The Coptic Cathedral in Cairo has been bombed, it is thought by the Muslim Brotherhood, leaving 25 dead.
It is a strange time to live through, when Christians in the Middle-East have been under attack by Muslims, and yet the mainline Christian churches are falling over themselves to promote Islamic immigration to the West.
Why would you want to set the scene for the same things to happen here?
I know that part of the answer is that the belief systems dominating the West make it seem as if this is a virtuous thing to do. But I can't help but think as well that some people are motivated by their feelings, and this means that what matters to them is their own feelings in the moment, rather than a sober assessment of what the policies they support might lead to in 10 or 20 or 30 years time.
In other words, if you feel right now that you aren't threatened by open borders, and you get a good feeling right now that you are acting selflessly and beneficially to help others, then that is what matters to someone who is motivated by his or her emotions.
The problem is that reality will eventually make itself felt. Eventually mass immigration will transform your own suburb, not just someone else's, so that you yourself become the outsider looking in. And at some point the same negative social consequences of mass immigration will emerge here just as they have elsewhere.
Politics shouldn't be about feelings in the moment. Politics has to be long-sighted, and this requires a healthy dose of prudence.
