Will Poland Have to Defend Europe from Islam Again?
For the violent border-breachers, there is Warsaw's willingness to refrain from the use of lethal weapons until further notice. This may not be much, but compared to the alternative, or even to the many battles since 1621, it is not a little thing, either. Nevertheless, there is a lot to gain from practicing the effective closing of a border. The Polish example has become a valuable lesson for the entire continent. As in centuries past, what is difficult but unavoidable for Poland is proving to be crucially important for the future of Germany and the rest of the European Union.
