A recent survey by The Royal Institute of International Affairs, (commonly known as Chatham House), Asked more than 10,000 people from 10 European states, to what extent did they agree or disagree with this statement, ‘All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.’
The results of the survey suggest that UKIP, Trump and many of the conservative, national parties throughout Europe, are more in line with the views of their populations that the liberal media would like you to believe. These views are not extremist, but the norm.
The results show that across all ten of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.
25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed but on average 55% were opposed to more immigration from Muslim majority countries.
Majorities in all but two of the ten states agreed, ranging from 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany and 51% in Italy to 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain. In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%.
For several reasons I do not believe that this is because we are racist.
First, Islam is not a race. Nor is Islam really a religion either, or at least not just a religion. Islam is a total system of life and contains within itself a particular social system, judicial system, and political system which includes geo-political aspirations – the conquest and administration of territory. Islam is a political ideology with the goal of taking over the world. Very often a violent political ideology.
This ideology is incompatible with Christianity, Liberal Western Democracy, and our European legal system. Despite what we are often told, and despite the use that Islam makes of democracy and our courts, Islam teaches that Western laws and Western democracy is from man and is not acceptable. The only law that Islam recognises is Sharia, and the only form of government is an Islamic theocracy.
This is not to say that many, many Muslims are not nice people. They are. They are hospitable, nice, law abiding citizens. But Islam requires that a country be moved from liberal western democracy to an Islamic theocracy, with Sharia as its law.
Even in European countries where Islam is a minority, the thin end of the wedge of Sharia is firmly being put into place with many Sharia courts hearing cases each week.
It is not that the people of Europe are racist, it is that Europeans do not want to live under the religious dictatorship of Islamic mullers enforcing Sharia law upon us.
A few examples of laws under Sharia:
- Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand.
- Criticising or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
- Criticising Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
- Criticising or denying Allah, the god of Islam is punishable by death.
- A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death.
- A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
- A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
- A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
Secondly, as a Christian, I do not believe that we have different races.
“[God] hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth,” (Acts 17:26)
We are all members of the human race. We are different nations, but one race.
It is possible that we are ethnocentric, but why is that a sin? If I want to be with people who live by the standards that I live by, who have similar values, that does not make me evil. Just human.
Nor are Europeans or Americans evil if they do not want to live under Islam or Sharia. There is not one Muslim majority country that I want to move to. You may be ok living there as a protected western worker or a diplomat or the like, but to live there as a Christian, or a woman. No thanks.
Demographic challenge facing Europe.
Professor David Coleman, Emeritus Professor of Demography; Associate Fellow, Department of Social Policy and Intervention at the University of Oxford predicts that:-
- Foreigners and non-white Britons living in the UK are expected to make up a quarter of the UK population by 2025
- Foreigners and non-white Britons living in the UK will double by 2040 and reaching one-third of the UK population.
- White Britons ‘will be in minority by 2066.
People who are worried about this are not filled with hate, they are filled with concern.
