Ethnic Apocalypse: The Coming European Civil War
â€œA confrontation has become indispensable if we are to resolve the problem, remediate the situation and free ourselves.â€
Guillaume Faye, Ethnic Apocalypse
This is a review by Andrew Joyce, Ph.D. of the last book written by the French “far-right” intellectual, Guillaume Faye, with the title of “Guerre civile raciale” (A Racial Civil War). It has a foreword written by Jared Taylor.
M. Faye sadly passed away in March 2019. He wrote this book knowing he had nothing to lose as he was dying anyway. It deals brutally with the nightmare that a growing number of European countries are gradually waking up to – the fact that when you have millions of Africans and Arabs, largely Muslim, of low IQ and with no record of stable civilisation, settle in White countries in numbers that are now outnumbering those of the native White population, then the result is not exactly going to be that everyone lives happily ever after.
Mr Joyce is in danger, in places in his review, of falling into the trap of summarising the book chapter by chapter, but that aside this review is essential reading for all genuine racial nationalists.

The celebrated French far-Right intellectual Guillaume Faye passed away in March, after a long battle with cancer, but not before leaving us a literary parting shot that deserves to be a bestseller. In his final book, Faye explores the demographic, cultural, political, and military degradation of France, drawing sobering lessons for the West as a whole. The book makes a number of stark and terrifying predictions that, when all current trends are taken into consideration, have an overwhelming probability of coming to fruition. Foremost among these predictions is that the West is now almost certainly destined to convulse with a savage and intense civil war (both civil and internal, both religious and racial) without parallel in the history of mankind. With all the dark candour one might expect from a dying man with nothing else to lose, Ethnic Apocalypse, or as it was published in French Guerre civile raciale (A Racial Civil War), is perhaps the most brutally frank, bitterly scathing, and searingly honest accounts of the current trajectory of the multicultural West that Iâ€™ve ever come across. The reader searches the text for euphemism, finding none. There are no evasions here; no duplicity in nomenclature. Faye doesnâ€™t speak of cultural differences, or religious incompatibilities. He has little time for talk of assimilation and integration. The problem, he declares, â€œis neither ideological nor even religious in nature, but, in fact, anthropological. And so is the solution. The coming war will involve people who have nothing to say to one another and who should never have been made to live together.â€ A little over 50 years after Enoch Powellâ€™s â€˜Rivers of Bloodâ€™ speech, Fayeâ€™s book is both a nod to Powellâ€™s prescience, and a chronicle of the nascent ebbs and waves of a crimson tide that now seems fated to engulf us all.
The volume opens with a heartfelt preface by Jared Taylor, who appears to have been appropriately affected by its contents and describes the text as â€œcertainly the darkest, bravest, and frankest book my friend has ever written. It is a brilliant analysis of the mortal threat to us of massive non-white immigration.â€ Arktos, the publisher of the English translation, then offer a brief note explaining the change in title from the â€œintentionally incendiaryâ€ French, pointing to the fact â€œthe original title would render this book a magnet to our contemporary censors, who would work under the curious pretext, no doubt, that any book which speaks of a racial civil war in its title must surely be advocating the same.â€ It is a credit to Arktos that they havenâ€™t changed anything other than the title of this book which, while not necessarily advocating for race war, certainly doesnâ€™t shy away from considering or even desiring the positive results that might arise from such an eventuality. As Arktos make clear, â€œmany of the ideas the reader will encounter herein are harsh and hard to look upon, but they are genuine and astute; they are a serious manâ€™s assessment of what he regarded as a coming emergency of continental, if not global proportions.â€ And with the conclusion of these preambles, explanations, and caveats, Fayeâ€™s final book gets underway.
