I didn't agree with every last claim made in Bruce Bawer's book about the Islamist threat in Europe (my review is here) but to argue that it's somehow racist is just silly.

A point, sir critic. If you think, as I do, that the development of our modern world followed the sequence N. Italy, netherlands, Britain, then the Netherlands is a good candidate for a "heart".

Bawer's argument is cultural, not racist.
But labeling him a racist is the easiest way to shut him up.
