yourname2000 saidIslam is an ideology as much as it's a religion (maybe more so), and that ideology is thoroughly at odds with democracy and tolerance. I personally don't think it's too much to ask anyone entering the US to sign a declaration stating they understand this and hold the US's priorities ABOVE any tenets of their own ideology that they're bringing into the country.
What I have found especially offensive about Islam and *some* Muslim immigrants is that they would suggest that the US's (and Canada's) policy of religious tolerance should allow them to exercise their own intolerance of others; and, even allow them to enact sharia law (superseding the countries' own legal systems) within their own communities. That's just absurd.
While in Rome, do as the Romans. And if you can't muster that, why are you coming here again??
We've seen this play out in many very tolerant western European countries over the last decade or so culminating in the 'no-go' zones in several major cities and then of course the annual riots plus the recent unrest in France over gay marriage. Although the media is very PC about it, one can just about guarantee where that unrest is coming from. Hopefully, we're not going to let this happen in the United States to this extent. I'd prefer to shut down ALL immigration period if we have to be 'fair' to keep these folks out.
Even on a more micro scale, The gym I joined locally on opening weekend back around Memorial Day 2007 had gotten so bad by the time I moved back here in Sept 2010, that I found myself working out with almost 100% Muslim youth, mostly Palestinian and Egyptian. I gave it try to get along, but it didn't last long with several near fights defending the Jewish population, plus one real fight over their threats to kill GWB and Dick Cheney. In spite of my political inclinations, I would do exactly the same if the threat was regarding Bill Clinton or Obama..
Most came here on student visa to go to Ohio State, but a few never got around to going to school. They also didn't know the phrases 'don't like' or 'don't care for' as all they know is the word 'hate'. Even the two that were actually born here don't consider themselves American .... it's Muslim first and then Palestinian and being an 'American' way down the list somewhere. They came here and within a few short months, act like they own the place, and everyone else is too PC to say anything about it.
We have, in Columbus, a very well integrated and philanthropic Jewish population that does huge charitable good for the city. I never ever ever heard anti-Semitism around here until this group came to town ... I mean true pure Jew hate, expressed often and loudly.
