Skip to comments.THE 'EURABIA' MYTH
Posted on 11/26/2006 8:11:28 AM PST by Spacewalker
A RASH of pop prophets tell us that Muslims in Europe are reproducing so fast and European societies are so weak and listless that, before you know it, the continent will become "Eurabia," with all those topless gals on the Riviera wearing veils.
Well, maybe not.
The notion that continental Europeans, who are world-champion haters, will let the impoverished Muslim immigrants they confine to ghettos take over their societies and extend the caliphate from the Amalfi Coast to Amsterdam has it exactly wrong...

We won't allow Europe to fall to islam anyway. If we did it would only assure our own destruction.
I think we won't have to... My feeling in France is that the people is fed up with muslim immigrants who are looked upon as living off the system... It may become very bloody...
Ralph, do yourself a favor. Stick to what you know.
The author mistakenly confuses the Europe of 80 years ago with today, where many citizens can no longer own or carry guns. His arguments fail to recognize the impact of political correctness.
Europe has been bled white by two savage wars and now made soft by sixty years of living under American protection. Who's going to provide the soldiers for their armies? Furthermore that history that he invokes. Does he not know how close the Muslims came to overrunning all Europe in the 16th Century? Does he not know how dependent Europe is on mideastern oil?
When were you last in Europe?
"... where many citizens can no longer own or carry guns."
Well, we've certainly witnessed firsthand, what can occur when laws are completely ignored.
He may have a [point. Headscarves, a symbol of Islamic femalism, are being o outlawed. Some Europeans may have some guts after all.
Of course he knows about the siege of Vienna... And they lost...
And if people are in danger, they start to fight... The rabble in the muslim suburbs of Paris won't last against even one battalion of the Legion étrangère... And they may be let loose there...
Hm, I like this article. Puts my Eurabia fears to rest while simultaneously smearing Europeans. Bravo!
It is more than that... Denmark and Holland are now recovering from multiculturalism (France never was a victim of it)... There is a storm on the horizon for muslims in Europe... And they are too stupid to see it!
I don't know. There's enough exaggeration in this essay that I am not sure he really knows what he is talking about. For instance, the National Front... I remember doing some research on them for a French class and they didn't sound much worse than Archie Bunker on a cranky day. From what I remember. Of course, that was 12 years ago, but...
But Europe did stand by and let Hitler take over because they were unwilling to stand up and fight. Just like today they just pretended it wasn't happening. Then when it did happen they waited for Brits and the Americans to rescue them.
Why does he find it impossible for it to happen again?
There is a wealth of difference between standing up to an army or to the rabble... Muslims are rabble... Arabs never could fight a real war. They are good at terrorism and partisan fighting... But in Europe they have very little support outside their own neighborhoods... So they cannot fight a partisan war...
Are you talking about the siege of Vienna in 1526 or the one in 1683? But almost the only one's fighting the Turks in the 16th Century were the Hapsburgs, and they were barely holding their own. The pope, the Spanish and the Venetians were the one's who stopped the Turks at Lepanto, while England and France held back. The French were the Allies of the Turks and in Germany Luther was dismissing the Turkish threat as a fiction devised by the pope to get money out of Germany.
The crisis will happen in under 5 years, when the European taxpayers are no longer able to keep the welfare state afloat, and become fed up with hostile immigrant welfare recipients.
I think most intelligent Europeans have already figured out that the Muslim immigrants are eating the pension checks of the European middle class
Yes... Not only welfare, but prison inmates...
Europeans are fed up with muslim immigrants whose vast majority is sponging on the state.
"The rabble in the muslim suburbs of Paris won't last against even one battalion of the Legion étrangère... And they may be let loose there..."
They will just quickly eat some cheese and surrender in to their Dhimminitude.
