On Islam Turning West

30 October 2014 @ 11:25

While I don’t necessarily agree with Michael Walsh’s conclusion in his latest post, I think he’s probably right in this prediction:

At the moment, ISIS is heading east, beating up on the Kurds and doing their best to roll up the Shi’a-led puppet government of “Iraq” and itching for its ultimate confrontation with Shi’ite Iran. But look to the north and west (as the Kurds already know), where the rapidly Islamicizing Turkey (Ataturk and his forcibly secular state are a fading memory) offers a ripe target for the restoration of the Caliphate and payback for the humiliation Ataturk visited upon them. …Lately the ISIS advance has slowed and should they fail to take Baghdad — and the half-hearted U.S. response is not going to deter them; only Shi’ite resistance can do that — the savages of ISIS may well turn their attention to softer targets in Syria and even Turkey; and from Turkey, the soft underbelly of Europe — Greece, Muslim Albania and the former Muslim provinces of Bulgaria and parts of Hungary — are just a short boat ride away. When you have revanchism on your mind, expansion or extinction are the only choices.

And what’s to stop the Mohammedins from invading Europe again? The forces of The West? Don’t make me laugh too hard, I might strain something. All of Europe these days is one, big soft underbelly. The Brits talk a good game, but do you really trust David ‘The Toff’ Cameron to do what is truly necessary to arrest such a Jihad in Europe when he has done nothing about the Stealth Jihad / Islamic Invasion of his own country. And, of course, we cannot expect any needed action by the Dhimmis who run the American Regime.

In the Comments section of Mr. Walsh’s post, Ottawagirl still has hope:

Eventually, the West will beat back these barbarians. Superior cultures do prevail because they offer people real reasons to live. We could do it now but our leaders are still trying to have their cake and it eat it too.

The existential wars that will be required demand total commitment. The path to that commitment will require that we jettison political correctness, all cultures-are-equal tropes and all the dross that has built up since WW II.

So far so good but a lot of people are going to be killed, made absolutely miserable and plunged into chaos because the narcissist West lost its purpose.

I wish I could be that hopeful, but I cannot. The scenario in the novel The Camp Of The Saints, it seems to me, is more likely to happen: the Barbarians will come ashore and the governments and most of the people of Europe will stand there and do nothing, as wave after wave of these death cultists wash over them. If ISIS attacks Europe they will be aided by an uprising of the millions of Muslims who now live unassimilated throughout the old Christendom.

As the author, Jean Raspail, wrote in 1985:

…For I am convinced that at the global level things will unleash as at a billiard game, where the balls start moving one after the other following an initial shove, which can start up in this or that immense reservoir of misery and multitudes, such as the one over there, alongside the Ganges. It will probably not happen as I have described it, for the Camp of the Saints is only a parable, but in the end the result will not be any different, though perhaps in a form more diffused and therefore seemingly more tolerable. The Roman empire did not die any differently, though, it’s true, more slowly, whereas this time we can expect a more sudden conflagration. It is said that history does not repeat itself. That’s very foolish. The history of our planet is made up of successive voids and of the ruins that others have strewn about as they each had their turn, and that some have at times regenerated.

For the West is empty, even if it has not yet become really aware of it. An extraordinarily inventive civilization, surely the only one capable of meeting the challenges of the third millennium, the West has no soul left. At every level — nations, races, cultures, as well as individuals — it is always the soul that wins the decisive battles. It is only the soul that forms the weave of gold and brass from which the shields that save the strong are fashioned. I can hardly discern any soul in us….

The West will not beat back the Barbarians, will not find the Will and the Courage to do so, unless and until it rediscovers it’s Moral Imagination, not before within the Souls of it’s people it purges itself of the cancer of Leftist Thinking. Leftism breeds a Culture Of Death that fills every Soul it touches with Despair, sowing the seeds of Nihilism.

Even if The West recovers it’s vigor, things have reached a point where, as Ottawagirl puts it so well: ‘a lot of people are going to be killed, made absolutely miserable and plunged into chaos because the narcissist West lost its purpose’ and regained it’s sanity tardily.

In the same Comments section cited above, Inky Binky remarks:

There is nothing that ISIS has done that is not totally in accordance with Islam and the teachings of all Muslims’ “Perfect Man”, Mohammad, and the examples that he personally and repeatedly set. ISIS is just the latest of a long history of Islamic outbreaks. As long as the source tumor remains any “solutions” and respites will be limited and only temporary.

Islam itself, founded by a mass murdering, mass torturing, mass raping, mass enslaving misanthrope psychopath, all Muslim’s “Perfect Man”, is the greatest continuing crime against humanity the world has ever known.

At some point either Islam dies or humanity dies.

In the end, there can be only one.

Dead solid perfect.

The same, by the way, can and must be understood about Leftism.

Totalitarianism Delenda Est.

    Walsh may indeed be onto something. At first glance Turkey may seem an unlikely target given it’s large army. Maybe but that begs the question of why it wouldn’t intervene in Syria while simultaneously insisting everyone else should. One could cite Russia’s and Iran’s interests in Syria and certainly taking on both would reasonably give them pause. But their covert or at least vehemently denied tolerance of Daesh activities in Turkey suggests something else. The Kurds are not the only unsettling ethnic or religious minorities. In any case going after Europe through Turkey would almost certainly be a bridge to far. But they could have a go at Turkey which is okay because that’s what buffer states are for. But for the moment Daesh needs their help selling oil and as long as Turkey keeps helping or at least turning a blind eye while insisting on the coalition going after Assad as the price for warring on Daesh they’re safe.

    ISIS is without air power, the capacity for vertical envelopment. Victory in modern war is impossible without air supremacy.

      Actually they or maybe Al-Nursa have an airforce though I doubt they can make productive use of it. There are many kinds of modern war nowadays.
