The German city of Hamburg has passed a bylaw allowing the government to temporarily seize vacant commercial buildings in order to house refugees. This measure is to run the course of the winter into March 2017 for these refugees will die of exposure in the cold weather of Germany.
The migration of refugees to Europe is part of a long historical trend. The last invasion ended with the Battle of Vienna which took place in Vienna on September 11th, 1683 and concluded on the following day. It was that battle which caused the first financial panic in that list of panics I stumbled upon which led me to the discovery of the Economic Confidence Model.
This current migration, some are calling an invasion, appears to be on time no matter what we call it. Whether it is a real invasion or fleeing from another Islamic civil war, results to a large extent the same effects. The attempts of the Muslim world to invade Europe go back to Charles Martel (c 688-741), the grandfather of Charlemagne, and the Battle of Tours in October 732, which is also called the Battle of Poitiers where he stopped the invasion led by the Umayyad Caliphate, which was the second of the four major Islamic caliphates established after the death of Muhammad. This particular caliphate was centered on the Umayyad dynasty rising directly from Mecca.
For those unfamiliar with the history of Islam, there were rivalries between the Arab tribes which had caused civil unrest in the provinces outside Syria. The Second Muslim Civil War of 680–692 was when the leadership of the Umayyad clan shifted from the Sufyanid branch of the family to the Marwanid branch. The failed invasion of Europe in 732 with the Battle of Tours, led to a decline in confidence of the leadership. This was followed by the Berber Revolt of 740–743. As a direct result of all this warfare, the resources of government were exhausted. The Umayyads were further weakened by the Third Muslim Civil War of 744–747, were finally they were defeated by the Abbasid Revolution in 750 CE/132 AH. One branch of the family fled across North Africa to Al-Andalus and established the Caliphate of Córdoba, which lasted until 1031 in Spain.
So has Europe imported a civil war? Clearly, the Western powers do not understand their history and the attempt to topple the Syrian government will lead to total chaos. This is by no means in the best interests of national security for Europe or the United States. This is a braindead war game with very serious consequences for it is not over territory, it involves religion with no borders..
Sorry – It’s Just Time.
