    So do you purely go by feelings?
    those princes have accomplished most who paid little heed to keeping their promises, but who knew how to manipulate the minds of men craftily.

    Gotta be careful. I always thought a phobia was a fear of something. But dictionary definitions currently seem to include 'aversion' of something, and it can be rational.

    Since 1945 how often was the legitimacy of a general election result questioned and how many received 52% of the vote?

    I've seen some application forms for jobs from Muslim people and in general they are quite good at English and spelling.

    Here in Lombardy we are doing everything we can to prevent the spreading of Islam. We recently approved extremely tough construction laws, specifically written and aimed to prevent the rise of new mosques. We also banned burqas from public buildings (hospitals, city halls, public offices in general, etc). The regional junta is also cutting funding to those municipalities that support the construction of islamic places of worship. In my town we gathered enough signatures to make the Mayor change his mind, but it was too late - we voted the Northern League into office, and the project simply died out (thankfully).
