Swiss deny citizenship to Muslim girls who balked at swimming with boys

GENEVA — In the latest move to deny citizenship to those who balk at Swiss culture, authorities rejected the naturalization application of two Muslim girls who refused to take school swimming lessons because boys were present.

The girls, ages 12 and 14, who live in the northern city of Basel, had applied for Swiss citizenship several months ago, but their request was denied, Swiss media reported Tuesday.

The girls, whose names were not disclosed, said their religion prevents them from participating in compulsory swimming lessons with males in the pool at the same time. Their naturalization application was rejected because the sisters did not comply with the school curriculum, Basel authorities said.

    Slowly but inexorably the pushbacj begins. Soon deportation procedures should be started. I’mean quite sure they’ll fit in just fine in the Gulf states

    The Swiss have been a rarity in Europe, consistently voting against excessive immigration and stupid diversity. The country allows national referenda, which can be very informative.

    I don’t think they should be given citizenship and that we should do the same here. But, you must admit that swimming with MUSLIM boys can be dangerous as has been proven in Germany and other places where uncivilized migrants have settled.

      First incident or inappropriate remark, the muslim boys can be banned from the pool.

    Barack is going to punish Switzerland. He is still in office for six more months and he will go after any country that is not sharia compliant.
