The Hour Is Later than We Think – Compassion for migrants must not over-rule national survival

The migratory invasion of Europe, uncannily but presciently foreseen in Jean Raspail’s much derided 1973 novel The Camp of the Saints, is now taking place with near-irresistible force on the shores of that beleaguered continent. As National Post columnist Matthew Fisher reports, “Europe is in a deep quandary over how to respond to a huge and growing influx of desperate migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa.” Fisher writes as a compassionate liberal whose sympathies go out to these poor wretches, victims of human traffickers, trusting their lives to rickety boats that frequently capsize. It is hard not to feel sympathy for these hapless multitudes.

    The Muslims are ecstatic.

    Europe’s looming catastrophe was already foreseen by former Algerian President Houari Boumediene, who gloated in a speech at the UN in 1974, “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”

    Daniel Pipes regards as “outrageous” the claim of a Belgium-based imam to the effect that “soon we will take power in this country.

    Those who criticize us now, will regret it. They will have to serve us. Prepare, for the hour is near.” In light of current events, the prediction does not seem altogether farfetched.

      Must be where Qadaffi got his quote from also (overtaking Europe without firing a single shot).

    “victims of human traffickers”
    There we go with the “victim” accolade. They may be exploited down the line, but the initial approach to traffickers is made by the aspiring invaders. The driver is often the calls home from friends and relatives who have reached Europe and are lauded as “made men”. I don’t blame them for wanting to climb out of the cess pit but I don’t welcome them as they carry the stench with them.

    The question for us is, if someone is hellbent on committing suicide, to what extent is our duty to stop him?

      Not our concern, but we should be very concerned that we are on the same road, just not yet as far along.

    Give it less than 50 years and you will be hard pressed to see a white face in Canada. We have even less population to overtake by invaders than Britain, Germany, France. Wonder how our “progressive, political, leftists elites and their kids think they’re going survive in gated communities? Glad I won’t be here to see Canada and the U.S. destroyed.
    I know check my white racist privelige and micro-agression.

      “Fifty Years”??
      You sound too optimistic, I would say quarter of a century at the most. It’s already rare to see a white Canadian face in any of our metropolitan cities. Even the mid sized town like Kelowna, Kamloops, Prince George in BC are being populated by new immigrants from third world cesspools at an unprecedented pace. In my city, a suburb of Vancouver, I’ve seen the transformation; within less than a decade it has become like any other Asian city with little traces left of Western European civilization.

    The NDP and leftist progressives think that Canada is so wealthy that we should rescue as many of the 7,000,000,000 people outside of Canada.
    The current burden to our welfare system and compassion has taxed the health care system where Wynne now wants the senior Canadian and Vets to use euthanasia if they are sick and just a burden because it’s robbing money from the ESL classes and Regent Parkistan.
