His yodeling offended his Muslim next-door neighbors because of the similarity between his yodeling and the Muslim call to prayer.
The offender had the apparent misfortune to begin yodeling while the Muslim couple was in the middle of their Islamic prayers. As a result, bingo, he’s been found guilty of a crime and fined over $1000 for practicing an ancient Austria custom, first developed centuries ago as a means of communication in the Central Alps.
So this man was fined for being in a good mood while on his own private property because his Muslim neighbors didn’t like it. Yodeling has now become a crime in Austria for one reason and one reason only: if offends Muslims. Good thing Christopher Plummer and the von Trapp family left when they did. They’d get kicked out of their own country for doing their gig today, not by the Nazis but by the Muslims.
Sharia law is no longer creeping. It’s rapidly advancing by leaps and bounds, shredding Western values and traditions along the way. Sharia law now has a favored position in Austria even over native Austrian customs practiced by native Austrian citizens.
Anybody else want to join the “No more mosques, period” campaign?
