No optimistic choices

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: The real reason to fear

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Feb 14, 2008 at 05:32

Unless you're ready to convert to Islam , you can't be serious about what you say, can you?

Again that misleading obsessive comparison with Hitler and Nazi Germany that instead of clarifying things makes them more obscure. But OK! Let's use it! Think for a moment what would have happened if the Western leaders had thought in 1941 the way you do! "We are not afraid that Nazis will take over Europe (and Asia). We are afraid of Stalin who will save us from Hitler". That way of thinking between 1939-1941 had very sad consequences. Its change in 1941 saved the West from certain ruin.

If any lesson is to be learnt from recent European history, then this : you can't win against one dictatorship or totalitarianism without allying oneself with another. You have to choose between two evils. "A dictator that will save us from Islam" , a new Charles Martel, is a much much lesser evil than Islamic takeover!!!
