A Healthy Fear

A quote from Diana West in her weekly column (which appears in 130 US newspapers), 18 September 2008

Is advocating freedom of speech "extreme" or "fascist"? Is opposing Islam's law, which knows no race, "racist"? Is supporting Israel (which these parties do far more than other European parties) "Nazi"? The outrageously empty epithets of the Islamo-socialist left seem calculated to stop thought cold and trigger a massive rejection reflex. In this way, resistance becomes anathema, and Islamic law, unchecked, spreads across Europe.

Does that sound "Islamophobic"? You bet. How can anyone who values freedom of conscience, equality before the law and other such Western jewels not have a healthy fear of Islamic law, which values none of these things? Incredibly, this is an emotion that is supposed to be suppressed – and, in Europe, on pain of prosecution.

"Islamo-socialist left", how apt

"Islamo-socialist left" is the perfect description of the collaboration of both groups, both muzzle free speech. The Left tolerates Islamofascism. It certainly isn't an enemy to them, why else refuse to name the problem or permit public discussion about the most negative aspects of Islam and the demographics that will change the future of Europe.

The bureaucrats in Brussels aren't going to change. The EU needs to scale back to a trading treaty only so that individual countries can have their right to self-determination restored. If France and Holland and some Scandinavian countries chose to be dhimmi states, let them. Their follies shouldn't be shared by all.
