A quote from Stephen Pollard at his Spectator blog, 25 January 2008
The Brussels Journal is a site which many American conservatives read about matters European. Unfortunately, [m]any otherwise well informed American conservatives get their information about Europe - specifically, the influence of Islam in Europe - through a site which views Islam itself as a cancer to be fought and which regards an Islamic takeover of Europe as something which has effectively already happened.
This distorts so many Americans' outlook, seeing Europe as essentially written off to Islam. The Brussels Journal should be seen for what it is: a hard line anti Muslim propaganda sheet. [...] [I]t's one thing dealing with facts and rational analysis. It's quite another when pernicious sites like the Brussels Journal tar all Muslims with the same extremist brush and distort the news to portray Islam itself as destroying our society rather than Islamic extremists. [...]
Yes, we in the West need to be relentless in defending Western values and free speech in the wake of Islamist demands. And it's liberals of all people who ought to be in the front line of that fight, defending those with lifetyles and attitudes which Islamists would kill.
But we need to be just as relentless in remembering what those values are, one of which is tolerating those of a different faith, when their faith does not impinge on our values. And it isn't Muslims who have sought to ban the story of the three pigs - it was 'brain-dead white "liberals" '.
Sentences like Wake me up when the Muslims have gone and the attitudes they reveal are the mirror image of the Islamists' own prejudices, and have no place in a proper defence of Western values.
A remark from Paul Belien:
The piece, Mr. Pollard, was satire, as even American conservatives will understand (though not British brain-dead white liberals). The author has not resigned, has not become a drug addict, is not asleep and, hence, you will not have to wake him up when the Muslims have gone.
By the way: the title of this piece is ironic, too. We wish you all the best.
