Islamic Immigration is Not Known to be Compatible with the Continuity of the Advancement of Civilization
The burden of proof in this case is clearly on those who approve significant immigration of the Islamic kind, since they advocate a great change in what exists and has existed. Those doubting that assimilation can ever be all one way, when large numbers are involved, have the defensible position. Those who imply that Islam is so backward and weak that it cannot hold the loyalty of its own, who have moved to more advanced societies, have a position so weak that it cannot even be explicitly stated. Therefore, the conclusion should be drawn, that such large immigration must make the more advanced more like the more backward, and there will be less progress than otherwise would have been allowed-for, with a huge opening for an actual backsliding, where past improvements of knowledge and technique are lost.
