The author of the article below, Mr. Guy Milliere, an excellent journalist and writer, titles his article “Europe Surrenders to Radical Islam,” when the title should have read and been — Europe Surrenders to Islam.
What has taken place in all of Europe is not RADICAL Islam taking over, but plain old Islam as it has always been and always will be. The error is in the European and Western mind in its great ignorance of Islam and refusing to learn and understand what Islam is — not radical Islam — not extremist Islam — JUST WHAT ISLAM REALLY IS!
The European, American, Western, non-Islamic mind imagines there to be two distinct and clear segments within Islam and I’m not talking Shiite and Sunni. The European, American, Western and non-Islamic mind of the majority masses imagine one of the segments to be peaceful, desiring to be like them, thinking in grave error Islam to be a “religion” and as such something “good,” for how could any “religion” be based in evil? Islam is NOT a religion. Islam is an all-consuming religious, political, belief system of indoctrination beginning at birth among all Islamists — not just the poor or uneducated. Learn this truth people of the West! The Western mind must cease in thinking that the members of Islam (if they can even bring themselves to associate the purveyors of these atrocities with Islam) that commit crimes? Rape? Reign down constant terror on the West as “radical” and “extreme” when in fact they are just the more active members within Islam carrying out the doctrines of Islam contained within the Qur’an. Not fundamentalist vs. secular. Just Islam being Islam. Nothing radical about it.
The greatest success a people at war with other people they are at war with, those they view as their enemy, is to be able to control what their enemy thinks. Granted, wars always resort to weapons and carrying out understood by all acts of war but it is in the control of information, in creating and spreading propaganda, in capturing the mind of the enemy where one can achieve its greatest advantage and strength surpassing its firepower and weapons stockpiles. Every fledgling despot, tyrant, dictator and start up terrorist organization knows this truism no matter the amount of weapons they start out with.
Islam has been masterful in their incredible worldwide sleight-of-hand magic show captivating and controlling their audience. Immediately after declaring war on America, Europe, the West and all non-Islamists on 9/11/2001 they had America, Europe and the West staring wide-eyed mouths agape as they were pulling rabbits out of hats doing their feigned “we’re people of peace” routine, and they even worked the crowds as the best sleight-of-hand shysters do, pulling someone from the audience to lend credibility to their act. In this case they pulled the sitting President of the United States to appear “on stage” in New York City at one of their “theaters,” their mosque complete with well known imam to stand on that stage and declare to the world that Islam and Islamists are a “religion” and “people of peace” and we certainly aren’t at war with Islam while the stench was still in the air around him and all of New York City, while the rubble still burned and smoldered, and every “soldier” who “attacked America in an act of war” was a Saudi Arabian Islamist. “Go out and shop and don’t worry, we have this under control…”
Fast forward. Islam has overtaken all of Europe. Islam bloomed and “seeded” itself in all of Africa and the Middle East in open rebellion as it grew and spread into Europe and the West. Islam now boldly carries out its open warfare weekly. In plain sight for all to witness with most still denying the truth! Still refusing to acknowledge this is a war! Easy to understand, really, because while one side — Islam clearly knows itself and its foundations, its roots, and remains true to those lies and atrocities, the West is lost. The West lost its way. The West in its myriad “do your own thing,” rebellion against God, Jesus Christ, the Bible, and faith in the foundations which carried generation upon generation of Western people now are aimless, scattered, lost in their thinking and into self, into serving evil and fleeting pleasures, into every sin and abomination and permissive liberal ideology under the sun. The people of the West are ignorant of the fact this is a spiritual war since the majority of the people of the West no longer are a spiritual people serving God and Christ any longer. The people of the West are like Americans were in the 1930’s and early 1940’s until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor — thinking themselves apart from the evil the world was engrossed in. Denying and deluding themselves. Oh, Hitler and the Nazi’s couldn’t be THAT BAD! They surely would not come to America to conduct war and terror! It wasn’t “our fight” we were not at war — everyone else was. We were going to remain “neutral.
Well, evil doesn’t take time off, rest for the weekend, or ever sleep. Evil doesn’t care about your ignorance it merely enjoys how ignorant you are so it can spread further, infect more, kill more and enslave more. Evil is whispering in billions of ears continually, continue to be “tolerant,” continue to be “inclusive,” continue to eat of the lies I tell you and walk in the darkness I put in front of you!
