We drove them out before and we will do again

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn

Submitted by Will (United Kingdom), Nov 15, 2006 at 18:57

My grasp on history is not that good but around 1000 years ago southern spain was almost completely muslim and when the problem was realised all Europe was united under one banner and drove them out and during the middle-ages (and now even) Spain is one of the most Catholic countries in the world.

Countries in Europe (apart from Albania) are still mainly christian / atheist and history will repeat itself if islam tries to take over seriously. Unlike people from the Middle-East who just sit there and watch as crazed dictators run their country the European people fight for their freedom and what they believe in. For example most countries in europe got rid of their ruling monarchy a few hundred years ago or during WW1 and islam will collapse upon itself when these people fom the middle-east realise that THEY control their countries and that they can stick up for themselves.

I believe in Europe that if muslims begin to pose a real threat on our culture and society then we will act and drive them out and maybe one day the people in the Middle-East will wake up and revolt for their own freedom like we did a few hundred years ago.

and instead of people writing books about 'america alone' then if they truly believe that Europe is becoming a state of Islam, instead of trying to make america 'the last stance for freedom' or however you want it - why don't you actually do something and help Europe?
