Are Europeans the Ents?

Another GREAT article by Victor David Hanson. He asks if the Europeans are like the Ents; will they rise to the challenges brought forth by radical Muslims? The following really struck me (but read the entire article):

"But gut-check time is coming for Europe, with its own rising unassimilated immigrant populations, rogue mosques entirely bent on destroying the West, declining birth rate and rising entitlements, the Turkish question, and a foreign policy whose appeasement of Arab regimes won it only a brief lull and plenty of humiliation. The radical Muslim world of the madrassas hates the United States because it is liberal and powerful; but it utterly despises Europe because it is even more liberal and far weaker, earning the continent not fear, but contempt."

A snide Canadian recently commented on another blog
that Canada hadn't been attacked on 9/11. Well, buddy - you want to know why? Read the above. They don't like you ANY better, they just don't see you as a threat.
