Five Signs of Hope (Maybe) for Europe

Prince-CharlesEvery now and then readers of this site, while thanking me for my coverage of the Islamization of Europe, have kindly asked if it’s possible for me to provide an occasional break from the endlessly depressing accounts of jihad and appeasement and dhimmitude and, quite simply, report on some good news for a change.

Point taken. Here, in recognition of the hopeful message of Christmas and the New Year’s promise, is a year-end dose of tidings of – well, not great joy, but at least possible positive turnarounds on various fronts.

1. BRITAIN: Walking back a dhimmi policy

The Marks and Spencer story. This one went through the whole cycle (from proud corporate declaration of spineless dhimmitude to meek apology therefor) with incredible – and gratifying – rapidity.

Just a couple of days before Christmas, a customer of the posh London retailer told the Telegraph that a Muslim clerk had refused, albeit politely, to ring up her bottle of champagne because the item offended the clerk’s religious convictions. Confronted with this story, a spokesperson for M&S affirmed that, indeed, out of respect for Islam, the store had a policy of allowing Muslim workers to refuse to serve customers purchasing (for example) alcohol and pork, and to pass these haram customers on to other, less discriminating employees.

Result: a huge public outcry, including a Facebook page promoting an M&S boycott. Within hours, M&S was not only apologizing for its wrongheaded policy but (amusingly) insisting that, in fact, it had no such policy at all, and that in the champagne incident the store’s actual policy had not been properly followed.

2. FRANCE: Walking back a dhimmi report

Here’s another example of outraged reactions to dhimmitude having a real effect. Earlier this month, Le Figaro revealed the contents of a new report – commissioned by France’s socialist prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault – which recommended a veritable blizzard of revolutionary acts by the government, from renaming streets and squares after immigrants to prohibiting the mention of transgressors’ ethnicity in the news media. Among much else, school curricula would be dramatically transformed to make them radically multicultural. Accepting the report on November 13, Ayrault promised that the recommendations would be acted upon tout de suite.

Then the protests started pouring in. “It will no longer be up to immigrants to adopt French culture,” charged Jean-Francois Cope, head of the opposition UMP party, “but up to France to abandon its culture, its values, its history to adapt to the culture of others.” Geoffrey Didier, also of UMP, called the report “a crime against republican assimilation and another step in the communitarian strategy of the Socialist Party.” And National Front leader Marine Le Pen denounced it as “a “declaration of war on the French who are calling for an end to the policy of mass immigration and the reaffirmation of our republican laws and values.” The nationwide outrage led one commentator to describe Ayrault as having “shot himself in the foot.” Confronted with the reaction, Ayrault did a snappy about-face, saying meekly: “Just because I get a report doesn’t mean it’s government policy.”

3. BRITAIN: A Prince who May or May Not Be Snapping out of It

Over the years, Prince Charles’s gushing praise of Islam, his enthusiastic participation in Islamic ceremonies, and his occasional references to his own purportedly serious study of the religion have fed speculation that he was either a secret Muslim or was well on his way to becoming one. (A 1997 article in the Middle East Quarterly, entitled “Prince Charles of Arabia,” carefully sifted through the evidence for this proposition.) As recently as 2010, Charles gave a speech extolling Islamic “spiritual principles” as environment-friendly.

How surprising it was, then, to hear the Prince of Wales saying in a speech earlier this month that “we cannot ignore the fact that Christians in the Middle East are, increasingly, being deliberately attacked by fundamentalist Islamist militants.” Underscoring that he had been trying for twenty years “to build bridges between Islam and  Christianity,” he lamented that “we have now reached a crisis where the bridges are rapidly being deliberately destroyed by those with a vested interest in doing so, and this is achieved through intimidation, false accusation and organised persecution, including to Christian communities in the Middle East at the present time.” Refreshingly, he made no apparent attempt to draw a false moral equivalency, to put the crisis down to the usual “interreligious tensions”: no, Charles actually said that Muslims were persecuting Christians, and condemned it outright.

This doesn’t mean he’s now a hero of the counterjihad resistance, but it’s something.

