The First Muslim Born Leader of America Thomas Landon Brussels Journal (hat tip Fjordman)
Since perception is often more powerful than reality the importance of an Obama presidency cannot be underestimated. The American political establishment, including the Republicans, are very naive about the Islamic threat to Europe. Rather than working against the Islamization of Europe American policies tend to hasten the process. America is an ally of Saudi Arabia – a dictatorship which funds the most extremist Islamic organizations. America pushes for the independence of Kosovo, which will establish an Islamist regime in the heart of Europe. America wants the European Union to accept Turkey as a member state. If Mr. Obama proceeds with these policies (as he is likely to do) and withdraws from Iraq, thereby indicating that America has lost the war, the radical Islamists in Europe will become even more arrogant than they are today.
Obviously, America is not to blame for Europe's present predicament. The demographic and religious vacuum in Europe, which is being filled by Muslim immigrants and by Islam, is entirely of Europe's own making. The Europeans – and they alone, not the Americans and not even the Muslims, who were invited to come to Europe – are to blame for the Islamization of the old continent. The irony, however, is that America does not seem to draw lessons from Europe's predicament.
The specter of Islam is haunting the world. The Europeans, who lack America's fighting spirit, are trying to appease their enemy and are hoping for "soft Islamization." America, sadly, does not even seem to have noticed that there is a problem. It called Mr. Romney to account for his Mormonism but has yet to ask Mr. Obama for his views on Islam.
