Nigeria is divided half/half between Islam and Christianity with animist undertones.<quoted text>
Agreed. The problem as you pointed out isn't the immigrants from other European nations in general. It's the Muslims. Most Poles who land there are there for one of two things (as a lot of foreigners here): work or to establish citizenship. I just found the number of Pakistanis and Nigerians who settle there interesting. Islam is a large component of many Nigerians' cultural identity. I don't know how aware of this a lot of folks are--lots seem to think it's a benign issue because it was once a British colony. It was a side issue with some of the discussions I'd seen fly past my email, but interesting enough to check it out.
The "Empire Guilt" is a major reason why it's proven hard to reject this immigration.