4. NETHERLANDS: A King who May or May Not Be Snapping out of It

I’ve never, to say the least, been a fan of Willem-Alexander, who ascended to the Dutch throne this year upon the abdication of his mother. Beatrix was a notorious appeaser of Islam (opting, for example, to skip Theo van Gogh’s funeral and instead visit a Muslim community center), and in this respect Willem-Alexander didn’t seem to have fallen far from the Orange tree. Like Prince Charles, he’s publicly declared himself a student of Islam. Some years back, moreover, violating his own constitutional obligation to keep mum about politics, he responded to public statements by an elected Member of Parliament, Geert Wilders, by basically suggesting he clam up.

In short, I haven’t been inclined to expect much from this monarch. But all things are relative, and Dutch writer Joost Niemoller argued the other day that Willem-Alexander’s Christmas speech to his subjects revealed a sovereign who’s savvier than his mom about Islam. Now, I’ve read the speech, and don’t quite see it, but then again I’m not Dutch, and I haven’t made a study of Beatrix’s work in this genre, so I have to take Niemoller seriously when he says that the new king’s statements, however circumspect and coded, mark a real and promising departure. Whereas Beatrix delivered increasingly “militant” Christmas messages, which eventually became little more than party propaganda for the socialist D66 party, the king’s speech, maintained Niemoller, actually celebrated the message of Christmas – and thus the culture of the West – in a way that was decidedly non-multicultural. When he lamented the hatred that exists in the world, that’s passed down through the generations, and that leads to violence and terror, he didn’t speak the word Islam, but, Niemoller asserted, there could be no doubt that the king was “speaking about jihad.”

I want to believe Niemoller, but is his claim credible? I suppose we’ll know soon enough.

5. BRITAIN: A Prime Minister who May or May Not Be Snapping out of It

Like Charles and Willem-Alexander, British prime minister David Cameron has never been anyone’s idea of a counterjihadist. As recently as October, he announced the establishment of a new British Islamic Market Index and the introduction of the first Islamic bond, or sukuk, to be issued by a non-Muslim nation. Thanks to the UK’s accommodation of sharia banking law, Cameron bragged, London is now “the biggest center for Islamic finance outside the Islamic world.”

But now? There’s no evidence that Cameron has had a Damascan road experience, but something is arguably going on. In October, for example, even as he was celebrating those new developments in Anglo-Islamic banking, a task force he’d set up recommended new state powers to limit the spread of what it identified as violent extremist Islamism. To be sure, in familiar fashion, the panel was at pains to distinguish this radical phenomenon from what it called traditional Islam; but the important, even striking, part was its acknowledgment that there is a link between Islam and violence – and that it can be legitimate, in at least some cases, to describe Islam not as a benign religion but as a dangerous ideology. It’s not everything, but it’s a step – and it puts Britain way ahead of the FBI, State Department, and U.S. military when it comes to calling a spade a spade.

There have been other positive signs from the Cameron camp. Earlier this month, after Universities UK gave the go-ahead for universities to segregate men and women in lecture audiences at Muslim speakers’ request, Education Secretary Michael Gove accused Universities UK of “pandering to extremism,” and Cameron, following up on Gove, firmly condemned the policy – whereupon Universities UK quickly reversed itself. Then, a couple of days ago, came the news that Cameron’s Home Secretary, Theresa May, was stripping jihadists who’d gone to fight in Syria of their UK citizenship. Yes, it’s nothing more than a common-sense move, but common sense is precisely what’s been missing from Britain’s Islam policy for a long time.

In short: no, these aren’t earthshaking developments by any measure. But with counterjihad, as with jihad, every little bit counts.

    It’s about time Europe started waking up, and if we’re not careful in this country the same things will be happening here. Islam is not compatible with Western culture and living.

    • chuckie2u

      Judeo-Christian values aren’t compatable with the Secular Humanist cultural values of Europe or America. America has started its own version of shutting up Christians in the public square.

        The problem is not “secularists.” I ‘ll take any secularist over a Muslim in an instant. The problem is a decline the proportion of European-derived whites.

