Europe’s downfall – The Figures Speak for Themselves

An original translation by DK Liberty with much thanks!

[It should be noted that it was Jyllands Posten that first published the Danish Cartoons that sparked the global Islamic reaction which should have been enough for anyone not convinced by 911 that Islam was a problem to our freedoms and systems of thought. But they are a major Danish media organization and are not a counter-jihad site. Publishing this article in that paper then has a greater degree of significance. Ed.]

From Jyllands Posten:

By BENT JENSEN, PROFESSOR, DR. PHIL., Frørup

Europe is going under right before our very eyes Bent Jensen is told by a cultural historian in an interview which has now become this article.  The conclusion is that it is the voters who have laid the foundation for this disaster.

“We are living in the end times,” says my friend the cultural historian. “I’m serious, Europe’s days are numbered. I am glad that I won’t get to experience the final, last convulsions before it’s over. It won’t be a pleasant sight. My wife and I are preparing our children to emigrate. ”

“Have you gone mad?” I reply. “All is going really well! Europeans have never had it so good. We have both a wealth and freedom that is historically unique. ”

“This is true,” concedes our culture historian. “Our parents and grandparents and many generations before them have created these unique free, orderly and prosperous societies. But yours and my generation have put everything at risk. And the damage we have caused is irreversible as societal researchers have told us. We have passed the point where the any change in the nations of Europe can be reversed. Now we can only document and try to explain how and why just one generation of Europeans have managed to squander 1,000 years of culture. ”

“But that’s hysterical nonsense … ‘

“Permit me to explain,” interrupts my friend, “why the Europe that you and I grew up in, will soon be gone, replaced by something else which no European just a generation ago could imagine. A Europe which will no longer be recognizable, a Europe that is not Europe. ”

“The most basic factor is demographics. Europeans no longer want to reproduce themselves. There are born far too few European children, and the European populations are shrinking. The Europeans have lost THE most basic survival instinct.  It is a historically unique phenomenon. A quarter of German women – in the big cities one-third – don’t want to have children.  In Germany several million Turks will instead double by the year 2020. According to UN and EU forecasts, Germany’s current population of over 80 million will shrink to just over 60 million in 2050, of which Turks and other Muslims will constitute an ever-increasing proportion until they form a majority before the turn of the century.  Italy will shrink by 20 million to 37 million and Spain with 10 million to only 28 million. It looks even worse in the Eastern European countries including Russia and Ukraine.

The second major factor is immigration. European countries have historically received and integrated immigrants from other European countries: Germans, Swedes, Jews, Huguenots, have immigrated to Denmark and have been of benefit for the country. But todays’ immigration from Islamic countries is on a completely different scale, and they will not be integrated. They take their religion with them from the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan and live isolated in their own settlements, so that they are not affected by the host country’s culture. And their numbers are growing explosively because they produce far more children than Europeans do. In France, with six million Muslims and in the Netherlands the Muslim population has more than doubled since 1980. Are you aware that many German cities have a Muslim population of 30-35 per cent.? The same applies to British and French cities. In Germany in 1960 there were 7,000 Muslims and today there are four million! A large number of German cities will have a Muslim majority within a foreseeable time period. 160,000 highly skilled Germans leave the country each year. In Brussels and many other European cities, more than half of all newborns are Muslim. In Birmingham there are more mosques than churches.

The destruction of the European welfare states is the inevitable result. They are a natural magnet for millions of people from the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere. Here you can achieve a standard of living that is far better than life in the partially failed states from which they come. You have the right to housing, free kindergarten, medical care and education. Recently, one could on television get acquainted with a Palestinian woman with seven children who has lived for 21 years in Denmark without having to learn to even read and write – and probably without ever having worked.

They represent a huge burden and they use up a disproportionate amount of our social budgets. We know from National Bank estimates that only those immigrants who have an education when they arrive are a net economic gain; those who are employed from day one; and who leave the country again when they are no longer working.  Instead, Europe receives millions of people without any education.  Many of their children are likewise uneducated.  This seriously hurts those who, through hard work, have built up the country and who have financed the cornucopia of welfare benefits that we enjoy.  Do you remember that there was this case where there no longer was enough money for the old folks in Esbjerg to have a festive Christmas Eve at their nursing home?

