Belgium wants migrants to sign pledge to integrate and swear off terrorism; Leftists enraged
Yet the next time there is a jihad terror attack, many of the Leftists who are decrying this pledge will turn around and blame the Belgian government for not integrating the Muslim immigrants.
“It’s an extra tool for the immigration office to keep some people out of Belgium,” said Didier Vanderslycke from ORBIT, a pro-migrant group. “He said making would-be residents sign a declaration accepting gay rights or equality between men and women suggested that these values were not held by immigrants, and would deepen prejudice against them.”
But…what if they don’t accept gay rights or equality between men and women? Didier Vanderslycke is whistling in the dark, as is all the rest of the politically correct Left. Their willful blindness about Islam and Sharia in pursuit of “diversity” is foolish to the point of suicidal, but they keep charging ahead anyway.
Anyway, a pledge to integrate isn’t really going to be any help, because Muslims who are devout and knowledgeable about Islam will have no problem signing and then ignoring it, but it is a step in the right direction.
