"Can you cite one speck of hard evidence of the benefits of "diversity" that we have heard gushed about for years? Evidence of its harm can be seen — written in blood — from Iraq to India, from Serbia to Sudan, from Fiji to the Philippines. It is scary how easily so many people can be brainwashed by sheer repetition of a word."
— Thomas Sowell

It is scary and the adherents can't even tell you what it means.

Muslims don't belong in Europe and they don't belong in America either. There is no such thing as a "radical Muslim" they are all just Muslims.

I don't want them here. They have no business being here.


If this is hate or intolerance why don't you attend a nice Protestant or Catholic Church in say Saudi Arabia? Maybe take some Bibles and see who you can convert?

Most muslims in europe are perfectly integrated into European societies. It's awesome because muslims are usually very polite and super-friendly
I like the integration pictures that Oz posted. Their Molotov cocktails are integrating nicely with riot police and flipped cars.

BTW, the chancellor agrees with him.

From the article:

Germany is home to Western Europe's second-biggest Islamic population after France. The single biggest minority is Turkish. In contrast to the situation in Britain or France, where simmering racial tensions sometimes explode into violence, German Muslims live relatively peacefully alongside mainstream society, but a lack of integration has long posed a problem.

I live in Germany. I have muslim coworkers. Most of the turks have been here since the 1960s. Every germany city has Döner shops where german go to eat. Most german kids have turkish friends in school.
I can only assume that the americans that are afraid of muslims are the one that have never even spoken to many muslims/ or worked with muslims.

...and here we begin with "I live there and don't see a problem" anecdotes.

According to that logic I know more about the USA than all the CD users that live in the USA because all you have got are "anecdotes".

Bush may be proud of me, but I sure as h*ll ain't proud of him.

But, the "neo-con" accusation considering my Ron Paul-ish libertarian leanings is all I need to know about your credibility. Good show! Can you provide more unverifiable anecdotal evidence on German/muslim integration to entertain us? Ooooo, but if you don't feel like making up some more stories, can we go back to the Nazi strawman the others gave up on?

Speaking to German weekly Bild am Sonntag, Angela Merkel said it would be wrong to play down statistics that show religious Muslim youths in Germany to be more prone to violence than the rest of the population.

"This is a big problem and we can talk about it openly, without arousing suspicions of xenophobia," Merkel said in the interview published on Sunday, September 5.

Seems Merkel thinks there is a problem,although she then of course rules out their religion having anything to do with it...

From way back in 2006.

A top German politician and close ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday Islam was one of the main factors in religiously motivated violence, and urged Germany’s Muslims to reject all forms of brutality. Ronald Pofalla, general-secretary of Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats (CDU), also said many Muslims would find it painful that their religion was being abused for violent ends.
“Certainly it is painful for many Muslims that their religion is misused for violence,” Pofalla wrote in a guest column for Sunday’s Bild am Sonntag newspaper.
“But … the problem of religiously motivated violence is today almost exclusively a problem of Islam. In addition, many of the victims are Muslims themselves,” he said, according to extracts released in advance on Saturday.

But Merkel is not an American on C/D who claims to have lived there for decades.

Oh wait...
