Muslim Population in the EU Expanding Like Mosquitos

It has been lectured repeatedly by the likes of Mark Steyn and Robert Spencer that the spread of Islam around the world doesn't have to be through violence because, simply stated, participants in western culture are not reproducing in sufficient numbers to sustain themselves. In effect the Muslims will be able to propagate themselves into commanding majorities where population voids are left by a shrinking number of westerners.

I pointed to an example of this the other day in The Brussels Journal where it was noted that Muslim immigrants had impacted local elections in The Netherlands.

In Aftenposten today, the infamous Muslim Cleric Mullah Krekar seems decidely optimistic over the demographic shift.

"We're the ones who will change you," Krekar told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in his first interview since an uproar broke out over cartoons deemed offensive to Muslims.

"Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes," Krekar said. "Every western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries are producing 3.5 children.

"By 2050, 30 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim."

He claimed that "our way of thinking... will prove more powerful than yours."
As far as much of Europe is concerned I'm afraid he is right.
