Quote of the Day

"The civil rights lobbies are working from a passť play book. They are blind to the lethal nature of the new Salafist totalitarianism. They won't recognize that we are facing an irrationalist movement immune to compromise and dedicated to achieve its ends of controlling every aspect of daily life, every process of the mind, through indiscriminate mass slaughter. It is a culture obsessed with death, a culture that despises women, a culture devoted to mad hatreds not just of Americans and Jews everywhere, but of Muslims anywhere who embrace a less totalitarian, less radical, more humane view of Islam. These Muslims are to be murdered, and have been in their thousands, along with "the pigs of Jews, the monkeys of Christians" and all the "dirty infidels".
-Harold Evans, making a lot of sense, in the Guardian. I'm working on a similar piece for next week's day-job paper, and I'll post it here next Wednesday. Posted by Stephen Silver at August 17, 2006 09:46 PM
