Douglas Murray at the SAU.

"Once again, albeit in very different circumstances, the West faces a threat to its way of life. Once again it is a threat which the peoples of Europe, in their estimable desire for peace, would rather was not there. And because of that wish, vast swathes of Europe have decided it is not there. Busily they preoccupy themselves with changing the subject and ignoring the elephant in the living room.

In their efforts to avoid war, Europeans are once again choosing dishonour. They refuse to cut back their welfare budgets or significantly increase their defence spending, and they still refuse to enforce the measures required to cease or reverse the disastrous effects of mass immigration."

It's uncompromising, but true.

"On the battlefield this enemy is defeated every time. There has not yet been one military confrontation with this enemy which has been anything less than a rout of that enemy. But just because Al-Qaeda and their sympathisers perform badly in battle, does not mean they cannot win the war. It does not mean that they cannot win the battle of ideas, winning total victory by the side door without having to waste all that money on bullets, missiles and whatever type of IED is "hot" in Afghanistan this season. If you doubt this, then just think back on the so-called "defeats" which we are meant to have suffered since 9/11. Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, 100,000 civilians alleged to be dead by a fanciful survey courtesy of The Lancet magazine. What did our enemy do to win these victories? Absolutely nothing. It all came from within."

"Note how Islam is progressing in the West. It is not gaining the concessions and the victories it is by attracting people to its belief-system. It is gaining concessions from the weak-willed, badly educated and ignorant men and women who currently hold intellectual sway over Europe – people who would rather die than appear politically incorrect, and would rather sacrifice their society than be absolutist in defence of it."

Or as Dennis MacShane puts it: “My generation of Labour MPs don’t want to indulge in anything that smacks of Muslim typecasting or hostility. And as we tried very hard not to be like Norman Tebbit or the more ugly tabloids, it’s fair to say we failed to work out an adequate political response to Islamist politics in the UK.”

the islamists think they can prod the Europeans forever. unfortunately, they are incredibily stupid.

the last people on the planet that you should prod are the Europeans. you can prod, prick, prod , bomb , whatever - but the backlash will be utterly severe.

they havent learned from history. its European nature to enjoy life. we dont get wound up too easily. but when we do, you end up with stuff like the "waffen s.s."

I think you are very wrong charles martel, and its this arrogance that "if we choose, we can kick their asses all over next week" that is a large part of the problem.
Its a delusion.
People are just not seeing the threat as a real threat.

As Laban often comments, native Brits have a very low birth-rate.
When people fought for their country in the past, they were not really fighting for the the King/Queen.. They were fighting for the future of their family, ie 5-10+ brothers/sisters, or 4-5+ children of their own.

Does a nation without children fight for its future?
Maybe.. but certainly nothing like as vigorously as one that does.

You want to change what's going on?

Cancel your tv license.

1 million cancelled licenses means 140 million less for propaganda, political correctness and censorship

10 million cancelled licenses means 1.4 billion less.

Get the idea?

Murray makes an important point when he mentions those who would "rather die than appear politically incorrect".
Personally I think that it is they who are the greater "threat", not the muslims per se.

Islam only makes inroads when it is not held up to scrutiny because of pc attitudes.

Binning the pc nonsense would be a vital first step to turning the tide of encroaching islamofascism.

Just my 2 cents worth...
