Reader comment on item: Enforce Islamic Law in Canada?

Submitted by Mary (United Kingdom), Oct 3, 2005 at 05:15

Your experiences in Canada are sadly similar to what is happening in the UK where I live. The very nature of our society is being undermined. It begins with small things like banning nativity plays and will end up as a roller coaster. The sight of Muslim women swathed in black robes walking three paces behind some swaggering man is pretty offensive to me but, hey, it's a free country. It's when my customs and heritage are banned or questioned because a timid official has caved in or pc leftie has decided it's "offensive" that ordinary people start to feel threatened and outraged. The ultra left don't much care who comes into our country, how they treat us and how they behave. It can all be trampled on and desecrated as far as they're concerned because they've decided that our great island and history is worthless and it seems the politicians and bureaucrats don't much care either.

Even our Queen who is supposed to be the Defender of the Faith (that is her official role apart from Queen of the Realm) is made to mouth politically correct platitudes. All this is feeding extremism both from far right wing Nazis and Muslim extremists. People who are tired of bland politicians and the Human Rights Industry selling their country down the river are veering towards the far right groups and Muslim extremists are running riot because they've never been told what the rules are and given any boundaries, rather like small, mischievous children. The UK has gone further down the path of pc multiculturalism than any other country in Europe and manages to produce the first suicide bombers in Western Europe by people with a British passport. Does that tell you something?
