THE STRANGE DEATH OF EUROPE
Douglas Murray's new book confronts the Islamization of Europe.
The Strange Death of Europe's 320 densely-packed pages open with four irrefutable words: "Europe is committing suicide."
In his book “The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam,” Murray points out that these attitudes existed long before the migrant crisis. But this didn’t stop European politicians from insisting that immigration was a good in and of itself, which is why they have been importing more and more people since the 1990s.
Murray argues that this is a colossal betrayal — not only have the wishes of the peoples of Europe been spurned for decades, but the “multicultural fantasy” has also proven to be a wretched failure.
