All over the world the temperatures are getting hotter, and the there seems no end to it. In Europe the weather is climbing, and it will rise in August. When winter comes there will be cold and snow everywhere and the we will be up to our eyeballs in snow.

The weather is changing and I predict it will the heat will be higher next year. People are dying from the heat all over the world and it is getting worse. In winter there will be many more deaths as the cold grips certain countries.

The number of cars on the roads is getting to be bigger and bigger and we have to stop this. These cars are effecting the weather and we have to reduce the cars on the roads. Some people have four cars for the sons and daughters, and this is effecting the traffic on the road. This has to stop.

In twenty years time we will have electric cars on the road, but that is a long time away. In the meantime the pollution is getting worse by the minute, and we will be suffering with the congestion of the atmosphere. Already there is contamination in the air and people breath it in. We have already seen many people die from lung cancer and this will get worse.

I am glad I am seventy-five and I will maybe see eighty before I die, but the young folk will suffer in the long run. We have to do something about it by reducing the cars on the roads.

Trouble In Paradise

When you look at the world it is a paradise compared with the planets that surround us. But it is getting less and less when you consider the world and all its problems. People are protesting around the world for they want a good government. We also have wars with terrorists who want to make the world their own. They wish to rule countries with their own savagery like Islamic State, and who would want that?

In many nations, the western ones in particular, people couldn’t care less about the savagery that is taking over in other countries. Hunger and disease are mounting in places like Africa and the Middle East, but who cares as it does not effect us in the western nations. It is time everyone worked together to stop this, and by that I mean the people, and the governments.

images (1)

We are turning our world into a disaster zone by the petty bickering of governments and the rampant destruction caused by terrorists. Millions of people in Africa are on the verge of death by a shortage of food as the temperature rises around the world. The temperatures around the world are rising as we pollute the atmosphere, and huge parts of countries around the world are not able to grow crops to feed the people.

images

When I was young the world lived in peace for the greater part, but today we see wars going on around the world and millions starving through lack of food. Some nations are helping the poor but it is not enough. We have multi-billionaires who hide their money in off-shore bank accounts, but they do nothing to help the starving people of African nations and around the world. They have so much money that they couldn’t spend it in their lifetime. It is time these people made use of their ill-gotten gains by helping others.

The pollution of our atmosphere is becoming more and more as we drive around in vehicles that will eventually see the end of mankind on this planet.

I have lived for 75 years and I have seen the atmosphere getting so clogged with dangerous gases from cars and diesel engines. More and more people are suffering from diseases caused by this pollution, and unless something is done about it we will all be wearing gas masks when we go outside. It is time for the governments of the world to do something about it.

Currently there are plans to make electric cars the norm, but this will take years and years as people will not want to get rid of their cars and buy electric vehicles for they are too expensive. What will happen when we all drive around in electric cars?

images (1)

There will be a shortage of electricity, and power stations will not be able to keep up with the demand. It is an impossible situation unless we start building more and more power stations to provide the demand. What we don’t know is the contamination of the atmosphere when everyone starts driving electric cars. Even if these cars do not destroy the atmosphere it will take years and years for the atmospheric contamination to dissipate.

You may think this is all a load of bunkum, but in years to come you will see that it is true as the number of humans of this planet get less and less. People are already dying from atmospheric contamination like cancer, but if we do not do something about it, it will get worse.

images (2)

When I was young people lived to a ripe old age, but today, and at some time in the future the lifespan of people will get less and less. I am glad I am old, for I do not want to see the atmosphere so contaminated that it will be impossible to have a full life.

Our young people, and babies, will have a hard life ahead of them if we do not do something about the way we live now. But there again, maybe we will all cease to exist if a nuclear war breaks out.

Land Clearing And Pollution

Posted in Brazil, Britain, Children, Environment, European Union, Health, Human Rights, Modern World, News, Pacific with tags , , , , on 12/12/2017 by floroy1942

All across the world trees are being cut down at a fantastic rate and it will never end. In the Amazon, and all across the world, the forests are being decimated as mankind ignores the fact that we rely on trees for oxygen to breathe. The oceans of the world also give us the essential oxygen, but they are so polluted that we can no longer rely on them.

