’Europe is pregnant with Islam and will give a birth to an Islamic nation’

In 1908, Saidi Kurdi foretold that Europe would become an Islamic nation. He wrote that his followers should take with pleasure the advantages of Europe - like technology and industry - that would assist them in their progress toward their goal and in the development of their civilization. Muslims in Turkey advocate Turkey’s accession to the European Union more than secular people in Turkey for several reasons. First, Muslims will freely increase their missionary activity in Europe. Secondly, they will not have any pressure from the Turkish military, a long-term check on Islamic activities, because the role of the military will decrease. Thirdly, the unsolved problems, such as wearing the headscarf, will be solved because the EU’s value of freedom of religion will overcome the threat to secularism that the scarves pose today. If we look at the AK Party, Erdogan is following exactly the same line that Fethullah Gulen is using, pressing Turkey to join the European Union. He uses a secular cloak to disguise his fundamental Islamic spirit characterized by his pre-prison poem.

Harold Wilson said, 'A week is a long time in politics'. There is a long way to go before Turkey is allowed into Europe, at the very least 10 years. It is a race. Will Turkey become European or Europe become islamic, that is the question.

I have faith that Europe will not lose this war, despite "Eurabia" forecasts by Bat Ye'or.

So do I. And it is their very own Islamic arrogance, more than our strength, that will bring Islam down in the end. They play our weaknesses. Ok, but we can play that game too, you know.

He believes in the same fallacy that the Soviets did. If you take Europe you get the technology and industry prize. The problem is, once an Islamofascist or Soviet system is in place, the prize will cease to be what it once was and degrade to the level of what the conquerors already have -- crap.

True Don Miguel and in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, where it took two weeks for the trucks and trains to stop running properly. Here is something which may (or may not) explain why so many journalists and bureaucrats are pro-Islam:

When someone is honestly 55% right, that's very good and there's no use wrangling. And if someone is 60% right, it's wonderful, good luck and let him thank God. But what is to be said about 75% right? Wise people say this is suspicious. Well, and what about 100% right? Whoever says he is 100% right is a fanatic, a thug, and the worst kind of rascal.
(An Old Jew of Galacia)

The Captive Mind (Czeslaw Milosz)
'What is Ketman? I found its description in a book by Gobineau entitled Religions and Philosophies of Central Asia...
The people of the Mussulman East believe that “He who is in possession of truth must not expose his person, his relatives or his reputation to the blindness, the folly, the perversity of those whom it has pleased God to place and maintain in error.” One must, therefore, keep silent about one's true convictions if possible.' (p 57)

'Ketman as a social institution is not entirely devoid of advantages. In order to evaluate them, one need only look at life in the West. Westerners, and especially Western intellectuals, suffer from a special variety of taedium vitae; their emotional and intellectual life is too dispersed. Everything they think and feel evaporates like steam in an open expanse. Freedom is a burden to them. (These italics mine). No conclusions they arrive at are binding: it may be so, then again it may not. The result is constant uneasiness.
In short, Ketman means self-realisation against something. He who practises Ketman suffers because of the obstacles he meets; but if these obstacles were suddenly removed, he would find himself in a void which might perhaps prove more painful...For most people the necessity of living in constant tension and watchfulness is a torture, but many intellectuals accept this necessity with masochistic pleasure.' (pp 79,80)

'He who practises Ketman lies. But would he be less dishonest if he could speak the truth?...Ketman brings comfort, fostering dreams of what might be...'

'But suppose one should try to live without Ketman, to challenge fate, to say: “If I lose, I shall not pity myself.” Suppose one can live without outside pressure, suppose one can create one's own inner tension – then it is not true that there is nothing in man. To take this risk would be an act of faith.' (p 81)

An abortion is the way to go here.
