Of wolves and of sheep

A friend asked me "...how come that there are so many islamic attacks on France and Belgium, countries which have offered a welcome and the good life to  so many muslims over generations. Don't they risk to  harm  their own too ?"   My first answer in the shadow of Paris and Brussels and Cologne and and and was harsh and impulsive: "Harm is what they do!"

I then elaborated (as I do) and gave him a second, slightly longer answer  in form of a well known fable that  illustrates how vicious natures "just cannot help it".  (My own jury is still out on which  one takes precedence in the  "Nurture versus Nature?" argument, but I know that when both are combined, it can (and will) bring a heavenly or a deadly result. )

The little fable goes like that:

A scorpion asks a frog to carry it across a river. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung, but the scorpion argues that if it did so, they would both drown. Considering this, the frog agrees, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When the frog asks the scorpion why, the scorpion replies that it was just his nature and he could not help it. 

On reflection however, that still lets those off the hook who are responsible for introducing, accommodating and now accelerating the islamisation of Europe. So I think that the story, told on an Arabic blog by a Moroccan Berber and posted on Riposte Laique  was worth translating for my friend and for you. 

Here it is: 

La bergerie et son loup 

The sheepfold and its wolf 

Belgium              Turkey           France  

"Once upon a time, a shepherd lived in a cold country. He was worried to see his sheep and those of neighbouring shepherds regularly attacked and devoured by wolves during their incursions into the sheepfolds .

Constantly looking for a solution to this worrying phenomenon, the shepherd finally found an idea which he believed to be great, effective and beneficial if he managed to achieve it.  It involved raising the little wolf cubs in his own sheepfold, domesticating them slowly and patiently, and so create a good relationship between them and his sheep, to protect the latter from outside attacks and to foster a climate of understanding and peaceful coexistence among all the beasts.

Putting his  idea into practise  he found that the plan  responded  to his ideal and that the experience proved encouraging and even promising. Indeed, the other wolves and his own now only attacked the herds of the neighbours and those in distant regions and his sheep lived peacefully in his sheepfold. 

He was content and continued to live quietly, convinced that the problem had been resolved and that the pack of wolves he had domesticated, would coexist and live happily ever after  with his sheep.

This peaceful coexistence, however, lasted only for a while. His wolves multiplied and become increasingly numerous. They were not satisfied any longer with just the animals from outside the fold. One day, without any warning sign, the wolves he had believed to be well trained and thoroughly domesticated, devoured him and all his sheep. 

Moral: Whoever raises and maintains wolves should never believe that they will attack only the herds of others."

In conclusion, the Berber Menhem Wahyati writes what many of us have long suspected: 

"Poor Europeans! Your governments sustain nothing but wolves in your folds. It is naive and unrealistic to believe that they can be domesticated or tamed! "

In a tone of despair, the RL author Malek Sibali, concludes his article with the rhetorical question: 

"Combien faut-il encore d’attentats et d’incursions dans la bergerie, comme celui de Bruxelles, de Bataclan, de Charlie Hebdo, de l’Hyper Casher, etc., pour secouer les consciences des responsables politiques et comprendre enfin que l’islam représente le virus le plus mortel qui ne cherche qu’à détruire l’Occident, à gangrener le monde et qui ne sera jamais éradiqué sans une opération chirurgicale radicale !"

Yes, indeed, "how many more terrorist attacks and incursions into the sheepfold, like the ones in Brussels, the Bataclan, Charlie Hebdo, the Kosher Deli etc. are needed to shake the consciences of our politicians..........." (Psssssst: I will not translate this paragraph in toto, lest Angela Merkel and her army of censors are watching ;) )

Yet another ThankYouNote  to Frau Merkel and the German people she betrayed from her protégés.
