Islam, Immigration and the Death of Europe

Apr 24, 2018

As has been said, immigration without integration is an invasion. That is exactly what we find happening all throughout Europe. If foreigners enter host nations and do not seek to adopt the nation’s basic beliefs, core values and even languages, there can be no melting pot, but just a two-tiered society – for starters.

No nation can last long when masses of new arrivals from elsewhere refuse to fit in to the host nation, but instead make a list of demands to maintain their ideological independence while at the same time denigrating the country they have come to live in.

This is a recipe for disaster. And this has been crystal clear for decades now in Europe, with most nations there letting in countless Muslim immigrants with hardly any questions asked. An irrational and suicidal commitment to Political Correctness and multiculturalism has led to massive problems in so many European nations.

A refusal to fit in or learn the language, high unemployment levels, massive welfare bills, etc., are just some of the problems. Islamic no-go zones are common in many European cities, jihadist attacks are becoming routine, and an alarming increase in anti-Semitism are all the new normal in Europe.

Over the past few days I came upon a dozen chilling headlines that speak directly to these realities, and demonstrate what a basket case Europe has become because of its reckless immigration policies and its utter disbelief in its own history, values and culture – especially its Judeo-Christian heritage.

Consider these dozen doozies. Let me offer the headline, the date, and the opening paragraph or two of each news item. I will begin in northern Europe and roughly head south as I examine these various examples.

Taxes will rise in Sweden as half of all “new Swedes” remain unemployed after eight years
18 April 2018
Chief forecaster of Sweden’s Economic Research Institute, Ylva Hedén Westerdahl, points out that unless more immigrants enter the labour market in Sweden, taxes will have to rise. Sweden has a “rights-based” welfare system, which she calls “generous”, which includes healthcare and education.
Hedén Westerdahl has stressed that it is required for people to contribute to the system otherwise the labourers will have an even greater tax burden. “It’s serious that we have these differences in the longer perspective. Once you stay out of the labour market for a long time, you are forced to live off benefits, something that leaves a toll on the government finances,” Hedén Westerdahl told news outlet SVT.
Nearly six out of ten of those currently enrolled in the Employment Service are foreign born whilst only 25 percent of Swedish residents have a foreign background. The gap between home-born and foreign-born workers’ ability to obtain work is only growing.

Almost 90% of refugees are still unemployed after living for 2.5 years in the Netherlands
17 April 2018
Refugees with a residence permit barely have a job, Dutch newspaper “De Telegraaf” reports. Almost 90% of refugees, who received their residence permit in 2014, were unemployed two and a half years later, according to figures from the Dutch statistics office CBS.
While 11% of refugees do work, a large majority of them still don’t have a full-time job. After two and a half years only 15% are fully employed. The group mostly consists of Syrians and Eritreans: Dutch migration researcher Jan van de Beek, tells De Telegraaf that a lot of migrants didn’t have decent education. According to Van de Beek especially low skilled jobs are unattractive for migrants because sometimes the benefits they receive are just as high as the income from a low skilled job. 75% of refugees come from one of those two countries.

Belgium: first Islamic state in Europe?
22 April 2018
The French acronym of Belgium’s ISLAM Party stands for “Integrity, Solidarity, Liberty, Authenticity, Morality”. The leaders of the ISLAM Party apparently want to turn Belgium into an Islamic State. They call it “Islamist democracy” and have set a target date: 2030.
According to the French magazine Causeur, “the program is confusingly simple: replace all the civil and penal codes with sharia law. Period”. Created on the eve of the 2012 municipal ballot, the ISLAM Party immediately received impressive results. Its numbers are alarming.
The effect of this new party, according to Michaël Privot, an expert on Islam, and Sebastien Boussois, a political scientist, could be the “implosion of the social body”. Some Belgian politicians, such as Richard Miller, are now advocating banning the ISLAM Party.

Rape crisis in Germany: women start arming themselves due to mass Islamic immigration
March 2018
German women have armed themselves with guns, “pepper spray is not enough,” they say. Most of the migrants who infiltrate Germany illegally come from Muslim majority countries where they practiced sharia law. In countries like Iran Saudi Arabia and Pakistan rape is the woman’s fault. Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a human being. Sharia law are incompatible with Western laws.

Merkel admits Arab migrants brought a new form of anti-Semitism with them
23 April 2018
German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday acknowledged the problem of anti-Semitic views held by Middle Eastern refugees and other immigrants from Arab nations. In an interview with Israeli broadcaster Channel 10 News, Merkel said that Germany is experiencing “new phenomena whereby refugees and other people of Arab origin that are bringing a different form of anti-Semitism into the country.”
There have been a number of anti-Semitic attacks by Muslim people in Germany in recent weeks, the latest of which saw a perpetrator attack a man wearing a Jewish skullcap in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district while shouting “Yahudi,” an Arabic word for Jew.

Germans: A Minority By 2060
23 April 2018
Germany has the highest percentage of immigrants of all the 27 EU members. Over 10 million people living in Germany today were born outside of Germany. That is about 12% of the German population, on a total of just over 82 million.
Most of these immigrants come from other European countries. The biggest immigrant groups are from Turkey, Russia, Poland and Italy. Germany is the second most popular destination for immigrants in the world after the United States. The U.S., however, has a total population of over 300 million, over three times as many as Germany.

