Reader comment on item: Which Privileges for Islam?

Amazing! First these people leave their own country (where they can practice their religion as they wish)and come to western nations which are in general secular. Once their numbers grow they start agitating for following Sharia laws from which they had gotten away in the first place. They should know that they are supposed to follow the laws of the host country they are coming in and not try to impose their religious beliefs on others. If they love and miss those laws so much, they have a choice of going back.

Poor Western nations are clueless as to what's hitting their countries by the continuing immigration from Muslim countries. If you think it is bad now, just wait a few more years; we will find ourselves in the same situation as the European countries are in now. If no action is taken soon, it will be too late to do anything about it except being governed by Sharia laws.
