[quote]Where in your post did you distinguish that you were only speaking about Europe because I see no such caveat?
Plus the Muslims use incrementalism. They know they can't implement full Sharia in a new country so they start with small things like suing local diners for the bacon smell in the a...

Now they're just a myth concocted by Fox News and whatever obscure website that is in your link.

Jesus how do people keep failing to understand this sharia thing only applies to some limited financial and contract things. It's like agreeing to the rules of PayPal to use ebay, instead of taking disputes straight to court you agree to a specific set of rules and pre court arbitration. Nobodys get...

If everything is so fine and rosy over there, why does the UKIP exist?

I think it's much closer than last year, when it should have been -5 Hawks.
