Death of Two Cultures

 

The European Christian culture has been failing with so few attending to her needs that there has not even been an attempt at life support. About the only Eurocentric population which shows signs of life is the Evangelical Christians in the United States, and that culture could succumb to a numbing disease if indifference should they not continue to be led by honorable leadership. The initial signs of the disease of indifference and eventual collapse of the fold come when collecting monies for new buildings or redesign of the main chapel outweigh the spiritual which has simple needs and disdains frills. Christianity, on a brighter note, is flourishing in much of South America and southern and central Africa and there are few signs of the crippling disease afflicting these populations. Also at risk is Islam which is being overcome by violence which has largely been Muslim on Muslim violence except on the fringes where the Muslims fight or otherwise subvert any society to which they immigrate. With their increasing numbers their preaching and demands slowly evolve and change slowly advancing from immigrate to infiltrate to demands and finally to conquer and cleansing the population of the unbelievers and those deemed not pure enough in their faith. This was laid out by an entry in the CIA, “The World Fact Book, 2007.” We located this information in the below chart from a report by Edward Cline on the Family Security Matters website as part of an article titled, Jihad by the Numbers which was published on July 3, 2008. We have shortened the presentation to fit on a graph we drew adding a visual representation and the full thesis can be read at the above link. Anybody wishing a more detailed report with additional information including the actual nations at each stage from that date in 2008, most of the numbers are obviously dated but they give a starting reference point. The chart is below. The reality is the Syrian refugee policies of the Western World is a form of civilizational suicide. Importing refugees would be laudable but there should be restrictions such that the refugees the Western Nations are taking into their bosoms completely trusting that there is no possibility of anything untoward occurring is insanity. One reasonable limitation which would be justifiable would require that males between the ages of twelve to forty must be accompanied by their family, be that a wife and children or parents with siblings. People older than forty would be far less likely to be active in Jihad and thus no threat to the society as a whole. But allowing unchecked numbers of men of military age without families is not allowing refugees within the borders as much as permitting the forward advance of a military invasion to establish bases of operations.

 

Jihad by the Numbers

 

Some of the results of allowing normal immigration have been demonstrated in Paris with the riots each summer and the practice of setting vehicles alight burning into the night. These riots filled not only the poorer suburbs of Paris but also Marseilles and other French large metropolises with large Muslim neighborhoods. These styles of events have spread further to Amsterdam, Malmo, Berlin, Frankfort and other cities in Germany, the Netherlands and throughout Scandinavia. The only places spared thus far have been Switzerland and the Eastern bloc nations who refused to allow refugees to enter unless they were proceeding on to Germany, France or anywhere but within their borders. The other nations spared thus far have been those like Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and others facing economic hardships severe enough that their benefit payments to citizens have been drastically reduced or temporarily, or maybe permanently, terminated as a measure to attempt to regain some economic footing and be able to climb out of their debt traps. Another limit which should be implemented is if these plans were to permit refugees from the horrific fighting and devastation plaguing Syria, then only those who can prove they are from Syria should be permitted entry. Is it unfair to demand that refugees from a particular civil war prove they actually resided where that war is taking place. Allowing also Afghanis, Pakistanis, Iraqis, Iranian and who knows where else to also take advantage of a plan to assist Syrians is only asking for trouble. Europe does not have the economic power to import an additional group of people who will begin to represent upwards from fifteen percent to as high as forty percent of the population, it simply can not and will not work. This also goes for the United States and especially Canada whose population is nowhere near that of other nations her size. What would be wrong with demanding that Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States plus Kuwait take in an equal number of refugees as has Europe? Jordan and Turkey most certainly cannot afford to take in vast numbers of new refugees despite there already being thousands in refugee camps pitched on their borders with Syria and already causing distress and other problems. Even with Israel quietly providing additional electricity and water to Jordan dedicated to assisting with housing and providing water and essentials for the growing hundreds of thousands who have fled to Jordan, the refugee camps collected near the border are overflowing and are out of room. Just what the Middle East needed was more refugees in camps, that has worked so well in the past. All this and Saudi Arabia which erected an entire tent city with airconditioned tents which has bathrooms and other amenities has simply refused to assist their Arab brethren (tent city pictured below).

