Switzerland is no Germany, they are different for many reasons and one of them is very interesting! Unlike Germany who was ravaged by Muslim attacks every day, the Swiss took action and show to the world that Muslims in their country need to obey their laws or leave!
Swiss authorities rejected the naturalization application of two Muslim girls who refused to take school swimming lessons because boys were present.
USA Today reported that the girls, ages 12 and 14, who live in the northern city of Basel, had applied for Swiss citizenship several months ago, but their request was denied, Swiss media reported.
The girls, whose names were not disclosed, said their religion prevents them from participating in compulsory swimming lessons with males in the pool at the same time. Their naturalization application was rejected because the sisters did not comply with the school curriculum, Basel authorities said.
”Whoever doesn’t fulfill these conditions violates the law and therefore cannot be naturalized,” Stefan Wehrle, president of the naturalization committee, told TV station SRF.
The case shows how those who don’t follow Swiss rules and customs won’t become citizens, even if they have lived in the country for a long time, are fluent in one of the national languages — German, French or Italian — and are gainfully employed.
The European Court of Human Rights upheld the Swiss officials’ decision, rejecting the parents’ argument that the Swiss authorities had violated the “freedom of thought, conscience and religion” guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights, which the court enforces.
Unlike many of their European peers, as well as the United States, the Swiss people have a zero-tolerance policy toward the inability to assimilate. Foreigners who want to set up shop in Switzerland must accept Swiss ways and cultural norms or be tossed out like refuse.
It’s my opinion that the Swiss have it right, unfortunately, we are the land of the “free” which our melting pot is full of all walks of life and we’ve catered (spoiled) to them so they’ve gotten away with their beliefs and feel they have the right to shout and expect Americans to embrace it. We are getting tired of it and now, we’ve become the problem.
Should our country enforce similar laws and follow the Swiss?
