Daniel Pipes' "solution" doesn't address any of the problems he mentions

Your solution is so out of place here. You mentioned the rape issue. Will banning "Islamists" do anything to keep Muslims from raping Danish girls? You mentioned the outlandish Muslim crime rate. Are those crimes being committed by "Islamists"? or by Muslims. You mentioned arranged marriages. Are these arranged only by "Islamists"? or by Muslims in general?

Finally, you mentioned the fear Danes have of being seen as "politically incorrect" if they speak against what the Muslims are doing -- but you are being the poster child for political correctness, by not addressing the problem head-on.

Roy is completely right on this matter.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Not every Muslim criminal is an Islamist, of course, but the Islamists provide the hostility that separates Muslims from the general population and provides cover for their ugly actions.

Muslim populations in the West exist; the goal has to be to integrate them; engaging in fantasies about banning or expelling them gets nowhere.
