Point of View, with References
This essay was submitted in response to the following e-mail communication from Phil Graf - The editor (firstname.lastname@example.org). Phil is part of a group of Conservative individuals who communicate frequently with the me. You'll have to follow through to the original article to put this into context. My own views are so far from Phil's most of the time, I have a hard time posting them - so if you'd like to be part of his conversation - you may want to e-mail him to get into their network. I'm fascinated with different perspective on reality and the conversations they inspire - so when David sent this to me, I decided to post it. - Vesta
Islam's European Conquest: Is America Next?By John Griffing http://www.americanthinker.com/john_griffing/
“Islamic lands that were occupied by the enemies will once again become Islamic...We proclaim that we will conquer Rome, like Constantinople was conquered once, and as it will be conquered again."- Ali Al-Faqir , the Jordanian Minister for Religious Endowment
It’s difficult to see how one can come to the conclusion that Islam is not a threat to the west.
David Hunt's response:
I can say that as far as the grand chess board, to borrow from Zbig, is concerned, Europe needs to be amalgamated and softened up and we need to be decimated, i.e., economically crushed, starved, killed, diseased, rounded up and re-trained or 1/3 to 1/2 of our population wiped in a war or both. We, culturally, do not work well with NWO credos.
Look at the percentages of populations: Muslim vs. non-religious/other, in the European countries and then look at the US. How do you convince a bunch (millions) of Muslims to move to the US from their parts of the world under current circumstances?
We have guns, most of the Europeans do not. We claim to be Christian and/or believe in a Judeo/Christian God and much of the Europeans are and have been apathetic to religion for a long time. We have a collapsing economy and a population trained to be wary of all things middle-eastern (after all, those rag-heads flew planes into our big buildings in NY) while in Europe it is still fashionable to be politically correct and the governments, EU and all, really try to manage economies for full employment; like China.
The US is transitioning to that, but not very willingly. Too many of us still get sick to our stomachs whenever we are reminded that 52% of the working population works for the government in some fashion. In Europe, they think that is good; to them, it is a sign of security and to us it is a sign of failure.
In order for Islam to do what has been done in Europe here, they would essentially have to be Mexico AND the US would probably need to have a better economy. It ain't there and it ain't gonna happen.
What is happening is that we are being set up to be economically crushed, starved, killed, diseased, rounded up and re-trained or 1/3 to 1/2 of our population wiped in a war or both.
My question is, "Who is doing that?" I know part of the answer and it isn't Islam.
Lastly (doubtful) my theory of why this "Islam is the great threat" is so compelling to those who would or should know otherwise is that it deflects from a very disturbing fact.
That fact is that our very own government and its attendant monetary/banking system is our enemy. It has sworn itself to our destruction and this is hard pill to swallow for many who would call themselves true Americans.
We'd like to think that we still have some vestiges of a system that can work in our favor even though that is probably not true.
I would prefer to be surprised on this, but if the Ron Paul types are successful it will be with a great and organized effort and the blessings and interventions from God. There is nothing else on the horizon that even holds a glimmer of hope.
I would imagine that coming from a military background or in some capacity where one has seen some honor and good purpose within the behemouth GOVERNMENT this fact would be especially hard to take or believe or even consider. Not sure if that accurately describes your situation, but that is one of the first things that come to my mind.
