Reader comment on item: Muslim Europe

Submitted by dante (Canada), May 11, 2004 at 17:42

Since the islamic hordes first set foot in Spain circa 710 A.D. , europe has had a muslim population. Mostly, the presence of muslims in europe has meant war and bloodshed, with perhaps brief periods of helping the natives attain lost aspects of their stolen civilizations. Today, for the first time in history, muslims are entering europe not as conquerors, but as immigrants who however still retain a load of contempt for the other because the other has not been decieved by muhammed's lies.

That europe, with all its shortcomings, could be overrun by the astounding underachievers of the islamic world is just slightly condescending. Little jewish Israel with its 5 million pop can withstand the sea of muslims in its neighbourhood, then I think that europe with a 4% pop that are islamic should be able to hold back the masses at the gates.
