Do European states still insist that wine is served?

Reader comment on item: The West Stands Up for Its Customs

These examples don't show a trend. These acts of rebellion don't necessarily signify that the tide has changed. It might even be the opposite. As the Islamization of Europe continues, it breaks new ground and there'll be pockets of opposition. Is this opposition temporary? It's difficult to tell. The real question is this: will all significant political parties in Europe fight to get the muslim vote or will there be major parties who will allow their rivals to cater to the Muslim voters and will attract those who are against this (new?) form of political correctness.

Right now, if we look at Britain, the Conservatives and Labour both try to ally themselves with what's seen as the Muslim vote - which could be termed "moderate extremists":) To go against them would also mean going against the Media and no major party dares to do that. This trend, should it continue, would mean the Islamists will always win and their dominance will only grow.

You are right that these are isolated instances, not part of a campaign or trend.
