Europe’s Loss

Eurabiaby Jon N. Hall    11/19/15
Just over a century ago, the nations of Europe were the Masters of the Universe. Europe’s far-flung empires girded the globe. Europe had the biggest, the best, and the most of everything. Then everything went to hell. The relatively peaceful century after Napoleon I ended with World War I, which led to WWII. Europe lost her preeminence and her empires, and fell under the protectorate of a former colony.

Europe was brought low by a century of horrible political leadership. From Asquith, Wilhelm II, Clemenceau, Chamberlain, the fascists, the traitors of the Euro-Arab Dialogue to the current bureaucrats at the EU headquarters, Europe’s leaders have been one godawful disaster after another. For every Churchill there’s been bunches of scoundrels, incompetents, madmen, and dummies with delusions of national, if not personal, grandeur.

After her blunders, failures, and sins over the last century, Europe is now a “fallen continent.” The most cataclysmic events of the last century started in Europe. The Holocaust was not so very long ago, yet naked anti-Semitism is again common in Europe. European Jewry is again under attack, and Jews are again emigrating. Europe seems to have learned nothing.

Europe is committing suicide. Europe has been working on that little project since 1914, however. But now Europe is getting really serious about suicide, as they allow millions of unassimilable Muslims to invade the homeland. Europe’s leaders seem paralyzed in stopping the influx.

The demographers have done the math, and it is almost certain that unless something is done, and soon, Muslim immigration and breeding, combined with the low birthrates of native Europeans, will transform Europe into a Muslim-majority continent in this century. Europe will cease being Europe. Europe will become Eurabia, a caliphate. The wellspring of Western Civilization will be gone, and it will be the greatest tragedy in history.

On pages 188-9 of While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam is Destroying the West from Within, American author Bruce Bawer quotes Danish journalist Lars Hedegaard on Europe’s dismal future:

“Unless they build up a cadre of intellectuals in Europe who can think,” he said, America “can kiss Europe good-bye.” The Continent’s future, he predicted, “is going to be vastly different than we imagine…. It’s going to be war. Like Lebanon,” with some enclaves dominated by Christians and others by Muslims. There will be “permanent strife,” and no one will have the “power to mollify or mediate… It will be more gruesome than we can imagine.” When the horror comes, he warned, the journalists who helped bring it about will “wag their heads and flee — and leave it to those who can’t flee to fight it out.”

Speaking to his party leadership on Muslim immigration, the late Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn said: “But this is about the future of your children and grandchildren …There is no other issue [p. 167].” Decent Europeans must then ask themselves: what has brought us to this dreadful point?

Europe’s problem is, yet again, its leadership. It is Europe’s leaders who have brought the continent, yet again, to the edge of the abyss. But the problem is not only its political elites; it’s Europe’s entire cultural elite: its intellectuals, media, academics, and even its clergy.

What Europe needs is a purge of its elites. If need be Europeans must do as the martyred Pim Fortuyn did: create new political parties. Europeans must vote out the establishment and vote in a new bloc of patriots who won’t sell them out, who won’t betray them. If Europe and its civilization are to be saved, Europeans must do whatever it takes, even if it means the breakup of the EU. And while they’re at it, Europeans need to start making babies again. (One can understand why young Europeans might be averse to starting families, given the future their elders are giving them.)

Outside the West, the world is a pretty bleak affair. But under a caliphate Europe will be a Hell, a Hell in which Europe’s children will live. Europe got yet another horrific look at Hell with the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13. That very night Canadian Mark Steyn dashed out this must-read article: “The Barbarians Are Inside, And There Are No Gates.”

If Europe is to avoid the New Dark Ages that Steyn predicts in his seminal America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, then Europe needs to act now. To spur such action, Europeans might reflect on what they’re about to lose.

The foundation of all that Europe will lose is Freedom. All else that Europe holds dear is built upon that foundation of Freedom. The entire history of the West can be seen as one long painful march towards Freedom. Only in the West can the Common Man have a little dignity and hope.

