Center for Security Policy, by John Cordero, Nov. 23, 2015:

After uncovering the Islamic State cell that planned and executed the Paris attacks, Belgian authorities have increased the manhunt for Salah Abdeslam, who is suspected of being one of the gunmen in Paris and whose brother blew himself up in a suicide operation there.  Brussels, the location of NATO and EU headquarters, is now a city under military lockdown.  Subways and schools remained closed on Monday, as the threat of a “Paris-style attack” keeps residents and police on edge.

Hiding in plain sight within the large Muslim community centered in the Molenbeek neighborhood, the IS cell that executed the Paris atrocity may have prepared for another wave targeting Brussels,  according to Belgian authorities.

In response, they have urged the closing of popular bars and clubs, while hotels locked their doors, as a large number of travelers cancelled their stays.

The military personnel and armored personnel carriers now patrolling the streets evoke images of a city under occupation, and although 16 arrests have been made in connection with the attacks, Abdeslam and his accomplices remain at large.

As previously noted, IS has increased its operational capabilities beyond the borders of its self-declared caliphate and affiliated “provinces.”  Whereas, historically terrorist organizations executed operations in order to draw media attention for the announcement of clear political objectives, IS transcends traditional western concepts of terrorism. Instead, it is a global jihadist organization, seeking to goad Western powers into an apocalyptic conflict.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s, organizations such as Hezbollah held hostages for years and carried out operations at the behest of Iran, a clear case of state-sponsored terrorism.  Nowadays, a self-declared religious state, with no international recognition and a self-sufficient financial structure, is able to hold entire cities hostage; cities that serve as headquarters for international military and political bodies are now at the mercy of jihadists who reject the Western concept of the nation-state.

In a propaganda masterstroke, the Islamic State has succeeded in achieving one of its key goals: “striking fear in the heart of the enemy.”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali: No More Unvetted Muslim Immigrants

ayaanhirsialiThe Daily Wire, by Robert Kraychik, Nov. 17, 2015:

Following last week’s Islamic terrorist attacking in Paris and the ongoing flood of Muslim refugees and migrants into Europe, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is calling on Europe to change its immigration policies and reinforce its border security.

In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Ali warned that if political leaders in Europe follow Merkel’s example of “making a virtue of the openness of their borders,” then right-wing populist movements will continue to grow. Given the threat of Islamic extremism, Ali says that Europe must revisit its treaties, laws, and policies in order to tighten its controls of the flow of people into and throughout the continent. She called for cultural and ideological screening of those wishing to make Europe their home.

Ali also called for a determined “war of ideas” against Islamists. European leaders, Ali said, must pursue the “infrastructure of indoctrination”: mosques, Muslim schools, and Islamic websites. Pretending that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam and Muslims, however, will prevent this from being possible. Given the multicultural ethos of Europe, this recommendation of Ali’s is all the more difficult to actualize. Multiculturalism discourages cultural integration of immigrants, contributing to ghettoization and Balkanization. It is also fused with cultural relativism, further obstructing the acculturation of immigrants by discouraging the promotion of Western values. If no culture is superior to any other, why should Europe preserve its own in light of cultural change brought in by the mass immigration of Muslims? Ali’s proposal to proselytize the values of Western Civilization is only possible in an environment which believes in the superiority of Western values over alternatives.

Ali heralded Israel’s counterterrorism systems as a model to be emulated by European security services. From Israel’s founding, it has dealt with the threat of Islamic terrorism. Nowadays, Ali says, such a mass casualty attack in Israel as was seen in Paris is unthinkable. Islamic terrorists in Israel, she continued, are now relegated to using knives and vehicles. “We should stop demonizing Israel. We should start learning from Israel,” said Ali.

Joining Megyn Kelly last night, Ali exposited on her article. She said that President Barack Obama’s rhetorical strategy of denying the overlap between Islamic terrorism, Islam, and Muslims is a “failure.” After acknowledging that a nuanced grasp of Islam and Muslims is necessary in order not to indict the entire religious group for acts of Islamic terrorists, Ali stated that radical Islam must still be seen as a subset of Islam. The attempt to excise Jihadism and completely separate it from Islam and Muslims makes it impossible to effectively combat it. “We should start by naming it,” said Ali. Ali rebuked the view that carefully crafted rhetoric denying the religious underpinnings of Islamic terrorism will pacify its perpetrators.

Ali warned that this is a long-term struggle, saying, “Islamic extremism is older than this election cycle, and the last one, and 9/11. It’s going to outlast this election cycle.”



paris-jihad-attackFrontpage, by Robert Spencer, Nov. 14, 2015:

That didn’t take long: one of the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadis who murdered at least 160 people in Paris on Friday held a Syrian passport and passed through Greece in October. In October, he was a “refugee” seeking asylum in Europe from the Syrian war zone; in November, he was murdering French civilians for the Islamic caliphate. The Migrant Jihad has begun.

French and European authorities can’t say they weren’t warned. Last February, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister recently said that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have recently come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.

So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.”

A year before that the Islamic State issued a call for jihad murders of French civilians: “If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.”

Then after the attacks the Islamic State issued a statement claiming responsibility for them, and warning: “Let France and all nations following its path know that they will continue to be at the top of the target list for the Islamic State and that the scent of death will not leave their nostrils as long as they partake in the crusader campaign, as long as they dare to curse our Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him), and as long as they boast about their war against Islam in France and their strikes against Muslims in the land of the Caliphate with their jets, which were of no avail to them in the filthy streets and alleys of Paris. Indeed, this is just the beginning. It is also a warning for any who wish to take heed.”

So war was declared, and acts of war carried out – and the response has been drearily predictable. German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere was swift to try to dissociate the Paris attacks from the migrant influx into Europe: “I would like to make this urgent plea to avoid drawing such swift links to the situation surrounding refugees.” Alas for de Maiziere, there was the inconvenient fact of that Syrian “refugee” who pass through Greece on his way to jihad in Paris.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama was true to form, not mentioning Islam or Muslims in his statement on the Paris attacks, and not giving a hint that it was his precipitous and politically motivated withdrawal from Iraq that created the vacuum that allowed for the rise of the Islamic State. Indeed, the Islamic State could end up being the most significant legacy of the Obama Administration. Obviously American troops couldn’t have stayed in Iraq forever, and the Iraq project from its beginnings was based on false assumptions about Islam, ignoring its political, supremacist and violent aspects; but Obama’s hasty and ill-thought out withdrawal took into account none of the realities on the ground: the Sunni/Shi’ite divide, the Iranian influence in Baghdad, the Sunnis’ unwillingness to participate in the Baghdad government and the Shi’ites’ refusal to allow them to do so in any significant way, and more. France today is paying the price for the willful ignorance and short-sightedness of Obama and his administration.

The Leftist media is firmly stuck in willful ignorance mode as well. Salon published a piece entitled, “Our terrorism double standard: After Paris, let’s stop blaming Muslims and take a hard look at ourselves,” and another entitled, “And so the hate speech begins: Let Paris be the end of the right’s violent language toward activists.” The Guardian worried that after the Paris jihad murders Friday, “far-right groups may well fuel more hatred.” Neither Salon nor the Guardian, nor any other mainstream media outlet, published any realistic assessment of the advancing jihad threat in France and the West in general.

And so as the Western intelligentsia fell into familiar patterns of response, it only ensured that there would be many, many more attacks, in Europe and the U.S., like the one in Paris Friday. It seems as if no amount of disconfirming evidence will move the establishment Left to remove its blinkers, discard its politically correct fantasies, and face the jihad threat realistically. The Leftists in the corridors of power are today ensuring that there will be much, much more bloodshed.

The Final Solution to the European Problem

Gates of Vienna, by Baron Bodissey, Nov. 10, 2015:

The following video is a compilation of footage related to the European “migration” crisis taken in the last five or six years. I’ve seen most of these clips before, and Vlad and I have done our own subtitled versions of some of them. The person who put the video together recommends that viewers download it and mirror it, because it probably won’t stay up on YouTube for very long.

