After Seattle: Why have Muslim immigrants?

The MSM is anxiously parroting that Naveed Afzal Haq, who reportedly announced Friday’s Seattle atrocity with the memorable words

“I’m a Muslim American; I’m angry at Israel” (Muslim charged in Seattle Jewish slaying By Daisuke Wakabayashi Reuters July 29 2006)

is a U.S. citizen. However, it is a pretty safe bet his ancestors did not come over on the Mayflower. A more enterprising source (scroll down) suggests Pakistani connections .

A great deal could be said about this event, and the circumstances which gave rise to it. The VDARE.COM question, however, is:

Given the facts of the Middle East situation, and given the nature of the American involvement, is it wise or prudent to have significant Muslim immigration?

Poor Steve Steinlight tried to raise this question five years ago (triangulating against VDARE.COM in the process). His reward has been obscurity. But it remains a salient and valid question.