But Freedom can degenerate into license unless in the service of a higher cause. And that’s the core of the problem in Europe: nihilism. This is where the Islamists have an edge on Europe. They believe in something, and too many Europeans don’t. And with that loss of belief, Europeans are unwilling to sacrifice. So the Islamists sneer at Freedom; what good is it?

Besides Freedom, Europe is about to lose its identity. Will Europe’s new Muslim overlords allow Europe to keep the Vatican and Chartres? Or will they destroy them, like the Taliban destroyed Afghanistan’s ancient Buddhist statues or like ISIS destroyed the antiquities in Iraq and Syria? But perhaps Europe’s structures will be spared destruction if they are sufficiently Islamized. Maybe they’ll look better adorned with minarets. Or maybe their loss of faith makes Europeans indifferent to the fate of Christendom’s monuments.

One of the dearest things Europeans will lose is their self-respect. For after 1,300 years of success at fighting these guys, today’s generation will be the one that lost it all. But how will they have lost? In pitched battles? Or by doing not a damned thing? And if Europe is lost, today’s Europeans will not be worthy of their great ancestors nor the great civilization their forefathers bequeathed them. Their sin will be more egregious than Esau’s: rather than selling their own birthright for a mess of potage, they will have given away their children’s inheritance.

Europe will also lose, and let us not minimize its importance — fun. Fun has been an important element in Western advances, in addition to being a value in itself. But will the caliphate allow fun? Will they ban kite flying like the Taliban did? How would old Ben Franklin have learned about electricity without a kite?

And Europeans will also lose modernity, prosperity, and everything they cherish and take for granted. It will all be ground to dust.

Contrary to certain Muslim propagandists, the word “Islam” doesn’t mean “peace”; it means “submission.” Islamism is an ideology of submission, a breed of fascism, entirely totalitarian. There can be no accommodation, no middle ground, only submission. So, I submit: If Europeans can believe in neither God nor Western Civilization nor Freedom, they should believe in their children’s future. If they cannot do that, is Europe worth saving?

If Europe is to survive, Europe must change. Europe must get past the loss of the last century. Instead, Europeans should focus on pre-1914 Europe, the 2,500 years of glory and advancement. That is the heritage the whole world is about to lose.

    Remember that Islam divides the world into the City of Submission and the City of War — and they’ve been quite frank that Europe will be conquered by peaceful invaders. Some of the ordinary people (and populist politicians) realize this; incidentally, Pim Fortuyn was a social liberal whose concern was what the increasing Muslim population of the Netherlands would mean for the rights of women and homosexuals. But elite opinion, there as here, refuses to see this for various reasons. This makes The Camp of the Saints a very prescient book.

  2. Anniel says:

    And now my lovely Syrian friends, who came to America seeking medical help for their beloved daughter, who have assimilated in many ways, who do work and pay taxes, are on the receiving end of hatred from Americans, some of them former friends. What becomes of them when the murderers come to their home? Probably the same thing that would happen to you and me. The blood lust of the invaders really knows no bounds.

    Our “leaders” here are ready to give it all away, too. Mark Steyn has always been good at the crystal ball stuff, a real “seer” for those willing to listen.

    This article is frighteningly real.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      If there were only a small number of Muslims and they therefore assimilated, there would probably be no problem. Unfortunately, many Muslims naturally go to heavily Muslim communities, which increasingly become part of the City of Submission — and even if the adults are reasonable, far too many children will see the rest of the country as part of the City of War.

  3. Kyra Nielsen says:

    A lot of people can not comprehend that there are multitudes of people who want them dead. They may lock the doors of their homes, have fences around their yards, carefully lock their cars at the mall. Yet, they refuse to see the necessity of well protected borders for the Country. The mess we are in began in the 1980’s with Edward Kennedy’s use of his family name to pass disastrous legislation. Those who were not aware in those days (or unborn) have not seen the slow destruction of everything America once stood for. It wasn’t perfect, by a long way, but it was the best this Earth has ever had. Freedom is gone. It has become so distorted as a concept, that I fear the descent into chaos has begun.

  4. Philip Wilson says:

    Are–are you against anti-Semitism? Your third paragraph implies that you are, but that seems inconsistent with the rest of the text.