Huge swathes of the Amazon have disappeared due to farmers wanting more land for their cattle, and to grow crops. In the Far East large areas of forest have disappeared completely for the purpose of getting more farming land. If this continues we will be starved of oxygen within decades.

We are polluting the atmosphere with more than a billion vehicles on our roads and and they increase year by year, and soon we will have no clean air left the breathe. When you look at the traffic jams around the world you see that most cars have only the driver and no-one else. Very few have more than one occupant. Perhaps we should introduce pick-up points where drivers can travel with someone else instead of all taking their own cars to work. It was tried many years ago but failed.

Electric vehicles are slowly being introduced, but will take tens of years to fulfil before we see all petrol and diesel vehicles disappear from our roads. But what of the supply of electricity? With millions of electric vehicles on our roads we will be hard pushed for power stations to supply enough energy, and what of the domestic supplies that are required to power our homes and gadgets. This will be another big problem for mankind.

We humans are slowly but surely destroying our world, but nobody seems to care except the scientists. They tell us we are heading for big trouble in our world but no-one takes any notice. We all go on with our daily lives and do not care what our children and their children will face in the coming years. Without a doubt they will face hard times as the pollution gets worse and worse.

We have to think of our children and what sort of life they will inherit, for if we do not, they will suffer greatly. Mankind must wake up to the dangers we are putting our lives into, and prevent the end of the world.

Obesity – A Deadly Menace

Posted in America, Britain, Children, Health, Modern World, News, Obesity, Overweight, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 12/10/2017 by floroy1942

Walking around these days you see more obese people than slim ones. Obesity is becoming an epidemic of huge proportions and it won’t go away. People are stuffing themselves with poor food that is supplied by the food manufacturers and it it needs to change.

Crops are no longer grown naturally, but fed with chemicals instead of allowing them to grow naturally. Many farmers have two or three crops a year fed by these chemicals and they all end up in the food factories. They are not natural, but have many chemicals added, and on the whole they are tasteless without adding more chemicals like salt, pepper and sauces to give them flavour.

images

I cannot for the life of me see why so many people go to McDonald’s and Burger King among others to have a meal. These are the main reasons why so many people are obese, apart from the poor food they eat at home.

Even cows, chickens and other animals are force feed with chemicals that will make them grow faster and fatter and this is no good. For when we put a steak and vegetables on the table we are ingesting these chemicals and it is not doing us any good.

images (1)

Walking down the street you see obese people left and right, and this is worse in Britain than anywhere else, except perhaps the United States. In a few years time the hospitals are going to be overcrowded with people seeking medical help with their obesity.

It is a fact that obese people will suffer greatly from sickness including, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain types such as breast and colon cancer. There is no way these people will live to a ripe old age as the present old age pensioners do. This will overload the NHS in Britain to such an extent that it will run out of money very quickly. In the end the whole NHS will collapse in on itself.

If people are to live to a ripe old age things have to change, and that means the way we eat will have to change rapidly. We cannot go on the way we are for this will lead to a catastrophe.

What A Farce

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, English Schools, European Union, Gays, Human Rights, News with tags , , , , on 06/09/2017 by floroy1942

Britain is really going bonkers (and I put that politely). A Priory School in Lewes has gone so far as to ban skirts in order to introduce a more gender-neutral uniform.

The headmaster said, “Transgender students are only a small aspect of why we have made this decision, there are five or six trans-students currently at the school.” So the whole school has to wear a transgender uniform to satisfy these five or six queers?

I have a long time given up on Britain as a place to live, for the whole country is going mad. How long before other schools join the ‘transgender revolution’? It is sickening to me that such rules have to be passed to satisfy these people.

Several parents have criticised the move – especially since they weren’t consulted before the big change. One mother with a daughter at the school said that her daughter wasn’t happy with having her gender taken away. “My daughter said she has got a gender and it’s female so being gender neutral when she has got a gender is a big deal for her, as she’s proud to be a girl,” she commented.

“The hypocrisy is what gets me the most,” said another mum. “If girls dressing differently than boys is now to be considered sexist, then it is equally sexist to have female teachers wearing skirts and not wearing ties.” “If they want this, they must live the values they force on others and go fully gender free. The school is creating a hostile environment for girls by treating their views with contempt.”

