Thank you, JS!

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn
in response to reader comment: Actually...

JS, Italy has just become a nation of immigrants, after being a nation of emigrants. When the Italians went to America, how did you differentiate the hard-working ones from the mafia? You couldn't. Now, Italy has got the highest immigration- rate in Europe. And I am very happy to welcome any kind of immigrant. You are welcome to come here, JS.

Now, you have got to understand that Muslim immigrants are different from Asians or any other kind of immigrants. Even in Canada and the USA, racial integration of Muslims will not be that simple. The ultra-right is evil. I agree. But, you cannot change the law of gravity. If the ultra- right believe in the law of gravity, it does not make the law of gravity wrong. In this case, the law of gravity is that the integration of Muslims is more difficult than the integration of any other immigrant. Is this racist? Is it xenophobic? Is it ultra- right? Or do Muslims really have a tougher time integrating than others?
