Avoiding a European Intifada

In the wake of the Islamic attacks in Paris last night, as the death toll gradually rises as more and more bodies are discovered and as more people expire from fatal injuries, people all over Europe are today realising that what we are witnessing could have happened in any large European town or city, and probably will unless something radical is done to prevent it, now!