The European, American, Western, non-Islamist mind malfunctions and fails in its understanding of Islam. It does not know Islam. It is ignorant of Islam. It treats Islam as would a person treating all serpents, or all spiders equally in its liberal, modern-day indoctrinated mind founded on fallacies rather than history and facts, believing most harmless and venom-less until personally bitten and ailing from the poisonous bite. The European, American, Western non-Islamist mind views and believes in Islam among the over 1,600,000,000 worldwide adherents mostly are harmless, non-venomous beings refusing to learn, acknowledge, know their origin, history, and actual beliefs.
They do not know or understand the Holy Bible.
They do not know or understand history. And if they have a modicum of knowledge of history? For the greater part they feel GUILTY for history only knowing in small part the truth and having that GUILT imposed on them by operatives working for the enemy, the Adversary attempting to disarm and persuade them to its lies — with most falling prey to the poison injected into their hearts and minds and siding with the enemy at war with us refusing the truth. The enemy winning the majority of hearts and minds without ever having to strap on a suicide vest, crash a truck into a crowd at a market.
Make no mistake. Do not be deceived. What has taken place with the seed of Islam germinating and sprouting on 9/11/2001 after years lying dormant is EXACTLY as that seed has acted, grown, and bore its fruit throughout its history. It is of the same seed, the same root, and can only bear one kind of fruit. Just as Wolfsbane, Hemlock, or English Yew cannot bear any other flower, fruit, or seed than what it always has and begin producing something non-poisonous to humans, so, too, Islam cannot become anything other than what truly is, what it was created to be by the murdering, thieving, slave owner, rapist who began it all among the sons of Ishmael.
Islam is just being Islam.
Nothing “radical” about it.

Europe Surrenders to Radical Islam
- In spite of three attacks in three months, Britain does not seem to be choosing the path of vigilance and determination. June is not even over but the media barely talk about terrorism any more.
- Then, in the early hours of June 19, a man who acted alone drove a van into a crowd of Muslims leaving Finsbury Park Mosque in London: the main “threat” to the British right now was soon presented in several newspapers as “Islamophobia”.
- Decolonization added the idea that the Europeans had oppressed other peoples and were guilty of crimes they now had to redeem. There was no mention of how, throughout history, recruits to Islam had colonized the great Christian Byzantine Empire, Greece, Sicily, Corsica, North Africa and the Middle East, most of the Balkans and eastern Europe, Hungary, northern Cyprus and Spain.
- While most jihadist movements were banned by the British government, more discreet organizations have emerged and demurely sent the same message. The Islamic Forum for Europe, for example, depicts itself as “peaceful”, but many of those it invites to speak are anything but that. The Islamic Human Rights Commission uses the language of defending human rights to disseminate violent statements against the Jews and the West.
London, June 5, 2017. A minute of silence is held at Potters Field Park, next to the City Hall, to pay tribute to the victims of the London Bridge jihadist attack three days before. Those who came have brought flowers, candles and signs bearing the usual words: “unity”, “peace” and “love”. Faces are sad but no trace of anger is visible. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, gives a speech emphasizing against all evidence that the killers’ ideas have nothing to do with Islam.
A few hours after the attack, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May also refuses to incriminate Islam, but dares to speak of “Islamic extremism”. She was immediately accused of “dividing” the country. On election day, June 8, her Conservative party lost the majority in the House of Commons. Jeremy Corbyn, a pro-terrorist, “democratic socialist”, who demands the end of British participation in the campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS), led the Labour party to thirty more seats than it had earlier. In spite of three attacks in three months, Britain does not seem to choose the path of vigilance and determination. June is not even over but the media barely talk about terrorism any more. A devastating fire destroyed a building in North Kensington, killing scores of residents. Mourning the victims seems to have completely erased all memory of those killed in the terrorist attacks.
Then, in the early hours of June 19, a man who acted alone drove a van into a crowd of Muslims leaving Finsbury Park Mosque in London: the main “threat” to the British right now was soon presented in several newspapers as “Islamophobia”.
The United Kingdom is not the main Muslim country in Europe, but it is the country where, for decades, Islamists could comfortably call for jihad and murder. Although most jihadist movements were banned by the British government, more discreet organizations have emerged and demurely spread the same message. The Islamic Forum for Europe, for example, depicts itself as “peaceful”, but many of those it invites to speak are anything but that. One was Anwar al-Awlaki, who for years planned al-Qaeda operations until he was killed in Yemen in 2011 in an American drone strike. The Islamic Human Rights Commission uses the language of defending human rights to disseminate violent statements against Jews and the West.
