Whatever one might think about the grand societal project of the West European politicians – the population replacement – one cannot help but admire how systematically and skillfully it is being carried out. Over a period of four decades, ever-changing governments and parliaments in a series of countries have managed to push through mass immigration from Third World countries, an immigration that would probably never have taken place if the European peoples had been asked.
One of the expenses of this has been the undermining of the welfare state, as it is physically impossible for the native populations to subsidize immense numbers of unproductive strangers. But the process is gradual, and politicians might be able to trust that their populations will not discover that something is amiss before it is too late to take action.
Worse are the visible expenses, which are more difficult to hide – not least the obvious breakdown of the state monopoly on violence.
In the western parts of Copenhagen, Denmark, immigrant gangs have established their own zones of control, where among other things, they stop citizens on their way to work. In several cases, the gangsters have been wearing masks and bulletproof vests.
In France, there is the phenomenon of zones sensibles – difficult areas, usually inhabited by Muslim immigrants and their descendants, where even the police does not dare to go. France has more than 700 of these zones, in reality territories ceded by the state of France.
In England, a similar phenomenon exists, “no-go areas”, where ‘infidels’ are not supposed to show up, and where it is no longer possible to uphold English law. Most recently, English cities have also experienced Sharia patrols, pressing non-Muslims to abstain from drinking alcohol, refrain from dressing in provocative manners, and certainly not to be homosexual.
In the Spanish town of Reus, near Barcelona, nine Islamists kidnapped a woman in 2009, and sentenced her to death for ‘adultery’. The woman barely escaped the verdict. Later, Muslims have managed to get female parking guards fired because they did not want women to exercise authority in ‘their’ area.
Just to mention a few examples out of scores that exist.
What is new is that the authorities now have to fear a two-front war. They not only need to counter assaults on the public order from fanatical Muslims and their violent fellow fighters on the extreme left, they also increasingly need to deal with vigilantes from the extreme right, who refuse to yield for the ongoing Islamization.
In Greece, supporters of the neo-Nazi party “Golden Dawn” have started patrolling the streets to drive immigrants away, and there is every reason to fear that this pattern will be repeated in other European countries. In Denmark, Muslim gangs are already confronting gangs consisting of ethnic Danes.
It will be interesting to watch how responsible politicians manage to remain in control and guarantee the rule of law under these circumstances.
One option would be for them to contemplate if their policy of population replacement perhaps was not as bright an idea as they have preached to their reluctant populations.
But we expect that will probably not happen.
