How Europe and the Americas do the world a disservice with liberal immigration laws

Reader comment on item: Muslim Europe

Dr Pipes,

Reform is always based on a critical mass of discontent existing in a country. Our liberal immigration policies and concessions to refugees might be acting as a pressure valve taking releasing the push for reform in over populated and miserable Islamic slums. Migrants from these regions aren't particularly happy with where they are and prefer our countries though they obviously hate us westerners. Leaving them in their homelands or deporting them to back to their homelands might assist in reaching the aforementioned critical mass that might lead to modernisation (though the fruits of this phenomenon have been so poor for the west I'm not sure I would wish it on even the muslims). Instead they become a revolutionary class in our own countries which is probably what the left wing dissatisfied with the fat and happy western proleteriat want. More angry people means they have another stab at introducing socialism, or better yet even communism, though I think if enough Muslims reach the west it will be Islamism that will be holding the pocket aces.

Cordially,

Reuben Horne.
