I'm not sure how many Americans know that Belgium and Holland are different countries.

Belgium is where the Dutch live, and Holland is where the Holls live. Sweden is the Netherlandians.

What's totally unfair is how they get to enter like six separate teams in the World Cup when we only get one.

Sure - it's how I feel when I wake up with a head cold.

 

Seriously, though, it's the adjective used to describe people from the Flanders region in Belgium. They're one of two main ethnic groups in Belgium, the other being the Walloons.

 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below...

Most engineering fields have 100% employment rates and are screaming for qualified workers, which they are not. So it might sound great that they all hold uni degrees, but they aren't worth the paper they are written on.

I meant that are probably less likely to commited to religion. There's a statistical correlation between level of education and commitment to relgion, at least in western countries. Also more likely to get a job. I'd expect lowly educated person with no job to cause more problems on average and be less likely to integrate. You are probably right that our universities have higher level.

It's from a Judy Blume book.

"Walloons" sounds almost badass until you remember ithey're a kind of Belgian.

More details about the "sexual emergency" child rape in the news.

The victim's mother, Dunja, a refugee from Serbia, said she regrets telling her children that migrants need help
She said his defence as 'just monstrous' and that he should be deported

I want to know if he'll be deported.

Push for open borders and label anyone who disagrees a bigot. What's happening in parts of Europe could never happen here.

No, i'm calling their immigration politics weak, they let salafists from north africa setup shop in the 90's, which they are now paying for.

If their education isn't worth an elementary education, they aren't better of than a sheepherder and most of the members of hizb ut tahrir hold degrees, paid for by the tax payers of the country they despise.

The HuffPo crowd views the West as racist and evil, and therefore is warmed by the prospect of the colonial evil capitalist West being eaten away from the inside, and raped by those they identify as the "brown people."

Trump and Cruz are fighting for Western values. Democrats and their Greek Communist financiers are fighting for the fall of the West.

I don't think this is correct for Arabs. I remember reading that 9/11 terrorists (at least two) were educated in Europe. One was PhD another Engineer. Some paper interviewed professor from German Univ. who taught one of the hijackers and he remembered him as one of the best students he had. So he was basically German educated engineer who graduated at the top of his class and then flew plane into WTC.
Anecdotally, ahlams that were trying to firebomb airport in Scotland were licensed/practicing physicians.
I doubt there is a correlation between Univ ed. and religiosity. Just look at USA.
The rabbit hole goes much, much deeper than: If we only educate them and give them good jobs they'll be just like us: secular, amicable, pluralists.
There is a deeper reason why some parts of the world are the heart of darkness, discovering the reason most likely is as fruitless as educating them.
