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

Submitted by John Anonymous Smith (United States), Mar 1, 2006 at 02:09

Illegal immigrants did not blow up the trains in Madrid, muslims of Moroccan origin did. There are so many European muslims holding European passports ready to blow themselves up that it is a joke to blame illegal immigration for everything. Either you do not understand what illegal immigration means or cannot comprehend the fact that the greatest threat comes from LEGAL European muslims who can travel freely to other developed countries. The man who butchered Van Gogh in cold blood was a LEGAL citizen of Holland and not some shadowy illegal Mexican immigrant who crossed the southern US border. Unfortunately there are enough xenophobes like you who would rather use this as an excuse to go after Mexican immigrants or ban Sikhs and Jews from wearing their religious headgear in France than solving the actual problem.
