WARNING: The following contains frightening content, however, unless you know you are in danger you can’t fight it.
American Freedom Alliance’s Literary Café hosted a discussion with Guy Milliere, Professor at the University of Paris. Milliere is the author of forty books on France, Europe, the United States, Israel and the Middle East. He is also a Senior Fellow at Gatestone Institute and has written thousands of articles published in France, Israel and the United States. His latest book is, “The State With the Yellow Star” about anti-Semitism in Europe and he is currently working on a book on the decline and fall of Europe.
In case you weren’t aware, Europe is declining and is about to fall. After World War II European leaders believed wars were due to nationalism, democracy and militarism. They have been working since to overcome those things with multiculturalism, unlimited immigration, and redistribution of wealth through socialism and the elimination of cultural traditions. The European Union was formed to accomplish those things.
Milliere explained there is no free speech in Europe any longer. You can be fined and/or jailed for speaking against what the government doesn’t want you to speak against. He told us he was fined $10,000 for speaking against Islam. Speaking against Islam is a hate crime……speaking against Christianity, is not.
The economic growth in Europe is less than one percent a year, however what is growing is government and poverty. Countries who recognize the danger and want to reverse it, are overruled by Brussels, where the European Union is located. The European countries tell their citizens they will take care of them cradle to grave.
Professor Milliere told us his students aren’t interested in learning or planning a career. They’re only there to get a diploma (they will get no less than a B for simply showing up). Their interest is how soon they will get a government check and how soon they can retire. The Professor said socialism destroys the mind. There is no innovation coming from Europe because there are no people interested in working that hard.
Of course, as the number of people dependent on government grows, so do the taxes (France taxes 75%) and as the rich are taxed more they leave. There is nothing more portable than wealth. The wealthy can have homes in a dozen different countries and be citizens of none. The middle class can’t leave and, as the financial burden is placed on them, they give up and join the dependent class. As the dependent class grows, the middle class paying for it shrinks, the tax base shrinks, and the dependent class gets poorer. There is a saying, socialists love the poor so much, they create more.
Milliere explained while there are numerous parties in European countries, there are no true conservative parties. The parties are all, primarily, socialist. In order to gain support for forming the European Union, citizens were promised more prosperity and more liberty (sound familiar?), but the opposite happened.
However, even an even bigger threat to Europe, than socialism, is Muslim immigration. The point of unlimited immigration was to end nationalism. But it’s resulted in more nationalism as their citizens feel the consequences. Milliere said when Muslims first started immigrating to Europe they wanted to assimilate but schools and politicians told them they didn’t need to, that they should keep their culture. They are now trying to impose their culture on Europe and Europeans are angry and resentful. However, due to “hate speech” laws, they are punished for speaking out.
The Muslim population grew very fast due to family reunification. Once one Muslim became a citizen he could bring in his entire family, which could be 20 or 30 more. Muslims took over areas, then entire towns. They have become “No Go” zones for natural born citizens. They have become nations within a nation and they make more and more demands of their host country. They say Europeans were colonialists and now they have to pay for it. Europeans feel guilty and acquiesce. My question is, why don’t Europeans understand as Muslims demonize Europe for being colonialists, Muslims are colonializing Europe? Are they not aware that Islam intends to colonialize the world?
Of course, as the Muslim population grows in Europe, politicians have to pander to them to get their votes (sound familiar?). Governments know if they upset the natural born citizens, nothing will happen, but if they upset the Muslims there will be riots and burned cars. Muslims are particularly fond of burning cars. So much so, that citizens have taken to placing a Muslim symbol on their cars to protect them from being burned.
Anti-Semitism has grown in Europe due to the Islam influence. Jews are beaten and robbed on the streets. If they report it to the police, they are told it’s their fault. Crimes are not identified as being committed by Muslims. In fact, when reporting on the conflicts in Syria, Libya, Egypt and the rest of the Middle East, no mention is made of Islam. The conflicts are caused by “extremists”.
If we can’t identify the enemy and discuss the danger objectively and factually, we can’t fight it. Europe has, effectively, made a “preemptive surrender” to Islam. Are we going to do the same?
