Joshua Runyan’s comments are well taken (“Respond with Unity,” Jan. 16). However, refusing to call a spade a spade with regard to these incidents merely reinforces the idea that the Jews of Europe are afraid. The fact is that Islam in general is not conducive to assimilation into Western societies.
It is beyond me why European countries continue to try to absorb more and more Muslims when Arab countries continue to trash Western ideas and religions. Europe should seriously cut down on Arab/Muslim immigration, cancel the passports of its citizens who travel for jihad or jihadi training, and stop pretending that concessions to the Palestinians will solve the issue of Islamic fundamentalist terror.
