As Amir Taheri said: If you want to integrate newcomers, you have to get rid of people who make a living out of integrating them.
Whether or not the majority if Muslims are peace-loving, tolerant and democratic is of no consequence, so long as the violent, radical and undemocratic minority calls the shots.It is no help to peace-loving Muslims or to the rest of us that our Western leaders keep portraying Islam as if it is something that might have been concocted by the Salvation Army. One might even say that the „narrative“ of many politicians is the true perversion of a message that is as clear as it could be.If Denmark is lost as a result of a crazed, multicultural experiment, Danes will have no home.
Last week, in the article „Sweden: From ‚Humanitarian Superpower‘ to Failed State,“ we promised to address the question of what motivates those who are opening the gates for the current massive influx of Muslims and other hard-to-integrate newcomers to Europe. There is no one simple answer but there are partial answers, which combined may shed some light onto „Who benefits?“.
As a point of departure, let us revisit UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s and U.S. President Barack Obama’s recent joint press conference in the White House. Despite an impressive amount of huffing and puffing, they once again demonstrated that their understanding of Islam leaves much to be desired. A more sinister explanation is that they understand more than they are willing to say for fear of offending „1.6 billion Muslims.“
„We are representing values that the vast majority of Muslims believe in,“ said President Obama. This is a highly dubious claim, but if it were true, it wouldn’t matter in the real world, as Brigitte Gabriel has so eloquently explained. In brief, she said that whether or not the majority of Muslims are peace-loving, tolerant and democratic is of no consequence, so long as the violent, radical and undemocratic minority calls the shots. Just as it mattered not a bit that most Germans, Russians and Chinese were probably opposed to the excesses of Nazism, Stalinism and Maoism. Hitler, Stalin and Mao, between them, still managed to kill more than a hundred million People.
Cameron did not acquit himself much better than Obama. He talked about Muslims being „seduced“ by a „poisonous narrative that is perverting Islam,“ despite the fact that many might say what Islam’s Prophet left behind is perverse enough.
Fortunately, many Muslims are unwilling to implement Muhammad’s bloodthirsty program of intimidation, enslavement and murder. It is no help to them or to the rest of us that our Western leaders keep portraying Islam as something that might have been concocted by the Salvation Army. In fact, one might even say that the „narrative“ of many politicians is the true perversion of a message that is as clear as it could be.
Obama’s soft approach
President Obama even took it upon himself to lecture Europeans on how to tackle their huge immigrant populations. It is not enough to „respond with a hammer and law enforcement and military approaches“ to counter threats, he said. It is important for the Europeans to „reach out and work with“ these communities — in other words, use a soft approach.
If there ever were a place where a welcoming, tolerant and inclusive approach to Muslims should have worked, it is Scandinavia. Basically, all immigrants, regardless of origin, religion or culture, have been received with open arms.
