So immigrants come to the developed countries and continue reproducing at alarming rates. Out producing the natives basically. Developed countries are starting to realize that they can't take on the world's people. They have to teach them to help themselves in their own lands...for the most part anyways.
> interesting is that the "reproduction" of immigrants declines astonshingly swiftly
> and please abstain from the rest .... Right now, Western media is happily applauding the bad-mouthing of a state-leader (Mr Mubarak) who achieved more than most in regard to development, achieved more than most in regard to reducing population growth . Sure, the old general was NOT a democrat, and there was corruption around him. Western media even goes as far as describing really democratically elected Algeria President Bouteflika as "dictator". NO NO NO, "developed countries" are not starting to realize anything, for the most part anyways

That's easy for you to say, sitting up in Switzerland. What is Sharia law doing in Britain anyways regardless of how much or how little? This is one reason why the Brits are getting pissed...they feel the immigrants have more rights than they do. Go back and live in Britain for a few years and then tell me what you think...
It's not that simple but nice try...
[/QUOTE]

What is Sharia law doing in Britain ? NOTHING ! The Brits have no reason to be "getting pissed" but all reason in the world not to allow such notions. As far as I know there is still a "native" British majority in Britain who can say what the law in the UK is to be. The immigrants to Britain have the rights approved by the Brits. Being a clear majority, the "native" Brits can determine what rights locals and immigrants have. And THIS in fact IS very simple.

So that you want to say that a certain specific group is now majority in the U.K. ? I mean, to see that the U.K. of course HAS problems, is fairly easy. But whatever it may look like, their problems are not unsolveable. Whether the Brits in Britain are able to overcome is something I cannot judge.

Back to topic. What I believe is that the right to vote in municipal affairs would be perfectly alright here in the Canton of Zurich. What I am certain about however is that the proposal will be rejected. And that has nothing to do with Sharia right but with the general Swiss belief that only citizenship gives the right to vote. And, Yes Sir, THIS really IS simple

I agree, I'm just pointing out what's happening NOW...of course they're not unsolvable. But what they may have to do to solve them "ain't gonna be pretty."
