Too late for Europe

I found this over on The Brussels Journal:

A quote from Ralph Peters in an interview at Frontpage Mag, 19 July 2007

[T]he notion that Europe, the continent that's exported more death and destruction than any other, is going to just shuffle wimpily to its doom is crazy. The Europeans have been playing pacifist dress-up while [America] protected them, but, sufficiently threatened, they'll revert to their historical pattern – which is to over-react. Europe's Muslims may prove to be the real endangered species; after all, Europe's history of dealing with rejected minorities veers between genocide and, for the lucky, ethnic cleansing. For me, the question isn't whether Muslims will take over Europe, but whether Europe will simply expel them or kill any number of them first. Sound far-fetched? How would the Holocaust have sounded to an educated German (or Brit, or American) in 1932? Europe is a killer continent. When the chips are down, it will kill again.

Meanwhile, Europe's Muslims are behaving so stupidly that their folly can't be measured with any tools at our disposal. Even as British pols pander to radical clerics, the average Brit has had enough of coddling mullahs who preach the destruction of all non-Muslims (and closing the pubs). In mid-July, in Germany, the major organizations representing the millions of Turkish residents refused to come to a conference held by the chancellor to address integration. The Turkish leaders demanded – demanded – that the German parliament first rescind a new immigration law that would have prevented Turks from importing child-brides, isolating them as virtual prisoners and beating them to death. Oh, and the Germans also wanted new immigrants to have a vocabulary of 300 German words upon arrival – just enough to say, "Help, husband killing me." No self-respecting Turk was going to stand for that.

You get the point. Europe has never had a model for integrating non-white immigrants, and they don't really want one. Meanwhile, from Denmark to Marseilles, Muslim residents make outrageous demands that only anger the average voter. Eurabia? You have a better chance of finding honest lobbyists in Washington than you do of seeing the crescent over the spires of Notre Dame.

There is truth here. Europe does have a bloody past and if they were to revert to the "old ways" they would butcher a large number of the Muslims living in Europe and deport the rest. In addition to this, if they really were going to revert to the way of doing things in the past, they would invade and colonize Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States. After all they need the oil desperately and the natives have proven themselves unwilling or unable to live among civilized nations and would [genuinely and sincerely - LC] benefit from being under the firm control of enlightened Western Christian overlords [look at what India is like today versus what it would have been like if there had been no colonization by the British].

Of course astute readers will have already spotted the flaw in the above scenario. Post-modern, post-Christian, post-enlightenment Europe cannot bring the Middle East, or anyplace else into the modern, enlightened and Christian world.

Europeans, from the highest to the lowest, used to believe in doing such things for the greater glory of God, King and Country. Today God is no longer believed in, Kings, where they still exist, are tourist attractions and nationalism is sneered at as a defining characteristic of the stupid and classless "cowboy Americans".

Yes a great many of the average European men and women in the street are tired of the Muslim minorities living among them and wish them gone but as long as those average Europeans continue to demand the maintenance of the socialist welfare state nothing will be done about the "Muslim problem". The reasons for this are twofold.

One is that Europe's native population is experiencing a declining population while lifespans are growing longer. This is leading to a smaller and older population which fully expects to receive the generous benefits which it has been promised (and which has spent its working life paying more than 60% of its income to fund). To fund this large social service payout the European economy requires a constant influx of immigrants and the immigrants are coming from the Islamic world.

In the eyes of the current adult generation of Europeans you can either do away with the welfare state and stop paying for every one's health care, stop subsidizing housing and food, start working 40 hours per week (at least) and start taking only 2 weeks of vacation per year (if that) and let everyone finance their own retirement through private IRA-type accounts - all of which lets you dispense with the Muslims. Or you can keep importing Muslims knowing that almost half of them will find some kind of work and pay taxes. Then you can pray that the final collapse will not come until after you are dead, or at least too senile to know the difference.

The other reason is that the leaders, the Euro Elite, is pursuing a plan, the foundations of which were laid decades ago, to fully integrate the Muslim world with Europe. The hope on the part of the European leadership is that the combination of European Western technology and overall societal competence blended with Arab/Muslim human capital and oil resources will finally create a block which can finally surpass the United States and any re-emergent Russia or China or India.

In other words Europe once again becomes the center of the world and European Elites once again become the masters of creation. Add to this the bribe money that European politicians are being paid by Arab dictators and Europe's bred-to-the-bone antisemitism and the Euro/Arab alliance (Bat Ye'Or's Eurabia) becomes an inevitability.

Just as the American Indians of today are not the people encountered by the first white Europeans all those centuries ago the modern Europeans are not the same people who marched under the banners of Rome or Charles the Great or even Napoleon and Wellington.

It would take a catastrophic collapse and rebuilding after a period of chaos to return Europe to what it once was, but the Europeans will not have the luxury of time to rebuild their own society in their own image. The Muslims are there already waiting for the demographic time-bomb to explode in 35 to 40 years and make them the majority. After that there will be no going back. Democratically governed Europe will hold one final election in which sharia will be imposed and then there will be no more elections because Allah will be in charge.
