Donna Meltzer says "Everything we are seeing today happened before. Not surprisingly, in much the same way. The only difference today is that technology allows these people to spread across the globe their network of hate much faster, easier, and "under the radar." Our "free country" affords them a safe haven to swell their ranks, spread their seeds, and infest our social systems."

And there's another difference. On every occasion that it has happened before, Western civilization realised the size of the threat it faced - unlike the PC-emasculated Western lemmings of today, and fought back with absolute vigour and held nothing back - like at Lepanto in 1571, Vienna in 1529 and 1683, and during the years of Austrian and Russian expansion during the period from 1683 to around 1774. There was no politically-correct Western media to hold Sobieski back in 1683.
