Why Can`t We Integrate?

Why can`t we integrate? Why can`t we protect our Somali and islamic identity while remaining part of the wider community to which we had migrated? Why can`t we get far in our new environment? Do we know that if we do not integrate we shall face the music of segregation? We are already labeled as the backward people who only want to exploit the system by living on welfare. We are known to be religious extremists, khat traders and addicts. It is beyond dount that we are so few in the public, business and employment spaces of the countries we live in. Our children make little or virtually no progress at school according to studies published in the Swedish daily and weekly papers. One can say with all certainty that they are victims of a dysfunctional family and a disintegrated community.
