Terror in Berlin: Who will stand up for Europe?
By David Semple
Europe in the 1930s was on the edge of a precipice as Adolf Hitler and his primitive Nazi hordes defied the accepted international order. The upholders of that international order – Great Britain, France and the League of Nations – were unable to contain the uncontrollable ambitions of the Nazi New Order which had gained control of the most powerful nation in Europe, Germany.
But instead of defying the illegal actions of the Hitler regime by preventing the militarisation of the Rhineland in 1936, and the annexation of Austria and the Sudetenland in 1938, the cowardly leaders of Britain and France adopted the Nazi narrative that Germany was a victim of the post-World War One Treaty of Versailles.
Neville Chamberlain and Edouard Daladier, the leaders of the West during the last era of American isolationism, played into Hitler’s hands by allowing the Nazi dictator to play the victim card, similar to the Palestinian Arabs who claim to be victims of the 1947 United Nations Partition Plan.
Like the Nazis, the Palestinians and their Muslim co-religionists in Islamic State portray themselves as victims of the West. And so far, the West has chosen to appease Islamic terrorism by abandoning Israel. But in the same way that appeasing Hitler actually led to war, today’s appeasers are also laying the ground for Europe’s destruction.
The price of appeasement for France was surrender to Nazi Germany in June 1940. French soldiers fought bravely against the Nazi military steamroller which came out of the Ardennes forest in 1940 and took their leaders by surprise. The French leadership, armed with the biggest army in Europe and a vast overseas empire much greater in size than the growing Nazi Reich, did not have the will to fight for the honour of France. They chose surrender while Britain chose to leave Europe on the beaches of Dunkirk.
Sound familiar? Now, the Europeans capitulate to the demands of Islamists by conducting a diplomatic war against Israel, a country that is on the front line in the defence of Western civilization. Like Hitler, the Islamists are well aware of the moral cowardice and weakness at the heart of western Europe. Emboldened, they are now waging a terror war in cities such as Brussels, Berlin and Paris.
Every time there is a Muslim terrorist attack in Europe, Europeans take flowers to the site of the latest Muslim horror-show and say “Je Suis Charlie,” or “Je Suis Bruxelles.” Europeans mourn their dead but they cannot find it within themselves to blame Islam. Instead, they blame European colonialism, which ended decades ago. They do not blame the tenets of Islamism, which call for the West to surrender to the totalitarianism of Islam.
Europeans no longer understand or believe in Judeo-Christian Western values. And so they mourn. They mourn for a world that is dying right in front of their very eyes. Within a generation they might well be saying “Je Suis Mussulman (Muslim)” if they don’t stand up for Europe and fight the terrors that Islamists are inflicting on the people of Europe.
On May 13 1940, Winston Churchill addressed the House of Commons and spoke for the newly-defiant British people, who had belatedly woken from their sleep of appeasement. Churchill spoke for England when he said:
“We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength the God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. […] You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.”
We hear no such voices from European leaders today. Muslim fanatics have repeatedly attacked Paris, and France responded by engaging in a few token bombing raids against the Islamic State in Syria. London was attacked in 2005 and Tony Blair did nothing in response. Muslims attacked Brussels and the government of Belgium did nothing against the Islamic State, which took credit for the attacks.
This week the Islamic State took credit for the latest truck intifada attack in the Christmas markets in Berlin. Germany will do nothing except close the Christmas markets, an act of surrender by Germany’s champion of enforced multiculturalism, Chancellor Angela Merkel. For her, the enemy is not the Muslim jihadist. Mrs Merkel has gone out of her way to bully the German people into accepting Islam as a central pillar of the post-German state in the 21st century. The East German communist who is now leader of the former conservative Christian Democrat Party considers those Germans who reject Islamic immigration to be the real enemies of the state, for instance the followers of the grassroots anti-immigrant movement known as Pegida.
The Muslim jihadis, knowing that the German government will meet each and every Islamic terrorist attack with nothing except further acts of abject surrender, will continue to outrage the German population with Palestinian-style terrorist attacks. These are likely to continue for many years into the future. The truck intifada is likely to become the most common method of jihadi attack over the next few years. It’s easy and cheap, doing the maximum amount of damage in improvised terror attacks.
