Great argument

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam
in response to reader comment: Who started aggression?

Submitted by Inshallah (Spain), Dec 13, 2009 at 06:28

I love the argument: You let us in so you MUST (notice the choice of word) accept that we break the law, live on your tax money, rape your women, and a long etc. Sorry, it does not work that way. It is more like, we are letting you into OUR home. If you behave yourselves and accept our norms, (our norms being those pesky and annoying Human Rights, gender equality, Rule of Law, Freedom of Speech, you know the drill) we will let you stay, otherwise you will see yourselves increasingly controlled and eventually OUT. It should be easy, you behave like civilized people and stop threatening us with suicide bombers and the like and we MAY allow you eventually to build minarets in OUR land. Once you have PROVEN to us that you finally got civilized. What part of OUR land you have a problem understanding?
