Safe Mode: On
Europe's Islamic future

In France, there are now more Islamic mosques being build - and more frequently so - than Catholic churches, and there are more practicing Muslims than practicing Catholics in the country.

If current demographic trends persist, Europe to be Muslim by century's end

Giulio Meotti Published: 12.18.11

Islam is on its way to become the most practiced religion in Europe. In a new book published by the University of Leuven, “The Iris and the Crescent,” sociologist Felice Dassetto says that Muslims will comprise the majority of the population of Brussels by 2030. The title of the book refers to the yellow flower symbol of Brussels’ region and to the Islamic emblem: While the first is decaying, the second is growing.



Muslims now make up one-quarter of the population of the capital of the enlightened Europe and they are asking to use the empty churches for Islamic prayers. Since 2008, the top seven baby boys’ names in Brussels were Mohammed, Adam, Rayan, Ayoub, Mehdi, Amine and Hamza. Mohammed is also the most popular name for baby boys in Belgium’s second-largest city, Antwerp, where an estimated 40% of elementary school children are Muslim.

Antwerp is also home to Belgium’s first Islamic Sharia law court, which began operating in September.



Yet Belgium is not an isolate case. Rabbi David Rosen, a moderate voice in the Jewish establishment, has warned that Europe risks being “overrun” by Islam. According to a recent report of the US Pew Center, Islam is already “the fastest-growing religion in Europe,” where the number of Muslims has tripled over the past 30 years. One third of all European children will be born to Muslim families by 2025.



Islam is the most practiced religion in the United Kingdom. In London, more Muslims attend mosques on Friday than do Christians churches on Sunday. The Oude Kerk, the oldest church in the city of Amsterdam, where the kings of Holland were crowned, is now a museum. The only “church” in the largest Dutch city that is crowded is the church of Scientology, a six-story building in the thick of the city center. Only 7% of Dutch Catholics now go to Sunday Mass and 16% of children are baptized.



In Austria, which was 90% Catholic in the 20th Century, Islam will be the majority religion among Austrians aged under 15 by 2050. The French case also shows that the often exaggerated “Eurabia” threat is more a quality phenomenon of religious attendance than of demographic takeover. In France, there are now more Islamic mosques being build - and more frequently so - than Catholic churches, and there are more practicing Muslims than practicing Catholics in the country.

Overall, the total number of mosques in France has already doubled to more than 2,000 in the last 10 years. The best known French Islamic leader, Dalil Boubakeur, Rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, recently suggested that the total number of mosques should double yet again, to 4,000, to meet the growing demand.



Meanwhile, the Catholic Church in France had only 20 new churches built in the last 10 years, and formally closed more than 60 churches, many of which became mosques, according to research conducted by the French Catholic daily La Croix.



Princeton University’s Bernard Lewis once told the German daily Die Welt that “Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century.” At the time, Brussels’ political and cultural elites expressed outrage at the alarmist prediction. Yet if the current trends persist, Mr. Lewis may yet be proven right.

      What's wrong with building big ovens and gas chambers??
      I know Hitler tried it before but we can just say that due to popular demand Europe is restarting the holocaust using muslims this time.
      I'm sure it would be fine, nobody needs them anyway...

      Oh btw, I read somewhere that the US has about 10 million muslims. It's a big task but I'm sure you can do it. Let me know how it all worked out...

  • And they wont do anything about it. Soon, a Muslim will be established in a position where they will have a holocaust type event for all non muslims. Look in all the other muslim dominated countries. Families murdered because they are Christian, etc.. Europe is completely fucked, I give it about 10 years or less until its dominated. The people need to stand against this disease.

      Last time i checked you even have to cope with something called "The nation of Islam"

  • the question is, when do we start fighting back? europe needs wars to weed out the weak, we've had wars for centuries and it has contributed to our modernazation. Our goverments protect these filthy muslims and takes down nationalists and resistance mouvements while they let muslims arm themselves. Here in France, the muslims shoot at cops with ak47s now during petty robberies... we are already at war but no one realises it...and nothing is done.

  • The way things are going, I fully expect to see Sharia law as The Law of the Land in Western Europe. Eventually, the population will turn majority Islam and there the democratic system will be voted away, sensible laws will be overturned and public stonings, hangings and amputations will be common. Something has to be done, immigration has to be stopped.

  • That is inevitably bound to happen with the eradication of religion, some minor of these superstitions will logically be propelled at some point to being "the most practiced", even though the squashing majority will have become irreversibly areligious.

  • It's true that christian churches are built lesser these days, as people in Europe don't want religion to interfere in everyday life and politics. Also those who practice their christian religion actively are getting lesser, but those people are still there and only because they are not radical in the living of their religion, they are still there!!

  • hopefully, and this a hope,
    that once the situation in the middle east starts to clam down then these Muslims might go back.

    i am not saying the Muslims are bad people, because i understand what is happening in the middle east and i understand why they are leaving their country s. the situation and the development in the middle east is slowly improving so hopefully these people may find their countrys more suited for them.

    • @kanns01
      Not a single chance, once they'll be strongly settled in europe, why would they go back to the M.E? The agenda of Islam is to convert the world, and that's well documented. In fact i'm pretty sure that it is and was every religions dirty little wish.
      Islam doesn't need guns and bombs anymore, the process will now flow naturally and ,oh the irony, democratically.

Otherwise we are helping the infidel and not our brothers and sisters in Islamic countries where the true Sharia Law rules.
