A prominent Catholic priest wants European Christians to fight off Islam with a unique weapon: babies. Father Piero Gheddo, an Italian missionary priest, said Wednesday he believes a declining birth rate among Europeans combined with a rising tide of Muslim immigrants could mean that Islam will soon dominate Europe. "Certainly from a demographic point of view, as it is clear to everyone that Italians are decreasing by 120,000 or 130,000 persons a year because of abortion and broken families; while among the more than 200,000 legal immigrants a year in Italy, more than half are Muslims and Muslim families, which have a much higher level of growth," he said, according to Rome’s Catholic news service Zenit News Agency.

Palestinian Intellectual in Norway: Muslims Living Here Must Look Out For Their Country’s Security
In early July 2010, Norwegian police announced the arrest of three individuals living in Oslo for involvement in planning terror attacks on Norwegian soil. The Norwegian press reported that the attacks were thwarted and the arrests made possible due to information provided to authorities by members of the local Muslim community.
In the wake of these events, Ahmad Abu Matar, a Palestinian intellectual residing in Norway, wrote a column praising the Muslims in the country for their moderation and for their cooperation with the authorities in the fight against terror elements. He said that the Arabs and Muslims in Norway should help maintain security out of their religious beliefs.
