"A Beacon in the Twilight of Civilization", a Letter from Sweden, Eurabia burns

"A Beacon in the Twilight of Civilization", a Letter from Sweden, Eurabia burns

I am in receipt of an email from a man who fled Sweden. I deleted his last name, everthing else is unedited. Please read it all.

Subject line: A beacon in the twilight of civilization

Where I come from, Sweden, being a Jew is almost like trying to be anything except a muslim in the nexus of islamo-fascism. Jewish students are assaulted on a regular basis in schools, and even Jewish teachers are bullied by students without any reaction from school administrators. Jewish students in public schools use
code words when talking about, e.g., bar mitzvah or going to the synagogue. They try to use Swedish family names instead of their Jewish names, and they certainly try to avoid wearing religious symbols in public.

I came to America three years ago, much because I wanted to give something back to the country that has stood so relentlessly by Europe's side against totalitarianism. Today, many Europeans have turned their back on America, and more do it every day. Some are scared by the onslaught from islamo-fascism, but they still try to find a reason to blame America for it. It is a sad thing to witness, and it infuriates me at the same time because Europe was the cradle of modern, Western civilization. Today, it seems almost as if Europe is going to become the grave of that same civilization.

It was not easy to come here, though. As a conservative college professor I soon realized that I had left the lion's den only be hurled into the snake pit instead. I taught for three years at Skidmore, a small liberal arts college here in upstate NY that does its best to put two meanings into "liberal". It's a long story that I won't bore you with now. Suffice it to say that I soon discovered that the venom that is slowly killing free society in Europe is also being injected into America, little by little, day by day. Postmodern collectivism opens the door for totalitarianism and tyranny. It is the greatest threat to free society. It must be stopped.
