islamic mindset: akin to bolshevism

I’m afraid the problem is deeper than that. It is in the unwillingness of the ruling elite in the Western world to come to grips with the nature of Islam-as-such. There is this constant tendency by the politicians, the media and the academia to treat jihadism as some sort of aberration which is alien to “true” Islam. We had an example of that in 2014, when President Obama went so far as to say that ISIS was “un-Islamic”!

    Is there any poison ideology that the European ruling class HASN’T embraced?

      The socialists took over Europe after WWII.
      Even after the Americans spent billions on the Marshall Plan and underwrote their defense through NATO they saw it as a signal to implement the cradle to grave welfare state.
      Then, when they saw that their policies caused a drop in productivity and a falling birthrate leading to a demographic death spiral they decided to import a replacement population.
      They are reaping what they have sown.
      I’m glad there’s an ocean between us.
      I will not send my son to defend Europe.
      And the England of 1979 is gone.

        I think they’re getting to the ‘grave’ stage.

      I doubt it.

    I think all these Western leaders know the truth about Islam but they won’t admit it because they fear that events will spiral out of their control as a consequence of that public admission.

      And they will lose their middle eastern funders.

        Along with risking their own skins with their citizens.
