The enemy within

The groundswell in Europe is emphatically in favor of the democratic Swiss ban on minarets. Polls taken everywhere reveal huge majorities in support of such a ban in other countries. Italy is likely to hold a similar referendum soon. In response and panic, the mainstream media is reporting only the utterances of those not in favor, such as the UN and Daniel Cohn-Bendit, appallingly short human tick and co-president of the Greens in the European Parliament (CO-president, so democratic). Like the Turks, Cohn-Bendit has called on rich Muslims to empty their bank accounts in Switzerland in retaliation for Sunday's referendum. Cohn-Bendit is the archenemy within. Like so many of his ilk, after attending a secondary school for children of the upper middle class he started out red and later turned green. Like so many of his ilk he likes to molest children, once having taken a job in a kindergarten specifically for the purpose. Like so many of his ilk he also likes writing books about his own ever-so-fascinating life. "On several occasions certain kids would open my fly and start to stroke me. I reacted differently according to circumstances, but their desire posed a problem for me. I asked them: 'Why don't you play together? Why have you chosen me, and not the other kids?' But if they insisted, I caressed them still", he once wrote. So why is he sitting in the European Parliament aiding the downfall of civilization instead of sitting in prison?

In the picture, Cohn-Bendit can be seen talking about size to a class of small boys.
