A friend pointed me to Simmons' unfortunate capture by the Eurabia meme. Not two years ago, I did a post ("France, its Muslims, and the Future") actually examining the demographics. I came to the conclusion that, although the French Muslim populations are demographically younger and somewhat more fertile than their non-Muslim counterparts, the gap wouldn't be nearly enough to allow for a takeover of France, never mind Europe. Assuming that French Muslims weren't assimilating at all, which they in fact are at an impressive rate. Their problem isn't Islamic fundamentalism; rather, it's the social exclusion shared not by poor Muslims with other poor immigrant communities (the Portuguese, say) and the "ethnically" French.
