Back in 2007 I was a speaker at a conference in Berlin sponsored by the U.S. State Department and the German Foreign Ministry. As the day wore on, speaker after speaker talked about the growing problem of jihad terrorism in Europe, although of course all the speakers except me spoke about it only with multiple euphemisms and circumlocutions. At one point someone in the audience asked one of the speakers, who was a German government official, why Europe was importing so many Muslim migrants if they were the cause of so much trouble. He immediately replied that the cultural and economic benefits that the migrants brought to Europe far exceeded any difficulties that they presented. Other speakers hurried to echo his statement.
That was in 2007, and I doubted that the benefits outweighed the drawbacks even then; now it should be clear to everyone that they don’t, but it isn’t.
Some will say, particularly because this graffiti is in English, that it was painted by some “right-wing” foe of immigration. Maybe it was. In that case, it is a sign that the massive influx of Muslim migrants is raising concerns about jihad terror among European citizens, and European authorities are not addressing those concerns. If non-Muslims wrote it, it is a sign of the growing frustration in Europe, and the coming strife.
“4/02/2016 – HOVMANTORP, Sweden – ‘Pray To Allah Or Die,’ Breitbart, February 4, 2016 (scroll down):
What appears to be an Islamic State battle flag has been painted on the wall of a school along with the words’ Pray to Allah or Die’, reports Sweden’s state radio.
Police were called when the graffiti was discovered, but at present they have no suspects for the crime, admits a spokesman. The headmistress of the school told media the sign made her feel “uncomfortable”.
No kidding, really?
