Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?

Submitted by amy eagle (United States), Mar 9, 2010 at 17:50

The major problem is that European birthrates at below replacement levels; indeed Spain and Italy are
at 1.2 whereas at least 2.1 is needed to maintain the population. In contrast, Muslims residing in European
countries have very high birth rates, and in 50 years, will be dominant in number, without any war or terrorism
or fighting.
