Many newcomers to Canada and Europe are demanding laws similar to those from which they claim to be seeking refuge.
Newcomers soon start demanding privileges. They ask for gender segregation at work and in educational institutions; they ask for faith schools (madrasas), and demand an end to any criticism of their extremist practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriages, child marriages and inciting hatred for other religions. They call any criticism "Islamophobia". They seek to establish a parallel justice system such as sharia courts.
They are also unlikely, on different pretexts, to support any anti-terror or anti-extremism programs. They seem to focus only on criticizing the policies of West.
It is now the responsibility of Western governments to curb this growing turbulence of religious fundamentalism. Western governments need to require "hardline" Muslims to follow the laws of the land.
Extremists need to be stopped from driving civilization to a collision course before the freedoms, for which so many have worked so hard and sacrificed so much are -- through indifference or political opportunism -- completely abolished.Terror attacks and other offshoots of Islamic extremism have created
an atmosphere of mistrust between Europe's natives and thousands of
those who entered European countries to seek shelter.
The situation is turning the Europeans against their own governments
and against those advocating help for the war-torn migrants who have
been arriving.Europeans are turning hostile towards the idea of freedom and
peaceful coexistence; they have apparently been seeing newcomers as
seeking exceptions to the rules and culture of West. In an unprecedented shift in policy after public fury about security, the German government decided to shut down the mosque
where the terrorist who rammed a truck into a shopping market in
Berlin, Anis Amri, was radicalized before hecommitted the crime.
The mosque and Islamic center at Fussilet 33 in Berlin had apparently
also been radicalizing a number of other youths by convincing them to
commit terror attacks in Europe and to join the terror group Islamic
State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The authorities had the mosque under surveillance
for a time but did not make a move before 12 innocent civilians were
butchered by Amri on December 19, 2016, while leaving around 50 others
The police and counter terror authorities also conducted raids in 60 different German cities and searched around 190 mosques to target kingpins of another group called "The True Religion". Europeans appear to be seeking an alternative way to control this social disruption. Many Muslims want to live in segregated areas where they strive to
create the kind of culture they left behind before settling in the West.
This preference, however, seems to lead to a rise in extremism and is proving counterproductive for the society as a whole.
