Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Jonoa Retriloma (United States), Dec 8, 2002 at 21:04

There are certainly fanatics in Europe and America but they're not necessarily Muslim. Correspondents to this web site bend the truth or disregard it altogether.

"A swede" laments about change in suburbs of Swedish cities. My advice: get over it. It's part and parcel of globalization. You benefit from it by being able to purchase electronics and other goods quite cheaply, not to mention in diverse other ways. Second, your country needs these people, or will, at some point, and this message is aimed also at the alarmist correspondent who, spuriously imagines a stealthy infiltration of Europe by Muslims. The real delusion is that Europe does not need immigration and immigrants; If current birth rates continue in most Eurozone countries, economies will contract.

...Lastly, Pipes asserts that irrespective of whether threats by Muslim groups are real or perceived, Danish Jews feel threatened. That is nothing: Jews worldwide, even in America. have a sense of paranoia totally out of proportion to the threat they actually face. In fact, the greatest threat to world Jewry is assimilation.
