To understand what will be happening in America in five to ten years, again we need only look at what’s happening in Sweden today. A widespread cultural denial of Islamic violence is necessary to maintain the liberal ideal of Sweden as a successful progressive socialist utopia – even at the expense of children falling into comas and girls falling off balconies.
Developments large and small are testing the administration’s commitment to countering Islamic supremacist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood — essential tests to pass if the president is to carry out his stated agenda to defeat radical Islam.
The usual political home of Muslims in Europe heretofore — the socialist Left, suffered a grievous defeat, with the Dutch Labor party losing all but 9 of its 38 seats. This is a testament to the growth of political Islam in Europe and signifies a new era. The new Islamist party is called Denk (‘think’ in Dutch, “equality” in Turkish) and it was founded by former Labor parliamentarians who are ethnically Turkish. Denk is as radical as Erdogan’s AKP, of which Denk claims to be an affiliate.
There is no provision in the NATO treaty that permits throwing a member nation out of NATO. Turkey no longer makes a pretense of being a democratic state. As the Islamic state it has become, it cannot coexist with democracies. Last week, Erdogan blocked military exercises with NATO “partner” nations. He is evidently willing to continue to escalate his conflicts with NATO, believing there will be no response, because he has the EU over a barrel on the refugee issue.
The schism of pro- and anti-Front National is grounded less and less in political differences. Instead, the conflict increasingly takes the form of a sheer political polarity. For FN supporters, the immigrant is the figure that is undermining French culture, through his unwillingness to respect the ways things are done. Immigrants don’t want to integrate; they don’t respect France.
Enough with the easily spoken professions of compassion and universal love. Do we or do we not, as a nation, have a right to choose whom we admit through our border from among the many applicants? There are only so many people we can reasonably accommodate over a specified time interval.