      • Candid Progressive

        No one is “shutting up” Christians. They still have the right to free speech, and excercise it frequently. The only people being silenced (in many liberal & mainstream venues) are people who speak out against Islam. I was banned twice at Daily Kos for speaking the truth about Islam, and I’m a heathen nature worshipper. It’s not a “Christian” thing; it’s an “Islamophobe” thing.

  • Jakareh

    Muslims take a maximalist position: Islam will conquer Europe and America. Unless we take a correspondingly uncompromising stance—Islam should be banished from Western countries altogether—they will be at an advantage and will eventually win.

        • bill

          Well, we may have a crack at survival, but only because of the free flow of information on the Internet. Statistics and news of Muslim atrocities were never covered by the media. The Internet may be Islam’s Waterloo.
          God bless the Internet.

    • Candid Progressive

      Agreed! I just don’t see how Islam can ever be reconciled with democracy and human rights. And it’s just too damn hard (if not impossible) to determine who is a stealth jihadi and who is not. Sooner or later, we’re going to have to show them the door, or else allow Western Civilization to be undermined & supplanted by the barbarism of Islam.
      I wish more of my fellow Lefties could see that Islam is inherently hostile to everything we progressives are supposed to stand for. Islam is conservatism taken to medieval levels.

      • Jakareh

        It’s good to hear from a sensible leftie, but I must take issue with this statement:

        “Islam is conservatism taken to medieval levels.”

        Islam, being wholly alien to Western civilization, stands apart from the right-left spectrum. It’s no more accurate to say Islam is conservative than to say it’s Marxist. I don’t know what your idea of conservatism is, but along with many other conservatives, I see conservatism not as an ideology but as the absence of one. Conservatism comes down to relying on what is tried-and-true rather than following some savior’s prescription for a utopia.

        • Candid Progressive

          Islam is definitely an ultra-conservative ideology. It’s not the American/Republican/Christian brand of conservatism, but it’s certainly conservative.

          Jakareh says: “…I see conservatism not as an ideology, but an absence of one.” That’s just silly! Conservatives are often rabid ideologues.

      • Lee

        “Sooner or later, we’re going to have to show them the door” – well said Candid Progressive! From a fellow-Lefty, of course Islamofascism is the antithesis of social-justice, and it’s a shame so many lefto-fascists have been allowed to infect leadership positions in leftist politics – effectively disenfranchising the working-class (who reject Islamofascism and are hated and sneered at by the lefto-fascists).

        Islam’s criminal incitement must be prosecuted as all other incitement to crime is, and when Islam’s teachings of Jihad and death for adulterers, homosexuals, apostates and blasphemers [i.e. all non-Muslims - who necessarily think Muhammad's claim to speak for "Allah" is a lie] are banned, Islam will essentially cease to exist.

        In addition, anyone who subscribes to an ideology which calls for the execution of our fellow-citizens (as above) in the ideal State *clearly* fails the character test for migrating or visiting civilized countries.

        • Candid Progressive

          Good points, Lee! I’m glad to hear from a fellow left-winger who “gets it” regarding Islam & the threat it poses.

          • Lee

            “I’m glad to hear from a fellow left-winger who gets it” – isn’t it incredible that the lefto-fascists have filthied our side of politics so much that the most reactionary and oppressive mistreatment of people is seen as a normal part of progressive politics! Of course a similar thing happened in Orwell’s time, hence his brilliant expose of these scum in ’1984′.

            Well, despite the fact that the fascists are incredibly aggressive and abusive toward anyone who disagrees with them, I remind myself I’m not alone by occasionally glancing at the Euston Manifesto of 2006 – signed by “a group of left wing academics, journalists, and activists” – it’s worth re-reading at Wikipedia if you ever despair as I sometimes have! (Not that I agree 100% with it.) I hope for the day when decent people take back control of our political parties, and end for all time the influence of the lefto-fascists – who I believe would capture less than 1% of the vote if left to create their own political parties.

  • Bamaguje

    The reported paltry signs of positive change are welcome but not enough.
    It will take another 9/11 type catastrophe for a complete turnaround by the dhimmi West.

