Dancing around the issue

There is an interesting article in the New York Times (yes, even that left wing bastion still has some interesting points to make) on the "baby crisis" in Europe: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/29/magazine/29Birth-t.html?ref=magazine&pagewanted=all. The article is on point in that it notes the existence of a very real problem--Europeans aren't having kids, or enough of them, anyway. However, the way that Europe is dealing with this crisis--importing Muslims who are changing the continent in ways that were unimaginable even 10-15 years ago--is what interests me most. All we have to do is look at the changing face of France, Holland, Germany, Great Britain, etc., to understand the impact of not only the immigration--immigration itself is a good thing--but who is being "imported". It's a fair question to ask if European political elites ever considered the true impact of the decisions they made 20+ years ago................

If you were living in Canada, you could be prosecuted by the Stalinist "Human Rights" kangaroo courts for writing this. To the Left, this is "hate speech."
