Leaving will solve nothing. It will only embolden our enemies and lead to a day when we must return to finish what we should have done to begin with.

Benjamin Franklin once warned against being penny wise and pound foolish. That is precisely what we are engaged in right now. Our errors will come back to haunt us. Our errors are already haunting us.

One of the creeping, unanalyzed myths of our time is that it is somehow wrong to dislike Islam, or any part thereof, and wrong to take a dim view of its tenets and demands, and wrong to take a still dimmer view of the figure who founded it. I can practically hear the distant toting and grunts of disapproval. Poor Islam. Poor Muslims. Their beliefs are being mocked. How hurtful. How 'racist.' How terribly unfair.
No. It's not unfair at all. What's unfair is a demand for unearned deference and a unilateral exemption from the testing of ideas. What's unfair, indeed despicable, are efforts by Islamic groups to cow dissent and stifle criticism with a well-rehearsed pantomime of victim hood and the projection of false motives. Pretending to be hurt in order to assert one's will over others, even violently, or to gain unreciprocated favors, or to exert control over what others may say and think, is cowardly and malign. Let me say that once again. It's cowardly and malign.
