It takes a nation to protect the nation

"Rapid radicalization of young Muslims'

by Bart Olmer

The government can barely grasp the alarmingly growing number of radicalized young Muslims. This is according to Prof. Edwin Bakker, terrorism and counterterrorism professor at Leiden University.

Old methods of keeping terrorism suspects under surveillance, as mention in the so-called Counter-terrorism Infobox and infiltration by secret agents, are useless against the tidal wave of home-grown jihadis.

"My view is that the radicalization is quickening. We only know a small section of activists and radicals of Sharia4Holland and Behind Bars. The growth is mainly in 'new' individuals and groups. The situation is very changeable. Torque as speed and you have as a government for a lot less insight into the situation ", explains Professor Bakker terror situation.

Is based on the Google translation of the below ("torque as speed" must idiomatic, as it makes little sense).

'Razendsnelle radicalisatie moslimjongeren'

door Bart Olmer


De overheid kan amper zicht op houden op het schrikbarend groeiende aantal radicaliserende moslimjongeren. Dit stelt prof. dr. Edwin Bakker, hoogleraar terrorisme en contraterrorisme aan de Universiteit Leiden.

Oude methoden om terrorismeverdachten in beeld te houden, zoals vermelding in de zogeheten Contra-terrorisme Infobox en infiltratie door geheim agenten, bieden geen soelaas meer tegen de vloedgolf aan polderjihadi’s.

„Mijn beeld is dat het huidige radicaliseringproces heel snel verloopt. Daarbij gaat het slechts voor een deel om bekenden uit die CT Infobox, zoals activisten en radicalen van Sharia4Holland en Behind Bars. De groei zit vooral in ’nieuwe’ individuen en groepen. De situatie is erg veranderlijk. Koppel daar snelheid aan en je hebt als overheid voor een stuk minder zicht op de situatie”, schetst terreurprofessor Bakker de situatie.

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)"
