Radical Islam in Europe: No One to Blame But Us

More hearts of Western civilization have been targeted and hit. First, armed gunmen entered the Paris office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last week and killed 12 people, to impose their understanding of Sharia on the French. Then, the German newspaper Hamburger Morgenpost, which had the courage to reprint the cartoons, was firebombed on January 10.

Most newspapers in Germany had apparently decided not to risk upsetting Muslim extremists by reprinting anything that might have have distressed them. The Berliner Zeitung, the Hamburger Morgenpost and Der Tagesspiegel were amongst the few exceptions.

Assaults such as these, in addition to a list of demands — from banning Christmas decorations to putting people on trial, if not murdering them, for exercising their freedom of speech — lead one to wonder what further demands might be rolling down the pike, how many, and at what point, if any, are they meant to stop?

These “prophets of death” come with a clear message intended for all of us: This will be the fate of those who refuse to submit to medieval Sharia dictates. If the general coverage in the mainstream media is any indication, they have already succeeded in landing our compliance. And it wasn’t very difficult.


We will not be spared Europe’s fate.

As the Toronto Star was careful to point out in its editorial explaining why it has accepted sharia law governance and will not publish images of its prophet there are now some 600,000 Muslims in the GTA.

Our Muslims are not different than Europe’s Muslims. Their Islam is not different from the Islam of Europe’s Muslim settlers.

It is simply a matter of numbers. The growing size of Europe’s Muslim settler population places the continent beyond hope of peaceful reconciliation.

Muslim immigration must become a political issue.  The grievance mongers have no case to make for it not to be curtailed.

Islam is not a religion of peace. You know that, and so do they.
