Europe and Islam
in 1974, speaking at the UN, the paramount Algerian leader, Houari Boumedienne declared for the entire world to hear:
“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
How’s that for lack of ambiguity? That Boumedienne’s thunderous proclamation was ignored just goes to show the power of wishful thinking on the part of the self-deluded Westerners.
But while their hosts were muddled in their thinking, the Muslim leaders were anything but. They saw the gates of Europe thrown wide open before them as a long-awaited chance to turn the tables on the infidels, cherished by the Moslems ever since their expansion had been stopped cold at the walls of Vienna in 1683.
