One of the most important prelates in the Catholic Church in Hungary has warned that the enormous waves of migrants rolling into Europe are due in no small part to a Muslim “will to conquer,” by expanding their territory into the continent.
“Jihad is a principle for Muslims that means they must expand,” said Archbishop Gyula Marfi in an interview Wednesday. “The earth must become dar al-Islam, that is, Islamic territory, by introducing Shariah—Islamic law.”
The archbishop of Veszprém said that although there may be other motivations, the conquest of European territory for Islam plays a significant role in the unusual pressure to migrate to Europe.
“There have always been wars and environmental disasters, but the fact that there is now so much pressure on Europe cannot be a coincidence,” he said, adding that the Muslims’ “will to conquer” is also a key factor.
Beyond the migrants themselves, Marfi said that there has been an economic push, with financial support from Arab banks driving the migration from Muslim lands into Europe.
“They do not let them come into Qatar or the United Arab Emirates, but they give them money and incite them to immigrate here,” he said.
