islam vs postfascism

Reader comment on item: Muslim Europe

Submitted by Tom Holbrook (United Kingdom), May 12, 2004 at 13:41

I imagine you feel the islamisation of Europe would be a bad thing. In fact, many people in the continent seem to agree, hence the increasing support for France's Front National, the UK's BNP, the Vlaams Blok in Belgium & so on. Of course, many have alleged that these organisations are racist in general & anti-semitic in particular.

Would the victory of Europe's various Hard Right movements be a better or worse outcome than its islamisation, from the US's perspective? The answer is far from clear to me.