 

one hundred thousand airconditioned tents Saudi Arabia to accommodate pilgrims on Hajj each has kitchen bathroom fireproof and never intended for refugees

 

There is a simple reason why Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States or Iran with its recent inflow of billions of dollars due to the Nuclear Deal are refusing to accept even a single refugee and Iran is even providing some of their own to infiltrate Europe, and that is the key word, infiltrate. This is the beginning of the end for Europe as it has been known and it may already be too late to save all of Europe, but whatever areas can be salvaged, those efforts need to be implemented immediately as time is limited. The frightening thing is the coming United States elections, for President and Congress, is vitally important and will decide whether the United States joins the bulk of Europe in diving off the high dive into an empty pool without the waters of liberty and freedom to catch their dive as these waters are going to be drained away as the civilization is sold wholesale to the barbarians coming through the gates. What makes all of this so desperately sad is the people could still prevent the complete collapse of Europe but because they have chosen hedonism and self-interest over having real families with children they have chosen the path to oblivion. Some use their work as their excuse for not having children, others are honest enough to come out and say that they do not want the “burden” of a family with children, life is so much more fun when all your money and time is spent on me. Europe and most of the United States are made up of the “me” generations. The original “me” generation was the baby-boomers but there were so many of them there were sufficient numbers still having complete families. The statistics on the Millennials are even more stark than they were for the Boomers and many claim it was the poor economic state of the world during their prime family years and now they are gone beyond that point where they could ever have sufficient children to replace their numbers, let alone grow the population. Economic indicators still are pretty much stuck at zero and that is another item which had best be on the next President’s and Congress’s urgent ‘to do’ list. The work which would be required will take fortitude and a new outlook on the job of Washington D.C. The idea they will need to wrestle with will be two-fold; first they need to reduce taxes, both capital gains and business taxes and second they need to deregulate the nation starting from the top. Once this has been accomplished they can move on to doing something which should have been part of their jobs all along, reducing the size, scope, numbers and impositions of the federal government. They need to empower the states and disempower the federal government making all but subservient to the individual states. They need to go through every inch of the federal bureaucracy and see if it passes the Tenth Amendment test. The Tenth Amendment reads;

 

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

 

It is a remarkably short and concise statement which basically states that the Federal Government is restricted in all things and if at all possible for the individual states or the people themselves are capable of addressing things, then it should be left to their discretions and Washington should steer clear. We call it the mind your own business and stay out of ours amendment. Should the federal government actually restrain itself and remain within the constraints of the Constitution, and especially Amendment X, the nation would prosper and the people would rejoice in their new found freedoms and also have the control over their lives returned to their neighborhood and not way off in Washington, which in reality is far, far away from anywhere which has even a modicum of reality. Until Washington leaves much if not almost all of ruling and running the domestic life in the United States and instead works to settle differences between the states when necessary and otherwise allows them to rule themselves and the people can choose which state best meets their dreams, demands and choices there will be dissatisfaction with Washington and distrust of politicians and feel their lives are beyond their control. Ask the average American what they desire from Washington in particular and government in general and they will likely respond be left alone to run their own lives as they choose. Once the Federal Government takes its responsibility for protecting the people from the evils the world may send their way, their assigned duties are complete. That is presumably the first and foremost job for the Federal Government and is its most sacred Constitutional responsibility. Other than this it is to settle differences between the individual states and aid each in learning from the more successful states but not to interfere or force any state into changing their means of expediting their affairs as long as they harm no other state. Instead the United States Federal Government had joined the Europeans who have decided that suicide is their best means of survival.

 

They watch as their numbers of citizens drop and drop while their schools and churches lie empty as if disowned by their populace and believe they can fill the void with refugees from the Middle East and North Africa and they are making a dreadful mistake. Their belief that they can replace their population with Islamics who refuse to assimilate and instead seek to replace their society with their Sharia is worse than misplaced, it is suicidal and they will be the most likely to suffer the greatest fall. It is a shame that their people will also lose all they have and possibly their freedom and then their lives unless they surrender their lives and souls to Allah, the very souls they know not that they have. That the current President of the United states has been importing “Syrian refugees” by the tens of thousands very likely without the approval of Congress, but then this President has had little use for the Congress. One of the candidates for President has promised those who back this importing of “refugees” that they will bring them in at a rate of at least five times the rate should they be elected. Many of the American people know not of this promise and almost as many probably know little or care about the consequences which will result. They do not spend their time worrying about such things; their lives take sufficient amounts of their time as they care for their families as they should. They have faith that their government, their Federal Government, takes care to protect their shores and thus their families. If only they know, if only they knew.

