We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Sad fact is, he says what many Euros think, but are held at bay by the EC dogma, that panders to the Islamist notions. Swedes know this, along with the Danes, Belges, Holland (quite graphically, too), and even Fwance ('rioting Asian youths' anyone?)
I'm not sure of the EC thought police's reach, but his comments must be discomforting to the Kumbiya in Brussels...
Josey Wales said it best - get busy fighting or get busy dyin'...
yup, and in the EU you'd get arrested on "hate crime" charges if you dared say any of this, even if you're an MP.
Of course the jihadis can scream "we don't want freedom, we want islam", "death to infidels", "jews to the gas chambers", and other "culturally diverse" messages all the want.
But show a video of them doing so and you're guilty of "hate crimes" by "misrepresenting peaceful islam as a violent religion".
From the Original Catholic Encyclopedia more than 100 years ago:
"In matters political, Islam is a system of despotism at home and aggression abroad. The Prophet commanded absolute submission to the imâm. In no case was the sword to be raised against him. The rights of non-Moslem subjects are of the vaguest and most limited kind, and a religious war is a sacred duty whenever there is a chance of success against the 'Infidel.'"
Sorry, Mr. Dylan, some things haven't changed.

So the pillar of a pony-tailed Euro-hipster's worldview is a quote from the Jewish Bible...
Refreshing - any chance of him influencing Swiss policy towards Israel?
When Europe abandoned Christian values and practices, it created a vacuum that had to be occupied by something. The Islamists have take advantage of that vacuum, and there is nothing to push back against it.
The U.S. is now going through the same process, although the vacuum is being occupied by other belief systems, mostly sexual hedonism expressed as various forms of "rights."
