The 14th Dalai Lama: "Europe belongs to the Europeans"

The 14th Dalai Lama is a figure of great prominence, and according to polls, is "the world's most popular leader." He won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and has traveled the globe for decades, effectively speaking out against tyranny, poverty, oppression, and the obligations we have toward each other as human beings. A great number of people have likened him to the prophets of Scripture, both Eastern and Western. He's the 14th leader of the Tibetan wing of Buddhism (a lineage of high priests that dates back to the 15th Century), and is renowned and venerated for facing and denouncing the Communist Chinese for their invasion of Tibet in 1950. A violent revolution forced him to flee his country in 1959, and he was until recently the head of the Tibetan government in exile: Link.

The world-wide Leftist-Socialist-Progressives have for many years quoted, flattered, and used him to further their agendas, but that hasn't always worked well for them. The Dalai Lama caused a firestorm on September 13 while visiting Sweden. Speaking from the city of Malmo, which has been besieged by thousands of Muslim refugees and is suffering an epic violent crime wave, the Lama said, "I think Europe belongs to the Europeans... ultimately they [refugees] should rebuild their own country."  Link.

He was invited to Sweden to speak at a the 80th anniversary of an aid organization, and entitled his talk The Art of Happiness and Peace. Previously he has said that ethnicities are highly dependent on religion, and countries can be literally shattered by waves of people with contrary ideas to their native beliefs. Many other EU member nations besides Sweden are suffering horrific terror from radical Islamists. He has said, "Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country. Germany is Germany. There are so many [refugees] that in practice it becomes difficult... From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily."

This is an ancient and simple truth we in the modern world have forgotten; a fatal catastrophe unfolding daily before our eyes. The West has been generous to refugees and immigrants for many years, but increasing crime and strife are causing a backlash. Most refugees - Muslim and otherwise - can't or won't integrate into their host societies.

Canada is enduring a permanent state of high tension with Quebec, a French-speaking country sandwiched in between its English-speaking provinces. The Quebec Sovereignty Movement nearly tore Canada apart decades ago, but, because they at least share a European cultural heritage and legal system, Canadians were persuaded that their prosperity depended on borderless cooperation, so they managed to stay relatively unified.

But this cannot happen when radical and oppositional cultures flood into a host country. One culture or the other will take over. For example, Islamic Law, called Sharia, is a 7th Century system that totally undermines modern societies. A single theft can result in your hand being chopped off; adultery, being raped, or being gay invoke the death penalty. There's no presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and the rules of evidence we in the West demand are almost non-existent. In addition, the birth rates of these refugees are far higher than their host countries. This lopsided demographic fact - if left unchecked - will ultimately doom all of Western civilization and every other religion but Islam. This is another reason why the Lama spoke out. Buddhism and Hinduism, too, will be destroyed. Islam (which means submission) allows no competitors. Christians and Jews all over the Middle East have suffered persecution and mass murder in the last decade:

Coincidentally, Buddhist priest sex abuse was another issue the Dalai Lama had to confront this week. Not only Catholics, but all other religions have similar problems. Corrupt predators infest religious authority everywhere, to some degree. This is another sign of The Tribulation, a period of great crime and suffering in the world, prophesied thousands of years ago by Judeo-Christian Scripture.  

The Dalai Lama speaks about his life's mission in this Swedish television interview from 2010. English is spoken from the 1:17 mark:
