Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Potential Danger in Eurabia

There's a discussion on the assimilation of European Muslims on Gene Expression and Randy McDonald's Live Journal blog. To summarize: There is a very strong case that Muslims will eventually be assimilated into the mainstream just like early immigrants. There is a danger if that happens. Some of the Muslims may regard such assimilation as a betrayal.

The current bout of terrorism was set off by Osama bin Laden's reaction to Gulf War I. He regarded it as a heist of Middle-Eastern oil. He expected oil prices to rise to $144 per barrel (similar rises were predicted by Malthusians) and when they didn't, he looked for somebody to blame.

At the moment, there are predictions of the imminent takeover of Europe by unassimilated Muslims. I'm sure many Islamofascists are looking forward to that. If it doesn't happen, a future equivalent of Osama bin Laden might start looking for somebody to blame. He might blame the media (either in Europe or Hollywood), the schools, the internet, or possibly the Freemasons. We'll have to keep an eye out.
