The Looming "Islamization" of Europe

Even though the original blog post was about John McCain's new ad which describes that "Obama is leading an extreme left wing crusade to bankrupt America", it was a certain comment within the thread that caught my attention. A commentator over at GateWay Pundit posted a comment that was so good and informative about the goal of the Islamization of all nations, that I thought I would include it here as a blog post.


OT.. “Crusade”

Czech archbishop warns of Europe’s ‘islamization’

[PRAGUE—Outgoing Prague archbishop and head of Czech Catholics Miloslav Vlk warned of a looming "islamization" of Europe in an interview published in Prague on Tuesday.

"Europe has denied its Christian roots from which it has risen and which could give it the strength to fend off the danger that it will be conquered by Muslims -- which is actually happening gradually," Vlk said.

"If Europe doesn't change its relation to its own roots, it will be islamized," the 77-year-old cardinal, who was named Prague archbishop by pope John Paul II in 1991, added on his website http://www.kardinal.cz/.

He blamed immigration and Muslims' high birth rate for helping Muslims to "easily fill the vacant space created as Europeans systematically empty the Christian content of their lives".

"At the end of the Middle Ages and in the early modern age, Islam failed to conquer Europe with arms. The Christians beat them then," Vlk said.

"Today, when the fighting is done with spiritual weapons which Europe lacks while Muslims are perfectly armed, the fall of Europe is looming," added the cardinal.

Vlk, who was persecuted by the former communist regime toppled in 1989, offered his resignation as Catholic bishop two years ago -- at age 75, in line with Church rules, but Pope Benedict XVI extended his term by two years then.

Vlk's successor should be named this
week, according to Czech media.]

Boiling The Infidel Frog

“The fifty million Muslims in Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades. [..] Europe is in a predicament, and so is America. They should agree to become Islamic in the course of time”


Notice what is written at the SIOE Stop Islamization Of Europe site. It bears repeating here:

What Islam Isn’t

By Dr. Peter HammondFrontPageMagazine.com Monday, April 21, 2008

The following is adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:


Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. – Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’


It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.


There are two videos that you can view at the GateWay Pundit link.

I think that America, as a nation, needs to heed these warnings! What are you thoughts about this?

Hi Christine,
Your author stated: "If Europe doesn't change its relation to its own roots, it will be islamized." Actually, the religious roots of Europe go back way before Christianity. I think he means he wants Europe to be Christian and stay Christian.

I also found those statistics interesting. Europe, starting in the 4-500s AD became majority Christian. But it was a bloody time for Europe up through modern times. Can Christianity be inserted where Islam is (in those statistics)? We have laws that protect religious freedom in this country, but they were set up to make sure that competing Christianities didn't kill each other over the 'correct form.' The founding fathers knew their European history. They knew if the U.S. became a Christian religious state, it would go down the same path as all the other Christian countries in Europe--near constant war.

Christinewjc said...

Kevin,

Perhaps the author was referring to modern Europe?

Also, who said anything about not protecting religious freedoms in this country? As we can see through the articles and links posted, the religion of Islam is not tolerant of other religions. Never has been. Therefore, your idea to "insert Christianity" into the statistics seems silly at best, and kinda ignorant at worst (sorry...but it does). I'm sure that Gary will have more to say about that.

If you didn't read all of the articles or view the videos (especially of Ghadafi), then you are only getting part of the picture and will not understand the reason why I have posted this today.

It's just my opinion, of course, but I think that Britain, (especially London) is having such a terrible time with Muslim "extremism" (a.k.a. terrorism in conservative minds)and the forcing of Sharia law for two main reasons:

1. Unlimited immigration laws.
2. When a religion dies in the minds of most of the people (like Christian faith did there) then the void will be filled by another religion (Islam). The trouble is, as I have stated previously, Islam is not a tolerant religion. Therefore, when it takes over - it takes over every aspect of life in the town, state, nation and/or country that it spiritually conquers. That is the inherent danger of allowing a freedom to become ultra-tolerance (no matter what they do don't profile them); which leads to apathy by those who don't think they are being conquered (or at war with them); to eventually being taken over (government-wise as well as spiritually) by a tyrannical religious (or even non-religious) group.