Chief executive Susie Green said “adding gender neutral uniforms is one of many simple ways that schools can help any pupils struggling with their gender in any way. Schools need to take a clear line to accept and embrace all diversity, no matter how small the numbers affected.”

I find this most disturbing,  and wonder what the U.K. will be like in ten years time. It makes me wonder if Britain is going mad! What is our world going to look like in ten or twenty years time.

The Worst Year In History

Posted in America, Britain, Children, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, Plastic Rubbish with tags , , , , on 03/09/2017 by floroy1942

2017 has become the worst year in history as we see storms and flooding all across the world. This sort of thing never happened when I was a child, but today we have contaminated the world atmosphere as never before, and this is to blame for the terrible weather we have experienced all across the globe. If we continue, things will get much worse.

170824-noaa-texas-gulf-storm-harvey-njs-1105a_cfe6824a843278e082782d095a130cf9.nbcnews-fp-1200-800The United States has never seen such terrible flooding and wild fires in the south of the country. The flooding in Texas was solely due to the massive hurricane and rainfall that came with it and lasted for a week. This phenomenon was caused solely by the way mankind has contaminated the atmosphere. In other parts of the country wildfires have been destroying forests as never before, all due to the lack of rainfall, again due to mankind.

imagesBut this has not been happening only in the USA, for other countries like Bangladesh has suffered severe flooding that has driven tens of thousands of people out of their homes. We have seen much the same thing in the Far East where people are suffering.

images (1)In Africa a million people are starving due to the weather because they can no longer grow crops. Temperatures have reached more that 50 degrees in some parts of the world, and if you think this is going to stop, then you had better think again.

This phenomenon is due solely to mankind and the way we treat our planet. Atmospheric contamination is reaching levels that the world has not been able to handle, and for sure we humans will suffer in the long term.

images (2)We have become so concentrated on ourselves that we do not care what damage we are doing to our planet. It is time for us to think of the damage we are doing to this Earth. Governments must take action as quickly as possible to stop the pollution of our atmosphere, and that means drastically reducing the the number of vehicles on our roads world-wide, and taking action against factories that pollute the atmosphere.

SeaNet-World-Map-Great-Oceanic-Garbage-Patches-10-Year-PlanSomething must be done to ban plastic on our planet for this is the number one environment polluter. We already see major contamination of our oceans with plastic all across the world. Another thing that should be banned is the poisonous chemicals that farms use to grow crops, for this is eventually polluting our oceans.

I am nearly 75 and I will not be around for many years to come, but all this contamination will affect our children and theirs. Every person on the planet must think of the future, and what we are leaving for our children. It is clear that if we continue as we are they will suffer many hardships and many will die young.

images (4)Sad to say. the governments of the world are not taking any positive measures to reign in climate change, but as the world progresses they will will forced to in years to come. This will be most unpopular with the masses, but it must be done if the human race is to survive on Earth.

I Just Can’t Believe This – Boy’s In Skirts?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, English Schools, Gays, Homosexuals, Modern World, News, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 15/05/2017 by floroy1942

Boys In Skirts?

Can you imagine boys going to school in skirts? It would appear that this is the latest new trend in North London’s Highgate Private School! Its all about being ‘gender neutral’, and the school authorities have initiated the idea of allowing boys to wear skirts to school if they so desire.

Girls can already wear a grey pleated skirt or trousers but the boys are restricted to wearing trousers and have to wait until they are sixteen before even adorning themselves with earrings.

Adam Pettitt, headmaster at the school said, “This generation is really questioning [if we are] being binary in the way we look at things. He said some former pupils had complained about the changes. “They write in and say if you left children to their own devices they would grow up differently and you are promoting the wrong ideas,”

Well, I certainly agree with that for allowing boys to wear skirts would ensure they grow up to be homosexuals.

The school already allows children to request that staff address them by a name of the opposite gender, which around half a dozen have done. One boy has also been allowed to wear a dress to school. Can you imagine a boy wearing a dress to school? It is too ridiculous for words!

