John Key thinks New Zealand is less vulnerable to terrorist attack and in many respects he is right.

New Zealand’s distance from the rest of the world – and its involvement in a controversial spying network – means it is less vulnerable to a terrorist attack than most countries, Prime Minister John Key says.

However, Key said there were no guarantees that New Zealand was “completely immune”, with the increasing sophistication of communications between terrorists making it difficult to track their movements.

Key told media in Vietnam that New Zealand’s relative geographical isolation helped to insulate it from terrorist threats such as those in Paris, the NZ Herald reported.

“I think every country in the world is potentially vulnerable, we’re probably less vulnerable than others.

“We have in this instance the advantage of distance, we’re a long way away, [but] i just couldn’t say to you we’re completely immune.”

Key said New Zealand’s place in the Five Eyes club – an intelligence alliance with the US, Canada, the UK and Australia – also helped to protect the country, but he warned that terrorists were becoming more aware about how to protect their communications from being intercepted.

“We have a responsibility to other New Zealanders to do the best we can to monitor any behaviour that we think is unusual or untoward [but] we can’t guarantee we get on top of all of that.

“These people are quite sophisticated in the way they communicate with each other, but we’re certainly a lower risk environment than many other parts of the world.”

Key said there had been no dramatic changes to New Zealand’s watchlist of potential threats to the country, while officials would continue to review the threat level to reflect changing risks.

It is not a case of if, or possibly, or could or might, it is a case of when…it is just a matter of time.

At the moment Muslims are a small percentage of the population, but as that grows so too do the problems. Once Muslims reach 5% of the population then real trouble starts. At the moment there are around 46,000 Muslims in New Zealand or around 1% of the population. Jews number just under 7,000 by way of comparison.

Dr Peter Hammond has looked at this and concludes:

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

We are still at the 1% level. France is way past 10% in some areas but around 8% in across the nation.

As I said it is just a matter of time.