The most flamboyant radical preachers have all but disappeared. The most famous among them, Anjem Choudary, was recently sentenced to five years and six months in prison for his open support of the Islamic State, but hundreds of imams throughout the country continue similar work. No-go zones, forbidden to the “infidels”, continue to grow in big cities, and sharia courts continue to dispense a form of justice parallel to, but different from, the national one. Khuram Shazad Butt, one of the three London Bridge terrorists, could raise the Islamic State flag in front of cameras, be the main character of a documentary on jihad in Britain and still be considered “low priority” by the police. Salman Abedi, the Manchester killer, travelled to Libya and Syria for training before he decided to act; he could easily cross borders without being stopped.

Attempts to sound an alarm are rare, and quickly dismissed. Left-wing British politicians long ago chose to look the other way and indulge in complicity. Conservatives did not do much to help, either: after the uproar sparked by Enoch Powell’s “Rivers of Blood” speech in 1968, British conservatives avoided the subject and became almost as complacent as their political opponents. In 2002, while portraying Islamism as the “new Bolshevism”, Margaret Thatcher noted that “most Muslims deplore” terrorism. She described the “jihadist danger” without saying a single word on radical Muslims spreading Islamism in her own country.
In 2015, David Cameron said, “We need far more Muslim men and women at the head of British companies, more Muslim soldiers at the highest command posts, more Muslims in parliament, Muslims in a position of leadership and authority”. He did not mention those who were joining jihad in London even as he was speaking.
When he was at the head of Britain’s UKIP party, Nigel Farage said that there is a Muslim “fifth column” in the country. He was ferociously criticized for these words. Paul Weston, chairman of the GB Liberty party, was arrested by the police in 2014 for reading in public a text on Islam written by Winston Churchill. One wonders how Churchill would be regarded today.
Britain — in spite of the Brexit referendum and even though it is more undermined by Islamization than most other European countries — is fully imbued with a European, defeatist state of mind that corrodes its existence and is present throughout Europe.
At the end of World War II, Europe was exhausted and largely destroyed. The idea that prevailed among politicians was that it was necessary to make a clean sweep of the past. Nazism was described as the rotten fruit of nationalism and military power, and the only war that seemed to have to be waged was a war against war itself. Decolonization added the idea that the Europeans had oppressed other peoples and were guilty of crimes they now had to redeem. There was no mention of how, throughout history, recruits to Islam had colonized the great Christian Byzantine Empire, Greece, Sicily, Corsica, North Africa and the Middle East, most of the Balkans and eastern Europe, Hungary, northern Cyprus and Spain. Cultural relativism gained ground. The anti-Western revision of history gradually gained ground in media, culture, politics and education.
Immigrants from the Muslim world arrived in increasing numbers. They were not encouraged to integrate or respect the countries to which they came. In school, their children were told that European powers had misbehaved towards the Muslim world and that Muslim culture was at least as respectable as the Western one, maybe even more
When violence erupted and riots took place, European politicians chose to placate them. European populations sometimes tried to resist, but they were constantly told that criticism of immigration and Islam is “racist”. They were intimidated, pushed to shut up.
What is happening now in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe is merely a continuation.
European political leaders all know that radical Islam has swept throughout the continent, that hundreds of Muslim areas are under Islamic control, that thousands of potential jihadists are there, hidden among the immigrants and ready to murder, and that the police are overwhelmed.
They know that radical Islam has declared war on the Western world and that it is a real war. They see that they are prisoners of a situation they no longer control and that reversing the course of events would involve drastic actions they are not ready to take, such as closing thousands of mosques, taking back lost territories by force, arresting thousands of suspects, and deporting foreign jihadists.
They are aware that an apparently unstoppable replacement of population is underway in Europe and that there will be more attacks. They speak as if to limit the damage, not prevent it.
European populations also see what is happening. They watch as entire areas of European cities become foreign zones on European soil; they view the attacks, the wounded, the corpses. It seems as if they have simply lost the will to fight. They seem to have chosen preemptive surrender.
British political commentator Douglas Murray writes in his important new book, The Strange Death of Europe: “Europe is committing suicide. Or at least its leaders have decided to commit suicide”. He then wonders if the Europeans will agree to go along with what is happening. For the moment, it seems, the answer is yes.
