CAN YOU NOT SEE ???

Can you not see?
This is only a start and has nothing to do with observing Islam, which condemns drinking not carrying alcohol!
refusing to transport women not accompanied by men?
Has not America fought for years to EXTEND its freedom of thought?
The Muslim taxi cabs' gripe is not just that -it is a foot in the door to changing slowly all of America's laws.
DO NOT BE NAIVE!!
Why go back to the middle ages with the mentality of the Middle Ages of this religion?
Should one respect a religion and its practices that go against everything another society has fought -over hundreds of years - to combat, to change - notably superstition, disregard of science and logic and also blatant mocking, intolerance and condemnation (and worse in Arab countries) of those who do not believe in the same god??
I am American and am seeing Muslims shy their way into every sector of French society where I live, trying to change our European customs to fit their religious laws.
----Women refuse to see male doctors in emergency rooms, a socialist mayor in Lille permitted women to have a segregated time to swim in a public pool., manipulated young Muslim girls are still every September trying to come to class in France with a headscarf --- which will become a burqa if they are allowed this!
Look at what is happening in England!
Luckily, for the moment, people in France seem to be slowly becoming aware of this gradual brain-washing agenda of the imams in the Muslim communities.
But I fear it will soon be too late to react against this dark age mentality and religious superstitions.
AMERICA AND EUROPE HAVE GONE THROUGH THEIR ENLIGHTENMENT AND DO NOT NEED TO RECONSIDER DARK AGE BELIEFS!!
