On September 11, 1683, the Polish King and Grand Duke of Lithuania, Jan III Sobieski, with 20,000 Polish cavalry, attacked the Ottoman Turks who had been besieging Vienna for months. The Polish attack was successful. The Turks retreated back into their Muslim Ottoman Empire and they were no longer a threat to lead an Islamic conquest of Europe.
A third of a millennium later, Europe is undergoing another Muslim invasion – and the Turks are involved once again, but this time in a supporting role instead of a military role. The Turks are assisting the so-called Syrian “refugees” surging into Europe. They are passing through Turkey, without hindrance, nay, with encouragement, en route to European countries, especially Germany.
Germany already has “imported” 1.1 million Syrian “refugees,” while German Chancellor Angela Merkel is ready and willing to import another million. A closer look at these already imported “refugees” shows that 800,000 were single young men of military age. A similar percentage of the current refugee flow is also single, military-age and male. Other non-Syrian “refugees” from North African Muslim nations are crossing the Mediterranean Sea to the shores of southern Europe. Groups like al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram and other jihadi insurgents and terrorists use young males like these as the fuel that enables these groups to operate.
This massive wave of “refugees” is bringing with them a culture that is hostile to our Western values. We are witnessing what that entails.
The Islamic attitude towards women is opposite that of Western culture. They express their hostility in acts of violence against Western women: roving youth gangs sexually assaulting and raping women in German cities on New Year’s Eve; stabbing to death a young Swedish woman doing volunteer humanitarian work in a Swedish “refugee” camp, to name just two widely publicized incidents.
Their attitude toward homosexuals is also opposite that of the West. Instead of tolerance towards gays, they kill them. Free speech? Forget about it, as the Paris attack and Charlie Hebdo murders over the published cartoons of Mohammad show.
Moreover, these refugees don’t assimilate. Instead, they congregate and take over portions of cities such as Molenbeek-Saint-Jean just outside Brussels, Belgium – and suburbs of cities in France, which quickly establish Shariah law and become “no go” zones for local government authorities.
This means Europe can anticipate social disintegration with rising gangs of these military-age young “refugees” defying social norms, the law and local police, while assaulting non-Muslims. This will also cause the growth of more terror and jihadi groups with more weapons coming into their hands to support them via black market smuggling routes. Weapons used in the bloody Paris attacks came to the attackers via these routes through, Belgium.
These Muslim “no-go” areas will become, to paraphrase Mao tse-Tung’s famous dictum, the sea where the insurgent, (jihadi) terrorist fish will swim. From this protected sea, they will plot and assemble the tools for their next bloody attack from within against their hosts. This could well lead to insurgencies in some countries in Europe as a result of this tsunami wave of Syrian “refugees” washing into Europe. Assuming they have the will to resist this, although doubtful at this point, the current European military is ill-prepared to counter this threat. Take Germany, France, and England as examples.
The German army is lower in strength than was permitted them by the victors in World War I – 100,000 soldiers. Her army today has only a little over 59,000 soldiers – roughly three divisions. These forces, as well as the rest of their military, are in poor shape. Only 1/4 of German submarines are operable; only 7 of the German Navy’s 43 helicopters are operable; and, only 70 out of 180 tanks are operable. With a military in such pitiable shape, Germany would face a huge task coping with a Trojan Horse Muslim insurgency.
France is in a similar situation and has a much larger Muslim population than Germany. The French army has been strained to the breaking point by only two small interventions in West Africa. According to a former French officer, the French army is completely out of breath. Neither is the French military in any position to lead a new operation, nor would they seem to be in a position to counter an internal Muslim insurgency.
The British army is undermanned at 100,000 and the British government is so concerned with political correctness that anyone who casts aspersions on Muslims in their midst and their attitude toward British subjects faces serious risk of being charged and convicted of a hate crime. One wonders at their will to counter violent hostile jihadi action within their borders.
As the massive Muslim migration continues its assault on Europe, the situation looks dark for the cradle of Western civilization. The primary goal of this Muslim migration, historically known as the Hijrah in Islam, is to establish an Islamic state by otherwise peaceful colonization. It also serves as a warning of what could await us in America, if we allow President Obama’s non-vetable Syrian “refugees” to be settled in every single state of the union. We already have Shariah courts emerging in Muslim communities and even one of our Supreme Court Justices has suggested using Shariah law in deciding cases before the Court.
There is, however, a real Joker in this card deck that nobody is talking about. Two of these three European countries are nuclear powers – France and England. That means if Islam prevails, whether by insurgency, overwhelmed by the Hijra or by the demographic of rising refugee population fertility, there will be two more not so friendly, Shariah governed, Islamic states with nuclear weapons in Europe’s future. Given the recent concern in the West over Iran’s nuclear program, the silence over a France or England under Shariah law possessing nuclear weapons should start to become a serious concern for the West.
On September 11 – the anniversary of the worst attack on America – in 1683, when the decisive stage of the battle of Vienna began over three-hundred years ago, the Muslim Ottoman siege was lifted and Islam was turned away from conquering more of Christian Europe. Today, Islam’s Hijra is on the march and has returned to Europe, indeed, even invited in by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and seems about to reverse the Ottoman setback at Vienna during the late 17th Century, a third of a millennia ago. But, this time, there may not be a Polish King like Jan III Sobieski to save Germany.
