Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]
in response to reader comment: Muslims cannot be integrated into European society

Sully I agree with your views in general. Nobody is saying that illegal immigration is a desirable thing but it is extremely foolish to lump the issues of illegal immigration and Islamic acts of terror perpetrated by legal residents of the UK , France, Netherlands and elsewhere. Legal immigration of Muslims is a more dangerous and serious issue than illegal immigation because illegal immigrants do not have the freedom to plot terrorist attacks.

Ultimately remember that most parts of the world were founded by illegal immigrants. Did the native Americans issue visas to the first Europeans who came to North America? Did the aborigines in Australia have any say in deciding who gets to come in to Australia? Is Spanish a native language of South America?

The pathetically xenophobic Octavios of the world do not have the time or inclination to ask these questions.
