A Muslim Invasion of Europe? – Guy Milliere (Gatestone Institute)
Since the beginning of January, more than 620,000 illegal migrants have arrived in Europe. By the end of December, there might be 1.5 million.
Journalists in Western Europe continue to depict them as “refugees” fleeing war in Syria. The description is false. According to EU statistics, only 25% come from Syria; the true number is probably lower.
The vast majority of migrants come from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Eritrea, Somalia, and Nigeria.
Many do not seem to have left in a hurry. Many bring new high-end smartphones and large sums of cash. More than 75% are men under 50. Those who enter Europe are almost all Muslims.
Cultural identities in Europe have been eroded to such a point that saying that Europe is based on Judeo-Christian values has become controversial. Any criticism of Islam in Europe is treated as a form of racism, and “Islamophobia” is considered a crime or a sign of mental illness.
Polls show that a majority of Muslims living in Europe want the application of sharialaw and clearly reject any idea of assimilation. They come from countries where Western civilization is despised and where hatred of Jews is inescapable.
