STUDY: CLEAR MAJORITY OF EUROPEAN MUSLIMS PRO-SHARIA FUNDAMENTALISTS
BreitBart ^ | 21 Dec 13 | Gatestone Institute

Posted on 12/27/2013 5:02:58 PM PST by LSUfan

The majority of Muslims in Europe believe Islamic Sharia law should take precedence over the secular constitutions and laws of their European host countries, according to a new study, which warns that Islamic fundamentalism is widespread and rising sharply in Western Europe.

The "Six Country Immigrant Integration Comparative Survey"—a five-year study of Moroccan and Turkish immigrants in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Holland and Sweden—was published on December 11 by the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, one of the largest social science research institutes in Europe.

According to the study (German and English), which was funded by the German government, two thirds (65%) of the Muslims interviewed say Islamic Sharia law is more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.

Three quarters (75%) of the respondents hold the opinion that there is only one legitimate interpretation of the Koran, which should apply to all Muslims, and nearly 60% of Muslims believe their community should return to "Islamic roots."

Eventually this will bring on a religious war within each country that will be very similar to the things we see happening in the mideast....car bombs, suicide bombers, etc.

And very very violent and bloody.

Its been happening that way since about 643 A.D. and nothing has been done to change it.

The biggest change is we’ve given the radicals a virtual monopoly on oil. They are using that money to buy influence world wide.

A minority of muslims have lived in Europe, mainly Britain for hundreds of years moving from territories in the Empire.

I don’t think, however, it was a problem until recently. What’s changed with the muslims or their hosts?

A few years ago I read of a nationwide survey done in Britain of the nation's moslems.In that survey it was found that two-thirds of Britain's moslems approved of the 9/11 atrocities and half approved of London's 7/7 bombings.

Somebody posted an article here that 7 or so of 10 babies in Britain are now born to non-British parents. Imagine an effect of this in just 15 years.

There is a tipping point in terms of population percentage, in which they will become more demanding of society to bend to their whims.

Keep importing them Europe. You’re being sold out by your rulers and soon, if not already, the enemy within will be unstoppable. ( same for USA just a couple of years behind the EU in this suicidal race is all )

I think this will eventually be true, especially when Muslims start to get to 30% or more of the population. The interesting thing will be to see how bad it get before Political Correctness is pushed to the trash heap. Or is it so entrenched that the host will allow him/her self to be sacrificed to its tenets?

Methinks it will be a close call. But Westerners have shown that they can be very, very good at war.

Instinctively, I would think that Muslims who emigrate to Europe would be more liberal (in the classic sense) and more supportive of Western values.

If the European Muslims want Sharia, just imagine the mindset of Muslims who stay in their homelands.

Definitely puts the lie to the fantasy of “moderate” Muslims, anywhere.

In France, Muslims vote 90% Socialist.

I will guess that many Socialist Europeans tolerate Muslim outrages because they know they can count on Muslim votes in the next election.

They will never fit into Western societies. They will be a drag on any economy they are introduced into. Why import them?

RE: “But Westerners have shown that they can be very, very good at war.”

Unfortunately, there are only two countries Europeans hate enough to fight a war with:

The United States.

And, Israel.

_________________

The collapse of the Ottoman Empire. For all its faults, they were a unifying force in the region. With their penultimate implosion in 1926, Arab nationalism and religion became intertwined to a degree no one could have foreseen.

Politics and religion fed each other and ultimately merged to create a mix of political and religious extremism - a Moebius strip of fanaticism. There’s far more reasons than that; the Iranian Revolution of 1979, the seizure of the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca by a would-be “Mahdi” and the foolish way the Saudis reacted to in the aftermath, the various Arab defeats at the hands of the Israelis, the list goes on and on.

But I’d say the collapse of the Ottoman Empire is the triggering event that started a century of unrest in the region, which has spread. Folks in the Middle East have long, long memories - they may forgive from time to time, but they never forget; a grievance from 150 years ago may as well have happened last month.

An observation on my part; the current Islamic year is 1435. Where was Europe in 1435? Europeans were fighting religious wars until the conclusion of the Thirty Years’ War in 1648. So......they have a ways to go yet until they chill out, and I’m pretty sure they will. Endless internecine warfare is not a practical solution, and the Islamic world will figure that out eventually.

I’ve been saying for many years now, perhaps a decade, that I expect I will see concentration camps in Europe in my lifetime.

The only question is Who will be running them?

I’m not at all happy to be making that prediction. I am but a realist.

They behead their captives unless they are good for ransom, either monetary or political.

I’ll never understand how anyone could support this. Half of this country are willing to leave their kids and grandkids a world where they will become muslims or be beheaded.

Most of that (alarming) number (if true) would actually be more from Eastern European parents rather than Asian/ME muslim parents. The biggest influx to the UK in recent years has been from Poland and E Europe, and its going to get worse from next year.

Well duh. That’s what happens when you actively recruit immigrants from Muslim cesspools and ship them in by the millions, give them welfare, and don’t insist on them adopting the local language and culture. Stupid liberals.
