O carte pentru eurocentrici: Christopher Caldwell, Reflections on the Revolution In Europe: Immigration, Islam, and the West

Caldwell frames the issue of Muslim immigration to Europe as a question of whether you can have the same Europe with different people. The author, a columnist for the Financial Times and a senior editor at the Weekly Standard, answers this question unequivocally in the negative. He offers a brief demographic analysis of the potential impact of Muslim immigration—estimating that between 20% and 32% of the populations of most European countries will be foreign-born by the middle of the century—and traces the origins of this mass immigration to a postwar labor crisis. He considers the social, political and cultural implications of this sea change, from the banlieue riots and the ban on the veil in French public schools to terrorism across Europe and the question of Turkey’s accession to the E.U. Caldwell sees immigration as a particular problem for Europe because he believes Muslim immigrants retain a Muslim identity, which he defines monolithically and unsympathetically, rather than assimilating to their new homelands. This thorough, big-thinking book, which tackles its controversial subject with a conviction that is alternately powerful and narrow-minded, will likely challenge some readers while alienating others.

Review
“In this book, Christopher Caldwell presents a daring, thoroughly researched and provocative view of the Islamic revolution underway in Europe. It’s a chilling account of how complacency, moral relativism and socialist dogma froze the European imagination while the agents of radical Islam proceeded, sure-footed, to claim Europe neighborhood by neighborhood. There have been many wake-up calls to alert Europeans to the challenges of immigration and the threat of Islam, but if anything should thaw the minds of the European leadership, it is this book.” —Ayaan Hirsi Ali

“Among the many brilliant things Christopher Caldwell has done in Reflections is write a how-not-to book about immigration.  Once again Europe has shown us the way—to go wrong.  Thanks to Caldwell’s careful reporting and keen analysis we know exactly what we shouldn’t do when new people move to our country.” —P.J. O’Rourke

“In Reflections on the Revolution in Europe, Christopher Caldwell combines an authentically Burkean historical breadth of vision with a reporter’s keen eye for detail. No one can seriously doubt after reading this book that large-scale immigration, particularly of Muslims, is in the process of transforming Europe profoundly. From the strife-torn banlieues of Paris to the multiplying minarets of Middle England, as Caldwell shows, we are a very long way indeed from the merry multicultural melting-pot of bien-pensant fantasy.” —Niall Ferguson, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History, Harvard University, and author of The War of the World: Twentieth-Century Conflict and the Descent of the West

    Islamizarea inevitabila ce va surveni in deceniile urmatoare este inca un subiect straniu pentru publicul din Romania si unul tabu pentru occidental. Islamizarea cuplata cu decrestinarea vor schimba radical si definitv fata continenutlui.

    Europa a renuntat la valorile ei de baza odata cu renuntarea la crestinism. In loc sa ceara asimilarea imigrantilor musulmani, face exact contrariul: convingerile marxiste ale majoritatii elitei europene o impinge la respingerea crestinismuluii si acceptarea islamismului.. marxismul si teama de a nu jigni sensibilitatile musulmanilor imping Europa si europenii spre adaptarea la islam. Iar aceasta miscare este incurajata de revoltele violente ale musulmanilor din ce in ce mai frecvente. Cu ocazia razboiului din Gaza din iarna mi-a fost greu sa cred ca ce vad este real: musulmani alergind politia in centrul Londrei, salutul nazist si „moarte evreilor” in centrul Copenhagai si Stocholmului, etc. Si nu vad cum ar putea fi evitata escalarea acestui fel de comportament pe viiotr.

    Un prieten din Belgia cu care am atins subiectul imi spunea ca el este sigur ca in maxim 20 de ani nu se va mai putea trai normal acolo, si ca va vinde totul si va parasi Europa. Din toti belgienii cu care am vorbit despre planurile lor de termen lung, doar unul mi-a spus ca intentioneaza sa ramina in tara pe termen nedefinit, nu se gindeste la plecare. Un alt lucru care m-a intristat: l-am intrebat pe tipul asta daca el, cu prietenii lui apropiati, pot vorbi deschis despre musulmani si imigratie in Belgia. Mi-a spus ca nu, toata lumea va incerca sa schimbe subiectul, e tabu, complet tabu. Nivelul de control al mintii este mai mare deci ce aveau romanii sub Ceausescu. Intre prieteni parintii nostrii nu se jenau sa spuna ce aveau pe suflet.

    Nu stiu daca iti amintesti de intimplarea in care patronul unui pub din UK a fost arestat pentru ca a pus laolalta 2 taieturi din Daily Mail: una care arata ca in anul 2007 (daca nu ma insel) au parasit UK peste 200.000 de englezi si au intrat in peste 500.000 de imigranti.

    Tind sa cred ca fenomenele de genul asta sint premeditate, pentru ca sint prea usor de prevenit. Intr-o democratie sanatoasa alegatorii isi schimba conducatorii, intr-o tara ca UK in ziua de azi, si din pacate mare parte a Europei occidentale, fenomenul opus este valabil: elitele nu mai sint multumite de „proles”, deci ii schimba.

    Musulmanii vota in proportie de 95% cu stinga politica, iar stinga face tot ce ii sta in putere pentru a le cistiga voturile in continuare.
