I'd like to address your two pieces of evidence. Both, make the claim that Muslims (specifically immigrant Muslims) are the instigators of violent crime, namely rape. But what you don't show the context to this entire situation.

Many of these immigrants are refugees coming from war-torn areas and are doing this to rebuild their lives. The reason behind high violence rates isn't if they're Muslim. Many more factors need to be thought of before making this conclusion. Education level, income, etc. shouldn't be ignored. A native Swede from the same low-income demographic is just as likely to commit the same crimes. Citing a document by the Swedish government, the point you may make of immigrant-inflicted crime affecting citizens is true. But the crime rate is roughly the same as in 2005, several years before the latest Muslim refugee crisis: 13%. I understand the crime rate has increased in other places, such as Germany, but barring more immigrants would just put astronomical strain on foreign aid, and may even just increase violence there and intolerance towards immigrants. Europe could even use the new influx of immigrants to benefit economically.

Moving on, but once again referring to your previous "argument" again, how are two videos supposed to justify "banning" a religion. A KKK cross-burning video won't make us "ban" Christianity and one on Extremist Jews won't make us "ban" Judaism. The logistics of "banning" a religion wouldn't make sense, anyway. Would "banning" a religion be ethnic cleansing? Or would we need to deny giving a better future to people and discriminate them simply because of their religion and not take anything else into consideration? No matter what it may mean, it violates the foundation many nations have been built off of.

Your argument and this debate itself has had very little thought put into it, so please look at it with an open mind and look at some evidence-based research. Thank you.
