(16Sept 06) “…On 9/11 (as now), I was a New Yorker living in Oslo . Yet that day I realized I'd never left home – for this was, I knew, an attack not only on my hometown but on the free world. Clearly, we were at war – not only with terrorists, but with their philosophical allies in the West….In the wake of 9/11, European leaders felt obliged to join America in invading Afghanistan. But the initial show of solidarity by politicians and intellectuals (“we are all Americans”) quickly gave way to declarations that the U.S. – by supporting Israel , buttressing Arab dictators, fostering globalism, etc. – had asked for 9/11. But not Europe . Europe was the Muslims' friend….Then came Madrid , London , Bali , Beslan, Mumbai. Van Gogh was butchered; Muslims rioted in France ; their coreligionists in Denmark rampaged over newspaper cartoons of Muhammed. The Western European elite played down, even denied, any connection among these events. Yet year by year the truth has become increasingly clear: though the U.S. was the target on 9/11, the front line of the war with Islamism is Europe….On 9/11, I would never have imagined that five years later, a man who refuses to condemn the stoning of female adulterers would be respected as the leading voice of “moderate” European Islam; that European governments would still be funding within their borders mosques and Muslim schools that teach contempt for democracy, Jews, gays, and sexual equality;…” 9/11, Five Years Later: A View From Europe by Bruce Bawer, FrontPage.com “…that Amsterdam mayor Job Cohen would argue for accepting the oppression of Muslim women in the West; and that Britain would still be sheltering radical clerics, Queen Elizabeth knighting the likes of Iqbal Sacranie (who calls homosexuality “unacceptable”), and London mayor Ken Livingstone praising as “progressive” the above-mentioned al-Qaradawi (who has defended suicide bombers and the execution of gays)…. would never have believed on 9/11 that in 2006, most Europeans would still be surprised to learn – to pluck two examples at random – that over seven in ten immigrant women in Sweden (according to an EU study) are affected by “honor-related violence” and that Jewish children (according to a French government report) “can no longer get an education” in France because of abuse by Muslim classmates….On 9/11, the free world was powerfully reminded of its freedom. In Europe, alas, that day's spirit has been steamrollered by an establishment that – apparently having already accepted the inevitability of Europe 's Islamization – routinely turn the truth on its head, representing aggressors as victims and self-defense as inflammatory….”
(27Aug06) “…In full view of passers-by, (Theo) van Gogh was stabbed 28 times before his killer, reciting verses from the Koran, slashed the filmmaker's throat in the manner Muslims slay sheep for sacrifice….Hardly any Muslim groups, moderate or otherwise, voiced public disapproval of van Gogh's murder except in the most formulaic way. In Islam, "silence is a sign of acceptance," as the Arabic Koranic saying goes….Along with multiple other attempts by European Muslims of Pakistani, Palestinian Arab, Egyptian, Moroccan, Algerian, and West Indian origin to kill and maim "infidels" over the past decade, the Amsterdam murder demonstrated the extent to which first-generation descendants of Muslims in Europe do not belong in any European society…What exactly are the Europeans waiting for before they round up all those Muslim warriors and their families and send them back to where they came from?...” Europe's Delayed Response to Muslims by Youssef Ibrahim, The New York Sun “…A few days ago, the Saudi jihadist Muhamad al-Massari proudly told the New York Times that he has every right to run a Web site that calls for the violent death of British and American soldiers in Iraq….By way of explanation, Dr. Massari — a physician who lives in London as one of many "approved" political refugees granted permanent residence in Britain — told the Times: "If you kill our civilians, we kill your civilians."… Despite its laws, England shares the dysfunctional political correctness of much of the European Union, which is preparing its own set of laws banning violent Islamic fascist mind-sets….A few, not nearly enough, European political leaders are beginning to see this situation for what it is: an irremediable clash of civilizations….”
(9July06) “…The day after tomorrow, Britain commemorates a sombre anniversary that is also ringing the loudest of alarm bells. One year on from last July's London bombings by two groups of British Muslim boys, the mortal threat to Britain from Islamist terror appears to have increased many times over… Many thousands of British Muslims are patriotic, law-abiding citizens. Indeed, last weekend saw the death in action of a British Muslim soldier, Jabron Hashmi, who was killed fighting for his country against the Taliban in Afghanistan . Yet according to the Populous poll, 13 per cent of Britain's 1.6 million Muslims believe the 7/7 bombers should be regarded as martyrs; between seven and 16 per cent per cent think suicide attacks on British targets can be justified; and two per cent would be proud if a family member joined al Qaeda, with a further 16 per cent who would be indifferent….. The disturbing fact is that, even after 7/7, both the political and security establishment and large parts of the Muslim community are in a lethal state of denial. They are refusing to acknowledge the true causes of the terrorist threat and taking refuge instead in various alibis…” State of Denial by Melanie Phillips “…In particular, what needs to be combated with the utmost vigour is the Muslim culture of grievance, the paranoid belief that the west is engaged in a conspiracy to aggressively attack and destroy the Islamic world… the establishment — which, in the name of multiculturalism, has a long record of appeasing minorities — is terrified to identify the cause of this terrorism as religious fanaticism, because it fears this might tar all Muslims with the same brush… It is beyond belief that nothing is being done to stop the recruitment and incitement to violence taking place not just in mosques and madrassahs but on campus, in youth clubs and in prisons... The July bombings were a wake-up call that has not yet been heeded. Only if Britain wakes up from its trance will it avoid even worse tragedies to come…”
(5July06) This is the MUST read for 2006
“… Since the early 1970s, EU officials and bureaucrats have been seeking to merge Europe with the Islamic world through massive Muslim immigration, writes Bernard Moran. All has been revealed in the 2005 publication of Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis , by a previously obscure Egyptian-born Jewish researcher, Bat Ye'or. Married to English historian David Littman, Bat Ye'or (Hebrew for "daughter of the Nile") now lives in a village in Switzerland ….Her research and documentation are considered unimpeachable. She describes the progress of the secretive 32-year Euro-Arab Dialogue (EAD), a joint initiative of the European Union (EU) and Arab governments. The meetings involving the EU political and bureaucratic elite and their Arab counterparts were closed, unpublished and, in Ye'or's words, "shielded from scrutiny and democratic control"….The European participants were mainly secularists and had little understanding of Islam, particularly the doctrines of Jihad, Sharia law and "dhimmitude" - the status of submission required of non-Muslims living in Islamic territory…..Their Arab counterparts viewed the EAD as providing myriad economic and technological benefits to their respective regions. As Muslims, it also provided the diplomatic weight of the EU political establishment in support of the Arab League agenda on Israel and Palestine, unprecedented opportunities for mass immigration, future demographic and political supremacy, thus achieving the long-term goal of bringing Europe into the House of Islam….” Europe: Muslim immigration and the rise of Eurabia “…Bat Ye'or provides a detailed chronicle of the process beginning in May 1945 when Charles de Gaulle, embittered about France's exclusion from the Yalta negotiations, rescued the notorious former Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin, from appearing at the Nuremberg Trials as a war criminal….Bat Ye'or described how Eurabia as a geopolitical reality was synchronised as an association called the Europe-Arab Dialogue (EAD) in July 1974 in Paris. She said: "The field of Euro-Arab collaboration covered every domain: from economy and policy to immigration. In foreign policy, it backed anti-Americanism, anti-Zionism and Israel 's delegitimization; the promotion of the PLO and [Yasser] Arafat; a Euro-Arab associative diplomacy in international forums; and NGO collaboration. …"In domestic policy, the EAD established a close cooperation between the Arab and European media: television, radio, journalists, publishing houses, academia, cultural centres, school textbooks, student and youth associations and tourism….”
