Even the Europeans Are Starting to Get Wise

I don't want a war of civilizations, although I fear we're on our way if not engaged in one already. And I don't want to quarantine the whole of the Islamic world and let it stew in its own hatred and backwardness until it produces a decent civil society-- which, historically speaking, could take 200 or more years.

But Muslims cannot allow large numbers of their faith to support psychopathic race-murder and then expect that our patience for this savagery will continue forever.

One of Holland's most popular political figures is calling for a five-year ban on non-Western-- i.e., Muslim -- immigration into his country. And I for one can't say I blame him.

It's a mistake to confuse a naive faith in the talismanic power of "tolerance" and an extreme PC attitude for actual weakness. It is weakness, yes, and it does allow those who would exploit PC nonsense to get away with literal murder. But only for a time. American timidity was a temporary condition, not an enduring one, and perhaps so too is European timidity and appeasement.

The Europeans have been virulently xenophobic and savage themselves in their past. Islamofascist provocateurs should bear that in mind.

And goodwilled Muslims should keep that in mind too, and more actively cooperate in purging our societies of these monsters. The American Constitution is not a suicide pact, it has been said, and neither, ultimately, is the European PC-weenie fetish for tolerance. At some point even the Dutch -- hell, even the Belgians -- will no longer be willing to accept terrorism and murder simply in order to pretend that a cherished ideal is actually working.

Humorous Update-- the Ace of Spades Effect: If Andrew Sullivan can suggest he's the most important force in American politics after George Bush, why can't I similarly claim to be similarly important in Europe?

At least I have evidence:

Wilders said that without swift, bold action, Islamic fundamentalism will topple the country's democratic system.

"The Netherlands has been too tolerant to intolerant people for too long," he said. "We should not import a retarded political Islamic society to our country. There is nothing to be ashamed of to say this. It's not Islam. I speak out against the facts."

You know he got that from me. You know it.
