Muslims Poised to Take Over Europe: Bernard Lewis

Bernard Lewis is an honored scholar of Arabs and Islam. If he says that muslims are about the take over Europe, smart people will pay attention.
Lewis, whose numerous books include the recent What Went Wrong?: The Clash Between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East, and The Crisis of Islam: Holy War and Unholy Terror, would set no timetable for this drastic shift in Europe, instead focusing on the process, which he said would be assisted by "immigration and democracy." Instead of fighting the threat, he elaborated, Europeans had given up.

"Europeans are losing their own loyalties and their own self-confidence," he said. "They have no respect for their own culture." Europeans had "surrendered" on every issue with regard to Islam in a mood of "self-abasement," "political correctness" and "multi-culturalism," said Lewis


It is my impression that aside from Denmark, Europe has given up. If it were up to leftists in North America and Oceania, those outposts of western civilisation would also surrender--out of abject political correctness.

Fortunately it is not up to the morons who cling to sinecured positions in journalism, the university, civil service (other than departments requiring real world competency), etc. It is up to the people who actually make things and run things. Most of those people don't seem ready to give up the only decent civilisation ever to evolve.
