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

"You and I are both in agreement when you imply that Muslims emigrate into the free world to acquire legal citizenship". That gentleman got really upset when I suggested that the problem MIGHT have something to do with illegal immigration. Yet, the Cartoon protests affect Europe, where there are a lot of people from the Middle East. Most Middle Easterns are decent, honest, peace-loving and hard-working. Most immigrants are good and decent people.

However, if you take a country like Denmark there are a lot of immigrants from the Middle East, both legal and illegal. Given that there are death-threats out against Denmark, it might be worth checking their immigration status. I like immigrants and I like Middle Eastern culture. Immigrants are very hard-working and Middle Eastern culture is great. But, now there are death-threats against European nations and, a lot of problems might be solved just through a simple check on the immigration status.
