Historian Alain Besançon: Throughout History, Muslims Have Never Blended In With The Surrounding Population Of Non-Muslims
In every land, at every period, that Muslims have conquered, they have subjugated the non-Muslim population, and converted or expelled– quickly or gradually — the non-Muslims. They are at this moment finishing the job, killing or expelling or making life so unpleasant and insecure that many will leave, in Iraq and Syria, and the Christians of Lebanon have been much diminished, and had Al-Sisi not rescued them, or at least been doing the best he can, the Copts would be fleeing Egypt by the millions instead of, as now, by merely the hundreds of thousands.
The observations, with a long historical perspective, of the historian Alain Besançon, has been re-published here.
Excerpts from an interview (2008) with Alain Besançon, Associate and PhD in history, member of the Institute, member of the Académie des Sciences Morales et Politiques.
The story is still clear: the Muslim populations are not based in the surrounding population. It is a fact, a simple fact. The 20th century saw a purgation mixed areas. For example, there were many Christians in Turkey, Egypt etc … They are all gone. There were Muslims in Greece, the Balkans … They are all gone. There were French in North Africa, they are all gone …
Historically, it never lasted long. It was always more or less peaceful, very brutal as in Spain, or as in Turkey, by the expulsion of the foreign body. (By “foreign body” I suppose he means the indigenous people, the infidels).

Islamic State now attacking the Saudis
This is a very worrying development, although it might just make the Saudi stop the feeding of the jihadist beast:
The attack took place in the town of Qudeih in Qatif province, the official Saudi Press Agency said. Islamic State said on Twitter that it was responsible. The jihadist group has carried out attacks in the past in the region, where most Saudi Shiites live.
In his adopted home of Wollongong, [Jordanian immigrant] Abu Ayman — as his friends know the sheik — was a young man at peace. … Australia’s most senior Salafist cleric says if he knew then what he does now, he wouldn’t have come at all [to Australia].
RA: In a recent article you argue that just as it would be wrong to judge Christianity on the behaviour of some Christian extremist groups, such as the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda which quotes the Bible, it would be wrong to judge Islam on the violent behaviour of extremists.
RA: On what grounds could it be argued that Islam is a religion of peace?
RA: You have also said that the battle for the soul of Islam is earnestly underway.
RA: You have said that Islam is not the problem, but it has a problem, and part of this problem is Dhimmitude, and the attitude to women.
RA: What are the conditions which lead to terrorism and to what extent do you believe that the West is responsible for Islamic terrorism? I’m partly thinking, of course, of the invasion of Iraq.
RA: You were brought up as a Muslim but you became a Christian in High School, which would have been a difficult move to make. What was so powerful about Christianity that attracted you?
RA: And that brings us to the final question about the challenges of Christian-Muslim dialogue. Is the Muslim God the same as the Christian God?
Battle for the soul of Islam under way says scholar
Nope, Nope Nope’: Tony Abbott Says No Rohingya Refugees to Australia
Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, confirmed Thursday that none of the more than 8,000 Rohingya refugees caught in a weeks-long standoff at sea will be resettled in Australia. Overnight the governments of Indonesia and Malaysia agreed to give temporary shelter to the thousands of Rohingya Muslim migrants fleeing Burma and Bangladesh. And Gambia has offered to resettle all Rohingya refugees.
Some have been stranded at sea for weeks after Thai authorities closed a well-used trafficking route out of Burma and the people smugglers jumped ship and left their human cargo to starve. The US has indicated it is willing to take some of the refugees, and the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees has urged Australia to work with its neighbours in finding a solution.
But the prime minister has closed the door on suggestions some could be resettled in Australia: “Nope, nope, nope. I’m sorry. If you want to start a new life, you come through the front door, not through the back door.” (Published on 21 May 2015)
Yesterday Indonesia reminded Australia that, as a UN signatory to the refugee convention, we are obliged to assist 8,000 Rohingya stranded at sea. Tony Abbott has shrugged off the rebuke, saying “it would be utterly irresponsible [to] reward people for doing something so dangerous”
Even the Rohingya Muslims’ own native country of Bangladesh won’t take them back and have turned their boats around when they have tried to land there in the past. (See links below)
