Past behavior is a reliable predictor of future conduct

Reader comment on item: Faces of American Islam[: Muslim Immigrants]

Submitted by A. Westin (United States), Aug 17, 2002 at 19:18

If Americans are interested in learning how increased numbers of Muslim immigrants to America might behave in the future, they need look no further than Kosovo, where Tito encouraged Muslims to settle in the provincial seat of Eastern Orthodox Christianity and Muslims desecrated the Cathedral and then demanded separation.

Or they could look to Chechnya where Muslims funded by Iranians kidnap Russians and dismember them, sending body parts to families, along with demands for money.

Or we could look at Muslim behavior in the Philippines.

Or France. Muslim immigrants to France were so filled with gratitude for the escape from the tyranny of their own totalitarian states, that they repaid the French by bombing the Paris Subway -- and not just once. Muslims in France are responsible for the desecration of Synagogues.

Muslims in Afghanistan destroyed the irreplaceable Buddha -- an historical treasure that predated the establishment of Islam.

Muslims in Iraq regularly loot priceless and irreplaceable Mesopotamian artifacts to sell them on the Black Market.

Muslims can be called many things -- but tolerant and multicultural aren't among them. If Americans are wise, they will strongly discourage Muslim immigration.
