The Surrender of the Public Square
I see my old friend Boris Johnson is in trouble for comparing burqas to "letterboxes". Like letterboxes, the body bags on European streets are useful for delivering a message - and the message is getting through loud and clear. The annexation of the public space, early and often, is a conscious strategy on the part of Islamic supremacists that serves to accelerate demographic trends. While the Muslim population is not yet a majority, taking over parks and streets usefully gives the impression that your numbers are greater than they are, and thereby helps speed the process by which "multicultural" neighborhoods become uniculturally Islamic neighborhoods. Same with burqas.
