Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The question is whether the alienation is permanent (and caused by their being Muslim), or is linked to the fact that they are simply the last wave of immigrants and will have been absorbed in a couple of generations, just like the Poles, the Italians and the Portuguese, to name only a few, have.
