While it is true that Israeli forces stayed put on neighboring lands after the 1967 war, subsequent governments eventually withdrew from the Sinai, southern Lebanon, and Gaza—areas from which attacks were and are still staged against it. The Economist’s choice of "appealing” is an odd modifying adjective of the noun "enemy,” particularly for Iran, which has both promised to wipe out Israel and is desperately attempting to find the nuclear means to reify that boast.

On page 330 of the 2002 book Islam and Dhimmitude, the great historian Bat Ye'or writes:
It was in the early 1970s, with the outbreak of Arab Palestinian terrorism worldwide that dhimmitude erupted on European soil through violence and death deliberately inflicted on one category: the Jews, who were singled out as in the Nazi period by their religion.

The horror of these young girls -- terror-stricken victims, who live in homemade concentration camps -- is given the imprimatur of the West in its complicit silence. The media goes to extraordinary lengths to whitewash these crimes and disconnect the motive for these murders. The West looks away as more and more girls fall victim to the sharia in the West.

It’s only a few weeks until Passover, a holiday that Jews throughout the world will be celebrating. And throughout the world, Muslims appear to be doing their part to help in the celebrations. In Milan, home of trendy fashions, a Moroccan Muslim man was arrested for organizing a bomb plot against a synagogue. Mohamed Jarmoune, a namesake of the prophet, had set up a covert Facebook group which included American and British Muslims to crowdsource the terror using social media.

In country after European country, the post-modern charade of the bliss of multiculturalism -- the idea that all cultures are equal and can coexist peacefully side-by-side in any given country, and that Muslim immigrants should be allowed to keep their cultural traditions rather than integrate into wider European society -- is unravelling.

"In time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell
In the world we live nowadays, there is a very pertinent question: What’s right and what’s wrong? Is there any room for ‘gray’ in between? Can anyone be a "moderate” extremist par opposition to an "extremist...?”

As long as we were dealing with Islamic terrorists arriving in Western Europe from the Middle East and not part of local society, it was possible to monitor them and thwart their terror intentions. They were foreigners. Yet what happens when the terrorists are French or European locals of Muslim descent who were born in Europe? To what extent can their actions be monitored and their terror activities curbed? It’s much more difficult, and this is the European nightmare, which keeps growing, as illustrated by the brutal murder in Toulouse.

I’ve just read a review by Paul Berman in The New Republic of "Silenced: How Apostasy and Blasphemy Codes Are Choking Freedom Worldwide”, written by Paul Marshall and Nina Shea, and published by the Oxford University Press. It’s an examination of how fundamentalist Islam has come to dominate the Muslim world, and of how it is penetrating and infecting Europe and the USA. The authors apparently detail the spreading influence of narrow and bigoted intolerance, and the host of examples they provide, as quoted by the reviewer, must cause distress and anxiety to all who believe in freedom and liberal democracy.
Even the prophet of Islam misunderstands its peaceful teachings. "Egyptian Cleric Salem Abu Al-Futouh: The Prophet Muhammad Foretold the Islamic Conquest of Rome," from MEMRI, December 30, 2011:
