It seems to me that Europe has all but failed when it comes to facing the threat of Islam. It almost seems to endorse Islam. Unfortunately, Europe has little or no desire to better understand the deep religious zeal that drives Islam or its history. It lives in a kind of dream world that doesn’t want to understand the threat Islam poses.
Even before the influx of Muslims into Europe, Europe was steadily moving away from religion towards a culture of nihilism in which life has little meaning beyond biological fitness. Also having an over skeptical attitude towards all religion in general and even the spiritual doesn’t help Europe to understand Islam.
With nihilism also comes an almost complete disbelief in the power of evil in which one lives contrary to one’s true nature. If, for example, man’s true nature is divine, then evil would be to live un-divinely desiring things that further the undivine life. Even on a human level, to live contrary to human life is also evil. One lives in an inhuman way by desiring—perhaps out of ignorance—things which make one more inhuman. Such inhuman people can be cruel and heartless or greedy and ruthless, for example.
Failing to understand evil, one is incapable of seeing the evil of Islam that it is neither divine nor human but rather a blind faith in what is undivine and inhuman. It is a tree that is said to bear good fruit and make one peaceful but, instead, the fruit causes one to become insane and violent.
In the U.S. there is still some organized resistance to the spread of Islam except among those who have subscribed to cultural Marxism which the old Soviet Union threw away only to be picked-up by the European intellectuals then shipped to American universities.
To rise up against Islam and hopefully to save Buddhism and Christianity and other faiths requires that we first see its evil which constitutes much of the history of Islam which in 1400 years managed to put some 270,000,000 humans to the sword including the fact that Islam was also the main supplier of slaves to Europe and the Americas.