In the first chapter, â€œDiagnosis Before the Storm,â€ Faye outlines the fundamentals of the problem facing Europe and those of European origin. He begins with a list of murders and atrocities committed in France, including the slaughter of a priest by Muslims during Mass and massacres in Paris, Nice, and other provincial French towns. He points to an â€œever-increasing criminality involving clearly identified perpetrators whose ethnic origins is often concealed by the official media,â€ and a â€œgrowing difficulty for the native population to coexist with African and Oriental immigrants who are increasingly aggressive, demanding and violent.â€ What surprises Faye is that â€œwe have not yet registered any defensive reaction on the part of this formerly valiant people or that of other European countries, let along the beginning of any sort of retaliation against Arab and black Muslims, who bear the sole responsibility for all of these crimes.â€ The response thus far has been that one â€œsnivels and proceeds to place candles and flowers where massacres have occurred,â€ something that the author attributes to both a loss of collective energy (the lower socio-professional classes have been wearied by incoming populations whose â€œcruelty remains unequalledâ€) and to a state that targets any identitarian awakening with repressive measures. Faye argues that Whites (he specifically uses the term throughout the text after stating â€œlet us state the facts as they areâ€™), are â€œleading miserable and exasperated lives, are weary of being deprived of their tranquilityâ€ but that â€œan unpredictable sparkâ€ may yet cause them in â€œa spirit of self-defence, to organise themselves and ultimately launch a counter-offensive.â€
Faye is unapologetic about speaking bluntly and specifically of race. He employs the term â€œas part of a sincere longing for accuracy.â€ Some people find the term disagreeable? The author responds:
Do you know what is really unpleasant, by contrast? Living your life surrounded by ten million, twenty million, or even a greater number of Africans and Arabs, with whom one never wanted to associate. What is very disagreeable indeed is acknowledging the thought that, soon enough, the people of our race, namely the Whites of Europe, will be a minority in their own lands. What is more unpleasant is our inability to describe the very horror of our situation without burdening our statement of the facts with foolish periphrases and politically correct words, all of which remain less expressive of what is crucial for us to say than of what one is required to say.
Again and again, Faye hammers home the racial reality of the our situation, and is biting and scathing in his descriptions of those who have flooded Europe. He describes a reality where â€œour peaceful French men and womenâ€ are â€œmocked, attacked, raped and killed every day by individuals belonging to non-European races.â€ These â€œforeign and belligerent racesâ€ have â€œcome to have their cake and eat ours.â€ They â€œwant to reap the benefits of Western prosperity without having to make the same effort we have made in order to enjoy it, while simultaneously retaining their own identity and hating us most openly. They perceive us as being foreign and will continue to do so; it thus seems fair to me that we should regard them in the same manner.â€ For Faye, â€œthese third-world immigrants are not worth a penny,â€ and African immigration to France, and more generally to Europe, â€œis an abomination and must be brought to an end as soon as possible.â€
Faye reflects for several pages on the novelty of race war, remarking that while Europeans may in the past have driven back invaders and occupiers as part of a Reconquista movement that ended with the liberation of Greece in the early nineteenth century, these invaders â€œdid not enjoy such demographic superiorityâ€ as they do in the present, and they were historically â€œperceived as foreign occupiers with their own armyâ€ rather than being embedded in our societies in the fashion they are today. Because of the overlapping elements (religion, race, and treason among Whites), Faye predicts that â€œthis war will therefore be characterised by a very high intensity resulting from the multiplication of its explosive causes, since the conflict will simultaneously be a civil and internal one, an ethnic one, a religious one and a racial one. An unheard-of event in Europe.â€
The author also remarks that the conflict is â€œprobably inevitable,â€ due to the â€œhuge and constantly accelerating wave of colonising immigrationâ€ and the fact most of these immigrants possess a â€œhatred combining resentment with a desire for revenge.â€ Tensions are building further because the secret services have designated the retaliatory actions of native groups, rather than Muslim or immigrant aggressors, as the main danger to French society, an aspect of what Faye calls the French stateâ€™s â€œCollaborationist Tropism.â€ This is part of a much wider problem â€“ the fact that in modernity â€œdemocracy imposes invasion upon peoples.â€ Citing Angela Merkelâ€™s flooding of Germany with millions of non-Whites, Faye remarks: â€œThe underlying purpose is for the system to impose upon ethnic peoples â€” upon Whites, to be perfectly clear â€” an invasion at the hands of foreign masses of illegal immigrants and to force them to accept the destruction of their own living environment and culture.â€ Parliamentary democracy, in reality a â€œputrid oligarchy,â€ is â€œguilty of paving the way for an ethno-racial civil war not only in Western Europe (beginning with France itself), but perhaps also in the United States and Canada.â€
Faye asserts that the worst possible progression would be that this mass invasion occurred â€œsmoothly,â€ but that we have instead encountered â€œterrorist violence, delinquency and nuisance.â€ This has made it more difficult to disguise the fact â€œthat a conflict with these foreigners is underway.â€ Conflict is therefore always preferable to â€œsurrender without fighting â€” a progressive agony characterised by demographic and cultural disappearance, population replacement and Islamisation.â€ Faye is adamant in his insistence that
A confrontation has become indispensable if we are to resolve the problem, remediate the situation and free ourselves. In this regard, these Islamist provocations, who purpose is to spark off a civil war, are dialectically positive for us Whites and perhaps even suicidal for them if the events result in our awakening. If one keeps pulling the sleeping tiger by the tail, it will awaken.
