"The Crusader would have been quite justified in suspecting the Muslim even if the Muslim had merely been a new stranger; but as a matter of history he was already an old enemy. The critic of the Crusade talks as if it had sought out some inoffensive tribe or temple in the interior of Tibet, which was never discovered until it was invaded. They seem entirely to forget that long before the Crusaders had dreamed of riding to Jerusalem, the Muslims had almost ridden into Paris." — G.K Chesterton (1874-1936)
"O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." — Koran (5:51)
"No one can be a true Muslim and a true American simultaneously." — Wafa Sultan (From A God Who Hates)
Are you familiar with the word dhimmi? You should be; it means an infidel (non-Muslim) living under the heel of an Islamic theocracy. The plural is dimam, and Europe has increasingly become a Balkanized checkerboard of nationalistic strongholds, and Islamic dimam regions.
The servitude of the dimam will be America's fate as well, unless "We the People" wake up to Islam's threat to our freedom. That's not hyperbole, people — just check out what has happened, and is happening, in Europe — Nazi Eurabia. America's next.
The term "Eurabia" was first popularized by the brave and outspoken Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci, in a trio of books she wrote concerning the takeover of Europe by Muslims. When she was old, ill, and dying of cancer, she was put on trial by her native Italy — for daring to speak out against Islam — "those eternal invaders," as she called them.
The "Nazi" aspect of Eurabia has come about through a combination of the introduction of waves of rabidly anti-Semitic Muslim immigrants, and the re-emergence of a dormant European ant-Semitism — dormant for a relatively brief period following WWII, that is.
Excepting Denmark, Nazi-occupied Europe during WWII was, by and large, all too willing to cooperate with the anti-Semitic policies of their German conquerors.
It is important to realize that there was, and is, a great affinity between Communists and Fascists. The Nazis were no more a phenomenon of the right than Communism is. Fascism has always been aligned with the left. It is only because of the left's inimitable ability to turn the truth on its head that anyone suffers from the delusion that the Nazis were a right-wing ideology.
Fallaci makes the point simply and clearly in her book The Force of Reason. She quotes an article from one of Italy's premiere Fascist magazines, written during the waning days of Mussolini's reign in 1944:
"Roosevelt and Churchill and their partners must realize that should the Axis...miss victory, the majority of Fascists escaped from the scourge would go over to Communism. They would make common cause with it, and this would cross the gap that today separates the two revolutions."
So the swastika belongs to the left, and always has. After the war, the newly camouflaged Fascists, mingled with subversive Communists, and did indeed "make common cause" in the years following the war. They slowly took over the press, the media, academia, and the governments of Europe — until the only conservative power left was in the people themselves. Sound familiar?
These far left Communists and Fascists (neither calling themselves that, of course) pushed Europe inexorably to the left, and welcomed Islam as a "comrade in arms."
In his 1955 book War and Peace in the Law of Islam, Islamic law scholar Majid Khadduri wrote, "The jihad [is] an instrument for both the universalization of religion, and the establishment of an imperial world state." The global Islamic Caliphate.
"An imperial world state" — one can see the allure of Islam to the far left. The far left and Islam have been using each other as "useful idiots" for decades — playing off of each other to the detriment of freedom, capitalism, and democracy. It would be amusing to see how this "marriage of convenience" works out — from a safe seat on the sidelines — but there is no safe seat in this game, and everyone is perforce a player.
With the assistance of liberal European media, politicians, and academics, Muslims have been immigrating to Europe for several decades. As the levels of Islamic immigration, and the time since the Holocaust increased, so has the amount of European anti-Semitism.
As Bruce Bawer notes in "While Europe Slept," it is now "...the European elite's conviction that Islamaphobia is the new anti-Semitism — that Muslims are now the victims, Jews the Nazis."
In typical "turn the truth on its head" style, the liberal (read that as Communist/Fascist) elite in Europe, in conjunction with their Islamic cohorts, have declared "open season" on Israel, and by implication, on all Jews.
The anti-Semitism in Europe became so bad that, in 2003, the European Union (EU) compiled a report titled "Manifestations of Anti-Semitism in the European Union. "Even though it was largely a whitewash of the situation, it was still deemed too inflammatory by the powers that be, and the report was buried and never published. Nonetheless, copies were leaked, and the report showed how widespread and violent, demonstrations of anti-Semitic behavior had become throughout Eurabia.
