The Price of Being Islamically Correct

Mark Steyn of the Chicago Sun Times comments on the latest wave of Poor Impulse Control in the Islamic World in an article titled 'Sensitivity' Can Have Brutal Consequences. In part he says:

Say what you like about the Islamic world, but they show tremendous initiative and energy and inventiveness, at least when it comes to threatening death to the infidels every 48 hours for one perceived offense or another. If only it could be channeled into, say, a small software company, what an economy they'd have.

My thought exactly. Why is it they have only three solutions to any and every problem?

1. Sack and burn the offices!
2. Kidnap and/or execute someone!
3. Blow up something!

Why? Because that's all they need to intimidate the "enlightened" sensibilities of the Western world into compliance with Sharia. Get out yer veils and throw away yer driver's license, gals, because unless the West grows a backbone soon, we'll all be sittin' at home watching the paint on the windowpanes dry.

Update: Another well-written article in the Boston newspaper We Are All Danes Now.

Well said, as usual. Methinks the Muslims ought to try anger management.

Sure would spice up the eye-rollingly maddening boring mind numbing corporate America meetings, tho. Gotta give 'em that.

I'm not so worried about us Western women losing our rights. I'm more worried that Muslim women in the West will lose all governmental protection. It's already happening in Nigeria and India. There's one set of laws for Muslim Nigerian women and Muslim Indian women (the Shari'a) and another set of laws for all other women. The secular Nigerian and Indian governments are too scared of pissing off Muslims extremists to enforce all women's rights.

Erika - That's so true. Even in part of CANADA they've caved to sahria for those "special communities." This is incredibly dangerous. Democracy is under attack and no one lifts a finger.
