While Algerian Muslims are enjoying a peaceful Ramadan enforced with bayonets (see below), Swedish Muslims are “trying their best to instill the Islamic values and Ramadanian traditions into their young generations.”
Are any of those Ramadan traditions the ones that inspire radical Muslim Algerians to wage “Jihad against Satan and his followers” during the holy month?
The problem in Sweden and all over the world is that multiculturalism prevents such questions from being asked. Multiculturalists encourage Muslims to preserve and defend “Ramadan traditions” and every other aspect of their tradition, just as they encourage all immigrants to preserve their traditions in their new country and resist assimilation. But it’s in the worst possible taste to suggest that some of those traditions may be inconsistent with traditions in the new country.
But if all Muslims view Ramadan as a peaceful period, why does the Algerian military have its hands full this month?
Meanwhile, in a scene that reminded me of how I used to watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” every December, Swedish Muslims are gathering around the TV for some wholesome Ramadan fare: a 26-part miniseries that “traces back Zionism at all political, economic and religious levels, and unmasking ways used by the Jews to create their ‘fictitious’ entity in Palestinian territories.” Glad to see they’re promoting peace.
