I don't know what to say to Harrak

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn
in response to reader comment: My experience with the uneducated immigrants Europe suffer from

Submitted by Octavio (Italy), Dec 3, 2006 at 16:55

If I was a North-African, I would want to move into Europe in order to improve my standard of living. In Italy, illegal immigration was not even a crime, until 2001. That is why hundreds of thousands of people from North-Africa, and especially Morocco, moved into Italy. Spain is similar to Italy. And France seems to have the biggest problems with North-Africans. The French are really having a tough time with North-African Muslims.

Now, as a matter of fact North-African Muslims are quite different from Europeans. The difference does not affect Moroccan engineers or qualified workers. It affects the average North-African Muslim. Now, there are a lot of North-Africans who have done a lot for France and Southern-Europe. However, we cannot be an employment centre for North-Africa. It is time for us to help the North-Africans in their own country. Also, we love Morocco, but we don't want to be Morocco. People come to our countries, because they want to find something different.
