A note from Fjordman:
Hello from Fjordman. I notice that even at Jihad Watch there are those who question whether the Eurabia thesis presented by Bat Ye'or is correct. I have spent a considerable amount of time checking it, and in my view, her conclusions are perfectly sound. Louis Michel, at present a member of the European Commission, the EU's unaccountable government, told the Belgian parliament that the European Union will eventually encompass the entire Mediterranean basin, including North Africa and the Middle East. The EU is actively working towards this goal on a daily basis, and spends large amounts of money on promoting the Euro-Arab Dialogue. The most dangerous aspect of this is how they rewrite European history books to erase any traces of the 1300 years of continuous Jihad warfare against Europe, Asia and Africa. The EU as an organization is so thoroughly corrupted by such pro-Islamic sentiments that it is simply impossible to fight the Islamization of Europe without getting rid of the EU. Here's an example, clearly encouraged by the EU, of an Eurabian art exhibition in Rome dedicated to celebrating a "common Mediterranean identity," whatever that is:The works of twenty-one contemporary artists from around the Mediterranean basin went on display in Rome exploring through experimentation and tradition the identity of the region. "This exhibition is an utopia, of bringing together united in dialogue the countries of the Mediterranean, with their wealth of history and culture, too often divided by tragic conflicts" explained Maria Teresa Benedetti who curated the show. The language of the artists on display in central Rome is experimental and seeks to launch a message which underlines the existing historic links between the people of this region, who all face onto a sea which should serve to unite different cultures who share a common if turbulent history. "There is no point in denying it, the idea of a common Mediterranean identity has been betrayed by centuries of history, of cruel wars, of tensions and fears" acknowledged the president of the Lazio region Piero Marrazzo in a statement. "It is certainly true that today, every day, it is betrayed by the difficulty of spreading out equitably resources and opportunities to all the citizens of the Mediterranean. "Yet there is a deep bond that united us. The light of democracy and dialogue - against the darkness of totalitarianism and intolerance. Building together the tools to fully express their common core will help consolidate the cultural, economic and political integration between the peoples of the Mediterranean" Marrazzo said.
