The long-term consequences of mass migration for Europe’s “culture and way of life” may be the biggest long-term threat…and it must not be overlooked.

“The current wave of migrants is not a threat only with the direct risk of terrorism. Most of the illegal migrants are arriving from territories like Iran, which is also a focal point of the coronavirus,” said Istvan Hollik, the communications director of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party.

“We cannot put at risk the security of the Hungarian people, so we continue to say ‘no’ to immigration and we protect the Hungarian borders,” Hollik said in a video posted Wednesday on Facebook.

Worries about the potential spread of the new virus by migrants have also been mentioned as a risk factor by officials in Greece and Croatia. In varying degrees, they have identified migrants as security threats and — also in varying degrees — linked them directly to coronavirus fears.

* No doubt, these are very valid points (terrorist, virus) raised by Hungary and others that justify the closed borders. However, few talk about preserving Europe’s culture and the growing influence of Islam (especially Sunni). Hungary, to its credit, has been the one consistent country that also speaks of defending its culture and heritage from mass migration from alien cultures.

Terror is an immediate threat as a result of open borders. ISIS and other terrorists thrive on the kind of open border surrender one has witnessed in Europe. They want as many migrants as possible entering Europe to create chaos so they can “blend in”. Once here, they simply disappear off the radar screen and look for opportunities to strike. The huge numbers of migrants entering Europe at rapid speeds make it virtually impossible to identify the sleeper cells. The blowback to open borders is here and it will intensify.

Yet, even more problematic may be the future repercussions once radicalization takes its course. One can look at France and Belgium for examples. They have encouraged Muslim migration for decades. The first generation was generally not a problem. But as the numbers increased, the next generations rejected the culture and became bolder and more aggressive. As the multicultural experiment melted-down, radicalization set in and morphed into the “home-grown” terrorism we see today. It is no coincidence that the countries with the largest Muslim populations also had the most “citizen jihadists” fighting for the cause in Syria.

This is why one cannot deny the link between mass Muslim migration, multiculturalism, new migrants, radicalization, and home grown terror. They feed off one another.

Moreover, there are very good reasons why the Visegrad states and others reject mass migration. They see very well the blowback to the mass migration and multicult promoted by the West EU bloc over the last several decades. Once flooded, like France and Belgium, it may be too late to reverse the damage. In addition, many are rightfully concerned about a growing Muslim population and how it may one day treat Christians and non-Muslims in Europe. Just look at the Middle East or parts of Africa where there is a heavy Muslim influence or majority. In many parts of Western Europe, the demographics are downright frightening. Central Europe does not view this as an attraction and wants no part of this “diversity”.

While there are many valid reasons to reject mass migration, the long-term cultural repercussions must be openly discussed and taken seriously…before it is too late. Thanks to Hungary and Poland, more in Europe are starting to bring up the ‘cultural issue’ regarding mass migration from often alien and violent cultures incompatible with the European culture and way of life.

FYI: When we speak of Europe, we do not speak of EU, which is a separate organization with its own values, which often clash with Europe’s history and culture.
