Quote:
According to a new Chatham House survey of more than 10,000 people from 10 European states, we now know what people think about migration from mainly Muslim countries, and as Chatham House notes, "the results are striking and sobering." They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trumpís electorate in the US but is fairly widespread.

In the survey, carried out prior President Trumpís executive order was announced, respondents were given the following statement: ĎAll further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stoppedí. They were then asked to what extent did they agree or disagree with this statement. Overall, across all 10 of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped, 25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed.

Furthermore, majorities in all but two of the ten states agreed, ranging from 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany and 51% in Italy to 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain. In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%. In short, more than half of Europeans agree with Donald Trump.


I've predicted before that Europe will go down the route of severely restricting and potentially stopping any further Muslim migration into their countries.

Looks like this poll indicates significant support for such a policy - currently only being promoted by the right-wing populists. How long before the mainstream centre-right take this on board?

Trump, however, was blocking people who already had visas for whatever reason.

I'm a big fan of equality between the sexes. I'm also pretty keen on gays having the same rights as everyone else. I don't see Muslims being keen on either of these things so why would I want to let them in? Their values are not compatible with typical Western European values.

The "letting them in" issue is a question of who has a visa.

In my latest blog post I have written on what I consider is the most likely outcome for the future of Europe, incorporating peak oil, resource scarcity, state collapses and Islam.
