â€œIslam is a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power.â€ – Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order
SperoNews recently ran an article entitled â€œIslam challenges Europe view religion is private.â€ Poor little Europe. It seems one their cherished politically correct tenets have been gored by a culture that refuses to play their â€˜Kumbayaâ€™ multiculturalist game.
The growth of Islam in Europe is challenging deeply-held notions that faith is a private matter which should be banished from public life, a prominent sociologist of religion has told a gathering of European Christian leaders. “We ignore the presence of Islam at our peril,” Professor Grace Davie of the University of Exeter in Britain told leaders from Europe’s main Christian traditions at a 15-18 February meeting in Wittenberg in Germany. “This is a catalyst for a much more profound change in the religious landscape of Europe.”
Perhaps, the â€˜Defenders of the Faithâ€™ are awaking to the threat to Europeâ€™s laissez fairâ€™s approach to religion.
“The presence of Islam is a catalyst that has reopened issues that Europeans thought were closed,” Davie said on 16 February. “You cannot privatise Islam. We have seen that.”
Absolutely correct! Islam is not just a religion but a comprehensive way of living that reaches deep into every knick and cranny of societal life.
The notion that religion should be banished from public life – and particularly from the state and from the education system – was widespread in Europe, Davie noted. But in part due to the presence of Islam, religion was increasingly likely to penetrate the public sphere in Europe, a tendency being encouraged by the ever more obvious presence of religion in the modern global order.
Not just a religion Ms. Davie. Islam is a full ideology and its penetration seeks to change the Judeo-Christian culture of the last 2000 years.
Now back to the disease of multiculturalism. As I said before, the Islamists and the Muslims that support them in the non-Muslim world refuse to play the multicultural balkanization game. Celebrating the wonders of diversity is not in the Islamist playbook. Theyâ€™re objective is to dominate not assimilate refusing to accept the values of their host country â€“ whether born the re or not.
The doctrine of multi-culturalism has alienated an entire generation of young Muslims and made them increasingly radical, a report has found. In stark contrast with their parents, growing numbers sympathise with extreme teachings of Islam, with almost four in ten wanting to live under Sharia law in Britain. The study identifies significant support for wearing the veil in public, Islamic schools and even punishment by death for Muslims who convert to another religion.
Most alarmingly, 13 per cent of young Muslims said they “admired” organisations such as Al Qaeda which are prepared to “fight the West”.
The poll exposes a fracture between the attitudes of Muslims aged 16 to 24, most of whom were born in Britain, and those of their parentsâ€™ generation, who are more likely to have been immigrants.
Even the leftist socialist Ministers are having second thoughts.
A series of Labour ministers have broken recently with the idea that different communities should not be forced to integrate but should be allowed to maintain their own culture and identities.
Trevor Phillips, head of the Commission for Racial Equality, and Dr John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, have also expressed serious doubts about multi-culturalism.
Academic Munira Mirza, lead author of the report, said: “The emergence of a strong Muslim identity in Britain is, in part, a result of multi-cultural policies implemented since the 1980s which have emphasised difference at the expense of shared national identity and divided people along ethnic, religious and cultural lines.”
What a surprise. Dived the nation into little balkanized cultural states and then wonder why the youth feel more obligated to their minority culture than the nation as a whole. Thatâ€™s not surprising, really. With the implementation of the European Union, the EU Ministers have tried their best to subjugate the nationalism of the European countries and make them submit to a Union run by a handful of beaucratic elitist Ministers.
Hereâ€™s more bad news from the survey.
While only 17 per cent of over-55s said they would prefer to live under Sharia law, that increased to 37 per cent of those aged 16 to 24.
The poll found that just 19 per cent of Muslims over 55 would prefer to send their children to Islamic state schools. That increased to 37 per cent of those aged 16 to 24.
If a Muslim converts to another religion, 36 per cent of 16-to-24-year-olds thought this should be punished by death, compared with 19 per cent of 55s and over.
According to the poll, 74 per cent of those aged 16 to 24 prefer Muslim women to wear the veil, compared with only 28 per cent of over 55s.
And just over a quarter â€“ 28 per cent â€“ believed that authorities in Britain had gone “over the top” in trying not to offend Muslims.
We must prevent the ideology of Islamism from penetrating our society. If not, ours could well vanish from history.
