Native Revolt: A European Declaration of Independence

After the death last Sunday of Rinie Mulder, a 54-year old indigenous Dutchman who was shot by a police officer, non-immigrant citizens went on a rampage in Utrecht. Apparently Mulder intervened when Muslim youths harassed a pregnant native Dutch woman. Locals claim the police has failed to protect them for years. They say the authorities are afraid of the immigrants and tolerate their criminal behavior.

This issue is not just about Utrecht or Holland. Similar resentment against Muslim immigrants, but at least as much against their own authorities, is quietly brewing among the natives all over Western Europe.

It is insulting that two thirds of the Dutch, one of the founding members of the European community, voted against the proposed EU Constitution, and yet EU leaders will apparently just ignore this and force their massively undemocratic Constitution down people's throats anyway. The German Presidency wants EU leaders to agree on a text for a new treaty by February 2008. The label 'Constitution' is to be dropped, in order to avoid further referendums.

European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso expressed unease with the prospect of a second Dutch constitution referendum. "Referendums make the process of approval of European treaties much more complicated and less predictable," he said "If a referendum had been held on the creation of the European Community or the introduction of the Euro, do you think these would have passed?"

Although the EU warns against "Islamophobia," those who live in the real world know that there has been an explosion of violent infidelophobia in Western Europe staged by Muslim immigrants. This wave of violence especially targets Jews, but the attacks against Christians that are going on in the Middle East are increasingly spreading to Europe as well. In more and more cities across the continent, non-Muslims are being harassed, robbed, mugged, raped, stabbed and even killed by Muslims. Native Europeans are slowly becoming second-rate citizens in their own countries.

This violence by Muslims is usually labelled simply as "crime," but I believe it should more accurately be called Jihad. Those who know early Islamic history, as described in books such as The Truth About Muhammad by Robert Spencer, know that looting and stealing the property of non-Muslims has been part and parcel of Jihad from the very beginning. In fact, so much of the behavior of Muhammad himself and the early Muslims could be deemed criminal that it is difficult to know exactly where crime ends and Jihad begins. In the city of Oslo, for instance, it is documented that some of the criminal Muslim gangs also have close ties to radical religious groups at home and abroad. As Dutch Arabist Hans Jansen points out, the Koran is seen by some Muslims as a God-given "hunting licence," granting them the right to assault and even murder non-Muslims. It is hardly accidental that while Muslims make up about 10% of the population in France, they make up an estimated 70% of French prison inmates.

In the city of Antwerp, Belgium, Marij Uijt den Bogaard from 2003 to 2006 worked as a civil servant in the immigrant borough of Berchem. She noted how radical Islamist groups began to take over the immigrant neighbourhoods, but was fired when she warned against this danger in her reports to the authorities:

"Many victims of burglaries in houses and cars, of steaming and other forms of violence, can testify that aggression by Muslims is not directed against brothers and sisters, but against whoever is a kafir, a non-believer. Young Muslims justify their behaviour towards women who do not wear the headscarf, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, by referring to the Salafist teaching which says that these women are whores and should be treated as such. They told me this. I wrote it down in my reports, but the authorities refuse to hear it."

Filmmaker Pierre Rehov tells how a friend of his is a retired chief of police who used to be in charge of the security of a major city in the south of France. According to him, 80% of the rapes in the area were made by Muslim young men. In most cases, the parents would not understand why they would be arrested. The only evil those parents would see, genuinely, was the temptation that the male children had to face from infidel women.

The wave of robberies the increasingly Muslim-dominated city of Malmö is witnessing is part of a "war against Swedes," this according to statements from the immigrant youths themselves. "When we are in the city and robbing, we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes." This argument was repeated several times. "Power for me means that Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet."

Jonathan Friedman, an American living in Sweden, mentions that the so-called Integration Act of 1997 proclaimed that "Sweden is a Multicultural society." The Act implicitly states that Sweden doesn't have a history, only the various ethnic groups that live there. Native Swedes have been reduced to just another ethnic group in Sweden, with no more claim to the country than the Somalis who arrived there last Thursday. As Friedman puts it: "In Sweden, it's almost as if the state has sided with the immigrants against the Swedish working class."

Pierre Schori, Minister for immigration, during a parliamentary debate in 1997 said that: "Racism and xenophobia should be banned and chased [away]," and that one should not accept "excuses, such as that there were flaws in the immigration and refugee policies." In other words: It should be viewed as a crime for the indigenous population not to assist in wiping themselves out. The state is turned into an enemy of the very population it is supposed to protect. Swedes pay some of the highest tax rates in the world, and for this they get runaway crime rates and a government that is actively hostile to their interests.

Exit the People's Home of Sweden is a book from 2005 about immigration and the Swedish welfare state model. According to the authors, the Multicultural elites see themselves first of all as citizens of the world. In order to emphasize and accentuate diversity, everything that smacks of "native culture" is deliberately disparaged. Opposition to this policy is considered a form of racism:

"The dominant ideology in Sweden, which has been made dominant by powerful methods of silencing and repression, is a totalitarian ideology, where the elites oppose the national aspect of the nation state."