Its about time this gender idea was knocked on the head, for in my time boys never got the idea that they were feminine. The LGBT crowd have been given far too much freedom these days and pretty soon the world will be filled with them. As you can imagine from this blog, I don’t like homosexuals and lesbians etc. I remember well when I was in Amsterdam seeing men strolling around holding hands and often kissing on the streets. It was disgusting.

I well remember when I went to a friend’s wedding in Biarritz in France. A gang of us went out after the wedding on the town, and late at night we ended up in a ‘gay’ bar. When we went inside we saw men kissing and fondling each other like crazy. It was disgusting to say the least. I kept my backside against the wall for the whole time we were in there.

There are many people these days who accept readily the idea of ‘gays’ but I am afraid I do not. Many people turn up at ‘gay parades’ to watch men dancing around practically naked, in fact some of them are naked.

I have to say that the world is going crazy these days and I am glad I am old, for I do not wish to live in a society that is flooded with these strange men and women.

Boys And Girls Or “Genderqueer”?

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, English Schools, European Union, Gays, News, Primary Education with tags , , , , on 12/12/2016 by floroy1942
"Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer"

“Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And Girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer”

I have just read the biggest load of tripe I have come across in years. The U.K. government-funded ‘Educate and Celebrate’ Organisation has introduced a new rule where schools cannot call children as young as seven a boy or a girl as part of a major diversity drive.

It suggests terms such as ‘genderqueer’ and ‘panromantic’ – used to describe someone who is attracted to people of all gender identities. A book about to be released is described by the publishers as “the first book to explain medical transitioning for children aged seven and above”. 

Ellie Barnes, Educate and Celebrate founder, described the book as ‘much needed’. She said: “Not everyone identifies as male or female – that is fact.” Backed by Ofsted, the publishers have sent out the book called ‘Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?’ which features a fictional story about a 12-year-old boy transitioning from male to female. This book has been sent to 120 ‘best practice’ schools and suggests new terms to address young children.

Former Conservative Party chairman Lord Tebbit, told a Sunday newspaper: “I think it is damaging to children to introduce uncertainty into their minds.” I have to say I agree wholeheartedly.

I have to ask, where do these people come from? The world has changed to such an extent that people can come up with the most ludicrous ideas and they get accepted by the rank and file. Is the world going crazy or what?

People who come up with these stupid ideas belong in a mental asylum, plain and simple! Do they mean to make all future generations transgender or what? The mind boggles!

The School Debate

Theresa May

Theresa May

It amazes me that so many people are up in arms about Theresa May wanting to reintroduce grammar schools. Why, what is wrong with these people? Years ago these schools were the backbone of higher education, excluding university’s of course, and they were there for the more gifted youngsters. They were a beacon for the more intelligent children who eventually got into our university’s.

Corbyn The Fool

Corbyn The Fool

From this system came our brightest scientists, industry entrepreneurs and politicians and many more. Since we no longer have proper grammar schools this has all but disappeared.

Eleven-plus Exam

Eleven-plus Exam

Britain still has 166 grammar schools but they are nothing like they used to be. We need more throughout Britain to give our children a choice in education, and an opportunity to increase their knowledge above that which is taught in secondary modern schools.

I have to say that our education system is currently a total failure, with poor teachers, classroom sizes far too big, and a total lack of discipline, all creating a generation of idiots for the most part. Naturally I do not include all children or teachers in this category. Compared to years ago, few of our children are bright enough to get to university. If we ever stopped foreign students from entering them most would close down for lack of pupils.

In Days Gone By

In Days Gone By

When I compare today’s education system with what it was like when I was a child I have to say that the entire system is a shambles. Teachers of my day knew their subject back to front and inside out. You asked a question and you got an immediate answer, whereas today many teachers must refer to the lesson material before giving an answer.

Street Thugs

Street Thugs

Discipline has gone out the window because the teacher is not allowed to take any action against an unruly pupil, except perhaps to send them out of the class. Long gone are the most effective methods of teaching a child discipline in class, and today, if any action is taken the parents will be hammering on the headmaster’s door complaining like hell. No, I’m afraid child discipline is a thing of the past, which is evident in the child and teenage thugs, thieves and killers we have in our society today. I do not blame the schools entirely for this because many parents do little to bring up their child properly.

