I've been reading a couple books not necessarily about Anti-Americanism, but how radical Islam is sweeping over the European continent. This in a way is connected to Anti-Americanism (according to what I've read) because the majority of European politicians side with the PLO and detest American politics because we are allied with Israel. I'm just curious to know how true and how prevelant this movement is in Europe. I know ever since America has invaded Iraq, Anti-Americanism has been at an all time high in other countries. It's almost to the point where it is becoming a sport. I'm not a big fan of George Bush, as most Americans would say the same, but quite frankly I'm starting to get a little sick and tired of American bashing. From my viewpoint, it seems that many Europeans see us as ignorant, stupid, and patriotic to the point of blindness. I think this is due to the fact of how the European media portrays us. Europeans accuse our media of being blatantly one-sided;one which spoon feeds us lies. But at the same time, I feel that the European media is doing exactly the same. If you look at Europe you will notice that there are many radical muslims (keep in mind I don't have anything against the Islamic faith-only the fundamentalists) that are pouring their way into politics. Look at the Madrid bombing, London attacks, and the Paris riots. But yet, European politicians refuse to see any threat. Europe prides itself on equality and tolerance. That's great!!! But it almost becomes to the point where political correctness becomes so pervasive, that more harm than good will be done. I'm not trying to bash Europe, but I have a sinking feeling that Europe is turning a blind eye to a situation that is festering, and may ultimately get worse. It would be nice to hear from others (especially Europeans who have a first hand experience).
