Muslim anti-Semitism and failure to integrate in Europe rooted in Islam, Re: The New Scapegoats of Europe, International Herald Tribune/New York Times, January 9, 2012

Muslim violence against Jews is increasing rapidly in countries all over Europe…not only are acts of physical violence increasing but so are threats and intimidation and acts of desecration such as defacing synagogues and cemeteries. Trying to cope with virulent Muslim anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic acts is a part of daily life for Jews wherever they live in Europe and Jews throughout the continent are being harassed, threatened and attacked by Muslims in the name of Islam regularly and frequently.

The New York Times would have us believe that the root cause of this barbaric, abominable behaviour is the failure of European countries to successfully integrate Muslim immigrants into their societies, to define them as British or French or German instead of immigrants from wherever they came from. The Times is of the opinion that Muslim violence against Jews would decrease if Muslims were less marginalized and had more economic opportunities. The Times also believes that Muslims are scapegoats, although it doesn’t say for what.

These positions are dead wrong and simply serve to point out how ignorant about Islam their proponents really are.

The reason why anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic acts are commonplace all over Europe and becoming more and more commonplace every day is because the number and percentage of Muslims living there is high and increasing and Islamization has taken hold and become a serious problem in every European country. Vilification, hatred and disgust for Jews has been an integral part of Islam since its very beginning 1,400 years ago and so have Islamic religious imperatives against them. Muslim immigrants have brought this ancient poison and Jew hatred with them from their home countries and are acting on it as Islam compels them to do, as they did in those home countries. More Muslims means more anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic acts, plain and simple.

The Times also doesn’t recognize and understand that as a rule Muslim immigrants to Europe don’t want to integrate into their new countries and become British or French or German or whatever. What they want to do is live according to Islam’s dictates and Islamic law and make Islam supreme in their new countries, both of which Islam requires them to do, both of which are religious imperatives. They don’t want to become British or French or German or whatever. They want the British, the French, the Germans and everyone else to become Islamic and live under Islam

Islam demands nothing less.

Muslims in Europe who are marginalized and don’t have as many economic opportunities as they otherwise might have have no one to blame but themselves. One cannot practice Islam as it is meant to be practised and become a full-fledged functioning member of a Western society. In the end those who practice Islam make a choice and choose to isolate themselves and reject their host countries way of life. They will say they have no choice because Islam doesn’t give them any, but freedom of choice is one of the things that living in the West is all about and it is up to them if they want to take advantage of it and reap the benefits or remain imprisoned by an outdated, barbaric seventh century creed which has no place in the modern, civilized world.

According to the Times “there is no broad and systematic anti-Jewish sentiment in Europe”. There most certainly is. It is inherent in Islam and flourishes wherever there are Islamic communities. Muslims and Islam are also not being scapegoated. The Muslim/Islamic presence has brought a wide range of serious social and economic problems with it wherever it exists, not only against Jews but against other Europeans and non-Islamists too, indeed against Western civilization itself and the principles and institutions it is based on as well…the examples are many and varied and very real. That’s not scapegoating anybody or anything.

Its just telling the truth.