France: Arrest of woman wearing niqab triggers five nights of rioting and millions in damages
22 April 2018
Last Sunday, on 15 April, a police patrol in Toulouse arrested a niqab wearing woman because she refused to show her face. In France a law adopted in 2010 states that no one in public spaces may wear clothing that hides their face. The event took place in the city’s migrant populated Mirail suburb and sparked five consecutive nights of violence.
Footage shows that the arrested woman is heavily resisting her arrest and she is shouting insults at the cops. In a matter of minutes, a group of protesters rapidly formed and forced the cops to throw tear gas grenades to disperse the crowd.

France sends backup to standoff between pro- and anti-migrant activists at border with Italy
23 April 2018
France’s Interior Ministry has decided to deploy reinforcements to an Alpine crossing where a group of far-right vigilantes has attempted to block ultra-left activists from escorting immigrants from Italy across the border.
On Saturday morning, a crowd of roughly 150 anti-immigration activists occupied the Col de l’Echelle mountain pass in the Hautes-Alpes region of France, in what they said was an attempt to block the “strategic point of passage of illegal immigrants” from Italy.

Somali migrant tries to set Swiss church on fire and causes at least 16,000 euros in damages
22 April 2018
On Thursday, a church in the Swiss town of Pfäfers was damaged by a Somali migrant, Swiss media outlet 20 Minutes reports. The St. Gallen police arrested the 28-year-old Somali after a short search of the area. Several cloths were lit on altars and wooden tables, in an attempt that looks like a way to set the church on fire.
Fortunately a man who saw the fire was able to extinguish it while alerting the police. Other church attributes were heavily damaged as well. The property damage is at least 20,000 Swiss Francs, which corresponds to 16,600 Euros. Police say the man is ‘confused’ and has been put in a mental facility.

Spain’s increasing migrant sex attacks rock the nation
21 April 2018
The golden, sunny Southern Coast of Spain is a huge tourist attraction, but it is also one of the main ports of entry for illegal immigration into the country and Europe. There are so many cases of immigrant violence in these regions which go almost completely unnoticed – understandably so, as tourism is one of Spain’s biggest industries.
On April 16th in Alicante, an Algerian man met a woman at a disco and then insisted she come home with him. Once in his flat, another three men appeared from an adjacent room and all 4 of them raped her. One of them then drove her to her home, whereby she ran away to the nearest open shop and made a call to the police. Hours later the four suspects were apprehended.
Just a day later in Algeciras, in Andalusia, which is run by the Socialist Party PSOE and is a main port of entry from Tangier, Morocco, an elderly lady was beaten violently and robbed as she arrived home at night. In a city which is almost a quarter Muslim, this is a common occurrence there. Cases like these go unnoticed or largely unreported.

The EU doesn’t need immigration to supply labour market. Millions of Greeks, Spaniards and Italians are unemployed
22 April 2018
There is a lot of talk about the labour markets in Europe. Ever since the crisis that started in 2008, there has been a constant interest in the topic. During the past years, with the recent flows of migrants entering Europe, labour markets were presented as an argument in favour of immigration from outside of Europe.
Briefly put, the argument is as follows; Germany has low unemployment, but also low birth rates. With Germany’s current birth rates their population size will decrease unless migrants take their place. It is deemed necessary that the country’s labour force remains the same size. That way it can pay taxes needed to sustain the ever increasing group of retired Germans. Hence, migrants should not only be tolerated, but basically welcomed as Germany’s saviours.

Greece: Clashes between locals and refugees turn Lesbos town square into battlefield
23 April 2018
Last night clashes broke out between locals and refugees on the island of Lesbos. The clashes started after locals tried to remove a large group of refugees that occupied the island’s Mytilini town square, LesvosNews reports. The refugees were protesting against the conditions in the local Moria migrant camp. At first local residents came together in order to support the two Greek officers that had been taken hostage by the Turkish army.
Later, the group of about 200 locals, marched against the migrants that were occupying the central square of the island for the last four days. Riot police were summoned to protect the refugees from the furious crowd of residents.
The occupiers formed two human chains with their lines being further strengthened by leftist anarchists who supported them. Police used tear gas against the locals in order to break up their lines and one of the residents threw a naval flare at the refugees. The mayor of Lesbos, Spiros Galinos, said the protest was a “spontaneous reaction”. According to him, as a result of the migrant crisis, the island “is carrying a huge burden”.

Wow, scary stuff. Hundreds more such headlines could be produced here, and I have done just that over the years. Europe is in a very bad way. Between jettisoning its own heritage which was the foundation of its greatness, and embracing a foreign and toxic political ideology, Europe is committing slow but certain suicide.

  • We have it, of course, in Britain as well but a lot of people here are waking up at great speed, and the backlashes are beginning. Our government has gone so totally off the rails, it is beyond belief…the daily exposure of porky-pies along with continued worship of all things islamic…absolutely unthinkable just ten years ago. What greatly bothers me is that even after we get the upper hand in Britain against our enemy(which we will), the thought of a massive Islamic continent right next door to us is too much to bear. There is only one answer and that is a full-scale battle. Nothing else will do.

  • @Chris I will continue to hope and pray to Jesus that the entire west wakes up and turns their hearts and minds back to Jesus. I’ve talked to some people that may believe it’s to late but i just gotta keep having hope that they’ll wake up.
