A fascinating lecture from Dr. Peter Hammond, the renowned Christian activist pastor from Cape Town, South Africa. He argues that civilizations commit suicide when they abandon their faith and allow immigration, and that the two are linked, citing many examples throughout history. It is indisputable that the two phenomena are occurring now in the West.
What he explains here about Islamic immigration into Europe is astounding.
Hammond is remarkable, in how well he speaks, in the depth of his knowledge, and in what he has achieved through his activism. He is well worth paying attention to. His bio and links to other sermons follow below.
You can follow all of his talks and sermons on the excellent Sermon Audio, the leading site on the internet for conservative pastors. You won't find any liberals on Sermon Audio.

Often travelling by off road motorbike, Peter has travelled hundreds of thousands of kilometres to deliver Bibles to persecuted Christians in Africa and Eastern Europe. In the course of his missionary activities, Peter has been ambushed, come under aerial and artillery bombardments, been stabbed, shot at, beaten by mobs, arrested and imprisoned. On some missions he has flown far behind enemy lines to the Nuba Mountains in central Sudan with tons of Bibles, books, medicines and relief aid. He has walked throughout the war devastated Nuba Mountains showing the Jesus film in Arabic, proclaiming the Gospel, training pastors and evading enemy patrols.

Peter has a strong commitment to Christian education, having helped to promote Christian education and home schooling in South Africa for over 29 years. He and his wife Lenora home schooled their four children and help provide Christian school textbooks through their Christian Liberty Books ministry.

Peter has also helped sponsor Bible colleges and Christian schools in Zambia and Sudan. He is involved in mobilising support for Christians suffering in Zimbabwe and in providing tons of relief aid for victims of communism in Zimbabwe.
Peter is regularly involved in personal and literature evangelism in the streets and in the townships. Since he was converted in 1977, Peter has maintained a regular practice of going in to some of the busiest, poorest and most neglected areas to conduct mass literature distribution, film evangelism and personal one-on-one evangelism and discipleship. In squatter camps, shanty towns, inner city ghettos, in bus and train stations, in prisons, military bases and hospitals, he has continued to engage in Evangelism and Discipleship.