    • autdrew

      I wish I could believe this. The US had 9/11, England got the train/bus bombings, Spain got train bombings, The US was attacked on our very own military base by one of our own soldiers, on American soil, England got a soldier hacked to death in the street, France has constant disgruntled “youth” violence as well as a few murdered Jews, not to mention the rapes, kidnappings, beatings, taking over neighborhoods & demanding women be covered & alcohol not be sold. In every case screaming from the top of their lungs that it is all for allah.
      What do we do? Tell them they didn’t really mean all that allahu akbar stuff. We grovel and beg them to tell us what the “real, root causes” are. So they say to fight until the world accepts allah & mohammad is his prophet. No, that’s not what it’s about at all, tell us how horribly racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamophobic we are, we are horrible people.
      Allahu Akbar, no you don’t mean that, wait! What are you doing with that sword?

    • Porkys2istan

      I have to agree with Bamaguje. With so many incidents, happening so often, spread across the entire globe, it’s almost unfathomable that the west has not acted sooner. These paltry signs of hope are WAY too little, MUCH too late.

      At this rate, by the time France or Denmark (and later Britain, then Canada) ‘wakes up’ it will be too late and non-muslims will be the minority. Ironically, when the non-muslim minority tries to take back ‘their’ country, THEY will be the ‘terrorists’.

      I know it’s sick, but I almost hope there’s another 9/11*. Something that kills not 3,000 but 30,000 or even 300,000. That many dead bodies might FINALLY wake the world up to the true nature of islam before it’s too late (and shut the people up who say, “well, ALL religions are bad and violent blah blah blah horse puckey”). Until that happens, keep looking for these little rays of hope in a giant sea of ever growing islamic darkness.

  • MukeNecca

    Theresa May, was stripping jihadists who’d gone to fight in Syria of their UK citizenship.

    Not all of them. FAR from it.
    Looking at the number of moslems that departed for Syria and those stripped from UK citizenship it seems like May’s decision applies only to those dead in action.

    Besides, being stripped from citizenship doesn’t mean they will be denied the re-entry to the UK. Such drastic steps are used only against islamophobes, f.ex. Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller.

    • Steve Bryant

      And Michael Savage.

      • MukeNecca

        Correct!

  • ObamaYoMoma

    no, Charles actually said that Muslims were persecuting Christians, and condemned it outright.

    The next step is to get the good prince to admit that Muslims are not just persecuting only Christians, but also all non-Muslim infidels alike as well and that building bridges between infidels and Muslims is an idiotic exercise in futility. Indeed, the perpetual jihad being waged all these many years against the Jewish infidels in Israel is just a smaller part of the greater worldwide global jihad being waged by all Muslims around the world against all religions and all infidels to ultimately make Islam supreme via both violent and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is divine Islamic totalitarian law.

    Indeed, mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage to the West is in reality non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the long-term strategic purpose of demographic conquest. As a matter of fact, no matter wherever Muslims migrate, they never ever assimilate and integrate, instead they force the host infidels to assimilate and integrate to Islam.

    It’s time to outlaw and ban political correct multiculturalism because it is a time bomb, just like it’s time to outlaw, ban, and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP.

    • Bamaguje

      Not all multiculturalism is bad.
      Hindus and Buddhists get along fine with the West.
      It’s just Muslims who give multiculturalism a bad name.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Political Correct Multiculturalism is not only a very destructive form of Cultural Communism, it is also a time bomb as well. Moreover, no one and certainly not me is morally equating Islam with true faith-based religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Christianity, especially since a close inspection of Islam reveals that it is a very rabid form of totalitarianism as opposed to being a true faith-based religion, as the freedom of conscience to choose to believe or not to believe is strictly controlled via the pain of death for blasphemy and apostasy. The only people that consider Islam to be a true faith-based religion are Muslims who don’t have a clue about faith-based religion and secular leftists who likewise also don’t have a clue.

      • Porkys2istan

        Actually there are a few backwards aspects to Hinduism like arranged marriages and the cast system. The difference between Hinduism and islam is that when Hindu children in the west reject these horrible things their parents DO NOT throw acid in their face, murder them, or even disown them.