Researchers Gert Tinggaard Svendsen og Gunnar Lind Haase Svendsen have written the book Social Kapital. When general levels of trust were measured in 86 countries, the Nordic nations Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland came out on top. According to the authors, the trust between citizens and the trust between citizens and the state is very high in these countries, and this "social capital" is highly profitable and accounts for up a to a quarter of these countries' wealth.

However, they also warn that such trust is vulnerable. A society can lose its social capital and trust rather quickly, but it can take centuries to rebuild it. This social capital is now being squandered a matter of official state policy all over Western Europe, accompanied by wild cheers from the media and the intelligentsia.

Although such high levels of trust are in many ways attractive and desirable, they also contain some potential pitfalls. People's trusting nature may make them easy targets for outsiders from more cynical cultures, who view them as gullible fools. However, it also makes them vulnerable to threats from within.

In the 1990s, Swedish authorities decided that native Swedes and their culture had no more claim to the country than Kurds. At the same time, the country became a member of the EU. Mass immigration to Sweden started years before EU membership and wasn't caused by this, but the EU certainly didn't help. Now suddenly, as with other EU members, Swedes have most of their laws passed by unelected EU bureaucrats rather than their own elected national representatives.

Swedes were used to that laws were passed with their consent and with their best interests in mind, because by and large they had been. Within a few years, all of this has changed. Laws are now passed by EU bureaucrats who don't give a damn about their interests, and by elites who don't care about their own people, in fact view them as potential stumbling blocks for the new Multicultural society. Yet most Europeans still follow these laws. Why? I can see at least two reasons.

Germany's ex-president Roman Herzog pointed out that between 1999 and 2004, 84 percent of the legal acts in Germany stemmed from Brussels, and warned that "EU policies suffer to an alarming degree from a lack of democracy and a de facto suspension of the separation of powers. The question has to be raised of whether Germany can still unreservedly be called a parliamentary democracy."

Why is this pan-European EU dictatorship still functioning? Because seeing is believing. Most Europeans still don't know that EU leaders are using their money without their consent to merge Europe with the Arab world because their media don't tell them this. Due to the common Euro currency and the lack of national borders they can move around most of Europe at ease, which seems convenient. They don't physically see, however, that the EU has also usurped the power of their national parliaments. The latter appear to be working just as always, but have now been reduced to implementing the policies of unelected Eurocrats.

The second reason is because ordinary European citizens are held hostage by their own law-abiding nature. Abiding by rules and regulations used to serve them well in the past, but things have changed. Even the laws that are in their interest are no longer upheld. Their nations have vacated their national borders and the ensuing uncontrolled mass immigration is creating rampant urban insecurity.

For Dutchmen, in what once was a peaceful and orderly country, to go against decades of indoctrination to stage something like the recent uprisings in Utrecht, they have to feel an extreme amount of repressed frustration and anger. Perhaps they watched the media reactions to the Muslim riots in France, which were sympathetic and were followed by promises from political leaders to listen to the "legitimate grievances" of the rioters. Perhaps the native Dutch in Utrecht thought that hey, we are quiet and peaceful and yet we get only contempt from our so-called leaders. Muslims burn stuff and get concessions. Perhaps we should start burning stuff, too. What have we got to lose? We're already losing our country.

The excellent Chinese blogger Ohmyrus has warned against precisely this:

"While it took a long time for Europeans to learn to settle their differences peacefully through the ballot box, this important lesson is slowly being unlearned. The lesson learned from the Danish cartoon affair is that violence pays. Most Western governments caved in by issuing apologies or condemning the cartoons instead of defending free speech. Soon groups that oppose immigration will turn to violence too. If European democracies cannot manage their ethnic tensions, democracy will break down, ushering in dictatorial rule."

In a British poll from January 2007, a massive 82% disagreed (57% strongly) as to whether the government was in control of immigration. When asked if the government was "open and honest" about the scale of immigration into Britain, 80% disagreed. Sir Andrew Green, chairman of Migrationwatch, said: "After a decade of efforts to stifle debate, there is now a fundamental lack of trust between the Government and the public on this issue." The numbers also "reflect a deep underlying resentment among the public that they have not had any opportunity to express their views – still less to be consulted - on a matter of major importance to them and to the future of our country."

According to Theodore Dalrymple, "For the last 40 years, government policy in Britain, de facto if not always de jure, has been to render the British population virtually defenseless against criminals and criminality. Almost alone of British government policies, this one has been supremely effective: no Briton nowadays goes many hours without wondering how to avoid being victimized by a criminal intent on theft, burglary, or violence."

He fears that "the failure of the state to protect the lives and property of its citizens, and to take seriously its duty in this regard, creates a politically dangerous situation, for it puts the very legitimacy of the state itself at risk. The potential consequences are incalculable, for the failure might bring the rule of law itself into disrepute and give an opportunity to the brutal and the authoritarian."

In Norway, local politician Bengt Michalsen had a tape from a surveillance camera clearly identifying two youths as doing damage to a van at a car park. He delivered the tape to the police, and months later received a note that the case had been dismissed because the police didn't have the capacity to prosecute it. According to the local police chief, the public "just had to get used to" the fact the police wouldn't spend time on petty crime.

So, that means that Scandinavians will have to protect our own property, right? Not exactly. The authorities just want us to take it lying down and do nothing.

