Re: Go that woman !
She's the adult in that conflict.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

She joined in when another woman yelled "Islamophobe" so she shares that attitude? Yet she's not wearing a hijab. She was born in the UK, identifies with the UK, she's not a recent immigrant. What is she representing? What are the protestors representing?

What Do Europeans Think About Muslim Immigration? According to research done last year by the Chatham House, most are not very keen on it, to put it mildly. In fact, most want a complete ban.
Chatham House asked 10,000 people (1000 from each of 10 EU countries) what they thought of the proposition:

quote:

All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.

Overall, across all 10 of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped, 25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed.

Not all the inhabitants of mainly Muslim countries are Muslims. My late wife was a Malaysian, but she was a Christian. Also, there are about 170 million Muslims in India, which is not a mainly Muslim country; what do the people who want a ban intend to do about Indian immigration?

Indeed. Even Saudi Arabia, which reserves citizenship exclusively for Muslims, has non-Muslim inhabitants, and all the rest (I think) have non-Muslim citizens.

I know both Malaysia and India personally, but I can't help you with your question, because I don't know whether most of that 55% would want to slap the ban on all Indians, or discriminate on religious grounds. I suspect that a lot of them want heavy restrictions on immigration anyway, regardless of who it is and where its from, and some research supports that. For example, in a survey in 2013, 70% of French thought there were too many foreigners in their country.
