Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: To Octavio

What you have to understand is that Europe has a big problem with mass immigration. Millions of people come in, and we don't have jobs or health care for everyone. Third Wolrd immigration and Muslim immigration add further problems. If David Duke is against mass immigration, then I cannot say I disagree with him. Of course, he was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and probably did harm to dark-skinned people, so I disagree about that. As far as I know, the Ku Klux Klan is a terrorist organization, and I am not happy to be associated with their Grand Dragon, someone who probably took part in the lynching of non-whites.

Having said that, mass immigration IS a problem for Europe. You don't need to be the Ku Klux Klan to understand that the current numbers of immigration are far too high. If David Duke agrees with that, there is nothing I can do about it. I am sure that nations like Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia have got strict immigration policies. China and India, certainly do. I am not saying that ALL immigration should be stopped. I am saying that we need a more regulated immigration policy. Do you still think I am like the Ku Klux Klan?
