Reader comment on item: To End the [Palestinian] Violence

The Oxford dictionary of the English language defines political correctness as "the principle of avoiding language or behaviour that may offend particular groups of people; an excessive display of or belief in this". Militant Islam is ready to exploit political correctness to make a breakthrough in Europe and America.

I live in Britain where political correctness is very restrictive. To a lesser extent, the same thing is true of continental Europe. However political correctness does not prevent Muslim Extremists from preaching hatred of the Jews. According to Hannah Arendt, anti-Jewish racism is a chief characteristic of totalitarian regimes. Muslim Extremists hate the Jews. Hatred of the Jews is being expressed very clearly by Muslim Extremists. Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammad, the London based founder of the Islamic Liberation Party said in an interview: "American people must reconsider their foreign policy or their children will be sent back to them in coffins. The existence of Israel is a crime. Israel must be removed.....". Hatred is expressed primarily by suicide-attacks. During the last two years, the murder of 700 Israelis has been the chief consequence of anti-Jewish hatred. Nowadays, hate-crimes against the Jews are committed mainly by Muslim Extremists. Muslim Extremists hate the Jews regardless of where they were born. Militant Islam is a totalitarian ideology. Fascism and communism are now a thing of the past. By contrast, Militant Islam is the only coherent ideology left. Militant Islam's pursuit of war makes it very similar to the ideology of the former Soviet Union. Political Correctness is about keeping your mouth shut. I am not anti-Muslim and I respect ordinary Muslims. There is no such thing as a clash of civilisation. The problem at hand is the totalitarian ideology of Militant Islam.
