Welcome to Europe's "Camp of the Saints"

Jean Raspail's 1973 book about the invasion of Europe by hordes from the third world has turned into a news report.

Sweden could solve the problem of migrants through the creation of a “state within a state” for them in which the national laws would not apply. This is the idea not of a right-wing columnist, but of the chief economist at the World Bank, Paul Romer, director of the Stern School of Business at New York University, who exposed these ideas to the newspaper Dagens Nyhter.

“The issue of refugees is a huge problem, but there are possible solutions”, Romer said. “Sweden, a sparsely populated country, could rent a surface the size of Hong Kong. It is important that this free zone is considered independent, with its own laws and rules, and not as part of Sweden. Those who live there would not be Swedish citizens, but they could live their lives completely separate from the rest of society”. The chief economist at the World Bank included as an example the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad.

Too late. Doesn't he know that these “free zones” already exist in Europe? They are known as “no go zones”. A report just suggested that the Swedish police are failing to control the country’s suburbs following the creation of as many as 55 so-called “no-go zones”. There are the hundreds of “sensitive areas” in France, the Parisian banlieue and that of Sevran, the “Londonistan”, the “Triangle of sharia” in The Hague, Malmö and other areas subtracted by multiculturalism from democratic and European civil sovereignty.

In the UK, the Islamists dream openly about the conversion of twelve cities into a Caliphate.
To not to mention Molenbeek, in Brussels.

In the UK, the Islamists dream openly about the conversion of twelve cities into a Caliphate. Cities such as Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets. The Netherlands has a list of 40 “no go zones”. In Rotterdam there are neighborhoods such as Pendrecht, Het Oude Noorden and Bloemhof. In Copenhagen the suburb of Tingbjerg is the first “area under the control of the sharia”.

Moreover, these “free zones” in Europe would never look like the paradise of Hong Kong, built on the foundations of British common law and enriched by the experience and skills of many foreigners. It would resemble more the hell of Calais’ jungle.

Is that Europe’s fate?

In 1973, the French publisher Laffont published a book titled “Le Camp des Saints” by Jean Raspail. The premise of the novel is the invasion of the French Riviera by a horde coming from the banks of the Ganges. The opening scene shows an old professor of literature at his home in front of the sea. The catalyst for the burst is simple. The Belgian government has decided to admit and adopt a number of small children; but migrants come in droves when tens of thousands of mothers start to push their children against the doors of the Belgian consulate in Calcutta. A preacher, resembling a Caliph, calls for the poor and the wretched to advance on the “Western paradise.” 

The writer is particularly effective in capturing the banality of official announcements, the voices of ordinary people, the bishops’ statements pleading for tolerance, the intellectuals and media describing it as a big event, and the new Pope, a Brazilian…

Europeans for years didn’t have children, they are old and gray. The stream of dark-skinned people takes control of France and in fact abolishes the whites, already a declining minority throughout the West. The epilogue of the book shows the French population fleeing from the southern regions and the army units deserting en masse.

Does it sound familiar? 

From his apartment in Paris, Jean Raspail recently returned to speak to the media. “People know everything intuitively: that France, as our ancestors have designed it for centuries, is disappearing. Our civilization will be eliminated without even a funeral”.
