Intrepid, there wouldn't be any drama, if the immigrants were happy to settle into another culture and adopt, in some ways, its lifestyle.
This is true for Hindus and Chinese, the respect the cultures they are in (as far as I have seen) and try to fit in with others of that culture.
However this situation is NOT happening with some of the Muslims in Europe - a vocal minority of them I suspect.
Instead of changing their lifestyle to fit into their adopted countires, they demand that the locals of the country change to adapt to THEIR
There are many examples of this in the media, to such an extent in England where some muslims wnt to fight against the British forces or demand a
muslim overthrow of England itself.
You don't have to go far in society to see this refusal to adapt to the local laws and customs, from refusal to be photographed without a full hajib
for female drivers, to students refusing to attend a class when the teacher wore shorts in the middle of summer.
Eventually it will create a backlash, when the people will start to say "enough is enough", and when Al Quaeda step over the mark. (Of course this
may never happen in spineless spain, where people would rather capitualate to terrorist demands than stand on their rights)
