BERNARD LEWIS, WORLD-FAMOUS HISTORIAN AND EXPERT ON ISLAM, PREDICTED THAT EUROPE WILL BECOME ISLAMIC BY THE END OF THE CENTURY AS A RESULT OF EMIGRATION PATTERNS AND BIRTH RATES. (AL-SHARQ, QATAR, 8/20/04)
Try "the end of the decade".
Like, DUH! I give it till the end of the next decade.....
This is news?
Hmmmmm, a lot can happen in 96 years.
It will happen here to if we aren't smart.
Remember the story of the woman who worked in Florida and got fired for bringing a BLT (pork) to work which was offensive to the company's business clients? If she doesn't sue and win big time, we're in trouble.
who knows...of course it might not happen either...
I wonder what is the percentage of 2nd generation Muslim immigrants (e.g., in France) who attend a mosque regularly, pray five times a day and do not consume alcohol or eat pork?
Beat me to it...
I'm buying as much as I can afford.
When the hordes of terrified Europeans flee to America, Canada, and Australia, the price of land will soar and my rich descendents will honor my foresight.
"People often underestimate the power of popular Western culture on Muslims immigrants. From what I've seen, most of the 3rd worlders in Europe are just as much into the contemporary Western ways as the natives. That is not to say that everything about our culture is positive.

You would be very surprised. There is very little slippage away from their traditions and faith. They do westernize a little but more so in their dealing with westerners than in their own practices and beliefs.
But in 100 years, who knows?
20 yeras.......France is at least 1/3 Muslim. See it now folks, before the paintings and sculptures are transhed.
Even for such an eminence as Bernard Lewis, it's very risky to make predictions - especially about the future! A lot can happen in one hundred years.
Sorry. Years. Oh yes. See it only if you want to. And remain mute except in your hotel & taxis so they don't scream at you. But it is pretty, except for the poodle poop.
Or to the Eastern European Countries.
Poland, Hungary, Checzh Repulbic.
I fear the vatican may be forced move to Mexico City, Los Angles, Warsaw or Manilla.
WHY were the European Countries Dumb enough to import Muslums instead of Latinos?.
Especally Spain, France and Italy?.
Does he say how long it will take America to become Mexican?
The Muslims all live in ghettos in the cities.
When they start buying up the countryside and small towns and displacing the peasantry, I will start worrying. Until then, Europe will remain European.
If GWB's policy is implemented, we may end up saving Europe from itself. As free societies rise up from the ashes of theocratic states and dictatorships, a change in immigration will inevitably result. If freedom is part of the equation in the future of the ME then fanatisism will be tempered by hope. People stay put if these conditions are met.
Hehe. I was going to say that. LOL
gee, what was the first clue Europe would be ruled by islam? Madrid bombings? The Iraq war? No, that only brought home the problem. If they refuse to sacrifice everything they value including their life, they will be destroyed. It is that simple.
