A quick housekeeping notice… There appears to be some sad nutcases who mistake my criticism of militant Islamism to mean an aversion against all muslims.
This is not the case. I oppose ALL types of extremism, totalitarianism and intolerance, whether it’s communism, fascism or Islamism. Speaking out against ISIS recruitment and demands to enforce sharia law should not be interpreted to mean anything more but just that; if Europe saw a dangerous rise in militant KKK lynch mobs, I would write about that. But the current threat is radicalized Islamists, who ruin everything for the vast majority of immigrants in general and muslims in particular.
I thought I was pretty clear on the issue before, but apparently not clear enough.
So, please, I’m getting tired of deleting hate-filled nonsense from the comments inbox. Stop wasting my time and yours. If you can’t accept the basic premise of respectful, slur-free debate, there are other blogs and forums.