Geert Wilders Asks, “Who lost Europe?”

 

Geert Wilders is a Dutch Member of Parliament. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: “Who lost Europe?” Here is a speech by Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, given at the Four Seasons in New York, introducing an “Alliance of Patriots” and announcing the “Facing Jihad” Conference to be held in Jerusalem. This conference may be the critically most important planning session for the free world if it is to survive the reemergence and reawakening of Islamic conquest. Islam claims Israel and Europe are the monsters, the colonialists, when Islam itself has been the worst offender of colonialism spreading out in waves over North Africa and the entire Middle East and into Asia and Western Europe and initially Spain and Portugal and Southern France before being slowed and finally beaten back from Eastern European Iberian Peninsula. Islamic aim is, as Geert Wilders points out somewhat more diplomatically, to subjugate all of humanity and wipe from the human race the opportunity to question, to dream, to discover, and finally, to make any progress with which to advance into a future filled of light instead of the darkness of the strict and smothering cold wet blanket that is Sharia.

 

Mr. Geert Wilders

Mr. Geert Wilders

 

Dear Friends,
Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

 

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem. The Europe you know is changing.

 

You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.

 

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners.

 

The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

 

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseilles and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammad is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

 

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

 

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

 

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

 

In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

 

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

 

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhardt Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

 

Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays. The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.

 

We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey. Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators settler’s. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers. Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

 

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Gandhi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammad himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

 

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means ‘submission’. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is Sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

 

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz. Second because it is a democracy. And third because Israel is our first line of defense.

 

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

 

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

 

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islam as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.

 

Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America – as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.

 

Dear friends, Liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe, American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe’s children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.

 


We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know. Please take the time to read and understand what is written here, please send it to every free person that you know.

Turkey Tanks Attacking Kurds, not Islamic State so Much

 

Turkey announced that their armor supported troops rolling southward into Syria with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claiming they are there to confront Islamic State and Syrian Kurdish rebels. This appears to be somewhat absurd to use the problems caused by the Islamic State in order to destroy as much of the Kurdish forces before retreating back north of the border claiming whatever excuse necessary to excuse their not confronting Islamic State. This is a mission to weaken the Kurdish Militias, Peshmerga, in order to make the Kurdish vulnerable to the al-Nusra Front, Islamic State and whatever other Arab forces are able to take advantage of the Turkish weakening and degrading of the Kurdish ability to defend themselves. This attack by Turkish forces is all about Erdogan’s detestable hostility towards the Kurds and has no footing in reality and is fully due to the visceral desire to destroy the Kurds from spite. The Kurdish forces in Syria have always been fixated facing southward in order to face threats from al-Nusra, al-Qaeda aligned terrorists, Alawite forces of the Syrian Military, and, of course, against Islamic State (formerly ISIS or ISIL). At no time have the Kurdish Militias in Syria taken any hostile steps against Turkey and have little if any connection with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party or PKK (Kurdish: Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê ‎) which the Turkish government has labeled as a terrorist group.

 

