Reader comment on item: The Islamic States of America?

While I continue to hope for a widespread popular recognition of the threat which Islam poses to the West, I am beginning to wonder if Wolfgang Bruno's thesis may not unfold: a reactionary militant "fascistic" European opposition to Islam.

So far, Leftists have successfully contained European anti-muslim elements with "hate speech" laws and public indoctrination in tolerance, diversity and multiculturalism. But, will wider segments of the European population become aware of Islam's agenda and swell the ranks of "extremist" parties?

What happens if Islam's successful advances spark warfare, insurgency and terrorism in Western, Southern and Northern Europe? Should we look to the Balkans for some possible scenarios?