And we are just at the beginning. Because of the violent demographic shifts that will continue to happen in this population mix, with ever fewer Europeans and more and more Muslim immigrants and descendants, European economies will shrink. There will be a smaller gross per capita. The proportion of productive and innovative people will fall, while the share of low or negative productivity will soar. At the same time the social funding needed in order to uphold police, justice and prison service will continue grow. Taxes on the productive will by necessity have to be raised in order to finance the de facto destruction of the European welfare states.

A third crucial factor is democracy, or rather the democratic rule of law that we, as Europeans, are justifiably proud of.  It gives citizens a freedom and rule of law, which is unknown in the lawless countries where immigrants and their descendants come from.  Countries that are police states, ruled by clan lords, with corruption and repression. Democracy is a fine form of government and the rule of law a precious asset, but its institutions are created by and for democratic and law-abiding citizens. The rule of law will come up short before these huge and growing challenges on a broad front, in the situation Europe is going through as a result of Islamic mass immigration.

A fourth factor is the network of laws, directives and international conventions to which European politicians have spun their states into which prevents us taking action against even flagrant crimes. Or so say European politicians at least.  It may also be that they simply use the conventions as an excuse not to do anything that really matters and that would make a difference. Apparently it is not even possible for European states to prevent illegal immigration. It is also, according to the politicians, not possible to expel violent criminals who do not even have Danish citizenship.  Even terrorists and persons who are wanted for murder, are being protected by the Conventions. People who go to war against Danish soldiers are not to be touched either.

Now and then the politicians make cosmetic changes only to be, immediately by experts and media, exposed to a barrage of accusations claiming that we are devoid of decency, humanity and charity. The time has also long since come where Islamic immigrants can be a decisive factor in the outcome of elections to the European countries’ parliaments. Recently, politicians themselves staged a pathetic march against terror where representatives of the Muslim terrorist regimes participated – a nauseating and quite meaningless gesture.  For politicians seemingly have no wish to do anything serious about the threats that they could avoid if only they wanted to.

The media is a fourth problem. Especially the electronic so-called public-service television channels which have evolved into becoming almost a kind of political parties, albeit without a popular mandate, but which they, in their own right have taken as the right to set current political agendas and who determine what should be and what which must not be discussed.  And since all studies clearly show that these media are controlled by leftists, they create a permanent distortion of the public debate on serious social issues, including Europe’s downfall.

It is said that people have the politicians they deserve.  It is in any case voters that, at election after election vote for the politicians who by their reckless politics have laid the groundwork for the coming disaster and who actually do not want to do anything to avert the disaster.

And that’s why Europe is sinking right in front of our eyes. “

  1. Europe is doomed only if the Europeans refuse to fight for their land, their culture and their religion, if they will start to fight (as the various anti-Islam groups are doing) and continue to fight through the coming civil wars Europe can be saved. It won’t be the Europe of the late 20th Century but will probably be closer to the Europe of the late 19th Century.

  2. With every new Islamist atrocity, our politicians will become increasingly mocked and ridiculed and laughed at….for being so out of touch. Perhaps then, when they have become clownish nitwits, they will finally wake up and help us mount a proper and shrewed attack on Islam. It’s our only hope….that they have a finite tolerance for embarrassment. Alas, no sign of this yet.

  3. U.S. officials say 6,000 ISIS fighters killed in battles (CNN, Jan 22, 2015)
    http://edition.cnn.com/2015/01/22/politics/us-officials-say-6000-isis-fighters-killed-in-battles/index.html

    “The coalition fighting ISIS has killed more than 6,000 fighters, including half of the top command of the terror group, U.S. diplomatic officials said Thursday.

    The number of fighters killed has not been publicly discussed before but was disclosed by the U.S. ambassador to Iraq Stuart Jones, who told Al Arabiya television earlier in the day that an estimated 6,000 fighters have been killed. Jones said the military effort was having a “devastating” impact on ISIS.

    The estimate was calculated by U.S. Central Command and finds ISIS fighters have been killed in Iraq and Syria by coalition airstrikes, according to a U.S. military official. CENTCOM has kept a running estimate of fighters killed, but has not made it public.

