True, True, True, #6

As a follow-up to my last post, let me clarify something.

One could easily point to the Islamist global insurgency and sense the doom of Europe, at least. But this threat is nothing new. Muslims have wanted to spread westward for hundreds of years, and they've been held at bay so far by Christianized society which was intrinsically corrosive to Islam. Meaning we'd get converts.

Here's why this is happening:
Can one pity those who have killed their own future for the pleasures of the present? Europe’s predicament, I repeat, is entirely self-inflicted. Not Islam is to blame. Secularism is.
Islam has always been a force to be reckoned with. The fact that this fire is now burning hotter than it has in generations is because they sense victory. The Christian culture formerly in their way, that historical bulwark of holiness, is in ruins. They can now fan out, spurred on by the radical imams who cry "Death to America" in Arabic and "Peace!" in English.

We need a new Churchill. Enough of these friggin' Neville Chamberlains.
