Shock! The Counterjihad has been saying it all along, that the multiculturalists’ plan to use mass immigration to enrich European society with a non-inclusive, monoculture like Islam, was, and still is, incredibly stupid. After all the trying, Singapore now admits it can’t bring about the impossible. KGS
Singapore’s Lee: we can’t integrate Muslims
Andrew Bolt: Singapore’s presiding genius, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, on the failure of Muslim integration:
In the book, Mr Lee, when asked to assess the progress of multiracialism in Singapore, said: “I have to speak candidly to be of value, but I do not wish to offend the Muslim community.
“I think we were progressing very nicely until the surge of Islam came, and if you asked me for my observations, the other communities have easier integration – friends, intermarriages and so on, Indians with Chinese, Chinese with Indians – than Muslims. That’s the result of the surge from the Arab states.”
He added: ”I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam.”
He also said: “I think the Muslims socially do not cause any trouble, but they are distinct and separate.”
Not endorsing, not rejecting. Just noting. More here from the launch of the book: Lee Kuan Yew: Hard Truths to Keep Singapore Going.