    U.S. intelligence estimates that ISIS has a total force of somewhere between 9,000 to 18,000 fighters. However, it is also believed the group can draw on thousands of other fighters whose loyalty shifts and could muster a force upwards of 31,000 total.

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, would not confirm the 6,000 deaths estimate, instead saying “thousands” have been killed.

    On whether the body count is a sign of progress, Hagel said, “It’s a measure but I don’t think it’s the measure.”

    “I was in a war where we did body counts and we lost that one,” Hagel said, referring to his service in Vietnam….”

    • Islam as a social disease has at its disposal (literally) any unlimited number of jihadis.

      The sad reality about Islam’s killers is this; Because Islam makes a continuous claim of religious legitimacy, Islam, as a system, can rely on a huge, unpaid, unseen, unorganized, individually acting, empowered to act, widely distributed group of highly motivated devout believers who are willing to kill in order to keep Islam the way it is.

      These devout believers in reality represent an unconventional unseen phantom army. An army where no one needs orders and each soldier knows exactly what to do. An army where no one is really in control. An army as deadly as any on earth.

  4. Revealed: How new Saudi King ‘raised cash for Mujahideen’, has a son who went into space… and will need a ‘shadow king because of his wandering mind’ (dailymail, Jan 23, 2015)
    http://dailym.ai/1y93EVq

    “… Prince Salman, along with the United States, collected funds to support Afghan Mujahideen fighters – who took on the Kabul government and eventually the Soviet forces in the country.

    Dr Chris Davidson, a Reader in Middle East Politics, told MailOnline: ‘Prince Salman was indeed one of the fund collectors but clearly in agreement with US policy at the time.

    ‘The Mujahideen ended up fighting Soviet soldiers, but they were funded primarily to get rid of the Kabul government, which was trying to introduce socialist structures, secularisation, promoting the rights of women – which were against the Saudi vision of a Muslim majority population country.’

    This occurred before factions within the group were ‘radicalised’ and formed into the terrorist outfit Al-Qaeda during regional conflicts such as the First Chechen War in the 1990’s.

    Between 1998 and 2003, he headed a committee which funded the Palestinian Mujahideen around £53million, according to the book Understanding Islamic Charities – edited by John Alterman and Karin Von Hippel….”

    • At times you don’t have a choice between good guys and bad guys, during the time when we were supporting the Afghan fighters the USSR was the worst danger in the world, a nation that was as hungry for world domination as Islam is, we were in more danger then most of you have been taught and were helping any group that would fight the Soviets.

      • You raise an interesting point, Richard.

        There hasn’t been much coverage of that period. At least I haven’t seen it. So complicated, choosing among several bad alternatives, I need a clear exposition of the geopolitics around the contemporary Afghan wars.

    Here’s a couple of links to a man imprisoned for criticizing Islam.

    I love his quote, but not his politics……apparently something of Nazi

    He said:

    In his defense, the Dane said that it was “an absurd accusation and a violation of [my] human rights.” He pointed out that he had written most of the postings in his own language, saying “If I had wanted to speak to an Austrian audience, I would have written it in Turkish. Of course, in the past I would have used German.”

  6. Woman calls self ‘servant of Allah,’ faces sentencing for ISIS plan (CNN, Jan 23, 2015)
    http://edition.cnn.com/2015/01/22/us/colorado-woman-isis-sentencing/index.html

    “A Colorado resident who pleaded guilty to wanting to join ISIS jihad has adopted a new Muslim first name and prepared a new hairstyle for her sentencing Friday. Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, now prefers to go by Amatullah, she told CNN in an exclusive jailhouse interview the day before her sentencing.

    The name means female “servant of Allah,” she said. Conley initially took the name Halima after converting to Islam. She will become one of the first Americans sentenced for conspiracy to support ISIS. Conley attracted national attention last year after authorities arrested her at Denver International Airport. Investigators said she told them she was going to Turkey to await word from an ISIS member in Syria — a man she met on the Internet and planned to marry.

    According to court documents, she intended to become a nurse in an ISIS camp. She is a Colorado certified nurse’s aide…”

      • I think the war started a while ago. When I first started fretting about the Islam thing, there was an average of one or two fatal Muslim terrorist attacks somewhere in the world, every day. Now, there are considerably more than that. And back then, they weren’t attacking the Canadian Parliament buildings or doing hits on newspaper editors. A year from now, they’ll probably be doing full ten-man Mumbai-style attacks all over the world. I believe this is simply the face of the war we are in. And I believe we are well into World War III right now. It’s just going to keep growing and growing and growing until we either respond or we are overwhelmed.

