Barbarians At The Gates

Fjordman, courtesy Dymphna, at the Gates of Vienna (a must read) has written a terrific post, A New Oslo Peace Process? that discusses unfolding (and cataclysmic) changes that are occurring in the Scandinavian countries.

The changes are not negotiated, nor have they come about as about as a result of popular mandate. Instead, we are witnessing an invasion of sorts, and the Scandinavians are capitulating under the threat of violence.

Fjordman's post has a lot of interesting and informative links, but they are in no way to be misconstrued as the primary point of his message. What comes across, clear as a bell, is a warning: If we do not defend freedom and democracy, we will pay the price. If, in our inaction, we choose to put blinders on, the price we pay will be particularly bloody. It is not a matter of 'Islamophobia'- that would be easy to deal with. The real issues lies with the way the Norwegians and Swedes have chosen to deal with- or not deal with- violence and crime. There is no doubt that crime in these countries are being committed by Muslims. There is also no doubt that most of these crimes would not be tolerated in the countries the immigrants come from.

That said, immigrants commit these crimes because they can and because they fear no real retribution. In addition, the local communities are not communities in the European sense. Woe unto the child from an immigrant Italian, Irish or Jewish neighborhood that misbehaved. There were hundreds of parents to admonish- and punish- those who chose to transgress. There was no neighborhood 'tough' that scared any grandmother or elderly aunt.

In many European Islamic enclaves, violence and terror have become the order of the day. Rape is commonplace and violence is ignored. All the while, the immigrant community cowers in fear. Why? Because as was discovered in France at the time of the Paris riots, there are religious leaders that condone and even encourage such behavior. Communities are torn apart. To reject the violence and terror is to reject the faith, a bargain many are not yet ready to make.

Fjordman points to a horrific story:

“The 17 year old Somalian has several serious crimes on his conscience, but the worst is probably the rape of a young girl at Hoybraaten (Oslo suburb) one year ago. Oslo Court states that the rape was unusually brutal, and lasted for several hours. The young girl was threatened with a knife and beaten. The Somalian choked the girl so brutally and for so long, that the medical doctor who afterwards treated the girl, said that she could have died. Her voice has changed. The girl is now suffering from severe psychological problems in the aftermath of the attack. The Youth was sentenced to four and half years in prison, where three years was made conditional, which means he will serve only one and a half years. The sentence also included another rape, where his Norwegian-Moroccan friend raped a 13 year old girl, whilst the Somalian helped to threaten her and keep guard. She was also brutally treated, and is experiencing serious problems after the experience. The Court states that the girl was harassed by the family of the Norwegian-Moroccan and his friends. It went so far that the girl was angry at her own mother for giving the name of the rapists to the police. The girl wanted to pay the offenders to make them leave her alone. Her psychological condition became so bad she had to be forcibly sent to a psychological institution. Her schooling is destroyed.”
In addition, Fjordman discusses the “war against Swedes” with insight. He sees that war as a preamble to another kind of world war. She may be right. It is clear much of Europe and the west do not recognize the symptoms or even use the same language. As we noted in Speaking In Tongues And Other Political Realities,
An enemy is someone with whom we, as individuals and as a community, have fundamental differences. An enemy has values and beliefs, that are very different than out own. An enemy wants to deprive us of our beliefs and values, because that enemy finds our beliefs repulsive or threatening to their own. Enemies will fight to the death, should they choose to engage us or we choose to engage them.

There are people who believe that enemies are opponents- that is, they can reasoned with and rationalized with and common ground can be had. Believing that an enemy can be an opponent is what led much of Europe to appease Hitler, in the beginning. Herr Hitler, it was believed, was after all a European. Surely he could be reasoned with. Surely he would respond to the rational idea that war was catastrophic.
The Scandinavians are in denial. If enemies were so easy to come by from within Europe, it is nothing more than absurd to believe that a population, manipulated by those with an evil and violent agenda, are no more than opponents.

Read Fjordman's post carefully. His words may prove to be prophetic:

With current trends remaining unchanged, native Norwegians will be a minority in their own capital city within a couple of decades, a situation that has never happened before since the foundation of Oslo a thousand years ago. Judging from all experience with Muslims previously, non-Muslim Norwegians will be ruthlessly persecuted, either cornered into a civil war or forced to flee from what was once their country. Newcomers move into an area and brutalize the natives who have become too soft to uphold themselves. There is nothing new about this scenario; it has been going on for thousands of years, as long as mankind has existed. It is the harsh law of nature. What is unique in this case is that the original inhabitants of this country are forced to fund their own colonization and eventual extinction by their own leaders, who portray this as an act of “tolerance.” I’m pretty sure that hasn’t happened before.
There comes a time we must not only defend our lives and property, but the values we cherish.
