Norway Holds the Line

One way to wage jihad is with violence. Another way is to constantly push for a political concession to Islam. Here's a good one: Some Muslims in Norway are pushing for a restriction on alcohol because it makes Muslims feel uncomfortable sometimes when people around them are drinking.

"Muslims want to have alcohol-free days in discos. There should be some days when people can go to restaurants and discos where there's a total ban on alcohol," says one of the Muslims pushing for political reform.

So far, Hege Storhaug, the co-founder of Human Rights Service, rejects such a proposal. "All the time they have special rules," says Storhaug, "and we reject special requirements. We get a split-up society and Islam gets more presence in the public sphere. People force religious opinions on others. In the most extreme consequence it leads to the Islamization of society." I like this woman.

"All the time it's Muslims who come with special requirements," she says. "We never hear a peep from Catholics, Jews, Hindus etc."

This concession didn't happen. Will this stop them? No. They will keep pushing. The only answer is no more concessions to Islam.
