Quickies: A Heartwarming Event

     Just recently, Muslim immigrants to Dorval, Quebec, a suburb of Montreal, did what Muslim immigrants to First World countries always seem to do: they demanded that their new home make changes to accommodate their savage religion. In this particular case, the issue was pork products on the menus of the Dorval public schools’ canteens. The Muslims, of course, demanded that they be removed, no doubt expecting some sort of concession to their arrogance.

     Here’s what happened instead:

     Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb.

     The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why.

     "Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, and its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate.

     "Muslims must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec. They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who so generously welcomed them.

     "Muslims must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic. Canada accepted many immigrants before Muslims showed up (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants).

     "Just like other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity or their culture."

     BRAVO! Of course, Canadians’ lives would have been simpler and far safer had they never agreed to accept Muslim immigrants in the first place, but some lessons take a lot more learning than others. At least the mayor of Dorval didn’t start trying to “negotiate” with those Muslim parents. He didn’t offer to “split the difference,” or build them separate facilities where their demands would be accommodated. He came straight out and said what far too few Western politicians have dared to say: “You came to live among us. Therefore, it’s you who must make any adjustments.”

     We could use a few like that mayor down here.

More than a few. But a few in the right places would surely help.

Amen to that.

Forgive me if I have posted this before, but it speaks to this post:

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, birthplace or origin.
But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
