And that also begs the question of why do they come here? The pro-Islam posters here keep referring to America and the West as the Great Satan, and as being evil, corrupt, immoral, crime ridden, etc. Why then do they leave their so-called bastions of peace, prosperity, and learning, and move to our terrible land?

Common sense tell us that people move in order to make a better life. People tend to move to nicer, more hospitable climates, to areas with low crime, good paying jobs, abundant food, good education, etc. Muslims claim they have all these things in their pitiful, archaic countries, and yet they are migrating in the tens of millions to western countries.

So that leaves us with two options. Either Muslims truly hate their motherlands and are sick of the poverty, the war, the rapes, the killing, the lack of freedom imposed by their religion, the lack of education, etc and they want a better life, or they're coming here to subvert and then convert the country and turn our society into a mirror of their homelands...Islamic tyrannies.

I don't believe the first option is true in any way. They seem to revel in their barbarity and violence and backwards, almost prehistoric societies. It also makes no sense that someone who considers another society to be weak, sick, corrupt, evil, and the embodiment of Satan himself would move to such a decadent country in order to live and raise family. As I said before, that's akin to a Christian wanting to move to Hell in order to live and raise a family. Muslims also have no problem taking money from the Great Satan, as evidenced by the millions of dollars pouring into Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Palestinian Territories, etc. I guess according to Islam it's ok to cavort with Satan as long as he pays you something.

So that leaves us with option two, which is they're coming here in order to erode our society and out way of life and bring us down to their level. I think Islam should be labeled not as a religion, but as a violent, mass psychosis and therefore banned from being practiced, much like how the Scientologists are banned in Germany. Let the Muslims go live in Muslim lands and kill one another as they are wont to do and leave the rest of us to live in peace.
