Eurabia

Reader comment on item: Syria, Security, Migration, and Eurabia: An Interview

Submitted by Kyle F (United States), Dec 9, 2017 at 14:25

On the subject of whether or not the mass Muslim migration to Western Europe was a sinister conspiracy or just a well-intentioned mistake, I always remember one piece I read from the Norwegian commentator Fjordman. He basically said that it was both; the two aren't mutually exclusive.

Certainly many in the West supported multiculturalism with the best of intentions, as a Utopian vision of peaceful cultural integration--and just as certainly some in the West advocated multiculturalism and mass Muslim migration as a means of destroying/replacing Western civilization. It was probably 12 or 13 years ago that he wrote that, and I think it still rings true.

And now these many years later, I think you can add a third category: people who understand that mass Muslim migration to Western Europe was a disastrous mistake, but don't see any real solutions or any way out. So now they just seek to mitigate conflict and violence as long as they can by stifling any speech or discussion that illuminates the scope of the situation.

Good third category. Facing the problems will have ugly implications for the quality of life.