The book presents a racial civil war as potentially cathartic, solving â€œthe generally delinquent, criminal, hostile, provocative and parasitic behaviour of a large part of these populations who, in all areas of our daily life, render all cohabitation unbearable.â€ Faye argues:
It may turn out to be necessary to go through such events in order to salvage what is essential, because an ethnic and cultural war, in the event that we do emerge victorious, will rid us once and for all of the main problem, of the evil which, although never clearly formulated, is common knowledge to us all and has been gnawing at France and Western Europe: the immigration stemming from low-IQ Africa, the gradual colonisation of our territories, and the destruction of our identity. In short, our future disappearance from history books.
In the bookâ€™s next chapter, â€œThe Conquest of Europe is Underway,â€ Faye surveys the recent influx of millions of Muslims into Europe, and points to some of those â€œdegenerate whites and impudent Jewsâ€ who have orchestrated it and cheered it on.  He describes the current phase of mass migration as â€œmore important and much more serious than the two world wars of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 and Soviet Communism (1917-1991).â€ These migrants â€œhave no reason to be here at all yet are confident of their rights, turn out to be demanding and aggressive, never doubting the fact they shall remain unpunished, evade deportation and enjoy the assistance of both â€˜humanitarianâ€™ associations and the state itself.â€ The author condemns the role of the Catholic Church in both offering and soliciting â€˜humanitarianâ€™ aid for the migrants, and is clearly disgusted by the â€œcomplete traitorâ€ Pope Francis who is condemned in the text for his â€œcomplete lack of historical knowledge,â€ â€œTrotskyist views,â€ and â€œrather delirious and insane conception of Christian charity.â€ Faye also presents the example of Jacques Attali, the economist and political advisor, as a demonstration of â€œimpudent Jewsâ€ in action. He quotes Attali as writing the following for Lâ€™Express in June 2018:
The only solution is for us to understand, as soon as possible, that it is in our interest to massively develop this neighbouring continent [Africa] and help accelerate its demographic transition; to organise the coming of migrants to Europe; and to create the necessary conditions [on European soil] to welcome and integrate millions of people into our cultures upon their arrival from this cradle of humanity.
In a chapter titled â€œThe Omens of a Civil War,â€ Faye moves into an examination of instances in which low level ethnic conflict is already underway. This can be most clearly seen in the establishment of ethnic â€œno-goâ€ zones in many European towns and cities, and their role as a hotbed for violence against police. Faye statistics for injuries suffered by French police in the course of deliberate ethnic ambushes and more general ethnic delinquency are sobering, running into the thousands every year. For Faye, these areas are not just â€œzones of lawlessnessâ€ but in fact â€œinvaded areasâ€ that have been successfully conquered by foreigners, and are essentially no longer part of France. Although the security services have been successful thus far in preventing significant acts of French retaliation, Faye points to the June 2018 arrest of ten men and women (â€œfor the most part family men, with no criminal historyâ€) for planning attacks on mosques as an example of the fact â€œtensions are indeed on the rise, as the country gradually turns into a powder keg.â€ In the authorâ€™s estimation, if such attacks were indeed to be carried out, â€œit would unleash a civil war upon us once and for all.â€
The bookâ€™s third chapter, â€œThe Ethnocidal Project Targeting European Peoples,â€ examines in more detail how life in White countries is being fundamentally changed for the worse. Faye defines ethnocide as â€œthe destruction of a people through non-sanguinary, long-term and more pervasive processes, namely progressive immigration flooding; the destruction of oneâ€™s cultural identity and historical memory; repressive measures; spoliation; and, last but not least, the relegation the indigenous population to a lower status.â€ Western governments are complicit in the ethnocide of their native peoples by refusing to act even in the fact of â€œincessant neighbourhood riots,â€ â€œritualistic and mass-scale car arsons,â€ â€œoccasionally deadly attacks and ambushes targeting policemen, gendarmes, and firefighters,â€ â€œverbal or physical assaults committed against native French people,â€ â€œthe violent harassment of White women in the streets,â€ â€œacts of aggression perpetrated against doctors,â€ schools falling â€œinto the grip of daily violence,â€ and â€œthe open and raucous appropriation of public spaces, followed by that of entire towns.â€ Faye asserts that the state and associated elites are complicit in the ethnocide of the European peoples because they desire to create a â€œnew manâ€ (â€œa necessarily anti-racist and mixed-race type of manâ€), and describes the figures behind this effort as â€œcosmopolitan elitesâ€ and â€œcollaborationist court Jews.â€ Macron is specifically denounced as a Kalergi-praising product of â€œglobalist support and Jewish funding.â€
