Waging jihad against Piglet

Here in America, we look west to California to spot the latest trends. But to see the latest fashion in multicultural madness, we'd do better to look east toward Europe. There, a growing Muslim immigrant population is demanding that its new home countries change their infidel ways.

In France, Muslims are fighting a battle over whether a law banning the wearing of religious apparel in public schools could apply to the headscarves worn by Muslim girls. So far, this conflict has remained civil, fought as it should be in the courts.

Not so in the Netherlands, where Muslims opposed to long-standing Dutch liberalism have taken matters into their own hands. Filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was executed by a radical Muslim incensed by the director's depiction of violence against women in Islamic societies. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a member of the Dutch parliament who has been critical of radical Islam, lives in hiding under a number of death threats ? one of which was pinned with a knife to Van Gogh's body.

From England comes a collection of less serious but far more ridiculous examples of the fundamentalist Muslim's need to stamp out anything he deems offensive.

St. George's Cross, a red cross on a white field, has been England's national flag since the 1200s. But now guards at an English prison have been forbidden to wear it for fear it may cause offense. Guards had been wearing lapel pins depicting the flag in support of a cancer charity.

i hope these countries wake up and say your in our country dont like it go home!
