Europe’s future: A combination of Eurabia and a geriatric ward

Europe is dying. It has cast off the possibility of recovery and awaits the inevitable.

“Where are all the children ”, asked the Washington Post this week in a report from Greece on its post-financial crisis. The Greek economy no longer falls on Europe as a danger to the euro, but the country is starting to struggle with the next phase: demographic suicide as it faces the smallest post-war generation in Greece.

The European Statistical Office estimates that the Greek population of 10.7 million will decrease by 32 percent. “By 2080 the population of the country could fall to 7.2 million”. In 2017 in Italy, 458,151 new children were registered. That is over 15 thousand less than in 2016. Over a period of 3 years (from 2014 to 2017), births decreased by about 45 thousand, while they were almost 120 thousand less than 2008.

A report by the Schuman Foundation, named for one of the founding fathers of the European Union, gets its report out with an eloquent title: “Europe 2050, demographic suicide”.

Becoming the Strong Horse: Reviving Christian Europe

The bestselling French novel Soumission (Submission in translation), by the always-provocative nihilist Michel Houellebecq, features a literature professor at the Sorbonne named François who is the very embodiment of Europe’s secularized decadence. After an alliance between the Socialist Party and the Muslim Brotherhood Party results in a fundamental transformation of the country’s political landscape, François finds himself living in an Islamic patriarchy in which polygamy is legal, all teachers are required to be Muslim, and his university is renamed the Islamic University of Paris-Sorbonne.

“The facts were plain,” François observed. “Europe had reached a point of such putrid decomposition that it could not longer save itself, any more than fifth-century Rome could have done. This wave of new immigrants, with their traditional culture—of natural hierarchies, the submission of women, and respect for elders—offered a historic opportunity for the moral and familial rearmament of Europe.” The fight “to establish a new organic phase of civilization could no longer be waged in the name of Christianity. Islam, its sister faith . . . had taken up the torch.”

‘Europe is finished,’ leading lawyer says as he leaves UK for Israel

A top British lawyer and his partner immigrated to Israel this week, citing rising anti-Semitism in Europe.

“Europe in my view is finished. Every day you see people being attacked in one way or another across Europe,” Mark Lewis told Israel’s Channel 10 news, which accompanied his arrival, together with partner Mandy Blumenthal, at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport.

“You see people murdered in museums in Belgium, people murdered in schools in France, people attacked in England. There is only one place for Jewish people to go,” Lewis added.

Yemen: The devastating war waged with European weapons

A video that al-Qaida published online in January 2016 was supposed to show off the group’s strength in Yemen. After all, the terrorist organization has systematically capitalized on the chaos of the civil war to firmly entrench itself on the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula. But the video also demonstrated just how well-armed the fighters are. They were seen brandishing various German-designed weapons — among them the G3 battle rifle, G36 assault rifle, MG3 machine gun and MG4 light machine gun — which are being produced under German arms producer Heckler & Koch’s license in Saudi Arabia.

Merkel: EU States Must Prepare to Hand National Sovereignty over to Brussels

“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday.

“In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel said, explaining that — while Germany had given up some of its sovereignty in order to join the EU, national parliaments were in charge of deciding whether to sign up to international treaties.

An Iron Curtain of social views is still evident in Europe, poll shows

Europe’s physical Iron Curtain may have been drawn back at the end of the Cold War, but a clear division still exists between East and West when it comes to social attitudes.

There are stark divides across the continent when it comes to topics such as support for same-sex marriage, the legality of abortion and belief in God, according to extensive polling by the Pew Research Centre.

Countries in Eastern Europe tend to be far more socially conservative in this regard, with as few as three per cent of respondents in Georgia and Armenia in favour of legalising same-sex marriage.
