YOUR MORNING DANISH
Denmark’s Flemming Rose of Denmark's Jyllands-Posten, wrote an interesting editorial for Der Spiegel dealing with political correctness in Europe. Rose is the man who published the Mohammed cartoons that caused riots around the world.
Rose said the following. "Europe must shed the straitjacket of political correctness, which makes it impossible to criticize minorities for anything -- including violations of laws, traditional mores and values that are central to the European experience," Rose says. "Europe's left is deceiving itself about immigration, integration and Islamic radicalism today the same way we young hippies deceived ourselves about Marxism and communism 30 years ago.
"It's time for the Old Continent to face facts and make some profound changes in its outlook on immigration, integration and the coming Muslim demographic surge. After decades of appeasement and political correctness, combined with growing fear of a radical minority prepared to commit serious violence, Europe's moment of truth is here," he says.
Canada falls victim to excessive political correctness also. In the publications of the recent arrests of several persons assembling the materials to make bombs and planning attacks, there was no mention that the criminals were Arabs. Canadian media did not mention it, but the New York Times has printed that six of the 17 people arrested attended the same mosque, the Al Rahman Islamic Center for Islamic Education.
Although to a lesser extent, the same could be said for America. Many do not want to admit there is a Muslim agenda that is promoted on our own soil. It is time to wake up, admit the truth and deal with it. There is no need to over react, but persecuting Muslims who have no agenda other than to live and work here. But there is a need to act to protect the country against those who would destroy it.
Women should be particularly concerned, as the radical version of Islam subjugates women to such an extent that western women should be appalled. Christians and Jews should certainly be concerned, as they would be persecuted by any substantial Islamic minority, much less a majority. Remember that in most Muslim countries, it is actually illegal to convert from Islam or to preach any other religion. This is often punishable by death.