      • I agree with Chris the war has started but it is still in the phoney war phase, the direct action time is coming and probably within the next year or two. It takes time for enough people to get convienced that direct action are the only way to survive.

  8. I wish commentators would stop going on about the terrible birth rate of Europeans. This is a consequence of not needing to breed loads of children so a few survive. The demographic disaster, using up the planets precious resources lobby, always fail to mention that White Populations in Europe are stable, or slowly falling, quite naturally. They fail to mention this because it implies that the precious ethnics: Blacks, Asians, and Orientals, are over breeding like flies, and if there is a resources disaster it’s these races that caused it.
    The European birth rate is only a problem if you allow the excess population of ignorant, backward ethnics from the Third World in, in an attempt to solve a population problem, that isn’t really a problem at all.

    Still the times they are a changing, as they say, we’re not done yet.

      • @Yucki………

        Be careful…….

        That’s the slippery slope that lists into the swamp of racial superiority……that’s also eugenics……..and that………..is National Socialism.

        But………

        If you want to see “racism” look to many groups like the Chinese in North America, many, the vast majority loathe to intermarry with other races. The Hindu’s and Sikhs are just as fond of their own color and culture, and who can blame them? Your race, your colour, your culture and your history, it defines you, it is your soul.

        Its only since the Frankfurt School unleashed “political correctness” and its rabid whelp, the poisonous bitch “multiculturalism” that only White, Judeo Christian Western Anglo Saxon Protestants are to be diluted, vilified and scattered to the four winds……..how quaint, the very culture and race that built the magnificent house of the West, is now shown to the door, relegated to the poorhouse and the dustheap.

    • The problem with your POV is that a socialist/welfare state cannot pay benefits to its aging population without the replenishment of youth into the work force. So, if the native Europeans decrease their population through lack of breeding another, more prolific, group must be brought in to keep up taxes so that benefits can continue to be paid.
      If you say to the elderly or even the middle aged “we need to cut your benefits/future benefits because our population is decreasing and we don’t/won’t have the tax revenue necessary to maintain these benefits” there is a huge uproar (Grandma will have to eat cat food or be thrown off a cliff.)
      Unfortunately for Europe those they have imported are not as productive, educated or motivated as natives and actually require huge benefit support from the state.
      The same can be said of the US who has allowed millions of poorly educated persons into the country without significant skill sets to replace those that are retiring and transitioning from tax payer to benefit collector.
      You cannot have a welfare state without replacing workers that will pay the freight.

      • That is the PC myth we are force-fed. In England, 50% of male Moslems and 75% of their females are unemployed and living entirely on welfare hand outs (plus what they earn illegally – pimping out underage white girls, drugs, importing sex slaves from Eastern Europe, taxi driving, dog fights etc).

        The state also hands out to other migrants vast amounts of money to bring minimum wage work up to a significantly higher level, including handouts to their children not resident in the UK.

        Plus the drain on our health care system and social housing.

        We not only don’t need these migrants, but their very presence is destroying our country, our system of governance, our prosperity and inevitably, our identity.

        • Perhaps you missed the point of what I was saying. That is that immigrants into the west ARE NOT replacing native workers in job skills or motivation. Hence, our countries are going broke paying out benefits rather than having the tax base replenished.

      • Don’t forget that the ILLEGAL immigrants into the US are allowed in over the howling objections of the vast majority of the citizens.

      • As someone approaching retirement in about three years time I broadly agree with you. I have paid national insurance and taxes for over forty years, and have a right to expect my state pension. What irks me is the number of Moslems in Britain who either paid little or nothing into the scheme and are now milking it. Many Moslem men arrived in mid life, and took up cab driving (if they worked) meanwhile, Mrs Moslem remained at home without learning English and popping out little Moslems regularly. When they reach pensionable age (until recently, 60 for women) Mrs Moslem who has never worked gets a full pension. Then Mr Moslem retires, and he too gets a pension. They have between them contributed little to the system, but take a lot out of it. In addition, as they were first cousins, some of their many progeny wil have physical/genetic/disorders, and they will spend a lifetime bleeding the NHS dry with complex medical needs. They in turn import their first cousin from backward Pakistan, and the cycle starts again. What Europe needed to do was only allow migration from nations with a similar culture, perhaps coupled with scaling back the worst excesses of what was an overly ambitious welfare state from the start.

