Are Moslems ready to live in the Western World? An immigrant's view.

Reading my blog one could come to the conclusion that I am a bleeding heart liberal, who adores his cats and and wears tie died shirts while using the words "groovy, man!" every other sentence.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It could be construed that I am against the existence of Israel.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It could be construed that I am an apologist for Moslems, and therefore that is why I am such a critic of Israel.

Nothing could be further from the truth.


I am simply an American patriot - an "America firster", if you will.

I look at political and economic issues with two questions (which are related anyway):

1) Is it good for the United States of America?
2) Is it good for Americans?

I have decided that the pro Israel Lobby is definitely NOT good for America nor Americans, and that it is a GREAT danger to our republic.

And that is why blog concentrates on this (in my view) most important and pressing issue in America.

But now it is time to set the record straight, lest my point of view is misrepresented.

If you want to know my views on Hamas, read up on them in my Contrarian View of the AmericanGoy blog.

Let me continue now being a contrarian to my own blog memes.

Lets take the immigration issue and analyze it, using the two most dangerous weapons in our arsenal: common sense and logic.

Please keep in mind, as you read this article, that I am an immigrant to the USA also.

So, to wit.

As an immigrant, I want to thank this great country, the USofA, for taking me in and allowing me to become its citizen. It is a great privilege and an honor to call myself an American Citizen.

That does not mean that America is perfect, and I feel entitled to criticize the hell out of my country, and especially its politicians. No man made thing is perfect, no man is perfect (well, perhaps myself :) and pointing out America's flaws (like the cancer of AIPAC influence on American political process) is to me a patriotic thing to do.

Having said all that, let me hit the immigration issue.

As an immigrant, I believe that the onus of becoming a good citizen of my new country lays squarely on my shoulders. What I mean is that as an immigrant, I ought and should strive to become a citizen of my new country.

This included learning the main language (or languages, say, if I emigrated to Canada I would feel obliged and duty bound to learn both English and French), learning the customs and social mores of my country's populations, and molding myself to become that country's citizen.

In my case, learning to be an American.

What I am saying is, that the host country should not bend over backward to make me, the immigrant, the petitioner, the beggar, the vagabond, comfortable. It is up to me to emigrate to a country, and then to adjust to that country's laws, social mores and the culture. It is up to the immigrant to adjust to the country, not the other way around.

As an immigrant, especially in a country with a tradition of freedom of speech, I can speak out on all kinds of issues, and even try to voice my displeasure at that country's laws.

But again, the onus is on me, the immigrant, to adapt to my new country.

After all, it is ME who wanted to come here - the country does not REALLY want me here, and most people are effectively neutral if not hostile to me being here.

And, as an immigrant, who recognizes that, it is up to me to realize two things:
1) I should support my new country first and foremost, otherwise what's the point of being a citizen

2) There are some things about my country that I should not try to change.

Point 1 should be obvious - you should not be a traitor to your new country (or even if you are a 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th or beyond generation citizen) - and you should never take other country's goals and needs over your own (the article below this one, AIPAC Treason Trial comes to mind here).

Point 2 is perhaps less obvious, and requires a modicum of common sense.

As one moves into a new, strange, weird and ultimately alien society in one's new country (And yes, in many instances America seems very alien, strange and outright silly to me - think baseball - pshaw! Baseball is ridiculous!) one accepts the new country.

One accepts the social customs.

One accepts the social norms.

One accepts the weird, strange and the outright silly.

One adapts.

And therefore, it is inconceivable when I happened upon this headline:
Muslims outraged at police advert featuring cute puppy sitting in policeman's hat.

Think about it.

People outraged over a picture of a puppy.

Here are some juicy snippets from the article:

A postcard featuring a cute puppy sitting in a policeman's hat advertising a Scottish police force's new telephone number has sparked outrage from Muslims.

Tayside Police's new non-emergency phone number has prompted complaints from members of the Islamic community.

The choice of image on the Tayside Police cards - a black dog sitting in a police officer's hat - has now been raised with Chief Constable John Vine.

This is absurd.

The advert has upset Muslims because dogs are considered ritually unclean and has sparked such anger that some shopkeepers in Dundee have refused to display the advert.

