PEARL HARBOR DAY
Received this morning – felt it worthy of passing on to viewers who might be interested. Struck me as to how it appears to relate to the many difficulties the USA is experiencing as a result of politically motivated immigration to disrupt and confuse the differences between “RIGHTS”, “PRIVILEGES”, “PREFERENCES”, etc. within this freedom born and loving country.
Finally understand how normal life expectancy plays a critical role in their rewriting and perversion of true history. Once those who were physically present and knew the truth from the special interest propaganda that is intentionally spread to confuse and change issues for the invading forces are gone, who will stand against an anti USA position and scream from the top of their lungs:
“THIS IS A LIE AGAINST LEGITIMATE CITIZENS* OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THEIR COLLECTIVE INTERESTS IN PRESERVING FREEDOM”
then again, who will be here to receive and understand such a warning – much less care?
Yup, beginning to understand how natural death might be embraced after conversion into a stranger while in your own home.
* Please appreciate that race, ethnicity, culture, religion, etc. has little to do with being a LEGITIMATE CITIZEN.
My best to you and yours, Lew
Subject: Switzerland — What’s in a Handshake?
Wake up people!
At first glance this may seem like a trivial story, but what lies hidden beneath it could have serious consequences for our children and grandchildren.
In Switzerland it has long been customary for students to shake the hands of their teachers at the beginning and end of the school day. It’s a sign of solidarity and mutual respect between teacher and pupil, one that is thought to encourage the right classroom atmosphere. Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga recently felt compelled to further explain that shaking hands was part of Swiss culture and daily life.
And the reason she felt compelled to speak out about the handshake is that two Muslim brothers, aged 14 and 15, who have lived in Switzerland for several years (and thus are familiar with its mores), in the town of Therwil, near Basel, refused to shake the hands of their teacher, a woman, because, they claimed, this would violate Muslim teachings that contact with the opposite sex is allowed only with family members.
At first the school authorities decided to avoid trouble, and initially granted the boys an exemption from having to shake the hand of any female teacher. But an uproar followed, as Mayor Reto Wolf explained to the BBC: “the community was unhappy with the decision taken by the school. In our culture and in our way of communication a handshake is normal and sends out respect for the other person, and this has to be brought home to the children in school.”
Therwil’s Educational Department reversed the school’s decision, explaining in a statement on May 25 that the school’s exemption was lifted because “the public interest with respect to equality between men and women and the integration of foreigners significantly outweighs the freedom of religion.” It added that a teacher has the right to demand a handshake. Furthermore, if the students refused to shake hands again “the sanctions called for by law will be applied,” which included a possible fine of up to 5,000 dollars.
This uproar in Switzerland, where many people were enraged at the original exemption granted to the Muslim boys, did not end after that exemption was itself overturned by the local Educational Department. The Swiss understood quite clearly that this was more than a little quarrel over handshakes; it was a fight over whether the Swiss would be masters in their own house, or whether they would be forced to yield, by the granting of special treatment, to the Islamic view of the proper relations between the sexes. It is one battle small ,but to the Swiss significant between overweening Muslim immigrants and the indigenous Swiss.
Naturally, once the exemption was withdrawn, all hell broke loose among Muslims in Switzerland . The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland, instead of yielding quietly to the Swiss decision to uphold the handshaking custom, criticized the ruling in hysterical terms, claiming that the enforcement of the handshaking is “totalitarian” (!) because its intent is to “forbid religious people from meeting their obligations to God.”
That, of course, was never the “intent” of the long-standing handshaking custom, which was a nearly-universal custom in Switzerland , and in schools had to do only with encouraging the right classroom atmosphere of mutual respect between instructor and pupil, of which the handshake was one aspect.
The Swiss formulation of the problem weighing competing claims will be familiar to Americans versed in Constitutional adjudication. In this case “the public interest with respect to equality” of the sexes and the “integration of foreigners” (who are expected to adopt Swiss ways, not force the Swiss to exempt them from some of those ways) were weighed against the “religious obligations to God” of Muslims, and the former interests found to outweigh the latter.
What this case shows is that even at the smallest and seemingly inconsequential level, Muslims are challenging the laws and customs of the Infidels among whom they have been allowed to settle [i.e., stealth jihad toward sharia dominance]. Each little victory, or defeat, will determine whether Muslims will truly integrate into a Western society or, instead, refashion that society to meet Muslim requirements.
The handshake has been upheld and, what’s more, a stiff fine now will be imposed on those who continue to refuse to shake hands with a female teacher. This is a heartening sign of non-surrender by the Swiss. But the challenges of the Muslims within Europe to the laws and customs of the indigenes have no logical end and will not stop.
And the greater the number of Muslims allowed to settle in Europe, the stronger and more frequent their challenges will be. They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society, and eventually, through sheer force of numbers from both migration and by outbreeding the Infidels, to fashion not a parallel society but one society now dominated by Muslim sharia.
(The Muslims have no intention of assimilating into any non-Muslim society because their religion forbids it. The Western Countries had better wake up and start deporting the Muslims before a it is too late. The Muslims have a Master Plan for World Domination, but the Western Countries currently have no Master Plan for defending against it. – BKJ)
The Swiss handshaking dispute has received some, but not enough, press attention. Presumably, it’s deemed too inconsequential a matter to bother with. But the Swiss know better. And so should we.
There’s an old Scottish saying that in one variant reads: “Many a little makes a mickle.” That is, the accumulation of many little things leads to one big thing. That’s what’s happening in Europe today. This was one victory for the side of sanity. There will need to be a great many more.
This needs circulation far and wide. Hopefully the U.S. can learn before it’s too late. In fact, some schools in the U.S. are now letting Muslim male students bring and use their prayer rugs, but we can’t have prayer in our schools?
