On Sunday June 10, 2007, Avi Davis of the American Freedom Alliance managed to hold one of the most successful international conferences ever held by a civil society. Billed as Â“The Collapse of Europe, the Rise of Islam and the Consequences for the United States,Â” 300 speakers and attendees were treated to one amazing experience. Since I was the moderator on one of the panels, several speakers, who travel the world as a profession speaking about such things, confided in me that this was their best conference ever.
Speaking at the Conference were the heavyweights in the fight – Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Ibn Warraq, Daniel Pipes, Mark Steyn, Henryk Broder, Leon de Winter, Douglas Murray, Phillipe Karsenty, Claire Berlinsky, Arnaud Dotezac, Greg Davis along with radio and television personalities Dennis Praeger, Hugh Hewitt and David Horowitz and many others.
The conference clearly defined the tragedy that is multiculturalism and how Islam is using the weak European bureaucracy and left leaning institutions like the media and the political class to slowly but methodically introduce the cult of Islam and the ShariÂ’a law into their societies. That such assimilation has been preordained by a 1970 pact with the Arabs to exchange oil at a favorable price for letting Muslims immigrate in great numbers into Europe, and for Europe to take the Muslim side in international dealings with the Arabs against Israel.
The effect of the Islamic invasion upon America, as well as Europe, was covered at length. A limited participation session was held on Monday. It was confined to the speakers, moderators and a small contingent of guests, while Avi focused on what this group of heavyweights could do to alert the populations of Europe and America to the dangers of the Islamic invasion.
Because this is a group dedicated to a civil society, the conversation centered on specific cases and the legal recourse that can be used to counter the Muslim use of our laws to undermine our culture. Dotezac, Pipes, Steyn, de Winter, Broder, Karsenty, Murray and Warraq lit up the dais with positive advances as well as the obstacles in their efforts to stop the advance of Islamic culture into Europe and America.
The conference, in general was a great initial step towards marshaling the forces of the good in civil society in order to counter the advancing evil. Contrary to popular belief, not all religions are good and not all are equal to other religions. Islam is one promoted by the left as a Â“religion of peace,Â” but in reality is headed by a God that believes in killing non-believers.
That makes Islam not a true religion but an ideology which demands the death sentence for you, should you depart from it or its rigid demands. Islam meets the standard FBI definition of a Â“cult,Â” in which the allegiance of its devotÃ©es is not to America but to their ideological group, Islam. It is hardly a Â“religion of peaceÂ” Â– it is more appropriately designated as a Â“cult of death,Â” in which suicide bombers are elevated to Â“sainted status.Â” We all need to pay attention and assist those like Avi that are leading the charge to counter the plague that is upon us.
