Clare Ellis is a Scottish-born Canadian researcher who earned her doctorate from the University of New Brunswick in 2017. Her thesis advisor was about-to-be Cancelled professor Ricardo Duchesne; the topic was multiculturalism and mass immigration in Europe. In a recent interview she describes the petty chicanery and delaying tactics she had to endure from leftie administrators and academics before getting her work accepted [The Fate Of Europe: A Conversation With Clare Ellis, Postil Magazine, April 1, 2022]Arktos Media is bringing out her research as a trilogy entitled The Blackening of Europe. The first volume, subtitled “Ideologies and International Developments,” came out two years ago; the second, subtitled “Immigration, Islam, and the Migrant Crisis,” appeared earlier this summer. The whole is amounting to a powerful description of the suicide—actually murder—of a civilization
Islam as preached by Muhammed was both a religion and a politico-military project aimed at world conquest. In its initial phase of expansion, Islam invaded Europe through the Iberian Peninsula in 711 A.D. before being stopped by Charles Martel near Tours, France, in 732. A second advance began when the Ottoman Turks crossed into Europe in 1354, continued through their capture of Constantinople in 1453, and was only finally checked in 1683 at the Gates of Vienna. For more than two centuries thereafter, as the West rose to a position of world leadership, Islam found itself in retreat. As a practical matter, the doctrine of holy war or jihad as a religious duty incumbent upon all Muslims fell into abeyance during this period (without ever being abandoned in theory). By 1920, as Dr. Ellis writes, only four independent Muslim states were left in the world.
The twentieth century, of course, saw the rise of an anti-colonial movement against the West across much of the world. In Muslim lands this movement took the form of rediscovering the doctrine of jihad as formulated and practiced in earlier Islam, but lent new intensity by recent humiliations and a longing for revenge upon the European “infidels.” The revival was spearheaded by the Muslim Brotherhood founded in Egypt in 1928. Founder Hassan al-Banna lamented that “today Muslims are compelled to humble themselves before non-Muslims, and are ruled by unbelievers.” His aim, which he assumed was also God’s will, was to reverse this state of affairs and force the West to submit to Islam.link
