Reader comment on item: Europe's Stark Options
in response to reader comment: Don't let us down

You missed my point Marc. I am angry about the attitudes of Europe's elites, but I think that we Americans are responsible for those attitudes. And I think that the notion that big daddy America will save Europe is likely to only further those beliefs.

I think it was either Boswell or Johnson who stated the case properly. 'Nothing concentrates the mind like the knowledge that one is to be hung in the morning.'

If there are Europeans willing to defend themselves then they should step forward and insist on immigration control, close monitoring of mosques and other terror centers, deportation of all so-called clerics who refuse to publicly renounce the war and conversion and apostacy sections of the Koran, and straightforward policies demanding integration or departure of the general muslim population.

As we converse, Muslims make up less than 10% of Europe's population. The very fact that non-Muslim Europeans think they need help is symptomatic of their refusal to grasp responsibility for their own fate and that of their children.
