Reader comment on item: Which Privileges for Islam?

Submitted by Paul Rhoads (France), Mar 15, 2005 at 08:53

This idea is clear, simple, practical. I support it with enthusiasm.

It will be opposed by multi-culturalists and other relativists who have lost faith in Western Culture, including a rule of Law that does not merely endorce majority choices or succeed in manuvering certain preferances (sometimes 'conservative' ones, but almost always leftist ones) into place. It must be understood that a win against the Islamic extreemist will be a win against the 'living constitutionalists', the multiculturalists, the relativists; thus our current crisis is THE crisis of what has been called the 'culture wars'.
