Every Person of Islamic decent who has been Westernized best speak up.
I second that. Islam is at a crossroad, not unlike where Judaism was in the first century... They reform or they die out.
I don't second the veiled threats of mass expulsion, if that's what it was ("Welcome mats can be removed").
They convert and live peacefully with us or they leave. There can be no compromise on this, we dont renounce our core values, and we dont turn a blind eye to violence. The end.

The European jews are feeling uncomfortable, and we have some Americans saying that they all should be allowed into the USA because they are victims. I am not seeing where asking the Muslim to follow the jews is going to be a winning argument, the final solution and all.
It was. We have just seen a deadly attack on western values in the West, and a demand that the Western values in Europe be watered down so as to not offend muslims. Bull. ****.
In other contexts this is patently false.
Oxford University Press bans sausages and pigs from children’s books in effort 'to avoid offence': Bizarre clampdown branded 'nonsensical political correctness'
Ban is apparently aimed at avoiding offence among Jews and Muslims
Publisher prohibits mentioning anything that 'could be perceived as pork'
Oxford wants authors to consider 'cultural differences and sensitivities'
There is only one possible reason and that is Political Correctness -- Western elites bending over backwards on behalf of Muslims and Islam in ways they never would for another religion.
Another ubiquitous example: Before 9/11, the phrase "Allahu Akbar" was translated as "Allah is great" [or "the greatest"). Since 9/11, it has been translated as "God is great."
This was deliberate. In 2004, the influential Associated Press Stylebook announced: "A new entry has been added to the AP Stylebook: Allah. The Muslim name for God. The word God should be used."
Now, there are perfectly valid reasons to translate "Allah" as "God." And there are valid reasons not to. Indeed, Malaysia, a country widely depicted as a moderate Muslim country, last year banned Christians from using the word "Allah" in Arabic translations of the Bible -- because, while all Muslims regard Allah as the God of the universe, many Muslims regard the name "Allah" as specifically Muslim.
Whatever theological side one takes, the fact remains that after 9/11 Allah became "God" in the Western world -- in order to essentially show how similar Islam is to Judaism and Christianity.
Always referring to Muhammad as "the Prophet Muhammad" and translating "Allah" as "God" are subtle examples of the Western media and intellectual bias in favor of Islam since 2001. Most examples of the bias are not subtle, but blatant and morally indefensible.
Take one from the Paris murders.
Why did the Muslim terrorists go to a Jewish grocery? This is not a riddle. We all know. But some in the media pretended they didn't. During the attack, a reporter for Sky News, one of the largest English-language news services in the world, said on Fox News: "Whether it was targeted specifically for its religious connotations it is difficult to know."
Is there one reader of this column who thought it "difficult to know" whether the Muslim terrorists targeted a Jewish grocery?
Why would someone presumably intelligent say something so obviously stupid?
In order to protect Islam.
France enjoys a weird freedom of speech. One can mock Muslims religion and culture but one can't mock Jewish religion and culture.
No wonder why Muslims are in deep and serious disagreement with such a kind freedom of speech.
“The Prophet said, ‘A Muslim has to listen to and obey the order of his
ruler whether he likes it or not.’” [There will never be a stable Islamic democracy.]
“Obey Allah and His Messenger; and do not dispute!”
“So obey Allah, and obey His Messenger (Muhammad).
