Who's Helped by the Western Escape Valve?

The West has been an escape valve for too long. The world's problems remain unsolved and will continue to remain unsolved as long as the West opens its doors to unrestricted migration. The solution to the ills of the Middle East and poverty/war-torn areas of the world is not migration into the West.

Words will never accurately describe the gut wrenching horror these people have and will live through. We should help. However, the solutions exist in the troubled regions and countries themselves. Those solutions aren’t easy to carry out and may take generations before we see results. The truth is the world lacks the will, stamina, and tenacity to take the steps necessary. These steps may involve armed combat to destroy and kill those causing the upheaval and turmoil. It’s an ugly reality many in the West refuse to see. We’ll also need to send humanitarian and real economic development aid (not loans or pop-up tents or ready-made meals). It’s much easier to wear a ribbon, say a prayer, stand in silence, and open the border. The issues are complex and the solutions more so. 

The question for those who advocate continued migration: is it fair to leave millions behind in despair, filth, poverty, oppression, and hopelessness? And if you answer no, how do we absorb the tens of millions of people into Europe, America, Australia, and New Zealand? This is the logical conclusion of their argument: either all who are oppressed or none. Why should only the strong fighting-aged men cross into Europe? Less than 30% of the people fleeing are women and children. Why must they remain behind to face rape, slavery, and torture? 

And who are the political elites and advocates of open migration to demand that citizens of the West sacrifice their heritage, their culture, their history, their community, their religion, their fortunes, their well-being, and their lives? Sweden has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa. The statistics are so high that it’s estimated that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped! The sad reality is that 77% of all rapes are committed by Muslim migrants. I could go on and on and on to show the steady disintegration of civil society where Muslim populations increase. 

Let's not forget Europe is facing a demographic crisis. Europeans are slowly disappearing as Europe shrinks in population. Why? Europeans have forgotten how to make babies. It is easier for Chancellor Merkel and other European elites to import a foreign population than to encourage their indigenous population to procreate. I was shocked to see so few children in Munich. And as the European population shrinks in real numbers and the Muslim population continues to rise exponentially, civil society will continue to fray and the outcome may be the demise of European civilization. 

Ponder the following quote from a respected Imam: “They have lost their fertility, so they look for fertility in our midst… We will give them fertility! We will breed children with them, because we shall conquer their countries!”
