Another example of how Mark Steyn (and the Warren) understand demographics

(posted from an e-mail at El-ahrairah's request -- CH)

All readers of the Warren (how many are there?) will know that the Cap’n has posted before about birth rates and demographics. His last post illustrated just how much influence on the political process gays and liberals (who do not have children) will have 20 years down the line compared to him and his wife (four children).

Mark Steyn has used this to illustrate why Europe will become Eurarabia due to falling birth rates and as a quick example, here is a new item (http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/070403/world/egypt_population) from Yahoo! Canada about birth rates in Egypt. For those too lazy to read the news item, the headline sums it all up “Egyptian baby born every 23 seconds”. If Egyptian’s are having kids every 23 seconds, how fast do you think Muslims in Europe are having children? Europeans like to whine and moan about risible theories like global warming, but can’t see the train wreck of population demographics that will arrive 20 years in the future. Maybe they s hould change their tourist slogans to something along the lines of “Europe: Soon to be under new management”.
