A Taki’s-eye view of the situation in Europe:
When a woman in the second row was spotted fully covered at the Paris Opera House last year, the singers went on strike. She and her escort from the Gulf left and there was a five-minute ovation for the strikers. (…)
The fear of insulting Islam has led to the ludicrous situation that major European cities find themselves in: having mosque after mosque going up via Saudi money, and having radical fire-breathing imams passing the message to kill the infidels. It took five years and millions of pounds in police overtime to finally indict and put to trial a single imam in North London. He had praised two Arabs who had cut the throat of a British soldier in broad London daylight and had celebrated over his mangled body. British newspapers regularly feature stories of anti-Semitic incidents taking place in London and Manchester, both cities with large Jewish communities, yet the perpetrators, who are close to 100 percent Muslims, are never named. I lived in London for forty years and have yet to see an article or a TV program announce that it’s the Muslims who are solely responsible for anti-Semitic attacks in Britain. As if the 4 million Muslims in Britain didn’t exist.
Such are the joys of political correctness. The Dutch, mind you, are even worse…
