I'm afraid it will nurture some of the less savoury tendencies from Europe's pass.

For hundreds of years, the main military and civilisational threat to Western Europe came from "The East" - the Middle East and the Russian steppes. Its almost built into the racial memory of Europeans, like a bad nightmare best forgotten.
