(Written in Kaleva, a local newspaper, a >few days ago) That's far too simple. Typical anti-Western drivel. Islam and the West had been clashing for centuries before anybody dreamed up colonialism. But I'm not anti-Islamic. There's an Islamic world and a Western world, and they should be kept as separate as is necessary for maintaining peace. There are two problems: Western meddling in the Islamic world, and Islamic immigration into the Western world, both of which should be stopped ASAP.
