Europe chose to sacrifice its children to the Islamic Moloch

What are children worth in a hedonistic Europe? What happened to the ruler's duty to protect citizens?

When did European governments decide that our children, from Nice to Manchester, must be sacrified to radical Islam and that they are to become a photo opportunity for newspapers?

Europe cries over the innocent victims. Then it plunges into its indolent normality and continues chatting.

There is an enemy, it needs to be collared and fought by paying the necessary price to defend freedom and life in the West. And yes, it is a very high price.

Europe must learn to respond the way the Russians did after Beslan, the Ossetian school where Islamic terrorists butchered hundreds of children and innocent people. Or like Israelis did after the attack at the Dolphinarium in Tel Aviv. Otherwise, Europe will reach the point where the soldiers of Allah will have to be hunted down, from door to door, as in Mosul and Raqqa.

Is it possible that Europe's leaders have chosen to avoid fighting because they are all childless?
“Est regis tueri cives." It is the king's duty to protect citizens. Or do we think that, to continue enjoy our lazy lifestyle, we must feed the Islamic Moloch, like the god of Carthage, which demanded the sacrifice of children in return for the preservation of the city?

And another point: Is it possible that Europe's leaders have chosen to avoid fighting because they are all childless? German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, French President Emmanuel Macron, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and the head of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker, have one thing is common: they are all childless.

They don't have the most powerful stake in the future of the country they lead. Having children and grandchildren influences the desire to ensure that they are given protection and the best chance to flourish in the future. Perhaps a childless leader is unable to see further into the future apart from his own life. In Israel it would be unthinkable.

Self immolation, demographic and cultural, is the bombshell for Europeans accepting millions of unvetted Muslims into their countries. It is having devastating effects, and accelerating the destruction of hundreds of years of cultural and civilized advances for society.

Instead of children, Europeans have a weary death wish.

The current European existential condition is personified by the Emmanuel Macrons: Remain in the university till you are thirty-eight, do not have children, and spend, two months a year on a beach in Nice, eating foie gras and marching for a twentyeight-hour work week. .