    Your concerns about Muslims are very, very similar to concerns various Christian ethnicities have historically had about Jews in their territory, or even other Christians of a different sect, loyalty, or language.

    I see that you are an American. Of course you are. In your country, Jews have generally been insiders, and accepted as part of the ruling class. In much of Europe, they are as hated as any Muslim, and possibly even more resistant to assimilation. And of course in some Muslim-dominated cultures, Jews are hated for the same reasons.

    It is normal for American Christians to pat themselves on the back for being tolerant of Jews and Gypsies, and deplore the race hatred levied against such peoples back in Europe. But Europeans who try and stamp out the Gypsy and the Jew are doing just what you here tell them to do to the Muslim.

    You don’t seem to get it.


    • Timothy Lane says:

      I take it you either have not read the various articles here about the nature of the religion of Submission (which is what Islam means), or have chosen to close your eyes to it in order to preen yourself for your religious tolerance. How many terrorist acts are committed in Europe or America by gypsies or Jews? You’d probably have to go a long way back to find any. (Well, there was the murder of a German embassy official in Paris by Herschel Grynszpan in 1938, which supplied the excuse for the Night of Broken Glass.) By contrast, this month we have seen a daily cascade of Muslim terrorist atrocities.

      And terrorism may be the least of it. Look up the Rotherham gang rapes, or similar statistics (such as the explosion of rapes in Scandinavia as Muslims become a significant minority population there). Look at the honor killings, at Muslims rioting over cartoons about Mohammed (as a result of which, few newspapers or magazines will publish anything of the sort, an extreme act of self-censorship available to no other group). Submission is, by its very nature, incompatible with freedom and Western civilization, at least until there’s a MAJOR reformation of Islam. And there’s no indication of anything of the sort anywhere on the horizon.

      Before getting into any discussion on this post, I would like to lay out some statistics regarding Muslim and Jewish populations.

      Country / Muslim Population / Jewish Population

      France 4,704,000- / 475,000-
      Germany 5,119,000- / 118,000-
      Belgium 638,000- / 30,000-
      Denmark 226,000- / 6,400-
      Greece 527,000- / 4,500-
      Netherlands 914,000- / 29,900-
      Norway 144,000- / 1,300-
      Russia 16,379,000- / 186,000-
      Spain 1,021,000- / 12,000-
      Sweden 451,000- / 15,000-
      Switzerland 433,000- / 19,000-
      Ukraine 393,000- / 63,000-
      U.K. 2,869,000- / 100,290-

      Totals 33,343,700- / 1,060,390-

      The above numbers are from:

      1. “The Future of the Global Muslim Population as of January 27, 2011” by Pew. The stats for for 2010.

      2. “American Jewish Year Book 2014”. Stats are for 2014.

      The difference in populations is staggering. It is immediately clear why Europe has such huge problems with lack of assimilation by Muslims.

      In much of Europe, they are as hated as any Muslim, and possibly even
      more resistant to assimilation.

      Please be specific.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        I hope the above numbers present a stark picture. Now I want to present an even starker one.

        Estimated number of Muslims in the World

        1,600,000,000- That’s 1.6 BILLION

        Estimated number of Jews in the World

        14,000,000- That’s 14 million.

        Which figure is larger? Which group do you think would be more difficult to absorb into the USA or Europe?

        Which group bases its religion on a book which calls for unending war against the infidel until the world is conquered for that religion?

        Which group has produced members responsible for thousands of terrorist attacks around the world over the last few years?

        Sorry for being rhetorical, but I want to clearly present the actual state of affairs as they now stand.

        • Timothy Lane says:

          This month has seen a daily Muslim terrorist atrocity, all over the world. I would think even Philip Wilson noticed them, but there’s no limit to the willful blindness of politically correct liberals.

  5. Timothy Lane says:

    Doug Giles has a nice article on Town Hall today discussing the future of the West if it fails to see what the Muslim invasion means long-term. He caps it with a vicious parody of “Imagine” (unfortunately, a much more accurate one than the original idiocy). The link is:
