Response to Ban Islam

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: Islamic threat

Submitted by Claire (United States), Oct 3, 2007 at 13:38

As I write this, in Illinois, USA, a school board is deciding whether to ban Halloween and Christmas in the public schools altogether or just rename them to pacify angry Muslims that have recently settled in the neighborhood and now represent 30% of the school district.

Islam destroys other cultures in its path through intimidation and demanding political correctness for its own interests. In this same school district, the school has already stopped serving pork and Jello (because it is derived from pork), and Muslim students are allowed to fast and pray during school lunch periods.

In effect, Islam is already here, and Muslims have no respect for any other culture, demanding that their own practices be adopted by everyone else. Islamofascism is already eating away at Western culture, and the politically-correct, naive people of the US and Europe are just rolling over and allowing it to happen.

This has to stop. They are welcome in the US, but they are going to have to adapt to our culture and not be allowed to demand that we forfeit our culture and adopt theirs. It's probably too late--the fox is already inside the hen house.
