Reader comment on item: Muslim Migration into Europe: Eurabia Come True?

Submitted by Frank Hepple (Australia), Dec 17, 2015 at 00:19

Daniel speaks a lot of truth. However, he overlooks several facts. Jesus did not kill a single Jew. Muhammad killed thousands. Jew killing is not a part of Jesus' teaching, but it is part of Islamic scripture, ordered by Muhammad, so killing Jews is Unchristian and defies Jesus' teaching, whereas killing Jews obeys Muhammad's teaching and is still faithfully followed today by many Muslims in many countries, and there is no Islamic scripture telling them to stop.

There is a longstanding myth of a "Golden Age" of widespread kind, harmonious and friendly relations between the conquering Muslins and the conquered Jews and Christians of Spain, North Africa, and the Middle East, enduring over a thousand years. This myth has been largely debunked by decades of painstaking research by a Jewish lady writing under the name of Bat Yeor. The likelihood is that Jews could not escape from the clutches of Islam, once in it, because of the imposition of the Islamic practice of dhimmitude introduced by Muhammad and still perpetuated today. The slave-like system of dhimmitude results in a Stockholm Syndrome, whereby the Jewish victims denied their abject subjugation and praised their persecutors, the Muslims. Christianity had no equivalent system of entrapment, so Jews could escape from Europe but not from Islam.

Certainly Nazism was evil, but Islam has developed ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Quaeda, and many other evil organizations, I think, equally evil.

In 1943 dhimmitude was in a recession caused by European colonisation which suppressed the practice. Sadly, now colonisation has receded, dhimmitude is returning.