        Islam has ten times as many repugnant aspects as Hinduism and backs every one of them up with threats of violence and terrorism.

    • Trapper

      Victoria proclaimed herself “defender of the faith” as had many sovereigns before her. You don’t suppose that we have a new one–we’ll see.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    To be sure, in familiar fashion, the panel was at pains to distinguish this radical phenomenon from what it called traditional Islam;

    Uhm the sole fundamental purpose of traditional mainstream orthodox Islam (the only kind) is the subjugation of all religions and all infidels into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is divine Islamic totalitarian law, to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world.

  • Jason

    Something even bigger that David missed out on. Something even more hopeful. All across Europe, Right Wing freedom parties are rising. UKIP is the 3rd largest party in the UK according to the latest polling, and they have an anti immigration stance. France also has seen a rise in anti immigrant parties. Amazingly, Wilders’ party is the largest part in Holland according to the polls. This is a sign more than anything else that people are waking up to Islam.

    It’s sweet, isnt it? The thing that might kill Islam in the West is the thing it hates the most, and what we love the most; Our freedom to choose our own government and live in a free society.

    Here’s a link, if anyone’s interested. There was also a post in Jihad Watch awhile ago, but I dont know when.

  • chuckie2u

    Maybe God has a sense of humor after all. The Brits and others have become Secular Humanists and reject any display of Diety. So the Muslims with a stricter version of Old Testament Law values are bringing their version of Moral Law to fill the spiritual void. In a few more years there will be no Whiskey,Beer or BBQ in all of Europe.

    • Georgina

      Secularism is the only thing standing between democracy and theocracy. Even the pope(s) think you have to ‘respect’ religions.
      If we stopped calling every critisism of religion ‘hate speech’, we could kick islam out in no time.

      • A Z

        There is a lot of criticism of religion which is not called ‘hate speech’. And it is mostly directed at Christians and then Jews.

        • Candid Progressive

          That’s true. Christianity & Judaism do receive a lot of (well-deserved) criticism these days; and while they sometimes get very upset, I’ve never seen any Christians or Jews threaten to kill anyone for disrespecting their religion, or try to get laws passed to ban that sort of criticism. In the 21st Century, only Muslims still do that sort of thing. As a general rule, only Muslims reject the principle of free speech, the foundation of civilized society.

            Interesting at 35 minutes before 7:28 Eastern you start commenting for the 1st time under this handle and have 5 comments already.

            I do not see what is well deserved about how *some* people go against the Roman Catholic Church.

            The way I see it the RC operates the same way as the Boys Scouts, the DOD or many other large organizations.

            “Bishop Accountability” criticizes. It seems to be a legit organization. they showed a “normal probability distribution curve for abuse. Their fair comment was that the number of abuse cases were coming down from a peak before the 1970s. They pointed out that may be the result of something the RC was doing or that people just have not reported newer cases yet. That seemed a sanguine comment to me and not one with which you could argue. Given the hyper publicity newer cases might come out faster than older cases, but, we don;t know that for fact. Anyway Bishop Accountability seems to be legit.

            Others are just piling on because the y want the RC gone so they can remake society in their own image.

            Given proportionality and seeing who is not criticized by which # of people,I would not agree with the words (well deserved).

          • A Z

            I have read & used the Statistics provided by the group Bishop Accountability. They graphed reports of abuse over the last century and showed that they were coming down before the LSM got involved.

            I regard their criticism of the RC as constructive criticism. Many many other groups I regard as destructive criticism. Their purpose is to destroy the RC so they can remake society in their own image.

            I see the RC operating like the Boy Scouts, DOD or many other large organizations. That is start bailing water, plug the leak and try to keep it quiet. It is the behaviour of large groups, corporate/organizational behaviour.

            So well deserved? I do not see the proportionality in the response. I see people wanting to gore other people’s cows/break their rice bowls. that is what I see

            BTW it is interesting that you just started posting under your handle at 6:55 Eastern time with a total of 5 comments so far on 3 day old stories (some of them). You got to wonder.

