I was a bit shocked to read that French generals are warning of civil war if Islamism in France isn’t countered. But perhaps after the 2015 Bataclan massacre something like it was always looming.
Unthinkable? Maybe not. A lot of French people are thinking it.
But a civil war between the indigenous people of France and Islamists would surely spread rapidly to almost every other country in Europe. Most of them have the same problem. They are libertarian countries with illiberal Islamic minorities.
Is it even a civil war? It’s a war that has already raged between Europe civilisation and Islam for 1200 years, fought across Spain and France and Palestine. It’s just been in abeyance in recent years, while Europe was a global superpower. But now resurgent Islam poses the same threat again. It’s a cultural head-on collision. Co-existence is impossible.
The re-ignition of this long war will likely result in an Islamic holocaust in Europe, with mosques being demolished and Muslims expelled. It’s a war that will extend into the Middle East as it’s carried to the heart of Islam.
What else can happen?
Perhaps the French generals are scaremongering.
If they’re right, we’ll all start smoking again, and that’ll be the end of the antismoking bullies.
