Steyn on Point and on Line

Mark Steyn has a lot of bad to say about the state of the World vis a vis the Juice, for whom there is the oldest hatred. One sure way of looking at the fairness of the situation is to switch the parties around, as Mark does here:

Just last month terrorists attacked Bombay, seized hostages, tortured them, killed, and mutilated their bodies. The police intercepts of the phone conversations between the terrorists and their controllers make for lively reading:

“Pakistan caller 1: ‘Kill all hostages, except the two Muslims. Keep your phone switched on so that we can hear the gunfire.’

“Mumbai terrorist 2: ‘We have three foreigners, including women. From Singapore and China.’

“Pakistan caller 1: ‘Kill them.’

“(Voices of gunmen can be heard directing hostages to stand in a line, and telling two Muslims to stand aside. Sound of gunfire. Sound of cheering voices.)”

“Kill all hostages, except the two Muslims.” Tough for those Singaporean women. Yet no mosques in Singapore have been attacked. The large Hindu populations in London, Toronto, and Fort Lauderdale have not shouted “Muslims must die!” or firebombed Halal butchers or attacked hijab-clad schoolgirls. CAIR and other Muslim lobby groups’ eternal bleating about “Islamophobia” is in inverse proportion to any examples of it. Meanwhile, “moderate Muslims” in London warn the government: “I’m a peaceful fellow myself, but I can’t speak for my excitable friends. Nice little G7 advanced western democracy you got here. Shame if anything were to happen to it.”

But why worry about European Muslims? The European political and media class essentially shares the same view of the situation — to the point where state TV stations are broadcasting fake Israeli “war crimes.” As I always say, the “oldest hatred” didn’t get that way without an ability to adapt:...

Absolutely chilling to the supporters of Israel.


I have criticized Steyn articles in the past, but I agree, this one is a well-written and devastating critique of modern anti-Semitism...and in Europe, of all places, which should have learned by now. "the Juice" reference lost me though...
(the above was me, not "Mark", whoever that is!)
