My European experiences with Islam

Final reflections on the state of Europe

After 5 and a half weeks, I have finally come to the end of my travels around Europe. In seeing first hand many of the major capitals of Europe that have experienced significant Islamatization, I believe I am in a better position to assess Islam’s influence, in a Christian/ secular dominated part of the world.

In London, Rome, Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam among many other European cities for sure, the negative influence of Islam is obvious.

A constant throughout these cities, is the substantial presence of thousands of young Muslim men, who often loiter and spend time around the major city centres and tourist attractions. Unlike much of the rest of their societies, these men often seem in no apparent rush to work, or in fact achieve anything for that matter, which on the surface suggests that there are major strains placed on welfare services. In some cases, migration, can indeed have positive economic effects, in enhancing and complementing an existing workforce. But when, for instance, a gargantuan 1.1 million migrants move to Germany, from an entirely contrasting religious, cultural, and economic background, combined with Germany and similar countries’ generous welfare systems, it is inevitable that huge problems in Europe will emerge.

Aside from the drain on welfare, the attitudes held towards women held by many of these Islamic immigrants, is truly appalling. While not all, many of these migrants will stare, make provoactive comments, stalk, and generally intimidate women, including my girlfriend. I believe that these attitudes are Islamically informed, through the concept of modesty. These migrants, as well as European born Muslims, are taught that it is a duty for women to cover their hair or body, to reduce inflaming the passions of men. This idea can act to imply, that is the responsibility of women, to cover themselves up, in order to avoid the possibility of becoming victims of rape. In a Europe that is predominantly non-Islamic (for now at least), and devoid of much Islam’s backward and outdated code of dress, it is no surprise, that as Muslim immigration has surged, so too has the rate of rape.

Moreover, the threat of terrorism, is ever growing. November witnessed the Paris terror attacks, which led to the deaths of 130 innocent civilians. Whilst the death toll is diastrous, the implications extend far beyond the casualities, and families and friends that were affected. Throughout Europe, there is an overriding sense of unease, with a noticeable tension among much of the European population. I believe this has a psychological impact on Europeans that is seldom discussed. This is not a war that has a defined and established end. It is a situation which features Europeans living alongside among particular sects of the Islamic community, many of which are born in Europe, that showcase open and complete contempt for Western values and democracy. When New Year Eve’s celebrations in Belgium are cancelled due to security fears, and a train station is evacuated in Munich, the result eventuates is the existence of a continent on edge.

Rising anti- semitismhomophobia, as well as worsening attitudes towards apostates, and the increasing encroachment of Islamic ideas about blasphemy laws, consolidate the already incontrovertible evidence about the influx of political Islam in Europe. The majority of Muslims may not express desires to spread insidious and barbaric practices, but the influence of the political ideology of Islam, which seeks to impose its influence upon the world, is undeniable.

Clearly, the strain placed on Europe’s welfare system, the deplorable views held towards women, the impacts of terrorism, as well as the worsening situation for apostates, homosexuals, Jews, and those adjudged guilty of Sharia blasphemy, showcases a struggling and weakened Europe as of 2016.

But not everything is bad news, and their have been encouraging signs of a European resistance. I have been an supporter of Geert Wilders for a number of years, and I have seen his popularity ever growing, as witnessed in his receiving of the award Dutch politician of the year. France, in the aftermath of the Paris attacks, began stripping Islamist dual nationals of their sovereignty, deployed the militiary in civilian areas, and cracked down on many radical mosques. Favourable election results in Poland, and Switzerland further indicate that a Europe exists that demonstrates to some extent a resolve and determination to preserve European values and traditions.

There is no doubt that Europe is in deep trouble, and in some ways damaged irreversibly by political Islam. Yet, there are signs of hope, that Europe can largely retain its free and democratic way of life. Nonethless, this is far from a certainty, and I believe that the clash of civilisations, and the battle of ideas that is currently taking place in Europe, is set to further intensify in the future, with the stakes set to increasingly heighten.

  1. We have to do something about the annihilation of our civilization. Nobody seems to be concerned, like people in Sweden (see whyweneeddemocracy.wordpress.com). They invade our countries, our cultures, our neighborhoods. In their countries they kill Christians, burn churches, kill each other. What we do? NOTHING? If we do NOTHING, our children will live under permanent threat, without FREEDOM! Why we have this mess? Because politicians elected under the disguise of democracy – representative democracy to be exact – make undemocratic decisions. What we need is democracy. A system where there are no political parties, no prime ministers, where people like you and I decide every day what kind of legislation we should have, what and how much money we should put into the common purse, how we should spend it, what police should do, what foreign policy should be. When we let world affairs be run by elected politicians, who between elections can do whatever pleases them – nothing is going to change.

    We are brainwashed by mainstream media and politicians into thinking that the representative democracy is democracy and is the best sociopolitical system. This is a big lie! If it is the best, why we have what we have?

    It seems that the representative democracy has outlived its usefulness. It was OK, when not too many people were educated, when the access to information was limited, and the only way to maintain the legislation was by assembling in confined spaces and through face-to-face deliberations (parliament). Now we live in the XXI century, we have information technology, we can talk to each other like here – Australians with Canadians. Why the main-streamers want to preserve this dysfunctional status quo? Why people who see things are ostracized?

    Who will see that the Emperor does not have clothes?

    WE NEED DEMOCRACY, my friends!

    We have to DO something about it!

    1. Which would you rather have a democracy or a republic? A democracy is in essence mob rule — whatever the majority says goes. In a republic, individual inherent rights are upheld regardless of what the majority wants. Think about this old adage — a democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner; a republic is a well armed sheep contesting the decision. But to have a republic means the people have to remain vigilant. Because of the apathy in the US amongst the majority of the population, the US has lost our republic, morphed into a wealth elitist corporate oligarchy where our representatives could care less about individual inherent rights. There is a dreadful problem in the US as well as Europe I must agree. It can only be changed when people realize they can change it and muster the courage to do it. Brainwashing has run rampant with many falling victim to it. It’s difficult to change that but we must keep trying.

    2. I think that the apathy is the result of many people feeling hopeless and meaningless in the present system. In democracy we do not have to participate in every political process (understood as problem definition, prioritization, finding solutions, implementation) – just in the layer of our choice. In democracy, there are no political parties, people just participate in various layers, such as health care, education, foreign policy, etc. All layers participate in allocation of common resources. There are no leaders, everybody has a share of governance. Information is stored and processed in independent depositories to prevent hijacking or manipulation. The executive and legislative branches of government are supervised by the legislative layers. The scope of layers is dynamic; can be local, regional, national or global, depending on the scope of issues under consideration. The time scale is continuous, so the issues can be taken care of any time, depending on priorities. In the present system issues (policy platforms) are deliberated during election campaigns, having secretive lives between elections. That’s why we have had proselytization of crippled democracy to Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, etc. As a byproduct of sharing our sociopolitical system, we have promoted the rise of ISIS.
      Democracy means public oversight of public affairs. That’s all.

  2. Great Post, Freedom! Since you have visited these areas and seen firsthand what is taking place, it has to bring home the very fragile condition of nations that accept large numbers of Muslims into their society. I would like to contact my editor about your post from a first hand account to see if he would consider running your observations to our readership, if that is acceptable to you.
