Video: Bat Ye'or on the Collapse of Western Civilization
Here's the first part of a two-part video featuring Bat Ye'or in conversation with Christine Tasin, a major contributor to Riposte Laique and founder of Résistance Républicaine.
Nothing really new, but always worth repeating. The video is twenty-minutes long and I am presenting here what amounts to a very rough draft, but I think the essential is clear. If need be I will make changes, and any suggestions from readers will be welcome. There will be a second part posted in a few days.
After the greetings, Christine asks her to explain Eurabia:
I didn't invent the term. It was the title of a journal that foreshadowed the situation today. Eurabia is an ideology that seeks to promote the fusion of the two shores of the Mediterranean and to eradicate the identity of the European peoples. Eurabia is two combats. One is the desire of the European Union to extend its power. When I speak of the European Union, I mean a whole system of functionaries who aim to abolish the European nations in order to construct a European Empire. This is an absurdity because this empire contains several languages, several histories, several identities, and you cannot destroy that. It is too rich too important,it would be a terrible impoverishment. This vision of the European Union is part of the globalist agenda to replace the nation-states with a world government that would be the United Nations, an international center that would promulgate laws for the entire planet. This is very clear from the speeches of Javier Solana, from his desire to strengthen the U.N. by weakening the European States. This is part of a humanist aspect of Communism: they want to recreate a fraternal humanity, without borders, without divisions, subject to the same laws, in which everyone is equal, everyone is kind and gentle, and in which the differences between the peoples would disappear. It's a little like what the Soviet Union wanted to do.
That is one aspect of Eurabia. The other aspect is the union with the Arab world, the creation of a Mediterranean civilization, which is a step towards the larger phase of globalization. This globalization will take place as the civilization continues to expand, leaving the domaine of nation-states, and taking in more and more different peoples, uniting with other continents and peoples. This is an intermediate step towards a supranational state that would mean the destruction of Europe in order to bring in the other nations. (continue reading...)
