Wow, sounds like the Europeans are really having some issues with Muslims over there. Claims of Muslims just sucking up welfare and not contributing to the productivity of the countries. Talk that seems to be spurred on by the recent murder of Theo Van Gogh
, a filmaker who was shooting an anti-Muslim movie.
Captain's Quarters has a very interesting post on what is going on in Europe regarding Muslims.
Peak Talk, a Dutch blog, has more on ramifications of the Van Gogh murder and the Dutch Cabinet declaring war on Muslim terrorism.
The Caretaker has an opposing view.
As I said in a previous comment, Europe is just starting to have their own "Muslim" problems. Roughly 25% of the Western European population are Muslim Immigrants, and potentially 5% of those are Fundamentalists who are inclined to be involved in terrorism or similar activities supporting Jihad.
And like the rabbit in Australia, the Muslim will become very unwelcome in Europe. This is starting to show in one of the most liberal countries in Western Europe, Holland, with the murder of Van Gogh and the hate crimes commtted following it.
And again, as I said, we can't do anything but watch. We must not become embroiled in the Europeans Immigration Policies . . None of our business . . BUT, it bears watching and we should heed the problem, and wisely control our own policies toward the same group, no matter it may upset the ACLU.
