Muslims whine and threaten

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam

Submitted by Susan (United States), Dec 9, 2009 at 14:11

I used to be stunned at what I viewed as abject hypocrisy on the part of Muslims but now I realize it's not hypocrisy at all; it is supremacy. There is no reciprocity in Islamic countries; non-Muslims are dhimmis, second class citizens who are not permitted to build new houses of worship or hold public office. They are often viciously persecuted by the larger Muslim population, sometimes tortured and murdered by maniacal mobs of fanatical Muslims. Yet Muslims migrate to the West and expect every aspect of their incongruous religion to be tolerated, and their unreasonable demands to be met. When their fellow Muslims plot terrorist attacks, commit honor killings and genital mutilations, or go on wild, murderous rampages, we're supposed to apologise to the "Islamic community" for being suspicious of Muslims. We're expected to embrace diversity and multiculturalism and ignore the fact that Muslims do not assimilate into our societies and are here solely to exploit our freedoms and opportunities while they work to destroy them.

Muslims see nothing wrong with this scenario because of their unarguable certitude that Islam is the only legitimate religion; all other religions are corrupted; Muslims are the "best of people"; and nobody has the right to restrict or inhibit the spread of Islam or its ostentatious symbols. It is inconceivable to these megalomaniacs that they are not entitled to impose their alien culture and religion on their host nations. They do not see themselves as humble immigrants but as conquering colonists who are obligated by the tenets of Islam to impose their religion and Islamic law on the world. They keep a low profile until their numbers are large enough to make a political impact. Then they threaten, intimidate, and portray themselves as victims. They reduce politicians to cowering appeasers with theats of riots and civil unrest. They are despicable bullies and they are becoming more despised every day. Non-Muslims could never migrate to Islamic countries and demand the concessions that Muslims demand of us. They would either be murdered by the locals or tried and convicted of subversion or blasphemy. Multiculturalism and political correctness are scourges on humanity, and ironically, neither is tolerated in Islamic countries.
