WHEN WILL WE SEE THE END OF BLIND MULTICULTURALISM?

From time-to-time I visit Boudica BPI Weblog. With respect to certain subjects, boudicabpi will generally have the latest information. Islam is one of the subjects, and here is the latest, LOOK AT THIS MESS, THIS IS OBAMA’S BIG OL’ ISLAMIC TAKEOVER. AKA ARAB SPRING!

Is the Arab Spring more or less predictably fading into an Islamist Winter?

Egypt’s two leading Islamist parties said on Sunday their separate party lists secured about three-quarters of votes cast in the second round of a parliamentary election, extending their lead in the three-stage vote. (continued here)

The latest news seems to indicate as much. Fortunately, with two leading Islamist parties in Egypt, the near future may bring more Islamist on Islamist fighting than Islamist on non-Muslim fighting. Yet if you are an Egyptian Coptic Christian, the Islamist on Islamist fighting may not bring much relief. That is because where Islamists find unity is in their hatred of non-Muslims. Even Time Magazine cannot ignore the Christian persecution in Egypt, Fearing Persecution, Egypt’s Christians Back Parties Most Likely to Beat Islamists. Nonetheless, other sources better describe the full extent of the persecution, Human Rights Activist Tells of Coptic Christians’ Plight in Egypt.

Reading all this I began to wonder: is this the end of Multiculturalism?

mul·ti·cul·tur·al·ism
   [muhl-tee-kuhl-cher-uh-liz-uhm, muhl-tahy-] noun

  1. the state or condition of being multicultural
  2. the preservation of different cultures or cultural identities within a unified society, as a state or nation.

Looking at the definition, one would think not. Yet that definition hardly explains the question. That is because what we currently practice is blind multiculturalism.

Multiculturalism is great. Blind multiculturalism can get us into trouble.

The missing distinction is mutuality. It’s great to tolerate other religions or ethnic customs if the people following those religions and customs also tolerate ours. It is self-inflicted abuse to tolerate them when they do not tolerate ours. And it is cultural suicide to tolerate a religion that actively tries to undermine or destroy ours. (from here)

So is this the end of Blind Multiculturalism? Probably not. Because our public school system has so ingrained this blindness into so many, the blindness will persist. That’s one we have seen so many articles with this title “The End of Multiculturalism”.

The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
Mark Twain

When people report the news, they often report more than they know.

  1. If Egypt doesn’t want it, we can’t sustain it. You can’t force an effective alliance on another country. But the point that brought me in on this thread was the implicit idea that US policy could have prevented the ouster of despots in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt. My perception is that those movements were going to happen no matter how much we might dislike some elements of the popular will in those countries. Our policy was not to get caught on the bad side of history on these. I submit for consideration that no US administration of either major political party would have done anything differently. I’ll leave it at that.

  2. Scout – Our alliance with Israel has proven troublesome, but there are times when there is no easy answer. From a purely rational perspective, it would have been better if the Jews had not returned to Israel. They did. Now we have the choice of doing nothing or watching another holocaust.

    Anyway, I see you are trying to change the subject. We did in fact have an alliance with Egypt, one that contributed to peace between Israel and Egypt. And that has now become a very tentative thing.

  3. We have no substantial alliances in the Middle East these days other than Israel. Should we follow Washington’s advice on that one? If not, how is that different?
