Mickey Kaus remains the most interesting journalist straddling media Old and New — and, once again, ties combatting terrorism with welfare reform:
As described by Johnson, the fitful but increasing German efforts at assimilating Muslims take the form of eliminating their ability to cry “discrimination” and restricting immigration. The mystery left unanswered is why Germany doesn’t take the simpler, more obvious step — allowing immigration, but denying immigrants the welfare benefits that support an unassimilated opposition culture.
No, I’m not just linking this because it helps support my argument that a poorer Europe won’t be able to afford its preference to accomodate terror.
Well, maybe a little.
