In France, the Catholic churches will become mosques; in England the village pubs will cease serving alcohol; in the Netherlands, the gay nightclubs will close up shop and relocate to San Francisco…The new Europeans will be observant Muslims instead of post-Christian secularists.
So where will the children of the future come from? Increasingly they will come from people who are at odds with the modern world. Such a trend, if sustained could drive human culture off its current market-driven individualistic, modernist course, gradually creating an anti-market culture dominated by fundamentalism – a new Dark Ages.”

I wanted to hear some of your ideas on solutions and, for the sake of argument, chose to accept your/their pov as fact in order to avoid hair-splitting before hearing about potential solutions. If I find some relevant 'factual' discrepancies I'll discuss them. At this point I can't speak to their accuracy or inaccuracy from any position of knowledge.
The NHS should be more accommodating to the religious needs of Muslims. Many Muslims would prefer to see a same-sex doctor for reasons of modesty, but this was often not possible, despite the increasing number of female doctors in the NHS. More information about drug ingredients should also be available to allow Muslim patients to avoid porcine and alcohol-derived drugs.
As the Ohio State Buckeyes pummeled the Northwestern Wildcats on Ryan Field last November, senior Amir Siddiqui and his friends slipped below the bleachers, removed their shoes and knelt on pieces of poster board to pray.
As the sea of purple cheered and jeered above, Siddiqui tuned out the world around him to perform salaat, the Islamic ritual prayer that faithful Muslims recite five times daily.
Siddiqui will do the same in Welsh-Ryan Arena next week when the Buckeyes basketball team goes up against the Wildcats. But rather than pray amid raucous crowds, some Muslim students are pressing Northwestern’s athletic department to set aside a secluded space for the ritual, or grant them permission to come and go from the arena before the buzzer.
“If we attend the game in its entirety, we would miss one of our five daily prayers,” said Siddiqui, president of the Muslim cultural Student Association. “I can leave the game early, come later, or pray somewhere in the stadium on dirty floors with lots of noise and lots of people around, which isn’t a huge problem. But we’d love to have a small area.”
Oh, and seperate drinking fountains, too. Perhaps we could even set aside different places on the bus for different groups.

these things combine to make most medicines fine without rabbinical supervision...
