What makes me curious is our immigration officials. We had only a fraction of a percent of muslims in Minnesota in 1995, the year I left to go to Europe, and then came back years later to find muslims EVERY WHERE. Where did they come from and why the huge numbers? The Economist magazine did a piece very recently on the building of a new mosque that will dot the Minneapolis skyline. They stated several numbers on the growth of our islamic population from 40.000 to 150.000 Somalian people, they were not quite certain, but those are large numbers none-the-less. The overall population of muslims is ofcourse larger and growing.

It goes back to our western society, it can no longer discriminate in a healthy manner. What are we to do. Do we just let anyone in and hope for the best. Minneapolis today has become a post-nordic city. Many uneducated and under achieving blacks have moved here in these past 20 or so years and have honored our city the title of 'Muderapolis', but the US has never been serious about crime, the lot of hispanics to the Twin Cities did not come legaly, this I can promice you, but when we have an ultra-liberal mayor who does NOT want to give a police man the right to ask some one if they are here legaly (why I can't fathom) I see very little hope for a city that supports him.

I really feel that Minnesota has lost it's soul in many ways and is becoming glabalized in a way that has killed its identity. So, forget about some big Viking that will come to protect you, THAT culture is being petered out and a new one is being forged. In insidious ways too, white girls hooking up with gangbangers with no future, so who can withstand the rise of Shar'ia law?
