Throughout history, various civilisations have failed, even though they seemed so powerful and unbreakable. When we talk about our civilisation, we are talking about Western, European-American civilisation, which is based on the values of Christianity and the Enlightenment or modern science, and of which our nation and our country are a part. When we receive waves of illegal migrants, we forget that we Europeans are losing our identity.
There is a high probability that in the long run immigration will create countries that will be largely divided into either Christian or Muslim communities.
If European governments were prepared to restrict immigration from third world countries, this could be avoided. However, this would incur large costs for them. These costs include the direct fiscal costs of anti-immigration measures, labour shortages, the social cost of further alienating immigrant groups and lower levels of economic growth.
Excessive integration of foreigners is one of the reasons for the collapse of civilisation
If we look at the ancient Roman civilisation before its collapse, we can see that even in ancient Rome they eventually faced an aging population and declining birth rates. This problem was solved by granting citizenship en masse to foreigners, which resulted in the “barbarisation” of Rome. “Barbarian” in Latin means foreigner. And if we look at the real facts, we find that a very similar thing is happening through mass migration in Europe, in our country and partly in the USA. In Europe, more and more left wing politicians would tackle staff shortages, especially in less attractive jobs, with migrants. They also want to tackle pension reform in the same way.
But if we learn from the ancient Roman case and history, then we see that this is completely meaningless, since the excessive integration of foreigners is supposed to be one of the reasons for the collapse of ancient Roman civilisation. In most cases, citizens of EU Member States are aware that immigration from third world countries brings not only multicultural enrichment but also danger, as their culture is so very different from ours, European. Both cultures will find it difficult to become harmonious and coexist, as we have historically already witnessed on the Iberian Peninsula. Historian Darío Fernández-Morera, in his comprehensive study The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise, based on extensive documentation, refuted the hypothesis that Muslims, Christians and Jews lived in peace and harmony, and cast doubt on the positive effects of multiculturalism, which is indirectly fuelled by Al-Andalusia (Iberian Peninsula, as it was called by Muslim sources during the Muslim conquest of Spain). A country or nation that has a different culture from another will move away from its essence. The essence of alliances between superpowers are culture and civilisation. Today, cultural identity is an essential factor that determines allies, and a question of which side you are on is no longer important, the question who you are is important now. Every country must have an answer to this question, because this answer is also the cultural identity of a country and determines what position a country occupies and represents in world politics.

Huntington announced the clash of civilisations: “So far, the clashes in the Western world have been mainly conflicts between rulers, monarchs who wanted to expand their countries, strengthen their military and economic power, and especially increase their territory they ruled. We have mainly known wars between countries, and now the focus of international relations will be on the relationship between Western and non-Western civilisation. Clashes between civilisations will prevail. The dividing line between civilisations will become the battle line of the future. The clash of civilisations represents the last stage in the evolution of conflicts in the modern world.” The beginning of the EU dates back to 1957, when the Treaty of Rome was signed, but the identity of Europeans is old and has been shaped throughout history. Let us be aware that Europe is a continent that has established civilisation, and its members have developed modern values on which humanism is based.
