How's this for European denial?
This is scary...an interview with the ex-foreign minister of Germany Joschka Fischer.
Joseph Puder: In your presentation, you did not touch upon the Islamic threat to Europe. How do you see this threat?
Joschka Fischer: (Waving his hand in a dismissive gesture) The Muslim vote in Europe is insignificant, and European leaders are not formulating their policies with the Muslim community in Europe on their mind.
JP: And what about the prospect of Shariah laws in Europe?
JF: It is more likely in the U.S. than in Europe. Your system is much more liberal in this respect. You have the separation of Church and State that Europe does not have. Since the Reformation, European leaders chose the religion of their respective states. I do not envision such a thing as Shariah laws in Europe.
JP: How about your multi-culturalism and political correctness, which accommodates radical Muslims in Europe?
JF: I believe that you have it worse in the U.S.