      • Candid Progressive

        Agreed! Secularists & religious skeptics can be a powerful force in the counter jihad, if more of them clue in regarding the threat of Islam. The most potent cure for the religious lunacy of Islam is reason & critical thinking, not rival superstitions.

    • fmobler

      Trust me. There has never been any BBQ in Europe.

    • Candid Progressive

      The problem is not a lack of respect for religion. The problem is a failure to properly appreciate Western culture (which was shaped by religious skeptics, as well as Christians & Jews), and a failure to see that Islam poses a serious threat to our more enlightened societies.

  • knowshistory

    the islamophilic fools mentioned above are taking their sweet time arriving at conclusions that they should have made long ago. the oppressed and soon to be replaced populations of their countries should be deposing them, and trying and punishing them for their crimes against their own countrymen. inviting known enemies who respond by killing your citizens and raping them is not much different from killing and raping in person, just more cowardly. why are these traitors being allowed to gradually decide that treason isnt the best policy, maybe? my money says next month they will be right back on the islamic bandwagon, and their reluctant resistance to islamic oppression will be forgotten.

      Actually, it’s a combination of two things that is driving the violence: Islam and blacks. Even without the Islam part, sub-Saharan Africa remains black. And that means violent — kind of like black neighborhoods (euphemistically known as “dangerous neighborhoods”) in America.

        It seems to me whites were pretty violent during the Migration period, Viking Age and Middle Ages.

        There was story of a violent man with dozen (?) sons. They all shared his disposition. Well he did not get along with the local jarl and others. Seeing himself out numbered he would not come out and fight or surrender. They burned him out. that is one way to clean up a gene pool people might say.

        They have identified a warrior gene. I would say it is needed or you get a society of supine p_ssies. Regardless of the have that gene allele or not a person properly socialized is not going to be a violent predator.

    Sounds more like moderate appeasing to the actual fact that the population is sick of all this anti-cultural anti-national anti-ethnic orientation. Too few too late. They are going with the wind not to lose their ranks. Should be tried for high treason as soon as the regimes will change. Then stopping the immigration, death penalty if necessary. And then massive deportations. No compromise made. This is not a joke. This kind of people will bring down civilizations if given the chance. Not only the future of a few nations but the future of all mankind is at stake.

    Why are people so anti-white??

    AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY??

    At what point would anti-whites allow whites such as this the right to protect
    their ethnic interests, to not be displaced in their country and have
    their society destroyed– all just so they can look good for the camera.
    Moral grandstanding and PC prudery aside, one would not dare argue for
    the converse–that would be called Genocide.

    Anti-whites expect an entire race to disappear from the face of the earth without even mentioning, not even whispering about it.

    Nobody’s flooding Africa with Non-Africans and giving them free health care, affirmative action and special privileges.

    Only White Countries are doing it, only White children are affected, and only White politicians are allowing it.

    Self loathing whites contributing to their own genocide. What a sad state our civilization is in. I hope that Europe rolls back Islam because if they fall, North America will be sure to follow in a few decades.

    It may be that the Monarchy, or at least someone in it, is beginning to grasp the fact that what brings England down brings down the Royal Family as well. Good for HRH Prince of Wales. He’s sane after all.

    Multiculturalism just does not work especially considering Islam The best for all THRY should be deported back to their country of origin. Their “Weltanschaung” and culture is not compatible with the West and Democracy. Islam values death we value life we want frees speec, equality and fairness our laws, they are the oppsite. They will never assimililate, so as a newcomers to the West, let us just deport them .

    Charles wants to be king. He has a history of things he has said praising Islam. Trust the rule, not the exception.

    Aaand once again the gay conservative who mastered Ø and Å with aplomb still acts as though seated before an IBM Selectric.

    CAPITALS are not how we emphasize words in HTML, nor is typing 1. out 2. numbers how we mark up an ordered list.

    Why not just make each country’s name a subheading, as in H2 or H3?

    Too much to learn, Bruce?

    I have direct experience that blind teenagers produce better HTML code quality than you do.

    Let’s hope for more positive moves in Europe.
