A recent video of Muslims and Danes quarreling in Denmark is revealing in more ways than one — especially for those who are considering the merits of the Great Replacement theory. In the video, one Muslim man can be heard yelling the following words to a Dane:
We have five children, you only have one or two. In 10 to 15 years there will be more Pakistanis than Danes in this country!... The Danes are five million, soon you'll be exterminated [or extinct?]. Look at the Swedes, look at the Norwegians, look at the Finns, man! We are multiples [of] millions, man!
The clamorous Muslim goes on to accuse Europeans of preferring bestiality to marriage, hence their lack of procreation. Soon other Muslims chime in. One says, "I just got married and will also have five children." Others start yelling about how the Danes' "mothers will be pregnant again," because their mothers and sisters are "whores" (who presumably sleep around with the Muslims). Others chant, "This isn't Denmark anymore, this is Paki-land" repeated several times, "We are taking over your country."
What's In a Name?
Several indicators certainly support this last assertion — beginning with what the main Muslim man in the recent video was hollering about: Muslims are certainly outbreeding Europeans. This is evident in the simple fact that, all throughout Western Europe, the name Muhammad is either one of the most popular names given to newborn baby boys, or, in some countries and major cities — the Netherlands, England, Berlin — the most popular name.
This is to say nothing of other Arabic/Muslim names, which are also topping the charts of newborn baby names. Even in the U.S., Muhammad recently made the list of top 10 baby names. "Arabic names are on the rise this year," the Baby Center explained, "with Muhammad and Aaliyah entering the top 10 and nudging Mason and Layla off."
All this may seem innocuous enough; after all, what's in a name? In reality, however, because more numbers equate more influence and power, many Muslims see their progeny as their contribution to the jihad — the "struggle" to make Islam supreme.
The Muslim Dream Come True
"We have 50 million Muslims in Europe," Muammar Gaddafi exaggerated back in 2006, before more realistically adding, "There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe — without swords, without guns, without conquest — will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades."
Ongoing reports and polls suggest this long cherished Muslim dream may not be so farfetched.
Thus, in the U.K., "Muslim hate fanatics plan to take over Britain by having more babies and forcing a population explosion," a report revealed back in 2008: "The swollen Muslim population would be enough to conquer Britain from inside."
One Pew report found that one out of every three people on earth is set to be a Muslim by 2070. Another Pew report says that the Muslim population of Europe could triple by 2050 — just when all those baby Muhammads are coming of age.
In Germany alone, nearly 20 percent of the population could be Muslim by 2050; considering that the average Muslim man is more zealous over his way of and purpose in (Islamic) life than the average German male, 20 percent may well be enough for an Islamic takeover of — or at least mass havoc in — Germany. Yet the report also finds that even "if all migration into Europe were to immediately and permanently stop" and due to significantly higher Muslim birthrates, Europe's Muslim population will still grow significantly, to about 36 million, almost double the current population.
The Baby Jihad
Incidentally, the baby jihad can be achieved with either Muslim or infidel women. As an example of the latter, a Muslim imam was videotaped saying that, because European men lack virility, their women seek fertility among Muslim men:
We will give them fertility! We will breed children with them, because we will conquer their countries! Whether you like it or not, you Germans, Americans, French, and Italians and all those akin to you [Western people]—take in the refugees. For soon we will call them [and their European born sons] in the name of the coming caliphate! And we will say to you, 'These are our sons.'
Similarly, the diary of Patrick Kabele, an African Muslim man who was living and arrested in Britain for trying to join the Islamic State — his primary motive being to purchase a nine-year-old sex slave — had references that only likeminded Muslims would understand: in an effort, as the aforementioned imam said, to use European women as incubators and "breed children with them," Kabele noted that he had been "seeding some women over here, UK white," adding, "I dont [sic] kiss anymore." (Unlike straightforward mating, kissing is deemed an intimate act, and Muslims, in keeping with the doctrine of al-wala' w'al-bara, must never be intimate with, certainly not love, non-Muslims — even when married to them — though they can have carnal relations with them.)
As discussed here, the same strategy is being used in the Muslim world against Christian minorities. Unlike in the West, however, where women freely give themselves to Muslims, Christian minorities are seized and seeded by Muslim men.
A More Zealous Faith
Even so, Muslim women remain the primary incubators for the jihad — and many of them see it as their obligation. A Christian Eritrean volunteer and translator who worked in migrant centers in Germany and was often assumed to be Muslim by the migrants, confessed last year that "Muslim migrants often confide in her and tell her about their dislike towards Christians," and that "a number of the Muslim migrants she has spoken to have revealed a hatred for Christians and are determined to destroy the religion." How they plan on doing this is telling: "Some women told me, 'We will multiply our numbers. We must have more children than the Christians because it's the only way we can destroy them here.'"
Not that many Western Europeans seem to care; some are even glad to see their own kind die off and be replaced by Muslims — such as Dr. Stefanie von Berg, who exulted before the German parliament: "Mrs. President, ladies and gentlemen. Our society will change. Our city will change radically. I hold that in 20, 30 years there will no longer be a [German] majority in our city. .... And I want to make it very clear, especially towards those right wingers: This is a good thing!"
From here one understands the true root of the immediate problem — and, as usual, it is not so much Muslims as it is perverse elements dispersed throughout the West. Having turned its back on its founding faith, a moribund culture — typified by nihilism, hedonism, cynicism, and, as such, dropping birth rates — simply has little worth living for and gives way to a more zealous one.
Surely those many historic Defenders of the West who bled rivers over the course of many centuries to keep invading Islam out of the West are turning in their grave.
