Giulio Meotti: Islam, Not Christianity, Is Saturating Europe

Authored by Giulio Meotti via The Gatestone Institute,

  • Jihadists seem to be leading an assault against freedom and against secular democracies.
  • Sunni Islam's most prominent preacher, Yusuf al Qaradawi, declared that the day will come when, like Constantinople, Rome will be Islamized.
  • It is Islam, not Christianity, that now saturates Europe's landscape and imagination.

According to US President Trump's strategic advisor Steve Bannon, the "Judeo-Christian West is collapsing, it is imploding. And it's imploding on our watch. And the blowback of that is going to be tremendous".

The impotence and the fragility of our civilization is haunting many Europeans as well.

Europe, according to the historian David Engels will face the fate of the ancient Roman Republic: a civil war. Everywhere, Europeans see signs of fracture. Jihadists seem to be leading an assault against freedom and against secular democracies. Fears occupy the collective imagination of Europeans. A survey of more than 10,000 people from ten different European countries has revealed increasing public opposition to Muslim immigration. The Chatham House Royal Institute of International Affairs carried out a survey, asking online respondents their views on the statement that "all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped". In the 10 European countries surveyed, an average of 55% agreed with the statement.

Mainstream media are now questioning if "Europe fears Muslims more than the United States". The photograph used in the article was a recent Muslim mass prayer in front of Italy's monument, the Coliseum. In echoes of the capture of the great Christian civilization of Byzantium in Constantinople, Sunni Islam's most prominent preacher, Yusuf al Qaradawi, declared that the day will come when Rome will be Islamized.

Do civilizations die from outside or inside? Is their disappearance the result of external aggression (war, natural disasters, epidemics) or of an internal erosion (decay, incompetence, disastrous choices)? Arnold Toynbee, in the last century, was adamant: "Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder".

"The contemporary historian of ancient Greece and ancient Rome saw their civilisations begin their decline and fall, both the Greeks and the Romans attributed it to falling birth rates because nobody wanted the responsibilities of bringing up children," said Britain's former chief rabbi, Lord Sacks.

Everywhere in Europe there are signs of a takeover.

Muslim students now outnumber Christian students in more than 30 British church schools. One Anglican primary school has a "100 percent Muslim population". The Church of England estimated that about 20 of its schools have more Muslim students than Christian ones, and 15 Roman Catholic schools have majority Muslim students. In Germany as well, there are fears of a massive Muslim influx into the school system, and German teachers are openly denouncing the threat of a "ghettoization".

France saw 34,000 fewer babies born last year than in 2014, a new report just found. The number of French women having children has reached its lowest level in 40 years. A low fertility rate has become a plague all over Europe: "In 1995 only one country, Italy, had more people over 65 than under 15; today there are 30 and by 2020 that number will hit 35." Welcome to the "Greying of Europe".

Additionally, if it were not for Muslim women, France would have an even lower birth rate: "With a fertility rate of 3.5 children per woman, the Algerians contribute significantly to the growth of the population in France", wrote the well-known demographer Gérard-François Dumont.

Thanks to Muslim migrants, Sweden's maternity wards are busy these days.

In Milan, Italy's financial center, Mohammed is the top name among newborn babies. The same is true in London, in the four biggest Dutch cities and elsewhere in Europe, from Brussels to Marseille. It is Islam, not Christianity, that now saturates Europe's landscape and imagination.

Meanwhile, Europe's leaders are almost all childless. In Germany, Angela Merkel has no children, as British prime minister Theresa May and one of France's leading presidential candidates, Emmanuel Macron. As Europe's leaders have no children and no reason to worry about the future (everything ends with them), they are now opening Europe's borders to keep the continent in a demographic equilibrium. "I believe Europeans should understand that we need migration for our economies and for our welfare systems, with the current demographic trend we have to be sustainable", said Federica Mogherini, the European Union representative for foreign affairs.

The Battle of Tours in 732 was the high-water point of the Muslim tide in Western Europe. If Christians had not won, "perhaps," wrote Edward Gibbon, "the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mahomet". Does that sound familiar these days?

Islamists take culture and history more seriously than the Westerners do. Recently, in Paris, an Egyptian terrorist tried to strike the great museum, the Louvre. He planned to deface the museum's artwork, he said, because "it is a powerful symbol of French culture". Think about an Islamic extremist shouting "Allahu Akbar" while slashing the Mona Lisa. This is the trend we need to start reversing.

"Meanwhile, officials in Italy, which has received about 500,000 migrants in the last three years, say that rescue vessels operated by charities and humanitarian organizations – some of which reportedly receive funding from billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundations (OSF) -- are working with smugglers based in Libya."

Politicians that give lip service to judeo-christian values would have little hesitation to change their "faith" and pretend to be muslim to preserve their hold on power.

With regards to comment "As crazy as it may sound, Putin may be the great savior of Christianity in Europe", the Bible says no and there are a lot of reasons why not listed here including the fact that 25% of the Russian army is made up of Muslims.

I want to suggest there will be another outcome and it will involve China. Why?

