Mark Steyn

Mark Steyn: "British Muslims fear repercussions over tomorrow's train bombing."

Mark Steyn on Sudan:

Two years ago, you may recall, Sudan was elected to the UN Human Rights Commission at a time when the government’s proxies were busy slaughtering and gang-raping their way round Darfur. The last thing one needs when one’s got a hectic schedule of mass murder on one’s plate is a lot of tedious paper-shuffling committee meetings in New York, but Sudan’s ambassador, Elfatih Mohammed Ahmed Erwa, gamely rose to the occasion by announcing, upon joining the Commission, that he was very concerned about human rights abuses at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib."
Do you suppose the concepts are related? Nah, that would presuppose something else Steyn said:
In the scheme of things, launching a plot to behead the Prime Minister of Canada would not seem to be an obvious priority. No doubt they would have preferred to behead the President of the United States. But no problem. We are all infidels.

The multicultural society posits that each of its citizens can hold a complementary portfolio of identities: one can simultaneously be Canadian and Jamaican and gay and Anglican and all these identities can exist within your corporeal form in perfect harmony. But, for most Western Muslims, Islam is their primary identity, and for a significant number thereof, it's a primary identity that exists in opposition to all others. That's merely stating the obvious. But, of course, to state the obvious is unacceptable these days, so our leaders prefer to state the absurd. I believe the old definition of a nanosecond was the gap between a New York traffic light changing to green and the first honk of a driver behind you. Today, the definition of a nanosecond is the gap between a Western terrorist incident and the press release of a Muslim lobby group warning of an impending outbreak of Islamophobia."

"Today, the definition of a nanosecond is the gap between a Western terrorist incident and the press release of a Muslim lobby group warning of an impending outbreak of Islamophobia."

Well this is certainly true but if as we believe the Islamic Threat is not going to diminish or disappear because it is rooted in the sheer dysfunctionality of most Muslim societies, then avoidance can only go so far.

Sooner or later the you-know-what will hit the fan and then there will have been no real 'analysis' of why militant' Islam might be somewhat 'problematical'. There will have been no inoculation so to speak. No warm up period, where some conditions might have been altered to prevent the worse case scenario.

At that point, the might well be a whole new definition of Islamophobia. The neo-barbarians are doing well now only because they are playing on their home-field, and most of us consider them a bush-league problem. So dreary of them to be so 'annoying', don't you know.

Should they actually manage someday to advance to the 'bigs', that will likely be the worst day they ever had. Or possibly ever will have, come to that.

Preventing a necessary discussion now is only magnifying the pain of a later 'review'.
