I never meant to imply that extremist Islam exists only in Canada

Reader comment on item: Islamic Law at Belmont U
in response to reader comment: Why the Dhimmi in Canada capitulate...

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Apr 27, 2006 at 16:07

I believe the purveyors of militant Islam exist in every major Western capital -- some nations are worse off than others -- Britain is one of the worst...(I've read that Britain has over 700 madrasses). Canada has not quite reached that state yet -- but I see Canada following in Britain's footsteps...(that is, Canada is making more and more concessions to Islam, more and more capitulations, with fewer and fewer freedoms -- at this rate Western-style liberties will be relegated to some "golden era.")

I am not happy with this trend; and, other than curtailing immigration, I don't see a solution. Education does not seem to work...There are any number of Islamists with PhDs who advocate the stoning to death of adultress women...they fully subscribe to their 7th century legal code...I also fail to see how on earth they can be a "contribution" to Canadian society. Just what precisely would the contribution be? Bringing back stoning to death along with flogging? Dressing women in black bags? Jew hatred? Racist genocide? Polygamy? Or how about some domestic slavery and concubines?
