Regarding bloodlines

Reader comment on item: Europe's Civilizationist Parties

I think it is important for ethnic groups in their historical lands to remain dominant. Bloodlines do matter. This is what the Dalai Lama, hardly a white supremacist, was getting at when he recently said that Europe belongs to Europeans. Remember that a couple of years ago he said that Germany cannot be an Arab country.

Had he said it could not become Syrian, someone would have countered that these Syrians would become German, as German as any other German. He said it cannot become an Arab country.

I imagine he feels Tibet belongs to ethnic Tibetans, not to people of Chinese descent.

What would happen to ethnic Estonians if they bring in countless Russians? If ethnic Estonians would be in the minority and ethnic Russians in the majority in Estonia, the former would lose their ability to determine their future. Serbia lost Kosovo due to Albanian immigration. What would happen to a future Kurdistan if they allow mass immigration from turkey and ethnic Kurds would become an ethnic minority in Kurdistan itself?

Ultimately, one cannot allow endless numbers to immigrate even if they play by the rules.
