Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn
in response to reader comment: Extending the challenge to all Muslims here

Submitted by Mary connor (Australia), Mar 1, 2007 at 09:15

Islam was spread by military conquest. Not by the attraction of its ideology, like Christianity. I believe that Islamists are dreaming of a second world conquest and the start of this is by claiming as rightfully theirs lands previously conquered by force. But times have changed and weapons have changed so it will be a much more difficult and bloody process. Certainly money is being used now as well, but how does Islam improve the quality of life of the general people, especially women.

Isn't the fact that so many leave Islamic countries to settle elsewhere a sign that their culture has failed them.?
