Europe: progressive ideology on course for ... civil war

Go back to where you are happy – German author on immigration issue
Udo Ulfkotte, a noted German journalist and author, known for his severe criticism of Islam, shared with RT his view on what is behind the integration dispute and where it may lead.

“What I believe is there is a place for Muslim in this world and for their culture, they have a place to live in,” Ulfkotte told RT. “And there is a place for European and Western culture to live in. What I don’t believe is they will live peacefully together. We have a clash not only of civilizations and religions, we have a clash of ideologies, like we had a clash between communism and capitalism. Now we have a clash because Islam is also an ideology. I believe that Islam is not going to win a battle.”

The journalist claimed that he does not believe that Muslims will overrun Europe. “Because I believe that what we have done in the past several times – the people will stand up and say ‘We are fed up, we don’t want that any more,’ and try to push them back. And that will be violent. I belong to Europe and to European culture and the Muslims belong to the places where they came from. Because whenever I ask the majority of Turks I speak to, and I ask them, ‘Are you German or are you Turkish?’ Even if they are second or third generation, they will say, ‘I’m Turkish.’”

“The Palestinians: if they live in Saudi Arabia as workers, they say, ‘I’m a Palestinian and my home is Palestine.’ I don’t blame them for that," said Ulfkotte. “I just say, ‘Okay. So if as they say they have their roots there, they are happy there, all the best. Take your suitcases and go back to where you are happy. I will be happy, you will be happy.” ...

RT: what future do you predict for this continent?

Udo Ulfkotte: The financial and economical crisis, it looks like it will come back. And whenever you had in history... hard economical problems, ethnical unrest, and ... large groups not respect the state laws and the power of the state... when this respect is gone you had war or civil war.
Daniel Pipes, Europe's Stark Options
The possibility of Muslims accepting the confines of historic Europe and smoothly integrating within it can virtually be dismissed from consideration...

As the American columnist Dennis Prager sums them up, "It is difficult to imagine any other future scenario for Western Europe than its becoming Islamicized or having a civil war." Indeed, these two deeply unattractive alternative paths appear to define Europe's choices, with powerful forces pulling in the contrary directions of Muslims taking over or Muslims rejected, Europe an extension of North Africa or in a state of quasi-civil war.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali speaks on the loss of freedom in Europe
It is this state of affairs that makes Christopher Caldwell’s book Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration and the West ... which opens with the sentence, “Western Europe became a multi-ethnic society in a fit of absence of mind,” a chilling read...

Caldwell discusses this theme in an interesting light: he does not overlook the Europeans who feel that Islam is a danger to European values but asks, “How can you fight for something you cannot define?” And this is Europe’s problem – insecurity about who we are, what our various flags mean, why, with every turn, we spend less and less on the military.

Europe has become a place for new religions, new creeds, multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism, transnationalism. Everything is thus relative. This is an uncertainty that the Muslim does not share. The Muslim ethic and tribal spirit are far more resilient and fierce in war than the protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism...

In reality, if Europe falls, it’s not because of Islam. It is because the Europeans of today – unlike their forbears in the Second World War – will not die to defend the values or the future of Europe. Even if they were asked to make the final sacrifice, many a post-modern lily-livered European would escape into an obscure mesh of conscientious objection. All that Islam has to do is walk into the vacuum.
Fjordman: Review of Christopher Caldwell's Reflections on the Revolution in Europe
Whatever is going to happen in Western Europe over the coming decades is not going to be peaceful. In 2010 there are already conditions resembling civil war in many French and certain Dutch, British, German, Italian and even Scandinavian suburbs; Kalashnikov rifles are popular in immigrant neighborhoods in the EU capital of Brussels..
How Much Allah Can the Old Continent Bear?
American author and journalist Christopher Caldwell recently published his latest tome, "Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West," ... he says ...

"It is certain that Europe will emerge changed from its confrontation with Islam. It is far less certain that Islam will prove assimilable...

