“Eurosion”: Muslim Majority in Thirty Years?

One of the most debated arguments about Muslims in Europe is the “Eurabia” claim: that high birth rates and immigration will make Muslims the majority on the continent within a few decades. For years, most of the media and analysts dismissed the claim as alarmist and racist. “Dispelling the myth of Eurabia“, sniffed a major Newsweek cover.

Not many had the courage to sound an alarm. The great Arabist scholar, Bernard Lewis, sent out a warning more than a decade ago that Europe would turn Muslim by the end of this century, and dissolve into “part of the Arab West, the Maghreb”. The late scholar Fouad Ajami also cautioned that “Europe is host to a war between order and its enemies, fueled by demography”; and the Italian writer Oriana Fallaci imagined a continent with “the minarets in place of the bell-towers, with the burka in place of the mini-skirt”. Mark Steyn explained that “the future belongs to Islam” with an “enfeebled” West in a “semi Islamified Europe”.

    I doubt if Muslims will become the majority in Europe in 30 years, but they will be numerous enough to dictate politics.

      Unless Western Europeans make major changes, they will become a majority. As for dictating politics they already do. In fact they are doing the same here in Canada and to some extent in the United States.

    The conquest of Europe, i.e. Christendom, has been on the Mohammedan agenda for 1400 years.

    The only people who seem to forgot this is the Europeans.

    Not that it matters. They’ve already lost the faith of their fathers.

    By choice, Western Europe is a people without a history. And those who don’t remember the past, surrender to the present, and die to the future.

    Demographics is destiny.

    Europeans (at least Western Europeans) WILL NOT have children. This is true, perhaps to a somewhat lesser extent, in North America as well. One can speculate as to the reasons for this barreness, but whatever the reasons are, surely this is a clear sign of dying civilization. Combine that with the birthrate of the invading muslims, and the die is cast.

    You need about 25-30% of your population before it becomes a failed society ruled by murderous fanatics. No more. That’s the tipping point. They have sufficient political power and head space to run things. After all, they’re far more motivated than everyone else. That’s what makes them fanatics. So however long it takes to get there is how long Europe survives.

    I don’t see much of a Difference between the Muslim ‘ FEW’ that go Jihadi and kill as many helpless women and children as possible so that they can go and fuck Perpetual Virgins with merry Olde Mohummadd
    the Muslim ‘MANY’ that bitch and whine and agitate and accuse their Host country of Racism, Islamophobia ,bigotry and hate—-when they demand special Privilege. because they are ‘Special’ .

    Actually, they are more dangerous than the ones that just want to KILL.

    They know that being a perpetual VICTIM—

    Leads to Political Power.

    Western Europeans, if they think about this at all, must be beginning to feel as the ancient British Celts felt as the Angles, Saxons and Jutes were streaming into their lands. Will we in the further west see the retreat of the native Europeans into North America? Or will we be retreating ourselves into the Pacific?
