"...Some Westerners are getting worried that the modernistic views on the concept of religion in general, and Islam in particular, have come to naught.
The dominant view taught in modern social sciences is that religion will have a lesser effect on mankind, and will be reduced to marginality as science advances. This view seems to be confined only to Christianity which is becoming and more marginal in Europe, in marked contrast to the tendencies in the Islamic world. A look at the Islamic world will reveal that Islam, with different colors and tones, dominates every segment of society. It is the same in Indonesia, Palestine, Turkey and Sudan. Hence, both Western conservative circles and the local anti-religionists are fighting tooth and nail to prevent Islam from coming to the fore in this geography. This is because there’s increasing global interaction for Islam to be able to get its universal message across..."
Within these words is embedded a truth that is hard to escape. The secularists by diminishing the influence and rallying force of Chritianity have enhanced the opposing power of Islam. It seems that there are four possible outcomes:
- The problem will resolve itself and go away. Optimistic but unlikely in the face of a militant and aggressive Islam.
- A Christian Revival. Although possible, enough damage has been done and the unrelenting power of the secular Left make this a very difficult if not impossible process. It also assumes that a new Christian West would have to insist on a policy that would be far less tolerant of Islam in the West. There is no hint that public opinion would favor or tolerate statutory intolerance towards Islam at this time, but future events could change that quickly.
- Nationalistic Neo-fascism. This would work in that the demographic numbers favor the outright feasibility of expelling Muslims from the West. It is the most radical and was done effectively by the Serbs to the Muslims in Kosovo. It was reversed by Nato. This could happen if everything else failed and there was a demand for a "strong man on a horse."
- Europe Slowly succumbs to Islam. Laws that presently tolerate Islam evolve to laws that favor Islam. European Muslims reproduce faster and increase their influence and move to parity and on to superiority over indigenous Europeans. Emigration by indigenous Europeans, as is happening with whites in South Africa, accelerates the process until the process becomes unstoppable. This appears to be the most likely scenario, but not inevitable.
