A European Awakening Against Islamic Fascism?

An indispensable article by Hanson. The turn of the tide against the Islamo-fascists has begun. Be sure to read the whole piece (click the link) and save it to disk.

Hardly. Recent polls show a majority of Europeans are becoming increasingly tired of current liberal immigration policies and foreign aid programs that have given billions of dollars to the Palestine Authority that they now learn in the aftermath of Yasser Arafat's death resulted in both rampant corruption and the Hamas backlash. It is one thing to subsidize a double-talking Arafat, quite another to keep giving money to terrorists who openly promise to finish the European holocaust.
