To JO M: focus on the home-front

Reader comment on item: Decision Time on Iran
in response to reader comment: Wake Up

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Nov 9, 2006 at 09:24

Dear JO M,

let me clarify my position. I have read Daniel Pipes's case against Iran, and he really convinced me. The point I am making is another. Britain, America's staunchest ally, is also the weakest nation, when it comes to stopping Islamification. What is the point of attacking Iraq, if Muslims are allowed to operate freely in London? I agree with most of what the Americans do. What I am trying to tell you is that us Europeans have got other priorities. Let me list these priorities to you:

1) Ban the Muslim veil in all European countries. Belgium, Italy, Spain should all follow the French example.

2) Stop Muslim immigration

3) Say "no" to Turkey in the European Union

4) Ban Islamic schools, and don't give them the green light, as in Milan, Italy.

These are the key points for Europeans like you and me. Of course, if you have to choose between the Americans and the Iranians, choose the Americans. If you have to choose between the Israelis and the Palestinians, choose the Israelis. But, if you are not compelled to make a decision, leave Muslim countries alone and focus on the home-front. If you can ban the Muslim veil in Belgium, you have already achieved a terrific victory. I we can stop the immigration from Muslim north Africa into Italy, then half of the problems will be over. If we stop Turkey from gaining access to the European Union, we have already saved the continent-. By contrast, I don't care about bringing democracy to Morocco or Somalia. Let them decide for themselves.
