5.0 out of 5 stars The writing is already on the streets of Paris, November 10, 2005
This review is from: The West's Last Chance: Will We Win the Clash of Civilizations? (Hardcover)
I write this review in early November 2005. The French have just experienced two weeks of violent rioting in the largely Muslim- inhabited suburbs of Paris, and in other heavily Muslim populated regions throughout France.

Blankley is not the first to suggest that Europe and in fact Western Civilization as a whole is threatened by a resurgent Islam. Bat- Yeor provided a most forceful statement of this thesis in her 'Eurabia'. Robert Spencer, Daniel Pipes, Mark Steyn, many others are now writing on this subject.

Blankley however provides his own insights and his own suggested remedies, including curbs on 'immigration' and a transformation in the whole conception these societies have in his view mistakenly adopted. 'Multiculturalism and tolerance of autonomous Muslim areas is a major mistake.

Blankley in speaking to individual Muslims heard this not uncommon opinion.

"Germany is an Islamic country. Islam is in the home, in schools. Germans will be outnumbered. We [Muslims] will say what we want. We'll live how we want. It's outrageous that Germans demand we speak their language. Our children will have our language, our laws, our culture" (The West's Last Chance, page 75).

Blankley says that unless these societies begin to defend themselves they soon will be finished.
