Muslims Tell Europe: “One Day All This Will Be Ours”

From the Gatestone Institute:

This week, yet another Islamic terrorist attack targeted the Spanish city of Barcelona. As it was for many years under Muslim rule, it is, therefore, like Israel, land which many Islamists believe they are entitled to repossess.

At the same time, far from Spain, elementary schools have been closing, shuttered by the state after the number of children dropped to less than 10% of the population. The government is converting these structures into hospices, providing care for the elderly in a country where 40% of the people are 65 or older. That is not a science-fiction novel. That is Japan, the world’s oldest and most sterile nation, where there is a popular expression: “ghost civilization“.

According to Japan’s National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, by 2040 most of the country’s smaller cities will see a dramatic drop of one-third to one-half of their population. Due to a dramatic demographic decrease, many Japanese councils can no longer operate and have been closed. Restaurants have decreased from 850,000 in 1990 to 350,000 today, pointing to a “drying up of vitality”. Predictions also suggest that in 15 years, Japan will have 20 million empty houses. Is that also the future of Europe?

Among the experts in demography, there is a tendency to call Europe “the new Japan“. Japan, however, is dealing with this demographic catastrophe with its own resources, and banning Muslim immigration to the country.

“Europe is committing demographic suicide, systematically depopulating itself in what British historian Niall Ferguson has called “the greatest sustained reduction in European population since the Black Death in the fourteenth century'”, as George Weigel recently noted.

Europe’s Muslims appear to be dreaming of filling this vacuum. The Archbishop of Strasbourg, Luc Ravel, nominated by Pope Francis in February, recently declared that “Muslim believers know very well that their fertility is such today, that they call it … the Great Replacement. They tell you in a very calm, very positive way: ‘One day all this, all this will be ours’ …”.

A new report by the Italian think tank Centro Machiavelli just revealed that if current trends continue, by 2065 first- and second-generation immigrants will exceed 22 million persons or more than 40% of Italy’s total population. In Germany, as well, 36% of children under the age of five are being born to immigrant parents. In 13 of the 28 EU member countries, more people died than were born last year; without migration, the populations of Germany and Italy are expected to decline by 18% and 16%, respectively.

The impact of demographic free-fall is most visible in what was once called the “new Europe”, the countries of the former Soviet bloc such as Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia, to distinguish these from the so called “old Europe”, France and Germany. Those Eastern countries are now the ones most exposed to the “depopulation bomb”, the devastating collapse in birth rate that the current-events analyst and author Mark Steyn has called “the biggest issue of our time“.

The New York Times asked why, “despite shrinking population, Eastern Europe resists accepting migrants”. The shrinking demography is precisely the reason they fear being replaced by migrants. In addition, much of Eastern Europe has already experienced being occupied by Muslims for hundreds of years under the Ottoman Empire, and are all too well aware what would be in store for them were they to come there again. Aging countries fear the antipathetic values sure to appear if there were a replacement by the current young foreign population.

“There are two distinct views in Europe today to consider [regarding the decline and aging of the population]”, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán recently said. “One of these is held by those who want to address Europe’s demographic problems through immigration. And there is another view, held by Central Europe – and, within it, Hungary. Our view is that we must solve our demographic problems by relying on our own resources and mobilizing our own reserves, and – let us acknowledge it – by renewing ourselves spiritually”. Orbán just warned against a “Muslimized Europe”. According to him, “the question of the upcoming decades is whether Europe will continue to belong to Europeans”.

Africa is also pressing Europe with a demographic time bomb. According to Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders:

“In the coming 30 years, the number of Africans will grow by more than one billion people. That is twice the population of the entire European Union… The demographic pressure will be enormous. One-third of the Africans want to move abroad, and many want to come to Europe. Last year, over 180,000 people crossed in shabby boats from Libya. And this is just the beginning. According to EU Commissioner Avramopoulos, at his very moment, 3 million migrants are waiting to enter Europe”.

Eastern Europe is thinning out. Demography has even become a problem for Europe’s security. There are fewer people to serve in Europe’s military and social welfare posts. The President of Bulgaria, Georgi Parvanov, has, in fact, called on the country’s leaders to attend a meeting of the national Consultative Committee entirely devoted to the problem of national security. Once Eastern European countries feared Soviet tanks; now, they fear empty cradles.

The United Nations estimated that there were about 292 million people in Eastern Europe last year, 18 million fewer than in the early 1990s. The number is equivalent to the disappearance of the entire population of the Netherlands.

The Financial Times had called this situation in Eastern Europe “the largest loss of population in modern history”. Its population is shrinking as has no other before. Not even the Second World War, with its massacres, deportations and population movements, had come to that abyss.

Orbán’s way — dealing with a demographic decline using the country’s own resources — is the only way for Europe to avoid Archbishop’s Ravel’s prediction of a “great replacement”. Mass immigration will most likely fill those empty cradles — but Europe will then become also just a becomes a “ghost civilization”; it is just a different kind of suicide.

APPENDIX

Romania will lose 22% of its population by 2050, followed by Moldova (20%), Latvia (19%), Lithuania (17%), Croatia (16%) and Hungary (16%). Romania, Bulgaria, and Ukraine are the countries where the population decline will be most severe. Poland‘s population is estimated to decrease by 2050 to 32 million from the current 38 million. Nearly 200 schools have closed, but there are enough children to fill the remaining ones.

In Central Europe, the proportion of “over 65s” increased by more than one-third between 1990 and 2010. The Hungarian population is at its lowest point in half a century. The number of people fell from 10,709,000 in 1980 to the current 9,986,000 million. In 2050, there will be fewer than 8 million people in Hungary; and one in three will be over the age of 65. Hungary today has a fertility rate of 1.5 children per woman. If you exclude the Roma population, this figure drops to 0.8, the lowest in the world — the reason Prime Minister Orbán announced new measures to solve the demographic crisis.

