Look to Europe


Matt Kettmann has written a lengthy piece including a front-page family portrait with obvious support for raising a mosque in Goleta.

I am an aware citizen who is concerned about Islamic settlement in the United States and the effect that it is having on our culture. I use the term settlement because it appears that assimilation is not the goal. I encourage you to research and publish an article of what is happening in Europe and in parts of the U.S. like Michigan to see what impact Islamic settlement is having on our freedoms and laws in this country and other western cultures. Is that what we as Americans want for our community and our country?—Jan Kreider
