Wy does the West pamper Moslems? Let me answer

Reader comment on item: Islamic Law at Belmont U
in response to reader comment: Question to Mr Daniel Pipes: Why does the west pamper moslems

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Apr 28, 2006 at 14:44

My answer will start from Europe. Some countries- Italy and Spain- have abandoned traditional values and embraced La Dolce Vita and the culture of death. Not a single European nation save Muslim Albania has a birth rate that will provide it with the children to sustain the welfare state. Arabs and Africans must come to work and take care of Europe in her dotage. That is why Italy and Spain have allowed millions of Muslims to settle in their territory. Another reason: Europe needs petrol from Muslim countries. That is one of the reasons why France is so pro-Muslim. Then, there is natural gas from Algeria, another Muslim country.

Let us now talk about the rest of the Western world. North America: the USA don't want to be seen as Islamophobic. Canada is probably afraid of the same allegation. Australia: the Australians have a very powerful Muslim neighbour: Indonesia. That is why western politicians and the media pamper Muslims so much.
