From Europe To Eurabia: Maximum Acceleration?

22 August 2019 @ 17:37

Raymond Ibrahim posted a column back in May, instant, that has in it a video featuring Hanne Nabintu Herland, a Norwegian historian of religions and journalist, [interviewing] Iben Thranholm, a Danish theologian and journalist.  It is well-worth a watch.

As Mr. Ibrahim remarks:

The general theme of the episode is that Western values have become almost entirely materialistic in essence. Because pure materialism is ultimately dissatisfying —“man shall not live on bread alone”— more and more Western people are turning to any number of metaphysical ideologies, from Islam to paganism — anything as long as it’s not Christianity; because many of these ideologies are intrinsically hostile to Christianity. Western culture, which was founded on Christian principles, has become suicidal— hence the current situation, especially in Europe.

As Thranholm explains:

You cannot understand the world only from a political viewpoint. We are in a spiritual warfare and not just a political struggle….  It has become a taboo to speak about religion due to this anti-religious ideology that claims that religion has no value. As long as we remain in this spiritual crisis, I don’t think Europe will be able to defeat Islam. The reason why Islam is so successful here is because we have a spiritual vacuum.

Disturbing statistics validate this latter point: “Thousands of Norwegians are rushing to Islam” every year, says Herland: “A flood of ethnic Scandinavians are becoming Muslim,” precisely because Christianity has “evaporated.”

The Scandinavians, I think, are mostly converting our of fear, since their countries are being overrun by Mohammedins.

Mark Steyn predicted this in 2009 [the link is dead; here’s a link where I captured his statement]:

Four years ago in this space, I was anticipating an increase in Islamic-conversion rates in the likes of Amsterdam and Rotterdam:

Let’s say you work in an office in those cities: One day they install a Muslim prayer room, and a few folks head off at the designated time, while the rest of you get on with what passes for work in the EU. A couple of years go by, and it’s now a few more folks scooting off to the prayer room. Then it’s a majority. And the ones who don’t are beginning to feel a bit awkward about being left behind.

What do you do? The future showed up a lot sooner than you thought. If you were a fundamentalist Christian like those wackjob Yanks, signing on to Islam might cause you some discomfort. But, if you’re the average post-Christian Eurosecularist, what’s the big deal? Who wants to be the last guy sitting in the office sharpening his pencil during morning prayers?

Funny how quickly it all happened. There was the woman on reception, but she retired. And the guy in personnel who used to say, sotto voce, that Geert Wilders had a point. But he emigrated the year after Wilders did.

I didn’t know the half of it. The other day, Arnoud van Doorn, the producer of Wilders’s anti-Islamic film Fitna, announced that he’d converted to Islam — or “accepted Islam,” as they say — and made a pilgrimage to Medina to repent and ask for Allah’s forgiveness. There’s a lot of it about….¹

I predicted about a decade ago that:

…Converting to Islam will become the chic thing to do amongst the Beautiful people.

I still think this will start happening.  Fear will most certainly play a part in it, but, like Che T-Shirts, Conversion will become the ‘In Thing’, the ‘Transgressive Act’ that Empty-Headed Celebrities believe is a passport to ‘Coolness’ and being acceptable to ‘the people that matter.

And the fools that Worship them like saints will follow their example, much like they wear the same fashions and make-up now.

Once more from RI:

… As Thranholm — who refers to the current “anti-Christian ideology” in the West as “the second coming of Marxism”— says in the video, “A weak Christianity means a strong Islam.”

The novel The Camp Of The Saints has come true.

As it’s writer, Jean Raspail, wrote in 1985 [emphasis mine]:

At this juncture, the moment has arrived to explain why, in Camp of the Saints, it is human masses coming from the far-away Ganges rather than the shores of the Mediterranean that overwhelm the South of France. There are several reasons for this. One pertains to prudence on my part, and especially to my refusal to enter the false debate about racism and anti-racism in French daily life, as well as my revulsion at describing the racial tensions already discernible (but for the moment not fit for discussion) for fear of exacerbating them. To be sure, a mighty vanguard is already here, and expresses its intention to stay even as it refuses to assimilate; in twenty years they will make up thirty percent, strongly motivated foreigners, in the bosom of a people that once was French. It’s a sign, but it is only one sign. One could stop there. One could even engage in some skirmishes, all the while ignoring, or pretending to ignore that the real danger is not only here, that it is elsewhere, that it is yet to come, and that by its very size it will be of a different order. 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. …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.

His last words should send a sub-zero chill up all of our spines:

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 times will be cruel.

—Jean Raspail, Introduction to the 1985 Edition

¹ Here’s the rest of Mark’s quote from my post:

…Tony Blair’s sister-in-law has converted. So has Gitmo guard Terry Holdbrooks, who was touched by the way the detainees “wake up each day and smile,” and Katherine Russell, the “all-American girl” from Rhode Island who married Tamerlan Tsarnaev and whose parents were “very supportive” of their daughter’s decision to “accept Islam” and retreat beneath the veil and stayed “very supportive” right up until their son-in-law blew up the Boston Marathon. The two men who butchered Royal Fusilier Lee Rigby on the streets of London were also converts, British-born sons of Nigerian Christians.

    Ann was right, even the Neo-Cons agreed with the first part. We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now.
    We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.
