U.S., European Elites Just Not Equipped to Deal With Islam’s Insurgency

The terror attacks in Nice and Wurzburg are the latest manifestations of what should now be seen as a still fairly low-level Islamist insurgency taking place in a number of west European countries. The fact that this insurgency has been allowed to kindle itself and slowly emerge before now bursting forth represents a profound failure of Western European political culture and of the continent’s elites.

This is not merely a matter of poor police or intelligence work. Rather, it is the culmination of a long process of enfeeblement. The Islamist insurgency is a disease attacking an already weakened body which lacks the means to defend itself.

What has brought about the decline of Western Europe to this point?

    US and European elites are encouraging it. It’s not enfeeblement on their part, it’s enfeeblement on OUR part.

    • Since the end of WWII the Europeans have essentially gotten free defence from the American taxpayer. As a result, they have been able to spend lavishly on the welfare state. They have become drunk with free social goodies while ignoring obvious observable unpleasant facts.

      Without a big change fast. Western Civilization in Western Europe will perish.

        Yep they can afford to defend themselves but have chosen not to.
