With your multi-national living experiences, what does this whole thing say about liberalism ( with respect to minorities) in Europe vs. America? A top down down imposed liberalism in Europe ( "European Court of Human Rights" for God's sake, I thought all courts were supposed to enforce human rights) versus loud lunatic conservative voices close to power in the US. But from my reading, I understand Muslim ghettos are a lot more common in Europe than in the US. And a European Muslim youth is a lot more likely to listen to a radical preacher and lose his mind than in the US (when was the last immigrant Muslim arrested on terror charges in the US, as compared to fairly frequent arrests in Europe?). Does it have something to do with the power of money and homogenization( I understand that is a "bad word" in this day and age) in the US?
