Bicultural Death

Mark Steyn tells us a story about lovely peaceful Fiji that held only Fijians and ethnic Indians brought to the island to serve indentures. This bi-cultural paradise changed when the demographics put the two groups at a 50-50 tie. Before you knew it there was a coup and lovely Fiji was now under military dictat.

Steyn draws a comparison with France and other Euros where there are 2 cultures, the indigenous and the Muslim. And the Musloms are gaining in the demographics game.

And the Fijian scenario - a succession of bloodless coups - is the optimistic one. After all, the differences between Fijian natives and Indians are as nothing compared with those between the French and les beurs. I love the way those naysayers predicting doom and gloom in Baghdad scoff that Iraq's a totally artificial entity and that, without some Saddamite strongman, Kurds, Sunnis and Shias can't co-exist in the same state. Oh, really? If Iraq's an entirely artificial entity, what do you call a state split between gay drugged-up red-light whatever's-your-bag Dutchmen and anti-gay anti-whoring anti-everything-you-dig Muslims? If Kurdistan doesn't belong in Iraq, does Pornostan belong in the Islamic Republic of Holland?

Steyn explains that the US is truly multi-cultural. Just look at the names of 9-11 victims:

Arestegui, Bolourchi, Carstanjen, Droz, Elseth, Foti, Gronlund, Hannafin, Iskyan, Kuge, Laychak, Mojica, Nguyen, Ong, Pappalardo, Quigley, Retic, Shuyin, Tarrou, Vamsikrishna, Warchola, Yuguang, Zarba. Black, white, Hispanic, Arab, Indian, Chinese - in a word, American.

Europe needs people from other cultures. The Euros are not repopulating enough indigenous to hold back the dike. Actually, given the relative military zeal, the Muslims will win prior to their reaching population parity.

And in 10 years where will democracy be flourishing? In Iraq and Afghanistan.