In Denmark, at least one of three would-be robbers shot by a watchmaker plans to file for compensation over wrongful injury, loss of work time and loss of the ability to work. The three threatened the watchmaker by putting a fake pistol up to his chin, but he had a real pistol behind his counter and managed to fire it. He was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and taken into police custody. Attorney Svend Raether said that it is possible for the thief to receive compensation, despite having been injured while committing a crime.

Citizens in Western European countries pay high taxes to a state that is totally incapable of protecting our most basic rights, and is frequently unwilling even to try. With hate speech laws we are deprived of the right to protest against being swamped by immigration that will eventually render us minorities in our own countries. The law is used to punish the law-abiding while the criminals rule the streets.

If the authorities refuse to uphold the laws designed to protect us and keep passing new laws that threaten the freedom of our children and the survival of our nations, we will sooner or later have to decide when civil disobedience becomes not just a right, but a duty. And I fear what will happen once we reach that point, which may not be too far off. Judging from the recent uprisings in Utrecht, this process has already begun.

Vladimir Bukovksy, a former Soviet dissident, fears that the European Union is on its way to becoming another Soviet Union:

"The sooner we finish with the EU the better. The sooner it collapses the less damage it will have done to us and to other countries. But we have to be quick because the Eurocrats are moving very fast. It will be difficult to defeat them. Today it is still simple. If one million people march on Brussels today these guys will run away to the Bahamas. If tomorrow half of the British population refuses to pay its taxes, nothing will happen and no-one will go to jail. Today you can still do that."

Mr. Bukovsky is right. Europeans should launch tax rebellions and stage street demonstrations in every major European city until Muslim immigration is ended. We should stage a Million Man March to Brussels, for instance on September 11th this year, to demand that the pan-European dictatorship called the European Union is dismantled. We need to get angry and squeeze our so-called leaders into doing this, since they obviously understand nothing else.

Here is what Thomas Jefferson wrote in the American Declaration of Independence from 1776:

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. [...] It is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Europeans are currently subject to worse insults from our governments than the Americans were at that time, being persecuted in our own cities and subject to a government-supported program of gradual cultural eradication. We need a European Declaration of Independence, calling for our emancipation from the bureaucratic feudalism of Brussels and the totalitarian ideology of Multiculturalism. Allow me to write the first draft:

 
A European Declaration of Independence

We, the citizens of the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, Hungary, (fill in the blanks) demand that the following steps are taken immediately:

We demand that our national governments should immediately and without delay pull their countries out of the European Union, which should be dismantled entirely. European citizens pay up to half of their salaries in direct or indirect taxes to their nation states. If these nations do not control their own borders nor their policies, and they don't as long as the EU exists, those taxes are a scam. National taxes require national borders. If our national borders are not enforced, we have no obligation whatsoever to pay national taxes.

We demand that all documents regarding the Euro-Arab Dialogue and the creation of the Eurabian networks for "Euro-Mediterranean cooperation" between European countries and Arab countries since the 1970s, as documented by Bat Ye'or's work on Eurabia, are published and explained in their full significance to the general public. Those chiefly responsible for this - one of the greatest betrayals in the history of Western civilization - should stand trial, followed by a period of general de-Eurabification of our laws and regulations.

We demand that all financial support to the Palestinian Authority should cease immediately. It is proven beyond any doubt that this has in the past been used to finance campaigns of Jihad terrorism against Jews in Israel and against Christians in territories under PA control. A public statement in support of Israel against Muslim aggression should be issued, and the money that has previously been awarded to Palestinians should be allocated partly to Israel's defense, partly to establish a Global Infidel Defense Fund with the stated goal of disseminating information about Muslim persecution of non-Muslims worldwide.

We demand that the ideology of Multiculturalism should immediately be removed from all government policies and school curricula, and that the state should adopt a policy of supporting the continuation of the cultural heritage and traditions of the indigenous populations. Multiculturalism has never been about tolerance. It is an anti-Western hate ideology championed as an instrument for unilaterally dismantling European culture. As such, it is an evil ideology bent on an entire culture's eradication, and we, the peoples of Europe, have not just a right, but a duty to resist it and an obligation to pass on our heritage to future generations.

We demand that all Muslim immigration in whatever form should be immediately and completely halted, and that our authorities take a long break from mass immigration in general until such a time when law and order has been reestablished in our major cities. We will not accept any accusations of "racism." Many European nations have for decades accepted more immigration into our countries in a shorter period of time than any other people has done peacefully in human history. We are sick and tired of feeling like strangers in our own lands, of being mugged, raped, stabbed, harassed and even killed by violent gangs of Muslim thugs, yet being accused of "racism and xenophobia" by our media and intimidated by our own authorities to accept even more such immigration.

Europe is being targeted for deliberate colonization by Muslim states, and with coordinated efforts aimed at our Islamization and the elimination of our freedoms. We are being subject to a foreign invasion, and aiding and abetting a foreign invasion in any way constitutes treason. If non-Europeans have the right to resist colonization and desire self-determination then Europeans have that right, too. And we intend to exercise it.

If these demands are not fully implemented, if the European Union isn't dismantled, Multiculturalism isn't rejected and Muslim immigration isn't stopped, we, the peoples of Europe, are left with no other choice than to conclude that our authorities have abandoned us, and that the taxes they collect are therefore unjust and that the laws that are passed without our consent are illegitimate. We will stop paying taxes and take the appropriate measures to protect our own security and ensure our national survival.

