If readers are willing to open all the links below, it will provide a thumbnail sketch of the situation which confronts most countries in Europe. Talk to any countryman in France, England, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, and etc., and they will tell you that the power of Islam is sweeping over their land. The root of these problems are based in liberal immigration policies which began more than forty years ago. More specifically, guest worker programs (sound familiar?) whereby domestics and other workers came to their countries from Algeria, Morocco, Turkey and other places, to take jobs for lesser pay than European workers were willing to accept. Ergo, the greed factor. Cheap labor equates to more money in one’s pocket. In the long run, however, the price being paid will be far more costly.
In 1980, there were approximately 1,000 Muslims in Norway. Today, there are estimated over 120,000. While population growth varies from country to country, the rate of increase among Muslims is much greater than non-Muslims. Mosques are being erected at a must faster rate all over Europe, than any other religious institution. Throughout Europe, the rate of procreation is four time greater among Muslim mothers, than non-Muslim mothers. Today, the threat to Norwegian culture is worrying their people. Here’s one article:
Brits are between a rock and a hard place trying to decide whether to allow Shariah law to trump British law in their court system. Muslims are making strong demands, and the Brits are listening.
Consider, Geert Wilder, the Dutch politician who produced the film “Fitna” ….the same man who has been warning Europe and the Americans about the rising threat of Islam, is considered a front runner for heading his government. Such, is an example of the feelings of Europeans about the rapidly changing cultural mosaic of their continent. For those who are unaware of this 17 minute documentary, please visit:
Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France has drawn a line, saying there is place for burkas in his country. Clearly, sentiments in Europe are changing. Cultures, such as the French, Spanish, German, Dutch, Scandinavian and English may not be French, Spanish Dutch, Scandinavian and English in fifty years, if current trends continue, and so-called “tolerance” is the politically correct buzz word of the day.
Now the Swiss have spoken. See the two articles below describe the recent vote by Swiss people to ban the further erection of minarets. Perhaps, tolerance is taking on a new dimension?
Tolerance is wonderful, but there has to be a retention of a nation’s culture, or else, the culture will disappear. Americans don’t think it can happen to us. Europeans didn’t think that either, twenty years ago.
Just because we can’t see it coming, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.Twenty years ago, I was getting ready to retire from a police career in Miami. The subject of mosques, Muslims or jihad rarely passed the lips of any American, nor did we read about it in the media. What a difference a generation makes. Imagine the next?