This has more to do with the success of the Kurds in the first of the last two elections where they forced Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) to not have an outright majority and thus require making a coalition with another similar Islamic Party. Erdogan took the alternative solution of preventing any coalition from forming thus forcing another election. Between the elections mysteriously numerous Kurdish leading officials and some Kurdish and other minor party candidates met untimely and mysterious ends. The ensuing second election proceeded in giving the AKP a clean majority. After there being no government or other investigations into the mysterious deaths and other strange events, there soon was an entirely different set of investigations to carry out. There was a coup in Turkey presumable brought about by a mysterious Imam who once was allied with Erdogan but they fell out as Erdogan gained in strength and no longer needed his former “friend” and political ally. Now this former ally, Imam Muhammd Fethullah Gulen, could pose a threat to Erdogan despite residing outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, in the twilight of life and became the next great threat. President Erdogan is cementing his power so as to become President for Life, thus the Gulen coup which came apart almost before it got started. There were numerous reports of “Gulen coup allied pilots attaining missile lock of the aircraft carrying Erdogan and having this lock for over five minutes and never firing a single missile or other armament at the aircraft. What coup worth its salt does not shoot down the reigning President’s aircraft when given the opportunity? We’ll tell you; the kind of coup which is engineered and executed by the reigning President who is feeling particularly vulnerable after not winning an overwhelming victory in an election and having to resort to back room politics to win the forced second election balloting. He used goon squads to assure his win in the second election while also intimidating the Kurdish population severely diminishing their numbers voting in the second elections. Then he had a coup and within twenty-four hours of putting down the coup there were more than six-thousands of judges, prosecutors, lawyers and other legal professionals arrested and another six-thousand military personnel arrested and a predicted additional many thousands still on lists to be arrested and an equal number to be placed under investigation. Now there is an armor supported assault into Syria to vanquish the ability of the Kurds in Syria to defend their people leaving them vulnerable to the Islamic State. Meanwhile there will not likely be much, if any, assault by these Turkish forces against the Islamic State as was promised as the main reason for the crossing into Syria. This is highly unlikely as the Turkish forces could very well have their hands full just engaging the Kurdish Militias.

 

Turkish Tank Rolling Into North-Eastern Syria

Turkish Tank Rolling Into North-Eastern Syria

 

Much of the reason for this attack and numerous other nasty little surprises coming between now and the middle of January of next year is because President Obama’s terms in office are coming to a close and the United States may become a greater presence in the world after the election no matter who wins. Erdogan knows he will be losing his BFF (best friend forever) in the White House and gaining either an unpredictable crazy person who might send troops against you if you upset them on a bad hair day or Donald Trump as the next President. Either way, crazy hair Donald or crazier hair Hillary, you will be looking at somebody far more willing to use the United States military power than you have with President Obama. We have all heard endless tales of how unpredictable and erratic Donald Trump can be but the truth is Hillary Clinton is far more vindictive, ask any of the women who played with Bill and then told, and who has a long list of corpses showing up in her past, think Ft. Marcy Park and the Vince Foster enigma in a puzzle wrapped in lies which the police still have no clue or Ron Brown and air crash anomalies. Donald Trump does not have a trail of dead realestate developers left behind him in a train of tears as does Hillary with political problem people or just problem people. Then there are the select names Hillary has called those who fell short of delivering on campaigns such as reported in the Guardian that she called Paul Fray, her husband’s campaign manager at the time, a… well, we’ll let you look this one up if you are unfamiliar with it. Just for added information, the man was not and is not, to the best of our knowledge, Jewish. So much for even tempered and if given a choice on who has the “football” following them everywhere with the codes to launch sufficient nuclear weapons to end the planet as we know it, I would much have a jolly crazy person who jokes about the size of their “hands” than a vindictive person who cannot even control their tongue, let alone who knows what else.

 

Along the line of the mice playing while the cat is away, or simply asleep at the switch, China is building a naval base in Djibouti fairly close to the major United States post in Africa and is considering more such military ports placed at focal points around the globe. China has even stated in their budgeting that they hope to become a naval force who rules the waves, or at least the commercial shipping lanes. Their claim is this base has been established to fight the piracy in this area and should they succeed in this endeavor as announced, they will receive many thanks from nations around the world who have used the Suez Canal and faced the pirate menace in these waters. We also have the Chinese Island building into the South China Sea and Russia expanding their naval docking abilities in the Mediterranean Sea and using a military airfield in Iran to cover the Middle East under the pretense of fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The world could look even stranger and the United States will now face facts on the ground around the globe with adversarial forces and nations who will have taken full advantage of a President asleep at the controls while spending time attempting to cripple adversaries at home, even some in his own party. The problem is the United States will not suffer alone from the adversarial role played by President Obama against the United States historic alliances and capabilities leaving a world vulnerable without any real guidance. At the end of World War II the United States all but neutered the militaries of the allied powers as if their militaries were the reason for the war and promised they would protect Europe from all threats. Well, that appears to have come to an end and it will be interesting no matter who wins the coming elections as both have stated they are want to use American military force unless there is a driving threat which must be met. The definition of such a threat is different between Hillary and Donald but that can wait until closer to the election when people might actually care. Suffice it to say that one of them is not traditional American force projection in their thinking.
