What do you mean the culture of the past does not bode well for the future?

How many mosques are there in braziL?and what is their immigration policy? isn't brazil a catholic country predominately? and there's always the exception to the rule. However the inequalities in brazil can be compared to a civil war, so much for diversity then?

So first you say Brazil doesn't have a lot of diversity...and then you list the social issues and say "so much for diversity, huh?".

Yeah, makes perfect sense


FYI, the issues in Brazil aren't caused by racial tension, they're caused because of social issues (inequality in income, etc.). The same goes for a lot of Middle Eastern countries that are now seeing a revolution. Compare how the ruling class lived in Lybia compared to the average Joe. One reason those revolutions kicked off is because thanks to the Internet/TV, people there now see what kind of freedoms and equality (at least to some extent) we have in the West, and they want in.

Regarding the whole "multiculturalism is bad" nonsense, just look at some of the countries with the highest immigration rights like Switzerland. Yes, the country who's been rated as the "economically most competitive" in the world also has one of the highest immigration rates.

Where did I state brazil was not diverse? Jeeze , another one, a deceiver. And normal libyans were looked after by gadafi a lot better then most african peoples.
Freedom in the west? I can't even smoke in a pub! I can't protest without permission and then I will be kettled. Freedom my backside.

In case you care why this got through...

Almost no one went to vote on it because they considered it a ridiculous proposal. Sadly, that bit them in the ass because the only people voting on it were anti-Islamist groups like the feminist organisation. Sometimes democracy backfires if people are too lazy to vote

How does inequality equal civil war? What type of inequality are you referring to? Immigration is what made Brazil what it is today. Its rich in culture and tradition. As for mosques I dont think thats relevant.

can anybody comment on the fact that Mohammed is the most popular name for newborn boys in the u.k? And the fact that white british have on average 1.6 children per family and muslim families have considerably more. What will happen when the baby boomers die? In 50years time I predict the sharia law party will win power or may be an islamic national party will gain power and evict the indigenous . Does anybody care?
still waiting for some comments on this post, bit close to the bone I think.

The only reason why multiculturalism has failings is entirely due to a small number of intolerants, of all cultures.

Err...which planet do you live on? Ever heard of islam?

Correlation =/= causation.

And you really cant compare past immigration with current mass immigration of fundamentalist and isolationist muslims from north africa and the middle east.

There's nothing wrong with someone holding a religious fundamentalist viewpoint, just so long as their actions do not transgress the laws of their society.

Anyone who flouts the reasonable laws of their nation display a complete lack of respect for their society and others, whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims.

I've never understood this idea that Muslims should somehow be held to a higher standard than others.

Yes, I've heard of it, and roughly 4% of my compatriots practice this religion.


Sorry, was there a point to your post ?
