Anyone with a modest education would know that Islam arose in the 7th century and then proceeded to conquer and colonize the countries around Mediterranean which were mostly Christian. If the Islamic armies had not been stopped outside Vienna and later driven out of Spain, the map of Europe and the peoples of Europe would look a whole lot different. Islam is in essence a conquering colonising religion. They will not stop. The empirical evidence is overwhelming. Paul Collits takes us through the evidence below.
PAUL COLLITS, Newsletter, 6 DEC 2023
Two statements struck me this week.
One came from a Hamas leader, who said that 7 October was “just a rehearsal”. Which kind of makes Israel’s strategy of wiping out Hamas look pretty sensible. Proportional, blah, blah, blah.
The second comes from the classical historian Victor Davis Hanson:
The pro-Hamas crowd has little appreciation that colonizing Arab Muslims have one of history’s longest records of “settling” other countries far from their historic birthland.
Like Rotherham, United Kingdom, where the local teenage girls received undue attention from the incomers [widespread cases of grooming and sexual abuse], just to take a random example. Or Paris. Or Lakemba.
They “settled” and “colonized” the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine Middle East, Berber North Africa, and southern Spain. Millions of Middle Easterners migrated to—“settled?”—supposedly infidel European cities, where they often self-segregate and do not assimilate fully with their magnanimous hosts.
So, the Palestinians are both serial terrorists AND colonisers. But why pick on them? We are all colonisers. Every damned one of us, since Adam was a boy. We know that the British were. Post 1788 bleaters, typically located in settler colonial studies programs housed in our more prestigious universities, never, ever shut up about it.
Hanson also states:
Before Israel even retaliated, the mass murdering of Jews earned praise from the Middle East, the international hard Left, and especially the faculty and students of elite Western campuses. See The Unhinged Among Us.
Note the third cohort of Jew-haters mentioned here. The faculty and students of elite campuses. Three things have simultaneously occurred over half a century in the academy to turn it into a seed-bed of social revolution. First, there was the takeover of the humanities by post-modernist Marxism-Freudianism. Second, we massively increased the numbers going on to higher education. And third, we corporatised what were formerly communities of scholars, turning academics into employees and colonising – I use this word deliberately – the activity of teaching and learning with mini human resources dictatorships. The universities have become the fulcrums of the push to change society.
Well, if VDH [Victor Davis Hanson] is correct, it is true that Aborigines and Palestinians do have much in common. They are engaged in more or less aggressive re-colonisation (or de-colonisation) projects. Tent embassy founder Gary Foley recently said:
Aboriginal people have a deep understanding of what Palestinians are going through because we are going through the same. We stand with you to the end.
Intifada dreaming, as Timothy Cootes calls it. Cootes says:
Decolonisation, as activists and professors like to remind each other, is not a metaphor.: it must involve taking back of land and the reclamation of sovereignty, and one might have to be armed when doing so. See Intifada Dreaming.