Lars Hedegaard, of the International Free Press Society, notes that Jews in Malmo, Sweden's third largest city, cannot walk the streets if they openly show signs of their religion. If you have the time, you should watch Pat Robertson's short video report on the Malmo situation.
The European country with the worst anti-Semitism and Muslim invasion problem is, bar none, France. Perhaps no other incident so vividly portrays France's predicament as the horrific murder of 23-year-old Ilan Halimi in 2006. Halimi was a Jewish Parisian who was kidnapped by a gang of Muslim immigrants, eponymously named "The Barbarians." For about a three-week period, Halimi was systematically tortured by his Muslim captors.
According to the Wall Street Journal...the gang phoned the family on several occasions and made them listen to the recitation of verses from the Quran, while Ilan's tortured screams could be heard in the background."
Guy Millière adds, "The screams must have been loud because the torture was especially atrocious: the thugs cut bits off the flesh of the young man, they cut his fingers and ears, they burned him with acid, and in the end poured flammable liquid on him and set him on fire."
In the same FrontPage article, Millière touches on a cultural phenomena endemic to cowed "normal" Muslims, and intimidated European dhimmi: "Many other residents in the building had heard a man screaming, but had decided to mind their own business instead of calling for help, even anonymously. 'When you live here, you think about yourself, and only about yourself,' one of them said."
When Halimi was finally released, "He was naked, handcuffed, and bleeding profusely. He was incapable of speaking. His entire body — or "80% of it," according to police — had been butchered. He died of his wounds on the way to the hospital, just a few minutes after he was discovered," according to The New York Sun.
And the beat goes on — 704 incidents of anti-Semitism were registered in France during the first nine months of 2009 compared to 350 during the same period of 2008.
Islamic intimidation and violence isn't limited to the Jews, of course.
In 2005 Denmark's largest newspaper Jyllands-Posten, in an effort to assert free speech, published a collection of cartoons centered on Mohammed. The echoes from the blast reverberate to this day.
Recently Yale announced plans to publish a book about the Danish cartoons, titled The Cartoons that Shook the World — minus the cartoons. In a gutless move, Yale says that the book will be sans cartoons, because they are "concerned about a possible resurgence of violence."
"When you live here, you think about yourself, and only about yourself." You see how it works? Welcome to the Caliphate.
It's also worth noting that Yale has been paid off like some street whore, with millions in Saudi donations. (Don't smirk Harvard, your hands are dirty too).
If bribery, threats, or intimidation don't work, Muslims may resort to murder. In 2004, Dutch political columnist, film maker and gadfly, Theo van Gogh, was murdered for his "Islamaphobia." His crime? He had made a short film about Islam's misogynistic treatment of women, called "Submission."
When asked if he feared for his life after receiving death threats from Muslim extremists, he reportedly replied, "Nobody kills the village idiot." Sorry Theo, but even the "village idiot" is not immune from Islamic hatred.
While bicycling one day, van Gogh was shot off of his bike, and then shot eight more times, his throat slit — nearly decapitating him — and stabbed repeatedly. Then his murderer — Dutch-born Muslim, Mohammed Bouyeri — took a letter he had written, and slammed a dagger through the letter and deep into van Gogh's chest, lest the letter blow away.
One of the lines in the letter reads: "I know definitely that you, O America, will go down."
Speaking of Islam's treatment of women, Britain now provides free surgery for women who have been the victims of Islamic ritual female genital mutilation (FGM).
According to The London Times, "The procedure, predominantly carried out on girls aged between 5 and 12, can range from the removal of the clitoris to the removal of all the exterior parts of the vagina, which is then sewn up."
The article continues, "Five hundred girls a year are treated for mental and physical complications at the UK's only specialist clinic at Guy's Hospital in London Bridge....But experts believe these figures are just the tip of the iceberg because a significant number of victims will never seek medical help."
The Times notes that it is estimated that a considerable number of Muslim women living in the U.K. are victims of FGM. "A study by the Foundation for Women's Health, Research and Development, estimated that 66,000 women living in England and Wales had been circumcised...."
