continuing correspondence with chris.

Dear Mr. Doyle,

Thank you for your prompt response.

While I can appreciate that our mutual anglo history has its bloody and brutal moments, surely that is in the past. Correct me if I am in error, but what you are suggesting is that it is incumbent upon authorities to take into consideration the ethnicity of criminals when putting policies in place. Also, that since people of other nationalities do not approve of our past, we should therefore be ashamed for some reason.

If that is the case, then where is the shame from these other parties, Arabs and Muslims in the example, for the atrocities being carried out in the present day?

Where was the outcry against the misunderstanding that led to the hanging of two apparently homosexual teenagers in Iran, a Muslim country. ( ).

Where is the shame for the Pakistani Muslim man who shot his sister in Denmark for some alleged slight to the family honour? (,610572&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL&ic_itemid=869979) Admittedly, it is only alleged that it was for the family honour, but there have been photographs of this occurrence available. Unless, of course, it was all in the name of performance art and designed to upset the minorities. Since there has been no outcry from Muslim minorities in the mainstream media, I can only presume that it is all just another day in the world of Islam.

I won’t even bother with 9/11 or Bali, but what about Beslan? Or July 7th, 2005?

Where is the willingness of English Muslims to take action against the extremists in their midst? Apart from getting cartoon representations of pigs banned in council offices, they seem to be unwilling to take any sort of action. We white folks must take the steps to avoid their upset.

Over something that was supposedly finished over 500 years ago.

Your personal connection to Saint George is ultimately irrelevant in this instance (as is mine), as the flag does not just stand for a man who died for and within his faith.

After all these years, it stands for the country of England in all its strengths and weaknesses.

Surely English Muslims whether, immigrants from Arab backgrounds or otherwise (Jamaican, English-born, Somali ad infinitum), can hold some honour for a man who died as many of their people around the world wish to do. As a martyr.

Would you consider the possibility that people might be offended by your obvious disrespect for their history?

Yes, CNN have stirred the pot with this issue, and no doubt gotten plenty more attention than usual, but maybe there should be a meeting of minds on this. If England is to think about amending their cross to something less offensive to our global neighbours, then perhaps our Arab-Muslim friends can give some thought to being a bit flexible on things like….

Equality of religion, gender and sexuality.

Rehabilitation for criminals rather than amputation of limbs.

Counselling for those with sexual control issues, rather than stonings and other punishments for the victims.

Respect for the houses of worship for Jews and those of Christian traditions.

Respect for the laws and customs of the countries they migrate to, or grow up in, rather than a blatant contempt for them.

Thank you again for your time,

I find it a laugh that Muslims find references to the Crusades offensive when, technically, they won! Christendom didn't take back Jerusalem or the Holy Land back.

I had an e-mail conservation with a moonbat on another forum in July and I blogged on it here. It provides a little background on the Crusades and draws the thread to contemporary events.

While not letting Doyle completely off the hook by claiming he was misquoted, he fell into a common mistake when dealing with the media - allowing himself to be drawn into speculation.

PS - I've just linked back to you as an update

Well said!

As a Swedish guy I follow this subject with great interest. The Swedish flag is blue with a golden-yellow Scandinavian cross (and a cross also embellish every other flag in Scandinavia).

Unfortunately it seems like we have to get used of this. More will come...

However, the difference between us westerners and Muslims has never been more clear: Islam NEVER apologise. We westerners always do - including the late Pope John Paul II (due to the Judeo-Christian world view and the concept of individual freedom and responsibility)

Aren't the Muslims satisfied with their historical conquest of North Africa, Egypt, Middle East, Asia Minor, Iran, Central Asia and Northern India, with their colonisation of Africa and South East Asia?

Of course not. They want the whole globe. It's called Islam (= "submission").

But there's one more thing: The crusades were undisputedly defensive wars. So the leftist of today should be proud of the crusaders because they fought the imperialism of that age.

All the best from Sweden!

With all the things that have been done in the name of Islam in the last couple of years, the one that I detest the most was what took place in a village in Afghanistan (?) maybe 2 years ago.

If I remember rightly, it had something to do with a girl going outside unattended or a small boy from a lower section of society intermingled with a girl of higher social standing. The punishment was that the boy's SISTER paid the price in being raped (under tribal law) by 4 'men' of the tribe while the father was forced to watch.

Not only would that make me want to forever turn my back on such a ridiculous religion, it would also guarantee the painfully slow deaths of the 4 males and the tribal magistrate who decreed the punishment.

I might be a westerner who will gladly apologise when I am wrong - but there are no words nor any amount of pussy-footing around that will make up for having something like that being done to an innocent girl or her father.

Islam is not a religion - it is a cult, and one that needs to be abolished either by law or by force because NOTHING good comes from it.
