Human history has always been marked by major population shifts, from earliest hominid times over the Horn of Africa to the present moment when what social scientists and historians define as a “demographic transition” is occurring. Whether as a result of military campaigns and their attendant population dislocations or great migrations owing to plague, material deprivation, the lure of new settlements or economic factors, what we might call the “demography of exodus” is one of the great drivers of historical change. In the current age, there can be little doubt that a kind of volkswanderung (German for “migrations of peoples”) or, perhaps more shockingly, a return to the “Dark Ages” is taking place before our eyes. As professor Judith Klinghoffer of Rutgers University writes, in an article titled “Dark Ages Redux” dealing with the influx of immigrants into the West from Muslim countries, “with each and every passing day the price for defeating the forces of darkness is getting higher and higher and ultimate victory less and less certain.”

In effect, what is taking place is an invasion by other means. The Muslims are coming, and not as members of a comedy troupe of that name. Terrorism, as we know, can cause serious damage, both psychological and physical, and is an excellent means of softening up its target. That is why we have long lines at airports, pat-down searches, confiscation of innocuous items. That is why many people flinch with anxiety when they see bearded Muslims and burka’d women among the passengers, though few will admit it for fear of being condemned as racists or bigots — the fruit of political correctness. That is why stray backpacks and suitcases can bring in the bomb squad. That is why events in which large numbers of people are massed together can cause nervous glances cast over shoulders. That is why gays, women, Christians and Jews — and let’s not forget dog owners — may find themselves in danger in neighborhoods with a growing Muslim presence, as is the case in many European cities and now in some of ours. That is why there is a chill on the meaningful and honest discussion of Islamic subjects in the press and the publishing industry. That is why only a vanishingly small number of printed sources reproduced the Danish cartoons. That is why anti-Islamic authors and film-makers are murdered in the streets, arrested or driven into hiding. That is why art exhibits focusing on provocative issues, especially Islamic themes — such as, most recently, the London-based Passion For Freedom — are forced to cancel. That is why our intelligence agencies are working overtime. The jihadists of the sword have succeeded in creating a climate of fear — let’s call it an atmosfear — that has changed our way of life for the worse, turning us into a society of cringers and invertebrates. The target has been softened up so that the jihadists of the pen can advance the labor of colonization.

We have reached the point at which, even if by some miracle every last Muslim terrorist could be eliminated, the situation would not alter appreciably. For the real onslaught is occurring peacefully, via unstinted Muslim immigration into the West, burgeoning demographics outpacing Western population replacement ratios, infiltration of the civil apparatus including the judiciary, the legal profession, the legacy media, the educational curriculum from top to bottom, the interfaith community, and the various levels of government, municipal, state and national.

Add to this the concerted effort of the extremely powerful 57-state Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the United Nations to criminalize the chimera of “Islamophobia” as hate speech. As Deborah Weiss writes, “It is attempting to pass the equivalent of Islamic blasphemy codes,” launching “a campaign to provide disinformation to the public, delinking all Islam from…undesirable traits, and attack[ing] all who insist on [unflattering] truths as bigots, racists and Islamophobes.” The OIC delegates and their allies at the U.S. State Department that have signed on to a variant of the original draft (called Resolution 16/18) have absorbed the significance of Proverbs 18:21: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”

The thing that is most appalling about this article is the overwhelming stench of cowardice and defeatism.

" We face an implacable enemy, boo-hoo. We will never defeat them, boo-hoo. They are getting the better of us, boo-hoo. "

What a load of excrement! Tokyo Rose personified.

We face a semi-literate, barley-human population of cowardly thugs that we could wipe off the face of the map. Pick out five or six capital cities and bomb them into parking lots. Take the thousand worst terrorists line them up and make their families pay for the bullets that terminate their reign of terror.

Pieces like Solways make me sick. Hiding behind some sense of false morality they make it seem that we have no right to make the bastards pay the ultimate price. We do, we must and we will.

The ultimate morality and justification for action was given to us by The Almighty almost four thousand years ago -

" If someone comes to kill you, kill him first . "

Honor, courage and dry powder. There is no substitute for victory.

" ... A complete ban on immigration from Muslim nations is just common sense."

You will fly to the moon in a Piper Cub before that happens. You live in NYC and sit in a room with a computer. I live in the rural Midwest. I sit in a room with a computer and a well-stocked gun cabinet. You are the one who, if you plan to survive, had best be thinking in more practical terms concerning immigration.

Quite right, David. Only the peril is magnified and accelerated by combining radical Islam with radical leftism. At first blush, these bedfellows defy logic as a pairing. "Anything goes" hedonism combining as a force multiplier with barbarism in mullah clothing.

Makes no linear sense and fools the senses into disbelief, one refuse to believe one's lying eyes.

Except, they have a common enemy...and seem quite willing to "set aside" their core differences to achieve their main goal. Weakening the foundations of Western constitutional democracies and their Judeo-Christian influences. They both view the Bible and it's followers as an impediment to "proper" rule.

