Migration as Conquest
Given that many Europeans, especially those with left-wing sympathies, have great love for Palestinians, let us have a closer look at what some Palestinian Arabs think about Europeans. At the famous Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina, the leading imam Sheikh Muhammad Ayed gave a speech in 2015 to Palestinian Muslims. He said that Europe was facing a demographic disaster with low birth rates, and urged Muslims to have children with Europeans so they could “trample them underfoot, Allah willing.” Since Muslim women according to traditional Islamic law are forbidden from marrying or having children with non-Muslim men, he was essentially calling on Muslim men to conquer Europe through its women. Muhammad Ayed further stated that “We will give them fertility. We will breed children with them, because we shall conquer their countries.”
True, the person saying this was just one man. But he was a prominent man stating this openly in the heartland of the Arab world and in one of the holiest sites in the entire Islamic world. In 2007 the powerful Islamic cleric Yusuf Qaradawi also stated that Islam will “conquer” Europe. He said that this does not necessarily have to happen through war. We can be quite sure that there are other Muslims out there who are thinking the same thing. Right now, thousands of Muslims are forcing their way uninvited into Europe on a daily basis. Most of them do not carry guns. They don’t need to. They have found the Achilles heel of the Europeans: As long as they cry a little bit on TV and look miserable, any resilience or resistance among the Europeans will soon evaporate. Quite a few Europeans will even help them into Europe and say “refugees welcome,” even though most of the newcomers are not refugees. Frankly, some of them are so aggressive that they behave more as conquerors.
The Islamic calendar does not begin with Muhammad’s birth or his first religious sermons, nor with the creation of the universe. The Islamic calendar starts in the year 622 of the Christian era with Muhammad’s migration or flight (hijra) from Mecca to the city of Yathrib, which was later called Madinat an-Nabi (the Prophet’s City) or simply Medina. In Medina, Muhammad for the first time became not only a religious, but also a military and political leader.
This, at least, is what Muslims believe. Many Western historians seriously question whether Islam’s early history has been truthfully told. The chapters of the Koran that allegedly stem from the Medina period are significantly more militant, intolerant and aggressive than those stemming from the early period in Mecca. This fact represents a nearly insurmountable obstacle to Islamic reform because the later, violent chapters cancel out the early, slightly more tolerant ones. From Medina, Muhammad’s Muslims waged war against neighbors who were not Muslims, looted their belongings, killed them and took their women as slaves. Eventually, they also conquered Mecca, forcing other cities to submit to Islamic rule. The Islamic chronology began with migration, followed by Jihad.
This is something modern Europeans should ponder.
As the author Robert Spencer notes, “To emigrate in the cause of Allah — that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. ‘And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,’ says the Qur’an. ‘And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.’ (4:100) The exalted status of such emigrants led a British jihad group that won notoriety (and a shutdown by the government) a few years ago for celebrating 9/11 to call itself Al-Muhajiroun: The Emigrants. And now a hijrah of a much greater magnitude is upon us.”
Spencer was of course referring to the massive influx of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from the Middle East and Africa. He fears that this will transform Europe “forever, overtaxing the welfare economies of its wealthiest nations and altering the cultural landscape beyond recognition. Yet the serious public discussion that needs to be had about this crisis is shouted down by the usual nonsense,” accusations of racism and Islamophobia.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is one of the few European leaders who still has some common sense left. He warns that: “Let us not forget, however, that those arriving have been raised in another religion, and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims. This is an important question, because Europe and European identity is rooted in Christianity. Is it not worrying in itself that European Christianity is now barely able to keep Europe Christian? If we lose sight of this, the idea of Europe could become a minority interest in its own continent. Ceterum censeo: there is no alternative, and we have no option but to defend our borders.”
Make no mistake about it: What are are looking at now is the ongoing destruction of an entire civilization. Unless the influx of Muslims and other hostile nations is stopped soon, these immigration waves could cause a collapse of European societies in the not too distant future.