In predicting the battle lines of the future civil war, Faye asserts that the primary aggressors in Europe will be Muslims, with the main Muslim organisations coming to direct the activities of ethnic rioters throughout France. In the early stages, this camp will be assisted by collaborators in the form of leftist â€œjournalists, officials or politicians at all national and local levels,â€ before support and financial aid is further provided by Morocco, Algeria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other countries â€œengaged in the Islamisation and colonisation of France.â€ Against this coalition, Faye posits that a substantial element of the police and gendarmerie will move into a retaliatory mode, joining â€œa growing number of exasperated Frenchmen with no ideological or political connections with the far Right, who could organise themselves into neighbourhood-based self-defence groups or structured militias.â€ After initial skirmishes, Faye asserts that a specific response to collaborationist efforts would be required and, in his discussion of â€œthe origin of pro-migrant and anti-French elites,â€ Faye doesnâ€™t shy away from explaining that Jews are a prominent collaborationist element in French society:
It must also be said that in both rightists and leftist parties, though admittedly far more often in the leftist spectrum, one encounters Jewish MPs, ministers, general councillors and mayors who, for the most part, define themselves as â€˜citizens of the worldâ€™ or quite simply Jewish rather than French. This is a rather unpleasant fact, since the nation they are supposed to love and serve with a patriotic heart is actually our own â€¦ As soon as the fate of Israel becomes more important than that of France in the words of the journalists, thinkers and politicians that are supposed to represent and faded our country, the result is a serious conflict of interest, one that I cannot fail to highlight.
The bookâ€™s fourth chapter, â€œForeign Occupation,â€ is an extended indictment of multiculturalism from the point of daily, widespread ethnic delinquency. Faye rails eloquently against the â€œvindictiveâ€ state of mind of â€œthe young Afro-Muslim population,â€ who comprise â€œentire groups of seasoned and trained juvenile delinquents that fear neither the police â€” whose members are highly demotivated, discouraged and spiritless â€” nor a lax justice system that finds itself unable to keep pace with them.â€ We learn that in France â€œ90% of all minors and young adults involved in all conceivable forms of criminality stem from Afro-Arab immigration.â€ The young delinquents organise in a â€œprimitive tribal pattern,â€ and â€œshall form the shock battalions of an already brewing racial civil war.â€ The majority of the White victims of these urban occupying tribes are young women, provoking Faye to remark â€œIn all cultures, the normal, vital reflex is to protect oneâ€™s women against any and all sexual assaults committed by foreigners. This, however, is not what we are witnessing in todayâ€™s Western Europe, whose members have now surrendered to complete mental weakness â€” it would indeed be racist and entirely reprehensible for us to ensure our womenâ€™s protection.â€ Faye rejects this weakness. For him, the matter is simple: any idea of a peaceful, multicultural living together with these groups is an irrational sham. â€œThe only programme that one could envisage in their case is one where they would all travel back across the Mediterranean, regardless of any eggs broken along the way. A convivial living-together is only possible when it involves populations that are biologically and culturally related. Anything else is but a sham. We do not wish to live with these people. Period.â€
The next two chapters focus specifically on the Islamic nature of the mass migration into Europe, and the Islamisation process as a whole. In Fayeâ€™s view, â€œIslam shall act as the sole banner, the sole emblem for the rallying, mobilisation and identification of non-European populations. It shall embody what some fight for and others against, even if â€” and because â€” what lies under its din and behind its blazing shadow is a haunting biologico-racial melody.â€ Faye clearly despises Islam, calling it â€œthe poorest and the most mediocre of all human religions,â€ and jihad little more than a â€œform of delinquency.â€ He highlights the existence of an â€œIslamosphereâ€ occupied not just by the Muslims themselves but by â€œFrench people who have chosen the path of collaboration.â€ These are leftists who â€œspread the idea that Muslims embody the new image of the oppressed,â€ and work in concert with Muslim, Black, and Jewish lobbying groups to â€œintimidate French people and discourage any and all French criticism and resistance against immigration invasion and Islamisation.â€ Such collaborators, including the Jews Edgar Morin and Emmanuel Todd, whom Faye briefly profiles, are â€œdriven by a fierce hatred of France, its culture, its traditions, its deep-rooted provincial population, its ethnic people and â€˜little white folk,â€™ described as a bunch of racist hicks,â€ and have â€œinfiltrated our associations, our national education system (a very serious development indeed) and the media.â€ Although many of the immigrants are anti-Jewish, presenting something of a paradox, Faye reminds us that these Jewish activists have not â€œjoined the pro-immigrational cause from rational reflection, but due to an emotional and irrational surge of hatred for their native France.â€ He continues, referring also to irrational support for Islamisation from feminists and the broader Left:
