The fate of the Armenians under the so called secular Turks is a good model of what the descendants of those who fail to convert in Europe can expect if ever Islam rules there. More "efficient "and cold blooded at genocide even than the Germans later proved to be, the Turks killed 19 out of 20 Armenians in a couple of short years. And, going the Germans one better, the Turks stoutly continue to deny that it ever happened. It is an actual crime in Turkey to assert that nearly 2 million peaceable people suddenly disappeared.

The 1930's novel "The Forty Days of Musa Dagh" is a relatively painless way to get an idea of what tolerance means to the followers of "the religion of peace."

The idea of admitting Turkey to the European Union is as mad an idea as has ever been conceived.
