Looking at the nations of Europe, it doesn't appear so.  Yet in the US, we've not experienced what is happening in the EU.  

For the last 50 years or so, the European nations have had an 'open arms' approach to immigration mostly, I speculate, because their welfare programs are so burdensome that they had no other choice.

Working people were overwhelmed by those 'on the dole'.  Unfortunately, unlike in America, the new citizens didn't turn out to be industrious but instead went 'on the dole' themselves.  Germany, for example, experienced this: "in the early 1970s, 2 million of the 3 million foreigners in Germany were in the labor force; by the turn of this century, 2 million of 7.5 million were."

http://www.wsj.com/articles/europe-immigration-and-islam-europes-crisis-of-faith-1421450060

Some have speculated the clashes between islam and western people don't start occurring until the percentages reach a certain ratio... in other words, the numbers of adherents become sufficient to be a viable force within a nation.

Is there anything about islam that isn't anathema to western society, values and ethics?  All I know of the religion is just what I see;  women abused, homosexuals murdered, stupid rituals and a penchant toward authoritarianism.  Is there anything redeeming about this cult?

The difference between here and Europe is that Muslim people actually come here to become Americans. So the ability to assimilate. People don't go to France to become French.

ROTFLMAO!!!! You have got to be kidding! Are you really serious? Have you not been reading the news, listening to radio and news reports? If they want to be Americans so bad then why is it they have to have foot washers in schools, or demanding that we have certain foods for them on food stamps. I could go on, but there is no way most of them come here to be Americans. They come here to undercut our way of life, and I might say, done a fine job of doing just that, along with the help of their leader, Obama.

I visited Crete, took a Mediteranian cruise,  land and cruise tours of Ireland, France, and England, and while I was delighted and privileged to be there......at some point the way they dress, more formal and dark colors like what we see at a funeral caused me to think that they were still in mourning from so many wars over the centuries and two world wars in the last century...why wouldn't they dress darkly.

Our streets are full of color, theirs fill with color only when American tourists ignore the cautions about attire.....that may be an over generalization, and yet, they pretty much know the Americans, not just because of our white walking/running shoes.  They can laugh, make fun of us,  but who has the comfortable feet?

The same could be said about the illegals that come to this country GQ. English no longer the official language in schools. The menu at my grandsons  school that now includes tortillas. Blame Obama if you want but, hell this has been going on for a very long time.

Now can you honestly tell me the Muslim situation in this country isn't different then Europe? Be honest!

 Yes, for a tme, but then Islam reaches the critical number of hearts and minds it needs to oppress and you have no debate, just become a Muslim, or die.  India, Egypt, etc.  Power of the minority is ruthless with its opposition, causing the majority to quake instead of fight.....a timeless error of humans.  People rule, but realize their potential, their numbers?  Not always.......so little keeps them satisfied with life as the state dictates it.

 Knowledge IS power.  We all agree, don't we?   So, as we examine the denial of education funding following the reluctant departure of the Russians in Afghanistan and the willingness of Taliban  to fill that funding gap to a population, half of which was under the age of 17 at the time....., who do we credit with foresight, or the lack of it?

 Instead of calling public education brainwashing and dismissing the need for it to all but the few who can afford it, perhaps indoctrination into the better natures of the state is essential if you want better natures to prevail in a civilized world.   Greeks looked hard and long for the ideal governing entity and came up with what we call the west, essentially.  Bless their less than arrogant hearts....

Not really.  The fertility rate in western nations is essentially zero while muslim immigrants don't appear to be following the trend previous immigrant groups followed... at least in Europe.

Here in the states, I don't know.  I'm seeing women in muslim headgear more than I remember from the past and Anchorage now has a couple of 'halal' grocery stores.  Are muslims in the US outbreeding us or have some of them merely moved to Alaska from down south?

I really have no problem with religion provided folks keep it to themselves.  I won't require anyone to believe in the flying spaghetti monster if you all don't require me to believe in your sky god. 

That said, human rights are given to us by the flying spaghetti monster, or our by our mothers, so anyone forcibly depriving anyone else of their human rights is gonna get on my bad side real quick.

