Multiculturalism not necessary. As if Your Culture doesn't have your own brand of extremists. "Loose immigration policies"? I know people who have to deal with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship here and I can tell you that's definitely not the case. That's the thing. Australia at least does not "blindly" admit anyone into the country, and ultimately it shouldn't. If you don't have close family here and aren't in the "high demand" occupations (like doctors and engineers) and don't speak English then you can forget about coming to Australia. We accept refugees only if they come by plane; ie, rich ones. Now, I support immigration reform here, closing some loopholes but at the same time opening new opportunities for immigrants and refugees, but a multicultural policy is not an open borders policy. 1.7% of the population here are Muslim. It's 0.8% in the United States, 2% in Denmark and Sweden, 2.7% in the United Kingdom, 3% in Belgium and 4% in Germany. France is by far the highest in Western Europe at 6%. It's not like Europeans are really being swamped by Muslims either. As for Muslims from problematic countries, here in Melbourne I've met Bosnians, Afghans, Somalis, Sudanese, Turks and Iranians. We've 80,000 Iraqis here and 20,000 Pakistanis. You're kidding. 25% of our population is foreign-born. a) I think he actuallly has a good point, you've got to take measures to protect yourselves in public and b) more importantly, you've the right to freedom of speech no matter how unsensitive it is. If I get a dollar every time I hear or read about Germans complaining about their Turks not assimilating... Terrorist operatives don't get to be terrorist operatives without knowing how to conceal himself and his true motives. If I was an Al Qaeda operative I'd be presenting myself to Immigration as a liberal ex-Muslim. I'd have little trouble entering the country or even immigrating unless the system excludes all Muslims, which is probably not what you're advocating. To deal with terrorism, we don't need an exclusionary immigration system, we need better intelligence.
