I have no respect or tolerance for Sharia

H/T Hibernia Girl...

This is a great op-ed piece in the Independent

Mass immigration is a serious problem all over the Western World...not just here in the US. Seems Europe is faring far worse than we are. Just check out Gates of Vienna for the European angle...hahaha I made a punny. Seriously though. GoV Has been on top of the European situation for a long time. Also Chck out Fjordman who also regularly posts at GoV as well.

"....Well, I am Islamophobic in the sense that I'm phobic towards the notion of treating women as third-class citizens, flogging people and killing them for having an independent thought.

I'm phobic towards the idea of killing Theo Van Gogh because he made a movie they didn't like. I'm phobic towards killing a Japanese translator because he worked on the Satanic Verses.

I'm also rather phobic to the notion that the Muslim world has the right to riot and kill each other because of a few unfunny cartoons in an obscure Danish publication.

As regards the spurious accusation of racism which is bandied about against anyone who criticises Islam, let me make this clear -- you cannot change the colour of your skin. Pigmentation is irrelevant. But you can dislike someone's superstition and in Islam's case, even among other superstitions, they are particularly horrible.

No, my Muslim friend, it's your religion and your Sharia law I am criticising. It has nothing to do with the colour of your skin. And you know what? In a free democracy we still have the right to say things like that."