We have had halal and kosher stores as long as I can remember. The population of Muslims has increased I imagine for every state, looking at Alaska your demographics are 1% of the population, far less than the average 5-6% in other states, your just not used to it. Headgear does not bother me, the whole "outfit" does. Look at some of the Jewish men in Israel, hair and headgear that looks like a mini turbine ready to take off. Religious beliefs do not bother me either "as long as they keep it to themselves." I happen to believe in God and Jesus as the savior and I still say leave me alone!

 I used to tell Mormons at the door that I was Catholic and they would gracefully go away.  In recent years, they have launched into a challenge of that, so I thank them and say I'm not interested.  Few go on after that, but the ones that do get my I respect your faith and expect you to have the same of respect for mine, and I close the door, or walk away.

There is a pretty profound difference between a standing war and a religious war.  The best thing that we could do regarding the Middle East is to leave them the hell alone. No more foreign aid, and no more meddling.  I wouldn't buy anything from them anymore either.

So true, then add, tribal ways/wars, power, land, money. I tend to agree with you, what we have done, it's not working. Take Pakistan(please) we give them tons of money/arms, as a country united that money must also go to terrorist state Waziristan which is where we are droning.

 ya'll will think I'm nuts;  but I think it's an education problem.  In the middle eastern countries the only education most get is 70% Quran and Islamic studies-----   everything they are taught is basically slanted by their religion.  Saddam and the Shah both tried to change that---  and look how well that turned out.  The muslims here that assimilate well are professionals, who got their education somewhere besides the ME. You folks on this board keep telling me that it's a losing proposition to try to defeat a religion--  well unless you want to start praying to Mecca five times a day or have your head sawed off, we had better find a way.  We have to find some way to de-indoctrinate the next generation or given their reproduction rate and ours--  we're finished.

Dubai “princess” Sheikah Latifa Mohammed Al Maktoum has reportedly gone missing off the coast of Goa, India, after posting a chilling YouTube video in which she says that “this could be my last.”

Latifa, 33, who is said to have vanished alongside American Herve Jaubert, instructed her US-based lawyer to circulate the video in the event of her death or disappearance.

The bare-faced Latifa, who speaks directly to the camera, can be seen wearing a simple blue top with her hair tied back.

Giving a harrowing account of her life as a member of Dubai’s royal family, she says: “I am making this video because this could be the last video I make.”

“Pretty soon I’m going to be leaving somehow I’m not sure of the outcome, but I’m 99 percent positive this could work.”

Latifa reportedly sent her last WhatsApp message to her UK-based representative, Radha Stirling, on Sunday, March 4, from a US-registered boat at least 50 miles from India’s coastline, NDTV reported.

She told Stirling: “Radha, please help me, there are men outside,” before claiming to hear gunshots.

Stirling asked Latifa to record the gunshots, but she did not reply.

well, there are those american bases in germany and japan. was this a trick question?
Sadam had psycho groups like IS under control in iraq until bush conquered iraq. tukey has been using IS to topple Assad and fight the Kurds. the usa has been using IS and the kurds to topple Assad. IS is like mercs for hire.

so what, why care about all the fighting that goes on on the other side of the world! humans have been killing each other for fun and profit since forever.

It appears, near as I can tell, that several nations in the EU have had enough and are closing their borders to migrants.  They are Hungary, Poland, Austria, Czech, Italy, maybe the UK and it looks today like Sweden, may join them.


Sweden just had an election and it looks like the Swedish Democrats are doing well but the media wonks and government folks openly hate them so much that information getting out as of this moment is dodgy as fuck.

Swedish election: Nationalists 'make gains' in early exit polls


Sweden's nationalist anti-immigration party has made gains in the country's general election as the establishment parties appear deadlocked, exit polls predict.

The Sweden Democrats (SD) are expected to achieve 19.2% of the vote.


The party, described by Prime Minister Stefan Lofven as "racist", held 12.9% of the ballot in the previous election.


Neither the governing Social Democrats nor the centre-right bloc of parties are predicted to win a majority.

Not talking to nearly 20% of your eligable voters may not be a very good idea.

Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken
