  1. Cora says:

    The article about the non-existent islamification of Britain talks about the BNP a.k.a. British National Party. The BNP is not a conservative party but an ultra-rightwing quasi-fascist fringe party. Whatever one may think about the actual conservative party of Britain a.k.a. the Tories, they do not deserve to be lumped in with fascist nutters like the BNP.

    Otherwise I agree that all the talk about a supposed islamification of Europe is very annoying not to mention very wrong. The US has a higher chance of turning into a (Christian) theocracy in the next 50 years than any country in western Europe.