Bulgaria will have the fastest population decline in the world between 2015 and 2050. Bulgaria is part of a group that is expected to decrease by more than 15% between 2015 to 2050, along with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, and Ukraine. Bulgaria’s population of about 7.15 million people is estimated to fall to 5.15 million in 30 years — a decline of 27.9%.

Official figures show that 178,000 babies were born in Romania. By comparison, in 1990, the first post-Communist year, there were 315,000 births. Croatia last year had 32,000 births, a decline of 20% from 2015. The depopulation of Croatia could come to more than 50,000 people each year.

When the Czech Republic was part of the Communist bloc (as part of Czechoslovakia), its total fertility rate was conveniently close to the replacement rate (2.1). Today it is the fifth most barren country in the world. Slovenia has the highest GDP per capita in Eastern Europe, but an extremely low fertility rate.

2050, Game Over….

European people might consider reproducing if their leaders stopped taxing them to death which funds the open embrace of invaders.

Russia has also had a net population decline of 600,000 in the last ten years, and the trend is continuing.

    Bloody hell. That’s scary and sobering. We need to up our navy game plan. Ya know, being an island and all….

  2. Uriel says:

    Yet the UN and most globalists are determined that all human existence (except their elite few) cease to exist? Scary figures there Hardnox. Natural and manmade genocide actions have been at work again I see. Nature itself has its own way of dealing with population issues (assuming buttinski humans don’t interfere) change is a natural occurance and every population of living species has its own “hold” button keyed by conditions and availability of food.

    • Uriel says:

      Humans however are another thing entirely….their use of chemicals and unnatural additives have been constantly interfering and changing life needs and habits as well as population growth for a very long time. The very first time a human built a dam or trenched a water source or plowed a field, domesticated animals, and cultivated crops, they altered the natural world. Today, some so-called intelligent idiot finds ways to alter air, water, ground, and food while calling it “progress or protection for mankind” blah blah blah. They take an unnatural element like aluminium and spray it in the sky calling it “weather manipulation”, the cycle for that is staggering as it effects all life on earth for centuries. They pour man-made chemicals into human bodies and call it “medical progress” and our bodies react either throwing them off for others consume or the bodies break down in response.

  3. Uriel says:

    God in His infinite wisdom knows that we have a “timebomb” in our DNA for just such stupidity and if it mallfunctions there are always natural disasters and diseases.

    But of course man in his own “infinite childishness” knows better predicting, prognosticating, manipulating, censoring, taking his tiny “god like” steps in a vast world where tomorrow is today and we never understand where all the ripples of actions fall. Yet man as a whole is always finding ways to enrich his pockets in the name of his “mammon”……..

  4. SafeSpace says:

    Only problem with Muhammad’s thinking is that when the EU nations become “all theirs”, they won’t be worth occupying. Just picture Somalia with snowstorms …. No work ethic, punk dick theocrat dictators running the show, no proper education … Sure am glad I am old.

    • Hardnox says:

      Excellent points. Europe will be another third-world shithole just like the ones they left behind. Of course, they will also destroy all libraries and centers of education in the process. Meanwhile, they will continue killing each other as they have for the last 1400+ years.

  5. SafeSpace says:

    Gaddafi predicted this precise turn of events. We must thank Hillary Clinton and her globalist allies for taking Gaddafi out, as he served as an effective (albeit temporary) roadblock for emigrating north Africans):

  6. SafeSpace says:

    Common sense and a bit of time with a calculator has told me for several years that regardless of who wins the individual cultural skirmishes, the war is lost.

    Mollycoddled wealthy peoples in the EU and north America have no interest in breeding (children are an inconvenience and a punishment); minimal interest in family life (it interferes with recreational heterosexual sex and is foreign to fags); are more interested in present-day creature comforts than in laying in for the future; and cannot be torn away from their electronic mirrors of Fakebook and Twatter, where they preen and brag their way through their lives of ease.

    Meanwhile non-whites in the western hemisphere, Hindus, and Muslims share a long-term goal of procreation; the Muslims add a drive for world domination. Western whites probably could not hold off the hordes without resorting to the tactics of a Hitler or a Margaret Sanger. And even the few who might be able to self-justify that will not do it, as they are vastly outnumbered by Justin Trudeau pajama-boy types, who are so busy virtue-signalling that they cannot even defend a parking space, let alone a culture and a way of life.

    • Hardnox says:

      The handwriting is on the wall. Has been for a while. It’s simple math. The only question that remains is how long does the USA last? I envision a white-flight from Europe to the USA.

  7. I.R. Wayright says:

    Simple problem to fix. Stop taxing people to death and MAYBE they’ll have more of an urge to procreate. I grew up in he 1950 and 1960s. The population was half what it is today, and the country seemed to function just fine. The highways were a lot less crowded and we had as much or more quality of life due to less quantity of mouths to feed. One income ($80 to $100 a week) was sufficient to have a roof over your head, a car in the garage plus a one or two week vacation every year. What the hell happened to that life?
    Why, school taxes alone are enough to make you celibate.

    • Hardnox says:

      After a bit of reflection on the “turn the other cheek thing” and a bit of guilt from this Norse Viking Barbarian, I mentioned to a friend that I would give no quarter to anyone who would do the USA harm. Mind you, I’m not a scripture kinda guy but one of my bible thumper friends told me “Jesus said, sell your robe and buy a sword”.

      Got it!