The Obama Campaign roars

FYI yesterday I had to defend Vlaams Belang against an attack by the Obama Campaign, a reaction to the Diana West article Long Division in the Washington Times, syndicated to Townhall.com. The usual rantings about neo Nazis and jackboots in the streets of Flanders! In passing Geert Wilders' Partij voor de Vrijheit also got a punch in the nose from the Obama Boys.

This is a great piece.

"please provide to me a valid source from which you got this story?"

What would be a "valid" source? I can imagine you eat up every word the BBC, CNN and the rest of the MSM feed you.

"Though I understand your sentiment about the 'Muslims' but be careful there are a lot of others who might be put off by such off the cuff remarks"

Who gives a crap who is "put off".

@jdm

I love that Danish has a word like "autoritetstro."  God, is that appropriate.  My Scandinavian friends have frequently criticized me for not accepting the consensus of elite opinion on many things, including global warming.  Specifically, one Swedish friend insisted that a movie he hadn't yet seen was very good, because the film reviewer in "Dagens Nyheter" liked it.  I reminded him that I had actually seen the movie myself and was certain it was bad.  My friend, however, was adamant that I should not accept the evidence of my own ears and eyes, but should accept the verdict handed down from the film critic, because he writes for a major newspaper.  (By the way, I have a Ph.D. in literature and publish literary criticism as part of my job.  Somehow that was not seen as authoritative, though -- probably because I'm only American and we all know how second-rate American universities are, how poor our scientific community is, and so on.)  The same friend looks down on me because, though I read the news in the newspaper, I usually skip the editorials and op-ed pieces.  I have explained to him that I feel that every educated person can process the news and form opinions on his own; indeed, democracy requires that of us.  But he insisted that the electorate should instead take its lead from opinion leaders in the media.  To do otherwise is unintelligent and American.  I wish I could say I am exagerating, but this is really how it happened.  And my friend considers himself a political moderate.

BBC article

That article Rob the Ugly American linked to from the BBC was revealing. It noted that the Americans in attendance were more resigned to the end of NATO and the Western alliance than were the Europeans. (No surpise -- that ought to tell you who has been benefiting more from the alliance, and whom it has cost more.) But it noted that the argument the Europeans make for extending the alliance is that the West needs to cooperate on the major challenges we all face -- like global warming! All along, my conspiracy-theory detector was suggesting that the Europeans were hyping the threat from climate change to give themselves a stick with which to beat the Americans in a propaganda war. Now I fear it may be pitched as a broader excuse to hold the alliance together, and keep the Americans in reserve to bomb Serbia or whomever when the Europeans need such things done. Let's get out of this silly alliance now.

The Declaration is

The Declaration is magnificent.
We need one of those here in the States.
If Europe, Oceania and English speaking North America pooled their vast talents to develop alternative energy sources, we could become independent of Muslim oil within a very short time.
We could then tell them all to go to Hell. They could then sell their oil to the Chinese, who I would wager would be less inclined to have them immigrate and a lot less PC when dealing with their savage behavior.

@ Taurus689

Have you ever wondered as to why it has never been thought by the car manufacturers so far, it has been over 2 decades at least that we in the West have known about this problem, wasn't it in the 70's when the States introduced 55mph speed limits in order to conserve the Oil supplies, even buying from the Soviets in order to minimise the purchase from the Arabs?

The Arabs have held us over a barrel(no pun intended)for decades and don't you think that the those in Washington, Israel and most definitely India would have loved it dearly if it was at all feasible, as then the whole Middle East crisis and India's Muslim problem would have been resolved.

What makes you think that only English Speaking nations have the 'Brains' to resolve this issue? There isn't a leading Automotive English speaking car manufacturing company that has the monoply in this field.

So what about the Germans or the Japanese, surely they lead this field, don't they?

I think you could cause offense to a lot of non English speaking people in the United States and in Europe who might be actively involved in this field working for a lot of American and European Corporations.

Though I understand your sentiment about the 'Muslims' but be careful there are a lot of others who might be put off by such off the cuff remarks

TO King Cobra

I spoke of the English speaking countries of North America. My intent was to exclude Mexico. They need to do a great deal of house cleaning and by that I don't mean sending all their unwanteds "rumbo al norte".
I did include ALL of Europe as potential partners in such a venture. However I do apologize to the Japanese for having left them out.

@ Taurus689

Hey,

At least you took the comment in the spirit it was made and I accept your argument about Mexico, would like to add that we shouldn't exclude the Indians either, they could benefit a lot from such develpoments as it would release them from the clutches of the Arabs who have held them to ransom over numerous Muslim issues, an India free from their Muslim problem could be a very useful ally for the west, hope you agree?

"Youths"

I find the word " Youth" interesting as it has almost taken on a new meaning.  Instead of meaning a young person, it has become a code word of the PC media who recoil at the use of the term African, Carribean or Muslim thug.

The same in the US where the name "youth" generally translates "black" thug.

 

Wow, more blatant lies and

Wow, more blatant lies and misinformation from this site.

