The Rape of Europe

The Rape of Europe
By Paul  Belien

The German author Henryk M. Broder recently told the Dutch  newspaper “De Volkskrant” (12 October) that young Europeans who love freedom,  better emigrate.
Europe as we know it will no longer exist 20 years from now.  Whilst sitting on a terrace in
Berlin , Broder pointed to the other customers  and the passers-by and said melancholically: “We are watching the world of  yesterday.”
Europe is turning Muslim. As Broder is sixty years  old he is not going to emigrate himself. “I am too old,” he said. However, he  urged young people to get out and “move to Australia or
New Zealand . That is  the only option they have if they want to avoid the plagues that will turn the  old continent uninhabitable.”
Many Germans and Dutch, apparently,  did not wait for Broder’s advice. The number of emigrants leaving the Netherlands and
Germany has already surpassed the  number of immigrants moving in. One does not have to be prophetic to predict, like Henryk  Broder, that
Europe is becoming Islamic. Just consider the  demographics.

The number of Muslims in contemporary
Europe is  estimated to be 50 million. It is expected to double in twenty years . By  2025, one third of all European children will be born to Muslim families.  Today Mohammed is already the most popular name for new-born boys in Brussels  , Amsterdam ,
Rotterdam , and other major European cities.
Broder  is convinced that the Europeans are not willing to oppose  islamization.  “The dominant ethos ,” he told De Volkskrant, “is perfectly voiced by the  stupid blonde woman author with whom I recently debated. She said that it is  sometimes better to let yourself be raped than to risk serious injuries while  resisting . She said it is sometimes better to avoid fighting than run the  risk of death.”

In a recent op-ed piece in the
Brussels newspaper  De Standaard (23 October) the Dutch (gay and self-declared “humanist”) author  Oscar Van den Boogaard refers to Broder’s interview. Van den Boogaard says  that to him  coping with the islamization of
Europe is like “a process of mourning.” He is overwhelmed by a  “feeling of sadness.” “I am not a warrior,” he says, “but who is? I have never  learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying  it.”

As Tom Bethell wrote in this month’s American  Spectator: “Just at the most basic level of demography the secular-humanist  option is not working.” But there is more to it than the fact that non-religious people  tend not to have as many children as religious people, because many of them  prefer to “enjoy” freedom rather than renounce it for the sake of  children.  Secularists,  it seems to me, are also less keen on fighting. Since they do not believe in an  afterlife, this life is the only thing they have to lose. Hence they will  rather accept submission than fight. Like the German feminist Broder referred to, they  prefer to be raped than to resist.
“If faith collapses, civilization goes  with it,” says  Bethell. That is the real cause of the closing of civilization in
Europe .  Islamization is simply the consequence. The very word Islam means “submission”  and the secularists have submitted already. Many Europeans have already become  Muslims, though they do not realize it or do not want to admit  it.

Some of the people I meet in the U.S. are particularly worried about  the rise of anti-Semitism in
Europe . They are correct when they fear that  anti-Semitism is also on the rise among non-immigrant Europeans. The latter hate people  with a fighting spirit. Contemporary anti-Semitism in
Europe (at least when  coming from native Europeans) is related to anti-Americanism. People who are  not prepared to resist and are eager to submit, hate others who do not want to  submit and are prepared to fight. They hate them because they are afraid that  the latter will endanger their lives as well. In their view everyone must  submit.

This is why they have come to hate Israel and  America so much, and the small band of European “islamophobes” who dare to  talk about what they see happening around them. West Europeans have to choose  between submission ( Islam) or death. I fear, like Broder, that they have  chosen submission – just like in former days when they preferred to be red  rather than  dead.
Europeans  apparently never read John Stuart Mill:
War is an ugly thing, but  not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and  patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse . A man who has  nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a  miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by  the exertions of better men than himself.
