The International Political Thread

The Dutch get it...

Netherlands abandoning multiculturalism

Quote:
Famously progressive and permissive Holland has tried multiculturalism and decided that it just doesn’t work. In a historic reversal, the Dutch are abandoning government policies in support of multiculturalism and demanding intregration and acceptance of Dutch values from immigrants, mostly Muslims, who now constitute 6 percent of their population.
M'bold.

Yep and unless Canada smartens up, we too will pay a terrible price for out ignorance in promoting this.

Promoting it as a policy is simply nuts, a legacy of Pierre Trudeau. It is an entirely different issue from tolerance and respect.

Very interesting read.

Saudi Arabia may go broke before the US oil industry buckles

Quote:
If the oil futures market is correct, Saudi Arabia will start running into trouble within two years. It will be in existential crisis by the end of the decade.

The contract price of US crude oil for delivery in December 2020 is currently $62.05, implying a drastic change in the economic landscape for the Middle East and the petro-rentier states.

Barbarism: In Northern Rural Indian Village, Two Young Girls Are Sentenced by a Council of Elders To be Raped As Punishment For Their Brother Running Off With a Married Woman From a Higher Caste

Quote:
The girls -- and the brother -- are of the lowest class, the so-called "untouchables."

The brother had an affair with a married woman from a higher caste, the "Jat" caste. Their love forbidden, they ran off together.

The Jat family feels humiliated, and wants vengeance for this.

I'm with you, FeXL! We should not allow a bunch of unelected, highly conservative, cultural fundamentalists to enforce backward cultural traditions regarding marriage.

I'll have your pride flag and gay marriage rights package in the mail tomorrow.

Welcome aboard, big boy!

You talk about insensitive comments. Equating disagreement with gay marriage to child rape hits a new low.

Interestingly, this time I pulled a CM. I posted sans comment. You have no idea where I stand on this.

However, if you are truly "with" me, then you would be fully in favour of having the whole council shot at dawn...

Agreed. And he gives me hell when I post a perfectly relevant comment on one of his precious threads...
