Is Islamofascism The Real Threat?

The war of civ­i­liza­tions con­tin­ues in Europe

In the lat­est ter­ror­ist attacks, a bomb blew up inside a St. Petersburg sub­way sta­tion, killing 14 Russians, bare­ly a fort­night after a jiha­di killed four peo­ple in London, England.

Yet there are still many in Canada who wrong­ly believe the ene­my we face is Islamophobia and not Islamofascism.

By con­trast, in Europe, it is increas­ing­ly dif­fi­cult to con­ceal the truth under the guise of polit­i­cal cor­rect­ness.

In France, the baton to lead the “clash of civ­i­liza­tions” fore­told by Samuel Huntington in 2002 has been tak­en up by Marine Le Pen, who heads the National Front and is work­ing to gal­va­nize French vot­ers with her anti-Islamist rhetoric.

While Huntington has long been cred­it­ed for pre­dict­ing the clash of civ­i­liza­tions now unfold­ing in Europe, it was a Dutch writer of Pakistani ori­gin, using the pseu­do­nym “Mohamed Rasoel”, who on March 6, 1989 wrote in the news­pa­per NRC Handelsblad about his fears of a dis­as­ter unfold­ing inside Dutch soci­ety.

Later expand­ed as his book De Ondergang van Nederland — Land der Naïeve Dwazen (The Downfall of the Netherlands — Land of the Naïve Fools), Rasoel warned the open-door immi­gra­tion pol­i­cy in Holland of allow­ing rad­i­cal, anti-west­ern Islamists to set­tle in seg­re­gat­ed ghet­tos would one day trig­ger seri­ous con­flict.

In the year 1990, when the rest of the world was fast asleep, obliv­i­ous to the dan­gers of Islam, and fig­ures like Geert Wilders and Marine le Pen were still unger­mi­nat­ed seeds, a Dutch-Muslim immi­grant had already writ­ten a book, under the pseu­do­nym Mohamed Rasoel, warn­ing Europeans about the dan­gers that come with the open-door immi­gra­tion pol­i­cy.  Immediately upon its pub­li­ca­tion, the book cre­at­ed a firestorm, mak­ing it the most dis­cussed issue in the coun­try (TV, news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines), as reprints of the book sold out with­in days, until the left-wing gov­ern­ment pan­icked and banned the book.

The author went into hid­ing under police pro­tec­tion, but was tak­en to court by the Anne Frank Foundation, charged with dis­crim­i­na­tion, and fined $4000.  In 2003 a lan­guage pro­fes­sor, T.A. van Dijk, con­duct­ed research into the book and wrote his own 250-page book in which he argued argu­ing that the orig­i­nal book had not been writ­ten by Rasoel, but by a high­ly respect­ed writer named Gerrit Komrij, who in return wrote a 40-page book deny­ing this and tak­ing van Dijk to court.  The book gained fur­ther pop­u­lar­i­ty when, in 2007, the Dutch right-wing par­ty leader Geert Wilders pro­posed to the par­lia­ment that the book be dis­trib­uted in all sec­ondary schools.  Since then, many oth­er authors have also referred to its con­tents, in books such as Western Europe and its Islam, Defeating Eurabia, and Difference Diffidence Threat.

About the con­tents:  With almost every pre­dic­tion in the book hav­ing come true, the author warns that immi­grants arrive car­ry­ing the same men­tal­i­ty that cre­at­ed the sit­u­a­tions they fled from in the first place, only to recre­ate the same sit­u­a­tions in Europe.  Furthermore, the book pro­pos­es that the out­come of the volatile sit­u­a­tion in Europe can either be a civ­il war, or the sac­ri­fic­ing of parts of Europe and bestow­ing them to the Muslims.  Although the book refers main­ly to the Netherlands, it applies to oth­er European coun­tries as well, of course.  It is amaz­ing, though, how every­thing being said today about Islam had already been said three decades ago, along with many oth­er amaz­ing argu­ments that peo­ple haven’t yet con­sid­ered.  This book was trans­lat­ed from Dutch to English, with­out the autho­riza­tion of the author, whose where­abouts and true iden­ti­ty are still a mys­tery.
