportedly involved in the operation. The forces destroyed civilians’ homes and “forced some parents to leave children behind, stole some of the families’ livestock,” HRW alleges, citing witnesses.

“Some were beaten and they were brought to a camp against their will,” Belkis Wille, HRW’s senior Iraq researcher or Iraq and Qatar told RT. The researcher personally visited the camp and interviewed families last week. The organization’s report also said that some people came to the camps with “purple bruises” on their backs and others, including women, had bruises in their arms and legs.

The civilians were rounded up “with no warning” and were sent to the site after security screening because they allegedly had relatives affiliated with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS). However, the forces and management of the camps admit that the displaced people are innocent and “haven’t done anything wrong in the eyes of the Iraqi legal system,” according to the researcher.

“The only reason they are being treated like this is because they have had a relative who joined ISIS. That is collective punishment – punishing an entire family for what a son or a husband might have chosen to do,” Wille said.

The displaced Iraqis are merely trapped in those prison camps. Apart from limited free movement in and out of the site, the civilians’ documents have been withheld preventing them from fleeing.

HRW accuses the Iraqi authorities of coming down hard on the people and ramping up tensions in the Iraqi community, instead of long-awaited reconciliation.

“It is happening with a consent of the government even it is not a strict government policy and therefore it begs the question [sic] of how the Iraqi government can talk about any process of reconciliation as its own forces are participating in this kind of a campaign,” Wille said. She added that instead of “bringing the families back into the fold” the government allows the armed forces to “play a crucial role in further marginalizing them.”

The organization has also called on the Iraqi government to immediately investigate “alleged war crimes” and other wrongdoings by the military, including looting and destruction of civilian property.

In December, Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi officially announced the end of the war against IS, declaring victory over the terrorists and the liberation of the country. However, in January alone, a total of 115 Iraqi civilians were killed and another 250 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq, according to official estimates from the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
