The Good News Is That Eurabia Won't Happen
The bad news is that another Holocaust will prevent it
.Don't let Europe's current round of playing pacifist dress-up fool you: This is the continent that perfected genocide and ethnic cleansing, the happy-go-lucky slice of humanity that brought us such recent hits as the Holocaust and Srebrenica.
The historical patterns are clear: When Europeans feel sufficiently threatened - even when the threat's concocted nonsense - they don't just react, they over-react with stunning ferocity. One of their more-humane (and frequently employed) techniques has been ethnic cleansing.
I'm not certain that Peters is right here; it does seem that the Europeans have greater problems integrating their immigrant populations than the US does. It's certainly one of the ironies that in the 1930s and 1940s many blacks felt more comfortable and accepted in Europe than they did in the United State; that may be changing.
Taking the opposite tack is Mark Steyn, and it certainly appears that he has the better of the argument
with this point about the Grandma suicide bomber I covered on Friday:An-Najar gave birth to her first child at the age of 12. She had eight others. She had 41 grandchildren. Keep that family tree in mind. By contrast, in Spain, a 64-year old woman will have maybe one grandchild. That's four grandparents, one grandchild: a family tree with no branches.
You know the problem is that there's no good outcome; just a question of which is worse. Either a new Hitler arises, or Europe falls under Sharia law.
