Wow. I'm guessing they move here because they don't like what has been created where they came from.

Not all Muslims are bad people, far from it.

I've already listened to her "Roots of Liberty" lecture on the origins of our Constitution. Did you really think I hadn't? I've also taken Hillsdale College's Constitution courses, Constitution 101, and Constitution 201, as well as some other Hillsdale College courses.

I couldn't care less what "Wikipedia" says about common law. They aren't infallible, and they are very liberal. They are just plain wrong. Wikipedia's primary benefactor is George Soros. He is also the primary benefactor of the Southern Poverty Law Center, so it's no surprise that Wiki cites SPLC in many of their articles, especially those that label Organizations like the Family Research Counsel, "hate groups."

Soros also funds The Center for American Progress, whose blog is "Think Progress."

Perhaps it's because you rely so heavily on Wikipedia that you are so uninformed?

How would you feel if you were Christian and someone made you swear on a Koran?

See how that works?
Christians are not even allowed to hold an office or to even pray in many Muslim countries

They strategically put them where it's whitest and the most welfare for them.

Well, it's called "chain migration" - people come to where their families are. I don't think you need a lot of imagination to see why. What got the ball rolling were US lottery systems that relocated refugees to certain cities - Somalis got Minneapolis. I'm sure Somalis don't appreciate the weather in Minneapolis and move as soon as they're stable economically (and can move). I met a lot of Somalis in San Diego, so they're not just in Minneapolis.

As for Somalia being a hot desert, you forget that Somalia has the longest coastline in Africa. The city of Mogadishu was originally chosen by the Persians because it was considered to have nice weather (yes it's warm but breezy, kind of like Hawaii). Yes, once you get away from the coastline it becomes semi-arid to a desert.

I also want to say that Somalia's problems are not because it's Muslim but due to clan based attempts at controlling power. Basically, all attempts at forming a central government have been failing due to clans wanting dominance. In Somaliand, equally Muslim but less clan diversity, it's fairly peaceful.

This may be the first time I've heard anyone characterize the Enlightenment as some kind of purely continental thing centered in France.

And that's not the dumbest post in this thread either.

Most of their problems are due to inbreeding and the stunted intellectual development and mental disorders that has caused. The inbreeding is due to their Muslim beliefs, and exacerbated by their tribal/clan social organization.
In the US Somalis have an autism rate that is 5x our national average. Why's that, you think?
