Re: “Winooski Bistro's Bacon Sign Ignites Internet Storm

Having grown up in a business, I really understand and sympathize with Marc Dysinger as well - and even support his decision. And having (with a heavy heart) left Burlington 16 years ago, I can't say that I'm fully up-to-date on the changes in Winooski. However, the problem is what happens when decisions like Marc's are multiplied hundreds of times. Whether it's through violence, demanding accommodations for sharia law application, shout-downs at forums for "co-existence" -- or calling for bacon signs to be taken down and non-Muslim symbols to be removed, Muslims are aiming for world domination on their terms. What we see as mutual respect and good-neighborliness is perceived by them as yielding and deferential -- qualities that aren't exactly valued in their world. It is painful saying this; as an Orthodox Jew living in Burlington, I was never offended by the majority culture, and loved the opportunity in the Burlington area to meet and learn from a variety of people. However, living outside the Chittenden County bubble, I see how important each individual decision such as Marc's can be in safeguarding what we cherish or losing it all.
