Dr. Pipes

Thank you very much and indeed very good.

I want to bring to your attention that there is an Egyptian historian (I do not recall his name now but I will try to see if I can find his article) and he wrote about the very significant and large Greek population that lived in Egypt until the late 1960's and also "refused" to intergrate and spoke Greek and not Egyptian Arabic and lived in Greek enclaves in Alexandria and Cairo and sent their children to Greek schools and were called by the Egyptians: khawgaat or foreigners inspite of the fact that many of them were born in Egypt and following Nasser nationalizations of foreign as well as domestic companies in Egypt in the 1960's most of them left

I wonder if this would also happen to the large Muslim populations and that they might also leave if the economies in their native countries improve and our economies in the west decline

So it seems to me that may be the answer is to help with improving economies in places like Pakistan as the answer to Muslim immigration to the west
