Can the West be Saved? A Speech by Serge Trifkovic

The Gates of Vienna has published a speech by Serge Trikovic on the nature and the answer to the Islamic threat on western civilization. It is one of the most powerful and accurate descriptions of the problem that I have ever read. It is a must read -- go here now to read the whole speech.

The first book I ever read on Islam was Trifkovic's "The Sword of the Prophet." It really opened my eyes to the history and beliefs of Islam and its violent, totalitarian legacy.

Trifkovic spoke at the latest of a series of Counterjihad meetings, “Defending Civil Liberties in Europe,” which convened over the weekend in Vienna, Austria, and has just concluded. He made an advance copy of his speech to Gates of Vienna. Trifkovic takes the neoliberal elite to task and writes:

2. rapid demographic decline, especially in Europe, unparalleled in
3. rampant Third World (and in Europe, overwhelmingly Muslim)

lands. Before 1914, both the West and the Muslim world could define themselves
against each other in a cultural sense. The neoliberal elite insists on casting
aside any idea of a specifically “Western” geographic and cultural space that
should be protected from those who do not belong to it and have no rightful
claim to it. The elite insists that our countries belong to the whole

I repeat: this is a must read. I am moving Gates of Vienna to my "Must Reads" list and demoting Little Green Footballs to the blog roll.