What particularly fascinates these dumbstruck Islamo-leftists, these defrocked Trotskyists, these intellectuals nursed in the lap of cultural Marxism, these old communists or crypto-communists that still hold Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin in high regard and venerate Mao, Pol Pot, the violence of the Reign of Terror (1792-1793), the Paris Commune of 1871 and the crimes committed by the Spanish Republicans, is something consubstantial with Islam, something that they have in common with the latter and that is the focus of their deference and adoration â€” the tropism of fanatical violence and totalitarianism, which remain correlated and inseparable. That is what they have been missing since the disappearance of â€˜genuineâ€™ communism! And what Islam is now offering them is a similar dish, served bloody and on a silver platter.
In chapter 7, â€œAs the Catholics Lose their Footing,â€ Faye takes aim at Pope Francis and institutional Catholicism which has acted as â€œthe ferocious enemy of the ethnic identity of white Europe and the objective accomplice of the migrational invasion conducted under the banner of Islam.â€ Pope Francis is described as â€œboth a traitor and a madman.â€ Particularly concerning is the existence of large numbers of otherwise right-wing and traditionalist Catholics who nevertheless waver on matters of race. For Faye, this is an unforgivable positions that threatens to place such Catholics (â€œprisoners of their own intellectualism and of an annoying sort of biological relativismâ€) in an impossible situation in the eventual civil war. Faye explains:
It is all quite simply, actually: ask any patriotic Catholic if an African who also happens to be a patriot and has recently converted to Christianity should be sent home in the event of a mass de-migration process that would follow our sideâ€™s lightning-like assumption of power. You will see how long they hesitate before giving you an answer. There we have it! No, seriously now, hesitations of this order are no longer acceptable. We have no time to waste on such childishness. Foreigners are DIFFERENT FROM US and must return to their homeland as soon as possible.
The only dogma of concern to Faye is the simple fact that â€œin order to win a racial civil war, one must first be racist, regardless of whether one participate in it willingly or reluctantly â€¦ A racial AND civil war will involve violence, as well as terrible tragedy and injustice â€¦ An indigenous person must, however, choose other natives over all foreigners, rather than prefer some allogeneic â€˜brothers in Christ.â€™ In their desire to soften the hearts of the French people fighting them, many immigrants will attempt to play this card.â€
The bookâ€™s eighth chapter, â€œThe Jews Amidst the Racial War,â€ is the one I am most ambivalent about, and perhaps the weakest in an otherwise outstanding volume. To begin with, it is one of the shortest chapters, and one senses that Faye was uneasy or uncomfortable tackling the subject â€œhead on,â€ rather than in the asides and minor profiles he scattered throughout the book. The basic problem, as I see it, is that while Faye was rightly scathing of those who are so anti-Jewish (in a distorted fashion) that they see Muslims as their allies (he names Alain Soral as an example), he failed to see that he had actually fallen into the mirror image of that problem, despising Muslims with such tunnel vision that he came to see, and search for, Jews as allies â€” despite all the evidence of Jewish collaborationist activities that he himself would amass and discuss. This isnâ€™t to say that Faye doesnâ€™t hit some high notes in this chapter. He remarks that â€œthe Jewish soul finds itself continuously torn between exacerbated particularism and a universalistic sort of tendency; between its ghettoised spirit and its conquering mindset.â€ He rightly concludes that â€œthis results in a number of contradictory features: their seeking of peace and security while relishing the idea of being persecuted; their aspiration to dominate and proud acknowledgement of their intrinsic superiority, alongside their embracement of the image of a small people that is perpetually under threat.â€ But, showing remarkable ignorance of Jewish opinion polls and voting patterns that suggest overwhelming political affinities among Jews as a whole, he believes, foolishly in my opinion, that these Jews, â€œCourt Jews,â€ can be quarantined from the rest of the Jewish population who are potential allies.
