- We Americans remain deaf, dumb and naive as to the onslaught
of Islam in America. Because immigration 'built' this civilization, we
think it remains wholesome, normal and needed. We think millions of immigrants
stampeding into America share our values, our language and our excellence
in education. We assume everyone enjoys spiritual and religious similarities
that can only enhance America.
- Up until 1965, that emotional paradigm 'worked' as 150,000
immigrants arrived annually from Europe. They couldn't wait to speak English
and couldn't wait to become Americans. Most engaged a Christian spiritual
foundation. We numbered a mere 194 million at that time.
- But the late Senator Teddy Kennedy changed the dynamic
in 1965 to include 1.2 to 1.5 million immigrants annually from over 150
countries. They piled into America while adding 100 million within 40
years. Hundreds of thousands of them, right out of the third world, had
never seen a toilet, shower or lavatory. They lacked education. They
enclaved and they remain entrenched in enclaves in major cities around
- Quite naturally, Americans flee such areas, which allows
more enclaving with gross examples such as Detroit, Michigan.
- Few Americans understand that out of the next 100 million
people added to this country by 2035-a scant 25 years from now-over 70
million will be third world immigrants. If that doesn't send a chill up
your spine, you may be brain-dead, but still breathing.
- When Muslims began migrating in huge numbers in 1990,
they entrenched themselves in enclaves, and today, no matter how much you
hear from the main stream media telling us how Muslim immigrants have successfully
melded into the American mainstream-that cannot be farther from reality.
One look at Detroit, Michigan; Freemont, California; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
Houston, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois and dozens of other
cities see a growing separation of Muslims from Americans.
- To give you perspective, a member of the Dutch parliament,
Geert Wilders gave a speech on Islam in New York.
- "I come to America with a mission," Wilder
said. "All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger
looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the
final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and
present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America
and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the
scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the
last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation
or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe? Patriots from around
Europe risk their lives every day to prevent precisely this scenario from
becoming a reality.
- Lecture in four parts
- "First I will describe the situation on the ground
in Europe," said Wilders. "Then, I will say a few things about
Islam. Thirdly, I will talk a little bit about the movie you just saw.
("Fitna" exposing Islam; Google this 10 minute film to view.)
- "The Europe you know is changing. You have probably
seen the landmarks. The Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square and Rome's ancient
buildings and maybe the canals of Amsterdam. They are still there.
- "But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks
away from your tourist destination, there is another world, a world very
few visitors see and one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook.
It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.
- All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire
Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even
seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police
as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless
tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or
slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many
street corners! The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be
hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled
by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are
mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks
for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street
by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.
- "There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe.
With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European
city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church
in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
- "Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim:
just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the
majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded
by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among
boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can
no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig,
and that would be an insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and
Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam
gays are beaten up exclusively by Muslims.
- "Non-Muslim women routinely hear "whore, whore".
Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations
in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised to
avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot;
the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can
in many cases no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England
Sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many
neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.
Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels,
because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in
record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World
- "A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live
in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25
percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now.
Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.
- "Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would
not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.
But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported
that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than
their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide
attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third
of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. A Dutch
study reported that half of Dutch Muslims admit they "understand"
the 9/11 attacks.
- "Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this
is how we give them respect. Our elites are willing to give in. To give
up. In my own country we have gone from calls by one cabinet member to
turn Muslim holidays into official state holidays, to statements by another
cabinet member, that Islam is part of Dutch culture, to an affirmation
by the Christian-Democratic attorney general that he is willing to accept
Sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet
members with passports from Morocco and Turkey.
- "Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior,
ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance
workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its
uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. Some prefer to see these
as isolated incidents, but I call it a Muslim intifada. I call the perpetrators
"settlers". Because that is what they are. They do not come to
integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their
Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers."
- You may find Wilder's first part of his speech a bit
chilling or emotionally disconcerting. As you have seen throughout this
series on Islam in America, it's also occurring here in America. Europe's
descent into the Dark Ages of Islam rolls along a few years ahead of ours,
but it's only a matter of time.
- You will hear the remainder of Wilder's speech in the
next column. He lays out Europe's future and ours too, if we allow endless
