Because we have let them!

Reader comment on item: Those Danish Cartoons and Me
in response to reader comment: Danes apologize to all muslims of the world

In response to Timothy's question - Why is it that the most intolerant, prejudiced people are the ones standing up demanding everyone tolerate them without prejudice?

Because we have let them. When we stand up and say no more they will back down. They use death threats to attempt to keep us in line, make us acquiesce to their wants. This has been working way too long. Look around at some of the changes countries and companies have had to endure to shut them up. As long as it works they will use it. When it no longer works they will slither (yes, I said slither) back into that hole in the dessert they were exiled to thousands of years ago.

To them we need their oil and until we no longer need it they can do whatever we allow them to do. I say it is time to stop.