America and her European partners didn't allow the nasty ideology of Nazism to spread. It was defeated - at a great cost and loss of life - but ultimately defeated. And, (IMO) we should not allow the nasty ideology of Islamization to spread either.

Good information, Chris.
Check out a neat little thing called the C.I.A. Fact Book.

By the way, I want you to know, I wrote an article on Richmond Evangelical Examiner that discusses why a terrorist support group is interested in Rifqa Bary. I am proud to say,
There is a little Jihad of the pen going on there.

Sean Osborn told me I was in the ball park when I began putting that story together.

Kevin said...

Hi Christine,
It isn't true that Islam has never been tolerant of other religions. They were tolerant of other religions, even Christianity, when they first took control of the territory that the Romans and the Persians controlled. We know that the Muslim leaders in African countries (like Mali and Songhay) were tolerant of other religions.

My idea of sticking in Christianity is not ignorant nor silly. I stated that Europe was primarily (near 100% Christian) and yet it still fought lots and lots of wars. That isn't silly or ignorant--that is the truth. Christians don't have a monopoly on acting in peaceful ways. Far from it! Look it up--Look up all the religious wars in Europe in the 1500s and the 1600s.

If the U.S. became a theocracy run by Christians, we would most likely look no different than a Muslim country run under Sharia law. All I have to do is look at my history books to show that this would probably be the case.

You also state: "When a religion dies in the minds of most of the people (like Christian faith did there)." Are you really stating that Christianity is nearly dead in England??? That is certainly news to me. I've never, ever heard this before. I also don't know of a place in England that is under Sharia law. Can you tell me which section of England you are referring to?

Christinewjc said...

Thanks Jim...and thanks for the link to your article. I read it and some of the comments there. Pam Geller at the blog "Atlas Shrugs" also has written that Rifqa's parents are suspected to be here illegally. I hope that you are right that an investigation is ocurring and that is why they aren't being deported yet. I just worry that they, (or hired killers), might get to Rifqa before they get deported. Lots of Christians are praying for her!

jeleasure said...

Thanks Chris,
Rifqa has two hearings coming up this month. Jan. 19 is to hear motions. Those could possibly hold up the Dependency hearing, scheduled for the 28th.

jeleasure said...

Kevin,
try this link. Still not used to the information highway?

Christinewjc said...

Kevin,

Islam is not tolerant of other religions here in the 21st century. That is what matters now - not what happened in the past.

The U.S. was started by Founders who were a majority of Christians. They weren't starting a theocracy (been there, had that in England). They utilized Judeo-Christian values and ethics to create a Constitutional Republic that would not impose a certain religious belief upon the people, but at the same time give people freedom OF RELIGION - not freedom FROM religion - as the ACLU and other groups try to impose here. In other words, it is a fact that the United States of America became the modern day Christian nation that offers freedom to peoples of all religions. The one exception that should be made (IMO)is radical Islam. The infiltration of radical groups already in the U.S. is quite frightening. Have you read the links and seen the videos within this post and comments?

The institution of Sharia law has been attempted in several Muslim areas in Britain. I'm not sure if it has succeeded yet. However, the unlimited immigration of Muslims has wreaked havoc both in Britain and in France. Recall the car burnings and rioting of "youths" in France - as it was incorrectly labeled and reported by our Lamestream media? They were all Muslims.

Two places that I am aware of in Britain where Muslims are attempting to institute Sharia Law are in Luton and Dunstable. You can read about it at Lionheart's blog

Christinewjc said...

Thanks again Jim! I thought that I heard somewhere on a blog that Sharia Courts had already been established in Britain! Thanks so much for that very informative link!

Americans who are not paying close attention to what Muslim groups are attempting to accomplish here in America are going to be shocked when (and if...God forbid!!) what has happened in Britain happens here. Our hyper-tolerance (meaning, over the top tolerance that will eventually harm us) to Islam is going to lead to similar terrible circumstances as what the British people are now experiencing. They have been lulled into complacency and think that Islam is "a religion of peace." Nope...it isn't! Such a sentiment is a front for their real agenda. The sooner Americans wake up and smell the coming Sharia - the better prepared we will all be to stop it!

jeleasure said...

