The Failure of Multiculturalism

Tom Wallace

Today I want to look at how some of the European leaders have realized that multiculturalism is a failure. This is based upon information that we reported some seven years ago. What baffles me is that, in spite of the admission that multiculturalism doesn’t work, they are today allowing large numbers of Muslims to come into their countries.

What is happening in Europe today with the “refugee” crisis is not immigration, it is an invasion. There are about a million “refugees” invading Europe, most of them are men of fighting age. Since they are Muslims, we know they will not assimilate into the culture.

Chancellor Merkle in Germany said that multiculturalism was a failure. The Prime Minister of the UK and the President of France agreed with this opinion. The statements were made more than seven years ago and time has shown that they have not really learned the lesson.

Multiculturalism has been tried in Europe for more than 60 years. It started after WWII when Europe needed laborers to rebuild their infrastructure. Most of those who were brought in were Muslims. In the beginning, they did not think these laborers would stay. They thought these laborers would return home when the jobs were finished. They didn’t realize they had opened a Pandora’s Box.

Europe needed the workers so, instead of making them conform to European culture, the people of Europe were made to accept the culture of these immigrants. This forced the countries to become multicultural. They have allowed a sub-society to grow within their borders. They are finally waking up and realizing that they are in trouble.

The problems with Muslims are not new in France. It was not a surprise when the French President agreed with other European leaders on the failure of multiculturalism. Here is a quote from the French President (remember, it was more than seven years ago when he said this):

My answer is clearly yes, it is a failure. Of course, we must all respect differences, but we do not want a society where communities coexist side by side. If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France.

We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving, and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him.

The leaders in Europe are fed up with multiculturalism, but in America, we are capitulating and embracing this failed idea. Political correctness is still more important than truth. This will be the death of our nation. Political correctness destroys freedom and common sense.

Let me give you one example of how multiculturalism results in foolish actions in countries where it is accepted. The following is from Voice of Europe, November 22, 2018:

      1. Refugee acquitted of rape ‘as he has different cultural norms’

A refugee from Bangladesh was tried by a French court and was acquitted of the rape of a high school girl. The verdict was handed down yesterday.

The young man also sexually assaulted another young girl. He was charged with both cases but acquitted of the rape.

According to the defense, the refugee has ‘different cultural norms’ or ‘cultural codes’ and could have misinterpreted the contact with the girl.

Experts who investigated the man described him as narcissistic and self-centered and that in the male culture of Bangladesh, his country of origin, “women are relegated to the status of sexual objects”.

Both incidents happened near the end of 2015. The accused, aged 18 at the time of the rape, went for a walk with a 16-year-old girl who attended the same high school.

He suggested they go to his house in Saint-Lô. There, he kissed her, touched her and groped her genitals….

In custody, the refugee says that the girl was consenting and the police closed the case. After which the young girl attempts suicide in late 2015 was hospitalized for a week.

Four months later the refugee was arrested again and the final verdict was handed down yesterday.

The refugee is acquitted of the rape but sentenced to two years in prison as a suspended sentence for the sexual assault of the first victim…

Don’t you think that in North America we should learn from the mistakes they have made in Europe? Canada is already suffering the effects of multiculturalism. When I visit Canada, I see how much foreigners have influenced Canadian culture. In some areas, you would think you were not in Canada but in a different country.

I am not against foreigners. I was a foreigner for a large part of my life. There is a place for immigration. Every country needs to have an immigration program. However, it must be a wise policy that builds the country, not a policy that divides the country.

Although I am not against Muslims, I believe that the way we allow them to build their own communities and keep their own culture is destroying Western nations. I think it is important that Muslims who do come into Western nations assimilate so they can be exposed to the Gospel and be freed from the slavery of Islam. What other religion threatens you with death if you leave that religion? Most Muslims are trapped in Islam and are afraid to even look at the Bible. For Muslims, just looking at another religion can put their lives at risk.

Again, let me stress that those who immigrate should be expected to assimilate into the culture of the host country. Europe is waking up to the fact that they made a mistake in not expecting this of immigrants. These countries are losing their identities and are dying a slow death.

I want to remind you of the quote by Omar Ahmad, the founder of CAIR:

Listen carefully, Muslims institutions, schools, and economic power should be strengthened in America. Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting into it.

Muslims can be open to Western society, but they cannot melt into it.

America is a nation of immigrants. America has historically opened its doors to people from other nations, allowing them to make America their home. Is this not the message of the Statue of Liberty? Immigrants were welcome, but they were expected to melt into our society.

Muslims have a different goal. Their goal is to change us and make our nation an Islamic state. America was founded upon biblical principles. It is these principles that made us a great nation. I will stand for these principles as long as God gives me breath.

America is not doing a good job of upholding our Christian values. We need to realize that we, as Christians, have failed. We are to be salt and light in this world. For too long we have been saying that things are not right and someone should do something about it. We are the ones that need to stand up and do something. I believe that our lack of faithfulness to God’s precepts has brought God’s judgment upon our nation.

I want to make something very clear. When I say God is bringing judgment upon America, Muslims may think I am right, Allah is bringing judgment upon us. This is not what I mean. I mean that Jehovah God is bringing this judgment upon us. It is the God of the Bible, not the God of the Qur’an.

Muslims believe that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the same god they worship in Allah. We must realize that Jehovah and Allah are not the same God. The two are diametrically opposed one to the other. Jehovah loves sinners enough to have sent His Son to die for the sins of the world. The Qur’an tells us the Allah does not love sinners.

John 1:12 tells us that we can become the children of God.

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:12

The Qur’an says that no one can be God’s children,

Surah 39:4 – Had Allah wished to take himself a son he could have chosen whom he pleased out of those whom he doth create, but he is above such things.

In Islam, it is considered heresy to say that Allah has a son. They reject Jesus Christ as the Son of God.

I want you to understand that unless you accept Jesus Christ as Jehovah God unless, you accept Him and His sacrifice on the cross for your sin, turn from your efforts to save yourself, and trust His work on the cross, you cannot be saved.

Oh, how we need revival in America! Unless we turn back to God, our nation and Western culture will be lost.
