Of course, as some of us continue to try to point out, there are really only two ways to tackle these “problems.” The first is to change the opinions of all of the public. This could be tricky. It would require suppressing stories, misrepresenting events, possibly covering over the occasional beheading, the nuclear cheating, the circumvented law, the cancelled doctor, the terminated insurance policy, the high-handed directive, the repeated deception, the unequal application of the law, the unworkable economic model, the contorted cover-up, the inferior product, the false accusation, and generally trying to ensure that the general public stop noticing what is happening in the world around them.

Except that there is the internet of course, which is a nuisance. Although it is possible that some way could be found to shut down all social-networking and news sites and also persuade Google to bring up “daisies” and “recipes for apple pie” whenever anyone types “beheading” or “redistribution” or “uranium enrichment” or “Greece” into his search engine.

That is the start of one option. The other option is to de-link Islam and violence by ensuring that people stop carrying out acts of violence in the name of Islam; or to create ways for people actually to receive quality healthcare at affordable prices; or to seriously prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb, or to stop those in power from ‘making up the rules as they go along’, which as Daniel Hannan puts it, “means, in short, that there is no effective rule of law.” Those options are not easy either, but they are far easier than the first option, and ever less frequently tried.

  1. Other than thinking the wrong thing, it appears that Muslims better get their PR department up and running.

    100% of me thinks the islamists are the biggest threat to mankind since the pharmaceutical industry.

  3. At Least They’re Dressed For Their
    Own Funeral

  4. The educators train their mind to be blind,the students wont let them blind their minds as well, the more the merrier.

  5. Anonymous says:

    I agree 100% with 100% and the problem is HATRED of all that is civilized and love of DEATH. What a warped religion.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Excuse me for noticing, but this is happening in countries which condemned apartheid. There have been more killings since Mandela took over than in all the apartheid years since 1948. These people with the swords were some of his best friends. They thrive off slavery and death.

  7. Yechiel Baum says:

    his penis seems sharper than the blade

  8. Herman Christoffel Kuun says:

    Hiding away the truth will never solve the problem. The second option is also an impossibility. As a spokesman of Islam said in Luton – Muslims are not expected to keep the law of the country in which they live unless it is Shariah law.

  9. In 1984, it was easy to rewrite the truth on a daily basis because there was only one newspaper in town. Perhaps the "re-educators" of Britain should learn from their own utopian novels and take a page from the Chinese by taking control of all forms of information sources. They should first rewrite what is in the Quran, because it's one source of "truth" that certainly doesn't make Muslims look very peaceful. Or they could change the actual truth, like making it sowhen people are beheaded, maple syrup pours out rather than blood or when people blow up, candy spills out rather than guts. Or when a woman is being stoned for getting raped, she….yeah, candy and sweets aren't making that one any less acceptable. It's easier to change the "truth" than to change reality I guess.

  10. Danny Kidron says:

    I saw a muslim hoilding up a sign: "FOR PEACE IN THE WORLD ALL JEWS MUST DIE". Is that irony or what?

  11. But the photo is for a drama and all the people in it are "Actors"! it's a memorial of historical facts that happened before 1300 years ago. Just fun to know!

  12. Samy Youssef says:

    Void and not real, Islam never asked his follower to do that, and Muslim never thought like you are saying, give us some examples it u have some and don't just say it like this

  13. Samy Youssef says:

    Man, read the history, not far from u, just read what Muslim did in Spain to realized that u are just a pro racial, read b4 u talk

  14. Gil Gilman says:

    Samy Youssef what are you talking about? You do not know me or what my views are. What am I pro racial about in your view?

  15. But that sword was supplied by Washington, D.C. Who waged more than 200 wars after the 2nd WW against the peoplles of the world

Larger and larger swaths of people in the West keep coming back with the wrong opinion.

It was down to the press to expose the problem on behalf of everyone else.

There can be little doubt that the train of thought Secretary Kerry expressed is part of the unfortunate zeitgeist.

“The occupation of Palestine and Jerusalem is a wound that has sat on the body of the Muslim world for years and needs to be removed,” says Iran’s new “moderate” President, and the centrifuges keep spinning.

This latest decision tells us nothing about Israel or the West Bank. But it tells us what we need to know about the EU.

Disarmed despots are soon-to-be-dead despots. It is a lesson the North Koreans have taken on board with understandable eagerness.
