Europe's Witch Hunt
by Giulio Meotti
Princeton University's Bernard Lewis once told the German daily Die Welt that "Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century." We are already living through the self-extinction of the European civilization that shaped the age we live in. The inquisition against Europe's "racist" and "Islamophobic" writers and journalists sheds a unique light on this demographic and religious revolution. Cartoonists, novelists, intellectuals, reporters, these are "les nouveaux réactionnaires,, the new reactionaries as in the pamphlet of the leftist intellectual Daniel Lindenberg. Western intellectuals "guilty" of fighting the stereotypes of the Western elites: multiculturalism, the "droits de l'hommisme"(the human rights turned into a spoiled child), Islam and anti-Semitism. These new witches are demonized in the name of anti-racism, which the French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut called "the communism of XXI century."
The latest victim of the leftist bien-pensants allied with the Islamic fanatics is Eric Zemmour, Jewish journalist and author of the bestseller "Mélancolie Française." A few days ago, Zemmour has been dismissed from his radio show for having criticized the new French Minister of Justice, Christiane Taubira, "gentle and compassionate as a mother with her children, the poor children of the suburbs who steal, peddle, torture, rape, and sometimes kill."
