The Caliphate of Europe

Reader comment on item: The Caliphate: Updates

Submitted by Joe Keysor (Oman), Mar 2, 2006 at 11:43

Having seen a number of articles and essays on the increasing dominance of islam in Europe, I thought I would like to make a few comments of a sort that I have not seen elsewhere.

Turkey, Syria, and North Africa used to have a strong Christian presence many centuries ago, and now that has all but died out and Islam is dominant. What if the same thing happens in Europe eventually?

When I read that Europeans are more worried about homophobia and random comments against homosexual marriage than they are about the inability of Jews to walk the streets safely, I have to wonder if Europe even deserves to survive.

Has anyone ever said that one of the biggest problems was feminism? It is feminism and women's liberation that make women think it is beneath them to have children. It is too hard, too boring, too much responsibility to raise children - it is much easier to have a job, hence the declining birthrate, hence the need for workers which is met by multitudes of Moslems being brought into the country.

Oh well, if Europe does go under in the next few decades, there is nothing I can do about it and I won't be here to see it. If the Europeans aren't going to preserve their way of life, I won't worry about it - and what, precisely, is it about European culture today that is even worth keeping? Freedom to run around naked on the beach and live immoral and decadent lifestyles with no higher aim or purpose?

The Europeans have rejected Christianity - let them have Islam.