(3July06)“…This week, for the very first time, a court in Europe sentenced nine members of the same family for the honour killing of a female relative…Honour killings, where a woman is murdered for the shame that she is said to have brought on her family, are a growing phenomenon in Western Europe …” Danes Sentence Entire Clan for Honour Killing By Filip van Laenen “…The Danish verdict is historic , not only because the entire clan was punished but also because the head of the family, who ordered the killing, was given a heavier sentence than the actual murderer. Families often choose a family member who is still a minor to carry out an honour assassination because, being a minor, he is likely to get a more lenient sentence under Western law…”
(5May06)“…I am not going to waste your time this morning with yet another treatise on the nature of Islam, with yet another refutation of the alleged dichotomy between "true Islam" (peaceful, tolerant, etc.) and its supposedly aberrant terrorist fringe. We are way beyond that…..Those who still have doubts on this score should read not only my books, but also those by Robert Spencer, Ibn Warraq, Bat Ye'or…and above all, they should read the Koran…. Another result is an elite consensus that de facto open immigration, multiculturalism, and the existence of a large Muslim diaspora within the Western world are to be treated as a fixed given, and must not be scrutinized in any anti-terrorist debate. That consensus, I contend, is ideological in nature, flawed in logic, dogmatic in application, and disastrous in its results….Even the ultra-tolerant Dutch have seen the light after Theo van Gogh's murder, but they are hamstrung by a ruling class composed of guilt-ridden self-haters and appeasers. Their hold on the political power, the media, and the academe is undemocratic, unnatural, obscene…” Jihad's Fellow-Travellers by Serge Trifkovic FrontPageMagazine.com “… If Europe is to survive they need to be unmasked for what they are: traitors to their nations and their culture. They must be replaced by people ready and willing to subject the issues of immigration and identity to the test of democracy, unhindered by administrative or judicial fiat… A foreigner who becomes naturalized has to declare, on oath, "that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty” etc…. For a Muslim to declare all of the above in good faith, and especially that he accepts the Constitution of the United States as the source of his highest loyalty, is an act of apostasy par excellence under the Islamic law…. So how can a self-avowedly devout Muslim take the oath, and expect the rest of us to believe that it was done in good faith? Because he is practicing taqiyya, the art of dissimulation that was inaugurated by Muhammad to help destabilize and undermine non-Muslim communities almost ripe for a touch of Jihad…”
(4May06) Libyan Leader, Moammar Gadhafi. Still crazy after all these years.
"…We have 50 million Muslims in Europe," Gadhafi said. "There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe – without swords, without guns, without conquests. The 50 million Muslims of Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades."…. Europe is in a predicament, and so is America ," Gadhafi said. "They should agree to become Islamic in the course of time, or else declare war on the Muslims…" Global Jihad: Gadhafi: Islam taking over Europe “… Excerpts of Gadhafi's speech, broadcast April 10, were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute , or MEMRI. A video clip of the speech can by viewed online …."Some people believe that Muhammad is the prophet of the Arabs or Muslims alone. This is a mistake. Muhammad is the prophet of all people…He superseded all previous religions. If Jesus were alive when Muhammad was sent, he would have followed him. All people must be Muslims…"The so-called Old Testament and New Testament are neither Old Testament nor New Testament - because both testaments were superseded, and they are forged. They were written by hand hundreds of years after Jesus….." "In the Bible there are things that are inappropriate for both Jesus and Moses. If we want to mend the state of humanity, and live in a global village, because of the globalization, we must search for the true Bible, because the Bible that exists today is a forgery. Today's Bible does not mention Muhammad, whereas our Lord's Bible mentions Muhammad repeatedly…"
(28April06) “…What can you expect of French politicians? Surrender. They did it 66 years ago when German armies invaded France . They did it again three years ago when it became obvious it was necessary to topple Saddam Hussein's rogue regime. They did it once more in the first days of April, this year. No army was involved this time: just rioters and strikers. But that was enough. Surrender is a habit deeply engrained in the French political character…. the country is crumbling. It will keep crumbling until the election and it will crumble even more after the election. Everybody thinks there will be more riots. Everybody knows there will be more radical Muslims…” The Slow Death of Europe by Guy Millière FrontPageMagazine.com “…The mediocrity of politicians is almost the same in every country. People in the street look sad and have the sensation of being faced with only a grim future….It took al-Qaeda bomb attacks in Madrid to push the Spanish people to vote out an ally of the United States and the father of Spain 's economic revival while handing power to a leftist with a dhimmi mentality. It took nothing to push the Italians in the same direction… The rhythm is different from one country to another, but the dirge like music is the same. For decades, Europeans dreamed of building a great power. The dream could not have a happy end: it was not based on responsibility, but on dependency. Europeans took advantage of the protection America offered to pump money into their welfare states. From cradle to grave was their promise; and little by little, the graves started outnumbering the cradles…”
(23April06) “…Multiculturalism and the inability or unwillingness of Western nations to uphold their borders from massive immigration is viewed by Muslims as an invitation for attack and a signal that their ancient Western rival is weak and ripe for conquest. This is no doubt the background for the ongoing aggressive posture by the Iranian president, among others….Muslims really do believe that the time has now come for overthrowing the West and putting Islam into the global, dominant position it should have according to their scriptures. They will spare no efforts, including nuclear war, in achieving this goal. The Iranian president has quite openly stated that “Islam will soon rule the world,” which implies that they will have to destroy or subdue the West…” The Retreat of the Western World Order by Fjordman filing via Gates of Vienna. “....Al-Qaeda strategists have earlier outlined a schedule for awakening the Islamic world and crushing the West, with a timeline stretching over the coming fifteen to twenty years. They still stick to this plan, which means that tensions are bound to escalate even further in the near future. Westerners need to understand that a world war of sorts with the Islamic world is already inevitable by now, no matter what we do….By quite literally putting a dagger at Europe 's throat, the Islamic world will force Europeans to renew themselves or die. Europe will go through a turbulent period of painful, but necessary revival, and will arrive chastened on the other side…Just as Imperialism caused WW1, Fascism WW2 and Communism the Cold War, Multiculturalism and Muslim immigration will drag the West into a war with the Islamic world. Instead of a Westernization of the Balkans, we get a Balkanization of the West….”
(21April06)“…Ali Sina is the Iranian ex-Muslim behind the website faithfreedom.org . Along with other former Muslims such as Ibn Warraq, Sina is spearheading what may be the first organized movement of ex-Muslims in Islamic history, made possible during the past ten to fifteen years by Muslim immigration to the West and the growth of the Internet….It is no exaggeration to say that if the likes of Ali Sina, Ibn Warraq and Wafa Sultan prevail in the face of the traditional death penalty for leaving Islam, then Islam will never again be the same. This is the soft underbelly of Islam ….According to Ali Sina, the West is now a moral relativistic society, where the vacuum created by religion is sorely felt. But at the same time, Sina questions whether a return to religion is the way to go…..I have found that the West at the beginning of the 21st century is mired in an internal cultural battle , an ideological civil war over the purpose of the West that is sometimes so severe that combined with Muslim immigration it could even trigger physical civil wars in several Western nations in the near future….” Do We Need Religion? Part 1 by Wolfgang Bruno “…O ne of the contenders is what I will label the ideology of egalitarianism, of which Multiculturalism is the most prominent component. If you analyze the ideology of Egalitarianism, is has Marxist roots in ideas about forced equality. Basically, it says that all cultures are more or less equal, and that there is nothing particular about Western civilization that makes it worth preserving. It may even be worse than all other cultures. To display attachment to your own culture is considered racism and frowned upon. As is to be expected with its Marxist roots, it has its stronghold of support in the political Left. However, what makes Egalitarianism and Multiculturalism particularly dangerous is that its support transcends that of the traditional Left and has penetrated deep into the traditional Right, too. As long as large parts of our elites adhere to the notion that all cultures are equal, it will be impossible to mount any defense of the West. Which means that Multiculturalism and Egalitarianism need to be discredited if Europe is to have any chance of surviving….”
