The rad­i­cal Is­lamic chal­lenge to Western civ­i­liza­tion

Con­quest through mi­gra­tion is an­other form of ji­had

The Washington Times Weekly - - Commentary - By Monica Crowley

Im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the Is­lamic State terror at­tacks in Paris that killed and wounded hun­dreds of peo­ple, French Pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hol­lande rightly de­clared them “acts of war” de­serv­ing a “mer­ci­less” re­sponse. This lat­est act of vi­o­lent ji­had, how­ever, stems di­rectly from an­other form of ji­had, one that has been un­der­way in Europe for decades but has ramped up dra­mat­i­cally over the past year. It’s called hi­jra. Hi­jra is a core part of ji­had go­ing back to the Prophet Muham­mad that in­volves Is­lamic con­quest through mi­gra­tion. The ob­jec­tive is to over­whelm non-Mus­lim ter­ri­to­ries with Mus­lim pop­u­la­tions un­til they achieve dom­i­na­tion through sheer num­bers. No weapons nec­es­sary — un­til they gain enough con­trol.

At least one of the Paris ji­hadis orig­i­nated in Syria and reg­is­tered as a “refugee” through Greece. This is less a “refugee cri­sis” and more an oc­cu­pa­tion.

Sev­eral weeks ago, I trav­eled through Cen­tral Europe and wit­nessed first­hand this Is­lamic tsunami.

Across Aus­tria and Ger­many, I saw tens of thou­sands of peo­ple pour­ing in, with few con­straints on their where­abouts and be­hav­ior. It was clear that it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore the chaos turned far more con­vul­sive and vi­o­lent.

Let’s be clear: Some of them may be flee­ing war and per­se­cu­tion, but most are not. In fact, only about 10 per­cent of the new ar­rivals are from Syria; the other 90 per­cent are from else­where in the Mid­dle East, North Africa and coun­tries like Pak­istan and In­done­sia who are us­ing the Euro­pean Union’s open doors-open bor­ders pol­icy to reach the West for so­cial wel­fare and the longer-term goal of spread­ing Is­lam.

They stopped be­ing “refugees” when they failed to reg­is­ter for asy­lum in the first safe coun­try in which they ar­rived. But the EU re­fuses to en­force its own bor­ders and laws on asy­lum (sound fa­mil­iar?). Be­cause most of the EU mem­ber states have also laid down the wel­come mat, thou­sands con­tinue to pour in daily. In Ger­many alone, an es­ti­mated 1.5 mil­lion Mus­lims are ex­pected.

If the EU were se­ri­ous about tak­ing in gen­uine “refugees,” it would have fol­lowed Aus­tralia’s ex­am­ple of pro­cess­ing all refugees off­shore. Those who qual­ify as ac­tual refugees are then brought on­shore to be fur­ther pro­cessed. All oth­ers are sent back to their coun­tries of ori­gin.

But the EU is ap­par­ently in­tent on com­mit­ting con­ti­nen­tal sui­cide — largely be­cause of mis­guided World War II guilt con­cern­ing “dis­placed per­sons” and a de­sire to re­plen­ish a de­clin­ing work­force. It will take all com­ers, re­gard­less of who they are, why they are com­ing to Europe and what they in­tend to do once there.

In Vi­enna I vis­ited the main train sta­tion and “refugee” camp, through which the ma­jor­ity are com­ing into cen­tral Europe. Most were en route to Ger­many, whose chan­cel­lor, An­gela Merkel, has thrown open the doors to them.

The place was crawl­ing with po­lice. A few vol­un­teers told me that se­cu­rity was a se­ri­ous is­sue — rape, as­sault, child abuse, theft, mur­der — so the gov­ern­ment had in­creased the po­lice and mil­i­tary pres­ence.

Con­trary to the nar­ra­tive that most of the “refugees” are fam­i­lies es­cap­ing the march of ISIS, most are, in fact, young men. I did see some women and chil­dren, but they were the dis­tinct mi­nor­ity.

In fact, 80 per­cent of the “refugees” are men. Many of them say that once they get asy­lum, they will take ad­van­tage of EU pol­icy to bring in the rest of their fam­i­lies.

Per­haps they will, per­haps they won’t. Per­haps it de­pends on what they in­tend to do once set­tled. Prior to the Paris at­tacks, ISIS had claimed that it had sev­eral thou­sand fight­ers in cen­tral Europe. They did not op­er­ate in a vac­uum. There is also a grow­ing al Qaeda, Ira­nian-loyal mili­tia and Mus­lim Broth­er­hood pres­ence. Re­ports of Shariah en­claves are on the rise.

At the Vi­enna train sta­tion, we ap­proached two women sit­ting be­hind a sign marked “lawyer” and asked po­litely what ser­vices were pro­vided. One of them snapped, “Le­gal.” When we then asked what per­cent­age of the refugees were Mus­lims ver­sus Chris­tians, she replied an­grily, “Does that make a dif­fer­ence?”

We were told that many Mus­lims turned away food pro­vided by the In­ter­na­tional Red Cross be­cause it was stamped with a Chris­tian cross. We were also told that many of the men carry weapons, knives specif­i­cally, which they of­ten use to threaten those try­ing to help them.

Many are in­creas­ingly us­ing tac­tics such as hunger strikes, law­suits and threats of violence to force Ger­man au­thor­i­ties to meet their ever-grow­ing list of de­mands, from free health care to their own sin­gle-fam­ily homes — while laugh­ing at de­mands for as­sim­i­la­tion.

Even be­fore the Paris at­tacks, the Mus­lim flood had prompted a back­lash, with mas­sive protests and op­po­si­tion par­ties gain­ing across Europe. Af­ter the at­tacks, France and sev­eral other coun­tries im­posed strict border con­trols. Yet de­spite the lat­est round of terror and the ris­ing na­tional se­cu­rity risks, the in­va­sion con­tin­ues un­abated.

Mean­while, its waves are crash­ing upon our own shores. The Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion has an­nounced that the United States will ac­cept 200,000 “refugees.” More to come — and all el­i­gi­ble for full so­cial wel­fare ben­e­fits. This dove­tails with the ex­ist­ing Refugee Re­set­tle­ment Pro­gram, which the ad­min­is­tra­tion has used to bring in tens of thou­sands of Mus­lims, of­ten set­tling them in red or pur­ple states. Not a co­in­ci­dence.

Europe is quickly reach­ing the point of no re­turn, af­ter which its trans­for­ma­tion will be ir­re­vo­ca­ble. We have more time to pre­vent such a trans­for­ma­tion here, but that time may be shorter than we think.

The Is­lamic Tro­jan Horse looks next to Amer­ica. Will we let it in? Monica Crowley is ed­i­tor of on­line opin­ion at The Wash­ing­ton Times.
