Mountain, Meet Molehill.

Somali freedom advocate Ayaan Hirsi Al on restricting certain religious movements and not others, even though those others are more likely to kill you:

(h/t TheOtherMcCain)

“I’m not being rightwing. The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don’t understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right.”

The Guardian

In Europe things like “right” and “left” are a bit more convoluted, but the point remains.  We avoid offending Islam because they are more likely to “offend” back.
