Reader comment on item: In Europe, Remorse Has Turned to Masochism

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Apr 27, 2010 at 17:17

It is because Europe is beating itself that it is failing. It must stop this if it is to advance. While Europe wallows in guilt from past crimes, the Islamists are using it to gain momentum. Giving in to bullies such as Islamists will only make the Islamists stronger. Bullies hate weaklings, would respect their victims if they stood up to the bullies, not bend over backward and accept the beating.