Yes, I know it’s got a section with Nick Griffin ranting on about Zionists and banks and whatnot. But not counting that, it’s a pretty good collage of what’s been going on:


The Glazov Gang-Sweden: On the Verge of Collapse:

Patriarch of Antioch: Muslims Want to Conquer Europe with ‘Faith and the Birthrate’



Breitbart, by Thomas D. Williams, Nov. 6, 2015:

In a stunning interview, the Maronite patriarch of Antioch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, has contended that Islam has a clear, two-pronged strategy to take over Europe: religion and procreation.

The cardinal said that Muslims look on Christians as weak and believe that since they have no children and barely practice their faith, Islam will easily conquer them. Sadly, he said, Muslims take their faith more seriously than most Christians, and they are gaining ground because of it.

“I have often heard from Muslims that their goal is to conquer Europe with two weapons: their faith and their birthrate,” al-Rahi said in a recent interview with Famiglia Cristiana, an Italian Catholic weekly magazine.

For the Muslims, the Cardinal said, “the practice of the faith is essential and fundamental. In Saudi Arabia they go to Friday prayers even if they need a walking stick. They know the Koran by heart, and when they talk they often cite it. The same is not true for Christians who do not refer either to the Bible or the teachings of the Church.”

The Muslims “believe that God’s will is to procreate and that marriage is aimed at this,” he said. “They think that numbers will give them the upper hand.”

Christians, however, “hardly get married anymore, and have few children,” he said.

The Cardinal also said that Muslims “identify anything that comes from the West as Christian per se. All Western politics is Christian politics, it is a new crusade. They say that Christians are the remains of the Crusades and of Western imperialism,” he said.

At the same time, al-Rahi sharply criticized the EU’s ineffective solutions to Europe’s migration crisis, arguing that the only way to end the chaos is by stopping the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The 75-year-old cardinal is the Maronite Patriarch of the ancient city of Antioch, where Christianity has deep and millennial roots. He said that the ongoing conflict provoked by the Islamic State is forcing both Christians and moderate Muslims to emigrate from the Holy Land, so before all else, attention must be given to putting an end to the siege.

It is useless for Europe to quarrel over the reception of refugees without addressing the root cause of emigration from the Middle East, which is armed conflict, he said.

“The first thing to do to protect Christians in the Middle East is to end the war in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Palestine,” the Cardinal said. “European states quarrel with each other about the number of refugees to be admitted but do nothing to end the conflict.”

“The Middle East is emptying and leaving the field open to fundamentalist and terrorist organizations,” al-Rahi said. For some reason, he said, “States do not talk about it, the only one making appeals is Pope Francis.”

“Europe is talking about the reception of refugees, those who would like ten thousand and another who will take three thousand people, but this does not help us,” he said. “Europe should focus on the cause of migration, namely the war. You have to turn off the tap and ensure that Muslims and Christians will return to their lands.”

“A Middle East without Christians,” the Cardinal continued, “has no identity.”

“This is the place of all divine revelation. It is where Jesus took flesh, died and rose again. It is where the Church was born and began to proclaim the Gospel to the world,” he said.

Al-Rahi also noted that Christians resent being called a “minority” in the Middle East. We have been here for two thousand years, he said, “six hundred years before the arrival of Islam.”

“Just as Europe discusses how to preserve its identity, it is urgent that we do the same,” he said.

Andrew Bostom on Iranian Nuke Deal Fiasco and Muslim Hijra Jihad Invasion of Europe/Eurabia

By Andrew Bostom, Nov. 3, 2015:

Friday October 30th I had an informative ~25-minute discussion (embedded below) with Janet Mefferd regarding the disastrous Iranian nuke deal (see here;here; here; and here) ramifications, and the equally dire Muslim jihad hijra invasion of Europe, the latter being a fulfillment of yet another dystopian Western European totalitarian ideology, i.e., Eurabia (see here; here; and here).

Record 60 Million People Now Displaced Globally

Breitbart, by William Bigelow, Nov. 1, 2015:

Across the world, 60 million people have been displaced from their homes, more than any time in recorded history, according to The New York Times.

The list of countries from which the emigrants leave is extensive, including Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo , Eritrea, Gambia, Haiti, Iraq, Senegal, Syria, and many other countries in sub-Saharan and North Africa.

Between six million and eight million people are displaced in Syria; four million more Syrians now live in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Over 100,000 Afghanis are expected to flee their country this year; the Yazidis of Iraq have no home since ISIS invaded their territories; the Assyrian, Nestorian and Chaldean Christians from northern Iraq have also been forced from their homes. Two million Iraqi refugees have left their country.

Despite the mass exodus to Europe, some Europeans are sanguine about the prospect; Alexander Betts, who heads the Refugee Studies Center at Oxford University, said, “We need to keep our perspective on the numbers. If Lebanon can host one million Syrians, despite being the size of Maryland, a region the size of Europe should be able to host millions.”

The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia rebuffed a 120,000-migrant per nation resettlement quota, but then the Stefan Batory Foundation, an independent private Polish foundation established in 1988 by George Soros and some former Polish democratic opposition leaders, issued a letter signed by many European luminaries stating that Europe should not make resettlement difficult for the migrants, asserting, “In the name of our humanity, our principles and values, we call upon the authorities and people of our region to demonstrate practical solidarity towards refugees so that they may find safe haven in our midst and enjoy freedom to choose their own future.”

Former German foreign minister Joschka Fischer expressed skepticism over a European attempt to accept the refugees en masse, writing:

Throughout Europe, xenophobia and open racism are running rampant, and nationalist, even far-right parties are gaining ground. At the same time, this is only the beginning of the crisis, because the conditions inciting people to flee their homelands will only worsen. And the E.U., many of whose members have the world’s largest and best-equipped welfare systems, appears to be overwhelmed by it — politically, morally and administratively.

In September, a Syrian ISIS operative claimed more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen hidden among refugees had been smuggled into western nations.

Sonja Licht of the International Center for Democratic Transition warned, “I don’t think this wave can stop. It can maybe from time to time be somewhat less intensive, we simply have to prepare. The global north must be prepared that the global south is on the move, the entire global south. This is not just a problem for Europe but for the whole world.”

Facebook, Sky Pay Jizya to Migrants for Every “Hate” Post, BILD Publishes Lists of “Hate” Posters

Mirants crossing to SloveniaBreitbart, by Pamela Geller, Oct. 31, 2915:

There is a new initiative in Germany that donates one euro for every “racist” (Islam is not a race) anti-migrant comment on the Internet. The “Hate Helps” propaganda campaign is organized by an NGO called Demokratische Kultur (ZDK), otherwise known as the Orwellian “Center for Democratic Action” in Germany. And it’s being funded by Facebook and Sky Germany. They will pay 1€ (euro) for each negative post about immigrants.

Sky Germany is not the same entity as Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News, although Rupert’s son, James Murdoch, is chairman of its supervisory board. Sky Germany mainly broadcasts soccer games and other sports – but even it is jumping into the political realm and bowing down to the new propaganda initiative.

This is essentially a payment of the jizya, the tribute money that subservient and subjugated non-Muslims must pay to their Muslim overlords under Islamic law. In this case, the money goes to various refugee help programs and — get this — an organization that helps people get out of the “nazi scene” (an opt-out scheme).

Meanwhile, the German yellow press newspaper Bild is publishing the names of offenders in the media. Perhaps the thousands of Muslim migrants who have gone AWOL from the refugee camps can hunt them down.

Apparently the spineless, gutless Mark Zuckerberg made good on his promise to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Merkel had been prodding and strong-arming Zuckerberg to “do something” about the posts and comments on Facebook that oppose the Muslim invasion of Europe. Attending a luncheon on the sidelines of a United Nations development summit in New York several weeks ago, Merkel and Zuckerberg wereoverheard on a live transmission broadcast on the UN website as participants took their seats.

