Maybe Europe is waking up?

David Kaspar of Davids Medienkritik has a link to a blistering attack on the European attitude towards Islamofacism, the thing that makes it unusual is that it is an opinion piece by Matthias Döpfner, Chief Executive of German publisher Axel Springer AG.

Here is a taste:

For his policies, Bush risks the fall of the dollar, huge amounts of additional national debt and a massive and persistent burden on the American economy—because everything is at stake. (emphasis mine)

While the alleged capitalistic robber barons in American know their priorities, we timidly defend our social welfare systems. Stay out of it! It could get expensive. We’d rather discuss the 35-hour workweek or our dental health plan coverage. Or listen to TV pastors preach about "reaching out to murderers." These days, Europe reminds me of an elderly aunt who hides her last pieces of jewelry with shaking hands when she notices a robber has broken into a neighbor’s house. Europe, thy name is cowardice.

Maybe with one of the most powerful members of the German media writing such a clear and harsh indicment of the European "appeasement" attitude, we can hope that Europe in general just may be waking up to the threat that Islamofacism poses not just to the US, but to Western civilization as a whole.

Well, most of Europe anyway, I'm sure the *spit*French*spit* will be trying to sell arms under the table to the terrorists, even in the unlikely event they would ever even try to pay lip service to fighting the Islamoterrorists.

There's hope, maybe, if they'll get past the discussion stage and act.
