Why do we welcome our enemies to live among us?

The descendents of the British and European Caucasian people, of which I'm one, must be the dumbest people on the face of this earth. We welcome Muslims into our nations, provide welfare, health care, jobs if they want them, respect, education and whatever their hearts desire or seek. In return, they hate us, refer to us as dhimmis, demand sharia law, distain becoming loyal to our nations, plot and plan to destroy, vandalize, terrorize and kill the very people who invited them into their country. Not only that, but then they deny any responsibility and insist that the Jews did it. Are we ready to acknowledge that we have invited scorpions into our midst? Of course not. We are not even ready to identify our tormentors and killers, but refer to them as "terrorists". And when we are forced to take precautions to prevent terrorism, do we specifically target our identified enemies? Heaven forbid. Instead we search little old ladies before they board a plane and allow some scorpions to board unmolested. Here is what I personally saw. I saw a Muslim man carrying a laptop computer, with his Caucasian wife and child boarding a plane. The man was allowed to board the plane without being searched. Not so his wife and child, they were pulled aside and diligently searched. Isn't there something wrong with this picture? We seem to understand that certain wild beasts can't be trusted. We do not allow bears, lions, tigers and wolves to wonder freely among our society because we know they are dangerous. Yet we don't seem to have a problem letting humans who are far more dangerous have complete freedom among us. Can you imagine the billions of dollars that we now need to spend on security? Who really believes that our enemies are worth it; I certainly do not and I have a deep suspicion that most of our citizens don't, it just doesn't seem to matter. When will we awaken to our immediate threat? Perhaps when a hundred thousand innocents are killed and maybe not even then. Of course we can avoid all this evil by simply converting to Islam. Unfortunately, even that will not end the problem because surely the most important and last conflict will be between the Shi'ites, the Sunnis and the Wahhabis. When will this terror ever end, or better yet, when will we end it?