After Merkel confronted Zuckerberg about anti-migrant posts, the Facebook CEO is heard responding that “we need to do some work” on the issue. This is so typical of the elites. They control policy, they control the media, they control the culture — but they can’t control the people. And this makes them crazy. If they could, they would change the people.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that a team of reporters went to the European headquarters of Facebook in Dublin, wanting Facebook to explain why so many “hate posts” were not deleted. In fact, Facebook officials have been sued in Germany because in the opinion of some, Facebook did not do enough against “hate speech.” Now Facebook is trying to improve its public image in Germany by working with the “Hate Helps” campaign.

The whole idea is to intimidate people from telling the truth and speaking ill of the invasion. Who decides what’s hate? “Hate speech” is a subjective category. There is no agreed-upon type of speech that everyone recognizes as “hate speech.” The label “hate speech” is used by certain parties in order to demonize and marginalize the speech of their opponents. The label “hate speech” can all too easily become a tool in the hands of the powerful, of tyrants, to silence those who are standing for freedom.

A couple of days ago, there was a huge controversy about Bild. They took screenshots of what they claimed were hate posts, along with the picture and name from Facebook, and published them. Like a pillory.

They are putting the people’s backs up against the wall and taking down any rational voice that speaks against this tyranny. It’s a recipe for civil war.

They published a list with the “top 10” of “hate posters.” And they meant to publish a list of the worst offenders.

It’s a threat — a warning — letting people know if they say anything against the invasion they will put a target on their heads. The response by freedom-loving peoples should be millions more posts, more tweets. Subscribe to my website, Share my articles. Overrun the media with the facts. Fight back, print pamphlets, leave them everywhere — build an army of Davids.

Because even with this “initiative,” “hate posts” remain. How many posts are Facebook employees having to deal with? Can’t they keep up? Facebook won’t divulge numbers, but people have lost their jobs as a result of negative “racist” posts, so where is this going?

This is Hitlerian. Pure evil.


Pamela Geller has been covering the migrant crisis like no other:

Immigration jihad, or hijrah, is the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him to Medina, in the year 622 CE. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a preacher of religious ideas, but a political and military leader. That was what occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation,” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not fully itself without a political and military component. – Pamela Geller

Steyn on Europe
October 28, 2015

Re the accelerating Islamization of Europe, Bob Belvedere over at the Camp of the Saints has an interesting aside:

People like the Koch Brothers should really be forming paramilitary units for the purposes of rescuing what European Treasures they can, such as the aforementioned Throne [of Charlemagne], the Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s David and Pieta, Magna Carta, etc.

Put Magna Carta to one side for the moment, since the document is a mere souvenir of the idea, and it’s the idea that matters, which is why some of us are still writing books on the subject (personally autographed copies exclusively available from the SteynOnline bookstore).

But the notion of commando teams rescuing what’s left of western art from the Eurabian night struck me a year or so back as I was watching a rather undernourished George Clooney flick, The Monuments Men, about art experts rescuing great paintings marooned behind enemy lines during World War Two. In the first chapter of his very prescient book The West’s Last Chance, written before the Mohammed cartoon eruptions, the late Tony Blankley contemplates a European future in which firebreathing imams incite art wars on whatever’s to hand – Michelangelo’s “Little David” gets blown up in Florence, Albrecht Dürer’s Adam and Eve are attacked with acid, a car bomb explodes outside the Rodin museum… More and more of the surviving works are carted off to “secure” storage facilities, never to be seen in public again.

Meanwhile, back in the real world:

Islamic State militants have killed three captives in Syria’s ancient city of Palmyra by tying them to columns and blowing them up, activists say.

The identities of those reportedly killed on Sunday have yet to be given.

But they are thought to be the first to have been killed in that way since the jihadist group seized the ruins in May.

IS has destroyed two 2,000-year-old temples, an arch and funerary towers at Palmyra, one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world.

The group believes that such structures are idolatrous. The UN cultural agency, Unesco, has condemned the destruction as a war crime.

Given the number of actual flesh-and-blood people being slaughtered by ISIS, some folks say they can’t see the point of complaining about the destruction of architectural and artistic treasures. But there is method to the Islamic State’s madness. As part of its cultural totalitarianism, Islam has a long track record, wherever it sets foot, of obliterating the pre-Islamic past. Why? To ensure there’s nothing to go back to. There can be no return to greatness, because there is no longer any record of that greatness – only a void that Mohammed filled. In the past, there is desert. In the present, there is only Islam. And so, in the future, for want of any alternative, there can only be Islam.

~In September and October, under Chancellor Merkel’s Islamic blitzkrieg, a third of a million “migrants” (officially) entered the German state of Bavaria, home of the aforementioned Albrecht Dürer and much else those “migrants” will not care for. Aside from anything else, Bavaria’s Christian Social Union and Frau Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union will have to change their names pretty quickly – because, in a Germany where ten per cent of the electorate is Muslim, a party with the word “Christian” in its name will lose every election.

The good news is that, in a present-tense Eutopia severed from its own past, everyone is seventeen years old:

PASSAU, Germany — Newly arrived migrants were lining up at the train station in this border town for their first registration one recent evening. In a group of young Afghans traveling on their own, Matin, from Kabul, said he was 17 years old.

A police officer laughed. “Yes, you and all your friends are 17,” he said. “You know how often I hear that every day?”

One of the hardest challenges in processing unaccompanied teenage migrants is to determine whether they are still minors. Their legal situation changes radically on their 18th birthday.

Migrants under 18 are considered “children first and refugees second,” giving them the same rights as German children, said Johanna Karpenstein of B-UMF, a Berlin-based charity focused on unaccompanied minor refugees across Germany.

As the aging child star in Gypsy says when asked how old she is:

BABY JUNE: Nine, going on ten.

CRATCHITT: How long has that been going on?

Likewise, hundreds of thousands of tall, butch Muslim men flooding across the Austrian border into Bavaria are eternally seventeen going on eighteen, like refugees from the world’s biggest Sound of Musicaudition. And the-ey’ll take ca-are of you, as Frau Merkel has promised.

If you’re wondering how many 17-year-olds Syria could possibly have, what are you? Culturally insensitive or something?

If a migrant is deemed over 18, he or she has four weeks to appeal. A medical examination may follow to settle the dispute. Mohammed Jouni of the charity Youth Without Borders — himself a refugee and now a medical student — said that for young Arab or Afghan boys who had never been naked in front of anyone, these examinations could be distressing.

And so, in order to reverse the deathbed demography I wrote about in America Alone, the childless Angela Merkel has adopted every young male in the Muslim world, and overnight Germany’s median age has, magically, fallen to …seventeen.

How the Mohammed retirement plan will kill Europe.

European leaders talk about two things these days; preserving European values by taking in Muslim migrants and integrating Muslim migrants into Europe by getting them to adopt European values.

It does not occur to them that their plan to save European values depends on killing European values.

The same European values that require Sweden, a country of less than 10 million, to take in 180,000 Muslim migrants in one year also expects the new “Swedes” to celebrate tolerance, feminism and gay marriage. Instead European values have filled the cities of Europe with Shariah patrols, unemployed angry men waving ISIS flags and the occasional public act of terror.

European countries that refuse to invest money in border security instead find themselves forced to invest money into counterterrorism forces. And those are bad for European values too.

But, as Central European countries are discovering, European values don’t have much to do with the preservation of viable functioning European states. Instead they are about the sort of static Socialism that Bernie Sanders admires from abroad. But even a Socialist welfare state requires people to work for a living. Maine’s generous welfare policies began collapsing once Somali Muslims swarmed in to take advantage of them. Denmark and the Dutch, among other of Bernie Sanders’ role models, have been sounding more like Reagan and less like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Two years ago, the Dutch King declared that, “The classic welfare state of the second half of the 20th century in these areas in particular brought forth arrangements that are unsustainable in their current form.” That same year, the Danish Finance Minister called for the “modernization of the welfare state.”

But the problem isn’t one of modernization, it’s medievalization.

