Would it not be easier In that case for the government To dissolve the people And elect another? (Bertold Brecht)
I have warned earlier, especially (in the essay Electing a New People: The Leftist-Islamic Alliance), against Islamic infiltration of Leftist parties in the West, most recently demonstrated in Belgium, and the threat this poses to Western democracy. This is part of the reason why I advocate containment of the Islamic world and an end to Muslim immigration. Pundit Ohmyrus makes some of the same observations. But there is also another way in which Muslim immigration threatens our Western society.
In Policy Review, Lee Harris reviews Andrew G. Bostoms excellent book The Legacy of Jihad. In his acknowledgments, Bostom expresses the wish that his own children and their children may thrive in a world where the devastating institution of jihad has been acknowledged, renounced, dismantled, and relegated forever to the dustbin of history by Muslims themselves.

Why should Muslims renounce and dismantle an institution that, while it may have been devastating to those who have been its victims, has nevertheless been the historical agent by which Islamic culture has come to dominate such a vast expanse of our planet? [ ] Indeed, what is most striking about the collective project of jihad has been its immense and, with few exceptions, permanent success. Once Islamic culture sank in, it became virtually impossible for any foreign cultural influence to make any headway against it.
He warns against those who dismiss the idea that Jihad constitutes a serious Islamic threat to the West because we are technologically superior to the Islamic world:
Jihad has demonstrated an astonishing adaptability to different historical and material conditions. Yet the secret of the success of the Arab bands lay less in their own warlike qualities than in the weakness and decadence of the empires they overthrew. [ ] The jihadists are not interested in winning in our sense of the word. They can succeed simply by making the present world order unworkable, by creating conditions in which politics-as-usual is no longer an option, forcing upon the West the option either of giving in to their demands or descending into anarchy and chaos.
It is tempting to call this approach the crash of civilization.
It does not take a modern, sophisticated army to bring down a fragile and delicately balanced political order. Those who have no interest in preserving order, who are eager to destroy it, will welcome disorder for its own sake.
Accordingly, says Harris, Muslims
do not need to achieve the same degree of force that is the monopoly of the established order. In the crash-of-civilization paradigm contrary to Clausewitzian warfare the enemy of a particular established order does not need to match it in organizational strength and effectiveness. It needs only to make the established order reluctant to use its great strength out of the understandable fear that by plunging into civil war it will itself be jeopardized. This fear of anarchy the ultimate fear for those who embrace the politics of reason can be used to paralyze the political process to the point at which the established order is helpless to control events through normal political channels and power is no longer in the hands of the establishment but lies perilously in the streets. [ ] The jihadists do not need to win in the battle against the West; it is enough if they can force the West to choose between a dreaded plunge back into the Law of the Jungle and acceding to their demands. This is a formula that has worked many times before and may work again.
Muslims can thus undermine Western democracy in two ways: By massive immigration and infiltration of established, especially Socialist, parties until they can be turned to serve the Islamic agenda, or by simply creating a climate of fear and distrust that gradually makes the democratic system unworkable. In Western Europe right now, they are making significant headway on both accounts.
This seems defeatist but it is true.
The US is soooo not paying attention.
Very interesting perspective. None of this would be possible, however, without:
-- Leftists who hate Western democracy
-- An MSM who aids and abets our enemies
-- Pro-business conservatives who have tricked themselves into thinking that massive immigration and cheap labor are the keys to prosperity
-- An increasing secularism
-- Political correctness gone amok
-- A declining birthrate among Caucausians
-- A society obsesssed with materialism
-- Politicans who are led by the poll numbers
Add the above up, and you've got a perfect storm. Frankly, I think the author is right. Europe and America will continue to accomodate and accomodate until the choice will be either genocide or surrender. And I think they will choose the latter.
We need to see these signs everywhere, yards, protest rallies, etc.
Fifteen hundred years from now, when Islam has faded away and the new civilization has arisen, some graduate student will write the above as part of his doctoral dissertation on Why The West Fell. Just as today students write about Why Rome Fell.
Once Islamic culture sank in, it became virtually impossible for any foreign cultural influence to make any headway against it.
Not quite. Spanish Inquisition was highly successful in eradication of islamic culture.
Don't bet on it.
They are here. They are using the leftists (democrats) and the leftists are using them. The only answer is to expel the jihadists.
pls forward to V.P. Cheney and NSA
It is not PC to begin a brand new immigration quota in this horrid Congress. But, unless the reps take this up, jihadists will be in this nation ala France, Germany, Britain and all the EU nations. Sorry but it is time to profile, stop Muslim immigration(they will never assimilate to our American way of life), and make sure that American Muslims start standing up and denouncing jihadism. Encourage those communities, say the ones in Detroit and Baltimore. Tell them fear has to be overcome because they and the rest of America will stand strong against Islamofascism.
