Reader comment on item: The Rushdie Rules, 25 Years Later

Submitted by macdaddy (United States), Nov 9, 2014 at 14:18

I lean towards Mr. Wilders view on this. If Islam can be changed to a moderate form that can co-exsit with the beliefs of the rest of the World - GREAT! But let them have their reformation, if they have the strength/courage/logic to ever have it, in their countries of origin. They are mostly not compatible with the Western world AND are a force towards the weakening of civilized Western norms, and until this changes, I would not allow immigration other than for one-off circumstances from those for which we truly have no concern. Let the ugliness that emanates from their culture/religion be transformed, if at all, from their own nests. We should help them "see the light" and hope, but accepting them or even acquiescing to the way they are only helps to sustain them.