27% of Moroccans and 21% of Turks in the Netherlands are unemployed. It’s 27% in Denmark for Iraqis. And even when employed, their average income is well below the European average.

Critics pointed out in the past that a multicultural America can’t afford the welfare states that European countries have. Now that those same countries are turning multicultural, they can’t afford them either.

Europe invested in the values of its welfare state. The Muslim world invested in large families. Europe expects the Muslim world to bail out its shrinking birth rate by working and paying into the system so that its aging population can retire. The Muslim migrants however expect Europe to subsidize their large families with its welfare state while they deal some drugs and chop off some heads on the side.

Once again, European values are in conflict with European survival.

The European values that require Europe to commit suicide are about ideology, not language, culture or nationhood. But the incoming migrants don’t share that ideology. They have their own Islamic values.

Why should 23-year-old Mohammed work for four decades so that Hans or Fritz across the way can retire at 61 and lie on a beach in Mallorca? The idea that Mohammed would ever want to do such a thing out of love for Europe was a silly fantasy that European governments fed their worried citizens.

Mohammed doesn’t share European values. Nor are they likely to take hold of him no matter how often the aging teachers, who hope he gets a job and subsidizes their retirement, try to drill them into his head. Europeans expect Mohammed to become a Swede or a German as if he were some child they had adopted from an exotic country and raised as their own, and work to subsidize their European values.

The Muslim migrants are meant to be the retirement plan for an aging Europe. They’re supposed to keep its ramshackle collection of economic policies, its welfare states and social programs rolling along.

But they’re more like a final solution.

Mohammed is Fritz’s retirement plan. But Mohammed has a very different type of plan. Fritz is counting on Mohammed to work while he relaxes. Mohammed relaxes and expects Fritz to work.  Fritz is not related to him and therefore Mohammed sees no reason why he should work to support him.

European social democracy reduces society to a giant insurance plan in which money is pooled together.  But insurance is forbidden in Islam which considers it to be gambling. European social democracy expects him to bail it out, but to Mohammed, European values are a crime against Islam.

Mohammed’s Imam will tell him to work off the books because paying into the system is gambling. However taking money out of the system is just Jizya; the money non-Muslims are obligated to pay to Muslims. Under Islamic law, it’s better for Mohammed to sell drugs than to pay taxes.

That’s why drug dealing and petty crime are such popular occupations for Salafis in Europe. It’s preferable to steal from infidels than to participate in the great gamble of the European welfare state.

Mohammed isn’t staking his future on the shaky pensions of European socialism. He invests in what social scientists call social capital. He plans his retirement by having a dozen kids. If this lifestyle is subsidized by infidel social services, so much the better. And when social services collapse, those of his kids who aren’t in prison or in ISIS will be there to look after him in his golden years.

As retirement plans go, it’s older and better than the European model.

Mohammed doesn’t worry much about the future. Even if he doesn’t make it past six kids, by the time he’s ready to retire the European country he’s living in will probably be an Islamic State. And he is confident that whatever its arrangements are, they will be better and more just than the infidel system.

Sweden will take in 180,000 migrants this year. Germany may take in 1.5 million. Most of them will be young men following the Mohammed retirement plan.


Europeans are being assured that the Mohammeds will balance out the demographic disparity of an aging population with too many retirees and too few younger workers. But instead the Mohammeds will put even more pressure on the younger workers who not only have to subsidize their elders, but millions of Mohammeds, their multiple brides and their fourteen child Islamic retirement plans.

Retirement ages will go further up and social services for the elderly will be cut. The welfare state will collapse, but it will have to be kept running because the alternative will be major social unrest.

Among the triggers of the Arab Spring were rising wheat prices and cuts to food subsidies. Prices went up and governments fell as street riots turned into civil wars. Imagine a Sweden where 50 percent of the young male population is Muslim, mostly unemployed, turning into Syria when the economy collapses and the bill comes due. Imagine European Muslim street riots where the gangs have heavy artillery and each ghetto Caliph has his own Imams and Fatwas to back up his claims.

Europe is slowly killing itself in the name of European values. It’s trying to protect its economic setup by bankrupting it. European values have become a suicide pact. Its politicians deliver speeches explaining why European values require mass Muslim migration that make as little sense as a lunatic’s suicide note.

Islamic values are not compatible with European values. Not only free speech and religious freedom, but even the European welfare state is un-Islamic. Muslims have a high birth rate because their approach to the future is fundamentally different than the European one. Europeans have chosen to have few children and many government agencies to take care of them. Muslims choose to have many children and few government agencies. The European values so admired by American leftists have no future.

Europe is drinking rat poison to cure a cold. Instead of changing its values, it’s trying to maintain them by killing itself. The Mohammed retirement plan won’t save European Socialism. It will bury it.

Muslim Invasion of Europe

Europe immigrantsGatestone Institute, by Guy Millière, October 22, 2015:

  • The Syrian government sells passports and birth certificates at affordable prices. Many migrants have no passport, no ID, and refuse to give fingerprints.
  • Because Islam is the heart of the culture of people formerly colonized, Europeans rejected criticism of Islam, saying it would blend smoothly into a multicultural Europe. They did not demand the assimilation of the Muslims who came to live in Europe. Much of the time, Muslims are not assimilated — and often show signs of not wanting to assimilate.
  • Any criticism of Islam in Europe is treated as a form of racism, and “Islamophobia” is considered a crime or a sign of mental illness.
  • European people still have the right to vote, but are deprived of most of their power: all important political decisions in Europe are made behind closed doors by technocrats and professional politicians in Brussels or Strasbourg.
  • Europe has renounced force, so to many, it appears weak, vulnerable and easily able to be overpowered.
  • The sudden arrival of hundreds of thousands more Muslims most likely prompts Europeans to think that the nightmare will get worse; they see, powerlessly, that their leaders speak and act as if they have no awareness of what is happening.
  • Central European leaders and people, who have already lived under authoritarian rule, seem to be thinking that entering the European Union was a huge mistake. They came to what was then called the “free world.” They do not seem willing to be subjected again to coercive decisions made by outsiders.
  • Illegal Muslim migrants will live on social benefits until the bankruptcy of welfare states.
  • In all 28 countries of the European Union, birth rates are low and the population is aging. People under thirty account for only 16% of the population, or 80 million people. In the 22 Arab countries, plus Turkey and Iran, people under thirty account for 70% of the population, or 350 million people.

The flow of illegal migrants does not stop. They land on the Greek islands along the Turkish coast. They still try to get into Hungary, despite a razor wire fence and mobilized army. Their destination is Germany or Scandinavia, sometimes France or the UK. Some of them still arrive from Libya. Since the beginning of January, more than 620,000 have arrived by sea alone. There will undoubtedly be many more: a leaked secret document estimates that by the end of December, there might be 1.5 million.

Journalists in Western Europe continue to depict them as “refugees” fleeing war in Syria. The description is false. According to statistics released by the European Union, only twenty-five percent of them come from Syria; the true number is probably lower. The Syrian government sells passports and birth certificates at affordable prices. The vast majority of migrants come from other countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Eritrea, Somalia, and Nigeria.

Many do not seem to have left in a hurry. Many bring new high-end smartphones and large sums of cash, ten or twenty thousand euros, sometimes more. Many have no passports, no ID, and refuse to give fingerprints.

Whenever people flee to survive, the men come with whole families: women, children, elders. Here, instead, more than 75% of those who arrive are men under 50; few are women, children or elders.

As Christians are now the main targets of Islamists (the Jews fled or were forced out decades ago), the people escaping the war in Syria should be largely composed of Christians. But Christians are a small minority among those who arrive, and they often hide that they are Christians.

Those who enter Europe are almost all Muslims, and behave as some Muslims often do in the Muslim world: they harass Christians and attack women. In reception centers, harassing Christians and attacking women are workaday incidents. European women and girls who live near reception centers are advised to take care and cover up. Rapes, assaults, stabbings and other crimes are on the rise.

