The same was once said of the Irish.......................

We've got the largest community of Muslims here in Michigan.....


For the most part - they pay their taxes - and just get along --- just like everyone else..........

....................

Remember WWII and the incarceration of all the American citizens of Japanese descent????

I worked with a guy who was in one of those camps... A very smart, funny engineer....

His take -- "WTF kind of stupid was it locking up the Japanese??? You can see a guy is Japanese -- or at least some kind of oriental -- and keep an eye on him......

Germans??? They were fucking EVERYWHERE.... Nobody thought to lock THEM up......"

...

The Brits introduced Internment in the 70's in N. Ireland. Basically power to arrest and imprison "suspected" terrorists without trail. Basically arrest any Irish nationalist ( hardly any loyalists) or on mainland Britan, arrest any Irish person. The Brits used torture during interrogation This caused outrage and only made sure the IRA had a massive influx of support and volunteers. I also became a supporter of the IRA and hated the Brits.... I was only 9 or 10 years old at the time. The whole thing backfired on the Brits and ended up prolonging the "troubles".

There is no need to panic over this, no need for deportations.
I mean, how many Muslims there are in Germany? 3-4 million? They can deal with at least 6.
I'm positive that Germans, even in difficult times such as these, will find the best ...how can I put it...solution.
The solution may or may not cause the prices of soap to drop.

Looking more and more like this was an attack directed at migrants rather than an attack by migrants.

Good thing you weren't a Londoner in 1940.

In case you wonder why I am so interested in this - I was born and raised there.

I lived in Garching bei München before moving back to Scotland last year. I still have relatives in Munich.

My husband even recognised the car park in the video. I actually wish I was back there now.

I live in a suburb of a big city. My town is the most diverse, ethnically, in my state. I drive down the street, I see kids (also adults) of different races walking together, playing together, talking together. I go to the high school graduation and hear the valedictorian and salutatorians talking about how much they've learned from being in a school where kids have different backgrounds and religions, including Islam.

Doesn't mean that there will be no people who turn to terror, but it does mean that there will be fewer groups of people who feel left out/lesser, etc.

And as an atheist, I keep plugging against the god concept. I support initiatives that require children to be educated in critical thinking.

The best way to fight fundamentalism is to present a better alternative, not to oppose it with equally violent and dismissive tactics.

I'm all for getting rid of religion altogether. However I know that won't happen for a long time, if ever. So in the mean time, I'll feel comfortable banning religious groups that refuse to integrate into Western society.

How are sending your kids to public school, working, serving on a jury, voting, and paying taxes refusing to integrate into society? The Muslims in my town do these things.

Asking that these citizens be banned solely because of their religion is pure bigotry.

RE: Shooting at Munich shopping mall
Random, only somewhat related story: The other night while I was doing yet another inmate hospital escort I met a college aged Syrian and recent immigrant working as a hospital security guard. Turns out he spent some time in China before Syria went to shit and he moved to Canada. We spent the rest of the night having conversations in Chinese between his patrols. I love the looks on peoples' faces when they see a white 'murican and a young Arab conversing in Chinese as they try to listen in through the filters of their preconceived view of the world.

So I read there are 21 injured, 10 dead, one of the 10 is the shooter who they think acted on his own.

Public transport is running again.

The shooter was an 18 year old dual national German/Iranian who lived in Munich for several years. Motive remains unclear.
