[1/9/17] The issue of Muslim immigration has become the focal point for many elections around the globe as a result of the flood of refugees fleeing war-torn nations in the Middle East.
Europe in particular has been hard hit by this crisis, with hundreds of thousands of people swarming into various European nations, stretching resources to the limits and often times causing outbreaks of violence.
While some countries have welcomed these refugees with open arms, and paid the price, other nations are very hesitant to do so. Switzerland is one of these countries, and will not fully integrate Muslims unless they conform to Swiss standards, reported USA Today.
Recently, Switzerland denied naturalization applications from two Muslim girls who refused to take part in swimming lessons because they didn’t want to swim in the same pool as boys.
As part of their school curriculum, the girls had to take part in swim lessons. The girls claimed that their religion prevented them from being in the same pool as males.
