"I am not anti-Muslim. I am just trying to preserve European heritage and freedom. Do you still want to fire a missile at my glass house?"

We agree that Euros must preserve their culture. All immigrants must abide by the rules and the norms of the receiving country. No doubt about it. But the problem that is there is the fact that multi-culturalism is the culture in the West. Muslims only do as the other minorities do.

If the West gives up Multi-culturalism, then you may be making a wonderful point. Unfortunatly, your Christian point does not hold water in the Legal Rational West where religion is personal and do touch state culture. Maybe a better way to put it, is making a religions symbols free West. I bet you the first and strogest people in the world will not allow that to happen.

Let us adopt Dr Pipes arguments, let Muslims be Muslims at home and citizens in society with keeping an eye open on the would be radical elements. Such a perfect idea one can not disagree with.. but again, we should disagree sometimes to be able to fire something..we can not just hear and say amen.
