Germanic Umma: A Germany with a new purpose and new faith. By Michael Finch.

Germany will be Islamic in about two decades. The process by which this happens and the results of this transformation will be consequential beyond measure, not just for Europe, but for the world. And Germany’s acceptance of Islam as its national religion will be peaceful and seamless. In making this prediction, I am certainly not alone; many books are being written about the fall of Europe. …

Europe is not “dying.” Western Civilization as we have known it for two millenniums is dying, but Europe as a grouping of over 700 million people with technology and economies that match America and China is far from dying. …

Germans are not without pride; there is a feeling of German exceptionalism. They may lord over Europe in different ways then they did 75 years ago, but lord over it they do. And how can a German not feel “superior” in their accomplishments when just one trip to Greece or Portugal, or even France, leaves one in awe of German technology and progress. But with the demise of Christianity and nationalism considered verboten, what outlet remains in which to channel that pride?

One can say that the Germans have lost their will to fight, that it was beaten out of them in the two great wars. Perhaps. But can a nation of people and a culture that did almost nothing but fight for over 2,500 years, instilling fear from the Urals to the Pyrenees, from Ancient Rome to modern France, lose all of that in one generation? Or will it be forced to find another outlet? …

And what of Islam? It is a martial religion, a warrior religion and faith that is all consuming. Hitler admired Islam; he was not the only one, Napoleon did as well. It is not a religion for the weak; it does not turn the other cheek. It gives a purpose to a people and a nation; it is in many ways the antithesis to Christianity. We see Islam as ISIS and Osama Bin Laden living in a cave. But there is a grander tradition of Islam, a seductive tradition of Islam that has lured, and forced by conquest, a billion people into its fold in the past 1,500 years.

I do wonder if Germany thinks it can meld Islam into its culture, into its traditions and make an accommodation. A special brand of Germanic Islam. The Ottoman Turks embraced Islam and created a vast empire that ruled for over 500 years. In embracing Islam, Germany could find its purpose, its clean break from the past, one that it feels no guilt over. After all, Islam is the epitome of a politically correct religion in these times. The Germans may actually think they can bend Islam to their will. And the truly frightening thing is, maybe they can. A Germany with a new purpose and new faith, ruling over Europe as they do already, but all with an Islamic flavor. Some will say it is fantasy. I say it is time to be worried.
