Why islam may not be our biggest threat

In the UK a Labour "think" tank has come up with the latest assault on Western identity: Christmas should be downgraded. Because the exuberant way in which it is currently celebrated hurts the feelings of non-Christian minorities in the UK, apparently.

I am not going to go into much detail about what this "think" tank came up with. Just head on over to the Daily Mail and read the whole preposterous item for yourself. I am just going to point out something us anti-jihadists may be overlooking. The piece in the Daily Mail quotes a muslim spokesman for the Tories
Sayeeda Warsi, the Conservative spokesman on community cohesion, said: "Their comments betray a breathtaking misunderstanding of what it is to be British. These proposals could actually damage cohesion."

She added: "You don't build community cohesion by throwing out our history and denying the fundamental contribution Christianity has played and does play to our nation.

"As a British Muslim I can see that - so why others can't just staggers me."
We are used to hearing all about islamists with childish grievances and petulant demands. But one wonders how many more muslims there are in the West that feel embarassed by the measures taken in their name. Maybe that is the cause of the silence of the elusive moderates? Could it be that they do not speak up, because they feel a sense of shame in endorsing a culture that grovels at the first grumble coming from the malcontents? Isn't that quote the whole European (and western) problem in a nutshell, really? We get all these measures and rules foisted upon us, in the name of 'diversity' and 'tolerance'. But by whom?

Yes, islamists are an irritant and jihadists have caused all manner of tragedy and grief. But in the end is it not the Gutmenschen of the cultural marxist persuasion that prevent us from mounting a defence? is it not they who tell us we must accomodate ever more immigrants from our Mediterranean neighbors? Is it not they who refuse to intervene when muslim youth make a nuisance of themselves, while clamping down on any native response? Is it not they who are ultimately responsible for selling us and our traditions out, using islam as their all-purpose excuse?

Fjordman has already diagnosed islam as a secondary infection, preying on a weakened civilization infected with a form of cultural immune deficiency syndrome caused by cultural marxism. If ever there was a story to prove him right, this is it. If we do not stand up to the people promoting this malignant form of collectivism our civilization really doesn't stand a chance. Even against a two-bit, third-rate threat like islam or the islamists.
