Europe’s open door policy to Muslim immigrants has utterly failed.
Its tolerance of the intolerant tenets of Islamic law and practices under the banner of multiculturalism has also failed. Great Britain is a case in point. Muslims have created their own segregated communities by choice. Even pro-immigration leaders are admitting they were wrong in their optimism that Muslims would willingly integrate into British society over time.
As the saying goes, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” A former head of Great Britain’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), Trevor Phillips, came to that realization after doing a 180 degree turn on the issue of Muslim immigrant integration. As a member of the Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia,

fade with time and contact,” Trevor Philips, who commissioned the poll
for use in a TV documentary, wrote in a column entitled “An Inconvenient Truth.”
His revealing column appeared in the Sunday Times
on April 10th. “But thanks to the most detailed and comprehensive
survey of British Muslim opinion yet conducted, we now know that just
isn’t how it is,” he added. Read it all here...............
