A Modest Proposal

Strategic Collapse, A Proposal
by Frank Hilliard

Brussels riotsOne of the problems in dealing with a militant and expansionist Islam is that our opponents have a policy of gradualism. While they keep our attention fixated on wars and terrorist incidents in foreign countries, they relentlessly flood into the West as immigrants and refugees, family members and prospective brides. Since immigrants are, by definition, a minority in any country, these newcomers are tolerated, and since they largely keep to themselves, they have little or no political impact on town and city councils.

Thus when there are calls by their more extremist branches, such as Islam4UK, to impose Sharia law, the general public shrugs off the threat posed to Western institutions as minor and unimportant.

What the public doesn’t realize is that it’s only minor because Islamists are trying to keep the irritation level down while additional coreligionists enter the country. Think of it as an army entering a city by stealth; the last thing it wants is to be found out before it has the numbers it needs. Only when the Muslim population reaches a certain critical mass will demands for Islamic law be made

Our problem, the Western problem, is that the threat at the moment, at any one point, and in any one town or city, is not excessive. Muslim signs, satellite dishes, no-go zones, gang rapes, car burnings, mosques, minarets; all of these things are containable, manageable, capable of being controlled by police, welfare case workers and the courts. Oh, there are incidents where the normal civic response doesn’t work, but these are isolated; either by location, or by time.

We plod on, while the water keeps coming under the door and covers the kitchen floor. Soon it will be up to the first step, but we sleep undisturbed.

I think a strategic collapse might be a way to bring the issue to a head before we get cooked like the proverbial frog in the pot of water. There are two possibilities.
– – – – – – – –
One is for a city, province or less likely a small country, to declare that it is designating itself as a Sharia-compliant state for a limited period, say a month. Every woman would have to wear a veil and other Islamic dress, mullahs would be brought in to run the city, province or federal administration and the Call to Prayer would be heard from every tower and church steeple.

Why would it do this? It would do it to show the population what lies in store if the current situation continues to its ultimate conclusion. Let’s call this the inoculation method of fighting Islamism.

A more drastic solution would be for all the liberal democrats in a small state to throw their entire weight in favour of a mass immigration movement to allow in hundreds of thousands of Muslims and to change the laws to suit their wishes. Very large mosques could be built, the government handed over, and all the things left liberal multiculturalists call for, implemented. Of course, the country would quickly revert to a version of Yemen North, but the reality of a nation thus transformed would so galvanize the population it would rise up and overthrow its totalitarian government and restore the country to its previous liberal democratic, Christian and capitalist senses.

This is what happened to Eastern Europe with Communism and it seems to have worked there. Why not with Islam?

Of course, with either of these schemes, it’s after you Alphonse. And good luck.

  1. It’s “After you, Gaston!”

    And don’t count on any group relinquishing power voluntarily once it has seized the reins…


  2. The strategy of “gradualism” is similar to the strategy I call “incrementalism” to describe the method by which we in the US have been slowly steered toward the precipice of socialism. The Leftist is patient. He plots, plans, and schemes while non-activist Americans go about their normal daily lives all the while assuming that their government is truly looking out for their best interest. We are all like the proverbial frog in the pot of water.
    Now we have a president who seems to have miscalculated. He and his comrades thought the American public was at the tipping point so they pushed hard for an extremist agenda. They are finding out much to their surprise that We the People have indeed been asleep but we aren’t going to be forced into a socialist paradise of their making.
    I hope and pray that the average European citizen is having a similar awakening regarding the conflicting goals of their elitist overlords and themselves.

    I’d like to take this opportunity to once again promote my solution to the Muslim “problem”.

  3. Charlemagne, and your solution to the US becoming New Mexico is what? Because you, the people, might not want socialism now because you are a White majority, but Hispanics and Blacks vote massively to the left and they will be the majority by 2050. For example, in 1950, right now Obama’s approval rating would be under 40 due to the demographics. The way I see it, you the people are screwed. The US will either break into 2-3 parts or become a happy California all over – socialist, bankrupt and multicultural. You should read the Path to National Suicide of Lawrence Auster.

    And we don’t need to kill their leaders. We just need to ban immigration and start deporting people. To be honest, I’d do away with the birth right citizenship. It’s the stupidest thing ever – there should be a difference in between a resident and a citizen in terms of commitment to the country. For example, I get 91% on your citizenship tests. Most of your countrymen fail that test – how can you say that they deserve citizenship?

  4. Lt Colonel Allen West in Israel

    A military installation is supposed to be a place where our Warriors train for war, to serve and protect our Nation.

    On Thursday, 5 November 2009 Ft Hood became a part of the battlefield in the war against Islamic totalitarianism and state sponsored terrorism.

    There may be those who feel threatened by my words and would even recommend they not be uttered. To those individuals I say step aside because now is not the time for cowardice. Our Country has become so paralyzed by political correctness that we have allowed a vile and determined enemy to breach what should be the safest place in America , an Army post.

    We have become so politically correct that our media is more concerned about the stress of the shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The misplaced benevolence intending to portray him as a victim is despicable. The fact that there are some who have now created an entire new classification called; “pre-virtual vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)” is unconscionable.

    This is not a “man caused disaster”. It is what it is, an Islamic jihadist attack.

    We have seen this before in 2003 when a SGT Hasan of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) threw hand grenades and opened fire into his Commanding Officer’s tent in Kuwait . We have seen the foiled attempt of Albanian Muslims who sought to attack Ft Dix, NJ. Recently we saw a young convert to Islam named Carlos Bledsoe travel to Yemen, receive terrorist training, and return to gun down two US Soldiers at a Little Rock, Arkansas Army recruiting station. We thwarted another Islamic terrorist plot in North Carolina which had US Marine Corps Base, Quantico as a target.

    What have we done with all these prevalent trends? Nothing.

    What we see are recalcitrant leaders who are refusing to confront the issue, Islamic terrorist infiltration into America , and possibly further into our Armed Services. Instead we have a multiculturalism and diversity syndrome on steroids.

  5. In the short term in the U.K. the only counter to the political impasse would be a move into an exclusive and extreme patriotic ideology there is no other antidote, what commentators have failed to appreciate is that the U.K. is already a post-democratic society. This has left the counter jihad movement as a stand alone movement with no other catalyst for advance. Historically what would have been its natural sympathisers – the christian and conservative estates, are now nothing more than meaningless labels.

    On present form the counter jihad movement will push the political elite of both left and right further into their multicultural hallucinations and politics of the absurd.

    The outcome will be the polarization of the society, by the emergence of an extreme patriotic ideology to counter the present political fixation and impasse.

  6. I agree with this article. I for one believe the greater Islamic threat was set back aftr 9/11.

    Until then outgrowths of the Muslim Brotherhood had been quietly ingratiating Islam into non-denonimational groups and inserting Sharia principles into the laws of the various lands.

    Even after 9/11 most, if not all, Western governments continued to laud Islam, preferring to emphasize the enemy were Islamic extremists who misunderstood Islam.

    What did change was that more and more real people started became aware of creeping Sharia.

    You need to be carefull also of the converts from radicalism and their organizations. Their conversion does not mean they are for the West.

    One of their larger issues with the radicals is that they kill innocents (Who is an innocent). Most have no problems with killing Jews or Western soldiers in Muslim lands.

    There is still a long way to go and victory is a long way off.
