DANGERS OF RADICAL ISLAM'S GROWTH IN EUROPE

The beheading of American journalist James Foley sheds light on the growing radical Islamic element within Western Europe.

Europe's cities are increasingly Islamic.

As a tourist strolling through London or Paris, one might abruptly find oneself in a neighborhood more reminiscent of Marrakesh or Sana'a than one of Europe's iconic cultural centers. The call to prayer, the hijab and suspicious looks might bring pause to what had been a pleasant experience.

Such environments are becoming more commonplace throughout Western Europe as birth rates decline among Europeans, while immigration and minority population increases are transforming demographics.

"A CULTURE OF FEAR AND INTIMIDATION HAS TAKEN GRIP." 
-British Education Secretary Michael Gove

In Birmingham, England, the 'Trojan Horse' Inquiry discovered that hardline Islamists were infiltrating local 'academy' schools. An ethos developed resulting in the separation of male and female pupils while actively stifling other faiths and opinions. The academic performance of these charter style schools throughout greater Birmingham plummeted, while religious indoctrination became the focus. Although the British government has taken actions to remove these elements, it is evidence of Europe's increasing vulnerability to Islam's growing influence.

MURDER ON THE STREETS OF LONDON

The beheading of American journalist James Foley by a 'British' Muslim has sent shock throughout Europe and the United States. But a similar incident took place in 2013. Lee Rigby, a British Army drummer, was murdered with knives and a cleaver on the streets of Greenwich during daylight hours by two Muslim radicals. They were 'avenging'  Britain's culpability in the deaths of civilians in its Middle East wars. Rigby's only crime was serving his country.

WHAT IS EUROPE'S VISION FOR ITS FUTURE?

In London, politicians argue about the dangers of radical Islam in their midst, yet the European Union continues its negotiations to accept Turkey as a full-member state. Once this happens, Europe's cultural institutions will deteriorate more rapidly (migrants from full-member states can move freely throughout the EU, with full employment and welfare rights). This certainly will result in an Islamic population explosion in cities like London and Berlin where job opportunities abound. 

Keep in mind that if Turkey, a Muslim country, becomes a full-member EU state, mass migration will result in a sea change, unseating current population predictions. Europe's 'native' populations will be marginalized on their own continent, with no recourse.

History will explain Western Civilization's extinction by attrition as one of the more bizarre events in human history: the will to eliminate oneself in the name of tolerance.

HILLARY CLINTON'S IGNORANCE OF GAZA'S GEOGRAPHY

The former secretary of state describes the Gaza Strip as one giant metropolis.

By R. James Towe  james@sollicitus.us

Although densely populated, much of the Gaza Strip is uninhabited.
 "Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas; part of it is because Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated."
                 -Hillary Clinton 


During interviews, Hillary Clinton inevitably provides the audience a history lesson to convince us that she is intelligent and capable. 

Unfortunately, she usually leaves it at that: a history lesson with solutions few and far between. 

In a recent interview, the former secretary of state gave a lecture on geography. Mrs. Clinton appeared to excuse Hamas for storing munitions in densely populated Gaza City. Schools, mosques, and United Nations shelters been the victims of a Hamas campaign that ignores the safety of those it supposedly is fighting to liberate. 

Mrs. Clinton, a MENSA member, enlightened us with her description of Gaza as a densely populated area. This evidently justified Hamas' use of vulnerable civilian facilities to carry out its terror campaign against Israel.

The confusion in her description is that Gaza City is indeed a very densely populated environment. The whole of Gaza is not. Gaza has tens of thousands of acres of uninhabited land from which Hamas could carry out its campaign if the organization had the slightest regard for its people. 

How could a former secretary of state show such little understanding of one of the planet's most volatile regions?
