Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: Wishful thinking

Oh, I grow weary of you always being the victim and it is always others who cause your misfortune. Such wealth in Muslim countries that could have been used for the good of mankind but instead even Muslims find better opportunity in the West which you hate so much.

The West capitalistic? I am afraid you have not thought about it enough. We have so many social programs in the west that completely contradicts what you say. Are we perfect? Most assuredly not, but we are not the cause of all the problems that Muslims are always shouting about. I think that it makes it easy for Muslims to blame others for their misfortune then they do not have to confront them. There are many people in the West that welcome strangers and people of other faiths and from other countries. I have seen it first hand. I think it is a shame that you hate the country you have decided to make your home.