"After the death last Sunday of Rinie Mulder, a 54-year old indigenous Dutchman who was shot by a police officer, non-immigrant citizens went on a rampage in Utrecht. Apparently Mulder intervened when Muslim youths harassed a pregnant native Dutch woman. Locals claim the police has failed to protect them for years. They say the authorities are afraid of the immigrants and tolerate their criminal behavior."

This is absolutely not what happened, what you took this from were pure rumors on Dutch sites like nieuwnieuws.nl after the man was shot, please provide to me a valid source from which you got this story? (you can't)
What happened was, Mulders went to a group of teenagers who he had been in a fight with for a while with a baseball bat, the teenagers then took the bat from him and beat him hard with it. (he bled)
Mulders, obviously not being able to think straight now, went back to his house to get a knife, his wife then called the police.
The police show up and find him on the street, Mulders walks towards the police with the knife in a threatening way, and the police shoot him as will always happen when you raise a knife to a police.

I saw on the Dutch news footage myself that during the riots that ensued many Muslims were involved as well as "natives", the riots were a reaction to the police, as always happens when the police shoot innocent people (like in Amsterdam 3 years ago when the police shot a Muslim man with a knife) and just general aversion towards police.

I saw on the Dutch news for younger persons (jeugdjournaal) an item on how his kids coped with the death, his kids were playing with Muslim kids in the school yard, etc.

So really, this site is a worthless rag, based in lies and unconfirmed information.
I think a site like this is a good idea, but don't make stuff up, that discredits you completely.

@ssoass....... thanks for conspiracy theory...

Nice, like all other incident which take some heat against islam...
here we are again with a conspiracy theory...

Thanks SSOASS.... We got a conspiracy theory now...
but for sure this is perhaps the fastest conspiracy theory ....
after 5 days at last.... thanks once again!...

Oh... Please add the line to the theory, that Mulders was under influence of Jewish spell....

Anyways by No way .... even by Human right view, or by Laws it is allowed to Police to directly shoot down a person....... Perhaps there exist something called rubber bullets to handle such cases in 1st case...... And moving towards police with a knife to attack them? havn't they missed something called "Warning"

Perfektm, it has nothing to

Perfektm, it has nothing to do with conspiracy theories, it has nothing to do with Jews.
If anything, the version put up in this article is the conspiracy theory.
Look, the police haven't given an official story (it would help if they did), but the pregnant woman angle presented in this article was the fruit of baseless rumours spread in a message board comment on a Dutch news site.
Ask the poster of this article for the source of this story, you will see he cannot give a credible source, he will tell you he got it off off comments on a Dutch site, perhaps nieuwnieuws.nl.
I saw the development of the whole story myself, I'm Dutch and I keep up on Dutch news at all times.
The version in this article was the first made up assuming version of the story, from the opening stages of the news, the version I posted (baseball bat) is the most assumable according to all sources, most every Dutch person who followed the developments will agree that the first story is flat out false and the second much more believable. (though again, it would help if the police actually said more)

Further, it's just the nature of this site that seems very false, quick to jump to conclusions, made up, etc.
For example, the previous article on this news story was called "Ethnic riots".
Now, nowhere ever on any Dutch news source did anyone ever refer to this as ethnic riots, because they simply were absolutely not.
For example, a pretty right wing site like geenstijl.nl which often bashes immigrants, they never even once said anything like this, nowhere ever in any Dutch source was this described as ethnic riots.
Yet here comes this site, which is not even Dutch, made by non Dutch people who barely know anything about what happens in The Netherlands, and they come along and out of nowhere call it ethnic riots.
See where I'm coming from?

Curious

The baseball bat comment got me thinking, do a lot of Dutch play baseball? In working class neighborhoods of Utrecht?

Otherwise, your comments don't quite mesh with those from Klein Verset. I think he is also Dutch and pays attention to the news. What there is...

The various speculations seem to indicate that the Dutch are taking the Swedish approach to these, um, kerfuffles. Nothing to see, nothing happening here, no problems, go on about your business.

Well, something did happen. I have a hard time believing the Dutch police have never encountered someone (drunk or not) with a knife without shooting him. A man is dead. A section of Utrecht rioted. It was walled off. These things seem significant.

Stranger in my own coutnry

Last time I went back to my country (Belgium) I felt like a stranger in my own country, this was 2 years ago, I needed a translator to talk to the people walking around before 5 pm, cause all the Belgians they work until 5 pm while all those other immigrants doing nothing but drinking coffee and harrasse other people. Sitting in a tram and look at them they ask if you're a "racist" which they are so paranoia, they are the biggest racists. Man I am glad I don't live there anymore, this country is so f**d by the government by letting all those muslims do whatever they like to do. Poor Belgium!! I am glad and proud to be Flemish.

@Rob the Ugly American

Count me among those Americans who believe NATO has outlived its purpose.  Even worse, it threatens to drag America into the mire of Europe's self-destruction.  I don't believe America has any duty to protect Europeans who share our basic beliefs since Europeans have every means of protecting themselves but choose not to.  More important, there are fewer and fewer Europeans who share our basic beliefs.  Why not cut out now before a change of administration brings an American president who places European interests above our own?

