The city of Oslo has appointed a sharia-supportin’ gay-bashin’ woman-oppressin’ culture enricher as the chairman of the committee tasked with planning Norway’s annual Constitution Day celebrations.
It’s not clear how the average Norwegian feels about this arrangement, but Stop the Islamization of Norway (SIAN) has filed an official complaint with the municipal authorities in Oslo.
Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has translated an article about SIAN’s protest. He includes this introductory note:
This article was originally posted at SIAN’s official website a couple of days ago. It deals with the newly-appointed Mohammedan chairman of the 17th of May Committee in Oslo. As you probably already know, Norwegians celebrate their Constitution Day on May 17 each year.
This celebration has a long and proud history, and Norwegians celebrate it with so much fanfare and pomp (at least that was the way it used to be BMC — before Multiculturalism) that politically correct Swedes have labeled it racist, nationalistic, semi-Nazi etc. Other less confused individuals consider it a fascinating and positive manifestation of national pride.
However, as is the case with any Norwegian custom and tradition, it now has to be deconstructed and rammed through the multicultural sieve. Hence the chairmen of the 17th of May committee have in recent times been ‘new Norwegians’ and often of the more culturally enriching kind.
The translated article from SIAN:
Sultan has opinions that are incompatible with the values that the17th of May represents
In a unanimous decision reached at SIAN’s annual general assembly, the organization is urging the Mayor of Oslo to take appropriate actions.
“It is our belief that no one who espouses such views should be a member or appointed as the leader of the 17th of May Committee in Oslo. Sultan has opinions that are in direct conflict with the spirit and principles that our national holiday represents.”
In the letter that SIAN (Stop the Islamization of Norway) has sent to the mayor of Oslo, Fabian Stang, the Oslo City Council and the Culture and Education Committee (Kultur- og utdanningskomiteen), the organization urges the mayor to take appropriate actions.
The letter is published below in its entirety:
At the annual general assembly which was held on March, 15, 2013 it was unanimously agreed to submit the following statement to the Oslo City Council:
Opposition to the appointment of an Islamist as the Chairman of the 17th of May Committee
The Culture and Education Committee in Oslo has appointed Shoaib Sultan as the chairman of this year’s 17th of May Committee. In a response to this appointment we would like to point out that the Committee has thus chosen a well-known individual who has a prominent position in the Islamic Ummah — and who consequently promotes values that are in direct conflict with the spirit and the principles that the17th of May represents.
Shoaib Sultan embraces Islam — which does not recognize democracy, freedom of speech and freedom of religion, which allows the stoning of women, and which forbids Muslim women from marrying Norwegian men. Sultan embraces a totalitarian political-religious system — which is quite obviously incompatible with traditional Norwegian and Western values, as is clearly shown in Islamic states that have implemented the social model that Shoaib Sultan is advocating.
Shoaib Sultan has demonstrated that he has, as far as it is possible for him within our democracy, promoted the Islamization of Norway. As the head of the Islamic Council of Norway, he has refused to condemn the killing of gays. He has advocates the Islamic practice of halal slaughter (cruelty towards animals). Furthermore he advocates religiously motivated fasting rituals requiring citizens in a secular society not to follow normal nourishment practices. He also maintains that the Islamic sharia is a positive law.
Sultan is also a strong supporter of restricting freedom of speech in matters related to the prophet Muhammad. In his capacity as one of the leaders of Anti-Racist Centre (antirasistisk senter), he is also systematically monitoring SIAN’s anti-Islamic activities. This involves the meticulous recording of our work, which the Police Security Service refuses to investigate, to his indignation, despite the fact that SIAN stays well within the boundaries of the law.
Shoaib Sultan also posted a comment on his Facebook account saying that — had it not been for the fact that it would be environmental pollution — he (Shoaib) would have suggested that SIAN-members be buried [alive — translator] in the fields.
In our opinion a person with such attitudes is not fit to be a member, or the Chairman, of the 17th of May Committee in Oslo. We respectfully ask the mayor to take the appropriate actions. Those who are going to celebrate this day in Oslo should be in a position to demand that the current administrative figurehead shares the values which are inextricably linked with our national holiday, the 17th of May.
