" Radical islam will win if we roll over and give up."

While Phil Greend has correctly diagnosed the disease and its implications for the Swedish society, it is not clear as to what line of treatment she has in mind for curing it. It is indeed, most unfortunate that in their ill-founded zest to be seen as the greatest champions of such enlightened values like liberty, multi-culturalism, and refuge for the oppressed and the persecuted, certain Western nations resorted to the policy of allowing indiscriminate immigration of muslim migrants into their respective countries. Being naive and uninitiated as to the different ways the islamists adopt to firstly gain an entry into open societies, and then, under the guise of being "victims" of religious, social, cultural, hatred, use the very 'open'ness of these societies as a tool to undermine the very values on which these societies rest, they are, perhaps, paying the price for the same.

It must, nevertheless, be a matter of great concern to all right thinking people all over the world. Let me remind those filled with pessimism on this score that the Continent has given a Charles Martel to history and it is inconceivable that what the muslims failed to achieve at Tours in 732 A.D. would come to pass in this age. The need of the hour, however , is to stem the tide of any further muslim immigration all over Europe. An exteme right-wing reaction to this islamic demographic invasion of Western Europe is very likely to emerge in the forseeable future, and political and social scientists, instead of decrying and denigrating it, would do well to understand its motivational factors.

Since most of the intelluctuals have adopted the (un)wise policy of "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" when it comes to islam and islamism, they would be well advised to stick to this same policy when the reaction to this evil makes itself manifest.!
