damn arab immigrants.

This city has gone south the last 5 years.
It is not uncommon anymore with 5-10 cars torched each weekend. Last December we had full-scale riots. Not a day goes by without someone being brutally mugged, beaten, knifed or raped.

This weekend alone I was affected by..
.. friday night someone blew up the doorphone. Black hole in the wall, twisted metal and a few wires is all that's left. That explains why it rang erratically around midnight.
.. hand grenade thrown into restaurant 200 yards from me. Thankfully it was after closing time so no-one was hurt but being woke up by a hand grenade blast 3.30 AM is not what I call quiet either.
.. a close friend tried to interrupt some thugs beating up a girl on the street. Before doing so he wisely called the police, unfortunately the thugs called for their backup too. Arriving in a black BMW X5 four wannabe mafiosos jump out and start beating him, luckily the police arrives about the same time and my friend walks away with no major harm.

Currently I'm saving about 60% of my income to afford a house as far away from here as possible. It will be a day of celebration when I leave.

Heard a report about the birth rate differential in Europe -- in which unassimilating muslims are far out-reproducing natural-born Europeans. At the current differential, Muslims will comprise 40% of the population in another generation. Nothing wrong with being Muslim (he hastily adds).

But there is no denying that it will change Europe more fundamentally than all of the wars of the previous century. Europeans used to like war and they were quite good at it. Now the lazy bastards can't even be bothered with screwing & raising children. They have to import others to get work done.

Welcome to my world.

I have been referring to my home state as Mexifornia for years now.

The TV show The Last Comic Standing had a black comedian from Atlanta, who was doing his routine. He said he had living in L.A. for a few years now, and made the joke, "Mexico must be empty, because they are all living here".

That 40%-figure sounds like usual racist propaganda, heard it (or similar) before from white power and ultra-nationalist types.

I don't believe it because first: not all Arab immigrants are Muslims and second, more importantly: the vast majority of them behave quite well. They get language skills, education, jobs and integrate/adapt to our society and this process tends to "de-islamize" them eventually to the point where they no longer attend to any Muslim activities, not even Ramadan or the Eid-festivities. After one (well-behaved!) generation these people become almost ordinary Swedes; work, pay taxes and talks without horrible accents. I've seen some even taking up western customs like celebrating christmas (tree, presents, dinner but not the jesus part).

Then there's the not-so well behaving bunch.. General refusal of learning the language, getting any education or work, settling in the poor high-rise suburbs and living on state welfare. No wonder their kids grow up to be small-time gangsters vandalizing, mugging and rioting.. kids never had any future anyway, if they choose to believe their no.1 role models in life = their parents!
Funny this latter "sludge of the society" types are the ones generally holding their religion very high and undisputable.

It's as plain as the day for me, the common denominator for these losers are their religion. May they be Muslims from arab countries, ex-yugoslavian or albanian, they are vastly over-represented in crime statistics.

To summarize, I don't agree with that report mentioned. Muslims will not take over western europe and yes there is a problem being muslim.
