The British ambassador to Saudi Arabia performed the Hajj pilgrimage earlier this week after converting to Islam. Simon Collis, 60, has served as ambassador since 2015. He made the holy trip with his wife Huda Mujarkech and revealed on Twitter that he had converted to Islam shortly before marrying his wife. "In short, I converted to Islam after spending 30 years in Muslim societies and before getting married to Huda," Collis tweeted. He has held several posts with the Foreign Office, including as ambassador to Iraq, Syria and Qatar.

A lot of people convert to a spouse's religion.

The U.K., like the U.S., is a welcoming place for many cultures.

I wanted to marry this one girl but she couldn't bring herself to convert to Frisbeetarianism.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

"When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you."

― Winston S. Churchill

The first two quotes that came to mind.

That's an odd thing to think X.
Unless... Are you Muslim, like 82-97% of the victims of Muslim terror attacks over the past five years?

#5 applies to Trump better.
Knowingly spreading birther lies for years after proof was given. Trump is a cowardly lying ---------- traitor.

Oh?

Anyway, Canada is light-years ahead of the US when it comes to acceptance of multiculturalism. And even there, they have to be fooled.

www.bbc.com

In a University of Toronto study, titled Why do some employers prefer to interview Matthew, but not Samir?, researchers sent out CVs to employers in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. They found applicants with Chinese, Indian or Pakistani names were 40% less likely to get an interview call than those with European names. This, despite the nation being known for celebrating diversity and multiculturalism and being known globally for a more favourable immigration policy than most of its peers in the developed world.
===============

In short being white euro/christian .. at least on paper... helps. Looking white (even though you might be Asian) helps even more.

Also helping is the fact that people in US/UK are damn easy to fool. "Johnny Tremain".. {wink wink}
