Europe's backbone

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Saxon Harding (Canada), Feb 10, 2006 at 06:12

The reason Europe has found its backbone can be found in their recent experiences. As anybody knows who has been bullied, at some point you turn and stand. You start off hoping the bully is actually a reasonable person. Once it becomes clear they are not, you realize you will have to fight.

What Muslims don't understand about the west is that when it fights, it plans to win, no matter what. The US and the UK will come to this point too - it will just take a few more incidents.