Dundee councillor Mohammed Asif said: 'My concern was that it's not welcomed by all communities, with the dog on the cards.

'It was probably a waste of resources going to these communities.

'They (the police) should have understood. Since then, the police have explained that it was an oversight on their part, and that if they'd seen it was going to cause upset they wouldn't have done it.'

I have several issues with this "logic".

Number one is, a picture of a cute puppy dog is acceptable to the majority of UK citizens, as indeed it is to the majority of the world.

Remember when I said that it is a duty of an immigrant to adapt himself or herself to his/her adopted country?

To adopt oneself to the country's social mores, unwritten (and written, legal, also of course) laws and customs?

This is perhaps the most silly example one could find where the whole multiculturalism aspect has run amok.

What should have happened is the community should have been politely but firmly told that in the UK, and all the rest of Europe, a picture of a puppy is not an offensive matter and, if you find cute puppies offensive, perhaps this is NOT the country for you and your family (or the whole continent...).

Kindly get the fuck out, Sir, oh, and have a nice day (mind the gap!).

How come no one is concerned about my rights?

When I go to visit London, the last thing I want to see is people praying on the street, like so:


You see, I am an atheist. A militant one at that. So looking at people praying publicly, in large groups, offends me. Especially when I try to go to a store and I have to watch my step, so that I don't kick a praying Moslem as he is laying on the pavement.

Oh, and the quote from the article: "Dundee councillor Mohammed Asif said: 'My concern was that it's not welcomed by all communities, with the dog on the cards."

Well, Councillor Mohammed Asif - nothing, ever was, is or will be acceptable to ALL communities. What one community finds disturbing, the other finds funny.

Can you think of an example, Mr. Asif?

Hmmmm, can't think of one... I could perhaps say that a picture of a cute puppy dog would bring a cheer to kids and their parents' faces, and would be greeted by at the most indifference by the majority of UK citizens and Europeans... except for one, maladjusted, unassimilated group of people.

But that example would be just silly.

Unreal.

Impossible to fathom.

And how about the example of the Danish cartoonist drawings of Mohammed the prophet?

Islam is no laughing matter. The Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten is being protected by security guards and several cartoonists have gone into hiding after the newspaper published a series of twelve cartoons about the prophet Muhammad. According to the Islam it is blasphemous to make images of the prophet. Muslim fundamentalists have threatened to bomb the paper’s offices and kill the cartoonists.

Well, fellow immigrants, let me teach you something about the Western world.

The most important thing we have here, especially in the USA, but in most European countries also, is free speech (of course questioning the Jewish Holocaust in WW2 is forbidden in many countries, and you will be arrested for it, but that is another matter).

Let me repeat that - we have

FREE SPEECH

Which means that me, you, and anybody can pretty much say anything that you want. You can, for example, criticize religion.

You could, if you wanted have a picture of a crucifix, with the figure of Christ on it, the symbol on Christianity, in a vat of piss.

The title of this "art" is 'pissed Christ' - get it? It's so funneh!

It's "art"!

Now, the Christians in this country were pissed, and indeed, Christians around the world were pissed (Haha, another funneh - and yes, it seems that that was the whole point of this "art" piece)

But they could not do anything - because, as odious and disgusting the 'pissed Christ' was to them, they recognize that there is one thing that trumps their concern.

Can you guess what it is?

Dare I whisper it... shh! Free Speech!

But somehow this does not apply to Moslems who emigrated to Denmark, as the case of drawings of Mohammed prove.

Well, Denmark, and indeed all of the Western World, Europe including the UK, the USA and indeed any country which considers itself a democracy (or, dare I say it, part of the Western world) has a choice.

You could accept more and more immigrants, and accept that the huge numbers of those immigrants will change your country into something which you won't recognize, with social norms and customs and perhaps even legal, enforced by the courts laws changed to suit the new arrivals...

Or...

The Western world could realize that the societies which were built for hundreds, and in the case of Europe thousands of years, are worth saving. That the cultures, the social norms, the laws, the way that things are done, are worth keeping.

