VIOLENCE, REPRESSION PUSHING EUROPE TOWARD 'CIVIL WAR'
The unprecedented influx of Muslim migrants into Europe is fueling civil unrest as well as government repression directed against the native population, say experts who warn similar crackdowns on criticism of Islam could be coming to America.
In recent days, police in the Netherlands questioned and threatened to charge citizens who made Internet postsprotesting government plans to resettle migrants in their communities.
In Calais, France, thousands of migrants have settled in a ramshackle settlement outside the city. Rather than removing them, the French government recently banned a demonstration by the Pegida group, which has called for resistance to Islam’s growing control over European life and the expulsion of the migrants.
A similar march planned for Birmingham, England, has been condemned by both Labour and Conservative members of Parliament for the city.
Facebook has also announced a Europe-wide campaign to eliminate the “dissemination of xenophobia, hate speech or calls of violence,” including donating more than $1 million to “anti-hate” organizations.