Regarding the end of NATO

It looks like the BBC is starting to take notice:

But these days, despite veiled threats from the Kremlin, the old definitions will not do anymore. The world is in a state of flux, with muddled divisions between foes and allies.

Seen through American eyes, it seemed the era of fixed alliances was over. From now on the United States would pick and mix

"The Cold War alliance was a golden era," observed one former diplomat shaking his head ruefully. "What we have got now is much harder, the uncertainty of grey."

He was speaking at a recent conference in Washington that brought together eminent policy makers and academics from both the United States and Europe. Their task was to explore how much the US and Europe still have in common.

And discussion had not gone very far before the prevailing American view was dumped into the European collective lap like a bucket of cold water.

"The West is an outdated concept," declared one supremely self-confident senior American official at a lunch where he was the guest of honour.

"And if there is still a West, then it includes Australia, Japan and South Korea. We have a global vision now," he continued, waving his mike like a daytime talk show host, as he roved between the immaculately set luncheon tables.

The European guests, several ambassadors among them, toyed uncomfortably with their cutlery.

The EU and the US

A while ago I replied to a comment by an Eastern European that her country was going to be joining the EU soon and it would save her country from being dominated by Russia. I told her in a few years the US would have to save her country from being dominated by the EU. She was outraged. Looks like my prediction is coming true.

Helping those who help themselves

I'm all in favor of helping those who help themselves, but contemporary Europe? Well, Count me as another American who thinks the US should take a few steps back from Europe. I don't care to be drawn into the harvest of what Europeans have sown for themselves. A most unpleasant future appears to be on the horizon.

I'm more than happy to support Western Civ defenders like Fjordman, Mr. Belien, or the folks at 18 Doughty Street - but they seem to be the exception. Those good folks deserve a lifeline. But the rest? The noise coming out of Europe these days is dominated by a bunch of spoiled brat adolescents while grown-up Europeans condone it with their silence. It's rather pathetic and next to impossible to respect, no matter how hard I try.

They're Just a Little Slow

For whatever reason, Europeans tend to be, moreso than Americans, "autoritetstro", the Danish word literally meaning believer in authority. In this regard, Europeans have been more trusting (or less interested) in the activities of their governments. For it is their own governments that have invited the Muslim immigrants and ceded power and money to the European Union.

As many have documented and the Mulder incident demonstrates, that trust (or lack of interest) is waning. Danes are further along the path to understanding than most and curiously, their neighbors and cousins, the Swedes and the Norwegians are among the least.

But while the Danish adherence to representative government and free speech has allowed Danes to express their distrust through the ballot box, various places in the rest of Europe riot or form vigilante gangs. The Danish Peoples Party has been, in spite of ridiculously exaggerated (and nasty) accusations of racism and fascism, allowed to not only operate openly but significantly influence the Danish government's policies. Especially towards immigration. The Swedish equivalent, The Swedish Democrats, has been hounded and harrassed, not only from unofficial groups but also from the Swedish government itself!

My point is that things are changing. Just slowly.

Also, as I watch how we deal with our local population of poor and uneducated Muslim immigrants in Minnesota(-stan ;-), or hear Islam referred to as religion of peace, etc, I would not put the US that far ahead of Europe. Perhaps a bit, but in a different way. The Americans who look to Europe for all things good form a large percentage of our population. They do what they can to ensure that their fellow Americans don't know about the 100 cars per night in flames in France or the Mulder riots.

The second point is that this is actually a team effort on both sides of the pond. We need to keep working this in our own ways. Making sure that people are informed. For example, someone I know started reading "While Europe Slept" by Bruce Bawer and soon everyone at her workplace (except the one dhimmi who didn't want to) knew of the problems in Europe - and, as Claire Berlinski's book states, in the end, the US.

Declaration of Independence

Great article - as an American, it's disheartening to see people willingly commit cultural suicide, but that's what you're doing.  And let's face it, your article is just that - an article.  You have identified the problem but aren't willing to take real action to do anything about it.

In 25 years, Europe will be close to living under Sharia law, and you'll still be writing articles about what a shame it is.

I used to wonder how the Jews in Europe in the 40's could have lived in denial until it was too late...now it's all clear.

Sad to say, but you're doomed.

Great article, but...

Great article! But are you serious, or is this just another great article? I've been reading great articles for a decade, and things in Europe, the US, Israel, Russia, Canada, Australia - just everywhere - keep getting worse. If this is a serious manifesto with real intentions, I think you should begin signing people up for the March on Brussels.

I am an American and do not pay European taxes, so my help is limited. But perhaps there is a way outsiders can help. If so, let us know.

Social bond

Serious calls for independence inside all Western countries are in order.  The social bond between the state and the individual is more than simply strained.  Centralized powers have taken control of our governments and direct their force against society at will. 

 

Utilizing coalitions of corporate interests, minorities and immigrants, those powers are attempting to consolidate their power.  They seek to socially engineer us to their expectations and will use the power of the state to enforce their desires against us.  People have accepted this because, among other things, the economic and personal costs of protesting it have been more than to allow it.

 

The author of the below quote is correct when he states:

"It is argued that the United States and now the world have learned a third way, something between extreme socialism and mean-spirited capitalism. But this is a dream. The so-called friendly third way endorses 100 percent the principle that government authority can be used to direct our lives and the economy. Once this is accepted, the principle that man alone is responsible for his salvation and his life on Earth, which serves as the foundation for free market capitalism, is rejected.

