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.

Ukraine – Things Are Getting Out of Hand!

Posted in America, Britain, David Cameron, England, European Union, News, Nuclear Weapons, Obama, Russia with tags , , , , on 31/08/2014 by floroy1942
Ukraine

Ukraine

The question comes to mind – Are we heading for a third world war over Ukraine? The rhetoric from all sides is getting tougher by the minute, and no sensible plan has been put forward to solve the crisis by either side. There seems to be endless mud-slinging, charge and counter-charge over what is happening there, and of course the West with its sanctions against Russia. But you have to ask yourself, what is all this accomplishing? Well, to my mind – nothing!

Push It At Your Peril

Push It At Your Peril

Tensions are getting higher and higher because neither side is (a) willing to tell the truth, and (b) no-one wants to back down. So we have a war of words between West and East and so far as I can see, temperatures are rising.  This is not good for anybody and solves nothing. Eventually some hot-head somewhere will have had enough and push The Button! If that happens it will mean the end of mankind on this planet, mind you, the way we have been carrying on for the last century we probably deserve it!

I am just an ordinary citizen but even I can see a way out of this chaos.

Russia does not wish to have NATO on its doorstep stretching all the way from the Adriatic to the Black Sea, which would happen if Ukraine joins. Militarily it is always better to have another country between you and your protagonist, a buffer zone if you like especially in light of their Naval Base in Sevastopol.

Russian Naval Fleet In Sevastopol Harbour

Russian Naval Fleet In Sevastopol Harbour

Putin is afraid of losing Sevastopol, the only warm water harbour Russia has for it’s Navy. That is the reason the Russians took over the Crimea at the start of the crisis. Should he lose Sevastopol, his Navy would be forced to retreat to the port of Murmansk above the Arctic Circle, or Vladivostok on the Pacific coast of Eastern Russia. For Russia this would be a strategic disaster in the event of hostilities.

Fighting In Ukraine

Fighting In Ukraine

In the meantime, accusations are flying back and forth about Russian troops coming into Ukraine to support the Russian sympathizers, and Government troops have been fighting them for several weeks. Only the other day during his annual visit to  a camp for boys outside Moscow, Putin felt it necessary to remind the West that Russia was a nuclear nation with a large arsenal of weapons.

Russian Gas

Russian Gas

But despite all the sanctions against it, Russia has a large card it can play too in the form of the gas supplies to Europe. Much of Europe now depends on gas pumped from Russia, and should they decide to close the tap this winter, it may not be catastrophic,  but it would certainly cause problems, and tensions would rise yet again.

One thing people need to remember is that all the sanctions in the world may hurt, but they alone will never bring a country like Russia to its knees. But, there can come a time when someone in the hierarchy says, “Enough” and pushes the fatal button.

Conference Table

Conference Table

It is for this reason that I feel all the participants need to sit around one table and find a solution. I mentioned at the beginning that I have a solution that should please everybody. Let Ukraine be neutral in world affairs just like Switzerland.

NATO Symbol

If the country were to take a neutral stance, but continue to trade with the E.U. and Russia there would be no problem. Russia would have its buffer-zone, as would NATO, and there would be no harm in Russia retaining its Sevastopol harbour facilities in a trade agreement with the Ukraine government.

I am aware that it all seems simple when sitting behind the computer at home for there would be an awful lot to sort out politically, but is such a thing impossible?

Ukraine wants to join the EU, but being neutral would not stop her trading with EU countries, it certainly doesn’t stop the Swiss. There is also no reason for the country to stop trading with Russia, and in fact, anyone else they choose.

I am sure the government would be happy to receive a steady income from the Russian’s for their use of Sevastopol, and the Russians would be happy to keep using it.

So far as NATO goes, I can see no reason why they would not be happy with such a solution, for an agreement such as this is surely better than a war that would annihilate all of us.

In The Words Of John Lennon...

In The Words Of John Lennon…

I sincerely hope that all sides, and by this I mean Putin, the USA, the Ukrainian leaders of both sides, and responsible people from Europe, can eventually come to the table and discuss this properly without any preconditions, and look to making Ukraine a neutral country spanning East and West.

For that sake of world peace I hope cool heads rule.

The Real Meaning Of Dirty Money

Posted in Britain, England, Europe, Health, Modern World, UK with tags , , , , , , on 27/03/2013 by floroy1942

No-one really likes to get their hands dirty, but we do that on a daily basis in more ways than one. I guess I wasn’t too surprised to read yesterday that money, apart from being the root of all evil, is also one of the filthiest things we handle day to day. Oxford University scientists carried out a series of tests on our money to find just how many bacteria the average banknote holds, and the results are surprising.