See text below:

The Back to Jerusalem movement is a Christian evangelistic campaign that began in mainland China by Chinese believers to send missionaries to all of the Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim peoples who live "between" China and Jerusalem. They believe that the Back to Jerusalem Movement is a call from God for the Chinese church to preach the gospel and establish fellowships of believers in all countries, cities, towns, and ethnic groups between China and Jerusalem. It began in the 1920s.

China has the population to achieve the GOAL and numbers suggested will be around 200,000,000. That is one huge army of evangelists/warriors which will overwhelm the pagans.

to all of the Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim peoples who live "between" China and Jerusalem


Someone is trying to convert Hindus to Christianity? Good luck. 

It is the Buddhism that stopped the advance of Islam into Central Asia; Buddha and Mohammed are still fighting it out. Christianity has had some success with Buddhists in Korea and Vietnam, but Hindus are a lot more difficult.

GUS100CORRINA's picture

If the GOD of the Bible be for it, who can be against it?

You might ask how could this happen? There are no roads? How would 200,000,000 people be part of this evangelistic movement?

Answer: The CHINESE SILK ROAD ... construction is already underway. (

We all need to remember that it is GOD who changes the heart, not man. Man is simply the messanger being used to deliver a message.

Jesus did say: "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one (All) can get to the Father except through me," GOD will make it happen if it is His will according to His purpose in His perfect time.

Europe has been disarmed under the false premise that their governments will protect the citizenry and that the social order will be maintained by a corrupt and bankrupt system. Europeans, your oligarchs have their body guards and their escape plans.  You however are on your own.  Arm yourselves.  In response to the Muslim conquest, Christianity will once again radicalize.

The modern sword of a Christian Knight is one of these:

In his last days, Jesus gave his followers some survival advice.  It would be wise to heed it.  “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a sack: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” Luke 22:36


If you can survive the first month of collapse, your chances of survival will go up exponentially.  The horde will begin to diminish in three days without water.  In three weeks without food and they will be done.  Hedge accordingly.

Islam is not Pagan.

It is one branch of the three alien, monotheistic death cults that emerged from the deserts .

Eurasia is naturally Pagan, from Ireland to Beijing

 For 40000 years the pantheistic religions have washed back and forth across Eurasia. Christ himself was a Budist monk.

Monotheism is a recent phenomena. It is only 1300 years old in Northern Europe. It was imposed upon us by Charlemagne the butcher.

This Islamic branch is no worse and no better than the other two branches. What you see before you is a return to form.

However Paganism is strong within us. The monotheism religion is but a cloth thrown over pur dear traditions.. Christmas is Jule and Easter is Oestra.(What do you think the easter eggs are about? And the Easter bunny?)

The triune god is a concession to us about the sacredness of the number three.

Tyr, who is still worshipped in Mongolia is our Sky God.

And no. We haven't forgotten Irminsul nor Hypatia who was cut to pieces by a mob of your cult with sea shells.

Make no error.There will be traitors amongst us who will, through fear, embrace this latest version of the Semitic Death Cult, but our Tyr is deeply embedded in our psyche and cannot so easily esponged. It is who we are.

btw put-ins form of christianity, orthodox christianity, is one of the most vicious one - (very similar to sunni islam)

it takes money from poor. interferes in politics and restricts knowlege. it turns the population into pigeons. it censors and forbids criticism of its system. interferes into peoples private life and tries to control all aspects of humans.

where did you hear this before?

Chinese or East Asian immigrants might be the great saver of EU, they will make babies quickly to over populate the Muslims and at least we know they value education and will be a productive member of society after a generation.

It's real simple, send them home but also get the troops out of their home and stop balkanizing the middle east.

Ms No's picture

That plan doesn't include a solution to the fact that your entire system is infested with Zionists and you are now an occupied people.  The invasions are just a symptom, both our ME invasions and their invasions of us.  The symptoms will continue and magnify until people figure this out.  They got control of your currency in in the early 1900s and now they wiping their ass with your Constitution.

Nicely put.

You don't send a viral infection "home."

You ARE the home. You either excise it... or die. At this late point in it's progress, attempts at arresting further advance might prove fatal to the infected organism.

However... in the absence of any such efforts, fatality is guaranteed. Muzzies are symptom... not cause. Sionist kabbalism is eating the West.... and East... alive. Remove or die.

Perfect discription - Balkanizing.  Where these countries are headed.


"Bosnia and Herzegovina is a region that traces permanent human settlement back to the Neolithic age, during and after which it was populated by several Illyrian and Celticcivilizations. Culturally, politically, and socially, the country has a rich history, having been first settled by the Slavic peoples that populate the area today from the 6th through to the 9th centuries. In the 12th century the Banate of Bosnia was established, which evolved into the Kingdom of Bosnia in the 14th century, after which it was annexed into the Ottoman Empire, under whose rule it would remain from the mid-15th to the late 19th centuries. The Ottomans brought Islam to the region, and altered much of the cultural and social outlook of the country. This was followed by annexation into the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, which lasted up until World War I. In the interwar period, Bosnia was part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and after World War II, the country was granted full republic status in the newly formed Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Following the dissolution of Yugoslavia, the country proclaimed independence in 1992, which was followed by the Bosnian War, lasting until late 1995."

