The vast exodus from Syria and Africa continues unabated, despite the very obvious implications that these refugees bring with them the very seeds of a new Muslim European Empire. This will eventuate in time into a Caliphate, where democracy as we know it will be nonexistent.
What will happen to Western culture its ideas, and the hard won rights of free speech and a freedom of religion? Does this not signal an end to Western ideals with the very obvious factor that an ever increasing Muslim population will exceed that of its European inhabitants?
Yet we continue to view this situation as a sort of normality of change, not since the so-called dark ages has our civilisation been under such a threat of extinction. It comes from a western sense of guilt and sentimentality over the plight of these refugees. In plain words these refugees are mere pawns for a more potent ideology demanded by the tenets of the Koran and the drivers of an Islamic World.
Daily we have Western Politicians trying in vain to stem this migratory tide with long speeches fraught and tinged with the present United Nations decree for all nations (they actually mean Western Nations) to throw open their borders in the name of humanity. They save their breath however, in asking or demanding fellow Muslim nations to accept these refugees.
The conflict in Syria meanwhile drags on and on, Isis continues to terrorise, while the West avoids the real hard decision; that of eliminating this terror by attacking it central cores in Saudi Arabia and Iran. Instead we have the ridiculous lifting of sanctions over Iran’s agreement not to produce military atomic weapons. If we take that at face value Obama and Co have really out rivalled Chamberlain in political naivety!
In the 1930’s European powers and the USA in its isolation, also believed Hitler’s promises. It is not so much as case of History repeating itself, but of Mankind repeating the same scenario.
The only cure for the Refugee crisis is hard and ruthless and one must doubt whether Western Politicians have the intestinal fortitude to adopt such a policy of stopping this Refugee invasion. Let alone returning those who arrive at the borders European nations.. This present band aid solution will not affect our generation; but the price will be paid by subsequent generations and Western Civilisation as a whole.
While we gaze in New Zealand from our illusory sense of distance and protection, we would do well to remember that Australia has had the courage to take the hard steps to prevent the influx from the north. But this leaves us very vulnerable and open, if these people are prepared to risk crossing the vast Sahara or the long trek from Syria and the Middle East. The perils of our Tasman Ocean will certainly not deter them, especially as the Marine Law of the Sea demands the rescue of passengers from sinking vessels!
Let us face the very obvious fact that years of de-commissioning our Navy, Army, and Air Force have left us very little, if no chance at all, of ever preventing a refugee invasion of this magnitude.
In Edward Gibbon’s volumes “The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire” he comments on the victory at Tours by Charles Martel over the Islamic forces in AD 732:
“The loss of this battle would have seen the Pulpits of Europe resound with the verses of the Koran”!
Substitute in today’s world “A Population Army” for a “Military one” and the logical result will be an Islamic domination.
[A]s long as mankind shall continue to bestow more liberal applause on their destroyers than on their benefactors, the thirst of military glory will ever be the vice of the most exalted characters - Edward Gibbon.
