There's only one way Europe can be saved
By Donald Hank

Fox News recently reported that there are some 400 ISIS fighters poised to unleash hell against the foolish Europeans who insist on importing them to their shores in the vain hope that they will somehow assimilate and learn "European values."

So why this is happening in Europe and not the US?

This is happening there primarily because the European governments and in particular the EU have invited people from Muslim terror-exporting countries into European countries, where Muslims who are hostile to Westerners and their "values" have been able to settle in enclaves and no-go zones and live without integrating, while receiving welfare and social services from their beneficent hosts.

Therefore,
    1 – Their children never learn European values

    2 – European values do not include any religion but only disdain for religion. Ultimately, they are not values at all but rather anti-values. If you ask a typical European about his religious views he will be quick to offer a litany of things that he does not believe but almost nothing that he holds dear and reveres let alone worships. Muslims cannot be expected to accept this blasphemous and disrespectful view as a viable alternative to their strong faith.
You cannot fight Islamic terrorism from an atheistic standpoint because atheism is not a standpoint. It offers people nowhere to stand, just a floating platform where no one feels secure. Thus by shunning religion Europeans offend them deeply.

If Europe were a bastion for a masculine, vibrant and and strong brand of Christianity, this obstinate rejection of Europe would not be happening, for at least 3 reasons:
    1 – Christians would understand that Islam is incompatible with Christianity and Christian Europeans would not invite them into their midst as readily as do atheistic Europeans, whose "leaders" entertain an unrealistic hope that Muslims can be turned into cookie-cutter images of themselves. And believe me, Muslims know, and resent, that this is the ultimate aim and are not about to give up their faith in God for anything. I have spoken with serious minded young Muslims who immediately warmed up to me and respected me when I told them of my belief in Christ. It was as if I was precisely the kind of Westerner they were looking to befriend. A common complaint among them was Western atheism. One of them told me he had lived and studied in France for 11 years and had never met anyone who believed in God.

    2 – Strong Christians would not hesitate to witness to Muslims for Christ, and Muslims, for their part, would instinctively understand that Christians revere and honor their Christ and their God in the same way as Muslims honor Allah and Mohammed. Contrary to the squishy European view, this would not necessarily be offensive to Muslims because they would see strong witnesses for Christ who held firmly to traditional Christianity with its rejection of immoral sexual lifestyles.

    3 – Whereas many Europeans, particularly on the right, show hatred toward Muslim immigrants, these immigrants would sense that Christians do not hate them and in fact love them and want to see them leave their violent religion and come to Christ.

    Unfortunately, the only Christians they meet in Europe are the squishy ones who are afraid to witness for Christ to a Muslim. Some even see Islam and Christianity as branches of the same tree of faith when in fact, Koranic Islam is a neurotic construct that has adopted a few features of Christianity while rejecting the core of it and, out of the other side of its mouth, mocking and despising the People of the Book. (I explain this here in detail).
Whereas atheism offers them nothing attractive, solid and viable, a masculine and firm but loving Christian faith offers them a viable alternative to the belief in a violent and intolerant god who demands from his faithful a constant fountain of blood from the veins of unbelievers.

If Europe ever rediscovers the redeeming faith in Jesus Christ and returns to its roots the way the Russians have done after years of religious repression, they will automatically find the solution to the Islamic terror that has it in its grip.

If you want a glimpse of what a strong, masculine redeemed European might look like, I would urge you to read this report on the Christian activist group known as the Night Riders.
