I am a Assimilated Muslim

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

Submitted by Imran1977 (United Kingdom), Sep 8, 2015 at 16:48

I generally like Mr Daniel Pipes Articles on ISLAM, BUT what I do not get is why he love Mass Immigration so much.

Europe does not need Mass Immigration, but LIMITED SKILLED/STRUCTURE IMMIGRATION. As mentioned I am a 3rd Generation Assimilated Euro-Muslim, and Inter-Married with a local girl, its more and more common especially amongst Euro born Muslims, and Middle/Upper Class (I would generally say I am Muslim in Name Only, Generally 90% Secular)..... If push came to shove I would chose Europe over Islam, because Europe made me what I am. I think Muslims will Assimilate in America/Canada and Australia Much Better. As there is a strong tradition to Assimilate and has always been a high intemarriage/union rate between the various groups.....

However they won't Assimilate as well in Europe (but unusually Ethnicities from the same back ground but different religion, Hindus/Arab Christians and Bhuddist seem to assimilate and intermarry at higher rates), though I noticed Muslim IM Rates are actually increasing significantly in recent years, I suspect these are mainly the Middle and Upper Class/Educated Muslims.

IF Assimilation DOES NOT WORK (I hope to god it does) to put it another way - A "tapestry or pane glass window" is NOT as strong as a triple glazed/laminated window, so Assimilation is best in the Medium and Longer term, and Integration of Immigrants very important in the short term.

The Bottom line is if we take the current refugee Crisis, 100's of Thousand are flooding into Europe (with potential for 100's or 1000's of Jihadists), Its madness, we just cannot cope, Longer Term. It needs to stop, European Leaders have become so soft, if Europe wants to it can block all these refugees (Like what Thailand and Australia did with the boat people) and also have major restrictions on Immigration/a time out, that is desperately what Europe and the West needs, so we can all fuse into one coherent group, a nation with a COMMON Culture/Language and thus values/morals and some traditions is simply common sense (nothing racist about that).....

Yes Europe and the West Since the 1960's (Cultural Marxist Era) has become decendant and lost its faith/honour, however Importing a 3rd World barbaric and tribal culture, that has barely given anything to the world (and I say this as a Secular/Muslim Person most of the so called Muslim Inventions, were by Apostates/Christians and Jews)! God Bless Europe, I believe it will prevail and the West will prevail in the end.... but in the short/medium term it will have to go through some turbulent times.

Submitting....
