While (Western) Europe Slept, Part 2

Peter Baggins, Ph.D.


Part 1.

These same fears were clearly articulated over a decade ago by Bruce Bawer in his prescient book
. Bawer argued then that Europe’s democratic traditions and open society face a growing demographic and cultural threat from Europe’s Muslim immigrant communities who reject Enlightenment values and resist integration.

He blamed this trend primarily on the “self-destructive passivity” among Europeans, whom he regards as “appeasing” essentially incompatible philosophies like radical Islam in the name of religious tolerance.  Unlike the former American ideal of “melting pot” integration of immigrants within the wider society, Europe generally fails to integrate Muslim immigrants and instead tends to marginalize and isolate immigrant communities in the name of multiculturalism.

According to Bawer, Western European governments subscribe to the worst kind of political correctness. From Sweden to France, governments shower immigrants with benefits, install them in ghettos, while turning a blind eye to Muslim attacks on women, Jews and gays.

Writing in 2006, Bawer hinted at a coming cataclysm. “Immigrants to Europe bring with them many tribal customs that are flagrantly inconsistent with a Western understanding of human rights,” he writes. “These customs represent flashpoints of latent or potential conflict between the Muslim immigrant communities and their host societies.” And in a multicultural society, we are expected to simply tolerate them even though they conflict with the most basic values of historical Western societies.

Response to the book was predictably ideological. Bawer characterized the leftwing criticism as symptomatic of one of the very problems he had sought to address in the book:

One of the most disgraceful developments of our time is that many Western authors and intellectuals who pride themselves on being liberals have effectively aligned themselves with an outrageously illiberal movement that rejects equal rights for women, that believes gays and Jews should be executed, that supports the coldblooded murder of one’s own children in the name of honor, etc., etc.

Unintegrated Muslim Communities: The Case of Sweden

Remember all of the recent furor and Swedish denials caused by Trump’s listing of Sweden as one the Europe’s countries negatively impacted by the influx of refugees? It seems that almost daily since then there are reports of riots and conflict in most of the urban areas where refugees have been settled.

The danger is so great to police in the notorious Swedish No-Go Zone of Rinkeby that they will not be allowed to use public transportation to get to work and may have to be driven to the station daily for their personal safety. Rinkeby was the site of a riot which saw looting and car burnings less than 48 hours after Trump mentioned the impact of mass migration on Sweden.

The heavily migrant-populated Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby is just what Bawer predicted 10 years ago. It is a textbook example of a No-Go Zone where police and even the liberal media are constantly under threat of attack from residents. To deal with the danger, the police have planned a new fortified police station, at the cost of 380 million Swedish Krona (£35 million). It will look like and be designed as a fortress with bullet proof windows, steel reinforced walls, and surrounded by security fence. Security is the police’s main concern in the area following attacks against them by residents while out on patrol. Police in Rinkeby now rarely venture on foot into the area without backup.

Christoffer Ersenius, local union president of the police district of Rinkeby, said many officers who police the area are still afraid for their safety.  There are also safety concerns for those contracted to build the new police station.  Earlier this month, it was revealed that the police had put the project on hold as contractors were reluctant to take on the work for fear of their workers’ safety.

But remember, despite all this, diversity is our greatest strength.

The General Pattern

It is not possible in such a brief essay to describe the deplorable conditions in all the European cities where similar problems are evident, but what I will do is provide an overview of the extent of the problem in more general terms.

In recent decades, the Muslim share of the population throughout Europe grew about 1 percentage point a decade, from 4% in 1990 to 6% in 2010.

This pattern is now accelerating because of the refugee crisis and many millions more have entered Europe since the Pew Forum documented the following statistics: the total number of Muslims in Europe in 2010 was about 44 million (6%), excluding Turkey. The total number of Muslims in the European Union in 2010 was about 19 million (3.8%).

Using the 2010 map we can see a stark divide between Western and Eastern Europe. Western European members like the UK, France, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Sweden all now have very significant Muslim populations ranging from 4–8% of the total population. In Southern Europe the percentages can be even higher in Bulgaria (13.7%) and Greece (5.3%). However, in the Eastern EU countries, the percentages are negligible, far less than 1% in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. This is why the EU, dominated by Western Europe, wants to impose quotas on the Eastern EU countries.

The map however does not begin to tell the whole story.

This is because Muslims concentrate within major cities. Many EU cities including Amsterdam, Brussels, Birmingham, Manchester, Cologne, Marseille, Stockholm, etc. have swelled to a 15–20% Muslim population (again 2010 figures).   However many areas within a city are majority to nearly all Muslim. (Similarly, In the US the NYTimes estimates the Muslim population in New York City from 600,000 to one million). So we go from 4–8% in the nation, to 15–20% in the city, to 50–100% in a given neighborhood. This is why police need military strongholds from which to conduct sorties in the no-go-zones that are proliferating throughout Western Europe. Because of the concentration of its population in cities, Muslims can now elect one of their own as mayor of London, and other European cities.

