Replacing London, then Britain, then Europe?

Europe's population is being increasingly replaced by poorly educated outsiders from the third world who do not wish to become Europeans--rather they wish to transform Europe into more affluent versions of their own countries. But since they bring their old prejudices, feuds, religious fanaticisms, and tendencies to violence along with them, it is more likely that they will be dragging Europe down. Starting with London, or perhaps Amsterdam, or maybe Malmo?
London is now the most ethnically diverse city in the world—more so, according to United Nations reports, even than New York...Walk down certain streets in London and one encounters a Babel of languages...A third of London’s residents were born outside Britain, a higher percentage of newcomers than in any other city in the world except Miami, and the percentage continues to rise. Likewise, migration figures for the country as a whole—emigration and immigration—suggest that its population is undergoing swift replacement. Many of the newcomers are from Pakistan, India, and Africa; others are from Eastern Europe and China. If present trends continue, experts predict, in 20 years’ time, between a quarter and a third of the British population will have been born outside it, and at least a fifth of the native population will have emigrated.

... the unprecedented influx of immigrants, often poorly educated, have little interest in, or appreciation of, the society to which they have come. Many are not learning to speak English, or speak it poorly, and forced marriages and other practices foreign to British law and custom remain common among them. A government report several years ago found that Britain’s whites and ethnic minorities led radically separate lives, with no sense of shared nationality. And as is now well-known, a disturbing number of British Muslims have proved susceptible to the ideology of Islamism. [A] poll found that a fifth of all British Muslims had sympathy with the “feelings and motives” of the London suicide bombers. Only a third of British Muslims, a Guardian survey found, want more integration into British culture.

...in Britain, multiculturalism became a career opportunity and a source of political patronage. So-called experts on cultural sensitivity and equal opportunity—generally people whose ambitions far exceeded their talent, except for bureaucratic intrigue—built little empires, whose continued existence depended on the permanence of racial and other divisions in society.

...increased contact between people does not necessarily result in increased sympathy among them. A large proportion of the indigenous Muslim terrorists caught in Britain are children of prosperous small businessmen, who have been to university and whose individual prospects for the future were good, if they had chosen to follow a normal career path. Cultural dislocation, the readiness to hand of an ideology of hatred that seems to answer their personal need for a fixed identity and an end to cultural confusion, and a disposable income—these, not poverty, account for their terrorism.

This is the legacy that young Europeans are waking up to. It is becoming more likely that their own children or grandchildren--if they ever choose to have them--will find themselves outsiders in the country that their grandparents had believed they would own in perpetuity.

Will Europeans become the new Armenians? Europe the new Lebanon?

Boy you really love europe!

Next article will bring what? The hypothesis that europe is built out of complete idiots and fools? That europe is comprised of mostly french people? (And boy do we know how we hate the french without even making a clue!) That europe is about to dispute a third world war? Or will it be about the historical evidence that in fact, Hitler was born inside Europe?

Man, you need to get laid. Fast.

Perhaps the word hypothesis does not mean what you think it means! ;-)

I would like to see the data for third and fourth generation immigrants. Also, Muslim immigrants have specific ideological issues that make it problematic to use them as examples of immigrants as a whole.

A large number of white westerners share the "feelings and motives" of terrorists. A significant fraction probably also approve of their methods, at least among our media. This does not mean that their attitudes can not be changed or will not change in time (well... for the media it does but some more sensible people can adapt their views to new information instead of adapting new information to their views).

Even the terrorists in Britain speak English and the mullahs and imams they catch on YouTube spouting hate are speaking in English (not great English but comparable to most of the natives) which means that many of their followers are either monolingual or bilingual English. The apparent increase in violence against apostates and honour killings of Muslim children who are too "Western" seems to me to be a reaction against the increased adaptation to and acceptance of Western society rather than evidence that such adaptation is lacking.

Additionally, immigrants who work in the fields of special interest lobbying and bureaucratic programs are probably not the best representatives of community attitudes. You can correct me if I am wrong but I seem to recall that there are certain areas of London and other British neighborhoods (garment districts etc.) where there is always a "wave" of the most recent immigrants and everyone always says that the new residents of these areas are not assimilating the way that the previous group did and don't share the values of the previous group or the rest of Britain. Only later do they develop economically and move out into the suburbs and other places whereupon the next group is said to have driven them all away.

We didn't create the problem; we won't be able to fix the problem.

And most of them, I believe, see us as the problem.

There is a good reason why Europe views the US in such a bigoted and irrational manner. It gets their minds off of what is eating them.

But the real problem that is eating Europe is that Europe is being eaten from within. Most Europeans would rather not be made to think about that, since it might require serious action and responsibility.

I think I saw a white European working at the Louvre and one of the security guards at the Amsterdam airport might not have been a homosexual.

Thanks for the intelligence tip, tp. It is good to have spies in dangerous places. ;-)

BR, it is your own irrational hatred that distorts everything you hear and read about the US. You are not alone. Clone thinking is apparently all the rage among persons who fall into certain political patterns. If you go to Wisconsin in November, students at WU can tell you how you can vote for Obama.

LOL al fin. Unlike you, I have no hatred towards other countries at all. I don't hate america, it's a fine country if you ask me. Not that I'm that inclined to even visit it, but you know, I don't really care that much about the country. It is you that like to spread your message of hatred and fear throughout the entire planet, specially to those places who don't conform to your ideological prejudices.

So I'm sorry that after you post your ideological trash that I come here to confront yourself with the limits of your own place. There's a saying here, you know? Clean your own house before you go about cleaning others. Unfortunately, foreign "cleaning" seems to be a specialty on the USA...

Of course, BR. You are quite right. And I, for one, certainly appreciates your generosity in setting us straight.

In truth, Europe has no problems at all. Europeans need not be concerned about low birthrates of indigenes, or the fast breeding immigrants of a superstitious, intolerant, and fanatical nature.

Everything is fine.
