Gaddafi did not strike me asa a first-rate visionary.
But something may be in your assertion, though differently. More and more people come to Europe from former colonies - Pakistan, Algeria, and there
are millions of guest workers in Germany from Turkey. We'd better get used to them. They go to minaret as we go to Church on Sunday. Nothing
dangerous in that by itself. Some of them prefer to learn the local language and their kids usually have a local identity - like French Algerians.
However, while a minority does not want to adapt, freshly arrived, for the majority, adaptation means jobs and money they can send home to their
poorer countries. In fact, many famous scientists in the UK have Arabic names. So europe is a little melting pot.
The extreme forms of militant Islam hold turf when these people face discrimination, and with an economy on the downturn. With a down economy, you
will always have flaming nationalism and racism. Millions are there capable to do something but the economy is weak and does not want them. So it
highly depends upon the moneyed elite as well as the Europeans' attitudes how well these people can be integrated.
I think it is Europe's survival card to integrate the new minorities, as well as its karmic payback for centuries of colonization. Nationalism and
Christian chauvinism certainly do not help, and bad economy neither - these will result in ghettoisation of people that fled or moved from Islamic
lands, and then they will probably turn to more roots and religion - just ike the majority does (French, German etc.)
