I don't disagree with anything you said. I am not sure you disagree with anything I said either. We both agree that the West must stand up to militant Islam. Yet we both agree that many elements in the West are indeed giving in. This must be stopped. We should expect our Muslim immigrants to accept our values and give their loyalty to this country.

If they are unwilling to do that or they think they are going to establish Islam as the state religion in the West, then they should not be in our countries. I don't want to paint all Muslims with that brush, but I do think the burden is on them to show us that there is a place for them in our societies. We must never change our values, traditions, freedom and culture to accommodate immigrants. It is they who must adapt to us not the other way around.

I hope that clarifies what I said earlier.