Chris,

Here, in the United States, Islam is peaceful, in that we have a lot of American Islamic Sects. Sharia Law is something, say, the Moorish Science Temple would not want.

Imagine, Islam is granted its own state and begins governing 'registered Muslims' under Sharia Law. Some Five Percent Nation of Islam Muslim steps up and sings the registry. That person may commit a crime. Because he is registered under Shariah Law, our courts will turn him over to the Islamic courts. If he stole something, he loses a hand.

Yes, there will be an outcry over having been naive that will take a long time and a lot of blood to rectify.

Should we be surprised by the following revelation?

Mail Online: Islam divides us, say the majority of Britons

Gary Baker said...

Hi Kevin,

"I stated that Europe was primarily (near 100% Christian) and yet it still fought lots and lots of wars."

You might find the example of modern Greece instructive. The country is roughly 99% Eastern Orthodox. Christian, just ask anyone on the street. They'll tell you. But there is virtually no knowledge of Christ. They leave all of that to the Priests. They have been taught from birth that knowledge of God is beyond the laypeople. The only people with knowledge of God, or so they are taught, are the priests, who just happen to be appointed by the government. So, to say that there were lots of wars fought under a "Christian" Europe says little to nothing about the teachings or character of Christianity. When you consider that over 90% of the Europeans during the time frame that you mention had little to no access to Scripture and had never heard a lesson on the Bible in a language they understood, how much Christianity could there be?

Compare and contrast with Islam which runs schools on Islam and yet still manages to encourage violence by teaching that Jews and Christians are comparable to pigs and other animals, at least in one curriculum sponsored in "moderate" Saudi Arabia a few years back.

At the same time, I do agree that a Christian theocracy would look uncomfortably like a repressive Muslim regime. It would probably be a more benevolent dictatorship, but it would still end up as a dictatorship. Christs message was always directed towards people, the individual, not the government. None of this means that Christians should leave their Christianity out of the voting booth. It simply means that they can't dictate other people's belief system. They do have the duty to encourage good wherever possible. When it becomes repressive is when they attempt to mandate good, such as universal health care, especially when "good" for some comes at the expense of others.

Kevin said...

Hi Jeleasure, Thanks for the link. You asked me a question too, but I'll leave you to figure out the answer. If you can't figure it out on your own, go ahead and ask me. I asked Christine a question about where Sharia law was practiced--if you want to answer it fine, but if you want to be a smart alec when you answer, that is fine too. I jsut don't see the point in saying "Still not used to the information highway?" You could have asked Christine that as well--but you didn't. Why is that?


About those sharia courts--notice that the law is not binding on all citizens in England. It is only binding on Muslims and then, only when both parties agree to be under the court. So much for Sharia law in England...I notice to that Jewish courts have been in existence in England for over 100 years--why no mention of that?
I just love the information highway!

Hi Gary, Thanks for the info on Orthodox Christianity. They were popular in the eastern side of Europe (and north in Russia) but it never caught on in the rest of Europe. Just for my own information, what you do you mean when you say people need a knowledge of Christ to be Christian. What would that knowledge entail? I totally agree with you that people in Medieval Europe probably didn't know their bibles. But I also believe that some modern day Christians do not know their bible either. As far I as I know there isn't a test anywhere that people can take (unless you go to school to become a minister).

jeleasure said...

Kevin,
You say you just do not see the point...etc.

The point is a very good one.
Bloggers work very hard to pull together useful information. Hours are devoted to any post worth reading.

I research and write, then proof read and eventually go to bed sometime after midnight. Chris has her own schedule. But, what you and other people do, is lazily ask us to provide you with information you have the ability to varify for yourself.

Sometimes, I think it is just a way to discredit the blogger. You post your statement. Then Chris has to answer it. In the meantime, other bloggers and passers-bye see your comment and may think something like, "Oh, there goes that Christine, again. She says a lot but does not know how to back it up".

Fact is, that is just one more piece of information she has to add to an already well documented article for which you are attempting to discredit.

Gary Baker said...

Hi Kevin,

"About those sharia courts--notice that the law is not binding on all citizens in England."