That when one immigrates to a country, as an outsider, it was the immigrant who should make an honest effort to fit in, and not the other way around.

And just to ram my point home about how important free speech is to the Western World, our (yes, mine too now) traditions, our customs, our way of doing things, our cultures, countries and our future, I will say this:

Mohammed was raped by Jesus, and they were joined by Moses, who gave them both a blowjob. They then had an orgy, and they came on each other, with Jesus' cum landing on Moses, Moses coming on Mohammed and Mohammed coming in Jesus' ass. Meanwhile, right next to them, Buddha was raping Jaini as his bells were twinkling, and Ghandhi put his penis in Buddha's mouth... as Yahveh masturbated as he watched the scene.

Does this offend you?

Too fucking bad!

Do you want to come to my house and kill me for writing this (admittedly) pretty stupid, silly and idiotic paragraph?

Then, may I respectfully suggest, that perhaps this country, this Western world full of its own culture, social norms and unwritten and written laws, is not for YOU.


Bonus Material: The Danger of Immigration

There is only one main danger to immigration.

And that is lack of assimilation.

Every nation, no matter how multicultural or politically correct, has laws, both legal, written in the constitutions, declarations, and the society's unwritten, accepted laws.

In France, in Denmark, in Germany - they do things a bit differently, and in America, we do things another way. As an example, no one will ask you in Europe "How are you?", unless they noticed that there was something wrong with you and were asking if you are really all right. Just one example among thousands more.

In many Arab countries, women are required to wear a burka, the all covering cloth for females. And guess what - as a visitor to their country, it would behoove you to respect their laws, customs and social norms.

It works both ways...

Anyhoo...

The main danger with immigration is that when too many immigrants are allowed to enter a country, their social customs, their social norms and laws take over.

Especially when the immigrants into a country are a homogeneous group, like for example Mexican immigrants in the USA or Turks in Germany or North African Moslems in France.

When that happens, the country's social norms, its customs and unwritten laws of what is acceptable change.

Many people think it is a good thing, that we are becoming more multicultural, that most countries in the Western world the influx of the immigrants from Third World countries (Arabs and Africans mostly in Europe, Mexicans and other Latinos in the USA) the social mores, make up of the society changes.

I am not so sure.

And, I suspect, neither are the Americans, Germans, French, Italians, Danes, Swedes who see how their countries change.

Interestingly, there is one country in the world which is specifically a homeland for one religion, and which actively tries to ethnically cleanse other ethnic groups, other religious groups from its nation.

That nation is Israel (I strongly suggest you read the Magnes Zionist account of exactly how devious that ethnic cleansing is).

Which is curious, as Jews around the world, in every country, including the USA, all are very liberal and are pro multiculturalism, pro minority rights and pro immigration - except for the nation of Israel, which is of course a special case.
(Did I say all Jews? There I go generalizing again, which makes me a racist, right? Because one is only supposed to talk like this in a close circle of one's family and friends, and then walk outside and put on the politically correct happy face to the world).

But that is a topic for another article.

hola :) Thanks for the visit to my blog and I thought I'd let you know.... It is not spelled "Moslems" but Moslem's or Muslim's you immigrant polish sausage you... :D

And cause we're so much alike in proving what we read by our research... just for you I thought I'd do the following:

"The ordinary word in English is "Muslim", pronounced /'mʊs.lɪm/ or /'mʌz.ləm/. The word is pronounced /'mʊslɪm/ in Arabic.

It is sometimes spelled "Moslem", which some regard as offensive.

English writers of the 19th century and earlier sometimes used the words Mussulman, Musselman, or Mussulmaun. Variant forms of this word are still used by many Indo-European languages. These words are similar to the Turkish, Kurdish, Persian, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian,Hindi and Portuguese words for "Muslim"."

PS: we should go out drinking sometime, but I figure I'd wait till you end up with a "moslem" as President and start selling McShwarma's :D since who eats a Big Mac these days anyway?

Long time no speak you Geisha you :P You should drop by again to my blog... you might like my latest commentary on Religious Freedom in the US Military... oh and of course the end of the world... my favorite subject (makes the shwarma digest better...)