(21April06)“….In my essay about the retreat of the Western world order, I mentioned the possibility of civil strife in the West caused by runaway immigration. This is no longer just a theoretical possibility…The unemployment rate for youths under 26 is a staggering 22 percent nationwide, but soars to nearly 50 percent in some of those troubled areas with many Muslim immigrants…Around 70% of French prisoners are Muslims. Hundreds of Muslim ghettos are already de facto following sharia, not French law…opinion polls show that the French are now officially the most anti-capitalist nation on earth. France has chosen Socialism and Islam. It will get both, and sink into a quagmire of its own making…People keep talking about the nukes that the Iranians may get, but what about the hundreds of nuclear warheads the French have? Will they be used to intimidate the rest of the West? How do we handle an Islamic France, still the heartland of the European continent, with Muslim control of hundreds of nukes? And how do we handle a Bosnia or Lebanon with a population much larger than either of these countries, and with hundreds of nuclear warheads at stake??” The Fall of France and the Multicultural World War by The noted blogger Fjordman, filing this report via Gates of Vienna. “…I guess there is some poetic justice in the fact that the country that initiated and has led the creation of Eurabia now gets consumed by its own Frankenstein monster…the merger of Europe and the Arab-Islamic world has been encouraged by the French political elite in particular at least since the early 1970s, with a vision of creating a united Europe and Mediterranean basin under French leadership, in what has basically been a French dream since the age of Napoleon, the great hero of current French PM de Villepin…the downfall of Communism in the East happened through a relatively bloodless “Velvet Revolution,” whereas the downfall of Multiculturalism in the West may turn out to be anything but bloodless. And it will come, sooner than many people think. Multiculturalism, cultural Marxism and the idea of forced cultural equality, will collapse just as Communism, the idea of economic Marxism and forced economic equality fell…If history is any guide, today's decadent, bored, post-religious and post-nationalist Europe will be no match for Islam, unless it rediscovers a belief in its own culture and a will to defend it….”
(15April06) “…Witness the latest European Union (EU) pronouncement , which advocates an exclusive definition of jihad as “spiritual struggle” in the public discourse, lest the tender sensibilities of Muslims be offended. According to the wise and courageous EU leadership, non-Muslim Dorothys and Scarecrows and Tin Men and most appropriately, Cowardly Lions, should simply ignore the jihadists fulminating behind their civilizational veil, endlessly invoking an authentic and uniquely Islamic institution— jihad war —which has shaped human history for over 13 centuries, through the present….” When is Jihad Not Jihad The American Thinker “…Al-Ghazali (d. 1111), the famous theologian, philosopher wrote “O]ne must go on jihad (i.e., warlike razzias or raids) at least once a year…one may use a catapult against them [non-Muslims] when they are in a fortress, even if among them are women and children. One may set fire to them and/or drown them…” “…A perverse, depressingly real-life scene from the “Wizard of Oz” fantasy is now unfolding in Western Europe . EU bureaucrats—playing the well-known aquiline-nosed, broomstick-riding character from movie version—have cast a spell (“ Sleep…Sleep ”) on their non-Muslim constituent Dorothys, Scarecrows, Tin Men and Cowardly Lions, hoping to keep them slumbering in fields of poisonous poppies. Regardless of whether they awaken, it may already be too late..”
(13April06) This should ring bells in the aftermath of the Cronulla riots.
“…two months ago when hundreds of Muslim protesters in London displayed signs threatening to behead Westerners for “insulting” Islam, the British police took notes —they took notes —but said they didn't want to arrest anyone at the moment for fear of setting off a riot. Ok, that moment passed two months ago, and no one has been arrested since then. Meanwhile, Bryan Cork, 49, of Carlisle, Cumbria, in the Lake District, has been sentenced to six months in prison for standing outside a mosque last November and shouting, “Proud to be British,” and “Go back to where you came from...” How long will the British stand for this by Laurence Auster “…He could be anybody. He's just an ordinary man, of average intelligence, who expects his government to protect him.…he sees these people are enemies, and he doesn't see anything happening to them, because the lawful authorities do nothing…. He doesn't even get probation, a first-time offender. All for having normal reactions in a country where the government has abandoned its own people and is now on the side of criminals and enemies… Such a government—a government that makes war on its own people on behalf of unassimilable aliens and jihadist savages and their “moderate” spokesmen like “Sir” Iqbal Sacranie—is not a legitimate government…”
(30Mar06) “… Last year, I wrote a post about how Swedish society was disintegrating and was in danger of collapsing, at least in certain areas and regions. The country that gave us Bergman, ABBA and Volvo could become known as the Bosnia of northern Europe . The “Swedish model” would no longer refer to a stable and peaceful state with an advanced economy, but a Eurabian horror story of utopian Multiculturalism, Socialist mismanagement and runaway immigration…The wave of robberies the city of Malmö has witnessed during this past year is part of a “war against Swedes.”… Although Sweden is an extreme example, similar stories could be told about much of Western Europe . As Mark Steyn points out, the Jihad in the streets of France looked like the early skirmishes of an impending Eurabian civil war, brought on by massive Muslim immigration and Multicultural stupidity. The War Against Swedes by Fjordman “…Law and order is slowly breaking down in major and even minor cities across the European continent, and the streets are ruled by aggressive gangs of Muslim youngsters… It's getting urgent. When enough people feel that the system isn't working anymore and that the social contract has been breached, the entire fabric of the democratic society could unravel. What happens when the welfare state system breaks down… And what happens when people discover that their own leaders, through the EU networks and the Euro-Arab Dialogue described by Bat Ye'or in her book “Eurabia,” have been encouraging all these Muslims to settle here in the first place? There will be massive unemployment, and tens of millions of people will feel angry, scared and humiliated, betrayed by the system, by society and by their own democratic leaders..”
(20Mar06) “…The prison at Guantanamo Bay was designed to interrogate terrorists and jihadists swept up from the battlefield:… for all the fury about its existence, not a single detainee has died there in over four years of operation…. In contrast, the European Milosevic just dropped dead while under custody of the U.N. at the postmodern tribunal at The Hague . This follows the recent suicide of Croatian Serb leader Milan Babic, likewise an inmate in a European detention center..” Teflon Europe by Victor Davis Hanson “..The public wonders why the incompetent Americans can't catch Osama bin Laden, or at least Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Few note that it has been over six years since the collapse of the Serbian rogue regime, and still no one seems to know where either Radovan Karadzic, or his military commander, Ratko Mladic, is hiding inside Europe — not exactly the Sunni Triangle or the borderlands of the Hindu Kush …. Europe cringed at George Bush's use of cowboyisms, like "smoke 'em out" and "dead-or-alive" — hardly the parlance of sober and sophisticated statesmen, who should hint at, rather than brag of, their substantial military power. But once again, contrast Bush's words with Jacques Chirac's recent boastful threat that France would consider a nuclear response to any country sponsoring a terror attack against it. Had Bush said anything close to that, the Europeans would be trying to indict him in Brussels for war thought-crimes.
(19Mar06) “…One thousand years ago Scandinavians were the barbarians of Europe , spreading fear and extracting “Danegeld” from their more civilized neighbors. In the 21st century Scandinavians are peaceful and soft-spoken, and the roles seem to have been reversed with certain newly arrived immigrants…. In Denmark right-wing politicians are already debating the threat of immigrant “welfare tourists,” should the Swedish system collapse. In Norway almost half of all children with a non-Western background claim social security benefits. This is ten times the rate of the native population… Although the cost of welfare is significant, it pales in comparison to the price paid through rapidly declining social harmony and increasing insecurity caused by Muslim immigration…” When Danes Pay Danegeld-Dealing with Islam in Scandinavia The Brussels Journal “..There is growing fear amongst politicians that the immigrant environment in the Nørrebro area in Copenhagen , which has been unofficially declared an “Islamic state” by some of its residents, is developing into a parallel society where ancient traditions threaten Danish law. Professor of Islamic studies Mehdi Mozaffari tells of how he and thousands of others have fled burkas, sharia, blood money, muftis and Islamism in the Middle East, only to witness the same beast rear its ugly head in Europe …. Probably no other Western nation has more problems with, yet less debate about Muslim immigration than Sweden, and the only thing the elites are doing about this is demonizing neighboring Denmark for “xenophobia… Scandinavians, too, were once involved in blood feuds and fanaticism. That time is called the Viking Age, and we left it behind a thousand years ago, as Muslims should have done. We have no particular urge to return to being a primitive tribal society….”
