Muslim Activist in Ireland Says Irish Must Stop Making Jokes: Stop me if you've heard this one; Immigration without Assimilation Endangers Europe's Future

Muslim Activist in Ireland Says Irish Must Stop Making Jokes
Stop me if you've heard this one.
Okay, so Pat and Mike walk into a bar — or they try to, but the bar is closed and Pat and Mike are canceled. Welcome to the new Ireland!
Remember when immigrants were expected to assimilate? Those days are gone, and we all know that anyone who wants them back is a racist and a bigot. Today, the migrants dictate terms to the native people, who better fall in line or else. In Ireland, a Muslim activist wants the Irish to stop cracking wise. Why? Because it offends her, and we all know who is in charge now.
Ala Buisir grew up in Dublin and now focuses on photographic and film projects that (surprise, surprise!) call attention to racism, the suffering that Muslims supposedly underwent during the War on Terror, and discrimination that new arrivals in Ireland allegedly experience. Yes, Ala Buisir is a professional victim, someone who whines for a living, and why not? All over the West today, victimhood is a growth industry.
Buisir’s latest target is Ireland’s legendary humor. Even though she grew up in Ireland, start talking about a couple of leprechauns walking into a bar and ordering a Guinness, and you’re sure to raise her hackles.
Just recently, video surfaced on X of Buisir complaining on RTÉ, Ireland’s NPR, about the Irish tendency to crack wise: “A person looks at you, and then he— they’ll give you that, some stereotype joke. And you’ll be like, sh— like it’s not a joke, it’s something serious that you shouldn’t be saying and everything. But then you’ll get, ‘Ah, but we’re Irish, we like to joke around, we like to have, make a fun— a laugh out of something.’ And that needs to change within the Irish community. As much as I am Irish, that’s the one thing that, it kind of annoys me.”

The solution for Ala Buisir is obvious: bid adieu to Pat and Mike, pack your bags, and get on the first flight to Lahore. There she will find innumerable people who, although they’re Sunni and he was Shi’ite, believe strongly in what the Ayatollah Khomeini memorably articulated: “Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” --->READ MORE HERE
Immigration without Assimilation Endangers Europe's Future:
The urban riots that engulfed France in the summer of 2023, after a teenager of North African descent was shot dead by police during a traffic stop, showcased the decades-long failure of the French state to adequately integrate millions of immigrants — particularly those with origins in Africa and the Middle East.
Nahel Merzouk, a 17-year-old French citizen of Algerian and Moroccan origin, was killed when he resisted arrest and tried to run over a police officer with his car in Nanterre, a suburb of Paris. The 38-year-old officer, who said he acted in self-defense, was subsequently arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter. The French judiciary will determine his fate.
Merzouk's killing, which was recorded on a cellphone video and widely shared across social media, unleashed eight days of extreme violence that left a trail of destruction not seen in France since similar migrant-related riots in late 2005. Police said they were "at war" with "savage hordes" of angry rioters with an "us-versus-them" mentality who destroyed police stations, schools, shops, banks, town halls and courthouses, and torched thousands of cars. The riots, which caused more than one billion euros in damage, were contained only after the French government deployed 45,000 security forces, who arrested more than 4,000 rioters.
Many media outlets and political commentators were quick to attribute Merzouk's death and the subsequent riots to police brutality and "systemic racism" within French law enforcement. French President Emanuel Macron, apparently seeking to quell the violence, condemned the shooting as "inexplicable" and "inexcusable" and called for justice to be served. French police, he said, are required to do their job "within an ethical framework that must be respected."
Even if the riots were triggered by police misconduct, the hate-induced arson, looting, and vandalism on such an unprecedented scale point to a much larger failure of governance in France — especially regarding immigration and integration. For at least 50 years, successive governments have been unable or unwilling to limit mass migration or to properly integrate immigrants into French society.
Myth of Return
To better understand the immigration crisis gripping France and other European countries, it helps to distinguish between at least two different categories of non-Western immigrants.
On the one hand, there are the recent newcomers — sometimes loosely referred to as first generation immigrants. During the past two decades, millions of migrants from the Middle East and South Asia, as well as from North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa, have reached European shores. The migration flows accelerated in 2015, when German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the immigration floodgates and allowed more than one-and-a-half million refugees and asylum seekers from Syria and elsewhere into countries of the European Union.
On the other hand, there are the second- and third-generation immigrants who are European-born children and grandchildren of the so-called "guest workers" who arrived in Europe in the 1950s and 1960s when, in the aftermath of the Second World War, countries such as France and Germany faced labor shortages. The assumption was that the guest workers would eventually return to their countries of origin. Instead, in what is sometimes referred to as the myth of return, they stayed in Europe, became permanent residents, and set into motion endless chain migration.
In France and Germany, non-Western guest workers hailed mainly from Turkey and from former French colonies in North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Many guest workers lived on the margins of the host society and never properly integrated. In France, millions settled in so-called banlieues, working-class suburbs on the outskirts of large cities.
Over time, the banlieues turned into blighted and poverty-stricken slums with high rates of unemployment and runaway lawlessness. For the original guest workers, moving to the banlieues was a step up the economic and social ladder in comparison to the conditions they left behind in their homelands. For their children and grandchildren, living there — where youth unemployment commonly is above 50 percent — generally is a ticket to permanent despair. --->READ MORE HERE
