It‘s like expecting Hamas to accept the Jewish state of Israel.
The Funda-Muslims have been looking around liberal Europe for decades and do not like what they see, that goes for even the so called “moderate” Muslims as well. So this is one more mill stone around the neck of those who claim Muslims in Europe will one day become indistinguishable from their non-Muslim neighbors.
In other words, forget about it, because it isn’t happening.
Warning: Europe, if you refuse to stick up for your culture and identity, prepare yourself to become used to paying increased homage to Muslim mores and sensibilities, prepare for your dhimmitude. KGS
Islamists Know a Western Civilization Secret: ‘Progress’ Makes Religion Decline
The motive to reform Islam from within is weaker than the motive of those like Martin Luther, as Islamists can point to the decline of Christian belief and assume the same would happen to Islam.
November 30, 2010 – by Barry Rubin
It had not occurred to Protestant theologians who had been trying to “liberalize” and “modernize” Christianity … that they were thus undermining the very religion they were seeking to buttress “scientifically” … When the “protective covering” [of faith] is removed, no one should any longer be surprised to see [Christianity] quickly dry up. — Curtis Cate, from Friedrich Nietzsche.
When the 21-year-old Friedrich Nietzsche, who many years later would proclaim the supreme being to be dead, returned home from his first semester at university in 1865, his family was shocked. Not only was his face bloated by drink and carousing, but this son and grandson of clerics declared that he was an atheist. (By the way, the dispute didn’t stop him from constantly thereafter asking his family for money.)
It was a story to be repeated many times over the decades and is still commonplace today. Of course, religion by no means died in the West, especially in the United States, but it has been in a constant state of retreat and decline — especially among the elite.
Today, it is remembered that churches often aligned with reactionary forces trying to roll back the tide of modernization, science, and social change. But what is forgotten is how often clergymen and pious people, especially Protestants, pushed forward these tides and energetically tried to adjust their religion to them.
Often the strongest advocates of reason and science over the last three centuries were highly religious Christians. They were motivated by an honest search for truth wherever it led, a particularly needed quality in today’s society. But they also proclaimed that rationality or science did not undermine religion. They were brave, confident, and honorable. But they were also wrong.
The Tundra Tabloids has been berated on many occasions for “offending and insulting” Muslim sensibilities, with someone even going as far to say that it constituted an incitement to hatred, just because the TT chose to mock Islam’s revered symbols. Well, lets be frank here, mocking Islam (because it indeed needs to be mocked for a number of valid reasons) is not the same as mocking Judaism, for in more times than not, mocking Judaism and its symbols, is undoubtedly done to explicitly mock the Jewish people themselves. That’s rightly called, anti-Semitism, or Judeophobia.
It’s not that that should be a punishable crime in itself, being merely consigned to the fringe of the fringe of society (and not taken seriously), should serve as punishment enough, for hate speech laws are demonstrably counterproductive and violate natural law. When mocking Islamic (or even Christian) symbols, you are not mocking ethnic peoples and races of peoples from around the world, you are targeting the very symbols the followers of an ideology (as in Islam) are using to eventually enslave you.
Taking another look at it from a completely different perspective. If people in Europe and in the US during the 1920’s and 30’s, had took to mocking national socialism in great numbers, then it’s very likely that the ideology of national socialism would not have had the great effect that it did. Yes, there were other underlying features to the rise of national socialism and its success in Europe, that’s a given, but think of the impact it would have had if people were brave enough to show their disapproval of national socialism way before it took root in the heart of Europe.
Mocking national socialism, its sacred symbols, like Mein Kampf and the crooked cross, the swastika for example, would not then (and can’t be now) be taken as a direct insult and provocation against the German people and their ethnicity, but against the ideology of the German followers supporting it. National socialism sought to “free others” through the enslavement and extermination of others, in much the same way as Islam “seeks to liberate others” (the non-Muslim and their land they be occupying) though in the end it simply means subjugation of others. Those who refuse their dhimmitude, will be dealt with in due time.
People can use false comparisons of anti-Semitism and insulting Islamic symbols as being one and the same, (read = Islamophobia) and many do, but it doesn’t make the accusation any more true. Because it’s not true. Saying that it is, is intellectual laziness, and highly disingenuousness.