Dirty Money

Dirty Money

When asked, most people were of the opinion that money was dirty and spread disease, but now the full extent is known. You have no idea how many people have handled that £10 or €10 note you carry in your pocket, it is most likely tens of thousands for an older note. It could have been handled by everyone from a housewife to a sewage worker, and you will never know.

Gives New Meaning To 'Money Laundering!"

Gives New Meaning To ‘Money Laundering!”

The research, carried out across many European nations led to some startling conclusions. For example, Denmark has the dirtiest money in the whole of Europe with 40,266 different bacteria found on notes. The Euro was the cleanest with only 11,066 bacteria strains found. In between came the Swiss franc, the Russian ruble, The Polish zlotys, the UK pound, and the Norwegian krone in that order. On bank notes, bacteria like Klebsiella (which causes respiratory, urinary and wound infections) and Enterobacter species, which can cause disease were found, not that I have ever heard of either.

Money has so far not made me sick, in fact, I would not mind having a great deal more of it, just to test the theory of course! But for all those hypochondriacs out there I have this simple message – wear rubber gloves, or better still,  start paying everything with the card and wipe it clean after each use. That way you will only have your own germs to deal with.

Is Sharia Law Slithering Into America?

Posted in Arab, Britain, Demonstration, England, Europe, Human Rights, Immigrants, Insanity, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Modern World, Muslim, Obama, Political Correctness, President, Religion, Sharia Law, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , on 02/12/2010 by floroy1942

I read with interest yesterday an article on the attempts of some Muslims to get Sharia Law accepted into the legal system of the U.S. State of Oklahoma. Now there’s a surprise!

Oklahoma State Senator Rex Duncan

It seems the Republican State Senator Rex Duncan introduced a constitutional amendment that effectively barred Oklahoma courts from considering Sharia Law when judging a case.

Muneer Awad – A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing?

However, Muneer Awad, the head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Oklahoma has successfully entered a legal challenge to the amendment saying it would “affect every aspect of his life, including his will and testament”. (Atishoooo! Sorry, I’m allergic to bullshit)

The judge reviewing the case, Vicky Miles-Lagrange, has granted an injunction while she considers the case. Awad brought the case on the grounds that the amendment would violate his right to religious freedom. Hah! I seem to have heard that a lot from Muslims recently!

It is just another of the relentless attacks on our western way of life by immigrant Muslims who want us to change our centuries old culture to accommodate them!

In a Few Years?

In Britain they no longer bother with trying to change the laws of the land but adopt Sharia in their own tight-nit communities anyway. Are we soon to see the same thing happening in the States?

They have over the years been arriving on our shores, refusing to assimilate themselves into our culture, and now have the audacity to start changing the way WE live by using the rights WE have given them! Religious freedom is everyone’s right, and so it should be, but not when that right is used against us to usurp our laws and culture.

Christian Hanging – Iran?

The day will never come when christians have the same rights to religious freedom in Muslim countries as they enjoy here, and that is something everyone should bear in mind. To be a Christian in devout 100% Muslim nations, like Saudi Arabia and Iran, means a life of perpetual fear of discovery, for Islam recognises only one religion; Islam. To be a christian means you will be hunted and condemned to death if caught.

You waste your time if you expect to be able to go to a court and demand religious freedom, for it doesn’t exist in these countries.

The Qu’ran states quite clearly that there is no God but Allah and anyone who worships another will be put to death.

It is sad to this author that the only country in the western hemisphere with the guts to stand up to these people are the Swiss. No other country seems to have the balls to come straight out and say; Enough is enough, and that includes the United States.

 

A Mosque on Every Corner – No Thanks!

It should seem strange to anyone with an ounce of intelligence that it becomes necessary to protect what is ours by right from this Islamic onslaught, but in this Switzerland stands alone. A recent referendum in this Alpine country voted firmly for the expulsion of ANY immigrant convicted of a serious crime, and so it should be. Last year they banned the building of more minarets in the country.

( Ref:12/03/2009 Swiss Minarets – The Tip of the Iceberg)

All the while Islam is insinuating itself into our culture using our democratic laws of freedom of speech, right of assembly and religious freedom to get their own way.

The True Horror of Sharia

Recently I blogged about Muslim children being taught to hate us from as early as 6 years old;  For a religion that is supposed to be ‘peaceful’, according to Muslims, it contains nothing but hatred for anything non-Muslim.

