Xenophobia? No! Importing Failed Cultures? No Insane? Yes!

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

It seems to me that there is a Muslim protest or riot every other day of the week. They protest against the terrible insults against their religion, the lack of social acceptance and the absence of fairness in the job markets. This oppression must indeed be terrible for them to keep emigrating to the Great Satan and Little Satans that make up The West.

Reacism and Xenophobia is deplorable. However, it is INSANE to import values and practises from failed cultures and religions. If the origin of these troublemakers were from a successful culture they would not flee their homelands in such multitudinous hordes!

They deplore our values, they criticise our society, they cause a disproportionate volume of crime and represent a greater burden to society in welfare provision that any other group on the planet. Any student of history will also remark that they are the least successful culture that the world has seen in the past couple of centuries. (The truly desperate will need to go back at least 6 centuries to find any noteworthy Muslim contributions to history)The only reason that they are able to even feed themselves is due to the oil wealth (that we gave them) and the aid that we pour into these regions (Norway gives more aid to Palestine than Saudi Arabia - so much for Muslim brotherhood).

Irrespective of any differing opinion of the above I have a simple question. If the West is so terrible, why are you here? We are tired of feeding and clothing you and receiving nothing back but ingratitude. Go home. Problem solved.

Furthermore, is there a single religion or belief system on the planet that the Muslim faith does not have a conflict with? I have no interest in violence or retribution against these thugs but I simply cannot understand why they are here. If I don't like a room and prefer another - I go to the room that I prefer. Our governments should pay for the one way tickets home - cheaper than than feeding and clothing them!!
