Obituary

In most sexual relations, regardless of the genders involved, there is generally active and passive -- what we used to think of as male and female. It has been quite some time since Europe was masculine. Likewise, the American Left. Feminine. It finds its completion not in apposition to the American Right, but in the hard brown machismo of Islam, which is actively, aggressively hostile to the feminine.

Do Moslem cultures oppress women? No serious contradiction is heard. Yet feminists apologize for Saddam. Does Islam execute homosexuals? Yet Western gays protest the War on Islamism. These groups are not stupid as the term is generally reckoned. Rather, the politics of their identity takes second place to the much deeper need, to balance their extremism with its spiritual counterpart. Liberals bend over ... um, backwards, for Islam.

It seems not to be possible to have a war without having war protesters. This may not seem like a bad thing, since war itself is such a negative. But consider the mindset that protested our involvement against Hitler. The Left did what it always does, the difference being that in this case they are seen for what they are -- opponents of liberty -- friends of not mere tyranny, but genocidal evil. Yes, this is my usual broad-brush caricature. But I’m painting a big picture. Specifically, there is a bizarre but predictable blindness to the great trend of the past generation.

Oriana Fallaci, recently deceased, published The Force of Reason, dealing with the death throes of Europe -- or rather, the birthing of Eurabia. Fallaci, a journalist, interviewed terrorist George Habash in 1972, and quotes him as saying that Israel was not the true Palestinian problem. Rather, Islam’s great conflict was “against Europe and America,” and its true goal was to allow “no peace for the West.” The islamist cause would “advance step by step. Millimeter by millimeter. Year after year. Decade after decade. Determined, stubborn, patient. This is our strategy. A strategy that we shall expand throughout the whole planet.”

How will this plan be realized? Fallaci quotes Algerian President Houari Boumedienne, who in 1974 announced to the General Assembly of the UN that, “One day millions of men will leave the southern hemisphere of this planet to burst into the northern one. But not as friends. Because they will burst in to conquer, and they will conquer by populating it with their children. Victory will come to us from the wombs of our women.”

Consider for a moment not the global consequence of Boumedienne’s statement -- which itself is evident in the fact that in Brussels, the soul of contemporary Europe, the most common name for a newborn boy is Mohammed -- consider what this means for women. What are women good for? Incubation.

In his A Heart Turned East (1997), Adam LeBor quotes a London-based mullah thus: “We cannot conquer these people with tanks and troops, so we have got to overcome them by force of numbers.” Again, in Oslo, Moslem supremacist Mullah Krekar said that Norway would be changed by Moslems, rather than Moslems by Norway. “Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes. By 2050, 30 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim. ...Our way of thinking,” he declared, “will prove more powerful than yours.”

The preceding quotes are taken from the review by Brendan Bernhard, “The Fallaci Code.” In his article, Bernhard summarizes Fallaci’s explanation for the Moslem surge: In the mid ’70s, there was an actual, technical, negotiated “arrangement between European and Arab governments according to which the Europeans, still reeling from the first acts of PLO terrorism and eager for precious Arabian oil made significantly more precious by the 1973 OPEC crisis, agreed to accept Arab ‘manpower’ (i.e., immigrants) along with the oil. They also agreed to disseminate propaganda about the glories of Islamic civilization, provide Arab states with weaponry, side with them against Israel and generally toe the Arab line on all matters political and cultural. ... Fallaci recounts a 1977 seminar in Venice, attended by delegates from 10 Arab nations and eight European ones, concluding with a unanimous resolution calling for ‘the diffusion of the Arabic language’ and affirming ‘the superiority of Arab culture.’”

For publishing her ideas, Fallaci would have gone on trial in June 2006 in France, where “Islamophobia” is not just a thought crime, but a criminal crime. Evidence for the truth of her position seems not to be a permissible defense, in France.

Of course, the mere assertion of a danger is not proof of danger. And belief in conspiracies, no matter how publicly attested, is still disreputable. I won’t rehash the obvious logic of the matter. Instead, allow me to rehash the obvious correlations. The infertility of the West matches the fecundity of Islam. The moribund patriotism of the West is matched by the sectarian fanaticism of Islamism. In the West, passion extends only as far as the skin; Moslems have a passion for their culture. I speak in broad generalizations, and thus I am certainly wrong in the specific. But you will have noticed in your studies of history, modern and ancient, that civilizations fall. All of them. Every one. How? Military invasion is never the actual cause. The real cause is always twofold: decadence from within, and migration from without. Both are at work, here.

Hitler in Mein Kampf told the world what he intended. The world didn't believe he meant it. Shall we learn from the error of our ancestors? If we repeat it, our descendants will inherit a third world culture, and those who do not convert to Islam will live in the servility and oppression of dhimmitude. Or they will not live at all.