As for any idea that a Jewish Question exists:
There is, however, a serious analytical mistake made by numerous anti-Semitic writers, especially Kevin B. MacDonald â€” that of focusing on the psychological traits of Jewish intellectual movements that are in favour of cosmopolitanism, and of confusing these traits with the behavioural and mental patterns of the Jewish ethnicity â€¦ A growing proportion of â€˜common Jewsâ€™ are now rejecting both anti-racism and cosmopolitanism, partly in response to the Muslim-Arab invasion.
But Fayeâ€™s retort to MacDonald can only be regarded as, at best, anecdotal, and is flatly contradicted by, for example, my own analysis of Jewish representation in contemporary refugee and migrant organisations. MacDonaldâ€™s theory is also not of â€œthe psychological traits of Jewish intellectual movementsâ€ (can intellectual movements have psychological traits?) but that a group evolutionary strategy in which the behavioural and mental patterns of the Jewish ethnicity can be observed in such movements. Itâ€™s clear that Faye was confused, and I suggest that his tunnel vision on the Muslim Question was the reason why. We might further consider his comment in the appendices of the book:
Judeocentrism [belief that a Jewish Question exists] is a hollow obsession whose causes, meaning and goals cannot be clearly defined. There are some who will claim that the reason I say this lies in my fear of the Jewish lobby, but I am not afraid of anything and am going to die soon. Over the years I have come to understand that the anti-Semitic reduction of all our current problems to the Jewish question is the most striking form of contemporary conspiracy theories.
And so, rather than reduce all of our current problems to the Jewish question (when has anyone on this site neglected to refer to Muslims, Blacks, or broader social decay including the failings of our own people?), Faye decided to reduce all of our current problems to the Muslim question. I must be clear in that I firmly believe that Faye is not guilty here of subversion or fear of the Jewish lobby. If I did, I would hesitate to recommend this book. Instead I see a paralysis-like error in thinking, brought about by a quite understandable reaction to the stark and visible Islamisation of France. This error (commonplace in countries with large and growing Muslim populations) comprises a small element of this excellent book, a few pages in a text more than 200 pages in length, and is in many places in the text quite contradicted by the â€œJudeocentricâ€ material Faye himself cannot help but refer to. But I would neglect my duty as a reviewer for this website if I did not make it clear that one must have to flexibility of mind to be aware of all facets of the existing problem, and to avoid Fayeâ€™s potentially dangerous habit of seeing allies where they simply do not exist.
But this is a book about racial civil war, not the Jewish Question, and in the final three chapters Faye returns to this theme with a vengeance, producing some of the best content of the volume. In â€œOur Law Enforcement Organisations Are at the End of Their Rope,â€ the author explains that French police are already at the frontline of the earliest phases of the racial civil war. He relates a number of infuriating anecdotes, including that of a police officer disciplined and demonised for shooting an African in the leg to avoid being beaten to death by a 15-strong African gang, but particularly horrifying is the brutal June 2016 murder of a police couple, slaughtered by Arabs in their own home, in front of their child. Brushed under the carpet by the media and authorities, Faye sees the incident as a â€œbarbaric assassinationâ€ that â€œtakes on the symbolic meaning of a declaration of war, one that is obviously both ethnic and racist in nature.â€ Due to the refusal of the establishment to act in a rational manner against racial criminals, French police are resigning in large numbers, with almost 3,000 quitting the police force in 2017. Faye argues they â€œmight end up joining a potential Popular Resistance in the coming civil war against the Occupation and its collaborators.â€ The rest, he asserts, â€œwill have no difficulty in choosing sides.â€
Chapter ten, â€œRace and Racism â€” At the Heart of the Coming Clashes,â€ concerns the total destruction of White lives under multiculturalism. Faye explains:
Maliciously targeted by Le Monde, Liberation, Mediapart, Telerama, and France Culture, these â€˜petty Whites,â€™ i.e. our people and indigenous lower classes, have been forced to embrace ethnic coexistence, an artificial living-together that our leaders themselves do not even practice. This foolâ€™s bargain also implies a blatant disregard for democracy at the hands of this shitty republicâ€™s governments â€” a republic that has, since 1974, been resorting to decrees to impose an immigration invasion upon the French people, going against the latterâ€™s wishes and corrupting their dreams of tranquility.
