Strategic Collapse, A Proposal
by Frank Hilliard
One 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.
