Muslims Contest Fecundity, Sue in Court for a Declaration of Relative Sterility

From the Washington Times:

TORONTO — A Muslim group is suing Canada's leading national newsweekly for the right of rebuttal because it published excerpts warning of high Muslim birthrates in the book "America Alone," by syndicated columnist Mark Steyn.
Mr. Steyn, whose syndicated columns appear in The Washington Times, writes that rising birthrates in Muslim countries and the declining number of babies in
Christian and Westernized countries represent a long-term security threat.

The U.S. magazine Human Events published its own account of the Maclean's article, highlighting this passage: "There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe — without swords, without guns, without conquests. The 50 million Muslims of Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades."

The Human Events article goes on to say: "Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes. Every Western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries is producing 3.5 children."

I guess the Muslims are insulted and insist that they are, in fact, following the ways of the decadent Godless West, the hallmark of which is contraception and recreational abortion. Or perhaps they are insulted by the insinuation they they want Brussels, Paris and Rome. Who can blame them? I'd be offended too, those cities are dumps.

This is a good opportunity to recommend Pat Buchanon's Death of the West.
