“Islam or death!”
July 14, 1683: After more than 10 years of armistice, 120,000 Ottoman soldiers are standing in front of Vienna, the seat of the Holy Roman Empire, the city of the Golden Apple (symbol of paradise in Islamic mythology), the centre of Europe. A huge military train from Istanbul crossed the Balkans to Hungary and finally Vienna. Similarities to the Balkan route and the invaders (refugees) passing through them are purely coincidental. The sea seems to be threatening, with the blood red ottoman flags, decorated with a white sun and moon, which has become a symbol for the Islamic threat of Europe. The aim of these young men of the best age, who are ready for battle, is close to their grasp, it seems only a matter of time before they can take the plunge and plunder the political centre of European Christendom.
Only 16,000 men remain in the city to defend them – 5,000 of these defenders are voluntary citizens of the city of Vienna as well as Serbs and Croats, who fled to Vienna before the approaching of the Ottomans. Emperor Leopold I has already left the city to lead an army to relieve the city. These last defenders of Vienna are led by Rüdiger von Starhemberg as head of the city groups and Andreas von Liebenberg, mayor of Vienna.
They all stand united at the walls of Vienna to defend this last bastion of the West against the onslaught of the Ottomans: Vienna will not be a second Constantinople, nor a second Budapest or Sofia, all former Christian cities in which the Ottomans did brutal settlements, conversions and colonial policies, either with Turkish subjects or converted Serbs and Bosnians, that is what the defenders have sworn. The Ottoman Empire was no more and no less than the Islamic state of the 17th century.
The ultimatum of Kara Mustafa, the commander-in-chief and highest slave, at the same time, of the Ottoman Sultan, Mehmed IV, is unmistakable: Islam or death. Other cities such as Baden near Vienna, Schwechat or Hainburg had to learn what happened to people who came to the Ottomans: they were almost completely destroyed, the men slaughtered, the women raped and taken to slavery to Anatolia together with the children. Liebenberg and Starhemberg know that open borders and a policy of welcome culture are not an alternative in the face of impending conquest and Islamization. Unlike a mentally disoriented pastor’s daughter and a social-democratic mayor with a propensity for alcoholism, they know that there is a third alternative to Kara Mustafa’s demand: Resistance!
In the same way as terrorism in today’s Europe, one can and must still ask: What has all this to do with Islam?
Islam as the driving force for the siege of Vienna
The fact that the Ottomans had already advanced for the second time to the gates of Vienna was the result of a conflict lasting more than two centuries. Already in the 70s of the 14th century, the first irregular Turkish troops invaded Austria to rob slaves. The Ottoman Empire was dependent on a constant influx of slaves similar to the Islamic state of the present:
- 1) Sex and labour slaves for the Ottoman administration and the Sultan’s desires, as well as
- 2) young Christian boys who were subjected to brainwashing in Anatolia by the dervish orders to serve as fanatic Muslim elite warriors, Janissaries.
- 3) Prey for the irregular troops of the Ottoman Army.
The Ottoman expansion was driven by the orthodox understanding of Islam and its division of the world into Dar-al-Harb (the realm of war) and Dar-al-Islam (the realm of peace): the task of every religious Muslim, and especially the Sultan as the caliph, and the supreme spiritual master of all (Sunni) Muslims, was it to take the entire Dar-al-Harb under the control of the Islam through Jihad. The goal of the Sultan was clear: no more and no less than the World domination, and therefore he´d need Europe.
The Christians within the Ottoman Empire – second-class citizens
Life under Ottoman rule is a horror for the Christian population:
As a second-class citizen, who have to pay a tax just to stay alive, they are subordinate to the Muslim subjects and cannot carry any weapons. Especially the population in the border regions is often victims of the raids of irregular troops, not only the Tatars, but also Sipahi and Akintchi, who, as they pleased, carried away Christian subjects. Especially Hungary, which was under Ottoman occupation for more than 150 years, was “enriched” not only by mosques and bathhouses, but also by the loss of more than a third of its population and a triple division of the country.
At that time, there were already a few revolutions, especially in the nobility, who, under the new rule, did not want to lose their old privileges and therefore converted to Islam. The Hungarian candidate and Kurruzenfurst (on account of this, the Austrian exclamation “Kruzitürken!”) On the throne Emmerich Tököly also made a joint deal with the Ottomans to become king of hungary with Sultan’s grace. Thus, the European fraternal strife also contributes to the fact that not only compulsively -converted Serbs, Bosnians, Bulgarians and Greeks are participating in the siege of Vienna as Janissaries, but also Christian Europeans, who think that their rivals can be emptied.
The siege of Vienna…
The siege of the city itself becomes a herculean task for the defenders: opposite them is not only a numerically superior, but also the most technically advanced army in Europe. Turkish miners try to undermine the walls of the city by means of tunnels day and night, and then use mines to bring them down, while Ottoman guns bombard the city. Everywhere they try to counter: Turkish tunnels are placed opposite the tunnel, where they are confined to a narrow space. Wherever a breach arises in the city wall, this is closed by the city defendants with storms, battlements whose end looks like a pierced half-moon.
