[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.]

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. “
