Europe is already Islamized

Reader comment on item: A Critical Moment For Turkey
in response to reader comment: STATE DEPARTMENT GETS IT ALL WRONG ON TURKEY AND ITS EU CANDIDACY

Submitted by Pat (United States), May 17, 2007 at 11:55

Europe is already Islamized. Turks were welcomed to Germany in the years after WWII, when Germany's male population was decimated and workers were needed to rebuild the country.

The other European countries that had colonized Africa and the Middle East welcomed Muslim immigration from their former colonies in order to maintain the necessary population to fund social welfare programs. It happened slowly but now the European Islamic community has reached critical mass and it is using its political power and Western notions of political correctness to delegitimize the leaders of Europe and the US.

Islamization has already occurred. It can't be reversed unless we are willing to defend our own culture and history. Turkey is incidental to this fight. Multiculturalism is our foe. Is Europe's heritage worth preserving? Apparently not, at least not nearly as important as the preservation of the welfare state.

You ask why Bush and the State Department are making nice with the anti-Christian Left and with the Wahhabists. Well, he has been trying to fight them for the last five years and has been consistently branded a war criminal. He has been excoriated for not "talking to our enemies". He has heard this not just from Europeans but from the Pelosi crowd as well. Now he's talking and that's still not good enough.

Why is the secular Left in Europe siding with Islamists? Could it be because the US is on the other side?

What can Bush and the State Department do when Europeans are bent on self-destruction? What does it matter which side we choose? EU membership is none of our business. The Europeans will do as they please, and so will Turkey.
