Is our continent on a suicide mission?
More from Douglas Murray on the crisis facing Europe:
Over the years of the recent migration crisis I have been travelling across Europe from the most remote southern islands of Italy to the north of Sweden, from the islands of Greece to the suburbs of France.
I have travelled to the places where migrants continue to land and the places where they keep ending up. Everywhere I have gone I have come to the same conclusion: our continent is in the process of self-murder.
Amid the day-to-day distraction of life and politics, it is easy to forget this biggest event of our time. All pale into insignificance besides the story of the loss by Europeans of the only place we had to call home…
Of course it is possible when standing in a migrant camp in one of these places or speaking to the people who arrive – as I have done many times – to think that perhaps our continent can cope with this flow.
From these far-flung outposts a few thousand people arriving every single day and then being shipped or flown up on to the mainland of Europe can seem a manageable prospect. In fact it spells a continent’s catastrophe.
Europe, PLEASE wake up, before it is too late!!!
