Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/26/2012Mario Draghi, the president of the European Central Bank, told an audience in London that the ECB would do whatever it takes to save the euro. The financial markets responded positively, and European stock prices rallied as a result. Meanwhile, Citigroup analysts say there is a 90% chance that Greece will abandon the euro.

In other news, a pair of female hikers in Switzerland was attacked by a herd of cows. One of the women sustained head injuries from the attack, and is undergoing hospital treatment.

Aspiring invaders of Switzerland beware! Even the cows don't mess around.

The current issue of ISNA’s bi-monthly magazine Islamic Horizons carries an article about ISNA’s demand for gun control.

Muslims demand gun control.
That's just one of several excellent reasons to engage in defiance of gun control.

“Because we’re very multicultural, we cook traditional dishes from various countries, so sometimes Caribbean, sometimes north African, Somalian, Eritrean, Asian.”

English? English? ENGLISH?
Yeah, you're really multicultural!
The West doesn't even exist to these conquerors.

Will Greece leave the euro before the September 12th elections in the Netherlands when Geert Wilders will sweep to power and the Netherlands will get the guilder back? Just wishful thinking!! If I remember rightly, when the euro was introduced in Holland a lot of Dutch put all their savings into American dollars. What a foresighted bunch. Also, according to my wife; and she is never wrong, sales of gold and diamonds on the Continent have rocketed. I wonder why?

It is not just the invaders who think that English food is dull and boring and not worth mentioning and everybody else's
( I think Dutch food is pretty bland as well ) is vibrant and exciting. Just as with the Swedes the liberal opinion formers keep asking what English culture is, does it exist and if it does it is not a patch on Bollywood or the Notting Hill Carnival or Chinese New Year. Funny, we have so much in common with the Swedes in that respect. That Swedish politician who described Swedish culture as dancing round the Maypole on Midsummer's Eve and as just rubbish would not be impressed by morris dancing or English children dancing around the Maypole either. North European culture is slow and gentle - I don't include Germans in lederhosen slapping their thighs - whereas the cultures of the Indian Sub-continent and Africans and West Indians are so much more "colourful and exciting". North European culture is slow and gentle because that is what North Europeans are and that is why their countries were so peaceful and stable, not the crime-ridden hell-holes they have become since importing more vibrant and exciting cultures.
