Cohesion For The Common Cause
ADV Broadcast Of June 11, 2011
Hello, and welcome to another broadcast of American Dissident Voices, the Internet radio program of the National Alliance. I’m your host and Chairman of the Alliance, Erich Gliebe.
With all the hoopla over the last month surrounding the so-called “killing” of Osama bin Laden, one important statistic of note has come out, although the mainstream media has made nothing of it. And that noteworthy news item is that Osama bin Laden left behind 23 children. TWENTY-THREE! Do you know how many White couples today, averaged out, it would take to bring into this world 23 children? More than a dozen White couples. To the White race, the disproportionately large number of these non-White Muslims having children compared to Whites is the number one greatest threat Islam represents, because they are flooding into our traditional White homelands of Europe, North America, and Australia.
Here are some alarming stats to keep in mind: The figure 2.1 to woman is considered to be a population replacement level. Well here are the numbers of children that women in the following European nations are having:
Norway – 1.81
Sweden – 1.75
Germany – 1.37
Italy – 1.33
As you can see, the populations in our ancestral lands are not sufficiently being replaced.
Now, let’s look at some Muslim population figures. In Germany there are currently over 4.1 million Muslims, or 5% of the population. And sometime in the next decade there will be over 5 million Muslims in Germany, representing 7% of the population. These figures show that the good German racial stock is being replaced by an alien population that is imploding.
The Muslim population in the United Kingdom currently stands at 2.9 million, roughly 4.6% of the population. In a decade, the U.K. Muslim population will reach over 5.5 million, around 8% of the population.
We are currently facing a serious, deadly threat to our survival, however, our history is indeed full of examples where Whites have stood together to confront a dangerous enemy. I think it is time we recall one of the most notable of such times, not only because of the great lesson we can learn from it in terms of White unity, but also because it shows that the single greatest threat which faces Europe today, has in fact been hammering at that continent’s door for centuries.
For more than two hundred years, ever since the fall of Constantinople in 1452, the Muslim invasion of Southeastern Europe had proceeded apace. First crossing from what is today Turkey, the Ottoman Turks had subjected one Eastern European people after another, reaching high up even into Ukraine. By the year 682, clashes between the Muslim invaders and the Austrians had intensified. The White Austrian army launched a pre-emptive strike into the then Muslim occupied part of central Hungary, providing the Ottoman Grand Vizier, Kara Mustafa Pasha, with a good reason to persuade the Sultan, Mehmet IV, to launch a full-scale invasion of Austria. The Ottoman Army was mobilized on January 21, 1682, and war was declared on August 6, 1682.
The Austrians knew what was at stake: if they lost this great battle, the last bulwark against the Islamification of all of central Europe would be gone. Western Europe had only narrowly escaped a similar fate from the defeated Moorish invasion, which had started over 900 years earlier.
The Ottoman Army set off on April 1, 1683 from Thracia in what is today Greece. The long period of mobilization and preparation, plus the time it took for the Muslim invaders to reach the borders of Austria, provided a much needed window of opportunity to the rulers of Austria, the Habsburg, to prepare their defenses.
Now, anyone who has studied European history knows that if there was one thing Europeans were good at in those times, it was fighting each other. The English fought the French, the Spanish fought the English, the Scots fought the English, the Germans fought each other, and everyone seemed to fight with the Poles. It was a never-ending merry-go-round of internecine wars, mostly fought over land or petty personal squabbles between the various kings or leaders. Unity amongst this lot seemed impossible.
Yet, the gravity of the situation was apparent to all. If the Muslim Ottoman invaders broke the Austrians, then the path to central Europe – and ultimately all of continental Europe – would be open to the non-White invaders. It was a prospect that shook even the formerly squabbling White leaders out of their mutual antipathy.
So it was that during the winter of 1682, the Habsburgs and Poland concluded a treaty in which the Austrian King Leopold I, would support the Polish King Jan Sobieski III if the Turks attacked Kraków; in return, the Polish Army would come to the relief of Vienna, if that city was attacked. Listeners who know the troubled history of relations between Germans and Poles will immediately appreciate the implications of such a pact.
By April 1683, the Muslim army had reached Belgrade, and by early May, was approaching the city of Vienna itself. About 40,000 Tartar Forces arrived about 28 miles east of Vienna on July 7th, twice as many as the Austrian forces in that area. After some initial skirmishes, the Austrians under Leopold I retreated to Linz with 80,000 inhabitants of Vienna. It seemed as if the city – and possibly Austria itself – would fall easily to the Islamic invasion force.
Jan Sobieski was, however, a man of his word. He prepared an army of some 30,000 Poles and marched south. This was an incredible act of bravery, for it meant leaving his own nation virtually undefended, at a time when he still had serious enemies with which to contend.
In the meanwhile, the main Turkish Army, about 138,000 men strong, had arrived and surrounded Vienna on July 14th. The city’s defender, Graf Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg, leading a pitifully small force of 11,000 men and only some 5,000 Viennese citizens, retreated behind the city walls and refused to surrender. They would fight to the death against the Muslim menace.
