Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne

Submitted by George K (United States), Mar 28, 2003 at 14:14

The aging population pyramid of Europe, Japan, and North America means that those "westernized" societies will have to rely on immigrants for a lot of their services, and with the populations of the muslim countries of the Middle East doubling every 20 years, they will be the dominant force in the 21st Century.

I expect South America and Western Europe to see the greatest influx of immigrants from the Mid-East. As Islam spreads by immigration, there will be greater and greater emphasis on the concept of dawat al islam -- the preaching and proselytizing of Islam -- in the countries with which we are partners. (see: http://www.dawateislami.net/GENERAL/comm/GUEST/display.asp)

I recommend everyone get to know the basics of islam as soon as possible. Become aware of its history. And study population geography...

People like Halim can provide a great deal of information on what it will be like to live in a world like that.
