Migrants to the West #6

Islam and migrants have been a reality in Europe for centuries. As long as the continent of Europe doesn’t approach segments which are different from the majority with tolerance, particularly in regards to religion, an occurrence of new inquisitions and Holocausts, as well as incidents evoking Srebrenica, are probable.”

said President Abdullah Gül on the 15th of April 2013, also giving a warning to the people of Europe:

European countries will face new humanitarian tragedies leading to mass killings of people if they continue in their failure to embrace tolerance toward different cultures and religions.”

His strongly worded remarks came as he delivered a keynote speech at the opening of a two-day international symposium on ‘Migration, Islam and Multiculturality in Europe’ arranged by Hacettepe University’s Migration and Politics Research Center.

In Europe we see that many citizens do have a distorted image of other beliefs than their own. The Islam got a twisted image because of the continuous religious conflicts and terrorism coverage in the visual media. Facing economical problems the Muslim immigrants are considered a stand in the way. Their belief is than, because it is obviously different, considered the most annoying difference and therefore unwanted or taken as a sign of not willing to integrate.

The band of brotherhood and collectivism is also something that frightens many. Some consider that “the genius of Western societies is that individualism allows the construction of civil societies where kinship ties are much less important. This is  why Syria and  Iraq cannot construct civil societies but are riven by kinship groups that are in constant conflict.” (Muslims dominate the natives on the streets of Norway, Kevin MacDonald)

They do want to see collectivism as very effective in competition against individualists within a society and look with jealousy to the success of Judaism as a collectivist culture in relatively atomized Western societies. Ethnic networking by Jews is very effective in the intellectual world (the theme of The Culture of Critique) and all the other  centres  of power throughout the West.

Highly disciplined, cooperative groups are able to outcompete individualist strategies. Indeed, an important thread in the following chapters is that Jewish intellectuals have formed highly cohesive groups whose influence to a great extent derives from the solidarity and cohesiveness of the group. Intellectual activity is like any other human endeavor: Cohesive groups outcompete individualist strategies. (CofC, Chapter 1, p.5)

The togetherness and the family feeling, lacking by many Westerners is felt as a threat to the individualistic attitude of the West European population.  The collectivists are felt to become dominant, many of the individualists accept their subordination and begin to look up to the collectivists, just as so many Whites throughout the West admire Jews as a dominant group. As noted in The Culture of Critique:

Once Jews had attained intellectual predominance, it is not surprising that gentiles would be attracted to Jewish intellectuals as members of a socially dominant and prestigious group and as dispensers of valued resources. Such a perspective fits well with an evolutionary perspective on group dynamics: Gentiles negotiating the intellectual status hierarchy would be attracted to the characteristics of the most dominant members of the hierarchy, especially if they viewed the hierarchy as permeable. Writer William Barrett, a gentile editor of Partisan Review, describes his “awe and admiration” of the New York Intellectuals (a group of predominantly Jewish intellectuals discussed in Chapter 6) early in his career. “They were beings invested in my eyes with a strange and mysterious glamour” (in Cooney 1986, 227). (previous link, p. 3)

Lots of reactions today seem to be very similar to the ones of the 1930s. Several people want to see their race a s superior and do find Europe is not protecting their own natives. The whites cannot get together put aside petty differences and join together in unity against the ‘tide of evil’, Africans, Muslims, Hispicanics etc..  In the 1930s many thought the Jews were in charge and had all the money. Today there  are again people who have the impression that not only Jews are in charge so their will be done, but that we now also face the Muslims who want to dictate their Sharia Laws to us.

Racism and a lack of tolerance of different cultures and lifestyles are some of the chronic diseases in Western societies, Gül said, drawing attention to the increase in support for political parties which portray migrants as the main reason for societal problems in European countries such as safety, unemployment, crime and poverty.

We should be careful when we look how other countries want to react on certain situations. We should dare to take our own conclusions. Every state or country is responsible for producing its own authentic resolutions and every democratic country should call for the right of everybody to have their own religion and should ask from every citizen to show respect for multiculturalism.

Gül also said:

“Racism and intolerance toward different cultures and lifestyles are unfortunately one of the most chronic diseases. Although this disease can be taken under control, it arises again, particularly during times of economic crisis,”

The Turkish president also emphasized the importance he attaches to the Law on Foreigners and International Protection which was approved by Parliament on April 4 in a bid to harmonize Turkey’s regulations on the issue with those of the EU. Gül approved the law on April 10, allowing it to go into force on April 11 after being published in the Official Gazette.

  • Time to dispel migrant myths (thejc.com)
    In the heated debate about immigration, which seems to intensify daily and has by no means been settled by the recommendations in the Queen’s Speech last week, the Jewish community can look back with pride at the number of Jewish migrants who came to Britain and made an enormous contribution to this country.
    +
    we must beware of simplistic analysis: that we were the good and deserving migrants and those arriving today are not. And we would do well to remember that, like today’s migrants, we were the targets of a hostile press. Even the most cursory look at the headlines that greeted the arrival of Jewish refugees in the 1880s and before the Second World War demonstrates this:”These immigrants have flooded the labour market with cheap labour to such an extent to reduce thousands of native workers to the verge of destitution,” complained the Manchester City News in May 1888.

