Islam & Multiculturalism are like oil and water: they don’t mix..

We recently had some discussion on one of our other posts that veered into the topic of Islamic radicalization and the belief that it is all but a given that they will eventually takeover European natures, by democratic elections of all things, as they grow into the bigger population. Some of our resident Europeans assured us that this was all nonsense and blown out of proportion, something that made me wonder how much denial a person could live with considering I saw proof this problem first hand myself while visiting not one, but 6 different European countries. So when I was tipped off about this story, I figured it would be a nice introduction to the reality of the situation. Have a look:

Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up. Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’ The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no porn or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.

Having experienced a similar attitude in Barcelona, Milan, Brussels, Paris, & London, where they have entire neighborhoods which the non-Islamic natives avoid out of real fear for their safety, if not lives, as well as seeing it directed in Rotterdam where I personally witnessed several of the followers of the Koran tell locals/natives outright that they where going to cut off their infidel heads, enslave their weak ass children, and use their women as chattel, sooner than later, I am absolutely not surprised by news like this. And this tense situation which existed both before 9-11, was far more pronounced during my recent visits, I add.

Of course, the Euro politicians and their cheerleaders will tell you this is not the case: there is no friction between the Islamic immigrants – brought there to do the work the Europeans didn’t want to do and then not really integrated and absorbed into the local society, thus resulting in radicalized and disenfranchised youths whom turn to Jihad as a means to extract revenge against the perceived injustice done to them – and the natives. It’s all bullshit. That story is repeated everywhere across Europe.

It is not a coincidence that we see a trend in elections in European country after European country, where what they consider to be more right wing parties – like that of Geert Wilders – see massive gains, while the socialist parties that pretend this is not going on, lose seats. The people that bear the brunt of the problem are reacting. Of course, most of the elite political class simply blames it on Islamophobia and the fact that those those experience the problem first hand and want it addressed, just are not inclusive enough. The victim is blamed basically. The sad part is then how those that point out the problem are of course labeled and attacked, because admitting there is a problem means admitting that multiculturalism sucks ass and is a failure, especially when it comes to Islamic immigrants and their disenfranchised and radicalized offspring, and that goes against over 5 decades of ingrained collectivist ideology about the greatness of multiculturalism.

But the truth is that multiculturalism has failed – the radicalized youth of Islamic immigrants don’t believe in it at all – and some of the biggest believers in and pushers of multiculturalism and the multicultural experiment are finally acknowledging it is not working well for them. Hopefully the change that the Dutch are making is real and not just paper to appease the public.

America too, albeit to a much lesser degree, will have to deal with this multiculturalism issue, the failures it has caused, sooner than later. The percentage of our population that worships Allah isn’t anywhere near that in Europe, many are converted natives, and most are far better integrated, but the fact remains that there are always those that feel like they are outsiders, precisely because they where told there was no need to change their identify to adopt any of the host country’s beliefs, and then isolated start holding a grudge. At least we don’t have neighborhoods that are as bad as what we hear or see is going on in Europe. Then again, I have not been to Detroit in 2 decades, and I hear that’s not that much fun anymore either, not just because the democrats that have owned have run it into the ground, but because some of the same problems with the worshippers of Allah seen in European cities are popping up.

Europe’s most liberal nation kills multiculturalism?

Well, that’s almost what it looks like that a new citizen integration bill (cover letter and pdf accompanying bill) presented to the Dutch parliament on June 16 by Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner seems to say. Here are some excerpts:

The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.”

“A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands. The integration will not be tailored to different groups.”

The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.

Bold was done by me to stress the obvious first part. The second part was supposedly already Dutch law, it was just not enforced. Does this mean that the elites running the Netherlands finally have picked up the discontent with the immigrants that refuse to not only integrate, but actually flaunt that lack of integration and actively denigrate Dutch society, that permeates their populous, and are acting upon it? We’ll see.

It’s going to be interesting, because the discontent and failure is primarily targeted at guess who?

The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner, “it is not the government’s job to integrate immigrants.” The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress. More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

It looks like the Dutch have had enough of the problems with this group which not only refuses integration but which openly professes hostility towards their host country. And I think I should mention that this proposal was submitted on the day before the acquittal of Geert Wilders, whom had been dragged into court for pointing out that Dutch liberalism and Islam where simply incompatible. This is a serious turnabout in Europe. One we should follow and pay close attention to. It’s no surprise to me that the LSM has not covered either story much here in the US.
