Europeans may be getting tired of accommodating sharia

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats

Submitted by Leslie (United States), Jul 15, 2016 at 13:28

Just yesterday, I met a Swedish tourist here in NYC. After I gave her directions and while we were waiting for the bus, we started chatting. I would never bring up such a potentially awkward topic with a stranger, but within minutes, she was telling me how happy she is to see no niqabs here. She went on to recount how migrants are overwhelming her country -- 9 million citizens, and it will soon be 1 million Muslim immigrants, most of whom do not integrate and are trying to impose their customs and practices on Sweden.

One thing she told me was that women in niqabs can testify in Swedish court, even though there is no way to ascertain who is actually in there. She is furious with the politicians who keep bringing in the Syrians, and others who sneak in with them. She said that many people in her city (Stockholm) are scared and angry.

It's not for nothing that the Sweden Democrats have doubled their vote every four years since 1998.
