    one question

    Dear Teacher,

    I have difficulty understanding the last sentence. Would you please do me a favor?

    It seems WE give and THEY take. This does nothing for racial harmony. It just makes Muslims look mean-minded - which the vase majority are not.
    This country is very easy-going and accepting of its new citizens.
    [But pigs will fly before we put up with this kind of nonsense. ]

    Thanks a log.

    It means we will never tolerate this nonsense. 'When pigs fly' is an idiom for something we think will never happen.