Western European political leaders could tell the truth and act accordingly. They do not. They talk of “solidarity,” “humanitarian duty,” “compassion.” From the beginning, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany said that illegal migrants were welcome: she seemed to change her mind for a moment, but quickly slid back. In France, President François Hollande says the same things as Angela Merkel.

After the heartbreaking image of a dead child being carried on a Turkish beach was published, thousands of Germans and French initially spoke the same way as their leaders. Their enthusiasm seems to have faded fast.

The people of Central Europe were not enthusiastic from the beginning. Their leaders seem to share the feelings of their populations. None spoke as explicitly as Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary. He said out loud what many of his countrymen seemed to think. He spoke of “invasion” and asked if there were another word to describe the massive and often brutal entry into a country of people who have not been invited to do so. He added that a country has the right to decide who is allowed to enter its territory and to guard its borders. He stressed that those who enter Europe are from a “different culture,” and suggested that Islam might not be compatible with European Judeo-Christian values.

Western European political leaders harshly condemned his remarks and the attitude of Central Europe in general. They decided to take a hard line approach, including: forcing recalcitrant countries to welcome immigrants, setting up mandatory quotas that define how many immigrants each EU country must receive, and threatening those countries that declined to obey. Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, said that Europe was built in a spirit of “burden sharing,” and that EU breakup was a risk that could not be excluded.

An acute division, in fact, is emerging between the leaders of Western Europe and the leaders of Central Europe. Another division is growing between the populations of Western Europe and their leaders.

Those who rebuilt Europe after World War II thought that an enlightened elite (themselves) could make a clean sweep of the past and build a dream society where peace and perpetual harmony would reign.

Because they thought democracy had brought Hitler to power, they decided to restrict democracy.[1] Because they thought nationalism was the cause of the war, they decreed that nationalism was harmful and that the cultural identities in Europe had to disappear and be replaced by a new “European identity” that they would shape.[2]

Because Europe had a colonialist past and Europeans had believed in the superiority of their cultures, they claimed that Europe should redeem its guilt and affirm that all cultures were equal. And because Islam was at the heart of the culture of people formerly colonized, the Europeans rejected all criticism of Islam, and said that it would blend smoothly into a multicultural Europe. They did not demand the assimilation of Muslims who came to live in Europe in increasing number.

Because the Europeans thought poverty had led to the rise of Nazism, they built welfare states that were supposed to eliminate poverty forever.

Because two world wars had started in Europe, the Europeans decreed that from now on, Europe would renounce the use of force, and solve all conflicts through diplomacy and appeasement.[3]

We now see the results.

European people still have the right to vote, but are deprived of most of their power: all important political decisions in Europe are made behind closed doors, by technocrats and professional politicians, in Brussels or Strasbourg.

Cultural identities in Europe have been eroded to such a point that saying that Europe is based on Judeo-Christian values has become controversial.

Any criticism of Islam in Europe is treated as a form of racism, and “Islamophobia” is considered a crime or a sign of mental illness.

Islam has not melted into a smooth multiculturalism; it is creating increasingly distressing problems that are almost never brought to light.

Muslim criminality across Europe is high. Consequently, the percentage of Muslims in prisons in Europe is high. In France, which has the largest Muslim population in Europe, the prison population is 70% Muslim. Many European prisons have become recruitment centers for future jihadis.

Muslim riots may occur for any reason : police upholding the law, a Soccer League celebration or in support of a cause.

Welfare states have created a government-dependent class in Europe of many people who live permanently on social benefits. These people are often Muslim. Much of the time, they are not assimilated – and often show signs of not wanting to assimilate. Many reside in virtually autonomous, so-called no-go zones (e.g. France, the UK, and Germany).

Europe has renounced force; to many, it therefore appears weak, vulnerable and easily able to be overpowered.

Populations of Western Europe increasingly think that the dream society that had been promised has turned into a nightmare. The sudden and often brutal arrival of hundreds of thousands more Muslims most likely prompts Europeans to think the nightmare will get worse. They see, powerlessly, that their leaders speak and act as if they have no awareness of what is happening.

Central European leaders and their people, who have directly experienced authoritarian rule, seem to be thinking that entering the European Union was a huge mistake. When the Soviet Union collapsed, they became members of the EU to join what was called then the “free world.” They do not seem willing to be subjected again to coercive decisions made by outsiders.

After living under the Soviet yoke, they preserved their desire for freedom and self-government, and evidently will not now agree to give them up. They know what submission to Islam could mean. Bulgaria and Romania were occupied by the Ottoman Empire until 1878. Hungary was under the boot of Ottoman rule for more than a hundred and fifty years (1541-1699).

Polls show that a majority of Muslims living in Europe want the application of sharia law and clearly reject any idea of assimilation.

Hundreds of thousands of Muslims living in Europe have joined fundamentalist Islamic organizations. Thousands have joined jihadist movements and are now fighting in Syria or Yemen. Many have returned and are ready to act against Europe.

Illegal Muslim migrants are likely to join the Muslims already living in Europe; and they will remain Muslim. They will live on social benefits until the bankruptcy of welfare states. They will reside in the “no-go zones,” and the “no-go zones” will continue to grow. Their occupants come from countries where Christians and women are mistreated; in Europe, they are already mistreating Christians and women.

They come from countries where Western civilization is despised and where hatred of Jews is inescapable — and this remains so among Muslims already living in Europe. For more than two decades, almost all assaults against Jews in Europe were committed by Muslims.

Many of those who arrive, according to European intelligence sources, are already radicalized.

A project to overwhelm Europe by a huge wave of migration was already described by the Islamic State in documents discovered this February. It is hard to rule out that the Islamic State plays a role in what is happening. Turkish authorities are ignoring the massive departures taking place from their coast. If they really wanted the current process to stop, they could stop it. That is clearly not what they do. The Islamic State could not survive without Turkish help. Daily flights on Turkish Airlines bring illegal migrants to Istanbul; they continue unhindered to Europe. The Russians, in their military intervention in Syria, similarly does not seem interested in stopping what is occurring.

Angela Merkel said in Strasbourg, on October 7, that migrants entering Europe today are attracted to Europe, for the reasons Europeans migrants who arrived in America a century ago were attracted to America: to “realize a dream,” presumably of opportunity.

In all 28 countries of the European Union, birth rates are low and the population is aging. People under thirty account for only 16% of the population, or 80 million people. In the 22 Arab countries, plus Turkey and Iran, people under thirty account for 70% of the population, or 350 million people.

Jews are fleeing Europe in increasing numbers. “Native” Europeans are starting to flee as well.

In 1972, in his book “The Camp of the Saints,” French writer Jean Raspail described flooding Europe with Muslim migrants crossing the Mediterranean. At the time, the book was a work of fiction. Today, it is reality.

Islam and the Fall of Europe

American Thinker, by Jerrold L. Sobel, Oct. 20, 2015:

A duality, Islam is first and foremost a political movement ensconced in a religion from which it expresses its imperialist nature through a multi faceted concept known as jihad.  Christian Europe today, among other factors to be discussed later, lacking cognizance of Islam’s millennial ploy of hegemonic control via emigration, is saddled with a demographic birthrate inverse to that of their new emigres.  Europe is in the throes of Islamization. Writes author Bat’Ye’or in her critically acclaimed work: Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis.

“The ideology, strategy, and tactics of Jihad has constituted throughout history a fundamental part of Islamic Jurisprudence and literature, since it is through jihad that the Islamic community developed and expanded.”

She highlights a three point historical blueprint used for centuries to secure the fall and Islamization of earlier Christian societies throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe, and how these constituents eventually subdued the majority host populations:

1- As a result of “wars, conquests, temporary peace treaties, terror like practices and alliances” There was a “gradual erosion of resistance within societies targeted but not yet conquered by jihad.”   

2- “Insecurity caused by the constant mass immigration of foreign populations and the subsequent process of alteration and substitution of one civilization by another, hostile to the indigenous inhabitants.” 

3- The emergence of powerful collaborationist parties economically and politically linked with Muslim Rulers.”

