Clearly when you are faced with a situation where the second largest religion on earth is trying to gain a solid foothold in your country the best way to handle it is to roll over and show your belly and say welcome!

It is one good gesture after another towards the muslims, extenion of the school, writing off their bills and helping them during their conflits. How do they repay us by letting boat loads of people freely leave their shores.

If such collaboration and respect towards each other as showed here in Malta by Muslims and non ones is copied by others there would be less strife and ill feelings. Also there would not be fertile ground for fundamentalism and fanaticism.
It is good to note that respect to the country's Constitution and Laws is shown by irrespective of one's own colour and creed.
Malta is a shining example of tolerance, we have our differences but do not solve them by street politics.
REST of the world, look and learn.
