Janis Urbanovich. Abraham's European  Marquee

With all the illusions of a «veritable European» the «national state» concept as a pure monoethnical system has already become out of date for about seven decades. The acknowledgement of common values does not mean to yield to a «strange» culture, but rather provides a basis for true public integration  and multiculturalism. It's very painful for Europeans to accept a necessity of forming a Christian-Islamic moral platform. The desire to keep the right for haughtiness intact is fraught with more harm and problems.