Wars, conquests, temporary peace treaties, alteration of host societies, terror attacks, emigration, gradual erosion.  Sound familiar?

Keeping in mind, this book was first published in 2005, the author is not referencing today’s monumental mass immigration into Europe but those of earlier migrations subsequent to the Second World War.  The intent of this hijra is unmistakable.  It can be traced back to the dawn of the Muslim era and codified by the the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah in 628 AD.  This one event set the criteria, the pattern for international relations between Muslims and the Kafir  (anyone not a Muslim) to this very day.

The Treaty was between Muhammad from Medina on the Arabian peninsular and another tribe opposed to Muhammad, the Quraish from Mecca.  It was intended to end years of strife and warfare between the two sides subsequent to Muhammad’s banishment from Mecca.  In part It acknowledged: A 10 year truce; allowed for Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca whence originally they came; offered the Quraish the option of conversion.

Hudaybiyyah, quoted throughout the centuries is a traditional source of pride to Muslims; it’s been their rendering for conquest of non-Muslim lands for millennia.  Facing pposition to the Treaty by some within his group, Muhammad allayed fears by promising “great booty” in the near future.  True to his men, not so the Quraish, within two years Muhammad abrogated the treaty and conquered the city. Why is this relevant today?

As the archetype of Islamic conquest, Hudaybiyyah contains all the elements utilized in jihad to sap the strength of an indigenous population until it breaks:  incessant hostility; terror tactics; 10 year truces; mass emigration; exhaustion of host resources.  This tried and true approach will become the death knell for modern Europe.  Consonant with other aforementioned considerations, mass immigration by foreign Muslim populations is once again leading to one civilization, the Muslims, replacing another, Christians, Jews, and all other “non-believers” on the continent.

Permeated with guilt never shared for their Jewish inhabitants, the European Union (EU) is finally beginning to realize they have opened up the gates of their own demise. Efforts have begun to stem this unprecedented avalanche of Islamic immigration.  According to an article in the Gatestone Institute International Policy Council:  Germany’s Muslim Demographic Revolution,”

  • “There are 20 million refugees waiting at the doorstep of Europe.”
  • Mosque attendance in Germany has doubled.
  • Muslim men “routinely take advantage of the social welfare system by bringing two, three or four women from across the Muslim world to Germany and are married by an Imam.” In accordance with Muslim doctrine the wealth of a country is degraded and usurped as:
  • The married women demand social welfare benefits, including the cost of a separate home for themselves and for their children, on the claim of being a “single parent with children.

It’s worth quoting in full a requiem by Victor Orban, the President of Hungary:

“For us today, what is at stake is Europe, the lifestyle of European citizens, European values, the survival or disappearance of European nations, and more precisely formulated, their transformation beyond recognition. Today, the question is not merely in what kind of a Europe we would like to live, but whether everything we understand as Europe will exist at all.”

A prescient observation by a man recognizing the handwriting on the wall.  Orban acknowledges the insidiousness of this uncompromising, messianic movement and how it seeks not only eradication of host culture but its history as well.

Across his border, German Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere stated on August 19, “800,000 Islamic refugee migrants are slated to enter Germany in 2015; a 4 fold increase over 2014.”….the equivalent  of nearly 1% of its total population.  Orban concluded:

“Many of the migrants are from the Middle East and North Africa, a large number (40%) are from countries in the Balkans, including Albania and Kosovo. This implies that nearly half of those arriving in Germany are economic migrants, not refugees fleeing war zones.”

Germany is not alone and this is not new news.  According to the latest 2015 Pew Research Center research, the demographics of this latest migration breaks down the following way:

With an additional 1.5 million Islamic “refugees” expected to stream across the continent this year; 81%, 35 or younger, the alarm has finally gone off.  The European Commission and Turkey have agreed on a plan to stem the flow of refugees to Europe by patrolling Turkey’s frontier with Greece and setting up new camps, but in lieu of factors already mentioned, it appears too late for Christian Europe to recover.   Indeed all signs suggest the next 25 to 50 years will see the inevitable displacement and Islamization of Europe’s Christian population.  The predominant question to many minds is:  How did this happen?  Who made the pivotal decisions to allow such unrestricted immigration onto the continent?

On October 2, 2014 Switzerland voted to limit mass immigration thru its borders.  Rather than follow its lead, European officials registered “regret” over the results of this referendum.  “There will be consequences, that’s clear,” demurred Luxembourg foreign minister Jean Asselborn.  German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier chimed in, “Switzerland has rather damaged itself with this result.”  Not to be outdone, French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius stated the vote was “bad news for Europe.”  One year later, arguably the greatest proponent of Middle Eastern immigration, German Chancellor, Angela Merkel is facing what the Wall Street Journal refers to as a “Revolt over Migrants.”

Speaking in Eastern Germany this past week it was difficult for her to ignore a man holding a poster that read, “stop the refugee chaos.  Preserve German culture and values.  Topple Merkel.”  By all accounts it may be too late for such sentiments.  Reports have it Sharia courts presided by Muslim “peace judges” now dot Germany, where even non-Muslim German judges in German courts cite Sharia law and quote from the Quran.

In 2011, Vienna’s High Court upheld a court conviction of a woman, Elisabeth-Wolff for making this factual statement about Muhammad:

“We all know that Muhammad married Aisha when she was 6 years old and consummated the marriage when she was 9. Now, what do we call this behavior if not pedophilia.”

This is the moribund state Europe is in today.  At least the fabled denizens of Troy had only to contend with one Trojan Horse, not so Europe today; many have already breached their gates.  Greeting these new arrivals are the progeny of earlier emigres usurping the lifeblood and culture of their new homeland.

Letter From Europe To USA: Do Not Take Refugees!

turkey-syriansRight Side News, by Nicolai Sennels, Denmark

Dear North Americans

Rumors have reached Europe that you are about to repeat our mistake of taking in tens of thousands of refugees from the Third World. Having seen my country and my continent radically changed during the last decades as a result of such immigration, here is a friendly, but serious warning.

First I want to stress that taking Third World refugees to the West is not the most compassionate reaction to war and unrest in the Middle East and Africa. Helping people to a life in safety inside a culture, language area, and climate they feel home in – their own geographic region – is much cheaper, and we can thus help more people. On top, we will avoid exposing our own citizens to often criminal and violent individuals, of whom many have radical, religious views. We have an obligation as humanists to help people in mortal danger, but when a culture breaks down, merely fleeing from a dangerous situation does not entitle one to Western standards of living. And we can give safety, medical help, and education to dozens of people within their own environment for the money it costs to maintain a single refugee in the West.

This is not just my own opinion: All parties in Europe promoting such arguments against taking in refugees are rising in the polls.

Refugees – Integration Imposssible

Integrating people from especially Islamic cultures into our European societies has proven impossible. Of course there are always individuals who manage, but integration of immigrants and refugees from these countries has been a huge failure. A recent study from Denmark shows that immigrants from Islamic countries are all at the very bottom of the list when it comes to getting jobs in their own countries. This Muslim inability engage in employment in their home countries carries over when the Muslims immigrate to Europe (Islamic countries in bold font.).

An experienced integration senior official described how “Refugees see work as a punishment. They see social welfare as money they get anyway, and work as a punishment that comes afterwards, unless you find a way to avoid it.” A German study of Muslims in Germany concludes that almost all of them want to keep their own culture instead of integrating into German culture: “94 percent agreed with the statement that immigrants in Germany should keep the culture of their country of origin.”


Importing people from these countries will thus not save us from the economic challenges of not having enough children ourselves to maintain a demographic population replacement rate. On the contrary, large numbers of immigrants on welfare will leave even less money for our own young, elderly, and sick. Allowing Muslim immigration to sustain a nation’s economic workforce to compensate for below-replacement birthrates is a hope that is not based on reality.

Refugees – Crime Waves

The failed integration has led to the creation of hundreds, if not thousands of parallel societies around West Europe.

