An Odd Terrorism

BarcelonaTerroristAttack
A van hit pedestrians in Barcelona ‘terror attack’ on July 18 causing fourteen dead and dozens of injured among the pedestrians in the area.

 
Maxim Bushmin writes in Novorossia Today:

The terrorist attack in Barcelona leads us to think that behind all of these attacks that we have observed for some years in Europe, there is a hidden “white” connection.
Judge for yourselves by dismissing everything told by the media…
Paris, Nice, Berlin, London, Barcelona… These are all iconic cities. The centers of European life. There are always a lot of people around. There are many places in those cities which attract high numbers of people. In such places the system of counter-terrorism is relatively weak.
Despite all these factors, the scope of the terrorist attacks in question is quite limited. The number of victims is relatively low, but the media impact is very large.
If one studies this phenomenon, we come to the conclusion that the organizers of these attacks did not intend to kill the maximum number of “infidels”. Quite the contrary, they have chosen processes that neither technically nor physically could cause mass death. Remember how things went in London? The vehicle ploughed through passers-by on a bridge. Then, the terrorist, armed with a knife, rushed to enter the parliament. His chances of succeeding equaled zero. The number of victims was minimal. Would anyone who really wants to fight for the caliphate in Europe act that way? No. Even the last of the idiots would have found a way to dispatch to the other world a much more massive number of idle Europeans and tourists. Believe my words, it is not the processes that are lacking. Even the ingredients are freely available for sale. But no matter, the topic is another…
By comparing each terrorist attack to the others, I have come to the conclusion that the organizers of all these terrorist attacks are, first, the same people. And secondly, they do not want mass killings. Making several dozens victims is alright, but not hundreds, or thousands. This means that we are not facing a war of some people against others. And that those who hold its helm are on the inside. Therefore, the organizers of all this are European whites who pursue only their own goals.
The motivations and objectives may vary. To start with, from increasing the police or the army budgets, to influencing the policies of multiculturalism in order to stop it completely before it leads Europe to a fatal ending. In all cases, it is increasingly difficult to believe the Islamic connection in the organization of these terrorist attacks.

The War on Terror is FAKE. Everyone in the intelligence community knows it. 90% of these ‘attacks’ in western countries are false flags, designed to make us surrender our rights + freedoms and impose deeper control by the psychopathic global corporate controlers. Never against big banks, military bases etc – always soft civilian targets – always the cameras ‘just happen’ to be turned off at the time, always a ‘terrorist’ ‘just happens’ to drop their passport or ID card at the scene – there is a pattern, they have even been successfully predicted in advance! The culprits are now known.… Read more »

It somehow did not register reading this article initially – it is important to point out that Barcelona like the others before it was staged. Whether anyone actually died or was injured cannot be stated for sure but judging by various bits of evidence these events are false-flag hoaxes rather than false flags where people really are killed and injured. Video entitled by the re-poster, Barcelona Terror en Farcelona, (farce in Spanish is hoax) showing a doll being set up and other things – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNyonyyAeNI Also, as previously mentioned we have video of the guy on the pavement in two… Read more »

This new ambient terror is also consistent with the objective of diffusing the anxiety. That makes it more pervasive and better suited to justify ubiquitous state intrusions like surveillance or secret-police infiltration. In the good old days we were only scared to fly. Then you had to be scared to sun in your wheelchair on a cruise. Then you had to be scared of going somewhere with lots of people. Now you have to be extra scared of cars and cutlery. Soon you will have to be scared of terrorists who run down the street and punch you in the… Read more »

Here are some random observations: Regarding the weaponsing of hired cars/vans/trucks, this strikes me as absurdly crude and inefficient as a terror tactic. In Sweden last year there were 35 recorded grenade attacks. Why are grenades or other small anti-personal munitions never deployed by these so-called soldiers of the Islamic State? How did Al Qeida manage to use these mysterious bombs in Madrid, London etc over a decade ago yet these days terrorists are reduced to And another point: ISIS in North Africa and the Middle East are notorious for producing high-quality propaganda videos with multiple camera, high definition footage… Read more »

Nailed it.
Oh yes, the blurry video. How can you possibly produce video of such quality in this day and age without it being deliberate. And why would it be deliberate?
This is the ONLY graphic information of the bomb scene at Manchester on the internet (which is shown at different levels of zoom and crop in the various publications).
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/foyer-full-of-young-girls-wearing-kitten-ears-was-the-softest-target-3kc0l25cj Do you think it looks remotely like the scene of a bombing where 22 died and 119 were injured?
Oh, except for this little piece of leaked footage (watch for about 1 minute after bookmarked point.)

