|Is Europe finally waking
up to the danger from Islam
Islamist assertion has
provoked a new European willingness in recent months to stand up for
historic customs – as seen by the banning of burqas in Italy,
requiring a German school boy to attend co-ed swimming classes, and
making male applicants for Irish citizenship renounce polygamy. When
a ranking Belgian politician cancelled lunch with an Iranian group
after it demanded that alcohol not be present, his spokesman
helpfully explained, "You can't force the authorities of Belgium to
As shown by two statements on the same day last week (Aug. 24),
leading Western politicians are going beyond these minor specifics to
address the civilizational heart of the matter.
David Cameron, the British shadow education secretary and one of the
Conservative Party's bright prospects, defined Britishness
as "freedom under the rule of law," adding that this
expression "explains almost everything you need to know about our
country, our institutions, our history, our culture - even our
economy." Peter Costello, the treasurer of Australia and regarded as
heir apparent to Prime Minister John Howard, asserts, "Australia
expects its citizens to abide by core beliefs: democracy, the rule of
law, the independent judiciary, independent liberty."
But it was
the British shadow defence minister, Gerald Howarth, who
went the furthest, suggesting in early August that all British
Islamists must go. "If they don't like our way of life, there is a
simple remedy: go to another country, get out." He directed this
principle even to Islamists born in Britain (such as three of the
four London bombers): "If you don't give allegiance to this country,

|The Dangers ahead in Gaza - post pullout
Seventy percent of the current population of Palestinian-
controlled Gaza has no interest in building a Palestinian state.
Further, there is talk of bringing Palestinians—euphemistically
referred to as "militants"—from Lebanon into Gaza. The only
Palestinians in Lebanon are refugees, meaning that the percentage of
the Arabs in Gaza vested in and working towards a "right of return"
rather than the establishment of a democratic state, or indeed any
state, would increase.
Thus is the pie-in-the-sky notion that the PA is on the verge of
establishing a stable civic society in Gaza has been dashed against
the hard rock of the reality. Until that reality is recognized, the
optimistic plotline emerging after the Gaza withdrawal must be seen
as more fiction than fact.
Focus on the "right of return," then, will remain at the heart of
future developments in all-Arab Gaza. According to that
ostensible "right," which in fact does not exist and which has been
rejected by George W. Bush, all Arabs who fled Israel in 1948, and
their descendants (now up to the fourth generation), have an
inalienable right to return to the land and the homes from which they
fled. This means that, for instance, places such as Ashkelon, which
lies within the Green Line demarcating Israel's borders since the
1967 war, will become the province of Palestinians.
To bolster their demand for repatriation to Israel, the refugees
insist that they do not belong permanently in the areas in which they
live now. This is not just the policy of the UNRWA, it is the policy
of the Palestinian Authority. The PA, from its inception, has made
clear that those registered with UNRWA as refugees are not part of
its body politic and would not be considered citizens of Palestine
should an independent state arise. The PA defines itself as a
temporary host to the refugees and no more. There is a dark logic to
the PA's position: Incorporating the Palestinian refugees would
seriously undermine, if not totally nullify, the "right to return"
upon which the PA insists.
The Palestinians of Gaza would cling to their stateless status with
desperation. Indeed, there are instances of refugees starting riots
inside the camps at precisely the point at which the interests of the
PA had been advanced and the refugees suspected that their cause was
going to be sold out — so determined were they to prevent loosing
the "right of return" during negotiations for a state. It is no
accident that much of Palestinian terrorism—including the manufacture
and firing of rockets—is centered in the UNRWA camps of Gaza. There
reside the people who have been fighting not to "liberate" Gaza from
Israeli control, but to force Israel into allowing them to return to
homes within the Green Line inside Israel.
