The Future of Europe

Daniels Pipes takes a look at the Europe’s Future and concludes,

    As columnist Dennis Prager notes, “It is difficult to imagine any other future scenario for Western Europe than its becoming Islamicized or having a civil war.” Do these two deeply unattractive alternative paths define Europe’s choices? It would appear so, but the decisive events that will resolve this question have yet to take place. The novelty and magnitude of Europe’s predicament make it difficult to understand, tempting to overlook, and nearly impossible to predict. Within the next decade or so, however, the current state of flux will end, the Europe-Islam equation will come into sharper relief, and the continent’s future will reveal itself.

  1. Re: “the novelty and magnitude of Europe’s predictament make it difficult to understand”;

    How difficult? The Europeans are running welfare states requiring Arab petroldollar wealth and a large work force component not participating in the 50 plus weeks of holiday plus family leave, like the rest.

    Re: “nearly impossible to predict”;

    How impossible? Are the Germans going to prohibit the consumption of beer to comply with the Turkish imigrants demanding Sharia?

    France just started to address its labor laws. Watch how the French introduce legislation. Wear body armor and a helmet while watching.

    Adultry a capital offense in the UK ? Arthur Koestler is laughing so loud…….

    Kol tuv,

  2. Most people on this blog know that DeGaulle of France abandoned Israel soon after the Six Day War (1967). It is fair to say, without becoming a religious fundamentalist, that the punishment that Europe will experience in the future was quite a direct result of the 1967 change in policy. Europe’s problems are not a result of unintended consequences. Simple armchair thought experiments could easily have predicted the outcome that we see today. DeGaulle chose evil and death and abandonment and now it is coming home to roost. People always suffer for their politicians’ errors. I feel sorry for the Jews, but the Europeans garner from me only a “gee, what the heck did you do?”
