Europe may not be Eurabia
The last three weeks have seen me enjoy the sights of Austria and Germany. Here are some of the recent views:
Cycled approximately 70km through some of the nice parts of Salzburg (Attersee actually):
One observation that I have made, is that Europe is not yet Eurabia. The Europe, or the more accurately, the nation states of Europe, despite all the accusations of dhimmitude, is not, I believe, going to be invaded by or yield to the hordes.
The nation states of Europe, and the examples of anti-dhimmitude relayed to me by close, conservative and wary friends are numerous and encouraging. I spent four hours discussing European anti-dhimmitude, amongst other topics, with a smart, sassy and young conservative lady. Her personal development and upbringing, which I will not discuss, place her in a position of learning and experience on politics and history of Europe. She displayed a strong sense of anti-Anglospheric rhetoric, a strong sense of distrust in the media and conveyed quite poignantly that Europe is aware of the threat within (and without) and that it will play the cards right at the right time. Note that this is one of the Fjordman Scenarios (Scenario 3 in fact).
Also spoke to a very dear and near aunt. She is also conservative, studied history for four years at university, has lived in Germany on and off for most of her life and who strongly dislikes the hordes. She has a strong conviction of Europe's ability to deal the invading hordes, a strong sense that the media is lying and betraying its people and a strong dislike of my pessimism of Europe's ability to survive the next century. The anecdotal defense of here positions where hard to argue. For example, there have been several instances where female Muslim teachers have been dismissed from the teaching roles for refusing to remove their headscarves whilst teaching students. Furthermore, there is debate in Germany regarding the tightening up of citizenship laws. Right now a church bell is ringing for 3 minutes marking 6PM.
As a result of these conversations, I think, that despite numerous examples of dhimmitude recently relayed by DhimmiWatch, JihadWatch and LittleGreenFootballs, the nation states of Europe should not be written off yet.
Update: This bit of news seems to confirm that at least Germany is anti-Dhimmi.
