Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems

Submitted by Ayasha (United States), Nov 26, 2008 at 21:41

Why is it that the Western world seem to bow and scrape before new Muslim citizens?

Some Muslim countries are just not safe, or else the poverty is so great people must go elsewhere. I can understand that. By all means, immigrate.

But the submission of the West to the Seventh Century customs of another culture I cannot understand.

Is it too much to ask that Muslims who do immigrate to the West simply fit in and not expect special favors?

Why is the West so reluctant to require this?

Could it be that we are afraid of something, and if so, what could it be?