We make no difference today between a gifted child and a fool with the current system and that is a shame. Gifted children should be given a good education to make the most of their talents in grammar schools, but they can’t currently have that when sharing a class with dunces, to use an old word.

Grammar Schools In England

Grammar Schools In England

Ever since Tony Blair had exams made easier so that he could show high pass rates  for kids the whole system has gone down the drain. Many teachers are no longer trained properly, have scant knowledge of their chosen subject and in my view are practically worthless.

If teachers were trained properly they would know their chosen subject inside out, and be able to answer any question from pupils without referring to their books. It worked years ago why not now? The answer to that is because the teachers are not trained properly, and often enter schools before they are fully qualified because of a shortage.

Could We See Another Albert Einstein?

Could We See Another Albert Einstein?

If Britain is to move forward in the current high-tech world, we have to start training our children to behave properly, learn properly and be a credit to society, not some lout always looking for a fight.

If the grammar school idea is put into practice, we have to ensure that teachers are properly qualified, and the most gifted children are allowed to attend. The 11-plus exam certainly separates the wheat from the chaff, and this is precisely what we need if this country is to move forward. We need to nurture our more brighter pupils into becoming our future leaders in science, industry and politics.

Would You Call Your Child Pilot Inspektor?

There are better ways of getting your name in the papers than giving your children such idiotic names. Some of them may sound cute when the child is still a baby, but what happens when they get to schools age, of even worse, when they are adults. I would be utterly ashamed to have to tell, for example, the tax man or a prospective boss that my name is Pilot Inspektor. Have people totally lost it these days?

Here are some of the other names that celebrities have given their children:

By Heck It’s Hot!

Posted in America, Brazil, Britain, Children, Conservation, Environment, Forests, Modern World, News, Politics with tags , , , , on 04/08/2016 by floroy1942

As many people know, global temperatures are going through the roof. It is a matter of record that again this year has been the hottest ever since monitoring began, and you have to ask where it will all end? Will next year be hotter as the temperatures continue to rise?

Holiday Fun On The Beach

Holiday Fun On The Beach

There can be little doubt that mankind is responsible for these changes in our atmosphere, for we have been polluting it ever since the turn of the century, and year on year it gets worse. With the increase in transport and factories over the last fifty years we have steadily been pumping more and more CO2 into the atmosphere than ever before, and year on year it is increasing. It is common sense that at some time in the future there must come a breaking point, at which time people across the world will start dying en masse.

We have had Climate Change Conferences attended by all the major nations in the world, but it would seem that although agreements have been reached, nothing really changes. The politicians are all ready to sign agreements, but when it comes to implementing them very little happens.

Traffic Jam

Traffic Jam

Climate conferences have been held annually ever since 1995, but when you look at the world outside your window, really nothing has changed. The number of polluting vehicles on our roads has not decreased, as it needs to do, but has in fact increased to well over a billion world wide. As people in places like China and India become more affluent, this number will increase even more.

Say what you like, but this number of vehicles on our roads is pushing so much pollution into the air that our Earth just cannot handle it any more. The same can be said for factories, especially in places like China and India that are not as technically advanced as the West.

This increased pollution of our atmosphere is leading to huge areas of drought in many countries, along with  flash flooding, even hurricanes and typhoons in areas of the world where such things have been unheard of in the past. It must make you wonder what life will be like in twenty years time if this keeps up.

To top all this off, we are destroying the only things they can tip the balance the other way, like the sea and forests and the soil.

Amazon Destruction

Amazon Destruction

When I was a youngster fishing fleets would go out and catch maybe a half ton of fish, but these days the huge vessels we have today catch 100 tons every time they lower the nets. In effect we are raping our seas of all marine life. On top of that we are steadily destroying the forests of the world, like the Amazon and many others.

What we don’t care about is that these things are the real life-blood of our planet, for they provide the oxygen that we breathe that keeps us alive. They absorb the CO2 that we put into the atmosphere and give us oxygen in return. Whatever you may think, nature is finely balanced, but so long as we continue to destroy that which gives us life you can be sure that eventually humanity will disappear from the planet. These days are approaching rapidly in historical terms because we are not doing enough to correct the balance.

