Will Europe collapse without continued Muslim immigration? That seems to be the view of senior EU officials such as Federica Mogherini.
Mogherini, an Italian former Communist, is the current High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. This basically makes her the EU’s Minister for Foreign Affairs. She gave an interesting interview with the major Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera in early February 2017.
In the interview, Mogherini claimed that mass migration is impossible to stop. She further stated that the European economy would become paralyzed and that Europe would “collapse” demographically without continued immigration.
Admittedly, in this particular paragraph, Mogherini did not specifically mention the words Islam, Islamic or Muslim. However, on other occasions, she has made it abundantly clear that Muslim immigration is part of what Europe needs to avoid a collapse.
Federica Mogherini made such remarks at an Islam in Europe conference in June 2015. She then dismissed any notion of a clash between Islam and the West, stating that “Islam holds a place in our Western societies. Islam belongs in Europe. It holds a place in Europe’s history, in our culture, in our food and — what matters most — in Europe’s present and future.” Europeans should celebrate “diversity,” which includes Islam. She further stated that “I am not afraid to say that political Islam should be part of the picture.”
Mogherini said that:
“Some people are now trying to convince us that a Muslim cannot be a good European citizen, that more Muslims in Europe will be the end of Europe. These people are not just mistaken about Muslims: these people are mistaken about Europe — that is my core message — they have no clue what Europe and the European identity are. This is our common fight: to make this concept accepted both in Europe and beyond Europe. For Europe and Islam face some common challenges in today’s world. The so-called Islamic State is putting forward an unprecedented attempt to pervert Islam for justifying a wicked political and strategic project.”
Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have crossed the Mediterranean in 2015, 2016 and 2017, headed for Europe. The European Union’s way of dealing with immigration is through cooperation and partnership, not confrontation. Mogherini told the media this ahead of a summit on Malta in 2017. “We do not believe in walls or bans,” she added. She further stated that there should be no discrimination against migrants based on faith.
