How on earth can you say Europeans are the shining light of liberalism and democracy?
You do realise that the US, Australia etc are essentially European culture countries? I.e. parts of what is collectively thought of as the West, inheriting traditions and philosophies from the Greeks 2500 years ago. Trying to split hairs and pretend Europe is as politically backwards as the Middle East or greater Asia is laughable.
The UK, Ireland, and former British colonies (Canada, the USA, NZ and OZ, plus South Africa and so forth) have never slipped into out and out Fascism or similar
Democracy has a 2500 year history on the continent. Nowhere else can say that.