"The third way of friendly welfarism or soft fascism, where government and businesses are seen as partners, undermines and sets the stage for authoritarian socialism. Personal liberty cannot be preserved if we remain on the course at which we find ourselves at the close of the 20th century."

The above quote is from an essay located here (near the bottom of the page): 

 

 http://www.freewebz.com/jeffhead/liberty/RPaulSpeech.htm

 

We see our personal liberties being taken away, and it is time to begin preparations for their restoration.  When individuals lifes are taken, and more surely to be, it is past the time that steps be taken to remedy the situation.   It will not be easier to do at a later time when economic disasters or other catastrophes occur.  It will only become more necessary.  Preparations must begin for what has to be done.

 

We should recognize that none of us have this problem alone.  All of us in the West see our liberties diminished.  We accept more of it at our peril. 

 

Rob points out a danger that we ignore each others peril, but the people in the US are in the same situation as the people in Europe.  The controlling forces in government and media are assailing all of us.  Those forces are centralized and would want us to be divided as people.  That would only make it easier for them.  Those forces should be resisted and our bond together as free people should be retained.

 

 

Read G. K. Chesterton

Marvelous timing! Last evening I was editing for publication a new edition of The Napoleon of Notting Hill, G. K. Chesterton's classic 1904 defense of a people's right to be a nation with culture and traditions of their own, a book that heavily influenced both Irish and Indian nationalism.

Chesterton's tale is set eighty years later in 1984, a date that some believe led George Orwell to place his novel that same year. All the world's smaller nation's have been crushed out of existence by a vast EU-like bureaucracy ruled not by tyrants but by a king selected almost at random. Most people seem reconciled to a mind-numbing, unique-culture-destroying bureaucracy of incompetents.

Only one man thinks differently. Although the post this Adam Wayne holds seems insignificant--the "High Provost" of Notting Hills, a poor neighborhood with only a few shops--he is inspired by a love of the little place where he grew up and first fell in love. When a planned highway is about to destroy their little community's Pump Street, he rallies its people to fight back. And due in no small part to the arrogance of his foes, he wins.

Here are the tale's best known lines, beginning with a question from the king.

"You have come, my Lord, about Pump Street?”

“About the city of Notting Hill,” answered Wayne, proudly, “of which Pump Street is a living and rejoicing part.”

“Not a very large part,” said Barker, contemptuously.

“That which is large enough for the rich to covet,” said Wayne, drawing up his head, “is large enough for the poor to defend.”

My edition will be called Patriotism and will include an extensive collection of Chesterton's other writings on the topic of a people's right to be their own sort of nation, but you should be able to pick up a copy of Notting Hill itself quite easily. I don't think it has ever gone out of print.

Interesting Aside: Chesterton's tale begins with his own remarks about ordinary people playing a game called "Cheat the Prophet" in which they listen to all the experts predict the future and then do something else. Thanks to Reagan, Europe's future will not look like Orwell's 1984. Thanks to the jihadists, it seems unlike to end up like Huxley's Brave New World. That means that the early 20th century prediction about the future that comes closest to describing the Europe of the early 21st century is that of Chesterton in Notting Hill.

Also keep in mind that Chesterton makes heavy use of the absurd. There are two reasons for that. In the early stages of a revolt against a vast, culture-crushing system, fighting back can seem as ridiculous as fighting a modern war with banners, swords and medieval titles. To win, we have to push back against that feeling with a certainity about our vision. Second, a lot of the culture that makes up a nation really does have an element of the absurd: fireworks on the Fourth of July, Santa at Christmas and so forth. Human culture, Chesterton is saying, shouldn't be confined to the coldly efficient and rationalistically bureaucratic. Some things should be done simply because they connect us with our past and who we are as a people.

The natives are getting restive II

Hmm, that went well! Lets start again by saying that I'm a neophyte here so I'll try and behave. I heartily subscribe to the post and the declaration, all of it. It's a serious matter and I think the time has come to look at it seriously, before the whole shebang blows up in our faces. How do you propose to go about this, or is it just symbolic? Blogburst? Send it somewhere with a signature on it? That'll make an impression. Better be fast before it gets illegal.

Anti-Israel

Those Europeans who are Anti-Israel (so far I see two), you make me sick.

Bad confluence of events

I don't live in Europe, so I must admit my first-hand ignorance, and I find this account and others I've read over the internet very troubling. I find it astounding that we hear next to nothing of this in the US; the internet gave us the hope that we could break through the filter of the uniformity of the media, but I guess that is only at this point for people who choose to look. It seems to me the first problem is the media, which really has become the most powerful force, at least in the US, after Watergate. In the US, we see some of the same increase in distrust in all areas of authority, exacerbated by Bush v. Gore. It seems we share this trend of the breakdown in trust, especially as some of our own institutions are cleverly used against us; for example, six imams are suing an airline after they started praying and acting like they were going to hijack the plane, and so were thrown off the flight. Not only is the airline being sued, but so are the passengers that reported the suspicious behavior. The meaning of this couldn't be more clear: if you report a Muslim who's acting suspiciously on an airplane, you face a lawsuit. This is leading to an increasing feeling of powerlessness (but, at least we can still own guns).