The Viennese had demolished many of the houses around the city walls and cleared the debris, leaving an empty plain that would expose the Turks to defensive fire if they tried to rush the city. The Turkish commander, Kara Mustafa Pasha, solved that problem by ordering his forces to dig long lines of trenches directly toward the city, to help protect them from the defenders as they advanced steadily toward the city.
As their 300 cannons were outdated and the fortifications of Vienna were up-to-date, the Turks had a more effective use for their gunpowder: undermining. Tunnels were dug under the massive city walls to blow them up with explosives, using sapping mines.
The Ottomans had essentially two options to take the city: both seemed to be guaranteed to succeed. The first would be an all-out assault on Vienna and, as they outnumbered the defenders by at least 20 to 1, they could take heavy losses but would still most likely win. The second option was to lay siege to the city, and suffer minimal losses while starving the defenders into surrendering. They chose the siege option, and settled down to what they thought was going to be an easy, if time consuming, victory.
The siege cut virtually every means of food supply into Vienna, and the garrison and civilian volunteers suffered extreme casualties. However, the Turks had not counted on the thing they expected the least: White unity. In August, the first hint of relief came when Austrian forces under Charles V, Duke of Lorraine, beat off Hungarian allies of the Turks at Bisamberg, three miles northeast of Vienna.
Then, on September 6th, the Poles crossed the Danube 20 miles north west of Vienna at Tulln, to unite with the Austrian forces. Additional men and supplies poured in from Saxony, Bavaria, Baden, Franconia, and Swabia – all previously squabbling German principalities who only a few years prior, had been at each others throats. A might army of Germans, Austrians, and Poles had now been drawn up.
At the same time, in early September, 5,000 Turkish sappers had blown up large portions of the city walls, the Burg bastion, the Löbel bastion, and the Burg ravelin in between, creating gaps of about 30 feet in width. The Austrians tried to counter by digging their own tunnels, to intercept the depositing of large amounts of gunpowder in subterranean caverns. The Turks finally managed to occupy the Burg ravelin and the Nieder wall in that area on September 8th. Anticipating a breach in the city walls, the remaining Austrians prepared to fight in Vienna itself.
The relief army had to act quickly to save the city from the Turks. Despite the international composition and the short time of only six days, an effective leadership structure was established, centered on the King of Poland and his heavy cavalry. The army’s motivation was high, as this war was not as usual for the interests of kings, but for the very survival of Europe itself.
The White army, now some 81,000-strong, arrived on the "Kahlen Berg" – the “bare hill” above Vienna, signaling their arrival with bonfires. In the early morning hours of September 12th, the battle for the soul of Europe was joined. Early in the morning at 4:00 am, the Muslim forces opened hostilities with an attack on the White army. This led to an unplanned for counterattack by the Austrian army on the left, and the German forces in the center.
Suddenly, Mustafa Pasha realized his error. He had needed to take Vienna before the new united White army arrived, but had not. Now he would have to do battle on two fronts, and divide his forces. Quickly he ordered another large and final detonation under the Löbelbastei walls of the city, to try and close the one front. While the Turks hastily finished their work and sealed the tunnel to make the explosion more effective, and an Austrian detachment, specializing in detecting Turkish tunnels, detected the cavern. One of them entered and defused the explosives just in time.
Simultaneously, the Polish infantry launched a massive assault upon the Turkish right flank. Instead of focusing on the battle with the relief army, the Turks tried to force their way into the city. After 12 hours of fighting, Sobieski's Polish force held the high ground on the right. At about five o'clock in the afternoon, after watching the ongoing infantry battle from the hills for the whole day, four cavalry groups, one of them Austrian-German, and the other three Polish, totaling 20,000 men, charged down the hills.
The attack was led by the Polish king in front of a spearhead of 3,000 heavily armed winged Polish lancer hussars. This charge broke the lines of the Ottomans, who were tired from the long fight on two fronts. In the confusion, the cavalry headed straight for the Ottoman camps, while the remaining Vienna garrison sallied out of its defenses and joined in the assault.
The Ottoman army was defeated and started breaking up. Units fled south and east. In less than three hours after the cavalry attack, the united White army had won the battle and had saved Vienna. The Turks lost about 15,000 men in the fighting, compared to approximately 4,000 for the Habsburg-Polish forces. Little wonder then, that after the battle, Sobieski paraphrased Julius Caesar's famous quote by saying, "Veni, vidi, Deus vicit" - "I came, I saw, God conquered."
Although no one realized it at the time, the battle shaped the outcome of the entire war as well. The Ottomans fought on for another 16 years, losing control of Hungary and Transylvania in the process, before finally giving up. The end of the conflict was finalized by the Treaty of Karlowitz. The Battle of Vienna was without question the beginning of the end of the Ottoman Empire’s attempts to seize more territory in Europe. From that time on, they were slowly driven south, until the end of the First World War, when they were finally driven off most of mainland Europe.
In honor of Sobieski, the Austrians erected a church atop a hill of Kahlenberg, north of Vienna. The train route from Vienna to Warsaw is also named in Sobieski's honor. The constellation Scutum Sobieskii (Sobieski’s Shield) was named to memorialize the battle.