      • We have hordes of this filth in the UK, I work in a small town and even there they have taken over several streets near the centre, and the roads are choked with cabs and dirty old men in grubby pyjamas on the way to raise their arses for the moon god. Hopefully I will live to see the explosion when Europe finally strikes back to defend itself and this filth is flushed away down the drain of history, I am sickened by their arrogance and air of entitlement.

  10. Oh and by the way……..

    There are many Europeans who are looking to not only Muslims and their handmaidens within all levels of government as the catalyst for their destruction but they are also looking to Jews, some Jews…….who are heaping up the European funeral pyre.

    • I wish I had a dollar for every time someone had sent me this clip as if it was meaningful. Yes, she is a great example of a leftist colostomy bag. The fact that she is Jewish may or may not play into it but as it is ALWAYS THIS clip that people use to prove Jewish complicity in the defacto genocide of Europeans and European culture, it should mean that Jews have zip to do with it as there are litteraly thousands of clips of leftists of the post-Christian variety and of course, muslim.

      Having said that, there is no shortage of idiot left wing Jews. None as bad as that one however. She is pure Frankfurt school, sadly, as were may of the actual Frankfurt school people. But most of them are the same kind of useful idiots that you see at any Democrat party convention.

      It would be interesting to see if she still feels that way as this clip is old. But either way, I would encourage her to be in the line up for the next round of Nuremberg trials we so desperately need right now.

      • Eeyore,
        Colon cancer is a disease that runs in the family. Colostomy bags buy time. As such, they’re valuable.

        They don’t deserve to be called “leftist”.

      • I don’t go for the anti-Semitism bit at all. I studied history at university, and was amazed at the way the Nazis were so desperate to hate the Jews that they could not make up their rabid minds whether they were Bolsheviks or Capitalists. The truth is that the Jews are, like Christians and aetheists, to be found in both sides of that coin, and no worse than any others for it.
        The Jews are being abandoned by the European and American Left so that the crucial Moslem voters will stay with them, and Jews have as much as we have to fear the filthy piratical creed and its followers.
        We should keep our powder dry and ready for the coming conflict, and Israel will be on our side.

        • …and that conflict will come much faster and much more ferociously than pretty much anyone would expect I think. Japan’s militarization, Chinese and Russian opportunism in the face of the most impotent US administration since before Thomas Jefferson, Iranian manipulations to create global conflict in order to bring back the Mahdi, meaning that they will encourage all these actions as well as North Korea, the nuclear psychotic wild card.

          This is how history is gonna go.

          10 years ago when I first started looking into this stuff and saying what I thought was the case, I was branded horrible things and threatened regularly. Now, when I discuss these issues its at least 50 50 that people will look at me with gratitude that someone is speaking openly about what is increasingly obvious.

          Soon, people will look at me is if I was some kind of babbling idiot for saying out loud what everyone knows is obviously true and not an issue even worth discussing. Shortly after that the missiles will start falling. Not because we are ready but because the enemy is.

          A couple of times I posted that WW3 = WW1 + WW2. but I think I may add the cold war to it now.

          It still looks that way. Classic European geopolitical conflicts, antisemitism on turbo cause of Islam, Turkey restarting the Ottoman Empire in all ways except in name so far, but photos of Erdogan with staircases lined with Ottoman Soldiers are gracing newspapers everywhere.

          It is really quite stunning. And the one thing I think we all can and should do to at least increase the odds of preserving our civilizations, our cultures and freedoms is to re-normalize freedom to criticize religious authority and religion and especially Islam. At least that. Then perhaps people will remember what we are fighting for and who the enemy is.

  11. Stopping child benefits to Muslims is a way forward, accompanied by sterilisation/vasectomy of problem groups. If that is not done soon the low white birthrate will become a problem.

