If you want to destroy liberalism, though–both the suicidal modern ideology and the extant remnants of the classical variety–Islamization is a sure way to do itWhy Muslim Migrants Always=TerrorismAuthorBy Selwyn Duke November 18, 2015| Comments| Print friendly |What’s the point in the West sending troops to the Middle East if we bring the Middle East to the West?
The preceding is a money line, one that should be used by Islam realists from Germany to Georgia.The Paris terror attack has inspired much debate, from conservatives saying we need to confront ISIS aggressively overseas to liberals wringing their hands over rising anti-Islam sentiment that they claim will exacerbate the jihadist problem. And while I’m more sympathetic to the former sentiment than the latter, nothing should distract us from what must be our number-one priority: stopping the Muslim influx into the West cold.Many say this is a cold position.
And, unfortunately, their prescription for (misguided) compassion is seldom sufficiently refuted.In an attempt to salvage a failing multicultural model and strategy for importing left-leaning voters, we hear that the Muslim migrants must be “vetted” better.
A practical problem with this notion is that Syria’s and other Middle Eastern countries’ databases are woefully inadequate, making accurate information on many migrants impossible to obtain. This confronts us with a simple matter of probability: if 1 million migrants enter a nation over time and just 1/10th of 1 percent are terrorists, that’s 1000 dangerous jihadists. Is this acceptable?
Note that my estimate may be conservative.Yet there’s also a fundamental problem with vetting that goes unmentioned: even with complete information, it only tells you about the past.It cannot tell you about the future.In other words, even if those one million migrants have “clean records,” how many will become terrorists in the future? Again, 1/10th of 1 percent is 1000.And what of their children? How many of them will become terrorists?
No point repeating best-case-scenario percentages.One response here is that the children will be more integrated and thus the problem should diminish over time. This is logical, but, unfortunately, also apparently untrue.Young Muslims in Europe are actually more radical than their eldersStudies have shown that young Muslims in Europe are actually more radical than their elders.
This certainly is counterintuitive, but only because the average Westerner’s cranial database also doesn’t contain accurate information.
For example and related to this, moderns take as a given that religion is declining in our “enlightened times.” Yet religious belief is actually increasing worldwide, a phenomenon poised to continue. Islam’s adherents are growing in number, and Catholicism’s are, too, slightly in excess of the increase in world population. Religious belief is only declining in the West—and, most significantly, among Westerners in the West.
Another common argument was expressed by Charles Grant, director of pro-E.U. think-tank Centre for European Reform. He said that ratcheting up the anti-Islamic rhetoric would serve ISIS’ ends and that “Europe’s game must be to resist that and not repeat the mistakes we made after September 11 which played right into al-Qaeda’s hands.
We must hold our nerve and embrace our values of tolerance of faith and religions which we share in common and against the Islamic State,” reported the Telegraph. Many leftists echo this, the idea being that we must not further “alienate” Muslim communities. This overlooks that you can only alienate those who aren’t already alien
.Note again that the pattern evident is for younger Muslim generations to become more alienated from the West, not less. Some would blame this on the West itself, saying that—despite indulging multiculturalism, outlawing anti-Muslim rhetoric and offering generous government benefits—we still aren’t opening our arms and hearts to these newcomers.
