Today UPS delivered my copy of Fjordman's book "Defeating Eurabia" (BJ Books, via www.lulu.com), which I ordered online barely one week ago. What can I say? It blows you away. Unfortunately, due to a hectic work schedule, this evening I was only able to quickly glance in it, but a look at the Table of Contents to get a grasp of how it's structured, plus some random snippets I picked up here and there throughout its 328 pages, convinced me I had to let our readers know of the birth of a Magnum Opus. Although I am pretty sure Fjordman himself, modest as he is, wouldn't call it like that.
I would wager it was about time Fjordman's numerous essays, written in meticulous English and bursting at the seams with details, were bundled together in a comprehensive volume in print, so that they can be consulted even when you don't have an internet connection or else when there's a power cut. In years to come, this work may increasingly be referred if not as a turning point, then by any means as a marker, a signal that in the years when a turnaround was still possible, not all of Europe was swallowing the mindless nonsense of the multicultural dogmas and offering no resistance either to the cancer of encroaching islam or the betrayal of Europes self-proclaimed elites. Fjordman Rocks, and in a grandiose way. A short post like this one is wholly inadeaquate to bestow "Defeating Eurabia" with the praise it deserves, which, btw, Fjordman does not seek. He looks neither for glory nor for the spotlights. He "just" wishes we become aware of the mortal peril in which Europe currently finds itself - a peril brought about greatly by its own. Here are just a few of a myriad of key quotes:
a.) The Beginning (Chapter "The Eurabia Code", page 9).
"During a November 27, 1967 press conference, Charles de Gaulle stated openly that French cooperation with the Arab world had become "the fundamental basis of our foreign policy." By January 1969, the Second International Conference in support of the Arab Peoples, held in Cairo, in its resolution 15, decided "... to form special parliamentary groups, where they did not exist, and to use the parliamentary platform support of the Arab people and the Palestinian resistance." Five years later in Paris, July 1974, the Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation was created, under the Euro-Arab Dialogue rubric."
b.) Enemy inside the gates (Chapter "The Muslim Brotherhood's Infiltration of the West", page 57).
"Danish theologian Kirsten Sarauw writes in her article A Declaration of War Against the People of Europe that in 2007 in Vienna, Austria, a conference was held about so-called Euro-Islam. Prominent muslim delegates formulated a strategic vision of a Europe dominated by Islam. Mustafa Ceric, Grand Mufti of Bosnia, envisioned an "upcoming Islamic era." The conference was in agreement about the first and foremost goal, namely the introduction of religious Islamic jurisprudence (sharia) in Europe, "in the beginning at least as a parallel system alongside national laws in European states." As to the real meaning of sharia, they all agreed to avoid publicity as far as possible. According to Sarauw, Tariq Ramadan proclaimed that the real intentions of this work must be concealed from the general public."
c.) How far the islamic cancer has spread (Chapter "France: can a wounded nation heal itself", page 201).
"In France, muslims already have many smaller states within the state. Criminologist Lucienne Bui Trong wrote that: "From 106 hot points in 1991, we went to 818 sensitive areas in 1999." The term she used, "sensitive areas", was used to describe muslim no-go zones where anything representing a Western institution (post office truck, firemen, even mail order delivery firms) was routinely ambushed with Molotov cocktails. The number was 818 in 2002, when the French government deided to stop collecting the statistics."
d.) How to defeat islam (Chapter "Suggestions for the Future", pages 320 and 322).
"Right now, muslims can enjoy the best of both worlds, and follow primitive religious laws while enjoying the fruits of 21st century civilization. We need to drive home the utter failure of the Islamic model by making sure that muslims should no longer be able to count on permanent Western or infidel aid in their overpopulated, self-primitivized states, whose very unviability they are prevented from recognizing by this constant infusion of aid."
"We should implement a policy of containment of the islamic world, but for this to work we will sometimes have to take military action to crush muslim pretensions to grandeur. The Buddhists of Central Asia undoubtedly held the "moral high ground" in relations to muslims. They are all dead now. At the very least, we must be prepared to back up our ideological defenses with force on certain occasions."
"I'm advocating isolation of the islamic world, not of the West. Even if we cannot allow all non-muslims to freely settle in our lands, this does not mean that they have to be our enemies. Jihad is being waged against the entire non-muslim world, not just the West. We should stop trying to "win the hearts and minds" of muslims instead cooperate with non-muslims. It is important to stress here, however, that this cooperation should be based on mutually shared strategic interests, not on a Western mission to "save the world".
