I think you're half right. I didn't see the lack of mention of Russia as an issue. Russia is imploding demographically even more rapidly than Europe is. According to Pravda, "the Russian population can be expected to drop to 25 million people in 100 years." Their birth rate is not just low, it is in free-fall decline. My personal belief is that Russia cannot maintain its territorial integrity with that going on; its vast geography almost begs for invasion from China or elsewhere. Whether that is done militarily, or simply by immigration and propagation, almost doesn't matter. The result will be the same: a "Bigger China" where a lot of Russia is now.
I was as surprised as you were that Zinsmeister did not mention the "Islamization" of Europe. The population implosion among ethnic Europeans is not occurring in a vaccum. One might even argue that the undemocratic nature of the EU machinery is an attempt to forestall an inevitable imposition of Islamic law -- via popular vote -- in European countries. By surrendering sovereignty to an unelected bureaucracy, the "elites" can perhaps maintain some power over their lives while their countries slowly devolve into Islamic Republics.
This same statement was made on CNN intl yesterday by the French delegate to the EU in a 4-way conversation with the German and British delegates and the CNN moderator. The Brit was very relaxed and young and affable and didn't need to point out that the Brits will do as they will in their own self interests without making 90 degree course corrections.
Another elephant in the living room: Fundamentalist and proseletyzing Christianity is outlawed in France and to a degree in Germany. Baptists aren't allowed to seek converts and standard American run of the mill "christian" lifestyle is near illegal and frowned upon.
Breakdown the barrier to fundamental christian renewal in both protestant and catholic traditions and you will see the rebirth of Europe. Otherwise all you will have is Medieval oppression without the Christian overtones. Ditto for Vatican organization - self censorship in Europe and Canada and propaganda distribution is at an all time high.
I'm still unconvinced that those events are related. It might just be that Old Europe is on a fool's errand to have its United States of Europe counter-weight to the U.S.A., while simultaneously it is being filled by Islamic immigrants who want to take advantage of its welfare, relative standard of living, and moral vaccum.
