    It reflects the general malaise Europe has for fighting terrorism. They have repeatedly capitulated, bargained and ignored terrorism for short term gain

    Kind of puts me in mind of what President Reagan said when told that the bombing of Libya killed Qaddafi's child:

    "Today we have done what we had to do. If necessary, we shall do it again."

    Good point.

    We see in the recent history of Europe what I hope is not the future for our country, the denial of the import of national constitutions and sovereignty.

    Neither does the EU have a constitution, nor does the EU have an army or police force for common control of its borders. Thus it has political superiority over member states, but declines to be responsible for its defense. Inherent in this idea of transcending nation-states is the idea that defense is unimportant.

    It must, therefore exhibit the kind of weakness you point out.

    The EU is an example of internationalist thinking,

    People who expect to retain the benefits of sovereignty- such as defense and protection of rights, without constitutional discipline, without retaining responsibility for their own legal system, are putting all their faith in words or in the idea that as long as we say nice things about humanity, we will be safe.

    How the UK employed Prince Andrew, the Duke of York to set up Libyan oil deals for compassionate release of the Lockerbie bomber Megrahi.

    Prince Andrew, the Duke of York is the second son and third child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. As well as carrying out various royal duties, he currently serves as the United Kingdom's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment reporting to Peter Mandelson who is the UK's current First Secretary of State, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, President of the Board of Trade and Lord President of the Council. In that capacity he has visited Libya and met with Gaddafi several times to set up oil deals.

    In 2007, Prince Andrew was appointed by his mother, the Queen, as the Lord High Commissioner of the Church of Scotland in 2007, a post previously held by David Steel, the first Presiding Officer of the re-convened Scottish Parliament and a post now held by George Reid, the 2nd former Presiding Officer of the new Scottish Parliament.

    By use of such patronage, the UK royal family is able to form close links with influential persons in Scottish politics and with the Scottish churches.

    Therefore Prince Andrew has all the connections anyone would ever need to set up a Libyan oil deals for Scottish justice "compassionate release" for the Lockerbie bomber.

    Indeed, Colonel Gaddafi has publicly thanked Prince Andrew for arranging the release of Megrahi.

    So Peter Mandelson may claim to know nothing of any such deal :eusa_hand: but he certainly appointed the right person, Prince Andrew, to set such a deal up and it looks like that is exactly what has happened.

    Therefore whereas it may well be the case that Kenny MacAskill has not personally profited from Libyan oil deal money, it is entirely possible that some back channel deal involving third party donations to one or more of the Church of Scotland's worthy causes has bought pro-compassionate-release spiritual advice from the Church of Scotland clerics to Kenny MacAskill and it may be it is those who interpret MacAskill's Christian faith for him who were the ones who have convinced him that compassionate release was the thing to do in Megrahi's case.

    Certainly, the church is always short of money and certainly that is how Arab monarchs and dictators often operate in their own countries - by funding Islamic programmes and sometimes even getting the Islamic clerics to put out pro-jehadi messages when they wish to incite terrorist wars by proxy fought by the likes of Al Qaeda but in a plausibly deniable way which is not easily identified directly as being ordered by the monarch or dictator concerned.

    So supporting terrorism in this modest way has begun in European Christian churches as bought by Arab or African oil money. What is next?

    Are we going to see Libyan or other oil money funding Christian crusader suicide bombers, bought and paid for by oil deal money?

    It happened in the Arab world and it could happen here. The release of this terrorist is just the start unless we get wise to what this oil money in the wrong hands is buying - a terrorist war against our values of freedom and democracy and in favour of monarchy and dictatorship.
