Jan Sobieski’s Memory Betrayed?

Over at the Islam in Europe blog it has been revealed that Poland is preparing to make a range of legal concessions to Muslims. It states:

Polish Muslims will be granted the right to take days off on Muslim holidays, Muslim marriages contracted in a mosque will have equal status to civil marriages and Muslim clergymen will be able to issue "halal" certificates, confirming that a product is permissible according to Islamic custom.” [1]

Jan Sobieski and his winged hussars may have played a vital role in turning the tide of Muslim Ottoman expansionism at the Second Siege of Vienna in 1683, but it seems that his descendents feel sufficiently complacent vis-à-vis the Islamisation of Europe to make Muslims feel completely at home in Poland. One would have thought that the experience of other countries within the EU such as the UK, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Germany, would have shown Poland that making Islamic colonisers welcome is not a good idea. What would Jan Sobieski and his men have thought of this? Pity the Poles for the grave mistake that their politicians are about to make.
