Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]
in response to reader comment: GOOD EXCUSE

Sir, you are off-topic. The Cartoon Protests have got more to do with Europe than with the USA. Therefore the issue is illegal immigration in Europe. And that is mainly from the Middle East. Of course, I am not against all illegal immigrants. But, Europe has allowed in illegal immigrants from the Middle East. Most of them are decent people, some aren't.

What does illegal immigration have got to do with the topic? Quite a lot, because the Cartoons were published in Denmark which has got a huge population from the Middle East. What about illegal immigration in the USA? Mohammed Atta's VISA had expired on 9/11. You cannot deny that there is some link between illegal immigration and the issue we are discussing.

However, I am not anti-immigration and I know that most immigrants are honest and hard-working. I am not even against people from the Middle-East, because I know that the Middle East has got a fantastic culture, and a great history. I was just suggesting that western nations should watch their borders a bit better.
