I came from Italy 50 years ago. In school, I studied with children from different countries/religion/culture. In the beginning it was difficult learning the language but I persevered. Back then, one had to accommodate to the environment and not the other way around. I had to adjust to my new country and that suited me fine because I was happy to be in America and in due time, I learned to assimilate.

Muslims not only do not wish to assimilate but then demand the country where they live to be politically correct towards them. For example, the muslim in Italy who objected to the presence of a crucifix in his child's school. Obviously, the muslim who left his country to go to America or Europe must not have been happy with conditions in his own country...then pray tell why can't muslims simply assimilate to their adopted country?
