Dear Mr. Pipes,

I would like to apologize on behalf of Europe. Could you come to give a speech in Europe? We need people like you over here. What you have said is all true. However, you fail to identify the 2 main issues behind the problem:
1) left-wingers rule Europe
2) multiculturalism is the dominant ideology.

We cannot deal with the issue of European anti-Semitism if we fail to deal with multiculturalism. This new brand of anti-Semitism is a product of multiculturalism. It is the ideology of multiculturalism which is bringing Europe on the verge of collapse. Left-wingers have imposed multiculturalism on the majority of the people and any debate on multiculturalism is taboo. There have been quite a few incidents where people were beaten up for voicing their objections to multiculturalism. Left-wingers are prepared to use violence in order to prevent any debate on multiculturalism and they have resorted to violence in the past. We are not allowed to explore any alternatives to multiculturalism.

Is integration better than multiculturalism? Does it make sense to reject all alternatives to multiculturalism? Is it rational? Should other cultures be integrated into European society? These questions are taboo and ,those who raise them, can be intimidated and beaten up by left-wingers. All over Europe, violence has been successfully used against those who sought a debate on multiculturalism. Advocating integration has also been condemned and subjected to censorship. Left-wingers have successfully employed violence to curtail the debate on integration and the assimiliation of different cultures into European society. We are supposed to accept multiculturalism without raising any questions. Multiculturalism is a beautiful utopia; like all utopias it is also very dangerous. Take Lebanon. Lebanon was a multicultural society and it brought together Muslims and Christians. Lebanon imploded. Unless we open a debate on multiculturalism, we are predestined to see Europe implode. Integration could be an alternative to multiculturalism : we are just not allowed to debate it. Left-wingers have intimidated, beaten up, and even killed their opponents. We are afraid to express our opinions because we fear the brutal reaction of left-wingers. We fear for our own safety. I don't know about America. For Europe, it is already too late. Left-wingers have won.
