This trend will continue to play out in Europe, as long as leftist politicians insist on Europeans surrendering their culture to immigrants.
Ehem ... in Austria, they always had either a conservative or a social-democratic or a coalition (of both parties) government.
I wonder what will happen now, since Haider died http=www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-haider11-2008oct11,0,7175732.story?track=rss][b]in a car accident[/b] earlier this morning.

And this means what?
"Besides that," are you actually unable to distinguish between immigration from outside Europe and historical immigration from the eastern parts of the Empire?
I would hazard a guess that the immigrants from the eastern parts of the Empire viewed assimilation much more favorably than do modern immigrants from outside Europe.
I would also hazard a guess that Austrian socio-government was less tolerant of the resistance of immigrants from the eastern parts of the Empire towards assimilation than it is towards a similar resistance from today's immigrants.
Haider’s death offers little hope for the fight against the far right
Joefromchicago was straight on the case here yesterday to comment on the death of Jörg Haider, the charismatic far right leader who has left such an imprint on Austrian politics these last two decades.
Haider was the scourge of Austria, and his self-inflicted death by speeding will not be mourned by many democrats. Unfortunately though, his death does little to stop the renewed momentum for the extreme right in the country.
After suffering an electoral rout in 2002 and a bitter split in 2005, the Austrian far right has demonstrated its resilience, regrouping and coming right back up again to score its best elections result ever earlier this year. And the story of its resurgence offers a sobering lesson for those European democrats who believed that the far right could be defeated through cooptation. It provides a similar reality check for those who were still betting on the far right’s dependency on rare charismatic leaders.
