Eastern Europe to new save haven for Secular Europeans

Reader comment on item: Who Will Write France's Future?

Submitted by Frederik (Germany), Jun 14, 2016 at 05:34

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I live in Germany and I am 28 years old. Things here aren't quite as bad as in France, luckily. However, high security measures similar to Israel will become normal all over Western Europe, I believe. Houllebecq says, atheistic, non-patriarchical soceties are not able to survive. I do not share this view. I think on the contrary, that islamic, patriarchical societies display an unsustainable growth of population which they are allowed to partially "dump" in Europe. If they would be forced to manage it on there own, there would be a catastrophe.

In the long run, I think there will be a strong political divide between Western and Eastern Europe due to Islam. Eastern Europe could become something like the save haven for secular Europeans. We see first signs of this movement as some Germans are starting to move to Hungary (See this report from German State Media from May 2016: https://youtu.be/d5Az-aq_Bjo ).

This is an interesting and (to me) novel thesis.