Many of these areas are already developing into so-called no-go zones. In a leaked report, Swedish police characterize these areas like this: “It’s no-go-areas … a police car that is alone does not stand a chance. …there are 55 such areas in 22 cities in Sweden. 

In these areas there is serious violence, crime, extortion gangs, and attacks on police, firemen, and journalists. … there are areas in Sweden where Swedish law no longer exists.”

In Denmark an ice-cream company, out of security reasons, had to hire policemen as salesmen in order to be able to continue their business in such areas.

A report from Germany gives several examples like this one from the German city of Duisburg: “Duisburg, which has a total population of around 500.000, is home to an estimated 60,000 mostly Turkish Muslims, making it one of the most Islamized cities in Germany. … 

“There are districts where immigrant gangs are taking over entire metro trains for themselves. Indigenous residents and business people are being intimidated and silenced. People taking trams during the evening and nighttime describe their experiences as ‘living nightmares.’ … 

“Experts have warned for some time that problem neighborhoods could become no-go areas. The president of the German Police Union, Rainer Wendt, told Spiegel Online years ago: ‘In Berlin or in the north of Duisburg there are neighborhoods where colleagues hardly dare to stop a car — because they know that they’ll be surrounded by 40 or 50 men.’”

The wave of refugees has thus also resulted in a wave of crime. We have all seen the videos of violent attacks on the police and border facilities at Europe’s outer borders. It does not stop here. On their way through Europe, hoping to reach the countries with the largest social benefits, there are scenes of pure havoc. Here is an excerpt from one eye-witness report: “This great mass of people — sorry that I write this, but it’s an absolute horde. Vulgar words, thrown bottles, loud cries of ‘We want Germany’ — is Germany at present some kind of paradise? I saw how they surrounded the car of an older Italian lady, pulled her out by her hair and wanted to drive off in that car. The coach I was on they attempted to overturn. Excrement was thrown at us. They banged on the doors, so that the driver would open them. They spat at the window… I ask, for what purpose? How can this wild horde assimilate into Germany? For a moment, I thought I was in a war… cars arrived containing humanitarian aid — first and foremost, with food and water, yet they simply overturned these cars…”

The chief of the German Police union describes the violence committed by these people among fellow refugees like this: “In our asylum camps all hell has broken lose; at the border in South Germany, and in Bavaria especially it is hell too. Our colleagues are so busy that they have no time to take off their boots. That is not just since last week or last month, but all year. Our federal police and the Bavarian county police especially, and also police from other countries have for months now been heavily overwhelmed, and now the politicians act as if they are totally surprised, but it can not be. Nobody is surprised, and they should have reacted a lot sooner. There are mass brawls in asylum camps, robberies in grocery stores, which further strain the police. … Criminality among the refugees, meaning rapes of women and children, massive use of violence, and crime such as sexual exploitation and slavery. We see it all there. Those are not just little squabbles caused by living in cramped spaces; these are territorial conflicts and dominance struggles. And it results in fanatical groups that can not be separated easily. Our private security personal are completely overwhelmed. We do not have enough and they are not qualified enough. … The foreigners do not respect our rule of law. They instinctively know that our laws are weak. … This is not about family squabbles. We are talking heavy crime, that is, extreme criminal offences…”

The below chart from the Danish state’s department for statistics shows crime rates for the biggest population groups (indexes are corrected according to income, employment, age, and education). The plus or minus deviation from the 100 baseline indicates the percentage of likelihood that an immigrant from a particular country will become a criminal in the nation to which he immigrates.

If you import large amounts of people, you also import culture, and our societies and laws are very often simply too lenient for these people – our societies are too vulnerable. We can toughen the laws for our societies, but is this what we want in our countries?

Refugees – Jihad, Intended Consequences

High crime rates in ghetto areas are nothing new, also not in North America. But ghettos with an Islamic population are different. Being almost hermetically sealed from the surrounding democratic, secular society, the literal interpretation of the barbaric Islamic scriptures flourishes unchallenged by humanistic values and Western norms. A cross-European research project documented that 75 percent of Muslims in Europe thus think that the Quran must be taken literally. This is most likely the reason why a majority of young Muslims in Europe today sympathize with the Islamic doctrine of jihad, spreading the teachings of Muhammad, including the barbaric sharia laws, by means of violence against “infidels”: 80 percent of young Turks in Holland see “nothing wrong” in waging Jihad against non-Muslims. 27 percent of all young French and 14 percent of all young British under 25 sympathize with the genocidal terror organization, the Islamic State.

The violence potential in these areas is thus not just limited to participants of rival drug gangs. It stretches into the surrounding society because it has a political aim that involves all of us: the implementation of Islamic law, Sharia. Until now, police have been able to foil most attacks, but experts estimate that in Europe there are “So many potential terrorists being tracked [that it is] hard to track them all.”

Europe is Changing

Inviting thousands of refugees and migrants from Islamic countries to Europe has proven a catastrophe. It is destroying our economies and we are seeing how still larger parts of our beautiful cities are being dominated and ruined by a religious, violent counter-culture. On top of the cultural ruin comes the treat of terrorism.

Europe is famous for our open and tolerant culture, where we willingly pay a very high share of our income in taxes in order to maintain the weak and needy in a social safety net. But today most Europeans are experiencing just how Islamic immigrants and refugees are changing and challenging our way of life, in so many ways. Our children and youths are confronted by it in schools, on the street, and in discotheques. We all read the news daily about the increased violence, rape, and jihadist terror on our streets, while our welfare system and economic competitiveness are being eroded. The faces of our cities and societies are changing and becoming less and less recognizable for the indigenous Europeans.

Therefore today a majority of Europeans have a negative attitude towards Islamic immigration and religion. A recent poll showed that 63 percent of the otherwise tolerant Germans, many of them still burdened by a bad conscience from the Second World War, now think that Islam does not belong in Germany.

So, dear Americans, please do not make the same mistake that we Europeans have made. Learn from history, learn from our sorry example.

And yes, it is still possible to help refugees in real need with vital assistance. One example is the Kilis camp in Turkey (click for very a interesting article on “How to Build a Perfect Refugee Camp,” plus great photos).

As an example of what is effectively possible, the yearly international aid to developing countries was120 billion US dollars in 2007. For this amount alone, 70 million people could have conditions like in the Kilis camp for a whole year. If we add the money that is spent for accommodating refugees here in the West, I would think that the problem would be solved. Furthermore, the West would benefit from not having to accommodate terrorists, criminals, and un-integratable refugees flooding our countries.

We want to help. We should help. But not at the expense of our culture, our rule of law, and especially not at the expense of the safety of our women.




Breitbart, by Oliver Lane, Oct. 15, 2015:

Research in the European microcosm nation of Denmark has found three-quarters of Muslims in the country register on an important measure for radicalisation – more now than a decade ago.

Whereas 10 years ago Muslims in Denmark could have been considered to be comparatively moderate, today a poll by newspaper Jyllands-Posten finds attitudes have hardened – and the younger the Muslim, the more likely they are to hold hard-line views.

In a series of polls released by the paper over the course of this week, it has been revealed that Muslims are now more likely to take the word of the Quran literally, and that the teaching of the Islamic holy book should be implemented directly. In 2006 the number of people who agreed with the statement “the Quran’s instructions should be followed completely” was 62 per cent – today it has grown to 77 per cent; a strong majority.

While many have argued that the more violent verses of the Quran, which includes commandments to slay the enemies of the religion, have been taken out of context and are not to be interpreted literally, the view of three quarters of Muslims living in Denmark seems to contradict this view.

As well as taking the faith more literally, Muslims in Denmark also practice it with greater devotion, with more than half now praying at least five times a day, and a similar proportion rejecting the notions of any form of modernisation or reformation.

Jyllands-Posten reports this attitude towards a possible Islamic reformation came as a great disappointment to the small, elite group of Muslims that exist within the fashionable and powerful neighbourhoods of Copenhagen, such as Conservative member of parliament Naser Khader, who campaigns for such a reformation.

