Stop Apologising To The Muslims

I read on the BBC website today that Germany’s interior minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has called for an EU-wide dialogue with Muslims in an effort to integrate them better. Mr Schaeuble has compared parts of the Islamic world to pre-Enlightenment Europe, and criticised both the burka veil and traditional Muslim attitudes to women, which is fair enough.

But what I take issue with is what he said next "We should not be arrogant but only helpful. After all, Christianity waged terrible conflicts for a few centuries until the process of Enlightenment took root". CHRISTIANITY WAGED TERRIBLE CONFLICTS?? There is no doubt that he was referring to the Crusades but Mr Schaeuble makes it sound as if it was Christianity’s fault for the Crusades.

Don’t get me wrong Mr Schaeuble is a hero. He was one of the few German politicians to support the United States liberation of Iraq. However my gripe (which is clear to see in what he said) is how we in the West feel it is necessary to apologise for the Crusades or see our current struggles with the Muslims as Christianity’s fault. Let’s get one thing clear, the Crusades was a war of self defence against the Muslim aggressors.

However despite this, the culture of apologising to the Muslims, for which the politically correct left are to blame, still continues today. Just look at the 7/7 bombings in London. Instead of people (especially on the left) saying ‘damn these filthy Muslims worshiping their fictitious sand god and heaping misery on the entire world’ they instead say ‘oh poor Muslims, they are acting like this because of Iraq’.

What these people forget is that the Iraqi liberation is a direct result of the terrorist attack on New York on September 11th 2001. However people forget this and the reason for this is because the West is losing the propaganda war to the Muslims. There are two reasons for this; the first is that the Muslims have the ability to act like the victims of a conflict even if they themselves started the conflict and the second reason is that the liberal media in the West are reinforcing the Muslims position as victims instead of telling the truth and supporting our troops.
