Your Egalitarian Views are Crumbling

There are good reasons why the native populous of Europe and other countries are struggling with the societal upheaval occasioned upon them by their Muslim imports. How each country responds is instructive to the values of the society. Reality is putting pressure on those values.

France had difficulty in summoning courage to put down the recent riots. But, they have no problem banning an Islamic head covering in schools. Their cowardice made them ban the display of all articles of faith when the real target is Muslims. And, free speech took a hit when they fired the publisher of the Jihad cartoons.

Denmark is considering banning the wearing of the burka in public.

Australia seems to feel that if Muslims want to practice Sharia Law, they can leave Australia.

In 2003, Canada was preparing to allow Sharia Law to be administered to Canadian Muslims. In 2005, the Sharia law move was quashed in Canada.

Jed Babbin wrote in the American Spectator about England giving up their freedom of speech as new laws react to the threat of Islamic terror. Hat Tip The Barnyard.

And, in the U.S. there was the battle over the now passed Patriot Act.

It is only the beginning of changes to come as the world struggles to come to grips with the reality that Islam has declared war on all non-Muslims. Societies are struggling to maintain their egalitarian views, but those ideals have already begun to crumble in the face of reality.

Update: See the Agora piece on EU Ministers “Considering” Arab Demands.

Correction: A reader pointed out that it is the Netherlands, not Denmark, that is considering the banning of the burqa. That is correct. See an additional article here.

Correction: Please note in the last paragraph the sentence "...reality that Islam has declared war on all non-Muslims." should read Islamofascists and not Islam.