(14Mar06) “..In The Force of Reason, the controversial Italian journalist and novelist Oriana Fallaci illuminates one of the central enigmas of our time. How did Europe become home to an estimated 20 million Muslims in a mere three decades?... There is no one she despises more than the intellectual “cicadas,” as she calls them — “You see them every day on television; you read them every day in the newspapers” — who deny they are in the midst of a cultural, political and existential war with Islam, of which terrorism is the flashiest, but ultimately least important component….The book is also animated by a world-class journalist's dismay that she could have missed the story of her lifetime for as long as she did. In the 1960s and '70s, when she was a Vietnam War correspondent and a legendarily ferocious interviewer — going mano a mano with the likes of Henry Kissinger and Yasser Arafat, Fallaci was simply too preoccupied with the events of the moment to notice that an entirely different narrative was rapidly taking shape — namely, the transformation of the West….Only later did she realize that he “also meant the cultural war, the demographic war, the religious war waged by stealing a country from its citizens…” In The Fallaci Code Oriana Fallaci asks: Is Muslim immigration to Europe a conspiracy? By Bredan Bernhard, LA Weekly “… I n short, the war waged through immigration, fertility, presumed pluriculturalism.” It is a low-level but deadly war that extends across the planet, as any newspaper reader can see….These entities, Fallaci says, not mincing her words, were the official perpetrators “of the biggest conspiracy that modern history has created,” and Eurabia was their house organ….Briefly put, the alleged plot was an arrangement between European and Arab governments according to which the Europeans, still reeling from the first acts of PLO terrorism and eager for precious Arabian oil made significantly more precious by the 1973 OPEC crisis, agreed to accept Arab “manpower” (i.e., immigrants) along with the oil. They also agreed to disseminate propaganda about the glories of Islamic civilization, provide Arab states with weaponry, side with them against Israel and generally tow the Arab line on all matters political and cultural….”
(14Mar06) “…I had been invited to deliver the closing speech to the memorial conference on what would have been Fortuyn's 58th birthday. I said I would talk on the effects of Europe 's increasingly Islamicised population and advocate a tougher European counterterror strategy… But the story of Holland — which I have been charting for some years — should be noted by her allies. Where Holland has gone, Britain and the rest of Europe are following. The silencing happens bit by bit. A student paper in Britain that ran the Danish cartoons got pulped. A London magazine withdrew the cartoons from its website after the British police informed the editor they could not protect him, his staff, or his offices from attack. This happened only days before the police provided 500 officers to protect a “peaceful” Muslim protest in Trafalgar Square … . We should fear Holland 's silence Douglas Murray The Sunday Times “… Europe is shuffling into darkness. It is proving incapable of standing up to its enemies, and in an effort to accommodate the peripheral rights of a minority is failing to protect the most basic rights of its own people…. The governments of Europe have been tricked into believing that criticism of a belief is the same thing as criticism of a race. And so it is becoming increasingly difficult and dangerous to criticise a growing and powerful ideology within our midst. It may soon, in addition, be made illegal… Holland — with its disproportionately high Muslim population — is the canary in the mine. Its once open society is closing, and Europe is closing slowly behind it. It looks, from Holland , like the twilight of liberalism — not the “liberalism” that is actually libertarianism, but the liberalism that is freedom. Not least freedom of expression…”

(12Mar06) "Denial is an often useful innate human trait. Few of us would be able to function in the present if we did not put out of mind many unpleasant realities — such as our inevitable death…But when a person, or a society, denies emerging or imminent dangers, the peace of mind it gains will be extremely short-term, while the harm may be sustained or fatal…I have been in contact with British politicians who tell me that there is increasing radical Muslim street violence in Britain that is explicitly motivated by radical Islam but is not reported or characterized as such. Even in its cleansed versions, I am told, these incidents are being extremely under-reported." Denial by Tony Blankley The Washington Times ...

This event, too, was underreported or not reported at all in American media."

In 2000, there were 900,000 foreigners living in Spain . That figure has now risen to 3.7 million (8.5 per cent of the population), an increase of more than 400 per cent….By one estimate, Spain has received more immigrants in the past five years than France received in the previous four decades….” Spain counts cost of growing intake of migrants By Anthony Ham in The Age, “…Last year, Spain received 560,000 immigrants, one-third of Europe 's total. This massive demographic shift is starting to take its toll. A survey published in January found that 60 per cent of Spaniards believe that there are too many immigrants in Spain . In 1996, the figure was just 8 per cent….The poll also found that almost twice as many Spaniards see immigration as a more important problem facing Spain than terrorism and there is a widespread perception that the riots that rocked France late last year may offer a vision of the country's future…”

It has lessons for us all as we move on from naïve multiculturalism to confront the real problems of our inner cities, especially the disaffection of some second-generation immigrants….Though it focuses on London's East End community, the profoundly important issues that it raises could equally apply to any of our major post-industrial cities, where uncontrolled immigration has given rise to tensions between communities…” a review of the book The New East End “…The thrust of the book seems to have emerged almost by accident. The authors, from the Young Foundation, a think-tank on social issues, were following up a study of working class life in the East End conducted in the 1950s… young male Bangladeshi told researchers: ‘I did a course on “tolerance and diversity” at the youth club. It was designed to counteract racism by working closely with white youths. ‘The course did not last long. We got into more fights with these white boys.' Indeed, by 1998 more whites in Tower Hamlets were reporting themselves as the victims of racial incidents than were reported as perpetrators … The Bangladeshi population of Tower Hamlets increased from fewer than 3,000 in 1971 to over 65,000 in 2001. And, nationally, foreign immigration has trebled under the present government to over one third of a million in 2004 . No society can integrate immigrants at such a pace. We are simply building up problems for the future….”
(5Mar06) This is a long but essential read to understand how and why Europe and the West is where it is.
Douglas Murray explains in his speech at the Pym Fortuyn Memorial Conference, w hy European intellectual and political leaders will not stand up to radical Islam. The infection, writes Murray is relativism. A culture which is imbued with relativism, argues Murray , can in the end find no reason to fight for its own salvation.
“…Much of the threat we face today bears no similarity to the Nazi threat of the thirties. We do not face vast militarized units, we are not seeing the absorption of nations into a military superstate, and we can be all but certain that we will not in our lifetimes again see the mass mobilization of Europe 's citizenry. By all these things we are comforted….Were troops in blackshirts or jackboots to come marching back through our cities today, not a European country would stand for it…As in the 1930s, Europe is tired of war. So when war has been launched upon it, Europe pretends it is not war, and fails to fight back….Europeans are making a worse confrontation down the line more likely: in their effort to pretend-away the risk, the risk is swelling….what makes it so dangerous now, is that in the current war the enemy is, as a demographic and political fact, massed not just on foreign shores, but within the gates of our cities…” A speech to the Pim Fortuyn Memorial Conference on Europe and Islam by Douglas Murray “…The collision of forceful Islam with European spinelessness and dhimmitude is fatal for our free societies… Dhimmitude rises when people think the feelings of a threatening minority matter more than cherished native traditions of free-speech…Dhimmitude begins in such small ways, but it is growing into a big problem…Anyone who thinks that Islamic populations in the West are going to convert to relativism before we are all converted, or subjugated, to Islam is living in a fantasy…When we stare in disbelief at tolerance of the intolerable and the slow turning of that tolerance into acceptance and then acquiescence in evil, we are seeing Europeans acting out the last stages of nihilist philosophy. It is a way of looking at – and acting in – the world which will ruin Europe if we do not rid ourselves of it….”