You might want to check out this story:

http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/muslim-no-go-areas-in-britain-just-go-there/

The link talks about a couple of Christian evangelists were threatened with arrest if they tried to enter a Muslim area in England, and told that they might get beat up if they came back. It sounds as though that's pretty binding and is being imposed by Muslim threats of violence with tacit approval. Am I asserting that all Muslims would support this? Certainly not. However in fairly open society, the threat of violence from a small minority carries great weight if the government in charge will not move to stop it. I can find no stories of Jewish or any other ethnic group enforcing an outside legal system in similar ways. Can you?

"Just for my own information, what you do you mean when you say people need a knowledge of Christ to be Christian."

The only essential knowledge is within the person and God in knowing that they have entered a relationship with God. Sometimes I really lament that there is no objective test to verify such a thing. I mentioned the case of modern Greece where over 95% of people would tell you that they were Christian, yet have no idea of what the scriptures say and believe that it is impossible to directly communicate with God or discern any part of his will. According to everything Christ said, those conditions just don't mesh. I've talked to people who believe that Christianity is hereditary (i.e., they are Christian because their parents were Christian).

This also leads to one of my biggest problems with comments against Christianity. The logic that they usually follow is that Christianity is bad because so many Christians are bad. Well, what is it that makes them bad? The reason is that they are not acting in according with the commands of Christ. So, since people who claim to follow Christ are acting nothing like him, the teachings must be bad. Not very logical if you ask me. That sounds like saying "People are still murdering, so the law against murder must be bad or so many people wouldn't still be doing it."

That's also why I encourage people, and try myself, to focus on the behavior and how it relates to the philosophy. I can't tell for sure if people are or are not Christians, and I don't think you can either, but I can generally tell when they are acting in a Christian manner. The commands of Christ are good. The fact that as imperfect people we cannot keep them at all times is a result of our imperfection, not his teaching.

The teachings also highlight the large differences between Islam and Christianity. Both are commanded to make disciples, but the methodology is different. Whereas Christ emphasized "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," Mohammud's command was to convert, enslave, or kill. Despite what transpired in the middle ages, Christians were never directed to go to war over the faith. The prophecies of the end times relegate Christians to the role of observer. When the final battle comes, we do nothing. God takes care of it, making the whole concept of a "Holy war" rather ridiculous to anyone who takes the Book of Revelation seriously.

Kevin said...

Jeleasure--so sorry to take time away from your busy blogging schedule. You are wrong to think that I ask these things to discredit Christine. I've pointed out mistakes before (and she has pointed out mine) and we get along just fine. She asks questions of me, and I ask questions of her.
Besides, as I pointed out, the Sharia law only covers those people who agree to it. That isn't like Sharia law which covers all people.

Thanks Gary--I'll look up the link when I get back this evening.

jeleasure said...

Kevin,
you seem awful argumenative. Why do you think you need to point out, Shari'a law is only for those who agree to it?

Ofcourse. It is a law that takes a particular religion into consideration.

Kevin said...

Jeleasure,
You write to me "Still not used to the information highway?" and you wonder why I am argumentative?
I pointed that statement out to you (about Sharia law) because I thought you might have missed it. There is a big difference between saying that a country is under a certain law (which implies that all citizens are affected by it) and a religious court where only those who want to participate in it take part. It is like a neighborhood church where its members aren't allowed to dance--it has no effect on those who aren't members.
Besides, let's get back to the real point of Christine's post--those numbers about how many Muslims can affect a nation. They don't quite fit the reality of the situation. It states that once Muslims reach 5% of the population, they will try to rule themselves under Sharia law. But the number given for England's Muslim population is 2.7%. Towards the end it states that Muslims refuse to integrate--that is interesting because the same accusation was put against the Irish and the Chinese.
So what do you suggest the U.S. does with its Muslim population? Should they not be allowed to practice their religion? Should we kick them out? Just leave them alone?

jeleasure said...

Hey Kevin,
obviously I offended you. I apoligize. I probably misunderstood your intentions through the tone deafness of writing.

I generally do not spend time in debate whith bloggers. I hear you and I apologize.

Kevin said...

Hi Jeleasure, I'm sorry about that too. You are right--the internet is tone deaf and I have even said that before. It is probably time I start listening to myself!
