You are talking about Europe like it should be a United States of Europe. That's wrong. Europe consists of different countries, different cultures, different governments, and the unemployment rate is different from country to country. What happens in Paris right now has nothing to do with Netherland, Belgium, Spain, Scandinavien, etc.. This is a typical french situation, even if other european countries watch this closely, and if necessary, want to help France. France is not entire Europe, just a part. You can't compare United States with EU's GDP or unemployment. Some countries are richer than other countries, and countries deals with the immigration problems in different ways. Europe has not a huge demographic problem, and since most countries have secular population, how can muslims over here islamize secular modern europeans? They are a minor group. USA have far more immigrants than Europe have, and more multiculturel all together. East-European countries are still struggling from the time under Soviet, but they will do fine after a while. No need to be pessimistic. If many israelis could get rid of the paranoia and the hostile attitude against Europe, they could have a good alliance with them too. As far as i know, there are already cooperation and friendship with many european countries, but i see red, when you call EU - Eurabia. Some has been so mean to kick back by saying USrael. Do you like that word? Well, it's not a word i like to use, since i have relatives closely tied to Israel and relatives in USA. To trust Bush is either stubborness or naivity. If more scandals shows up now, he can be impeached, and he has 3 more years left to rule USA. Will he make the period? Noone know. But what most people in the world know, and what americans know is that the Bush-regime means unsafety, lies and scandals. His support from the americans has now fallen down to 38%. But even if USA is in troubble, the europeans are still their allied, not their enemies.