Except for Grenfell Tower. I’m afraid that was very much staged too. I simply do not understand why people have so much trouble getting that this event was staged as well as all the others. There are so many videos I could have linked to but the YouTubers’ channels have been shut down. There’s still some stuff up but it makes me sad that so many channels have been shut down. Why would they remove so many channels if there wasn’t truth in their videos?

Well that’s easy – while you be-live that many have been killed, injured or are suffering grief, loss and shock as a result of a calamity of neglect – with undercurrent rage to that neglect – would you warm to infotainment ‘truth’ videos that use the event to promote their beliefs? Regardless of the truth of the situation – one has to work with the truth of what is believed or get shut down. The kind of attitude that feels empowered to override everyone else because it is ‘right’ is the nature of the disease – metaphorically stated. Perhaps I… Read more »

Deceits, errors and false thinking can be brought to light to a more open account – but the framing of this will still be a matter of belief, opinion and conjecture. Those who are blind to their beliefs are those who claim the ‘FACT’ as a means to establish their own over another. In the name of the ‘Fact’ comes tyrannous cruelty. Yet facts that are supported and congruent that call a narrative to question are witnesses to true account – unless woven into a counter narrative – in which they mask as ‘moral truth – as a force for… Read more »

As I say, I’m a prosaic person, Binra. When obvious staging is in plain sight I want to call it. Why not? There’s always some story out there so why not call the one you believe … and if it’s wrong then others can say so. I think it’s really quite problematic when everyone talks about things so guardedly and sits on the fence. There’s plenty of others to do that so I’d really rather just call it as I see it. I mean we are talking about events that are pretty significant here, aren’t we? I have to admit… Read more »

That you ‘believe’ your ‘facts’ should or must force acceptance or adoption and compliance is no kind of relationship. That you expect others to simply ‘wake up’ to see as you see takes no account of their current and inherited belief-system, self-definition and world view. So my… Read more »

Has anyone twigged that this terrorist attack in Barcelona occurs about six weeks before Catalonia has its independence referendum on 1 October 2017, and that the Catalan government’s decree to officially call the referendum takes place in late August? Just as one of the London terrorist attacks earlier this year took place about a week or so before the general election?
The timing of these attacks should be enough for us to consider whether Maxim Bushmin is on to something.

I agree. The Westminster “terror attack” occurred one week before the Brexit Article 50 letter was delivered in Brussels. The Manchester and London Bridge attacks occurred 17 days (Manchester) and 5 days (London Bridge) before the General Election, which May claims she called to strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations. Now that those negotiations are under way the attacks have ceased and the focus has likely shifted to trying to scupper or stall Brexit at the negotiating table. For my money the EU referendum and its result have created war by other means, right from the start and the murder… Read more »

And perhaps the Gematria (words coded into numbers) is significant? I have to say as soon as people start talking Gematria my mind starts to spin and I have a hard time not thinking that they can make the numbers work whichever way the want (although I think the evidence for significant numbers such as 22 and 33 is pretty clear). But it’s interesting to consider.

Well I do wonder at the seemingly oblivious governments that control these cities, as one after the other get hit in like fashion. When people congregate on a street with shops and stalls selling goods, you would think that the minimum safety measures would include barricades to motor traffic at each end of the street.

The author is clearly using basic logical fallacies to arrive at his conclusion. He assumes that the goal of these terrorists should be to kill as many people as possible, but then uses several examples of low-casualty terror attacks to illustrate his point that these attacks are being planned by special services to keep fear instilled in the hearts and minds of the general populace. First, the author cherry picks his data. There have been numerous terror attacks that have been effective at killing large numbers of people. The Nice terror attacks are but one example, in which 86 innocent… Read more »

That would be a fallacy. If my last sentence was indeed “disconnected”, then it has no relation or impact on the validity on the content before it and therefore, you can not say that content is “valueless” based upon a “disconnected” sentence after it. You thus contradict your own logic.

IK. On the contrary, Roger had the right of it. Your comment in response relied only on the fact that there was a paragraph space between what you had written and the last entry. In a very real sense the last comment reveals very much about your perception and on what your thinking is based from, so although there was a physical disconnect, it revealed a “relation” between the paragraphs.

When truths are used to mask a falsehood – the purpose is different and taken out of their original context – truths are used to lie. That truths are used to lie is the nature of false flag deceit. Satan quoted Scripture – but the intent behind it was to use the form to mask as the reality so as to deny or block reality from interfering with a ‘love of form’ at expense of living context.

