Self Suicide vs. Suicide/Homicide Bombers

When a civilization decides to commit suicide it does so without knowing that it is doing so. A civilizational suicide is committed by numerous policy errors of omission and commission over a long period of time by its policy makers or political leaders. These bureaucrats and leaders rarely recognize their mistakes or learn from their previous mistakes. Such mistakes happen over time, ever so progressively, that they remain unrecognizable by most people. They rarely speak against such policies, afraid to be seen as politically incorrect. But those with foresight, able to visualize the possible effects of current policies, are often ignored or ridiculed when they express possible looming dangers, as fear-mongers and xenophobists. Over decades however changes brought about such mistakes become clear but impossible to correct. Such is the fate of western civilization. It is committing suicide as a result of its ill-gotten policies of human rights and multiculturalism.

Western civilization, based on Judaeo-Christian values, values emanating from Judaeo-Christian beliefs, giving rise to Eurocentric view of life and the world, superiority of Christianity over other faiths, superiority of (West) European ‘race’, people, culture over others, giving rise to the rule of law, downgrading divine right of king, development of democratic institutions, rise of industrialization, technological and scientific advancements, modernization, growth of Weberian Protestant ethics; rationalism of inquiry and scientific thought to replace belief in faith; infatuation with individualism, personal liberty, and human rights replacing community and national welfare; downplaying, and even downgrading, one’s own culture in favour of others; promoting multiculturalism for the benefit of those who despise multiculturalism in their own jurisdictions; doubting one’s own values, growing self-doubt, seeking forgiveness for past mistakes (oh, father! forgive me for my sins for I have been ever so sinful … mea culpa); grieving and apologizing for ancestral deeds; granting rights to denizens over one’s own citizens; accepting, even encouraging, armies of unarmed immigrant invaders through self-imposed policies of asylum and refuge; affording legal aid to illegal im/migrants, costing the state millions of dollars, to contest the state’s right to deport illegal immigrants; promoting ever-growing legalism and role of lawyers interested only in making money while promoting illegal immigrants’ interests at all costs; refusing to honour majority opinion over minority interests of dubious nature; attracting foreign students to learn one’s secrets; giving one’s hard-earned technological and scientific secrets to nationals of other cultures interested only your eventual destruction; inviting others to one’s sanctum sanctorium of knowledge irrespective of others’ avowed claim to destroy you; are just a few examples that Western countries led by the Unites States have undertaken to destroy themselves.

Western civilization is under attack. It is under attack from inside and outside. But it will not be destroyed by outsiders from outside but from outsiders who have come inside. These insiders are the Trojan horse. The Trojan horse is inside the gate. The gate is ajar and the enemy is entering at will. Destruction of the Western castle will not be from outside sources but sources inside the castle who have taken positions at important locations replacing loyalist old guards in the name of diversity, multiculturalism, and human rights. Western nations need to wake up to the threat imposed by its own leaders unwilling to confront reality. The reality is that there is a clash of civilizations. One civilization must give way to the other for permanent peace and order. It would be either Pax Islamica or pax Americana. The earlier it is understood better it is for both: the Islamic and the Western world. The Islamic world knows it is on the move. It is going to regain it medieval glory by reaching the gates of Vienna and making most of Europe an Islamic state. The European Union (EC) should realize that America is their only hope though the USA acted against their interest in 1956 in the Suez crisis. The Americans and Europeans need to synchronise their policies vis-a-vis the Islamic World. The Islamic world, though often quarrelsome amongst itself, is united in its aim to destroy the Western, Christian, Jewish and non-Muslim institutions all over the world. There are currently over fifty (54) Islamic majority countries. There are dozens of Islamic organizations that wield enormous propaganda and power in international circles. When they combine their forces with other non-Muslim African and Asian countries the non-Western world can undermine Western position at will. To correct this imbalance Western countries need to discard their ill-founded enamour with multiculturalism, human rights, and refugee and asylum policies. It needs to stop the rape and usurpation of its cultural and political life by non-Western elite steeped in western idiom through Western education. Islamic elite in Western educational institutions is not interested in strengthening secular life style. It aims at destroying Christian institutions and secular law, replacing it with Islamic institutions (Islamic Parliament of Great Britain is one example) and Sha’ria law. One Muslim youth told me during a discussion in London: we will destroy democracy with democratic means.

If democracy means power at the poll, and that power comes from the votes, and the votes come from the people, and when those people are immigrants, descendants of non-immigrants, many of whom are non-Christians, and when district after district becomes immigrant-majority district, many of the elected officials are going to be favour immigrant-leaning policies. Many local and national institutions will be controlled by immigrants or their descendants. Western democracy is in danger of self-destruction through democratic means. The proof is in the pudding. Curiously Islam is not a lover of democracy, at least democracy Western-style. There are few Islamic democratic countries. If that is an indication of things to come then most of the Western world, once it has been islamicized through immigration and religious conversion to Islam, will not be democratic. Once democracy goes so go(es) the rule of law, judicial independence, separation of church and state, rights of minorities, religious accommodation, freedom of religion ("there is no compulsion in religion as long as you are a Muslim") as we know it now, etc.

Western countries need to wake up. They need to see the future as it is emerging. Only a man of vision will save the West from self-destructing itself. Wake up before it is too late. Fight for your rights and your values now, otherwise it will be too late. 9/11 20/20 04.
