The front page of CNN.com screams this headline and subheadlines: The story mentions everything to explain “how Belgium became of hotbed of violent jihadist ideology,” including, of course, “racism,” except one thing. Immigration. No Muslims, no jihadists.[ The story mentions]

Belgian Prime Minister Jan Jambon says the government is at fault for not making crazy Muslims “feel at home”:

Jambon says the majority of young Muslims are well integrated into Belgian society, but admits his government has more to do to make some feel “at home” in their own country, given that a sense of alienation can leave them open to the threat of radicalization.

“We’re talking about third- and fourth-generation [immigrants]; these youngsters are born in Belgium, even their fathers and mothers are born in Belgium, and still they are open for these kind of messages. This is not normal — in the U.S., the second generation was the President; here, the fourth generation is an IS fighter — so that is really something we have to work on.”

It actually took an imam, Imam Sheikh Sulayman Van Ael, to explain that Muslims have to assimilate:
“There is no reason why you shouldn’t feel Belgian — this is the country you were raised in. This is the country where you have been fed, where you went to school, where you had your friends, where you practiced your sports. So why all of a sudden you don't feel Belgian?” he asks.

“There is no reason to feel like that. I believe that it is part of our Islam that we protect the country we were raised in and that we try to make the country we live in prosper.”

Of course, Muslims who believe as Van Ael are suspected  of disloyalty to Islam by other Muslims.

The Europeans will either replace traitors like Jambon or they are doomed.
