So, you are a western couple. You just enjoyed a night out. Then you decide to have a snack before heading home.
Then two men offer you cocaine. These men notice you are eating ham on your pizza. Those two men then decide that you are going to hell, assault you (causing the female member of your group to pass out) and then assault the male by beating him.
Not your usual night out? I wouldn’t think so.
The men were repelled by the restaurants security. Then, through police work they were captured and had their day in court – and convicted. Those men were Muslim – immigrants to the country most likely.
This is where the story gets a bit odd. The headline says the men were jailed. But the last line of the article indicates they were given suspended sentences.
If you are going to discourage a behavior – jail time – and a good amount of it – is required. Even if they served the sentence they were given – 6 months, that seems like a minimal sentence for assault.
Even more disturbing is the fact that had these men not been interrupted – what would they have done to the couple? Killed them for violating someone else’s religious law? Perhaps the last sentence was in reference to the other incident mentioned – where a man attacked a woman for doing her job – which was serving alcohol – even though she was Muslim and it was Ramadan.
Imagine for a second… That it is Christmas. Perhaps you are not wearing festive clothes and two Christians attack you for not being festive enough.
This is the equivalent. It would be dealt with harshly if this happened in the US, and these people who committed these assaults should have harsh sentences to send a message – France is not a Sharia country.
