Muslim migration into Europe

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims

Submitted by Alvin Samuels (United States), Dec 17, 2015 at 16:47

Agreed, there was a period when "The World Lit By Fire" during the Middle Ages experienced the worst that Christianity ever offered. Then the Jews found shelter in the Muslim world but at a price and position. We were treated as less than equal. But Cyrus allowed the Jews to return to Israel.

The Brits and "Lawrence" made things worse by destroying ancient Arab and feudal groupings with the "Skytes/Picot" agreement. This artificially created, ungovernable, separate states which ignored the tribal areas and mingled Shiites,Sunnis, Wahabies,Kurds, etc, contributing to" Arab Conflict Proneness" as described by Raphael Patai in his seminal book, "The Arab Mind".

Sending refugees from these areas to the West and not to the UAE, Yeman and Saudi Arabia will make matters worse. None should be allowed refuge in the USA. Not even those who are Muslim only rather than Islamists who you suggest might be less toxic.

Their collective collusion with the Nazis prove they are not friends of the Jews and their collective conflict with each other proves they are not sufficiently civilized to live in concert with others.

Your readers should remember that when Hitler offered to release "The Jews" fewer than 500 made it out. America and Britian lead the fight to prohibit Jews succor in either country. Milllions could have been saved!
