Why the West is going west

Demographically, in order for a society to maintain itself for 25 years, there needs to be a birth rate of 2.11.

John Benton

The last set of birth rates for countries within Europe I could find independently confirmed was from the BBC in 2004. They were as follows: Ireland 1.99; France 1.9; Norway 1.81; Sweden 1.75; UK 1.74; Germany 1.37; Italy 1.33; Spain 1.32; Greece 1.29. The birth rate in Britain, along within those of many other EU countries, as you see, is well below the required level. This inevitably means that the West, as we have known it, is in decline. Indeed with booming Islamic birth rates in Europe, Colonel Gadafi of Libya is quoted as saying, ‘There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe, without swords, without guns…We don’t need terrorists… The 50+ million Muslims will turn it into a Muslim continent within decades.’
