Your words: "Oh, this is the situation in the USA?!! Then the Muslims MUST go there to 'liberate' the Americans. Special Muslim 'spiritual churches' will also be required to treat the mentally disturbed ones."

Sarah, that would be fine if you came to do some good in our country. We welcome that. If you want to help the mentally disturbed that would be great! Countries and different ethnicities can bring a lot of good to a region. It's when there becomes an overwhelming problem with a group that we should all be concerned. All over the news today, there are Mexican protestors nationwide. They are upset that our politicians are cracking down on the illegal immigration problems from Mexico. The protests are huge, composed of both legal and illegal immigrants. They are going to have a day where none of them show up to work on May 1st, and they won't buy anything on that day and encourage stores to shut down. They are actually the largest minority in our country now. I have a problem with that. Not with their right to free speech, but with what they are saying. It really looks very ungrateful to me. They are trying to show how important they have become in our society, how much we depend on them, and how much power they have. Yes, they are hard workers and bring a lot to this country. It's just plain irritating when you welcome people to become a legal citizen and then they make you regret it. As many have said on this board, power corrupts.

I don't live in Denmark, so I am unclear on what the situation is there. I have read the article here on this website, and you say it's one way and someone else says it's another. But I believe this could be similar to what some from Denmark are feeling.