(5Mar06) “… Europe 's current problems are entirely self-inflicted. This does not mean, however, that the result will be less catastrophic. By subverting the roots of its own Judeo-Christian culture – a process that started with the French Enlightenment (as opposed to the Scottish Enlightenment , which was not anti-religious) – a religious and cultural vacuum was created at the heart of European civilization. The collapse of faith in its own values has, not surprisingly, led to a demographic collapse because a civilization that no longer believes in its own future also rejects procreation..” The Closing of Civilisation in Europe By Paul Belian “…In Europe a secularized post-Christian culture is facing a Muslim one… America 's “conservative reserves” are far stronger than Europe's, because America , unlike secular Europe , has remained rooted to a larger extent in traditional Christian values…. The coming decade will witness the war between the values of Islam and the secular “values” of the decadent, hedonistic post-Marxist Left. We have seen the assassinations of Pim Fortuyn and Theo van Gogh, last November's prelude to the French civil war, the Danish cartoon case. This is just the beginning of the beginning…”
(5Mar06) “…It's hello, India , and goodbye, Europe, as the United States seeks out a strong new partner in world affairs, one that is growing, bold and confident instead of one that is hiding from the future and in steep decline. …If Congress approves the treaty, the United States is embracing an India that, during the Cold War, frequently sided with the Soviet Union 's evil ambitions… something remarkable happened. Free markets happened…” So long Europe; hello , India by Jay Ambrose “…India today has a 7 percent to 8 percent growth rate, an innovative entrepreneurial class, highly efficient corporations and the prospect of becoming one of the largest economies in the world in the years ahead. It is already the world's largest democracy. It wants to be a major world player, and it will be… Contrast this comfortable, sleepy Europe afraid of disturbing the status quo with a vibrant, wide-awake India that is pulling itself out of desperate circumstances, and you can see why the United States is beginning to look East instead of West as it considers its own most fundamental interests in the century ahead…”
(5Mar06) A poll published last week (Feb. 19) in Britain's Sunday Telegraph , reveals that four out of every ten British Muslims want Sharia law introduced in areas of the country which are pre-dominantly Muslim, while 41 percent oppose it…Sharia law is used in large parts of the Middle East, most notably in countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia…. The law also contains detailed rules for practically every aspect of life and is made up of elements from the Koran and the Hadith besides rulings by Muslim judges from the first centuries of Islam..” Dispatch from the Eurabian Front: Sharia Law in the West? By Hjörtur Gudmundsson “…The Norwegian human rights think tank Human Rights Service (HRS) recently warned against compromising with Islamists. “There is a gulf between secular democracy and Islamism as a totalitarian ideology which goes hand in hand with fascism, communism and nazism. Indications of the similarities between those ideologies is the Islamists' derogative views on Jews, that they exalt themselves as superior people, and that they want to subvert secular democracy,” said Hege Storhaug from HRS to the Norwegian newspaper Klassekampen .
(25Feb06) “…The sweeping and dramatic shift going on in Europe is chronicled to stunning effect in Bruce Bawer's new book, While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam is Destroying the West from Within. The title, I think, underplays the case made in the book that Western European governments are actively financing a mass migration of fundamentalists, and shying away from enforcing any laws against the immigrants, even laws against rape and murder. Those governments decry as racist any attempt to prosecute the offenders, thereby protecting the very society that has vowed to destroy them. … Bawer illustrates at length the stunning degree to which European elite have their heads in the sand. With a centuries-long tradition of proclaiming themselves open-minded, while perpetuating their own flavor of a caste-system, the continent is mired in a fog of self-reverential group-think, unable to acknowledge - let alone deal with - their changing world. Europe sleeps, Islam seethes (a review) by Scott C. Yates “..As Bawer points out, the immigrants are fully aware of the stunning demographic swing. He writes: "A T-shirt popular among young Muslims in Stockholm reads: '2030 - then we take over.'" They aren't talking about electing a member of parliament, either. When they say "death to Western Civilization," they aren't using hyperbole - they want so-called "sharia" law, complete with stoning women accused of adultery, etc. Among a massive list of Bawer's unsettling facts about the immigrants is this: Islamist school children in France today are refusing to draw right angles in math class because it looks too much like a Christian cross….This book is thorough, insightful and depressing. It does not end with any kind of silver lining of hope. That said, if you want to understand the car burnings, the killings over cartoons and films, and other outrages sure to come, you won't do any better than While Europe Slept..”
(23Feb06) “…It is easy to damn the 1930s appeasers of Hitler — such as Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain in England and Edouard Daladier in France — given what the Nazis ultimately did when unleashed. But history demands not merely recognizing the truth post facto, but also trying to reconstruct the rationale of something that now in hindsight seems inexplicable…British intellectuals, like European Union idealists today, wrote books and treatises on the obsolescence of war. Conflicts were supposedly caused only by rapacious arms merchants and profiteers at home, not by anti-democratic dictators who interpreted forbearance as weakness. Winston Churchill was a voice in the wilderness — and demonized as a warmonger and worse…” Appeasement 101 by Victor Davis Hanson “…But deja vu pertains not just to us, but our enemies as well. Like the Nazi romance of an exalted ancient Volk, the Islamists hearken back to a mythical purity, free of decadence brought on by Western liberalism. Similarly, they feed off victimization — not just recent defeats, but centuries-old bitterness at the rise of the West. Their version of the stab-in-the-back Versailles Treaty is always the creation of Israel….Just as Hitler concocted incidents such as the burning of the Reichstag to create outrage, Islamist leaders incite frenzy in their followers over a supposed flushed Koran at Guantanamo and several inflammatory cartoons, some of them never published by Danish newspapers at all…”
(21Feb06) " Leaving Islam was not easy. According to the literal interpretation of the Koran, the punishment for apostasy is death - and it actually is punished by death in some Middle Eastern states….. Dr Sookhdeo continued to study Islam, doing a PhD at London University on the religion. He is currently director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity….So his claim that, in the next decade, the Muslim community in Britain will not be integrated into mainstream British society, but will isolate itself to a much greater extent, carries weight behind it….The Government, and Tony Blair, the Prime Minister, are fundamentally deluded about the nature of Islam," he insists…They simply do not realise how seriously Muslims take their religion. Islamic clerics regard themselves as locked in mortal combat with secularism…” The day is coming when British Muslims form a state within a state by Alisdair Palmer Telegraph “…Islamic clerics do not believe in a society in which Islam is one religion among others in a society ruled by basically non-religious laws. They believe it must be the dominant religion - and it is their aim to achieve this….That is why they do not believe in integration. In 1980, the Islamic Council of Europe laid out their strategy for the future - and the fundamental rule was never dilute your presence. That is to say, do not integrate….There should be no compromise over education, or over English as the language of education. The policy of political multiculturalism should be reversed…”
(19Feb06) ‘What is at stake in the controversy over the Danish newspaper Jylland-Posten cartoons featuring the Prophet Muhammad goes beyond such issues as freedom of the press and free speech. At the heart of this matter is whether triumphalist Islam will succeed in intimidating the West and impose its will on Europe , or, will the West and the Europeans in particular, finally discover their pride and dignity and refuse to become dhimmis? ( Dhimmis are populations of Jews and Christians vanquished by Islamic jihad, tolerated, and allowed to practice their religion, but at a dehumanizing cost) It's the Jihad, Stupid by Joseph Puder “.. The free world must realize that what is happening in Europe is nothing less than a Jihad--a religious war bent on imposing Islamic values and Sharia laws…. It was only a matter of time before the Jihadists would seek to settle the score with Europe and the Europeans...Europe today, much like in the last days of the Roman Empire , is seeking to buy off or appease the “barbarians.” '
(9Feb06) "First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up, because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me."
