Peters' Prognostications

Ralph Peters at the NY Post has a different angle on the events we are witnessing in Europe. Where most of what I read seems to have Europe on the ropes, Lt.Col. Peters (US Army ret.). a former intelligence officer, sees different.
The notion that continental Europeans, who are world-champion haters, will let the impoverished Muslim immigrants they confine to ghettos take over their societies and extend the caliphate from the Amalfi Coast to Amsterdam has it exactly wrong.
That's what I have thought for some time now. The summer riots in Paris, the killings in the Netherlands, the bombings in England, everything pointed to a demoralized population just waiting for burqas and sharia law.

Don't let Europe's current round of playing pacifist dress-up fool you: This is the continent that perfected genocide and ethnic cleansing, the happy-go-lucky slice of humanity that brought us such recent hits as the Holocaust and Srebrenica.

THE historical patterns are clear: When Europeans feel sufficiently threatened - even when the threat's concocted nonsense - they don't just react, they over-react with stunning ferocity. One of their more-humane (and frequently employed) techniques has been ethnic cleansing.

And it's not just this past century. Misha at AIR was posting along those lines not too long ago. The Danes, as much of Europe, have a brutal history.
The year 1492 wasn't just big for Columbus. It's also when Spain expelled its culturally magnificent Jewish community en masse - to be followed shortly by the Moors, Muslims who had been on the Iberian Peninsula for more than 800 years.
The Moors were invaders. It took the Spaniards a while, but they finally threw the invaders out. Muslims were not driven out of Europe until the Battle of Vienna in 1683 forced the Muslims into a gradual retreat that lasted for 16 years.
And Europe's Muslims don't even have roots, by historical standards. For the Europeans, they're just the detritus of colonial history. When Europeans feel ufficiently provoked and threatened - a few serious terrorist attacks could do it - Europe's Muslims will be lucky just to be deported.
In March, 2004, Islamofascists killed almost 200 and wounded another 1,700 in a horrid Madrid bombing. The result - Spain tucked its tail and ran. The French are too busy kicking the crap out of their own police to notice what else is happening.
But that doesn't dissuade Peters. The EU nations just haven't been shocked enough. And they will be.
WE don't need to gloss over the many Muslim acts of barbarism down the centuries to recognize that the Europeans are just better at the extermination process. From the massacre of all Muslims and Jews (and quite a few Eastern Christians) when the Crusaders reached Jerusalem in 1099 to the massacre of all the Jews in Buda (not yet attached to Pest across the Danube) when the "liberating" Habsburg armies retook the citadel at the end of the 17th century, Europeans have just been better organized for genocide.
The Germans certainly had it down pat, but they were fueled by a madman and centuries of anti-semitism. Can the same ethnic hatred be stoked by a series of obscene acts perpetrated by terrorists?
Far from enjoying the prospect of taking over Europe by having babies, Europe's Muslims are living on borrowed time. When a third of French voters have demonstrated their willingness to vote for Jean-Marie Le Pen's National Front - a party that makes the Ku Klux Klan seem like Human Rights Watch - all predictions of Europe going gently into that good night are surreal.
Peters can even see American Marines being mobilized to rescue Muslims from European ports. He believes that there will come a time when the Europeans' easy life style is threatened and that's when the change will begin.
The Europeans have enjoyed a comfy ride for the last 60 years - but the very fact that they don't want it to stop increases their rage and sense of being besieged by Muslim minorities they've long refused to assimilate (and which no longer want to assimilate).
There is more to this interesting article. Give it a read.
