| “What is happening in the Middle East will happen in Europe”

|At last, a true bishop. Compare Isa Gürbüz, a man who isn’t afraid to
face inconvenient truths, with Pope Francis and the U.S. Conference of
Catholic Bishops, who delude themselves and their people with soothing
and suicidal falsehoods, telling themselves and those whom they should
be warning and protecting that Islam is a Religion of Peace and that the
cure for what ails the West is an inundation of Muslim migrants.
Gürbüz sees the future they are inviting, and sees why future
generations of free people, if there are any, will regard them as dupes
who helped bring about the destruction of Western civilization. “‘What is happening in the Middle East will happen in Europe,'”
translated from «Was im Nahen Osten geschieht, wird auch in Europa
passieren», Tages Anzeiger, April 14, 2016 :
Isa Gürbüz, the Syrian Orthodox Church leader in
Switzerland, calls Christians to be vigilant. The agenda of Islam is to
take power. “In 20 or 30 years there will be a Muslim majority in Europe. Half of
European women will then wear a hijab.” This prediction doesn’t come
from Michel Houellebecq or Thilo Sarrazin, but from Dionysos Isa Gürbüz,
the Syrian Orthodox bishop in Switzerland.
He resides in the idyllic
Lake Zug Arth Capuchin monastery, with two monks and two nuns. From the
monastery Mor Avgin, as it is called today, he oversees the 10,000
Syrian Orthodox faithful in Switzerland and 4,000 in Austria. Isa Gürbüz is busy preparing for the Easter services, which are
celebrated in his church in late April. Then his coreligionists will
flock in the hundreds to Arth. Together they will pray, sing and debate –
in the Aramaic native language, the sacred language that Jesus spoke.
The Syrian Orthodox Church is the oldest of all. In her home in the
former Mesopotamia, today Syria and Iraq, they are persecuted. “Arth has
therefore become a center for the preservation of our endangered
religion and culture,” says Gürbüz. The fate of the Christians preoccupies the bishop.
