Seen the photos from Toronto, Brussels, Washington, NY, Paris with those collections of frikkin terrorist supporters, flying Hizballah banners and Nasrallah posters? Funny, just lately I questioned the loyalty of the muslim communities in our midst. But I could never have said say it as eloquently as Mark Steyn:
The pan-Islamists do act. When they hold hands and sing "We Are The World," they mean it. And we're being very complacent if we think they only take over the husks of "failed states" like Afghanistan, Somalia and Lebanon. The Islamists are very good at using the principal features of the modern multicultural democracy -- legalisms, victimology -- to their own advantage. The United Kingdom is, relatively speaking, a non-failed state, but at a certain level Her Majesty's government shares the same problem as their opposite numbers in Beirut: They don't quite dare to move against the pan-Islamists and they have no idea what possible strategy would enable them to do so.
So instead they tackle the symptoms. Excellent investigative work by MI-5 and Scotland Yard foiled this plot, and may foil the next one, and the one after that, and the 10 after that, and the 100 after those. And in the meantime, a thousand incremental inconveniences fall upon the citizen. If you had told an Englishman on Sept. 10, 2001, that within five years all hand luggage would be banned on flights from Britain, he'd have thought you were a kook. If you'd told an Englishwoman that all liquids would be banned except milk for newborn babies that could only be taken on board if the adult accompanying the child drinks from the bottle in front of a security guard, she'd have scoffed and said no one would ever put up with such a ludicrous imposition. But now it's here. What other changes will the Islamists have wrought in another five years?
Time to call a spade a spade. A Pew poll finds one in four British Muslims thinks the 7/7 attacks were justified? My ass. If you are polled on, say, your sexual habits, are you gonna lay it all bare? Unless you are Pamela Anderson, I don't think so. Thus, make that 1/4 a 1/2. It can't go on like this. The mere existence of Islam is an insult to humanity. For its most fierce adherents, there's simply no place in our civilized societies. We need to come to terms with the unpleasant fact that, for starters, the hardliners have to be deported to the shitholes they originate from, manu militari if necessary.