Whites are saturated with the ideology of anti-racism which â€œis completely contradictory as a result of its bias and tendency to overvalue â€˜coloured peopleâ€™ to the detriment of Whitesâ€ thereby contributing to â€œthe profound racialisation of our societyâ€ and proving an â€œaggravating factor in an ethnic civil war characterised by its racial and racist dimensions.â€ The increasing obviousness of racial antagonism in our societies is masked only via the efforts of Marxists in academia, government, and media who produce a steady stream of propaganda
for the sole purpose of intellectualising, blurring and thus rendering unsolvable the daily problems experienced by our French natives, who are forced to live among non-Whites â€¦ Our rulers impose immigration upon each and every one of us, as sociologists, psychologists, philosophers and other accomplices are seen on television in their fancy clothes and lovely little brown-nose glasses, telling us that it is all actually a blessing. The process of ethnic replacement is underway, but all is well, no problemo.
In the eleventh and final chapter, â€œHow the War Shall Unfold â€” Possibilities and Predictions,â€ Faye uses the material discussed thus far to build a model of how a racial civil war will begin and proceed in France, and other nations in Europe. This is a thought-provoking and sobering piece of work. A brief summary here would inevitably do an injustice to Fayeâ€™s well-developed sequence of thought, but Faye certainly sees the origin of a future conflict in police confrontations, either involving Muslims claiming police brutality in response to their heightened delinquency or â€œfollowing the death of some Black African scum.â€ Rioting is viewed by Faye as having every potential to bleed into sustained guerrilla warfare and, if it were to be prolonged long enough, Faye sees the potential for Antifa (â€œleftist-anarchist troublemaker groupsâ€) to join forces against the police. The alliance will be short-lived since collaborators in the race war, even if the ethnic faction wins, will â€œnot be given the position they hope for in this future society. Instead, what awaits them is death, humiliation, beatings and a state of modern slavery.â€
Faced with an escalation of violence, including massive Islamic terrorist attacks funded and supported by Muslim countries, the only hope for Europe is that such events cause a shock â€œstrong and traumatic enough to reverse mentalities.â€ In fact, Faye argues that this is the primary condition for possible victory, without which we are fated to slow replacement and ultimate defeat. He stresses the same precondition for the United States, which he warns will endure â€œsevere turmoil, perhaps even partitions, in the course of the next century.â€
Faye reflects for some time on the possibility that we would suffer defeat, and ponders what would become of the European peoples in the eventuality. I donâ€™t want to linger on that here, though I encourage all those reading this review to read the book and let this particular section urge them on to renewed efforts for our cause. Instead, here, I want to focus on his more optimistic conclusion, â€œThe De-Migration of the Afterwar.â€ Here the author offers a vision of White victory. He posits that the racial civil war would â€œthrough its unique violence, turn into an unprecedented collective trauma whose memory will echo across the centuries.â€ In other words, multiculturalism would never again be repeated by our descendants. There would be a â€œmassive repatriation of African and oriental populations to their countries of origin â€¦ It must be made possible, and must take place and commence very soon, because it is both necessary and vital â€¦ Let me state things clearly: whether willingly or by force, they shall indeed leave. This is not only my promise, but also my prognosis.â€
Despite his error on the Jewish Question earlier in the book, I leave the last words of this review to Guillaume Faye, who returns to the theme, despite himself and with wisdom, to close his magnificent book â€“ a book I recommend to all readers of this site, and to whoever may encounter this review elsewhere:
These anti-racist and anti-White leftist Jews will have to watch their backs when the wind turns â€¦ They will have to consider the option of returning to the land of their ancestors once the just anger of European identitarians allows the latter to cleanse not only France, but also every other part of the West. This is not a threat, but a piece of advice.
