Home-grown horror

I’ve never been clear why opposition to Muslim barbarity centres so often on immigration. Case in point: “The jihadist who beheaded the American journalist James Foley is believed to be British born militant from London …”.

UK Prime Minister Cameron who, unlike his American counterpart, at least showed sufficient gravity to call his holiday short, said: “This is deeply shocking. But we know that far too many British citizens have travelled to Iraq and travelled to Syria to take part in extremism and violence. And what we must do is redouble all our efforts to stop people from going.”  And, maybe, to promote western culture instead of apologising for it?

  1. Why is it unclear to you, Peter? It is Islam that is the central focus, not immigration. Absolutely, promote Western culture, but part of promoting Western culture is to criticise totalitarian systems of servitude such as Islam. And there is no point in promoting Western culture if you do not bother to defend it when necessary, such as stopping Islamic immigration when its practitioners are actively at war against us.
