Europe & the Arabs

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk



The current political bickering about details of the war waged against the United States by the Arab community has obscured the principal issue which led to the attack on New York in 2001. That is the survival of western civilization.

It is of course certain that in an election year politicians will seek any event and any means to gain advantages for their candidates and their party. That is the reason for the uproar over the mistreatment of some Iraqi prisoners even as no one has yet asked the Saudi government to apologize for the murder of 3,000 Americans in 1.5 hours by 19 Saudi citizens.

As the campaign progresses it appears that the Democratic candidate sounds more and more like the Arab propagandists, who must be most happy to see their point of view so ably represented by a U.S. senator.

Now if we want to foresee what will happen to us if we cave in to our enemies and apologize for defending ourselves we need only take a look at what has already happened to Europe, and particularly France.

France has a population of 60 million. Of these, 6 million are Muslims. France, and most of Europe, has now surrendered to the Arab world by numerous economic, industrial, cultural and financial arrangements with the Arab League. This has led, first and foremost, to an anti-Israel stance which the Arabs hope to repeat in this country. Such a possibility is now at hand as the Democratic candidate, raised in France, will allow the French to dictate American foreign policy

In view of the ever greater rate of Muslim immigration to France from numerous Mediterranean countries, it can be foreseen that by 2050, France will be the third Muslim country in Europe. The other two are Albania and Turkey.

The high rate of immigration by Arabs into France has additional unforeseen consequences. One of these is the high intermarriage rate. Because France is no longer a Christian country because the churches are empty and the Catholic religion largely abandoned, many French men and women marry Muslims. These Muslims demand that the children raised by them be Muslims as well. Now consider the birth rate. The overall French birth rate is 1.9 per woman aged 15-35. This is the same as in the U.S.  The Muslim birthrate in France is 4.0, or more than double the average. Evidently then, Islam will become the dominant religion in France in a short time.

These demographic facts are the reason for the anti-Jewish attitude of the current French government, who must take the Muslim population into consideration if it wants to win elections. There are only 600,000 Jews in France. They have no political impact.

Germany now has 3 million Muslims and England nearly 2 million. In proportion to 80 million Germans and 55 million Englishmen this is a small number. Nevertheless, both of these countries are facing the same demographic issues France is experiencing. Therefore, the European Union, which now has a population of 400 million, is allying itself with the Arab countries for the purpose of challenging the power of the United States in the world.

Take a look at what happened in Spain. On March 12, 2004, the Arabs bombed a Spanish train just before the federal election in that country. The outcome was that the incumbent prime minister, Asnar, was defeated because the Arabs let it be known they would do more damage if Spain continued its alliance with the United States. Fearing the Arabs, the Spanish elected his opponent, Zabatera, who had run on an anti-U.S. platform. In other words, Osama bin Laden dictated Spanish foreign policy.

The threat continues. Only if we now stand up to the Muslim assault on Western civilization can we survive. Yet, we find the Democrats and their candidate ripping apart the U.S. military and our President for attempting to defeat the Arab threat before it comes to this country.

The Arab threat is of course not new. In the eighth century the Arabs had overrun all of Spain and then entered France. Their defeat at the Battle of Narbonne in 759 assured that Western Europe would not become Muslim. Then, as late as 1683, the Muslims appeared before the gates of Vienna after overrunning all of the Balkans. They were again defeated, at the Battle of Vienna under the leadership of the Polish king Jan Sobieski, after whom a street in Buffalo is named (Next to Paderewski street. Paderewski was a composer, pianist and President of Poland in the 1920ís).

Today the world is once more facing a new battle of Narbonne and Vienna. After all these years the Muslims once more seek to destroy Western civilization, beginning with Israel. That is why the erstwhile dictator of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, paid Arab terrorists for each Jew murdered. That is also why Hussein fired missiles into Tel Aviv. Therefore we Jews, were we normal people, would be grateful to our President for invading Iraq and removing the threat to the U.S. and Israel all at once.

Instead, American Jews attack George W. Bush, promote the agenda of the Arabs, ignore the threat to our brethren in Israel and seek the election of a man who finds no fault with the slaughter of 3,000 Americans in 1.5 hours by Arab terrorists, even while going berserk over the insults delivered to our enemies in Iraq by our armed forces.

May Shem Yisborach protect us from ourselves.

Shalom uívracha.
