From Cassandra at The Lighthouse, we have the first of what may become many, if Western Civilization is to be saved, Laurels for Journalist Courage.
It therefore stands out like a honest newspaper in Oceania when a bread-and-butter news site like the Irish Independent is publishing a reality-based report on the encroaching Islamization that is taking the West by stealth. In the article, "Forget lily-livered liberalism, time to take stand and say we don't want Muslim immigrants", the Independent is indeed doing just that - Hat tip Foehammer's Anvil Therefore belatedly (the article is dated 17th July) these pages are awarding the first "Lighthouse Laurels for Journalistic Courage" to the "Independent" of Ireland!Bravo to the Independent and to Kevin Myers. Here is the beginning of his commentary:
LET me ask you something. Is it a rational decision for a secular-Christian society to admit thousands of Muslims into its midst? Comparable movements of Christians into Muslim societies are not permitted, so what essential, non-negotiable, mutually respected right is involved? The question is especially apposite, because we now know the consequences for every single European society which has admitted large numbers of Muslims: social alienation, religious antagonism and outright terrorism. We know this. We all know it. And yet we continue to allow Muslim immigration. Why? What do we gain from it?I am adding the Independent.ie news source to my list. Years back I read a great book, How the Irish Saved Civilization!, full title: How the Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland's Heroic Role from the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe. Maybe they will do it again. Someone has to! Do you of Western Civilization and Culture want to see the star and crescent atop Notre Dame, or Westminster Abbey in shambles? Not on our watch...unless WE let it happen. As the new Pope Benedict asked, where is the reciprocity? Where are the Christian churches being built in Saudi Arabia. As I said in so many words but not as bravely as Kevin Myers, We do not need Muslim immigration into Western nations. We do not need to import terrorism and, while I would not suggest that all Iraqis are "terrorists", they did vote for Sharia Law to be the "Law of the Land" in Iraq. Their choice for Iraq; not my choice for America. I am just as opposed to that as I am to the North American Union and from where I sit, I can't figure out why we are importing "a revolutionary" culture from the South and "Islamic Imperialism" from around the world that has at the very least condoned over 9,000 acts of terrorism world-wide since September 11, 2001. It makes no sense. But then that is the ploy perhaps of the Globalists and the Far-Liberal Left - to throw everything off-balance so that nothing makes sense; the importation of more "diverse" factions; there is no ordered world; all mores are equivalent; and when we scream for common sense, they slap us with more restrictions and turn around and say, "You wanted more security...but we'll take your freedoms for it and we'll saddle you with taxes to enslave you. And we'll increase our dependency-based voter block to ensure our own supremacy." My question is who will be left when the dust settles after the imported "diverse warring factions" have started to claim territory in a serious way right here in the USA? And what will be left of our U.S. Constitution once the "hate-speech" and "hate-crimes" folks finish chipping away at it? I don't see how our "secular laws" can hold us together much longer, frankly - not with the seeming racism of groups such as La Raza on one side and perhaps the litigious CAIR on the other calling itself the Muslim civil-rights group. I just don't know when or what will be the catalyst that will bring this "gathering storm" to the fore. Do you?
