Intimidating the West

Another good article by Daniel Pipes.

Excerpts:

What rouses Muslim crowds and what does not is somewhat unpredictable. Rushdie’s novel was not nearly as offensive to Muslim sensibilities as a host of other writings, medieval, modern, and contemporary. Other American Evangelists said worse things about Muhammad than did Falwell (Jerry Vines called the Muslim prophet “a demon-possessed paedophile who had 12 wives,” without violence ensuing). Why did Norwegian preacher Runar Søgaard’s deeming Muhammad “a confused paedophile” remain a local dispute while the Danish cartoons went global?

No conspiracy lies behind these six rounds of inflammation and aggression, but examined in retrospect, they coalesce and form a single, prolonged campaign of intimidation, with more sure to come. The basic message — “You Westerners no longer have the privilege to say what you will about Islam, the Prophet, and the Qur’an, Islamic law rules you too” — will return again and again until Westerners either do submit or Muslims realise their effort has failed.

That last paragraph is a telling one, isn’t it? As long as we give in to this type of bullying by Muslims, we are already in dhimmitude.
