Islamic jihad against dogs

It appears, in Europe, that Islamic groups are attempting to ban dogs from appearing in public. In Islam dogs are “unclean” and, as usual, this religious viewpoint must apparently be respected and adhered to even by those of no or other faiths. Not only has this led to several poisonings of dogs but even attempting to respect their views is unacceptable. One woman said that Muslims shouldn’t apply to work with her because she has a dog. Instead of being grateful for her sensitivity to Islamic culture she had a complaint lodged against her by an anti-discrimination organisation!

Religious rules apply only to members of a religion. One cannot expect someone else to follow the tenets of their religion, especially not when they are based on superstitious nonsense.

EDIT: The Islam Democrats deny calling for a ban on dogs in The Hague and say their words were taken out of context. Though that doesn’t address all the other incidents brought up in the originally-linked post.
