    And, of course, by leaving they are exacerbating the trend. This is a 2007 article, but it provides some substance to some of the changes in British society.

    That trend has certainly not changed since 2007. I was browsing through some of the 'white flight' articles and the trend might even be accelerating.

    Why Britain would change their rich heritage for one that is "multi-cultural" will be debated by historians for decades to come.

    There's no need to stick a fork in the old girl. She's done.

    Catering to sensitive Muslims, who aren't strong enough in their faith that they would seek violent retaliation over such a "threat to God," will not appease the European situation. Islam is a political mess across the region, not just in Britain. And no amount of appeasing nor oppressive prescription will undo the coming storm. Europeans have spent decades ensuring that Muslims weren't welcome, and plenty of Muslims living in ghettos prefernot even care about assimilation anymore. This is why so many terrorist plots are hatched right in Europe. It is the Middle East light.

    It's helping propel it, actually.

    The philosophy of feeding the aligator hoping it will reward you by eating you last has never been a particuarly wise strategy.

    I was debating an Islamist one time on the BBC who was quite clear on his intentions about Muslims taking over Britain and I conceded that it was quite likely it might happen. I then pointed out that when it does, if it does, there would only be further chaos and fighting between different Muslim groups. He conceded that point but said it didn't really matter. The strong horse would eventually win and it would be a Muslim.

    It's evolution of a sort.

    The European history is rich with ethnic cleansing and genocide. Instead of developing immigration policies that welcome foriegn cultures to enrich their own, they eventually cast them out. America has gone through immigration waves that have allowed the Germans, the Italians, the Irish, Asians, Mexicans, and now Muslims. This is why we continue to "evolve," expand culture, and have a reputation for being the "New Jerusalem." France, Germany, Britain, Spain, Belgium, etc. are the same people they were centuries ago.

    After decades of making Muslims feel unwelcome and without opportunity, they have formed ghettos. It is too late. If it came down to it, Europeans will ensure that Europe is for "true" Europeans.

    This is why there is truth that most radicals and extremists are merely trying to convince themselves. A religion in crisis will always lash out from insecurities.

    What about trashy countries that send teachers home or ban them from teaching ever again for getting students to come to school in KKK outfits? Never forget to check your own country's record before throwing stones through the glass windows of US free speech laws.

    Let me add that to the list then.
    Kafir is the original muslim word that is now "kuffar" - "kaffir" is the deeply offensive insult that you use in Southern Africa at your own risk. Exercise free speech all you want in South Africa - but burn a cross on someone's lawn or call them a "kaffir" (it's pronounced "kefer") and you'll end up wearing a rubber tyre necklace. SgtRock is technically correct using the term "kaffir" but it's not really a common muslim insult anymore - the Boers took that over while they had power in Apartheid South Africa.

    I was born in Africa and have travelled all over it - however there's no way I'd know everything there was to know about it. However - it would help some Americans to know "Africa" is a continent made up of many different countries, like "Europe" is a continent made up of many different countries.

    Being fired from a job and being arrested are two different things.
