A Rude Awakening

At last, the mainstream media are beginning to recognise that Europeans have a dark, bleak future. Bat Ye’or has written much about Eurabia, warning us all of impending danger. I have written The Dawning of a New Dark Age. Many others have written, too, and have warned. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch springs immediately to mind.

Alas, the powers that be, hitherto, have been unwilling to take the tough measures necessary to stop this trend of increasing Islamisation. Not only that, they have made matters far worse than they need be by allowing mass immigration from mainly Muslim countries, and giving in to Muslims’ demands at every turn so as to appease the Muslim voters and garner more votes for their party. This is particularly true of the Labour Party in the United Kingdom. Again, we see the leftist, socialist agenda kicking in to destroy our way of life.

Working women have little time to have babies, and when they do have them, it is usually late in life, allowing time for one or two babies at most.

In our warped Western way of life, these days a woman being able to climb the career ladder is far more important for society than a woman who elects to stay home and be a full-time, caring mother. The result of these mistaken choices are beginning to become plain to see: We are losing our Judeo-Christian civilisation to the Islamic world. What Muslims once failed to do by force, they are now doing by silent invasion; and Westerners are sitting back and allowing this to happen.

A civilisation which is unprepared to fight for what it believes in is destined to perish; and perish Western civilisation will unless this whole process is kicked into reverse. The process can be reversed. But the will has to be there. The will and the determination.

Surely people can by now see what life will be like for us and our children when Islam becomes dominant. Women will become second class citizens. Gays will be executed. Apostasy will be punishable by death. Christians and Jews will be given dhimmi status, i.e. will become protected citizens in return for the price of a punitive tax called the jizyah. Adherents to all other religions, i.e. those who are not ‘People of the Book’, will not be tolerated.

Sharia law will be introduced, and henceforward, the whole gamut of harsh punishments for transgressions, minor and major, will be utilised: stonings for adultery, beheadings for crime, amputations for theft. Of course, because of the changing mentality of the people, honour-killings for women who bring shame on the family will become ever more commonplace.

What many Westerners fail to understand is this: There is no such thing as Islam-lite. Islam remains as Islam always was: unchanging and unchangeable; strict and harsh; supremacist and domineering.

We, all of us, have tough decisions to make about our children’s future. Do we want to leave a world behind for them which will enable them to live as we have been able to live: in freedom and security, free from religious harassment? Or do we want to cast all fate to the wind and let the chips fall for them where they may?

It is to be hoped that we will all opt for the former; after all, it’s the only sensible, responsible option.

People have to have something that they hold dear, that they are willing to stand and fight for to be able to fight against the cancer that is Islam. Muslims don't take their religion lightly. They WILL fight and die for their religion if they have to. People in the west, sadly, don't have anything solid anymore to fight for.

We can blame Islam's encroachment on us losing out western values, however, in my opinion, it was the west itself that worked toward chipping away the Judeo-Christian foundations of the Western civilization. Muslims didn't tell us to not pray in our schools, it was our government policies that put all that in place.

We have to sort ourselves out, we have to fight within ourselves, we have to realize we've lost it. We have to realize finally that the problems of the Muslim world aren't our fault but we are to blame for us not having anything solid to hold on to, to keep fighting for.

We have, over the years, created a society that is self-loathing. That is why it isn't surprising to me at all that Europe would be reasy, without a fight to hand itself over to a barbaric society like Islam's.

I think that's enough ranting out of me for today. Great article by the way.

Avenging Apostate,

I agree. It's been a process of some decades too.

Avenging Apostate:

Thanks for this great comment. It's much appreciated, as is your compliment. Again, thank you.

...in my opinion, it was the west itself that worked toward chipping away the Judeo-Christian foundations of the Western civilization. Muslims didn't tell us to not pray in our schools, it was our government policies that put all that in place.

How right you are! It's no longer 'cool' to espouse Christian values, the values which have given us so much; it is no longer 'cool' to talk about Christianity's superiority – everything today has become relative. All religions are supposed to be equal; all cultures, equally valid. But you and I and others on this forum know that this is not so.

We have, over the years, created a society that is self-loathing. That is why it isn't surprising to me at all that Europe would be reasy, without a fight to hand itself over to a barbaric society like Islam's.

Alas, many people do not understand just how barbaric Islamic societies can be. To live in an Islamic society for a while is to believe it. Seeing, as they say, is believing.

I fear for the future of the West in general, and Europe in particular. Many people are unable to imagine what awaits them.

History appears to be cyclic, civilisations rise and fall. Predators in the wild seek out the wounded, weak or sick animals and cull the herd of them, the healthy animals are usually let alone. Islam is just a predator. The West is very, very much in need of culling the herd. But the herd will survive, eventually replenish itself, and prosper. China has gone through this kind of culling experience, so has India and Europe, so has even the Islamic world during the ascendancy of colonialism.

I have just discovered your blog recently thru my visits to IBA, and I appreciate and agree with what I see here. I hope we will all soon move on to the action that is the logical outcome of our discussion. History is waiting for us to act, and so is the Maker of His story.

It's to be hoped that it will indeed prosper. There is little evidence of such a bright future at the moment.

I am unclear whether you mean this blog, or mine.

For this to happen, we shall have to change our leaders. The ones we have don't have any backbone.

Mark,

I was talking about THIS blog, Pedestrian Infidel, as being new to me, but I also have visited your blog as well. Just checked to make sure by clicking on the link you provided.

I'm not sure that I'm fully in agreement with working through this debacle of Islam's subversion of our society and culture by means of the so-called democratic process. Altho as an American, I am a Constitutionalist, it seems to me that if not here, then at least in Europe, Islam may have to be defeated by revolutionary, not constitutional, means.

Thanks for the clarification.

I, too, am not sure it's going to be possible to defeat Islam by democratic means. Democracy is a little too weak to deal with the onslaught of Islam, especially the kind of democracy we have these days, with weak leaders and an uninformed, pc electorate.

Sorry! That should have been Romanós.
