Maggie, re the baby factory remark, if you look at the present demographics of the birth rates among the native populations of the western nations it's about 1.2 births per couple. But for the Muslims who have migrated to these countries its about 4.8 births per couple, there by having a population explosion of Muslims in France, UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, USA, Australia, the Scandinavian countries and so forth.

This increase is attributed to the free health care and other benefits that these immigrants receive in the west. Also able bodied Muslims in Muslim garb are not hired by many companies so they get on the benefit wagon for housing, unemployment, child care and whatever freebies that are available in the west.

The reference to unmarried mothers in the west is no big deal, this is an insignificant minority when compared to the total population, the Muslims try to make a moral judgment on this one. We don't stone them to death or hang them as in Iran, these unmarried mothers are treated as any mother and they get the best benefits as far as medical, housing, food etc. We live in enlightened world, not in the dark ages, where the Muslims come from, many children live way below the poverty line, living in hovels not fit for human habitation also small children are put out for child labor all over in Muslim world.

What I find difficult to understand is why the Muslims come over to the Christian west if their Islamic countries are so wonderful. I have never seen anyone trying to creep into a Muslim country, but there are hordes of Muslims who try every method available to creep into the west.

We are being attacked, infiltrated, undermined, demoralized, and betrayed by a 1400 year old ...ideology of victimhood, revenge, hatred, and hegemony -- Many an empire have fallen to this horrible inhumane ideology in the past. and never recovered from the onslaught -- Byzantium -Coptic Egypt -- Christian Assyria, Jewish/Christian Babylon, Christian Levant, Zoroastrian Persia, Hindu India -- Great Empires ALL -- utterly crushed and annihilated ...
