Ramadan in Europe

The European history of ecclesiastical withdrawal from secular politics and from secular intellectual problems to specialized religious spheres is the history of this whole movement from primitive to modern.

And this:

It is hot in Brussels. Ramadan has begun. The faithful in the predominantly Muslim borough of Molenbeek are not allowed to eat or drink from sunrise until sunset. Non-Muslim policemen, patrolling the streets of Molenbeek in their sweltering cars, are not allowed to eat or drink either. As every year during Ramadan, they have been told by their superior, Philippe Moureaux, the Socialist mayor of Molenbeek, that they have to respect Muslim sensitivities and not to “provoke” Muslims by violating Islamic Ramadan restrictions in public. In effect, Islamic or Sharia law is already applied – for everyone – in the Muslim areas of Brussels.

Those wacky socialists.
That is just messed up. It never should have gone that far.

It has gone that far and will go much further. If Europe were still largely Christian I could predict the outcome. But it is not. The only possible results are atheistic brutality or Islamic injustice. I don't like either of those two.

PS: Faahima, am happy to add you to my blog rule if you will do like wise, but let me know if that works for you...or blogs are rather different.

My first reaction was "you gotta be kidding me!!!" That is terrible. I wish I could go enjoy a huge po-boy sandwich in Molenbeek right now! Ham that is.
