In a bizarre turn of events, Switzerland, the country which has tried its best to remain neutral in past world conflicts and events, is taking a stand against Muslim migrants who refuse to accept their culture. Instead of giving in to the requests of the migrants, as so many countries have done, Switzerland instead has set down an ultimatum: accept our culture or get out.

One strict example that demonstrates the seriousness with which Swiss take assimilation occurred in a school swimming pool. Two Muslim girls whose applications for citizenship were currently undergoing review refused to get into the water during a school swim lesson because there were boys in the water.

The girls were ages 12 and 14 and were trying to get citizenship in the Swiss city of Basel. But because they refused to get in the water their applications for citizenship were rejected.

"Whoever doesn’t fulfill these conditions," speaking of the school curriculum, "violates the law and therefore cannot be naturalized," said the president of the Swiss naturalization committee.

Other instances have occurred in Switzerland, with similar results.

Some time ago two brothers refused to shake the hand of their Swiss teacher, citing religious differences that forbade shaking hands. In Swiss culture, shaking hands is a sign of respect and is mandatory. The boys were suspended from becoming Swiss citizens for their refusal.

Other situations have cropped up in Switzerland, all leading to the same result: denial of citizenship.

While Switzerland is taking giant leaps forward in forcing migrants to assimilate to its culture, we must be careful not to lose sight of the fact that religious liberties in America are much greater than in many European countries. And those liberties have constantly helped good, well-meaning people throughout our history.

That being said, if Muslim migrants begin to enter our country and demand changes to our policies, programs or infrastructure because of their religion, perhaps we should take a page from the Swiss and simply say, no.
