I wish Douglas Murray’s The Strange Death of Europe had come out before I wrote Nostradamus and the Islamic Invasion of Europe – I’m sure I would have quoted it often. It is sad to see the first (non-military) stages spoken of in the Nostradamus prophecies on this subject playing out in the news almost daily, and generating exactly the type of “neglect” and “negligence” and apathy Nostradamus warned us would be the reaction as France and the rest of Europe fail to defend themselves from terrorism, societal breakdown, and eventually from Islamic domination.
Paul Monk recently commented on The Strange Death of Europe in The Australian – I found it in a blog post:
“The Strange Death of Europe is about the danger he believes this poses to the future of Europe. It is intended as a clarion call to Western societies but above all Western European societies. The opening sentence reads: “Europe is committing suicide.” That is an extraordinary claim. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. He provides what may be described as such evidence.
He declares that “by the end of the lifespans of most people currently alive, Europe will not be Europe and the peoples of Europe will have lost the only place we had to call home”.
Murray believes he is seeing those signs all around him and they alarm him deeply.
His evidence for this is richly varied. Some of it comes in direct quotes from prominent political and intellectual figures who have openly declared Europe does not have a culture worth defending and that Islam has much to offer the West. He sees this as a deeply confused and culturally suicidal attitude, and is pessimistic because he is largely persuaded that this attitude is now too deeply entrenched to be changed, short of a cultural and geopolitical upheaval.
Murray dismisses scornfully the retort that such attitudes as his are merely irrational or racist Islamophobia. He marshals a wide array of evidence about immigration, multiculturalism, crime, public opinion polls, terrorism and craven political correctness that is documented closely and presented calmly.
The net effect, on a close reading, is deeply disconcerting, not because Murray seems unhinged but because Europe itself does — or at least far too many of its political and opinion leaders…. he draws attention to two French novels, written 42 years apart, that prophesise a strange capitulation by France to Islam. The first, in 1973, was Jean Raspail’s The Camp of the Saints. The second, in 2015, was Michel Houellebecq’s Submission.
Raspail eerily foresaw a tidal wave of Muslim immigrants coming to France and the country unable or unwilling to turn them away.
Houellebecq, notoriously, writes of Muslim political figures taking over France in 2020, equally without resistance, and the novel’s key character — the decadent scion of a culture [near its] end — converting to Islam for the sake of money, polygamy and a teaching job.
His discussion of the two novels is illuminating. If you have read Houellebecq’s Submission and found yourself queerly drawn to its demoralised sense of European capitulation and emptiness, Murray’s book is for you. It offers empirical evidence in place of novelistic imagination and serious thinking in place of disconcerting and provocative fantasy. The beauty of the book is that it constitutes a systematic and morally coherent argument.
One may freely challenge the argument, but this is at the very least a presentation of it with which as many of us as possible must engage.
Murray travelled widely and collected a great deal of data for his book. He visited the European frontiers where the immigrants have been pouring in. He interviewed people across the spectrum from genuine refugees to political figures. He has put the problem in historical, continental, political and cultural context. He is literate, dignified and highly articulate.
Reading his book, I found myself thinking uncomfortably of the Gothic and other Germanic migrations into the Roman Empire from the 3rd century to the 5th; and the Arab migrations of the 7th and 8th centuries that swamped the southern and eastern littorals of the Roman world and overran the Persian and Turkish worlds. Murray clearly sees these historical antecedents and their implications as relevant points of reference. It is not clear that he is in error. It would be reassuring, however, if a serious and temperate debate was to be prompted by his book and policies put in place to prevent what he fears from coming about.”

Some comments from readers of The Australian article:
“Western Europe is happily committing cultural suicide & when you look at who is currently leading them, none have a vested stake in the future (i.e. none have children- yes that matters). The Left will sneer at those who oppose them only because the Left is devoid of any credible arguments of their own. Western civilisation has been systematically demoralised, by Socialism, introduced through the Universities in the mid 1960’s & now after Socialism has percolated through Western society for a couple of generation we see the fruit it brings. Islamic migration & Left wing ideologues go hand in hand because one supports the other UNTIL islam is the ascendent force & the West is finally snuffed out.”
“When does the military fight back begin or is a total bloodless capitulation predicted?”
“One of the problems with speaking out or speaking ones mind is that the Western Intelligence agencies monitor and target dissidents in case they start joining like minded people to arrange a defence or resistance.
I think this is part of the suicide of the West. Our leaders and media are so sucked in or seduced by Islam for goodness knows what reasons, that the leadership is doing the work for Islam, by subjugating and oppressing their own peoples.”
“The immigrant inundation of Europe and the UN-orchestrated sharing out of the problem worldwide have both been made possible and exacerbated by migrants and refugees being sustained by Europe’s welfare/social security resource that was accumulated over many generations to cater to the expected needs of just the European host populations.
When that “pot” of welfare funds runs out and can no longer being sustained by increasing levels of debt, the pain will be felt by host populations and migrants/refugees alike. That is when things are likely to go seriously pear-shaped.
The inevitable financial consequences of bad, unsustainable policies and bad decisions can only be held at bay for so long. And one only has to see the YouTube clip “Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs” to understand why the Merkel/EU/UN approach to the problem is going to end in tears all round and probably in much more violence around the globe.”
So I watched the recommended video before adding it below, and it makes an excellent case for why immigration to well-off countries CANNOT POSSIBLY end the the suffering in worse-off countries. If a 6 minute video is incredibly convincing of this, then there must be other reasons why European nations are bringing in so many immigrants. And my conclusion so far is: there is a conspiracy from above the level of Europe’s national leaders, pressuring Europe to commit suicide, to bring on a third world war with Islam (just as Nostradamus predicts will occur soon) in order to push the New World Order on the survivors in the aftermath.
