Reader comment on: Muslims Angry Over Spanish Citizenship for Jews
Submitted by Gleaner1, Dec 21, 2012 11:46
It may have escaped the memories of those now engaged in special pleading that their co-religionists placed bombs on two trains entering Madrid, killing some 198 innocent people and injuring many more a few years ago; how time flies. I really cannot recall Jews, Protestants, or Buddhists doing such a thing. Neither can I recall records stating that the Jewish population was bent on compelling those of other faiths to follow the example of a 7th century "prophet" known more for his inhumanity than his charity.
The future for Western Europe is now becoming clear. If Muslim immigration is not slowed and then halted, problems of refusal to integrate with the host society will be at one level. If Muslims already in Spain, establishing ever larger families while demanding more and more cultural concessions, are not removed to their ancestrial homelands, it's quite possible the trouble will be of a differant magnitude.
It's up to the Spanish people - not the Muslim colonisers - to decide whether to grant rights to Jews in modern Spain. Most Spanish people, not blinded by a misplaced sense of guilt fed by leftist propaganda, will understand which of the two groups are likely to bring the most benifits.
