Yes George, I fully agree with you.

But why are you asking the Muslims to go back to the 'Middle Eastern countries from where their forefathers came from for better prospects'? then I will also ask YOU and people like you to leave US and go back to the European countries from where your ancestors came long time ago for the same reason- in search of better prospects. Have you forgotten what you've done to the aborigin native-Indians (who are actually the sons of the soil- and NOT YOU !)? You said the Muslims 'cannot have the cake and also eat the cake'. Hold on, my friend, haven't you taken over the lands from the native Americans? Did you follow their culture and way of life, or you changed their land into another Europe? If you 'have never come across people who take the advantage of a country' and then criticise the original inhabitants of that land then stand in front of the mirror.

You said that the Muslims in the Middle East 'laugh and dance on the fall of western countries but on the other hand go in front of the US embassy to apply for migration VISA'. You are 100% correct, my friend, but remember, (or ask your great grandpa' if he's alive) your forefathers also laughed at the cultures and ways of life of the Native Americans (whom you named as Red Indians) back in Europe but still they sailed for their land- the land of opportunities- and settled there for a better life. The Muslims are doing just the same!

Dear George and his followers (colour-less Americans, since you have named others as black, brown, yellow and red!) - you also stay or leave USA. If you don't like your neighbors- red/black/brown/yellow/ or of any other colour- you are free to go back to Europe.

No one is forcing you, my friend!
