Fjordman on the EU, Islam, and Europe

Fjordman’s latest essay, “The European Union and the Islamization of Europe”, touches on topics that will be familiar to readers from his work here at Gates of Vienna.

Some excerpts:

The EU involves the free movement of people across borders. If it expands to the Middle East, hundreds of millions of Muslims will have free access to Germany, Italy, France, Britain, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Austria. If Turkey becomes a member, it means that Greeks, Bulgarians and others who have fought against oppression by Ottoman Turks for centuries will now be flooded with Muslims from a rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey. The same goes for Poles, Hungarians, Romanians and others who fought against Muslims for centuries.

The EU’s Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini states that Europe must relax its immigration controls and open the door to an extra 20 million “Africans and Asians” during the next two decades. Most of these “Africans and Asians” come from the predominantly Muslim countries of North Africa and the Greater Middle East. The EU thus decided to flood Europe with tens of millions of Muslims at the same time as peaceful Europeans demonstrating against the Islamization of Europe were brutally harassed by the police in the EU capital of Brussels. Frattini has also banned the use of the phrase Islamic terrorism: “People who commit suicide attacks or criminal activities on behalf of religion, Islamic religion or other religion, they abuse the name of this religion.” He thinks we shouldn’t use the word “immigration,” either, we should talk about “mobility.”

While Dutch politicians, in what was until recently a peaceful country, have been killed for being too critical of Islam, while Islamic terror attacks have murdered people in London and Madrid, while more terror attacks are planned every single day from Italy via Paris to Denmark, and while people from Sweden to Germany are subject to Muslim street violence and harassment, EU leaders want to increase Europe’s Muslim population by tens of millions in a few years. This is criminal and evil, pure and simple.

In Cologne, Germany, a Muslim teenager who wanted to mug a 20-year-old German man was killed in an act of self-defense, according to witnesses. This led to angry protests from Muslims. Apparently, non-Muslims are not supposed to defend themselves from attacks. This violence is usually labelled “crime,” but I believe it should more accurately be called Jihad.

Those who know Islamic history, as described in books such as The Truth About Muhammad by Robert Spencer or The Legacy of Jihad by Dr. Andrew G. Bostom, know that looting and stealing the property of non-Muslims has been part and parcel of Jihad from the very beginning. In fact, so much of the behavior of Muhammad and early Muslims could be deemed criminal that it is difficult to know where crime ends and Jihad begins. In the city of Oslo, it is documented that some of the criminal gangs also have close ties to Jihadist groups at home and abroad. As Dutch Arabist Hans Jansen points out, the Koran is seen by some Muslims as a God-given “hunting licence,” granting them the right to assault and even murder non-Muslims. It is hardly accidental that while Muslims make up a minority of the population in France, they make up an estimated seventy percent of French prison inmates.

So...who will save Europe from the end of this script from hell? Will it be Snow White? Or some other fantasy figure? Or can we put aside our unrealistic fantasy and join hands with someone who will and can fight...

Sodra Djavul said...

No, Rise_Up. It will be the self-professed Lizard Army, hiding under the Denver airport, armed with their kung-fu keyboards with laser beams on their heads.

I always thought this peculiar fascination with reptiles hiding from the light of day somewhat queer myself. But it does seem consistent with their actions.

I'd be willing to fight alongside anyone else who has a vested interest in the outcome of the fight.

Just don't think these peculiar people speak for all of Americans.

And now the GOV clock stands at a quater to twelve,will you still pick and choose who you stand with to defend our future?

Here's something related...Muslims want Call to Pray broadcasted from the dreaming spires in Oxford, England.

Englishman: Not me. I'll stand alongside anybody, anybody who is an enemy of islam.

Charlemagne said...

Frattini and ANYONE that thinks like him should be run out of office. It is absolutely mind boggling that they want to import even more poor, unassimilable, 3rd world peasants to destroy Europe. What the Hell are they thinking? Do they not want a country and culture for their children, no matter how few they insist on having? I honestly can't put my mind around the thought processes of the multiculturalists. What is their end goal? To destroy Europe and Western culture? Do they think that they can somehow preserve the self-destructive welfare state with massive immigration? Do they like the sight of mosques? Do they believe that they can use the immigration issue to somehow control their own native populations? Are there any interviews where Frattini answers these questions?

There will be war in Europe.

I will continue to say until it happens that the Muslims MUST be provoked into a continent wide destructive rage.

If Geert Wilders can't convince his own family of the dangers of Islam what hope is there for the rest of Europe.

It really makes me angry that so many Europeans are willing to go their collective cultural deaths in meek silence.

Charlemagne said...

Follow up - IMO enablers and apologists such as Frattini, the Archbishop of Canterbury, et al are far more dangerous than the Muslims themselves, so far, because they actively help the enemy or are too afraid to stand up to the enemy. Give me one good, brave man in place of a thousand Frattinis on the field of battle and the battle can be won.

kyros said...

