Resist Now

Reader comment on item: Jihad through History
in response to reader comment: You're right

We are heading towards a bloody showdown, just as soon as we overcome our reluctance for violence, a reluctance that the Islamists apparently don't have.

Two world wars have made us too pacifistic for our own good, for our own survival as European cultures, products of the Enlightenment fighting the Unenlightened medievalists. No, we are not helped by relativists and defeatists, nor by Leftists who think that appeasement will bring social harmony. It will not.

Islam has been trying to conquer the West since it launched its jihad against Spain and Eastern Europe. This third attempt at colonization and subversion is only the latest. The motive simply is to appropriate what Islamic countries have been unable produce themselves: Science, Technology, a world of knowledge (which they most likely will toss into the flames). Not since Naziism have we been confronted with such Darkness. Welcome the battle to come for it will be decisive.