Hello binra, I think it is ironic you used Gladio to as an example. Operation Gladio was a secret stay-behind program to aid countries in case of a Soviet invasion. Some state that Gladio involved “false flags” by NATO to implicate left-wing forces in Europe of terrorism. That is confirmed Soviet disinformation and it’s incredible how effective it still is today. These claims are based on documents forged by the Soviets, as part of a disinformation campaign.

Mr. Pilon, instead of calling me offensive words, you ought to do better research. You fallaciously assume that just because a former deputy director of the CIA said he thought the documents were true, that this means the documents are real. A classic “appeal to authority” fallacy. First, Ray Cline ended involvement with the CIA and the U.S. government in 1973. The forged document, FM 30-31B, was released in 1976. Not only that, but he never even confirmed that the document is real. Here is the exact quote from your linked documentary: “Well, I suspect it is an authentic document.… Read more »

Russia had a political revolution, but one that failed to translate into a necessary social revolution that would have consolidated the Bolshevik’s initial rise to power. The ranks of working class, which were collectively the social basis of the Communist Party’s legitimacy, were decimated in the civil war and military invasions of Russia that ensued upon the termination of WWI. Once the soviets had been liquidated by circumstances of their social content, so to speak, everything that ensued was a counter revolutionary process the ultimately resulted in 1991 and the eventual entrenchment of capital in both social and political terms… Read more »

Given the majority of western European political, financial and intelligence elites; as they appear to be referred as, could be reasonably assumed with the label ‘white’, leads one to no other conclusion than that offered by the author. The usage of colour labelling distracts from the ‘coincidental’ similarities that run thematically. We should focus upon who benefits, concurrent with the author it certainly isn’t those who the media would have us believe.

Who benefits is one layer – where there is a money trail, a leverage to go to war of make new law or divert from something more important to keep dark. At a general level I feel that fear and conflict operate as means for maintaining darkness, ignorance or unconsciousness of true or whole – as a result of baited or triggered reaction and identification from framing narratives in shock or threat terms – as well as feeding and using an ongoing ‘identity’ in defence or offensive terms. Darkness can be what you fail to notice or recognize because you… Read more »

People-like sheep–are easier to control if you keep them saturated with fear 24/7, fear that comes out of nowhere and is inexplicable, at least to the people, the sheep can see the wolf. People cringing in fear are easy to manipulate, why they can even be made to believe that Nazis have taken over the USG and we must riot, even tear down the USA in order to save it. After all, the precious Bill of Rights is the product of slave-owners, so lets tear that up and start again….with something the Antifa people have up their sleeves and it… Read more »

Dear Greg. You certainly nailed it with this comment: “People cringing in fear are easy to manipulate”, I’m just not too sure you realized how astute the comment was. When people live in an orchestrated fear of something (and most of the current examples are directing us, as they were intended to do, towards fear of an emerging militant Muslim) then said acts of “terrorism” whether terrorists or joy riding exuberant and mindless useful idiots, does indeed breed exactly the kind of climate for manipulation by fear. Those fears may not be premised on any actual or factual truth –… Read more »

I must say Mr. Bushmin is trying to cover-up some Big Fish by blaming the White racist groups like Alt-Right which all support Israel. Barcelona’s chief rabbi just exposed the entity which benefits from such terrorist even. He has advised Spanish Jews to immigrate to Israel. A White van was driven into a crowd of pedestrians close to one of Barcelona’s Jewish deli – killing 13 people and injuring another 80. Even before the local police call it a terrorist act – Richard Verber, senior vice-president of the Board of Jewish Deputies, said: “We utterly condemn this brutal attack by… Read more »

Flaxgirl, you have a strange idea of ABSOLUTE, 100% INCONTROVERTIBLE PROOF. Forensic scientists would call your evidence interesting, suggestive; but ‘absolute’? The scientific method doesn’t even claim such religious categories. That said, I suspect strongly that all these attacks, right back to 11/9/01 are indeed deliberately-organised false-flags, ultimately to be laid at the door of Western gics (gangsters-in-charge) and their deliberately set-on patsies/proxies/manipulated-suckers. The truth about 11/9 has taken a lot of careful work to establish, but there’s no longer much doubt (amongst those who are actually honestly familiar with the evidence; big if!) that it was indeed an inside… Read more »

OK, I was extreme in my statement but it’s fairly conclusive – and all you have to do is add it to all the other evidence. The thing to do is to not take the media story as the default but to start with the statement: there is a claim that blah happened. What is the evidence for and what against? When you put it like that there you will find there is never any convincing evidence that the event actually happened as stated. That 9/11 was a false-flag is not really so complicated although all the work done is… Read more »

Would anyone who really wants to fight for the caliphate in Europe wear a fake suicide belt? I think not, ergo – synthetic terror campaign. At least we got a twist on the de rigeur dropped ID this time … otherwise it is becoming a predictable and pitiful indictment of the degeneration and breakdown of European society. The worrying trend for me is that there would seem to be, at the very least, a common agenda: at most, a supranational intra-intel-community cooperation – building for the European CIA???

