It’s not hard to forecast how we will deal with this new supposedly “pro-West” Muslim country. The flood of jihad fighters, war material and Saudi money into the region will be termed by our “see no evil” State Department as no more than an “expression of self-determination by the Balkan Islamic community." When reports of violence and forced conversions begin to filter out, the Western media will dismiss them as “reasonable actions taken out of context” or as merely “the ranting of pro-Israel Islamophobes.” This selling out of our Orthodox Christian cousins in the war with Islam is a tragedy. It stems from the misperception of the secularists in the West that somehow the Islamic jihad doesn’t apply to them since they don’t consider themselves Christian any longer, but post-Christian. Therefore, all that’s necessary is to dialogue, reach out to and understand the Islamic community’s need for recognition and legitimacy, and the threat will go away. To believe this one has to ignore a thousand years of history.
Also, being secular will be no salvation. One only has to look at Germany in the 1930s to see that not going to synagogue didn’t exempt anyone from that terror:
“The Nuremberg Laws did not identify a 'Jew' as someone with particular religious beliefs. Instead, the first amendment to the Nuremberg Laws defined anyone who had three or four Jewish grandparents as a Jew, regardless of whether that individual recognized himself or herself as a Jew or belonged to the Jewish religious community. Many Germans who had never practiced Judaism, or who had not done so for years, found themselves caught in the grip of Nazi terror. Even people with Jewish grandparents who had converted to Christianity could be defined as Jews.“
It is the same with the Islamic jihadis. Infidel non-believers have two choices only, either to convert or die. That would apply equally, or perhaps especially, to a New York Times editorialist who has no faith at all and lives on the East Side with his gay partner.
Kosovo is an Islamic toehold in Europe and the beginning of Eurabia. Allahu Akbar! Let the beheadings begin.
