>But immigration to the West is taking place, especially by Muslims. Impelled by overpopulation, poverty, dictatorships, and civil wars in their homelands, they arrive in the West with a robust sense of religious superiority and cultural confidence. Imposing Islamic mores takes time, but many signs point to a shift now underway, such as cathedral mosques arising in Western capitals, criticism of Islam becoming taboo, polygamy expanding, governments funding for Islamist charities, even changing rules at municipal swimming pools. This process moves ahead as relentlessly and quietly as does the contraction of indigenous populations.

Very true. However, I would add that a more sinister tool of Islamists in the West (most marked in England) is what Nassim Nicholas Taleb called "Minority Rule"

I urge your readers to read Taleb's article in this link and the title is: "The Most Tolerant Wins, The Dictatorship of the Small Minority."

The title very well explain the process of Islamization and it goes as follows: A few Muslim zealots demand only Halal food and wait. And in due time food consumed will be Halal food and we can see this happening in Great Britain and even in NYC. Most food trucks seem to serve only Halal food.

This also explains the Islamization of Egypt, Iraq, Palestine, and Syria very well. A Muslim man marries a Christian woman and her children are Muslims per Islamic law (there is a papyrus from Egypt where a mother sent a letter to her son. She has a Coptic name and the son has a Muslim name. And the letter is written in Coptic/Egyptian and the process of Islamization began) and it takes hundreds of years for the society to become fully or almost fully Islamized. As for Arabization the outcome is usually in favor of it the closer the country is to the epicenter of Islam or Saudi Arabia. So we might have in let us say a 100 years from now Great Britain that is majority Muslim but the spoken language is still English. More so because the mother tongue of most Muslims in England is a language other than Arabic.

So this is how Taleb explains it (and I'm paraphrasing: A Halal eater will never eat non Halal food. But a non Halal eater is not banned from eating Halal food

et voila let us say Burger King will only offer Halal food and the process of Islamization goes on hand in hand with the tyranny of few Islamists

Here is the link to the article


So how do we stop this slow death of the Western civilization? It is either to become intolerant of these practices or to continue to be tolerant and the West will decline. No simple answer here
