Naming the enemy

Reader comment on item: Rampaging Islamists
in response to reader comment: Insulting Islam~

Submitted by Zahir (Canada), Sep 21, 2012 at 10:36

It seems to me that the civilized peoples of the world have finally had enough of the constant tantrums that Islam throws and are now going out of their way to insult Islam and its adherents. Political correctness in the western world has up until now prevented the people from naming Islam as the enemy, but it seems that this is now changing and more and more people are prepared to stand up and name Islam itself as the enemy. They no longer accept that it is a "minority of terrorists", or whatever mealy mouthed phrase the politicians use, that is the enemy. I fully expect to see people wearing those "banned" cartoons on their tee-shirts soon.
