more intimidation

Whenever I rant on about immigration I'm aware that Europe has had its fair share of troubles with recent immigrants. In my previous post on Zuma I suggested part of the reason for this is the states indulgent approach to the fanatics. Anybody who's watched many American movies knows that you just don't negotiate with terrorists. The reason is that if terrorists get what they want, other terrorists will have good reason to think that they can benefit from similar tactics. The same applies to things like trashing theaters in Birmingham or violence over cartoons. The 'multi-cultural' policies of much of Europe give undue consideration to unpleasant, unelected individuals because they are religious leaders.

This article sums up the whole sad spectacle rather well. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a brave woman fighting (at great personal risk) for the rights that should be a given in Europe and shes a living example of the governments error. By acting ashamed of her they are giving support to the thugs who trying to kill her and they shouldn't be surprised when it happens again.

I agree. This is very sad. The law should be enforced in opposition to all human rights abuses. I agree that unpleasant religious fanatics who abuse human rights and intimidate people should not be tolerated in the name of 'religion' or cultural diversity or any other reason - this is unacceptable.