But, just as importantly, the trans-Atlantic alliance is breaking down. I see many of the same trends in our view of the UN happening with our feelings toward Europe. Over time, Americans began to distrust the UN, we wondered if the problem was with us, but we became increasingly frustrated, and now we view it, at best, as a place for political whores. We see ourselves portrayed in the European media as the snake in an international Eden. And our own media parrots this view. At first, we asked 'Why do they hate us?' We love and admire Europe, most of our ancestors came from Europe, and we are raised with the understanding that defending Europe, if it becomes necessary, is somehow our duty. But that question and duty is increasingly being questioned, as it seems there isn't much we can do to change what seems to be an irrational feeling toward us, maybe because of the media (a poll released this week shows that over 80% of Americans believe the media gives us a biased view). Most Americans would admit Iraq was a mistake, but Europeans seem to want to impute the most base motives for our actions there. This is spreading within the US, as well. But, it is starting to do real damage to our relations. For the first time in my lifetime, Americans are questioning why we need NATO, that it's served its purpose in defeating the Soviets, and why should we be committed to defending people who seem to want to see us so negatively. I see the same lack of faith or interest or trust that Americans now have with the UN spreading to Europe and the concept of NATO.

Anyway, great blog.

Israel, Christianity

Amsterdamsky - Israel is part of the western world; it's conflict with Islam is not so different from that of Europe. Will you similarly blast European countries if-and-when they find it necessary to perform similar "defensive actions" against their own Islamic invaders?

Regarding God, it is an important idea for enabling human coöperation, not unlike nationalism or tribalism or communism. Claiming that the Jewish God is the same as the Islamic or Christian God is obviously false, since these different religions have very different ideas about what God wants you to do, which is the only way in which the idea of God matters in the physical world. Christian ideas about God are implicit to the current "liberal" viewpoint of the world. The question of whether Christianity can be used towards the defense of the west is an open one, but it may prove vital.

Lost me here. Not my G-d or Holy War thank you very much.

"We demand that all financial support to the Palestinian Authority should cease immediately. It is proven beyond any doubt that this has in the past been used to finance campaigns of Jihad terrorism against Jews "

Although I completely agree with dropping funding for the PA the follow-on is total propaganda and the one and only thing I think I disagree with Fjordman on. I could give a flying-F what happens to the fascist zionist state of Israel and I don't wan't my tax money involved in "defensive actions" by Israel like trashing all their neighbors infrastructure or whatever their propaganda artists call it. Just like I could care less what happens in muslim Sudan. Don't we have enough problems here in europe without engaging in other peoples Holy Wars for their imaginary G-D (which by the way is the same F-ing for for Judaism, Christainity AND Islam!!!!!) ENOUGH!!!!

@ Amsterdamsky

A strong second to that Amsterdamsky....

I was rolling along nodding in agreement to the Declaration. 'Good for Europe' I think. And then pops up Israel? Sorry, doesn't fly with me nor I think the great majority of Europeans dissatisfied with the current destruction of Europe. Yes, certainly, enough is enough.

Good on Ya!

Good for you, Fjordman. This eloquent statement can serve as a rallying cry for the West. Let us act before it is too late!

European or Judeo-Christian Declaration of Independence?

Fjordman: "We demand that all financial support to the Palestinian Authority should cease immediately. It is proven beyond any doubt that this has in the past been used to finance campaigns of Jihad terrorism against Jews in Israel and against Christians in territories under PA control. A public statement in support of Israel against Muslim aggression should be issued, and the money that has previously been awarded to Palestinians should be allocated partly to Israel's defense, partly to establish a Global Infidel Defense Fund with the stated goal of disseminating information about Muslim persecution of non-Muslims worldwide."

 

What about violence between Christians and Muslims throughout Africa and in Southeast Asia? Why not include declarations that mention these as well? What about trade with Islamic states (e.g. in the Gulf), does this continue?

I support it

i am not a European citizen... but a tax payer in EU...

 and i also support this independence... because EU is just a tool making Europe to move towards Suicide..... the policies are stinking now...

 i love European culture... but European constitution... it has gone beyond limits..... no constitution in world ask to kill Native citizens ... and save criminal foreigners(Muslim of course, which people fear to speak)....

this is democracy... which is build on concept of equal respect..

and if islamofacist cant give this respect to us... then they don't deserve that respect too...

 

How Long Ago Was This Declaration Written?

Nothing has changed for the better. There is almost no hope since most have become indifferent, something the islamists and new world order take advantage of. Even if the majority takes initiative against what this author is mentioning, there is always the chance the inevitable "spring" will be manipulated by the treasonous elites, while the masses do not manage to analyse, indicate, or fix the worst of issues we are facing.

Nonetheless this article has many valid points which everyone should contemplate, despite the fact that Fjordman occasionally writes a few things which not everyone may agree with.

By the way

does anyone know how decision makers in the European Union elected? Are they chosen differently according to which function they perform?

@ Souviens

The commission members are not elected, they are "selected" in back kitchen discussions, just like Van Rompuy was. After the selection they are ruber stamped by the elected European parlement which is composed mainly of political has-beens put out to pasture, with a few lucky exceptions like Farage.
