Handing Europe over on a Silver Platter

Two years ago, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned German leaders not to confuse assimilation with integration and urged Turks in Germany to reject the latter. "I repeat ... assimilation is a crime against humanity", Erdogan had said in a speech before the parliament in Ankara. This did, of course, include the more than 800,000 Turks who have been granted German citizenship. Recently, Erdogan topped that by suggesting that Germany should support the setting up of Turkish high schools across the country.

Now he's up to the same trick again, this time in France, and he's not a bit bashful about it. After Germany, France is the main destination country for expatriate Turks, with an estimated half million in 2002. (Sorry, no more recent figures available without extensive search!)
L’appel d’Erdogan aux Turcs de France : devenez français pour mieux rester Turcs!
Erdogan's appeal to the Turks in France: become French to stay better Turks!

... le Premier ministre turc Recep Tayyip Erdogan a appelé ses compatriotes résidant en France à prendre la nationalité française afin de mieux faire progresser la «turquisation» de l’Europe !

Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan urged his compatriots residing in France to acquire French citizenship to be in a better position to promote the "Turkeyfication" of Europe. [France knows dual citizenship already.]

«Personne ne peut vous demander d’être assimilé. Pour moi, le fait de demander l’assimilation est un crime contre l’humanité. Personne ne peut vous dire : “Renonce à tes valeurs“.»

"Nobody is allowed to ask you to assimilate. For me, to ask somebody to assimilate is a crime against humankind. Nobody is allowed to ask you to renounce your values."
This leads, of course, to the question, what "values" Turks would have to renounce were they to become assimilated Europeans. Eating Döner, Köfte and Börek? Drinking Raki or Ayran? Belly dancing? The Turkish bath? Hardly. In fact, Germans (I can't speak for the French) adore most of it. Would they have to renounce universal "values", like truth- and faithfulness, respecting one's fellow man and valuing human life, justice, trust, gratefulness, empathy, tolerance or humility? Not really. So what "values" to renounce remain? What about an honour that forces a father or brother to kill a daughter or sister who has brought "shame" over a family? What about forced and consanguineous marriage? What about child brides? What about the "right" of the husband to beat his wife? What about the contempt for women's sexual integrity? What about phantasies of superiority over other peoples and religious denominations and the resulting feeling of entitlement? What about a perverted, violent macho cult? What about the license -- no, the DUTY -- to lie to "infidels"? What about the contempt for the rule of law?

Erdogan may be talking about "values". What he means is sharia.

Another thank you goes to Gudrun Eussner!

I remember this article from the Irish Examiner back in 2006.

“THE flag of Islam should be flown over Leinster House, an Islamic extremist said last night.

Speaking in Dublin before addressing a Trinity College debate, Anjem Choudray also reiterated controversial views that Muslim violence is justified in certain circumstances.

The British-born lawyer, 39, angered the Irish Government last year when he said that Ireland risked becoming a target for a 9/11 style attack because it allowed US war planes to refuel at Shannon Airport.

Mr Choudray said: “As a Muslim, I believe Islam is superior to every other way of life and that it can resolve all the social and economic problems that Ireland suffers from.

“And as a symbol of that, the flag of Islam should be flown over the Dáil.

“This is symbolic of the fact that all societies will be run better according to God’s law.””

It is obvious that if this type of activity continues unchecked, unfettered, Germany and Europe will become something they never have been: Islamic republic(s) Germanistan anyone?

The first question is, will Germany and the rest of Europe ever wake up to this fact or will they simply acquiesce to political correctness and go quietly into the night? The second question is, how long before they will reach a point of no return, five, ten or 15 years?

UR, I hadn't heard of that creep before. A country that welcomes somebody like that within its borders deserves to vanish from the face of the earth.

'gator I think that some day in the not so far future they will have to wall off Berlin and the Ruhrgebiet in a move similar to what happened in the Kosovo.

Notabene, that the Wiki-entry does mention the 19th century migration (mainly from Poland) but doesn't utter as much as a beep about Islam or Muslims.
