I live in the Bronx, which has a huge number of immigrants from Bangladesh. I shop at their stores — much easier, and less expensive, to get Indian rice and spices than subwaying to Manhattan. Never have I been treated with anything other than the utmost respect — and I wear my yarmulke all the time so they know that I am Jewish. They add to our community and I am glad that they are here! I totally reject the attitude displayed in this article.
Why is a man of your intelligence arguing with a guy who makes Oliver Wagshall's runny dog feces look good in comparison?

Be nice when you are in the minority. Be indifferent when there is parity. Be arrogant and aggressive when you are in the majority. Most immigrants want the same thing. It is the religious leaders you have to watch — those who say go blow yourself up, and yet are themselves in their seventies and eighties.
Maybe you ahould research and speak about the problem plaguing the Jewish community- pedophiles and their abuse on the children of your community. Or about that Jewish guy who kidnapped and dismembered the boy…..he lived in the exact neighborhood you speak of. Stop the cycle of hate and learn to coexist.

Beheading is not a traditional way of Bangladesh. It has nothing to Bangladeshi culture or his religion. He is crazy, and he did something what crazy people would do. Just like those serial killers, or KKK, or those mass school shooters, or those pedophiles, or just like those war-head politicians. Now I'm not saying these are all American traditions, or Jewish/Israeli traditions, am I?
But overall, you have some good points, and I totally agree with them.
Mimi Jotil Munchkin I agree with the facts that some of us have the mentality of not blending in. Some of us have the mentality of looking at other Americans as infidel. Some of us have little respect for other cultures or lifestyles. But those ignorant 'some' are common in all groups of people. It's not wise to use them as an example to judge the whole group.
