Salon writer Ben Norton mentioned ISIS’ fear of the grayzone; that is, the acceptance of Muslims. They want a stark divide, between Crusaders and Islam.
(I’m wondering where Hinduism and the Chinese comes into this. But anyways…)
The whole thing stinks of fear of the future, failure, and bitter grapes to me.
In two generations, a mere 80 years, Islam and Arab cultural mores will be dominant in Western Europe – not so much due to high birthrates (which, while still higher than the Europeans, continue to fall and fall) or even strong belief (most Islamic doctrine is ignored by Muslims in Europe, except those bits about ‘women serving men’ and ‘believers are superior to infidels’).
No: the simple fact is that there will be a continual inflow of eager Muslim migrants into sterile Western Europe, until the area has ‘reverted to the global mean’. When the money’s gone and the welfare state has gone kaput, after Europe is as violently ignorant and impoverished as the rest of the Arab world, then the migrations will peter out.
Ah well. Islam has always been about war, slavery, and obscurantism, anyways.
The Jihad will have their Saudi-funded fun, but that money (and Saudi rule!) is on a long-term downtrend. The coming Race & State end-point of White Western Europe, still crying out for the Leader and the Bureaucracy to save them from the failures of all the previous Leaders and Bureaucrats, will be nothing more but a distasteful coda to a dead civilization.
Energetic American Christians interested in extending God’s Dominion in the region have several avenues open to them. I certainly respect Bojidar Marinov’s decision to work for the salvation (and therefore, the greatness) of his own people with Bulgarian Reformation: that is exactly how a real man should behave.
Black Americans with an eye for the future would be wise to get their own African kinsmen on the straight and narrow. Black African birthrates remain nice and high, and in the long term is more likely to dominate not only Western Europe, but the Middle East as well. But mere numbers – while certainly welcome – is insufficient: multiplication is commanded by God, but to show proper respect to the God who made you, there must be achievement as well.
Literacy and labour, self-discipline and family, profitable businesses and technological innovation: all these things are demanded by God, to be built on the foundation of the Kingdom of God – lead by Jesus Christ, and rendered effective and vital by His Law-Word.
All men, black and white, are commanded to extend the Dominion of God over the Earth.
(I personally believe that the Earth is merely a starting point, and that our true destiny is to extend the Kingdom across the cosmos: but that is not clearly stated in Scripture. But there is no evading what is clearly spelt out in the Bible, and what all men must do today:
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. — Genesis 1:26-31
Even if I am right, you can’t get to the stars until you have mastered the Earth, wisely and well. First thing first!)
