Trevor Phillips; right and wrong

Trevor Phillips, former head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, has stated that Muslims are different from, presumably, those in the West. Well! in that he is absolutely correct. He goes on to assert that it is disrespectful of the West to expect them to change the way they behave in conformity to our way of life. In this he is absolutely wrong. Surely if one moves into a new community, it is more disrespectful not to adopt the ways, accept the norms, of the host population. In fact it is outrageous that Muslims expect the host nation to fall in with their beliefs and laws, especially when the only evidence they have for its validity is widespread bloodshed and misery visited, in the main, on women and children.
