The linked article looks to be warmed-over clash of civilizations material that is well past its sell-by date. I read it and was not impressed.

Europe needs to find a way to deal with its debt crisis, and to deal with dislocations in its labor markets (often involving Islamic guest workers that are poorly integrated into society). Solving these problems should render the Islamist threat in Europe pretty much negligible.

But this has been going on in Europe before the debt crisis . Churchill caled it right , way back in 1921 .

Let’s clarify that Only a portion of Europe is causing the Debt Crisis.

Let’s clarify that Only a portion of Europe is causing the Debt Crisis.

True, but its a pretty big portion. But I think Italy, Spain and Ireland are going to be able to dig themselves out eventually. Greece will likely be cut loose at some future point, likely after things have stabilized elsewhere.

In addition to looking at specific European counties, the role of the credit and bond markets needs to be looked at more closely.

I think that some of what has been happening is effectively predatory abuse of countries because their currency values are fixed by using the Euro. Greece is a clear-cut example of government malfeasance, but the other cases tend to be much less clear.
