Islam is a belief system, not a race.
I was not trying to make it specifically about race, more about commonality / cohort.
Muslims don't integrate into Western civilization as a mass, unlike the groups you mentioned.
I will only say that I've heard very similar panics and worries about other groups like Hispanics and Asians in the US, and Jews in general. A couple generations ago it was Italians and Irish that everyone was afraid of. Sure, maybe some groups take longer to integrate, I can't discount that possibility. But to say that it simply can't happen to any significant degree, I think that is just thinking too short term. Just the other day I saw a story on Telemundo complaining that not enough Spanish is being spoken and taught to young hispanics at home. Assimilation happens over time whether those communities want it to happen or not. It's what happens when you're vastly outnumbered in a larger culture.
Orwell once said that pacifism against the Nazis is no better than fighting for them. This applies in this case. ISIS has declared war on us years ago.
I am not personally saying western civilization should just lie back and let ourselves be bombed or shot to death. To continue my earlier analogy, the police don't just cross someone off of a wanted list because it might be a bit difficult to apprehend them.
If I had to be rounded up and sent to interment camps simply based on my ethnic background so that they can weed out the scum in my community, I would gladly go.
You might change your tune later, depending on who was running such a camp.
I would do anything to get rid of this problem at this point. They make me look bad and have made it more difficult for me to get along with people. They have intimidated and murdered people for hundreds of years and need to either get with the times or get lost with history. Enough is enough.
I certainly can't argue against your own personal experience. I would say that as an outsider, most "Islamic" extremism appears to me to be thinly veiled political rhetoric, but phrased using religious rhetoric to manipulate their followers more easily. There's no doubt in my mind that, for example, Osama Bin Laden wanted to be a political powerhouse if his plans had gone better. Or when I hear clerics in Iraq trying to rile people up against another faction, it smells of a power grab rather than actual religious disagreement. So on some level, I guess you could be right, or at least that I agree with you that factionalism that results in violence is a huge problem in the Middle East, and that it has ripple effects in countries where refugees are resettled.