But will Western Europe ever awaken from its comfortable dream state of denial? The next evidence, for or against, will come from France, which has one of Europe’s largest Muslim populations.

Marine Le Pen, the presidential candidate for France’s populist National Front (FN), is now leading the fight. She is calling for the German-dominated euro to be scrapped and France’s membership of the EU to be put to a referendum unless the open-borders Schengen Agreement is abandoned and the EU reconfigured as a much looser association of sovereign nation-states.

“People are waking up,” confirmed FN deputy leader Florian Philippot immediately before one Le Pen’s recent speeches. “They see Brexit, they see Trump and they’re saying to themselves: ‘It’s worth going to vote.’”

This idea of an impending sea-change in world politics is one of Le Pen’s key talking points:

The people are waking — the tide of history has turned. What is at stake in this election is the continuity of France as a free nation, our existence as a people. … The French have been dispossessed of their patriotism. They are suffering in silence from not being allowed to love their country. … The divide is no longer between the Left and the Right, but between the patriots and the globalists.

          Talmudic “enrichment” of the Catholic church advances unnoticed by churchgoers and ignored by the (lower) clergy. As most of the clerics on the top are inspired by Zionism, there is no hope for Christianity.

          It is likely that the pessimistic views expressed prophetically by Ratzinger in 1969 will be fully realized. That gives hope for a re-birth, albeit from much lower levels. Already churches are being destroyed whilst others are empty for lack of clergy and faithful.

      This panel of a mural depicting the siege of Majorca in 1229 by Christian forces under King James I of Aragon clearly shows a Star of David flying over the ochre tower. We can presume that the white alongside the Moor in said tower, as well as the other whites in the depiction, are Jews. The Christians are helmeted. This goes unmentioned in the painting’s notes or description. (Part of the Star of David is blotched; use the magnifier function).

    Notice Jews as the victims, but he says nothing about them as the Perpetrators of the historically failed concept of multiculturalism.

      There are ever-more Youtube sites with this theme; I think there’s funding for them, and standard scripts and phrases, in the typical Jewish parasitic manner. Lots of synthetic outrage against Muslims; lots of incidents, some of them false flags; nothing on the money Jews get from Muslims in rent added to public debt, nothing on bombs. Nothing on the ‘Welcome the stranger’ Jew garbage. And high numbers of clicks–probably they’re instructed to view, or at least click on, each other’s videos.

    I just pressure-washed my crystal ball to better see whether it also portends a ” sea-change in world politics “. It does, but not the one hoped for by le Pen.

    Instead, it imparted to me a huge sea-change in America. Pressed for detail, it stated the following: appreciative of its previous bath. Trump cannot simply say I wash my hands of the failed Health Bill, caucuses aside; Schumer and Pelosi own it ! His base will be disappointed, not alone by this non-performance, and dwindle: to the joy of the Democratic base and particularly to its top-heavy superstructure; feeling reinforced and vindicated in their predictions and tiresome re-litigation of the election.

    He will certainly lose many of his seats in Congress, taken from the Democrats, as he will in governorships, similarly gained — in the 2018 elections.

    If he fails to recuperate through a miracle, or preferably several, said the crystal ball, he would consequently and irretrievably lose his 2020 vision altogether.

    The combined formal opposition of Democrats and Media would take control for the following eight years, after which the demographic clock would gain the upper hand, essentially turning the US into a single Party government, or a dictatorship, as we usually describe such arrangements elsewhere. The Constitution would die through gang rapes.

    Solicited for its opinion about Europe’s future, it admonished me to google the ” European Jewish Parliament “, its entirely EU – copied structure and activities, ready for the day of bait and switch, in the manner of the preparatory NGOs of the Bolsheviks; though not called that a hundred years ago. It drew my particular attention to the EU star at the 2 o’clock position, already replaced by a star of David on its logo; a mere eleven to go – assiduously worked towards.

    Asked of the enormous percentage of Muslims in Europe, it scoffed at me, citing the force majeure of the smaller number of Jews, and again admonished me to read the excellent comments here, with particular attention to the population map cited and the far more important one linked by Nice Guy Eddie.

    I showed it the front page and title of the book by Bower and it asked whether that is not spelled Bauer, as in Amshel, later Rothschild. When it came across the main title WHILE EUROPE SLEPT, it responded without having been consulted, whether I too wouldn’t fall asleep after being forcefully overdosed with sleeping pills of Israeli manufacture, legally dispensed through their media apothecaries.

    With regard to the subtitle, it remarked ” shouldn’t that be
    how Zionism is destroying the West from within “.

    Yeah, I said; good misdirection !

