Emigration Up, Birth Rate Down

Graying Germany Contemplates Demographic Time Bomb

No, there is nothing in the Koran that obliges the fast breeding soldiers of Allah to pay the pensions of aging EUro-dhimmies…..

Germany is already facing a demographic nightmare as birth rates fall despite a slew of family-friendly policies. Now, new statistics show that more people are leaving the country than immigrating — adding to concerns about the country’s shrinking population. more from SPIEGEL…

We’re too broke to be this stupid

STEYN:

Beleaguered taxpayers may finally put a stop to the sheer waste of government spending

Back in 2008, when I was fulminating against multiculturalism on a more or less weekly basis, a reader wrote to advise me to lighten up, on the grounds that “we’re rich enough to afford to be stupid.”

Two years later, we’re a lot less rich. In fact, many Western nations are, in any objective sense, insolvent. Hence last week’s column, on the EU’s decision to toss a trillion dollars into the great sucking maw of Greece’s public-sector kleptocracy. It no longer matters whether you’re intellectually in favour of European-style social democracy: simply as a practical matter, it’s unaffordable.  Mark Steyn has more>>

“Is Europe Turning Japanese?”

You Should Be So Lucky   [Mark Steyn]

I found this an arresting headline – “Is Europe Turning Japanese?” – but a goofy opening paragraph:

The dismal growth prospects of many European countries has raised an increasing number of questions about whether large parts of the continent will emulate Japan of the 1990s and endure a decade-long economic stagnation. On the face of it, a long-lasting Japan-style post-bubble slump with deflation seems a plausible outcome for a large part of the continent.

For a start, Europe’s would be a no-bubble slump – and, as for “decade-long economic stagnation”, you should be so lucky. Japan isn’t in a “slump”, it’s in long-term decline. In my book, I recalled the days of hysteria about how “the yellow peril was annexing America and pretty soon they’d be speaking Japanese down at the shopping mall”:

It didn’t happen and it’s never going to happen. In the Nineties, I tended to accept the experts’ line that Japan’s rising sun had gone into eclipse because its economywas riddled with protectionism, cronyism and inefficient special-interest groups. But so what? You could have said the same in the Sixties and Seventies, when the joint was jumping. The only real structural difference between Japan then and Japan now is that the yellow peril got a lot wrinklier. What happened in the 1990s was what Yamada Masahiro of Tokyo’s Gakugei University calls the first “low birth-rate recession”. It’s not the economy, stupid. It’s the stupidity, economists – the stupidity of thinking you can ignore demography.

'We will outbreed you with the bellies of our women'- update

                 Jihad by demographics

A Muslim who already has 6 kids has octuplets – in America!

“We will conquer your country with the bellies of our women…”

                    

LOS ANGELES, Jan 30, 2009 (AFP) – – The woman who gave birth to octuplets this week in California already had six children before undergoing fertility treatment for more, The Los Angeles Times reported on Friday.

The mother, Mrs Suleman, tried to keep her identity confidential. Why?

 “It’s going to be difficult,” Suleman said, adding that her daughter’s father was going back to Iraq, where neighbors told the paper said he had worked as a contractor, to help support the family.  More

*  Osama bin Laden’s father (pictured)  married 22 times and produced about 55 children; Osama bin Laden was born as the 17th child. In 1974, at the age of 17, bin Laden married his first wife.  According to CNN national security correspondent David Ensore, as of 2002 bin Laden had married four women and fathered roughly 25 or 26 children. (Imagine that: the two of them produced a brood of nearly one hundred!)

                

                  Bin Laden & Son

Houari Boumédienne, Algeria’s undisputed ruler until his death in 1978, said it clearly In 1974:

                    

 “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”

      

* Mullah Krekar, a notorious Islamic terrorist who is hauled up in Norway,  threatens the authorities with -you guessed it- terror attacks in case he is being deported, said it clearly and often:

“We’re the ones who will change you,” Krekar told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in his first interview since an uproar broke out over cartoons deemed offensive to Muslims.

* Norwegian court upholds expulsion of Mullah Krekar

* Norway to Mullah Krekar: “We give up” (he can’t be deported because he faces possible execution if he returns to Iraq) However, Mullah Krekar has been to Iraq at least 3 times to look after the Ansar-al Islam terror organization.

“Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes,” Krekar said. “Every western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries are producing 3.5 children.

* When Mark Steyn merely quoted Mullah Krekar’s ‘mosquitoes’ in his book ‘America Alone’- he was promptly vilified as a ‘racist’ and sued in a famous case that continues to this day.

Whether you think this rapid growth good or bad, the undeniable fact is that it will in the short term at least lead to even more stresses, not fewer:

The Muslim population in Britain has grown by more than 500,000 to 2.4 million in just four years, according to official research collated for The Times…

David Coleman, Professor of Demography at Oxford University, said: “The implications are very substantial. Some of the Muslim population, by no means all of them, are the least socially and economically integrated of any in the United Kingdom … and the one most associated with political dissatisfaction. 

                                    *     “Dissatisfaction” explained, here

UK: Muslim population rising 10 times faster than non-Muslim population

The implications of this are more substantial than that. Among the Muslims in Britain are a substantial number who believe that Sharia ought ultimately to be imposed upon that nation. The growing number of Muslims in the U.K. will make that call increasingly harder to ignore or resist.