This famous statement can be updated for Europeans:
“…As long as Muslim demonstrators only shouted "Death to America" and "Death to Israel," Europe (and the rest of the world's Left) found reasons either to ignore the Nazi-like evil inherent in those chants (and the homicidal actions that flowed from them) or to blame America and Israel for the hatred…. here in America, a left-of-center columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Tim Rutten, just wrote: "It's no longer possible to overlook the culture of intolerance, hatred and xenophobia that permeates the Islamic world." First they came for Israel, then they came for America ...By Dennis Prager “…As it happens, I have sympathy with the notion that newspapers and others need to be sensitive to religious, including Muslim, sensibilities. However, when Muslim governments and religious spokesmen attack the West for its insensitivity to Muslims and its anti-Muslim prejudice, one has entered the Twilight Zone. Because nowhere in the world is there anywhere near the religious bigotry and sheer hatred of other religions that exists in the Muslim world….”
(29Jan06) “…This week the Dutch Parliament voted a bill which obliges immigrants to pass a compulsory exam. The Dutch Parliament is also in favour of a proposal to have troublesome youths disciplined and drilled by the army…. There are 40,000 jobless youths in the Netherlands , who have left school without degrees. The majority of them is of foreign origin. Many become involved in criminal activities. Dutch Introduce Exams for Immigrants, Consider Army Drill for Youths by Paul Belian in The Brussels Journal “A majority of Dutch parliamentarians, including members of the Socialist opposition, supports a plan to discipline them in military style…. The proposal was made this week by the former entrepreneur Hans de Boer , who was recently appointed by the government to head the Taskforce for Youth Unemployment…. De Boer wants the “prep camps” to be able to train 4,000 youths per year, so that they learn “to get out of their beds and clean their shoes.”
(13Jan06) “…Islamic fundamentalists have an arrogance that matches their intolerance for Western values. How else can one explain their efforts to limit free expression in countries that have graciously allowed Muslim immigrants the freedom to follow even the most radical movements within their faith…” Islamic intimidation dashed in Demark in the Las Vegas Review Journal “..Last year, Jyllands-Posten , Denmark 's biggest daily newspaper, asked 40 artists to submit caricatures of the Islamic prophet Muhammad…. The newspaper wanted to find out whether the country's freedom of speech had been eroded by Islamic intimidation…. Because Islamic tradition prohibits any depiction of Muhammad -- even positive ones -- Muslims attacked the newspaper. They demanded an apology, then they demanded that the editors and artists be prosecuted..”
(7Jan06) “…The interior ministers of two German states have recently advanced important measures for containing radical Islam. They bear close attention across the West….In Baden-Wurtenberg, Heribert Rech of the ruling Christian Democratic Union party has overseen the administering of a 30-topic loyalty test for applicants to become naturalized citizens..” Two Germans vs. Islamism by Daniel Pipes “..Because survey research finds that 21% of Muslims living in Germany believe the German constitution irreconcilable with the Koran, the written yes-no questions of yesteryear are history for Muslim applicants for citizenship…The questions amount to a summary of Western values….Applicants who pass the test and are granted citizenship could later lose that citizenship if they act inconsistently with their "correct" answers…”
(28Nov05) “…It is now unmistakable that Europe faces a "perfect storm" of socio-economic, demographic, military and Islamist challenges. As a result, the European Union is poised in the coming decades to become, at best, a strife-ridden, second-rate power, unwilling or unable to help defend the Free World….Today, however, the European project is in shambles. Somewhere along the way, its social market model lost steam and became counterproductive to economic growth. Current statistics indicate that by the mid-1990s, Europe had already begun falling behind the United States , as measured both by GDP and productivity growth..” Farewell to Europe by Frank J Gaffney and Alex Alexiev “..The future looks even more bleak...In the past half-century, the Muslim population in Western Europe has exploded from less than 250,000 to between 15 and 20 million. Although this still represents only a small percentage of the EU's total inhabitants, the Muslim subset is not only rapidly growing. It has also become progressively radicalized…Today, an intolerant and violent extremist political ideology known as Islamofacism has taken hold throughout Muslim communities not just in France but in much of Western Europe . Moreover, this fast-spreading strain is already on its way to becoming the dominant face of Islam in the EU..”
(22Nov05)“..During the past five years there has been a fierce debate in The Netherlands on the feasibility of a peaceful multicultural society. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali refugee and now a member of parliament, is outspoken in her warnings against the aggressive nature of Islam and has urged the Government to demand from Dutch Muslims unequivocal acceptance of the Dutch constitution and Western norms and values.” The Dutch experience with Islam by Paul Schnabel The Australian “…The policy of Integration and Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk can be described as strict adherence to the rule of law. The number of asylum-seekers and immigrants has dropped substantially in recent years (from more than 60,000 10 years ago to less than 10,000) and newcomers are obliged to take integration and language courses"
(22Nov05)“..A year after his (Theo van Gogh's) murder, The Netherlands is a country transformed. Previously, only the Queen and Prime Minister had police protection, and ministers cycled to their ministries. Now, many politicians, writers and artists are considered to be in such danger that they have permanent armed guards and are driven around in bomb-proof armoured cars Fanatics Terrorise A Nation by Anthony Browne, The Australian “..Across town, police are investigating the shot fired at the window of Rita Verdonk, the Immigration Minister, who has become a hate figure among Muslim communities for introducing some of the strictest immigration laws in Europe, and insisting that Muslims should integrate…In The Netherlands, terrorists want to threaten not only the public ... they also want to kill public figures, such as artists, academics and politicians…It is not special in terms of Islam -- in Iran, it is normal to kill people who criticise Islam, as in Egypt and Iraq. It is legitimised by Islamic political theology, which says it is all right to kill someone if they are an enemy of Allah. But this is happening in Europe ."
(20Nov05) “…Officially, to be sure, France is less multicultural than most European countries - witness its rejection of religious labels in public documents and its ban on hijabs in schools. But enduring segregation is a fact of life in France as it is elsewhere on the continent. Millions of "French Muslims" don't consider themselves French…Many Muslims, wanting to enjoy Western prosperity but repelled by Western ways, travel regularly back to their homelands. From Oslo , where I live, there are more direct flights every week to Islamabad than to the US .” Not all Muslims want to integrate By Bruce Bawer “… What they've reaped, alas, is a generation of Muslims, many of whom view their neighborhoods as colonies amid enemy territory - and who demand this autonomy be recognized. In Britain , imams have pressed the government to designate part of Bradford as being under Muslim law….No surprise, then, that a Muslim rioter in Arhus , Denmark , the other day cried out: "This area belongs to us!" Amir Taheri, editor of Politique Internationale, noted that the main reason for the French riots is not that two youths died hiding from cops in a transformer station; it's that the state responded to the initial unrest by sending police into an area that many locals saw as their own inviolate domain. These riots, in short, are early battles in a continent-wide turf war…”
(19Nov05)“…The process of migrating and establishing a Muslim community in a non-Muslim context has an important place in Islamic theology. The word hijra is used to describe such a migration, in particular the migration of Mohammed and his followers in ad 622 from Mecca, where they were persecuted, to Medina where they established the first Islamic state…Muslims see the establishment of a Muslim community in the UK as a contemporary hijra…” Will London burn too by Patrick Sookhdeo (Spectator Magazine) “…. A book published in 1980 by the Islamic Council of Europe gives instructions for how Muslim minorities are to work towards achieving domination of European countries through a policy of concentration in geographical areas…Islam is a territorial religion. Any space once gained is considered sacred and should belong to the umma for ever . Any lost space must be regained — even by force if necessary . Migrant Muslim communities in the West are constantly engaged in sacralising new areas…The other important principle is the classic Islamic division of the world into Dar al-Islam (the house of Islam), where Muslims rule, and Dar al-Harb (the house of war). The sinister name for non-Muslim territory indicates that Muslims have an obligation to wage war until it becomes Dar al-Islam…Unless the multiculturalist policy — which has been indirectly facilitating the separatist agenda of radical Islamists — is reversed immediately, we shall wake up and find we have sleepwalked into a situation of apartheid and segregation”
(18Nov05) I have often mentioned the Bat Ye'or book Eurabia . This summation by Andrew Bostom brings into sharp focus why Europe finds itself as the boiling frog of our time. The dilemma Europe is now dealing with, is all their own work. It's hard to work up any sympathy for them. Will we make the same mistake?
