And so with Crusade. The word is based on crux or cross and is avoided even by Geert Wilders, yet a Crusade is precisely what he was advocating in a recent speech in the US. That is, as Wilders says, an alliance of Christianity, Judaism and (morally absolutist) Humanism against Islam.
How did the Europeans get into this situation? It is partly our own fault because we have foolishly adopted the concept of cultural relativism, which manifests itself in the ideology of multiculturalism. Cultural relativism advocates that all cultures are equal. However, cultures wither away and die if people no longer believe that its values are better than those of another culture. Islam is spreading like wildfire wherever people lack the guts to say that their values are better than the Islamic values. Islam is spreading like wildfire because the Koran explicitly tells Muslims that they are “the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind” and that non-Muslims are “the worst of creatures.” Islam is spreading like wildfire everywhere in the West where political, academic, cultural and media elites lack the guts to proudly proclaim, as I believe we all should proclaim:"Cultures wither away and die if people no longer believe that its values are better than those of another culture". The values are moral values, and ours, our peculiarly English morality, really is the apotheosis (careful, words again) of cultural superiority. The Reformation, the English Renaissance, the First and Second Enlightenments have given us a people and a culture that in terms of advanced cultural values is second to none. We must not be ashamed to say so, and in terms of a moral Crusade, rather than an inferior and primitive one that wields a sword like Islam, we must not be shy of saying unequivocally "Our values are best".
Our Judeo-Christian Western culture is far better and far superior to the islamic culture. We must be proud to say so!
