Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/12/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/12/2012The summer rush of culture enrichment into southern Italy is really picking up steam. 25 Syrian migrants were intercepted off the southern Italian coast, 63 African migrants landed in Portopalo, and 45 South Asians landed on the Salento coast. 61 Somalis were rescued at Pozzallo, and another 84 were pulled from the sea off Malta. In another boat, 54 of 55 would-be migrants from Africa perished from dehydration.

In other news, a Nigerian senator and another politician were killed in an attack by Boko Haram terrorists on a funeral for victims of an earlier Boko Haram attack. The Nigerian Senate has since called for talks with Boko Haram in an effort to end the crisis.

Re the Bosnia trial and the "revelation" that muslims killed their own to gain western attention and help. (what's new?)

Politicians never learn do they. We intervened in Libya, we supported the Egyptian revolution, we gave tacit support to Tunisia and many many other north African states. Now the west is even considering intervention in Syria on "humanitarian grounds".Now where have I heard that before?
That is all quite apart of course from Iraq and Afghanistan.

What we currently see is islam triumphing in the whole of North Africa. Islamisation is winning over democracy. Turkey is on the brink and the secularisation introduced by Kamal Attaturk is gradually being eroded.

If Syria falls to the islamists (and remember war is deceit) then Jordan will quickly follow.
What then? Well, in my opinion,we shall then see a successor "Ottoman Empire" but covering a far bigger geographical area.

If Pirenne was right then all productive areas will fall into disuse and Spain at least will again be raided. Israel will likely cease to exist.

Bewick, Israel is probably the only
country that will not fall to Islam.
They are clued up and possess a
terrific nuclear arsenal with now I
think 5 or 6 nuclear submarines.If
you think they will hesitate to use
this hardware, you are living in
fantasy city.

I'm well aware of the military capabilities of Israel and their bravery. They may well use their arsenal but they will be a very small country totally surrounded by islamic aggression. I'm far from living in fantasy land. I believe that I'm taking a realistic, if pessimistic, view of what could happen.