The fanatical resistance of the citizens and soldiers of Vienna is ultimately also morally supported: Marco d’Aviano, ambassador of the pope, animates by public masses and prayers the perseverance of the defenders. It was clear to all of them that the future of Europe will be decided in this city.
…and their relief
On the 12th of September, 1968, the army, which emperor Leopold had organized in numerous negotiations for the relief of Vienna: Germans from the Holy Roman Empire, Italians from the church state and Venice, Habsburg troops and last but not least Polish cavalry under the command of the Polish king Jan Sobieskis, who holds the command of the relieving army, will join forces with Russian and Ukrainian Cossacks to relieve Vienna of the Kahlenberg. 80,000 men are running down the slope of the mountain to the Ottoman army. The “Allahu Akbar!” of the Janissaries echoesa reverberative”Deus Vult!” of the entire European army. Their numerical subjugation made up for it by iron discipline on the battlefield, a virtue which not many other peoples share with us Europeans.
Among them is Prince Eugene of Savoy, who later became the central figure of the Austrian heroic age and icon of the Austrian Reconquista. Kara Mustafa cannot penetrate with full force to attack the relief army. Polish heavy cavalry broke through the Ottoman battlefields, their wing armorings scared the Ottoman army in fear, the slaughterers of Baden, Schwechat, and Hainburg had to give heels if they did not want to be slaughtered. The defenders of Vienna dare to make a thrust, from the ravelins and ditches they storm to the former siegeers. At this moment, when the Ottomans had to leave the battlefield and leave their guns and beacons behind, the people of the relief army, Jan Sobieski and Rüdiger von Starhemberg suddenly realized one thing: they wrote history.
The center of Europe was preserved in a joint effort against the grip of the Islam – the West was saved. The Ottoman Empire had been struck at the height of its power, with more than 50,000 members of the Ottoman troops remaining at the battlefield. As early as 1683 numerous fortresses in Hungary can be reconquered, the Reconquista of Hungary and the end of the dispute of the throne happened shortly afterwards, the collaborator Tökölly dies in Anatolian exile, not on Hungarian soil. In 1686, finally, the Holy Roman Empire, Venice, the Church State, Poland and the Muscovite Empire concluded the alliance of the “Holy League” in the knowledge that the Reconquista had to come to terms. The prelude of the Islam in Europe came to an end.
Our lessons from this event
While our ancestors were defending the advance of Islam in 1683, we, their great-great-grandchildren, are confronted with a renewed advance of this religion and the peoples from the Middle East. Today’s invaders do not come as soldiers but disguised as “refugees”. Not all have evil intentions – but many consider our continent as a colonial area, our women as their prey and our prosperity as their safe money. There is no longer the terror of the Tatar and Ottoman cavalry, but attacks by Islamic terrorist groups from Paris to Brussels and Würzburg. The goal is the same as at that time: to break our resistance, so that the Great Exchange and the colonization of Europe as well as the accompanying Islamization are held without resistance.
In the face of a corrupt elite of liberal politics, media and NGOs, the Tökölys of our time and their slogans for the justification of the Great Exchange (“We will manage that!”), we, as the activists of the generation identity and avant-garde of the people, have to make them recognize that there is a third alternative, for the old demand of Kara Mustafas, which today is again put to us by the IS: “Islam or death!”, namely the resistance!
The situation is anything but desperate – just like our ancestors in and around Vienna, we must now resume the will to resist and make our corrupt politicians together with their cynically imported “human capital” clear, that they are not welcome here. But more and more people are waking up in the face of the situation in Europe and the engagement of patriotic parties and movements like the generation identity, and they awake to the fact, that they are the grandsons of Andreas von Liebesberg, Jan Sobieski and Prince Eugene and the story has just been repeated. Not only the Turkish immigrants in Europe know that we are currently experiencing the Third siege of the Turks. Not only does Erdogan let Turks march in costumes of Janissaries in obscure parades in Istanbul, but we also know that 333 years later the same forces are coming back to our continent. The relief of Vienna in 1683 must be a consistent remigration policy in 2016.
We do not want to destroy the future of the economic immigrants and Angela Merkels – it is just our will that it should not take place in Austria, Germany or anywhere else in Europe, but rather as once Emmerich Tökölys in the beautiful Izmir or elsewhere in the Middle East.
This goal must be our full commitment as a defender of Europe, whether we are fighting for our future from Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Rome or elsewhere in Europe: From Paris to Rome – Refugees go home!
It is about our country, our Europe and our future. In 2016 there is no excuse for not being politically active – no bourgeois existence, no fear of losing left-winged friends, no false comfort. Because we have nothing left to lose except our identity.
