Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald discusses the crisis in Europe and the European unwillingness to face its causes:
"Ercan Yasaroglu, a sociologist who came to Germany from Turkey as a political refugee..." -- from this article
What kind of "political refugee" was that? Too secular for Erdogan, or too Muslim for the Kemalists? Only those who have jettisoned Islam and who, therefore, are fleeing Muslim regimes, should be allowed into Infidel countries. The word "refugee" should not be allowed to cover those whose belief-system is not merely an alien creed, but a hostile one, and who want to be, paradoxically, given refuge by the very Infidels whom they have been taught to hate (see Qur'an, see Hadith, see the history of the treatment of the non-Muslims, whether Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, and Other Non-Muslim).
No one has a divine right to enter into and settle in any other country. It is absurd for the Germans, as it is for the French, the Spanish, the English, the Dutch, the Norwegians, the Swedish, the Italians, to think that they have some obligation to allow in people from Muslim lands, carrying Islam, Sharia and jihad -- undeclared and overlooked by almost everyone – in their mental baggage. Some unpack that Islam right away. Some store it away and then bring it out when the occasion warrants -- when things are not going as swimmingly as they appear to think they should, then out comes Islam, as they find solace and an explanation for everything that is wrong. And there is no way of knowing when even the outwardly most secular of people who continue to call themselves Muslims (whether out of filial or civilizational piety, or a fear of jettisoning it altogether, is unclear) may turn to Islam, Islam, Islam as the Answer.
If "Islam is the Answer," Infidels have to be aware of what that must, sooner or later, mean for them.
The answer has already been given. The large-scale presence of Muslims in the countries of Western Europe everywhere has meant the creation of a situation far more unpleasant, expensive, and physically dangerous for indigenous Infidels than it would be without such a large-scale presence. The inability of many to recognize that truth prevents them from taking the minimal measures that, were they to be taken, could head off far more drastic action, or damage, later.
"Integration" is one more will-o'-the-wisp. It is based on the idea that teaching Muslims the languages and cultures and laws and mores and customs and understandings of the Infidel lands in which they have come to settle will cause them to become better citizens, more accepting of those laws, customs, and understandings. It is based on the idea that there is no real problem with Islam itself, with the tenets of Islam, with the model of Muhammad, with not only the teachings but also the attitudes and atmospherics of Islam, but only a problem of “ignorance.” There is no basis for such a hope: not in the texts, not in history.
It is one more attempt to avoid discussing the nature of Islam and of the uncompromising hostility that must exist between the two regions of the world, the Dar al-Islam (the lands where Islam dominates and Muslims rule) and Dar al-Harb (where Muslims do not yet dominate or rule, but eventually will). That hostility must also exist everywhere in the world, whether in Dar al-Islam or Dar al-Harb, where Believer and Infidel are found. This is not something fictional drummed up by those who wish Muslims ill -- it is in Islam, and not tangentially but centrally. And the history of Jihad-conquest and of subjugation of the non-Muslims conquered, offers, from Spain to the East Indies, and over a span of 1350 years, himalayas of evidence, decumans of data, that cannot be ignored.
It cannot be ignored in Germany, in France, in England, anywhere. The refusal to recognize this causes the confusion and chagrin. What German in the post-Nazi era wishes to support measures that appear “racist” or “xenophobic”? But that is because Muslims have cleverly presented themselves as akin to victimized Jews rather than as those bearing a totalitarian belief-system that, if imbibed in its fullness, shares the characteristics of Fascism or, in many respects, of Nazism.
This Infidel timidity, based on this willful misperception, must end. For if it does not, then either the Infidels will suffer much greater damage when the inevitable clash comes, or still worse, may be in no position to define their own civilizational legacy as it is leached away, and Europe slips into a slow death that is not even recognized until the final stages.
