Crystal Clear

Came across this observation:
Holland—with its disproportionately high Muslim population—is the canary in the mine. Its once open society is closing, and Europe is closing slowly behind it. It looks, from Holland, like the twilight of liberalism—not the “liberalism” that is actually libertarianism, but the liberalism that is freedom. Not least freedom of expression.

British police tell a paper they cannot protect it from terrorist threats if they publish the Muhammad cartoon, while 500 police are assigned to protect Muslim protesters calling for the murder of those who insult Islam. Orianna Falacci is about to go on trial in Italy for defaming Islam, and the British government is still trying to get a law passed that would make criticism of Islam impossible.

The truth is as clear as daylight. Where Muslims exist in sufficient numbers to have influence, normal Western freedoms cannot long survive. Freedom for Muslims to come to the West and live freely here means the end of our freedom. The practical alternatives are therefore also as clear as daylight. Either we remove the Muslims’ freedom to enter our society and live here and practice their religion here, or we will lose our most basic freedoms—to speak, to write, to express our opinions, to move about, and to maintain a society familiar and recognizable as our own.
Like it or not, there is no other conclusion to reach, as anyone who follows the news can attest.

The above article could also have mentioned this serious blasphemy conviction of a man in Germany for insulting islam:
DUESSELDORF, Germany (Reuters) - A German court on Thursday convicted a businessman of insulting Islam by printing the word “Koran” on toilet paper and offering it to mosques.
The maximum sentence for insulting religious beliefs under the German criminal code is three years in prison.
Can't happen here?

We've already got girls playing high school basketball in islamic garb in Chicago, and a ban on portraitures (so as not to offend muslims) in St. Paul, MN school art classes:
As violent protests over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad continue around the world, a St. Paul charter school is quietly negotiating the delicate question of how to teach art to Muslims.
Out the window right away went masks, puppets and that classic of elementary school art class, the self-portrait, said Sara Langworthy, an artist with ArtStart. Revamping the curriculum “definitely requires stepping outside of the normal instincts that you fall back on,” she said.

No, one of the "freedoms" was spurious: the supposed (and false) "freedom" of outsiders to enter my civilization.

Yes, islam, the ideology, is indeed a plague!

You are posting from Saudi Arabia. I think Saudi society is rather primitive, for the way it treats it women, for one thing.

I think Arabia is primitive for not allowing freedom of religion. You speak of freedom, but ignore that one, don't you? All you want is the freedom to invade.

Why don't you allows Christians to worship openly in Arabia? Do they carry a plague?