(Ref: 25/11/2010 Would You Teach Your Child How to Cut Off a Thief’s Hand?)

The followers of Islam consistently proclaim “Islam will rule the world” and they may well be right if the birth-rates between Muslim and non-Muslims are anything to go by.

After Britain Is America Next?

They are procreating at such a rate they will overwhelm us with numbers before 2050, but that doesn’t excuse the western governments reluctance to stave off that day for as long as possible. As surely as the attack on our culture is well under way in Britain, it is creeping towards its goal in the United States.

The western nations have been complacent for far too long, and if we don’t wake up soon to this cancer in our midst, our culture and traditions will be lost forever. To this humble christian it is unthinkable for the western nations to become Islamic states, a fact that will bring with it annihilation of all religions outside of Islam, and you can be sure those who do not capitulate will end up on the chopping block.

I know the following is going to make this a very long post and I crave your indulgence, but I find it relevant. It may not be strictly accurate, I do not know, but the message is very clear. It comes from an e-mail I received from a good friend:

Adapted from  Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.

(“)Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here’s how it works:

Muslims in Washington

 

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will, for the most part, be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

 

United States — Muslim 0.6%

Australia — Muslim 1.5%

Canada — Muslim 1.9%

China — Muslim 1.8%

Italy — Muslim 1.5%

Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%

 

Germany — Muslim 3.7%

 

United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

 

Spain — Muslim 4%

Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

 

Only Halal is Good Enough for Muslims

 

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

 

France — Muslim 8%

 

Philippines — 5%

 

Sweden — Muslim 5%

 

Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

 

The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

 

Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

 

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law.

The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

The Muslims Are in Town

 

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam (i.e. Fitna by Gert Wilders). Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:

 

Guyana — Muslim 10%

 

India — Muslim 13.4%

 

Israel — Muslim 16%

 

Kenya — Muslim 10%

 

Russia — Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad, militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian Churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%

Chad — Muslim 53.1%

Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%

Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

Sudan — Muslim 70%

Islam or Nothing!

 

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced, and in some ways on-going in:

 

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

Egypt — Muslim 90%

Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

Iran — Muslim 98%

Iraq — Muslim 97%

Jordan — Muslim 92%

Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

Pakistan — Muslim 97%

Palestine — Muslim 99%

Syria — Muslim 90%

Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

Qu’ran

 

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrases are the only schools, and the Qu’ran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

 

Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

Somalia — Muslim 100%

 

Yemen — Muslim 100%

 

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims for a variety of reasons.

“Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against my father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel” – Leon Uris in his book: The Hadj.

It is important to understand that in some countries with well under 100% Muslim populations such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, no schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Their children attend Madrases. They learn only the Qu’ran. To even associate with an ‘Infidel’ is a crime punishable by death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Mecca – The Heart of Islam

 

Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population, but their birth-rates dwarf the birth-rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews and all the other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century(“).

 

There is little doubt about the scariness of the above report, and while this writer cannot verify all the facts mentioned, there is without doubt a lot of truth in what is written, if you follow the news.

There is criticism in the United States of President Obama for appointing two ‘Devout’ Muslims to Homeland Security posts and one to Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in a ‘Devout’ Muslim as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council.

The following question was put to someone who has worked for twenty years in Saudi Aarbia: Can a devout Muslim be a good American (For American read the rest of the free world)? This was his reply:

Theologically; No – Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon God of Arabia.

Religiously; No – Because no other religion is accepted by Allah except Islam (Qu’ran, 2:256)

Scripturally; No – Because his allegiance is to the Five Pillars of Islam.

Geographically; No – Because his allegiance is to Mecca.

Socially; No – Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians, Jews etc.

Politically; No – Because he must submit to the Mullahs (Spiritual Leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and America.

Sharia Penalty For Being A Woman

 

Domestically; No – Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Qu’ran 4:34).

 

Intellectually; No –  Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principals, and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically; No – Because Islam, Mohammed, and the Koran do not allow for freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually; No – Because when we declare ‘One nation under God’, the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly Father, nor is he called ‘Love’ in the Qu’ran’s 99 excellent names(“).

So there you have it in a nutshell! In accordance with their own theology there is no way any Muslim can satisfactorily integrate into any western society if he wishes to be a good Muslim.  There is little doubt that the free western societies are under attack from within and all must be done to thwart it.

I know there may be many who read this and think I am a Muslim hater but that is far from the truth. I only have a problem with people who come to our shores with the express intent of undermining our way of life and culture. We are what we are. Accept it or go home!

Roy.
