We’re just too stupid and enervated to fight on our own behalf, or to acknowledge or even realize it.
The strategy has been called “voluntary apartheid.” The idea is to provide Muslim immigrants in the West — particularly, energetic young Muslims like the Tsarnaevs — with cultural, psychological, and even physical insulation from Western mores, traditions, and institutions. It was the bedrock of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna’s framework for ground-up revolution. In every city and town, the Egyptian academic taught, Muslim leaders must establish a mosque-cum-community center. These, he explained, would become “the axis of our movement,” serving as the “House of Dawa” — that is, of Islam’s particularly aggressive form of proselytism — and providing “the base for our rise…to educate us, prepare us, and supply our battalions.”
As McCarthy adds in the next paragraph: It is working. And we are losing. Here’s a list of cities in the Islamic Emirate now or soon to be lost to once-great Britain:
Many of the “no-go” zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services.
The “no-go” areas are the by-product of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies and remain segregated rather than become integrated into their European host nations.
In Britain, for example, a Muslim group called Muslims Against the Crusades has launched a campaign to turn twelve British cities – including what it calls “Londonistan” – into independent Islamic states. The so-called Islamic Emirates would function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Islamic Sharia law and operate entirely outside British jurisprudence.
The Islamic Emirates Project names the British cities of Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, as well as Waltham Forest in northeast London and Tower Hamlets in East London as territories to be targeted for blanket Sharia rule.
That’s a partial list, of course, and it doesn’t even touch on the banlieues in Paris, or Stockholm (where people whose cars have been burned up by “youths” of apparently indeterminable extraction are now receiving parking tickets–no, really–in one of the most ludicrously outré examples of Western impotence and futility against thejihadists I can conceive of). And nobody here in the USSSA needs to be especially smug or sanguine about it, either–especially if he hasn’t been to Dearborn, Michigan lately.
Bill ran across a reminder of a few inconvenient truths that’s just as relevant today as it was when it was written, in 2006
