How do Europeans view the immigration of muslims/africans?
Just wondering if anyone from europe who has a first person view could tell me how europeans typically view immigration by muslims and or africans into their countries?
Im looking for different viewpoints
ex. Some europeans believe ____, while others believe____.
I can only answer you how I see it. I'm from Belgium by the way.
Immigration goes back countless years. In the sixties Belgium was looking for workers for it's industry and coal mines. A lot of Morrocan, Italian and Turkish people came to our country in search of a better life. When the mines closed a lot of these people were left in poverty.
Nowadays, immigrants that are coming in to our country are fleeing from wars and terrorism.
I've always been pro-immigration. You can't blame people for trying to find a better life for their children. I often ask myself "What would I do?".
However, I also believe in regulations and laws and I don't think we should open the gates for everybody.
People are often afraid of things they don't know or understand. I have a lot of muslim collegaes, and I consider many of them my friends. Our beliefs are different but when we talk about it (and we talked about it more the last couple of weeks, with all the terror concerns), we understand that both our religions are based on respect, charity and peace. Extremists can be found in any religion.
We shouldn't forget they also add value to our society. A lot of first-generation immigrants and their children, set up their own businesses. Some are small, other large and sometimes even providing employment for Belgians.
"f.. off home!", sorry if that's blunt but does highlight the strength of opinion. from every-one I come across. it is viewed as an invasion, with stupid eu laws at the route of it making uk powerless to defend her borders. many if not all I speak to at least believe that the great has gone out of Britain, and we were a stronger country without Europe -and American influences for that matter.
Thanks for your hub!

I have seen a lot of posts made of late against the so-called illegal immigrants from south of the border. I have also heard a lot of smack about how we should be helping our "wonderful veterans" instead. Really?Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I am one of those wonderful veterans. (1974-1981) I am a...

Family separation is a big new political talking point , Some family separations are permanent however . Now Molly Tibbetts was separated permanently from her family , I wonder when this new phenomena of "selective outrage" will actually be for a good cause?

Is it racist to have a concern about immigration?A few of our left wing buddies start shouting about people being a racist when they show a concern about the levels of immigration. Is immigration a question of race or a question of numbers?

I didn't know whether to put this question in religion or politics; so, if it is in the wrong category, I apologize. I've read a lot of comments indicating that Europeans consider Americans somewhat behind on the religioius curve. Our country is too religious. We are over run by and bogged...

The Immigration issue will have to be confronted sooner or later.The millions of illegals living in the country today will not be deported.Will the Republican party double down on its current image as a party of xenophobes and racists?
