Similarity of Tolerance of Slavery with Tolerance of Polygamy

Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems

In the interest of comity, states of the United States prior to 1860 in which slavery was outlawed, allowed slave owners to bring their slaves with them when visit ing those Free States. The slaves were not freed when they stepped on free soil; their bonds were solidified. The War of the Sothron Rebellion was initiated by the rebels to maintain their social and economic organization, i. e., to keep and spread slavery. The Islamo-fascist jihadist terrorists seem to be practicing the same strategy. When the imams changed their opinions and allowed Muslims to emigrate to any land where they could safely practice their religion and enforce their religious laws, they opened the gates for the Islamization of the Earth.

Throughout the history of Islam, the faithful were not allowed to live anywhere but in Muslim lands. With the spread of Islam worldwide, they can now live and practice their religion everywhere. But like the slaveholders, they will soon reach the insistence point that it is insufficient that their religious practices are just tolerated, but Sharia law must be engrossed as the Law of the Land throughout the world. The Muslims will not rest until Sharia is universal. What does history teach about comity and appeasement? Tours and Vienna must be revisited in relation to Gettsburg and Richmond.
