Time to stand up against the fanatics

Hardly a day goes by without someone somewhere in the Islamist world taking offence about something somebody has written, said or done. From the publication of the Satanic Verses in the UK, the cartoons about Mohamed in some obscure Danish newspaper, a woman wanting Itjihad (reform) or the blog of a 14 year old girl simply wanting an education, fanatics in ones, twos or hordes seek to repress, censor maim or murder.

At the end of December a rather strange and disturbing article appeared in the Huffington Post by a "journalist" called Alistair Sloan who mused:

I am no apologist for terrorists, their acts are medieval and immoral.

But (!)

... it is not wise to give angry young men with capability of doing great harm reason to hate you, especially if they are trained by evil and wealthy men.

Err, what does that mean exactly?

Anne Marie Waters puts this comment in perspective:

So, we spend our lives appeasing and accommodating "angry men" irrespective of their demands? How can we give to demands which oppose each other for example? We are left with very limited options if we are never allowed to make anyone angry, and are people ever responsible for their own actions when they become angry?

Harry's Place carries an article about Taslima Nasreen, the author of Shame, a book about the violence of Bangladeshi Muslims against Hindu's which got her driven out of her country into hiding in India. She makes a similar observations:

“Muslim sentiments are very precious…So Muslim fanatics have the right to ban films, books, or whatever they like before they even read or watch [them]”

“Will they be able to make fanatics happy? I do not think so. Fanatics will go as far as they can.”

“Democracy, women’s rights and free speech hurt the sentiments of fanatics. If you want to live a civilized life, you’ve got to hurt their thingies”


Its not as if they care about anyone else, even the rights of their own people. 
A 10-year-old girl, who was detained in Afghanistan for wearing explosives, says she was forced to wear a suicide jacket by her Taliban commander brother.

Afghan soldiers spotted the girl, known as Spozhmay, wearing a suicide jacket in southern Helmand province....

My brother Zahir and his friend Jabar forced me to wear the suicide vest," she told police.

Her charming brother is a commander in the Islamist terrorist organisation, the Taliban.

Why should I or anyone else worry about hurting the feelings (if they really have any) of people who are prepared to sacrifice children in the name of their misbegotten "faith".

Time to stand up against these fanatics and their all too common appeasers on the left.

Give them the the Sudetenland and.........
