One cannot stop Islamists and Jihadist sympathisers individually

Reader comment on item: Trump's Muslim Immigration Policy Is Evolving for the Better

It's naive to imagine one can bring in millions of Muslims from the middle east/Afghanistan/Pakistan/Somalia and that the number of Jihadist sympathisers among them will be neglible.

You really must recognize this, Dr. Pipes.
The fact is that at least 20% of Muslims in the West strongly sympathise with suicide bombers who attack the West. And the experience of teachers in Brussels is that many, (and according to one eminently politically correct source - 90%) muslim high school pupils consider the brussels bombers to be heroes!!

Just as asking the female Jihadist attacker in San Bernadino as she came to America to sign a statement promising she doesn't intend to carry out a terrorist attack did no good, once it's understood by jihadist sympathisers (a term I'm surprised no Conservative politicians have adopted) to be necessary to lie, then lie they will.

Additionally, Dr. Pipes, you say one cannot judge by clothing. You surely do not mean that. Bringing in hundreds of thousands of families whose men have beards and whose women were veil certainly means extraordinary problems for the West.

Given that not everyone can come to the West, there is no human right to enter and live in the West, why choose such families over secular families?
People can lie when asked questions, you know. Jihadist sympathisers (and I would argue that goes well beyond the 20% polled in many Western countries who sympathise so strongly that they justify these attacks) hardly feel compelled to tell the truth to their detriment.

One has to stop mass immigration from Muslim countrie to the West.
Only few can be allowed to live in the West and these have to be very carefully handpicked, picked with tweezers, so to speak.
