L'avenir des Juifs est sombre dans une Europe qui s'islamise, prédit Bernard Lewis

"L'Islam pourrait devenir bientôt la force dominante dans une Europe qui, au nom du politiquement correct, a renoncé à lutter pour le contrôle de la culture et de la religion. ... L'avenir des communautés juives en Europe est sombre" (Prof. Bernard Lewis, 2007)

L'historien Bernard Lewis, grand spécialiste de l'Islam, vient de fêter ses 98 ans et enseigne toujours à la prestigieuse Université de Princeton.  En 2007, il avait accordé une interview au JPost dans laquelle prédisait que l'Islam allait devenir la "force dominante" en Europe. Dans une Europe en voie d'islamisation l'avenir des Juifs est sombre.  En effet, la tuerie dans le Musée juif à Bruxelles, l'appel à des nouveaux attentats et les réactions stéréotypées et convenues, sept ans après, confirment l'analyse de Bernard Lewis.

JPost (29/01/2007) Muslims 'about to take over Europe' Islam could soon be the dominant force in a Europe which, in the name of political correctness, has abdicated the battle for cultural and religious control, Prof. Bernard Lewis, the world-renowned Middle Eastern and Islamic scholar, said on Sunday.

The Muslims "seem to be about to take over Europe," Lewis said at a special briefing with the editorial staff of The Jerusalem Post. Asked what this meant for the continent's Jews, he responded, "The outlook for the Jewish communities of Europe is dim." Soon, he warned, the only pertinent question regarding Europe's future would be, "Will it be an Islamized Europe or Europeanized Islam?" The growing sway of Islam in Europe was of particular concern given the rising support within the Islamic world for extremist and terrorist movements, said Lewis.

Lewis, whose numerous books include the recent What Went Wrong?: The Clash Between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East, and The Crisis of Islam: Holy War and Unholy Terror, would set no timetable for this drastic shift in Europe, instead focusing on the process, which he said would be assisted by "immigration and democracy." Instead of fighting the threat, he elaborated, Europeans had given up. "Europeans are losing their own loyalties and their own self-confidence," he said. "They have no respect for their own culture." Europeans had "surrendered" on every issue with regard to Islam in a mood of "self-abasement," "political correctness" and "multi-culturalism," said Lewis, who was born in London to middle-class Jewish parents but has long lived in the United States.