Its nice to see someone liberal that sees this.

The Pandagon blog, run by Amy Marcotte, actually blamed the Europeans for Muslims behavior there, saying that if the Europeans were more accepting and didn't insist on the Muslims trying to assimilate, the Muslims wouldn't do the intolerable things (like honor killings, cartoonist killings, Gert Wilder killing, rape of western girls, high rate of muggings and robberies, etc) that they do.

In other words, its the victims fault for not being nice enough to the mugger. Just crazy.

So the feminist aMANda Marcotte is now going by the name of Amy Marcotte. LMFAO! American Women are out of their fucking minds. They are utterly brainwashed by Feminism. Do they not stop to ask themselves who created feminism and what it's ultimate goal is? What a bunch of suckers.

You know, I always question the validity of articles about Muslim rage over something so trivial.. Like the one story (in the Telegraph, I believe) about Muslims being angry over some snack food not being Halal, or that the ingredients included some part of a pig.

I mean, really? Would Muslims really get so angry over a postcard? Considering we have other problems, you know, like the decimation of Iraq, the occupation of Palestine, the threat of a war with Iran, daily massacres in Afghanistan, Pakistan on the brink of disaster, being under constant surveillance in the Western nations we've come to adopt as home.. And we would be engraged over this??

As a Muslim living in the US (I was born here but my parents immigrated here 25 years ago) I have never, ever expected American society or customs to change to suit my beliefs, neither have my family or any of the many, many Muslim immigrants I've met. On the contrary, most have been eager to adopt new customs and traditions and balance them with their own beliefs. Thanksgiving is popular, for example.

I don't know that this article was real or exaggerated, but I know that enough hit pieces have been written about Muslims to portray us as intolerant monsters to question anything that sounds so over the top ridiculous.

How ironic that you posted this abomination of a post on the eve of the Fourth of July, when Americans celebrate all the freedoms afforded them by the Jewish people.

Without us, your economic and technological superiority would not exist.

Without us, your moral high ground would turn into a valley.

Without us, your pretenses for conquering the nations of Muslim savages would not exist.

Without us, your contaminated gene pools and stunted intelligences would be unable to manage things as complicated as large-scale economy and world leadership.

Without us, your culture would be a mere footnote.

Without us, your music and entertainment would be bland, unimaginative and not worthy even of dogs.

Without us, you are nothing. It's time the ungrateful goyim recognized the debt they owe for their success to the superior intellects that guide them.

You should not give consideration to savage tribalists who worship a space rock when your time would be far better spent reflecting on the magnificence of the Jewish people.

I love your blog but you're off on a few key points. First, this isn't Europe. You can't commit genocide, slavery and over-run someone's nation and then consider that a "culture of the country" should reign supreme without some people calling that into question. Well you could rest upon the supremacy of American Indian culture or use a synthesis of the cultural and moral legacy...

The second point. Freedom of speech in this democracy is not free. If you moved a few shades over and started to get your messge out more successfully you will see that. Actually I cannot imagine that a person who spends any time dealing with the AIPAC and Jewish supremacist question would not already understand this. It would also lead you into some serious questioning about the validity of Western democracy and especially the perversion of "democratic" government in the West.

Finally, I am sure that the people of the Third World that basically had their world frozen and then set back for centuries while the Western world advanced upon their sweat, knowledge and resources have difficulty seeing your viewpoint about immigration. I think these people should stay home and build their own societies but I also know that my dear country's rulers are not allowing them to do that in peace. I also know that these rules encourage the destruction and clashes of cultures and nationalities and promote rootless cosmopolitanism. You have to look for the root cause. That reminds me, Zionism is not really all about Israel you know...

The Muslim people are not angry because of a dog. The so called leadership, in service to Zionism and other forces promote this sort of thing. If you ask the average Muslim guy or girl they will go on about government policies promoted by Zionism that include the destruction of their homelands and the pain caused in Muslim community. The second issue will ordinarily be about how they are struggling on the economic and social periphery of society. th third thing would almost certainly be the decadence of morality and community habits common to Christianity and Islam because of the garbage and mental and spiritual rot being served up in Zionist controlled media.
