Russian novelist imagines Europe under Sharia

Dr. Jack Wheeler -- one of the most well-connected and intelligent minds in the conservative movement -- writes on his website today of a novel that is causing waves in Russia. Elena Chudinova's new book, The Mosque of Notre Dame de Paris, is set in France in 2040 and tells of how a Muslim majority voted itself into power and established Sharia as the official law of the nation. Jack writes:

Chudinova takes the ongoing transformation of Europe into Eurabia – the Moslemification of Europe – seriously... The Moslem immigrant children who comprised 40-50% of the population under 20 in many French cities in 2005 have grown up, have voted themselves into power, established Islam as the state religion in France, imposed strict Sharia Islamic law upon all French people, and converted the cathedral of Notre Dame into a mosque. The only Christians who are left are forced to live in ghettos like Jews in pre-World War II Warsaw. The novel focuses upon an initially small Christian resistance movement that refuses to live according to Sharia laws and decides to fight back – violently.

It sounds like a fascinating read; let's hope it gets translated soon.

In the meantime, do yourself a favor and visit Jack's To The Point website. It charges a small subscription but it's worth it. It has some of the best commentary on the web, and Jack is always posting intel from his many sources that you won't find elsewhere. (For example, how India's spy agency is using the devastating earthquake in Pakistan to fight Al Qaeda.)

I have a serious question: While I'm quite sure that your physical position of having your lips permanently affixed to Bush's ass impairs your vision, I'm wondering, do your lips ever get tired?

"World Ahead Publishing". That's hilarous. The world ahead... er, your little world. One that no one else cares about. And it is important that you know that books such as yours are not taken seriously by the world OUTSIDE the US. Move on idiots. Evolve. EVOLVE! It's people like you that hold the rest of us back.

Ah, the anonymous liberal flame. As witty as it is courageous.

No wonder this country has not elected a self-proclaimed "liberal" president since 1964 and only 15-20% of the electorate self-identifies as "liberal" (compared to 35-40% for "conservative").

Posts like the two from above are not going to win the contest of ideas, folks.

Mr. Jackson, I hate to tell you this, but if you start a blog that allows comments, you allow your critical visitors to post anything they want to, no matter how insulting it is. It’s very funny how you proclaim these past two individuals as “liberals” without even knowing them (which is kind of hard, considering how they are anonymous). I must agree with World Ahead on that article; any society ruled on the basis of religious faith goes to hell in a hand basket.

Hi, juliep123,

If you browse around on the blog a little, you'll see that critical visitors are indeed allowed to post anything they want to -- no one is taking their posts down or in any way restricting them. But if libs want to post statements that include high brow phrases such as "affixed to Bush's ass" or "Evolve. EVOLVE!" I do reserve the right to chide them. (Think! THINK!)

Frankly, I'd love for liberals to start posting intelligent comments -- heck, I'd settle for "Bush lies so we throw pies" * -- but evidence suggests they prefer the anonymous flame.

This goes back to my point on my prior post. There's a reason that liberals are losing the contest of ideas. They can't articulate a sound vision for the country that earns them the trust of the American people, and hence the people have rejected liberalism as a political philosophy. Instead of revisiting the reasons for that loss of faith (as conservatives did during their post-FDR sojourn in the wilderness), libs evidently are unable to "Evolve! EVOLVE!"
