A Good Start -- Austria
[Comments enabled]

Austria has finally taken the bull by the horns and cut the smiley

VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria’s right-wing government plans to shut seven mosques and could expel dozens of imams in what it said was “just the beginning” of a push against radical Islam and foreign funding of religious groups that Turkey condemned as racist.


I'll tell you what's racist: Believing that you have the right to cloak a political ideology of submission, class-separation by birth and faith into master and slave through labeling it a "religion" and that should you not get your way you will rape or murder those who disagree.

How and to whom you pray, or if you pray at all, is a matter of religion and in America at least is absolutely protected under the First Amendment.

However when the truth is that your alleged "religion" comes with not just professed but expressed belief and act that separates people into classes based upon whether they agree with you or, even worse, whether they are of one sex or the other then you've crossed the line from religion into political ideological activity that the civilized world ruled unacceptable a long time ago.

Slavery by any means is still slavery.  "Dhimmitude" is by definition illegal to the extent it is practiced in any form with the force of law.  If such is part of some alleged religion's "holy text" and remains and is practiced that is not a religion at all; it is a violent political ideology and representing otherwise is a lie.

You cannot make me sit in a pew or pray on a mat next to you; I have the right to refuse.  Further, I can consent today and refuse tomorrow; a choice of religion which I am free to adopt or leave as I wish.  To lay sanction of any form, particularly but not exclusively in the form of extortion or violence, as a result of my election is a gross violation of fundamental human rights that precede government and thus cannot be subsumed or violated by same.

That's the First Amendment in the US and the reason for it or, in the context of the EU, The Charter of Fundamental Rights (Article 10).

If you turn around and say that if I do not do as you direct in that regard you will find political or economic punishment for me, including laying taxes, attacking me if I'm a woman and refuse to wear clothing you approve of and pray your way, or murdering me outright then you are the racist and you are the one who must be destroyed because you have declared that fundamental human rights that predate all government are subservient to your alleged "faith."

If you preach this you're not a religion, you're a seditious political group with a self-declared intent to overthrow the sitting government by force.

That is illegal in every civilized nation of the world and those nations who do not respect same are barbarians who have intentionally, by their own hand, forfeited their claim to humanity.

If any said group is funded by foreigners, no matter who they are, that is a declaration of war by an external entity upon a sitting, functional and legitimately elected government.

We *may* be seeing the political pendulum beginning to swing to the right in the face of the outrageous actions by the EU nations.

"radical Islam?"

**** ISLAM PERIOD...END OF STORY! I could not read through the entirety of sickness throughout the koran as there is so much anti-humane trash that I've read enough of it to know that little-boy-sodomy, little-girl-rape with a whole host of other **** that means nothing beyond these two satanic factions of the koran.

What's worse than "radical jihadist'" is moderate islamists! Why? Because they WILL cower to their radical cohorts. Do you see ANY moderates standing against radicals in the UK? Ya, that's what I ****ing thought! You think that will be anything different in the USA????????????? Tommy Robinson anyone???????????

Bottom line...what the **** is sitting behind every blade of grass in today's moderate America????????

Please God, take it all away!

we are seeing the beginnings of full bore Mexican, South American and Islamic mafias in the US. We already have complete, self-contained, cohesive, large ghettos (i mean neighborhoods) of this trash. we compound it by supporting them with a profound welfare state to which even the earlier mafias did not have access. they cycle our largess through their own under the radar economies and allow criminal and illegal immigrant elements to live complete under the radar full lives. these are the wells from which terrorists will spring and our enemies will hide right under our noses. there are a few neighborhoods in NYC that are inches away from becoming no go zones for mainstream Americans as you can see the dirtbag's attitudes changing. no one cares to notice.

the Mexican mowing your lawn or cooking restaurant food will be slitting your child's throat or demanding protection money from local businesses.

notice over the past two decades an acceptance of child sexuality and increased sexualization of children. debates over lowering the age of female consent and accepting pedophilia as legitimate sexual orientation. kind of parallels with the Islamic issue with child rape, interesting huh. i can tell you that many white, middle class girls not of current legal age are already being deflowered by these other ethnic groups. youthful experimentation aside, perhaps we have the beginnings of young girls being groomed for the adult services life; there is sex and there is abuse, know the difference. i ministered to this population in Manhattan in a much darker time and this is part of the process of breaking girls that was used by other dirtbags of another time. I see Islamists as an invading army essentially raping the host country and its women. remember you can do anything to the other. you have no idea what we are in for.

same ****, different *******.

There are two ways to be rich: One is by acquiring much, and the other is by desiring little.

Asimov - Austria is also the country that overturned a prison sentence issued to an "Iraqi refugee" who raped a 10 year old boy at a public swimming pool because he was experiencing a "sexual emergency". The rationale for overturning the sentence was that the prosecution had not provided evidence that the man did not know that his victim did not consent. His 10 year old victim in a country where the age of consent is 14. I think Whitehat might be onto something.

Whitehat is spot on.

Rape has, in almost all instances, been part of warfare. It's a very effective way to subjugate a population and humiliate an enemy. I'm not saying I agree with it nor condone it - it's a war crime. I'm merely saying it is what occupying and invading forces do.

Look up what the Red Army did to Berlin in May of 1945, and what the Wermacht did to Poland and Russia prior to that.

Taken in that context, Islam makes sense from a total warfare point of view. So does Third-world immigration, and much of the FBI crime stat tables.

We are the educated, civilized part of this, yet we refuse to see it for what it is. Islam knows it is at war; we do not.

When the bond market shatters, it's going to be total warfare on a two-way street.
