The Islamic population time bomb

Reader comment on item: Frontpage Interview: Daniel Pipes

Submitted by Jonathan D. Safren (Israel), Dec 16, 2003 at 12:28

While I enjoyed reading the Frontpage Interview with dr, Pipes, I did not see any reference to the problem, already acute here in Israel, growing ever more acute in Europe, and just beginning in the United states, of the Muslim population problem. The Muslim and especially Muslim Arab birth rate is very high, and this, combined with Muslim immigration, means that some cities in Europe will soon have a majority Muslim population. I believe having read that the Netherlands has a 15% Muslim population, and France has 6 million Muslims, about 10% of the population. It is no coincidence that France has the most anti-Semitic incidents of any European country.
I would have expected Dr. Pipes to raise the possibility of governments, in Europe, at least, limiting immigration from Muslim countries in self defense.
