Let's not make the same mistake as Europe!
By Larry Klayman

You do not have to be well-educated, and most of our populace regrettably is not, to realize that ancient Rome fell after it stupidly allowed barbarians though its gates. Sure, there were social and political issues contributing to the fall of this great empire, but it was the rot from within – exacerbated by the barbarians – that put the nail in Rome's coffin.

As a young man at Duke University, I majored in both French and European politics. I studied my junior year in Aix-en-Provence, France, wrote a thesis titled "Les Evenements de Mai 1968," which dealt with a student-communist uprising in the country that almost overthrew the government of President Charles de Gaulle, and graduated with honors as a result. Later, after law school and a stint as a prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice, I joined an international trade law firm. Taking a hiatus from the firm, I served as a "stagiare," or intern, in what was then called the European Community in Brussels, Belgium.

Years later, I married an Italian ironically from Rome, started my own international trade law and litigation firm and learned to speak Italian as well. One thus could hardly say that I am anti-European, and in fact the opposite is true. But there also is another hard reality: As much as European culture has contributed to the world over the centuries, Europeans have an incredible documented ability to ignorantly shoot themselves in the foot. This explains two world wars, which were largely avoidable. These wars decimated most of Europe and resulted, in the last go-round, in mass genocide of 6 million-plus Jews and others. This tragedy is now being repeated once again by countries such as France, Belgium, Italy and Germany. Blindly and stupidly, these and other European states continue to allow Muslims to enter their gates in massive droves. And, with the Paris, Brussels and not too long ago London and Madrid Islamic terrorist attacks, to name just a few, we see that the barbarians are once again hard at work. The demise of EgyptAir Flight 804 is just the latest example.

While our Muslim in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, as usual refuses to call Muslim terrorist attacks "radical Islamic terrorism," as does the Wicked Witch of the Left, Hillary Clinton, who is trying to capitalize politically on presidential candidate Donald Trump's call to ban Muslim immigration for the time being, one has to call a spade a spade. The two of them, adding in such corrupt "geniuses" as Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, are like the three monkeys "Hear No Evil, See No Evil and Do No Evil." For the rest of us less-politicized sane persons, it is clear that the Muslim threat is real and growing.

In France, for instance, there is an exploding Muslim population, fueled not just by refugees from Syria, but also its native Algerian Arab population. Thanks to the more than generous French welfare state, Algerians immigrating to and living in France are able to afford many more children than their Muslim brothers and sisters in Algeria proper. And why not? Having kids is easier than working, much like the proverbial bumper sticker I once saw as a young lawyer in Washington, D.C. "Vote Democrat; Its Easier than Working." But these Muslims do not rise even to the level of American Democrats – as bad as many on the far left are. They are nearly totally cut off from the rest of France, as they refuse to assimilate but prefer to stay in ghettos and generally marinate in their hatred of Western Judeo-Christian values. In the Muslim ghettos of not just French Marseille and Paris, but also of Belgium, Germany, Italy and elsewhere, is where Islamic terrorist cells take root and metastasize into the hordes of barbarians they have generally become.

Sometimes venturing out to find "legitimate" work for ulterior terrorist purposes, despite the social welfare bonanza of Europe, these hostile Muslims gravitate to and embed themselves in public works authorities, such as airports and bus and train stations. Citing a number of other reports, Townhall recently disclosed:

"The Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris has forced France to examine its security policies, including at Charles de Gaulle Airport, where it was recently discovered that 57 employees who had access to airplanes and runways were on a terror watch list."

And, the same is true at airports in Germany, Italy and, as we saw most recently, Brussels, Belgium.

This helps explain the likelihood that a bomb was planted by a Muslim airport worker at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport, bringing down EgyptAir Flight 804 in the Mediterranean.

We in the United States are presently only slightly more sane than the Europeans, and indeed, Los Angeles International Airport just last Friday issued a terror alert, tacitly recognizing that it, too, has a Muslim problem among its employees. But this domestic Muslim problem at airports, worsened by the decimation of our TSA under the Muslim in Chief – manifesting itself recently in long lines for travelers to pass through security – is nowhere near what Europe has blindly and stupidly foisted upon itself.

Put simply, the great European civilizations of France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain, to name just a few nation states, are on the verge of literally blowing up at the hands of their growing Muslim populations. As for Great Britain, the capital city of London now even has a Muslim mayor, who could not have been elected without the votes of the massive hordes of Muslims that live and vote there. And London's Muslim mayor, this latest "soul brother" of Obama, indeed Britain's own "Manchurian candidate," has already expressed his hatred for presidential candidate Donald Trump and his support for such corrupt fools as Hillary Clinton who would welcome more Muslims to our shores.

Yes, its time not to repeat the mistakes of ancient Rome and modern-day Europe and stop the flow of barbarians through our gates, before it is too late! Trump's proposal to temporarily ban Muslim immigration does not even go far enough! The ban should not be temporary but permanent, less we sow the seeds of our own destruction, European-style!

Now is not the time for political correctness. There is no constitutional right for non-citizens or non-permanent residents to immigrate to our shores, much less remain in our country if they are regrettably already here! And, that is why Trump's plan to deport illegal aliens also makes sense, and why Obama's attempted blanket amnesty to over 5 million illegal must be legally put to an end.
