Neo-Colonialism - Muslims Settling the West

Reader comment on item: Merkel's Historic Folly

Submitted by Robert (United States), Sep 9, 2017 at 10:50

Dear Daniel Pipes,

You've transcribed here another insightful analysis of yours.
You emphasize Culture preference.
This of course gets twisted by the Left as equivalent to Racism, etc.
The problem with the Left is that it often glorifies the Underdog no matter what.

In the United States, it was the Native American
who suffered from Colonialism
-it would have been better
to let him, or her, live free from Modernity - as the implications go.

Without developing this train of thought
I want to jump to the issue
of the Colonization of Europe
by the Muslims of the Middle East.
Opposing a Religion which,
in its current phase of development
is itself Sexist, Intolerant, anti-Democratic,
and dangerously ISLAMIST
is not an instance of RACISM.

Racism is a European 19th century crackpot notion.
Today we know much more about the DNA of Humans.
We also know that all our ancestors originated in Africa
and even had sex with a different branch of Humanoids - the Neanderthals.

Now I want to break to another relevant issue,
which involves the Summer Olympic Games
that were introduced in 1894 by
Pierre de Coubertin sought to promote international understanding through sporting competition.
Perhaps what we need is International Cultural "Olympic" competition
to show case Cultural accomplishments.
Can you imagine what would be show cased?
A Catwalk by Sharia glad women in their garb?
Anyway, I imagine you get my drift here.

Cultural Excellence, which is dominated by Western countries,
is not equivalent to reinterpretation as Racial Inferiority.
To be sure, the ancient Greeks required three (3) things
of a Competitor in an Olympiad:
The He be a Man, a Greek, and Naked.
Today, one can be a Woman, or Transsexual, etc., a Non-Greek
but a Citizen of a UN Nation-State, and practically Nude,
judging by the costumes worn, or clad athletes.

Unlike "Race," an unscientific word which is best approximated by the color of one's skin,
which unlike a Snake's skin, cannot be changed much, except by staying out of the Sun,
Culture can be Adopted, except for one's stubborn refusal to recognize
the INFERIORITY of ISLAMISM in relation to MODERNITY.
And contemporary ISLAM breeds ISLAMISM.
That's also evidenced by the rise of ISIS
in the Heartland of Glorious Arab Islam in Baghdad (Iraq) and Damascus (Syria)
when Arabs had Plumbing
but Europeans pissed in the staircase of their Castle
during the Christian DARK AGES before the Crusades.
