In Denial about Islam

This is written by William Kirkpatrick, in Crisis Magazine. He’s right, of course, about Europe, but it’s no different here, really. Perhaps Trump understands, but not many others seem to. They seemingly will continue to play the old games in the old way, until we’re all either dead or Muslim. Here are some excerpts.

Rival gangs battle in the streets and set fire to cars. Uncovered women are considered fair game. Molotov cocktails are hurled at police stations.

Syria? No, Sweden. For a long time, Sweden has been importing Middle Eastern immigrants into its small nation, and now it is experiencing many of the problems of the Middle East. The same thing is happening in France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, and England.

It’s often said that we in America just have to look at history to understand the fate that may be in store for us. But it’s no longer necessary to consult history books. All you have to do is look at what’s happening right now on the other side of the Atlantic.

In Germany during the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,000 crimes. But since the data only includes crimes that have been solved, the actual number of migrant crimes is likely far higher. In many parts of the country, police say they are unable to maintain law and order. More than 20,000 purses are snatched each year in Hamburg, and gangs of migrant youth have taken control of parts of the Jungfernsteig, a prestigious boulevard. The situation is much the same in Bremen, Berlin, Duisburg, Dusseldorf, and Stuttgart. All over Germany, migrant gangs and roving bands of migrant youth operate with near impunity. […]

Unless the French, the Germans, and the Swedes resist at some point soon, they, along with other European states, will someday be Islamic states. Europe is in the midst of a massive historical change, the significance of which rivals the fall of the Roman Empire. What we are witnessing is the gradual but inexorable substitution of one civilization for another.[…]

Of all the factors contributing to Islam’s hostile takeover of Europe, perhaps the most important is denial. If you deny the reality of Islamization, you can’t effectively resist it. The reality is that Europe is in a life and death struggle, but the denialists insist that it’s just business as usual. They assure us that terror has nothing to do with Islam (so don’t worry), that immigration is just cultural enrichment (it’s good for you), and that there are no no-go-zones (but it’s best to avoid them).

In Europe it’s not only the leaders who are in denial. The average citizen is expected to go along with the delusion. If he doesn’t, he can face arrest, prosecution, fines, and even jail time. In the Netherlands, individuals who post Facebook comments critical of Islam or immigration can expect a visit from the police. In Germany, citizens who express “xenophobic” views on social media risk having their children taken away. Meanwhile, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) has ordered the British Press not to report when terrorists are Muslims. […]

Once again, the main problem is denial. The reason that the denialists cling to their denial is that they live in the past. European denialists live mentally in the post-war years. They must prove to themselves that Europe has abandoned its anti-Semitic ways. And for some insane reason, they have decided that the way to make up for Europe’s past sins is to welcome the “new Jews” (Muslims) into their midst. In short, they have made a colossal error and since it’s not easy to admit that you rank with history’s greatest blunderers, they must continue to maintain that the disaster unfolding around them is nothing more than a rough patch on the road to the multicultural Promised Land.

Yeah, all that.

Lincoln said this, “The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present… As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.” True then, true now. But so many, especially on the left, have forgotten nothing and learned nothing, not since well before the fall of the Soviet Union. And since we barely teach history anymore (eminent exceptions gratefully noted) they have in addition learned nothing about how our civilization has overcome these problems, in fact, this exact problem, before. When did you learn about the Battle of Viena? How about the Battle of Lepanto? Maybe the Battle of Tours?

Exactly the same thing, the west, against Islam, in Europe. We won those, so now they try a different way. and so far they are winning.

Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan had it right, “The time, they are a’changing.”

But will the change favor the west or Islam? That’s for us to decide.

  2. I know this is a political blog foremost, but to miss the religious so-called nature of Islam would be a great peril!

      It is, but as you also know, the foundation is Christianity. Yes, exactly, it would be, it is. It is the mistake almost all political leaders are making. Mrs. May made it explicitly last week. I don’t really see it as malice, but as ignorance, and an unwillingness to see. But that doesn’t really matter, the result is the same.

      • An unwillingness to see and block-head ignorance can equal malice, especially as it concerns Islam to my mind. As the blog below argues about Nazism!

          Indeed it can, although sometimes, perhaps, inadvertently.

        • Are we “inadvertently” killing the true message of Christianity, or is it more of just about apostasy? I would say the latter myself, of course apostasy is abandoning what was once believed! We cannot plead an ignorance of being unaware, especially as professing Christians!

        • Yes, this is spoken in that nature of a question, but comes from my own pastoral and theological mind and heart to the Visible and even Historical Church! Though I myself be little and next to nothing in this Visible Church itself! To God be the Glory!

    Hitler made of Nazism a religion that returned to the pagan Germanic past. I doubt anyone after the war would have welcomed the people who adopted this new ideology/religion would welcome these people into their lands as religious refugees. South America seems to have been the destination of their ideology and they still suffering from it today and spreading it through a variety of totalitarian ideals; not least Marxist, Peronist, Communist along with the virus of Liberation Theology which is the religious component.

    The mistake has already been made and I don’t personally understand how to fix it if the people do not demand that this totalitarian ideology of Islam parading beneath a mantle of a sham religion is to be continually protected under Western ideas of religious freedom and multi-culturalism and protected by hate laws and fomented by Christian leaders as aid to the poor, tolerance and what have you. Wolves in sheep’s clothing is even inadequate to describe what is now a protected group of totalitarians who have passively invaded the West under the guise of being displaced, persecuted peoples who only want to practice their ‘religion?’ in peace. We have been hoodwinked and short of sending them all back to their homelands we are making a big mistake; sort of like giving cancer cells refuge in an otherwise healthy body. But political correctness is so ensconced that I doubt a remedy will be found before we have succumbed to the disease.
