Stuart Rose, on Ted R. Bromund:

Britain is in the grips of full blown appeasement. In a real sense, schools that urge their students to show imaginative sympathy for the “bombers” are doing more to weaken Britain’s resolve to fight Islamism than its decision to ban someone like Wilders. Dousing impressionable children in false ideas of what motivates jihadist violence and encouraging them to see the West as culpable for terrorist attacks ensures that the next generation of Brits won’t be able to resist the Islamist threat.
And, of course, while the government- national and local- are busy not offending official Muslim groups, they do a disservice to the many Muslims in Britain who don’t wish to be a protected national group, minded and bossed around by fundamentalists.