“…Eurabia, as Bat Ye'or has demonstrated, now represents a geo-political reality, envisioned in 1973 of informal alliances between the countries of the Arab League and the nine countries of the European Community …Various alliances and agreements were elaborated at the top political level of each European Community country with the representative of the European Commission, and their Arab counterparts within the Arab League. ….Eurabia involves not only an intricate web of agreements covering a remarkably broad range; it is essentially a political project for the total demographic and cultural symbiosis between Europe and the Arab Muslim world ….Respective European and Arab goals for the Eurabian project, are summarized by Bat Ye'or…” Eurabia Defined by Andrew Bostom “… First, the European ambitions : to play a defining political role in international relations in competition with the United States…make the Mediterranean a Euro-Arab inland sea by encouraging massive Arab immigration into Europe, and favoring Muslim immigrants; create Euro-Arab populations by promoting multiculturalism with a strong Islamic presence in Europe; develop a powerful Islamo-Christian symbiosis against Israel, orienting Europe toward Islam, and liberating Christianity from Judaism, which is viewed by some anti-Semitic factions as the embodiment of evil… The Arab partners, in turn, demanded from Europe: European political independence from the United States, and separation of the trans-Atlantic allies; measures favorable to Arab immigration and dissemination of Arab and Islamic culture in Europe…Euro-Arab Dialogue Symposia conducted 20 to 25 years ago, i.e., in Venice (1977) and Hamburg (1983), included recommendations, that have been successfully implemented, accompanied by a deliberate, privileged influx of Arab and other Muslim immigrants , in enormous numbers … In the wake of the continuing French intifada, Bat Ye'or's analyses have profound implications for Western Europe - which may be incapable of altering its Eurabian trajectory; her research may be even more important for the United States if it wishes to avoid Europe's fate…Eurabia cannot change direction; it can only use deception to mask its emergence, its bias and its inevitable trajectory. Eurabia's destiny was sealed when it decided, willingly, to become a covert partner with the Arab global jihad against America and Israel …”
(11Nov05)“…The Muslims are indifferent to expenses incurred by the French state. France is part of the world; the world belongs to Allah, and to his Believers. That doctrine has remained immutable for 1400 years… Imam Bouziane, the one they keep trying to deport, had 16 children by two wives, all living on the French state: a representative Muslim man…." Douce France By Hugh Fitzgerald “…At a certain point, and despite everything that causes you not to see what is staring you in the face, you realize that something has gone irreparably wrong with your country, and you, and your children, are in danger of losing that country, down to every village and house… For the moment, you allow yourself to believe that something will come up. Most likely, all those Muslims will simply convert. I mean, they do that, don't they, quite easily I'm told. Of course, why didn't I think of it, that is exactly what will happen. The situation is always saved in time. Just like during the war. Nothing to worry about. Nothing”
(6Nov05) “…Bands of youths in balaclavas start by setting fire to parked cars, break shop windows with baseball bats, wreck public telephones and ransack cinemas, libraries and schools. When the police arrive on the scene, the rioters attack them with stones, knives and baseball bats… These scenes are not from the West Bank but from 20 French cities, mostly close to Paris , that have been plunged into a European version of the intifada that at the time of writing appears beyond control…” Why Paris Is Burning by Amir Taheri “…The French used to flatter themselves for the success of their policy of assimilation, which was supposed to turn immigrants from any background into "proper Frenchmen" within a generation at most…. France has also lost another powerful mechanism for assimilation: the obligatory military service abolished in the 1990s. As the number of immigrants and their descendants increases in a particular locality, more and more of its native French inhabitants leave for "calmer places," thus making assimilation still more difficult…. In some areas, it is possible for an immigrant or his descendants to spend a whole life without ever encountering the need to speak French, let alone familiarize himself with any aspect of the famous French culture…”
(6Nov05) “…It's not just Paris. Successive nights of riots have rocked parts of Århus, the second largest city in Denmark . Little to nothing has appeared in the English language press about the second front in the Eurabian intifada” MSM blackout on the intifada in Denmark "The MSM ( Main Stream Media) has done everything possible to minimize the Islamicist nature of the violence in Europe, and has blacked-out coverage of the Danish front.…”

“…The laxisme of the French criminal justice system is now notorious. Judges often make remarks indicating their sympathy for the criminals they are trying (based upon the usual generalizations about how society, not the criminal, is to blame)....Benevolence inflames the anger of the young men of the cités as much as repression, because their rage is inseparable from their being. Ambulance men who take away a young man injured in an incident routinely find themselves surrounded by the man's “friends,” and jostled, jeered at…” The Barbarians at the Gates of Paris by Theodore Dalrymple (2002) “…They are certainly not poor, at least by the standards of all previously existing societies: they are not hungry; they have cell phones, cars, and many other appurtenances of modernity; they are dressed fashionably—according to their own fashion—with a uniform disdain of bourgeois propriety and with gold chains round their necks…. They believe they have rights, and they know they will receive medical treatment, however they behave. They enjoy a far higher standard of living (or consumption) than they would in the countries of their parents' or grandparents' origin, even if they labored there 14 hours a day to the maximum of their capacity…”
(6Nov05)“…Riots have now continued for eight days in and around Paris. Thursday night, November 3, Muslim rioters burned 315 cars . In the previous week, they torched 177 vehicles and burned numerous businesses , a post office and two schools. How many European Muslims share the sentiments of Mohammed Bouyeri? (Murderer of Theo Van Gogh in Holland , November 2004) How many of these are rioting this week in Paris ?” Paris Burning by Robert Spencer “..Alleviating Muslim unemployment and poverty will not ultimately do anything to alter this rejection of European values by growing numbers of people who are only geographically Europeans. And the problem cannot be ignored….. The abject failure of the multiculturalist philosophy that disparate groups can coexist within a nation without any idea that they must share at least some basic values.

Spain's 3.5 million immigrants now represent 8 percent of the population , coming largely from Africa….Once immigrants are accepted into one nation, in this case Spain, they have the right to move anywhere within the EU… Simply put, the EU has weakened border controls in Europe at the same time as a population explosion in Muslim neighbor regions is threatening to spill over, potentially causing a succession of civil wars in Western European nations…”

I find it hard to believe that Muslims feel excluded from being forced to wear yellow stars on the chests. I find it hard to believe that Muslims feel excluded from being compelled from their homes and having their businesses destroyed by angry mobs. I find it hard to believe that Muslims feel excluded from being placed on trains that shipped them to Auschwitz, Birkenau and Dachau . I find it hard to believe that Muslims feel excluded from being systematically murdered by a dictator who believed in a pure Aryan race..” Why Do Muslim Leaders in Britain Wish to Diminish the Holocaust? By Aaron Goldstein “.. It must be remembered that Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Arab spiritual in British Mandated Palestine, went to Germany to meet with Adolf Hitler and express his support for his efforts to rid Europe of Jews in 1941….given that the Grand Mufti publicly supported Adolf Hitler during WWII and given that many Arab Muslim governments actively deny there ever was a Holocaust why would it then be a stretch for Muslim leaders in a Western country to behave in a similar manner?”
(18Sept05) In recent weeks Tony Blair was advised to abolish the annual Holocaust day in Britain as it was regarded as offensive to Muslims making them feel excluded and marginalized. Perhaps there is another reason, the real reason they wanted the day abolished ( click here ). It's about being an ally of Hitler and the Nazis , spiritual bothers in arms. Also it is worth noting that The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el-Husseini was the uncle of Yasser Arafat .
In case you have difficulty reading the script under the photo link it read as follows:
“ A photo of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem reviewing the Nazi “Handzar” Division SS in Yugoslavia 1944. In an address to the Muslim troops, the Mufti put Islam and Nazism on the same level, claiming there were considerable similarities between Islamic principles and National Socialism.”
(The David Pryce Jones book The Closed Circle (chapter 8) covers the links and connections between the Arab World and The Nazis in detail.)
