France is not a succesful example of integration of peoples and segregation of religion. In truth France strikes me as more of a powder keg ready to blow at this very moment than any other European nation.
Recently in the Netherlands, I came to appreciate how much the nation has changed in the last ten years. I can understand the sense of being overrun by foreign peoples with an alien religion and a separate rule of law then pushing native Dutch to the point of wanting that group of people expelled or the religion strictly curtailed all the way to banning their holy book. It is understandable given what I know of Dutch personality and the current pressures.
The Dutch should have much greater concern for the rising sea waters. Perhaps the Dutch should find another place on Earth to live that is at least a mile high, and then they could leave their soon to be sunken realm to the all of the Muslim immigrants. That would be one very 'squirrelly' solution to the problems.

I am not a follower of Islam but as far as I know from what I have studied this religion in itself does not teach hatred or violence so I don't know where most of you people are getting that information or perception from... The violence in Islamic belief comes from extremist belief and their adaptations of what they think is right, nothing whatsoever to do with believers of Islam who follow the Koran.
If you ask me Islam is a better religion than Christianity any day because at least it doesn't teach violence or hatred in it's OFFICIAL writings or Holy book as any proper religion would...
You associate Islam with terrorism when it's clearly the opposite side who are the biggest terrorists in the world!

What I don't understand is that if Islam is such a terrible [insert metaphor here] religion then why is the fastest growing religion in the world?
Men AND women around the world are turning to the Islamic religion from other faiths, mosques are full on Friday which is unlike the attendance that Christianity receives during Sunday. 'Mohammed' is the world's most popular name and the Koran is the most sold book.
One could attribute it to births [some may think they like to have many kids] but I am seeing many many converts too.
If Islam had such flawed principles then I doubt it would be where it is today.
