Thought of the Day
Geller, the narrative goes, made Americans less safe by provoking radical Muslims, as though Muslims have no responsibility to act like decent human beings -- as though, faced with the prospect of a cartoon of their prophet, Muslims have no choice but to grab guns and go a-huntin'. But that's nonsense. What truly spurs radical Muslims into violence is the well-evidenced belief that if they kill enough Muhammad cartoonists, soon people will stop drawing cartoons of Muhammad.
And I'll add that the Muslims seem to be winning on this as proved by the ill-thought-out statements of too many Americans on the left and right who criticize Geller for exercising her God given right to express herself but say nothing about the murderous Jihadis.
