Fjordman is a great essayist from Norway. The Norwegian authorities detain Fjordman after Anders Breivik went on his mass murdering spree hoping to provoke a new European order that would be anti-immigrant – specifically Muslim immigrants. Fjordman’s essays were included in Breivik’s tome manuscript on the Internet that is a provocative plan to create his vision of a Christian-fascist State out of Europe to cleanse Muslims from Europe. Norwegian authorities detained Fjordman believing that his conspicuous essays in the Breivik manuscript implicated Fjordman in the Norwegian massacre. Indeed, Leftists in America and Europe took great glee in proclaiming anti-jihad writers as instigators of incitement that captured the psycho-mind of Anders Breivik. The microscope was intense that the pseudonym Fjordman led to the revelation of his actual name. Since the Muslims of Europe are more radicalized than in America, the name revelation has placed Fjordman in great danger.
Nevertheless, I am pleased to have discovered a Fjordman essay that I am going to cross post. You will be intrigued how Fjordman examines the rule of law by examining how Nordic-Germanic-Celtic law, Roman Law, Judeo-Christian Law, the ancient influence of the Mesopotamian Hammurabi Law somewhat syncretized in Europe. Then there is the throwing in of Islamic Sharia Law that is making a huge effort to join the syncretic nature of the rule of law that has evolved in the West.

Danny Jeffrey wrote a post about how immigrants from Muslim dominated nations are being allowed to immigrate to America in droves. There was a time I would not have a problem with this. After all the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island greets immigrants with:
‘Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!’ cries she
With silent lips. ‘Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!‘ (Excerpt: The New Colossus, Emma Lazarus – 1883)
Now days though I am not a big fan of immigrants from cultures that hate America. Islamic Culture is so opposite from the American values inculcated by the Founding Fathers and their concepts of Freedom, Liberty and Private Property. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are all about the individual living by their conscience as influenced by Christian Values. Islamic Supremacism definitely is not up to individual Liberty.
It does sound a bit on the Conspiracy Theory side; however I do believe there is an infiltration agenda among purist Muslims often called radical Islam. That agenda is infiltrating the West with Stealth Jihad to slowly control government and cultural infrastructure. Now there is a Conspiracy Theory, eh? The food supply thing may or may not be a part of this Muslim agenda I perceive to exist; however it sounds like it could be.

Geert Wilders of Netherlands has been facing persecution in his native land for years. The focus of the persecution is the Wilders message that Islam is evil and inimical to the Judeo-Christian culture that has inspired Western concepts of Freedom. This Freedom has found its greatest heights in America which is codified in the U.S. Constitution and can only be changed by a Constitutional Amendment or a rebellion against the Constitution.
In the Europe that is coalesced around the concept of a European Union Freedom is defined by relativity. Relative Freedom is diluted Freedom. Relative Freedom is freedom only as it is interpreted by the Central Government. Thus when the few Biblical Christians that still exist in Europe denounce Islam as a false religion or publically stand to a morality that belittles the lifestyles of homosexuality, Relative Freedom will those people jailed or fined or both as an illegal disruption to multicultural diversity.
Geert Wilders’ global message is that people must wake up to the threatening despotism that Islam represents against Western Culture. Recently Wilders was part of an expose Islam conference at a Church in Nashville, TN. Andrew Bostom brings this speech to the American Thinker for all to read what was spoken in Tennessee.
The Wilders speech definitely was not politically correct. Since there was no politically correct restraint in the speech, the first impression of Americans that love the heritage of Freedom in America, will sense the passion that Adolf Hitler expressed against Jews in the rise to power of Nazi Germany. Frankly I can almost hear or read the venom of Leftists who love multiculturalism yet hold an underlying hatred to the heritage of Judeo-Christianity.
Here is a less volatile excerpt from the Wilders speech:
Islam is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by islamic sharia law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including Christians.
The results can be seen in Europe.
Islam is an ideology of conquest. It uses two methods to achieve this goal: the first method is the sword. Do you know what figures on the flag of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a country where Christian churches are banned and Christians are not even allowed to wear a tiny crucifix? There is a huge sword on that flag, just below the Islamic creed. The message is clear. Without the sword islam would not have been able to spread its creed.
The second method is immigration. Islam’s founder Muhammad himself taught his followers how to conquer through immigration when they moved from Mecca to Medina. This phenomenon of conquest through immigration is called al-Hijra. My learned friend Sam Solomon has written a perfect book about it.
I am here to tell you that Geert Wilders is right on the money! The irony of our Western Culture is our tolerance for other cultures. Unfortunately tolerating Islam as it is espoused in its pure beginnings as preached by Mohammed is a cancer that will eat away the freedoms Western Culture has achieved over the decades from the days of one-man absolute monarchies through today’s rule of law that honors the rights of citizens rather than top to bottom despotism.
Leftist ideology regardless of all the rhetoric of power to the proletariat was a top to bottom central government rule that told citizens how to live and believe at the cost life or prison slavery. The same deception is inherent in Islamic ideology which has become theo-politicized via Sharia Law which also demands absolute adherence with punishment that results in second class citizenship (dhimmitude), prison for free speech assertions perceived as anti-Islamic, loss of limbs for theft or loss of life for insults to Islam, Mohammed or Allah.
When a Muslim attempts to tell you that enforcement of Sharia Law punishments longer occur in Islam, the only truth in that assertion is only valid in a Western nation that still requires the rule of law over Sharia Law. In Muslim nations Sharia Law punishments seemed to retreat in some nations that have attempted a modicum of secularism; however a resurgence of Sharia Law applications in all its harsh forms have made a strong comeback after the purist Islam influenced by what we in the West has called radical Islam. The fact is the very Muslims America and Europe have labeled as moderate are beginning to adopt Sharia Law according to the demands of reformist Muslims of Salafist, Wahhabi and Twelver Shi’ites.
A classic revival of Sharia Law in its pure form is exampled in Europe by Islamic enclaves that require all that enters the enclaves to respect the rules of Sharia Law or expect the potential an extra-legal enforcement beyond the touch of a European nation’s rule of law.
Dear God in Heaven people, please listen-up! Even if it goes against our nature of tolerance to foreign cultures we need to make laws that illegalize aspects of a religion or an ideology that has an agenda to overcome Constitutional Law, especially in the United States of America.

America, take a look at Europe. There is unrest over budget crunches that have forced Leftist oriented governments to reduce their entitlement picture. In France they are rioting in the streets over adding two years to official age of retirement. Check it out: That retirement age is moving from sixty to sixty-two. Imagine if the French had a more capitalistic system like America. The current retirement age in America is 65. Soon the retirement age will be 67. If the French are rioting in the streets over a 62 year old retirement; dear God in Heaven, imagine what they would in the France if retirement was extended to 67!
Everywhere in Western Europe the presence of Islamic immigrants who are increasingly tapping into the Salafi-style of Islam is causing a culture clash. Unfortunately for Europe the immigrants have an incredibly higher birthrate than the Europeans. That means more and more success for Islamic culture to supersede Western Culture all because of the idiocy of placing a premium on multicultural diversity rather than a plurality with assimilation.
I just viewed an awesome blog post from Guy Milliere relating to the disintegration of European culture and how the American Left is opening the same door of cultural destruction in America.
