The European and Eurasian Unions confuse large Muslim populations with international influence. Obama made that same mistake when he asserted proudly that the United States was one of the world’s biggest Muslim countries. Having a large Muslim minority is a source of conflict, not power.
Advanced countries with large Muslim minority populations include the United States, France, Thailand and Israel. In all of these countries, the Muslim minority has been an explosive element spurring conflict, terrorism and cycles of violence that are never broken.
China understands that stability is more important than size. The younger world powers trying to compete with it would do well to learn that simple lesson.

HE’S GOT A MILLION OF EM
Sadly Oliver Stone is too stupid to be cynical. Too red and too brain dead to feel any shame when pounding out sentences like, “Whatever moral authority the United States gained for helping the Soviets defeat Germany in World War II.”There are so many things wrong with that sentence, it’s almost hard to list them all. If anything it was the Soviets, former allies of Hitler, who helped the United States defeat Hitler. The Soviet Union was losing a war of attrition that it survived with the help of American supplies. The idea that Soviet troops could have singlehandedly made it to Berlin without a western front is worth less than the leftover cocaine in Stone’s vest pocket.
Worse still, Oliver Stone thinks that the United States gained moral authority from turning over Eastern Europe to brutal dictatorships, rather than from the liberation of Western Europe.
But that’s just one sentence and Stone has a million of them. Or dozens at any rate.

HIT HARD OR GO HOME
If anyone expected Joe Lhota to be able to play Giuliani, they were disappointed. Like so many Republicans, including Mitt Romney, Lhota, despite being down over 40 points, was too afraid to hit a man whom the media decided was “likable”.And so Lhota is going to lose. Unless the welfare class and the unions licking their lips at being able to eat the city whole and spit out the crumbs on what’s left of Detroit somehow decide to stay home on election day, New York City will have a radical left-wing mayor.
And it’s Lhota’s fault.
Bill de Blasio was a political activist for a murderous Communist regime that burned churches and synagogues. And the media will make a federal case out of a Lhota sneeze.
That’s what Lhota is up against and he is only slowly coming to that realization, which, like too many Republicans, has only made him more timid.
