I’ve said in the past that socialized medicine would significantly reduce the amount of actual medical care provided because there would be a great deal of rationing going on. In general I think that I am still right, but if you need a type of surgery that is tailored for a specific minority group then the surgery doors open right up. For example, British taxpayers funded two dozen hymen replacement procedures for Muslim women in 2005 and 2006.
This doesn’t only happen in Britain. France has had to face this issue as well. Using taxpayer money to pay for something that surgically sidesteps a touchy cultural subject isn’t flying over that well because this surgery is a huge step backwards for feminism.
See, feminism has made it OK for women (and men) to have sex before marriage. Immigrant and native Muslim girls are embracing secularism and having sex at the same ages that their European counterparts are. The problem is obvious to anyone who knows what is going on in Europe; it’s becoming increasingly Islamic.
Islam, as it is currently situated, is still very traditionalistic and a bride’s lack of virginity is not accepted (forget frowned upon). So, what used to be a bell that could not be unrung (the loss of a girl’s virginity) can now be unrung with a little surgery and (sometimes) a little vial of fake blood. But the goodhearted liberals in Europe don’t want to foot the bill for something that is so seventh century.
Quite frankly this is just one more skirmish in this civilizational battle. It is not going to be won with bullets and bombs in Middle Eastern backwaters. It’s going to be won or lost in the streets of London, New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Chicago. Radical mosques funded by Saudi royalty are popping up all over the Western world. Islamic immigrants and the children of those immigrants are increasingly embracing radical Islam as they find out that Western cultures are weak and empty.
Do we really want to live in a culture that whips women for getting gang raped? “Oh, that’s ridiculous. You cannot be serious!” I’m sure that’s what some of you are saying. And in the next ten, fifty, or even one hundred years that specific thing probably won’t happen. But who would have thought they would have been paying for a new hymen for a nineteen-year-old twenty-five years ago? Probably not that many, if any of you, were thinking that.
And what if the authorities found out that a Muslim family performed a female “circumcision” on their daughters. Should we allow that mutilation to go on unanswered?
Our own sacred cow of multiculturalism is going to allow radical Islam to come in through the front door of our culture. We will continue to spend billions of dollars knocking down their actual front doors (do caves have front doors?) but we’re not protecting our own. If we want to continue our way of life we are going to have to make some very significant changes. And I’m not talking about limiting immigration.
Our country has some fundamental flaw(s) that prevent our people from embracing our own culture. The only way we are going to defeat radical Islam is if our culture defeats theirs. Scrapping multiculturalism in schools would be a step in the right direction but we need to do a lot more then that. What that “more” is I don’t know. It’s probably a wide array of things that needs to be done if our culture is going to win out.
Defeating radical Islamic culture in the West is, in my opinion, more important then the armed conflict. If we acquiesce our culture bit by bit then they will win. It’s the only way they can win, really. The question is do we have enough power to defeat their culture? I think we’ll find out once Americans realize we’re in a civilizational struggle with radical Islam. BigT
