I don't believe anything and everything I read I try and interpret all of what is put before me (more than ever these days there is so much information out there and effectively support for your 'truth' however unlikely/downright false - I mean flat earthers anyone!!??). I simply posted this link because previously all the links were by equally biased writers, but biased in the ways that mirrored the posters views. You see they as well as I can be blinded to the truth, what even is the truth? some foreign people want to live a nice life in their own country, some want to come to our countries to live a nice life and some want to kill us for some reason. I would say the links posted are not representative of the proportions involved. I'm sure I would put a far lower % on those that want to kill us than other posters.
This is a prefect example of how tensions can build, we see the odd atrocity reported on the news we don't experience sneers or comments when we pop to the shops, if you make these meek and mild genuine citizens grow into an enemy that's all they will/can ever be?
But this is precisely why we shouldn't be like them, we are meant to be forward thinking, we are better than that, we try and lead by example in treating them better than we would be treated ourselves?
How others conduct themselves should not determine how we conduct ourselves.........
a far lower % wanting to kill us vs how many are here yes, but a far higher % of those wanting to kill us vs us wanting to kill them. how many american terrorists go to live in iraq or iran and commit acts of violence against people over there?
i've experienced the sneers and comments when abroad, it's not like it's a new thing, it's how you handle it. when the irish and other groups of people came to the u.s. they got the same "outsider" treatment, but they didn't go and write news articles on how everybody wasn't being nice to them. it's on the people wanting to come to a new country to assymilate to that countries code of conducts and standards. nobody wants someone to walk into their country and then try to live by their own set of morals and conduct. the people who tell others that we should be tolerant to the way they live is bullshit. they want to live where we built a country based on standards of living and societal norms, then they need to adopt those norms.
we all adjust how we conduct ourselves based on how others conduct themselves. if you treat someone with respect after they disrespect you, you might be doing it wrong.
not saying we can't have people migrate from the middle east and come here wanting a new life away from the societal norms of where they came from, the newer generation is moving farther away from their old societies extremes. but they still need to realize when they move to a new country, no matter where, there will be some people who just won't accept it. they just need to move on and live their life. That lady has an unfounded fear of nothing, well, except not being accepted right away.
