 The usual measures of successful integration into a new society—the decline of segregated neighborhoods, a rise in levels of education and income—may not apply to Europe’s Muslim immigrants, according to a new study from a German research center. Drawing on 1990s data from the United Kingdom’s Fourth National Survey of Ethnic Minorities, the report’s authors find that religious identity has persisted more among Muslims in Britain than among other ethnic and religious minorities, and that Muslims have integrated more slowly. Neither education nor the amount of time spent in Britain appears to have weakened Islamic identity. The authors found no evidence that the formation of Islamic identity was strengthened in segregated neighborhoods; if anything, living in an integrated neighborhood appeared to reinforce a strong Islamic identity, as did higher incomes, better job qualifications, and mixed-work environments (defined as places where English is spoken). In other words, even if Muslim immigrants are well-educated, well-paid, and living and working among non-Muslims, the “intense and oppositional identities” that stoke Europe’s current religious and cultural tensions may persist.

Anger over plan to broadcast Muslim call to prayer on loudspeaker in Oxford

Hvordan det vil komme til at lyde, kan man høre  her.
 

Muslim plans to broadcast a loudspeaker call to prayer from a city centre mosque have been attacked by local residents who say it would turn the area into a “Muslim ghetto”.Dozens of people packed out a council meeting to express their concerns over the plans for a two-minute long call to prayer to be issued three times a day, saying that it could drown out the traditional sound of church bells.

 In The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon wrote that if the Muslims had won the Battle of Poitiers, “the Arabian fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mahomet.” Well, this may come to pass after all, before too long.

Stakkels  teologidoktorens  børn. Hendes  femårige er nok også underrettet om bierne- og blomsterne-bluffen og hvad med Jesus og Vorherre ? Den festlige og eventyrlige  kvinde er forfatter til “”Onani, homosexualitet och den heliga kärnfamiljen“. Man bør vælge  sine  forældre med  omhu.

Den stora bluffen : Ann Heberlein förstår inte varför det är så viktigt att barn skall tro på tomten.

Den där stora röda gubben med skägg dyker upp överallt: på köpcenter, i radio, på dagis och simskoleavslutningar. Vuxenvärlden är förenade i en gigantisk konspiration i syfte att övertyga alla under sju år om att jultomten finns på riktigt. Det är en synnerligen välorganiserad och effektiv komplott som både postverk och statstelevision deltar i. Alla är med i den stora tomtebluffen och en gång om året är det inte bara tillåtet utan närmast en plikt att ljuga för sina barn.

Jag måste erkänna att jag inte förstår varför det är så viktigt att barn skall tro på tomten. Därför har jag brutalt berättat för mina barn om att tomten inte finns, något som upprör min femåriga dotter. Hon vägrar att tro på mig: Alla andra säger ju att han finns! Triumferande berättade hon att jultomten (den riktige) minsann varit på dagis och gett alla barnen godis. När jag upplyste henne om att det var skolans vaktmästare som klätt ut sig fnös hon. Hon har nästan övertygat mig: kanske finns tomten ändå.

The Netherlands commemorates Dr Fuat Deniz
og kritikken af svensk politi optrappes.

On Sunday 23 December the Assyrians in the Netherlands commemorated the murder of the Assyrian sociologist Dr Fuat Deniz at the Sunday mass in the eight churches of the Syriac Orthodox Church. Together with a thousand faithful, the Archbishop of the Syriac Orthodox Church in the Netherlands, Mor Polycarpus Augin, participated in the mass at the Mor Kuryakos Church in Enschede. In his sermon he spoke about the great loss of Dr Fuat Deniz, as one of the first community members who reached high academic achievements in the lands of diaspora.

Mor Polycarpus noted: “We notice that there are still dark powers that want to hurt our people and that want to make an end to its enlightenment. This does not occur only in our ancestral homelands but also in the lands of diaspora; in the lands of freedom and democracy. The late Fuat Deniz, was a senior lecturer at Örebro University. People who have wanted to stop his speech, put a knife on his throat and took away his blood and that of Suryoyutho. The dark powers expected to silence Fuat through putting a knife on his throat – not knowing that his voice will only strengthen that of his brothers among future generation Assyrians/Syriacs.” Following these words, Mor Polycarpus expressed his trust that the younger generation Assyrians/Syriacs will continue in the footsteps of Dr Fuat Deniz.

After the mass, hundreds of people gathered in the hall of Mor Kuryakos church where Mor Polycarpus, together with Christian Democrats Parliamentarian Pieter Omzigt and Sabri Atman (director Seyfo Center) spoke to the audience. In relation to Fuat’s murder and the fear following from that, Mr. Omzigt said that the murder may have a political motive. He therefore urged on the people present to report to the police if they had ever been intimidated or threatened, in order to be able to problemize this aspect politically in the Dutch Parliament. Mr. Atman stressed Fuat Deniz’s efforts in support of creating a democratic society and a society where people care about each other. For Atman, ‘caring for each other’ is therefore a precondition in order to follow in Fuat Deniz’s footsteps.