(14Sept05) "Nearly one third of Germans under 30 say that the U.S. government ordered the 9/11 attacks. In France , a book insisting that Americans carried out the assault themselves to increase defense budgets becomes a huge bestseller… Unlike some forms of bigotry, anti-Americanism is most virulent among Europe 's elites. Everyday Germans and Brits and Italians tend to be more appreciative of American culture, economic achievement, and government than their political lords”. Europe Learns the Wrong Lessons by Karl Zinsmeister “..The tradition of a peasantry ruled by its "betters" endures in numerous ways. Many of these habits are actually being deepened by the European Union, where decision making is dominated by un-recallable mandarins serving appointments in Brussels, who regularly ram through laws that could never pass by popular referendum… An irresponsible preference for moral dudgeon over useful solutions is now a hallmark of European foreign affairs, argues Charles Krauthammer… Krauthammer's conclusion is that the European Left's "concern for human rights turns out to be nothing more than a useful weapon for its anti-Americanism…"
(13Sept05) “..The threat of the radical Islamists taking over Europe is every bit as great to the United States as was the threat of the Nazis taking over Europe in the 1940s….It is beginning to dawn on Europeans that the combination of a shrinking ethnic-European population and an expanding, culturally assertive Muslim population might lead to the fall of Western civilization in Europe within a century….(The European) instinct for survival has not been fully extinguished. But that survival instinct is threatened by the multiculturalism and political correctness advocated in media and academe -- and institutionalized in national and European Union laws and regulations for half a century.” An Islamist threat like the Nazis by Tony Blankley (The Washington Times). “..Just as the Nazis reached back to German mythology and the supposed Aryan origins of the German people, the radical Islamists reach back to the founding ideas and myths of their religious culture. And just like the Nazis, they claim to speak for authentic traditions while actually advancing expedient and radical innovations….If the current leaders of Europe do not respond to the Islamist threat boldly and effectively, the common European people might decide to defend their culture as vigilantes. In that case, Europe again will become a bloody urban battleground..”.

“…Nor is the idea of the Muslims as the outstanding threat to Western civilization entirely new. As early as 1984, Leon Uris explained that his purpose in writing The Haj , a novel, "was to warn the West and Western democracies that you can't keep your head in the sand about this situation any longer, that we have an enraged bull of a billion people on our planet, and tilted the wrong way they could open the second road to Armageddon The Muslims are coming! The Muslims are coming! By Daniel Pipes (November 1990 ) “Ideological enthusiasms like Marxism-Leninism will wax and wane, these writers are saying, but the Muslim adversary remains permanently in place…. All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most. Also, they appear most resistant to assimilation. Elements among the Pakistanis in Britain, Algerians in France, and Turks in Germany seek to turn the host country into an Islamic society by compelling it to adapt to their way of life…”
(26Aug05) “…The immigrants who began coming to Europe in the 1950s because European governments and businesses encouraged their mass migration, are profoundly alienated from European society for reasons that have little to do with the Middle East and everything to do with Europe .” The Dream of multiculturalism is over by David Rieff “…The European vision of multiculturalism, in all its simultaneous good will and self-congratulation, is no longer sustainable. And most Europeans know it. What they don't know is what to do next ….Figuring out how to prevent Europe's multicultural reality from becoming a war of all against all is the challenge that confronts the Continent. It makes all of Europe 's other problems seem trivial by comparison …”
(6Aug05)“…They despair of the metropolitan mix of gay rights and lager louts. And they despair of the liberal establishment's unwillingness to face the facts and fight the battle for manners and morals….The alienation felt by young blacks and Asians is not a result of any intolerance shown towards them, but of the endless tolerance of those who would allow everything and stand up for nothing. It is the excesses permitted by a culture spawned by the liberal Left that have produced a generation that feels rootless and hopeless.” Muslims are right about Britain By John Hayes in the Spectator . “.. .A sickening decadence has taken hold. People's sense of identity has been eroded as our traditions and the institutions that safeguard them have been derided for years. People's sense of history has been weakened by an education system that too often emphasises the themes in history rather than its chronology, and which indoctrinates a guilt-ridden interpretation of Britain 's contribution to the world….”

They would be happy and we would be happy.”
(30Jul05) “…It is a known fact, normal people perceive what they want to see, as well as what they are accustomed to seeing, and often do not register something incredibly obvious. This same predetermined blindness applies to how people acknowledge subjects, whether they are the environment, politics, gun control, nutrition or terrorism; they begin with a default assumption and proceed to an often-biased confirmation built on unfounded causal associations. Europe's Emerging Mujahideen by Peter B Martin . “ The majority of the public believes the Islamist terrorist must want something; his actions must be due to poverty, mistreatment or a sense of persecution and that we should be more understanding towards them. That misconception is being touted by the media today and has made its way even into governmental circles….Simply put, the ideological grounds on which al Qaeda is founded is so foreign to the average Christian layman's liberal way of thinking, it is no wonder we are having difficulty managing the course of a war against Islamic terrorism….”
(28Jul05)In this article British Opinion Surveys From an Islamist Hell in FrontPageMagazine.com Daniel Pipes Comments about “ many worrisome statistics”, of which “..two stand out. That less than three-quarters of Muslims in Britain indicate they would tell the police about an impending terrorist attack raises grave doubts about the Blair government's tactic of getting Muslims to police their own community. That one-third of Muslims do not accept British society and want to end it, presumably to pave the way for an Islamic order, casts comparable doubts on Britain's much-vaunted multicultural ideal.”

(8May05) France 's educational system appears headed towards meltdown. An article by Olivier Guitta in the May 9th Weekly Standard reports that a leaked study conducted between October 2003 and May 2004 under the auspices of France's inspector-general of education, Jean Pierre Obin, describes an educational system that is cracking under the strain of a growing, non-assimilating Muslim population. French Schools Lurch Towards Islamization from Moonbat.
Orbin found that Muslim students regularly boycott classes that concern Voltaire, Rousseau and Moliere, whom the students accuse of being anti-Islamic. The students also protest the Crusades and frequently deny the Holocaust. Orbin's report cites Muslim students' refusal to use the "plus" sign in mathematics because it looks like a crucifix; Muslims boycotting class trips to churches, cathedrals and monasteries; and forcing wholesale changes in school lunch fare to accommodate their religious and cultural practices.
(8May05) Is Swedish Democracy Collapsing?? “….The threats against Sweden should serve as a lesson to those who still claim that Islamic terrorism is caused by "Israeli aggression" or "American foreign policy".....It ( Sweden ) subsidizes Palestinian terror conferences at a time when anti-Jewish harassment by Muslims is so bad that Swedish Jews sign up for service in the IDF to escape.

“….Few areas in Sweden are worse hit by the current troubles than Malmö, the nation's third largest city.

It will be the first major Scandinavian city to enjoy this honor, although perhaps not the last..... In Husby, a Stockholm suburb, gangs of immigrant youngsters are harassing other visitors who come to use the swimming pool. A Swedish school class was attacked and robbed by a large group of teenage boys shouting "Swedish bastards! (Svennejävlar) You don't belong here!" The police in Husby are aware of the problem, but say it is an integration problem that the police can't solve alone….”

According to the report, between 70 and 80 per cent of Dutch-born immigrants, mostly from Morocco and Turkey , refuse to intermarry with native-born Dutch and are importing their spouses from their home countries. Ironically, it is the emphasis Dutch governments have placed on multiculturalism that has helped lead to its inevitable downfall.

"Sooner or later, the de facto mutual support society of progressives and Islamists had to collapse under the weight of its own contradictions. The progressives who have supported the claims of Islamists in the West have long chosen to disregard the saying that one cannot be so open minded as to let your brains fall out. Now reality forces them to wake up and, increasingly in Europe and now in Canada, realize that the Islamists' goals are incompatible with their own, and that excessive "tolerance" inevitably leads to intolerance." says Michael Radu in How Canadian Tolerance Became Intolerance - FrontPageMagazine.com -August 18, 2004
