The horrifying events of rape and mass sexual assaults on over two hundred women at Cologne, Germany during the celebration of New Years Eve, has left Germany and the rest of Europe Frightened and staggered. German Chancellor Angele Merkels decision to open the gates for over 1.5 million refugees from Syria, Iraq and North Africa has turned to be perhaps a historic blunder, which may have terrible consequences in years to come. The most disturbing part of this troubling episode was that as a precaution to avoid Right Wing backlash, the German mainstream media and the law enforcement agencies decided to keep this a secret and did not report this incident to the public. But, the beans were spelt and the news was out like a firestorm on the social media. Thousands of Germans from all age groups barged into the streets for an all out demonstration against Angela Merkel and the media, which had repeatedly been lying to them on several boiling issues. Through the social media footages, it was learnt that most of the immigrants were from Sub-Saharan and North African backgrounds and not from the regions, what mainstream European media and the politicians propagated it to be.
Europe is dying a slow death. For the past thirty years or so, its population has been steadily shrinking. Moreover, large scale immigration from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Balkans and the subcontinent has fragmented European ethos, threatened European thought and has raised serious doubts over its future. The Jews, who had sought refuge in tolerant Western European democracies after the Nazi holocaust, have fled in heavy numbers to Israel. It is estimated, that about Fifty thousand Jews have left France ever since the January 2015 attack on the Kosher market. The large chunk of indigenous white population is well over the middle age and most statistics indicate that the white population would be outnumbered by 2030. In Brussels, the immigrant Muslim population makes 25%, in Antwerp 50% of the school children are of Muslim background and in London the white British population is now a minority roughly estimating to 37% of the population. In Sweden things are looking gloomy, the huge refugee population from war affected Iraq and the Balkans, has culminated in producing gang wars among themselves, creating no go zones in some areas.
Many Experts believe that Europe has failed in its policy of multiculturalism and pluralism. Over the last twenty years, uncontrolled and mass migration from North Africa and the war torn Middle East has resulted parallel societies within Europe and has permanently fractured any scope for cultural and social integration. Saudi Arabia and other oil rich monarchies have pumped in millions to spread and propagate their regressive and puritanical brand of Islam known as the Wahabi or the Salafi school of thought. The Gulf Monarchs had also created Taliban in the late seventies to overthrow the atheistic Soviets and in the recent times created, structured, trained and financed the world’s most wanted militant Islamic outfit, the ISIS. There are caliphate clubs openly fuming hate against the Jews, homosexuals and the society at large.
Saudi Arabia and other gulf countries refused to intake a single refugee or an asylum seeker from these decimated areas, but promised European Union, that they would sponsor thousands of mosques inside Europe. Almost every European country has an average Muslim population of 8% to 10%. And the population has been the fastest growing in number in comparison to every other population in Europe. Despite, handful of incidents of racists and prejudices, Muslims enjoy relatively high rate of religious freedom and security in Europe than the countries they immigrated from. Yet, most of the population has been proselytized by the Saudi Salafi style of Islam and thus the community has been practicing one of the most orthodox and backward practises of the faith.
The lies and the half truths sold by politically correct politicians have now backfired. The vacuum is now filled by the far right political parties and white supremacist wings, who have been waiting in hidden bushes for years. Who would have thought a few years ago, those far right parties would be leading in polls in open societies like Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Denmark or Belgium. The situation is intensifying day after day and it is going bad to worse. Europe needs a miracle, if it has to get out of this battle without war and bloodbath.
