I do not believe they can assimilate

Reader comment on item: Muslims in the West: Can Conflict Be Averted?

This may sound defeatist, or even non-PC, but as I see it, the facts, are the facts. I welcome anyone to criticize, as I have only studied this briefly, albeit from a number of angles. (as I am British, no pun intended).

According to the Koran, Muslims are simply NOT allowed to integrate. In the first generation, they gladly accept the different way of life - in general, it is better than the one they left behind. But successive generations, take on board their Muslim identity, rather than their nationality ( not where they feel they originated from). -simply because, they have no identity (unless they become 'successful') in the foreign country. And they have no idea of the problems in their country of origination. (Which, from what I have read , is generally blamed on 'the west', or 'zionism'.

Their 'Islamicness' unites them. And because of the concept of the 'umma' , the community, this unites across the board. They have a common cause. And this common cause, is NOT necessarily in their host nations interest. It is then a small step, to create a feeling of isolation, and alienation, from the host country.

Where do these concepts stem from?

What is the Koran? It is (as quoted by a leading Muslim Cleric) a logical, theological, supremacist, ideological doctrine, suited to the needs of Muslims.

I didn't understand that, really, I'm not political. But it sounds a bit like Fascism, or Nazism, in which it has something in common.