When an insecure, malleable, relativistic culture meets a culture that is anchored, confident and strengthened by common doctrines, it is generally the former that changes to suit the latter"
Cultures in Conflict (On Muslim immigrants in Europe)
Caldwell writes...

"Muslim cultures ... have historically been either Europe’s enemies, its overlords, or its underlings. Europe is wagering that attitudes handed down over the centuries, on both sides, have disappeared, or can be made to disappear. That is probably not a wise wager...

Immigration is not enhancing or validating European culture; it is supplanting it."
Mark Steyn on why the fascists are winning in Europe
... in the room where they cook up European conventional wisdom, they could easily pin a sign on the door saying: “This Political Machine Creates Fascists.” ... politics evolved to the point where almost any issue worth talking about was ruled beyond the bounds of polite society... if the political culture forbids respectable politicians from raising certain issues, then the electorate will turn to unrespectable ones... You want to talk about immigration? Whoa, racist! Crime? Racist! Welfare? Racist! Islam? Racistracistdoubleracist! Nya-nya, can’t hear you with my two anti-racist thumbs in my ears! ... The problem in Europe is not a lunatic fringe but a lunatic mainstream ever more estranged from its voters.
Melanie Phillips, The clash of uncivilisations
To those at the bottom, who live outside the bubbles of wealth or ideology, the face of intolerance is all too easy to recognise. They can see the churches of Britain being steadily replaced by mosques, can no longer find a local butcher selling pork, or are being regularly intimidated by local youths declaring ‘this is a Muslim area’. They are in no doubt that they are watching the takeover of their country and civilisation...

Freedom can only be protected if its defenders are united. But with Britain’s collective brain turned to multicultural jelly, liberals are refusing to acknowledge the civilisational battle now under way and gathering pace.

The obsession with the ‘far right’ has cemented progressive opinion into its current lethal state of cultural somnambulism. Liberals must raise their eyes, raise their game and ask where this is leading. For there is far worse on the horizon than a nasty man on Question Time.
Greg Sheridan, East Timor plan lacks action and credibility
Gillard is emerging as a strangely weak and ineffective Prime Minister in foreign policy...

With nearly 6000 illegal immigrants arriving by boat so far this year, and with the government having no strategy to stop the boats, Australia stands in a precarious position. We seem just about to embark on the disastrous European policy, which is now tearing Europe apart, of accepting a large, illegal Muslim immigration.
Not totally strange, she and Rudd are not that far apart. And Big Kev did promise to bring the spirit of Europe down here:
The European Union of course does not represent an identikit model of what we would seek to develop in the Asia Pacific.

But what we can learn from Europe is this – it is necessary to take the first step.

In the 1950s, sceptics saw European integration as unrealistic.

But most people would now agree that the goal of the visionaries in Europe who sat down in the 1950s and resolved to build prosperity and a common sense of a security community has been achieved.

It is that spirit we need to capture in our hemisphere.

Our special challenge is that we face a region with greater diversity in political systems and economic structures, levels of development, religious beliefs, languages and cultures, than did our counterparts in Europe.

But that should not stop us from thinking big.
That's the spirit of open borders.

Gillard shares the same affliction as Rudd: she has no identity. She cannot defend Australia on subjective grounds i.e. because we desire to remain homogeneous. And her brain has been pickled by the ideology of non-discrimination, so she is blind to the consequences of diversity. She is the emotionally-paralysed and brain-dead leader of the lobotomised party.

File under: ominous non-debate.

  1. Caldwell also wrote: The unimaginable disaster of the Holocaust haunted every discussion of morality or policy… This made an ideology of anti-racism … the more or less official state religion of Europe.

    That's why the west is on a suicidal course. We're still paying for ww2.

    Peter Brimelow said the same: There is a sense in which current immigration policy is Adolf Hitler's posthumous revenge on America.