They both would like to "attrition out" those "bitter clingers", who resist most ardently the assault on freedom, liberty, constitutional protections and worship of the Old Testament and New Testament God.

The Muslims through invasion and small c Communists through infestation.

The Muslims using immigration and terrorism to "breed and bleed" out the "infidel in his own home". The small c Communist coming in the mask of a "liberal", to seize the mantles of power, and beating the unsuspecting with their own rule books.

The Muslims even adopt the "victim vs oppressor" lexicon in order to advance against the common enemy. Our senses dulled, our wits dimmed....by the VERY effective construction of the Propaganda Machine built by the radical leftists, the seizure and vice-like grip on the cultural watering holes of academia and entertainment...strangles truth out of the culture and denies oxygen to the resistance. Brilliantly conceived and nearly flawless in its execution...the leftists have so poisoned the information stream...those who dare to speak the truth are ridiculed, slandered and marginalized brutally and immediately.

The day may come when these bedfellows face off for world domination. They will turn on each other, the wolves and the jackals. But not today. Not yet. They have a mission to complete first.

They need to destroy us. And our countries. And our God.

Excuse me, but this site a couple of weeks advocated the US intervening on behalf of the Al Quaida terrorists that form the "rebels" that are fighting the Assad regime in the Syrian civil war.

The expressed rationale is that it would improve our "alliance" with our "Dear friend" Saudi Arabia.

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

Right, there were many on this site that supported the jihadis against the Assad regime, but not me. The best we can do in the Middle East is to support the most secular forces in the region. Otherwise we should not allow ANY Muslim immigration into the West. We Armenians don't allow massive Muslim immigration into Armenia; we know where that will lead, but apparently the French and the rest of the EU forgot history and eventually they will be history. It's too late for the EU, but not for the US or Eastern Europe or Russia. The Russians still remember their history and will survive in spite of the terrible demographics because they know and are taking action to counter it. The US, however, is a marching moron, blindly marching to the edge of the cliff.

I’m sorry the UN misbehaves in so many ways, that the UN’s position on blasphemy, or women, or decolonization, or global warming, or islam is of no interest to me.

After the UN is destroyed the just peoples of the world, it will be of historical interest. Until then….

The countries in which the islamists have made great progress are those in which the population is unarmed. One mullah, one round.

It is THE ISLAMIC WORLD WAR.

Waged against all non-Islamic people's and civilizations in every corner of the globe, inspired by Allah, mandated by Muhammed, commanded in the Koran, directed, motivated and financed by the Islamic reichstag in Mecca.

1400 years of history shows that it will never stop until it is stopped.

THE ISLAMIC WORLD WAR - It's real.

Solway is making the mistake of assuming that the demographics are inseparable from the ideas. The ideas of first- and second-generation immigrants aren't going to be the ideas of the fourth and fifth generations. Islam and the West had little to do with one another from the 17th century until the post-war development of the Middle East's oil resources. That made the cultural conflicts more severe. Cultures take time to be assimilated, especially when the demographics have changed quickly.

I would worry if Western culture were in some way inferior to Islamic culture, but it's not. The fact that Muslims are choosing to immigrate is the best evidence of that. You don't need to fear Islam as long as you're convinced that Western culture really isn't decadent. And if it is, we've got bigger things to worry about than Islamists.

I would worry if Islamic terrorism were an existential threat, but it's not. It's definitely a problem, but it's not like the security establishment isn't aware of the problem. And let's remember that in the places where political Islam is a problem, it's because the oil states are funding it. In 10 years, the Middle East energy boom will be in serious decline, and the money will dry up. And if that decline precipitates some final death-spasm of violence, well, we know what happens in real live military confrontations between the West and the Middle East, don't we? We've seen three of them in the last 25 years. The counter-insurgency has been problematic, but the straight-up fighting hasn't.

Multiculturalism is a stupid idea, but cultural tolerance isn't. Cultural tolerance is the West's secret sauce, allowing us to incorporate the good ideas from our immigrant populations while we assimilate them. But that assimilation takes time. All that's required is a little vigilance and a lot of patience and everything will be fine.

If I read you correctly you don't see the danger to the West. If the West doesn't stop Muslim immigration then the infiltration of Western institutions by Islam will continue. Consider that Muslims as agents of the Muslim Brotherhood are already inside the US government, in the DHS, FBI, CIA, the US military, Congress, the White House. Muslim infiltration is already far along. It is only a matter of time before it will be too late. Western culture is already decadent, the West is post Christian. There is no will left in the West to stop Islam.

The muslims work the same angle as do the homosexuals, blacks, hispanics, the sierra club, liberal women and every other small minority that seeks to control the laws and culture of a heretofore silent majority. They are aided by liberals of all stripes who have taken over the airwaves, entertainment and education system to indoctrinate the fools they churn out known as low info voters. Muslims are the least of our problems right now- though a problem for sure.