Health_effects_of_pollutionIf mankind is to survive we have to make some very hard choices, but most people are not willing to do this because, at the moment, it doesn’t affect them. But you should think of your children and their children, for what sort of world are we going to give them? Will they be wearing a gas mask all day because the levels of pollution are so high? Will people be dying in their hundreds of thousands from pollution right, left and centre? What chance will your grand-children have to live a normal life?

These are all questions we must ask ourselves in this day and age, for if we are to ensure they have a good life then we need to do something now to stop the rot!

Pollution Levels

Pollution Levels

Governments must start taking the measures needed to stop the destruction of our home planet even though they will be unpopular with the people. To begin with they could restrict families to one car only which would greatly reduce the number of polluting cars on our roads. They can do this by improving bus and train services in towns and cities so it is no longer necessary to drive to work.

Earth In Big Trouble

Earth In Big Trouble

Some people seem to think that the electric car is one of the great solutions to our contamination problems, but we have to think logically about this. If everyone drove around in electric cars, which are non-polluting,  it would put a totally unsustainable load on power generating plants, which would be unable to cope.

Governments need to stop the destruction of forests world-wide, and ensure that new trees are planted wherever possible. Were we to have hundreds of new forests across the world this would go a long way to replenishing the oxygen that we all need.

Modern Trawler

Modern Trawler

Also we need to stop the literal rape and pollution of the seas for they too provide us with oxygen. Fish species are dying out at an unprecedented rate, and if we keep on the way we are going there will be none left. I remember when I was young that some cod were caught that were eight or ten feet long, but now you are lucky if they are four feet long. We are killing them off before they have a chance to grow.

Another thing we need to change is the steady destruction of the soil that is needed to grow crops to feed us. We are producing so much farm produce that we have destroyed the natural elements in the soil that allow crops to grow healthily. Farmers have for decades been spraying crops and adding synthetic nutrients to the soil in order to get crops to grow.

Air Pollution In The Future

Air Pollution In The Future

These chemicals are steadily poisoning our food and creating all sorts of sicknesses within the human body. They are slowly but steadily destroying the ground that we need to sustain us with food. Much of it also ends up in streams and rivers and finds its way eventually to the sea.

There can be little doubt that if mankind is to survive for another century, there must be some major changes in the way we live and care for our environment, and everyone must do their bit, and that includes you and me!

A Swiss Dilemma And A Warning To Europe

A Normal Showing Of Respect In All Swiss Schools

A Normal Showing Of Respect In All Swiss Schools

A row has broken out in Switzerland about the shaking of hands, and you can guess who is causing this controversy – the Muslims! The following article was sent to me by a friend and I thought it interesting enough to post here.

It certainly gives you an idea of the great divide that separates us westerners from our Muslim immigrants, and adds fuel to the belief that they will never fully integrate into our society even though we offer them a home free from strife and war.

“In Switzerland it has long been customary for students to shake the hands of their teachers at the beginning and end of the school day. It’s a sign of solidarity and mutual respect between teacher and pupil, one that is thought to encourage the right classroom atmosphere. Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga recently felt compelled to further explain that shaking hands was part of Swiss culture and daily life.

And the reason she felt compelled to speak out about the handshake is that two Muslim brothers, aged 14 and 15, who have lived in Switzerland for several years (and thus are familiar with its mores), in the town of Therwil, near Basel, refused to shake the hands of their teacher, a woman, because, they claimed, this would violate Muslim teachings that contact with the opposite sex is allowed only with family members. At first the school authorities decided to avoid trouble, and initially granted the boys an exemption from having to shake the hand of any female teacher. But an uproar followed, as Mayor Reto Wolf explained to the BBC: “the community was unhappy with the decision taken by the school. In our culture and in our way of communication a handshake is normal and sends out respect for the other person, and this has to be brought home to the children in school.”

Therwil’s Educational Department reversed the school’s decision, explaining in a statement on May 25 that the school’s exemption was lifted because “the public interest respect to equality between men and women and the integration of foreigners significantly outweighs the freedom of religion.” It added that a teacher has the right to demand a handshake. Furthermore, if the students refused to shake hands again “the sanctions called for by law will be applied,” which included a possible fine of up to 5,000 dollars

This uproar in Switzerland, where many people were enraged at the original exemption granted to the Muslim boys, did not end after that exemption was itself overturned by the local Educational Department. The Swiss understood quite clearly that this was more than a little quarrel over handshakes; it was a fight over whether the Swiss would be masters in their own house, or whether they would be forced to yield, by the granting of special treatment, to the Islamic view of the proper relations between the sexes. It is one battle – small but to the Swiss significant – between overweening Muslim immigrants and the indigenous Swiss.

