The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

The Road to EUtopia

Mark Steyn: The EU just won't take "no" for an answer.
I haven't seen the official ballot, but the choice seems to be: "Check Box A to support the new constitution; check Box B for genocide and conflagration."

Alas, this tactic doesn't seem to have worked. So, a couple of days before the first referendum, Jean-Claude Juncker, the "president" of the European Union, let French and Dutch voters know how much he values their opinion:

"If at the end of the ratification process, we do not manage to solve the problems, the countries that would have said No, would have to ask themselves the question again," "President" Juncker told the Belgian newspaper Le Soir.

Got that? You have the right to vote, but only if you give the answer your rulers want you to give.
Nidra Poller: Referendum on a Constitution for a Patchwork Nation Without Borders.
The Euro-Mediterranean "Dialogue" is a masterpiece of abject surrender. The European Union functions therein as an intermediate stage of an ominous Eurabian project that calls for a meltdown of European culture and its recasting in a monumental paradise of cultural relativism that closely resembles the Muslim oumma [community]. Isn’t this a more accurate vision of what the Union is preparing for its docile citizens? When subversive appeasement hides behind the veil of "Dialogue," what unspeakable ambitions might be dissembled by the noble word "Constitution?"
. . .
Behind the sturdy images of a forthright Europe on the road to a bright future lurks the shadow of a shameful antisemitism that has soaked into the very skin of European society. Economic stagnation and plus 10% unemployment eats away at France’s elegant foundations. Life has become harsh, violence of all sorts is on the rise. The strong euro is no help to French wage earners. Social services are breaking down. Anti-war pro-Palestinian anti-American activism has not even brought hollow victories. Man can not live by bluster alone.

Democracy is leaking out of this tattered Europe. As national sovereignty is handed up to the higher echelons of the European Union, citizens lose their grip on the affairs of state. For all its brand name institutions—parliament, executive, commission, president and now secretary of state—the EU does not have a democratic infrastructure. It is recreating something like an old fashioned European empire where the ruling classes hobnob together in feasts and palaces, and dictate their will to the people.

In the absence of grass roots power, commoners, with no constructive means of expression, resort to the sullen refusal to work, freedom to throw a monkey wrench into the system, go on strike on a holiday weekend, burn down an occasional factory. Some serious analysts of the Constitutional Treaty describe it as a blueprint for gridlock.
I don't know if I'm a serious analyst or not, but I'd say gridlock is going to be the least of the EU's problems. Certainly, the northbound "Mediterranean" freeway will continue to flow at a steady clip; and European Jews and natives are likely to take to the outbound lanes even more than they are already.

Oh yeah, all those French territories get to vote too.
Chirac counts on jungle tribes to swing EU vote.

So do a million or so Dutch Muslims, encouraged by to
vote "yes" on the EU Constitution.

FYI, one of Islamonline's chief advisors is Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a notoriously pro-terror Islamist who condemns homosexuality, advocates wife-beating, describes suicide bombers as "martyrs," and exhorts Muslims to murder Americans in Iraq.