    Or the Sunday Express, in June 1938: “But just now there is a big influx of foreign Jews into Britain. They are overrunning the country. They are trying to enter the medical profession in great numbers. Worst of all, many of them are holding themselves out to the public as psychoanalysts”.

    The headlines that portrayed us as people who were swamping the country, taking jobs away from the indigenous population and not wanting to integrate are paralleled today with monotonous regularity.

    This constant drip of sensationalism leads to a widespread perception that Britain is now swamped by migrants. But the cross-party Migration Matters Trust, using Office for National Statistics data, tells a different story. It finds that migrants make up about one in 10 of the population, lower than Australia, the US or Germany and that almost 90 per cent of new jobs go to British nationals.

    “The only way to remove the root of intolerance in Turkey is to remove Islam, but this isn’t humanly possible with a population that is at least 96% Muslim.  Fortunately, there is Someone who can make a difference. And He’s coming soon …”

    Turkey, Key US Ally, Added to List of Worst Religious Freedom Offenders – “Yes, you’ve read that right.  The country that has become ‘a useful model for new Arab regimes‘ has now been added to the list of worst religious freedom offenders in the world. Alongside Egypt who now vows to one day kill all Jews, this is a nation that the Obama Administration is now actively arming, a nation that now makes verbal attacks against Israel ‘a central feature‘ of its political discourse.

    Secular Opposition Laments the Rise of Islamism in Turkish Government and Society, Christians Under Increasing Pressure – “In a Turkey with a secular constitution and a government and population of the Muslim faith, the social-democrat opposition has denounced an attack by the government and the presidency on the tradition of Ataturk festivities, symbol of the state’s secular nature. The alarm has come on a day in which a daily paper provided details on a report by the Association of Protestant Christian Churches noting numerous ‘attacks’ on Christian communities.” Read more.
  • Derrida, the Jews and the Battle for Europe (chechar.wordpress.com)
    In view of the results of the present state of things, we can say with confidence that much of the scholarly work of the contemporary Jewish “intelligentsia” has been, and is, the destruction (“deconstruction,” if you prefer) of our culture. From all angles. They have introduced displeasure, mistrust, suspicion, discomfort throughout our culture in our painting, our music, our literature, our philosophy, our law, our traditions, all of our history since Marx… They poison the sources of our knowledge as harpies defile, desecrate, bumble, dirty, pollute our spiritual food.

    The European seeks the good of his health; wants to make it better, stronger, more confident; wants to establish it on new foundations and purest symbolism. Nietzsche’s intention is that the European be exceeded, that he leaves behind all the ideological and spiritual, Platonic and Judeo-messianic period. A symbolic change, a change of “heaven,” a complete regeneration, a new dawn, a return perhaps. Marx (Jewish strategy) seeks the destruction of our worlds; Nietzsche seeks correction, transformation, renewal.
  • Turkey Warns Europe Of New “Holocaust” If They Don’t Accept Islam… (themuslimissue.wordpress.com)
    While imprisoning pianist Fazil Say for denigrating religion through comments he made on Twitter and handed down a 10-month suspended prison sentence, forbidding churches to operate in their country, and converting the historical cathedral Hagia Sophia into a mosque to eradicate signs of Christianity completely, Turkey accuses Europe of intolerance and demands tolerance for Muslims in the West… What a farce.
  • Islamophobia is as widespread and acceptable as anti-Semitism used to be (mondoweiss.net)
    In the morning was the computer technician and in the afternoon was the dentist, and it was Islamophobia a.m. and p.m.

    Back when Jews were persecuted, the Jewish community and friends of Jews had to organize. The American Jewish Committee got started after the pogroms. The ADL started because of the Leo Frank lynching. The New York Times crusaded for Leo Frank, and the Methodist bishop in Atlanta refused to lift a finger to help: “I have been annoyed by letters from all over the country trying to draw me into the case on behalf of Mr. Frank.” There was a real reason for the organizations fighting anti-Semitism. They changed American attitudes, and government policy too. People of conscience have to do the same thing now for our Muslim brothers and sisters—kill the bigotry, fight the evil policies, show that Muslims are just part of the human family.
  • Greece: Farmer shoots 30 unpaid Bangladeshi migrant workers when they demand pay (revolutionaryfrontlines.wordpress.com)
    About 30 migrant workers have been injured in a shooting on a strawberry farm in Greece after requesting salaries that had not been paid.

    The migrants – mainly from Bangladesh – were shot at by at least one farm supervisor, in a Peloponnesian village in southern Greece.

  • Fruit-picking firms ‘will need migrant workers to survive’ (standard.co.uk)

    Many of Britain’s fruit-picking businesses could close unless a new wave of migrant workers from outside Europe is allowed into the country, government advisers warned today.

    In a report to Theresa May, the Home Office’s Migration Advisory Committee said that migrants from countries such as Ukraine could be needed to prevent home-grown fruit prices rising so high that supermarkets opt for imports. That could lead to historic orchards and fruit fields becoming arable.

  • Hundreds of Burmese Migrants Arrested in West Thailand (irrawaddy.org)
    The Council of Europe – the main European human rights watchdog – issued a report this week detailing abuse against migrants in Greece.

    The report warned of a growing wave of racist violence, stating that “democracy is at risk”. It highlighted the role of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party.
