I used to live in Sheffield. If that is any indication, no thanks
I don't think I will ever set foot on the British Isles again, the few nice places (e.g. Bournemouth) I can't afford to live in anyway. And just going somewhere as a tourist is not my way. I'll head further south instead

I lived here all my life, over 70% of the prisoners in the Netherlands is Arab/North African, I have seen in with my own eyes!
Friends of mine got gangraped/stabbed/robbed by Moroccans.
We don't have any problems with any race as long as they live by the Dutch rules and not some book that says gays, women and non-muslims have no rights.
Most Arab/North African are not radical muslims ... you said generalisations ?
Thats what I meant by saying the NL was not tolerant regarding races.
Here in Canada, they are more Arabs/Middle-easterner than in Netherlands and they are mostly integrated and accepted.

We are tolerant regarding races only not with the North African/Arabs who think they can do whatever they want, we accepted them to long and did nothing, enough is enough!

How can you even compare Canada's situation with the Muslim invasion of Western Europe?

In Europe it has little to do with race. Actually, we like black or Asian people more than certain light-skinned Mediterranean ones from Muslim countries. It has more to do with the immigrants' willingness to adapt our culture. If we feel that willingness is missing and instead we are looked down upon in our own house, we reserve the right to dislike those people.

The percentage of Muslim population in the Netherlands is higher than in Canada

Honestly. Which other country has seen the integration and personal success of so many different people from so many different backgrounds and cultures and beliefs?
That's your opinion, but anyone reading these forums would think otherwise.

i suspect most of the arabs and people of middle east origin who moved to canada achieved some skills criteria , europe has tended to be a haven for people who are relativley unskilled and also more traditional and religous
