Swiss Say No to a Concession For Islam

A Muslim man wanted his two sons to be exempt from mixed swimming classes (boys and girls in the same class), so he took it to court. The Swiss court ruled that it is more important to encourage equality between the sexes and to integrate into the society than it is to gratify religious considerations.

That's just beautiful, isn't it?

Muslims will not stop pressing for concessions. It is the free world that will have to say no. And in Switzerland, the court did just that. As Hege Storhaug, the co-founder of Human Rights Service in Norway, said: "All the time [Muslims] have special rules...We get a split-up society and Islam gets more presence in the public sphere...In the most extreme consequence it leads to the Islamization of society."

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