No, but our great achievements you were spouting about earlier are made in china and Japan.
But thanks for showing your cards.
It's not ALL cultures you are opposed to, just Muslims.

Only Muslims who are backwards and want to live in the past when the rest of the world has moved on.

Then why are we over there trying to alter their culture to fit ours?
Or are you ready to admit that America in fact is over there fighting a crusade, rather than trying to help "git dem dere terryists"?

I get it! In the "States" I'm a son of our "South". My father is from Arkansas. My family never owned "slaves" but always worked for what we had. It was never much, still ain't, but what we have had? Is ours! Nobody sweat or bled for it, except us. I have two Great, Great Uncle's that stole two mules from Lee's Army to plow thier fields. .. Me, Having fought for my families honor, under the "Stars and Stripes". I get where you're comming from. But I say again, my Nation and yours have lost thier roots. It's a sad state, when rebels, are "right". My family has fought this dishonor for over a hundred years. Never outside our family. What's this got to do with your OP? Everything, ..then? Nothing! People/persons/individuals don't just move to be what they are. They move to be better than that. If they want to be "me"? They need to go back home.

Whose past?
What rest of the world?
You mean the Christian world?
The ones that believe the earth is only 6000 years old and the sun revolves around it?
Yeah, moved on, sure.

Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%.

Guyana -- Muslim 10%.

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%.

Albania -- Muslim 70%.

What a absolutly stupid and ignorant post. Conflicts in Trinidad Tobago and Guyana are ETHNIC based and not RELIGIOUS. Google it for christ sake. Bosnia ? Lol. Do you even know where Bosnia is ? Have you ever heard about Yugoslavia ? Conflicts in Yougoslavia were between ETHNIC groups. You had muslims/Bosniaks fighting Serbs and Croats. Serbs/christians were fighting Croats/christians aswell. Croats/christians fought alongside Bosniaks/muslims against Serbs/christians. Google it before you post such crap. Albania ? ALBANIA ? Albania was socialist/communist state untill 1992. Do you know how they treat religion in a communist regime ? I wonder what else is wrong in your post when by the first look i found 4 major #ups. But no no. You copy/pasted this post because it looks pretty and it alligns with your agenda. You dont care whats right or wrong.
7 stars so far for that parade of ignorance. Deny ignorance my ass

America doesn't give a crap beyond the oil they don't even need anymore. America fighting a crusade? Nonsense. They are as we speak washing their hands and leaving the mid east to the tender care of Vlad or Shoygu. It will probably be an improvement regardless though. Iran isn't even as backwards as they say but the Saudis... They produce nothing but oil and have no value beyond that to the world, nor does their Wahhabist culture. I don't want Iran building nukes but at least they are capable of producing scientists who could build them. The Saudis can't say the same, anything involving technology they have to buy.

But I don't see either of our governments decrying Saudi Arabia.
In fact, they are so far up the Saudis ass you don't where one begins and the other ends.
I don't see anybody worried about saydi royalty traipsing around in there desert robes.
The only time anybody raises holy hell is when they are cutting political hay.
I know two or three Arabic girls.
Two are sisters. One lives the traditional way, the other dates a white guy and you wouldn't even know she was Arab if you didn't ask.
Their parents are Canadian as hell, and support both of their decisions.
It's not as black and white as any of you make it.

If people are given the opportunity for choice rather than expected to be obedient then that is very much inline with Canadian culture. I'm more worried about the scenarios where there is no choice involved.

Humans on this Earth planet are still too dumb and backwards to meet and interact with advanced Extraterrestrials on a inter-galactic and inter-dimensional level.

As you should be.
But you've made some blanket statements, based on far right conservative rhetoric.
I fear for our culture more when those voices are shouting loud enough to drown out reason.
I'm perfectly comfortable with my mixed ukranian British heritage.
I don't feel the least bit threatened by islam. I seriously doubt they are trying to take over Canada.
Too frigging cold.
And certainly am not for introducing laws that force people to conform to anything, or gives more power to police, spies, or anyone else whose primary focus is to limit my freedoms so they can live in their little police state utopia.
Do that, and you'll have more to fear from people like me than you will Muslims.

You make some good points. I would never want to live in a society or post on a forum where everyone agreed with me. This isn't trying to rub in my point, it really isn't but that is what makes western society great. Freedom of expression and ideas.

As Canadians, we've just settled what started to become a heated argument with reasonable compromise.
That's what we're known for, and that's the way we should be.
I'd buy you a beer if I was standing next to you, but I'm not, so
Now, take off hoser...

I visit Canada on a yearly basis, and have spend a lot of time in Ontario and the Maritime's, which I consider the heart of Canada. One thing most of these people that I know or have met understand, is respect. Most are bilingual, and have a healthy attitude about the integration of cultures. However, this debacle saddens many I do know there. I liken it to the same kind of disrespect my government shows to it's people occasionally, as power and biased agenda override common sense.

Well as I said from the beginning Canadians are a great people and have a great culture. You don't need me to worry about you I'm sure. Honey catches more flies than vinegar after all but just keep your head up and your eyes open. Not everyone in the world is as tolerant as you and wants what you want. I'm not talking about myself but I will forgive you if you think I am. I don't believe in your world view but it only comes from my protective instincts rather than malice for ideologies I perceive as potential threats.

Fair enough.
Canadians are a diverse group.
There is no majority culture here.
We started as a primarily Eurocentric, but even those cultures are diverse as well.
I like beer and brats.
I like perogies and cabbage rolls.
I like fish and chips.
I also like curry, chow mein, tacos, and baclava.
I work in the service industry with people from all cultures.
The ones who don't speak English so well try their damndest to fit in, and being intolerant or suspicious of them doesn't do a damn bit of good.
In the process I learn a bit about them.
Never met one who didn't want to be here, but they also want to preserve their culture.
I'm cool with that.
Just like my family celebrates ukranian Xmas every year.
I submit that a great deal of America's xenophobia comes from going to other countries and doing things they shouldn't be.
There is even a certain amount of anti Americanism in Canada, primarily because of the American attitude of superiority over other ways of doing things.
By now it should be obvious that this not the case.
The pervasive attitude of patriotic, "my country, right or wrong", is spectacularly wrong headed.
If you can't criticize yourself, then you have no business doing it to others.
In canada, the only thing we bitch about more than our local hockey team is the government.
And we certainly are patriotic, but nobody ever calls you anti Canada because you disagree with the government.
That's healthy.
Building walls around your border?
Sorry, but that is f*****g crazy.