The paper reports the comments of one left-wing campaigner of Syrian Muslim heritage, who said in response to the poll’s findings that the fact Danish Muslims weren’t on board with their modernising mission was because the message had been mis-worded, and a rebranding of the concept of reformation would bring them up to date and in line with her metropolitan ideals. Contradicting this conceit, the paper also printed the remarks of Imam Fatih Alev of the Danish Islamic Centre, who said: “You can not change what is in the Quran and what the prophet has told us we need to do. Then you are not a Muslim any-more”.

On integration, attitudes towards the children of Muslim families marrying non-Muslims in Denmark varied. While a minority supported the idea of a daughter marrying someone outside the faith, a remarkable 74 per cent said they would be happy for a son to marry a non-Muslim.

This may be less surprising considering the literal interpretation of the Quran now enjoyed by the majority of Muslims in Denmark allows for polygamy, and for some wives to be treated less kindly than others.

Sociologist Brian Arly Jacobsen of the University of Copenhagen expressed surprise at the finding.

He told the paper: “It seems that Danish Muslims have become more religious in all dimensions, both in terms of faith and practice. Generally, we would expect that the opposite would happen, and that they would eventually come to resemble the rest of the Danes, who are not particularly religious activity”.

He said the opening of 30 new mosques in the past decade was likely the main cause of the radicalisation, a key warning to other European nations presently planning to allow the construction of mosques to serve their own booming Muslim populations. Perhaps most telling of all are the comments of Free Press Society chairman Katrine Winkel Holm, who said of the findings that they were a sign of Islamist forces within Denmark “unfolding at full speed”.

That Danish Muslims are now more hardline today than they were ten years ago should concern freedom of the press campaigners in the nation. It was back in 2005, a mere decade ago that cartoonists working with the Jyllands-Posten were threatened with execution, and massive protests spread from the nation worldwide after the paper published depictions of Mohammed.

The news reflects a trend also observed in Britain. In 2007 it was revealed that a staggering 36 per cent of young Muslims believe the act of leaving Islam deserves death.


mrk (1)Frontpage, by Daniel Greenfield, Oct. 9, 2015:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel insisted that refusing to take in Muslim migrants is a “danger for Europe.” Merkel as usual had it backward. It’s her program of taking in Muslim migrants that represents the gravest threat to the freedom and future of Europe since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Merkel may have already doomed Germany. The Bild newspaper published a leaked secret government document estimating that the number of migrants invading Europe this year might reach 1.5 million.

And that bad news gets much worse because the document estimates that each migrant will bring in as many as eight family members once they’re settled in, bringing the year’s true total to 7.36 million.

That’s almost 10 percent of the population of Germany. In just one invasion.

And the migrants are mostly young men entering a rapidly aging country whose young male population is under 5 million. Germany’s Muslim population already approaches 5 million. The median age of Germany’s Muslim population is 34, while the median age for the overall population is 46.

Merkel has rapidly sped up the rate at which Germany’s young male population becomes Muslim.

The document predicts up to 10,000 invaders entering every day. It foresees no end to the arrivals even when it gets cold. These words add up to the end of Germany and the end of Europe.

With numbers like these it’s no wonder that Merkel is frantically trying to shift the burden, berating Eastern European countries for their nationalism and failing to learn from history even though as a former Communist and a German leader, she represents the two political forces that historically did the most to deprive these nations of their national rights and their independence.

Merkel invokes the Berlin War to claim that fences don’t work. But the Berlin Wall kept people from leaving. The fences that Hungary has built are constructed in self-defense, not to keep Hungarians in, but to keep invading Muslims out. It’s Merkel whose EU totalitarianism represents a new Berlin Wall that mandates open borders for Muslim migrants while preventing countries from leaving the EU.

When Merkel states, “The refugees won’t be stopped if we just build fences. That I’m deeply convinced of, and I’ve lived behind a fence for long enough,” she is not only deliberately mangling the moral difference between a fence that keeps invaders out and a fence that keeps people in, but her own complicity in these fences. East Germany needed a fence because people wanted to flee its totalitarian regime. The European Union needs political fences to keep countries from escaping its political regime.

The choice isn’t between open borders and the Berlin Wall. Rather the open borders that Merkel advocates are another form of the Berlin Wall. Communist countries don’t make immigration difficult. They make emigration impossible. Free countries make immigration difficult, but emigration easy.

That’s how democracy is supposed to work. It allows the people of a nation to decide who can enter while allowing anyone to leave. Merkel’s EU brings back the USSR’s ‘Prison of Nations’ where everyone can enter, but no one can leave.

Merkel warns European countries that refusing Muslim immigrants is “not negotiable.” This is the type of language that totalitarian regimes use.

Europeans are told that they will lose their credibility if they don’t take in Muslims. “Who are we to defend Christians around the world if we say we won’t accept a Muslim or a mosque in our country?” she asks. “That won’t do.”

But taking in Muslims has prevented Germans from defending Christians even in their own country, not only in the Middle East.

Christian refugees in Germany report being persecuted, threatened and beaten by Muslims. An Iranian Christian refugee spoke of death threats from Syrian Muslim migrants. An Iraqi Christian family was beaten and told, “We will kill you and drink your blood.”

A Lutheran pastor says that he is asked by refugees, “Will we have to hide ourselves as Christians in the future in this country?”

That question is better addressed to Angela Merkel and her mad Muslim vision for Germany.

Islamizing Germany will not enable it to defend Christians in the Middle East. Instead it will make the government even more vulnerable to terrorist blackmail and political pressure from Muslims. And if Merkel were really concerned about Christians, she wouldn’t be fighting European countries that want to take in Christian refugees instead of Muslim migrants. Not only hasn’t her appeasement of Muslims done anything to help Christians in the Middle East, but it has endangered Christians in Germany.

Despite resistance from her own party, Merkel continues doubling down. She has seized control of refugee policy from her own interior minister, who was skeptical of her action and who may have helped leak the Bild document, and she continues to ignore calls for refugee limits from her own party.

Meanwhile Muslims in Germany are vocal about refusing to accept any limitations of Muslim immigration.

Merkel isn’t really an open borders fanatic. She’s a political hack who made a tragic mistake and is desperately trying to dump it on the rest of Europe. After originally taking the correct line, Merkel folded and rather than admit that she made a mistake whose implications will destroy her country, she is desperately manufacturing one ridiculous excuse after another to defend her actions.

Her calls for sharing the burden amount to dumping the consequences of her unilateral policy on the rest of Europe. It’s exactly the type of behavior she condemned from Greece, only to hypocritically practice a version of it that is far more disastrous, both from the standpoint of security and economics.

Merkel’s plan is to unilaterally demand that the rest of Europe “share” in the welfare, crime and terrorism of the Muslim migrants that she chose to take in. And there’s nothing fair about that.

But the Eurocrats can’t wrap their heads around the idea of border fences. The closest they can come to the idea is to hypocritically plead with Turkey to secure the borders that they refuse to secure.

The Turkish solution still requires Europe to take in another 500,000 Muslims from Turkey in exchange for its tyrannical Islamist ruler agreeing to secure its borders. This means outsourcing European border security to a hostile Muslim country whose ruler dreams of reviving the Ottoman Empire and boasted, “The mosques are our barracks, minarets our bayonets, domes our helmets, the believers our soldiers.”

That’s the sort of man that Europe will be turning over its security too. Meanwhile those 500,000 Muslims will also have to be “shared” all across Europe.

Merkel claims that the migrants “present more opportunities than risks.” What opportunities are these exactly? Half the Muslim “youth” in Germany are already unemployed.  Barely a third of Muslim immigrants earn a living through professional employment.

What opportunities will adding millions of Muslims to the welfare rolls accomplish except to create more jobs for the government bureaucrats who sign their welfare checks?

Merkel’s allies claim that she deserves the Nobel Prize. She certainly does. Hitler and Stalin were both nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. And Merkel has done more damage to Germany and Europe than any leader since these two worthy gentlemen before her had.
