Europe surrenders and Demands We Do the Same

On similar lines to the fjordman article bellow, the article at the link above (hat tip: Rantburg) discuses how Europeans loss of their Christian faith is causing Europe to abandon itself to Islam. Paul Belien writes that German author Hernryk M. Broder is encouraging young Europeans to leave Europe rather than loose their freedom. But the article points out that Europeans are unwilling to raise their birthrates or to risk death in war fighting for freedom. Instead they only want to enjoy freedom. And why?

“As Tom Bethell wrote in this month’s American Spectator: “Just at the most basic level of demography the secular-humanist option is not working.” But there is more to it than the fact that non-religious people tend not to have as many children as religious people, because many of them prefer to “enjoy” freedom rather than renounce it for the sake of children. Secularists, it seems to me, are also less keen on fighting. Since they do not believe in an afterlife, this life is the only thing they have to lose. Hence they will rather accept submission than fight. Like the German feminist Broder referred to, they prefer to be raped than to resist.
“If faith collapses, civilization goes with it,” says Bethell. That is the real cause of the closing of civilization in Europe. Islamization is simply the consequence. The very word Islam means “submission” and the secularists have submitted already. Many Europeans have already become Muslims, though they do not realize it or do not want to admit it.”

But to make matters worse, they try to stop others from defending truth and liberty too:

“People who are not prepared to resist and are eager to submit, hate others who do not want to submit and are prepared to fight. They hate them because they are afraid that the latter will endanger their lives as well. In their view everyone must submit.
This is why they have come to hate Israel and America so much . . .”