Charlemagne you're absolutely right in saying that there will be war in Europe. It will be just like Serbia-Kosovo but on a much grander scale. Give it 10-20 years. Unfortunately I do not see any reversal of the situation, unless there is a complete 180 degree shift of attitude in Europe's governments.

"What the Hell are they thinking?"

The problem is that they are NOT thinking. Or better still, the Europeans have ran smack-dab into a virulent strain of Insanity. What is happening is that most of the Western world is self-flagellating themselves out of guilt laced by Progressive types who go so far as to see the elimination of themselves as the key to restoring "peace" unto the world, nevermind that the other "unenlightened" cultures of the Eastern world will more than make up for the lack of carnage. It is the romanticism of the Eastern world by Western intellectuals that has clouded the average Westerner's judgment concerning any negative trend arising from the Eastern sphere. To the average intellectual, the Muslim man is just a pawn whose hatred of the West will be used to stamp out existing Western civilization. Then he'll be brushed aside or transformed alongside everyone else into the NEW SOCIALIST MAN that these types rave on about. To the Muslim man, the Western intellectual is just the infidel pawn who was dumb enough to hold the door open for Islam. He'll be dealt with when the Western man is either placed under dhimmitude or eliminated altogether.

And that's the fallacy of the entire Western Socialist plan -- banking your entire strategy on an element that you know, deep down, that you not only cannot control, but whom will also turn on you as soon as your objectives are complete. It's like shooting a man who is holding the rope that is keeping a rather large weight over your head. But then again, the most severe Socialist wouldn't mind giving up the Earth to the beasts of the forests and savannas, nevermind the beasts have little understanding of such a "gracious" gesture and will proceed to go on about life in the usual manner (eating, killing, reproducing).

It's funny to see that the very policies that Europe is taking on to head off any sort of massive-scale confrontation is putting them square on the road to war. I can see Kosovo as the opening salvo of the next European civil war, as the Muslim population show their ungratefulness for their gift (Kosovo), wrapped up in the prettiest of bows by a Europe concerned with carrying on Chamberlain's policy of delaying the inevitable while praying it doesn't happen at all (or that the enemy develops a change of heart). Unfortunately, Europe will have to drink from the turbulent cup of Islam for the next few generations in order to fully understand the negatives of embracing the "Religion of Peace", as well as breed a class of people who have experienced life under TROP and want nothing more than to liberate their lands of it by any and all means necessary.

Counter-Jihadist said...

It's no accident that the elite EU architects of the "New Socialist Man", somehow excluded in the Treaty of Lisbon the equivalent of the US "2nd Amendment".

If I lived in EUrope, I'd be stockpiling food and water, and in the absence of firearms, fashioning as many plowshares into swords and I could.

War is coming.

Charlemagne: What the Hell are they thinking?

That is precisely the promblem. There is absolutely no thinking involved. This is all about liberal emotions and "feelings", not coherent thinking. No rational mind can possibly countenance European Multiculturalism without reeling at the notion of collective suicide being committed on such a massive scale.

After explaining to them Islam's immense threat and the severe measures required to defeat it, I have had liberals I know tell me how they "feel" that I am totally wrong. Perish the thought that they might have any sort of reasonable alternative or counter-argument. No such thing do they have. Only the "feeling" that I must be wrong as they then blackball me and politely exclude me from all further affairs.

Increasingly, liberalism's extremely delicate house of philosophical cards will be set ateetering by Islam's onslaught. Liberals will either finally have to confront their own intellectual bankruptcy or find surcease beneath Islam's swiftly descending sword. For how desperately liberals cling to their cherished ideals—even as they repeatedly collapse into rubble before them—only the sword will ever give them surcease from their political fantasy world.

All that remains to be seen is how much of precious, hard-won modern civilization they will drag over the edge with them as they troop to the precipice.

Homophobic Horse said...

It's always dangerous when people say they "feel" and not "believe".

The Frankfurt schoolers declared "reason" and "reality" to be authoritarian tools of oppression. Which leaves feeling as the only criteria left for evaluating anything in egalitarian liberal society. The botched deportation of Roma from Italy is a case in point. Liberals, unable to evaluate the merits and demerits of Roma immigration can only make decisions based on the flush of emotion that accompanies horrid incidents of murder and robbery. If we lived by reason, such things could be avoided.

It's not surprising that in an intellectual environment like this people can start to believe in things like the "One-World" and "Age of Aquarius" charlatanry. But how perfect for these intellectual derelicts, those things don't just make thinking unnecessary: they make not thinking a positive virtue. For thinking might lead to classification and discrimination, thus fragmenting "oneness". Seriously. I've met people who buy into this.
