And About that “Self-Defense” Thing

Mark Steyn calls it as it is with regard to the West’s continued capitulation to the “Muslim world”:

Listening to Attorney General Holder, one is tempted to modify Trotsky:

You may not be interested in Islam, but Islam is interested in you. Islam smells weakness at the heart of the west. The post-World War Two order is dying: The European Union’s decision to toss a trillion dollars to prop up a Greek economic model that guarantees terminal insolvency is merely the latest manifestation of the chronic combination of fiscal profligacy and demographic decline in the west at twilight. Islam is already the biggest supplier of new Europeans and new Canadians, and the fastest-growing demographic in the western world.

Therefore, it thinks it not unreasonable to shape the chracter of those societies — not by blowing up buildings and airplanes, but by determining the nature of their relationship to Islam.

The appeasement even goes so far as endorsing the ritual mutilation of young girls:

Last week, the American Association of Pediatricians noted that certain, ahem, "immigrant communities" were shipping their daughters overseas to undergo "female genital mutilation." So, in a spirit of multicultural compromise, they decided to amend their previous opposition to the practice: They’re not (for the moment) advocating full-scale clitoridectomies, but they are suggesting federal and state laws be changed to permit them to give a "ritual nick" to young girls.

I suppose we’ll next see “ritual bleedings” to simulate human sacrifices for the Mayans among us. After all, we’d not want to offend the sensibilities of dead religions any more than we do the more modern variety.

Steyn does a great job of describing just how thoroughly we are sowing the seeds of our own destruction. If I didn’t have kids, I’d do the math and decide that I’m old enough that it really won’t matter. I do have kids, though, and so this kind of thing really does concern me.

Read the whole thing and see if it concerns you as well.