Muslims today despise the German people, calling them kaffirs, or subhuman animals. That is how Muslims perceive all non-Muslims. It is, after all, written in the Koran. Mrs Merkel, too, despises the German people. That’s why she supports the European Union’s globalist ideology. For Mrs Merkel, Muslims are more acceptable than Germans in the future of Europe. After all, Islam despises the concept of the nation state even more so than do the leaders of the European Union.
Every time Muslims murder Europeans, there are millions of European Muslims who cheer on the jihadis while clueless Europeans just surrender to their fate. And what is their fate? To continue to die in the face of Islamic terrorist attacks while begging the Americans to save them.
Meanwhile, the Americans continue to support and arm the same jihadi groups in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the Palestinian Authority who are allied with the new generation of Muslim terrorists now mowing down Germans and Frenchmen on the streets of Europe. So much for America. They have a serious Muslim terrorist problem of their own that they cannot solve. As things get worse in Europe – and they are getting worse every year – they will continue to get worse in the New World too. America under President Obama is as catatonic in the face of Muslim terrorism as is post-Western Europe.
Muslim terrorism will only increase with the growth of the Muslim population in the West. Mrs Merkel’s invitation which was extended to millions of Muslim migrants to settle in Germany has completely changed the social fabric of Western Europe over the last two years. The migrant invasion has had a devastating effect on the German people, leaving a trail of misery and mayhem across the country. In parts of Berlin, immigrant children as young as seven years of age are turning to a life of crime, their victims being the fast-diminishing hard working German people. Large parts of the immigrant areas of Berlin, Hamburg and the Ruhr Area have become police no-go areas, where criminals and extremists have free reign. Within no time at all, a lone police patrol car making a foray into Germany’s ethnic war zones finds itself surrounded by a baying lynch mob, much like US soldiers in Baghdad at the height of the troubles.
People are fleeing West Berlin to escape immigrant violence specifically targeting native Germans. Anti-German racism of the most virulent kind has become a fact of life across the country. Muslim hatred towards native Germans has led to a rise in torrents of abuse and ethnic slurs towards Germans in their own country. Even young Turkish women think nothing of calling native girls “German whores” and chanting that “Germans should be gassed.”
The Islamic State may be losing territory in Syria and Iraq but it has already used Islamic immigration to penetrate Europe and undermine it from within, creating a series of small Islamic caliphates in cities across the continent. This is called hijrah, or jihad by migration. Italy and most of southern Europe, including parts of Spain, are already filled with Muslim sleeper cells waiting to carry out jihad against the Europeans. The wars in Syria, Iraq and the Middle East are unlikely to end for decades. It doesn’t matter which jihadi group, ISIS or al-Qaeda, loses ground to American or Russian forces. Another jihadi group will arise and Islam’s civil wars will extend for decades into the future.
As these civil wars rage in the deserts, the hijrah of Muslim immigration will continue to pour into Europe. As the Muslim population of Europe rises, terrorist groups will find a rich breeding ground of anti-Western Muslims in the cities of Europe from which to recruit more jihadis. As law and order in Europe breaks down, a future of civil war between the growing demographic of Muslims and the declining demographic of Europeans seems likely. Either that, or complete European surrender to the demands of growing violent Muslim communities.
Meanwhile, Islamic terrorist organizations are preparing to launch a major attack on Italy from Libya, where they will try to achieve what the Caliphate was unable to achieve during the Middle Ages, the conquest of Rome. Their target date for victory is 2043, the 600th anniversary of the fall of Byzantine Constantinople to the invading Seljuk Turks of Asia. There is no sign today that European leaders are taking this threat seriously.
Winston Churchill’s defiance in the face of terror is absent among the European elites. People who are not willing to defend their civilization are doomed to lose that civilization. During the eighth century, a Frenchman named Charles Martel, who took his name from a Jewish hero called Judas Maccabeus (“the Hammer”), saved France from Islamic enslavement. In effect, Martel saved western Europe from the a fate that awaits today’s Europeans if they don’t fight to save themselves.
Not a single political leader in Europe and North America has the fighting spirit, tenacity and vision of either Winston Churchill or Charles Martel. This is lamentable. But the question remains: Who today will stand up for Europe and for Western civilization in general? Who will fight the primitive Islamist hordes before it’s too late?
