Well then, as one who has little doubt about the reality of global warming (albeit largely because I dread having to educate myself on the matter, and just adopt the “smarter sounding” position), I take it that you’ll give me license to be more frivolous in my opinions about the “Muslim diaspora”?
While I’m not anticipating to find the Pyrenees to resemble Baluchistan any time in the next 10 years, I’d say that there’s little reason to doubt that Europe is going to continue to get “more Muslim” for quite a while to come (though ‘Muslim’ may not be the best way to describe it; Germany will get more Turkish, France more Maghrebish, and Britain more Pakistani-ish [that’s just a guess on my part]). People in and from most Muslim countries will continue to reproduce far faster than native Europeans, and the migration will only increase as the oil wells dry up and half the Muslim world finds itself without an economy.
Of course, Europeans (though there is no such thing as a European, in my opinion), as they become increasingly “acultural”, they lose the most potent motivations to reproduce and perpetuate their own cultures, ways of life, etc. Most people from Muslim countries still adhere to some sort of way of life, religion, etc. that they see as the right way, and are less malleable, I think, than Europeans. Just think, after the second war, it took to twenty years to effectively Americanize western Europe!
Has anyone on here read Bruce Thornton’s “Decline and Fall: Europe’s Slow-Motion Suicide”? I haven’t, but it seems interesting, and I’m planning too, as I have a masochistic fascination with the decline of such a magnificent civilization (from which I exclude America).
I think it must be admitted, though, that the decline of Europe has nothing to do with the Muslim immigrants. They’re just filling the vacuum. And, by the way, my guess is that much, even most of modern European antisemitism has something to do with the recent behavior of Israel. I’m also inclined to believe that it’s not quite as bad as the Haaretz or Jerusalem Post say it is.
