"Eurabia is not Europe. it is its enemy."
............the transformation of Europe into "Eurabia," a cultural and political appendage of the Arab/Muslim world. Eurabia is fundamentally anti-Christian, anti-Western, anti-American, and antisemitic, while striving for Israel's disappearance and the vilification and isolation of America. The institution responsible for this transformation, and that continues to propagate its ideological message, is the Euro-Arab Dialogue, developed by European and Arab politicians and intellectuals over the past thirty years.

the Destruction of the West within itself
I will put what my predecessor said today in a very lively precise way, I will put it in a Framework.
I want to say first that the statistics of current Judeophobia in Europe is very different from what we know from the past times.
If I were to define it, without fear of words I would call it a Euro Arab Political and Theological Replacement Doctrine of Genocidal character who propose to replace the state of Israel by Palestine.
Certainly, the European State have never ceased to assure Israel that it is safe and recognise borders as if the 1949 Armistice Lines were safe, and as if the European Community have not funded and supported Arafat and the PLO and legitimise
them since 1974.
The aim of the European was of course peace, but peace with Arafat since Palestinian territories had already struck Europe at the end of the 1960s and peace with Arafat meant probably without Israel.
It is Europe that has justified and sanctified the Palestinian cause that is the vilification of
Israel, in other words the European Community used an Orwellian doublespeak, reminiscent of the Auschwitz saying: "work Makes Free"
In fact the proposals of the European Community/Arab Policy, followed later by the
European Union was to delegitimise Israel and neutralise its self defense, especially since the last five years and through ensightment to hate and defamation.
However, one can observe some improvements after several international conferences on anti-Semitism and the publicity given, not only in the USA but to the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe.
Nonetheless, one should be wary of other optimism for anti-Semitism is closely linked to the strategic political and economical contingency of Europe's Arab and Muslim policies.
So, whatever else we do, we wont have an impact on Europe anti-Semitists, because this is linked to the European relationship with the Muslim world.
It is also linked to the change, the demographic pattern of Europe’s new Arab and Muslim immigration and to the disintegration of Europe’s identity.
As we see now, Europe is desperately looking for instance to continue funding the Palestinians whom they have always championed in spite of their vote for Hamas.
Although, there are, of course, European anti-Semites, present Judeophobia is not really a
phenomenon of persons nor of marginal parties.
However, it is a political and cultural strategy that embraces all countries of the European Union. It is integrated into the ideology of this strategy, its institution, network and cogs and it is worked out at the highest level of decision making and implementation.
This new Judeophobia is not aimed at individual Jews, other populations that since the Shoah has become marginal and insignificant on demographic and political levels. It is expressed through an implacable and disdainful hate for the State of Israel for what it represents and stands for and by the glorification of Palestinianism which is an
ideology for the elimination of the Jews as in former days of Nazism.
This position of the European Union is anonymous, cynical, secretive and deceitful. In other words, one does not express anti-Jewish racism, one celebrates by leftism and jihadist ideology.
There is no point wasting ones money and ones energy in trying to prove that Israel tries to
exist in the 21st century or to imagine that this policy stems from ignorance for it is a coldly calculated program.
You had anti-Israel strategy initiated in the 1970s, that will not change. It will continue. It
is too late to change. It will continue to its conclusion this destruction of Europe. For there,
finally, is the paradox and the pitfall.
This new Judeophobia is in fact inseparable from Europe’s long term policy of vision with the Arab world, which includes the mass immigration from Muslim countries, with a demographic, sociological, political and religious changes, that come with it.
Such changes are not a result of chance, this is a planned and intended strategy whose unfolding can be followed in the text of the numerous Europe-Arab conferences.
I have called this transformation of Europe, Eurabia. Eurabia is not Europe, it is its enemy,
it does not represent the majority of Europeans, nor all its Politicians.
When I speak of Eurabia, I refer to an ideology, like one would speak of Communism, of Socialism. It is an ideology which is supported by the main European Politicians.
It is a strategy, a policy and a culture, whose nerve centre, a way of working are exemplified by the Anna Lind Foundation in Alexandria, linked to the Swedish Consulate.
Although this policy can be traced back to the 19th century in France, it was renewed in the 1960s by Charles de Gaulle on the European side - on the French side, and the Arab side by the Hajj Al-min Husseini, former Mufti of Jerusalem, whom de Gaulle saved from the Nuremburg Trial.
(2/3) - Bat Yeor: New Euro-Arab Judeophobia Bears the Destruction of the West within itself
After the Kippur War, this view, this policy and ideology, promoted an alliance between the European Community and the Arab world. A parity at every level of the European Community, regionally that these, for each European member state of the EU community and internationally, as a European Common Foreign and Security Policy.
This vision aimed to create a strategic Euro-Arab world, a Mediterranean world, hostile of course to Israel, supporting Arafat and the PLO and totally opposed to America.
In order to create a second foreign poll power in international policy. Without much difficulty France was able to carry along the rest of Europe, now the 9 countries of the EC, into its program from 1973 after the Arab oil embargo and after Palestinian terrorism attacked European cities.
