Dear Havas,

Again, you are using the same argument that your delusional correligionary. "You let us in so you must put up with our law breaking way of life".

Again, we strongly believe that all human beings are created equal and that no one can be discriminated on the basis of his religion. Which does NOT mean that members of a certain religion (guess wich one) that repeatedly behave like beasts and not humans will not be punished to the full extent of the law.

Anyone from Turkey or any other muslim country can come to libe in Europe and try to make a life for himself and his family FOR AS LONG AS he respects the law. Is it that difficult to understand?

I love the argument "you want us to stop being what we are" WHAT? what is is exactly that you are? pedophiles marrying under age girls? wife beaters? rapists? violent thugs that would beat up women or gays? well if that is what your religion makes of you guys, yeah I gues we do want you to stop doing all those things. Sorry we may sound fastidious to you. Still, I would like to think that there are members of your religion that actually respect Human Rights, people that can come here and live in peace respecting his neighbours and the law of the country that is accepting them. Maybe I am being too optimistic.

You want to build a Middle Eastern democracy? Hey, nothing would make us happier, however, have you thought about the implications of it? in a democracy you would have to accept Freedom of Cult, freedom of speach, women's rights, gay's rights and all those unislamic things. That is you would have to become, ehem, how can I put it? like the West?

The main problem is that still you guys are missing the point. You want to build a properous and democratic future for your land? Well, the firs step is to start taking responsibility for your actions, living on western welfare while you cry like wimps about how events that happened 2 generations ago are "oppressing " you well, that is so No the way to go.