Naturally, once the exemption was withdrawn, all hell broke loose among Muslims in Switzerland. The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland, instead of yielding quietly to the Swiss decision to uphold the handshaking custom, criticized the ruling in hysterical terms, claiming that the enforcement of the handshaking is “totalitarian” (!) because its intent is to “forbid religious people from meeting their obligations to God.” That, of course, was never the “intent” of the long-standing handshaking custom, which was a nearly universal custom in Switzerland, and in schools had to do only with encouraging the right classroom atmosphere of mutual respect between instructor and pupil, of which the handshake was one aspect.

The Swiss formulation of the problem – weighing competing claims — will be familiar to Europeans and Americans versed in Constitutional adjudication. In this case “the public interest with respect to equality” of the sexes and the “integration of foreigners” (who are expected to adopt Swiss ways, not force the Swiss to exempt them from some of those ways) were weighed against the “religious obligations to God” of Muslims, and the former interests found to outweigh the latter.

What this case shows is that even at the smallest and seemingly inconsequential level, Muslims are challenging the laws and customs of the Infidels among whom they have been allowed to settle [i.e., stealth jihad toward sharia dominance]. Each little victory, or defeat, will determine whether Muslims will truly integrate into a Western society or, instead, refashion that society to meet Muslim requirements.

The handshake has been upheld and, what’s more, a stiff fine now will be imposed on those who continue to refuse to shake hands with a female teacher. This is a heartening sign of non-surrender by the Swiss. But the challenges of the Muslims within Europe to the laws and customs of the indigenes have no logical end and will not stop. And the greater the number of Muslims allowed to settle in Europe, the stronger and more frequent their challenges will be. They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society, and eventually, through sheer force of numbers from both migration and by out-breeding the Infidels, to fashion not a parallel society but one society — now dominated by Muslim sharia.

The Swiss handshaking dispute has received some, but not enough, press attention. Presumably, it’s deemed too inconsequential a matter to bother with. But the Swiss know better. And so should we.

There’s an old Scottish saying that in one variant reads: “Many a little makes a mickle.” That is, the accumulation of many little things leads to one big thing. That’s what’s happening in Europe today This was one victory for the side of sanity. There will need to be a great many more.”  

When a foreign country takes you in because your own is at war you would expect those who have been saved from war and death to be grateful, and assimilate into your society, respecting your laws and customs. In the modern world this is not happening, at least not with the Muslims. Their initial gratitude is short-lived and then they begin to assert their way of life on Europe.

Many will think that this another anti-Muslim rant reading this, but that just is not true. I am perfectly willing to live alongside these people if they respect us, our laws, and way of life. Sadly, they do not.

While all other religions have adapted to modern life and have kept up with the times, sad to say this is not true of the Islamic religion. With their rules and customs they are still living in an era of 2,000 years ago.

Muslims are literally brainwashed into their religion, for they are taught the Qur’an as soon as they are old enough to read, and they have no other choice. Try to leave the Muslim faith and you will be put to death.

The article states:  “They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society.I should think by now that most people in Europe, at least those with active brains, will see that the quoted sentence is justified.

In places all over Europe they have taken over districts of cities and towns and turned them into something resembling their own country, complete with Sharia Law. With their birthrate six or seven times that of ethnic Europeans they will outnumber us in say twenty or thirty years time, and then the troubles will really start. For there can be little doubt that from that time on they will try to take over the whole of Europe and to make it Muslim.

The people of Europe will not stand for this, so you can be sure there will be fighting between them and us. If they outnumber us who is to say who will win.

I am glad I old and will not be around to see it, but I pity my children and grandchildren who will have to live through this. There can be little doubt that European governments need to wake up to this hidden menace and take steps to stop it, for if they don’t, then all hell with break loose.

Roy.
