A Fear of Danger

by Michael Devolin Monday, Feb. 19, 2007 at 3:40 AM

Magic City Morning Star's William Calhoun put it succinctly in his article of Jan 26/07 when he wrote, "I think you get the idea. We are under attack."

In his illuminating book America Alone, Mark Steyn writes, "Meanwhile, we fight the symptoms--the terror plots--but not the cause: the ideology. The self-imposed constraints of this war--legalistic, multilateral, politically correct--are clearer every day."

I agree with Mr. Steyn, that these are the constraints preventing any sort of meaningful counterpoise on the part of the Western governments and their functionaries against what is evidently Islam's intended political and demographic asphyxiation of our Judeo-Christian culture and ideals. Islam's apologists will tell you that there is no such intended asphyxiation of Western Judeo-Christian culture and ideals, and many of our naive pluralists believe them. But remember, they also told the same story to continental Europe, and now continental Europe is referred to by many of its detractors as Eurabia. Judeo-Christian culture in Western Europe has been euthanized by Islam. This cultural and religious extirpation is what the Italian beauty Oriana Fallaci was driving at in her book The Rage and the Pride, where she likens the desecration of Italian culture by Muslim immigrants to a beautiful women being raped. This Islamic euthanasia of Judeo-Christian culture has now transmogrified Europe, and its carcinogenic effect is beginning to gain momentum in North America, more so in Canada than in United States.

Mark Steyn points out in America Alone (and I concur with him

wholeheartedly) that United States is the world's last bastion against the insalubrious myth of multiculturalism. The truth about multiculturalism (and I should know, I'm Canadian) is that it only works for those who can whine and cry foul the loudest and who have no qualms about exploiting the kindness and benevolence of our Judeo-Christian style of governance. To those of us who wish to preserve our benevolent culture, which is manifestly antithetical to those varied yet similarly barbarous cultures imported from Islamic androcracies in the Middle East and beyond, such exploitation is disturbingly offensive. But as dear Oriana Fallaci points out, those of us who are bold enough to publicly condemn in equal counterpoise this abuse of what Ajai Sahni described as the West's "culture of accommodation" are verbally assaulted with, "Racist, racist!" As if.

Magic City Morning Star's William Calhoun put it succinctly in his article of Jan 26/07 when he wrote, "I think you get the idea. We are under attack."

And like any patriotic American, he was defending the sanctity of America's democracy and culture--as opposed to whatever politico-religious malignancy the enemies of America wish to impose upon its defeated citizenry. But I'm writing here of a wider perspective, which includes Canada. I mean, let's face it: if Canada ever becomes acculturated with Islam (as has the continent of Europe), with its ever attendant terrorism and expansionist ideals in tow, the United States could not very well sit back and quietly abide such a volatile imbroglio adjacent to its northern border. She would have to act.

I believe that now is the time for both Americans and Canadians (real Canadians, not the transnational types) to speak out in vehement tones about the preservation of our respective Western style traditions and cultures. I have no patience for ambiguous and insouciant vacillations on the subject. I have time only for those who, like Mr. Calhoun, are bold as a lion on the issue of perpetuating America's democracy, a democracy which, in turn, has always benefited in countless ways Canada's democracy. If, as Mark Steyn points out, this is America's moment, then, subsequently and logically, this could be Canada's moment too. Before it's too late (and I pray it's not too late for Canada), before our respective countries are overrun with the sullen and morose ambience of Islamic culture (or, in a strictly traditional sense, any culture not our own), may we inspire others to speak out in defence of our Judeo-Christian freedoms and mores.

"Let the fear of danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger."

--Francis Quarles, 1592-1644
