Lord Weidenfeld published an interesting article in the German tabloid Bild recently. Weidenfeld is a Jew who was born in Austria but fled the country for Britain after the Nazi Anschluss in 1938 then acquired UK citizenship. He worked for the BBC for a while as a political commentator, although I doubt sentiments like these will be heard on the BBC any time soon.
The forces that confront us and threaten our democratic, political institutions, are inspired by a fanaticism that stirs up the flames of a merciless religion and an anti-western ideology against those very ideals that hold we Europeans together.

The extreme Islamists are serious when they talk about future Jihad, the reconquest of a lost empire.

The terror offensive, as it played out on 11 September 2001 in New York, must be considered a turning point and a grim warning. The Arab Spring was an uprising of the powerless, but it quickly turned into another period of political uncertainty, threatening the reign of terror of radical elements. Three-quarters of Egypt's voters sought salvation in radical parties inclined towards religious fanaticism.