Muslims pose a threat like a cancer; when you first get cancer, you're not all that sick but if you don't undergo treatment, you are more likely to die. If we don't do something now about creeping sharia, it will ultimately get to the point that the threat of Islam will become imminent & we will have no choice but to go to war.

It’s a mistake to conflate Canada with the US where Islamization is not “proceeding apace” as the author alleges to be the case in Canada. None but the most hackneyed academic would predict this happening here based on numbers and a to-be-determined appeal of Islam at some future date. We have our share of PC, but Canada has a very European style multiculturalism that makes Islamization a possibility, although not an inevitability.

The Population Bomb Theory of creeping Islamization runs into the same problem that Muslims seeking residency here find—as their coreligionist have known for some time—that multicultural tolerance of Islam is limited mainly to media and academia circles and society as a whole has little regard for its strictures. And any Muslim here would have little situational awareness to believe that American tolerance will never be put aside for a limited time and for a limited reason on their account.

The Inevitability of Islam Theory also runs head-on into the fact that Islam has little appeal to Americans and Westerners in general. Increased Muslim immigration isn’t likely to make it any more popular than it is now and increases in their numbers will likely make Islam more of an aggravation than it is now. And, if it helps, mention is now made of the fact that the ascendency of a Muslim tolerant chief executive will pass and normalcy will return to both American domestic and foreign policy.

Quoting the likes of a flake like Tariq Ramadan doesn’t exactly buttress the point the author is trying to make.

I invite you to examine Dearborn, Michigan, and surrounding communities, and THEN repeat your conjecture. . . We just haven't hit critical mass yet, like Europe has. . .

It's interesting to note though that in all Western countries where there is a large enough population of them, problems do exist. Do the research.

It’s more about the PC culture in Europe being so much farther left, leading to the near coddling of Muslim militants. If you’re aware of MMs here getting out in public and condemning the US in a similar manner I would like to know about it. If you know of Muslims here telling cops that they are forbidden to trespass in their enclaves I would also like to know about that, too. What Muslims do in public in Europe and what they do here in public are two different things. It has something to do with every American’s right to bear arms. Think about it.

David as usual gives his intricate and detailed dissection of a cultural and political phenomenon. For those who are inclined to investigate further, I recommend the highest authority on Islamism and Islamization, the incomparable Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who once was a Muslim, lives under fatwa, and has published books and articles detailing in every way the themes of David's article.

In short, she says, there are moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam.

There's a simple solution: Import a few million Hindus and Chinese. After that, it will be necessary for the Muslims to be on their best behavior.

We need a real multicultural society. If there are two competing ethnic groups in a democratic government, it might make sense for both sides to try to drive each other out and seize control. When there are multiple groups in a society, any such attempt on the part of one group can be blocked by a coalition. The arguments of "The Federalist Papers" apply just as strongly to real multicultural societies (not the imaginary ones invented by the left in order to scare the right) as to multiregional societies. Civil wars usually have two sides. When there are more than two sides, peace is a much better tactic.

We already have a multicultural world where multiple ethnic/cultural/religious groups live side by side, each in its own quarter called nation state. I don't see why Europe, Canada or the US need to recreate the global order inside their borders. Chinese and Hindus already have their rather large states, Muslims already have more than 50 states from which non-Muslims are gradually driven out completely. The only simple and realistic solution is to stop Muslim immigration into non-Muslim countries. With 50+ states they already have plenty of land and natural resources. It's not like if they won't have London and Paris they'll have nowhere to live. Immigration makes sense for stateless peoples like the Roma and for non-Muslim refugees from Muslim controlled lands who really have nowhere to go.

In medieval times, people created fairy tales and magical creatures to make sense of their world. One of the most endearing is the unicorn, a horse with a single horn that symbolized purity and wholesomeness. In our modern times, people in Europe and the United States consider themselves more sophisticated and rational than people from the Middle Ages, but we still create myths, albeit more subtle ones.

Daily we hear reports of violent acts committed by Islamic terrorists on every inhabited continent. We try to wish it away with the myth of the ‘Moderate Muslim’, telling ourselves the Islamic agenda has been’ hijacked’ by a tiny minority of 'islamists’ and that soon the huge, silent, 'moderate majority' of Muslims will take charge and change things. However, post 9/11 very few Muslims have condemned terrorist actions. We are still waiting for 'moderates' to stand and deliver, identifying and removing 'extremist thugs' from their mosques and their communities. Waiting for this self-correction is our modern version of searching for unicorns.

"Moderate" Muslims will not be able to wrest control of the agenda for several reasons. First of all, Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah’s eternal word, was not moderate. No "moderate" can legitimately tell another Muslim to stop doing the things Mohammed himself did. Also, the Qur’an condones violence and coercion to further the Islamic agenda. People whom we call 'moderates' are labeled hypocrites by Allah Himself in the Qur’an. 'Moderates' will always lose the argument because, as ex-Muslim author Ibn Warraq says, “There may be 'moderates' in Islam but Islam itself is not moderate.”
