Dear Dr Pipes:

Not just Europe, even India, in theory, would be inclined to welcome the Ukrainian refugees over any ME refugees, if the situation arises. India is too far from Ukraine, too poor, and too different for any Ukrainian to immigrate to but I think Ukrainian refugees will be less threatening to a country like India than the ME refugees.

Here are some reasons that apply to the Ukrainians that do not apply to our ME friends: 1. With the Ukrainians India might get some good scientists, software developers, and mathematicians. Good luck re that with our ME friends. 2. If the Ukrainians come with any Kalashnikovs, they will only be targeted at Putin and his army and not at the rest of the humanity. Good luck re that with our ME friends. 3. The Ukrainians will not try to make every other person a Ukrainian. Good luck... 4. No hijab, Burkha, on-road prayer issues with the Ukrainians. Good luck... 5. Ukrainians may be spiritual and religious but they will not carry their religion on their sleeves. Good luck... 6. The Ukrainians will not demand any special accommodation in the work place for their special needs. Good luck... 7. The Ukrainians will not rush to make special ties with any subgroups of Indians and unite against every one else. Good luck... 8. No Sharia, polygamy and such issues with the Ukrainians. Good luck... 9. It is unlikely that the Ukrainians will try to divide India and create a Ukrainistan in India for their exclusive use. Good luck... 10. The liberal media will probably not habitually write biased articles supporting the Ukrainian refugees. Good luck... . 11. No Ukrainian prayers at godforesaken hours. Gooduck...

The list can go on and on. Actually, India got some unwanted visitors from Myanmar (Muslim Rohingya) and they have already shown many signs of unwanted behaviors (Ref1).

Muslims need to contemplate, meditate and look inward. Unfortunately, they are so busy blaming others that they have no time to reflect. And, the Muslim's religion is so self righteous that they have no need to reflect.