Joe A's picture

And Yugoslavia back in the 90s warned the West that what was happening in Bosnia, would happen to Western Europe in 20-30 years.

And that is why instead of helping Yugoslavia they destroyed them. Couldn't have a European Christian nation stand up to protect their culture and population now could they.

Read how Islam created the Janisariat.

They take boys from your society and train them.After their training the boys prove their indoctrination by slaughtering the families that bore them.

However, know this. Evil destroys itself. But it tales a long time. Vlad the Impaler was a rogue Janisariat.

The Zionists infested this country and now they are bringing in their weaponized Muzzies. Just ask Soros or any member of the big banking families.

Oh stop please. Only a demented hater could come up with nonsense like that.

Ms No's picture

Like Yuri Azminov said, dumb fucks like you will figure it out when they put you over the ditch.  At this rate it wont be long.  See: the Bolshevik slaughter of 30 million.  That's what happened last time brainless drones like yourself let them get this far.  Marxist indoctrination is permanent once it sets in.  They created that system of indoctrination that has filled the world with willing and intolerable slaves such as yourself.  

Who sits on your Supreme Court genius?  None of this would possible without their consent.  Who owns the world reserve currency?  Then there is everything else that has happened around you your entire life that you are blind to because your indoctrination, like constant wars in the ME that benefit Isreals agenda and that families that created Israel.  Conveniently, you can't point the finger at the culprit because you have been indoctrinated to protect those that prey on you as well as their weapons, which right now is Muslims.  Of course it's the ten millionth coincidence that Soros, a dual citizen, is bringing in the Muslims.

Nobody will be holding their breath waiting for you to figure this out.

Here's how the establishment thinking goes:

A German engineer is a goyim.

An illiterate Moroccan drug dealer is also a goyim.

They are the same, so what is all the fuss about?

Now STFU before we accuse you of being racist.

Your typical intelligent white Christian can't afford to reproduce anymore.  The real estate,  finance and immigration bubble has destroyed their jobs, while driving up the assets that they need to purchase in order to have a reasonable lifestyle.



kellys_eye's picture

With much talk of jobs being 'roboticised' and the future not needing (or being able to cope?) with surplus non-productive people perhaps the Western lack of child birth is a 'natural instinct'?

On the flip side I don't see how low IQ, uneducated and religiously backward immigrants can be seen to be a useful addition to any modern society.

The only way such immigrants could prove their worth would be in positions of menial and labour-intensive sectors that a collapse of society couold bring about.

Are we looking at preparations for the beginning of the end?

The knuckle draggers are nothing more then a means to keep a nice chain around our necks and suppress our ability to advance.  All excess resources are wasted on "welfare" and war.  Instead of be used to improve society. We should be working 4days a week now with a single bread winner with all this improved productivity but instead we are working more then ever. 

bloofer's picture

There's a lot of truth in what you say, but it's not entirely true. Another, and very big, part of the reason for relatively low birthrates among "intelligent white Christians" is a refusal to make the necessary sacrifices.

Those of us who were around in the 1950s remember a homelife that was distinctly without frills. I know of some younger people who've chosen to live very modestly, so that their incomes will be adequate for raising children.

In my area at least, it's really pretty easy to buy a very inexpensive home. There is a very real possibility for young people to buy a house for $20K-$50K and pay it off (on one professional salary) in three or four years. But couples with professional salaries often choose instead to use their two professional salaries to sign a $200K mortgage. They don't have to do that. The only reason they do it is because they don't want their peers to look down on them.

I know more poor people living in paid-off houses (while still in their 20s) than I do professionals. One of the boys who grew up in my small town recently purchased a house with cash for $9K. He grew up as one of our local poor, dumb kids. One young couple in my town bought a trailer on an acre of land for $2,500--with a payout. Another younger couple bought a trailer for $3,500.

People can afford kids, even with only one income, if they would ditch the notion that they must pay $200K for a big fancy house.

Not so. Jesus gave a stern warning and good advice to his followers that in no way suggest that they take on the life of an impoverished monk. “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a sack: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” Luke 22:36

An impoverished monk would have no need for a sword, a money bag and a backpack.  All kinds of vile deeds have been foisted on the populace in the name of religion.  Having said that I see no reference in the New Testament that suggests it is alright for Christians to rape ten year old girls or turn her parents into slaves simply because they are not Christians.

A clash of civilizations is going on in front of you.  I have personally witnessed the Islamification of Europe over the last four decades.  I thought it odd when I first stayed on Baker’s Street in London that the people carrying the luggage and cleaning out the motel room were Muslims.  That was in 1977.  The last time I was in Paris, you could not be around the Eiffel Tower when night fell.


Economic collapse is baked in the cake.  Social collapse will follow.  Europe is now having the first waves of its own Arab Spring.

Ms No's picture

Apparently you haven't been watched the Rothschild minion Soros.  Christianity did all kinds of terrible things back in the day, including burning those who agreed with them alive for two hundred years, but that is not what we are looking at now.  Christianity is a piker compared to banker globalism.  Your country is basically like those pathetic tarantulas that catch the cordyceps zombie fungus.
