Reader comment on item: American Border Secrets

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), May 1, 2005 at 17:13

Dear Mr. Suriv,

I am writing from Europe where the problem of illegal immigration is much more marked than in the United States of America.

I am sure that 99.99% of Muslims are very decent and hard-working people. In Europe, there are 15 million Muslims and I love them. They are hard-working, they value family and community. I cannot say anything bad about them.

It is also true that there is a percentage of the Muslim population who despises the West and Israel.

As soon as Turkey joins the European Union in 2015, there will be more Muslims than Protestants in Europe.

How can we distinguish the good Muslims from the bad ones?

As far as the United States of America are concerned, there is no point in bombing Afganistan and Iraq, if you cannot even defend your own border with Mexico.

From the Mexican border, radical Islmists could take nuclear weapons into the United States.

Either you stop illegal immigration, or 9/11 will repeat itself over and over again.

But then, Madrid will repeat itself.

It is not about Muslims: I love Muslims and Islam is a beautiful religion.

It is about stopping illegal immigration.
