    • Mar 14 2013: What does rising Islamisation exactly mean and what effects will this have?
  • Mar 10 2013: Maybe the reality is we outsiders can help by being positive role models and by offering reasonable help if requested by those with problems. Sure doesn't sound like Iraq and Afghanistan have helped the locals although they have cost incredible amounts of money. So I don't have an answer except ZX suggests let them have their own fish and eat them. Sounds like the fisheries failure that caused the Vikings to develop a new business.