    • When President Reagan got Congress to limit the welfare increases to two children only the birthrate among the welfare dependent dropped and many ending up getting jobs, then Clinton took office and pushed the welfare rules back to the pre Regan rules and the birthrate increased the work participation dropped and government spending increased. Some politicians will continue to support the destruction of the west through the use of welfare to increase the number of people who vote for them.

      • In Britain there are rumblings on the Tory Right that child benefits might be capped at two children. The first to wail will be the inbred Pakistanis and sundry other Islamic filth who leech our welfare state.
        The Left have little chance in the coming elections, so hopefully it will become a reality, and then we can hopefully turn the screw in other ways such as slamming the door and banning Halal meat and new mosques and foreign born imams.

  12. @Everyone…..

  13. To the Youth in Europe and North America
    Message of ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of The Islamic Republic of Iran
    In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful
    To the Youth in Europe and North America,
    The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.
    I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.
    I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West.
    Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies.
    The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable.
    By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought?
    You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam.
    My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from.
    I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.
    Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media?
    Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries?
    I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders.
    Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths.
    Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.

  14. I do not think Europe will fall. The mood is slowly shifting, the masses are slowly starting to awaken. There will be dark times ahead, decades of it, perhaps most of this century. War. But the fighting men of the west will, in the end, be victorious.

    • You are right the west will win the war, there will be nations in the west that disappear and others the appear but in the long run the west will win. You are right about the length of the war, although you may be optimistic about how short it will be. The big question is will civilization survive?

  15. The “we wouldn’t be able to afford the welfare if we didn’t allow in all those nice Third World Taxi Drivers and Gardeners myth).
    Putting the argument about overly generous welfare payments, or what welfare from the state should cover, I just don’t buy it.
    We’ve had as a nation thirty odd years to store funds for the demographic blip that is the post 60s baby boom. Even then, it is just that a blip, the bulge will die out after a few years as the elderly recipients of this state largesse cease to exist.
    The argument assumes that there’s no money being spent of other things which could be diverted. Like pointless Middle Eastern Wars, as an off the cuff example, or maybe generous payments to Third World Dictators, in the guise of foreign aid. What about stopping the massive waste in the public sector, maybe getting rid of huge swathes of it.
    I’m sure it could have been done.

    Still we’ve got blacks and packi’s to bankroll us now, what could possibly go wrong?

  16. The above cultural historian will discover, as I did, that you cannot emigrate away from this problem it is happening everywhere. Only the countries with sealed borders will survive a little longer. Anyone with an ounce of brain can see that mass-immigration from poor overpopulated countries to rich and successful countries, will overburden and destroy these developed countries. It is open-borders globalization with no plan. As predicted above we are heading for disaster. The social systems such as education, health and welfare will be overloaded and collapse along with the monetary system that finances and ensures the smoothe running of a well ordered state. It is easy to imagine the chaos and violence that will ensue when law and order finally breaks down. China will survive intact if it keeps its borders closed and continues to persecute the Muslims and fledgling democrats. I guess it was democracy and our ideals about freedom that did us in. Actually good old fashioned racism could have saved us but that was unthinkable, and (in the symbolic sense) how does a pacifist defend himself against someone without conscience intent on killing him. The answer is he can’t, he must die. And this is the pickle we have gotten ourselves into. Our principles of brotherly love have rendered us defenseless against those that have another consept of brotherhood or that lack compassion completely. It is bitter, we own the greatest most powerful most destructive armed forces ever and cannot unleash them because the enemy has become domestic,

  17. Let’s face it we have become an endangered (sub) species in Europe.

    Reducing the global human population should be top of the agenda at the UN and other international organizations. There are too many people on this planet. Every nation should be concerned with reducing the size of it’s population, especially poor countries. Science cannot solve all problems, so sooner or later vital resources will run out and everyone will suffer. (Along with the other life forms). Modern wealthy democratic societies began to experience in my opinion a healthy decline in population. The weak-minded irresponsible elite chose to see this as a problem and found out all sorts of daft arguments like; aging populatios, who will fund future pensions, we will not have anyone to empty the rubbish bins and so on. As an inconvenient out of control immigration was occuring at the same time, lies were invented about the benefits of immigration and the need for it. Where statistical data is allowed it shows that the opposite is the case, uncontrolled immigration damages the economy and culture and produces civil strife. As you all here very well know.
