And where will he go next?

These are old 1992 figures by the by:

Muslim Population In The USA

Peruse down the page and take note of the number of Mosques and FULL TIME schools present in the U.S, even in 1992. Would you reasonably expect those numbers have decreased?

You have no special claim to immunity from that which the U.K. is enduring presently; your day is right around the next corner. Enjoy.

Europe is expediting their own death by allowing large numbers of 3rd world minorities into their respective countries. The fear of "offending" some group has paralyzed them, and the end result will be more and more 3rd worlders infecting western nations.

All borders need to be closed to immigration in all western nations for a very long time.

Well Western nations should have immigration between one another at least.

I'm planning on attending graduate school in the UK, and despite the downsides I love the country dearly.
The weather (yes I like it cold and damp), the history, the architecture....

The UK will work these problems out, hence the rise of parties like UKIP and the SNP in Scotland. Its their country and they will deal with these problems.

Nah, when it comes to this "PC crap," the US is really just in its infancy when compared to the UK. The UK (and some other EU countries as well) has moved beyond that which is reasonable by discriminating against their native populations and their own cultures by providing advantages to imported cultures and to immigrants and actively disadvantaging their native populations.

Think Affirmative Action on a much larger, much more pervasive scale: The underlying motive is good and perfectly understandable, but the implementation is anything but fair because it doesn't really equalize issues but simply disadvantages yet another group.

I remember a case out of Germany the other week where the owner of an apartment building had sued an immigrant renter for installing a satellite dish at the facade of the house without prior approval by the owner. The highest court decided that the immigrant had every right to install such a dish because it allowed him access to news (i.e., information) from his home country and in his native language. German law states that people cannot be precluded from accessing news and information simply based on their nationality. German citizens, however, are NOT allowed to install a satellite dish without prior approval because news and information is readily available without this device.

In other words, the law (as interpreted by Germany's legal system) states that immigrants are allowed to do something that Germans are not. So much for the idea that the law applies equally to everybody. Thus, what the German legal system has accomplished is to declare that you cannot be disadvantaged because of nationality - EXCEPT when you happen to be German. Got it, sounds great!

And that is just one more example of political correctness running amok in Europe.

Oh UK..unbelievable that it can be a crime to offend. Anything can be offensive to anybody. What a can of worms those types of laws are.

If this were in the United States the Shopowner could count on the ACLU, which so many of you conservatives hate, to defend his rights.

Free speech is not a right in the U.K. Shame.

The ACLU is more interested in protecting atheists' "rights" to remove the Holy Mother Mary and baby Jesus from holiday ornaments.
