I respect your point but we have different goals

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: No Sully, I did not miss your point

Submitted by Sully (United States), Mar 4, 2008 at 13:45

I want to discourage more Muslim immigration to our country and I want to encourage current resident alien Muslims to go back to their countries of origin. The best and easiest way I can personally help that cause is to make it more difficult for them to make a living here by not patronizing them.

You want to force them to assimilate, which may work with some or even most. But everytime you get in a cab with a Muslim driver you expose yourself to the small but discreet risk that today is the day he's going to go Jihad and cut your throat. Also, everytime you pay a fare to a Muslim driver you give him more resources to import relatives.

This is our country, and immigration to it is a privilege that we are not required to extend.
