Eurabian Follies

Eurabian Follies


By 2050, Europe will be unrecognizable. Instead of romantic cafes,
Paris’s Boulevard Saint-Germain will be lined with halal butcheries and
hookah bars; the street signs in Berlin will be written in Turkish.
School-children from Oslo to Naples will read Quranic verses in class,
and women will be veiled.

At least, that’s what the authors of the strange new genre of
“Eurabia” literature want you to believe. Not all books of this
alarmist Europe-is-dying category, which received its most
intellectually hefty treatment yet with the recent release of
Christopher Caldwell’s Reflections on the Revolution in Europe,
offer such dire and colorful predictions. But they all make the case
that low fertility rates among natives, massive immigration from Muslim
countries, and the fateful encounter between an assertive Islamic
culture and a self-effacing European one will lead to a Europe devoid
of all Western identity.
