Where Is This Religious Extremism Going?

A school in Amsterdam has halted lessons on rural life because the Islamic children refused to talk about pigs. Reporting this, Alderman Lodewijk Asscher said he wants to take "tough measures." Subsidies for all kinds of dubious groups must stop and parents of unruly children penalised financially. Asscher told newspaper De Volkskrant: "A primary school in Amsterdam-Noord has decided no longer to teach about living on a farm. Various pupils began to demolish the classroom when the pig came up for discussion. Apparently it has gone that far. These children, 9, 10 years old, have not been given even the most elementary rules at home about why they must go to school."

I wonder if we will soon see a day when dogs are publicly executed in Western countries, or their owners hassled and attacked, by Muslim extremists? And when that happens, and you have to figure it will, what will we all do about it? Will this start a new round of dog banning efforts? Will we be seeing lawsuits and laws being passed banning dogs to appease the religious extremists? If and when it happens, expect the first such laws to come from Europe. They wimp out on everything.

We have already seen Muslim cab drivers in the US refusing to take passengers with guide dogs.