What is it with the “white” perpetrator thing, as if the color of the skin of the likely criminals behind these events was in some sense revelatory or revealing? An incongruous (if minor) element in otherwise cogent piece of analysis.

OK, folks, now this is ABSOLUTE, 100% INCONTROVERTIBLE PROOF that the event was staged. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Car7Nje57Oc
You will see in this video, footage of a guy sitting on the pavement drinking from a bottle with his feet in his shoes looking perfectly fine. But then in other footage guess what? He’s not so fine. He’s lying down, with one foot out and resting on its shoe at an angle suggesting a problem and his sock is bloody.
(Shoes off are massive in these events – check out this photo at Charlottesville –comment image)
These two bits of footage are IMPOSSIBLE for a real event.

Surely, it depends in which order the films were taken, rather than in which order they were shown on u-tube as ‘incontrovertible proof’ .

flaxgirl
Reader

No it doesn’t. Both pieces have to be AFTER the attack in which case the bloody foot has to come after the other one. The chances of someone having video taken of them sitting on the pavement with someone standing by them as if attending BEFORE the attack are infinitesimal.
And what do you know? The video has already been shut down.

flaxgirl
Reader

I mean, sure there are other possible explanations – the guy just happened to be sitting on the pavement with someone standing beside him looking as though they’re attending to him when the van comes along and injures him (or something else happens to injure him) and that video was taken before and after the injury. But seriously what are the odds? If you were offered a $1,000 to choose the correct answer or a lose a $1,000 for the wrong answer, would you: decline to answer, choose “staged”, choose “real”?

One might suggest that the organizers of the attacks are not European Whites but Asiatic Whites but that would surely be condemned as baseless racism.

Of course, it is, in fact, a false-flag hoax operation run at the behest of the Zionist-led power elite, an operation that ironically includes the Muslim patsies (assuming they are really Muslim) and, we might say in a very distant but still significant way, other Muslims such as Nafeez Ahmed, who lament Islamophobia but will not point the finger at the real perpetrators. I have emailed Nafeez Ahmed twice about his co-authored article about Manchester being blowback https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/the-manchester-bombing-as-blowback-the-latest-evidence-83ec2127801d. In my first email I asked for a response to my 10-point Occam’s Razor exercise on Manchester that shows quite clearly that… Read more »

Good article as was the one written by Michel Chossudovsky on Global Research. http://globalresearch.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=2cc48fb30f331d97157a65aa2&id=979635f78a&e=4861c1ed93 My own theory will have hit a few nerves, but I voiced it anyway. I imagine if we ever learn the real truth, what will emerge is the clever tactic of certain men duping a youngster into stealing his brother’s ID in order to impress them. The man in the passenger seat may well have objected to the way the cars were used and was knifed by the real murderous thugs in this escapade. What this charade and very dodgy account by the police and the… Read more »

Harvard historian professor Niall Ferguson in his highly praised 2006 book, The War of the World, claimed that some of the greatest mass murderers of modern times were Jewish. Ferguson’s research, however, centered on the Bolshevik revolution and the Lenin and Stalin era during which Jewish elites in the Russian government and Bolshevik terrorist organs like Cheka, GPU, NKVD and KGB, sent over 100 million Christian and Muslim communities to death camps or rooted out of their native homelands. Some other books on this subject include ‘Behind Communism’ by Frank Britton, ‘Stalin’s willing Executioners’ by Yuri Slezkine, ‘The Rulers of… Read more »

It seems to me this is indeed a war of the old fashioned sort. We bomb them and they bomb us. We are simply fortunate the enemy lacks resources to kill anything like the numbers we manage to inflict.

Hi Paul
When can you say that such ‘war’ occurred in documented history – exactly?

Very astute observation which should be obvious if we were not being misdirected.

(This is to the article but just picking up on your well worn phrase) It may be becoming obvious to some but when the terms ‘War on are used – the is propagated and protected from resolution. Can anyone come up with an example that refutes this? So the more apt description is war of terror – not in the terms of them and us – for ‘they’ receive arms and training and backup from us and or our allies via many shadowy routes. More importantly they receive massive media coverage. What does fear ‘work’ to do? It activates the… Read more »
