For those of you, my few, faithful readers, who have been reading this blog for a while, you will know my hypothesis about the future of Europe. (<---Check out the comments on that one, egad!) I don't believe that entire countries will, in their parliaments and whatnot, go Islamic. The shari'a will not come in from above, but from below.
As larger and larger urban areas become Islamized (and it is happening very quickly), shari'a will not need to come in from above, through the traditional processes of legislation. Rather, it will come in from below, from people willing to enforce it and profit from it, and from the fact that the ethnic-European police will not even enter a lot of those neighborhoods.
So we are talking about de-facto City States, not de jure Nation States, going Islamic. That seems like an incontrovertible trend to me, and I would love to see any evidence pointing away from this reality. The nation state as a model will become increasingly unimportant, I project, as Western Civilization continues to decline, and the Islamic cultures overcome the sterile remains of the Englihtenment.
My latest piece of evidence for this is the total chaos we now see in Libya.
I am really not happy about this, but it appears that Libya, and indeed the entirety of Tripoli, has been reduced to warlordism and rule by militia (even worse than my city-state model....Europe may well get there, but the City-State model will come first). Read all about it at the IHT. Here is a snippet:
Residents say some of the fighters have sought to preserve law and order
in the midst of government helplessness. Militias from Benghazi and
Zintan are trying to protect a refugee camp of 1,500 people driven from their homes
in Tawergha by fighters from Misurata, who bitterly blamed them for
aiding Colonel Qaddafi’s assault on their town. Since the Tawerghans
arrived in the camp, which once housed Turkish construction workers in
Tripoli, Misurata militiamen have staged raids five or six times there
despite the presence of the other militias, detaining dozens, many of
them still in custody.