      “…The combined formal opposition of Democrats and Media would take control for the following eight years, after which the demographic clock would gain the upper hand…”

      I find this very disheartening. I think it likely that if the Democrats get a 8 or 12 year continuous stretch of power that Whites will start to be extremely oppressed and possibly we may even go through a period exactly like the Russians when the Jews took over Russia. South Africa will be your future. It’s imperative that Trump destroy the CIA, the NSA , get us out of the global wars and close all the overseas military bases if it looks like this will happen. Better them than us.

    Close but…”…The divide is no longer between the Left and the Right, but between the patriots and the (((globalists))).

    I don’t believe these Jewish population figures. I know from just common sense that there’s lots more, millions more in the US. I also find it hard to believe, no matter how efficient the Jews, are they could be doing all this with the small numbers they say they have.

    I know people link a lot of stuff and it’s hard to read it all but I implore you fellows to read this short blog post by Giovanni Dannato . It’s tremendously good and explains a lot of the reasons the Jews have so much power. I recommend all of his writing. He’s incredibly good at taking complicated subjects and distilling them down to their essence. He has a wealth of post going back years that is of great value. If you haven’t read his blog I believe you’re really missing out on some profound wisdom. Unfortunately he isn’t anti-Jew like me but maybe he’ll learn in time.

      Sam, paragraph 2, sentences one and two. There are undoubtedly far more Jews in the west in general than statistically captured. The staff at Ellis Island, unable to even pronounce some of the names from Eastern Europe, gave up transliterating them and simply entered Anglicized names. The same goes for Prussia’s and the Habsburg’s frontiers.
      Some with a macabre sense of ‘ humor ‘ substituted with names like Geschwuer [ festering boil ] or Tischbein [ table leg ], etc., etc.

      Many, who were exceptionally registered by staff of their own nationality, opted to Anglicize their names later, to at least try to assimilate or gain perceived advantages.

      Why do you express doubt that ” they could be doing all this “, when your recommended Dannato link explains, with approbation and admiration all their scintillating attributes to achieve predominance; criticized by non-networking, envious, individualistic non achievers like us.

      Dannato idolizes Alexander Hamilton, promoted as a child presumably by Jewish business interests. If memory serves, Hamilton, unable to repay all government debt for the Revolution, OPTED to leave a great number of creditors high and dry and paid only some selected creditors, for the purpose of creating larger capital concentrations TO BENEFIT ALL OF THE NEW NATION, in need of large-scale investment. Not for a moment do I suggest that he did so in order to get on to the Broadway stage: I have yet to listen to the lyrics of the musical which may not disappoint, since, as Dannato writes: ” Meanwhile, the Jews see someone like Hamilton in their community and give him a chance “.

      Witness this sentence of ” wisdom ” in which this Opera Buffo clown cudgels logic to death, idiotically disclosing the real attributes required for Jewish pre-eminence:

      ” They can blame the Jews and pogrom them all tomorrow but the next day, someone else comes along to fill the vacuum and dominates them, again beating them bloody with a riding crop as they squeal with impotent rage through a ball gag. And there they stay trapped in humiliating servitude to more cohesive tribes until they change themselves “.

      A Talmudic wet dream written by a mediocre student at Hasbara Central School: best deduced by my personal dictum : Disregard labels – analyze function !

        Amen, Charles.

        Had the linked column been written, for example, by Pope Francis, Charles Murray, or some half-black, half-Albanian New York Times op-ed moron with delusions of celebrity status to come, it and its author would have been laughed to scorn. But evidently, when written by some blogger calling himself John the Damned, it acquires prophetic status.

        Was this a case of a man leaving his critical faculties in his other suit, or was it just a two-days-early April Fool’s gag?

    A cordial and grateful tip of the hat to Dale Gribble and Charles Frey anent Bruce Bawer. I first learned of Bawer in the mid-eighties from some very self-important (((neocons))) and the similarly accoutred fellow-traveling goyische husband of one of them, with all of whom I worked back then. They were all big promoters of the New Criterion, a neocon magazine whose founders, the art critic (((Hilton Kramer))) and the smart but unsuccessful pianist Samuel Lipman (no triple parens needed here surely!), had started the rag to advance a Judaized bastardization of a principled defense of traditionalism and critique of modernism.* I also learned later that the Jewish wife of the shegetz had close family and personal ties with some of the big machers at Insight magazine.

    To the people I mention above, Bawer was rather a big deal, and he was promoted as such. They plainly spoke and thought of him as Jewish, and whether he is or not, so I came to think of him. (On this score, I’d sooner trust them than Wikipedia, which goes quite coy in discussing Bawer’s antecedents, to shoot straight on this matter.) It was another half-dozen years before I learned of Bawer’s homosexuality and his active desire to see deviance normed by Western society. So much for the high principle and culture of the Christian West.

    The primary effect on me of the Bawer-filled opening of the present article was to maximally decrease my trust in the bona fides of Peter Baggins, even should it turn out that he has been guilty only of seriously culpable naiveté. Put relatively, for a frank and companionable chat, I’d prefer Marcus Alethia’s company any day.
