Multiculturalism is a highly absurd and toxic doctrine that dictates the following: all cultures are equal. And it is this doctrine that has stifled any and all critical debate concerning the hyper-supremacist practices of the world's most lethal ideology - Islam.
Western leaders such as Barack Obama, David Cameron and Angela Merkel have used the power of the bully pulpit to not only advance multiculturalism, but to also bring scorn upon those who dare challenge it. Individuals (as well as organizations) that raise even the most tepid critique of Islam (and its archaic practices) are quickly labeled racists or Islamophobic by political elites and their allies.
The dangerous narrative set forth by Western leaders, that Islam is a virtuous and tolerant religion, certainly beclouds the very history of the so-called religion of peace. A history - mind you - of barbaric hostilities starting with Mohammed's actions at the Battle of The Trench in 627 AD to the most recent Islamo-terror attacks in Belgium that claimed 35 innocents.
Manifestly, Europe's obsession with multiculturalism (when it comes to its own history) has created a powerful mental block. While Cameron and Merkel are laboring feverishly to equate Islam with Western values, history tells us that the Crusades were launched in the year 1099 by Pope Urban II in order to combat 450 years of Islamic aggression. (An aggression based on Koranic dogma that not only violated Western values and beliefs, but also threatened their very existence.)
And, make no mistake - it is this very obsession that has produced one of the root causes of jihad. By allowing mass Islamic migration (with the feckless notion that all cultures are equal) Western leaders have imported the very jihadists that seek to destroy democracy.
The blood shed by Islamo-terrorists in Belgium is not only on their nefarious hands, but it is also on the hands of the multiculturalists in Brussels that allowed their country to be infested by those who adhere to a medieval doctrine of death.
In the final analysis, multiculturalism is more dangerous than Islam because it dictates that all cultures are equal while shutting down any dissenting viewpoints via the heavy hand of government. And (as we have seen in both Europe and America) this has allowed jihad to strike at the very heart of Western civilization.
And if this trend is allowed to continue, the West will be reduced to an Islamic outpost.
