Octavio:
I read several postings responding to your question on this forum . Here is one that will lift your heart.. The Dutch have started your rescue mission. Read the article below.:

The End of Tolerance
Farewell, multiculturalism. A cartoon backlash is pushing Europe to insist upon its values.
By Stefan Theil
Newsweek International……………………….. March 6, 2006 issue
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After all the muslim outrages suffered by Europe recently, Dutch have shut their borders and there is very little immigration. Rotterdam just got a code of conduct. I will list a few:
………Dutch being spoken publicly is required
………Ban wearing a burga in public
……..A prominent Dutch establishment figure described a new Dutch way with immigrants. A high court Judge in the Hague says" . "We demand a new social contract. We no longer accept that people don't learn our language, we require that they send their daughters to school, and we demand they stop bringing in young brides from the desert and locking them up in third-floor apartments."

Look what they are saying in France: " The French way of integration no longer works."
A new "contract of welcome and integration" stipulates learning French and looking for a job in return for 10-year residence permits and discrimination protections. Immigrants failing to respect basic Western values face deportation. "In the case of a woman kept hostage in her home without learning French, the whole family will be obliged to leave," Sarkozy said, referring to a practice among Europe's most conservative Muslims of importing teenage brides.

I am sure other European countries will soon follow suit.
