Yes - and now we are seeing the beginnings of the ascendancy of the tide of islamo-realism in Europe with several expulsions across many countries of the more malignant Islamists, the banning of the freedom sack and a more widespread appreciation of how islam is not just a 'religion' , the awareness of the rise of islamist parties in the faux liberations that have occurred in North African muslim countries, media coverage of the killings and persecution of non-muslims throughout the muslim world etc.

I think most people have no problems with 'moderate' muslims living in the West as long as they keep it in their pants and don't flout their archaic belief system with the expectation that other people should 'respect' and make special provisions for them.

"Good to know influential people who can help stem ignorance and hate"

Exactly - by stopping the spread of a 'religion' whose more devoted adherents promote exactly that and worse.
