Jeg kender kun en religion, som dræber folk for deres tro: Islam.

“One Christian Killed every Five Minutes Worldwide on Religious Faith Grounds says International Conference

A Christian is killed every five minutes somewhere in the world. That was the conclusion of the “International Conference on Inter-religious Dialogue between Christians, Jews and Muslims,” which was held in Hungary. According to Massimo Introvigne representative of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe on Combating Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians, this estimate does not include Christians killed in civil wars or conflicts between countries.”

Koranen er anti-semitisk, så derfor er det vel ikke så underligt:

“The Flemish-language newspaper De Morgen (link only in Flemish) has a major article about a survey of Muslim students in Brussels high schools. The professor who conducted the survey concludes that half “can be described as antisemitic which is a very high rate.’’ Five times higher, in fact, than among Flemish-speaking Belgians, who historically have been relatively anti-Jewish.

Incidentally, what was being measured here was not antagonism toward Israel but traditional anti-Jewish stereotypes. No doubt, the former attitude is even stronger.”

2.-generationsindvandrere er åbenbart meget imod at købe varer, som sælges og produceres af værtslandet. Omvendt vil de gerne købe varer af deres egen etniske gruppe. Det kaldes “forbruger-etnocentrisme”. De fysiske parallelsamfund - Vollsmose, Gellerup, Tingbjerg osv. - suppleres dermed med et økonomisk parallelsamfund, hvor pengestrømme forbliver inden for visse etniske og religiøse cirkler. Udbredt havala-banking er også en del af disse økonomiske parallelsamfund.

Indlendende tekst til rapporten “Consumer Disidentification and Its Effects on Domestic Product Purchases: An Empirical Investigation in the Netherlands”:

“Consumers’ local bias is an important determinant of domestic product purchase behavior. Because of its importance, authors across various disciplines have investigated this phenomenon using the consumer ethnocentrism model. However, the research reported herein demonstrates that such an approach provides an incomplete picture at best. This research provides an initial test of the consumer disidentification (CDI) construct. In contrast with consumer ethnocentrism, the CDI model predicts that consumers’ repulsion toward their domestic country negatively affects the purchase of products made in their domestic country or by domestic firms. The model is tested using survey data from 1534 second-generation immigrants who were born in and live in the Netherlands. Structural equation modeling supports the model and shows that CDI has a significant impact on buying decisions beyond the effect of consumer ethnocentrism. The results further show that for second-generation Turkish immigrants, acculturation and ethnic identification are important predictors of both consumer ethnocentrism and CDI. The article discusses the implications of these findings for research and practice.”

* 71.9 percent were victims because of an offender’s anti-Jewish bias.
* 8.4 percent were victims because of an anti-Islamic bias.

* 3.7 percent were victims because of an anti-Catholic bias.
* 2.7 percent were victims because of an anti-Protestant bias.
* 0.7 percent were victims because of an anti-Atheist/Agnostic bias.
* 8.3 percent were victims because of a bias against other religions (anti-other religion).
* 4.3 percent were victims because of a bias against groups of individuals of varying religions (anti-multiple religions, group). (Based on Table 1.)

Her scale examined how U.S.-born and immigrant Muslims viewed their adherence to Islamic values, and whether they were adopting values of the dominant American culture. The measure was completed by 255 people nationwide. Bagasra found that:

  • 75 percent said most of their friends are Muslim.
  • 68 percent said they’re not willing to marry a non-Muslim.
  • 77 percent expressed a strong desire to raise their children as Muslims.
  • 55 percent said it was either slightly true or not at all true that participating in practices or displaying symbols of American patriotism — such as reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, hanging the American flag or standing up for the national anthem — was important to them.

The scale did find that American Muslims were strongly interested in politics, with almost 81 percent of participants agreeing that voting in local and federal elections is important. The measure also found a willingness to participate in social rituals: Sixty percent said they’re comfortable shaking hands with a member of the opposite sex, and 68 percent said they often eat meals with non-Muslim friends.

Other speakers at the session reported on different aspects of Muslim acculturation in America. They included:

  • Farah Khan, a student at the New York University School of Medicine, who has conducted research with African-American Muslim young adults. She has found that although many feel a need to fit in with peers, they have trouble integrating the religious requirements of their Muslim faith with their ethnic identities as African Americans.
  • Mona M. Amer, PhD, of the American University in Cairo, discussed her finding that Christian Arab Americans show greater cultural adaptation, stronger social support networks and better measures of mental health as compared with Muslim Arab Americans.
  • Paul E. Priester, PhD, of North Park University in Chicago, has found that a 12-minute psychoeducational film shown to self-identified Christian American college students changed their belief that Islam endorses terrorism. However, he found the film did not change the students’ desire to maintain social distance from Muslims.

”Jeg vil tro, at mekanismerne bag de antijødiske holdninger, som man ser i Sverige i dag, er de samme som dem, der er på spil i Danmark – for det stemmer overens med, hvad vi ved fra forskning i en lang række europæiske lande. Men mig bekendt har svenskerne ingen forskning på området. Mit indtryk er, at den debat har svære kår i Sverige,” siger Peter Nannestad.
Hans undersøgelse, der omfatter 1.503 indvandrere samt 300 etniske danskere, viser, at op mod 75 procent af indvandrerne og knap 20 procent af de etniske danskere har antijødiske holdninger.
Undersøgelsen bygger på interview med indvandrere fra fem forskellige grupper i Danmark: tyrkere, pakistanere, somaliere, palæstinensere og eks-jugoslaver.”