They blocked over a period of 3 decades, the Arabian ideology and strategy, created a Euro-Arab framework between the EU bodies and its member states on one hand, and an Arabic countries on the other hand.
This framework is called the Euro-Arab dialogue. It covers the whole Euro-Arab relationship in the strategy, policy, business, social and human affairs, cultural and media, implementing bonds, associations, solidarity, particularly with the Palestinians, covenants, common projects with the help of the Human Commission and its numerous instruments and funding.
Both the policy and this structure are quite unknown to ordinary Europeans. I can not go into the details here because I explained this strategy in my book, Eurabia, but this ideology is explained in numerous dialogue and EU documents and it is not some invention of my own or some ridiculous conspiracy that I have invented. It is very well expressed, first of all here, in this little booklet. It is a Review that has appeared in 1975. You can see the word EURABIA, which I have not invented. In this review, this vision of the future of Europe and other countries are very well described.
Then you can see here in this very important document which was presented to Hamid Karzai in October 2003. You can read the whole program of this Mediterranean fusion and you can find it on the internet with the map which shows Europe down in the South and the Arab countries dominating Europe in the North.
So, this strategy is also explained in a document called the European Common Strategy in the Mediterranean Region which was adopted by the European Council on 19th June 2000 and was published months later in the Official Journal of the European Communities.
In the 1970s the European Communities and Arabic went into this association with different but converging aims.
Anti-Semitism and Anti-Americanism always exists in Europe, in the communist parties, in the fascist and the Nazi parties which represents quite a big population and this population, this historical background provided a favourable ground for anti-Semitic and anti-American Arab propaganda.
So these forces forged this alliance with the Arab world. Europe thought that by aligning itself with the EU Community so that this alliance, this commotion of the Palestinians, would protect Europe from Palestinian terrorism, would guarantee its own needs, open Arab market and Arab Jihadist against Israel and the USA, and that the internationalisation of the Palestinian cause would provoke Israel to wither away in a heap of infamy.
The twining of Judeophobia and anti-Americanism fitted well into this strategy of the Euro-Arab alliance and is one of its pillars, of course, the second one is the destruction of the State of Israel, but this is just a smokescreen hiding the islamisation of Christian theology and the subversion of Western values.
From that point of view the countries of the Arabic and Islamic Conference and EU alliance,
they saw it as a way to divide the West, to weaken America and Europe, to destroy Israel, to achieve a technological parity with Europe and through the Mediterranean partnership, to set up a vast Euro-Arab by promoting a political, economical, theological cultural zone.
In this way, through particularly Jihadism and Immigration, Islam and Arab cultures would be introduced into Europe as a forced islamisation of Europe, they would thereby, through the combined efforts of democracy, terrorist pressure and oil, we will become a continent bestowed(?) to Islam, worse than what it is now.
So, in this context, particularly Jihadism, is in fact a crucial dimension of the Euro-Arab
Since 1975 we see the text of the Euro-Arab meetings and of the EU, mentioning the agreements linking Europe to the Arab world and maintaining the particular character and culture of the Arab and Muslim immigrants. This was a very important element and accepting that the government of Arab and Muslim centres to keep the Arab and Islamic
identity within Europe.
It is within the context of this particular Jihadism that one must place the culture of Jihad
with it Judeophobia, anti-American and anti-Western character.
Jihadism thus becomes the instrument for the subversion of Western thought, aim at imposing on it, Islamic historical back section??? and thinking, like the negation of the historical Jihad which is replaced by a vision of a defensive harder than the aggressive war, to the denying of Dhimmitude presented as the paragon of good government and tolerance of Arabs and Muslims and the justification of Islamic terrorism based on a victimological back section of Muslim, the victims of the Christian West and to date of Israel, both
bonded together in this essentialist vision of evil.
(3/3) - Bat Yeor: New Euro-Arab Judeophobia Bears
the Destruction of the West within itself
I would like to say a few words on themes of this cultural Jihad which is waged in all Academia in the West. Its aim is to replace Israel by Palestine on a cultural and theological level, by negating the existence of Judeo Christianity, therefore the spiritual strength of Europe.
Its promotion of the islamisation of Christian theology through the Muslim Palestinian Jesus, which replaced the Jewish Jesus. The return of a Christian replacement theology, which we heard yesterday Mrs....explaining very well to us, and through this Christian replacement theology, Palestine replaces of course, Israel.
Also, it blocks the theme of the Crucifixion of Palestine by Israel. By Israel’s home in blood and sin and the transfer of Jewish history to the Palestinians and the anilification of Israel. So this is the cultural Jihad fought in every Academia
Now to conclude I would like to say that the new anti-Semitism is situated at the Jewish educative level in the Euro-Arab world against Israel. Its themes belong to traditional European Judeophobia but they have integrated into a context of an ideology of Islamic Jihad, and that is why the new Judeophobia bears within it the destruction of the
West, of its Institution, its culture, and its soul.