Granted, this specific practice is limited to women from certain areas of the Islamic world — still and all, the UN estimates that "up to 130 million women have been genitally mutilated."
In other areas of the Caliphate, the Muslim men have other means to keep their women in line — acid. As Nicholas Kristof writes in a New York Times article, acid is "commonly used to terrorize and subjugate women and girls in a swath of Asia from Afghanistan through Cambodia. Because women usually don't matter in this part of the world, their attackers are rarely prosecuted and acid sales are usually not controlled. It's a kind of terrorism that becomes accepted as part of the background noise in the region."
I urge you to look at some photos of the victims of this Islamic technique of inspiring fear and submission. Especially if you're one of those liberal idiots who thinks "Burka Barbie" was a hoot. Go ahead, do it now — I'll wait.
These atrocities are not all that rare. In his article, Kristof mentions Shahnaz Bukhari, who runs a clinic for Muslim women. He notes that Ms. Bukhari has documented nearly 8,000 women "who were deliberately burned, scalded or subjected to acid attacks, just in the Islamabad area. In only 2 percent of those cases was anyone convicted."
"Just in the Islamabad area." You should check out her website. One of the photos shows a woman who was blinded and had her nose cut off by her husband — yet another common technique for dealing with women who get too "uppity."
What about more civilized areas — like Saudi Arabia for example? Better, but still nothing to write home about.
The Huffington Post recently ran an article titled "Saudi Judge: Slapping your Spendthrift Wife is Okay." As indeed it is — in Saudi Arabia.
As is selling your female children. An article from last spring noted that an eight-year-old girl had successfully sued for divorce from the 50-year-old man her father had "married" her to — for $13,000. The article went on to note that there is a push to "put an end to the phenomenon." The "phenomenon" sounds an awful lot like legalized pedophilia to me.
Did you know that Great Britain has two legal systems — one for Muslims, and the other for the rest of us — the dimam? I'm talking about Sharia law folks.
Last year The Times of London observed that "The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence."
Domestic violence? Oh yeah, there'll be a whole bunch of Muslim men headed for jail in Britain now.
And with Yale and Harvard turning out their post-America, indoctrinated "legal weasels," who despise the Constitution, and think it's just swell to look around the world for other, newer, better, more "socially just" interpretations of law — how long do you think it'll be before they make their move to insert sharia law into our U.S. system? Any bets?
So is there any hope for Eurabia, or as Bawer says, is it a case where "Europe is committing suicide, and perhaps all we can do is look on in horror?"
There are small signs of hope — I'll give you a couple. There was a short film made last year called Fitna by Dutchman Geert Wilders. Insofar as it throws "radical" Islam into a bad light — or rather, simply throws it into light — Fitna was a courageous undertaking, with Theo van Gogh's murder still fresh in the minds of both the Muslims and the dhimmis of The Netherlands. You should watch it.
In Switzerland, the people recently voted to ban the building of minarets. Daniel Pipes notes that while the vote, in and of itself, may not be that consequential, it's indicative of a growing movement among the people (not the governments) of Eurabia.
After the Swiss vote, magazines across Europe polled their readers to find out how they would have voted on the same issue. Pipes writes,"Although not scientific, the lop-sidedness of these...polls, ranging from 73 to 93 percent majorities endorsing the Swiss referendum, signal that Swiss voters represent growing anti-Islamic sentiments throughout Europe. The new amendment also validates and potentially encourages resistance to Islamization throughout the continent."
Switzerland may have started something — which is not surprising, really. Switzerland is the country that nobody messed with through two world wars. If you want to know why, check out their militia. As Bill Walker says, "Nobody attacks the Swiss. Not even the Swiss attack the Swiss; their crime rate is minuscule."
I should also add that Denmark, as could be expected, has shown some courageous resistance as well.
What about America — how are we doing? How do we stack up against Eurabia?
Well, we're doing much better than Europe, thank God, but that is rapidly changing for the worse. America's a hard nut to crack, but the tag team of the far left and Islamic militants is already deeply entrenched in this country and are going about their business with a vengeance.
Like their European counterparts, the American left is rooted in Marxist/Communist/Fascist doctrines, and they have little trouble relating to another anti-freedom, anti-Western culture system, such as Islam.
