Sobre os muçulmanos no Reino Unido
Muslim Musings on British Muslims:
Something is rotten among the state of British Muslims. There is the imminent terror plot to blow up planes at a massive scale. There was 7/7. There are British Muslims supporting Hizabollah (even as other Brits go to fight for Israel). There were British Muslims going off to fight in Iraq. There were British Muslims going off to Afghanistan (although British Muslims are also part of the British army). How did it happen that a bunch of university educated First World kids started seeing themselves as some sort of revolutionists? Many Brits, for some foolish reason, pin the blame on British foreign policy. Oh, if only our foreign policy did not mimic the American foreign policy, we would stop producing home grown terrorists, because they would have no reason to hate us. Wrong. Dead wrong.

Further, the European social model is different than the American such that social mobility is difficult, if not impossible. When I first arrived in American (Brooklyn) I saw there were numerous other Pakistani immigrants like me, a couple of whom I was friends with. None of us live in Brooklyn ghettoes anymore. Last I heard, one was a self-proclaimed “player” in Miami and the other moved away elsewhere. We Americans have a hard time understanding that parts of the First World are incapable of providing social mobility. Not only that, but Europeans do not seem lilkely to change, as the French protests in support of the right to stay lazy demonstrated.
