Posted on 08/17/2005 1:46:56 PM PDT by quidnunc
I came across an article the other day which, in the light of the London bombings and other acts of Muslim terrorism in Western Europe, gave me cause to reflect afresh on the growing population of Muslims here in New Zealand.
I offer no opinion on what follows; I record it merely for those who have an interest in such matters, and because there seems to be a dearth of this sort of analytical writing down this end of the world.
The article, headed "The Islamisation of Europe", was written by Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, who is director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity, the research arm of the Christian aid agency Barnabas Fund based in Pewsey, Wiltshire.
According to Dr Sookhdeo, Europe is undergoing a rapid process of change as Muslims make their presence felt in politics, economics, law, education and the media.
Europe, he says, is being transformed into a society in which Islam takes its place not just as an equal with the many other faith communities but often as the dominant player.
It is, says Dr Sookhdeo, not happening by chance but is the result of a careful and deliberate strategy by certain Muslim leaders which was planned in 1980 when the Islamic Council of Europe published a book called Muslim Communities in Non-Muslim States, which clearly explained the Islamic agenda in Europe.
The instructions given in the book told Muslims to get together and organise themselves into viable Muslim communities based on Islamic principles. This was the duty of every individual Muslim living in a non-Muslim country.
They should set up mosques, community centres and Islamic schools. At all costs they must avoid being assimilated by the majority, and to resist assimilation must group themselves geographically, forming areas of high Muslim concentration within the population as a whole.
Yet they must also interact with non-Muslims so as to share the message of Islam with them.
The ultimate goal was for Muslims to become the majority and the entire nation be governed according to Islam.
Dr Sookhdeo admits that not all Muslims support that action plan and many are happy to become integrated within the majority society.
On Friday 20th May 2005 a crowd of some 300 Muslims burned a wooden cross outside the American embassy in London. This was part of a protest against the rumoured desecration of a Qur'an by American soldiers in Guantanamo Bay, during which British and American flags were also burned. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this event was that it was not deemed to be newsworthy, receiving little attention in the national press.
The whole scenario is reminiscent of what happens in so many Muslim-majority countries: a rumour of an insult to Islam, a violent and blasphemous anti-Christian reaction, police watching idly, and a complete lack of public interest let alone outrage. It could have been Pakistan, Egypt, Indonesia or Northern Nigeria. But it was the UK.
Europe is undergoing a rapid process of change as Muslims make their presence felt in politics, economics, law, education and the media. While there is a wide range of attitudes amongst Muslims in Europe, with many who are broadly content with the status quo and just want to live their lives peacefully, others are striving deliberately to drive forward the changes.
As a result of the efforts of the latter, Europe is gradually being transformed into a society in which Islam takes its place, not just as an equal alongside the many other faith communities, but often as the dominant player. This is not purely, or even primarily, a matter of numbers, but is more a matter of control of the structures of society. It is not happening by chance but is the result of a careful and deliberate strategy by certain Muslim leaders.
Though the effects are only now becoming noticeable, the planning was done decades ago. In 1980 the Islamic Council of Europe published a book called Muslim Communities in Non-Muslim States which clearly explained the Islamic agenda in Europe. When Muslims live as a minority they face theological problems, because classical Islamic teaching always presupposed a context of Islamic dominance; hence the need for guidance on how to live in non-Muslim states. The instructions given in the book told Muslims to get together and organise themselves with the aim of establishing a viable Muslim community based on Islamic principles. This is the duty of every individual Muslim living within a non-Muslim political entity. They should set up mosques, community centres and Islamic schools. At all costs they must avoid being assimilated by the majority. In order to resist assimilation, they must group themselves geographically, forming areas of high Muslim concentration within the population as a whole. Yet they must also interact with non-Muslims so as to share the message of Islam with them. Every Muslim individual is required to participate in the plan; it is not allowed for anyone simply to live as a "good Muslim" without assisting the overall strategy. The ultimate goal of this strategy is that the Muslims should become a majority and the entire nation be governed according to Islam. (M. Ali Kettani "The Problems of Muslim Minorities and their Solutions" in Muslim Communities in Non-Muslim States (London: Islamic Council of Europe, 1980) pp.96-105) Not all Muslims would support this action plan. The more secularized are happy to become integrated within the majority society. Even amongst those who agree on the ultimate goal of creating an Islamic state, there are differences about methodology i.e. whether this should be a slow and peaceful transition, or whether it should be hastened by means of political dominance or even say some by violence.

Don't be surprised by Garth George. He is the token conservative on the very left-leaning Herald. Notice that when New Zealand gets conservative, they are extremely conservative and Garthy boy is probably to the right of most conservatives on this issue.
Ping to shaggy!
If the muslims had some good marketing people they would know...don't take your product to market until you have worked out all the kinks. And if your product just doesn't work, toss it in the trash and start over from scratch.
You dont need a crystal ball to see the islamisation of europe. Thousands of muslims migrate legally and illegally to europe every day. They are mostly N.Africans and Pakistanis.
Europe also supports terror by giving "sanctuary" to these islamo fascists. London, Zurich, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome and Berlin are all host to some of the most radical muslims in the world.
I find this statement interesting only in that as a military person who has been in and out of Europe since 1987 I can say that I see this statement being true as a direct result of Europeans LEAVING their faiths behind. The more secular it becomes the easily more dominant the Islamic faith ( And its associated Islamofacist types) becomes. In Great Britain you can see the results of letting anything go when it comes to the out-right hate speech of the muslums and their blatant call to set up an islamic form of government through-out Europe.
They can thank themselves for allowing it all to happen.
Eurabia is a FACT. Just do a Google search on it - I believe the project is now called Medea or something along that line.
It is no longer a secret behind the scenes sort of agreement. It is now openly discussed.
Some tough questions for the Islamists
Another POST SCRIPT Question: By the way, don't most Islamic countries practice HONOR KILLINGs? I figure any people who can kill their own daughters are capable of killing just about anyone...
Our Republic...If we can keep it...
Muslims breed like flies, and this is their stratetgy to over-populate the world and gain control, while other nations have long been seeking to control populations, and the strategy of Muslims is working. We are being over run by masses who have caused their countries to overflow with people.
Yes, indeed there is an up side. Just imagine all those NOW and NARAL nags wearing burkas. Hey, and Barbara Boxer too!
What about Hillary! This ain't so bad after all.
It appears as though Muslims in Paris and Holland are well on their way to achieving their goals. They've made these goals known to the public around them and the French seem to be ignoring it and the Dutch seemed to have awakened, but a bit too late. And we have any number of those sympathetic to their aims here.

Burned a cross in public in a (once) Christian country and no one seemed to even care. And the police stood idly by while the cross in front of the American embassy in London burned? I didn't see this on the news. Yet the alleged desecration of the Quran still makes headlines. We are complacent to the end it seems. Won't be much of a victory for them if they succeed in the Islamisation of Europe, much of Europe has just rolled over and gone back to sleep.
But...but...but...they're needed to prop up the socialist pyramid scheme for a few more years.
Best post I've seen in months.
Looks like it might happen.
In 1974, Boumedienne, the former President of Algeria, said in a speech at the U.N.:
"One day millions of men will leave the southern hemisphere to go to the northern hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory."
And what about the U.S.? Are we any better? I think not. Just look how we tiptoe around Muslims so as not to cause offense. Makes me want to puke.
