I do not always agree with everything Russian but in the case of Islamic immigration demanding we respect them, their traditions and laws. Then I’m whole heartily in agreement with President Putin. All western nations should adopt the same policy across the board. If Islamic fanatics are elected to positions of power in the various governments Europe could be lost. See his speech attached below.
August 04, 2013:> Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities
“….In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.
Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit
their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not
tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the
suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.
When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians….”
It is time our government did the same!!! I came as an immigrant in 1964, there were no handouts, no grants, no special housing or allowances. Yet I managed very well, I worked hard and lived by the laws of the land. Canada has been good to me and in turn I have endeavoured to give back to the land I call home. I did not demand Canadians respect me or my Irish traditions, instead I earned the respect of my neighbours and friends, and that should be the goal of all new immigrants to this great land.
God Bless and keep reading—and if this sign off offends, Tough!!!!!