Although the unity forged that day against a common enemy did not last (as the Poles and Germans soon set to fighting with one another again), the lesson which the siege of Vienne showed that in times of real crisis, it is possible for Whites of many different persuasions to stand together. This is lesson number one from that time: never mind what has happened in the past, European unity still remains a primary goal and objective. This is something all people involved in the pro-White Cause should carefully consider before attacking anyone else.
The second great lesson from this time is that the Muslim menace to Europe is centuries old. From the time of the first Moorish invasion of Iberia around the mid 700s right up to today, Europe has continually been the subject of attack by the Muslims in one form or another.
Previously, the Muslims used the sword and cannon to invade Europe. Today they use the passport, the immigration visa, illegal immigration, and the crib to achieve their goal. The tactics differ, but the goal remains the same: the Islamification of Europe. Europe is already home to some 12.5 million Muslims. Islam is Europe's fastest growing religion, with immigration and above average birth rates leading to a rapid increase in the Muslim population. There can be little doubt that the Muslim invasion today represents the single greatest threat to the immediate biological survival of Europe, in the same way that the Latino invasion of America has eclipsed the Negro population as the single largest threat.
All over Europe, Islamic militancy has reared its head. In Britain, that country’s worst ever peacetime terrorist attacks have been carried out by home grown Muslim extremists who have bombed trains and buses. In France, large Muslim riots have seen whole areas of Parisian suburbs burned to the ground. Germany was only spared a murderous train bombing by the failure of some detonators to ignite Muslim-placed explosive devices on some high speed trains. Spain has suffered dramatically from Muslim train bombings, and it is of interest to note that when the Spanish Muslim train bombers were surrounded by police in their Madrid apartment, they placed a telephone call to a Muslim Imam in London before blowing themselves up.
In Russia, militant Islamic terrorists from Chechnya have been responsible for an astonishing series of violent and murderous attacks upon White Russians, including the bombing of trains, the mass murder of patrons in a Moscow theater and, of course, the famous Beslan School siege, where dozens of innocent children were slaughtered.
How much longer can the Muslim threat to Europe be ignored? The answer is, not that much more. Already, there are populist anti-Muslim parties springing up in almost every single European country. While many of these parties are not White separatists by National Alliance standards, they are at least giving voice to a broadly pro-White sentiment, and are thus worthy of limited support.
It is, of course, interesting to see how the Jews in Europe are reacting to the Muslim threat. As many listeners will know, Jews in many European countries were behind the open borders immigration policies which have created these huge Muslim populations which now threaten both Jews and Europeans alike. As a result, some Jews are fleeing – mostly to America – but some are also going to Israel, although that number is fast declining. What makes the Muslim issue even more interesting is the fact that prior to the creation of Zionism, the Muslims and Jews were actually in alliance against the Europeans. When the Moors occupied Spain, for example, Jews were granted honored status in the Moorish Empire, and that time is even known in Jewish history as the Golden Age of Jewry in Spain. Jews held important political offices under the Moors, and when the last Moorish citadel, Grenada, fell to the avenging Spanish in 1452, no-one was surprised to find the Grand Vizier of Grenada to be a Jew, and not a Muslim at all. It also comes as no surprise, therefore, to find out that 1452 also marked the year that the Jews were expelled from Spain under pain of death.
Most of the Jews who fled Spain went to – you guessed it, the Ottoman Empire’s territory, and, after the fall of Constantinople, settled in that city when it was renamed Istanbul. In fact, Istanbul became the single largest Jewish city in the world for a good many years, and to this day contains some of the largest synagogues you will find outside of Israel or parts of America.
It was only when Zionism arose that the Jews and Muslims fell out with one another. As the Muslims realized that certain Jews actually wanted to take parts of Arab Muslim land for themselves, instead of focusing on their traditional victims – Europeans – so did the great conflict which we today see as the Jewish-Arabic wars break out. It is, however, important to realize that this conflict of Jew versus Muslim only dates from the last 100 years or so, whereas prior to that, these two self-declared enemies of Europe worked together hand-in-hand.
Where does that leave us, the White separatists in Europe and elsewhere? Simple: it means that we should always be aware of who our enemies are, and, if nay strategic alliances have to be formed to rid Europe of one or the other threat, then such alliances must only be done with the sure knowledge that unless the root of the problem is addressed – namely a Whites only living space – then all will be in vain.
Like Jan Sobieski then, we need to be prepared to put personal differences aside, and stand shoulder to shoulder with our White brethren who previously we might have been in conflict with, and be prepared to risk all for the common good. We also need to be aware that in Europe, Islam is currently the single greatest threat and has, in alliance with Jews, been hammering at that continent’s door for well over 1.200 years.
These are sobering thoughts. Let us learn the lessons of history. The time has come for White solidarity in the face of our greatest hour of need. I invite all of those who are interested in our race’s survival, to stop talking about it, and do something about it.
I’m Erich Gliebe, and thanks for being with me again today.
