Europe's submission to Islam

Here's a worthy follow-up to Gregory Davis's op-ed on thinking about Islam. It comes in the form of a dire warning from Paul Belien, writing in the Brussels Journal:

The German author Henryk M. Broder recently told the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant (12 October) that young Europeans who love freedom, better emigrate. Europe as we know it will no longer exist 20 years from now. Whilst sitting on a terrace in Berlin, Broder pointed to the other customers and the passers-by and said melancholically: “We are watching the world of yesterday.”

The reason, Broder is quoted as saying, is that Europe is turning Muslim, and its left-wing secularist culture would prefer to submit rather than fight. The rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism, Belien writes, stems from the same mindset: "They hate them [Israelis and Americans] because they are afraid that the latter will endanger their lives as well. In their view everyone must submit."

This piece is alarming--and excellent. Be sure to read it.
