We must continue to speak truth openly, regardless of their threats

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by Michael Kocian (United States), Sep 26, 2006 at 11:32

It's clear that political correctness is a victory for the Islamists and other people wishing to stifle truth. We must continue to speak the truth in the face of such threats, else hand them a defacto victory. Appeasement of any evil in the world has never brought forth peace, but just the opposite. Evil intentions will not subside with the lack of opposition, and we must oppose Islam openly and in every way when it shows it's evil intentions, sometimes disguised with a "nice face" as in the case of CAIR, or not so disguised in the face of coward Islamists who cut off heads, shoot nuns in the back, while hiding their physical face. Appeasement is not an option, but a slow and certain death sentence for our culture, and then ourselves.
