The continent of Europe hasn’t learned a whole lot since the Nazi occupation in the 1940’s. It appears that many of its people are oblivious to their own vulnerability and a repeat of history.
The threat of unrestricted migration does not send out warning signals to many of the countries in the region. Hundreds of thousands of North Africans and Middle East peoples trek to Europe almost unheeded. Some of the nations on the receiving end have begun to awaken to the fallacies of such immigration policies, but is it too late to save their ancient cultures?
For example, Austria has accused the Turks of being behind seven mosques being subsidized by their government. Austria’s conservative Chancellor Sebastian Kurz plans to expel up to 60 Turkish-funded imams and their families. His main complaint is the occupants have become radicalized and are a threat to the Austrian people.
This may only be the beginning. The Muslim religion is being abused by a minority of its so-called members who have caused violence and terror among the Europeans who welcomed them with open arms. It has created an environment of protectionism in various countries and the movement against their presence is becoming more popular by the day.
Turkish President Erdogan has lashed out at this movement and considers it a “war between the cross and the crescent.” His accusations are falling on more and more deaf ears as nationalism takes hold amongst European nations.
Many argue it is impossible for such a alien culture to integrate. The once open-door policies are under attack and liberal politicians have begun to change their welcoming policies. One of their biggest supporters is American President Donald Trump who urges Europeans to make their countries the priority. Much like he advocates “America first,” he tells the individual countries to enforce their own independence from foreign influence.
The social programs for Syrian refugees alone are breaking the budgets of several countries. Germany leads the list and its Chancellor Angela Merkel is feeling the political heat. The burden of these new arrivals is in direct proportion to most immigrants being unable to find jobs.
Hungary is the exception and Europe is beginning to come around to their policies. Hungary has no problems with immigrants because there are no welfare programs for new arrivals. The word has spread to the Muslim world and Hungary is suddenly not a destination.
Meanwhile, Canada and the U.S. have not reacted to the plight of their European allies. It is true that President Trump considers the Muslim migration to be an invasion of sorts, but his neighbor to the north does not. It doesn’t help that the far left considers the new arrivals as part of their new base of potential voters.
Islamic schools teach a far different curriculum to that of the West. Their view of democracy is one of hatred. It has brought a slow awakening to those who value freedom of speech and religion. The Europeans have mostly seen enough of their compassionate policies and the current immigration laws are being adapted rapidly.
Uncontrolled Muslim migration is a direct threat to western civilization as we know it. The U.S. and Canada must heed the warnings from the other side of the Atlantic before it is too late.
