Once again at the risk of appearing as a racist I have to ask this question. Via the news media we see hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees fleeing from their war torn lands to the safety of Europe and Western Nations. However, there are other wealthy and peaceful middle eastern nations in the region, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia just to name a couple. These nations are Muslim, have similar customs, similar diets, similar laws and similar languages. Surely confronted with such violence people would flee to anywhere safe to get away from the war and killings. Does it not make sense to flee to another nearby nation, a nation that shares similar values. Why is it only to Europe? is it possible these other Muslim countries will not accept refugees? Seems a bit odd, if the religion of Islam is about love and peace then one would expect them to offer aid to other Muslims. I find it very difficult, indeed almost impossible to understand just what the Muslim race want from us. On one hand we are told they are a peaceful race, but then we have ISIS, the Twin Towers, and the many other acts of terrorism and murder perpetrated on the very people willing to help them. From what I’m led to understand once Muslims arrive safely in countries like Canada, they are welcomed and provided for until they can get back on their feet. Yet once they become established they begin to complain that we offend them with our traditions and our customs. It is offensive to say Merry Christmas! don’t dare say God Bless when a Muslim sneezes! and change the rules at the local pool so women can swim alone, no men allowed. These are the things that offend me, so if that makes me a racist then so be it. I will continue saying God Bless, Merry Christmas and continue to obey the laws of this great nation.
God Bless and keep reading
