Muslims in America

From a post of mine on Rightnation:

The funny thing is that America, which according to you all is weak and to lenient on radicals in America, doesn’t have a problem with homegrown Islamic radicals! How many American born Muslims do you see advocating for America to be an Islamic state? Next to none. It is precisely are openness and willingness to accept other cultures that makes Muslims feel welcome in this country and makes them want to integrate. The British attitude towards its Muslims isolates them and makes a large segment of them feel no loyalty to or identify with their country. Treating people like they don’t belong is a self-fulfilling prophecy. When we accept Muslims and their culture in America, they accept us and our culture and feel like they have an American identity. They even adapt to our culture and become a part of it. Tolerance is a two way street.

Remember the idea that America is one great melting pot of different people’s and cultures? That is part of what makes America a great nation. This is something America is doing right, and we should keep doing what we are doing. The British should be following our model.
