Lets get this straight mate;
When YOU move into another country, you're suppose to fit in, to adjust, to adhere and be willing to assimilate and do your best to belong to the
culture, customs and traditions, and to abide by the laws of the country that is willing to accept you.
NOT the other way around. I dont go to another person's house and behave like I'm in my own house and force them to abide by my rules. I'm a guest,
and you know what? A great host recognizes my effort and will end up treating me nicely, knows how hard it is, and tries his best to make me feel
comfortable on a strange land by giving me all I need to feel at home.
Now if I move to another country with the mindset of creating my own little country inside their borders, forcing my way in with my habits, laws and
customs, its perfectly normal that I'll start to be hated. To every country I lived in, I always tried to behave according to the host's rules.
When you move to a foreign country, you must be ready to behave accordingly to that country's culture. You speak of "how they dress" as if its a
nonsense issue, but its just a sample. If you're not willing to change a simple thing as the way you dress because in that country the dress code is
different, then you're not ready to change country. That goes for muslim women, if you move to a non burka country, you CAN'T use the damn thing! I
have nothing against burkas in their homeland but I do have an issue when they pass by me like some kind of weird ghostly ninjas and honestly it gives
me the urge to say "Dress normally or GTFO - This is NOT our culture!"
You must be ready to make some changes in yourself when you move to a foreign country, in return that foreign country will give you what you went
there in search of, be it a better job, more money, etc. In the end, if all goes well and each part fulfills their part, you know, one hand washes the
other. Its like a marriage; two different people living together willing to change some stuff for a greater purpose.
As for the foreigner to a land, you dont have to completely forget your old habits, because the host country already has a number of things set up for
you to be comfortable with like, if your muslim in a christian country, I'm sure they'll have a mosque there for you, if you're used to driving a
car that has its steering wheel to the left, thats alright, you can drive it in britain for instance, as long as you stick to the left side of the
road. You see, from the smallest things to the more important ones, theres always a good faith by the country that hosts to make you feel adjusted.
So, do the same, act in good faith and adjust yourself. That or you'll one of those who I really hate because they dont even bother to learn the
host's language and keep insisting on using their original language in a foreign country - I would kick those out just for that reason alone. The
You know... when in Rome, be a Roman. Don't wait for Romans to accept you as a Dacian when they already know you're a dacian and you'll earn much
more respect if they see you're making a huge effort to fit in - don't worry, you'll always be a dacian.
One more thing... your sentence about "being afraid of a minority just make more babies" and whatever, was extremely rude and its just fuel to the
fire - that kind of attitude usually escalates to something more serious. I'm truly amazed that nobody here said "well instead of babies, we can
always get more bullets".
