Muslim students exempted from shaking female teacher’s hand in Swiss district

GENEVA (AFP) – Some male Muslim students in Switzerland will no longer need to shake hands with their female teachers, following a ruling that has caused an uproar and consternation in the country.

Education authorities in the northern Swiss municipality of Therwil, in the canton of Basel-Country, reached the controversial decision after two male students complained that the Swiss custom of shaking hands with the teacher is counter to their religious beliefs if the teacher is a woman.

    Why do they submit? This is the camel’s nose under the tent. Fools.

    • The Swiss are often far more sensible than Europe in general, this decision is odd.

      • No, there are elements in Switzerland that are aware of the danger of Islam (led by UDC-SVP) – but there are also a large segment of the population very open to Islam, Immigration, etc., and this is led by the Socialist party, but also includes so-called centrist parties, and the main media, etc. (usual suspects).

    It’s Switzerland or Sharia, and the #$%$ have chosen Sharia.

    Whoever made this ruling needs to be hanged, and those students and their entire families need to be deported.

    • I hope it can be overturned.

    • Actually, it is one school district in Basel. Most schools do not accept this, as it is demeaning to female teachers.

    Hmmm, she won’t have to touch a muslim….isn’t that good news that she doesn’t have to pretend she approves a misogynistic death-cult and child-bride paedophilia.

      Also there is always the possibility that offering her hand to a Muslim male will be seen as wanting to have sex with him.

    But they’re OK with touching the women to grope, slap, punch and rape them. That’s cool. No problem there. The educators who made this decision are brain-dead dhimmis. Europe is lost.

    • Good point, lol. Shows their utter hypocrisy. They pretend to be so ‘pure’ as not to touch women, but they’re really rapists. The common ground of these two things is – misogyny.

        They are supremacists. There is no concept of hypocrisy in islam.

      Why women keep voting for these leftist idiots who will help Muslims to destroy them?

      • Editor

        I’ve been looking for an answer to that question for years. Virtue signaling and the welfare state? So they can feel superior to “bigoted, uneducated” right-wingers and be “strong and independent” single mothers while on government assistance?

    That allah-bot hand could recently have been in some nasty places with no subsequent washing.

    As they used to say in Chinatown, “You bettah off.”

  • Ed

    When muslims rape women, how do they manage to avoid touching them?

    I’m so glad I got to see the Matterhorn.

    Yep, keep up that appeasing and accomodating and see where it gets ya.

  • moraywatson

    “Handjob”, no. Rape, yes. Islam allows mohammedans to touch kaffir women. Just not respectfully.

  • Minicapt

    Where’s that hadith which requires a Mohammedan male to chop off the hand with which he shook the hand of a female? And is there one requiring the other hand be removed, lest it happen again?
