A metric space is a 2-tuple (X,d) where X is a set and d is a metric on X.
In mathematics, a tuple is a finite sequence of objects (a list of a limited number of objects).
Other embedding constructions show that every metric space is isometrically isomorphic to a closed subset of some normed vector space and that every complete metric space is isometrically isomorphic to a closed subset of some Banach space.

 Muslim Europe - article by Daniel Pipes
"Europe becomes more and more a province of Islam, a colony of Islam." So declares Oriana Fallaci in her new book, La Forza della Ragione, or, "The Force of Reason." And the famed Italian journalist is right: Christianity's ancient stronghold of Europe is rapidly giving way to Islam.
Europe is increasingly a post-Christian society, one with a diminishing connection to its tradition and its historic values.
Europe has simultaneously reached unprecedented heights of prosperity and peacefulness and shown a unique inability to sustain itself.
