.... Since 2008, the top seven baby boys’ names in Brussels were Mohammed, Adam, Rayan, Ayoub, Mehdi, Amine and Hamza. Mohammed is also the most popular name for baby boys in Belgium’s second-largest city, Antwerp, where an estimated 40% of elementary school children are Muslim.

A secret EU paper, reported on by Haaretz on Friday, shows that the Europeans want to 'help' Israel to do as good a job as they have done in integrating their Muslim populations:
The European Union should consider Israel's treatment of its Arab population a "core issue, not second tier to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," according to a classified working paper produced by European embassies in Israel, parts of which were obtained by Haaretz.
This is an unprecedented document in that it deals with internal Israeli issues. According to European diplomats and senior Foreign Ministry officials, it was written and sent to EU headquarters in Brussels behind the back of the Israeli government.

Foreign Ministry officials said they had heard about it unofficially from some European diplomats a few weeks ago, but to date no Israeli official has been able to obtain a copy....

Apparently, Palestinian rejectionism has become so overwhelmingly undeniable during the last two years, with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu repeatedly offering to start negotiations without preconditions and PA leader Abbas repeatedly declining, that the Europeans felt they had to brainstorm new ideas ahead of schedule....
