A more moderate path

Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?
in response to reader comment: Battle of Europe: Stopping Islamic Takeover of Europe - Resistance is Still Isolated. Systematic Resistance is What Will Work

Singha - you wrote "Taking on Islam is going to be the fight of the century; and it involves using all the tools under our arsenal. There are no easy options. The Islamists are extremely capable and underestimating their threat or wishing them away will be foolish."

There is a far more moderate option which I believe can and will be followed. Islam is not a serious immediate future problem as long as Muslims do not come to make up more than small minorities in the world's non-Muslim nations. The immediate, and immediately workable, cure then is to slow and eventually stop all immigration of Muslims to non-Muslim nations. The majority Muslim nations have already proven themselves unable to advance into modernity, so they will inevitably fall further and further behind as the rest of the world advances technologically. Those will oil revenues will eventually squander that revenue and/or see their populations increase to the point where they fail to have enough revenue to continue to paper over their failure.

Watchful waiting will work as long as we cease the insane policy of importing people who want to kill and/or dominate us all.
