As long as they have more than 2.1 children per woman their number will increase. The problem is that non-Muslims women have less than 2.1 children and that Muslim mothers still have more than 2.1 - and increasing in our part of the world.

The West is made up of countries built around one basic and incredibly important political ethos – they are all Liberal Democracies. Unfortunately, these countries also share a more recent political ideology which has come to be known as multiculturalism, a word invented in the latter half of the 20th century to enforce our toleration – indeed celebration – of all faiths, cultures and races.

When Muslims take to the streets in nearly 30 countries to engage in various degrees of anti-Western violence, something important is under way. The following are reflections on what this might mean:
The Rushdie Rules have gone viral: Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s 1989 masterstroke of imposing a death edict on Salman Rushdie has spread and become the humdrum response of Islamists to perceived insults. By telling the West what can and cannot be said about Islam, Khomeini sought to impose Islamic law, or Shariah, on it.
European capitals have become stages for anti-Western protests, by those outraged by the US made film ‘Innocence of Muslims’. But are calls for a holy war a sincere protest or a recruiting strategy of radical groups?
Geert Wilders has been invited by the Q Society to speak in Australia, and he is scheduled to make two appearances there next month. But he has yet to be issued a visa to enter the country, which after three weeks is an unusual circumstance.
The number of dead over an amateur film deriding Islam is now more than 50 - one week since protests began. The latest victims were a dozen people in Kabul - killed instantly when an Afghan suicide bomber rammed a car full of explosives into their minibus.
Two days ago I posted an article on Saturday's demonstration by Muslims near the American Embassy in Paris. There was a short video at the end that provided a glimpse of the event. The newspaper source was Le Figaro. It did not seem to be a major story.
