Muslims take offense to any religious sysmbols not their own

Reader comment on item: Away with Crusaders, Crucifixes, Crosses, and Christmas

I am saddened that the once Christian nation of the UK would change its symbols for a lot of immigrants who have shown by their actions that they do not like living under their laws (London train bombing, protests against British troops, etc.). I say, keep the symbols, since they represent the heritage and history of the land and ship the nay-sayers back to where-ever they came from. They chose to immigrate, let them live by the laws and customs of their adopted homelands.

But that would countermand all the Islamic propaganda that they have lived with since birth. For them, Islam is beyond reproach, criticism and change. It is perfect despite the horrors that it enacts on its behalf. It is perfect despite having been founded by one who would be arrested for murder, child abuse and other crimes anywhere else in the free world.

This is another example of the Islamic tactic that wages war on the west through using discrimination laws, which are the soft underbelly of our freedom. What was meant by those laws in principle is that people would not be prevented from living freely according to their conscience under common laws that protected them from religious, racial and sexual hatred. The irony is that Muslims take this too far and force the laws, and now symbols, to conform to their own hatreds.

I fear that the UK will become Britainistan in the near future unless the tide of anti-west Muslim immigration is stopped and all who oppose the dominant culture, born centuries ago by freedom-loving people, are sent back to their countries of origin.

May the west prevail.
Kaffir and proud.
