Arguments in favor of admitting more Muslim refugees to Europe and to America often boil down to the notion that they are all: “just like us.” After all, we all have the same DNA.
It’s a variant on citizen-of-the-worldism. But it also shows that today’s European and American multiculturalists do not believe that Western civilization is worth defending. They do not mind seeing it overrun by people who despise it.
Over at the Legal Insurrection blog, Vijeta Unival reports the results of a survey of Muslim youth in Austria. It turns out that they are not just like us. They want to practice jihad and they hate Jews and gays. Hmmm.
“Anti-Semitic, homophobic and sympathising with Jihad.” This is how a leading Austrian newspaper summed up the latest study looking into the attitudes of young Muslims living in the city of Vienna. The study commissioned by the city reveals that nearly one-third of the Muslim youth living in the Austrian capital hold radical Islamic views and support armed Jihad against the West.
The leftist coalition running the city attacked the findings of the study that yet again reveal the clutching hold of Islamism over Europe’s migrant Muslim population. The study also exposes the failure of Multiculturalism, a policy pursued for decades by Social Democrats and ecological Green Party, who run the Austrian capital.
The study also highlights Europe’s lingering Anti-Semitism. 33 percent of all young Viennese respondents held negative opinion of Jews — among Muslim respondents that number was 47 percent.
